Summary

Steve Frost had dreams of wearing the national championship belt in mixed martial arts, maybe even going pro, but instead finds himself working as a security guard for the rich and famous in LA.

Quickly earning a reputation for his blunt and precise people management skills, he lands a position on the security team for an up-and-coming boyband, Atrous. Years later, he’s head of security. He knows these boys, and with countless tours, flights, car trips, public events, and concerts, he’s closer to one band member in particular.

Jeremy’s been a pillar for Atrous since day one, but even more so these last few months. Now the face of the band more than ever, he’s also got himself the attention of a delusional stalker-fan.

When the fame and stress become too much, when Jeremy’s health takes a hit, Steve becomes Jeremy’s lifeline. But as Jeremy knows already, and as Steve is about to learn, not even the brightest star can shine forever.

Code blue, after Code red!

The second story in this series about people behind the headlines! The other side of the glamorous life of a rockstar. Who can you trust, who do you know and most of all who actually knows you? When you haven’t had a moment of normalcy since you were a young teenager, ten years ago.
NR Walker treats those characters with so much respect and the story feels accurate. And Nick J Russo performs it all to a T.

Omg!!! Great story

This is one of the best stories I have listened to in a long time. Awesomely written and Nick J Russo did a wonderful job bringing all of these men to life, giving each one a personality of their own. these men are so caring and giving. Brothers until the end. Get these books, they are so wonderful. well worth the credit and your time to listen.

Even better than Code Red

While Atrous are a typical boy band who sings and dances, members Maddox and Jeremy are also serious musicians on guitar and piano who write the songs they perform. During the latest album and tour, Maddox has taken a step back and Jeremy has taken more of the lead role in the band. When a stalker puts Jeremy’s safety at risk, security is increased. Steve, the Security Lead hiding some personal secrets, acts as Jeremy’s body guard and temporarily moves into his house. Jeremy, a straight guy working through recent feelings for Steve, is not too upset over the temporary changes. Jeremy and Steve are further brought together when Jeremy has some health emergencies. Will Jeremy open up about his feelings? Will he find out Steve’s hidden secrets?

This is the 4th book I’ve listened to from N.R. Walker and it’s my favorite. Probably because GFY was done so well with a slow burn. There were some logistical inconsistencies within the book, but the sweetness of the book overrode it. I loved the narrator’s distinct voices; playful Jeremy and professional Steve. For the best experience, listen to the first book, Code Red, first.

Great Read/Audible

I loved this book. It was such a good read. I was hooked from page one. It had a good amount of drama, lots of flirting, and pretty emotional. I loved book 1 but I felt a little better of a connection between Steve and Jeremy. These two characters stole my heart, Steve’s back story was so sad you can’t help but love him. And Jeremy’s personality was great. He definitely had me laughing more than a few times.

I loved the sense of family between all the characters and how it continued throughout both books. Great read / audible. I will definitely be relistening to these books.

enjoyed it

📖 Story comment: Good pace, likeable characters, nice flow, relatively low drama and more story than sex (which I prefer) - I liked the way the relationship developed and Jeremy grew in confidence and found himself. Was perfect for a lazy Sunday listen.

🎧 Narrator comment: I enjoy Nick Russo as a narrator, he suits the characters, has good timing, inflections and intonations and it's easy to distinguish the characters from each other. Overall an enjoyable performance.

Better than code red

Code red was good. It was a bit predictable and not very complex. This one has much more plot twists and is an interesting fun read.
