✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Endless by Kaylene Winter

 

Endless
Less Than Zero, Book 1
By: Kaylene Winter
Narrated by: Gregory Salinas & Sophie Daniels

A steamy, coming-of-age, second chance, rock star romance.

“She ripped out my heart and threw it away".

Tyson Rainier had only one way out - leading his band Less than Zero (LTZ) to the top.

Stardom, success, touring the world – all his dreams were about to come true until Zoey Pearson gave him a new dream.

And passion beyond anything he thought possible.

Absolutely nothing could have prepared him for it to end.

Abruptly.

Definitively.

Crushingly.

His songs of heartbreak made LTZ the biggest band in the Universe.

Ty does anything he can to put the life he had with Zoey behind him.

Will Ty forgive Zoey for nearly destroying him?

“I left the only man I’ll ever love".

Beautiful bookworm Zoey Pearson’s love for music led her to Ty.

The gorgeous, sweet rocker was made for her.

When the man Ty trusted most told her to break it off, she does.

Painfully.

Regretfully.

Selflessly.

Now he’s the hottest rock star in the world because of the songs that eviscerated her.

Ty’s fully immersed in a life of excess and debauchery.

Zoey doesn’t even recognize him as the man she loved more than anything in the world.

Will Ty’s past come back to destroy Zoey? When circumstances throw them together eight years after breaking up, the fireworks are explosive, but their hearts are fragile.

Can Ty and Zoey prove that true love is endless?


Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

As a rockstar romance, Endless isn't something I would go looking for. There's nothing wrong with a rocker romance; it just isn't a trope I read much of. That said, it is a second-chance romance, and I'm a sucker for those, and it doesn't hurt that this one has a terrific cover that is nothing short of eye-catching. Anyway, rockstar romances may not be the norm for romance tropes in my go-to list, but I'm pretty varied on genres, so it's not completely out of left field either. The story is emotional, and the angst level is high, so if you're looking for an easy-going read, this is not it. Not by a long shot. Honestly, Zoey drove me a little bit crazy with her back and forth, but given the premise, I could understand where she was coming from. That does eventually get better, and I really liked Ty most of the time. He had his moments of being exactly as I'd expect of a rockstar throwing a fit because he's not getting his way.
The story is well-written, and Kaylene Winter did a solid job with flow and pacing. It has a bit more angst than I care for, some of which is created by insecurities and miscommunication, which is kind of a sore spot for me, but it was still an interesting read, and I did end up rooting for this couple. All in all, this is a good start for a promising series, and I think fans of rocker romances will enjoy Zoey and Ty's second chance.
Gregory Salinas and Sophie Daniels give voice to the characters, and they do it very well. They maybe add in a little too much drama at times, but with the angst level, it makes sense. I would certainly listen to either of these narrators again, as well as reading more by this author.
