Revelry (Taint #1) by Carmen Jenner REVIEW

Cooper Ryan is living the dream. Between the parties with rock royalty, booze, groupies and performing to crowds of thousands with his band Taint, life seems pretty sweet. There’s just one thing missing: the feisty little red-head that took his baby and ran off with his heart. Throwing himself into music is the only thing keeping him sane.

Until a run-in with a nonplussed, package-wielding PA throws everything off balance.

Ali Jones is having a craptastic life. Her grandmother died, leaving her homeless, penniless, and alone, and her boyfriend left her for a tramp who takes her clothes off for money. That’s why when she lands her dream job at a record company it seems like it’s too good to be true.

Because it is.

Slapped with an ultimatum, Ali must decide if facing the horror of the unemployment line is a fate worse than going on the road with four rowdy rockers hell-bent on making her life misery.

He’s adored by millions.
She’s not even loved by her cat.

Can they ignore their hatred long enough to survive the tour from hell? Or will their chemistry force everything to come crashing down around them?

Review

★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

 

This was one hot book and I am definitely a new fan to this Aussie author. Revelry is the first in a new series following the rock band Taint.

Cooper Ryan was first introduced in Carmen’s first book ‘Enjoy Your Stay’ when his girlfriend and baby mamma Holly, left him heartbroken. Don’t worry though, this is a complete standalone so it is not necessary to have read it prior.

Feeling rejected and bitter, he is now a famous rockstar along with his childhood friends Levi, Zed & Ash. Enjoying semi-fame, they have been scheduled to go on a world tour in order to catapult their status to rock Gods.

When a red haired beauty, resembling Holly literally falls to his feet during a meeting with their record label, Coop decides that he will negotiate her into his demands.

Ali is homeless, after being kicked out of her recently deceased grandmothers house, she is now living in her car with her inherited crazy cat and finds it impossible to refuse to be the band’s new PA, even though she hates these cocky bastards on sight.

This is not your regular love story, what appears to be a growing attraction between Ali and Coop, turns into a poly-amorous relationship which promises to deliver some scorching hot sex scenes and delicious sexual tension.

Levi Quinn is Coops band mate, and along with his 12 inch cock, he is never short of women. Ali soon sees behind the mask and finds it hard to resist his charm and sex appeal.

If you aren’t into sharing in your books, then this may not be the book for you. But for me, HELL YES.

After a sizzling start however, things don’t run smoothly for the sexy threesome. Fame and jealousy soon turn their affair into a hot mess of emotional turmoil and unfortunately for one of the three, a decision has to be made as to the future of their relationship for the good of their hearts and the band.

I loved all of the characters in this book, Ali with her potty mouth, Coop with his all round sweetness and Alpha ways, Levi with his arrogance and the rest of the band were cool too. Oh and lets not forget Coops sister, Debbie who seems to have a soft spot for Zed (I can’t wait for that book if my inkling is right)

There were some very LOL moments too, which if you don’t mind a bit of juvenile humour every now and again, will definitely have you smiling.

Overall, it was a very witty and sexy book, with a spattering of emosh.

This is the first in a series of stand-alone novels, told in dual POV.

ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an honest review
