The Delight

Rock Revenge reunites us with Simon from Oblivion and his wife Margo (well she wasn’t so much into marriage, but it seems she gave in). But we get a new character to love even if he is the anti-hero of this series. He’s going to knock Simon on his ass, but he is much deeper than the guy you see on the TV.


Secrets abound as we join the Oblivion band on their European part of the tour.  Reflecting on his last concert, Simon is blown away when he sees his own image and voice crooning on a competition show. Who is this guy? Ian doesn’t make Simon wait long. He says his name and when asked a question, answers it honestly. Now Simon can’t get out of his head that someone is stealing his face and voice. But this also drives him out of his comfort zone as he still doesn’t strain his voice beyond what he is comfortable with considering how close he came to losing his life from screaming.

Margo also has her own secret that she is afraid to reveal, but at the same time extremely excited the more she thinks about it. She knows her husband is going through something big, but she puts her trust in Lila (the band manager and wife to their guitarist, Nick). In love with the Simon who comes alive on the stage, she captures the exciting times they used to have when they first were a couple. An amazing connection blooms between these two as they get high on their love and learn to let go.

But through it all Simon can’t let go of the issue at hand and decides to settle it once and for all with Ian. He’s not level headed, but emotion is leading him to be a hot head. Ian Kagan isn’t what Simon expected, but then he isn’t really thinking either. The two fight, and have words, but neither can deny what they are to each other genetically.

Ian Kagan is the anti-hero. He isn’t someone we are supposed to like. Not a great guy as he wakes up with two women he can’t remember shagging. You know a scheme is brewing, but not sure what all it entails. Their mother isn’t a woman you think you will respect if you ever meet her. Having two sons, not being much of a mother and moving to London…it makes you wonder how she and her son got caught up in a scheme we have little details about. But the one thing you do know. Ian wants his chance to make it big. He has the voice, looks and now the name to go with it to propel him or sink him.

This is a trilogy, so I tried not to reveal too much not knowing where the story plans to go. The story weaved me into the love story or Simon and Margo again. All the things she didn’t want are coming true, but this man loves her beyond meaning. Seeing them act like the love was new and exciting makes you believe everyone can still have that in their love life. With the threats coming in, they still pull together and their band family and you feel no matter what they will be fine. Ian brings us stomach rolls, but intrigue to know his story. I wanted to dislike him, but you also felt for him knowing his life hasn’t been a bed of roses. Now I can’t wait to find out more.

I received the book free because the authors gave it to their email subscribers – thank you so much ladies. If you have an Kindle Unlimited account you can also get it with your subscription. Either way, I recommend you follow along only if you have read the Lost in Oblivion series, otherwise you will be lost on all the Simon and Margo have gone through. But if you have read it, then go get this and wait in anticipation for book 2 with me!

Anything but Mine by Taryn Elliott  


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

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. 😉

I had some sympathy for Ian, but if he hurts Simon, then I won’t be so nice!

Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott write a lot of books series together and sometimes they put the name Taryn Quinn on them. So I started labeling them with all these names.
