Would you try another book from Kristen Proby and/or Sebastian York and Arielle DeLisle ?
I've very much enjoyed many books narrated by S. York .. he didn't sound like he was enjoying the story either. Arielle is a good narrator, just a stupid story, probably my last K. Proby book.
What was most disappointing about Kristen Proby’s story?
same tired old story .. one big cliche.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
the performances were ok, the content was boring boring boring.
What character would you cut from Listen to Me?
difficult question ..
Any additional comments?
this sounded like a good book and it wasn't .. very disappointed.

Addie is co-owner of the successful Seduction Restaurant which she runs with her BFFs - she manages the 'dining' side of the business and she's looking for a Singer to bring in more business and a handsome tattooed Rock Legend has just applied for the job. The famous (and once infamous) Jake Keller broke his Band up 5 years ago to become a successful 'behind the scenes' Writer/Producer but he has come out of seclusion needing to perform, interact and sing again.... and, as soon as these two meet, sparks fly. There's witty banter, not only between Addie and Jake, but also between all the best friends too which was very entertaining, smooth and funny and they play good secondary characters. It's also got a sweet romance between the now reformed bad boy Jake, who's got a twisted guilty memory that still haunts him, and efficient businesswoman Addie who seems to be drawn to bad boy Rockers who always end up disappointing and leaving her. But together Jake and Addie's relationship flourishes and grows deeper until Jake's guilt ridden conscience implodes and they hit a major bump in the road which totally derails their journey to the HEA. And it's up to Jake to make things right..... which he does in the most tender, touching, sweet and romantic ways ever.
There's one thing about Kristen Proby's books that thankfully never differs.... it's her ability to write about loveable and well developed characters whose love stories easily draws you in. You witness and feel the initial attraction, the sizzling chemistry, the steamy encounters and the sweet romance between the Hero and Heroine.... but then you dread, and helplessly watch, as one of them inevitably cocks things up.... and this time it was Jake's misplaced guilt. Told from alternate POV's and the narrators did a great job at making the story, and it's characters, come alive.
Worth a credit? YES - KP's books are always an auto download for me because I know the listen is going to be an enjoyable, entertaining and well written Contemporary romance with a great story, sex, loveable characters, humor and a bit of angst. And this listen didn't disappoint, in fact it surpassed my expectations because of all the wonderful characters it contained and I can't wait for the next book in this new Fusion series because KP has already introduced the characters, their connection and the dilemma that's keeping them apart.

I have several of Kristen Proby's books and I usually really enjoy her work.
This book started off as fairly predictable but okay.
I kept coming across dialogue so similar to her other work that I became bored.
Finally, there was passion and sex a plenty but towards the end there was more dominant and submissive sex play which I felt was ruined the book for me!

This captured me from the start, a lovely story I hope there's more and it is a collection! I couldn't put it down.
The story was good and Sebastian York voice is my all time favourite for any books, if it wasn't for his voice I don't think I would have listened to the whole thing, the female narrator voice just seem to sound very very young and when they get into the heated stuff it sounded very wrong, I would never listen to this book again which is a same as the story is pretty good
Where does Listen to Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
this would have to be one of my favourites...
What was one of the most memorable moments of Listen to Me?
the song he wrote for Addie and the scene out side her door that happened after he played the song I wanted to drop a tear (nearly)
What does Sebastian York and Arielle DeLisle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
wow every time I listen to Sebastian I want to hear more and will always pick the audio over the printed version. Both narrators are amazing and having the story told by both people really brings the story home for me. "loved you guys"
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
there was a few times I felt emotional reactions to this story I wont say much as I don't want to give away the story,
Any additional comments?
Kristen Proby- thank you for creating an amazing and captivating story, I love a good feel romance and having josh and Addie finding each other early in the story made it all the more enjoyable.. I have already downloaded book 2 cant wait for the rest...
