Heartbreakingly Superb!!

Grab the tissues people because this author wrote a heart wrenching rock romance that took my heart out, stomped on it and then tried to put it back together.

Just before Cruise Control's first big tour lead singer, Gabriel, meets the beautiful Ariana at a charity event they are playing at. They hit it off right away and Gabriel asks her to go on tour with him. There's one little issue though because Ariana has severe panic attacks when it comes to paparazzi. Is it possib

I loved this book when it was in Ariana’s point of view in The Album,even as I disliked her character. Now in Gabriel’s Album which is written in his point of view, I like and understand Ariana’s sadness and I like her better. She was young and had no direction of her own and she didn’t want to just be “the rockstar’s girlfriend “ with zero identity. She was spending more and more time in her hotel room, it sounded pretty dismal and I felt for her. She had to walk away and it was very difficult ...more

OMG!!!!! I thought Sian's debut book The Album was beyond amazing, it is Gabriel and Ariana's love story from Ariana's POV but their story from Gabriel's POV deserves equal accolades.

Having read The Album I pretty much knew what was coming in the story and though Gabriel's heartbreak has been hinted at previously, I never thought that his pain would be so deep and raw. If you have ever experienced a devastating loss or breakup in your life this story will touch you as it touched me. I think I s

Wrecks your heart then puts it back together
Gabriel’s Album (A Cruise Control Novel) by Sian Ceinwen is a very well written rock star romance featuring a rock God with unending patience, understanding and love. This single POV of Gabe and Ariana’s love story is positive, highly emotional and mostly in a healing way. Gabe’s devastation is palpable and his heartbreak was total wreckage. After reading The Album, it was refreshing to read this love story from Gabe’s POV and I absolutely adore him ju

Didn't Resonate With Me . . .

Gabriel Knight meets Ariana Chamberlain at a charity event and becomes enamored with her. The band was starting their first tour and he invites Ariana to go with him. She is childish and immature most of the time. She doesn’t want it to get out that she is with him, afraid of that sort of notoriety. And the relationship self-destructs, which was actually a relief to the reader. I wasn’t sure if that was how I was supposed to react, but the girl was annoying. Is that

This is the first book in the Cruise Control Series. I’ve never read anything by this author and I wasn’t disappointed. The rock star wins the girl, then loses the girl. Does he get her back? You’ll have to read it to find out. The storyline flowed smoothly throughout. Ariana was childish and immature all through the book. I was glad she left. My heart ached for Gabriel. All the characters were well developed and easily relatable. There are characters you will live and ones you will hate. I love ...more

Sian Ceinwen's  Gabriel's Album is part of the Cruise Control Heroes series. Gabriel and Ariana take me hostage, making me feel all these emotions and yearn for their Happily Ever After.  Their story has so much feeling, angst, hurt/forgiveness, and steam.  I love this couple and I love the band. ...more

This is my first Sian Ceinwen book that I've read and the first in the Cruise Control Hero's series. Gabriel and Ariana are the focused characters told from Gabe's point of view. Their journey is extremely emotional until they find themselves and each other. I recommend this book. ...more

So loved this book.
It is Gabriel's POV which corresponds with The Album (Arianna's POV)
I love these two character's while reading The Album I was so mad at Arianna and while reading Gabriel's Album I was kind of annoyed by him too.
But in the end I love all the character's and realized yes we all have gone through times where we don't like people sometimes but they all have to go through pain and heartache in order to finally get their Happily Ever After and Sian makes us fall in love with thes

What an amazing book. Having just read The Album, it was great to read everything from Gabriel's point of view.

The emotional trauma that he went through with his love of Ariana, and how he dealt with it.

I loved all the characters from The Album, but Gabriel's Album gave more of an insight into the relationships and interaction of the guys in Cruise Control, and Gabriel's character particularly.

The second half of the book required large quantities of tissues and kept me up reading till 2.30am w

Rockstar meets girl, falls in love quickly. They have a sex-filled, love and fighting relationship. She cries A LOT, then leaves him. Total silence for 2 years then she shows up at one of his concerts, he sees her, loses himself after he just got over her finally. They almost have sex while he is in a relationship with someone else. He tells his current gf, they try to make it work, but they break up not long after and he falls right back to miss crybaby.

Gabriel is the lead singer of the rock band, Cruise Control, who have just made it big and are about to embark on their first tour.

He meets Ariana at a charity function a month before the tour and is immediately drawn to her. They start dating even though he’s about to leave for months on end, and when it comes down to it, Gabriel just can’t fathom leaving Ariana behind. So he asks her to join them on the tour. She eventually accepts and so starts Cruise Control’s first tour.

Ariana, it turns out

I don’t really know how I feel about the plot of this story. “Gabriel’s Album” is about a rock band, their rise to stardom and the lead singer, Gabriel Knight’s romantic entanglement with Ariana Chamberlain, a girl he meets at a charity event gig. Gabriel‘s instant infatuation with Ariana causes him to invite her on the band’s first tour whether than end their short relationship.
To the author’s credit, I like and care about all the characters except Ariana. I think the author wants us to hate A

i was given an ARC copy of this book

The book is about Gabriel who has never been in love is in a high profile band and is generally a bit of a man whore until he meets Arianna

We see the relationship unfold from start to finish the good the bad and all the in between

The author writes mainly about Gabriel his thoughts his feelings and is extremely in-depth making you fall for him cry for him and hate that he is so in love with Ari that he can’t seem to get past her

Well now we're getting somewhere. Having read The Album which is Gabriel and Ariana's story but told through her point of view, it's this one showing Gabriel's side that completes it for me. Little did I know that reading a story you already know the outcome of would spark something new and better came as more of a surprise to me than I was prepared for.
Look, it's no secret that I was hooked on Gabriel and had a soft spot for him from the beginning of the first book, but to hear the hope, lust

Gabriel's Album... Gabriel's Point of View

I had finally started reading the Album when Gabriel's Album came into my ARC so I would know what it's about and if it was a different version of the Album. I soon figured out that the The Album is told from Ariana's Point of View and this Book 📚📖 is told from Gabriel's. I actually enjoyed both of these books 📚. I have to read all the books 📚 in this series because I am invested in Cruise Control. I want to read some more about Harrison and Heather and

I enjoyed the story. Gabriel and Ariana were opposites in some ways but found their hearts to be the same. Ariana had her issues, and Gabriel tried to keep all that in mind. As things progressed, her fears overrode everything. There were moments of sadness as Gabriel expressed his pain, and joy when things worked out. I felt that the story was a bit too long, but overall, it was a good story. I do recommend it.

I love it!

I loved the way that it is written in Gabriel's voice and how he is very careful about the fact that Ariana has a problem with the media because of the past problems with her family.

I would have gave it five stars if it was complete like the Album. The link doesn't work to get the full story. This book was given to me as an arc for my honest review.

Gabriel’s POV

Seeing this all replayed in Gabriel’s point of view is eye opening. It makes you hurt for him even more. Honestly both he and Ari did the work on themselves to make their reunion 2 years later the best possible which led finally to their HEA!

The is great book. The storyline flowed easily throughout the pages and having characters that have a connection throughout makes for a great read.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I always enjoy reading different POVs. This was an ok read. I took a chance and I'm not likely to have a lingering/lasting impression. I did like it but it wasn't pulling me in as well as others. ...more
