*** I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. ***

So when I saw this on BookSprout, I wanted to get it to see as to why Chance was doing this childhood promise and where it would lead. I ended on the same damn rollercoaster he did with Erin/Eva.  Erin becomes his music teacher and teaches him guitar lessons but later he finds out that she is in a band and has a sexy seductive voice with a persona named Eva onstage. They have this connection and chemistry that is there whether she is Erin or Eva but she doesn’t want to admit that and is in denial and it drives both the reader, their hearts, and libidos insane.

For the for most of the book I didn’t know if I wanted to laugh, yell or cry. I was just all over the place, really. I think I was off my rocker just as much as they were because I didn’t know if they were going to end up together and I was like “you are being so damn stupid right now!!” There were so many twists and turns in the book , I kept waiting for someone to say ” you have reached your destination” but then another twist would come and I’d be like what? Didn’t see that coming…

Okay so there were some dark themes in this book as well that made it more real. That included violence, drugs, alcohol abuse etc. Some things were hinted at like possibly prostitution and gangs (drug dealers). Or at least that is what I got from it. I think these parts of the book just made it more real and lifelike. This is what happens in the background of the music industry so I don’t see why it wouldn’t be in this story. I was happy it was in there. It shows what path some musicians take, albeit the wrong one, but it is one of the paths. Let’s get real, some regular joes do this too sometimes not just in the music industry. I like that Adams is writing about this. It is good to show awareness along with the romance. Bravo, my friend, bravo.

I loved this book so I am giving it the 5 stars it deserves.

1. I JUST GOT HIT BY A DEER – character having the worst day ever

Harry Potter or Ron Weasley, I feel like they need a break, please?

Product Details

2. STARS HOLLOW – wildly eccentric cast

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins and/or Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children By Ransom Riggs

Product DetailsProduct Details

Both good books, haven’t completely finished Ransom Riggs book yet though because I keep forgetting to start reading it again. Random thought, I know. Have finished Hex Hall by the way.

3. COFFEE – a book you’re addicted to/a character w/ an addiction

That would have to be Vishous, from Lover Unbound by J. R. Ward because he is addicted to taking care of others even at the cost of his own health. He is a man of worth, like they like to say in that series. That is such a beautiful thing, to see him be so selfless. He is most definitely one of my favorite characters from The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series but also just in general.

Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #5)

4. SOMEONE DEVIL EGGED BY CAR?! – great act of revenge

I’d have to say Carrie by Stephen King. She is a poor thing even with all the things that happen. Oh boy.

5. MR. MEDINA – an illicit affair

The Scarlet Letter Thrift Study Edition (Dover Thrift Study Edition) by [Hawthorne, Nathaniel]

Having an affair with a man of God is definitely bad, neither party should have done so. Plus the shaming only goes to the women because the man does not come forward among other things. This book just makes me sad. AND a kid was made from it. What the hell people? ugh. The kid didn’t deserve that life wondering why people were looking and judging. Giving me all of the damn feels.

6. KIM’S ANTIQUES – a world you’d be afraid to enter

Hmm, I think this one is obvious.

7. HARVARD VS. YALE – character who needs to make a life-changing decision

Well, who else better than Jonas. Okay I still need to read this but I know he has to make a decision so don’t slap my wrist about putting this on here when I haven’t read the book yet.

8. LUKE’S DINER – a comfort read

9. AM I CRYING OR LAUGHING? – a book that messed with your emotions

Product DetailsProduct Details

I love these two books so much but whew! They make you cry your heart out and then laugh and then do that cycle all over again. And when I looked up these images there is a third book out now! I read these years ago so there wasn’t a third book out so I am Pumped. YOU GUYS!!! A THIRD book though. wow. I’m gonna go crazy over in a corner now. Thanks.

10. EMILY – the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge)

Product Details

I’m only saying this because Rose is very headstrong, sassy and takes no shit.

11. LORELAI AND RORY – favorite family dynamic

Product Details

The Weasley’s – I mean come on! Who doesn’t love them?

12. I PUSHED HIM IN THE LAKE! – a book you’d throw in a lake

Product Details

I know I keep talking about this book in other posts, but I really hate this book so I can’t feel remorse if it gets to the bottom of the lake and no one sees it again. Please happen! Please PLEASE!!! My mom said she would rescue it but I never said what lake I’d throw it in. Also I would totally add weights so it would sink really fast and stay down.  Because I’m cruel like that, cue evil laugh.

13. 1000 YELLOW DAISIES – favorite romance

17. HE’D BETTER HAVE A MOTORCYCLE! – your book crush

Product Details

Both Daniel and Mason and if you read it you would know why because damn.  Damn. 

 

18. IT’S REPETITIVE AND REDUNDANT – a book that could have been shorter

Product Details

Yeah, I feel like it could have been shorter, I guess I just wasn’t as much of a fan as I thought I would be which is sad.

19. KIRK – the weirdest book you’ve ever read

 

I read this book called Subject19 and it was the weirdest book and I was traumatized and didn’t know what the fuck to think or do when I was done with it. It was the worst thing ever, I felt so bad for the characters it was fucked up. Worst book ever. Never again.  There was multiple rapes, torture, murders and other horrible things. I ended up thinking that the author was messed up and a little sick in the head to do things to characters like that. Making me wonder how the hell this book was even published and how it got to where I could get it, The only reason I finished the book was so I could make sure that at least some of the characters made it out of that hell hole alive. I mean, that’s what I imagine hell to be like, it was that bad.

20. IT’S A LIFESTYLE. IT’S A RELIGION – that one book that means more to you than any other

Product Details

Did you really think it could be anything else? come on now.


 

What book would YOU throw into the lake?
