Book Description

Maddie Neumann died the day she pulled away from her parents' house determined to make her dreams come true. She wasn't the perfect little princess she'd been raised to be, all she wanted to do was rock. Everything Maddie was tucked away in a box to allow for her re-birth as Rain Maxwell; a badass rocker who answered to no one and lived by her own set of rules.

Rain's world is shattered with one phone call from her estranged family. No sooner does she get home than everything she thought she knew about her life starts changing.

Colton Bradford knew there was something special about Rain the moment they first met. Unfortunately, she had a hard and fast rule about dating a bandmate so he was stuck in the friends zone. When Rain is going through her own personal hell, will Colton finally be able to make her see how he feels and convince her to take a chance on love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed Tragedy ROCKS! March 16, 2013
By Rmiller
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first book that I have read where the point of view of the main character is the female lead singer in a rock band. You sometimes forget when you go to a concert that the people who are performing have real problems and issues that they leave behind for a few hours when they get on stage to perform. So much happens in this book and Rain is AWESOME! Rain is a strong willed rocker who knows what she wants. Colton (who is also a part of the band) will go above and beyond to show Rain how much she means to him. I love how the author creates the characters and draw you into the book. This is the second book I have read by HB Heinzer and once I started reading "Blessed Tragedy" I didn't want to stop. I kept thinking...just one more chapter and then I read another and another. I didn't want this book to be over. I found HB Heinzer's Facebook Page [...] and saw that "Blessed Fate" is coming out in 2013! I CAN'T WAIT for the next book in this series. You really don't want to miss this book!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockstar but not a rockstar novel March 24, 2013
By TJLMill
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rain was such a great character but don't get this book thinking you are getting a rockstar type book. Rain (Maddie) is broken and this book follows her story of recovery. Love Colt and Jon and Travis and even Jared and would expect to see future books. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Love me some Colton!!! <3 June 25, 2013
By mimi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hmmm, what can I say. Well, let me start by saying: Colton IS my new book boyfriend. He is just rocker enough that he is HOT!, but soft enough that I love how he fell for Rain and carried a torch for her for 5 years. Rain wasn't into the whole dating a band mate, so she made a very strict rule of NO! And, she stuck to in for 5 years, until Colt was able to "talk" her into it. Not that there wasn't some serious flirting and also a little snuggling.....
So, the rest is obviously, the struggles with this situation as well as some other stuff. But, basically, this book was just so hot and sweet and..... just lovely. As lovely as it can be with a a bunch of rockers. :)
And, after you read Blessed Tragedy, you must check out Blessed Fate, which is Colton's take on the whole scene, but also a lot more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blessed....... March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked how easy it was to get into this story. The characters were just like regular people who happen to make their living by being in s band.

Colton and Rain/Maddie have great chemistry throughout. The twists and turns of some key players made me want to pull my hair out at times but all in all was a very enjoyable story.

I liked how there was a base to their togetherness and not just about great sex. Definitely take a chance on this story. I am looking forward to book two seen through Colton's point of view. I love when an author lets us see what the man is feeling and thinking. 4.5 stars......

I received a free copy of this book as part of the blog tour in exchange for an honest review

Due to explicit sexual content and language, I'd recommend this book for mature readers (+18).

Blessed Tragedy is the captivating story of Maddie Neumman -a normal and good girl raised to go to collage and have a normal job- and Rain Maxwell -a hardcore chick who is the lead singer of a rock band. The thing is, they're the same person. After graduation, Maddie decided to leave everything behind to pursue her dreams of having a music career and with that she broke her family's hearts. When her mothers dies, she has to come home and leave the only family she's known for the past five years -her band mates of Blessed Tragedy- to reconnect with the family she left behind all those years ago. Expecting to find the resentful stares she grown used to, she goes to say her last goodbyes to a mother who never understood her, but what's waiting for her is acceptance. The problem is... now that her family has come to terms with who Maddie is, can she accept herself? Does she even know who she is? On top of that, she's getting really close to his band mate, Colton, and even when she had sworn to herself she would never be involved with a band member in that way, she can't fight her feelings anymore and Colton has made clear that he feels the same way. Can the band survive the turmoil of emotions that this new relationship will bring?

Maddie is a complex character, she's going through so much that you feel inclined to forgive her outburst and childness but sometimes you just want to shake her -hard- and make her see that she's the one in the wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Romance Novel that felt like so much MORE May 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Blessed Tragedy is a great suspenseful romance about a girl struggling to discover who she is. It sucks you right in from the start and doesn't let go.

Madeline "Maddie" Neumann graduated high school, left home without a word, and reinvented herself as Rain Maxwell, hardcore rocker chick. The story picks up just after Rain learns her mother has died. She's about to head home for the funeral, and you quickly learn the dynamics of Rain's realtionship with her other bandmates, which are all guys, as she's preparing to leave. The guys all treat Rain like she's family, but she has a special relationship with fellow bandmate Colton. He's been in love with her for a long time, but Rain is completely against mixing business with pleasure this way. The boys end up following Rain home where she begins to struggle with her identity. She also starts to find it impossible to continue to ignore what her relationship with Colton has become.

Heinzer did an EXCELLENT job developing all the characters. I felt like I knew them well, and their actions and dialogue always reflected their personalities. Rain's character was explosive, and it was reflected in her very strong language, and the explicit scenes described.

The plot was persistently intriguing and suspenseful. At times I wanted to reach in and smack Rain over her decisions, and I would be on the edge of my seat in fear of the consequences of those decisions. The build up got so intense that I felt sure there would be an explosion. The only thing I personally would have changed was the ending. I was pleased with it, but it didn't seem to have the bang the rest of the book built up to. I wouldn't have changed the end result of the plot, just maybe the way the end was presented.
