Summary

Skye Summers beat the odds. Professionally her life's a success - every day, she cures the sick and heals the wounded. Personally? Her life couldn't be more of a mess. She's tired of putting up with arrogant men who think nothing of ripping out her heart. She's taking a break. No more dating. No more relationships. No more men. 

Ash Dean has it all: fame, fortune, and the adoration of screaming fans. But the constant parties and an endless string of one-night stands are taking their toll. He's tired of superficial women who care only about sleeping with a rock star. He's taking a break. No more flings. No more empty hook ups. He's looking for something real. 

When sparks ignite between him and a sassy doctor during a chance encounter, he's intrigued. When she has no idea who he is, he's fascinated. When she runs after a little innocent flirting, he's determined to pursue. He's arrogant enough to go after what he wants, and something tells him she might be worth the chase.

Could have been better on both accounts

This book could have been a lot better. Given the heavy topics it deals with I would have liked a bit more depth in certain points in the story. Quite a few things seemed a bit too generously glossed over. Nor the story nor the writing was bad, it just never reached its potential so it made me feel a bit robbed of the experience.

The narration itself was allright but the quality of the recording was disturbingly uneven. From one chapter to another there were significant differences in sound quality peppered with weird echoes here and there. There were a few glitches too where some words, or even sentences perhaps, were noticeably missing.

Sensational !

Ellie Masters and Amanda stribling were both unknown to me before this Audiobook but are both now on my list of favourites.
I seriously loved everything about this amazing book, it is so well written and with such a strong storyline and characters.
Such a powerful subject evoking powerful emotions! Between the Author and narrator their characterisation is so strong you live it right along with them.
An easy recommendation and definitely a series I shall be adding to.

Not Your Typical Rockstar Romance

There are quite a few elements to this rockstar romance that I haven't ever seem in other rockstar romances. This was relatively unique and I loved the author's spin on this trope. I loved the characters and how the grew together. The darker elements of Skye's past could be hard for those who have triggers for abuse. I was pleased with the outcome and am glad that that author writes in a way for Skye to overcome her past with Ash's help. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, the characters, the challenges they face and their backgrounds. A very well written rockstar romance.

Excellent performance from the narrator. I've heard other performances by this narrstor so I know this isn't her best work, but I'm still very pleased with the performance and am impressed with her progression as a narrator.

Let this audio grab your heart

This is my first Ellie Masters listen. What got me hooked is it’s a Rock love story . The story will have you hooked to your ear buds right till the end. Lots of layers.

Heroine is Skye Summers. Hero is Ash Dean.

Skye is a doctor in the ER . Not only is her work stressful, but her life is also . She had a tough upbringing with no breaks . On the day she meets Ash she had enough and she reached her boiling point.
Ash is the lead singer of a rock band . He’s use to women giving him anything he wants , bending backwards for him .
That day Skye just rips into him . She saw Ash and his buddies disrespecting a lady , so Skye thought to set them straight. That tongue lashing caught Ash attention, since Skye is not like any other women he knows .
Grab it and see if he makes amends and wins Skye over .

Amanda performance was good . Her voice is smooth, clear and joyful.

Heart's Insanity

Ellie Masters is a new to me author, and normally I don't get into band/rockstar reads but I did enjoy this one. The writing was well done, and the story grabbed my attention from the very beginning and didn't disappoint.

I enjoyed the narration by Amanda Stribling, her performances are always well done and easy to listen to. I felt that this particular book would have been better with a second narrator to do the male POV.

A rock star and the doctor 😍

This isn’t your typical girl meets rockstar. A smart doctor meets rockstar and doesn’t even know it. She is sassy and as you listen to the story, her life hasn’t being all roses. In fact, she has an awful fiancé and her childhood was rough. Ash is the ultimate manwhore but a guy can change his ways, for the right girl. I loved her best friend and “brother”. I hope he gets his book. Loved the book!

Not Light and Fluffy

Ellie Masters is an author who is new to me and I truly enjoyed this story. This story could have been dark and depressing, but it wasn't. The writing was great and the story was heart-wrenching. The story deals with some trauma in Skye's past and it was handled very well. The ending felt a bit rushed to me, but I was so happy for the HEA, I was able to get past that... (it did take a star off though). The narrator has a very sweet and pleasing voice, but I thought she sounded a little young for the character. I also think a male narrator in addition to Amanda would have added a boost to this story. The story was nicely paced with a nice flow. I'm interested to read the next book in the series.

WOW!!

i have to say I really enjoy reading rock star romances... and this Heart's Insanity did not disappoint. Skye Summers may just be one of my favorite narrators. Ash Dean is just wow. This book just grabbed my attention and just did not let it go. I was rooting for Skye and Ash and I just became so invested in their relationship... I spoke about them like they were real people. The narration by Amanda Stribling was so authentic and just made this listen so great.

Fame and Fortune

Amanda Stribling narrates this story with ease, modulating her voice for each individual character. Amanda provides strength and courage to a woman traumatized by her past while rediscovering herself.

Forest and Skye Summers were foster siblings that beat the odds as kids. Now a successful Dr Skye has put all her energy and emotional baggage into being the best ER Dr she can be. In her personal life, her love life stinks due to the horror she suffered as a kid not to mention the idiot and bully she's supposed to marry.

Ash Dean is the lead front man for the rock band Angel Fire. He's tired of being a money tree for those only wanting to take from him. He meets Skye when she gives him and his band mates a piece of her mind for not having manners and being raised by wolves. No one dared to speak to the guys this way. Who did she think she was...better yet...Ash wants to know who she is.... Skye has no idea who Ash really is and is taken by her refreshing honesty and demands to pay her own way. As the two embark on an unusual courtship, they learn a lot about each other's pasts, and what they both want for the future but are terrified.

As the two of them get to know each other and the fame and fortune that surrounds them, jealousy and outside influences attempt to destroy anything they've barely built together. Both need to learn how to trust, but Skye needs to leave her past behind and love like insanity.

prepare to be shredded and put back together

Ellie Masters delivers a story that had me running the gamut of emotions. I laughed, was brought to tears, and had to control a near overwhelming rage and the need to cause severe bodily injury. Skye's traumatic childhood and resulting issues as an adult are not easy to endure and if you are expecting a fluffy romance I give fair warning this isn't it. However, the dedication of Ash stole my heart and had me painting him on a white horse with a hot as hell rocker attitude. This is a must for a personal library. Amanda Stribling was spectacular!

Heart’s Insanity

I just not imagine the strength it would take to move forward after being abused so badly. Skye and Ash have instant chemistry after a chance meeting where she has no ideal who he is. Her flashbacks might cause some triggers. Loved how the book ended.

I think I found a new epic BBF

Skye has truly been through hell. There is so much to her story and I really wish we could dive even further into it. She has taken some of the worst situations and become such an incredible human deserving of so much and expecting so little.

Ash is a hot as sin rocker who will steal your heart and all your naughty thoughts. He sees all the Skye is and fights so hard to show her love. He has potential to be one of the all time great book beaus. I would a million percent read more about this couple and more in this series.

The narrator is great but there were moments were is sounded a bit like she was in a tunnel. Other than that super enjoyable.

Diggin' the rockin' romance!

So I was a bit skeptical going into this audiobook. I had listened to Amanda Stribling on another book and, well… it wasn’t good. I didn’t even review the book. However, I was pleasantly surprised with Heart’s Insanity. The narration was strong and I did not have the same problems as the other book. There were mechanical issues and tones that jumped from low to high in the previous book (not the same author but I don’t want to bring up what book this is). It was not pleasing to the ear. Anyway, this is supposed to be about this book so I’ll get on with it!

I do enjoy a good rocker romance and Ellie Masters seems to really excel at giving us a rocker with heart and soul. I swooned and fell hard for Ash. It isn’t often we get a believable, NICE guy rocker romance. Skye deserves to have it all… sky’s the limit! They both are a tad broken and have had a hard life.

Now, Amanda Stribling was pleasing to listen to. Her voice is sweet and soft. I loved her as Skye. I do wish we had a male narrator but I’m always pulling for dual/duet narration in a book that has both POVs. I really was swept up into Stribling's easy pacing and flow. I felt she did very well with this narration.

Great storyline!

This book had a truly great story. The character development and plot twists were truly amazing! So many things that happened in this book hit me by complete surprise and made me love the story even more! I definitely need more of this series in audio asap!!!

The narration definitely needs some work. I enjoyed Amanda's voices in the book but felt that background noises I heard took too much away from her work. I think this book could definitely benefit from another editing pass to take out some of the breathy sounds and background noises.

Edgy

This book is very edgy and revolves around very sensitive issues. Well done Ellie, not only is this book enjoyable but it has a lot of educational value to it as well. Amanda brings not only the issues to life but the characters who deal with them.

Touching

This was a complex story with many layers to the characters. I like how the author handled their personal issues and the level of strain it put on their unusual situation. This was s sweet read with a lot of emotion that I'd recommend.

Couldnt get past the bad..

The reviews for this book were so good but I couldn't
get past the first few chapters. Maybe if I had more patience but I listen to books to escape the craziness. why would a girl go back home with a fiance that she just caught screwing another girl. That just ended it for me! I didnt like the narration either so this was just a no go for me!
