Face the Music (Replay #1) Reviews
Loved this book a lot. It deals with a difficult subject to get right - mental illness - but does so without over-playing it or under emphasising the seriousness.
Lincoln and Jace were wonderful together in the flashbacks and it was easy to see why neither had been able to ever move on properly. I also loved the whole fated aspect which KM weaved into the narrative as it worked well for their relationship development ten years later
The book doesn't pull any punches when it deals with Lincoln's " ...more
Rock star second chance m/m romance
I felt like the book was well written and thought out. I'm not a fan of darker themes...suicidal thoughts, cutting, mental illness. I feel like it's a personal preference and it just isn't my favorite.
I'm also not a fan of second chance romances because I don't like that both parties suffer being apart for a crappy reason. All of these factors factored into my rating.
The story follows rock star Linc who left the Love of his life, Jace, 10 years ago to b ...more
As I read this book I picked up the clues that indicate real life major depression recurrent with hypomania, a form of bipolar disorder. I was impressed with how well done the show don't tell was. This book allowed the reader to reach that idea without being beat over the head with it. The fact that a character points out he has bipolar he is not the disorder.
I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Each finds a second chance at love during the band's hiatus which starts due to happenings a ...more
This is the first time I’ve read K.M. Neuhold and I was impressed by this author’s ability to tell a story and the way one of the character’s need for self harm was woven into the plot. This was not an easy romance, the two main characters had a history from childhood friends to teens with big plans together when their lives were changed dramatically by a seemingly selfless act that left them both spiraling and trying to forget one another in a variety of ways. I enjoyed this story a lo ...more
Linc and Jace
A hard topic to cover. Self harming and depression, and just to make things more difficult bipolar.
That was the struggle that Linc went through most of his adult.
Linc and Jace met when they were kids and when they teenagers they fell in love and promised to be each other's forever.
Linc got a record deal left Jace . Forward ten years and by faith they meet again.
Feelings never left but learning to trust and dealing with mental issues. This was so well written showing the triggers and ...more
This is a wonderful book about second chances and best friends as lovers, all the while tastefully and realistically including the topic of mental illness. Lincoln left his best friend and love of his life Jace behind when he was in his late teens and being signed by a record label. 10 years later he is very successful, deeply troubled and full of regrets about the man he left behind, who is still the love of his life.
Jace has tried to move on but hasn’t been able to find closures; he does not ...more
I truly enjoyed the story, it had a lot of feels. I loved both Lincoln and Jace. I love a second chance romance. My only complaint was I wish there had been a fight between them before getting back together. I think in needed to get ugly before it could get better. I think the author handle the mental illness with grace and they had a solid HFN finish. I hope we get an amazing epilogue for them all on the last book of the series!!
4 – 4.5 Stars
This was not an easy read but it was a very good one, raw and emotional and one heck of a second chance story! I really enjoyed this book and am already looking forward to more of this series!
Jace and Lincoln fell in love when they were teenagers, promised to be together forever but then Lincoln’s band signed a record deal and he was gone. He had his reasons back then but has lived everyday regretting that choice. Have had learned to hate Lincoln for what he did, he’s tried to move ...more
