From the Author

Shakespeare with a rockin' twist.

About the Author

Michelle Mankin is the New York Times and Amazon bestselling author of the Black Cat Records series of novels.
Rock Stars. Romance. Redemption.
Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a BRUTAL STRENGTH centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock 'n roll industry.
Things take a bit of an edgier, once upon a time turn with the TEMPEST series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.
Rock stars, myths, and legends collide with paranormal romance in a totally mesmerizing way in the MAGIC series.
Catch the perfect wave with irresistible surfers in the ROCK STARS, SURF AND SECOND CHANCES series.
Romance and self-discovery, the FINDING ME series is a Tempest spin off with a more experienced but familiar cast of characters.
When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock or NOLA funk music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend.

Michelle Mankin has a great idea of modern re-tellings of Shakespeare's comedies using a rock band and country singers. I loved Love Evolution which was Twelfth Night and Love Revolution which is Much Ado About Nothing. I am looking forward to Love Resolution due out in March (according to the author's comments at the end of this book) of 2013, but no hit is given about which Shakespeare comedy this one will be.

I am a big fan of characters reappearing in subsequent books and was not disappointed to see Avery, Mason and the rest of Brutal Strength, especially JR, who was a main character in this book. So if you know the Shakespeare story, then you know it is about two female relatives (sisters in this book) who fall in love. One is prickly and is hard to love, the other is sweet and kind and the perfect woman. I was surprised when Sara and Chris Alex (who we met in book 1) meet because their sexual banter seemed juvenile and I was surprised to find out they were 32 and 44 respectively. I thought these two were the main characters and in their early twenties when I first started reading, but it is Sara's sister Sam who is in her twenties and falls for JR, the drummer of Brutal Strength.

Of course there was the showdown and the feelings of betrayal, just like in Shakespeare's work, and a sweet/sad love song that Sara and Chris collaborated on called That Leads to Leavin' you. I love that this author can write lyrics and it reminds me of Where She Went by Gayle Forman.

Love Revolution had a bit too much drama for my taste, even if I enjoyed the characters and the overall story just fine.

So, a bit much drama made Love Revolution less enjoyable to me, and so did the fact that we followed two couples instead of one. This made me feel like I didn’t have enough time with either couple, and thus, I didn’t really get to know the characters as well as I would have liked. What little I did to see of Sarah made her seem very controlling, both of her environment (and the people around her) in general, and also over her little sister, Samantha. Luckily, I got to know why she acted like this pretty soon, so I could understand where she was coming from, even if I didn’t necessarily agree with her actions.

Getting back to the universe of Brutal Strength was enjoyable, even if Love Revolution failed to woo me as much as it could have. I mean, what’s not to love? Hot musicians, a fast-paced storyline, deception, deceit and drama. There was love, too, but maybe not quite enough for me to feel completely invested in these two couples.

Written in third person point of view, past tense, there are chapters from each of the four main characters’ perspective. The voice of each characters is distinct, so it’s really no problem following them. But if the story had been a bit longer, I would have gotten to know them better, and then I would also probably have enjoyed Love Revolution even more.

Talk about a HOT-ASS read!! Oh my WOW!!!

After Love Evolution, I was just itching to see what sort of story would come out of Love Revolution.

So, in this installment we're reacquainted with some old friends from Love Evolution and introduced to some steamy new characters. Fiesty Country Rocker Sarah Daniels...her baby sister, Samantha drummer from Brutal Strength, JR...and "over-the-hill" rocker Chris Alex. (With some all important visits from Marcus and Avery - our leads in Love Evolution)

Sarah is teamed up with Chris in hopes to revive his failing music career. From the beginning the sarcastic, tense, flirty relationship is evident...with it all coming to a head after an amazing kiss. Let's just say, without giving too much away, the relationship evolution between these two is intense!! Wicked wicked intense.

Oh so sweet Samantha teams up with bad boy JR from Brutal Strength. His not-so-squeaky-clean image is in high contrast to Samantha's inexperience. But something about Sam draws JR to her in a way that he doesn't understand and can't explain. It's sweet to watch how quickly their relationship picks up the pace...with a twist that will leave your jaw hanging on the floor.

And just as a side-note - I love that two of MY most favorite things in the world are melded together (even if it is only for a scene). HOCKEY AND MUSIC!! Ummmm...yes please!! Kudos to the author for working the Stars and the Canucks into this book!!!

With all the hot and steaminess of these two relationships playing out....the past sneaks up on Sarah and Sam with an ending that's explosive to say the least!!

The author leaves us wanting more...with a cliff-hanger of sorts that makes you say, "WHAT!???!?? NO...

Put on your band t-shirts, miniskirts, and sh*t kickers, cause were taking a ride on the Love Revolution tour bus. Insert Brutal Strength music here. This book is hotter than a billy goat with a blowtorch, sweeter than my Mimi's apple pie, and while reading the romance; you'll feel more tension than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

Michelle Mankin's first book, Love Evolution, is appropriate for all ages, but the next in the series, THE NEXT BOOK, gasp, Love Revolution, turns on the Texas size heat for an AMAZING new adult contemporary read with a dash of country western and a whole lotta rock and roll.

The main characters, sisters, Sara and Sam, are prettier than a mess of fried catfish, sassy, independent, and vulnerable. And with a shared complex past, each sister struggles in their own way to find love, romance, and maybe even just the next one night stand. The male love interests are dripping with hotness, confidence, and slow as molasses tenderness that just left me rooting for them in every single chapter. Mankin's superb writing, plotting pace, and use of intense sexual tension will leave you flipping pages faster than a bee stung stallion!

Pick this one up now!!
I give this one Five Sizzling Hot Stars!!!!
