Kneel (Book One) was told in Iris Daine's POV and believe me when I tell you, the pain she endured at the hands of her former best friend and lover that was Jamie was downright heartbreaking and incredibly cringe-worthy. And now with Beg, I loved that the author very smartly chose to write this book in Jamie's POV, getting that first-hand glimpse into his thoughts and the reasons behind his numerous desperate attempts to make things right again with his girl. I can't even properly describe just how low Jamie had to go before anything could change.
A huge bravo for the author in her clever idea to bring in Jamie's parents, the ones who abandoned him many times over, becoming the very catalysts in allowing him to truly find his way back home again. The unexpected bond Jamie finds with his idol, Wills Lager, as tedious as it may have been at times was fraught with mistrust and skepticism. But the author wisely took her time to develop the relationship that Jamie didn't even know he needed and a surprising joy at creating music together might just be what this rock star craved deep in his heart.
I honestly couldn't predict whether or not any of the gestures, both mighty and small, would convince Iris to give Jamie another chance. So much transpires in this book. So many bad feelings. So much hurt and humiliation. Each journey is uniquely each character's own. Sure they intersect but nothing is guaranteed and I was almost hesitant as the end of the story was fast approaching.
I will say that I am completely satisfied with this duet and that Eden Butler wrote one of the best rocker stories out there today. There is so much realism into the world of rock n roll. Nothing is sugarcoated and the way she used the world of rock as the backdrop to the struggles Jamie Vega endures in trying his best to figure out both his being worthy of Iris's love and his place in the world was excellent. He stumbles often but I was impressed by his oft-times hesitance at making things right. Jamie is flawed but at his core, he has a huge heart making him very hard to resist.
A huge 5 stars for this engaging and beautifully written story.
The entire story is being told from Jaime/Dash’s point of view. He feels terrible about how he reacted to Iris in part one and is working hard on winning her back. Only she doesn’t care for it and stays away.
This was basically the story of Jaime’s inner turmoil, the bad relationships he had formed throughout his life, starting point being his being born. The only bright side had always been having Iris in his life, and he regrets his actions when he thought she had betrayed him once again.
I completely understood Iris being furious with Jaime for betraying her the way he did. But I did not understand why she felt like she was not at fault at all for what she had done to drive them apart. It was a two way street and it just felt like she was punishing him for both their bad choices.
I was really hoping to see them together for more than just the final chapter and epilogue. I wanted more, and didn’t get any closure on their story. The ending felt rushed and just there. Again, I wanted more.
Beg is book #2 in the God of Rock series. It is the conclusion of Jamie & Iris’s story, told in Jamie/Dash’s POV. As I have said before, no one does angst like Eden Butler! Kneel took me on a ride that ended in devastation! I could not imagine how things could be repaired or redeemed in Beg.
When Kneel ended, Jamie had betrayed Iris is such an awful way. Hurt, humiliation and embarrassment. Jamie/Dash’s actions were born out of his insecurities and disbeliefs. Jamie is now looking around at the devastation and trying to figure things out. How do you figure out that showing the world a video of you having sex with your girlfriend or ‘love of your life’ was not a wise choice? Jamie is so lost. As he realizes how wrong he was he attempts to find Iris. But his search is futile. Clearly, she does not want to be found.
"She’d been the only person who truly knew me. My first fan. My first friend. My only love, and I’d ripped apart everything because I’d been stupid and blind."
And, there is so much more! Will Iris forgive Jamie? Is it even possible? Also adding to the mix is Wills Lager. Wills Lager is the famous musician and lead singer of Hawthorne. What do you do when you find out the person you idolized your whole life is your father? Hawthorne sang the music that was the soundtrack of Jamie & Iris’s youth. Their love of music, particularly indie, bonded them on so many levels.
"I saw the hurt. I saw betrayal, and it gutted me; even though I tried to ignore it, it gutted me all the same, and then it destroyed me."
Eden Butler does not just put a Band-Aid on things, give you a lollipop, and send you on your way. This wound that she inflicted in Kneel is deep and takes time to repair. She states “We all sin and fall and do things that hurt others. We can be greedy. We can be possessive and, yes manipulative for both good and bad reasons. The bottom line, however, is learning how to forgive yourself before you ask the same of those you hurt.” And that is why I love her writing. It is rich. It is deep. It is thoughtful.
“Sometimes, the bottom is the strongest place to stand when you’re trying to get on your feet again.”
