Laramie Briscoe is one of my favorite authors. Her Heaven Hill series is a series that I cannot get enough of. I was so excited to see that she was writing another series and that it was so different from Heaven Hill.  I loved the concept of this story in how two totally different musical entertainers met at an award show and were instantly attracted to each other. It had everything that I look for in a book and so much more. I absolutely fell in love with not only Hannah and Garrett but the other members of Black Friday and Shell as well. I loved how even though they came for such different worlds they made it work. I love when Hannah sings with Garrett at his show. I am totally gone over this series and cannot wait for more. I am so rooting for Shell and Jared.  Such a great start to a promising series.  Belle's Book Bag Top Pick

Only the Beginning By: Laramie Briscoe Review by: Red's Hot Reads <i> 5 stars!!! Ok Laramie Briscoe fans, this book will definitely be a shocker for your but in a good way. This book is very different from the Heaven Hill series. I read the book in one setting not being able to put it down. (sorry family for ignoring my motherly duties)  Only the Beginning is a story of love, healing, angst, laughter and tears. Garrett &ldquo;Reaper&rdquo; Thompson is the lead singer in the rock band &ldquo;Black Friday.&rdquo; Harmony &ldquo;Hannah&rdquo; Stewart is country music&rsquo;s princess. They meet by chance and that is all she wrote. But it is Only the Beginning of their roller coaster relationship. Let me just say I LOVED GARRETT! He could be my man any day. Hannah has emotional baggage. Garrett patiently helps her through her trust issues and stands by his woman. The sex in the book is very tastefully done and leaves plenty to your imagination. Its nice for a change of pace, don&rsquo;t get me wrong I love a steamy scene but the scenes in this book fit the story. I love the relationship between Garrett and his folks. The humorous banter between Garrett and his Mom was a nice added touch. The secondary characters Jared &ldquo;Train&rdquo;, Shell &ndash; Hannah&rsquo;s assistant, Bradley &ldquo;Raven&rdquo; and Chris &ldquo;Nightmare&rdquo; all were perfect additions to the book. I am looking forward to Jared and Shell&rsquo;s story and maybe Bradley and Stacey&rsquo;s story. (wink-wink).  As with Laramie&rsquo;s other books there is a heavy subject matter that is covered and this book happens to be domestic violence. As usual she handles the subject well and makes you feel the emotions of the character in-depth. The characters in this book feel very real. You feel what they do and see what they do. With each new book that Laramie writes they just keep getting better and better. Several points in the book I wanted to throw my kindle at the wall because Hannah had me wanting to throttle her. Angst galore (curse words here) This is good writing to be able to provoke my emotions in this manner. I had to take some antacids to calm the burning in my stomach. I hate it when I torcher myself this way. But it was well worth it. You will not be disappointed in Only the Beginning. I will be recommending it to everyone. This books title should be an indicator that this is Only the Beginning of the story or series. It has a somewhat HEA (resolving of some issues) but the story will be continued in future books. I am happy about this because I need the nice little bow and you do not get that in this book, but soon I know. Laramie Briscoe is one of my favorite authors and I know she will continue to dazzle me. Thanks Laramie!!!</i>
