REVIEW BLITZ ~ Revelry by Carmen Jenner

 

 

Title: Revelry

Series: Taint #1

Author: Carmen Jenner

Genre: Erotic Romance

Release Date: May 25, 2015

 


 

Blurb

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?

Excerpt

My vision is partly obstructed by Ali, but the sight of her head bobbing as she takes him in her mouth is all I need to know what’s going on. Levi meets my gaze across the limo. There’s gloating there—that much is obvious—but there’s also understanding. When you spend as much time together as we do, you come to know your bandmates pretty well. For all his talk, he’s not as big of a douche as he claims to be. He may not ever sleep with the same woman more than once—with the exception of Ali, I guess—but I know he’s not immune to the loneliness our lifestyle creates. It’s strange how you can be adored by millions and yet completely alone all at the same time.

He slides his hand into her hair and closes his eyes, throwing his head back against the seat.“Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck,” he whispers, and then he gathers her hair to the side and shifts her body so that my view is completely unobstructed. I watch as she works her hands up his shaft in time with her mouth. He doesn’t attempt to fuck the back of her throat and make her choke on it, the way we both had that first night we fucked her. Instead, his touch is gentle. Reverent.It makes me crazy, and hot as fucking hell. I shift uncomfortably, adjusting my cock within my jeans. I don’t make a move towards them, though I want to. I want to bury myself inside her and mark her as mine, but at this point the lines are so fucking blurred it doesn’t matter whom she belongs to. Him. Me. The both of us, or neither one.I lean forward, taking a glass from the shelf and a crystal decanter filled with amber liquor, and I pour myself a drink, and then I slide back into the leather to watch.

“Play with yourself, Red,” he whispers.

“No.”

“Do it,” I say, and she turns around to glare at me. I can’t tell if she’s disappointed I’m not joining in, or if she forgot I was even here.

“I don’t want—”

“Why are you suddenly so embarrassed?” I say sharply, swigging back more of the scotch than I should.

“I’m not embarrassed. I’d actually rather that you joined in.”

“I’m watching,” I say, eyeing her coolly over my glass. She scowls at me a moment and then she kneels up, steadying herself with one hand on Levi’s thigh. She wriggles her skirt up over her hips and bends over. Everything is on display as she takes him in her mouth again. I close my eyes, not wanting to watch her on her knees in front of him, her head bent low, her full fuck-me lips wrapped around Levi’s cock. I feel as if I’m on a ride that’s spinning out of control and I can’t find a way off. I can’t make it stop. And I so badly want it to stop.


BLP Review ~ Rebecca

Oh my Lordy!!
**Fans face while running for vibrator and new batteries**

Carmen Jenner you naughty saucy minx you!
Where the fuck do I start?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Circle Jerk
Vegas
Wax on Wax off
Elevator Sex
12 inches……………….
Holy huge dick batman!
DP
Kisses
The Feels……..
The emotion……..
The humour……..

As per usual chock full (tempted to say cock full!) of every Carmen Jenner trademark but supersized (yes, pun intended). I totally expected the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, it’s a rock band FFS plus Carmen, but I should have known that she would also give me the feels, make me hurt for Ali, feel every torn piece of Coop’s soul and breathe fresh air into this totally oversaturated genre. These boys are out of control and hilarious while breaking your heart. Levi and Zed in particular I adored and am so looking forward to their stories. It’s a love triangle with so many laugh out loud moments it’s ridiculous, so many highlights on the kindle I might as well just highlight the book, the most seriously hot sex I’ve read in a while, all with hot as sin, sexy as fuck rock stars and sassy, strong willed women.

The beauty of any book Ms Jenner writes is the feels, you cringe in embarrassment, have the lump in your throat from the poignancy (and possibly Levi’s cock), have the multiples because damn, does she do good sex, then have your heart shredded and put back together all while enjoying every damn minute of it and feeling like you are there. Her characters come alive, are 3D and memorable, what more could you ask for in a story?

My only gripe and the reason it’s four and a half stars not five was the ending. It’s not a cliff-hanger but it’s not complete either, I kind of felt a little like there were pages missing, would have preferred it either ended with a not knowing the last bit or known a little more but I’ll probably read the next one and take that back!

I trust the author, love her work and thoroughly enjoyed Revelry, a fabulous start to the series from the very saucy Carmen Jenner.

From the moment Andrew Wise and McKenzie Evans first met, they tried to fight the magnetism that pulled them together. No matter how hard they struggled with their feelings, their love was a force so strong that neither of them could deny it.

The news of Olivia Hamilton’s pregnancy, and the understanding that Drew is the father, led McKenzie to flee with the hope of rectifying her secret betrayal of falling in love with her best friend’s boyfriend. However, when Drew showed up and declared his undying love for her, McKenzie could no longer deny the truth. She and Drew were destined for each other. McKenzie now has no choice but to face Olivia in order for her and Drew to move on with their lives together. Secrets and lies may have kept them apart, but now, in the light of the truth, their legacy shines as pure as their love.

For as long as Drew can remember, there has always been tension between him and his father, Jonathan. This time is proving no different. Since sharing the truth of his past with McKenzie, Drew is emboldened by her unwavering love and acceptance of the man he is. He’ll do anything necessary to protect the woman he loves and the life he’s come to understand she deserves. With Jonathan and Olivia teamed together to rip them apart, Drew and McKenzie, along with the aid of some unexpected allies, must join forces to overcome the obstacles that will inevitably come their way.

In this much anticipated final installment of The Truth in Lies Saga, Drew and McKenzie will unite together to conquer the past, face the future, and uncover the truth in lies that threaten to destroy them. Love brought them together and love will set them free.
