They were once all happy friends.. Dominic, Karen and Ramon.. three teens.. two handsome band mates.. two boys in love with the same girl and, as their fame grew, it would be sensible loving Dominic that would remain grounded and marry the girl. Ramon on the other hand was a womanizer who didn’t want to settle down.. and he’d missed his opportunity with Karen anyway so he threw himself into the rocker lifestyle.
But, as the years passed, attitudes changed.. priorities changed.. lives changed.. emotions changed.. situations changed.. loyalties changed.. dynamics changed, friendships changed and love changed. Dominic went to war, Ramon became a Rock God and Karen?.. well for years she was left in limbo trying to support her husband and hold on to their one-sided marriage. And, as Ramon and Karen fought their mutual attraction for fifteen years, it would be a neverending emotional rollercoaster of loyalties vs friendships, hunger vs heartbreak, pleasure vs pain, anguish and angst. Because, despite their chemistry and attraction, these two characters suffered from mistrust, bad timing, misunderstandings, mistruths and insecure anxieties over each other’s feelings.
Told in present-past-present dual POV. I did enjoy this multi-layered impressive slow burn of an enduring love story. But, as the hours counted down to mere minutes, I was a bit miffed because there just wasn’t enough time for me to wallow in a chapter or three of the gooey reveal afterglow feels before - bang - the Epilogue. This was because it took too damn long for them to finally tell each other how they truly felt and I seriously wanted to knock their heads together. The sex scenes, when they eventually err ‘came’, were long overdue, sexy and hot. Kai and Wen’s awesome duet style of narration gave it a more realistic feel with each sticking to their own genders voices.. and IMO they always bring it to life.. they always give 5 star performances.. and they always make listening a pleasure.
Worth a credit? Yeah sure.. Destiny gave Ramon and Karen a second chance.. but Fate made them hurt and wait a long long looooong time for it.

Remon was best friends with his band mate Patch. Patch married Karen and left for the military. Remon was in love with Karen but he lived the wild life with other women. Patch was really mad when he found out that Remon had bought Karen a surf shop. Patch was killed in service. Did Remon let Karen know he loved her? You will have to listen to the fantastic narration by Wen and Kai!
