Publisher's Summary

Sound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it's the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?
I've always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn't have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn't a single night that I didn't hear her voice.
You see, meeting the love of my life at age 13 was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of 21.
They both happened anyway.
Now, I'm on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.
Fighting for my career.
Fighting the impending silence.
Fighting for her.
Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.
I think that's the sound I'll miss the most.

Great MMA Rags to Riches Story

Man... this was a great book...

First and foremost... I hate dual narration... ergh!!! Why o why can't dual narration be girl read girl and guy read guy parts simultaneously!!! You have to keep adjusting to how the characters sound from the guys POV then the girls POV... ergh!!!

Anyway... my narration hiccups aside... this book was so good... This was my first Aly Martinez book.. and it won't be my last...

Till and Eliza are so cute... best friends to lovers... back to friends, then family, then lovers! Whew... what a ride... The love story was kinda a sidebar to all the action and drama from Till's and Eliza's daily life. Then the whole going deaf thing...OMG! Tear drop!!

The ending was really good...but I feel like it just ended... so there has to be a second book... and it better be one of Till's brother's book... the side characters were so 3-deminsional... I feel like I know them so well... and I miss them a bit now the book is over...

Very good job!

So worth a credit, sale or buy (as the book is under 10 bucks!)

Young fight for love!

This audiobook was so very enjoyable! I loved the characters of Eliza, Till, Flint and Quarry. The hero and heroine have loved each other since they were young teens and depend on each other to make it through the poverty of life, challenges of bad parenting and trying to make it in the world. At 17, Till becomes involved with a local gym owned by a former heavyweight boxing champion, while he is going deaf due to a genetic trait. He starts training and becomes very good at it, but is afraid to take the relationship with Eliza further because he doesn’t want to lose his best friend. Through the journey toward becoming a professional boxer and growing into adult love the author gives us a heartwarming story. Narration was well done as well.

Loved it!!

This is a beautiful and moving story.
And even though I've real a lot of friends to lovers stories, I found it to be very unique and had a refreshing plot.

It was funny and touching, as well as sexy and romantic.

Laura Jennings & Carson Beck did a fantastic job of bringing this story to live through their narrating.

.Real,raw.gritty,heart wrenching

Without being spoilery, I will say this: this book is heavy. This book knifes your heart and twists it until you bleed all your pre-conceived ideas about certain topics straight out the window. Beatiful, beautiful, beautiful. I was frustrated, happy, shocked, angry, in love, joyous, heartbroken, sad, exhilarated and awed -- I experienced everything on the emotional palette because this was such a great, solid book. I wanted more, perhaps an extra epilogue to make my greedy heart satisfied but I guess the cleverness and mastery of the book will have to suffice.Till , there are no words for the sheer badassery. almost-insufferable-at-times and others a lovable piece of star-hung perfection. I am a mess. Torn. So, so goddamn conflicted. Broken over the what-ifs of this book. Filled with sorrow. Proud.
I feel manipulated. Tricked. Heartbroken. Educated. Thankful. Mind screwed.But I loved how real it was how raw and gritty.. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .
