The Delight

This is one series that had a lot of heartache. Each story is a love story and two even had menage. One of those hit a hardship I never saw coming and didn’t know if I could continue with it in good faith. A death of a major character you have know since the first series and first book you by these authors breaks a bit of trust. This story was a story of survival and moving on with life.

Review

Six stories of love. The fifth story ends with one of them dead. I never saw that coming. I didn’t know if I could continue to read the series or even trust the authors again. The character was lovable, but also in a threesome relationship, leaving behind two people who loved him dearly and a child that might have been his. The sixth book dealt with the guilt. Guilt that the accident was meant for someone else. Guilt that one band member had to choose between two people who they would save. It all burdens a lot of people and the reader.

The seventh and final book of the series deals with the fall out of the death that affected two couples. It’s the comeback of the band which was devastated by the accident and death. Would they all get back together to record? Tour? Or would they all go their own ways? Without a band member or even more?

While I enjoyed seeing what happens to the band as they move forward from disaster, I also got tired of just the two couples hording the story. I know they were the central ones, but the rest of the band was also affected and I felt they were left out on how they were dealing with the fear of losing the band, losing a friend, losing their future. Or even turning it around a gaining a different future.

The story evokes some deep emotions. Why? Did you really have to do that? Everybody is expendable, but this isn’t right! I wanted to pummel the book with my anger and grief. It ran so deep. Not at the characters left, but at the authors for thinking this was ok. I really don’t do well with characters die that I love. But this story was about rebuilding, learning to survive, realizing you can move on even when you heart says you can’t. It’s about honoring the love you had, but also honoring the love you have now.

This story wraps of the story of this band. They are all married or in committed relationships. I don’t doubt we will see more of them in future books because they are all under the same label. We might even see them in the new series with Brooklyn Dawn.

About Cari Quinn

USA TODAY bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story–a bible parable–in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. She attempted her first romance in junior high, long before she’d ever read one. Writing what she knew always took a backseat to what she wanted to know, and that still holds true today.

Though she also fires up her computer as a graphic designer, proofreader and editor, she can’t resist the lure of disappearing into a world of her own creation. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars.

The only thing she loves more than writing is hearing from readers! Please visit her at her website at http://www.cariquinn.com

About Taryn Elliott

I’m USA Today Bestselling author Taryn Elliott. I’m a music freak who loves everything about telling stories. I have way too many ideas rattling around in my head, but music almost always ends up in the story somehow. I’m very lucky to have a job that allows me to slip into the shoes of musicians, actors, business women, tycoons, bodyguards, chefs, bakers, carpenters, inventors, bartenders, wine makers, artists, and so many more characters to come. Talk about living the dream.

Oh, and I write 85% of this with my bestie and writing partner, Cari Quinn. We also write super sexy paranormal romance and erotic romance under Taryn Quinn.

Enough about me…go read about one of my hot guys. They’re far more interesting. 😉

Oh man, that is how I felt when I read a certain PNR story in a popular series and then a new to me author did it to me in her debut biker romance book. I know people die, but I hate it in a romance.

I know people die, but not after they found their live in a book earlier in the series. I was so angry and devastated afterwards. This book I guess was supposed to heal that and show the characters moving in. This wasn’t my favorite series from them so I am just going to let it all go.
