Exhale and Move On AUDIO BOOK by K.L. Shandwick – Review by Shadel Ayerbe

Exhale and Move OnExhale and Move On by K.L. Shandwick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Exhale and Move On AUDIO by KL Shandwick is a romantic story between two amazing characters. It is a M/M romance story.

When you’ve lived the wild rock and roll lifestyle that Rick Fars has, it’s no surprise that you’ve been there, done that, and in Rick’s case, most certainly left your T-shirt on the floor of some woman’s bedroom. Rick has never been taken by a woman as a wealthy playboy bachelor, but he has been taken many times. Rick appears to be living the dream on the outside, but looks can be deceiving, and Rick’s life is considerably more complicated than most people think. Will Rick’s future help him understand his own psyche when the past and present collide?

I loved every page of it. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK by K.L. SHANDWICK – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

This is a great audio. An emotional rollercoaster as I am listening to the story…. I stop and my heart is just breaking at points of what happens. Definitely emotional listen when tragedy strikes Valerie and her family. Hearing the back story as well of Flynn…. just tore at my heartstrings. The narrator is fantastic as well. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wheww this novel is emotion!!l. There was alot of character and world building in this story, at times I did feel some of this could have been left out as it wasn’t essential to the story, however I felt that by the end of the book I knew the characters well and so I felt their highs and theirs lows with them. I did have to remind myself that Valerie, the main female character, is actually quite young in this novel as I felt there were alot of adult themes for a young woman of 15 to 18 years of age. I liked that the book ends on a cliff hanger as I am now eager to read the next one. I really enjoyed the narration of this book as I felt the narrator really brought the personalities of the characters to life which I feel is important for such an emotionally hard hitting story.

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK by K.L. SHANDWICK – Review by Dani Dando

Imagine meeting the one that you know you are meant to be with, but the timing being all wrong? That’s what it’s like for Valerie and Flynn. Fate for them like to intervene and then sucker punch them for good measure. I’m not kidding, I listened to this in one day, and what an emotional rollercoaster that was.

So Valerie happens to be the little sister to Flynn’s best friend, and though there is that unspoken, or sometimes spoken rule about not touching the younger sister of a mate, neither of them can help the attraction. But as previously stated, Flynn and Valerie don’t do rainbows and ponies, and it takes time before their paths would cross and they could finally meet each other on a level of love and understanding that was always there, it was just too soon.

Honestly, I love how Shandwick tells this story, she really builds the characters and their relationship instead of rushing it. I felt like I got to know the characters as they grew and grew into their feelings, finally knowing them for what they were and being able to express them. There is such love and heart in this book and am excited for the rest of the series. Bring it on.

4 Star Review

The first book in the Ready For Flynn series. An absolute roller coaster for your emotions! You follow teenager Valerie as she learns about life and love. You will question if anyone is really ready for Flynn.

Valerie is a girl protected by her 3 older brothers and parents, no one seems good enough when she meets Flynn. There were times I just wanted to scream at her for the moves she makes and others I would have applauded. There were times I couldn’t believe Flynn the rock star would put up with Valerie’s crap. In short, this book will keep you guessing and wanting more!

4 Stars!!!!

Well I love finding new authors and I also like finding new books as well as audio books. This was a really good listen. This is the first book from this author that I have read/heard. I really enjoyed the book and the narrator was very good and added to the experience.

I could really relate to Valerie and that 15 year old crush. I really found this book to be quite a good read and I just couldn’t stop listening. I will definitely read or listen to more from this author in future.

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK by K.L. SHANDWICK – Review by Piper Foster

This is my first audio and book by this author. Valeried I wasn’t quite prepared for what happen in this story , yet this story WILL affect you.

Chemistry between Valerie and Fylnn is really well written. This couple goes through so many hardships. Age differences and life pulls them both in different directions. Tears flowed, heartbeats hammered and laughs came easily. The reader was treated to hot sexy scenes to extremely sweet scenes. I really can’t wait to read /listen to the next part of this story.

Exhale and Move On AUDIO BOOK by K.L. Shandwick – Review by Alexandria Richard

A steamy MMF “bad boy” rock star romance. 4/5 Stars

“Exhale and move on” is a mantra Rick Fars has lived by. When something isn’t going right, just exhale and move on. He has become a bit disenfranchised with the “rock star” life. Sure he’s still getting laid and having fun, but it has become more of the same old. That is until he starts allowing himself to feel his feelings, and to explore what they could be if he followed through on them.

I really enjoyed listening to Rick’s story, and jeesh was the sex HOT. There’s BDSM scenes, M/M, and (multiple) threesomes. This story is not for the faint of heart with the explicitness.

I enjoyed the insight to the turmoil someone in the spotlight could be feeling in their relationships and with themself. Rick is someone who is still exploring who he is and what he wants in life. He may be the “bad boy” but he also has a soft side, planning a benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The one thing that made me not be able to give “Exhale and Move On” a 5-star rating was the bouts of slight homophobia from one of the prominent characters. While that may be more realistic, I wasn’t a fan of reading that in a romance novel meant to be MMF.

I have not read K.L. Shandwick before, but the smooth writing (and narration) in this novel drew me in. I also enjoyed all the information about the the other couples and musicians surrounding Rick, leaving me researching the other books with said characters.

Bolton Hill also did a fabulous job narrating “Exhale and Move On.” His voice and tone was spot on for everything. He sounded like he was actually experiencing the feelings the characters were.

Exhale and Move On AUDIO BOOK by K.L. Shandwick – Review by Amanda DelFemine

I will start out by saying that this was the first book I have ever listened to in this genre.  With that being said I thought this book was fantastic.  K.L. Shandwicks writing style and story line of sex, drugs and rock and roll were easy to listen to.  Not to mention how much she and Rick Fars made me want to jump in and have some fun of my own.

Rick finds himself faced with challenges like most rock stars they don’t find love easily. Lifestyles can change in minutes when the past comes knocking on the door or old flames try to rekindle something and you have to choose what makes you happy even if that makes others uncomfortable but in the end you have to do what makes you happy and try something new.  Some people will understand you and some will not.  You know what, that’s ok.  So just be yourself and Exhale and Move On.

My rating 4 out of 5

 

This is the first book by K. L. Shandwick I have read. This book is extremely well written. The characters are vivid and you find yourself wanting them to find what they have been looking for and need in their life. Love and acceptance of your wants and needs is what most people search for and this book is all about not only others acceptance but of the characters acceptance of themselves. Be careful not to burn yourself from the heat coming off this book.
