But the rejection Cliff received from Kat helped him grow in Forbidden Song. He learned that just because he's a pretty voice doesn't mean he's going to always get what he asks for or wants. But then enters Christine. He tries to keep a cold shoulder to her. He tries so hard to not like her.
Christine is held under the thumb of her other brother Quinn. It seems forced to have him be so adamant about her staying away from the music scene. I mean, why not ask a favor of your good buddy Klement and make sure she's traveling with a band you know and trust for her to write her dissertation, instead of risk her traveling with one that you don't know much about or one you don't like? At least you would know where she's at. You could still get plenty of drama from the known numerals in that equation, instead of having the lies and deceit knot.
I like that Cliff grew as a character.
I don't like that Christine was mentioned a single time and we knew nothing about her but yet she's a big deal because she's the little sister of a main character from a previous book.
I wasn't sure I'd like shallow, womanizer, Cliff Tracey (lead singer of rock band, Bleeding Vengeance) after viewing him through Katana James eyes in "With Vengeance" (book 2 of this series), but he acquitted himself admirably:) I especially enjoyed Christine Mayne's character. She is the highly overprotected younger sister of Quinn Mayne (lead singer rock band, Viciöus). She is working on her Psychology Phd dissertation and needs to study rock band relationship dynamics in hope to one day council them so they can avoid breaking up. The pair bring out the best in each other. It was an enjoyable read from cover to cover!
The group is wonderful. I enjoyed them, a lot. This is a nice, light book, but is a bit different from this author's usual work in that it has - ummm, well, less bite.
I had a hard time rooting for the two main characters, Cliff and Christine. Their development, individually and as a couple just felt empty. Their romance would have made a great side story in a fully developed novel.
This was still a good, quick read, it just left a lot to be desired. I felt more like I was reading fan fiction. Not bad, but just leaving you feel meh in an otherwise memorable series.
Christine Mayne’s still struggling to get control of her life after a sexual assault in her teens at the hands of another rock band that her brother Quinn still carries immense guilt over. In his need to keep her safe he’s smothering her as he controls every aspect of her life, both financially and physically. Tired of feeling like a prisoner she lies her way onto the Bleeding Vengeance tour to work on her PhD, but soon finds herself falling for Cliff and finally getting to experience life in many sweet and erotic encounters. Christine’s a likable heroine who’s been through a lot in life. Though it’s admirable that her brother wants to protect her he’s far too overbearing. He’s controlled so many aspects of her life that she’s left uncertain and teeming with immaturity that was sometimes frustrating and sometimes endearing. My biggest issue with her related to all the lies she told. Considering how little control she had in her life I know she felt she had no choice, but standing her ground and speaking her mind in a more thoughtful way would’ve proved her maturity much sooner. I did enjoy her relationship with Cliff though as it was a carefree connection, not weighed down by her past, that was full of joy and self-empowerment. Sweet and erotically-charged encounters showed Christine and Cliff to be a dynamic duo that were better people together than apart.
Cliff Tracey’s always seen women as a benefit to being a rock star, a momentary appetizer to be quickly forgotten. As the son of a rock star he was taught that lesson from an early age, but seeing all his friends start to find their HEAs has him feeling lost and alone. He sees everyone leaving him for others, and while he wants someone to call his own, he’s scared to put his heart on the line. The moment he sees Christine he wants to call her his own, even though he knows their relationship will cause problems. Being with her brings him a sense of happiness and peace, makes him a better man that has him thinking of the future, until all her lies and Quinn’s anger pulls them apart. Through all their ups and downs Cliff is a delicious hero. Early on he appears as the quintessential rock god, but being around Christine shows a more personable and thoughtful man. He’s sexy but also sweet in his gentle wooing of Christine. I felt sympathetic towards him throughout the story and his feelings of loneliness and fear over the changes in his band constantly had me wanting to hug him. Though he was understandably hurt by Christine’s actions he’s quick to admit his feelings and makes a heartwarming grand gesture to win her back that brought a smile to my face.
The romance between Christine and Cliff is a satisfying one and their hard-fought HEA was a cheer-worthy one. Readers repeatedly get pulled into the rock star world through the vividly depicted concert scenes that dripped of sweat and sensuality as well as the decadence of the backstage and endlessness boredom of touring. We get reunited with past couples while getting more insight into future pairings as Ms. Ann beautifully juggles three different rock bands throughout the narrative. While all these rock stars have become like family there’s a few who stood out...for better and worse. Quinn’s a caring and loving brother but his actions were over the top and frustrating. He nicely redeemed himself at the end though and it will remind readers of why they fell for him to begin with. British drummer Rod fully tempted me here as he too has been feeling left out and unsure of his place. By the end of the story though I have great hope for his future and am waiting with breathless anticipation for his story to be told. Fans of rock star romances will want to immerse themselves in the sexy and emotionally intense world these bands inhabit and now is the perfect time to start!
