Check out my review for Olivia Evans’ BROOKLYN & BEALE. I absolutely loved this book and haven’t read a rock romance that’s tugged on my heart strings since Thoughtless by SC Stephens. Olivia Evans might be a new kid on the literary block but this author is owning it. She is definitely one to add to your ‘favourite author go to’ list.
Not since Kellan Kyle have I read a rock/music book that gave me the feels. Now don’t go getting your panties in a twist. I’m not comparing Thoughtless and Brooklyn & Beale… there isn’t one. We’re talking two completely different stories.
What I am saying is one hot rock boy who has to find who he is made me swoon and fangirl and not put down the book just like KK did.
Reid Ryder is all kinds of delicious but he’s got a vulnerable side that makes readers melt.
I loved how author Olivia Evans gave readers that push -pull and internal struggle for Ryder. It gave just enough angst without wanting to scream “man the F* up.”
Chloe was an awesome female character. A perfect balance of gorgeousness, badass, humor and talent. There isn’t anything to not like about her.
One of my top reasons for loving Brooklyn & Beale is that the author took her time to develop a relationship between characters. Not just the main ones but all of them. I really felt like I was in the story alongside the characters.
Also there was no insta-love. Thank goodness. This factor made it such a worthwhile read because you could feel the build up.
I also enjoyed the fact that the author didn’t rely on a character to be the asshole for readers to hate so you’d love another. It was a story about everyone finding their place amongst the group. It was a story of change… how life changes, how love changes, how people change.
Unlike so many stories these days, the author did not use gratuitous sex to propel the story foward and give it life. She used raw emotions and simple human nature to create an amazing story of finding inner strength and true love.
I never wanted to put the book down. I really hope Evans is working on more amazing stories.
