Publisher's Summary

Don't fall in love with your bandmate's girl.

It's an unspoken rule, and one I'm determined to follow. I've always been the guy to take the high road, to be the voice of reason, but when it comes to Jess, I'm tired of fighting this overwhelming attraction.

The more time we spend together, the more compelled I am to show her she's worthy of love and dreams of her own. The lines of my moral compass begin to blur. I should leave her alone, but I can't. I know it's wrong, but everything about us feels so right.

Despite everything I try, it doesn't change the truth. She's not mine.

I can't sit back and watch her love someone else. But if given the choice, will she even want me?

Sean is my new favorite book boyfriend............

Derail is the second book in this series by Kacey Shea featuring a highly successful rock band called 3 Ugly Guys. I highly recommend reading the first book in the series to get the full flavor of the band's history and relationships, but this second book can easily be enjoyed as a standalone. As with all of Kacey Shea's novels, this book will rip out your heart and stomp on it, but then it will uplift your spirit to the point of joy by the end. If you like a roller coaster of emotions, Derail has them all. Unlike many books in the rock star genre, I think this series does a good job of portraying the more difficult side of stardom. Also unlike most heroes in this genre, Sean is a genuinely kind and down-to-earth guy from the very beginning. He is into fitness and good health, and he isn't interested in meaningless sex with band groupies and hangers on. He is someone that I would really like as a friend, but that doesn't make him any less sexy to both readers and the heroine of the story, Jess. I must admit that I struggled in the beginning with Jess because allowing someone to treat me the way she let her boyfriend treat her seemed unthinkable, even though I know it happens all the time. However, as the story progressed, and I learned more about her history and character, I started to fight for her happily-ever-after right along with Sean. I can't imagine a better person for Jess than Sean, and I loved watching her bloom under his continuous love and respect. Although the book deals with a lot of heavy subjects, there are plenty of funny and steamy interactions as well, especially when the band mates start their shenanigans. I can't imagine any listener with a dry eye after hearing the epilogue, and I am already salivating for the next book in the series. Although I find it difficult to improve on a Kacey Shea story, the narrating team of Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder succeed in making this story even better. I read the book previous to listening, and the experience of Clarke's deep, sexy voice, and Wilder's gentle, almost lilting voice made the the story seem brand new. These two have an amazing chemistry together, and I could literally feel the emotions coming out of my iPod. Both delivery a flawless performance, and the sound quality is amazing. Overall, I highly recommend this audiobook for any romance lover, even those that have previously read the book. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for this honest review.

Beautiful Story!

Wow! I fell completely in love with Derail which is the second book in the Off Track Records series. Kacey Shea’s writing is absolutely fantastic and she nailed it again with the story of Sean and Jess. Some of the characters face real life issues that take you on a roller coaster of emotions and it is worth the ride! I was so captivated and just moved by these characters. Just like the first book Detour in this series, I highly recommend Derail! This one truly has you wanting more and more! I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder, both did an outstanding performance voicing Sean and Jess! This has become another favorite!

Emotional and brilliant performance!

Hi! I am Kacey Shea, the author of Derail. I'm so happy to bring this and the rest of my Off Track Records novels to audio. Jason Clarke has such range and his ability to create distinctive character voices and maintain them throughout blows me away. He takes on Sean's character with such heart and is the perfect compliment to the female POV chapters. Emma Wilder steals the show with her gutting performance. She portrayed Jess's vulnerability, brokenness, and in the end strength and growth. My heart was racing at the intensity of it all and I am so grateful she took on this project! If you love an emotional, gripping love story and outstanding narration, then I think you're going to enjoy this book.

Beautiful & Emotionally Moving

What an amazing book. This well written read has a beautiful, emotionally moving story line. The characters are complex and engaging. Jess is such an amazing character and her story is sure to break your heart. Sean is a genuinely great guy that will have you feeling super swoony. Together these two create a couple that is perfect for each other, impossible not to fall in love with and make you wish with your whole heart for a HEA for them. This book does deal with hard issues and sensitive subjects and as such, just as is the case in real life things are very rarely simply black or white, but many shades of gray. Sometimes painful, sometimes poignant, sometimes sweet and sometimes heart melting, one thing I know for sure, this is a book that will leave a permanent mark on your heart. This book offers dual narration and the narrators truly hit it out of the park with this one. I thought the voices were a perfect match for the characters and this just helped take this audio book to the next level.

LOVE

Kacey Shea pens another masterpiece brought to life with outstanding narration. I will admit. After Detour I knew Derail would be one a top favorite of the series. I am a sucker for forbidden love, white knights, and a girl that needs to be rescued, but finds a backbone along the way. This book checks all of the boxes. I have no words for the narration, Speechless. If I didn't think this book could get any better, just bring in two of my favorites to bring it to life. I was obsessed with this series when I read it, but listening to it brings on a whole new stalkerish level of obsessed. 10 hours and 40 mins of pure bliss.

3UG are at it again, heartwrenching tale of love

*ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review* I honestly don't even know where to begin with this book. I guess I'll start with the basics...this is the 2nd book in the Off the Track Records Series. While it is good to read the first book you don't have to in order to get into this book. The story is a standalone. Narration was amazing and brought each character's storyline to life. I could imagine the scenes playing out in front of me while listening. This storyline does have a HEA but it is hard to listen to at times. Jess and Sean's love story is not a quick one and I love that they have to work for it. Yes there were times that I wanted to throw my phone as I was frustrated but it made it all the better for their story in the end. The story was so well written and the character development was done so well. The reason's for Jess's struggles were so well discussed and her point of view explained. I loved that the author didn't shy away from the hard parts of the story and talked about them. They may be hard to talk about and listen to but they are very real and listening to them play out and Jess's emotions about them are heartbreaking and liberating at the same time. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for book 3 in the series!

🔥CREDIT WORTHY & THEN SOME!🔥

Kacey Shea continues to slay the rockstar romance trope with Derail. Captivating, achingly heartfelt, and completely passionate are just some of the things that make Sean and Jess’ story beyond fantastic and unmissable. As if that wasn’t enough you have the two all-star narrators beginning the story to life. Emma Wilder and Jason Clarke are exceptional as Jess and Sean. They bring every facet of these complex and flawed characters to life along with every single emotion. So much so that I felt right along with these characters. Credit worthy and then some! 5 stars.

Another amazing listen!

Another winner from Kacey Shea, made even better by the perfect narration of Jason and Emma! You know it’s good when you can’t help but make a face when a character’s name is spoken, let alone appear. Jason brings Sean to life with his deep voice that lends itself to Sean’s broodiness while Emma captures Jess’s personality with her voice alone. I can’t wait for the next Off Track Records book!

Woohoo...3UG y’all!!!

This book gives you the story of Three Ugly Guys bassist Sean Willis and how he falls for a woman who’s already taken. Jessica Moore has really low self esteem and puts up with her mostly verbally abusive bf, Coy. They moved from Denver to LA so that Coy can fulfill his dream of becoming the drummer for a band. Coy hits it big time by getting a temporary gig with 3UG while the drummer is in rehab. The chemistry between Sean and Jess is palpable from the moment they meet but she’s taken. I must admit that the verbal abuse was a bit difficult for me to read/listen to and I did have to take breaks. That said, this is a great story that addresses various types of abuse. Well written and narrated. Can’t wait for the next book! I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

Loved!

As much as I loved the first book in this series, I didn't think this one could possible surpass it. I was wrong. This one had some really heavy topics that I thought were handled very well by the author. I love this series and can't wait for more. Fantastic narration, as well!
