Your Rhythm by Katia Rose

newarcbannerblurbyourrhythmYou know what they say: save a snare, bang a drummer.

Kay Fischer is well aware of what they say, and she intends to ignore it completely.

After her first step into the world of music journalism ended with a screw-up so royal it deserved a crown, Kay’s been struggling to re-stack the building blocks of her career. Salvation comes in the form of Sherbrooke Station, the latest alt-rock craze to grace Montreal’s legendary music scene.

A front page feature on the band everyone’s talking about seems like a foolproof shot at success, even after Kay meets their drummer. Matt Pearson might have a smile sexy enough to be the eighth deadly sin and a passion for music so powerful it makes her heart ache, but Kay’s got things under control.

She’s a professional, goddammit, and a professional would not get tongue-tied over a source, even a source who’s a six-foot, tattooed rock god with an affinity for tight jeans.

A professional would not find herself opening her door at an hour long past midnight to pull said source inside and lead him to her bed.

No, that’s not at all what a professional would do.

‘Your Rhythm’ is part of the Sherbrooke Station Quartet, a series of steamy rock star standalones from the author of ‘Latte Girl’ and ‘Thigh Highs.’

authorkatiaroseKatia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.

reviewDrums conceptual image.

First, please ignore the fact that I can’t spell Rhythm or use spell check on the graphics.

This book was different, for me, when reading Rock Star romances. Usually I read romances where the girl is a nobody(in terms of fame, YOU ALL MATTER), and the guy is a famous Rock Star bored with the groupies. They’re usually drug addicts, or recovering addicts and the girl they fall for is the one that heals them, or whatever. There is 100% nothing wrong with this trope. It can be enjoyable, if done the right way. However, Katia Rose depicts something different and fresh.

Matt Pearson is the drummer for a new and upcoming band, Sherbrook Station. He is responsible, not into using drugs but instead really focused on making the best music he can make with his band, his brothers. He meets Kay Fischer when his band mate, Ace, forgets to go to an interview so Matt goes in his place. BOOM fireworks! He recognizes that Kay is attractive, and he wants to see her again, so he makes sure they have to. Although underhanded, he also recognizes Kay wouldn’t call him unless absolutely necessary.

Kay Fischer has been burned, badly, by the industry and her ex. She is a reporter, who always loved music and wanted to tell the story of the musicians. When she started to dig around in the wrong music group, she is working for a newspaper where she can hide and lick her wounds. From the minute she meets Matt, she feels a connection to him, one she tries to bury. But when she’s charged with writing a story on the band, Matt and Kay work in close quarters.

One of my favorite things about this story, something that will be my favorite in any book I ever read, is the level of respect these two have for each other. They fight with each other, and for each other, but there is a deeper level of respect for both their professions. Kay wants to hide their relationship because it could cause her to lose her already tattered reputation, and although Matt would rather scream from the rooftops that he is with Kay Fischer, he doesn’t pressure her for more than she can give. And it’s not the “I WANT TO SHAKE THIS GIRL” kind of “this is all I can give” it’s one that you understand her reservations, and her fear of putting her job, and her heart, on the line. And Kay, though she didn’t like Sherbrooke Station at first, comes to love not only the band, but Matt’s dedication to his band and his music. And she would do anything to make sure he keeps his love of music.

This book was amazing. I had my reservations in the beginning, but I loved Kay from the start. And from the line “I swear a lot when I’m cold” because if that isn’t me I don’t know what is. There was just enough drama, and push and pull, to keep me thoroughly invested in both Kay and Matt, without wanting to gag or pull my hair out of my head. After reading this, I read Thigh Highs by Katia Rose, in hopes that it wasn’t a one time thing (and also because I follow Katia on Instagram and won a copy in a giveaway- so you should follow her too), and I was not disappointed. After I write the reviews I need to write for a bunch of books… I’m going to download all the books I can by her!

The only thing that brought this book down for me in stars, is that there is a bunch of French in it, which is understandable since it’s set in Canada, but there were no translations! I love some mix of languages in a book, but I know not a word of French. And I tried looking stuff up, but it took away from the flow of the novel, and if I just ignored the French, I felt I was missing something in the dialogue.

You might say it’s poor form to throw the bride over your shoulder caveman-style and run off with her, especially if it’s not your wedding.


 
Whoops.
It’s her wedding day. I’m not the groom. Oh, but I’m going to be…
 
The world may call me a King and a gentleman, but there’s nothing gentle about me. I’ve fought like hell to get to where I am, and these rough hands want one thing and one thing only – to hold her and never let her go.
 
She’s my obsession – my addiction. Blonde, blue-eyed, innocent and tempting, with lips that beg to be tasted and curves that were made to press against me.

You see, the rumors about my royal staff aren’t tall tales. She deserves a real man. A better man. King Milton just isn’t the right fit for her.

How do you forgive someone when they cheated on you? When they broke the promises they made to you? When you and the love of your life are falling apart? Can you find love with the person that broke you again?

I hate cheating. If a book has cheating in it, I’m done. It gives me anxiety and hives. I once read a book with cheating in it, and had anxiety for WEEKS, and DNF, but then read the second book to make sure they were ok. I’ve never been cheated on, but it’s a trigger for me and I start freaking out. So after reading Corrupt, I knew I had Defile waiting for me to read and I got nervous. Nowhere in the blurb does it say there was cheating. But Declan and Tatum have history, history that goes back to them being seven years old. They get together young, and Declan and the band make it big when they’re still young. While Tatum is struggling to still be an individual, Declan is caving to the pressures of stardom. In Corrupt, it already says that Deck cheated on Tatum, so I’m not giving that away, but I won’t say what happened. All I’ll say is that I wanted to CRY SO BAD. But it didn’t give me anxiety. I don’t know why (maybe because Jessica Prince is amazing?)

Ten years later, Tatum and Declan are in the same room together, after not being in the same room since it happened. My heart absolutely broke for Tatum, but she made the best of herself. She found who she was, and I think she needed to be away from Declan to discover that. And Deck, WHO I WANTED TO PUNCH IN THE FACE, needed to grow up and find himself in the industry. When Deck sees Tatum again, he knows he needs her back in his life: permanently. He just has to get her on board with it.

I love Tatum’s strength in this book. She doesn’t just forgive Declan, and it takes her awhile to talk with him about what happened. She didn’t let Declan bulldoze her life, didn’t let him become her life. When she did talk to him about what happened, and she decided to try and forgive him, she didn’t continuously bring it up. After the worked it out, they continued to work on it. She did what she had to do to live without him, and she lived and thrived without him. Did she have insecurities? Yes. Did she let them over rule her life? No. Was she afraid? Yes. Did she get jealous? Yes, but she didn’t accuse him of sleeping with everyone or bring it up to hurt him after that.

I don’t know if I could be as strong as Tatum was. I’d have probably just stabbed my man.

Declan can be a huge jerk. He knows it, and so does everyone else around him. With out Tatum he was just living, but he smartened up. When he had the chance to get her back, he did. Declan had a lot of strength too. He had changed over the last ten years, some things for the better, others for the worse. He doesn’t make the same mistakes twice (THANK GOD CAN I JUST SAY), but he is also able to recognize when he’s being over bearing, recognize when he’s losing Tatum this time around. He stops taking her for granted.

I normally hate rock star romances, but I will be continuing this series. I’m already looking forward to the next book! The guys in Civil Corruption are messed up, and I can’t wait to see them stop messing up. (Plus, series like this are like double epilogues. I get glimpses into the other couples!) I’m going to shut up now, but just know that this book is absolutely amazing, and heartbreaking all at the same time.

I was nothing, a washed up, useless nobody to them. The angered look that permanently etched my face wasn’t new for any of them. The resting bitch face was something that defined me, Davina, the spoiled, unhappy, selfish brat. I suppose they were right about that. I really wasn’t a happy go lucky girl. I didn’t carry around a cheery disposition. I didn’t grow up showered with love and affection or dolls and ponies. I wasn’t a pampered princess like that.
 
No. I was raised with wolves.
 

 

 
EXCERPT
 
His voice rose from the crystal but I could not see who was speaking. It was comforting and familiar. A sound I hadn’t heard in a very long time. 
 
“Father?” I whispered.
 
His ghostly figure appeared before me, standing in the center of the floating petals. His form was barely visible. His presence was only allowed because of the magic that the ritual possessed. He stood tall and proud. His jaw was firm and his eyes were set, the face of a warrior, but he had the tender smile of a father and sparkling eyes full of pride.
 
I found myself leery, gawking at the figure that stood before me, I wasn’t sure how to react to seeing my dead father materializing in front of me. I hardly remembered him or knew him, but deep down the girl I once was still longed for my father. Mark had been the only father I truly knew, but there was my very own, full of pride for his only daughter. I didn’t know what to say or how to react. Was it meant to be a happy reunion or was I dreaming?
 
“Father … I … “
 
“You have accepted your fate. Your destiny has just begun,” he said, not moving towards me or stretching his arms our for a long awaited embrace.

On the Rocks by Gillian Jones Review

blurb

ontherocks
*** SPECIAL NOTE ***
Dear Reader,
Mental Illness is a growing concern in our world today. On the Rocks is about surviving the aftermath of suicide, and believing in love again. Levi and Braunwyn’s love story is inspired by events that impacted the lives of people I care about deeply. With all of the research and ongoing concerns with mental health, I’ve decided to try and do something to bring awareness and light to this growing concern. I will be donating 10% of all pre-order and release week profits to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
Thank you in advance for your support with this endeavour.
Gillian xx

Braunwyn
Four years ago losing the love of my life almost destroyed me.
Years of being labeled and looked upon with disdain by everyone in my hometown almost wrecked me.
Four years ago I became a mother and together we were enough…Until I met him.
He wanted to rebuild my broken–I just didn’t know how to let him.
This is my story of how one man’s love changed everything I thought I knew about life, love and myself.
But in the end, can Levi Eddison prove to be my restoration?

Levi
Everything in my world changed the day Braunwyn Daniels walked into my pub.
She was a woman of many contradictions. I recognized the happiness and sorrow each fighting its way to the surface from deep within.
I was drawn to her immediately.
Behind her long legs, chestnut brown hair and beautiful eyes laid a damaged soul.
I needed to change that–I just didn’t know how.
This is my story of how I met a broken girl and vowed to make her whole.
And in the end, it turns out I knew nothing about true happiness until Braunwyn Daniels let me love her.

review

ontherocks2

“Welcome to Club Goner.” Wait, me or Levi? First of all, super trigger warning. This book deals with a really difficult topic, in detail, which may be hard for readers to deal with. It is serious, and Gillian doesn’t make light of anything that happened, but details the life of someone trying to come to terms with after an event. I don’t want to spoil it, (it’s right in the prologue so it hits hard and fast, THANKS) but I promise you, it is worth it.

There’s something special about single parent romances that make them my go to romance. Something about someone actively choosing to be in a child’s life, showering love onto a child that isn’t theirs by blood but theirs in their heart, is something that warms me to the core every time. I put off reading this book because I have so much to do, (and Jane the Virgin on Netflix got me hooked) but someone *cough Gillian Jones cough* told me Levi was so swoonworthy, I had to. So I did. And OH. MY. GOD. he is. He really is.

Braunwyn is surviving after losing her first love, and the father of her daughter. She is going to school, therapy, living with her grandmother, trying to be a good mom, but she’s not really living. She applies to a job at Pub Fiction, and when Levi walks in to interview he is gone. He is hooked on Braunwyn, and she’s hooked on him. Because of her past, and her daughter, Levi recognizes she’s not ready to move on from the friend zone, so he puts ever effort into making Braunwyn his.

AND LORD HAVE MERCY, when they call “Trump” it is on like Donkey Kong. I thought Ryker was dirty? He didn’t own his own pub. Levi and Braunwyn started as co-workers, moved to friendship, and eventually become a couple. Even while they’re “friends” these two share some really steamy scenes. Like, sit in front of the fan with a glass of cold wine, steamy. (#GillianJonesNeedsJesus)

One of my favorite things about Gillian Jones is the way her characters recognize they need to heal and share certain things about their past before they can fully give their hearts to another person. The two characters truly become friends before they get involved romantically. Of course there is attraction there, and their are feelings that definitely go past friendship, but the two respect each other as people before becoming an item.

Plus her men are all alpha-growly-“do this or I will put you over my shoulder”-do anything-to-protect-what’s-mine kinda guys.

Her heroines are strong in their own right, living and breathing without the help of a man(imagine that!), but with help and support from those they love, they move from surviving to living. Her men don’t sleep around on their girls, and they show their emotions. And her books make me want to talk about them ALL NIGHT.

What do you do when you find out your whole life was a lie?

That your husband really wasn’t your husband but someone else’s.

That the vows you made to each other were simply empty promises.

You pick up and move to the country to start fresh.

When life hands you limes, you make sure you have tequila because your life is about to get stirred up.

reviewperfect love story2

I don’t know if I hate Natasha, or love her. Every time I read one of her novels I feel like, emotionally, I need ice cream, tissues, and a book that has only laughs and no drama. The best is I’m a sucker for single parent books, and Natasha writes some of the best I’ve ever read. This one included.

The prologue to this book broke me. I wanted to cry when Hailey found out her husband had died. But then his secrets are exposed and I wanted to die. For Hailey. Hailey is strong, and I know she’s a lot stronger than me, because I don’t know what I would have done if I were in her shoes. Her family, her support system, are phenomenal in helping her not only move on from the death of her husband, but also with not allowing her to fall into a depression she wouldn’t be able to get out of. The first step to moving on from Eric is moving out of the house.

Hailey moves into a house that is literally falling apart because the renter, Jensen Walker, has no idea it’s been rented out. His grandmother rented it out, and he hates it. That was the house he, his wife, and his daughter were supposed to live their HEA in. If his wife hadn’t cheated and left him with his daughter. So he’s let the house sit in disrepair because he hates it, and hates that Hailey is renting it. He is a total a-hole to Hailey too, simply because she’s living in the house.

So far, for everyone of my reviews for Natasha Madison, I think I stated that I was wrecked in it. BUT Y’ALL I’M WRECKED. GONE. DEAD. GUTTED. This book was an emotional roller coaster. From wanting to strangle Jensen, to wanting to cry for Hailey, I was all over the place. I wanted them both to be happy, and I wanted Jensen to get his head out of his butt and realize that the best thing ever was RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM. Hailey is kind, caring, forgiving, and she’s also lost. With the help of Jensen, Mila, the Walker clan, the Williams clan, and the ocean, Hailey heals herself. With the help of Hailey, Jensen learns to let go of the bitterness he had towards his ex.

AND THEIR LOVE IS SO AMAZING. Go get this book now. Pre-order it. Set you calendars for the release date (May 1st). I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

CAN.
NOT.
WAIT.
