Thalia is twenty-one and has just finished her sophomore year of college, and is trying to avoid going home to her stifling parents who have a curfew of nine every night, and have a bad habit of treating her like she's still ten years old. Her new boyfriend, Liam, invites her to spend the summer with him and his family, so as she’s been unable to find a local job to keep h ...more

Let me start this rant!!!

Sooo the name of the book intrigued me. Sexy rocker dude blah blah, that's the shit we girls like right???

Ohhhh so wrong.. Especially when the book starts off with Thalia who is sort of with Liam but isn't really with Liam because he wants to go slow but they hang out and he kisses her once but still invites her home for the summer?

Huh? Yeah that's what I was thinking. Thalia is supposedly soooo good looking like she was the next best thing after sliced bread yet Liam d

WTF? Based on the reviews, did I just read the same book as everyone else?

Tattoos, piercings, muscles all rolled into one hot rocker. Sounds promising, doesn’t it? Yeah, I thought so too.

**Warning: There may be spoilers ahead, however I doubt it since the whole storyline was pretty much mentioned in the ‘blurb’.

I was provided with an advanced electronic copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. This review will be also posted on Smokin’ Hot Book Blog on 10th August as a part of Sizzle Blog Tour.

First of all, I have to say that Sizzle’s cover is the biggest misunderstanding ever. It really does not go well with the story. It kind of looks like cover for cheap erotica novel aka porn without the plot and Sizzle is nothing like that. Yes, there is lot of steamy stuff going on, but

This is a great series opener, introducing a whole bunch of new characters which we are sure to enjoy during the series. This time it’s the turn of Jack (Phoenix) and Thalia who, rather unfortunately, goes to stay at Jack’s family’s house as the ‘girlfriend’ of his younger brother Liam. Their attraction to one another is incendiary and instant and they are going to find it extremely difficult to keep their hands off one anotherl To add to the confusion, Jack is engaged to be married to Mia and t ...more

As she came dashing towards me, I whistled. She noticed Liam and Mia who still hadn’t come up for air, then launched herself at me. She wrapped her arms around my neck while my arms went to her hips, pulling her in close between my thighs.

“I don’t understand.” The anger drained out of me as I moved closer to him.
“I know you don’t, but you need to stay away from me, because I’m not sure I have the strength to stay away from you. There’s something about you…”

My God!!! This book was so ridiculous! It's bad! Really bad! I don't even know where to start... Well, honestly, it started off pretty good. There's a bit of anticipation. Jack had this cool vibe and swagger going on. And Thalia was likeable. But after the first few chapters, everything went downhill. Their connection was not believable. It felt forced. No chemistry at all!

Jack always talked about his cock! His twitching dick! His hard cock! His throbbing cock! His pierced cock! My God! There w

Enjoy the cover ladies, as the rest of the book isn't that great. I really, really wanted to like this book, but couldn't get past the gratuitous use of the C-word, (throw a P-word in there every so often to change it up) and the fact that the guy was constantly using his fist instead of his hand. If you decide to read this you will know what I am talking about, as I'm trying to be clean.

Between the cover and the blurb (gal falls for BF's brother who is engaged), I was excited for this one. The beginning had me interested but it didn't take long for this one to go downhill. The writing was atrocious. The sex scenes were not hot. (view spoiler). Another thing that bugged me was when something would happen and then one of the characters would go off and tell their friends, through d ...more

Well, I'm not sure what happened to my original review of this book (probably for the best...), but I remember not being a fan of this story. I found that the characters were one dimensional and the story not well developed. It was all very juvenile. I remember doing a lot of this:

This is one of the rare books that is going to get a half star from me. My actual rating is 3.5.

I'll admit that prior to starting this book, I felt a book funk coming on. I hate that feeling, nothing was appealing to me. But once I read the description of this book, it started screaming at me. I started it immediately. What's not to love? A bad boy who's got tattoos and piercings. Throw in the fact that he's a musician (of the unfamous variety [image error]) and I'm hooked.

OK...I had so many mixed feelings while reading this, that I felt like I needed to be on meds for bi-polar disorder! I loved, hated, despised, loathed, admired, and just plain out wanted to throat punch some of the characters all at once!! Sizzle has a HAWT cover, it is a rock star romance... so I thought that it would be purrrrfect for me! However, one of the main characters almost ruined this book for me.

I loved Thalia. She is a good natured, sweet, like-able, friendly, girl next door.
i sooo wanted to love this book and it started out ok too but it went from bad to worse in a matter of pages and there were so many inconsistencies...initially the parents were acting suspiciously and it didn't go anywhere...

This is the first installment of the Bad Boy Rockers series. I’ve never read a book by Lexi Buchanan before, and this does not disappoint. The sex was hot, the story was entertaining, and the hero, well just look at that cover and tell me what you think!! HA!HA! He was absolutely SIZZLING!! The story is narrated back and forth between the two main characters...starting with Thalia’s POV. Then we’re introduced to Jack, a.k.a “Phoenix”. He’s magnificent! And, Thalia’s quite the “character” as well ...more
Holy sh*t! Look at that DELICIOUS cover! So yummy!

"Sizzle" was an okay yet enjoyable read where I devoured it in one sitting. I really liked how evenly paced it was and how easy it was to digest.

The main thing, if anything, that bothered me was the characters. Gah!! If there's two things I often hate reading in books it's when there's characters like these:

1) Meddlesome parents who force their own agenda on their children.
2) A love at first sight connection (since it's so cliche!) between th

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book & by Christ am I thankful.

This book was hot & steamy all the way through. It was hard reading Thalia & Jack's relationship grow but on hold at the same time, if you read it you will understand! They clearly loved each other but couldn't do anything about it at first.

Looking forward to Callie & Reece's book. :D

Ok so I admit I picked this book up purely based on that HOT cover! - Well no, that's a lie. The description sparked my curiosity also.

Obviously not that many people have reviewed this book so I didn't bother scanning through them to see what the reactions were. Now that I have however, it would seem I'm one of the few who DIDN'T like this book.

Thalia has been going out with Liam for six months. She's curious as to why he's not attempted to even kiss her other than a peck on the cheek. Then he asks her to go home with him for the summer vacation when college finishes.

Thalia is keen to do so as her parents are very controlling and treat her like a small child even though she's in her twenties. Before they arrive at Liam's family home he asks her would she mind pretending to be his girlfriend! Once they arrive she is immediately

When I first read the synopsis for this book I could not wait to own it. I lost track of it because it had not been released at that point recently I found it again and wow am I glad I bought it. The characters in this book make you want to slap them at times, hug them on others, and cheer for HEA's. Jack and Mia are in an arranged marriage for almost the last 12 months. Liam and Thalia met in college tried dating but neither of them felt a spark of anything other than friendship but Liam doesn' ...more

This is a hard one for me to rate. The premise of this was great - boy brings girl home for the summer, girl falls in love with boy's brother who is engaged to be married. The execution was the problem. Jack and Thalia would go from tears to having sex in a matter of seconds. There was soooo much back and forth it was like watching a tennis match - "I love you but I can't ever be with you again." And then they'd start the whole cycle or over again.

It took me three attempts at starting this book before I just went for it. I regret that I did. The story wasn't even soap opera quality, the characters were bland and the dialog was just terrible. I don't like to give bad reviews but this book just wasn't up to par. I had hoped for at least a slightly better story than I got. I can say my least favorite in the book was Thalia and every time she said the name "Phoenix" I wanted to puke. Very disappointing book. I have no desire to read any more ...more

This book was good in the starting. But everything was so fast and cofusing! tey fell in love with just two days! and lots of unnecessary dramas going on with them! I just glanced through the last 20 pages!! The book cover and the snyposis looked good. It was hot but not that sizzling hot for me!
