    an amazing rockstar romance

    Hot chemistry, romance, drama, and perceived betrayal make up this gripping rockstar romance. Heart Throb is the 7th book in this author’s Hearts of Metal series, but it can be read as a standalone. There is some character overlap, but I only read book 1 and had no trouble following along. I always love a good, dark, broody hero and Brand is just that. The surly bass player of Vicious is accurately known as “the man who never smiles” and Oscar the Grouch. He wants to avoid love and relationships because of his secret, troubled past. He is hot, sexy, and vulnerable and my heart completely broke for him when his troubled childhood was revealed. I loved Lexi in that she is a strong character and was able to break away from her past to pursue her dream of becoming a film director. She works hard and wants to be respected in her field . She is immediately drawn to Brand as he is to her. The two make a good couple in that they have amazing chemistry and they play on each others strengths and faults. Heart Throb is an entertaining read that moves at a good pace, thus keeping you entertained until the very end. Both Brand and Lexi are likable characters and are well developed. It was also great to see the other band members of Vicious and Bleeding Vengeance. On a more random note, what many people don’t realize is that there are various types of heavy metal such as thrash metal, sleaze metal, death metal, etc and I loved how the author dove into the different metal genres. I really enjoyed this book and I am definitely going back to read the rest of the series and I hope that this is not the final book in her Hearts of Metal series. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.

    Gritty with lots of emotion.

    Another wonderful, gritty story in the world of Vicious. This time it was Brand's backstory. His past was full of pain which he kept locked inside, and I felt for him as he revealed it to Lexi. I loved Lexi's spunk to be what she wanted, to move beyond her own unhappy past, and to accept without pity Brand's past. As the story moved along, I became invested in the outcome and cried when it ended. With this story, Brooklyn Ann touched me deep once again with the emotions in the story. I recommend this story and the series. I received an ARC of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

    Perfect rockstar romance <3

    This is the seventh and unfortunately the final book in the series but it can definitely be read as a standalone. Lexi is well aware of her looks and doesn’t need to be reminded of them every five seconds. At this point in her life she’s more concerned about making a butt-kicking documentary about the metal band Vicious and fulfilling her dream of making a feature horror film. She just needs to stop worrying about (and staring at) the grouch in the band in order to meet her deadline. Brand, the bassist of the band, is that grouch. He’s had a tough childhood and doesn’t let anyone get close. Letting people into his life means giving them a chance to hurt him and he’s tired of that. Not even the model-look-alike disrupting his life is going to change that. Lexi and Brand were a super cute couple. They both tried to deny their attraction from the beginning and so drama and plenty of laughs ensued when they pretended there was no chemistry between them. Brand might have acted all gruff and indifferent at times but he had some deeps scars that made him act that way. Luckily Lexi saw past that dark exterior and focused more on the man that worried about and cared for her. He made some huge mistakes along the way but he learned his lessons and proved he was capable of love. I don’t want this series to end because I need more from all of the bands! I loved the way each character was not only depicted as skilled at what they did but also as imperfect, vulnerable, normal human beings. I also appreciate how they went through some ordinary, real life situations because that made them even more real. Like when Lexi was having some bad cramping and everyone kept commenting on her looks instead of how she was feeling… yeah, that right there made me want to hug the author! Situations like that happened in all of the books and man, I loved those little bits in each of the books. You can also tell the author loves the metal rock world by the way she describes it and lets us readers be a part of it. I didn’t think I was a fan but after going behind the scenes of the music I know I will give it a try. This was a fabulous read, with well-developed characters and a fascinating setting. I definitely recommend it. *I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher*
