Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Autumn Jones Lake invites you to follow her back in time. All the way back to 1989...

A rock star on the rise.

I might have been born and raised in a motorcycle club, but until my father and MC prez calls me home, the guitar is my mistress, my band is my temporary family, and fame is my drug of choice. I wasn’t expecting Mallory. She provokes every one of my protective instincts. Anyone who tries to extinguish her spark will answer to my fists. Unfortunately, this is Hollywood where sleazeballs are crawling over each other to tarnish girls like Mallory.

An actress on the run.

With my father behind bars, I’m in control of my life for the first time. In search of stardom and a connection to my past, I escape across the country to the one place I can make my dreams come true. I wasn’t looking for love. Or even lust. But Chaser helps make me feel safe. And thanks to the dangerous secret I’m keeping, I need his protection even more than he knows. 

Off-the-charts chemistry.

Hollywood, fame, and love don’t always mix, but we were made for each other. We’ll defy the odds - and the people trying to tear us apart.

Kickstart My Heart is the first book in a brand new trilogy from USA Today best-selling author Autumn Jones Lake.

Chaser & Mallory, the beginning

The story met all my expectations and I look forward to the rest of the trilogy. Mallory won my heart and I swooned over Chaser. Masterful writing of a story which grabbed my attention and did not let go until the last word was uttered. I look forward to getting the book so I can enjoy it again when I read the words as I listen to this one again and again until the next one is released. This author has a way of writing exceptional characters we all wish we were or had in our lives. Where is a Chaser when you need one? The narration was perfection IMO.

Love Chaser & Mallory ♥️♥️♥️

The first time I read one of Autumn’s was book several years go. Her books are an automatic one click for me. Doesn’t matter what it is, I read it, I love it, I read it again several more times. Kisckstart My Heart is no exception!!! I absolutely LOVE Mallory and Chaser!!! (If you’ve read The Lost King’s MC, they both make appearances in several books.)

One thing that makes this trilogy unique, is it’s a biker/rockstar and Hollywood actress/Mafia Princess all in one! I’ve never read anything like it.

Chaser is dreamy and swoon worthy! They way he is with Mallory will make your ovaries explode!! He’s giving Rock a run for his money in competition for my new favorite book boyfriend 😉

Mallory is sheltered, but knows what she wants and doesn’t want out of life. She determined to make it on her own, but what if she doesn’t have to?

If you love Mc & rockstar romance, you need to read this!!

Samantha and Lance did an amazing job narrating!!

love

*audio version*
I avoided reading the newsletters AJL sent out with the beginning of Chaser and Mallory's story months ago. I had planned to wait until they were all released and read all at once, but was happy to hear it would be a trilogy and immediately pre-ordered it. When the audio released before the kindle version, I decided to listen instead of read...a decision well made! I instantly liked Chaser and Mallory and fell into their story and their dynamic. His bandmates in Kickstart were fun to meet and added a secondary entertainment layer to this new-ish fictional world. It had such a comfortable feel since I'm caught up/in love with the Lost Lings MC series. There were a few familiar faces, but decades before I'm used to seeing them. It was a fun surprise, but wouldn't cause any confusion if you weren't familiar. The steamy scenes were all that I wanted and expected from this author, in both quality and quantity. I'm a little shocked the ending wasn't as cliffy as I've seen previously, but I was already hooked and ready for the next installment. Kickstart My Heart made for a great series opener and I can't wait to see what else is in store.

Audio review
I liked both of the narrators and felt like they represented the characters well.

I am really curious to see where this goes

Chaser and Mallory have been long standing characters in the LOKI world and I am curious to know more about them. I think this is a great first step but I feel like this was a long teaser trailer. Will we know more?

First audio book for me

I’ve read Kickstart on kindle several times. This is my first foray into audio. Omg, I loved it. Hearing the characters is such a different and rich experience. I truly admire AJL. Her talent and stories. Getting to hear the story just made it all better.

Great Narration-Great story -Really Dumb Heroine

Greenfield and Brentmoor give an excellent performance. The storyline is great too. But I’m not not buying into how utterly dumb the heroine is. She’s a Russian mob princess who ran away to Hollywood to become an actress and acts likes a five year old
She has got to be the stupidest H I’ve read about in a long time. Her best friend is a paid escort who sleeps with her clients. Her dads in jail. Her boyfriend is a rock star from a MC family. Yet the author wrote her as if she’s been living on a farm in Pollyannaville. The heroine could have been portrayed as a loving, young woman with high morals and brains!
