Mariana Zapata is an author I admire. I believe Kulti was one of the best books written in 2015. This story is not one that you have the urge to continue into the wee hours listening to. You can walk away and pick it up later.
Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin is witty and humorous as is MZ's style. The developing relationship between Sasha and Gabby evolved slowly and lends itself more to a real life romance rather than a fictional character romance.
The back drop of touring with her brother's band as Gabby tries to put her life together is light hearted and funny. Despite the talent of this author I found that I thought the story lagged. I think perhaps this particular story would have been better for me if I had read it rather than listened. I did not care for Ms. Robbins performance of male voices .... and I found her voice was grating at times.
While I am not overwhelmed with this story as I have been with some of her other works, I do believe this book to be credit and/or sale worthy.

The characters are underdeveloped and the storyline is flat. Building a character is one of Zapata's strengths but she missed this time. The performance din't help. Sticking with Callie Dalton to do the performance instead MAY have helped it some. Disappointing.

This was an okay read but it takes a lot for me to like a rocker/musician book. I didn't connect with Sasha in particular, Gabby was okay. The writing seemed a bit overly descriptive even though I'm a fan of MZ. I enjoyed it most from 60%. Good, solid narration.
Sometimes loud, too loud for my taste - a bit like New York streets. But enjoyable for all that.
I just love the way this author develops her characters. This is a great book that kept me giggling out loud the whole way through.
I have listen to couple of Mariana book's Under Locke & Kulti, they were brilliant in there own way, this one not so much. I don't really think adults talk the way they are written in this story. In there teens yes, not so much once you get to twenty-six. I'm sorry to say I was disappointed, I like to feel like I'am on a ride when I listen to a book, a ride of emotions wither it is funny, loving, hatful, sexy, mind blowing, dangerous or bizarre. There was no ride, I felt like I was sitting on the kiddee merry go round. Narrator sounded like she was talking though her nose, abit off putting.
