Twinsie Talk Book Review Presents Take What You Want (The Rock Gods #2) by Ann Lister Blog Tour Stop

Take What You Want
The Rock Gods - Book 2
Ann Lister


Mega rock star, Alex “Zander” Metcalf is burned out after nearly two years touring with his band, as well as emotionally drained after his sexual preferences were exposed by the media. He is ready for a long sabbatical – alone, and retreats to the east coast island of Martha's Vineyard; leasing an oceanside estate. 

Alex seeks the quiet lifestyle of a recluse to write new material for his band, only to meet the handsome estate manager, Chase, and his gorgeous fiancée, Danni, living in the guest house on his property. Alex's hope of solitude is soon forgotten when he discovers Chase has a repressed bi-sexual side that is aching to surface and Alex is more than happy to help him explore it. 

What neither Alex or Chase expects is the emotional power of their chemistry expanding to involve the three of them when Danni becomes entangled in their passion. Alex believes he has finally found his perfect menage relationship with Chase and Danni. 

Sometimes two isn't enough and it takes three to complete the union of a fulfilled love. But, will their new relationship be strong enough to survive when real life wants to punish them for their unconventional love? And, can they be confident in the strength of their love to take the 'happily ever after' they can only give each other?


My Review

5 of 5 Take What You Want

Okay first let me say this I am a selfish bitch and I am not sure I would want to share my man with anyone but the thought did cross my mind after reading this book because HOLY EFFING ROCK STAR these three really had something special and it was just not thrown together and half ass like most menages are but this is a story about self discovery and coming out with the feelings that you feel. I think a lot of times when men are gay and in the closet or are curious and just want to know what it would be like to be with a guy and a girl it is scary for them because they do not want to be judged as being gay or bi when they don't know what they want but for Alex, Chase, and Danni it worked for them because God bless Danni she was willing to do whatever it took to understand her fiance and his deep needed needs. Girl my hat goes off to you because I am not sure I would be okay with that because like I said I am selfish!

Alex is a burned out rock star who has been on tour for a long time but hey it comes with the territory of being a rock star. But while on tour Alex's sexual preferences come to light and the media has a frenzy with it. The media can't get or say enough about the gay rock sex God Alex. So Alex decides he needs a break and he needs to go somewhere quiet where he can write his music and be by himself. So he gets a place in the quiet serene town of Martha's Vineyard. It is there that he meets the gorgeous estate manager Chase and Chases fiance Danni.

Alex knows he feels something instantly for Chase and he is not sure if Chase swings that way but he soon finds out that Chase is Bi curious and wants something with him but he is not willing to leave his fiance and wants Danni to be a part of this relationship and friendship. When Chase talks to Danni she is confused and she is not sure this is something she wants to do but she loves Chase so she is willing to go to the ends of the earth for him.

When the three get together it is amazing what happens and I won't ruin it for you the reader but I will say this I give Danni a lot of credit because she is a girl with determination and she is willing to do anything for her true love. I can't wait for the next book in the series about Cooper lord I would love to like Cooper like a lollipop all over! tehehehehehe 

“I love you,” Alex whispered. “With everything I am. Heart and soul.” 

What they were offering was everything he'd always hoped he'd find with another man and a woman. It seemed surreal for that to be happening with the one couple he didn't want to live without – ever. He'd no longer be disposable. He'd belong to them equally, as they would belong to him. Three equal parts. And, he loved it. 


Entertainment journalist, Ryan Pierce, meets the infamous bad-boy rocker, Dagger Drummond, and walks away with a great interview and a scandalous news bit that has the potential to turn the music world on its ear. Exposing the story would boost Ryan's career, but it would also come with the risk of ruining Dagger's privacy – and possibly his Rock God status.
The unlikely friendship that develops between Dagger and Ryan brings Ryan to question more than just his journalistic oath to report the news. It also forces him to take a look at himself and newly discovered feelings – feelings that make Ryan blind to the risk of becoming front page news himself.

Will Ryan find the courage to make a life decision to give himself true happiness with Dagger or take the path that would likely lead to heartbreak and destroy his career forever?

** Fall For Me is currently a Finalist for the 2013 Rainbow Award in the gay erotic romance category.


My Review

5 of 5 Fall For Me

Fall For Me is one of the greatest M/M book I have read and I have read a lot. I love how the characters came off the page and felt like family to me. I for one love when the characters discover their true self and comes to terms with what they are feeling. For me the two main characters knew they were different and did not acknowledge the feelings they were having until they just couldn't hide the emotions anymore.

For Ryan Pierce he is an entertainment Journalist and when he goes to the sold out show of the Rock God Dagger Drummond his life will forever be changed. After the concert Ryan goes to the private room of Dagger and the do the interview but in the interview Ryan discovers Dagger's secret and that secret is huge and Ryan is changed in the moment because he has a great story to tell but if told it could damage Dagger's career and Ryan is not willing to do that.

Ryan also realizes that after that meeting that he may be like Dagger after all and what would happen if someone or anyone found out he had those interests or feelings? Can Ryan truly be himself and be with the person that makes him feel whole? Is it worth the risk for love and how will all this play out? As Ryan tries to wade through the messy feelings he is left wondering if being true to yourself and the love in your heart is worth it.

This is a story of discovering who you really are and discovering that first loves are always the hardest because there is no manual to help guide you through the rocky seas of love!
