Summary

I play guitar.
I create music.
It’s all I ever wanted to do.

But I’m in a rut.
I’ve lived under the shadow of my past for so long I can’t see a future.

Then she falls into my life.
And suddenly, all I can hear are riffs, melodies, and beats.

She’s my muse - my inspiration.
She’s exactly what I need to get me back into the groove.

But will she accept my invitation?

A fantastic book and outstanding performance by Jason and Erin.

Another outstanding performance by Jason and Erin. Second book in the series and it’s just gets better the audio certainly did it justice. What a read this was. Samantha sure did good with this one. This has such a hard hitting subject to overcome, any kind of abuse is hard to read, but this was truly the kind of nightmares. I felt Liam’s pain throughout. This one hits deep, certainly takes us on an emotional rollercoaster, ensuring we get all the feels. Ella is a fantastic, she has so much patience and understanding. Another strong female character. Great to catch up with Bria and Crew and seeing where they are heading. As always, good to catch up with old faces, getting not one, but two, of our Stone Brothers, what more could we want. Can’t wait for Garrets book now, Samantha left us plenty crumbs in this one to intrigue us. ❤️

An audiobook you don’t want to miss

Wow. Just wow. This book was emotionally intense, and beautiful at the same time. It’s really the story of how Ella’s love heals Liam’s broken mind and soul. And how Ella’s life changes after she meets Liam, when she becomes the muse of a musician on his path to stardom. Several chapters were difficult to read, because they were touching upon a tough subject and weren’t exactly explicit but still quite detailed. They were heartbreaking and helped building Liam’s character and identifying his trauma and boundaries. Of course, with such a background, the book is a slow burn. That also means that, once they take the plunge, it’s scorching hot–but also very emotional. The villains–yes, there are several–are quite villainy. All the band’s members as well as Ella will suffer because of them, one way or another. There’s not a dull moment in the book. Every time you think everything is sorted out, a new problem arise, making the characters–and their relationship–stronger. I can’t say enough how the narration is perfect. Jason Clarke delivers another outstanding performance, and Erin Mallon is her usual amazing self. An audiobook you don’t want to miss. Box of tissues not included.

THIS story shocked me!

OMGosh! This story! These characters! I loved it all! This is so much more then another “rock n roll” band story. Each of these band mates have quite the wonderful or tragic story. I love the lighter moments like when he calls her “Mrs Campbell”. Or any time the band is together. The two main characters in here are outstanding. She unknowingly becomes his muse and that changes her life. He has a tragic past who feels she can only be his friend and muse. At time he makes me want to cry for him. He has done amazing things. I am in awe of people who can put chords and/or words down. They have some talent. I can’t wait to dig deeper into these guys. After that ending?! I want more now! I did listen to this dream on audio. Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon are the narrators. They do a wonderful job portraying these characters.

FULL O’ FEELS.. bleeding, bold & beautiful ones

Oh Samantha you got me good with this one. So so many feels.. both good and bad as a Rockstar on the rise reveals his boyhood truths and tragedies and finally finds someone to trust, let in and lights the way to forgiveness and love. Liam is a Melody Writer and Guitarist in Reckless Alibi and they’re on the threshold of making it big. However, Liam’s life is imploding with grief, guilt and disgust in himself over dark childhood memories which haunt him and stops him from having relationships because he doesn’t like to be touched. And now the melodies are gone too. His walls are high, his expectations low and he drowns his emotions in drink and dirty hookups.. until the stunning Ella catches his eye then literally falls in his path.. and suddenly the 🎵🎶notes flow. Ella is a successful children’s book Illustrator, she’s just come out of a relationship where her ex cheated on her so she definitely isn’t interested in starting anything with anybody.. but Liam makes her a very tempting, and timely, offer she can’t refuse. And on a whirlwind Tour Bus trip a slow-building friends-to-lovers relationship blossoms where Ella’s patience, understanding and empathetic nature will slowly change Liam’s world.. and her soft loving touch will heal his heart and free his soul. This was a delicious slow-burn because the build to their relationship was perfectly paced and not at all insta. But spoiler alert, as Liam slowly revealed his truths, it was devastating and heartbreaking to hear about his boyhood broken trust, his child abuse and loss of innocence and the heartbreaking loss of his family. However, his inner strength, character growth and Ella’s unwaivering love forge a bright future and a HEA for him. Angst and drama from other sources fuel friction and give this story an added layer of suspense to go with the emotional unpacking. Alongside the traumatic tentative touches.. the hurdles and stepping stones to get to the beauty of imposed boundaries being broken.. and sensual, soulful love. Erin and Jason (sigh.. love you Jason) both did an awesome job bringing the characters, their back stories, their present and past emotional difficulties and dilemmas and their character groans and growths to life.. as well as the cast of secondary characters too. WORTH A CREDIT? yes.. an enjoyable and emotional rollercoaster as a hunger for a connection leads to a Muse.. Magic.. and love.
