#ThrowBack #Review #GirlRockers #Rockers #CompleteSeries – Vagabonds by Jade C. Jamison

The Vagabonds Trilogy: The Complete Series (Rockstar Romance Box Set) by [Jamison, Jade C.]

You know me as rock goddess Kyle Summers. But you don’t know me. Not really.

For instance, you probably don’t know that playing the guitar is all I ever wanted to do with my life. And I’m sure you don’t know that I used to be boy crazy.

Till him. Till I met rock star CJ Slavin. I knew from the moment I met him that he completes me, that we belong together…that, in his shadow, no other man will ever do.

So why have we never been able to make it work? Why can we never fully commit to one another?

Can we find a way to be together or am I destined to be alone?

What reviewers have said about the trilogy:

“This author does it right. She doesn’t just throw the rockstar title around. Nope, she gives her readers what they crave. You can go in knowing you’re gonna get the whole experience. The music that flows through the veins of the born-to-rock characters. The song lyrics that speak to you because you recognize the emotion they were written with. The passion of a music lover that flows through the pages of your kindle and reaches you as the story unfolds. The excitement of being there when the magic happens.” Rosa Sharon, iScream Books

“It was with the release of this series that Jade was dubbed ‘the Queen of Rock Romance,’ and there is no mistaking that it is a title that fits.” MaryLou, PagePrincess

“Omg the Queen of Rock truly outdid herself with this book.” Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Blog

“Wow…and YES!!! If the Nicki Sosebee series and the Bullet boys had a baby, I think this would be the result. I have always been a huge fan of Jamison’s work, whether she wrote about a naughty, sexy reporter and her bedroom antics or about a hot young rock band with a lot of angst and serious problems.” Sue Banner

Goodreads

On the Run, Book 1 –

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

AHHHH This book is amazing. Ok yeah I know you won’t just one-click it based off that statement but trust me it’s a great read. One of the things I love about this books is the angst and the Young Adult feel of it…trust me it’s not a YA novel but the books starts with the girls in high school, dealing with the drama and life of being a teen. Kyle is a bit of an outsider but after a school talent show she gets some attention from high school jock Decker. Now Decker is a good guy BUT he is not THE ONE. He is the typical jock who wants his woman to be in the stands when he plays ball. However, Kyle has dreams to be a rocker and that means not sitting in the stands watching her boyfriend. Kyle gets a once in a lifetime chance to be in a band and she jumps. We meet the girls and either love them (Vicki) or hate them (Barbie). We get to meet the producer and do not like him at all but he does what needs to be done to get these girls ready.
Seige/CJ/Chuck..holy hotness…yes ladies he is “the one” for our Kyle. He makes butter melt what it’s in the freezer with his seduction. We see stubborn Kyle not happy that she can’t have him but we are so excited to see what is in store for them in one more summer….eeep…..

Ky’s life is shaped by her up growing. Her parents are hippies but suddenly grow roots for her. Their happy go lucky family life is destroyed by one parents action and then by the other ones rebound actions. This heart break will shape our young character and force her to harden her heart allowing her to make assumptions when she shouldn’t. Her parents dysfunctional relationship will be a bad role modeling that Ky will assume all relationships will be like especially after everything with Decker and even Seige.

The books doesn’t leave us with a cliff hanger but definitely a need to read book 2 when it releases as the girl just released a single and are beginning a tour!!! Their dreams are just starting to be realized and their journey is just starting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the Road, Book 2-

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This book is a bit “darker” then our last book. The girls are growing up on the road. They are experiencing all the “fun” that rockers get to partake in while on tour….sex, drugs and rock and roll. The beginning of the book is bit slower initially. We are in Kyle’s head while she is dealing with the first tour issues, Vicki’s drug addiction, Creepy management, Barbie’s mouth, Her “non-relationship” with CJ and much more. When Kyle gets her first break she is happy to be home. After a convo with CJ she decides if she can’t be with the one she wants, she will love the one she’s with. The girls all begin to spiral a bit more and more outta control….Sex, drugs and Rock n Roll is actually causing more and more troubles for our girls.

When the tour ends and we get to meet up with CJ for her birthday celebration, YUM!!! But as usual CJ and his truthful nature leaves us and Kyle feeling broken. The girls begin a second and third tour this book. The whole time they are falling more and more apart. We are seeing the disagreements and discord between the ladies. We are also seeing more and more from CJ and falling more and more in love with him but gets more broken hearted over his truthful nature with us.

The end of the book we are pretty much feeling exactly like Kyle is about the band. After a talk with our best friend CJ, Kyle decide that maybe his advice is what we should follow. The end of the book leaves us all on pins and needles. I can’t wait to see what happens. My heart was broken over Kyle and Liz’s friendship. I loved her and felt she was a great person for Kyle to bounce ideas off of.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the Rocks, Book 3 –

I receive this book from the amazingly talented author for an honest review.

O.M.G. Hands down my favorite of the series. This book is everything you want and expect from Jade. There is turmoil, twists, sex, drama, and love!! The love is an Epic, soul shattering love that stands the test of time and situations for our two characters….Kyle and CJ.

This series has given me A LOT of twists and turns not to mention upset belly aches but this book beats them all hands down. I mean GAPS when Kyle………SPOILER…………………right…can you believe it? HAHA yeah so not gonna tell ya what Kyle does SEVERAL times to push CJ away because apparently the two of them don’t know what the word communication means!!!

This book we see our Kyle grown and mature in her music but her love life is still a HOT mess. She goes on tour with Jet and his band which throws her life into a tail spin of craziness. She has to deal with the fall out of the decisions she makes while wondering about CJ and her. She is dealing with the green eyed monster of jealousy from Liz’s rise to fame plus dealing with moving forward while leaving others behind.

This book our girl really sprouts and finds herself but also loses herself when it comes to CJ. The love that WE the readers see but they can’t see made me wanna throat punch them both SEVERAL times. I will say that there was a scene where I actually SWOONED over CJ like hard core. All I gotta say is when a drunk man walks miles to get to you…Sigh…..you better listen and listen up good!!!?

This book sets up soo nicely for the next installment of the Feverish series. All I gotta say is DIBS ON BRIAN!!!! Right Jade? Please? Just don’t tell Daddy Brad.

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging than Dirty Dancing, she–like Baby–won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance–and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

BULLET (Book 1)
An Epic Rock Star Novel

What if you discover the man you want is toxic?

She tasted a little bit of heaven with him, and now they’ve gone through hell and back, but can their relationship take anymore?

Valerie Quinn is a naïve college freshman when she meets on-the-rise rock star Ethan Richards. He’s an idealistic, handsome, reckless young man, but he’s captured her heart. She doesn’t give up on him and eventually his walls crumble down. By the time Valerie has given herself to him completely, she discovers he’s damaged and may be beyond help. Can she save Ethan and their relationship before he implodes, or will he self-destruct and take her with him?

CAUTION! SPOILERS follow in the remaining book descriptions!!!

ROCK BOTTOM (Book 2)
Rock star Ethan Richards has fought depression and a host of other demons all his adult life, and it’s caused him to lose everything–his wife, his son, his friends, and he almost loses the one thing that means the most to him–his band. He hits rock bottom and believes there is no way out.

Enter Jenna McCormick, a feisty drug and alcohol counselor, a woman with her own share of troubles. She finds Ethan intriguing but keeps him at a distance while trying to help him face life without crutches. She feels a spark but denies it, knowing that a relationship with unstable Ethan could be dangerous for both of them.

Ethan knows what he wants, though, and isn’t used to being told no. Jenna isn’t willing to risk Ethan losing his tenuous grip on sobriety, however, and is prepared to deny her deeper feelings to help Ethan climb out of his hole, but he learns how to let go of his pain when he finds that someone is prepared to walk with him through the shadows. Can he convince Jenna that they should take a chance on love or will they forever deny their feelings in an effort to keep Ethan on the straight and narrow?

FEVERISH (Book 3)
…To be loved by the good guy
…To be f**ked by the bad boy
He’ll make you FEVERISH either way…

Clayton “Jet” Smith has enjoyed acting the part of rock star god / incorrigible bad boy since his breakup with rock goddess Valerie Quinn. He’s racking up quite a score playing the field, and he has no plans to settle down anytime soon. His biggest problem these days is meeting his obligations. He’s so busy having fun, he forgets the important things.

To help him out, he hires recent graduate Emily Brinkman to be his personal assistant, and he quickly finds a fire burning in his belly for her. There are two problems, however. The first is that Emily is engaged to be married, a fact that leaves Jet unfazed. The second problem isn’t so easy to surmount, though: Emily is disgusted and unimpressed by both sides of the man.

Will Clay find a way to persuade Emily to try him out, not just for one night, but for all time?

angies review

Bullet, Book 1 Review –

I received this book for an honest review from the author and honest you shall get!!!

I am sitting here at my computer sobbing, literally sobbing over this book. I went through a box of tissues and a packet of tums. IN-FREAKING-TENSE was this book.

I am a fan of really emotional, gut wrenching, tear your heart out and stomp on it while it lays on the floor kinda books!! This book sooooooo qualifies.

Val is such an amazing person who is so giving and loving but seems to be stuck in the ever emotional toxic love of Ethan. Ethan is just a true measure of addiction and doesn’t appreciate Val for all she is worth. His idea of “chasing her” is screwing everything else that has a skirt on or getting so high he cant even function. This is pretty much their relationship but the addiction continues to get worse and worse as does his behavior and attitude toward her. I think the author did a great job showing the true relationship of a couple when addiction is involved. It is heart wrenching that Ethan has had emotional and physically abusive relationships but he is so self involved he has no idea he is doing the same thing to Val.

There were a few scenes where I broke for Val when she was confronted by Ethan’s wondering ways. I feared for her because she knows in her heart he is not a “good person” but the party scene absolutely crushed me along with her. I think, like Val, i wanted him to have some redeeming qualities…..but the party killed me. I broke for her and me at that point. Then I broke for the man I wanted to see Val with. The man who loved her, supported and cared for her even though she was stuck in this web of Ethan lies and betrayal.

Well along the way Val does develop some emotionally sustaining and loving relationships. SOME of the “relationships” I was like “you go girl!!” I loved the men who helped her through tough times with Ethan. However no matter what, she would always return to Ethan. This dance goes on for a few years.

I am not going to talk specifics because I will totally end up giving away the whole story BUT if you love rocker books and you love emotionally raw “real” books then this is the book for you. seriously. i cannot wait to read the books for the other band members!!!!

about the author

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Rocked (A Reverse Harem Novel)
By Theresa Hissong

My name is Bristol Mateo, and I am the tour manager for the #1 rock band, Cycle of Sin. It takes a lot to keep a band of five rockstars on schedule, but I’ve been doing it for just over two years now.

As a new tour begins, I find myself confused over what happened after a night of partying between shows. The kiss from each of them is laced with enough power to destroy me, and my mind is riddled with guilt over the things I feel for them individually.

Dean, Evan, Hunter, Sebastian, and Austin heat my body in ways that are deemed immoral. As we tour across the world, I find myself falling for each of them equally. When they vow their hearts to me as one, I realize I am meant to be loved by them all.

I belong to Cycle of Sin, and Cycle of Sin belongs to me.

Coming in July!

#Review #Rockers Fatal Temptations (Fatal Cross Live! Book 2) by Theresa Hissong

My life has meaning again. I’m clean and sober, no longer relying on the poison to keep me going night after night as I perform for thousands. I have everything that I’d dreamed about for years; an amazing band, number one songs, money, and great friends. But there was one thing missing…a woman to call my own.

Presley Pittman is the lead singer for Witch’s Spawn and the opening band on our current tour. I find myself intrigued by the beautiful woman and whatever it is that haunts her. There is something mysterious about her that I can’t put my finger on. It isn’t until I notice a scar on her lip that I ask her about her past. I don’t think I could have ever prepared myself for the pain of her confessions.

She has to grow to be able to live and I’m thankful that she lets me be the man to walk beside her on the road to finding herself. When a possible setback in my own life threatens to restore my demons, I have to make the decision to stay strong so that I can be the man that Presley needs, because her own demons aren’t too far behind…threatening to destroy everything she’s ever known about her past.

 

What can I say about Ace and Presley? They are AWESOME! Presley has dealt with a lot of crap in her life and Ace has himself where he wants to be, clean and sober. Seeing his band Mate Taylor find love shows that that it can happen. Ace has been drawn to Presley since she and her band started the tour with them.
Presley has major trust issues outside of her band mates, which is totally understandable, but there is something about Ace that makes her want to add him to her trust circle and be with him.
The way these two connect is awesome, she has become the only addiction that he needs and he has become her rock, her safe port in the storm.
I love when Hissong writes any of her rocker books, she has a way of making you feel like you are there on the road with them.
I can’t wait to read more of the band!!

#Review #Rockers Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! Book 1) by Theresa Hissong

For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.
One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.
When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

Cora Maddox is tour manager and roadie extraordinaire for her cousin’s band Glory Days and has been since she was a kid.
She is tiny but mighty and no one knows how to get shit done for a band better than her. Her only problem now is Taylor Vaughn, guitarist for Fatal Cross Live. The little island fling they had while she was on vacation showed her how much she really liked him, but when she tried to contact him for months afterwards he wouldn’t take or return her calls and that showed her that he really was just looking for someone to warm his bed.
Taylor Vaughn, didn’t have a rough childhood his problems started when he and his band fell face first into the sex, drugs, and rock and roll life style. Yes, he was a man whore but something about little Coraline Maddox set him on fire. He knows he screwed the pooch when he never returned her calls but he had to get clean, be better so that when he next came to her he could beg his forgiveness and he could be the man she needed.
Now that they have to be together, because he’s filling in for Glory Day’s guitarist, she doesn’t know how she is going to face him but she knows that she isn’t going to let him know how bad he hurt her.
Man, Hissong is great at writing a rock story she really makes you feel like you are there. How she wrote about Taylor’s addiction problems and how he struggled to get clean and stay clean was awesome.
You can tell that Cora and Taylor feel for each other, even after the shit that they’ve been through. When they need each other the most though will they be able to stand strong or will they crash and burn? I’ll never tell!!!! Lol!!!
Check out Taylor, Cora, and the rest of the Fatal Desire crew to find out.

#Review – Down in Flames (Silver Tongued Devils, #1)

34628762

Just when you think you have your life together, a spark ignites with the potential to take everything down in flames.
Kristen Daniels worked hard for her career, and when her dream job came to fruition, a sexy rock star won her heart. But one night changed everything, shattering the perfect life she thought she had, and she begins to doubt everything.
Brett Ingles is on top of the world. His band, the Silver Tongued Devils, is quickly rising to the top, playing sold out shows and topping the charts, and he has a beautiful, smart fiancée to share it all with. Until he makes the mistake that rocks his world.
Derek Calloway is a loyal friend—the one you can depend on. He’s following his dream of playing in a rock band with his best friend, but what happens when he falls in love with the girl who should be off limits? Battling his emotions day in and day out is like a two-ton weight on his shoulders, but is giving in to them worth losing everything—is she worth losing everything?

Goodreads

Totally not what I was expecting. Waaaaaay better! Samantha Conley is a new author for me. When I read the blurb all I could think of was the Rock Star falls in love with the geek and they live happily ever after. Totally predictable, right? Wrong! Kristin, the nurse, and Brett, the lead singer do fall in love. Everything has been great and they are engaged. Kristin, along with her friends have become fast friends and are close to the others in the band. One night a surprise goes wrong and this ends things between Kristin and Brett. Derek is both of their best friends and is struggling being between the two. Brett slowly declines and Kristin is trying to piece her life back together. As this goes on feelings are flying and bad things start to happen. This is where things get really unpredictable. I can’t go into the story as I do not give spoilers! But I absolutely recommend this book. The plot thickens and the ending is nothing like I expected. This is a fast read and I finished it in one sitting. It had me hooked! I am looking forward to more from Samantha Conley!

I’m just a small-town Texas girl who loves her husband, kids and the Dallas Cowboys. I spend most of my free time, what little there is between work and kids, reading almost anything I can get my hands on. I was inspired to start writing on my last birthday after I attended my first author signing event. On a wing and a prayer (and a swift kick in the ass from my best friend), I wrote my first novel. Now, I am hooked on writing and can’t type fast enough for the voices in my head or my best friend.

#Review – Immortal Hearts of San Francisco box set by Susan Griscom

33021485

Enter a world of temptation and lust, where rock stars are not only gorgeous and sexy, but they’re also vampires. These books are hot and sexy, and romantically addicting.

Tempted by a Vampire
Cian DeMarco, has lived in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay for the past seventy of his two-hundred and twenty years of his existence. Happily–or so he thought, preying on a different woman as often as his heart desires. Until the beautiful Magdalena De la Rosa sits down at one of the front-row tables in Club Royal where he and his band mates perform once a week. The scent of her blood has him completely undone and he’s unable to contain his desire for her.

Magdalena has a new job and a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco. Everything is just the way she’s imagined it could be… until she and her girlfriend find their way into an up scale night club and she’s suddenly swept off her feet by a member of the rock band. Mesmerized by his gaze, his scent penetrates and embraces every cell of her body and she can’t deny her own desires for him.

A temptation they can’t resist, leads to a future they never imagined as sparks ignite between the two until a threat from Cian’s past returns to wreak havoc on Cian’s and Magdalena’s lives. Will the desire to be together outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe?

Captivated by a Vampire
She’s a vampire. He’s human and the best investigative reporter in the city. Their worlds mix as well as oil and water, but their attraction to each other is electric.

Josh Barrett knows his priorities—reporting the news as quickly and accurately as possible by day, drinking himself into a self-loathing stupor by night. His workaholic tendencies can’t completely mask the broken, depressed man he is inside. The horrific night that changed his life forever and left him broken-hearted and alone is forever fresh in his thoughts. But the torture is no less than he deserves. Until a beautiful, sexy, and utterly mysterious woman enters his life and changes everything. Chelle is absolutely enchanting, her allure captivating and the reporter in him is determined to learn all of her secrets.

Newly turned vampire Chelle Masterson only wants to find her place. Her unrequited love and devotion for her maker Lane has left Chelle broken, vowing to never fall for any man again. She’s determined to find her way in the scary new world of the immortals and begs for the chance to prove herself—to prove that she’s capable of surviving without the others. Unfortunately, she meets trouble head-on with her very first victim and ends up face to face with a very charming and handsome stranger. He seems to only want to help, but can she trust him?

As Josh slowly wins Chelle over, she decides to utilize his skills as a reporter to help uncover her past—a dark past that she cannot remember, but one she desperately needs to learn. Being around him is addicting, their connection undeniable, and she finds her will to keep him at arm’s-length dwindling.
The simple act of a Good Samaritan spirals into an obsession—much more than either of them thought possible. Their love becomes unfathomable, but it may not be enough to overcome the hurdles standing in their way…

Rocked by a Vampire
He’s dangerously sexy, insufferably arrogant, rude, and complicated as hell, yet what he reveals to her makes it impossible to stay angry and she can’t stop her growing desire for him.

Lane, has always walked in his brother’s shadow. And for good reason. There are monsters that plague his mind. Demons that once destroyed him. Broke him. Now, his desire for Vanessa torments him, igniting those revenants whenever he thinks of her. He’s desired her for months, but he hates what she is—what she stands for. Can the witch he loathes be the one to tame his demons?

Goodreads

Love these books!!!!

Tempted By a Vampire
“Vampires are real you know”… Just when you think you have it all under control, fate steps in and throws a wrench into everything you thought you knew. This is what happens when Magdalena plays it safe. But this is where the story begins. Her friend gets her to let loose and when she does she meets Cian (Kee-yan). He’s a hot singer in a band that plays at the local bar. Cian is a vampire and has lived for many years. He has found a comfortable existence that makes him feel just a little less of a monster. He sees Magdalena and fireworks explode. They are both drawn to each other. Eventually Cian entrusts Magdalena with his secret but then things go from good to complicated in 2.4 seconds. All of a sudden she is faced with many things paranormal and everything that she has ever known comes crashing down. Fate knows how to mess with people and definitely knows how to shake things up! Paranormal romance with all the right twists and turns. Love Tempted By a Vampire!

Captivated By a Vampire
This author has a way of getting you to like a book then giving you the second one to make you like the next one more. This is exactly what happened to me. I read Tempted By a Vampire and really, really liked it. But then I get my hands on this baby and love this story even more! This story is about Chelle and Josh. We meet Chelle in Tempted and she is the one that Lane turned into a vampire…not by choice. Chelle and Lane have lots of history and Chelle is finally getting out on her own. Josh is an investigative journalist, and a mere human, that is given an assignment that has him questioning himself. When Chelle and Josh meet they have strong connection. As things unfold, Chelle starts remembering her past, her parents, and the circumstances surrounding her parents death. As these things come to light she and Josh start confiding in each other and find that their pasts aren’t so different and they are more alike than they thought. Now they have to figure out if they can be good for each other. But this is not where this story ends. Not even close! There is a ginormous twist that will make your head spin and is absolutely worth the read. When you get to this part, you will understand completely what I mean. There is this perfect balance of love and hate. It’s full of bada$$ery and is soooooooo HOT!

Rocked By a Vampire
Rocked my soul! A rockin’ test of wills! This is Lane’s and Vanessa’s story…and what a story it is. Both of them are incredibly hard headed and always at each other’s throats. Although, they secretly like each other. *wags eyebrows* They both think the other doesn’t like them because of being a vampire or a witch but they share a connection that they cannot deny. This is an absolute test of wills between the two and the rollercoaster of emotion that follows is intense to say the least. Both start to bring the other out of their shell then all hell breaks loose. Vanessa and Lane are both very strong characters and watching them clash and come together is inspiring. This story is sweet, erotic, and satisfying.

We have followed these characters in Tempted By a Vampire and Captivated By a Vampire. They can be read as standalones but to truly appreciate these characters I suggest you read from the beginning. The author is incredible at making these characters evolve in a way you can’t rip away from. They go through the same emotions most people go through and therefore make them more real (even though they are vampires and witches, lol!). This series gets better and better as it continues.

#Review – Hearts Insanity by @Ellie__Masters

30694488

Skye Summers endured a tragic past. She wants what the past stole, and despite lingering scars, she’s surviving and thriving. Now she cures the sick, heals the wounded, and takes care of those clinging to life. The only person she can’t heal is herself, because Skye is too broken for love.

Ash Dean has it all: Fame, fortune, and the adoration of screaming fans. The constant parties, drugs, alcohol, and an endless string of one-night stands are taking their toll. He gives and his fans take, until he’s lost within the crowd. He wants someone to see him for the man he wishes to be rather than the one he’s become.

One fate…

Two lives…

Three Days…

That’s the proposition…

It would be insane to accept and Skye’s a fool to agree, but she’s tired of playing it safe.

It’s time to take a leap of faith, besides what could go wrong?

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Heart’s Insanity: an Angel Fire Rock Romance by Ellie Masters
Ash & Skye
WOW… WHAT A RIDE
5 STARS

This one is not your typical “rocker” romance! So much more is going on. So many emotions, so many feels, I can hardly contain myself. Ellie did a great job of putting me right there in the thick of it. I felt like I was part of this crazy crew.

Skye is fucked up, possibly beyond repair. She’s endured so much heartache and torment at such a young age. Now as an adult, and a successful one at that, she’s still messed up, but just rolls with the punches and takes what she can get… a.k.a. Spencer. What goes through a girls mind when she picks a guy who treats her like that? Who knows! She amazed me at every turn of the pages and I loved her unconditionally.

Ash isn’t your typical “rock star,” well, maybe he was, but once Skye sees right through his BS he’s instantly captivated by her. I have to hand it to him. He doesn’t give up easily and thank God for that! Ash stands up to Skye, her brother, and his bandmates for “the one.” Exhilarating to read!

The supporting character cast is pretty big here. Let’s see if I can remember all the names… The Angel Fire crew is as follows… Bent, Bash, Spike, and Noodles. I’m not sure about Bent at the moment. He was kind of a dick! There’s a shady manger and the security detail which I ended up liking. Then there’s Spencer, Skye’s ex-fiancé. What a controlling asspipe. And my personal favorite, Bean (Beanpole) Skyes BIG brother. And when I say BIG brother I mean like 6’8″ of a BIG brother. He swooned me immediately.

So, I read it in less than a day. It’s that good! The characters (even the shithead ones) were very convincing and mesmerizing. The dialogue flowed flawlessly and the storyline was impeccable. Plenty of tension leading up to the climax that I struggled to put it down. I loved it and can’t wait to see what comes next.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

14502459

Ellie Masters has been exploring the worlds of romance, dark erotica, science fiction, and fantasy by reading and writing the stories she likes to read. When not writing, Ellie can be found outside, where her passion for all things outdoor reigns supreme: off­ roading, ATV-ing, scuba diving, hiking, and breathing fresh air, are just a few of her favorite pursuits.

Wife, lover, and mother are her most treasured roles, but Ellie has played many parts: counter-girl at McDonalds, a research assistant in a Nanofabrication facility, rocket scientist, physician, and now a published author with the release of her debut novel Changing Roles.

She has lived all over the United States, east, west, north, south and central, but grew up under the Hawaiian sun. Now, Ellie is proud to call herself a Southern transplant, learning to say y’all and ‘bless her heart’ with the best of them. She lives with her beloved husband, two children who refuse to flee the nest, and four fur-­babies; three cats who rule the household, and a dog who wants nothing other than for the cats to be his friends. The cats have a different opinion regarding this matter.

Ellie’s favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch, laptop in place, watching a fire, drinking a good wine, and bringing forth all the characters from her mind to the page and hopefully into the hearts of her readers.

synopsis

Is it too much to believe that someone keeps returning to your life because it’s meant to be?

Zane Carson is an idealistic young man with one big skeleton in his closet when he first meets Jennifer Manders in college. They date only to break up soon after. The sexual attraction is like an electromagnet but they fight like alley cats. The relationship just isn’t worth it.

Zane’s band Fully Automatic breaks big about the same time Jennifer finishes college. One summer afternoon, they meet for coffee and sparks fly once more. It’s off again, on again, but they just can’t make it work and break it off for good, deciding it’s not worth the effort.

But Zane is drawn to her and, during a break in the music action, he tracks her down again, willing to change himself for her and needing to give her one last try. The attraction is as strong as ever, but now Jennifer is hiding something from Zane—something big, something that threatens to extinguish the spark for good. When Zane discovers her secret, will he be able to forgive her or will that be the end?

excerpt

“Oh, Zane, this place is amazing. Why haven’t I ever heard of it before?”

“I can tell you exactly why. Three reasons.” She raised her eyebrows as he raised his index finger. “One, it’s almost downtown, and I know you avoid downtown like the plague. If I recall, you said something about rather losing a limb than walk the Sixteenth Street Mall again.”

“I said that?”

“Yeah.”

“Well…maybe that was a little drastic.”

“Yeah, probably.” He lifted the bottle of Dos Equis and then said, “Two, it’s a little hole in the wall. It doesn’t advertise like some of the bigger restaurants—no billboards, no newspaper ads, shit like that.”

Jennifer nodded. “Okay, yeah. And what’s number three?”

Zane leaned over the table and whispered. “It’s kind of a dive.” Jennifer couldn’t help but giggle. “But in a good way.”

She laughed out loud at that. “Yeah, definitely.” She picked up a chip and dipped it in the warm queso next to Zane’s bottle. “The food is amazing so far.”

“Just wait.”

The waiter came by with a pitcher. “More water, señorita?”

“Please.” After the waiter was back on his way, she said to Zane, “I love it. I love the people and I even love that stupid TV in the corner.”

Zane glanced over. “Yeah, well…”

“No, seriously. They don’t have the sound on, but it somehow makes it feel like home in here, you know? Lights and movement, but the sounds are coming from the kitchen and some weird soundtrack.”

Zane breathed through his nose, putting on a look of mock horror and said, “What if it’s our soundtrack?”

“What do you mean?”

“What if this is our movie? A movie about our lives…and that’s the soundtrack?”

“Three things.”

Zane grinned. “What?”

“One…if this is our movie, it’s pretty damn boring. No car chases, no sex scenes, no snappy dialogue—”

“Says who? My dialogue’s plenty snappy.”

“Two, the soundtrack sucks.”

“Well, don’t be telling them that.”

“And…I don’t have a three. I guess just two.”

A smirk covered Zane’s face. “And we can take care of the sex scene later.”

Praise

AND she’s back! Who might you ask? Well of course I am talking about the hard rocking Queen herself…Jade Jamison and her fascinating, complex Fully Automatic cast of characters and in particular Zane, the quietly messed up bass player who lives his life on the edge and crosses the line one too many times before he falls from the cliff….

A lot of twists and a few surprises (some more expected than others) make this sixth book in the Bullet series a wonderful comeback for Jamison…after all the zombies, girl rockers and girl reporters of her other projects, I was very happy she went back to the series I first fell in love with and did an amazing job. Highly recommend if you have read and loved all the boys in Fully Automatic.” ~ Sue Banner, top Amazon reviewer

“When I finished this book my heart was so sad. Sad not at the book but sad that this was it. This was the end of the line for the Bullet guys. This was the end of a series that I have grown to love and looked forward to reading for years…” ~ Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Blog, www.twinsietalk.com

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

As I read this I wanted to soak up every piece of it because it’s the last of the Bullet Series and I will l miss these guys yes ever Ethan. They have all gotten their HEA well all but Zane and now could it be his turn. Will he get clean and stay sober for the one he has always loved or will his addictions win again?

Jennifer went through so much with Zane during college then with their on again off again relationship of dealing with their fighting and his infidelity and additions. It has been 2 years since Zane has contacted Jen and she has to make sure he has changed before she lets her walls down again. There is just too much at stake now.

Watching Zane trying to make the changes in his life he needs to prove to Jen he is changing warmed my heart. What he did for Hen at his house was amazing even if he did have a little help from the housekeeper. I enjoyed being able to see Brad , Val, Ethan, and Jenna all doing so well and their families were growing. I sure am going to miss this group thanks for the amazing journey.

Here is one of my favorites:

Maybe he was her soul mate if there was such a thing. Yes, if there was, Zane was it, because she’d felt a connection to him from their first date. They’d somehow clicked.
