Love this series

How can you go wrong with Rock Stars, Surf and Second Chances? All three of these subjects are perfect for a romance. This particular story is one of heartache and love and truly finding that second chance. Ramon and Dominic are both in love with Karen. When Karen marries Dominic, Ramon follows the rock star life. Life changes once Dominic joins the military and as life enters it's new phase, so do Ramon and Karen. The push-pull between these two, the chemistry and the ups and downs these two went through are so easy to relate to, it's easy to get wrapped up in their pain and their love. It is a slow burn until these two finally get their second chance at finding happiness, with a lifetime of feelings and misunderstandings. Mankin will steal your heart with Ramon and Karen and have your heart surfing til the end.

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross are the voices of this series, and never do they cease to amaze me with their performances. The inflection of love and pain is truly felt with each character they portray allowing the listener to experience it all.

Very enjoyable read!

This is the second book in the Rock Stars, Surf and Second Chances Series. Now we get Ramos and Karen’s story and it can be read as a standalone but I prefer to read them in order.
This book takes place over a span of 15 years and it goes back on for from present to the past. I enjoyed getting their backstory. Ramon started out as being a total jerk toward Karen and not able to show his true feelings towards her so she settles for marrying his best friend and fellow bandmate, Dominic. Then fast forward a few years and we get to see the complex friendship and attraction that forms between the two when Dominic’s away in the military. Then we enter the present and Karen’s back in Ocean Beach and dealing with what’s left of her life after the death of her husband. And Ramon is back too after the end of his band’s final tour. Their attraction for each other is very much still there too! Can Ramos and Karen finally admit to the feelings that they have for each other and maybe find happiness for once in each other? Enjoyable read and look forward to book 3 in this series. I listened to the audiobook and loved the narration. Wen and Kai did a great job!
I received a credit from the author and voluntarily left my honest review.
