I had a simple life.
I worked two jobs, made ends meet, and hung out with my mom and twin brother. The other part of my life was about avoiding him, but when SWAT raided my boyfriend’s home, that was the last straw. The boyfriend got tossed and to help me keep busy, my brother talked me into joining their old band again, but I had to be honest. It wasn’t a hard sell. Playing drums was in my blood. I used to be addicted and that craving hadn’t been satisfied in three long years. The only problem was their lead singer.
It was him.
The drums might not have been the only thing I was addicted to. I think I was still addicted to him too.

Full-length novel.

I liked it. I found it to be dark which fits a rock band. Alot of times you read these books and the characters are not realistic. Half way through most of those books I'm like must be a boy band lol.

I'm so glad this was not my first book by Tijan to read! After reading the Fallen Crest series and Carter's series, I was not very impressed with this offering. While the other books drew me in immediately, sadly that never happened. It was easy to fall in love with the characters and feel really connected to them in her other books, that just never happened in the book. The main characters took a back sest to Emerson's drama. I also felt there was a better connection between Briell and Eli than there was with her and Luke. While Tijan has become one of my favorite authors; this book was just not up to her normal standards. I would not reccommend this book unless you have read all of her other works. I would however highly reccommend the FALLEN CREST SERIES!!!! You will not be disappointed with that series.

I’ve been seeing Tijan’s name pop up on my feed for awhile and finally decided that I needed to check her out and see what the buzz was all about and from the first page I was hooked.  There is something about her writing style and flow of it that is easy to read, but though I was hooked I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would.   Luke and Brielle, I liked in general, but they didn’t move me all that much.  I thought that their backstory was well done and there was no doubt that they’d been in love with each other even before they truly understood what that meant.  The catalyst for them not speaking for three years and the reason behind it I can agree with, I mean Brielle, despite her upbringing, was a teenager.  But it was the lack of them actually working anything out in the book that has my feelings towards them somewhat mediocre.  As Dustin pointed out they “Dance around each other.” a lot.  It felt like having a one/two syllable conversation with someone.  They never get to the heart of the matter with each other.  There are a ton of internal conversations so there is no question how they feel about each other, but I’d have liked a little bit more actual conversations between the two. Then there is the Emerson issue.  He was an ass throughout most of the book, and I got why, but I felt that his story was more important than Luke and Brielle’s.  There is nothing wrong with that, but he always seemed to take over the scenes that he was in and dealing with him tended to take over everyone’s lives. Overall I liked this one.  While I may not have loved Luke and Brielle, I did really like Dustin and Elijah, Braden tended to be a little too excitable for me.  The writing was good and flowed well, so I’ll definitely pick up another one of Tijan’s books in the future.

Tijan has yet again outdone herself in her first book in her rock star series. The character portrayals are detailed w reactions to storylines believable. The relationships btwn Luke and Bri as well as among all in the book keep u excited thru the entire well as anxiously waiting for more books to follow. Every time I read a Tijan book it becomes my new favorite...and Sustain did not disappoint

Tijan has easily become one of my one-click-no-matter-what authors! her writing style is off the charts awesome! And Sustain is no exception! I've been waiting for this book ever since I've read Broken & Screwed and learned this one was in the works. I read this in one day. I had to. You can't start this book and then put it down at any time. There's too much action packed goodness in this book! I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed!

This book blew me away. Tijan does it every time. I never have to even question buying her books. I just do it the minute they're released. They are that good.  You could say Sustain is about a small town band making it big. You could say it's about young love turned bad. You could even say it's about overcoming crap childhoods to become something so much bigger than you could ever imagine. But you would be wrong.  Sustain is so much more. It's raw, edgy and full of angst.  Luke, Bri and her twin brother Braden grew up as neighbors. Their common bonds are crap fathers and music. They start a band with Emerson (the twins cousin) and everything is going great until the day Bri finds Luke beaten, bloody and unconscious. That day changed everything for them. Luke watched as Bri moved on to date Eli who is a drug dealer. But soon enough they are brought back together only to realize their need for each other. The chemistry between these two is sizzling hot. I really liked how Luke, Bri, Braden, Emerson, Gunn and even Eli stuck up for one on another when times get hard is pretty amazing. As with every Tijan book, I found myself entranced. From the minute I started until I finished, I couldn't put it down. It's just that good. I highly recommend this book.
