Audible Review: MISSING FROM ME by Jayne Frost

December 16, 2017

Missing From Me by Jayne Frost
One mistake. Four years of regret. A second chance worth fighting for.

When I traded one dream for another, she was the price. My Anna. But I never forgot her. Never let go. And no amount of drumming could drown out my love for her. Her music is my head.


And when I see her again, it's so clear. Anna is mine. She'll always be mine. I just have to convince her.

Missing From Me is an epic story about second chances, redemption, undying love, and music. Because every great romance deserves a soundtrack.

This was the first time I’ve ever read/listened to a book and I’ll get into my evaluation of this experience in a bit. But first, let me tell you what I thought of the book. This story had my stomach tight with a bundle of nerves right to the end. I was anxious, frustrated, angry, amused, happy, and a whole whack of other emotions I won’t bore you with. If you’re looking for an easy romance, you won’t find that here. This was an authentic look into what it is to want to realize your dreams while trying to hold onto your love and understanding that sometimes both at one time aren’t possible. It’s about unbelievable second chances and finding out that love blooms even when you’re not around to nurture it. It’s about music, celebrity, drama, regret, hope and love. So. Much. Love!

Sean tested my patience. I went from hating him to loving him to hating him to loving him again. I’m sure you’ve experienced those types of characters too. The ones who do such stupid things, don’t properly communicate, hurt the ones they love, continue to do stupid things, all while making you swoon at their internal thoughts. Yup, that was Sean. My emotions also went through the wringer with Anna. She drove me insane!! And the secret she kept almost flushed my respect for her down the toilet. That is not a secret to keep. EVER!! In the end, I loved these guys. You know the author’s good when she has you going through so much angst right along with the people she’s created. And there was a heck of a lot of angst.

Okay, so how did my first experience with an audiobook go? I’m still on the fence. I really enjoyed the male narrator’s voice, even when he made it go soft for Anna’s part. I wasn’t a fan of the female narrator’s voice though. It sounded a bit robotic, to be honest. And I didn’t like how either of them did a baby voice. What the heck was that? Also, it took me far longer to listen to this book than it did for me to read it. I get the allure of audiobooks. I understand that it frees your hands and eyes for other things. However, it didn’t really work for me. Loved the story, but it’s a ‘meh’ on the listening part.
