Til The Last Lyric is the conclusion to the very tumultuous relationship of rock star god Cash McGraw and Journey Pierce. This story had it’s ups and downs while being flooded with angst and heartbreak that you couldn’t help but feel something for.

After reading the From the First Verse and being a bit disappointed with it, I was curious to see how this story was going to wrap up and if the author was going to delve more into Cash’s past. Picking up right where the last book left off, This sto

Rock star Romance

Till the Last Lyrics is the turbulent conclusion to Cash and Journey’s story in the Life of Debauchery duet. M. Robinson was written a story of addiction, hope, and all-consuming love here and I devoured it word for word. Since reading her Pierced Hearts duet I have been obsessed with her books. I even went ahead and bought the first books in many of her older series because I love the way she tells her stories. So, it co
What a Journey!! (No pun intended) Cash and Journey continue their rocky relationship in part two of the “life debauchery duet.” With the surprise cliffhanger in book one we follow Cash McGraw through his rise to rocker fame, his feelings for Journey “Junie” Pierce and all that he has been through in between. He is his own worst enemy at times with all that he does to himself. Can he ever truly be redeemed or is Junie to late to save him from himself? Drugs, Rock&Roll, and Self loathing is what ...more

ARC received for an honest review

I have been reading M. Robinson since her very first release. Every time I receive a new book, I tell myself "this time she won't rip my heart to shreds."

And I was doing really well and then BAM - my heart hit the floor,just in time for her to stomp on it... again.

Cash and Journey's story is not an easy one to read. If you have read her Good Ol' Boys series, I felt this story was most like Austin and Briggs story.

I had a love/hate relationship with Cash. He was s
This is me after reading this book: 😔

I was so optimistic after "From the First Verse", that book had only the necessary amount of drama, it was well-balanced, and after the cliffhanger, I was looking forward to "Till the Last Lyric".

Unfortunately, this was too over the top for my taste. The drama, on top of drama, on top of drama, was very unrealistic, to the point that it was almost comical.

I could overlook Cash being the stereotypical rockstar that has issues with substance abuse, but the fac

First thoughts: This book has been my most anticipated read this year. Going back into the world of Johnny and June aka Journey was a surreal experience. I am still reeling, drowning in all the emotions. This story took me on a wild ride, revealing new details about our reigning couple that tore at my heartstrings.

Ugh this author excels at making you think you know all, only to ripe the rug out from underneath you. It would be a lie if I said I didn’t tear up at times. HOLY HECK.

5 BEST DUET STARS!! This is by far the best duet I have read!! Cash and Junie have taken me on a ride I will never forget. Their story had me crying so hard, I could not see the words or catch my breath. The feels in this story are off the charts....your heart will be squeezed and shaken dry all the way through their story. You must read this duet.

**DO NOT READ UNTIL YOU HAVE READ From The First Verse! This book is the conclusion to FTFV**

The conclusion to Cash and Journey's story is a beautiful, heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, soul shattering, and intense read. My emotions were all over the place and while I was reading 'Till The Last Lyric, my anxiety was going through the roof. This book literally takes a toll on your emotions. One minute you'll be smiling and laughing and then the next you'll be crying. I've sworn on many occasions that

And yet again The Queen of Angst had me on the edge of my seat from page one!
Til the Last Lyric was an epic end to an amazing duet.

The emotional rollercoaster had me concerned for the safety of my kindle. Cash McGraw is the broken hero that every girl would kill to fix.

Cash and Journey’s story will have you glued to the pages and at times make it feel like your heart is literally breaking.

I highly recommend! You need this duet in your life!

"The past is a great place, and I don't want to erase it or to regret it. I don't want to be its prisoner either." -Mick Jagger

The truth is that I'm having issues with Cash since the "Pierced Hearts" duet and even though, the things smothered a little bit between us in the first part, I'm not really sure that i saw him in a different light in here.
Maybe i was expecting a little bit more of the second part...

‘Til The Last Lyric is the best book Monica’s ever written. It is a poetic masterpiece that crushed my heart and now Cash McGraw owns my soul. M weaved an epic journey that will blow your mind. I didn’t even want her to give Cash a book I hated him so much. Well I was so wrong because Cash sang to my soul in a way I’ll never forget. This story devastated me and filled me with so much hope that it stole my breath more than once. I couldn’t even contain my emotions or control my tears. This book i ...more

“It may have been in pieces, but I gave you the best of me.” – Jim Morrison

M Robinson certainly pulls no punches when she turns on the angst and emotion in Cash McGraw’s raw and gritty story. A rock star, friends to lovers’ duet that took us from past to present throughout, the emotion gripped our hearts, bringing us to tears – tears of hope, frustration and pain. Cash and Journey’s story isn’t a pretty one, but it is compelling reading!

Before I begin let me just start by saying that this is the second book in the Life of Debauchery duet, if you haven't read From the First Verse walk away now and come back when you get your life together.

Ok now that that was said lets get down to it...

M Robinson the evil genius that she is out to kill her readers with this one. There was moments that I didn't know if my "I don't cry while reading" self was going to make it. I thought that there wasn't that much that Robinson could throw at me

My life as a romance reader can be divided into two clean parts. Before and after M. Robinson. Before finding her stories, I had no idea words and fictional characters can cause so much pain. Till the Last Lyric was another heartbreaking angst fest. Where I cried, I cursed and I suffered. And yet I loved every aching, intense, passionate and musical moment.

Cash McGraw is a rockstar. Living the proverbial life of sex, drugs, rock and roll. But he is a broken man. Anger. Hatred. Guilt. Heartbreak.

Cash and Journey's story caught me by such a good way. I knew it would be rocky, and I knew Cash would be broken; but M Robinson did not pull any punches with this duet!!! And I honestly couldn't imagine it any other way.

This book started off with the final scene in Book 1, but from Cash's POV. It was eye-opening, so raw and real that I found myself teary-eyed from the start. My heart broke for Cash so many times in this book. He lays it all out there - he is broken, and won't let
FIVE EMOTIONAL STARS for Journey and Cash 💛🖤💛🖤!!!



M. Robinson did it again!

She wrote one more emotional duet that stole my heart and then shattered it in a thousand pieces.

But, in the end, it put all the pieces together.

"'Til the Last Lyric" is an emotional rock star romance with age-gap and friends to lovers tropes.

Journey is a female character that I loved from the beginning of this duet.

She is an old soul who sees people different and she would do anything to make

This may be a short review, but it’ll be sweeter than any tea out there.

‘Til The Last Lyric’ is book two in the Life of debauchery duet by M. Robinson. It’s Cash freaking McGraw and Journey Pierce’s story.

What M. Robinson gives to readers is powerful, raw and brilliance. It shines all throughout this story!

A full blown rockstar living a rock star life and just a regular girl who was his only light in a world before and after the debauchery. What could happen?

What could happen?

I was nervous beyond belief for TTLL because if there’s one thing I know it’s that M Robinson can pull twists that will leave you completely blindsided!

She did not disappoint and she delivered a book that blew me away! Cash definitely had many demons to fight! He had the battle of a lifetime and it was an ugly one! But the only way to go from rock bottom is up! He just needed to find the strength to fight and he found that through family and love!

Journey! I was taken aback when I saw who Cash’

This book made me really sad for cash because he was going through so much pain but he never wanted anyone to help him but I love that journey was always there for him even when he didn’t want her there and I really loved her for it and hated her for it because sometimes he really hurt her and I hated that so much but I really love this series and I can’t wait tell the next book.

If you’re a die-hard Queen of Angst fan, you know just how wickedly amazing M. Robinson’s books can get. This book? It’s her best work. It’s poetic. It’s imaginative, innovative. Journey and Cash are the raw, bitter, truth of love. Til the Last Lyric is the love child of Crave Me & Undo Me. Cash Mcgraw’s one goal is to absolutely destroy the hearts of readers and trust me when I say, he succeeds.

Remember how I said that Monica has been dubbed the queen of angst for a reason? She took it to a whole new level with this book. I had actual pains in my chest feeling every single characters anguish, and had tears steaming down my face from nearly the beginning. This is the book (and duet) our author was clearly meant to write, and it shows.

This book picks up right where we left off; with Cash asking Journey to marry him and show him what love is. These two have such an intense, painful, exhi

I C-R-I-E-D.

I full blown cried.

Now that it’s clear... I’m not gonna lie, Cash has been on my s**t list for a while and the first book in his duet didn’t change it. Okay, it did. The point is, if you were like me and thought Cash hasn’t redeemed himself completely, I have good news – that I won’t tell you because I’m still dead inside.

See? You know you finished a great book when your review doesn’t make sense, your eyes are still wet, and you are not able to pick up another story

I have realized that no matter what I write in this review, that it will not do this duet / 2nd half of this duet justice. I could never come even close to describing the greatness that this book has to offer. Suffice to say, I'll try my damnest.

Book two of the Life of Debauchery duet and we continue with the epic love of Cash and Journey. M Robinson never fails to take her readers on an emotional rollercoaster but this duet has surpassed her previous books. The truths that are Cash's life when laid bare are as devastating as they are heartbreaking. You may be like me and had ideas of how the story would go but I wasn't even close.
