As Abe and Sarah's marriage crumbles through drugs, grief, broken promises and harsh words Sarah thought it would totally break her.. and it nearly did. But, after the heartache of a love lost, hurtful words and shattered dreams dwindled to manageable pain, Sarah blossomed into a successful businesswoman and took over her own life.. and the direction it took. Abe however was hurting.. still hurting over the death of his little sister and heartbroken over the loss of the woman he deeply loved - so what did he do? Well, like any good Rocker.. he partied - partied hard - partied until his Band mates checked him into rehab. When he wasn't high or drunk anymore, and could think clearly, he knew one thing.. he wanted his wife back - and he'd move heaven and earth to get her to love him again.
And so starts this romantic second chance love story because Abe is given the unexpected chance to show Sarah how much he's changed, how much he regrets his past behaviour, how much he's willing to do anything for her.. and how much he loves her. But Sarah is very cautious about lowering her shields and letting Abe in to maybe shatter her world all over again. So it's up to Abe to show Sarah rather than tell her that the old Abe is gone.. replaced by a caring, loving, dependable.. and sober Abe.
While this was an enjoyable dual POV love story, I did feel the loss of certain scenes that would have made this listen more punchy, deeper and dramatic. However, after their rocky start, Abe and Sarah sailed nicely into their HEA's with no dramas or angsty situation - except the background worry that things would go smoothly for all. There were sex scenes but they weren't over described, overdone or prolonged, all the other well loved band mates (and their significant others) were present.. and sometimes the spotlight was turned their way - and there were a few other secondary characters too. I love Justine O. Keef's narration - her male voices are great and so too were the secondary characters whose voices were all different.
Worth a credit? Nalini Singh has wrapped up this series well, tied a shiny ribbon around it.. and even given us a big fat bow on top.. so hell yeah it's creditworthy.

I read an earlier review by someone who said nothing really happened in this story. So very true. In fact it was more as if the outline of the book was narrated instead of the book. We mostly just hear time moved on and during that time x y and z happened and it's later now.
It truly prevents you from being invested in the storyline or the characters. It's been awhile since I read and listened to the other books but I didn't remember them being written in the same way. Very disappointing and I think I'll ask for my credit back. Wait for a sale or buy one get one deal otherwise you will be disappointed

Nalini I loved the way you've ended.each & every one of THE CHOIR BOYS lives with their partners, but oh heck Abe's & Sarah's editor story broke my heart in areas but yes we has humour & the glow of THE INTENSITY of each one of them but oh god Abe's & Sarah's had been the best of the ROCK KISS SERIES
I've enjoyed all 5 of the series and I would recommend to romance lovers. I wish you could do the psy/changeling books
I love reading Nalini Singh's books so much. her story telling and writing technique just grabs hold of your soul and takes it for a ride. Abe and Sarah's story broke my heart, chucked me into a hopeless pit when she had to leave to build herself up and reignited my finding love a second time beleives when Abe decided to own up to his mistakes. It flowed, it made you made and you cheered the character's on. Thank you for this series.
