Description

"A captivating, heart-aching, and beautifully written book. The best story I've heard this year." (J. Bengtsson, best-selling author of The Cake Series)
 

Once, I had everything.
Drummer for the biggest band in the world.
Fame. Money. Happiness.
All at my fingertips.

Then, six years ago, my world stopped turning.
My best friend. My best girl. A burning field in the pouring rain.
I survived, but I left the biggest part of me with them.
And now I sift through the rubble of my broken life.

I didn't want a second chance.
Redemption. Closure. 
Not for me.

Until Gelsey
A dancer. A dreamer.
Everything I'm not.
She's the dark to my light.
My sun from another sky.

But sunny days never last.
The storm is coming.
And this time when darkness falls, I might surrender.

Another Sky is a stand-alone rock star romance set in Austin, Texas, with ties to the Sixth Street Bands Series.

Miles & Gelsey are life!

Jayne Frost's name should be known wide and far. Her extraordinary talent for writing deeply emotional stories, that stay with you for a long time, always gets me like a visceral sucker punch and every time I experience one of her stories I fall in love with the characters. Miles and Gelsey are no different.

If you know this author and thought DOWN TO YOU was her best book, prepare for ANOTHER SKY. I'm not saying it's better, it isn't. But that's because Logan and Tori hold a special place in my heart and it's hard to live up to them. But you know what? Gelsey and Miles did. I adored Gelsey's pure heart and innocence. The way she looked at the world, wide-eyed, open although she wasn't a stranger to disappointment and setbacks.

Miles couldn't have asked for a better partner in life. After the tour bus accident we learned about in the Sixth Street Bands series, when he lost his love Paige and best friend Rhenn, Miles stopped living and fell into an uneasy existence. He battles demons that go beyond this accident, and my heart ached for both of them when things tumbled out of control. I loved that he ultimately realized that giving up isn't an option if he wanted to live a full life with Gelsey at his side.

If you missed Taryn from LOST FOR YOU you get the chance to catch up with her a little. I adored Miles and Taryn's friendship, how much love there was between them. We get some hilarious scenes with Daryl, a bodyguard forced on Miles by Tori - their snarky exchanges were my favorite thing and I kind of think that this is a bromance in the making. And then there is Ivan, Gelsey's mentor, who is the only father figure she ever really had in her life. He seems so stern, hard and unrelenting but he has a buttery-soft spot for Gelsey. I loved him almost as much as the two leads.

The single most important theme in Ms. Frost's stories is music. It's so present that it seems like its a separate character. This time ballet dance joins in and I loved reading about Gelsey's practices and performances.

Both narrators do an amazing job breathing life into these characters. While Jacob Morgan is well known and always delivers. Desiree Ketchum is a fresh young voice I hadn't heard before Another Sky. She was perfect for Gelsey!

This story isn't dark. It gives you as the audience hope with its light, beautiful moments. ANOTHER SKY is like life - it shows you that everyone - rich or poor, famous or not - has their burden to carry but that there is always hope. Wrapped in Jayne Frost's gorgeous, descriptive writing this story will make you smile, swoon and sniffle a little. She gets me every time. Every. Time.

A beautiful angsty story that will fill your heart up

I honestly don’t know what I am getting into. Should have prepare my heart to be torn open and then fill back up again. Jayne wrote such a beautiful story about love, redemption and acceptance. She wrote from such a persona space that you can feel it in the journey that Miles went through. Love JM’s portrayal and depiction of Miles. Part douch, part vulnerable, totally worthwhile. Desiree’s portrayal is heartwarming, sweet and strong willed. Love her Russian accent. Honestly it’s Jayne’s own words at the end that made me cry the most.

Another amazing experience!

I had the privilege of proofing this audio and have since listened again. Sometimes you connect with a book in a way that is difficult to explain. This is my favorite of the Sixth- Street-related books so far. This story is not about "instalove". Sometimes you lose yourself in guilt, loss, grief, PTSD, and depression. It can last for years, or even be permanent for some people. It takes someone special to help you push yourself to something more, something potentially devastating but also potentially amazing! This book takes you on the journey of healing and finding all-encompassing love along with these complex characters.

Performances are excellent! We all know to expect AWESOME with Jacob Morgan. Desireé Ketchum is new to me, but I enjoyed proofing this audio and look forward to hearing more books performed by her.

Miles and Gelsey!

There is something about the writing style of Jayne Frost that drags me into her world and keeps me there for the entire story. I have listened to her entire Sixth Street Band series, and when Miles comes up, I am always intrigued by his character. I am so glad he is now getting his story told. Miles is a survivor of a terrible accident, claiming the lives of several of his bandmates, one very close to him. Learning to live with being a survivor is not easy, but he carries more than that over the incident, falls to his depression and is now years later trying to find his way back to the living. He will need help though, not just mentally but physically. Gelsey is a ballerina, shadowed by the fame of her mother, trying to break out and become her own person. She is on her way, but is in desperate need of money, and Miles may have a way to help her out. When the two lives collide, life changes and their stories begin. Frost intricately and compassionately weaves in so much into this, I don't even know where to start. There is family history, happiness and disappointment, friendships that cannot be broken, hope, guilt, tragedy, you name it, and it is there. It has some angst, but written in a way that you aren't pulled down by it, but find the hope and chance to change the sky. It's my favorite of her books, not only because the story is so amazing, but the awareness brought to light of depression. It's not sugar coated, but lets us feel the pain and darkness and how it can be dealt with...or not. And the inclusion of little things, like poems and flowers, benches and skies. It's a beautiful listen and makes me appreciate how good life can be.

Frost's decision to use Deriree Ketchum and Jacob Morgan was perfection. This casting brought all the emotions, all the feelings and every scene alive. I love Kecthum's voice. She has the best nuances and inflections, and she found her place as Gelsey. Morgan brought the brooding, Miles to life, finding his darkness and light and making him real. The team was amazing!

A Beautiful Story straight from the Heart!!!!

An emotionally heartbreaking, yet beautiful story that explores friendship, loss, guilt, grief, forgiveness, and love. Jayne Frost touches on so many topics in this story and even takes on the very sensitive topic of depression and losing loved ones to suicide. But she does it with such care and awareness that I know many people reading this will be able to relate.
When I first purchased this audiobook I was hesitant it would be a slow listen since it’s 12 hours long but I was completely wrong! This book has no “space fillers”. This book is full of everything worthwhile and each scene has purpose.

Miles is suffering from the loss of his best friends and band mates, Rhenn and Paige. He’s looking for comfort in the loneliness and coming up empty. He faces his demons through anger and rejection. Distancing himself from the friends he has and wallowing in the past. Now that he’s unable to play the drums, he is lost and searching for some type of meaning to push forward. A chance encounter brings him face to face with a feisty ballerina who is able to relate to him more than anyone in a long time.
Gelsey knows what it’s like to be alone. After losing her mother as a teenager then watching her father slip away to his gambling addiction, she’s no stranger to being left behind. She prides herself in her ability to dance but for her the stars don’t always align. With an injury that could be career stopping, she’s determined to make it to New York and show everyone that she’s earned her place and she is not only just the daughter of the best dancer to ever grace the stage.
I loved Miles and Gelsey together. They are opposites in every way on the outside. The rich musician and the broke ballerina, a notorious playboy to the world and the “little mouse” that has never even been touched by a man.
Their chemistry is sizzling and every encounter bleeds so much passion.

I’m so glad I discovered this author and cannot wait to read more of her work.
I listened to this on audiobook and highly enjoyed the narration. Jacob Morgan and Desiree Ketchum were fantastic portraying Miles and Gelsey. This is a raw performance by both narrators that truly showed a new side to their performance abilities. Would definitely recommend!!

Ballerina meets musician

It's hard to believe his is my first ever Jayne Frost book!! It was easy to love Miles and Gelsey, the are both beautiful and broken in so many ways. I love how they both didn't mean to find each other. Actually, they hated each other after their first meeting! This book may not be a typical musician book, but touched on some heavy topics.

The narration by Desiree Ketchum and Jacob Morgan was perfect
