Recoil Rock Series, #2
March 9th 2017
Death—it is inevitable, but I didn’t know it could come so early.
If things didn’t change, mine would be sooner than expected.
My life hasn’t been easy, though with the way I act you’d think it has been.
I’m a joker, a partier, a playboy, a prankster. But I’m also broken.
A shell of a man.
Ryan Hunter, lead guitarist with nothing to live for.
Not even music soothes me completely.
My band is back together, we’re doing really well—but I’m in a rut.
I’m lost, thinking about my past is swallowing me whole.
Especially since she turned up.
Our new PR manager. She’s feisty, in control and so damn sexy I can’t stand it.
But that woman is not only taking my PR role from me, she’s also taking my breath away, and that I won’t stand for.
Not with my past, not with my demons.
Tillie Marks has to go.
And I will make damn sure it happens!
Lately I seem to be having a “Rocker” phase and as I have always a thing for “damaged” characters what would be the more obvious than going for a damaged rocker #figures
Well I came across the “Recoil” series by K.E. Osborn. And while I was aiming to read only “Plucker” because of its plotline – I was told it would be best to read “Pick” before, so I did just that and here are a few of my thoughts.
When I started reading I felt thrown right into the middle of an already existing world. While this series starts with “Pick” it seems that there are many characters appearing that I am supposed to know (I am only assuming as it feels like that), while that is kind of nice usually as it mostly triggers my wish to read the previous books, it was a little sidetracking in this case.
The plotlines connect other books of this author like crossovers do on TV. The author has an unusual writing style I think, a huge part of the stories is told from the PoV of the male characters before the females join in their thoughts and actions.
And her males are showing their emotions very openly which I also different from the mainstream and needed some getting used to.
I liked the complexity of the characters in both “Pick” and “Plucker” and while the storyline in the books is different the author did the same good work on their backgrounds as both books feel solid once you get used the different / non mainstream way the author writes.
