Publisher's Summary

Gavin is the perfect rockstar front man - moody, confident, and sexy as hell. But no matter how famous he becomes, he can't shake the heartache of his childhood. Only Sophie can take the edge off. 

Sophie falls for Gavin the moment she realizes his swagger is just a front to hide his wounded core. All she wants is to save him from himself. And once she gives him her heart, she never gets it back. 

She makes him feel...seen; he makes her feel needed. It's a desperate kind of love, but it's what works for them. 

Until it doesn't. 

When the tabloids get a hold of Gavin's family secret, the backlash threatens everything he holds dear...including his relationship with Sophie. It doesn't help matters that the band's gorgeous guitarist is ready to step in and be what Sophie needs. 

With their life together burning out, Gavin and Sophie must decide if their white-hot connection can be reignited....or if it will consume them. 

Irish narrator Lee Brophy does an amazing job bringing this story to life. Playing at Love, the second book in the series, is now available!

Not for me but might be the perfect book for you

I feel like this could be a great book for someone else, it just wasn't it for me. There were alot of things that bothered me on a personal level. Before you go in, be aware that this book is written in 3 different POVs and you are not aware of the change in POV until you start reading.

As far as narration goes, I understand that the 2 male characters are Irish, but the narrator has a very thick accent and I found it to be distracting more times than not. I had to backtrack a number of times just to figure out what was being said.

Full of feels!!

I love a good first love story especially when they’re put through the wringer! The storyline was touching. Lee Brophy made is so listeners can felt the emotions. I mean, I might have wanted to yell a few times… I mean, really? Are you even paying attention?!!? Open up and look around! I was left feeling me confused… am I really pulling/rooting for Gavin?!?! You’ll are gonna feel and LOVE this one! The connection is real. The amazing love story and rock stars… super models… can you go wrong?

Gavin and Sophie are such raw, intense, and strong characters. Totally not your normal rock star book!! All these characters are so multi-dimensional. I mean, Colin, Gavin, and Sophie and all the other secondary characters have suffered. Enjoy the feels!

Fun and entertaining!

Fun and entertaining. Being a SoCal native I loved the setting, and having just returned from a European vacation. I enjoyed the visualization of the scene in Paris. The characters are relatable and true to theirselves. I had fun and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Excellent First Book

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. This was a very exciting book. Gavin and Sophie have a great romance. There are some great ups and some crazy downs. For such a young romance, can time withstand their love? I have to say that this story left me hanging in the end, but I'm hoping the author will convert her second book to audio soon. I hate having to move on to another book and not finish this series. The author did a great job with the character and story development. The narrator did an excellent job with the characters and their personalities.

Wow this is an amazing book.

Wow. This book is well worth the read but the audio version with Lee Bropy is a very swoon worthy listen.

This story spans many years with many characters but it is easy to follow.

I love these characters and will definitely be continuing with the series.

Get ready to feel!

Rockstar romances can be fun and flirty, your typical singer finds the wallflower. Not the case with this one! Lara Ward Cosio takes you back to high school, when Sophie and Gavin were students, the band just starting out and their love strong. Circumstances as they are, the two are separated and when they are brought back together, life will never be the same. For me when I listen, I get drawn in, living the life of the characters as the story goes on. These two are on an emotional roller coaster, and I took the ride with them. Their love is so strong, it's easy to feel it, their pain so real, it made my heart hurt. From Ireland to California, with the members of the band whom I love, and the lifestyle they all live, I took the journey hoping to get to Gavin and Sophie's happy ending, but there is more in store for this couple, and I can't wait to hear it!

All I can say is WOW to the narration. This is my first book with Lee Brophy and he is amazing. Bringing has an amazing Irish brogue to the band right along with a switch to a female American is simply extraordinary. He is expressive and emotional as he brings the story to life. I will definitely be watching for more from this talented narrator.

So many feels and great narration! 5 Stars.

Wow. This book was such an emotionally charged ride. We get to experience Sophie and Gavin’s relationship journey from teen love affair to full fledge adult relationship and all the highs and lows in between. It was an emotional, difficult, sometimes painful, but ultimately beautiful love. That was my favorite thing about Tangled Up In You: the raw and realness of the story. Yes, it’s a love story, but the pain feels true, the emotions are so real, and the love can be felt a mile away. Sophie and Gavin broke my heart, but Lara Ward Cosio did beautiful work of piecing it back together little by little. The writing is exquisitely honest, the characters well developed, and the story grabs you and doesn’t let go. This story doesn’t have a HEA yet, but I’m beyond anxious to get to the next book and see what’s in store for Gavin and Sophie.

Narration by Lee Brophy was amazing! This was my introduction to his work and I was beyond I’m pressed. His Irish accent was delicious and effortless. His performance as Gavin was everything. He brought the rockstar to life and had me swooning, cheering, crying, and falling for him over and over again. Mr. Brophy managed to give so many characters distinction and made nearly ten hours of audio breeze on by. I’m really, really hoping that he returns to narrate the following book because he did such a phenomenal job. He is Gavin! Plus, I just need more of that incredibly seductive voice in my life. 5 Stars.

An amazing audio

So I've read the book and then I got the chance to listen to the audio. All I can say...the accent...the accent added to the story so much.
This rocker love story, its the raw story of a relationship, the good, the bad and the ugly. Be ready for all the emotions!
