Bullet Book 1 by Jade Jamison – 
When I meet Ethan in college, I am instantly drawn to his good looks, wit, and charm. And when he tells me he’s in a band, I’m completely smitten. We become fast friends outside the classroom, bonding over our mutual love of music.

But for me, friendship is not enough. Unfortunately, Ethan keeps me firmly in the friend zone. In fact, he seems intent on pushing me away and breaking my heart. On moment, he acts like I’m his whole world and the next, he’s as cold as ice.

Ethan’s buried something deep inside, something he won’t talk about, but it makes him self-destructive. How can he love me if he doesn’t even love himself?

And how can I save him when he doesn’t feel that he’s worthy of salvation?

“This book stole all of my emotions from me for the rest of the day… maybe the rest of the week…. Plus, my raw, open, still beating heart is sitting on the couch next to me from this emotional journey. W.O.W. freakin WOW. This book is AMAZING.” Ellie, Love N. Books

***PLEASE NOTE: THIS BOOK WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN ONE VOLUME UNDER THE TITLE Bullet: An Epic Rock Star Novel***

On the Run book 1, Jade Jamison – 

From Book 1: 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.

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.

Rock and a Hard Place book 1 by Angie Stanton

From Book 1:

When you fall in love with a rock star, anything can happen. . . .

Libby In an instant, Libby’s life went from picture-perfect to a nightmare. After surviving a terrible car accident, Libby is abandoned by her father and left with her controlling aunt. A new town, a new school, no friends—Libby is utterly alone. But then she meets Peter.

Peter The lead singer in a rock band with his brothers, Peter hates that his parents overly manage his life.

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 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

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.

Angie Stanton is a life-long daydreamer who grew up with her hands on a book and her head in the clouds. As an adult, she’s put her talent to good use writing award winning contemporary fiction about life, love, and the adventures that follow.

#WOTR20 – #Review – Because the Night (The Night Songs Collection, #1) by Kristen Strassel

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
Leave yourself some time when you begin this story. It will draw you in, and you must find out how it ends before you can put it down again.–KSon, Amazon reviewer

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? She started reading paranormal and romance when her mom realized the spookier and spicier the book, the more likely she was to devour it. Now she creates the characters and worlds she always wanted to read about.

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.

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!!!!

“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?

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

Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! #1)

Fatal Desires
Fatal Cross Live!
Book 1
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?

BookBub

Who doesn’t like a hot rocker story? This is a spin off of the Glory Days series. I didn’t realize that until I was about half way through the book. However, it didn’t stop me from continuing Cora’s and Taylor’s story. Cora works for her cousin’s band and she has a tryst with Taylor, a guitarist from another band, Fatal Cross. They have an incredible time and then go their separate ways. After their brief, but very hawt time together they both end up dealing with some very intense situations. They both could have leaned on each other but couldn’t connect (you must read this because I can’t explain and give it away!). All of a sudden they are slammed back into a situation where they are forced to work together. The tension is so thick between the two that you can literally feel it as you are reading. They both are incredibly stubborn and have an intense back and forth throughout the entire book that when they finally fall together you really feel it deep down. 

“Rule number one…don’t sleep with rockstars who’ve dipped their pen in so much ink that their cocks are stained from all the attention.”

This is one of my favorite lines. Again, both of the characters are super strong willed and stubborn so when they bump heads it gets crazy! 

As the story progresses you get to see how these two eventually get back to each other, even if it involves tragic situations. This is one of those stories that is quick and easy to read but will have your emotions all over the place. As I said at the beginning, this is the first book I have read by this author, and I didn’t realize this was a spin off series, but I am looking forward to continuing this series as well as going back to read Glory Days.

The 5th book in the Immortal Hearts of San Francisco!

Gage McAllister wants nothing to do with Acelynn Baird, but he’s constantly drawn to her. And right at all the perfect moments. As though some invisible force was tugging and pulling him in her direction.

Vampires, witches, and wolves….oh my! I know, so cliche’ right? I can’t help it! This is one of my favorite vampire series and I think with each new story I say “This is my favorite in the series”. I am not sure how the author will top this one. I really, really, really love Gage’s and Ace’s story! And this one is a slow burn. But a perfect…..slow……burn…..

In the past books we never did find out exactly how old Gage is but only know that he is old and very strong. Well guess what? We find out now! This hawt as hell drummer just happens to be in the right place at the right time to save Ace who is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She can’t seem to steer clear of trouble and when trouble is there, so is Gage. He wants nothing to do with Ace. He can’t dream of being in love with anyone. He doesn’t want to condemn the person he loves to the type of life he has had to live as a vampire and never wants to fall in love with a human that he will have to watch grow old and die. Ace is a tough female and is perfect for this story. She gives Gage a run for his money. But when both of their pasts come to a head the story really gets interesting. There are so many twists and turns and craziness that will keep you turning the pages.

“There were so many wrongs to this situation and simply not enough rights.”

“I knew deep in my heart that I’d been waiting all these years for this man. When he ended the kiss my soul felt lost, empty, and I wanted him back, closer.”

Protected By a Vampire will not just be a memory for you. This is a must read and then a must re-read! Gimme more!

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.
