Is it better to burn out or fade away?
Oblivion lead singer Simon Kagan is used to being in the spotlight for his model good looks and his voice, not because of the epic ending to Oblivion's last show on their home turf in California. That unforgettable night rocked Oblivion in more ways than one, and now the journey back seems almost impossible.
The only bright spot is Margo. Margo, the one woman he'd been sure would never be more than a hot ride in the dark. Margo, who would never be his.
Except she is, for now. But taking one dream and trading it for another isn't supposed to hurt this much.
As long as Margo never realizes the man she fell for no longer exists, maybe he won't lose everything that matters due to just one all-consuming night.

"GOOD STORY BUT I'M FEELING THE URGE TO SCREAM"
And my need to scream is because Simon and Margo's love story won't end with this book, it'll settle in a fairly good place for them - but there's a lot more angst and drama to come.
After the shocking cliffhanger of an ending in the previous book Simon, Margo and the rest of Oblivion are left shattered and shocked at the heartbreaking news about Simon's voice. Margo makes a deal with the Devil (her Mother) and whisks Simon away to her family's retreat on a Caribbean Island - a retreat where Margo tenderly nurses, caringly guides and ultimately tries to helps him recover. But there's a lot of unanswered questions a to whether Simon's voice will ever be the same and a lot of unanswered questions as to where their very passionate relationship is headed.
This had A LOT of steamy sex scenes throughout as these two lovers couldn't keep their hands off each other - however there's a fragility and a certain insecurity to their relationship too. Simon doesn't know what the future holds for him musically and is terrified to find out. So they lock themselves away from prying eyes, from the fans, the paparazzi insanity that now surrounds Simon and all the worried and sympathetic looks from his friends. While Simon and Margo are enjoying the Island and each other... they are growing closer and closer each day. However, even on a private deserted beach, Simon is recognized and a whole new avenue of opportunity opens up to him - which may just be his salvation. Back home Simon makes some life-changing decisions - however, can Simon talk commitment-shy Margo into sharing more than just stolen sexual moments... could she risk it all and move in with the tamed bad boy of Rock.
Worth a credit? Yes, this was a brilliantly narrated dual POV addition to book 3... but that's where I think it should've been put - in book 3 and not dragged out over 3 books. There were some very romantic sweet times between Simon and Margo and copious amounts of hot sex which was enjoyable but I felt it was a bit of a filler to make the story longer instead of continuing the story in book 3. There was all the latest news from the other couples from Oblivion who've found love, 2 births, 1 death and Simon and Margo are in a good place right now. But I felt the ending seemed rushed and there were unanswered questions - and guess what?.... they'll be answered as Simon and Margo's story continues in book 3.7 of the series - so yet another book and yet another credit to spend before we get the much needed HEA for Simon.
I love this series so much and ugh Simon and Margo. The Kai and wen narration combined with amazing author talent its great!! I am definitely telling friends!!
"Love this series!!!!"
Most definitely! I love Taryn Elliot and Cari Quinn's books. They're amazing writing combined with Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross' ability to bring the story to life is absolute perfection.
I love the part where Simon tells Margo he loves her.
Kai and Wen's narrations are the best I have ever listened to. They convey so much emotion it's hard not to get pulled into the story.
Yes, once I got started it was hard to put down.
I am so in love with this series. Every book that's released is better than the last. I cannot wait wait until the next one is released. Simon has definitely given Gray, who is my favorite in the band, a run for his money. Any book in this series is definitely an auto buy for me.
"WOW WOW WOW"
This was the perfect answer to where Destroyed left off. What a beautiful way for two people to learn more about each other than through silence and body language. Well written and just as well narrated. I was skeptical of the male narrator because I didn't really like him in Destroyed, but he absolutely worked for this followup novella.
I am a huge fan of this series and can't wait to start the nextbook.
I recommend this series to anyone who wants a love story that's gritty and not always pretty.
It is definitely one of the best I've listened to.
I loved everything about their performance.
Consumed by Taryn Elliot and Cari Quinn was another great book in the series. Simon's life completely changes after a horrible ending to their last show. Simon has Margo to help make sure that he rests his voice and takes care of himself. I loved reading more of Margo and Simon's story. This is a must read series.
"Consumed by greatness"
Yes. I absolutely love this series. Consumed is the continuation of Simon and Margo's story. There is intrigue, sex, with twists and turns and surprises. Taryn Elliot and Cari Quinn always keep you wanting more.
The whole lost in oblivion series.
They keep you engaged in every book they do. And you never want to stop listening until it ends and the problem is who has hours to listen at a time.
Intriguing, sexy that keeps you consumed
Cannot wait for the next book in the series
I loved listening to the story unfold and the characters' reactions in scenes.
Simon was my favorite character in this story as we got see him recover from his injury and also see his relationship with Margo deepened. His love for Margo was evident in this story and he seemed to have matured.
I love how Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross bring the story and the characters to life for me. They have a distinct way of portraying each character and their personalities.
Lost in Oblivion series written by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott is one of the best rockstar series I've read and listened to.
