Loss—the failure to keep someone or something.
I know all about loss, and the resulting damage can do more harm than good.
Losing everything in one fell swoop… yeah, Karma’s definitely not on my side.

My life has been somewhat monotonous. Look after my twin. Play in the band. Party like a rock star.
Women have filtered in but never stayed, and now that my band mates have a

Not my first ride with this author but again K.E. Osborn manages to surprise me with Fret (Recoil Rock #4), because this book again has a different voice than the previous ones. So it never gets dull with that series.

I could use a ton of cliché lines to describe the storyline of the book. With “you never know what you got until it’s gone” being the first one that comes to my mind.
Yet non of them would do the story real justice. While the baseline is a cliché and the idea has been used multiple

I was graciously sent an Advance Copy of Fret and gotta say it is my favorite in the Recoil Series.

Matt Levine, bassist for Recoil realizes that he is the last unattached member left standing and decides to do something to find a more permanent woman to be with. Matt has a very specific list of qualities that his twin brother Nate thinks will make it impossible for any woman to live up to. Nate, meanwhile is in the worst position to be handing out advice as he and his love Ria have split up (Thi

What an amazing book and a fantastic end to this series. This book was everything that you want from a Rockstar romance. Although in saying that it was very light on the music front. The way the story flowed from the pages giving you insight to previous events that appeared in the other books was just what made this great.

The chemistry that was very clear from the beginning. The very first interaction and meeting between Matt and Alex just sizzled and left you screaming at them through the pages

Oh my. I loved this book so much I don’t even know where to begin without being a spoiler. K.E. Osborn knows how to write a story and let me tell you Fret had me so wrapped up in it that I finished it in one setting. The first thing I like about the way K.E Osborn writing is she tells it as each person’s point of view, that is what I like in reading a book. It helps you relate with the character in the story more than just a one person point of view

Fret is the last book of the Recoil series. I

Fret was a great 5 star read.

Matt wants a woman, a very particular woman and his lifestyle makes it very complicated to find what he’s looking for.

Alex is a strong woman who had an ex walk out and take everything including her money. She ended up in a homeless shelter for awhile. Now she is working with Nate at the art gallery and is such a great friend. She has such a great personality and style.

When Matt and Alex meet they hit it off. There is something

Wow, I don't think I've ever loved yet wanted to hurt a character as much as I did Matt. Man, he was the sweetest guy but he can't see what is in front of his face the entire time. This story line although one that I've heard, its so much more. The events he gets put it and the characters in this book are so freaking awesome!!! I was thrilled to see Whisper again because that man is flipping hilarious and Alex she is perfect. I couldn't imagine a better person than her. She is a bit of everythin ...more

Fret by K.E Osborn

**Don’t FRET, this series is totally worth it!**

A rocker’s life isn’t always about wild girls, and partying hard. At least not when you are looking for more, when you are looking for the ONE.

In book 4 of the Recoil Rock Series we follow Matt aka Matty Moo. Matt is an awesome guy that loves and admires his twin and his band brothers. Family is important to him, since he and his twin both lost their mother so young. As passionate as Matt is about his music and family, he is just

Did Matt meet his perfect match.....or was she someone unexpected?

Finally, Matt's story has arrived. This is the one that I have been waiting for since the Recoil boys were first brought to my attention. Before reading FRET, you really do need to read SNARE, as the two stories do overlap, and it's also where Alex is first introduced to the readers.

Matt is a perfectionist, looking for the perfect woman to come into his life. Instead, he meets Alex, a blue haired, tattooed and pierced woman, who

Last but not least Matt will have his story told, and boy oh boy, this story will be the epic finally to this exceptional series.

As we know Matt is the twin with the attitude but underneath that hard shelf we find a man with a heart bigger than the world. It has been told there is always someone and Matt finds out that Alex is his. But like always this will not be an easy journey.

Once again KE Osborn has delivered the perfect ending to this incredibly good series. Is always good to read about ho

5 FABULOUS ROCK STARS

Well first off I am a true believer that KE Osborn is my go to rocker writer. This Recoil series had me from book 1.

Fret the 4th one is Matt's story and he is the last band member who is not attached. Matt is a perfectionist and wants perfection in his woman. He enlist a dating site Gurr and his story unravels. The plot itself has been done before but with KE she has just done more with it and has written it flawlessly. Lots of clichés but to be honest in this book I did not

(4 stars)

This is part of a series, I do highly recommend that you read the previous books before even attempting to dive into this, as they all sort of just sort of flow into each other.

Matt met Alex in Nate's book, when she was hired on at the gallery, and sort of as a babysitter for Nate. Alex and Matt hit it right off and soon become best friends. The two are in the same place in their life, looking for that someone special. So they both decide to try out a dating app, whi

So sad to see this series end but so happy with the send off - very deserving.

Fret finally brings us Matt's story. While all his band mates are now all loved up, Matt continues to search for his "perfect 10". He has a very strict set of rules that his future partner must meet and he won't settle for anything less. after some convincing he decides to give online dating a go but only if his best friend, the lovely, crazy Alex also joins. And so begins their journey of looking for that special some

First up, congratulations KE Osborn on another terrific book tying up this fabulous series. You rock!

Secondly, oh what a beautiful romance this story is and extremely entertaining-as all of this author's books are!

Matt and Alex meet at Nate's art gallery and become firm friends. Together they start internet dating and become each others 'wingman'! Some epic adventures and times are had by both.

My only issue is that...the series is over! 😢I have loved every bit of this series and enjoy the way th

This is the 4th book in this awesome rock series, and I have been waiting for Matt’s story, and what a story it is. Matt is looking for the perfect woman, and when he strikes up a friendship with Alex, they could not be more opposites if they tried. Together they venture into online dating, but will Matt eventually realize what is right under his nose? No spoilers this series can be read as standalone, but personally, I think the series really needs to be read in order, as all of the characters ...more

Matt is the sensible one in the band. Alex works for Matt's brother Nate. When Matt decides he wants a girlfriend he gives a try at internet dating with the help of Alex. Their are specific requirements he is looking for. Will Matt find love on the internet or could it be closer than he thinks? I enjoyed this story of two people trying to find happiness and love while struggling along the way. I liked that it included the other guys from Recoil so we could see how they are doing.

Expect the unexpected!

What if you have set a parameter for your ideal mate, and when you finally found that one, you still don't feel anything for that perfect match? That elusive feeling that you seem to find with that one person who is the total opposite of your ideal person! You'd better catch up and find out if Matt, Recoil's bassist, will choose the right one!

I was provided a copy for review purposes.

Love, love , love.

The guys of Recoil and their ladies are a great bunch. This series is as good as rocker romance gets. Matt and Alex are the last to join the couple crowd. Read it, read them all, you won't be sorry.

Fret by K.E. Osborn is the fourth book in the Recoil Rock Series. Every book can be read as a stand-alone, but I recommend to read the books in order. Book one, Pick is Danger and Lunars book. Book two, Plucker, and my favorite in this series, is Ryan and Tillies book. Book three, Snare, is Nate and Zarias book. And now Fret. Fret is Matt and Alexs book.
Matt is the bassist of Recoil and twin to Nate from Snare. Hes a womanizer, perfectionist and wants more.
And there is Alex. Shes Nates manager a

This is such a great series and with every book I fall more for these guys. Fret is Matt's book. Each books are standalones but they are all so great your gonna want to read them all.

Matt is the bassist for Recoil and the last single man standing. Ready to settle down he decides it's time to look for his "perfect" woman. Alex works for Nate, coming into the fold her and Matt become fast friends. She fast became one of my favorite characters in the series. She's funny, cute and extremely sassy.

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review. This is the book that I have been waiting for, Matt Levine the Bassist of Recoil and the smart and sensible twin. Fret will keep you engaged from the dedication right up until the last word of the epilogue. His best friend Alex will cause you to have tears running down your face and not in a bad way as the things she does and says make you laugh until your sides hurt. Matt's story is one of those you don't know what you h ...more

Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.
