Another Postcard - Review Blitz



Another Postcard
by Elle Christensen





Brooklynn Hawk is an enigma. Highly sought after for her incredible voice, her talent shines

bright in the studio. But a dark past and a secret she holds close to her heart keep her from permanently stepping into the limelight.

Until her favorite band offers her the chance to chase her dreams.

As the lead singer for rock sensation Stone Butterfly, Levi Matthews is wary of bringing in new talent. But he has heard just how amazing Brooklyn is and when the need for another singer arises, he’s confident that she is the perfect addition.

However, he doesn’t count on laying his heart at her feet.

But the world of music can be as dangerous as it is thrilling. Joining Stone Butterfly on tour was hard enough for Brooklyn, but when she finally succumbs to Levi’s charms, the rock ‘n’ roll life turns deadly.

Will Levi and Brooklyn keep their voices and their hearts entwined? Or will the music prove too hard to survive?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!


What I say: Famous rock ensemble Stone Butterfly need another member. Brooklynn is famous for her amazing vocals and is quickly snapped up by the band. Where she meets legendary heartthrob Levi there is instant chemistry. As the charming and oh-so-handsome lead singer of the group, Levi is used to getting his way with women but faces quite a challenge winning Brooklynn's heart. He's determined to convince her he's not the usual rocker manwhore or player.

The group itself is interesting I loved the idea of changing members to increase the sound. Stone Butterfly reminded me of a smaller version of The Polyphonic Spree (who I'm a big fan of) and I loved the composition elements of the plot.

With Levi's position comes a lot of attention and fame. This also means MANY groupies, some of whom seem determined to come between Brooklynn and Levi.


Oh Brooklynn! I honestly wasn't sure what to make of her. I respected her dedication to her sister and her loyalty, but her constant back and forth did annoy me. I did find her a little wishy washy at times. Don't get me wrong, I did like her most of the time but just wanted her to display a little more sass, to kick some butt. 



I'm not going to discuss the title because it's a MASSIVE spoiler. I will say the mystery element kept me guessing for a while and I liked the unexpected twist. For me the interaction between Levi and Brooklynn seemed a little awkward at times. I kept wondering whether people really do say some of the things they did (yes Levi I mainly mean you) but I did enjoy their story. Plus perhaps this is more about me being a stuffy Brit than anything else.



Another Postcard is a dramatic, musical story which will make you want to find your own rocker and join a band.


3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!






Excerpt:

Levi

Just inside the door, I put my hand on her arm to halt her exit.

“Dinner?”

“Nope.”

“Lunch tomorrow?”

Brooklynn sighed and turned to walk away, but there was a smile flirting around her mouth.

I grabbed her arm to stop her again, pulled her inside and shoved the door shut. Walking her backward, I crowded her up against a wall. Having caught her by surprise, she didn’t protest when I dove my fingers into her hair and angled her head. I didn’t give her any time for her mind to catch up, covering her mouth with my own. She gasped, and I took advantage of the moment, my tongue entering her mouth to lick and tangle with hers. I groaned at her taste, it was fucking incredible, and I knew I was instantly addicted. Her hands had been at her sides but they slowly crept up over my chest, to hold on to my shoulders as though they were the only thing holding her up.



Author Spotlight:
 


I’m a love of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.

I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.

I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter, and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for attention.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!
