Gorgeous slow burn rock star romance from Beth

Impossible Things Ebook
Impossible Things
by Beth Bolden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was lucky to beta read this for Beth and I have to say that I fell completely in love with Benji and Diego, even though Benji also frustrated me to the ends of the Earth!

Complicated, complex characters wrapped around a fairly simple plot which focuses down on the difficulties between transitioning from friends who’ve been in love and pining for the other for 10 years, into actually being partners.

Added outside forces bring tension to keep the pace moving along rapidly and, the more the story progresses, the more Benji’s deep desire to be successful is uncovered and the layers peeled back while Diego struggles with how to protect his daughter amid the increased publicity surrounding Star Shadow.

Everything about this romance works for me, it switches from slow burn to a powerful volcano of emotional heat and all points in between!

I’ve loved both books in this series and they’ve been radically different but both utterly brilliant.

Now I’m hoping that Felix finally gets his Max eh Beth?

Viper lives up to the dangers of his name in this second instalment

VIPER FOR WEB
Viper
by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Chapter two of the Halo and Viper journey focuses on the development of the ever growing feelings between the two men.

For Halo, things couldn’t be better, but Viper’s past means he’s not so easily swayed by the emotional impact spending time with the band’s new frontman is bringing.

At times I forget there’s a ten year age gap between them as Halo always seems way more mature than his 23 years and Viper does his best impression of a mardy teenager frequently.

His grumpy attitude does come with valid reasons though and I liked that Brooke and Ella brought more depth to his character than just the bad boy persona.

Halo’s not willing to just be shoved aside though and there’re words said, and actions taken, that I was really hoping wouldn’t lead me to chuck my Kindle across the room.

Fortunately it’s just a stumble on their path towards happiness and I was very pleased with where things ended up.

Only a month to go before the final book is out and we get to see just how they’re going to deal with all the pressures of the relationship and the band’s success.

As an aside, yes the narrative is as hot as the cover model just in case you were wondering 😉

 Blurb

Massive world tours. Over a hundred million albums sold. Groupies galore.

Every day is a party for Viper and the guys of TBD, the biggest rock band in the world. But it all comes to a screeching halt when the lead singer walks out of the studio one day and never comes back.

Ear-blistering vocals. Butchered lyrics. Fame chasers.

After months of lackluster auditions, Viper, the lead guitarist and resident bad boy of the group, is ready to find solace in the bottom of a bottle. Time’s running out and the pressure’s on to find a new singer, but it isn’t until an angel walks through the door that the band’s prayers are answered.

Charismatic. Talented. Magic behind the mic. Halo is everything they’ve been looking for.

With a voice to match his stunning good looks, it isn’t long before Viper’s taking notice. But there are several reasons this is a bad idea:

  1. Interpersonal relationships in the band are discouraged
  2. Viper has already broken rule #1—big mistake
  3. Halo is straight

Too bad Viper’s body isn’t listening to his head—at least not the one on his shoulders. But you can’t fake chemistry, not onstage and certainly not off it, and Viper and Halo? They have it in spades.

As both men try to resist the fire blazing between them, and the band is forced to reinvent themselves, it’ll be a complicated rise back to the top. But from the ashes of what was, something beautiful is born. Something better. And when the world finally sees Halo stretch his wings, they’ll discover what it’s like to fall for an angel.
