I really wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book. At the start it seemed to lack focus and direction but then "bam" Adam exploded into something special and I was hooked.

I guess the school age start to the story had me questioning the story's validity. For the age group, the storyline seemed too mature but as the characters grew up so did the story and it wasn't long before I knew that I was going to read the book non-stop until its conclusion.

But talk about a story with emotional upheaval. This story almost wrung me out with the amount of highs and lows that Adam and Ellie faced. Every time they were heading for a HEA, their world dropped out again and we were back to square one! Queue angst overload.

I'm unsure whether Dax is for me so I'm not going to dive straight into book 2 but you never know, my curiosity may yet get the better of me.

I picked Incite up as it’s a rock star romance and I enjoyed Heather C. Leigh’s Famous series so it seemed like a win for me. After all the things that Adam had done in the famous series I wasn’t quite sure how he was going to come across in Incite but it made you understand why Adam has acted the way he did and where he came from in the beginning. Adam and Ellie are from completely different backgrounds but when her dad loses his job the pair are suddenly thrown together and discover that maybe they could find something real with each other. Every time the pair find themselves happy another tragedy tears them apart. Adam is determined to keep Ellie with him always and protect her but when Adam has to leave to go to L.A. Ellie feels that she can’t leave London to go to L.A even if it breaks her heart not to be with Adam.

I enjoyed the story and I liked how it made you rethink Adams character from how he is in the famous series. Adam and Ellie’s love is definitely unbreakable I just wished that Ellie hadn’t left Adam hanging so many times on what was going on and what she was going to do, she shut him out so many times when he would of helped her take care of things.

HASH(0x9f41c1ec) out of 5 stars A MUST READ!!!!! 21 May 2015
By Bloggers From Down Under - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**arc received for honest review**

How do you go from living in a nice house, beautiful area, great school to all of a sudden losing what you had after your dad loses his job, moving into a dangerous horrible area, new school, no friends and start again? This is what Ellie had to do when things got bad. Her parents found new jobs and were just making it work so that’s what Ellie did to, try to make it work.

How do you ever become something from the child hood you have? A brother that is one of the biggest drug dealers in town and doesn’t give a s*&^ about you. A mother that is a crack whore, a father that shows up every now and again to beat you to a pulp along with your mother and then takes off again.

This is what Adam’s life is like.

Until Ellie and Adams world collide in a bad way.

Adam saves Ellie along with his best mate Dax from being attacked by the notorious Callum.

Adam follows Ellie home for weeks just to make sure she gets there safely until he comes up with a plan to make sure Ellie is safe, little does he realize he puts his own life on the line. He doesn’t care, there is something about Ellie that his hooked on even though it’s not his style, Liam Isn’t a 1 women man his a player and never sleeps with the same girls twice.

Ellie and Adam fall hard for each other they love hanging out together and they make plans to move to LA for Adam’s music career and for Ellie to start collage. Adam leaves and Ellie is to follow 6 weeks later but never does……

Ellie’s dad gets killed suddenly and Ellie can’t leave her mum so she lets Adam go she lets the one person she truly loves go, he soul mate her best friend cause she knows he would come back if she told him the truth.

Adam is heartbroken he can’t work out what happened he loves Ellie.

Adam turns to alcohol and sex, everyone he sleeps with he thinks its Ellie that’s how he deals.

Ellie focuses on her career and finishing school to become a nurse she is floating through life and her engagement until she makes her trip to the US to see Adam.

Can true love bring them together?

Is Adam too far gone?

We love love loved this book we love Ellie and Adams story it sort of reminded us of the sliding doors movie you know where if you just had of done 1 thing different your whole outcome on life would have changed instead of the road you actually took???

Thank you so much Heather for taking us yet again on a beautiful journey, it goes to show no matter where your from what you have you can always concur ur dreams!!

HASH(0x9f3eaed0) out of 5 stars Incite (Sphere of Irony, #1) by Heather Leigh 14 Dec. 2014
By Diane Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ellie Palmer transfers to a new school in a dangerous neighborhood of London. She is attacked and rescued by classmate Adam Reynolds. Ellie and Adam form an intense bond and love for one another. Unfortunately, fate has other plans and numerous obstacles for the two of them to endure.

Incite is a captivating story that pulled at my heart strings.

Ellie is a sweet heroine. She has wonderful parents. When she lets people in, they instantly like her. She is selfless and easy to love. She is a good person that has a lot of bad luck and puts others before herself.

My heart went out to Adam. He is a fantastic hero who has had a rough life. Fortunately, he has good friends in his band mates, specifically Dax. I like that he wants to be a better person then his family members, especially his father. However, he is human and has numerous struggles that make his character believable and likeable.

Adam and Ellie never seem to get a break, and my heart utterly went out to them. This heartwarming story is incredibly well-written and thought provoking. I just love Adam and Ellie together, and it killed me when they are apart.

This is the first book I have read be Heather Leigh, and I am so glad that I read it! She has a wonderful writing style that had me completely engaged. I could not put Incite down. I will definitely want to continue reading this series.

HASH(0x9f4070d8) out of 5 stars A bit of a different rockstar romance 26 July 2015
By A T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I picked this book up a while ago as I'm a big fan of rock romances. This book turned out to be pretty different than what I anticipated, but good nonetheless. The story follows a couple over a 10 year period that seems fated to endure heartbreak. It's pretty heavy in comparison to most in this genre- loads of emotional turmoil and crappy situations. Through it all, you can't help but pull for the couple. I did think some of the roadblocks were excessive, especially toward the end. However, I gathered this is a spin off series, and I think those moments were necessary to weave in the characters from the other series. The main characters weren't the most vibrant or lovable, but they were written well and I enjoyed them. I did like the band's camaraderie, though it felt more distant than I wanted. The book really focused only on the couple and glazed over places I wanted more insight. I thought the narration was solidly done, especially moving along such a massive timeline. I wished the timeline was a little less erratic, because I'd lose track, but it generally didn't impact the story like I've experienced in other books. I'm not immediately downloading the next in the series, but I'm putting it on my want to read list, so I'll eventually get to it. If you like angst and characters working themselves out of rough beginnings, I think this book is a safe bet.
HASH(0x9f3eadd4) out of 5 stars Amazing narrators! 28 April 2016
By Ana's Attic - Published on Amazon.com
I have been wanting to read a book by Heather C. Leigh for over a year, and just kept getting sidetracked. But when I saw she had one on audio, I jumped at the chance to read Incite! I will usually never start an author with a spin off of a series I never read, but in this case it's the only audiobook, so I assumed it must stand alone well, and I was correct. I would have never known it was related to any other stories.

First of all, I need to preface this review by GUSHING about the narrators. They did the English accents brilliantly--hers being from an upscale area of England and his from the East End. I usually don't really like accents in my narrators, but in this case....wow. They were phenomenal. The male narrator even did American accents well!

Ellie Palmer grew up fairly well off. But when her father lost his job and her mother got ill, her family was forced to move to to one of the poorest areas in London. Though Ellie met Adam the first day of school, he basically blew her off. But he was secretly keeping an eye on her. He knew she was too beautiful to not get herself in trouble in these parts. Thank goodness for his diligence, because he and his best friend Dax were able to stop Ellie from getting raped on the way home from school one day. After that, Ellie and Adam became great friends, and they were practically inseparable. The connection was real and vivid. Adam was no virgin. He was well known in his high school for his skills in the bedroom, but he had a no repeats rule. But with Ellie, Adam was a total gentleman...for a long time.

“Having Ellie near me is like the sweetest pleasure wrapped around the worst torture I can think of. Every thought I have consists of me touching her, kissing her, and God help me, having her naked beneath me.”

Adam and Dax have always been in a band together, but the band began to get some gigs and find success. They were offered a deal to head to the US to tour right after high school but after a little trouble cropped up, they had to get out of London sooner than expected. Ellie had plans to go to college in California. So not only would she be with her boyfriend, her best friend from her old town was there as well. Despite having to be apart for a torturous few weeks while Adam waited in the states for Ellie, Adam was counting the moments until they reunited. Living every moment waiting for her rare calls. But then tragedy struck. And plans changed.

"Ellie lied to me because she knew I would come home to be with her. She selflessly gave me up so I could have everything, when the truth is, now I have nothing".

This couple was nothing without each other. Neither was able to move on. Adam drowned himself in booze and women, but nobody was a substitute for his Ellie.

The story was told over a span of about a dozen years. There were a number of time-hopping spots that confused me sometimes, but I caught on. A few times I had to remind myself that some of this is the past where cell phones weren't attached to everyone's bodies, especially not poor people.

The narration really brought the story and characters to life for me. It was one of my favorite audiobook narrations to date, and I honestly think I liked the story even more because of it.

Likes:
•Loved the narrators.
•You can feel the connection between the couple.
•There was no instalove. They really worked up to the relationship, which I loved because they started so young.
•His respect for her despite his manwhoring past.
•Vivid descriptions of the settings.
•Even though it's a spin-off, I never felt I missed something.

Dislikes:
•The time jumping and flashbacks sometimes got confusing. I think at one point there was even a flashback in a flashback.
•The couple was apart a little too much. So many missed opportunities!

The Down & Dirty:
Incite was an epic story spanning about a dozen years. It was filled with angst, so it's perfect for all of you angst lovers. There was never a doubt the the two were each their best when they were together. Ellie was a strong character. Adam, despite acting alpha, was't the strong one, she was, but I don't necessarily agree with her decisions. There were some frustrating timeline issues jumping from past to present, but nothing too bad. For me though, the thing that made this audiobook so good was the narrators. I often find the narrators ruin a book for me, but in this case, I think they made me love it.
Rating: 4.25-4.5 stars, 3.5 heat, 5 narration
HASH(0xa18b0474) out of 5 stars Good rockstar romance, fantastic audiobook narration 14 Dec. 2015
By Petra - Published on Amazon.com

Incite is book one of the four-part Sphere of Irony series, a spin-off of Heather C. Leigh’s Famous series. I hadn’t read any of the previous books by this author, but Incite worked well as a stand alone. It is a rock star romance, which follows the story of Adam and Ellie over a period of ten to fifteen years. They meet in their last year at school when classy, posh Ellie has to move to the East End of London after her father becomes unemployed. Adam is a street-smart kid who grew up in this drug and crime ridden area with a violent father, an addict mother and a drug dealing brother. Together with his mate Dax, he plays guitar and writes songs hoping to escape his deprived surroundings. Adam and Dax save Ellie from being assaulted and over time, a sweet romance builds up between Ellie and Adam. But every time when you think there is finally something positive coming their way, another obstacle is thrown in their way. They end up spending a lot of time apart with Adam pursuing his music career in the US and Ellie trying to cope with problems in the UK.
The plot started out really strong, and I was loving it. But then a few things started to irritate me a bit. The main thing being the overly long timeline, which started to jump around with several flashbacks. Following an “incident”, the story would suddenly jump forward a few months/years, but then flashback to include additional information. It felt disjointed and could have been done more smoothly. The other thing that I couldn’t quite buy into was the premise that in this day and age it was so difficult for two people to keep in touch or keep track of each other. However, if you can forget about those things, then you have an emotional love story with all the usual ingredients, some interesting side characters and sharp dialogue.

What made this book more special for me though was the audiobook narration. Henrietta Meire with her clear voice and very proper English accent was absolutely perfect for the character of Ellie and really brought her to life in the way the author portrayed her in the book. Adam Croasdell, probably better known for his TV appearances, did a great job impersonating Adam’s and Dax’s East London accents and switching back and forth to do the two American accents of the other two band mates. Both narrators had great pacing, intonation and expressed emotions believably and appropriately. Great listening.

A very good read/listen for fans of New Adult contemporary romances, especially if you like troubled musicians. Includes some sex and a few swear words.
