Summary

The heart always knows.

Lando: 

My muse is gone, and I haven’t written a word of music in more than a year. Every time I close my eyes, all I can see is Dawson. Nine years ago, just before Downward Spiral’s first major tour, I met my soul mate, and then I walked away. Now that I’ve finally tracked him down again, things have changed. I’ll have to make him fall for me all over again. But is it possible I put our single weekend together on a pedestal, or could Dawson really be the one? 

Dawson:

A traumatic brain injury nine years ago left me deaf and with spotty memory of the first 20 years of my life. When one of the biggest rock stars in the world shows up and seems to know me, I’m not sure what to believe. Is it possible he’s telling the truth when he says he’s been in love with me for nine years, even if I can’t remember ever meeting him?

Play It by Ear is the second audiobook in the Replay series. Each audiobook in the series will focus on a different band member getting a second chance at love. Each audiobook can be listened to as a stand-alone.

Long lost love

Can you fall in and stay in love for almost 10 years or is that pathetic that you just can’t stop dreaming about a person you spent one weekend with?

A sweet, beautiful story about long lost and found love.

Kenneth narrating this beautifully!

Enjoyed but didn't connect

Overall I enjoyed this book however I had a difficult time finding the connection from the past for these second chance lovers. In the presence it was there and I loved seeing them come together but I didn't feel what made them fall fast and hard the first time about with kind of dulled the story a little for me. I still enjoyed listening but it did fall a little short for me

Great book

I loved it. Kenneth Obi brought the story to life perfectly. Lando finds the perfect man he spent an unforgettable weekend with...only Dawson did. Dawson not only lost parts of his memory, including the last year of his life but his hearing. Will they be able to overcome the obstacles?

Loved It!

This was a great continuation of the guys from Downward Spiral. Lando and Dawson are a fun twist on a second chance romance. The narration by Kenneth Obi is fantastic, capturing the guys perfectly. I really appreciated that he accounted for Dawson's hearing loss and rarely used voice.

Finding your true love

This is a beautifully written story about never giving up on finding your perfect person. After Lando spent a few days with Dawson, a man he met on a plane, tragedy struck. Dawson was in an accident that left him deaf and Lando had no idea until their paths crossed again. Dawson didn't remember his time with Lando but they got to know each other again and fell in love.
Narrator Kenneth Obi does a fabulous job.

The Path To True Love.....

In this book we meet Lando a bassist for a popular rock band. He isn't sure if the band he is in will have a future as all the members, himself included are having issues and being in the limelight has lost its shine. On a break from the band Lando decides to go back to Florida where he once met a man years ago that he hasn't been able to forget. He will either find this man (hopefully) or find closure and finally move on.
Dawson is the man Lando met all those years ago but the problem is he doesn't remember Lando. He was in a accident after their time together and he lost his hearing and some of his memories. Can these two men find not only their way back to each other but also their way back to to who they are as individuals.
I really loved Lando and Dawson and I'm so glad I had a chance to hear their wonderful story. I also saw that this is a series featuring all the members of the band and I plan to check those stories out too because this book was that good.
Kenneth Obi was the narrator for this audiobook and he did a phenomenal job. I really enjoyed hearing him read this book and his version of these beautiful people.

I won a copy of this audiobook but this is my honest review.

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the 2 narrators (so far), I can listen without break and have no problems to follow.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:


5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening, but not more then twice a year.
it's like a B

love it!

Lando is a Rockstar but his band is in trouble. The members are falling due to their own demons, the tension is too thick, and there are no words coming, no new songs being written. His muse is missing. Most of his songs are about a man he shared a weekend with once, the man he still craves. When the band takes a break, Lando goes to Florida hoping to find his muse again.
Dawson can not remember Lando when they meet again. The day they parted a decade ago, he was is a major accident that stole not only his hearing but some of his memories... Including the weekend he had with Lando. But now they have another chance to see if they can work... If the muse is back.

Lando and Dawson are sexy, sweet, fun and perfect! Definitely recommend.

Kenneth Obi does an amazing job bring the story to the audiobook audience. the characters and story come to life and really grab you. great job!
