Summary

She's innocent, inexperienced, virginal, and completely out of place. Now it's my personal mission to change all of that.

Sure, I'm also on this tour to play drums. A bit of blackmail got me the gig and out from under my parents' control. All I've ever wanted to is to live the rock star life, so I'm willing to do whatever it takes. Doesn't matter who gets hurt, as long as I get mine.

At least that's how it started.

This girl, she's gotten under my skin. Makes me want to be a better man. Has me dreaming of more than a life on the road. For a future of my own, as long as it includes her.

Only, I'm not sure how to make that happen. I can't tell her the truth, not when it won't set us free.

The books in the Off Track Records series are interconnected stand-alone romance novels, and can be listened to in any order.

loved it !

absolutely loved this audiobook, this book follows Opal ,a sassy girl who i feel we can all relate to, she just wants to live her life and have fun doing so and then she meets Leighton new drummer to 3 ugly guys , i loved how their story and feelings progressed despite everything thrown at Leighton to 'hinder' his chances, the narrators were perfect aswell but then you cant go wrong with Jason Clarke and savannah peachwood , they're amazing and really bring the story alive , one of my favourite audiobooks this year

Another beautifully written story!

Another beautifully written story in this fantastic series! Leighton and Opal come from different backgrounds and, despite their age, managed to make their relationship work. This isn't as steamy as the two previous books, but the storyline is so amazing that I don't find it lacking.

We also get to see how the characters in the previous books are doing. I just love seeing the camaraderie between the band members!

Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood were the perfect fit for Leighton and Opal. I recognized the characters based on the voices Jason Clarke gave them in the previous books!

Hinder is a slow burn, contemporary rock star romance written in dual first-person POV and narrated dual- style. It's a standalone that ends with a HEA. No cliffhanger, no cheating.

I actually had to switch off and walk away...

...Sort of like that episode of Friends where Rachel explains to Joey that she puts books in the freezer when they get to a sad part... This was kinda like me, but I was angry! For a book to evoke this sort of reaction shows writing talent!

... I did get straight back to listening after a good coffee and grumble about the goings on in my fictional world!

What a fab third installment to this series. Perfectly created story and characters as always.

Do I even need to say how brilliant the narration was!?

... It was... But I know I didn't need to say that bit!

I love Opal and Leighton's story!

Hinder is Lexi's little sister Opal and 3 Ugly Guys new drummer Leighton's story and what a story it is!
Leighton is a musical prodigy and when he gets the opportunity to play drums for the legendary rock band 3 Ugly Guys, he will do whatever it takes to become a part of the band and to be a permanent member, but what Leighton doesn't take into consideration is Lexi's sweet, innocent, extremely beautiful little sister.
Opal has lived a very sheltered life up until now! When Opal has nowhere to go, she calls her long lost sister Lexi. But Lexi is on tour so she leaves Opal in boyfriend Tent and the guys capable hands!
Can this sweet, innocent, sheltered girl survive on tour with hot rock stars and being completely out of her element? And what will happen when secrets come out?
I loved Hinder I couldn't stop until I listened to it all!
I received an Arc of Hinder and I voluntarily leaving my review.

Love this series!

Kacey Shea has books so far in the Off Track Records series, and I am loving the community it has built! I feel like I am part of the band and get to enjoy all the ups and downs of their building success. This story lets us get to know Opal Evans, Lexi's sister. She was introduced to us when their father died, and now she gets a chance to know the band and her sister better. The band is still reeling from the death of their drummer and in need of replacing him. Their manager, Bedo, finds a talented young musician, Leighton, and his attraction to Opal is palpable. But conditions of his hiring keep him from her. Or will they? When Opal and the band find out Leighton's secret, heads will roll. But will it be the end for this couple? I LOVE Opal and Leighton. I fell for Opal, Her innocence, her need for acceptance, her huge capacity to love had me rooting for her happiness. Leighton is quite the guy. A little arrogant at first, his attitude and need to be in the band all become clear. He is warm and affectionate and I love his inner war when he is figuring out his life. It makes him believable. And just having all the band there, Austin, Shaun, Trent and Lexi make it feel like coming home. Keep them coming! I am look forward to our next visit!

Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood are incredible with the narration. Story telling at it's best, these two can go from young adult to middle age with such ease. Peachwood is perfect as Opal. She falls into her character, making each facet of her personality so true to life. Clarke is fantastic, keeping the voice of each character from book to book so it's easy to know who is speaking, and keeping all their dispositions in tact. Love these two together and really enjoyed their performance.

Great next book in this rockstar series!

I love reading books in series order because it's wonderful revisiting the characters we've met before. That is part of the wonder of this series- you get to fall in love with the band over the course of the series and continue to see them as they live their dreams. In this book, we're introduced to Leighton, a musical prodigy. He blackmails his uncle, Vito, the band's manager, to let him be the drummer. He fits in perfectly with the boys but even more so, he falls head over heels for Opal, Lexi's sister, who is with the band because she was having issues with at home. Opal is such a great character- innocent but fun. Leighton is confident but young and brash and therefore, he and she do face some minor angst as secrets come out but this story was overall fun, steamy and sweet. As these characters are pretty young, this is a coming of age rockstar romance.

I bought the ebook but also was given an opportunity to listen to the audiobook upon request. Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood narrate and they were perfect. I love Jason Clarke's raspy voice (my one complaint is that we didn't hear him sing- he has done this before in a prior book and he is amazing). Savannah and he do a great job playing multiple characters and I was never confused about who was being represented. The 10+ hours of the audiobook passed in a flash as I got further immersed in the story because of the narration.

Another Smash Hit! Easily with the credit!

Another smash hit for this series! This one incorporates some characters we have met in the past and given them a front standing role. While I am not a huge fan of virgin stories the author does a good job portraying her as such. The girl is a wonderful add to the story. I was hesitant because she didn’t seem to be a girl that could handle the rockstar life upon our first meeting. But she shined. I really loved the male lead. His life is golden except he doesn’t think of it that way. He has emotional family issues. He is so talented that I can’t even imagine having all that ability! Watching him fit in and try to be the good guy was interesting.

Of course we get to hand out with the 3UG guys! More concerts and all the stress that goes along with it. I just can’t get over the whole eating contest just to get the room on the bus. Makes me laugh every time it comes up.

I did listen to this on audio. Savannah Peachwood and Jason Clarke. Savannah does a wonderful job and she is a joy to listen to. Jason really just blows this out of the water. He has been the male characters from the beginning. He has a different voice for each male character and he nails it from book to book. Amazing! Worth a listen!

More than 5 Stars!

Another fantastic book in the Off Track Records Series! Opal and Leighton are strong characters from two different backgrounds and their story couldn’t be sweeter! I enjoyed them both so much! I didn’t want this book to end! Just like the first two in this series (Detour and Derail) I always just want to stay in the 3UG world for as long as possible. I was on the edge waiting to see how everything played out and I was not disappointed! Kacey Shea, thank you for another beautiful story! I’m excited to see what’s next!

I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood. Both are a perfect fit these two characters and really captured Opal and Leighton’s personalities beautifully.

The Good Drummer Boy

Opal is the sweet innocent country girl. When she comes to live with Lexi and band she has to learn quick how living on the road can be. Meet the new drummer Leighton he is young and got the good boy look. But a bad boy he can be. Secrets and lies is never a good way to start a relationship.
I loved the friends to lovers plot to this book with plenty of laughter, secrets and family love to keep you wanting to know more. I love all the characters and they make this series awesome. Can’t wait for Austin’s book.
Savannah Peachwood and Jason Clarke do a wonderful job bringing this story to life. They really brought this book to life. A must read Series.

Third times definitely a charm!

Book Three in the Off Track Records series definitely continues the streak of awesome stories with these characters. This one kept me more on the edge just dying to know what would happen next!

Unexpected surprise!

I have to admit I wasn’t sure I’d love this book as much as the others since it wasn’t Austin’s story. Boy was I wrong! I absolutely fell in love with Opal and Leighton. Opal is such a great heroine. She may be young but I loved how loyal and caring she was. As for Leighton well... you’ll love him and you’ll hate him. A few times I wanted to smack him and tell him to step up to Vito. There’s a perfect blend of steam and sweetness throughout. The great relationship between 3UG continues to shine in this book. I can’t wait to listen to Austin’s story. If you like rockstar romances you’ll enjoy this series. Even though all books are about different couples I’d recommend starting at the beginning!

Overall this was a 4.75 star listen. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Narration was amazing! 5 ++++ STARS
The flow was great and each character had their own unique voice.

Hinder

I loved Opal and Leightons’s story, my favorite Off Track Records book so far. Can easily be read/listened to as a stand-alone, but it will leave you wanting to read/listen to Detour and Derail if you haven’t already! Three Ugly Guys aren’t your typical rock band - these guys have heart! Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood are terrific. Both narrators had distinct voices for their characters and easily and seamlessly switched when giving voice to other characters in the story. They are two of my favorite narrators and it was fun to have them paired as Opal and Leighton.

LOVE

I can't get enough of these rockstars and the phenomenal narrators bringing them to life. Once again Jason Clarke knocks it out of the park with these male protagonists. Kacey Shea has got a great group of characters in this series and every time the next book comes out it feels like the first time I am getting to read them again. I love the Opal and Leighton addition to the series. Opal intrigued me from her very first mention in Detour and I was hoping she was get her own book and more than happy to have a hero like Leighton join Three Ugly Guys to round out the band. This series is addicting and I can hardly wait for the next installment. Austin has always been a favorite of mine!

A Beautiful Romance!

This book hits you with an potent emotional cocktail that will have your head spinning and have your heart melting. A beautiful romance about two very different people, their unexpected attraction and feelings for each other. There is drama, angst, pain, secrets, heartache, lust, passion and love. Opal and Leighton's story will touch your heart and linger in your mind and for me that is what the very best books do. A truly amazing read! Dual narration on this book is basically the icing on the cake! The narrator's give an impeccable performance that I felt perfectly matched the characters and the story being told. Simply excellent!!
