~Blurb~
Cooper Ryan is living the dream. Between the parties with rock royalty, booze, groupies and performing to crowds of thousands with his band Taint, life seems pretty sweet. There’s just one thing missing: the feisty little red-head that took his baby and ran off with his heart. Throwing himself into music is the only thing keeping him sane.

Until a run-in with a nonplussed, package-wielding PA throws everything off balance.

Ali Jones is having a craptastic life. Her grandmother died, leaving her homeless, penniless, and alone, and her boyfriend left her for a tramp who takes her clothes off for money. That’s why when she lands her dream job at a record company it seems like it’s too good to be true.

Because it is.

Slapped with an ultimatum, Ali must decide if facing the horror of the unemployment line is a fate worse than going on the road with four rowdy rockers hell-bent on making her life misery.

He’s adored by millions.

~MY REVIEW~
     Yes of course I’m giving Revelry 5 Stars! We all know how much I dig Carmen’s word style. We all know that I always recommend her books to everyone! They’re that good. Being a Bestselling Author speaks for itself, but I want to tell you why I loved Revelry; simply said I had a great time reading this book. It’s a fantastic start to a new Rock and Roll series completely Carmen Jenner style. What does that mean? I promise you the only thing you will not like about Revelry is that you’ve finished much sooner than you wanted to.

  Revelry. Is a spin-off rocker series from one of her characters from the Sugartown Series (Another Must Read). Taint 1 follows Cooper Ryan, Coop to his friends, and Ryan when he’s pissed someone off. Now Ali falls into that category. Ali-Cat, as Coop likes to call her, has tripped and been thrown into his bands’ tour as a personal assistant. Snarky and trying to best each other in one-liners, their chemistry is off the charts and it takes everything to not act on those feelings. But what they never counted on is Levi. Coop’s bandmate and sometimes it seems his other half brain. The polyamorous relationship that soon begins will have the toughest critic swooning at the knees with writing that makes you want to jump into the fun! But as always, Carmen doesn’t like her readers to stay in the rainbows for too long, when the dark clouds descend … Get ready for some dark moments, ones that could tug your heart and make your eyes bug out, while you are silently screaming, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!??”
    
Revelry has the perfect flow from beginning to end. Brilliant writing once again with just enough dialog and description that positively makes the reader feel every emotion; every laugh, every tear, every pull, every ounce of love. Once I started from the dedication I was fan-girling.  By Chapter 2 the real world stopped and I was on tour with Taint. By the end of the book, I actually said, that was pretty freaking great, she did a great job. I mentally high-fived Carmen and now am ready for what comes next. 

   
  As always, this is my honest review and I thank Carmen Jenner and her team for giving me the chance to read an advanced readers copy.  Now go one click and

~Excerpt~

My vision is partly obstructed by Ali, but the sight of her head bobbing as she takes him in her mouth is all I need to know what’s going on. Levi meets my gaze across the limo. There’s gloating there—that much is obvious—but there’s also understanding. When you spend as much time together as we do, you come to know your bandmates pretty well. For all his talk, he’s not as big of a douche as he claims to be. He may not ever sleep with the same woman more than once—with the exception of Ali, I guess—but I know he’s not immune to the loneliness our lifestyle creates. It’s strange how you can be adored by millions and yet completely alone all at the same time.
He slides his hand into her hair and closes his eyes, throwing his head back against the seat.
“Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck,” he whispers, and then he gathers her hair to the side and shifts her body so that my view is completely unobstructed. I watch as she works her hands up his shaft in time with her mouth. He doesn’t attempt to fuck the back of her throat and make her choke on it, the way we both had that first night we fucked her. Instead, his touch is gentle. Reverent.
It makes me crazy, and hot as fucking hell. I shift uncomfortably, adjusting my cock within my jeans. I don’t make a move towards them, though I want to. I want to bury myself inside her and mark her as mine, but at this point the lines are so fucking blurred it doesn’t matter whom she belongs to. Him. Me. The both of us, or neither one.
I lean forward, taking a glass from the shelf and a crystal decanter filled with amber liquor, and I pour myself a drink, and then I slide back into the leather to watch.
“Play with yourself, Red,” he whispers.
“No.”
“Do it,” I say, and she turns around to glare at me. I can’t tell if she’s disappointed I’m not joining in, or if she forgot I was even here.
“I don’t want—”
“Why are you suddenly so embarrassed?” I say sharply, swigging back more of the scotch than I should.
“I’m not embarrassed. I’d actually rather that you joined in.”
“I’m watching,” I say, eyeing her coolly over my glass. She scowls at me a moment and then she kneels up, steadying herself with one hand on Levi’s thigh. She wriggles her skirt up over her hips and bends over. Everything is on display as she takes him in her mouth again. I close my eyes, not wanting to watch her on her knees in front of him, her head bent low, her full fuck-me lips wrapped around Levi’s cock. I feel as if I’m on a ride that’s spinning out of control and I can’t find a way off. I can’t make it stop. And I so badly want it to stop.
