    Not bad but not great either

    Meant for YA readers. Sex, drugs, loss, rock & roll, heartache then happy endings.

    What makes the most money for this business? Dead rock stars. - Courtney Love

    Adolescents are attracted to tragic heroes. That's why rock stars dress like homeless people. Adolescence is a fall. It's when every child becomes an orphan. - Heather O'Neill

    This is the first book by Sarah Dosher I have read, and it will not be my last. Which is sort of odd, as this isn’t usually a book I would have picked up on my own. The whole “angsty rock star” thing has just never done it for me. However, to say that Ms. Dosher pleasantly surprised me with her handling of the storyline is a vast understatement. It grabbed me from the first and didn’t let go until the last page.

    This is very much a ‘different’ sort of rock-n-roll story. Eli Blue Savage grew up in a modern day fairy tale. The daughter of a rock superstar, Eli lived backstage at rock concerts, mostly bored out of her brain, but thrilled to be with her father, a famous “Rock God” guitarist. With a mother who rocks the “evil, psychotic” stereotype, Eli finds herself immersed in the backstage lifestyle with a father who adores her beyond all reason. That is, until her beloved father succumbs to a drug overdose leaving Eli to find his body. One wonders, of course, how a loving father could put his daughter into a position where this could happen – but that whole “rock god lifestyle” was apparently too much for Savage to resist, and Eli found herself alone.

    Eli still manages to hold her life together, even after her devastating loss. She grows up solid and drug free, goes to college, and now she is taking over her father’s music management company, Savage Man. The problem is, her mother. Her drug and alcohol addicted, vicious, psychotic mother who will do anything to bring Eli down and take back the company. A company she nearly ran into the ground under her custodianship until Eli came of age.

    Now in control of a floundering Savage Man, Eli books her first band, The Elle’s, led by her best friend Willow. Willow, who leads Eli to a new possibility – Unforgiven. And while the lead, Duke, isn’t someone who grabbed my attention, Deacon certainly did. Sitting back in the shadows, immersed in the music for the sake of the music, Deacon is a different sort of rock star. And Eli is a different sort of female lead for a romance novel. Strong, determined, and immensely likable, Eli is a charming character. Deacon is charming at times, though with a somewhat dark and edgy feel that keeps him from being either a bland or an archetypical “romance hero.”

    I had a few issues with the book, things I would have handled differently – especially Shaw. But that is the point, isn’t it? We read for a glance into another world, a chance to flow into another reality, another time, another possibility. With a strong undercurrent of suspense, thriller, and mystery as well as a strong and well-written romance, Ms. Dosher pulls her story off in spades, introducing characters to love, as well as characters which you will love to hate.

    If you like a romance with an actual story line, this is definitely one to read. I don’t believe you will be disappointed.

    3.75 Stars

    I started A Blue Tale after reading another book that left me with a serious book hangover. I was looking for a rock star romance (because this girl unashamedly loves those!) that would draw me into the music scene and leave me feeling happy. I found that in A Blue Tale, and so much more!

    This is my first book by Sarah Dosher. She’s a fairly newer author to the publishing scene and after reading A Blue Tale, I’ll be watching for more from her in the future. This is a sweet, sexy romance with some darker edges to it that I completely didn’t expect.

    One of the things I loved the most was the treatment of music. I could practically feel the passion of music coursing through my soul as it does in the souls of Eli Blue and Deacon, the main characters. It was a potent and soulful aspect that I felt tied all the characters together, including their friends and family.

    Eli Blue and Deacon originally meet in a somewhat unusual way and hooked me right in. From the very beginning, I felt their connection. I loved the humor, the passion, and the sweetness to their story. However, there’s also a love triangle in A Blue Tale involving Shaw, Eli’s long-time friend and sometime lover. There are some darker parts that surface in this story that ends in a tough decision, and one that proves to be extremely painful. The emotions and the outcome were extremely vivid and had my heart aching.

    This book flowed so smoothly for me and I found myself at the end before I knew it! If anything, I felt I had some unanswered questions related to Eli’s dad that were hinted at but not resolved. Maybe my inner sleuth was trying to find deeper reasons that were just not there? Overall, A Blue Tale was just what I needed to while away some time immersed in music and musicians.

    **JUST BOOKED received an ARC for a Honest Review** A KICK-ASS

    **JUST BOOKED received an ARC for a Honest Review**

    A KICK-ASS ROCKER VERSION OF A CINDERELLA FAIRY-TALE, BUT WITH SCUMBAGS RATS INSTEAD MICE AND A DEACON FOR
    A DAMN PRINCE CHARMING!

    A Blue Tale is about Elizabeth Blue Savage. Eli is the daughter of rock star legend Kirk Savage. Eli grew up with in the music industry,
    but she also spent her entire life believing in fairytales. She thought her Prince Charming would appear one day would come and
    rescue her until she had a streak of heartbreaks and she suddenly stops believing.  

    Eli meets Deacon Chastain one day while he was trying to sneak backstage to meet her idol, Kirk Savage. Eli and Deacon immediately
    become friends while waiting for her dad, the young Eli and Deacon entertain each other. Who knew years later they would meet again,
    but slightly different adult circumstances. 

    “I looked at her blushed cheeks, and her soulful eyes, and knew my life would never be the same. I just wasn’t sure if it would be a
    one-night life changing experience, or one that changed me forever. Truthfully, I wanted that change, I needed to become someone I
    wasn’t. Because that guy was a certified bastard that seriously needed his ass kicked…A verbal ass kicking that consisted of three
    short, simple, yet sweet words – Eli Blue Savage.” - Deacon

    Eli and Deacon were now grown adults fighting demons of their past, but can they both overcome their demons to move forward with
    their futures.

    “Suck it up, Buttercup…drop it and move forward – never back.” – Eli

    “Your mind knows mine, your body knows mine. That’s all that matters. Don’t try to make sense of it, just trust what you feel – trust in us.” - Deacon

    Will Eli really understand how helping a little boy meeting his idol shapes the man she knows today as Deacon? Will Eli be able to trust
    her body, heart, and soul with anyone other than herself, so she can allow to love? Will Deacon understand he deserves a better life with
    happiness or will he walk away from the woman he finds his happiness, to only shatter heart? 

    “This is my breath, my heart, my life – without which I would have nothing.” - Deacon

    Author Sarah Dosher’s has done a wonderful job writing a ROCK’IN LOVE STORY that will capture your attention immediately and find
    yourself unable to put the book down. You will also experience a roller coaster of emotions from feeling SCARED, SAD, SUSPENSEFUL,
    SHOCKED, TRAGEDY, and TENDERNESS. 

    I rate Sarah Dosher’s A Blue Tale– 5 ROCKING STARS!
