*** I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and as part of the Release tour on my Blog katsbookpromotions ***
Let me first say WOW... I am seriously addicted to Blair Babylon books her imagination whether it be Crime, Rockstar or Billionaire, She creates a world where you are immersed with colourful and diverse characters and situations that you don't want to escape from, in fact after finishing this book I clicked on the Free copy link and downloaded Rae's story! I look forward to seeing what URBAN FANTASY she will deliver us soon :D
I first got addicted to Blairs writing with What a Girl Wants and of course Zan was a character that got noticed and added to the 'Want to read his story" list. So when I got the request for the tour I jumped in and signed up.
I had not read Blair's other series The Devilhouse Books: Rae where you first meet Georgie, but I did not find it hard to get to like these characters from this series,
These characters are interesting enough on their own, but together, they just SHINE!
I don't do spoilers so I am not going to say much other than to say that Georgie's father caused her to change her identity and alter her destiny, one minute she is in the rich club and studying classical music, but when her world comes crashing down (somewhere in the other series I guess) she swaps the privileged life and private music school for a new identity and goes to Law school, leaving her music career behind.
Unfortunately that past life catches up to her, but shes always had an exit strategy and is ready to run, but when her BFF rings her up to say she must attend her Impromptu wedding in Paris, she decides that Paris maybe far enough away to loose the people who found her. At the wedding she meets Alexandre, now Alex has an alter ego, which Georgie has no idea about - Alex is non other than Xan Valentine, the Workaholic lead singer to the band Killer Valentine.
Blair unravels Xan's layers for us in this book and we see the man behind the rock god, He has a very interesting past and now I can see why he was so distant in Rhiannon's story.
As I said I haven't read the other series so even though Georgie maybe familiar to some readers, I didn't have a problem getting to know her, but I do look forward to exploring her character and learning how she came to be the person she is in this book by reading The Devilhouse series.
The one thing I will recommend about buying a kindle version of some books is the extra facilities that the digital age has advantage over. This book is music themed, and Blair has taken full advantage of the option to Hyper-linking music videos in the book, which I LOVE!!!
I do love classical music well some of it anyway and you get the chance to hear pieces that Georgie and Alex play, or love.
Blair Babylon has a great talent when it comes to making her characters and places come to life and the writing is again excellent, this was an ARC I read and there were hardly any issues with it.
heres one of my favourite descriptive bits:
The deceptively office-like hallways of The Devilhouse meandered through the building like a labyrinth. Sometimes Georgie surmised that it was to confuse clients so they would be more vulnerable. Other times, she assumed that the architect mush have been dead drunk.
I will admit I was drinking read wine at the time and my imagination just took flight with how the big house would be like a maze.
Blair has a broad genre base in her writing which suits me down to the ground because I love reading lots of different genres - so I will be adding all the books to my TBR because I doubt I would be disappointed.
