Hey y'all! Rock Chick Fairy here! I'm bringing in another new thing... BACK2BACK FAIRY REVIEWS! These are books that were read one after the other (series).
First stop... KYLIE RYANS SERIES BOOKS 2 AND 3!!!
✿✿✿ GIRL ON TOUR ✿✿✿
I asked for more hot scenes on the second book.. and I got that! haha! This book was so damn hot! Well, at least when our characters are not out there touring and trying hard to hold on to each other.
This book made me think more of LDRs (long distance relationships) and its horrors. For some people, it's okay, but for some... like if you both are popular artists who get to be photographed 24/7.. it could go from bad to worse.
I admire both characters' tenacity here. Hell, I even admire the ending! I admire it because Trace finally manned up and started thinking more about his future and what he's doing to himself. Kylie on the other hand, I liked it that she was more of an "I'll-say-whatever-I-wanna-say" girl here. Frankly speaking, she deserves better, so that's why I approve of the ending.
Okay, gotta go finish the third one now. Honestly, I'm glad I read this pretty late. I bet I can't stand the cliffhanger-ish ending if the next book isn't available yet! haha
P.S. Sorry about this really short review, I am on a tight schedule y'know? haha! Running now to get the next one!
✿✿✿ GIRL IN LOVE ✿✿✿
MOVE OVER ROCK STARS. LET'S MAKE WAY FOR COUNTRY!
These two country artists made my whole week!
I followed Kylie and Trace's story from books 1 and 2 that I feel as if I'm already close to the two characters. I feel like I know them. Do you know what I mean? I'm being my creepy self, making out characters into real people.. but yeah, I feel as if I really know them. It's a nice feeling. Especially because I trusted that the author will give me a great ending. She didn't disappoint. :)
After THAT ending of the second book, I really had to grab the third one. I wanted to find out how their story will be concluded.
Kylie and Trace sort of ended things on book 2, so I was automatically looking forward to their "getting back together" scene. I thought that they would immediately get back together like in chapter 2 or something, but NO. The author had a different plan. She made me wait. A LOT. I can't say that I didn't like it though. I think they needed a lot of time apart. They needed to know more things about themselves. However, that doesn't erase the fact that I was also frustrated towards both of them.
It's a love-hate relationship to me since I hated that they just couldn't make up, say their "I love yous" and just make me happy... but I loved their "I want you bad, but I can't say it" scenes.
I ate up all the internal monologues like when Trace didn't really say what he wanted to say.
"Because I love you. I miss you. I need you and I can't stand having to be on the same planet as you if I can't have you."
Yes, that's just one of Trace's uber sweet internal monologues! Isn't that the cutest? Awww-inspiring?
Gosh, if only Kylie knew this right away. She wouldn't have moped around like a robotic-love-sick-zombie. Yes, she literally lost her will to have a great life. When I read her POV's before they got back together, it was like reading the POV of a completely different character. She was so outspoken in book 2 that I found it hard to cope with the drastic change in her.
Eventually, I understood where she's coming from. I just rooted for her and waited.. and waited.. and waited for her to just throw herself on Trace or something. ;p
Trace on the other hand, did a very good job of avoiding temptation after his stint in rehab. I love how willing he was to change for Kylie. He also was figuring out if Kylie was also a trigger. Personally, I think Kylie could be an anchor for him to keep sober. I wanted him to just be open to Kylie regarding his problem. I think Kylie would've taken him no matter what.
Even though they didn't get back together right away, I still had fun reading about his jealous scenes. Sorry, but I really would've preferred if Steven really went for Kylie and Kylie becomes confused with the two of them. Am I seriously asking for a love triangle? Nah. haha. I don't think I can handle that. Trace overcame his insecurities though and when he finally found the courage to talk to Kylie,
Anyway, not only is Trace a good guy towards Kylie... I also admire him so much because he is a SUPER BIG BROTHER. SUPER like Superman! haha. He can just do anything for his family. I love that best because it shows just how caring he can be.
All in all, The story was a bit predictable, corny in some chapters, frustrating sometimes... but still, IT WILL HOLD YOUR INTEREST (ahem, my interest would be Trace, so.... haha! ).
Giving love a second chance was always hot to me... now it became hotter and more meaningful!
Please give this one a shot if you haven't already. It's worth your time, money and effort. :)
I'm giving both of these books 5 fairy wings!
