Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Falling in Reverse by Julia Wolf, along with getting my impressions of it, then add this first installment in the Seasons Change series to your bookshelf!
Delicious Irish accent. Built like a slab of marble. Infuriatingly controlling.
My new bodyguard...
All I want is to rock hard with my band, The Seasons Change, and finally live my life exactly how I please. No one telling me what to do, no constraints, total freedom.
Too bad I’ve managed to piss someone off.
Crazed fan or bitter ex, it doesn’t really matter, since the result is the same. My wings are clipped and I’m strapped to a bodyguard with alpha tendencies and a disdain for celebrities.
Everyday I spend with Ronan is a battle. For control. For independence. And most unexpectedly, with my own willpower.
Because Ronan doesn’t just want to protect me. He wants me in his bed too, and ceding my control to Ronan is more tempting than I ever imagined.
But I’m Iris Adler, a fierce-to-my-bones rocker. If Ronan Walsh really wants all of me, he’d better be prepared for the fall.
MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
As a fan of rockstar romances I gobbled this one right up! With its sizzling main couple, slow-burn journey of opposites attracting, and with a dash of suspense, I was on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. While this overall story wasn't groundbreaking it was entertaining and a definite satisfying start to a new rockstar series!
Iris is a wonderful heroine, a sassy tell it like it is, rocker who's full of self-assuredness. She's strong-willed, independent, and isn't one to live according to others. When her bandmates decide that their fame means needing to keep her safe though, her world changes irrevocably with the introduction of a bodyguard. She and the bodyguard are combustible from the very start as she doesn't like being told what to do. There's a definite push/pull between them as she enjoys poking at the sexy beast sworn to protect her. Ronan's one sexy beast, an Irishman with an accent to make you melt! On the surface he seems very different from Iris with his stoic and rigid overprotective side shining through. As readers get to see more of him, and as Iris starts wearing him down, we see a caring heart emerge who just wants to keep the person he's come to care about safe. They're clearly opposites at the start but those differences soon become what binds them together in their slow-burn journey to HEA.
This was a sizzling story from the very start, entertaining readers with the sexual tension between two perfectly imperfect people. Readers will find themselves drawn to this compelling couple as they work together to make their very different lives mesh. Ms. Wolf has crafted a sexy and suspenseful rockstar romance, courtesy of a world that I would love to revisit. So here's to Ms. Wolf’s rockstar world and it's reigning couple who burned up the pages.
My rating for this is an A-
*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
Julia Wolf is a lover of all things romance. From steamy, to sweet, to funny, to so dirty you’ll be blushing for days, she loves it all.
Formerly a hair stylist, she spent years collecting stories her clients couldn’t wait to spill. And now that she’s writing full time, she’s putting those stories to use, although all identifying characteristics have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent!
Julia lives in Maryland with her three crazy, beautiful kids and her patient husband who she’s slowly converting to a romance reader, one book at a time.
