Vintage, A novel by Lisa Suzanne

I love rockstar novels and this was no exception. Vintage is a mystery, thriller love story, and is the first of the bunch. No fears though, the cliff didn’t make me wanna hang myself. I seriously hate cliff hangers when I don’t have the second book right away, but this was all good.

Vintage is the story of Roxanna Cecilia “Jimi”, Daughter of Gideon Price, Lead singer of Black Shadow AND up-and-coming rockstar (not lead, but definitely our leading man) Parker James, Guitarist, Back-up Vocalist and Songwriter of Flashing Light.  Jimi has been through the wringer when it comes to love and is gun shy of musicians who might want to use her for a connection to her father and mysterious Parker is the man who finally makes her bleed and feel. The connection between them is instantaneous, but can she trust him?

Jimi is a girl after my own heart. I love her vulnerability and her fears about love and I love the couple together. At first, I was apprehensive. There are so many secrets, and even after this first volume, there is so much we need to know.

And then there’s Jimi’s relationship with her dad which I adore. We all know those relationships or we are in them. They have a special bond, but he’s been keeping secrets from her. What’s going on and why must she go on tour with him so he can “protect” her?

This book is full of a maelstrom of feelings, mysteries and love. Throughout the novel, you’re constantly guessing at what is going on and I love that about a book. I will definitely recommend this to a friend and give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

*I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for a(n) honest review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three, A novel by Eli Carter (E.S Carter)

I got Three from Netgalley in return for a(n) honest review, so a(n) honest review you shall get. When I read the synopsis for Three,  I knew I had to read it, and I was not disappointed. I’ll definitely be giving this one a five star rating.

The story started out intriguing enough but then lulled a bit after that. My bad tho, I was expecting action all through. However, apart from that tiny lull, it was action all through. ACTION. I loved this novel.

This is a story of love and sacrifice. Liam and Cari(ad) had a love that was it for them, but circumstances got in the way. Mostly a very loving and beautiful circumstance. I don’t want to go too much into the story, but anyone who reads this story will find something to love about it.

Furthermore, the story was real, the characters were real. Most of the time, these stories do things that we see as normal for a story, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the characters doing things that I would have done. I just loved the normal news of it too.

E. Carter doesn’t just write for love, she writes for awareness too. This story could have been some much more simpler but she added a dimension that showcased what love means as well.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and was pleasantly surprised by its beauty. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Top notch!
