    There’s an ancient Japanese artistic discipline of repairing broken or cracked pottery with a lacquer infused with gold or silver. This is called Kintsugi. Turning the broken into pieces of art. This is exactly what Roan Parrish does. She takes these fractured bits of humanity - broken by the world, the mind, or a misplaced love and recreates them. Transforms them into gleaming, beautiful wholes. The cracks are still very visible but the sharp edges are now gleaming and connected. Their imperfec ...more

    I finished this yesterday and I feel a bit of a loss to be honest.

    I'd like to see a little bit more maybe. I'm just not ready to let Jude and Faron go.

    So, I'm the first to admit I don't necessarily like all that much realism in my romance books. I mean, I'm not here for what I get in real life, you know? But Roan's books most of the time do deal with real life shit and I seem to love it.

    This book was a little scary. I've been depressed. Not diagnosed or medicated or anything on that level, but s

    Sometimes I am lucky enough to read a book that really touches me and makes me think about all the great things I have going in my life. Invitation to the Blues is one of those books. It's brilliant, amazing, thought provoking, smart, sexy, sad, happy . . . and just over all fantastic.

    I felt like I immediately connected with Jude. I wanted to hug him, feed him, love him, counsel him, listen to him, console him, and just be with him. And the funny thing is, Jude would want absolutely none of tha

    This one was so good! I fell hard for the writing and I highlighted a lot. So poetic and full of emotions. I loved it!

    I've also read the Middle of Somewhere series by this author and enjoyed all the books. But Invitation to the Blues was pretty different, as one of the main characters suffers from depression and anxiety.

    It's the second book in the series Small Change but can be read as a stand-alone. The beginning was super slow paced and I'm not really a fan of slow burn romance, BUT

    Heart-wrenching and utterly gorgeous, Invitation to the Blues is Roan's strongest and best book yet.

    It tells the story of Jude Lucen, Christopher's brother, as he attempts to get back on his feet. Jude suffers from depression, something that isn't glossed over. For as beautiful as this book is it was also hard one at times because my own experience with depression so closely echoes Jude's. And because this is written in Jude's perspective it's heart-wrenching to watch him suffer. I had to put t

    "Tears pricked my eyes. It had been so damned long since anyone had held me, just held me, with nothing else at stake."


    But what hit me so hard was the compassion with which Jude was treated by Roan's writing. Given I have suffered from depression I can be wary of stories that deal with the topic but this was done with such care that I shed some tears of healing for myself.

    Faron and Jude's relationship is just so touching and soft. They fit so perfectly together.

    "It was like learning a new language of proximity. A language that finally felt like my native tongue."


    Invitation to the Blues also brought appearance from old favourites Daniel & Rex and of course Ginger & Christopher. Ginger and Daniel are as hilarious as usual and up to shenanigans.

    But Jude and Faron are the one's that truly shine and it is glorious. This may not be an easy read but goddamn it was in an exquisite one.

    ***5 Stars***

    2018 FAVORITE!!! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! This book is raw, honest and so damn beautiful. It makes me believe in love, humanity and that everything can be okay.

    "Love and battle."


    Full review to come once I come down from this book high.

    I played. I drifted from piece to piece and movement to movement because it didn't matter. Faron's arms held me tight, and he pressed kisses to my back every now and then. Sometimes he hummed along and I felt the vibration up and down my spine. Mos
