”You’re my anchor. I just want to stop moving.”

I actually really liked Tony and Constance’s story and wish more time was spent expanding with their time together, Tony’s past (what exactly happened? I still don't know) and that ending. The delivery although never boring was just too darn rushed.


Scenes where the author could have stayed and expand she just never did. The whole conclusion was like an outline or cliff notes to what the story deserved. There were also some confusi
Keeping this review short and easy, kind of like the book.

Genre: New Adult Rocker Romance.
Cover: 7/10
Writing: 5/10
Heroine: 6/10
Hero: 6/10
Hotness: 4/10
Romance: 6/10
Extra book Details: Dual POV. 3rd in the series, can be read as a stand-alone, each book follows a different band member.

Like I said, it was an easy read. Around 200 kindle pages, it was even more of a quick read because it wasn't taxing in any way.

I didn't really get annoyed or peeved off for any of it. I had a few feels, a 'ha' here

Definitely a fun, fast read! Picked this up late last night around 9PM-ish and finished by 4AM with no breaks between.

From what the synopsis says, we follow Constance and Tony through their up-and-down relationship spread out over four years' time.

It starts with Constance trying to figure out where the heck she is, and why she can't move. At fifteen, she's drugged at a party, unable to control her body from anything… or anyone. When a familiar face comes into sight, she thinks there's a chance

Convincing Constance is book #3 in The Blowhole Boys Series, fangirl moment now... I love the Blowhole Boys series and I have been so looking forward to reading this third book.

And I think it official and actually quite easy to say that Tiny is now my favourite Blow Hole Boy!!!

I really can’t say enough how much I love Tiny, he’s absolutely adorable a real gentle giant!!!

This is one of my favorite series and I bought it as soon as it went live. I read this book within hours and I wasn't disappointed!
Constance grew up in the rock and roll world so she has seen first hand what that world can do to people. She never wanted to be a part of it. But when she falls on hard times and takes a job with Blow Hole while Zeke recovers with a broken hand she's thrown right back into it.
Constance is a loud mouth, hard b@#$h so she fits right in with the guys.
Finn treats her
Convincing Constance is the story of Blow Hole's bass player, Tiny (Tony), and Constance, daughter of a guitar legend and a killer guitarist herself.

Tiny has become addicted to painkillers ever since his car accident that left his abdomen badly scarred. Combine that with drinking heavily and Tiny has plenty of nights that he doesn't remember.

Constance is living dirt poor since she refuses to live with her addict mother who made sure there was nothing left of any inheritance from her rock star fa

I knew I was going to like this story just because I had never read anything by Tabatha Vargo I didn't love. Plus it was the Blow Hole Boys and they just kick a$$!

Tiny has always been the mystery of the group. Never knew much about him, but always had the gentle giant thing going for him in my mind. He's the quiet one and you know what they say about the quiet ones.... Tiny lived up to his story perfectly! I couldn't help but feel his pain and understand why he does what he does. Scars inside an

This author never fails to pull me into the story within the first chapter!! I started this one yesterday and normally it takes me about a week to read a book these days, this one took me less than a full day! I couldn't put it down. I really loved the character of Constance as a strong woman who didn't take crap from anyone, yet she still has a vulnerable side that can break her if you happen upon it. Tony is a vulnerable male scared of getting close to this chick but unable to stay away from h ...more

It's no surprise that Darynda Jones captures the attention and heart of her readers right from the first chapter. Her love stories will become legends with characters that are real, flawed yet strong. Their issues are believable and relatable making it easy for the reader to be immersed into the love story.
Tony and Constance are imprinted on our hearts, you ache for them, their pasts, and their present with hope that they can find a way back to each other.

Tabitha did it again with the AMAZING story of Constance and Tony. I ABSOLUTELY FRICKIN LOVED their story!!! Their stories individually broke my heart, but to see how they both bounced back and found love through music was inspiring. Tony and Constance are so appealing because they easily remind you of your own hard ass friends who take no shit from anyone, but has a heart of gold at the same time. The tragedies that they both had to face fell in comparison to the huge po

Another addition in the blow hole series. This is Tiny's story. Constance is standing in for Zeke when he hurts his hand. Constance and Tiny help each other deal with their past hurts but is love enough when addiction stands in the way. I find that each of these stories is so gripping and angst filled. The chemistry between the couple arcs constantly throughout. Unfortunately like the others, this book comes to resolution so quickly after so much has happened. For me it is to hard to simply get ...more

I really enjoy this series! The characters have so much depth you feel like you know them. The storylines are all completely different and interesting. I like that the author doesn't have the couples breaking up then immediately getting back together. The amount of time before they see each other again makes it seem more believable. I REALLY like how strong the female characters are. They're not the type that is treated badly by a man but can't help from immediately forgiving him. (I hate those ...more

Another great Blow Hole Boys book. I've been wanting to read about Tiny since the first book, and I was not disappointed. Both Constance and Tony, "Tiny", have some deep issues. I really liked how after 4 years apart, they still have feelings for each other, but Constance knew Tony needed help, he just had to see it for his self and get it. I can't wait to read Chet's book next. I love this series.
Not as good as the first two books in the series...just a little too short. But, I still loved it anyway! Out of the three guys, Zeke is still my favorite. But, I'll tell you, the three woman were just so different, that you've got to love them all! Looking forward to Chet's story when it gets released hopefully this summer...

Full review to be written soon...

This series is one of my favorite series hands down. Tabatha Vargo has become my go to author. I love everything she writes and devour it as soon as I can get my hands on it. Tiny and Constance love story was beautiful and probably my favorite couple so far from this series. A must read!

Admittedly I have only read the first 3 books in this series so far. I wish this author didn't feel the need to make all of the lead female characters as victims. First Patience was molested for 10 years, Faith was beat by her father pretty much every day and now you have Constance who was drugged and date raped by her fathers band mate. Does this author not believe in strong healthy female leads? Each one of these ladies was weak and kept their secrets and lived their lives in denial about what ...more

Convincing Constance is the third full length novel in the Blow Hole Boys series by Tabatha Vargo. Love..Love...Love this series and this book made the perfect addition to the series. The storyline was fabulous and was very well thought out. The characters were spot on with depth, emotion and lots of smokin hot chemistry. Can't wait to read the next book to see if Chet can find his perfect match!!!
Tiny and Constance's story is not as strong as the rest of the band's but it sure seems like all of these characters have some shitty lives before they hook up. A bit depressing if you ask me. But again, I did enjoy these characters and liked their story.

Constance and Tony

Ive been waiting for Tony's story from the first book of this series and it didn't disappoint. Even though these book have a simliar back ground story, i still enjoyed Tony's and Contance's story. I was glad that Jack got what was coming to him in the end. The epilogue was interesting with Chet., now i can read his story and hopefully get an update on the other characters as well.

This is the 4th book in the Blow Hole series and involves a third character. It can be read as a standalone.

Tony “Tiny” is in a never-ending cycle of pills, alcohol and pain. He was in a terrible car accident several years ago and had to learn to walk again. Since then he has endured never-ending pain that seeps through his bones during his waking hours and plagues his nightmares. The pills take away the pain and the excessive alcohol allows him to sleep…if you can call passing out sleeping. No

Tony, aka Tiny, hasn't been touched by a woman since before his accident, an accident which left him with major scars. He doesn't realize that a woman is going to be gentle & loving with him about his scars - the real issue is the pain pill addiction he's developed after the accident, often mixing pain pills with alcohol & then blacking out. But new guitar player Constance, she gets a rise out of him like no other woman, the way she plays, her big "assets" & curvy hips, her rocker to ...more

I needed no convincing that Tabatha Vargo has another hit here. The 3rd story in the Blow Hole Boys series is as strong the first two. This is Tiny/Tony's book. He's struggling with gripping pain, mental and physical, from the almost life-ending injuries he suffered in a car accident from early in Finn's book. His story starts back a little bit from where Finn's ended. His emotional and physical scars have kept him from letting women see him for the good guy he is. He's grossly dependent on drug ...more
