Summary

Music is my life. It’s kept me breathing. Even when I couldn’t eat, sleep, or sing, I could still write songs. It’s the only thing that has saved me from going crazy.

Until the day Reckless Alibi decides to hire a girl. Suddenly, everything from my past comes rushing back to me. And now she’s there. For every rehearsal. Every show. Every moment. Every song.

We were supposed to be a boy band. Now everything has changed. I’m still breathing...but I’m sure as hell no longer sane.

Emotional

This book is written so very well. The emotion is brilliant, I cried quite a bit throughout this book. It’s a beautiful story of healing. I now have a favourite narration duo! Erin and Jason are perfect together, and the singing! It’s fantastic. Well done guys, you totally rocked it.

Rockstar Romance

Reckless Obsession by Samantha Christy is a Rockstar romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon.

This is the first book of Samantha’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. I absolutely loved Crew and Bria’s love story. They took you on an emotional roller coaster but you couldn’t help but root for them. I cannot wait for the next book in the series Reckless Invitation to be released on August 27, 2020.

Jason and Erin did an amazing job on the narration. They both know how to bring a story to life.

I would highly recommend this book if you love Rockstar Romances.

ANGSTY.. BEAUTIFUL & FULL OF EMOTIONAL LANDMINES

This was my guilty obsession.. and there wasn’t anything reckless about it - because every single well-written feel hit just right.. every single addictive word sang to my soul.. and every single chapter held emotional mayhem, music and magic. And the bags under my eyes this morning are so worth the mental fight in the night between the clock’s hands pointing to late late late and me lying to myself with broken promises of “just one more chapter”. Because Ms Christy has written a very addictive and compelling story here.. but the jackpot win is the awesome dual POV narration by Erin and Jason who really delivered outstanding five star performances which brought the many characters and feels-filled storyline to life.. and it also includes.. sigh and wipe my drool.. Jason singing.. well color me there.

Crew and Brianna (Bria) were destined to make beautiful music together both professionally and personally.. but their tension-filled push n pull heartbreaking heartwarming journey was a long, layered and complicated one because Crew was still emotionally damaged by events seven years in the past. And, even though the instant chemistry between himself and Bria is intense and palpable, Crew wrestles and wriggles with his guilt over his growing feelings for Bria.. but to have a future with her, he will have to say a heartbreaking goodbye to the past. Bria realized there were secrets and along their journey she learns every single heartbreaking one, but along the way she also falls hard for the damaged singer/songwriter with his over-protective disruptive need to keep her safe. But, as she fights with and then fights for her hot n cold lover, Bria also fights the crippling knowledge that there may never be room in his heart for her too?

Wow what a spectacular story of love, grief and Crew’s emotional struggles at letting go of the destructive ties that bind him to his doomed first love.. to finally embrace a future with his forever love. Because it’s the sizzling symbiotic close singer/songwriting relationship between himself and Bria that clicks and ignites the flames that will eventually burn through those heartbreaking ties and gave Crew the motivation to say goodbye to the past and claw his way to a future with Bria. And that takes some impressive character growth. And it’s also a heartwarming and fun introduction to the close group of friends who make up Reckless Alibi.. and the manipulative villains behind the scenes cloaked in Record Label suits and skirts.

Worth a credit? Well now hummm let me think?... DUH, NO OF COURSE I DON’T NEED TO THINK it’s a YES absolutely. This ticked every - single - box.. and then created more with the heated angst, weighty dialogue, range of feels, sexy scenes, cast of colorful characters, climactic anticipation, passion-fuelled romance and delicious narration.. love you Erin - but LOVE you Jason ;). And now I can’t wait to hear more from these Reckless Rockstars as they hit it big.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m not really a rock chick, for me music died when Bananarama broke up 🤪🍌🍌🍌 but I did love this story and the songs within it are amazballs. You will not regret using a credit on this book.📚 Samantha Christy knows how to write an angst ridden love story this one is no exception.

Not quite a tearjerker but close.

If you have read Samantha Christy before then you know that her heroes/heroines have tragic and traumatic pasts and this one is no exception. Crew is simply going through the motions until he meets Bria and everything changes. They are now co-lead singers in a band and falling hard and fast for each other. As is typical for Christy’s novels there is still so much healing, acceptance, forgiveness and general growth that must happen before they can find their HEA, but rest assured they do find it. Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon are absolutely brilliant bringing all the hurt, emotion, sexiness and even SINGING to make this a five-star listen. It can be emotionally tough to listen to some parts but totally worth it in the end.

Could’ve been....

3 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️
This was my first book by this Author. Reckless Obsession wasn’t a complete bust, but could’ve easily been a 4 star because it had so much potential, but unfortunately it fell flat for me.

<img src=https://i.postimg.cc/W32dy8Rj/E1-EC29-FD-AEFA-4-E2-D-9-CE5-3-D90-CE472-CE9.gif>

One being I never connected with either MC‘s because there relationship was Non-existing. There was no chemistry or relationship buildup between them. The reason I think that was, is because the book focused more on Abby and Crew’s relationship rather then Crew and Bria relationship. Then there was the sex scenes which were nothing to rave about. I was at least hoping those would be hot and I could connect with them in that way, but that didn’t happen either...It went from Crew seeing Bria when opening up for another band to boom “ we’re now in a relationship”. No flirting, no comments on how Bria makes Crew feel. Just a whole lot of nada!

On a positive note...the story did keep me turning the pages wanting to know more. Not sure if I’ll continue to the next book. It’s something I will have to think about.

Audiobook review: 5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke always do a great job bringing the characters to life!

Awesome!

Love this story so much. The unrolling of the backstory keeps you *there* all the way through. The hard parts hurt and great parts soar. Love how the story builds fully dimensioned characters that you want to find their way together. Thought the cameos from last series were well dropped, a fun bonus for readers Ms. Christy’s prior series but not a detractor from this being a first choice. Just love it!

Narrators were great. Fit the story well!

Great book !

Love how the author always refers to characters from not her series she's written. Makes you feel like each character means something to her and its fun to catch up with a past friend.

Incredible narration

I did not love the story, but I was blown away by the narration! Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon made this book. If you love a lot of angst and secrets this is the book for you. I personally am not a fan of too much angst. The song writing in this was also amazing!
