'Irresistible Refrain'

Title-Irresistible Refrain

Series- Tempest Series # 1

By-Michelle Mankin

 Publication Date-October 3th, 2013

 Genre-New Adult



Two years ago everything changed for the remaining members of the
Seattle rock band Tempest.

 Two years is a long time.

 Too long to keep on remembering.

 Not nearly long enough to forget.

In trouble with nowhere else to go songstress Lace Lowell seeks
refuge with the band during their stop in New York City. It's a risky move for
her because they are both there, two impossibly good looking men whose lives are
inseparably entwined with hers. One who bruised her heart and one who smashed it into pieces.

Warren “War” Jinkins, the mercurial lead singer of Tempest, has
always had a thing for Lace. But then again so does his best friend and band mate.

Bryan “Bullet” Jackson, the sinfully handsome tat-sleeved lead
guitarist, has a bad boy reputation befitting his nickname. For the past two
years Bullet’s had a rule with the groupies: one time, never twice, leave ‘em
satisfied, but always leave ‘em.

Two guys, one woman, and a host of dark secrets all together within
the tight confines of a tour bus as the group travels cross country.

Can the past be forgotten and buried?

Will friendships prevail?

Or will the three of them succumb to seductive impulses too addictive to resist?
** Irresistible Refrain is a gritty rock and roll tale intended for mature readers seventeen and up.
Contains sexual situations, strong language, and drug use. **


I seriously contemplated telling her right then and there that she
was the only woman that had ever been important to me when I heard the door
slide open behind us.

“Guys it’s four fucking a.m.” Voice gruff with disapproval, War’s
appearance brought our intimate predawn reunion to an end. Looking wan and
strung out, the lead singer of Tempest shuffled into view wearing a pair of red
boxers and scratched his bare chest. “Come on back to bed, babe.” He held out
his hand to her while shooting me an irritated glance.

She patted my knee and I took the cue to scoot out of the booth
ahead of her so she could exit.

War threw a proprietary arm around her shoulders as soon as her
bare feet hit the floor. “Night, Loser.”

“Night, Asshole.”

War gave me the finger before he closed the door.

I stared at it for a long time. Nothing had fucking changed. Twenty
thousand people screaming my name during my guitar solo at the Garden, plus two
twins, but none of that mattered to me. Not when my best friend had the woman
I’d always wanted.
About the Author-
Michelle Mankin is a young/new adult romance writer as well as a
self-proclaimed giant…inside her own mind.

For many years, she toiled in the insurance industry as an
 underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn’t kill her, and the hours of looking at
 facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.

Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and the latest novel, Love Resolution are rock ‘n
roll romances. The first is based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, the second on
Much Ado About
Nothing, and the third on The Tempest.

The first three books in the Black Cat Records series combine the plot underpinnings of the famous playwright
with the drama, excitement, and the indisputable sexiness of the rock ‘n roll industry.

When she is not putting her daydreams down on paper, you can find
Michelle traveling the world with her family. Sometimes for real and sometimes
just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.

Wow let me just start by saying that this is the first book that I get to read from this author and I love it. When I participated on the cover reveal of this book, I was so intrigue with the blurb and the cover that I said I really want to read this story, and now I got the chance to read it.

This book made me feel a lot of things, my emotion where like a roller-coaster, one minute I was happy the next I was mad that I just wanted to through my laptop across the room, but I love every single minute of it I am gone keep this short because I don’t want to give anything away.

I love the characters and how the story was set up, I really like how you could get to read from both point of view, love how the band support each other and how they are there for each other.
I love Bryan "Bullet" Jackson he is the lead guitarist for the ban Tempest, he is handsome with tat-sleeved has that bad boy reputation and he has a one rule with the groupies, one time, never twice, and leave them satisfied but always leave them.

He’s always being in love with Lace and is always trying to be away from her after two years of not seen her. Lace show up on the tour bus seeking refuge after she left her ex-boyfriend. The thing is that Lace also had always being in love with Bryan.

But being back on the bus she end up getting back together with Warren "War" Jinkins, his the lead singer of the ban tempest and is also in love with Lace, and is also Bryan Best friends.

this book is full of secrets and you get to see what each one of them is going through and how they are trying to manage their relationship as also their friend ship, some time I got really mad at Lace that all I could say his right in front of see all the good he could give you, I really enjoy this book and I really love it and can’t wait into you get to read this awesome story.

I want to thank author Michelle Mankin for introducing me to this amazing books and giving me the chance to read it about this awesome characters.
