Re s gonna be a book about him so Sawyer s a lesbian and only just starting to come out and explore her own sexuality I loved that she was given space to figure things out Urban Shocker in an environment that supported her and that some of her naive assumptions were corrected by other charactersOn the subject of tacklingmportant The Secret Life Of Evie Hamilton issues the story also addresses sexismn the music The Death and Life of Mal Evans industry whichs something Vix has struggled with over the course of her careerThe only aspect of the book that felt slightly Sikh History 5 (1926-1947) iffy to me was the background ace rep Connor one of the other band memberss on the page ace Although The Silver Shadow it s never specified whether he s aro as well he s definitely presented as having nonterest Murder on the Thirty-first Floor (Inspector Jensen in romantic OR sexual relationships As someone whodentifies on the ace spectrum but not aro this kinda read as euating asexuality and aromanticismwhich was frustrating Asexuality Haunted England is such a nuanced and diversedentity and this rep felt sorta reductive Again Connor s sexuality The Whores Asylum is v much a background thingn regards to the overall story but The Second Time I Saw You (Oxford Blue, it did nag at me as something that needed clarificationbetter explanation mayben future booksOverall this was a fun story about music and soft gay girls that I highly recommend to anyone looking for a good ff romance I received a copy of this book via NetGalley The Last Lullaby in exchange for an honest

honestly and criticallyRead for the URR 2017 New Year s Reading Challenge prompt Rock Star Romance 2910 Unexpectedly fantastic I m very wary of Netgalley books having had some unfortunate experiences with clunky writing and dreadful editingn the past so I started this with the trepidation from past experience Cant and Wont in one ear and a five star recommendation from a trusted friendn the other Thank goodness I listened to the friend The Dirty Game instead of past experience It didn t hurt that Avon Gales an accomplished author with a number of Received this ARC from Netgalley and Riptide Publishing for an honest reviewI ve wanted to read this book since I first saw The Big Love it June 13 2017 listed as upcoming or whatevert The Darkness and the Thunder (The Great War, is Riptide calls their books that ll appear sometimen the future The book looked super Stadium Chase interesting Course I think I saw the second book first which was something of a letdown because I noticedt looked Dangerous Love interesting then noticed that the lead charactern that one was a man then noticed this one had two women as main characters and yes both have their point of views on display Riptide seems to like series that The Tide include multiple layers of the LGBT spectrum but that s neither here nor there let s get back to this specific book Right were was I Oh yeah I ve wanted to read this book for four months now But there s a certain worry that develops of course when you aren that situation Both The Winter of the Lions in wanting to read a book andn noticing that the book s n one of those mixed gender series heh that sounds weird I meant FF books with MM books with occasional MF mixed Nothing Lasts Forever (Battle Born MC Book 2) in with one or the other or both being transgender plus to ruin that use of both that started this sentence I kind of have a hatelove relationship with books related to music So to recap this brilliant part of the review 1 wanted to read this book long time 2 some worry based on that and other thingsThe book Victoria Vix Vincents about oh 25 or 26 years of age she was a high school senior when the other main character Sawyer Bell was a freshman The One Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth in high school whichn most USA high schools would make them 3 to 4 years apart Daisy in age some high schools merge junior high and high schoolnto one school so there d be a 5 to 6 year gap between the lowest level and top but I don t think that s the case here Gah Let s try this againVix Vincent The Asylum is a 2526 year old professional musician with a band named after herself She s had this band for years now about 8 at least maybe ten there was a comment that she s been performing since she was 16 though I don t think that literally meant the bands that old The band has gotten a certain reputation but t s nowhere near the top Or even really the middle But they are slowly Yesterdays Weather inching up Playing larger venues Headlining sometimes sometimes performing as the opening band All of thiss Their Virgin Secretary (Masters of Ménage, important because the bands just about to go on the road again The River in about 2 weeks Basically for the summer But their fiddle player went and got himself married and then got himself a baby to look after ands therefore taking time away from the band maybeprobably permanently So they need a new fiddle player Which On a Cold Road is where the book opens with Vix and her bandmates watching poor performer after poor performer play one after the other And getting super depressed Then another one appears wearing a sundress and looking maybe 16 actually not sure how young she looked but they did askf she was old enough to be thereThat next up auditioning for the band Taming Your Outer Child: Overcoming Self-Sabotage and Healing from Abandonment iswas Sawyer Bell FiddlerViolinist She looks real young I m probably overdoing that part and when she talkst s n a light barely heard whisper The band kind of groans but wave her on to perform Which she does She plays something classical With authority Blows away the band members with how good she plays They try to trip her up by throwing out some band names and asking her to play something less classical rock and she does Masterfully She Sawyer then mentions that she s a student at Juilliard n between Junior and Senior years at college One thing leads to another and the 21 year old Darkstalker (Wings of Fire: Legends, is a member of the band for the summer Oh and for those reading along she also has her point of view presentedThere s one flashbackn this book occurs roughly about where we are The Fairytale Hairdresser and Father Christmas information wise near the beginning of the book actually that 7 years earlier might have occurred twicen rapid succession seeming as The Twenty-Third Man (Mrs. Bradley, if one flashback The flashback takes us back 7 years when both Sawyer and Vix weren high school And show us readers that Vix and Sawyer had actually meet before once back The Handbag Book Of Girly Emergencies in high schoolThere s much humor travel adventures and getting to know you explorations of a romantic nature Oh and sex graphicn nature And uite fun for me personally to read since there was so much humor mixed The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop in to those scenes I like humor I like the mix of humor and sex Fun timesRight so books outstanding from beginning until the ever present need for conflict rears Sweet Liberty its ugly head and eruptsn conflict Um poorly worded Well no matter Conflict point was reached Things got rough this Smack is a romance book though not a tragedy so Great super readable enjoyable book 999% of the time I really liked the two main characters Vix and Sawyer not 100% sure I particularly liked the others who popped up like there s just something dislikable about Jeff bandmate and about Sawyer s parents mostly the father and the jokes he was cracking during an emotional momentRating 488September 20 2017 Sometimest takes a while to find your own music but believe me Night of the Living Dead Christian its so wortht when you do What a adorbfest this book was Likable leads with great chemistry and easy banter Vix and Sawyer s conflicts actually made sense and. Secret high school crush The New World Order is just an added bonus Especially when Vix kisses her one night after a show and they discover that the stagesn’t the only place they have chemistryBut the tour won’t last forever and as the summer winds down Sawyer has to make a tough decision about her future and what t means to follow her heart.

ARC received via NetGalley n exchange for an honest review I seem to be Halflings (Halflings, in the minority on this one but this did nothing for me I m not usually a fan of stories with young MCs and though this couldn t be categorised as young adult because Vixs 25 and Sawyer 21 the characters read like they were both college age It d usually take me less than a day to read a book this size but I put this down several times so The Big Snuggle-Up it took a few days to get throught The premise Too Close for Comfort (Jo Birmingham is that Vixs the lead singer of a band she s also bisexual Sawyer Trauma is staring the final year of Juilliard at the end of summer and knew Vixn high school and sort of harboured a crush on her She joins Vix s band as a fiddle player for the summer tour The two hit The Dark Lord Trilogy (Star Wars: The Dark Lord Trilogy, it off and start a relationship There s also plenty of secondary charactersn the form of the other band members and members of other bands but only Jeff Vix s ex gets the most fleshed out In all honestly the character development of all of the characters was lacking I liked Sawyer than Vix but not that much As an aside I m not bi but have friends who are and one of their main gripes Speech-making and Presentation Made Easy is people always believing that they re sexually promiscuous and will sleep with anyone and will always be up for a threesome and the lack of positive bi character representationn stories This book perpetuates that myth not because Vix s character Happiness the Mindful Way is described as having slept with both men and women but because she mentions having multiple threesomes and the other bi character Jax who I believes featured Gorilla, Monkey Ape in the seuel also offers to have a threesome with the main characters even though one of thems a lesbian A First Book of Jewish Bible Stories ironically Vix calls him out on his bisexual stereotyping I m by no means saying that no bisexuals should have threesomes butt s a tired trope n stories featuring bi characters and I could have lived without t here So all The Bully in all the relationship between the two did nothing for me there s too much back and forth about Vix being bi whether their relationship will affect the band Sawyer lying to her parents etc and at no point did I believe they actually had the emotional maturity to overcome these obstacles When they did get together at the end I absolutely did not believe they would still be together even a few years later I guess I d give this 25 stars but I m rounding down there were just too many things I didn t like This books being rereleased under a new publisher The Regiment it will be available again for purchase 17th June 2019 I still highly recommendt so be sure to check The Kingdom (Fargo Adventure, it out whent s available againReview also on my blogTwitterI received an arc from the publisher via Netgalley Johnny Came Home in exchange for an honest reviewIf you re a fan of music and romance The Love Song of Sawyer Bell doesn t disappointn either category Almost the entire book s the tour Vix and Sawyer are on together and t s The Complete Idiots Guide to Raising Chickens implementednto the story very well They re both very musical characters and their passion for The Complete Idiots Guide to Finance for Small Business it brought a lot of personality to them and contributed to their romance Before the events of the book we find out Sawyer and Vix had one chance encountern high school This His Guarded Heart is something Vix forgot about but was something Sawyer remembered For Sawyer the encounter lead to her first crushPart of the books Sawyer realising she s a lesbian and t s done extremely well There was a little denial but also a lot of uncertainty She d had a boyfriend previously but not one she had romantic feelings for When she joins Vix s band she soon realises she s a lesbian due to her feelings for Vix Vix herself The Goodness of Dogs is bi and she s very proud of that which was also great to see There was talk about sexism that existedn the music Everybody Matters industry Mostly how there s respect for male musicians and how men get away with sleeping with fans while women wouldn t I loved both Vix and Sawyer Sawyer was a little reserved at times but comesnto her own She attends Juilliard but The Slaughter is having doubts due to the stress oft Vix Three Mothers, Three Daughters is a very strong character andt the type to make sure her voice Three by Atiq Rahimi is heard But she also has some doubts and rarely shows herself to be vulnerable Overallf you like music and romance the book will bring you both with no short supply If you substitute bass player for all violin fiddle player references Magical Garden 2018 Calendar: Coloring Meditations Inspired by Nature in this book substitute Julliard for LSU and reduce the angst by about 50% thiss the story of my early 20 s No joke And I have to say life on the road The Pages in a kinda sorta semi famous rock bands pretty much EXACTLY like this SeriouslyI m usually a touch wary to read LGBT novels by straight authors even so when they write not only ff books but also mm and mf but Gale totally pulled this one off It s high on the angstdrama scale but I really loved being able to lose myself Hija de la fortuna in the music scene for just a few hours It brought back so many fond memories Even the references to sleepingn a van The Black Widower it was a SUV pulling a trailer for us and the ever freuent stops at the laundromat made me smileAs a story this totally worked and I boughtnto t completely I think I m a bit biased just because this so closely mirrors my own life although I didn t get the HEA at the end but still My funny bone tends to be broken at the most nopportune times but even the sarcastic wit before during and after sex really worked for me The Night Listener in this one I truly enjoyedt If you love music angsty romance or just love ff romance then I think you ll really enjoy this one It s a solid 4 stars T Shirt And Genes in my bookI also want to mention again that I love how Carina Press a division of Harleuins adding and LGBT books to their lineup YEAH Side note this was previously published by Riptide and In the Electric Eden is now being re publishedMany thanks to Carina Press for providing me with an ARC copyn exchange for my honest review 35 Stars I wasn t blown away by this book but The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey it was a fun weekend read This books a re release for June under a new publisher According to Gale not much has changed from the original story While I have never read Gale before I have heard of her name since she The Reckoning (Maeve Kerrigan, is pretty bign the MM world I think Wiggins, Sherlock et le Mysterious Poison - collection Tip Tongue - A1 dcouverte - ds 10 ans it s nice to see authors like Alexis Hall KJ Charles and Gale write lesfic so I finally have a chance to try their books I almost always enjoy books about musician or artists I have no musical talent myself and to this day I completely blame my parents I had dreams of being a drummern a rock band but they would not let me play the drums because The Enchanted Wood (The Faraway Tree, it would make too much noise so I was forced to take piano lessons by a slightly scary woman with horrible breath Needless to say I enjoy a book like this where I can live vicariously through the characters The character of Sawyer for me was the star of this book Shes a young 21 trying to find her confidence and place The Soul Stylists in this world andt was fun watching her character grow The other character Vix for me wasn t uite as substantial I think Gale spent time having to defend her bisexuality than actually building up her character I get there Point of Redemption (Nordic Lords MC, is plenty of biphobia out there I just would have liked for Vix to be able to be bi and fort not to be a constant discussion I think The Virgin Soldiers if being bis treated as the norm t will hopefully just become of the norm I hope I m making sense hereI was pleasantly surprised by how much humor this book had It wasn t laugh out loud humor but witty humor that made me smile all throughout the book Gale even chose to give the sex scenes a little hum. Victoria “Vix” Vincent has only two weeks to find a replacement fiddle player for her band’s summer tour When classically trained violinist Sawyer Bell shows up for an audition Vix s thrilled Sawyer Game On (Aces Hockey, is talented gorgeous funny and excited about playingndie rock The Empress instead of Beethoven Their friendship soon blossomsnto roma.
Or And to me The Celestial Necklace it actually worked I don t recall a romance where an author added a little humor tontimate scenes before For me Part-Time Gods (DFZ it made the characters seem real And the sex scenes didn t feel like they were there just so a book could have sex scenes they were there to make the characters connect and grow closer whichs something I always appreciate I also want to mention I have a little bit of a pet peeve when Star Wars Trilogy Sourcebook Special Edition it comes to reading lyrics of made up songsn books I just don t like Eat That Frog! it and I findt to be almost uncomfortable The lyrics are almost always super cheesy I must say Secret Alpha (A is for Alpha Male, it was nice that there were no pages filled with fake song lyricsn this book The characters would sing and play there nstruments but as a reader you nterpret what kind of lyrics The characters would sometimes write down one liners that they wanted to use as a title or song lyric but that was The Complete Idiots Guide to Decluttering it It was really refreshing for a change Overall I enjoyed this read It didn t blow me away butt was fun going on the road with a semi popular rock band The romance was sweet and Sawyer was a great character The next book The Pregnancy Encyclopedia in this series has a lead male character sot s not one I m Heartland interestedn at this time but Todo Mafalda if Gale tries to write lesfic again I would readt An ARC was given to me for a honest review I was out for a wee Pride brunch over the wknd and while toasting my lady with bubs I looked over her shoulder and saw someone Hands-On Reinforcement Learning with Python: Master reinforcement and deep reinforcement learning using OpenAI Gym and TensorFlow in the corner with what I am certain was Manic Panic purple hair dye and felt like I was having a seizureThis book was ok It did not woo me by any means and I really struggled with parts oft one of which was Vix the above mentioned purple haired MC She s bisexual and boy does she ever let you know Simple Cake it I d say half the book talks aboutt and this tired me out real uick I wanted to know about her other than just her sexuality yet a point was trying to be made here She loves sex with males or females and apparently get a lot of t on the road and makes no apologies Which s fine with me but I found her to be Captain Marvel Little Golden Book immature and rather stunted emotionally not understanding her motives or humour She smoked like a chimney and really did not have many redeeming ualities that I found attractiveThe other MC violinist turned fiddle player was somewhatnteresting but at 21 her story read like a finding myself YA novel She was naive and sweet and hippie like and wore dresses with boots and was uber talented Her sweetness becameagain too much Maybe I was What Is the Story of Scooby-Doo? in a low mood when I read this book but nothing drew men She had a crush on Vix since school which Eat.
