I have never bought a book that had yet to have a review written about it so I was slightly apprehensive about purchasing it. I was wonderfully surprised and glad that I purchased it. There were a few grammatical errors but nothing too bad. I was slightly getting frustrated with Mandy for not listening to people but I got over it. The conversation dialogue structure is kind of weird and sometimes confusing but the book is still, in my opinion, thoroughly enjoyable. I thought the City Council meeting scene was very well written and had me cheering for the fiery redhead. I recommend reading this book.

At first I thought this was not going to be something I enjoyed. For starters, there were more kids involved than I prefer in my Lesfic reading. However, their roles were sweet and not overdone, so in the end they weren't a distraction. The "falling in love" was a little too quick as I'm talking just a few days, but it wasn't pushed and didn't fully come together until near the end so it worked out. And let's face it, the Uhaul joke isn't out there for lack of reason, especially when we're young. A few things weren't overly believable, considering the handicap of one of the leads, but I can hope, for all those who deal with similar issues, it's all possible. I have no experience in the world this revolves around so maybe I'm wrong, but from what I know, a little of it was far-fetched. However, it would have been difficult to make an enjoyable story where we could connect with the second lead character in a first person setting if not carried out in the manner it was and I've read another story with similar concepts regarding deafness so maybe it's all possible. The sci-fi references were perfection. Any lesbian worth her weight in gold should pick up on them, from Firefly to Dr Who to even a little Buffy if you're really paying attention and so on. Some may consider portions of the story a little cheesy, but in its own way that's part of what made it so sweet and I don't like cheesy so you can take it from me. The story was well thought out so it all tied together nicely.Read more ›

This is a story about the power of love and how even the baddest among us can change...if they want to.

In a nutshell: Bada** rocker chick who drinks excessively and sleeps around and parties realizes her life sucks. Meeting Anabella makes her want to be a better person. But can she? After all, she just runs away, right back into that lifestyle as soon as the going gets tough.

I had a love/hate thing going with the heroine of this book. I didn't like her much at all until the last quarter when the book suddenly slapped me in the face and I realized what the theme was...bear with me here. I didn't like how Mandy runs away from Bella, leaves her to pick up the pieces, tosses her daughter in the arms of a nanny, and then proceeds to thrive on all their text messages and voice mails and daises, expecting them to love her, but not giving back. Not even picking up the phone to talk to them, but yet expecting them to call..etc.

I didn't like this chick at all. In my eyes, she didn't care enough about Bella to even keep up to date on the news.

And that is when the book shocked the heck out of me. Just when I was cursing Mandy for the upteenth time, I realized...while they were loving and supporting Mandy from afar, she, in turn, in rocker-girl-reformed-style, was also loving and supporting them.

And that is when I finally "got" it.

Love and support comes in many forms. Love can motivate the hardest of souls to change for the better. People can change if they want to. Sometimes it just takes a nudge or in this case, a kind smile and a sweet voice. And guess what!! I've known this, but apparently a lot of romance authors don't...you don't have to have sex with someone to realize you love them! *GASP* Call the Enquirer!

This is a heartwarming and laugh-out-loud story with lovable characters. Although there are grammatical errors throughout the story, it is still an excellent read. I haven't read much first person lately but I enjoyed getting into the mind of 'M'. I look forward to reading more from this author (heck, I can't wait to read it again)! Thank you Erik Schubach!

Seriously though, please start another book and create a page on Facebook!

This author used a lot of internal dialogue with the main character. I found it annoying, but the story was so incredible that I suffered through.

The most obvious thing about this book as you read it is how much fun the author had writing it. I'm sure Mr Schubach was cracking himself up most of the time, and the joy carries through to the reader. The language is very clear and descriptive, making it easy to visualize the scenes. I do need to complain though that I had some trouble putting it down and found myself arguing with the characters as they felt so real to me. My boyfriend actually turned to me several times during a sitting to remind me it was only a book!

More About the Author

I got my start writing romance novels by accident. I have always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And I also believe that there is a lack of LGBT characters in media. So one day I came up with a story idea that combines the two... two days later I completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul.

My writing style may not be the most professional nor grammatically correct, but I never profess to be an English major, just a person that wants to share a story. I maintain that my primary language is sarcasm.

Each of my books features strong likeable female characters that are flawed. I think that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character than simply conforming to some "social norm".

I have also started a SciFi series, The Valkyrie Chronicles which features a Valkyrie, Kara, who was left behind on Earth five thousand years ago to help the Asgard race escape the onslaught of the Ragnarok horde. With the aid of a human, Kate, she holds the line in battle to herald the return of the Asgard!

If you like magic, paranormal romance and witches, then my new series Fracture might tickle your fancy. In the first book Fracture: Divergence, Alex King must stop magic from destroying reality. The problem is that Alex must solve the case in parallel universes where in one Alex is male and female in the other.
