Review of Encore by Lori Toland
Encore by Lori Toland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
With this being the final book in The Replacement Guitarist series, I thought that Ms. Toland would’ve gotten over ripping out my heart and stomping on it. But she didn’t. Apparently she saw this as her final opportunity to torture my poor heart because that sucker has most definitely been put through the ringer … repeatedly. I don’t know how Blaze and Jason put up with her. But seriously, Encore is a heart wrenching love story and the perfect ending to this series.
Without giving too much away to those readers who haven’t yet read the previous books (and seriously, why haven’t you?), Into The Fire left me wondering whether or not Jason and Blaze were going to come back from their break-up and this question was not answered quickly by any means. Of course, I hoped that they (and I) were going to get their happy ending, but time and time again life, lies, and misunderstandings continued to keep them apart. Just when I think everything is finally going to work out, BAM, somebody throws the door open to let more issues in and I felt like I had the misfortune of being between the wall and that door hurtling towards my face. But fortunately, Blaze loves Jason so much that he keeps giving him another chance even when he fears having his heartbroken one too many times by Jason. Thank goodness for crazy love … and make-up sex. HOT!!!!
I have enjoyed this series immensely and am so glad I got the opportunity to review books three and four because had I not, who knows when I would have finally read my copy of The Replacement Guitarist and that just makes me sad. I love Blaze and Jason and am very happy with the way Ms. Toland ended their story, but I will miss them; thank goodness for re-reads. So if you’re looking for a love story with some hot m/m action, a bit of the rock & roll lifestyle, and an awesome cast of characters, check out The Replacement Guitarist series and don’t forget the tissues.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
