Smooth Writing and a Well Developed Story

Very well-written. There was a lot going on, but the writing never felt forced.

Engaging! I devoured this book, wanting to know what would happen next.

Great chemistry between Kat and Klem. I liked her, but I loved him.

Exquisite attention to detail.

As intended, I despised Richard. At times he came off a little too cartoonish villain for me.

No doubt I will be going back to read book on and

Can’t wait to read the third book in the series.

"With Vengeance" by Brooklyn Ann

My Thoughts....

What a perfect pair as the author brings to us ... Katana and Klement. But as the story starts out it seems like Katana may have had eyes of another member of the Bleeding Vengeance band [Cliff] until great chemistry starts and she knew it was for another member of the band....the metal band's bassist,

The Rockstar Book I Have Been Waiting For. I Loved This Book It Was Amazing, Epic And Out Right Hot As Hell. There Was So Much More To It Than Just The Rock Star Element. There Was A Huge Back Story And A Whole Lot Of Passion. Not Only For The Characters But For The Music That I Love Too.

The Chemistry Between Katana And Klement Was Off The Chart. When They Acted On It Its Hot As Hell. There Is A Lot of Secrets In Parts Of This Book But I Won't Spoil Any Of That For You.

This book was excellent! Brooklyn is just brilliant! I loved Katana and Klement! They are perfect for each other! This was an amazing story I really couldn't put this book down I was so excited waiting for it and it was even better than I even imagined! Brooklyn has a way of pulling you into the story that just brings out all of the emotions! I can't wait to see what she writes next! I just love all her books

I loved this book even more than the Kissing Vicious. This book follows Kinley's friend, Katana or Kat as she auditions for guitarist for her favorite band Bleeding Vengeance. Since her teenage years she gushed over the bands lead vocals, Cliff. However, once she came up close and personal, he didn't exactly knocked her socks off. But the band's bassist, Klement did, and more than just socks. The lanky guy with ADHD who held so many jobs to keep busy and his overworked mind on track, surprisingl ...more

Think you'll never read a romance novel - let alone sit up all night with one until you've finished it?

Think you'd never spend hours at parties telling astonished friends (many of them hyper male musicians and surfers) that you've recently become a romance novel convert - and explaining why?

Neither did I...until by a total fluke (I was looking up music biographies of various genres, including heavy metal) I got directed to Brooklyn Anne's "Hearts Of Metal" series as a suggested read.

Kat gets a dream audition for her favorite heavy metal band, and yes she's a chick. I have to be honest I liked the fact that she wasn't a hard ass chick who likes metal. She wears makeup and dresses and is five feet tall. But I love that. Klement is in the authors words a geeky Viking. I know I know seriously hot right? He's the bass player for the band Bleeding Vengeance that Kat is auditioning for the spot of guitarist. She's twenty three, he's 35. He also has a secret! But Klement

Katana James can shred a guitar with the best of them, but she spends most of her time running a heavy metal website with her best friend Kinley. Then she is given the chance to fulfill a dream of playing with her favorite band, Bleeding Vengeance, and nothing is going to stand in her way. Not her anxiety issues or her crazy stalker ex-boyfriend. Enter Klement Burke, the mysterious bass player for the band. From the start, the connection between the two of them was sizzling hot, but he is hiding ...more

"4 out of 5 stars! Katana's (Kat) dreams are about to come true ... she just got the position to be the lead guitarist in her fave metal rock band. However, to prove herself, the band agrees to have her only be with them to record their latest record. Soon she proves herself to them while charming the pants off Klement (Klem), the lead bassist and the "band manager." Yet, with an ex and past fears trying to keep them apart, can Kat and Klement find a way to stick together through it all?

This is the second in a series but is a standalone with a little cross over. A dream come true, getting to play with your favorite metal band. Katana, despite all her personal problems, wants this more than just about anything. She is taken by surprise when it is not her teen heart throb that gets her attention. Klement has not told Katana the truth about their first meeting and he is worried that it will come back to haunt him. The attraction is strong between the two, and they come through wit ...more

Great book! This is my first book by this author but it definitely won't be my last. I love books with strong females and Kat was just that. Her dreams come true and she's gets a interview to play guitar with one of her favorite bands.
Klement is the bass player for Bleeding Vengeance, he has a secret that he's keeping from Kat. When the two act on their feelings and become more then just band members, he knows he has to tell her.

Another great book

Hearts of Metal is a rock series that is not to be missed . Both books have strong women and hot rock stars that are all heart. I am hopeful there is the possibility for more with many engaging characters that appear in Kissing Vicious and With Vengeance.

With Vengence by Brooklyn Ann is the second on the Metal Series and features two of my favorite secondary characters from the first book, Klememt and Kat. This book has intrigue, a little angst, mystery and heart which are all components of a great story!

Kat has the opportunity of a lifetime with an audition as the studio guitarist for her favorite metal band Bleeding Vengence. When she gets the gig she is determined to work hard to make it permanent.

I am reminded of the anime "Full Moon wo Sagashite" and the song titled "Eternal Snow". It talks of needing the love of another, finding it, and desiring nothing but that to keep the nightmares at bay. It's a must-watch show as much as this is a must-read book.

This book is very fast paced. There's a lot of action even when nothing is happening. It's easy to say this is not much of a romance, but an observatory story of the reality that is anxiety, PTSD, and a haunting past. With romance tossed i

I voluntarily read an Advance Review Copy of this book. I became easily lost in this story. I enjoy the way she portrays her characters, their strengths and weaknesses.
The female character suffers PTSD, however she is feisty and determined to make it in the world of heavy metal. She can fix cars, run a blog, and shred on a guitar with the best of them! The only thing she has not been good at is relationships - until now! This is the second in the series. I have not read the first yet, but it is

Falling for the elusive bassist of your favorite metal band, despite thinking you were into the lead singer until he stole your riffs. I loved reading the second book in this series. Plenty of kicking ass, hilarious moments, and one hell of a romance.

This is the first book that I have had the chance to read by Brooklyn Ann and it definitely is not my last. It is well written, though provoking, sexy and gripping. I loved how strong a character the female lead was and how the lead male wasn't your typical rock star. I was sucked in from the first page and could not put it down. I am definitely looking forward to reading more of this author's work. This is book 2 in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. Thank goodness, because I didn' ...more

I was SO excited to read With Vengeance, the second book in the Hearts of Metal series, by Brooklyn Ann. I really loved the first book and couldn't wait to devour Katana and Klement's story. There was something so real about the characters. Katana is sort of the opposite of Kinley in many ways... and I liked that about her! Kat suffers with an anxiety disorder and I admire her for not being ashamed or hiding it. She still

Katana James, just landed the opportunity of a life time. A chance to audition for a spot as guitarist for her favorite bad.

Klement is the mastermind behind the band, as well as the bassist. He's bringing in Katana as not only a favor to a friend but because of her talent. He never expects to fall for her, especially with a looming huge secret.

This is my confession: Katana and Klement. Such a cute, sweet couple. I did - for the most part - enjoy this book. The biggest issue I did have was that
