Ready For Flynn, Part 1 (Ready for Flynn Series) Audio Book by K.L. Shandwick – Review by Charlisa Wahtomy-Alba

Valerie is a 15-year-old who developed a crush on her brothers roommate when he was brought home for Thanksgiving. Sparks fly between the two, but Flynn is warned off by her brother. Because of his love and respect for his roommate he doesn’t act on his feelings. Flynn feels that the best course of action is to leave Valerie alone until she is ready to move forward with a relationship if she so chooses. At first she is upset that he left without a good-bye, but over time she does her best to get over him. She soon starts to date a young man that she grew up with and whom her family seems to like very well. Flynn of course has always been in the back of her mind and she has kept up to date with him once she found out he dropped out of school to become a rock star. When tragedy strikes and she loses several people she loves in an accident, Flynn is there by her side to help her though it all. Will there ever be a time when he doesn’t answer her call? He is a big celebrity now and has millions of people watching every aspect of his life while Valerie is a small town girl living on a farm. Listening to all the heartache that Valerie endured while she was going through her teen years was tough. I admit I cried a bit, but there were also moments that made me smile and laugh. I enjoy reading books, but to hear the emotion behind words is sometimes more powerful than what is written on the page. Both the author and narrator did a great job bringing these characters to life and making them relatable.


Ready For Flynn Audio Book by K.L. Shandwick is Part 1 in the Ready For Flynn series. This book was such a surprise for me and how emotional I found it. I pretty much went into this book blind and I found myself completely swept up in the story and the journey of Valerie. I completely didn’t expect just how emotional I would find this book. Even as I was listening I knew what was about to happen and yet it still caught me completely off guard.

I thought the book itself was well written and paced perfectly and it was also narrated just right. I could easily picture everything that the author had written and I found myself getting lost in the voice. This is a brilliant book and a great audio book. I would highly recommend it!

Exhale and Move On AUDIO BOOK by K.L. Shandwick – Review by Heather Lovelace

Four stars

Shandwick is a fairly new author to me and this book – wow. I really appreciated the way the narrator brought the characters to life. I was riveted from the beginning and had to finish it in one sitting. An excellent listen and one I will gladly recommend.


Ready For Flynn, Part 1 AUDIO BOOK by K.L. Shandwick was an emotional listen. I loved the author’s attention to detail and the narrator’s ability to bring it all to life. You get swept into Valerie’s life and like everyone’s life at 15 it is dramatic. I enjoyed Flynn’s character and the fact that he kept coming back for Valerie. I went through a ton of emotions and loved every minute of it. This book was definitely a great escape.

Exhale and Move On by K.L. Shandwick 

Narrated by Bolton Hill

Four Stars


Exhale and Move On is a highly erotic romance by K.L. Shandwick. It started out fast paced and continued to be highly entertaining throughout the story. I love Rock n’ Roll romances, but this one I think is really close to how those band really live on the road. I enjoyed the interaction between Rick, Lennon and Coral, but I have to say this book is not safe to listen to at work. 

This os also my first book narrated by Bolton Hill. His voice is deep and sexy. He really brought the characters to life. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I’m definitely looking for more books narrated by Bolton Hill in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What happens when you can get everything in the world but the one thing you thought you never wanted comes and creeps up on you.

Rick can everything and everyone he wants but is this enough in his life or is his missing something, but can he truly go after what he desires or will he push down his secret that he has been harbouring for the last right years.

This story if not for the faint hearted, this story has twists and turns which have you listening intently to the story to see where this goes. I loved the way the secondary characters enhance the story and move you to get to know them also. With an audio book you get to embrace the novel and feel like you are living the words right with the characters as they meander through the story to the conclusion. I have know about Rick from previous books in this series but enjoyed finding his history.

Sizzling Hot and Relevant

Author K.L. Shandwick has mastered the art of taking you on a ride of exploration, through personal self introspective, sexual exploration, self awareness and love for others through past pain. I listened to this book in one day. The main characters were so vivid you felt their triumphs and pain to your core. I laughed at times and was also shocked at times ( in a good way) . When the past meets the present sparks fly. An amazing day spent in the imagination of this wonderful author. I will certainly read this author again.

Exhale and Move On


By K.L. Shandwick 


This is a full length steamy romance story. Definitely not for those under 18. But the rest of us can listen and enjoy.


RICK Fars has what every man could want. His music has made him popular with the help of his band. More money than he could ever spend. He has any woman he wants. Which he takes, but no true romance and never the same one. He loves women sometimes 2 at a time. But there is still something missing. Will conversations and honesty help him find what is missing? Can he accept where his life is leading him?


 K.L. Shandwick is one of my favorite romance authors. Although this genre took me to unexplored territory. I enjoyed this story as well as the narration. This story is fast paced and interesting. So much so I could not stop listening.The characters played their parts well. Coral quietly questioned her choices. But the boys have their own questions as well.  I found this story informative as well as interesting. K.L. Shandwick never disappoints, this book proved that. Well Done K.L. Shandwick! Well Done!



This is a first author for me. I loved this story and the narration was fantastic. This story was amazing and well thought out with consistent word building to keep you on the edge of your seat. This story follows Valerie from the times she’s 15 till she’s almost 19. The trials and life situations she has to endure hard heart and soul shattering. Everything about this story is great. There were a few times I wanted to yell at her, but it’s been a real long time since I was 15. Which with all the emotion this book brought out in me I’d have to say it was FANTASTIC! Can’t wait for the next part in Flynn and Valerie’s story.
