***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
As a music journalist, I’ve interviewed rock stars from all over the globe, using my special “intuitions” to pen some of the most in-depth and personal interviews in the business. Meeting Maggie’s Bones—and especially their intense bass player, Mage—proved to be a life-changing experience. I was immediately drawn to this strange but intriguing man, and we spent an amazing night bonding over our similar experiences growing up “freaks”. We had a fantastic connection, unlike anything I’d ever experienced…
Until Mage started talking about dreams, about destiny and fate, and it brought up too many painful memories…ones I’d buried long ago in a desperate bid to function as a normal human being. That didn’t quite work out as planned. Now I’m spiraling down a depressing, anxiety-filled hole, and while I want so desperately to believe that I can heal from my past and love again, love Mage, I’m afraid I may be Fated to be alone…
Take another wild ride with the hard-rocking members of Maggie’s Bones, and see if love can once again cure the haunted.
Author Note: While Fated is a stand-alone story, readers will get greater enjoyment (and more hot, emotional rockers) by first reading Haunted.
She describes the locations of her books with such vivid details that I felt like I was in the cemeteries in New Orleans, or in the mansion in California. I felt like I had been to these locations and could easily picture myself right there with the characters. The backdrop for the story is amazing as is the plot and the rollercoaster ride that the author takes us on.
The best part of this book (again my opinion) is that she has mentioned some characters (Danny Black) from other books (The Teacher Series) and integrated them with her amazing characters from Maggie’s Bones. If there were ever a book that completely combined these amazing characters together it would be so epic (hint, hint).
I enjoyed getting to know Mage and Sammara and had fun exploring the ongoing relationship with D and Jaylene as well as Star and Mckenzie – I really cannot get enough of these characters and am already looking forward to reading more about them in the next book! I even admit that I like Marcus, even though he isn’t exactly lovable or even likable at times…I know that author R.L. Merrill will redeem him soon and make him into the hero I know that he can be!
This is book 2 in this series, but it can be read as a standalone – I do recommend that you read book 1 (Haunted) as well as it is amazing and will give you more insight into the characters in Maggie’s Bones. If you haven’t read anything by this author you are missing out and you need to get started right away!! I know that once you start reading her you will be addicted just like I am. Add them to your TBR list now and get started on this Rock and Roll journey!
