A PREQUEL to the NA rock star series Lost In Oblivion.
Warning: get ready for a testosterone overload. The guys are in the driver’s seat in Seduced – and the ride’s gonna rock.
Twenty-three year old Nick Crandall has one focus in his life: Oblivion, the band he formed with his best friend Simon Kagan. With gigs coming up and the band members lacking focus after losing their drummer to rehab, they’re out of ideas. Until Oblivion’s bassist, Deacon McCoy, poses a surprising suggestion.
Bring in someone new. Two someones.
One You Tube video gone viral later, Oblivion is poised on the brink of stardom. With their new hot drummer chick — who comes in a package deal with a talented guitarist who happens to be head over pick in unrequited love with her – it seems like everything’s falling into place. Or will the band Nick and Simon have fought to keep together disintegrate before their eyes?
Four guys & one woman + more success than they ever bargained for = trouble, of the sexiest kind.
Get Seduced by this novel-length introduction to the band Oblivion. This preview occurs before the four forthcoming books about each of the band members. Sometimes getting lost means finding yourself…
Oblivion, the band:
Nick Crandall: Hotheaded lead guitarist, songwriter and one of the founders of the band, has a bad habit of wanting what he shouldn’t have
Simon Kagan: Volatile lead singer, one of the principal songwriters and founders of the band, boredom is tantamount to a jail sentence and no bars can hold him
Deacon McCoy: Keeper of the peace and the bass, he takes the chaos and makes things cohesive, too bad the pressure of always being the diplomat demands a release
Grayson Duffy: Lead guitarist, songwriter, and protector of Jazz, even when she’s determined to fight him every step of the way
Jasmine “Jazz” Edwards: Drummer, songwriter, musical prodigy, ex-good girl on a collision course with bad
Meet Nick Crandall, Simon Kagan, Deacon McCoy, Grayson Duffy and Jasmine ‘Jazz’ Edwards. Members of the hottest rockband in romanceland! If you’re looking for the next great rockstar romance series, look no further! When I just finished the book I had no words to express how much I loved this book. All I could say was: GO BUY this book. Don’t walk, RUN!! Now that I’ve had a few days to mull it over I have come up with a seemingly coherent review.
I beyond loved the band and everything to do with them. SEDUCED is a perfect mix of music, sex and emotions with characters you’ll adore from the moment you meet them!
The dynamics between the band members and the different roles and issues they had. I loved the gritty feel of the book, I loved the dialogues, banter and even the arguments between the characters I loved the hints and tidbits about all the characters that made me want to know more about their back-stories and above all I loved the romance parts with frank and dirty, dirty sexy written all over them.
Taryn Elliott and Cari Quinn rocked (see what I did there) this start of a new co-written series! Separately they already wrote awesome books but together they are a force to be reckoned with and they blew this one out of the water! Even though this was just a prequel-ish introductory book, it was as satisfying to me as if it had been a standalone romance with a HEA. I can’t wait to see how storylines set up in this first book will be played out in the ones to come.
Lost in Oblivion-fan for life!!!
– Nick and Jazz after the first gig > Combustibly hot!
– the fight in the basement appartment > breathtaking!
– Simon and Margo at the studio > hot doesn’t even begin to describe it
“Excuse me for being more selective than you manwhores. Both of you would drill a tree trunk if the hole was big enough.” Deacon saluted them with his bottle. “And in both your cases, it could be a pretty small hole.”
“This doesn’t stop with a kiss, Violin Girl.”
“Margo,” she said on an uneven breath. “If we do this, you better know my name.”
“Margo,” he [Simon] agreed. No he wouldn’t forget her name. Ever. Then his mouth was on hers again. They both fought for dominance, but he couldn’t settle back an let her take control. This wasn’t his usual roll for fun and distraction. He couldn’t sit back and let whatever happened happen.
Her taste infected him like a lyric that needed to be absorbed and understood. A lyric that would burrow into his brain for years. Like “The Becoming”, he needed to understand and devour her until everything was clear.
