Book Cover

When Brian and Sophie meet, there’s spontaneous combustion.

Too bad they hate each other.

Fashion model Sophia Buckley has despised Brian Zimmer from the first time she heard him speak…and so, without even getting to know him, she plots revenge, executing her plan perfectly. Playing a groupie, she engages Brian in a steamy encounter, only to leave him high and dry.

Brian figures she’s simply the mayor of Crazy Town, vowing to forget the experience and move on.

Except she won’t let him because she keeps turning up in his life.

Despite Brian’s protests, the band’s manager forces Last Five Seconds to engage with this woman because she has an innate talent for stirring up drama. Throw in the paparazzi, and both she and the band get some much-needed publicity.

Forced together, Brian and Sophie find their feelings for one another growing.

But it would never work. They are oil and water, not yin and yang.

So why do they keep ending up in each other’s life? In each other’s bed?

When Sophie cuts Brian to the quick in a very public way, he finds the fuel to walk away for good. But will he really be able to stay away?

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Received a copy of this book for an honest review.

So excited to see Last Five Seconds.  I so missed these guys, really Jet/Clay is still my favorite and loved seeing him. This one is about Brian Zimmer and a model Sophia.  Talk about taking a roller coaster ride with these two.

Sophia was on a mission to teach Brian a lesson. Brian and Sophia did not get along but his manager makes it so she is seen with him to increase the bands publicity.  These two did not get along at all but they keep getting tossed together.  They soon realize that Brian’s manager could be right and any press good or bad could be good for both of their carriers.

Once these two started spending time together the fireworks starting filling the sky.  Man does Brian know how to bring on the heat. I enjoyed this story and love all these guys.  It took me a bit to warm up to Sophia but she really shined by the end. I loved the little teaser at the end now I’m so excited for the next book.

A favorite quote:

Brian knew he’d just scored major points here. Maybe now they could move past their distrust and anger. If nothing else, at least he knew one part of her loved him – and that one part she had little control over. Brian’s job now would be to win her entire heart.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Brian!!  I fell in crazy love with you in this series.  When you got married to Kyle in The Vagabond series. I was a little sad because she was not the right person for you.  Don’t get me wrong..we loved her but not with you.  I was a smidge worried about you but was so excited you finally got your HEA.

When I opened the book and read the first chapter I was hooked.  I mean turning hate to love is a tough road and after the way Sophia treated him….I was loving it.  Sorry Brian but I was.  She GOT YOU DUDE!!

Brian and Sophia meet up again and sparks FLY.  Seems they are so compatible they combust at each turn. Even when they want to apologize, they end up fighting. The couple soon realize negative press is good for business.  With the guy’s album sales sluggish and reviews not being so kind plus Sophia realizes that this is great for booking gigs…they continue the ruse.  However, the ruse soon blows up in their faces when there are soon hiding real feelings.

I love Brian like I said before and getting to know more about “him” and why he is the jokester and funny guy made me love him even more.  Sophia is like any struggling model and soon she realizes that maybe she wants more out of life then just being a pretty face.  Law isn’t her passion but what she wants she doesn’t know but she needs Brian by her side to complete her life.

I enjoyed the story plus seeing all the other couples but reading the chapter for the next book had my heart all kinds of excited for what is to come!!!

#WOTR21 #BoxSet #BadBoys – Dirty Boys: Bad Boys Rock Star Romance Box Set by Jade C. Jamison

Book Cover

99 cents till release day!

Do you love rock star romance?
Bad boy rock star gods?
The women who complete them?
Oh, and do you like your stories steamier than a sauna?

Then dig into this box set containing four full-length rock star romance novels and discover why Jade’s readers call her the “Queen of Rockstar Romance.”

Bullet
Valerie is a naïve college freshman when she meets on-the-rise rock star Ethan, an idealistic, handsome, reckless young man who’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?

Everything But
High school English teacher Erin is stuck with the unwelcome job of filling in for the injured cheerleading coach, but she wants to back out when she discovers she has to be auctioned as a date during the annual spring fundraiser. She’s horrified to find her rock star crush Riley Schultz, former frontman of Spawn, will be playing emcee for the event, but she’s even more shocked that he also happens to be the highest bidder for her affections, and sparks ignite when she discovers that maybe their attraction is mutual…

On the Run
They say things come in threes…like sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Love is not part of that equation—but tell that to my heart.

From the first moment I met CJ Slavin, I fell for him hard. It was as if everything else in my world muted: the album my band was about to release, the coast-to-coast tour we were preparing for, all the adoring fans who were going to eat us up. Even the drama and bullsh*t from my bandmates couldn’t bring me down when CJ was around.

But he tells me I’m too young. And we’re going to be thousands of miles apart. Add to it, his adoring fans will drop to their knees for him.

So what’s a girl to do? At least I still have sex, drugs, and rock & roll…

Love and Lies
Casey never wanted to get divorced—and she definitely didn’t plan to go home again. But she needed a place to lick her wounds, so she headed back to her hometown, the one place on earth she swore she’d never return to. Spending time with her hypercritical mother spurs Casey to find a job quickly so she can get back on her feet—and that’s where she meets sexy Scott Wardell, a man who makes her heart beat faster even while stirring her anger.

As she gets to know Scott better, she discovers that he plays drums for a local rock band. He seems perfect for her…except maybe he hasn’t told her everything about the ex. And his creepy best friend isn’t doing him any favors, either. But even if Casey could handle those problems, she’s got her own ex and cold feet she needs to grapple with…

This box set also includes two bonus novellas: NO PLACE LIKE HOME from the Bullet series and BEATING HEARTS from the Vagabonds series.

No Place Like Home
Brad of metal band Fully Automatic has recently lost his mother to cancer and he finds himself unable to enjoy life anymore. With the help of his wife Val and his children, can he find his former zeal for living or is he destined to be numb and detached for the remainder of his days?

Beating Hearts
Brandon, an inexperienced young drummer for Kyle Summers’ band, is about to play his first festival, but first he needs to find out who’s stalking him. When he does, things just might get too hot to handle…

“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.” – Rosa, iScream Books, review for ON THE RUN

Are you READY? Which rock star god will you fall hardest for?

#WOTR21 #Rocker #Drummer – #DoubleReview Inferno, Feverish Book 3 by Jade C. Jamison

Inferno (Feverish #3)

His past was supposed to stay in the past.

Dane, Last Five Seconds’ drummer, is the “quiet” one. It’s not just because his bandmates are boisterous and love sucking up the limelight.

It’s part of who he is, where he comes from. But he’s determined to break free from the chains of his past.

When it catches up to him, his comfortable world shatters, leaving him with an injured back and an inability to perform his work onstage. To get back on the road as soon as possible, he undergoes physical therapy to aid with his recovery.

Enter Charlie. As his physical therapist, she’s a hell of a caregiver, but she’s also feisty. Sometimes she’s abrupt. And snappy. And downright rude. And, like Dane, she’s got a few hidden scars.

But Dane sees something inside her, something that speaks to him. Although Charlie holds him at arm’s length, even after he’s no longer her patient, Dane is finally able to penetrate her armor. While his scars have never fully healed, hers go even deeper.

As they work through their pasts together, Dane is convinced it will make them stronger, but can they ever move beyond their insecurities and hang ups enough to trust each other…or are they destined to be alone?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

STAHP!!!  They are back!!  The LFS guys are back!!!! I am so excited.  Its been FOREVAH since we got to see the guys…..Clay and Emily are good.  Sam and Grace are planning the wedding.  Brian is dealing with his divorce and then there is quiet Dane.  Dane has always been a little on the quiet side and this book we get to know him and why he is so “shy”.

Childhood bullies leave a mark on our sweet Dane.  After reconnecting with one he gets a bit stupid and overly drunk which causes him to hurt his back.  Off to Physical Therapy he goes.  Except falling for his therapist isn’t what he should be doing.

Charlie is a mess.  This girl lives with scars and trauma that no one should be able to recover from and yet here she is rocking her façade of a happy life.  She feels some ways about Dane but pushes and pushes and pushes him away.

When Dane kinda stalkery but not really stalkery but yet stalkery finds her and asks her out they seem to click.  Both, however, have crazy low confidence and read the wrong vibe the other throws out at times which makes things hella mess.  I’m telling ya they are the perfect match for the other but they kinda step on their own toes at times.

Charlie is petrified of love but Dane’s light just crumbles her walls. Dane is so in love with Charlie and yet he reads things she does the wrong way which makes him feel less than.  Gah, these two!!  Seriously they have all the chemistry and all the love but also all the fear when you go all in with someone.

I loved the story and seriously this makes me want to do a reread to remember the awesome story of Clay and Sam but then I gotta go back to Brad/Val/Ethan since that is where we met this ban of awesomeness!!

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

I so thrilled to have Last Five Seconds back.  I mean really, I get to see Clay/Jet again *sigh*. Ok I know let’s get back to Dane. Dane is our quite shy drummer.

Dane is dealing with demons from his childhood when he falls off the stage at a concert. He has to have therapy where he meets Charlie. Charlie has no idea who Dane is and Dane is intrigued by her. Once Dane is back on his feet, he seeks out Charlie.  Dane had a bit of stalker in him for this…lol.

Charlie has her own issues she is dealing with.  While Dane is pursuing Charlie, she has to decide if he is worth chipping away at the wall she built to protect herself.

I loved Dane but Charlie took a bit to get used to.  These two had chemistry but man it took a while for them to get it together. I so enjoyed watching Dane and Charlies story evolve.  I also realized how much I missed my man Jet.

Lick, Book 1 by Kylie Scott

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

Constantly surrounded by family, Peter just wants to get away. And when he meets Libby, he’s finally found the one person who only wants to be with him, not the rock star.

But while Peter battles his family’s growing interference in both his music and his personal life, Libby struggles with her aunt, who turns nastier each day. And even though Libby and Peter desperately want to be together, their drastically different lives threaten to keep them apart forever.

#Review – The Road To Heartbreak by J.L. Baldwin

From that first moment I saw Roscoe until he left town, we were the best of friends growing up.

My feelings for him grew with time, but when I finally decided to tell him how I felt, he left to travel the world with a country band, taking my heart with him.

Life has a way of giving you your own country song. I know it did for me when years later, Roscoe breezed back into my life as if no time had passed, and returned keeping a promise I thought he’d forgotten with his guitar and my heart in tow.

This novella was originally published in the Rocked to the Core Anthology, and has been rewritten and expanded with new scenes and chapters. Hope y’all enjoy!
This novella was originally published in the Rocked to the Core Anthology, and has been rewritten and expanded with new scenes and chapters. Hope y’all enjoy it!
This book was so freaking sweet. Like one of the sweetest things I have ever read. I usually go for all the smut and I actually went into this book blind, so I had no idea that it was as sweet as it was. But I am totally fine with that! It was a nice change compared to some of the dirty books I’ve read.
Roscoe and Ophelia grew up together. He came to join her family when they were kids and they ended up being foster brother and sister. But that of course never stopped their feelings from growing for each other.
They both have careers of their own. With Roscoe being a big musician and Ophelia working with animals, they focus on their jobs until something happens that calls both of them home.
Roscoe decides to take Ophelia on a little trip but of course, that doesn’t go as planned. She’s not used to being in the spot light or seeing the women fawn over the man she’s in love with, so it puts a damper on things and her feelings for him.
Together they fight the little issues that life throws at them but like all romance books that we love to devour, love conquers all!
I really enjoyed this book and could see the growth in JL’s writing. I understand that it’s been two years since she published a book but you can clearly see that she took some time to expand on her writing and story telling.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

A vampire romance with a death grip on your emotions, holding your heart hostage from beginning to end!

This is going to be a tough review for me to write because I don’t want to give anything away. First things first, I love V and Lane. I have from the beginning and am ecstatic that they finally get their story told. The entire family has grown and I just love that they continue on these stories. Since the blurb makes you think about what the tarot reader foretold from the first book for V’s and Maggie’s future, I can’t give you many details of what happens in this story. What I can tell you is that it is super hawt and steamy. There are quite a few surprises that will keep you on your toes. And about the time I thought the book was coming to an end…the madness was only getting started! I was surprised that the spell V casted even worked, and that it worked so well. And on top of that someone from the past shows up to wreak havoc! This story constantly pulls at your heartstrings. This one for me was a very emotional book. When you read it, you will understand completely. This is a definite must read! Oh, and btw… here is my one and only spoiler, the next book is Ari’s! Can’t wait!

Susan Griscom

Susan writes paranormal and contemporary romance–steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She’s a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.

She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor.

Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.

Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing.

Review by Twinsie Angie

Original Review HERE from December 2012 (Be kind. I had just started blogging and reviewing…LOL)

New Review

I was given this audio book from the author for an honest review.

I read this book when I first started blogging and 6 years later when the author offered an audio I jumped.

I enjoyed the narration of the story and the narrators voice was enjoyable to listen too.  Sometimes a bad narrator can make a book not so enjoyable.

I still enjoyed this story like I did 6 years ago.  I loved the theme of family and dreams plus wants and desires.

I am still not a huge YA reader, but the story of Libby and Peter did pull at me.  I will say the entire time I am reading of Peter and his brother being rock stars I kept seeing the Jonas Brothers in my mind.  LOL  The story has deep themes and Libby will just slay you with her sweet and innocent persona.

I don’t get much time to “reread” but I am so glad I grabbed this audio when offered.  I remembered loving this story and it hasn’t changed for me at all.

Because the Night (Night Songs Book 1)

Meet the vampire hellbent on destruction and the girl who will do anything to save him, set to a hard rock soundtrack in the hot Las Vegas night…
Sex, blood, and rock n’ roll.

Immortal Dilemma is the hottest show in Vegas and Tristan Trevosier is their biggest star. But to me, he’s the guy who broke my heart and then showed up on stage claiming to be a vampire.

Tristan says I won’t understand his new life. He won’t let me in. That’s how I met Blade, a human with a mysterious connection to Immortal Dilemma. Blade is willing to give me everything Tristan won’t.
But I can’t let him go.

The true darkness of Tristan’s world terrifies me, and I fear for his life. Now Blade’s gone missing and I have to choose—save my mortal friend or abandon my immortal love.

This book is full of twists and turns you won’t see coming, and characters you won’t soon forget.–Tam, Amazon reviewer
As I read the last page GASPING shaking the book thinking to myself if I shake it more words would magically appear but note to self NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK.–Karina, Amazon reviewer

Amazon

Vampire rock scene, in VEGAS! Callie goes to Vegas with her cousin to see her ex-boyfriend who has become famous from a reality tv show and is also the star of the band, Immortal Dilemma. She thinks she needs to save him as he is spiraling out of control with addictions. What she doesn’t realize is that he is a vampire and there are other circumstances that keep him from leaving. In the midst of this she meets Blade. He is into music too and seems to be a pretty great guy. She spontaneously decides to stay in Vegas instead of going home. This is the first part of where I start to lose Callie. She is 18 and decides to stay in Vegas. But ok, she gets a job and things are going ok. The story keeps going and she is falling in love with Blade but can’t stay away from Tristan, her ex and vampire star. I got back into the story with the push and pull that she had to deal with between Tristan and Blade. At this point since she is spending more time with Tristan we start to understand his situation better. Things go from weird to crazy and to just plain terrible for Callie. As Callie tries to fight for her life, and the others she cares about, she gets into some super bad situations. I listened to this in an audiobook. The narrator was ok, I wanted to like her but sometimes I think that the narrator made Callie sound even more whiny and undecided with what she wanted to do. The story is good but sometimes it seemed like it took a long time to get to where it needed to be. I plan to continue the series because there was a huge twist at the end of the book and I have to find out what happens! 

Kristen Strassel

Kristen Strassel writes heroes you want to spend the night with. Spend the night reading…what did you think she meant?

Emma has always been obsessed with Ollie Mills of
the southern rock band, Sunset Revival. She follows his every move on
Twitter, likes all his posts on Instagram, and stalks his page on Facebook. So
when there’s a contest to win a date with the sexy-as-sin, bad-boy rockstar, of
course she enters.


It’s a one in a million chance.

Caleb Mills has always been unlucky in love. From
the girl who broke his heart, to every one-night stand in between, the lead
singer of Sunset Revival barely feels anything anymore. He’s focused on
his music and nothing more. Until he sees Emma, in a blue dress, on a hot night
in Nashville. She’s meant to be his brother’s date, but the moment his eyes
connect with hers he wants this beautiful girl all for himself.

Caleb knows, it will only take Ollie a minute to
screw things up. And he’ll be there waiting to win this girl’s heart the moment
he does. But can any girl, ever, really trust a rockstar

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

As someone who has met a famous person and been crushed by them, I totally related to Emma.  She totally dug Ollie and to find out what he was really like…ugh.  Emma wins a date with Ollie who is in her favorite band.  She is totally stoked because hell its OLLIE.  She soon discovers what a not awesome dude he is and then we see Caleb.  He too is in the bad with Ollie.

This book is essentially a friends’ to lovers’ story with Emma and Caleb finding each other and then falling for each other.  Caleb stepped up and helped Emma when her date with Ollie was a hot mess.  Caleb used to be a player but has grown tired of it.  Which I was kinda stunned by because he is so not like Ollie but I guess that cheetah changed his spots!!  LOL

I enjoyed the story and look for more in the series.
