Publisher's Summary

Gabe Mercer.

Singer. Rock star. Broken.

He was my everything, my childhood love.

But he lied to me, kept secrets, and broke my trust. 

So I walked away and took control of my life.

I thought I was happy without him - I was happy without him.

But then he crashed back into my orbit, and his pull is just as strong as ever.

Only this time, he’s made it clear we’re done and he wants nothing to do with me.

Harper Jackson.

Frosty. Unimpressed. Confident.

She was my always and forever. 

Until she decided she was done. 

It turns out my love wasn’t enough. I wasn’t enough. 

And she turned her back on us and walked away.

She took my heart with her, and now only the self-destructive rock star remains.

But one small accident puts us back on a collision course, and I’m not sure I will survive the crash.

Broken Halo

This is the fifth and final book in the Forgotten Legacy series. This was the perfect ending to this series. This series started with Gabe and Harper and end with them. This series is not for the faint of heart. This series is full of emotions. Each book ends with a HFN for the couples. Thomas Locklear is absolutely phenomenal narrating all Therese characters!

Holy shidoodles!

I had read the book previously and was super duper excited for the audio. I think I set my debit card on fire a bit the moment I realized it was live! Once again, Thomas blew me away with his ability to literally bring Gabe and Harper to life. This is such an emotional coaster of a story, and having that extra layer of complexity with the narration just made it even better.

I've loved Gabe and Harper since the beginning, they have such a unique relationship. There were times throughout the whole series when I wanted to just scream at them! in this book, I felt that even more. I felt every emotion they had, through every up and down it seriously got my heart.

I felt like in this book, we REALLY see both characters stripped down to who they are deep inside. It's such a beautiful story. I hated to see it end though!

Fair warning, be prepared to lose all awareness to your surroundings. Perhaps, don't be driving and forget where you're going because you're so enthralled with listening. I blame Thomas. It's all his fault that I missed several turns!

Overall, the best audiobook of the entire series. Both because of the story and the narration!

I 😍😍😍 this one soo much!!

OMG this book/series! This one though, really put me through the ringer! Darn you L. Ann! I went from loving to hating Gabe multiple times and once even landed those feelings on Harper. Arg! I was so frustrated with each of them but then the magic started happening..and I was a happy camper once again.

This one gave us a full cast meaning that all the previous characters have come out to play. Boy did I LOVE seeing them! Thomas Locklear did an excellent job with each voicing them all. I did catch a few slips but overall he rocked it! I loved how he kept the same voices all through the series so each character is identifiable when speaking.

Overall all I did love coming back to these characters. They have gone through so much I really just want their happiness….YES I am invested in them all! This author did an amazing job creating them and I am sorry to see them go. Thomas Locklear…this series is some of your best work!

Sad the series is over…. For now…

The way the book ended “the end….. for now” kind of makes me happy. The storyline was great but the talent that Thomas brought to the series made it SOOO good to listen to. I prefer to listen to books he narrates at 1.5 speed… just works better with his voice I think, but I now finish the books super fast it seems and I’m ready for more! I’ll be excited when, if, L. Ann adds to the series at a later time. 💕

dark, intense

I listened to Tattooed Memories again before starting Broken Halo. Gabe's and Harper's story was the first book and ended in the last book. I wanted to relive their love and tormented history.
Gabe and Harper together are fire and ice. She knows his tortured past. He's strong, dominate, but underneath he is vulnerable. He is a grown man who wants to be loved.
In Broken Halo, their downward spiral began when Harper received devastating news that put her in a deep depression. That tore them apart again. Gabe feels loss, abandonment when she's gone. He lost his other half.
L Ann Forgotten Legacy is a rockers story about loss, depression, drug and alcohol abuse, verbal and physical abuse. Touching on the bands weaknesses, strengths and their total loyalty to each other no matter what mess each one is in. The hot steamy sex and their girls that support them makes this is an outstanding series that drew me in from the very beginning.
As usual, Thomas Locklear's narration is exemplary. How one man can effortlessly be all the characters and give each one their own voice and personality is extraordinary. Thank you for bringing this story to life. I know whenever Thomas Locklear is narrating a story, it will be an exciting experience. Well done! 👏👏 I was gifted this audio and my this is my honest review.

Toe curling romance

I loved the book, but I’m in awe of the audio book!

The words written are fantastic. The story and character development is so well thought through and believable. You fall more in love with Gabe in this book—if that’s even possible—and don’t get me started on angry Seth (so hot).

But what sets this book apart is the glorious narration by Thomas Locklear. The depth and emotion that he conveyed in every single character is spectacular. OMG—not to mention the steamy scenes which literally had my toes curling and squirming in my seat. This is the best audio book I have ever listened to.

You need to own this, experience the world of Forgotten Legacy, and fall in love with four amazing rock stars.

This series was amazing, from one band member to the next the story line was different but it all flowed together. Can wait for the next book you write. Thank you for sharing L Ann.
And once again Thomas done a wonderful job.

Brilliantly written with Outstanding Narration

Forgotten Legacy is one of my favourite Rock Star romance series; the characters and the challenges they face are authentic, realistic, easy to relate to, and sympathize with. The series is totally addictive and captivating with outstanding narration.

Broken Halo, the fifth book in the Forgotten Legacy series, is wonderfully written, taking some time after the previous instalment, Exquisite Scars. Once again, the character development is spot on, and Mercer and Harper Jackson had multilayered, dynamic, and realistic personalities with genuine emotional depth. I absolutely adored them. Their story was riveting, moving, humorous, searing hot, wrapped in drama, heartbreaking revelations, and growth. The chemistry was absolutely off-the-charts. Gabe and Harper's connection was deep, passionate, fiery, and charged with mutual desire.

Thomas Locklear's performance was spot-on. He is a gifted voice artist, embodying the characters, capturing their diverse personalities and emotions, and portraying them flawlessly. I could easily picture the scenes, the feelings, and the reactions on the characters' faces. He definitely breathed life into every word of the story and made it even more engaging. Forgotten Broken Halo is a terrific addition to the Forgotten Legacy series. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this audiobook, and one I'll highly recommend.

culmination of an epic series

Gabe and Harpers story continues in the fith Forgotten Legacy book. With Gabe feeling broken without Harper while all around him are happily paired up. There is only one way Gabe is going to cope.

I think this is probably my favourite book in the series with all the guys playing their part. The narration is brilliant and the story just gets better.

highly recommended

Amazing

Gabe and Harper are the ultimate band couple. However, there comes a time, when a select few couples need to take a break from drama and, in their car, the headlines. They just really needed to figure out who they were without the other one in their life. They had been together for so long they don't really know who they are without the other one around. After two years of being apart, Harper trying to make something of herself while was Gabe turning into a drunk. Then, while out on tour, his drunken stupor turns into a mishap with him running into her. His emotions land on anger and that's how he treats her, but of course, it's all about communication. They truly won't say how they feel or what they want and end up doing a dance of regretful things. Can they figure it out in time before they hurt the other one too much and you can't go back? Then Have gets hurt during a performance right before an interview.... does he survive in order to patch things up with Harper as she watches the devastation? Will she be able to tell him how she truly feels about him? I don't reveal anything, you will have to listen or read to find out.

As always this narrator is amazing and helps in the panty dropping department when it comes to the hot and steamy scenes. I look forward to his work every time.

Amazing Rockstar Romance Series

Broken Halo, Forgotten Legacy book 5 by L. Ann narration by Thomas Locklear

So damn excited for this finale

Gage and Harper have been on my mind this whole series. It started with them and should end with them. Especially since it’s all not settled for them. L. Ann weaves a heartfelt story again. We get more insight into Gabe’s extremely difficult life with his abusive father and how it forms Gabe’s perception of his self and it’s amazing he’s the lead singer of a rock band after all he endured. So unbelievably happy that Gabe and Harper find their way back to each other. Love this band and their mates. Seth really supported Gabe and we all need a friend like him in our lives.

Thomas is amazing again. This series was made for this talented voice actor. He seamlessly changed characters and emotions with an ease that still leaves me thinking 'there is no way all of these characters are done by one narrator ‘

L. Ann, this was an amazing series. Not sure if it’s done or if one day you will carry it on but I loved slipping into your rockstar world. And thank you for having Thomas perform these amazing audiobooks!

I am addicted !

This book was Everything and more.
I cannot get enough of this series and I never want it to end.
Broken Halo is book 5 and I was nervous listening to it because I knew that Harper and Gabe were no longer together.
So this story is a journey of them working through their issues in order to try to reconcile.
It is perfection,I loved every minute of it...
It made laugh and cry..I was stressed out and then smiling because I was so happy,all my emotions were on display.
Thomas Lockclear has gained Top Narrator status for me is is just pure Excellence,I cannot fault his performance throughout this book.
Absolutely Outstanding !!
L.Ann has become one of my favourite authors whilst listening to this series and I only hope she continues to write more stories about this Rockstar world.
Fantastic !!

it blew me away

not just the book was great, but he whole series was absolutely stunning. I LOVED everything about it. every single character, the story line, the writing style..and last but not least the narration. I was already familiar with thomas locklear and his many talents, but he was born to be Gabe. there couldn't have been a better choice. not only he manages to narrate a whole series with different tones for the numerous characters, he does it so effortlessly that it sounds like a dual narration. creepy, but absolutely perfect. 5 stars out of 5, just because I cannot give it 20.

The Conclusion - I need MORE THAN FIVE STARS

This book is more than another book about Gabe and Harper it's the conclusion to the best contemporary romance series I have ever read, a series with so much heart and so much loss, so many struggles but thankfully so many highs. I adored the proceeding four books, getting to know all four of the guys who make up Forgotten Legacy as well as their lovely ladies. Each book was about a different couple finding their perfect partner but I was left open-mouthed with shock at the end of Exquisit Scars (book 4) eagerly waiting to see where this talented author was going to take us.

This book in my opinion is one you should read or listen to after the earlier books to fully understand all aspects of Gabe and Harper's story, to know where they are coming from and fully understand how they got to be where they are now - both desperately in love with the other and yet somehow broken and apart!

It's not possible for me to tell you more about this book without spoiling your enjoyment so I won't, what I will say is make sure you have time and space to immerse yourself in the wonderful writing of L Ann and the beyond excellent narration by Thomas Locklear because this book, the whole series in fact deserves to be savoured. Thank you both of you for your collaboration on my favourite romantic, dramatic, moving and addictive series ever!

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.
