Endless by Kaylene Winter is the first book in the Less Than Zero series. Is it is rockstar/second chance/love at first sight/coming of age romance about Zoey and Ty. Zoey was almost eighteen and about to start college when they met and Ty was twenty-one and about to go on tour with his rock band. This is their love story.
I listened to this book in audiobook format and really enjoyed it. The audiobook was well done and the narrators were perfect for their parts in this two person POV story. If audiobooks are your jam, this book is an enjoyable listen. This was my first book by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. She wrote a story with good character and story development and world building. I look forward to the stories of the other members of Less Than Zero, Ty’s band. There were a few times I was frustrated with Zoey, but I think the reader is supposed to be frustrated with her choices. Both main characters definitely had enough flaws to make them relatable. The author included just the right amount of spice. This is a simple story with a happy ending, and I would recommend it to lovers of contemporary romance, especially if the reader is a fan of spicy stories in the rockstar trope. I am voluntarily submitting this review after listening to an advanced complementary copy of this audiobook thanks to Valentine PR and Audible Audio.
Audio - narrated by Greg Salinas and Sophie Daniels
The audio version was done well. It was smooth listening. Both characters were brought to life. We also got the added benefit of music introducing each chapter.
What ride. Between the two of them we get all the tropes:
Love at first sight
Other woman drama
The young love of Zoey and Ty was perfect. It was romantic, fast, sweet and everything a first love should be. On paper they don’t match. But love is blind
Zoey was 18 about to start college. Ty was 21 and heading to rock stardom.
She had a stable life with great parents. His mom was a drug addict. His life was messy.
They thought they had forever until they didn’t.
This story has everything. It takes us from the innocent eyes of young love to the harsh realities of adulthood. Once they reunite things get crazy. It is one obstacle after another. The main one being their insecurities.
We experience the heartbreak, anger, angst, and insecurities through the thoughts of both characters. We get a ring side seat of their emotions before and during the breakup. The reunion was a story unto itself. It was a rough road to HEA.
