Fame and Fortune have destroyed many a rock star, but Trevor Wolff has a bigger problem when his best friend Mitchell Voss commits an act of monogamy with sexy artist Kerri Broadhurst.

ShapeShifter band dynamics will never be the same with this new woman on the scene, and the distractions of two girlfriends and a world tour aren’t enough to keep Trevor from feeling like hi

I was first introduced to Trevor Wolff a few years back. It didn't take long for me to swoon and dedicated myself to full Trevor Groupie status. He's so dreamy and so hot. I mean, hello! He's Trevor Wolff! So you may be asking yourself, who exactly Trevor Wolff is... Trevor is the brainchild of a friend of mine, Susan H Gottfried. He's the bassist for the hottest fictional rock band in history, Shapeshifter, and he's a bad bad bad boy. And well, that, makes my blood boil very nicely indeed.

The rarest and most valuable pearls are naturally formed when an irritant gets under the folds of a mollusk. Trevor’s Song opens with the band, ShapeShifter, approaching the heights of super stardom. The pearl that makes this particular band unique is lead singer/rhythm guitarist Mitchell Voss. The irritant responsible for focusing Mitchell’s talents, and forming the band, is bassist Trevor Wolff.

At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it all the way through Trevor’s Song. Trevor was not onl

I read this novel in three days and couldn't put it down. It's so original, about the members of a famous rock band, and gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their personal lives. If you've ever wished that just once, you could be a fly on the wall to observe what your favorite celebs are like in person, you'll appreciate this book, a blend of serious situations with light moments. I liked the complex characters and their interactions. By the end of the book, you'll consider the characters fri ...more

Susan Helen Gottfried has given the readers of Trevor's Song an all access backstage pass into the scenes of a touring rock star band and the complex life of a man on the edge.
Trevor Wolff is on the edge of super stardom, the edge of self destruction, the edge of life and death. As the man who brought together the band, Shapeshifters, it is a matter of pride that the popular heavy rock band is soaring to super stardom status. Trevor may not be a talented bassist but he is enjoying the benefits

Gottfried owns the art of delving into a character's head and heart. She especially shone at this with Trevor's voice. I relish this level of deep third writing, but I had two problems with it in this book. One, the majority of the script was inner monologue and narration, specifically in the first half. There'd be a little action, a little external dialogue, then pages of inward thinking would follow before the next action beat. The second issue was the lack of affection I had for Trevor, the m ...more

Trevor’s Song managed to take me completely by surprise. Trevor himself was the biggest surprise, being one of the most dysfunctional leads I’ve seen in a book in a long, long time. In the beginning, I didn’t even like him. He wasn’t what you might call a sympathetic character. But by the time I was halfway through the book, I was ready to shank anyone who so much as looked at him sideways. It was very interesting to watch his character grow and change (even if I sometimes wanted to smack some s ...more

This is the first novel of Ms. Gottfried’s that I’ve read. But it won’t be my last. Her writing style sucked me into the story from the start and kept me glued to the story.

This is the story of Trevor Wolfe, bass player for the heavy metal group Shape Shifter, who is a very narcissistic character. If there is a problem with this story, and this is a minor one, is his attitude for the first half of the story became frustrating and tiring. It seemed Trevor would go to any length to piss off those
D.J. Butler
Dilettante singer falls in love with an artist, putting tension between him and the visionary bassist. Isn't this how every rock band falls apart?

Susan Gottfried's stories about the rock band ShapeShifter are gritty real-world rock fiction, redolent -- almost literally -- with the seedy-decadent-glamorous-pathetic details of the lives and careers of rock and rollers on the cusp of making it. You can smell the bars these guys play in, hear the grunting of the sex-obsessed musicians and see the sh

Susan Helene Gottfried's ShapeShifter series is a real gem for music fans, industry insiders, and those who like a well-constructed, character-driven novel.

The first two books were a collection of short stories called "The Demo Tapes," both of which I read and enjoyed thoroughly. "Trevor's Song" brings us a more successful band, with ShapeShifter touring, recording and experiencing the fruits of their labors.

Bassist Trevor Wolff is the focus of Gottfried's full length novel, as he faces unantici

I have to admit, I didn't much like Trevor at the start of this book. He took great pleasure in annoying his friends and altered between a spoiled, narcissistic brat and a clingy, scared child. I did like his best friend, Mitchell, and had to wonder why he put up with Trevor's antics.

Despite my annoyance with Trevor, Gottfried's writing style made the story fun. Her familiarity with the music world brought vivid detail to the band's life. The dialogue and characters felt like I could have been

I won this book in a give away. I am not into heavy metal and the rock scene but I finally got around to reading it. I'm glad I did.
I connected with the characters right away. I could see them and hear them battering with each other.
Trevor and Mitchel are best friends then Rusty comes along and it's now Mitchel and Rusty. There were times in the book if I'd been Mitchel I would have slapped Trevor a little harder on the head. As the story progressed I really started liking Rusty and how she han

I picked this up for a few reasons. 1) I am familiar with the author from the bookobsessed forum. 2) It has a music backdrop. 3) It's on my Kindle which I am trying to use more. It took me awhile to get into it. Trevor is such an unlikeable prick of a main character! As I kept reading I started to see that this is part of his defense mechanism and eventually I had more positive feelings towards him. I also liked how some chapters were more focused on Kerri's character as well. It started slow, b ...more

This book is a treasure -- it rocks and rolls, on all possible levels. First, it's about a rock band, and no rock band could be more lovable than ShapeShifter. And Trevor Wolff, the bassist, is irresistible. In Trevor's Song, Susan Helene Gottfried weaves together poignancy, humor, and serious situations into a gem of a story that begs to be read not just once, but multiple times. Her characters come to life so strongly that they enter one's thoughts and dreams just like old friends. Don't miss ...more

I LOVE Trevor! Excellent read. I didn't want it to end.

Trevor Wolff is the vision behind ShapeShifter, the hottest new band. What he lacks in musical talent, he makes up for in attitude. He's a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy, and he plays life according to his own rules. When his best friend and talented band member, Mitchell, finds the girl of his dreams (Kerri, aka "Rusty"), Trevor is forced to reevaluate his own idea of what it means to be Trevor Wolff. His friendship with Mitchell must change, and he begins to wonder if he's ready for a real ...more

This book was a all-around fun read. Exactly what one would expect having a metal-rockstar narrating- without ever being boring or cliche. Trevor Wolff is a delightfully feisty character who doesn't allow himself to get dragged down no matter what happens- his best friend and bandmate doing the unthinkable and getting married, or his tits trying to kill him. And while Trevor himself could easily sell this story, it just isn't complete without the people around him who are all just as interesting ...more

Trevor Wolff can’t seem to catch a break. Yes, he’s a hot rock star from the band, ShapeShifter. And, he’s got women waiting in line to be with him. But the inner workings of Trevor are much more complex. His life up until then had been emotionally and physically turbulent. And just when things seem to finally be going his way, his whole rock star life is threatened. Not only is he devastated by the addition of an unwanted new member—his best friend’s girlfriend—he’s also hiding an illness that ...more

A window on the rock world

Susan Helene Gottfried has given us a slice of rock n roll craziness in this tale about rock musicians kicking butt. Book Two continues the saga from very readable Book One. Now I'm looking forward to starting Book Three!

This book could have been a bit tighter and I feel like Trevor needed a better connection to someone beside Rusty. Was having issues seeing him as a 3D character.

I made myself finish this book, thinking I would become more engrossed into it. I can't recommend this one. It was a dud for me.
