Stop merely surviving and live...
This is my second book in this series, and while it can be read as a standalone it felt like a continuation. The characters that I met in book one were also in book two in addition to new characters that were introduced. I liked that this one was a little sexier, more flirting and PDA between the characters. What I missed between Marcus & Avery during their story was included in this one. They are no longer holding back their feelings for each other or hiding

Talk about a HOT-ASS read!! Oh my WOW!!!

After Love Evolution, I was just itching to see what sort of story would come out of Love Revolution. I was graciously given an opportunity to review this before its release, and MAN, am I glad I had that chance. Granted, that means I have to wait even LONGER for Book 3, but still!!!

So, in this installment we're reacquainted with some old friends from Love Evolution and introduced to some steamy new characters. Fiesty Country Rocker Sarah Daniels...her bab

Wow I read Love evolution and loved it but I loved this one so much more. I'm a sucker when it comes to bad boy rockers and I loved JR in Love evolution but this time it was his story and what a ride with Sam he went on . I also loved Chris and Sara . I loved that we got to know what Avery and Marques were up to. I can't wait to read the next one cus it left me saying WTF?

Love Revolution had a bit too much drama for my taste, even if I enjoyed the characters and the overall story just fine.

Michelle you already know I love this book...But for you people who are still tihnking about reading it, stop thinking and get down to reading..

It first I didn't think that a second book would be as good as the first one..But now I can honestly say that I can't pick witch one is best..

Two love stories, with a hevy dose of drama and adventure and little glimpses from Avery and Marcus kept me up until four in the morning finishing this book..

I loved both couples but I have to say that JR and Sam w

3.5 stars
After reading Love Evolution, I was so excited to get my hands on this one. I really enjoyed it but not as much as the first one which was a bit quirky and therefore endearing to me. Love Revolution was a little more intense. Still a good story. I will definitely be checking out more from Michelle Mankin.
Brandee (un)Conventional Bookworms
Love Revolution was a heckava lot more intense due to its suspense element. Don't get me wrong - with a title like Love Revolution, it has plenty of romance. Inspired by Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, Mankin does a fine job infusing the story with the personality and wit of Shakespeare. The romance revolves around two sisters from Texas - one jaded and one naive - and two rock stars, naturally. I quite enjoyed the snarky banter between Sara and Chris. Their romance bloomed around barbs be ...more

I really liked the story. Because of the first chapters - that felt like some warm-up practice before the big game - I strongly and impatiently hoped that something was going to happen -- and it did! In a such BIG way that it made me think that I have to prepare myself for an unexpected sad ending.
In Love Evolution we had one main focus - the relationship between Avery&Marcus; Love Revolution came up with a double prize story - two sisters and two rockers - so different but at the same time

*I received an ARC to read and give an objective and honest opinion.* I had already read Love Evolution (book #1) and loved it. I was so excited to get my hands on Love Revolution! Let me just say Love Revolution rocked the house!!!! This was a little bit country and a whole lotta HOTNESS!!! I really enjoyed how we got two stories out of this one with the Daniels sisters, Sam and Sara.
These two sisters are gorgeous, feisty, independent and funny as all get out. They also have the unknowing abili

Have I ever mentioned I love me some BS? No? Well I do. When it is in the form of Brutal Strength of course. Can I say that I think I loved Love Revolution a tinsy bit more than I did Love Evolution? Cause I did. I think it was because we got 2 stories pretty much in one book. One amazing book that rocked my socks.

Not sure whose story I enjoyed more…Sara or Sam’s. Sara, bless her heart had daddy issues and used men up then spit them out. She never wanted to be involved with one guy for very long
Tough Critic Book Reviews
I almost, almost okay'd this one. The prologue was strong and intriguing, but the next few chapters just couldn't hold my attention. I'm not sure exactly what it was; maybe the back and forth, but I kept having to put it down and come back to it. I guess something that let me realize I wasn't really invested was I kept having to go back to see which one was Sara, which one was Sam. I couldn't keep them straight, but I got there. It took me a bit, but I got there. It finally gained its momentum, ...more

Man of man I loved Love Evolution but Love Revolution took me by storm. I mean I love me some rocker bad boys but I love me some country singers! Holy Hades Black Cat Recording is a riot. There is always something going on down there and no matter what is going down there is always love in the air. The CEO Mary Timmons just does not realize that she has something at her label but who cares when they are making her music and money right? Well in Love Revolution we get to meet twin sisters Sara an ...more

Before I begin this review, let me just note that yes, technically you could read this one as a standalone. But why would you torture yourself?? All you’ll be doing is wondering who’s who, when random characters pop up.

For fans of Love Evolution, you’ll love this one too! Again, it’s told in alternating POVs, but this time around you get to go inside two sisters’ heads, Sam and Sara, as they struggle to overcome past issues and make their way to the top of the music world. And of course, wi

I was lucky enough to win this in a 'first reads' giveaway on Goodreads. Having read, and really enjoyed, Love Evolution, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen in the next installment! Michelle Mankin definitely does not disappoint with this second book in her series. While providing just a tiny bit more info on Marcus and Avery from the first book, this one focuses on relationships for JR (Brutal Strength's drummer) and rocker Chris Alex. Their love interests come in the form of Danie ...more

Love Revolution is amazing! I read Love Evolution when it first came out and loved it. I was thrilled when the author, Michelle Mankin, sent me an advance copy to read and review (which does not affect my opinion of the book in any way, shape, or form).

Brutal Strength is featured in this book, too, but is not the main focus as it was in the first book. Sarah Daniels is a country music star who has gone to Vancouver to pair musically with country star Chris Alex. They're both smart, snarky, and h

I have never written a book review before in my life, but after receiving an advanced copy to read from amazing author Michelle Mankin (which does not affect my opinion at all) I feel compelled to write a review. I was so sad when this book ended! It has everything, drama, hot steamy sex scenes, love, lust, mystery and my personal favorite music. Rarely does a book pull me in from page one but this one did just that. I fell in love with MOST of the characters absolutely hated one of them, even b ...more

I loved Love Evolution and couldn't wait for this one so suffice it to say I was beyond excited when Michelle offered me an advanced copy of Love Revolution!

In Love Revolution, Brutal Strength takes a little backseat while we focus on Chris Alex as he tries to reignite his music career with the help of country superstar Sara Daniels and we see Brutal Strength's playboy drummer try to tame his ways after meeting Sara's sister Sam, a Black Cat intern.

Again Michelle hooked me from page one and I d

Ok, not at all what I thought!! This author is tricky and a tease!! This book revolves around the drummer from Brutal Strength, Sara and Samantha Daniels, one of which is a country star and a former rocker who is making a comeback, but there is so much more going on as well. Avery and Marcus are also in this story. It’s nice to see how their relationship is progressing. There is a bit of a cliff hanger at the end, but luckily at this point, all three books have been released so there’s no waitin ...more

Having thoroughly enjoyed Love Evolution I was anxiously awaiting the second in this three book series. Mankin did not disappoint-her characters are well developed and three dimensional. Catching glimpses of Avery and Marcus were the high points for me (though I wish they had played a more pivotal role in this one). The focus of the story is on two couples, Sara and Chris and Sam and JR. Sam and Sara are sisters who share a haunted past. The development of the storyline moves at a good pace, whi ...more

I totally adored the book #4 in the Kiss Kiss set. Who in the world can go wrong with a little country & a lot of Rock & Roll?

Throw in some totally bad circumstances, and a bit of drama, and romance you got one hell of a book!!

The Daniel sisters have gone through a heck of a lot of drama in their lives. The hardships went through made them the strong, sassy, and brassy girls they are today.

Overall, this book is "amazeballs"!! I am totally going to get the other books in her Brutal Stren

Another entertaining read from Michelle Mankin, this one considerably more spicy than the last, maybe a little too much for a young adult read . . . depending on the age of your young adult I suppose. I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series mostly because there was more of an emotional struggle portrayed in each of the characters. They felt more relatable this time around. I was also glad to see a reprise of Marcus and Avery for brief moments! I think Michelle is hitting her groove ...more

I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this book and I was honestly pretty excited to dive in considering how much I lurved Love Evolution. It's like Michelle is psychic. She knows exactly how I like my books - fast paced. She grabbed my attention and didn't let go until I read the last word. I also love that it isn't told from just one or two character's points of view. I like knowing what everyone is thinking and feeling. Well written, interesting and full of drama. I love it, I love it, I love ...more

the book was a quick read and cute but I had a problem with the characters .. I mean Chris is a nice guy but I can't shake off the creepy picture I have for him and the way he looks at Sara .. (shudders) .. JR is another story .. I hate this guy, I can't see what Sam see's in him .. he should work harder to get her because he is such an asshole

Really good (: I loved the characters a lot and I wanted more I don't know, description and details about the Daniels drama? Ibut I was satisfied with it. So like I loved sam and John together (: and Avery and Marcus are still my favorites so I was happy they were still in it. THE ENDING WAS A CLIFF HANGER NOOOOOOOO, have to wait till may2013 OMG THE WAIT, ): aww man. But otherwise I also lived same sister and such but liked it overall.

I totally loved the second book in this trilogy. Love Revolution was everything and more than I expected. It more than lived up to Love Evolution (which is one of my fave books of 2012) and I loved every second of it.

I cannot wait till the 3rd book is out as the ending has left me wondering who Avery saw in the hallway.....could it be her twin brother??? Ohhhh I hope so as it would be awesome to read his story in the last book....

Great Read!!!!

The second verse is only the same as the first in that it is absolutely amazing! I was given an advanced copy of this amazing book where Ms. Mankin continued to develop the characters that we met in the first book. Then she added a little down home country twist with some awesome new characters that completely complement Marcus and Avery. The Country twang and rock n' roll riffs were blended seamlessly! A definite must read. I can't wait for the final book of this trilogy!

I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of Love Revolution which definitely is a great addition to the Black Cat Studio trilogy! Following the format of Love Evolution, this story uses a Shakespearean plot line (who can possibly be a better model than the Bard?) set today with the introduction of believable and likable new characters. However there is no need to know Shakespeare to enjoy this entertaining and fun read. I loved it! Download and enjoy!

Good but less believable than the first one, and less likeable. Also I got confused between Sam and Sara several times which made for some interesting interludes... The relationships went even faster than the first book (three days, omg she's the one!, a week, I love you!..... really???) and the book probably would've suffered less if it were only about one couple at a time...although obvs the plot wouldn't've worked without running simultaneously.
I read this book in the kiss kiss box set. For a limited time 12 ebooks for $2.99

I wasn't a huge fan of this one. Too many people's pov's. I'm not always a fan of insta love. There is a Cliffhanger but not from the two main characters in this book it's for the characters in the 1st book which I have not read.
