Why I Read It
I love music and reading about bands in books combines my two favorite things.
What I Rated It
What It’s About
Brooklynn Hawk is an enigma. Highly sought after for her incredible voice, her talent shines bright in the studio. But a dark past and a secret she holds close to her heart keep her from permanently stepping into the limelight.
Until her favorite band offers her the chance to chase her dreams.
As the lead singer for rock sensation, Stone Butterfly, Levi Matthews is wary of bringing in new talent. But, he has heard just how amazing Brooklynn is and when the need for another singer arises, he’s confident that she is the perfect addition.
However, he doesn’t count on laying his heart at her feet.
But the world of music can be as dangerous as it is thrilling. Joining Stone Butterfly on tour was hard enough for Brooklyn, but when she finally succumbs to Levi’s charms, the rock ‘n’ roll life turns deadly.
Will Levi and Brooklynn keep their voices and their hearts entwined? Or will the music prove too hard to survive?
**Can be read as a standalone**
****5 ROCK stars****
I love music and I love when I get to see it be a big part of books. It is like a two-for-one sale for me. What I have struggled to find with heavily involved musicians in books is accuracy, but I am so happy to say that I have found that in Another Postcard. Christensen’s knowledge/research have gone above and beyond for this book. Although this is just one of the MANY reasons why I loved the book, it had to be the first mentioned because not once did I roll my eyes or cringe from wrong terminology/slang.
There is nothing more passionate then figuring out a riff, nailing a solo, or coming together as one with music. The energy these characters gave off was palpable through my screen. I felt their excitement, passion, and comradery as if I was right there with them. It is the same energy you get when listening to your favorite “pump up song.” It is like seeing your favorite band live for the first time. Nothing compares.
Levi. Well, lead singers have never been my thing but this guy is sweet, smooth, and sexy on and off the stage. To me, he is the heart and soul of the band though everyone has their place. His persistence with Brooklynn made me smile and giggle often in the beginning. His passion and love for her after “catching” her is what did me in.
Brooklynn is one of those characters that you hope you could rise to be if put in her family situation. The woman is tough as nails and an inspiration. Her resilience towards Levi in the beginning is nothing short of honorary. It is always so beautiful and satisfying to see someone like her break down the walls and let someone in because she is someone who needs it the most.
This book will take you on one rockin’ adventure with tempo changes that will lead you to an amazing build up and climax. This is a book you don’t want to miss out on!
