Five star Winner

I was just so excited to finally read the exciting new second book of the most wonderful rocker series, Everything After. Written by my favourite author, Melissa Toppen. I thoroughly adored the story of Gabe Preston, with this emotional rock star romantic experience of a life time and all his ups and down as well. I enjoyed their rockstar romance, with all its ups an downs as well. I just so enjoyed this book!!

Gabe now had hit the top. Sleeping his way acros

Shortly before getting this book I read the first book in this series to get a feeling what I am dealing with. “Everything in Between” by Melissa Toppen was different from the first book.

To me it felt that Gabe had changed or maybe we did not see enough of the real him in the first book. I like the writing style from this author it has something unique to it. Her characters have an “insta” feeling around them without being too much.

Usually “Insta”-anything does not make me feel to good while rea

I really really enjoyed this fast flowing, beautifully written story. Of missed chances and having to grow up and become what is needed of you. This is a typical Rockstar book but it just flowed from the pages again and I found that it was over before I knew it and I was left fulfilled and happy.

The story of Gabe and Rae is a little different as it is  a second chance romance and a book where proof is needed for forgiveness and a love that never died at all. I so love this group of men and thei

Great Book

I love the way this book just flows. Gabe is the guitarist for the band Ever After and he is taking the sex and drugs part of being a rock star a little too seriously for the rest of the bands liking. He is given an ultimatum, get sober or get out. When he is told they will be returning to Athens Georgia where they first started to record their next record, Gabe is not happy. He has Bodyguards escorting him everywhere, his band mates and his bff Nora are watching him like a hawk. Stopp
I had a difficult time connecting Gabe, the selfish man-whore in book one with this Gabe, the sensitive boyfriend/father in this book. Rae is a beautiful, responsible young woman and I wonder if forgiving Gabe, for all his transgressions, will give her the family and future she desires. But then where does this leave Corey?

“The moment his hazel eyes land on mine, I’m lost in their depths. My god, the hold this man has on me. No matter how this goes, I don’t think there will ever be a man who will make me feel the way Gabe does.”

I really liked this book even though it had me on edge and at times wanting to cry. The characters sucked me in from the beginning and never me me go until the book ended, though they were still there.

Gabe made me fall in love with him. He started off on shaky ground but her grew on me. He never gave up. He fought tooth and nail to get what he wanted. There was drama and laughs and oh my gosh so much love. We get to see the rockstar lifestyle. He never hid and let his past be known. He loved hi

Gabe and Raelyn's story tugged on my heart strings the entire time I was reading it. I felt emotions that I didn't think I will feel with it being a rocker romance. The event that played out in this book were written perfectly. I was able to relate to every single character that was involved big or small.
Sometimes the love you thought you had found slips through your finger tips but it does sometimes eventually find its way back to you in a different form.

I received and voluntary reviewed an ARC of this book. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.

The more books I read by Melissa the bigger the fan I am. This is the second book in the Everything After series. Gabe was truly living the rock n roll life style, alcohol, drugs and a different woman every night. When he is forced to change his ways he finds something he never knew he was missing. Will he be able to prove his worth to the only woman to capture his at

I liked the way Gabe was when he was with Rae, “only when I’m around you.” He leans in for a brief kiss. “I just can’t help myself, you drive me crazy.” He speaks against my lips before pulling back just enough to meet my gaze. " I liked this book, I loved Gabe.

Star Rating - ****

This story picks up where we left off in Everything After in terms of timeline, but follows Gabe's story. We briefly met Gabe in book 1 but don't really get a sense of him until we see him now. He has been drinking and taking drugs along with sleeping around for the last 2 years of the tour and the rest of the band give him an ultimatum; clean up your act or you're out. Since the tour has ended the boys have all moved home to Georgia and Gabe is reunited with a blast from the p

Great read

I loved how this book followed. Man-whore Gabe finally had a dose of reality hit him in the face. Rae has lived him for a long time, but can their past and present lead to a glorious future?

So much drama in this one. In wish the book was a little longer shop were could've gotten more of them. That would've been perfect, but their story was still great to read.

Second chances. This was actually a very sweet story. Gabe was on the path to destruction until his friends and band mates stepped in. Now back where they started he runs into a girlie he knew in his past. Great series.
