Great rockstar series

The cover didn't draw me in, it looks more like a photo than a book cover. I was drawn by previous books the blurb and the love of the characters.

Loved Lyric and Slim. A friends to lovers story with great characters.

A sweet read with humour, banter, hotness and a little bit of angst thrown in.

Told in dual pov's with a plot that mainly focuses on the characters relationship rather than a rockstar lifestyle and what goes with it.

In this book felt there was two many spoiler

Love this book

Lyric and Slim take the slow road to find love. They are friends for two years until disaster strikes. They are so cute together along with the rest of their friends. There are lots of different emotions in this book. Love their story about their own lives also. Another cute story with the band.

description

I have recently been working my way through the Downtown series from the beginning until reaching number 4 which was this one. The rest of the series has had its ups and downs for me, but I wasn't quite prepared for how much I would like this these particular characters and their journey. As with the previous few books, we had a hint of what might come with Slim and Lyric's story. We saw them go from cordial band manager and band member to video game buddies. We got a glimpse of how effected Sli

ARC received for an honest review

Oh T.J. West you have done it again in your Downtown Series. This time with Slim and Lyric. I fell in love with these characters. Two people who started out as friends, or in this case band member and manager, who decided that resisting what they have is pointless. Who better to fall in love with than your best friend who kicks your ass at video games?!

Slim McQuaid is the guitar player for JINKS. Easy going and happy he forms a strong friendship with their new ma

A few days before Lasting Lyric was released, I was one of the lucky few that received an e copy from TJ West for an honest review. I was touched and super excited that she was going to allow me to read her newest book!
Lasting Lyric.. book 4 of TJ West's amazingly hot Downtown series.
Slim and Lyric. Slim is one of those characters that when you start a series, they are just there in the background. When I first read Forbidden Faith, I wasn't sure what the author was going to do with Slim, but t

Lasting Lyric was such a fun read. I love all the men in Jinks band all are unique and have there own situations.
I love Slim he is a crack up and he is totally unpredictable and that I loved. Lyric OMG she is one kick butt lady. I absolutely loved her spunkiness and how she never took the boys crap.
The chemistry between Slim and Lyric was smoking hot. I had to fan myself in parts.
As in most real life situations things aren't always easy and it this read there are some ups and downs and a huge sh

This sweet and sexy story pairs Slim MacQuaid, Jr guitarist for the Rock Band Jinks with the bands Manager Lyric Newton. What I really liked about this book is they are best friends first. She kicks his ass in video games and he helps her overcome nightmares from the tour bus accident that nearly killed her. When they decide to take their relationship to the next level,someone unexpectedly shows up to try to blackmail Lyric.
But the Band, their significant others and her family rally around the c

I have loved every TJ book so far, but this was my favorite! I loved that Lyric & Slim went from best friends to lovers. It made their relationship that much stronger. I love how they were there for each other. Especially how Slim did everything he could to make Lyric comfortable and then he did everything he could to protect her. He's just the sweetest!

And that twist...wow! That's all I'll say ;)

Fantastic story!

Loved it....

This was one awesome book... Loved it. I love how romantic Slim was with Lyric. I laughed and cried a little while reading it but I loved it can't wait for the next one.

OMG, I love, love, love this book & series. I NEVER want it to end. The tension with Slim & Lyric is crazy that you just want to yell at them to hurry up. The twist in this story I did not expect. I can't wait for the next book in this series. It is a must read. I could not put it down.

Lasting Lyric (Downtown Series #4)

Slim and Lyric have the kind of love we’ve all wanted or dreamed of – being with your best friend.
Slim is hilarious and unpredictable which I loved!
Lyric is feisty and speaks her own mind.
TJ West expertly weaves their relationship around our hearts, until we’re literally screaming at our Kindles to just “admit it already” – LOL.
They go from friends that play video games together, to friends who help each other through blackness (he helps her with her fears of t

Another hit for T.J. West and the men of Jinks! All I can say is Holy Hotness!! Slim and Lyric have the type of relationship that most of us dream about. Falling in love with your best friend. As soon as Lyric joined Jinks as their manager there was an instant chemistry between her and Slim. They had so much in common, that their friendship was inevitable. The competitiveness and playful banter between the two is so fun to read.
Slim and Lyric have had the more than just friends feelings for eac

Lasting Lyric by TJ West was a perfect continuation of the Downtown Series and the group JINKS. In this book we get to see the sassy and sexy side of Lyric. As for Slim man he is so witty and I swear you never know what is going to come out of his mouth. Put these two together and you have chemistry that is so HOT you wonder how they lasted this long before admitting their feelings. Don’t want to give anything away all I have to say is that Lyric finds out some info that shakes the whole foundat ...more
