Will’s band Ruby Riot is on a break and the only choice he has is to go back to college to complete his degree and wait for his band’s album to be released. Will was not made for school. He’s failing out of his classes and the one girl he actually wants doesn’t seem to know he exists. A problem he quickly solves by drunkenly embarrassing her and making a complete fool of himself. He also needs the help of a study group if he has any hope of passing his classes but the person in charge of this st

Another stomping good read from Lisa Swallow. I'm a big fan of her Blue Phoenix series so I was delighted when I heard about this spin-off series featuring new up and coming band, Ruby Riot. Book 1, Cadence, was about Jax and Tegan and I mistakenly thought this book was about Nate and Riley. But it's actually about Nate's twin, Will, and his crush, Fleur.

I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to continuing the series. It has all of the things I've come to expect from Lisa - great wri

Oh wow Will!
Shuffle is the story of intelligent, determined, and gorgeous University student Fleur, and one half of the hot rocker twins from Ruby Riot.
But which one? Well that seems to be overall confusion for Fleur too.

Bassist for the up and coming Rock band Ruby Riot's Will Campbell is having the time of his life. Playing support for Blue Phoenix, getting to do what he loves, all with his twin brother Nate, and of course having girls throwing themselves at him. But all good things must come

Shuffle is the second book in the Ruby Riot series, which is a spin-off from the Blue Phoenix series. It’s not necessary to read the Blue Phoenix series, or Cadence (first book in the Ruby Riot series) first, but I’d recommend it as some of the characters do overlap.

WOW - absolutely smashing story, solid character building and an amazing female lead!

Shuffle is the second book in Lisa Swallow's Ruby Riot series, a spin off of her amazing Blue Phoenix series. Will Campbell, a tattooed and pierced rocker, is the bass player for Ruby Riot, an up and coming band on the verge of super stardom. The band is on hiatus while their lead singer adjusts to new motherhood so Will and his twin brother Nate (the band's drummer) go back to study at university in order for their parents to still support them. Will gets drunk at the start of the book and make ...more

I liked this book. And I thought Will/Nate was so funny and sweet. The only reason I'm not going 5 stars is the last part of the book. How she reacted and "being scared" was just stupid to me. So I'll go 4 stars.

this one wasn't for me. Very slow and kind of immature.

I liked the first half of the book when Will was still tricking Fleur into thinking he was Nate. The rest? Not so much..

I did not like Fleur, at all. She was judgmental and she was actually pretty terrible to Will. Especially when it came to the situation with Shaun. (view spoiler)

Loved it

Will is such a fantastic character. He is genuine and interesting and humorous. The author did a great job creating this perfectly imperfect rock star. The story follows his romance with Fleur, which is hot, steamy, and relatable. I did not like Fleur's reaction toward the end of the book...the man stood up for her and she reacted horribly. I was very upset with her behavior. But overall, I enjoyed watching the relationship blossom and found Will to be a 10. Enjoyable read.

My love of rock star romances continues courtesy of the delightful bassist for Ruby Riot, Will Campbell, and the fun and flirty dialogue that sparks between him and Fleur Roberts, the woman he's inexplicably drawn to. With this new series Ms. Swallow has crafted an entertaining read featuring a band on the cusp of fame with all the early fears of failure when their dream is finally within reach. For Will, fear of failure when it comes to his Uni education is becoming more of a reality after thei ...more

Shuffle is the second book in the Ruby Riot series, which is a spin off series from her Blue Phoenix series. I really liked this book better than the first book, Cadence. While Cadence was a good book, this book exceeded my expectations and took a different direction as the first book did. I was expecting more of the same from Lisa, but I am really glad she spiced things up. This book can be read as a standalone.

Boy, what a great read! I absolutely loved this book.

Will is one of a set of twins who is instantly drawn to Fleur at a party. Even drunk, he professes his love for her. Fleur gets angry and thinks that he's just playing with her, trying to make her look like a fool. After all, everyone knows that Will and his brother are players. They don't give a crap about love.

Even though Will and his brother are a part of the band, they're taking a break because the main singer had a baby. So while on the

This book definitely isn't the typical college romance! After reading Shuffle's blurb, I was expecting the usual college/band romance where the guy is famous and there are problems in the relationship because of college and the gaining popularity of Ruby Red (the band). And while there was definitely some of these themes present in the novel, there was a twist of identity that added a whole new element to the novel and really bumped up my rating to five stars!

As a fan of Lisa Swallow's work, I could not wait to get my hands on her next installment of her Ruby Riot series. I was not disappointed when I did. I have been reading snippets about the Campbell Twins and their crazy antics since I first found Lisa Swallow's Blue Phoenix Series. (As this series is a spin-off from Blue Phoenix, I was ecstatic to finally learn more about Will Campbell.) I must admit, Lisa made me completely fall in love with him as well as Fleur Roberts in this story.

Well first things first, I love a good rock star book and I'm from the UK so this was a no brainer for me. I like to read books that are written in British English for a change.

I've read the Blue Phoenix series by this author and enjoyed it so looked forward to this. I enjoyed this a lot.

This can be read as a standalone. Reading the previous books in the series is not really required

HOLY I LOVE WILL BATMAN! Every book that Lisa Swallow writes is amazing, and Shuffle is absolutely no exception. Ruby Riot is on break so Ruby can have her baby, so Will has gone back to Uni to finish his degree to make his parents happy. He's failing badly at everything except partying, and needs serious help. Fleur is a serious student. She has no desire for any rock star distractions, especially ones that humiliate her at a party, as she hates any public attention. Will needs to join a study ...more

Will has been half of the infamous Campbell twins, partying and sleeping his way through groupies. But when Ruby Riot goes on break and he and Nate have to head back to college, he starts to want more. Particularly from the lovely, very studios, Fleur. The girl who he has had a secret crush on for two years.
Fleur is a history major. She is kind of uptight, with ideals of what her perfect man is and it no where near resembles Will.

This book is about a musician named Will trying to get the girl (Fleur) he'd had a crush on for two years by pretending to be his identical twin Nate.

I found this book entertaining in some parts, especially the whole drama about Fleur not knowing which twin she's addressing to. I liked how Will is so determined to be good enough for Fleur and for not giving up even after she hated his guts.

It's not a bad romance novel and many readers c

Knowing how much I love Lisa Swallow’s style, I put the rest of my day on hold before I started this book, and just as well I did. Shuffle hooked me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down.

Fleur hates Will and is one of the few girls who feels that way. Will has had a thing for her since he first noticed her. After pissing her off at a party he knows she won't let him into her study group when he needs help. So he pretends he to be his identical Nate. But then they begin falling for each other. What can possibly go wrong? What happens when the truth comes out? Can they overcome the obstacles? Do they live happily ever after?

Man, I thought I loved Jax but Will has my heart now. I started this book today and didn't stop until it was over. My heart is so owned right now. Total book hangover.

Will is part of the Ruby Riot twins and has a persona as part of that duo. The girl he has been crushing on for 2 years only sees the public persona and not the real Will. While on a break from touring, Will is forced back to college with failing grades. He joins a study group that Fleur practically runs.

I am thinking that perhaps this just wasn't the book for me. I really am in the minority on this one as most have loved it.

I found a few things that I genuinely enjoyed. The British/English dialect is awesome!! The twin aspect was really great. Both man whores, but one girl can change it all. Will really develops into an amazing leading man.

Fleur, which I love the name, is really kind of a pain in the rump. I really struggled to like her character. She is judgmental, snobbish, and just an all a

Will is a sexy man, “what the eff is your complex about this?”I fasten my belt and Fleur watches, smoothing her hair. “Right. You. Come with me.” I pick up her bag, and she catches as I throw it at her. Then I grab her hand and drag her out of the room." I'm thinking Will's woman wasn't impressed he took his piercings out, I knew I wouldn't have been, "the tattoo covers his chest and I slide a hand to trace the outline. “Where did the piercings go?” I ask, running a finger across his nipple."

The RR series is one of the best I've read in a long time. Hooked is not even the word to describe it. Will's story was 'Da bomb'. Engaging; CHECK; To die for characters; CHECK, CHECK; Swoon worthy; CHECK; Intriguing plot and events; CHECK. A story you'll read in a day, like I did; DOUBLE CHECK.

Still not sure how to rate this. After the first Ruby Riot, this was a bit of a letdown. Still, I've now read all of Blue Phoenix and RR, and I'm determined to stick with the series and see if Nate can win me over in book #3. Review to come.
