Audiobook Review: Playing at Love by Lara Ward Cosio

Audiobook Review: Playing at Love by Lara Ward Cosio

He’s the gorgeous guitarist trying to right the wrongs of his past.
She’s still stinging from a brutal breakup and looking for stability.
Love with a guitar god can burn bright . . . or go up in flames.

Conor Quinn is the gorgeous rock star guitarist for the popular, yet recently troubled band Rogue. And he’s made a mistake. A stomach-churning, heart-aching, nothing-will-ever-be-right-again mistake.

So, what do you do after your mistake – your betrayal – has been revealed? One that’s threatened both a lifelong friendship and a music partnership? If you’re book-smart but love-dumb Conor, you woo back your ex in an effort to prove you’ve moved on.

But when Conor’s old schoolmate unexpectedly returns to his world, he gravitates with increasing frequency toward their renewed friendship. Harmless flirting soon turns into real temptation and suddenly Conor’s questioning whether his impetuous reunion with his ex means he’s missed his chance with the right woman.

Can Conor make the right decisions and finally stop playing at love?

Playing At Love is the second book in the Rogue Series. While it focuses on Conor’s story, Gavin and Sophie’s story also continues!

My Review:
Title: Playing at Love
Author: Lara Ward Cosio
Format: Audio
Narrator: Lee Brophy
Genre: Romance – Rockstar, second-chance
Standalone: Not really – Ready Book 1: Tangled Up in You first
Part of a Series: Book 2 of the Rogue series
POV: Connor/Felicity and Gavin/Sophie mostly
Steam Level: Toasty at time

I listened to Tangled Up In You a while ago and, at the time, was excited to hear book 2 Playing At Love. Like Gavin and Connor’s friendship/bromance these two books are intertwined with the fallout of Tangled Up in You playing out in Playing At Love. It took me a little bit to get back into the story but, once I did, I didn’t want to stop listening. I love Lee Brophy’s accent, making this Irish band’s story more authenticity…and it’s easy on the ears. Lara Ward Cosio does a great job in exploring the emotions of anger, hurt, betrayal, jealousy, and, eventually, forgiveness from the events that unfolded in Tangled Up In You. I hope the rest of this series comes out in audio and Lee Brophy continues to narrate them. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the guys’ stories.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsessions. This is my honest and voluntary review.
