I think this just might be the best Jet Mykles that I've read so far. I like the fact that she's taken something that she's done well and is successful at and really tried to make it better (gfy rockers). The subject matter, emotions, and the events in this new book are certainly taken to a new level from the popular Heaven Sent books. The world is grittier, the emotions are deeper, and she's given the story a lot more room to grow at almost double the pages of those other books.

This is my favorite Jet Mykles book so far...I expected it to be good, and was not disappointed. This is a story of second chances...at love, life, passions, career, friendships, family...

This book was meatier, better...Jet Mykles can write a rocking rockstar story and her GFY themes are always great. This story had a all that...It's the story of Marlowe and Nick. Marlowe is a huge rockstar on top of the world and living a life full of excess...Nick is his guitar player, talented, young, beautif

This one is a hard one to rate. I generally love Jet Mykles' books. And this one, in some context, is no different.

I loved the characters even when I wanted to kill them. Their feelings for each other were genuine enough for me to believe it. I felt like the trials they went through to get where they ended up was both heartbreaking and entertaining but at the same time frustrating. I would definitely consider this an angsty book. No tissues needed but a clench of the heart here and there may hap

I'm a huge Jet Mykles fan and when I saw that she had a new book out, I snapped it up as soon as I could. Like her Heaven Sent series, this book deals with the world of musicians, singers and bands. Unlike her Heaven sent series this is quite a gritty look at the reality of fame alongside a Gay For You plot.

The book begins with out hero Nick at a high point in his life. He's a guitarist who is on tour with famous singer/songwriter Marlowe. Nick is exactly where he wants to be. He's working with

Edited 2012-05-03: I found out that I wrote what I think of this book (beside "I love this book...") in a comment so I have to fix it :)

I was so frustrated during first part of this book. It was too emotional. It's so different from Jet's other books that I read like "Just for you" or "A rose is a rose". They're bright and fun. This one is dark and I think more "matured". And I have to say I really love new Marlowe with all his fears and struggles...
-----------------------

I love this book :o)

I love Jet's style with the pop star/rocker theme. I loved the Heaven sent series and this was just as good.

An emotional roller coaster so be prepared and have the tissues handy.

4.5 stars. This was a great surprise. I was expecting something very light and instead found myself glued to the pages as the dramatic opening scenes between Nick and Marlowe unfolded. The author thanks someone at the beginning of the book for helping her make the band/music business part of the story realistic and I feel this part of the book is outstanding. She's done a great job of immersing us in the groupie and drug filled haze that Marlowe and his original band exist in. The sudden change ...more

For the GB Challenge recommended by Katie. 3.5 STARS

The flavor & the decadence of the music business is captured well in this novel. Little things would bother me here & there about this book like for instance, Nick's fluid sexuality. This is a true GFY book. In fact I think at some point Nick tells Marlowe he made him gay. In other GFY books I've read, there's been an effort made to show the character at least had a passing interest in men before. This one felt like Nick went from havi

This review was originally published on my blog Joyfully Jay.

Life is going great for guitarist Nick Gorman. His career has taken off and he is touring with the hugely popular musician Marlowe and his band. Marlowe is interested in Nick's songs and is planning to make them a part of the group's next album. Nick is living the rock star life, complete with wild parties and readily available sex, drugs, and alcohol.

Lead singer Marlowe is totally hot for Nick and senses that Nick shares the attractio

This is by far the best rocker book written by Jet Mykles. And she's written quite a few of them. While I think her Heaven Sent series is decent, they're underdeveloped and a little too superficial for me. This book however, had a lot of the depth that her other rocker books are lacking.

Nick Gorman is finally where he's dreamed of being - playing lead guitar for a popular rock and roll band and working with his idol and lead singer, Marlowe. Nick has the guitar skills that Marlowe has been looki

I must confess that I was sure that I would hate this book and at the beginning I almost dropped it, but I was very glad I read on.

For personal reasons - I don't care what one does with his life, but I have little sympathy for those who abuse drug or alcohol AND love it. At the beginning of the book Marlowe - and Nick too - use drugs with such a nonchalance that made me want to throw away my Kindle. Marlowe encourages Nick to take drugs in order to loosen him up a bit and seduce him more easily.

I’m used to the “pop culture” novels by Jet Mykles, actually the Heaven Sent series was probably the first yaoi style novels I read, and I like them. They are probably a must read for me, and that is the reason why I picked up Reverb as soon as it was out; and of course the cover by Laura Carboni was a nice bonus pushing me. True, Jet Mykles advised her fans that Reverb was a little more “dark” than the Heaven Sent series, this is a real sex, drugs and rock and roll themed novel, and the drugs I ...more

Like many others I’m a huge Jet Mykles fan and anything she writes is an auto-buy for me. Add in about musicians and a Gay For You theme and I’m pretty excited to read. Reverb doesn’t quite live up to the greatness of the Heaven Sent series but it’s an absorbing, gritty read about the reality of fame and drugs. The main couple is well crafted and the story itself flies by, almost too fast, with a lot of great secondary characters that catch your interest. The only real compliant I have is that o ...more

4.5

I was completely captivated by this book from the start. Nick and Marlowe's emotional evolution kept me turning the pages and hoping for a life together built on a new foundation of trust. The events that take place in their lives really help to build the character development and really made me connect with Nick and Marlowe and provide a little insight into each of their thought processes.

I appreciated reading about their challenges, hopes and growth as the story progressed. I never felt li

What a surprise this book was for me! I was hooked from the beginning. The drugs, the rocker lifestyle and all the troubles the characters faced came together to bring Marlowe and Nick together in an amazing story of love, loss, indulgence and hot sex!

The author did a wonderful job of detailing each character's struggles and their emotions, so that the reader was kept interested throughout. It was great to see how Marlowe overcame all his vices and Nicky came into his own.

A wonderful read, but

God I love Jet Mykle's rockers books. So freaking hot. This one seemed a little less intense that some of her other ones but I loved it all the same. We have Nick and Marlowe who are in a band together and right when they're starting what could be a fabulous relationship, Marlowe fucks up. Then we have a hella long time passing before they even talk again. I was hoping for a little more angst and tears but not in this one. Fun read!
Lee Brazil
I think I like this as much as Heaven Sent... maybe more. Marlowe is a great character, I liked that he wasn't perfect, and that when he fell in love, he was steadfast.
Lady*M
Very satisfying read, more realistic than author's previous books about music industry. Nick wasn't gay in three seconds flat, he didn't forgive Marlowe at once, there was no great coming out scene (willing or forced), the grittier parts of the business were not overlooked, etc. There were funny and cute moments as well as very emotional ones. The moment when Marlowe fell off the wagon was heartbreaking and brought tears to my eyes. Like some other readers, I was slightly bothered by Marlowe's c ...more

I was torn as to how I felt about this book. I went with a 3.5 rounded up to a 4. On the one hand, I thought it was a better written book all around than other rocker books by Mykles. On the other however I felt like I never really got to know the characters the way I wanted to or needed to to really feel like the story was believable. It was odd how there was both a really strong well rounded story, without any sort of strong well rounded character.

Nick is an amazing guitarist. He is the nephe

Before I even start, I must confess that I enjoyed Mykles’ first “band” series (Heaven) – although after the first two, they did seem to be repeating the same themes. That being said, I was excited and a bit weary before reading this one – and I had no reason to worry! This felt like an entirely different story and I was glad that Mykles was able to add new life into this setting. Be forewarned, the story isn’t as straightfor

Oh my God!! This was completely unputdownable! I mean, I cried when the accident happened and I was so angry at Marlowe but he was in so much pain. And then when he and Nick finally kinda got together I wanted to lock the pair of them in a room together and MAKE them talk to each other.

This book was painful but in a completely brilliant way. I love the fact that it wasn't easy for them, that they had to work to be together. I thought Kip was absolutely fantastic and I really hope we get a story

I love rocker books and I really enjoyed the storyline in this one. I loved seeing the struggle with drugs and alcohol for Marlowe and his realization of hitting rock bottom, figuring out what was most important, and even a subsequent slip up which is not unrealistic. Enjoyed the relationship between Nick and Marlowe although I would have loved more dialogue written between them as they were becoming friends again. The book kind of seemed to jump a few weeks/months where they were getting along ...more

Jet Mykles is all about the light and fluffy, low on angst and high on insta-lust , her books are pure escapism and sometimes that's all you want.
Meggie
The story was pretty good and emotionally deep. I liked the characters and how the plot developed from the start till the end. In general it was good written story full of sex, rock and drugs, but then that's what review said. All main characters were interesting and filled the story completely. Recommended emotional romantic story!
Lauren
I love rocker stories, and Jet writes them perfectly. I loved this one - I loved Marlowe and Nick so much that it made my heart hurt. This wasn't as easy going as I expected, it's got a fair bit of angst to it, but I really enjoyed it and loved the ending too. Wish we could see more of this couple!
Chris
Excellent m/m romance about the lead singer of a rock band who's really attracted to his straight lead guitarist and finally has the opportunity to seduce him... and then things go very, very wrong. Keep your hankies handy for this one!
Betryal
The beginning pelted out something fierce and serious, the middle of the story went slow, but was to be expected and towards the end it just did it for me. Hands down, no doubt Jet has done it for me again with one of her books.
