Cooper Ryan is living the dream. Between the parties with rock royalty, booze, groupies and performing to crowds of thousands with his band Taint, life seems pretty sweet. There’s just one thing missing: the feisty little red-head that took his baby and ran off with his heart. Throwing himself into music is the only thing keeping him sane.

I'm losing my mind. I'm sinking, drowning, and on fire all at once. I'm split down the middle, torn in half by two different men, two different bodies pushing and pulling me in all directions, breaking me down and then lifting me up again, shoving me into the fire and soothing my scorching flesh with their kisses that act as a balm.

I hope you're sitting down as you're readingclass="gr-hostedUserImg">

Although I didn’t finish the author’s prior series I do remember and liked the hot rock star Cooper Ryan. This story had a promising start and I liked Ali Jones background, her cat and her bitchy personality. Cooper is crazy attracted to her and gets her to work with his band. He’s nursing a broken heart after the love of his life took hi

This was one hot book and I am definitely a new fan to this Aussie author. Revelry is the first in a new series following the rock band Taint.

Cooper Ryan was first introduced in Enjoy Your Stay when his girlfriend and baby mamma Holly, left him heartbroken. Don't worry though, this is a complete standalone so it is not necessary to have read it prior.

Feeling rejected and bitter, he is now a fa

You know this thing we all hate when it comes to books, the insta-love. Well that happened to me with this book. I knew when I first saw the cover and after I read the blurb that I was going to love Revelry. I had this feeling the book would be for me.


At the time, I never read a book by Carmen Jenner. But a few months ago I read Kick and to be honest I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted.

3.5-75 stars!!

** Before any of you read or go into this, do know that there is a love triangle and that there is MFM action in it. I know for some of you-- it’s a hard limit(s) of yours, and normally for me as well, but strangely I loved this one!! It didn’t unnerve me or deter me at all.**


Cooper Ryan. Hmm, doesn't that name ring a bell?

Remember Holly’s ex and Pepper’s rocker daddy from The Sugartown Series? Yep, this is him alright.

And yet, ANOTHER FEISTYstars!!

Revelry left me a bit underwhelmed. There was just too much sex and too little story here.

Working at Harbour Records was supposed to be Ali's first step in turning her life around. She's down on her luck, living out of her car, and now has to deal with a rock star used to getting everything that he wants. And what Cooper wants, is Ali. After she literally falls at his feet when she meets him, Ali is giving an ultimatum. Either tour with Taint or be unemployed once again.

The book started off good, and I was really interested in finding out more about Cooper. But then nothing happened! He

First things first, I absolutely adore and love Carmen Jenner. There is no ifs, and, buts about it, I will one-click and read anything Carmen writes. If you are familiar with her books, then you know that she doesn't do the conventional lovey-dovey romance stories. Instead she gives you real, flawed, raw and vulnerable characters whose actions and emotions are the main aspect of the story-line. With her wicked and brilliant story-telling, Carmen dousereview
Revelry was like watching a Jim Carey movie. You stupid it's funny!

Ali's job was to be an assistant for the band. They pushed her to go on tour with them. While on tour the only thing she assisted was to screw two members of the band. lol Not one time after they went on tour did she do anything to get paid...job wise.

This book is funny as hell! I laughed so hard at the stupidness I had tears streaming.

It also had some pretty smoking hot sex. M/F/M and F/M.
Levi and his 12 inches! Whew!

I hated the ending!
Did she fall in love with them both or did she break one of their hearts?
You will have to tackle this one to find out!
Will I be reading more of this series? I'm not sure. lol

This book was so hard for me to rate. SO HARD. To me, it had everything that qualifies as a five star book. There was humor, love, heartbreak and some really (and I mean REALLY) amazing sex. Seriously ladies, just buy a bulk-size container of batteries, because Carmen Jenner has managed to created the hottest and most beautiful literature porn in existence. In existence!! That is no small feat.

I loved this book, I really did. If only I could give this book more than 5 stars! ~ Kelly, 5 stars

Cooper Fucking Ryan. Sexy. Bossy. Emotionally unavailable. He's still a little shaken from losing his heart and his child to another man.  He's distracting himself with his career and a world tour until another feisty redhead falls in his lap.

Ali Jones has lost everything over the past year. She has no family, no love and is barely holding down the job she hopes will lead to the career she desperately wants.  Playing coffee girl to Cooper's band, is not on her to do list. But when it's thatlap.

The h goes to being all pristy and hard minded
To threesomes with 2 of the band mates and not in the "I'm kinda drunk way, lets experiment"... No she has the full experience with 2 guys several times, when she obviously has feelings for one of them.

Also she speaks of herself as a "whore" a lot... Slut shaming is just nasty....

Coop’s book. Okay so I do admit that Mr. Ryan had to win me over a bit, I was not a fan of his from his Sugartown days ( #TeamJackson all the way! ), but I can say without a doubt that I was easily won over. Cooper Ryan was downright delicious!

Cooper Ryan’s life was in a downward spiral. After being left by Holly (with his child) for another man, he was slowly drowning in the booze and the fame. But all that was about to change when one daring outburst tosses another red head into his path. Ali.

Oh man where do I even try to begin to explain this book because oh my lawd it was pure hotness on a freaking stick! Carmen Jenner has this uncanny ability to make her characters likable and you can’t help but to fall in love with them. Its official I’m a Taint Groupie and proud of it. I love all those boys le sigh.

Before I begin, two words: Love Triangle. And I've read love triangle stories before but this one will tug at you

This was torture. So, this is about a group of assholes/drug addicts/man whores/rock stars. And, damn, I can't decide which one of them I hated the most. Or maybe it was the heroine and her over-the-top sarcastic personality ? Sassy and sarcastic characters are my absolute favorite, but the way she was acting was so unnatural it made me wanna punch her.

I make it a point not to make assumptions about books before diving into them, I tried and failed hopelessly with Revelry however, from reading and re reading the Sugartown series more times than I can count over the last two years I'd built up an image of Cooper in my head, when Ms Jenner started alluding to his novel over a year ago and I read the blurb I was instantly smitten. I never disliked Cooper, he was never a bad guy as such, in another place and another time he could of been perfect w ...more

Even though the sex was off page, I'm still pleased as fuck it was the h that fucked another when shit went south and not the tried and true H/rockstar and OW/groupie scenario...I mean talk about a 180* plot device ;)

But then it tumbles into creepy-hot m/f/m scenes that turn the ménage into an emotional and sexual triangle, w

Fucking phenomenal! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review, and that's my honest opinion. This was my very first book to read by Carmen Jenner and I can't believe I've deprived myself of her writing skills all this time.
I don't know the correct literary/writing terminology to use, but just know her writing style is unique. You feel like you're experiencing everything the characters are. The language is totally informal, quirky and funny as hell. Since I don't know how to descri

Ugh I feel like such a whore having just finished Revelry. Like my poor vagina is a bit jealous right now for all the action that Ali's over eager beaver got. But what makes it even worse is the fact that I am no longer a Sugartown groupie on a mission to build my own little colony of incest featuring Elijah, Jackson, and Sammie. Oh no!! Carmen had to go and create these freaking rock stars that make my lady bits tingly. There is only one option now and that option is me and all the men Carmen has created, yes Kick too, must be sent away to l ...more
