If you've ever lost a sibling this book is spot on with the reality of emotional detachment.

I have been reading mainly romance books. Not saying this one isn't... but there's so much more to it. Grief, love, family, anger and damn girl did you really just do that! I can't read the next one in the series!

Cassady is with Teagan who is a friend from her youth. Six months earlier Cassady’s brother Jason had died and she having problems moving on. Teagan has won passes to a Demi Jade concert. Cassady is to start an internship for the CEO of Chambers and Brit for the summer. Teagan gets mad at Cassady and goes to the arena where the concert is to be held with both tickets on her. Gage was a singer and played the guitar , he was the warm up act before the concert. Gage comes to the table Cassady is at and agrees to have a drink . Cassady was drunk and left with Gage but he would not take advantage of her in that state. I loved this story a guy who has morals and did not take advantage of someone who is drunk who is throwing herself at him [ is there still such men ]. I loved the characters in this story especially Cassady and all the twists and turns she goes through to try to heal from Jason’s death and be her own person. Also Gage and how really sweet he was. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

This was the first book I bought by this author and definitely not the last! I loved every minuteof it and couldn't put it down! Everytime I thought I was going to know what happened next, it surprised me a little. I was definitely torn between characters at some pointo but I loved the ending. If you want a fun, flirty and intense read I recommend this one!

I love this book. It is about grief and love. It's about the stupid mistakes that sometimes you make during your grief to protect yourself. I loved following Cassidy's story of finding herself again after the loss of her brother. The awfulness coping with death and the happiness of finding love at the same time.

Rock & Release Summer Love Series, by Riley Edgewood Genre:  Romance, Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I was looking forward to this but at first it dragged a bit. I found Cassidy a bit hard to like, though as the story continued and we saw some of the issues troubling her and how she was dealing with them I felt a lot more sympathetic to her, and understood more about how and why she acted as she did. Gage - Oh Gage, what a terrific man he was. So patient when most guys would have given Cassidy the heave ho, but he knew there was something between them that was worth waiting for. Even the most patient of men have a breaking point though, and he also has issues from his past affecting the present. At times Cassidy seemed very young, very immature whereas Gage always felt that bit older, with an outlook that considered first not just reacted as she did.   The first 40% I almost gave up at times, I just wasn’t really being pulled into the story, couldn’t somehow get to grips with it and then suddenly it became such that I just could not put it down. Waiting for my friend in Morrisons for our usual Monday breakfast I got caught out. Didn’t see her, didn’t hear her and when she tapped my shoulder and said hello I almost jumped out of my skin. I was away, with Gage, Cassidy and Luca.....that’s the best book isn’t it – those that transport you into the story, make you feel part of it. I was so angry with Cassidy at times, so cross with Luca and inwardly yelling “don’t be so stupid!! What about....” but of course if they’d listened to me it’d be a dull book ; –)   So after that slow start the story raced along for me, gave me all the drama and emotion I wanted and was a fantastic read, and became one I’d reread – I just love drama and angst...I’m looking forward to more in the series.   . Stars:Four, if it wasn’t for that slow start this would be a five, certainly the drama part made it. ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers. If you enjoyed my review I'd love it if you would please click “Like” and if you didn't I'd love to know why, in case I've inadvertently added a spoiler and need to edit.

Cassidy's summer break has finally arrived and while her dad has plans for her to start a summer internship at his company, Cassidy decides that she has different plans. She desperately needs to escape her life, her responsibilities and her brother's recent death. A strange turn of events lands Cassidy in a precarious situation with her best friend, her family, a handsy manager at a bar and a sexy musician. Cassidy's idea of a carefree summer quickly morphs into something else that she isn't quite ready for. I am not a big fan of novellas. I don't understand this new craze that seems to be spreading like wildfire in the writing world. Why would you want to write a full length book just to decide to break it into three different sections. I'm not an author, so maybe you have to be in that club to understand the motivations behind that kind of decision. Anyhow ... When I found out that Edgewood's three novellas were being put into one book, I was all for it. I was really interested in the summary and I thought that it would be something fun to read. I'm glad that I did pick this one up and while I found it a little eye-roll worthy at times, it was a good book that I enjoyed. I don't know that I would read it again, but I enjoyed it this time. I found the characters to be pretty endearing, mostly Gage ... I thought that he was perfect and behaved exactly how I would expect a guy in his situation to act. My heart broke for him a little bit at the end and that made me love him even more. Riley Edgewood can construct some pretty amazing characters. Funnily enough, I didn't like the main character as much as I liked Gage and that doesn't happen very often. Cassidy just felt shallow and fake to me throughout most of the book and it wasn't interesting to read. Her interactions with the other characters was interesting enough to keep me hooked though. All of the twists and turns within these pages was nice. I didn't expect a lot of the things that ended up happening, which is refreshing. But some of the scenes were a little ... much. Now, I'm not friends with someone in a massive band and I have no clue what goes on back stage but .... Some of the stuff with the band just seemed so far fetched. But what the heck do I know. Anyhow. I probably won't read this one again but I might pick something up by this author again. For the most part, I liked her writing style and a lot of her characters. * I received this book in exchange for an honest review *
