Strings of the Heart took me on an Emotional rollercoaster! I found myself destroyed at times and laughing out loud at others.
From a young age Allison has been in love with her big brothers bandmate and friend, Rhys. Rhys is a complicated man who knows Allison is off-limits, but after several shots of tequila and being around Allison for weeks, he lets his guard down and spends one scorching hot night with Allison. Realizing the terrible mistake he made, Rhys lies to Allison about his feelings and breaks Allison’s heart. As if things between Allison and Rhys are not complicated enough, Rhys and Allison end up on tour together. Strings of the Heart will make you take you on one wild ride.
Allison and Rhys have such an undeniable pull toward one another, and I could not help but be sucked in their story. I loved the way the story is written in Duel point of view.
Allison’s character is narrated by Justine O. Keef. Justine has an enjoyable southern accent that really brought Allison to life. Allison is an amazing character. I love her passion, how she knows what she wants, and how she cares so deeply for her family. Justine did a wonderful job displaying the gentle nature of Allison. Her voice fit perfectly, and allowed for Allison’s emotions to shine through her character. Allison is relatable, and I couldn’t help but love her.
Rhys’s character is narrated by Luke Daniels. Rhys is older than Allison, so Luke’s deep and rough voice fit him nicely. Rhys is such a complex character. Knowing that Allison should be off limits, and having so many deep issues with love and family in general, Rhys is dark and edgy. Rhys battling with himself made for one crazy rollercoaster ride. I love how Luke was able to display Rhys’s confusion, and showcase his depth with his amazing voice.
Stings of the Heart is the 3rd book in the Runaway Train Series and can be read as a standalone. Strings of the Heart is my 1st introduction to this series, and I want more. Katie Ashley captured my attention, and I would like to read more of her work. I would recommend Strings of the Heart.
