Lost for You
"Taryn was every song. And every lyric. Everything I'd ever wanted."
-- Chase Noble
At eighteen, I stood at the precipice of stardom.
I had the record deal. And the tour to back it up.
But I succumbed to the pressure of that life.
The dark side.
I had to give it all up if I wanted to live.
A trip to rehab, four years at Stanford, and I came back to Aust
Lost For You is book four in the Sixth Street Bands series by Jayne Frost. Jayne is a new to me author. I have not previously read any of the books in this series. I want to admit up front that in the beginning of this book, I did feel a bit overwhelmed with the secondary characters. I found myself re-reading parts to try to keep it straight who was who and what their relationships were to each other. This may have been avoided had I read ...more
➦Awwwww, Chase, every time you say, "Hi, baby..." I melt...
➦And every time you say "Just one more taste..." well... won't be needing these anymore...
➦That's all I got.
➦What? You want constructive criticism? Ok, then. I'll just say this. My absolute favorite thing about Jayne's writing is the way she portrays her characters. They aren't just "good" or "bad," they are both, with traits that make them feel very real. Even if she describes a ...more
“You’re the smooth surface to all my jagged edges”
This has been such a wonderful surprise!! I’ve read reviews on the previous books in this series and couldn’t wait to read this. So getting an ARC for this book, I was giddy, yet nervous, after all its a new author to me!!
Seriously, what the heck was I even worried about. This book was simply amazing to me. I loved it!! The writing was fabulous, it sucked me in from th ...more
Lost For You was my second book by Jayne Frost, and I can officially say, she has a knack for writing rock star romances. This book was steamy, emotional, and had a damaged hero and heroine who helped heal each other- my favorite kind of read!
Chase Noble was born to be in the limelight. He’s got the talent, but he also has a bad habit of drug abuse when he’s in that life, so he finds it best to stay behind the scenes and let his little brother, Cameron be the star. Taryn Ayers lost two ...more
➳I am not a big fan of music romance, which is ironic because I love music and I basically listen to anything that is music every single day. However, with this novel, my perspective of rock-band-romances has changed for sure and I have to thank Jayne Frost for that since she has written a masterpiece of a love story.
➳I was warned about this novel being a standalone, and I even asked if I needed to read the previous book ...more
“Our eyes met, and for a moment I felt a connection so deep it took my breath away.”
One of the things I love most about reading and reviewing books are the never before read authors you discover. This is my first story by Jayne Frost and I really enjoyed it. I haven’t had the privilege of reading the other books in the Sixth Street Bands series as of yet, but rest assured I will correct that in the very near future. When you discover new authors it can sometimes be hit or miss, but n ...more
Lost for You is a sexy rockstar romance with angst, real characters, and a story of new chances. It's about two characters who are in their own limbos trying to get out and start again. The chemistry between them is palpable from the very start, but it's going to be a bumpy ride. Before we go on, if you're interested in reading this, I'd recommend reading the first three books before this. I think you'll appreciate and understand the story more that way.
I have to be honest and say I'm in the ...more
Review now posted 15/1/18
This was the perfect book to read to get rid of the taste from the latest bad book I read. In all honesty I like my rock star books a bit less sombre and more cheeky but boy, did I gobble this all up and wanted more.
The writing was truly exceptional. And I'll tell you why, because even though this is my first book from this author I felt like I was reunited with an old friend. Sometimes when you read a new author you need ...more
This review will likely be all over the place and not make a lot of sense. This book was angst on steroids and depressing as hell. I did not enjoy it one bit. None of the characters were particularly likable and even by the end I didn't care if any of them got an HEA or not. BUT at the same time I found myself consumed with the story and desperately turning the pages. So clearly I have a bit of a conundrum here...
The writing was fantastic. The pace was fantastic. I was never bored or felt the ...more

Lost For You is only my second book by this author but I'm really enjoying her writing style. She was able to get me very invested into these characters, and not once did I get bored with them. I could feel the connection between Chase and and Taryn easily and it had me rooting for them to get together for more than just a night.
I can't say that their relationship was easy, because it certainly had some low points, but those high ones came and made it all better. I ...more

Now, I skate on the fringe. My brother is the genius guitarist for the band Caged, and I’m the one who helped make that happen. I’m happy to run my bars and my land development company.
Sure I am.

I was asked if I wanted to review an ARC for this one..... Its a rockstar romance...so dumb question really :P It's one of my favorite genres !!
Now I have never read anything by this author before, so this book can be read as a stand alone....though I think it would be more enjoyable, if you read the other books in this series first. I could follow along, but there were also some times I struggled a bit.
Taryn and Chase are both quite the broken characters... They have been through hell and back ...more
Our lives were like that damn river. Always flowing in one direction, leading to the same spot.
Lost For You is a beautiful read full of heartache for two individuals who are struggling with personal demons, complete with a sweet romance to ensure we’re emotionally invested in our couple’s happiness.

At the subtle shift in energy, I pulled Taryn to my side. She kept her head down as I spun us toward the main floor. When we emerged on the other side of the bar, I ushered her through the door marked No Admittance and into the hallway that led to my loft....more

Title: Lost For You (Sixth Street Band #4)
Author: Jayne Frost
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 12 ,2018
This is my second Jayne Frost book (Review of #3) and I'm going to warn you from now, this review may be slightly ranty.
I had hoped that this book would turn me into a Jayne Frost convert but no. This book left me utterly confused and annoyed as well. I din't like the first half of the storyline not that the second half was any better. The characte ...more

We all have read a lot of Rock Star books with all types of themes happening... the groupies the Hero fights off to remain true to his Woman... or the Manager who deals Dirty and sells out the Group or the Surprise Star who takes off on the charts and becomes the next big thing learning how to handle it all. All of them have serious merit and have entertained us... Me one of them.
What I found to be very special in this read was the authenti ...more
I’ve really been enjoying the heck out of this series by Jayne Frost. One of the things I appreciate the most about it is that no two stories are alike. Though they’re all frenetic and dramatic and involve heart-wrenching angst, the journey each character takes to get to their version of happy is truly unique. It’s incredible that each person has a story that was barely hinted at yet when it’s written, it’s not only unexpected but it’s beaut ...more
They call guilty pleasure?? Trainwreck story? I don't know... But I couldn't put it down!!!
A lot of triggers: lost friends in car crash, drug dependence, rehabilitation,... Groupies, ex ONS, little bf sisters... ex-bf who's "supporting"....
I liked the author's style a lot, and those twists...
Safety: no cheating, although ex-bf tried kissing with the heroine.
The hero was a manho before, he did think about Taryn like ONS, disposable one.. I didn't like it at all... ...more
I finished this book almost a week ago and I still have no idea how to properly convey my thoughts. My emotions ran the gamut from the very first word I read until the very last page. Rather than try and assimilate my thoughts into something folks can comprehend, I’m just going to lay it all out and see what happens. Here goes nothing.
Things I loved:
• Jayne Frost can write! I know that sounds like an obvious enough statement but the more time I spend reading, the more I appreciate autho ...more
In this story Chase Noble, land developer mogul, bar owner, brother to famous guitarist and almost rock star himself gets addicted to music manager Taryn Ayers. Taryn knows Chase’s brother Cam because she’s looking to sign his band with her company, but she doesn’t know the connection between the two nor Chase’s musical past and the reason for his departure from it.
The more Chase seeks her out th ...more

And now we have the infamous Chase's book. He's Cameron's (from the first book) brother, business mogul and club owner. I had NO idea we would be getting the Chase we did.
And then we have Taryn. She's part of the group that had some band members die in a car crash. Even five years later, the wounds are fresh...and unsettling.
These two meet up and all Chase is about is having something going on for about a month or so since he doesn't do relationships. Taryn is a relationship type of girl ...more

Taryn is a business savvy, independent, strong-willed, fierce kind of woman. Deep inside though she's broken after what happened to her friends and now she's trying her best to please everyone except herself.
The meet ...more

This was my first book by Jayne Frost and i was surprised by it - being part of a series, i was hoping i'd be able to follow not only the main storyline, but also the back stories that are linked to the many characters. And i had also hoped that it would be the type of story that would give me some insight as to the previous stories without being overly obvious about it.
The good news: Lost For You was so incredibly easy to follow and gie readers a pretty good idea on ...more
If that's my next tattoo, will Ms. Frost find it flattering or offensive? I will be hoping for the former.
I'm not sure what I was expecting when I started this book, but what I got was so much better. In the past, I've been hesitant to try new authors. That's something I started to change last year and hope to continue that trend in 2018.
So far, this is the second new-to-me author I've read of 2018 and I could not be happier about the choice I mad ...more
