When the plastic snaps wide open, Jules finds herself in a vulnerable and awkward situation with Brennan and her band.

Definitely. It's a great story. Not easy or hearts and flowers by any means but it teaches an important lesson on how much children are influenced by traumatic events and even things that to adult eyes appear innocuous
Never read a book like it before. Really unique
The talk between Julia and her brother, when they are adults.
I felt a lot of different emotions. Some parts good, other sad. Most of all it made me think
"All screwed up !"
Yes I would. It was a very good book that touches on mental illness and addictions
I have not really read anything similar
No I have not
Cry more than anything I felt my heart fall for the main character a lot during the book
This book is dark and deep it deals with mental health and demons of the heart.
But also is a very wonderful book to listen to.
"WOW! LOVED IT!!"
Loved the voice. loved the real life drama.this was a completely new genre for me and it rocked.
I had the book on my TBR. I haven't had a lot of time to sit and read read as of late so I've been using audible. I have no complaints about this story. the story was great! Love drama confusion real life stuff. with a good choice of a HEA.
She makes you think about the meaning of love. Soul mates. they do exist. no matter if you find yours or not there is one out there for everyone.
I really liked her. but and i hate to say it but i only had a problem with her female vs male change over. they weren't much different from each other. not like I'm used to. but oooh how i loved and i mean LOVED how she got in to character!
"love this story!!!!"
Amazing Must Read
Lucy Lowe was amazing reading it.
Anything to do with Jules and Brennan I love them together....
I laughed and cried.....
I love Alisa Mullens Books and thus book is my favorite to read it listening to Lucy made it an even better story......Amazing......everyone Must listen to this story....
"Really enjoyed the narrator"
Suspenseful, Thrilling, Surprising
The twists and turns in the story.
She had a quirky way of saying things that I found endearing. Really enjoyed her narration.
Alissa Mullen is a brilliant writer. There were so many details that she thought of in this story. It was so suspenseful. The blurb doesn't do the story justice as there are so many components that will blow your mind. The story follows through the life of Jules Delaney from when she was a young girl. This story really reminds you how things that happen to you when you are younger can really dictate how you turn out when you are older.
4.5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!!! For storyline
2 Crazy Ass Stars! For audiobook
I started out listening to this audiobook yesterday. It was a great storyline. I didn't care for the narrator at all though. She made it very hard to follow the story. I couldn't get lost in it as I kept hearing her natural accent come out and skew words. I feel a narrator should be more articulate and enunciate words correctly. I get that narrators take on accents of characters but I could not really differentiate between characters at times. It got to be annoying so I switched to the kindle version. Had I just read the book, this would have been a 5 star Crazy Ass Must Read but I just can't get over how annoyed I was with audiobook.
This book had everything with feels and angst and drama. Oh, and hot sexy times. I loved Brannon. He's definitely BBF material.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy.
"An awesome story about self discovery!"
I absolutely loved this story. The journey to self discovery and love are not always the easiest and this is proven here. Growing up in a town where murder and rape are not heard of three young friends deal with the aftermath of the tragedy. Playing a game that would tell them their future one day while hanging out, it will change everything for Julia. Now she is a famous Rock star who enjoys the lifestyle! But she blocks out the past. Upon meeting the ever so hot Brennan she starts to feel things she hasn't in awhile, but he has a secret that will make it all come crashing down. After a series of unfortunate circumstances, Julia is now on her own learning who she is after making chances in her life. One Brennan show up unexpectedly and things will never be the same. I hope I haven't given away too much. All in all I loved this book. The narrator bought the characters to life. I can't wait to start the next one to see what life hands Julia and Brennan.
Liked the story. Kinda had a hard time sometimes understanding the narrator. Her accent. Other than that I really liked it.
"my kind of book"
I loved this book. I had no clue what I was getting into but now that it's finished I'm so glad I did. The book had so much passion and growth and I loved the chemistry between all the characters. Jules was an awesome main character and I love that she was so strong even when she was weak. This story had me wanting and needing to finish faster than possible in a good way. Nearing the end I just got even more excited to figure out the loose ends I am so glad to have been gifted this book for a review. Will check.out more from Alisa Mullen :-)
"Perfect! I loved this book..."
I love both versions equally! Audiobooks are so much easier for on the go listening. I also love the fact that I can listen to the audiobook version while I am working on Facebook, doing housework or doing homework.
Julia Delaney is my favorite character. She grows from a confused young girl into the very confident Jules Delaney major rockstar. She has a set of rules she lives by. She is a very strong woman, she lives hard and loves hard.
I haven't listened to any of Lucy Lowe's other performances before. But, after this one I may just have to seek some of them out.
I did want to listen to it all in one sitting. However, unfortunately, real life kept interrupting me.
I can't wait for the other parts of this series in audio and in print versions.
"Love Love and Love"
Kick ass rock star and lead singer for Love Sick Ponies Julia(Jules) Delaney may seem like your typical gorgeous female rock and roller. Living the lifestyle of rocker, she parties hard, and has her fair share of nightly men. On the outside she appears to be confident in who she is. But memories of her past come flooding back, threatening everything she has worked for. Memories triggered by a beautiful mysterious man in the crowd at one of her shows…Brennan Curtis. Swoon! Brennan embodies everything Julia fears. He comes into her life fast and like a bull. Tearing down her emotional walls. Leaving her vulnerable and exposed. She begins to rethink her life. After discovering hidden truths about Brennan, herself, and her past, she is pushed to make the hard decision of figuring herself out. On her path to self-discovery, she finds out more than she expected to and Alisa Mullen takes you on the roller coaster ride with Jules Delaney. I cried, I laughed, I got angry and threw things, I blamed the world. But I fell in love with this book and I am waiting not so patiently for book 2. Thank you Alisa
