|Savage Beasts #2|
|February 3rd 2020|
|STANDALONE #2 in the Savage Beasts rock star series.
Treyton Collins is Savage Beasts’ drummer.
Brielle Patrick is Savage Beasts’ publicist.
|It has been a while since I read Kozart by J. Nathan the first book in the Kozart Savage Beasts’ Series but it only took me a few minutes of reading “Treyton” and I was right back in the middle of the story. That alone is an accomplishment that deserves a few stars thrown in because of the number of books I read in between these two.
You can read Treyton as a standalone but as it’s story is connected to Kozart because of the secondary characters – I would always recommend starting at the beginning to get the full entertainment and to not spoiler yourself.
I loved the fire between the leading characters. Trey and Brie had real chemistry and with all the contradictions that were floating around their story was almost explosive and from turning the first page until the very last one I was captured in their world.
For my very and I mean VERY special taste I would have loved a little more light in some areas of the story like Trey’s past – but understanding “artistic/writer’s freedom” – this is really just my personal preference as the story worked fine without that.
There was a moment near the peak of the story where I was wondering about the reasons for certain actions of some of the characters – but again that was only me always questioning tiny details that probably only half of the readers even would notice – if at all ….
Yes I have an OCD with details and timelines – like – with all the times I have been in Belgium – I never heard of someone ordering a pitcher with beer. Pitchers I know from the States and sometimes the UK but the only thing in pitchers around Europe as far as my knowledge goes are cocktails and only in very rare cases. I think in Munich you might get thrown out of any “Kneipe” (pub/bar) where you tried asking for a pitcher of beer … But is this relevant to the story? No so just ignore my rambling hahaha
So if this story was so explosive and I ignored my own OCD – why can I not give 5 stars? A good and valid question – the 5th star is my “pure feelings” – and the only thing that I was missing in this great story was that I personally had no “heartbreak”, “laughing out loud”, “sigh” or “anger” moment – the story was floating perfectly without and “spike” – and while I know many readers prefer their perfect entertainment I crave these moments like air.
But in my world 4 stars is a solid writing with well-developed characters and plot that I can only recommend and I honestly hope there will be more books in this series as I can not wait to hear about the other characters that so far have only been secondary. Until then I will read the 3 remaining books of that author that – as I realized just now – I haven’t read so far.
