About the Author

Mercy Brown is a writer and musician from New Jersey.

In 2002, Mercy married her guitarist and effectively retired from sleeping on other people's floors. She turned to fanfiction as a creative outlet in 2009 after her sons were born and soon after began writing books that resembled fic of the indie music scene.

This was a really great read, especially for the money! A very unique main character voice, and the whole story had an original, special, different tone. I loved that it takes place in the 90's, and it makes being in a band sound so cool, I might start one. Recommended!

This book was great!! I loved that the characters had a very strong friendship to being with, I love that Travis always always always looked out and put Emmylou before himself. He was her rock and her friend and the first person person she wanted to tell things to. Emmy was so focused on the music that she could not see what was right in front of her. I mean when you find your unicorn you have to hold on to them......I would love to read about these two more.....like where they ended up and how they weathered the storm :)

Loud is how I love you Loud is how I know you’re there Stay loud so I don’t lose you I will follow the sound of you anywhere Loud Is How I Love You is the debut novel by author Mercy Brown, and I gotta tell you, she knocked it out of the park with this one. From the moment you pick up this book, you are pulled into the story of Emmy and Travis. Emmy has one goal and that is to have her band make it big. So, in order to accomplish that, she has one simple rule: Don’t sleep with the band. Too bad, following that rule isn’t so easy. You see, there’s always been a connection between Emmy and Travis, but they’ve never acted on it….until one night. You see this one night, they played an epic show and well, one thing led to another and suddenly Emmy and Travis find themselves having the best sex of their life. Emmy tries desperately to not make a big deal out of it, even though she knows Travis wants more. She tries to stay away, but she just can’t. Will Emmy and Travis make a go at something that has the potential to be amazing or will Emmy risk it all for the sake of the band and making it big?? There’s only one way to find out… I have to say, I really enjoyed Loud Is How I Love You. I loved the story-line. I found it be a very refreshing take on a rock-n-roll romance. I thought the writing was smart and engaging. I liked the characters right away and found them easy to connect with. I loved the chemistry between Emmy and Travis. I thought they had great push and pull. Yes, I did want to either shake or slap Emmy a few times. She made some terrible decisions over her fear of ruining the band. But, she’s young, and I thought that it was a very honest take on her feelings and it made the journey to HEA, all that more better–in my opinion. Loud Is How I Love is a fantastic debut novel. It gave me everything that I was looking for and more. The story is well paced and is full of angst, drama, and lots of sweet romance. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and can not wait to read more from this author in the future. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review*

Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog I will start this by saying I knew I shouldn’t have done it. I go into these reads expecting one thing when I know by the genre I’ll probably get a different one. I think I’ve learned my lesson, though. I can only hope. LOUD IS HOW I LOVE YOU had some things about it that I liked. It’s a rock star romance between two members of an up and coming New Jersey band. The author definitely has been in the scene herself or did some really good research because her knowledge about it and the music business did come across. Sometimes a bit too much. But it added a fun element to the story that is not the norm in other rock star romances. I also liked that their band was starting out and for the most part they’re just doing their job and trying to do it well. Not getting trashed at the first opportunity and acting like entitled brats. That goes for the music aspect. The romance? Emmy and Travis are young, they’re struggling through college and playing gigs whenever they can. And as a rule, band members should never get involved. Until they have sex. All should be good right? I mean Travis is sexy, Emmy seems to be his perfect other half and they’re really into each other… Except I think Emmy is neurotic. And even quite a bit selfish and self centered. She freaks out about having sex with Travis and the impact this will have on the band. Repeatedly. As in, the whole book. And I could only feel bad for Travis because every time she throws a tantrum it only comes across as her not loving him and only caring about the band. Until the very end. If you ask me, he could’ve done better. Although I found myself skimming a bit as I was losing interest, I also noticed that being in Emmy’s head was a bit like being on a caffeine high. She was a bit much for me to handle and I really wanted out of her brain! There were still some salvageable parts of this story that made me finish it. The music aspect was interesting to read, as I mentioned above. I really enjoyed when they actually wrote the song together, and I thought the lyrics were great. But mainly I wanted Travis to get an HEA. That poor guy, he was a truly nice guy. So my conclusion is I can tell you this was just not the right book for me and hopefully I’ll listen to that quiet voice next time.

Emmy is in one out of three bands with female leads. Their band is called Stars On The Floor. Emmy broke one of the cardinal rules and had sex with the guitarist Travis, who is also one of her best friends. This was an awesome story. I loved how Emmy was so confused but still managed. There were a lot of ups and downs and some heartbreak, but it's all part of this great story. I loved the plot and of course the story. The characters were awesome. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review
