Rock & Release Summer Love Series, by Riley Edgewood

Genre:  Romance,

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

I was looking forward to this but at first it dragged a bit. I found Cassidy a bit hard to like, though as the story continued and we saw some of the issues troubling her and how she was dealing with them I felt a lot more sympathetic to her, and understood more about how and why she acted as she did.

Gage – Oh Gage, what a terrific man he was. So patient when most guys would have given Cassidy the heave ho, but he knew there was something between them that was worth waiting for. Even the most patient of men have a breaking point though, and he also has issues from his past affecting the present. At times Cassidy seemed very young, very immature whereas Gage always felt that bit older, with an outlook that considered first not just reacted as she did.


The first 40% I almost gave up at times, I just wasn’t really being pulled into the story, couldn’t somehow get to grips with it and then suddenly it became such that I just could not put it down. Waiting for my friend in Morrisons for our usual Monday breakfast I got caught out. Didn’t see her, didn’t hear her and when she tapped my shoulder and said hello I almost jumped out of my skin. I was away, with Gage, Cassidy and Luca…..that’s the best book isn’t it – those that transport you into the story, make you feel part of it. I was so angry with Cassidy at times, so cross with Luca and inwardly yelling “don’t be so stupid!! What about….” but of course if they’d listened to me it’d be a dull book ; –)

So after that slow start the story raced along for me, gave me all the drama and emotion I wanted and was a fantastic read, and became one I’d reread – I just love drama and angst…I’m looking forward to more in the series.



Stars:Four, if it wasn’t for that slow start this would be a five, certainly the drama part made it.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
