Description

Buzzing anticipation. Floating weightless. Adrenaline rush. All the best feelings wrapped into an emotional high that never gets old. I think I might be addicted to falling in love. 

When rising rock star Jack Kingston comes to play on our college campus, I think he’ll be just another fix. Instead, he flips everything around and makes me question who I am, what I want, and why I do what I do. After he leaves, everything changes. 

Pushing myself in the pool, struggling to keep up with my twin sister, it’s what keeps me from losing myself entirely. Swimming isn’t my passion. It’s my source of stability. When I find the courage to finally start pushing my boundaries, I discover success in ways I never imagined, both in and out of the water. 

When Jack resurfaces, I'm forced to decide between facing my fears or letting them spiral out of control as my past catches up with me...threatening to pull me back under. It's time to sink or swim.

enjoyed

I enjoyed this audible book and I already read the book but it was even better with the narration. I think the narrator was a good fit this story. I really like kick as a character because she isn't your typical female character she more like a tone boy and a bit of a player. Kick is a twin and her sister has her own book while you don't have to read the other one first it's fun to see the comparison in the stories. If you've read any other books from this author you will enjoy this one too.

This was REAL...

What started out as a story that I thought would be a typical romance, quickly turned into a story about some real issues that could easily occur on college campuses in real life. Ali has a way of addressing these issues and making you understand that some things are just not your fault even when you try to justify it to yourself. I don't want to mention details regarding specifics, but bottom line; LISTEN/READ THIS BOOK! I thoroughly enjoyed it even though evoked some tough emotions and thoughts from me. Well done, Ali!

Another great story from Ali Dean!

I have already read kick and loved it! I was excited to listen to the audio version of this book. Stacey Glemboski did not disappoint! Her performance was spot on portraying the characters emotions and struggles. Her performance made this book even better. I would give it 10 stars if I could!

Kick is a girl addicted to falling in love at least for the day. She likes the control and being in control of the situation. She likes the euphoria of meeting someone and deciding when it’s time to leave. These types of arrangements suits her just fine until she meets Jack.
Jack is in a band and is smitten with kick he wants more from kick then her normal arrangement. Jack turns her world upside down and makes her rethink what she wants. But something is holding her back, an event from her past. Will kick be able to overcome this to be able to completely fall in love?

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading the first book The line Below to get some back stories on some of these characters.

Please Don't Let This Be the End

Once again Ali Dean and Stacey Glemboski hit it out of the park with this sequel, and hopefully not the end of the Spark sisters. While this book overlaps the first just a smidge, I did not feel that it was repetitive in anyway. In fact, it was great to see certain scenes from another prospective. It also gave the reader a great understanding of the timeline without shoving it in their face. Ms. Dean is a talented writer who has mastered the art of drawing a reader in and involving them in the story.
This is especially obvious since I’m not usually a big fan of sports stories.

Once again, Ms. Glemboski provided a spot-on narration for the book. I loved that she added in accents where they were called for and didn’t ignore the writer’s call.

The only negative I would have is if this is the last we see of the Spark sisters or their friends. I would imagine that there is a lot more Ms. Dean could say about these two and I would certainly love to read it.

I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

A Good Follow-Up Book

As someone who really enjoyed The Line Below, having the second story of the series being about Lydia was a good choice.

I liked that it portrayed some of the events found in the first book from Lydias perspective before jumping forward into her own storylines.

Not going to lie, I enjoyed the relationship development between Lydia and Jack. There were quite a few bumps in the road, but they were able to work through them. Nolan can go to heck, as far as I’m concerned though.

I also enjoyed that Shay and Jett and the rest of the good minor characters from the first book made appearances through out this book.

Some of the scenes with Lydia were hard to listen to but I think any kinds of scenes that deal with the aftermath of dealing with traumatic events will be hard to listen to.

The narration was good, I like the narrator.


Overall, this was a pretty good sequel/ follow up to The Line Below. I would rate this 4 out of 5 stars, because there is talking about and dealing with the aftermath of an traumatic event.

Another great sports romance

Ali Dean writes great sports romance. She writes in a way I can picture the athletes and the bands actually performing. It’s best to listen to, and Stacey does a great job in narrating both voices. I recommend this fantastic audiobook.

Completely different to book 1, but just as great.

Shay and Kick are fraternal twins and the heroine of this novel, Kick, first appears in her sister’s book, THE LINE BELOW.
I enjoyed listening to this story straight after THE LINE BELOW, as some of the scenes in both books cross over. Each book is a stand-alone, but the events in THE LINE BELOW occur first in time and so I suggest reading the books in order if you can, but it’s not essential.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of a great romance (2 romances if I include THE LINE BELOW) especially because the writing and narration are both excellent.

I highly recommend this duo of novels set in college and in the swimming world.

I found Ali Dean because I wanted to hear Stacey Glemboski narrate. What a lucky find.

This is so good!!

Ali Dean tackles a subject in this book that isn’t always dealt without as well as she did here. Kick (Lydia) is a swimmer in college, who has lived life in her terms.. getting what she wants with no strings and no regrets... until one night.

Jack is in a band that is in the upward track to fame and he’s had enough of no strings and is looking for more.

This is an excellent story that deals with someone who doesn’t think they are enough.. good enough, strong enough, worth enough. It takes you through happenings and thought processes and healing! It’s a great listen, and Stacey Glemboski does a wonderful job with the narration and the different characters.

I recommend this highly!!!

Loved it

Kick, has problems of her own she gives out the vibe of, live in the moment for excitement, partying, hooking up! But she is really insecure with the plans for herself .
She is scared of not knowing what she really wants. Is she swimming for herself or just something to do with her sister. It's the only thing that keeps her grounded. Her life of one night stands change after meeting A musician, Jack Kingston. He has her questioning herself, she doesn't do relationships, but does she feel comfortable with the one night stand? What makes Jack Kingston so different?
This is a story of truths, lies, insecurities, hidden secrets, having confidence in self and finding love. its about Kick finally rethinking what matters most in her life.
Ali Dean explores the struggles and commitments to become a collegiate athlete! Showing Kick at her strongest, weakest and most vunerable. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Stacey Glemboski is phenomenal in her narration. Her voices and personalities for each character were spot on! Her ability to transition from one character to the other is flawless. 🎧#audiobookobsessionreviewr.
