Riven (Riven #1) Reviews
ARC review for NETGALLEY, Roan Parrish is really hit or miss with me. For me this one was not grabbing my attention and I gave up about 15% of the way. This is most likely a case of just not clicking for me as everyone is loving this book. I may give it another go sometime later down the road.
Theo & Caleb .. a beautiful story of second chances, moving forward and finding courage. Both guys were deeply in love with each other but Caleb fought each step, not trusting that he was good enough. Battle scars and history seemed to drive his decisions, especially in being a hermit. Bless Theo for his bravery and love ... there is always hope.
I have read a number of books by this author that I really enjoyed and when I read the blurb for this one, I got really excited. I mean "rock stars" are a definitely a weakness of mine...Add the words "rough and damaged" and I am sold!! I couldn't wait to open this baby up.
Theo is the lead singer of the up and coming rock band "Riven". He really loves singing but being the focus of the band is not all it's cracked up to be. Theo is being hounded by the paparazzi and to make matters worse...his b ...more
Omg. I am slain.
So so good!
I love music. (not that I really understand the procedure of making it - that's my partner's thing!
I love musicians (see above XD)
I love Roan Parrish's writing.
So much exquisite depth, so much real feeling, so much thoughtful exploration of emotions and so much reality in how people react.
Theo and Caleb rock (and no that's not meant the music way).
They have got their issues, deep set, damaging and hurtful.
But each man knows that he has found something special with ...more
4.5 almost true love ★'s rounded all the way up!
I love Roan Parrish’s writing. Seriously. I’ve said it before but I am going to say it again. She is easily and I’ll also add quickly climbing to the top of my favorite list. She has a way of writing that I feel I can see it, hear it and feel it. It's like magic. This was no exception.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this one though, favorite author or not. Let’s get the disclaimers out of the way. First, I don’t normally even touch a bo ...more
This author understands music. This author understands writing. It just blew me away!!!
This is my absolute favorite of Roah Parrish so far.
And as always, after reading such an incredible story, words get stuck...
I loved Theo and Caleb so much. Sweet, dear Theo. I wanted to hug him all the time.
Being so gifted in his making music but being to unhappy with his life that had brought him. Yes, he loved his music but hated all the attention. But kept on doing it because that was expected of ...more
THIS IS ON MY KINDLE!!!! Nope, I'm not freaking out at all. Like at all. Not even a little bit. And no, I don't have my kindle open to the cover so I can stare at it. Not at all.

Can we just stare at that cover?!?!
Ese chico de la portada es maravilloso... El contenido del libro, pues como casi todo, irá en opiniones, pero para mí también lo ha sido. Una historia de amor entre dos músicos que viven un momento distinto en sus carreras, pero soportando ambos un peso que les impide ser felices y sentirse bien con lo que hacen, el hecho de encontrarse cambiará sus vidas.
La dinámica entre los personajes es una que ya hemos visto en otros libros de Roan, no es algo nuevo. Por un lado Theo tiene éxito con su grup ...more
