Audiobook Review ~ The Mixtape by Brittainy C. Cherry

The MixtapeThe Mixtape by Brittainy C. Cherry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Mixtape was an ok read to listen to. I enjoyed how the story unfolded, however I felt the narration from both narrators was a bit slow. I had to speed up the book so it didn’t feel so dragged out.

I liked both Oliver and Emery, the connection that they had and how they both grew the longer they knew one another. They both enjoyed music and it was something that they bonded over. Oliver was unable to get help to forgive himself. I felt Emery was too quick to push Oliver away.

I felt a few threads weren’t tied up properly. A story from the past wasn’t addressed, and seemed either part of Oliver and Emery’s connection, or completely irrelevant. Emery’s parents were nasty… I couldn’t believe how heartless they were. Oliver’s family and friends were awesome. Overall, an ok read, just didn’t have any wow factors for me.

Since the death of his twin brother, Oliver’s caught between pleasing his fans and finding himself. Emery finds him first.

Emery has never felt more alone. Raising her daughter is both her pleasure and her pain as she struggles to hold on to her job as a bartender and keep a roof over their heads. With no one to help them—no support system—any unexpected expense or late bill could turn their whole world upside down.

Reeling from the death of his twin brother and bandmate, rock star Oliver Smith is trying to drink his problems away. Apparently he isn’t very good at it; they follow him wherever he goes. Also in hot pursuit are the paparazzi, who catch Oliver at his lowest low.

He could have walked into any bar in California, but he walked into hers. Emery helps Oliver lose the crowd, and they find themselves alone: two people whose paths are marked with loss and pain. However, they hold an unshakable hope for healing. They find solace together, but can their love withstand the world?
