I'm Black. And a chick. And a metalhead. Who's kind of always the only black chick in da house while at a metal concert. So after reading the blurb for Metal Love Song, I couldn't not purchase it. And was not disappointed. I loved how Shiree made Freedom one hell of a power chick. And the drama between her and her men: wow! This book just kept me going, it incorporated so many of the things I dig in real life: the music and what it stands for - 'Metal music allows her to shoot the middle finger ...more

Thanks to author Shiree McCarver for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for a typically honest The Fountain Pen Diva review.

*drum roll please*

If you don't know it by now I am a sworn, avowed and affirmed metalhead. My musical tastes do run the gamut, but it is metal which continues to hold my allegiance. And there are a lot of us metalheads of colour out there, and not just fans. There are bands like Sevendust, King's X, Straight Line Stitch, Tetrarch, Devil You Know, Skinflint, Diar
I'm going to go with a 3.5... not sure what the hell happened around the 85% mark but it just lost me. I was like deep into the book and then it was like... I missed the train lol.

One thing that bugged the hell out me of... up until the 97% mark Craven was treated like a f**king option instead of a priority. Like he wasn't good enough... they both treated him this way and that really pissed me off. This dude is what the hell is keeping all this shit glued and he gets curved like a side chick. I

Ill have to say this was very different from what I'm used to reading but it was good the only complaint I have is some of the dynamics were to long and then some were to short where to me it could have been longer it was too short overall a decent read. Craven I loved Chay for me was too needy!

This novel had so much potential, but it lost me around page 400 (mind you it's much longer reading it off of my laptop, so it was around 600 pg.). I'll write more soon I guess...I'm just disappointed.

This storyline was very different from other books I have read but I was very interested in what happened all up until the end. I didn't notice the length in pages because I was too interested in what was going to happen next.(I love long interesting books) I have to say I liked Craven very much and was rooting for him the whole time. ...more

I have been a follower of Ms. McCarver since the release of her first book. This book had so much potential that was never quite developed. Freedom Rose and Chay Kim grew up together through all the changes life brings, death of a parent, puberty, crushes and stardom. Freedom had a love of music, especially Heavy Metal, a genre overlooked by many African Americans. Chay discovered himself through Heavy Metal.

There was so much to this story, that at times it felt a little heavy and slow. Ms. McC

I couldn't even finish this. The writing is terrible, and needs a serious SERIOUS overhaul. The tenses blur and the sentences don't make a lot of sense at first. This reads like something an ambitious high schooler would write...and get a D on for the poor grammar and usage. And to think, I was definitely looking forward to reading about a black rock chick. Sigh. ...more

I wasn't expecting everything that happened in this book. It was very well written, this was the first time for me, reading this author, it definitely won't be the last.

I have read this book about six or more times so right there you know it's a winner. The scene with Free, Chay, and Craven are 🔥 as hell do be warn. This story tackles sexual awaken, bisexuality, bipolar, love, and forgiveness how can this not be a most read. The author did a great job of having this topic without losing the story. If you haven't read this book give it a try.
