Our Review

“You’re the only one I see. When I’m singing to a sea of faces, yours is the one I look for.”

Well, the Stolen Melody Duet was one entertaining, angsty, drama filled read, that’s for sure. If you’re in the mood for one of those Kindle throwing reads where you find yourself shouting at the characters to….communicate, then this sexy, swoony, dramatic and emotional romance is for you!

‘Music has always been my purpose, but Lyric waltzed in and gave substance to it all.’

If there’s one thing we loved about K K Allen’s Up in the Treehouse, it was the relationship build, the intense feeling of love, which was also apparent in the Stolen Melody Duet. Whilst the relationship between Lyric and Wolf was anything but a slow build, we no less believed the magnitude of the attraction and chemistry between these two passionate characters.

“You don’t see it, do you? What you do with words?”

In this rock star romance, K K Allen certainly brought the fabulous -behind the scenes music feel- we crave in these stories, putting us right in the moment with the band; with Lyric and Wolf as they navigated their way through the turbulence and obstacles of life on the road as a rock star.  The force and sensation, the excitement as the band took to the stage made us feel as though we were there.

Both Lyric and Wolf are products of the music industry, destined to be part of the scene thanks to their parents. Lyrics father is a well-respected rocker, her mother….well, she’s another story, and Wolf’s father was also part of the scene, so it was in the stars these two would follow that same path. Lyric behind the scenes, and Wolf Chapman, as the driving force and front man of Wolf, the band.

Both Lyric and Wolf carry self regrets from their pasts, harbouring a lot of pain which is reflected in how each live their lives, finding it hard to trust and let down those walls. Opening up doesn’t come easy for these two, especially so Lyric, who really has been bitten by disloyalty from loved ones.

‘It’s funny how fighting for someone you love gives you more strength than fighting for yourself.’

We have to admit there were times Lyric drove us to distraction. Poor Wolf didn’t know if he was coming or going. Lyric was hiding secrets from her past, Wolf was left in the dark as to what they were, yet was expected to understand Lyric’s hesitancy, a hard ask when he has no idea what her secrets entailed. We kept thinking….just tell him…communicate.

‘Here words are her weapons, and I’ve lost count of how many times she’s stabbed me. All I know is that it fucking hurts.’

We loved the relationship build, the music feel, the secondary characters were all fabulous as were the developing relationships of the Wolf band members, the comradery of the band and the banter between them. The romance was swoony and it was certainly hot, though at times we felt the sex overshadowed the emotional relationship between Lyric and Wolf, but then again, the physical release became a much needed escape and connection for them both.

“I want this,” he says each word in between each thrust. “I want us.”

This was one roller-coaster we didn’t want to get off! We probably would have preferred a little less dramatics, but overall the sexy, swoony and emotional elements we enjoyed far outweighed the odd annoyances.  Fans of angsty rock star romances, who want to feel as though they’re part of the story, and who love having their stomachs (and hearts) tied up in knots; you’ll revel in this duet!

‘He steals my breath, my heart, and my soul, all in one telling kiss.’

Synopsis

DANGEROUS HEARTS BOOK ONE

SYNOPSIS

His heart beats for the music. She’s his favorite song.

Lyric Cassidy knows a thing or two about bad boy rock stars with raspy vocals. In fact, her heart was just played by one. So when she takes an assignment as road manager for the world famous rock star, Wolf, she’s prepared to take him on, full suit of heart-armor intact.

Wolf is the sexy lead singer for the hottest rock band around with a line-up of guaranteed one night stands. Lyric Cassidy isn’t one of them. That’s fine with him. Women like Lyric come with fairytale expectations, so it should be easy to stay away. Too bad she’s hot as sin with a fiery temper and a mouth that drives him wild.

She’s also got something to hide. Something he discovers. Something he wants …

Sharing a tour bus, neither of them are prepared for the miles of road ahead and the fierce attraction they feel toward one another–a dangerous combination.


DESTINED HEARTS BOOK TWO

SYNOPSIS

He stole her lyrics, and then he stole her heart.

Lyric Cassidy is off the tour, lost as to what her next career move will be, and certain that she’ll never love again after Wolf. All because of a social media scandal that left her with no choice but to pack up and face the consequences. When she learns that the fate of her career is in her hands, she has a difficult decision to make. Step back on the tour bus with Wolf and deal with the mess she left behind, or end her contract early and lose her job at Perform Live?

Wolf’s shattered heart finds no resolve in giving Lyric a chance to come back on tour. He can never be with her again. Not after she walked away. Conflicted with wants and needs, he struggles to remember who Wolf was before Lyric. That’s what he needs to become again. Maybe then his heart will be safe. Or maybe there’s no hope for the damaged.

But with stolen dreams, betrayals, and terrifying threats—no one’s heart is safe. Not even the ones that may be destined to be together.
