Forbidden Song (Hearts of Metal Book 5) by Brooklyn Ann
Forbidden Song (Hearts of Metal Book 5) - Brooklyn Museum

This is the fifth book in the Hearts of Metal series but I promise it can definitely be read as a standalone. I know this because I’ve only read the previous book yet I never felt lost. 
I love how the author was able to weave so many characters into one book without making it feel convoluted. All of them felt true to their nature, including “slutty” Cliff, who can still be a jerk at times but now that we start seeing things from his POV it’s impossible not to have feelings for the guy. Christine’s independent spirit causes more trouble than not but even so she was a lovable character because it was not mischief what drove her but an honest will to live her own life. 

I felt this book centered more around the dynamics of the band’s members and their personal struggles, but even so it did not lack in the romance department. Christine and Cliff’s relationship may take a backseat at times but it’s always present throughout the book. Their emotions are all palpable and when they were together it was all but fire on the pages! The mix of drama and funny, laugh-out-loud moments made this book pretty enjoyable. And the fact that we get to visit with all of the other bands, including Rage of Angels (from the Bride of Prophecies series) makes it a memorable one as well. In short, I think this story is the perfect tease because if anyone picks this one up before the previous books in the series will want to get them all and start reading them asap. 

***I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

Arc Review: Bama Girl Blues (Hot Wired #3) by Gracen Miller
Bama Girl Blues (Hot Wired #3 - Rocker Romance) - Gracen Miller,Brannon Jones,Kristina Haecker

What a crazy pair! I loved Keith and Vanessa right from the start. She's a woman that knows what she wants, when she wants it and is not afraid to ask for it when necessary. Even though she's known some band members since childhood she's kept a low profile and would rather not have anything to do with the spotlight. Keys was quite a charmer that because of his family's business has always been in public's eye, even before he became a rock star. To him fame and fortune came with the territory. 

At the start of their fling, Vanessa had lots of plans for her future and the last thing she wanted was to start a relationship with her longtime friend Keys. She knew that would impede her from fulfilling her career goals but at the same time she could not keep denying the pull she felt towards him. When she decided to make her move (because it was she who made the first move and I loved her for that) she made Keys a proposition that was impossible for him to resist.

The chemistry between the two was off the charts. They had this easy bantering that made their relationship pretty relatable and what I loved the most of it was that there was such an openness to one another that not only did I find cute but also incredibly sexy. 

The rock band members were a riot and a half and their dynamics made them sound more like a family than simply band mates. I had forgotten how much I truly liked this bunch.

In short it was a great romance story and if anything the only thing I didn't like much was the fact that we keep hearing over and over again about Nessa's Southern roots and her not too-skinny body. I get that both situations set the base for the whole conundrum but I didn't think it was necessary to be reminded of it every five minutes. But that's just my picky self being picky. 

3.5 stars rounded to 4.

Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book by Wallace Fairfax
Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book - Wallace Fairfax


Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book , ("How much more black could it be?"), is exactly what you expect and hope it to be-which is FANTASTIC!



It includes a complete discography and history of the band. It includes close up looks at each individual member, including most of the drummers that are no longer with us.


A bio and background information is provided on Marty Debergi, how he came to be turned on to the band, and became interested in making a documentary about them.


It has a few tidbits too, such as-remember when David St. Hubbins was talking about the audio books that were read by celebrities of the same last name as the author of the books? The full list is here, such as: The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson as read by Pamela Anderson.


Behind the scenes interviews with band members and an entire section on the horrible Jeanine Pettibone who took over as Tap's manager after Ian Faith left.


Everything is here: "turn it up to 11", Sh*t Sandwich, the puppet show, "Hello Cleveland!", the Stonehenge monument in danger of being crushed by a dwarf, everything...it's all here. 



If you are a "Taphead" this book cannot fail to put a smile on your face. If you aren't familiar with the band: buy this book and see the movie, and you soon will be!


Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book gets my highest recommendation!


*Thank you to Edelweiss and to the publisher for the e-ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. This is it!*

Finally caught up with the Mistborn books
The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn) - Brandon Sanderson

The stakes keep getting higher each book, and more and more of the world and the Gods and other mystical forces is revealed.


There appears to be one more book left in Era Two of the Mistborn books, and it looks like it will get more into the history and religion of the world than the previous. Each book reveals more worldbuilding. I love that each Era follows the world created through generations. The first set, ancient times, this new set, the dawn of industrialization,and I am looking forward to the next Era. It's amazing that we can follow a world from beginning to end, and see how our heroes becomes legend and Gods..and how their legend changes through generations. I like stories that shoe Gods as people, who may know a bit more than others, but still doing their best, while making mistakes.

Reading progress update: I've read 167 out of 448 pages.
The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn) - Brandon Sanderson

I am really enjoying the slow build of the relationship between Steris and Wax. I love a slow build. I appreciate a relationship more when I can witness how the relationship between the two characters grew, and understand why they become close. Steris at first introduction came across and clod and brittle....but as you get to know her character through Wax...you realize that that is just the surface. And that outer wall hides a whole wealth of surprises and awkwardness. The way this relationship is being build...the reader falls for Steris along with out hero...and that is what is going on here...even if Wax doesn't see it yet. 


Oh yeah...action! magic! Guns!..blah blah.
