Summary

When you've lived the reckless rock and roll lifestyle Rick Fars has it's no surprise to learn he's been there, done that, and in Rick's case he's most likely left his T-shirt behind on some woman's bedroom floor. As a wealthy playboy bachelor Rick's never been taken by any woman, but he's taken plenty and often.

Outwardly, Rick is living the dream; however, appearances can be deceptive, and behind closed doors Rick's life is far more complex than most would realize. When the past and the present collide, will Rick's future finally help him to know his own mind?

Exhale and Move On

Not what you would expect with a rock star book, it is so much more! This is a story of finding out who you are, what will make you happy and finding value in yourself. I am worried if I say too much I might give spoilers so I will leave it with this. I loved this book and am sure if you are interested you will too.
Narration was perfect for this book!

An extremely hot, sappy, unconventional romance!

This story blew me away! It had a little bit of everything I love! The humor had be giggling the whole time. The extremely, hot, passion between the MC and his male and female lovers was explosive. Then wrap it all up in a story of self discovery and beautiful poly-romance just made my heart burst with joy!

It took me a little while to get used to Bolten Hill's narration. It felt a little dry at times. At other times I was able to fall into his voice and enjoy his telling of the story. I think he found his rhythm more as the story went on.

I would love to read more by K. L. Shandwick! This story was really well written and I loved that it wasn't just a traditional male/female romance. It was refreshing to hear a story talk about bi relationships outside of paranormal romance.

sexy, unconventional love - fantastic narrator

story 4.5 stars, narrator 5 stars

I read Exhale and Move On about a year ago and loved it, so I jumped at the opportunity to listen to the audio version. I think I enjoyed it even more second time around. The narrator had a fabulously deep, gravelly voice, absolutely perfect for hot rocker Rick Fars, he nailed it.

Rick Fars is the ultimate rock star. Sex, drugs and rock n roll all the way, but there's a lot more to him that meets the eye. He's so much deeper than his public persona. Rick is complex, he has integrity despite his womanising ways. When you dig down, he's lonely and has a lot of love to give but he's raw, jaded and has been burnt. He also has a huge secret even his closest friends don't suspect.

I loved Rick, he has a reality about him and I really felt his emotional struggles. Underneath his mask, he has a heart of gold and pure sexiness. There were times I just wanted to give him a big old hug.

I don't know if KL Shandwick has experience behind the scenes of a rock band, but I can just imagine it is exactly how she portrays it and I love the insights she brings and the camaraderie between the band members and friends. She has beautifully written a realistic but very unconventional love story and that sums up Rick perfectly. If he can put his past hurt behind him and trust in what is in front of him, the unconventional could be exactly what he's been searching for all along.

Overall a page turner of a story with the feels I wanted and a whole load of sexy steamy hotness, (there is mf, mm and mmf - definitely my cup of tea!) I loved listening to this, the narrator really brought Rick and his story to life. Highly recommended and I'm excited to read and listen to more by this author, so many intriguing characters!

Easily enjoyed as a standalone

Bolton Hill truly brings the character of Rick Fars to life in this audible version of Exhale and Move On.

I've not yet 'read' the other novels in which Rick appears so can say absolutely that this can be thoroughly enjoyed as a standalone.

Any reader who is in love with love will embrace this perhaps less traditional story of a man's journey to love and fulfillment, regardless of how it may be perceived by others.

A burning hot 4 stars 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Great narrator, great story

The only other books I've read by KL are in the Last Score series which are also rock star romance, so I guess was expecting similar. Though, this was a MFM romance.

What I got was quite different from what I expected! Not in a bad way though - what I mean is the amount of sex. I didn't expect it from Shandwick but it was a pleasant surprise, it was SUPER hot and those scenes were brilliantly and descriptively written. (Although there may have been slightly too much sex for me).

The story itself flowed well, based around relationships that rock star Rick Fars is exploring, alongside a charity concert he is organising with other friends in the business. It was cool to hear a little from Gibson again, and it definitely makes me want to read some of the others stories!

AUDIO

The narrator - Bolton Hill - was new to me but he really brought the character of Rick to life, and made the sex scenes even more hot than they already were! He made it easy to distinguish between characters too which I liked.

Hot hot hot!

Rick fars story is a very angsty, emotional and heartbreakingly good journey. That is also extremely hot! But shows you love comes in all shapes and sizes.
This can be listened to as a standalone but if you want the story to be heard at its best then you need to read the others from this author.
The narrator did a really good job, he absolutely nailed it in my opinion.

Loved it

I loved reading this book and equally loved listening to this audio version. The narrator Bolton Hill suited this story perfectly and made it a joy to listen to. I listened to it whilst doing housework and I was so into the story that I got everything done in double time. I would definitely recommend you listen to it. You will not be disappointed.

Fabulous romance!

I love a good rock star romance and this one lives up to all expectations! With some very hot interludes we see the budding romance between Rick, Lenny and Coral. I loved that it took time and addressed potential issues and attendant anxieties. Well narrated by Bolton Hill, this audio moves along at a cracking pace, and held my attention throughout. 💖💖💖

And Breathe!

As a new 'listener' on Audible, I enjoyed this book and I'm more than pleased I used earphones! Rick comes over as being
totally arrogant, but is obviously jealous of his friends settling down and he is still 'out there'. Thought it was going to be a
typical rock star story, but surprised at how the tale twists and Rick is seen in a different light by the finish. This is a stand alone, but felt the ending, maybe, left open for another book/character. The narrator 'fit' the part well. Be aware this is a MMF story. I was given a code for this review.

I NEED MORE!!!!

This story is AMAZING! I cannot stress enough just how much I loved this book! Exhale and Move On touches on so many different types of relationships and the different dynamics that go with each one. I loved that this was a story about sexual exploration but was not all about sex. It was a story of finding ones self and truest desires and not caring what others think. Dont get me wrong, this book was HOT HOT HOT!!! There were moments that had me fanning myself and others where I was wanting to reach in and give the characters a hug and tell them everything will be okay. When this book ended, I immediately wanted to start it over just to have more time with these characters. I would love to see another book about these characters!!!!

The narration was good. This was the first audio that I have listened to by Bolton Hill and I found his voice to be very mellow and soothing.

BI. NOT. GAY... for heaven’s sake.

Loved this quirky romance. Rick was at a point in his life and career that he really didn’t give a damn what anyone thought. He was bored and lonely and if he loved two people then HE LOVED TWO PEOPLE. There are obvious complications which come from that and the book is so well written that I love all three throughout the entirety. My only real frustration was the lack of clarifying their BI-sexuality whenever they were questioned about being Gay.
Great all around love story. HOT as Hell sex scenes. HEA. Loved all of it!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. My review is HONEST.
👍🏻👍🏻 TWO THUMBS UP!!

Just exhale and move on...

Rick Far is a rock star. He has lived the life most guys would kill for: music, money and lots of women. He has his secret though, and that secret just broke his heart. At first, I didn't feel the chemistry between the MCs but it came around and in spades. Coral was the most skeptic and for a while I didn't think they'd have their hea. Loved the angst. And the narration was good, a deep sexy voice.

Accepting one's self!

I love it when I am introduced to a new author and narrator and I love listening to their work. Rick is a 38 year old rock star that has never settled down. This story explores bad relationships, emotional scars, friendships, giving back to your community, uncertainties in life, changing old ways, and finally accepting your life style so you can move on. It also contains some fiery hot love scenes. The plot flows smoothly and it is easy to follow. The cast contains interesting personalities that work with or cause conflict with each other.

The narrator's voice is deep and smooth to listen to. He portrays both male and female voices.I will enjoy listening to him again.

I volunteered to receive this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this Audible book. Please take note of the story description to make sure you want to read this book.

A different take on love! ❤️🔥

MMF —- This isn’t your everyday romance. This is a hot, menage and I really enjoyed it.
It had a good story along with the hot sex!
I liked seeing how these people explored their feelings and were able to try something out of the ordinary.

The beginning I was a little unsure but chapter 4 is when it really goes full speed ahead and never slows down! It didn’t take long to get there.
The narrator has a nice sexy voice.
I recommend for a hot mmf rockstar listen.

Great listen

I really enjoyed this book. The storyline and characters were great and well developed. I enjoyed going along with Rick as he learns to accept himself as he is. The narrator did a great job bring the story to life.

Rockstar love story

Loved this book. Rick is a wealthy rockstar who has never has a woman steal his heart, but he has stolen plenty. This is a wonderful HEA. I wanted to have more when this story needed.

Good Read

Exhale and Move On was a good read by K.L. Sandwich. Rick is a rock star who has lived up to the reckless rock and roll lifestyle. It seems like Rick has lived the dream as a rockstar but behind closed doors is much different than people believe. This was a good read by K.L. Shandwick.

Erotic Novel

This was my first K.L. Shandwick's book. This is the story of Rick, a Rockstar in his late thirty, in search of happiness. The storyline has multiple sex scenes, intense and explicitly described (MF, MFM, MMF). The story has a HEA. Bolton Hill has a great voice, and the characters were easy to distinguish. He did an amazing job with the narration. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.
