Review: SAY IT LOUDER by Heidi Joy Tretheway

Release Date: September 28th, 2016

Type: Series, Book 4, Contemporary, Romance, Rockstars!

My Review:  So this is one of those books I loved and hated. More like I loved some aspects, and greatly disliked others. I think my biggest problem was Willa herself. You know how in pride and prejudice, Elizabeth hates Darcy because he's so proud, but really it was because his comments burned her own pride that she was really upset? That's the kind of vibe I was getting from Willa. She goes on and on about how Dave must think he's better than everyone else because he has money.. but Dave was always super nice to her, it was Willa that acted like a stuck up bee-otch. She just rubbed me the wrong way.

I think what I liked most about this book was the drama - this author knows how to write a truly gritty story. Not only is Dave dealing with his past and demons (Kristina included), but also his feelings of inadequacy when it comes to the band. The soft hearted person in me wishes his band had backed him a little more, but considering their past issues and the future of their career, well... I can see why they did what they did. Overall, this was a good rockstar read, and I would gladly read the rest of the series. 

Cover Lovin': Love it!

Recommendation: I read this just fine without having read the first books, but I can't wait to go back and try them. Especially since the first book is free on Amazon!

Final Rating: THREE out of FIVE stars. I liked this, but my issues with one of the main characters kept me from falling in love with it. 

Happy Reading!

sil-bt-ban   One band. Five love stories. Too many secrets. We’ve been waiting a long time to find out how the band Tattoo Thief will deal with drummer Dave’s toxic ex—and the secrets she’s been collecting on everyone. It was worth the wait. You don’t have to be a fan of the series to love a book that starts fast with a huge wow moment and then unpacks the band’s secrets. In fact, you don’t have to read the earlier books because each book is a different love story about a different member of the band. About Say it Louder: say-it-louder
I had a choice—dump my toxic girlfriend, or break up my band. It should have been easy. But she’s been collecting dirt on all of us for years. Just when I think I’ve hit rock bottom, a pink-haired street artist rocks my world. They call Willa “the Parking Lot Picasso.” I call her my refuge, my center, my last reason to hope. When Willa’s life on the streets collides with a sudden spotlight on her art, I’ll stop at nothing to protect her. But when the spotlight turns on my secret shame, she might be my only salvation.   Grab your copy today: Amazon ebook | iBooks | Kobo | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads | Paperback sil-teaser-3     Get the first book in the Tattoo Thief series free (on iBooks, Amazon, Nook or Kobo), or dive in to Say it Louder by downloading a free extended sample for Kindle or all other devices.
