    3.5 Liked it but didn't love it,like I expected... One ABSOLUTE positive was Theo...I love a character that is sexy and hot but has a kind of innocence about them, More pics, (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] There's no denying both men had a...

    Everyone else LOVES this book, but I'm getting flashbacks to when I read In the Middle of Somewhere and was the only hater of the bunch. Though I loved The Remaking of Corbin Wale, I'm thinking maybe Roan Parrish isn't for me. Riven was far from terrible, but I just... don't get it...

    5 Stars! I think this has to be my favorite story by this author so far. Theo was the type of character I desperately wanted to reach through the pages so I could hug him and Caleb garnered the same reaction out of me. One of my favorite couples I've read about this year hands ...

    READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG When you open a book and you connect to the characters instantly and they touch you deeply, it's already a good sign. If the story speaks to you then you are on a good way to your next favorite. Roan Parrish is a new-to-me author and this is wh...

    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. ...

    4 STARS He was lust and heat and power and I fucking loved it. Have you ever read a book for the cover alone? What? Now don't look at me like that. Have you seen this cover? There's just something about it that's utterly magnetic. It lures you in. And then you read the blurb, a...

    This book blew me away. It moved me. It made me hurt. There was so much feeling in the writing. I couldn't stop reading. I loved Theo and Caleb so so much. One of my favorite books of the year. ARCH kindly provided by the publisher, via NetGalley, for an ho...

    I can't get this book out of my head. It was- breathtaking soulful magical poetic passionate I don't think I can write a coherent review for it. Riven is one you have to experience. It's about two men going on a journey together; it's about healing, trust, new be...

    Riven took my expectations of a rock star romance and completely obliterated them. This is unlike anything I thought it was going to be. I anticipated it being good because I have yet to be disappointed by a Roan Parrish novel, but I didn't realize how invested I would be in these char...

    The reluctant rockstar who didn't want to be...... Theo Decker had no idea when he joined Riven a few years ago just how big they would become. And, as the lead singer, he is the most recognized. He's the one who gets mobbed everywhere. He's the one that the paparazzi chase. Mus...

    This was a mixed bag. It started poorly for me because the purple prose was out in full force. This author loves her words and she loves to use all of them at the same time. What could be said in 4 words, she uses 20. It kept pulling me out of the story and by 15% I was thinking abou...

    5 Stars This is my first book written solely by Roan Parrish, and I was absolutely blown away! It was one of those books that pulls you into another world, the very best kind of escape. I am not a fan of overly angst filled books and I sometimes miss out on really great stories, l...

    Wow, this was so much better and so much more than I thought it was going to be. I?m so sad it?s over. I might cry. I seriously can?t believe this has so few reviews, it?s officially my new favorite M/M. Ever. Honestly, it's one of my top romances. Theo and Caleb stole my heart...

    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...

    4.5 stars This is a sweet and natural love story between two intense and troubled men. Two musicians who know first hand that everything comes with a price. Because that?s what happens to Caleb and his additions and also the toll for Theo to pay with his aversion to fame. Very dif...

    One of the rare occasions where I have zero niggles. I found everything about this book perfect. I think it's the best Roan Parrish to date. 5 stars. ...

    Riven by Roan Parrish was an emotional story about two musicians, Theo and Caleb, trying to find their happiness. The writing was phenomenal and pulled you into the story making you feel every emotion the M/C were going through. Battling inner demons and struggling to be honest with th...

    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. ***ARC courtesy of publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for a review*** ***********************...

    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 her...

    Sometimes I read a book, and it?s so good that it renews my love for reading for the millionth time and I can?t wait to grab the next one on my list. And sometimes I read a book that just makes me want to quit reading, because what could possibly follow it? Riven was the latter....

    5 Stars I finished this a few days ago and I'm still not any closer to writing a coherent review today than I was then...but I'm gonna give it a go. Because ARC. Rock Star MCs don't typically appeal to me...and I don't usually like that trope or the stories that seem to go with i...

    A reluctant rockstar who rose to fame to prove something to the family that treated him as a burden, a post-rehab musician so afraid to fall back into addiction that he polices his whole life to the detriment of living, music and wonder and hope and learning to love yourself.. That'...

    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. Darn. So much exquisite depth, so much real feeling, so much thoughtful exploration ...

    we're talking EMO MAN OF MY DREAMS with tats and flippy black hair we're talking GAY ROMANCE we're talking GAY CUDDLING AND AFFECTION ok this was so much fun. we've got a sexy gay rockstar, theo, who is straight out of my 13 yr old myspace dreams. longish black hair, tattoos, ey...

    I'm struggling a little with the rating and review of this book. Maybe I can break it down into what I loved, liked, and didn't. Loved Both MCs are songwriters and musicians. I loved how the story focused on their talent and calling. All of the secondary characters were also musici...

    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 t...

    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, ...

    Everyone else LOVES this book, but I'm getting flashbacks to when I read In the Middle of Somewhere and was the only hater of the bunch. Though I loved The Remaking of Corbin Wale, I'm thinking maybe Roan Parrish isn't for me. Riven was far from terrible, but I just... don't get it...

    5 Stars! I think this has to be my favorite story by this author so far. Theo was the type of character I desperately wanted to reach through the pages so I could hug him and Caleb garnered the same reaction out of me. One of my favorite couples I've read about this year hands ...

    READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG When you open a book and you connect to the characters instantly and they touch you deeply, it's already a good sign. If the story speaks to you then you are on a good way to your next favorite. Roan Parrish is a new-to-me author and this is wh...

    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. ...

    4 STARS He was lust and heat and power and I fucking loved it. Have you ever read a book for the cover alone? What? Now don't look at me like that. Have you seen this cover? There's just something about it that's utterly magnetic. It lures you in. And then you read the blurb, a...

    This book blew me away. It moved me. It made me hurt. There was so much feeling in the writing. I couldn't stop reading. I loved Theo and Caleb so so much. One of my favorite books of the year. ARCH kindly provided by the publisher, via NetGalley, for an ho...

    I can't get this book out of my head. It was- breathtaking soulful magical poetic passionate I don't think I can write a coherent review for it. Riven is one you have to experience. It's about two men going on a journey together; it's about healing, trust, new be...

    Riven took my expectations of a rock star romance and completely obliterated them. This is unlike anything I thought it was going to be. I anticipated it being good because I have yet to be disappointed by a Roan Parrish novel, but I didn't realize how invested I would be in these char...

    The reluctant rockstar who didn't want to be...... Theo Decker had no idea when he joined Riven a few years ago just how big they would become. And, as the lead singer, he is the most recognized. He's the one who gets mobbed everywhere. He's the one that the paparazzi chase. Mus...

    This was a mixed bag. It started poorly for me because the purple prose was out in full force. This author loves her words and she loves to use all of them at the same time. What could be said in 4 words, she uses 20. It kept pulling me out of the story and by 15% I was thinking abou...

    5 Stars This is my first book written solely by Roan Parrish, and I was absolutely blown away! It was one of those books that pulls you into another world, the very best kind of escape. I am not a fan of overly angst filled books and I sometimes miss out on really great stories, l...

    Wow, this was so much better and so much more than I thought it was going to be. I?m so sad it?s over. I might cry. I seriously can?t believe this has so few reviews, it?s officially my new favorite M/M. Ever. Honestly, it's one of my top romances. Theo and Caleb stole my heart...

    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...

    4.5 stars This is a sweet and natural love story between two intense and troubled men. Two musicians who know first hand that everything comes with a price. Because that?s what happens to Caleb and his additions and also the toll for Theo to pay with his aversion to fame. Very dif...

    One of the rare occasions where I have zero niggles. I found everything about this book perfect. I think it's the best Roan Parrish to date. 5 stars. ...

    Riven by Roan Parrish was an emotional story about two musicians, Theo and Caleb, trying to find their happiness. The writing was phenomenal and pulled you into the story making you feel every emotion the M/C were going through. Battling inner demons and struggling to be honest with th...

    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. ***ARC courtesy of publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for a review*** ***********************...

    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 her...

    Sometimes I read a book, and it?s so good that it renews my love for reading for the millionth time and I can?t wait to grab the next one on my list. And sometimes I read a book that just makes me want to quit reading, because what could possibly follow it? Riven was the latter....

    5 Stars I finished this a few days ago and I'm still not any closer to writing a coherent review today than I was then...but I'm gonna give it a go. Because ARC. Rock Star MCs don't typically appeal to me...and I don't usually like that trope or the stories that seem to go with i...

    A reluctant rockstar who rose to fame to prove something to the family that treated him as a burden, a post-rehab musician so afraid to fall back into addiction that he polices his whole life to the detriment of living, music and wonder and hope and learning to love yourself.. That'...

    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. Darn. So much exquisite depth, so much real feeling, so much thoughtful exploration ...

    we're talking EMO MAN OF MY DREAMS with tats and flippy black hair we're talking GAY ROMANCE we're talking GAY CUDDLING AND AFFECTION ok this was so much fun. we've got a sexy gay rockstar, theo, who is straight out of my 13 yr old myspace dreams. longish black hair, tattoos, ey...

    I'm struggling a little with the rating and review of this book. Maybe I can break it down into what I loved, liked, and didn't. Loved Both MCs are songwriters and musicians. I loved how the story focused on their talent and calling. All of the secondary characters were also musici...

    Wow, this was so much better and so much more than I thought it was going to be. I?m so sad it?s over. I might cry. I seriously can?t believe this has so few reviews, it?s officially my new favorite M/M. Ever. Honestly, it's one of my top romances. Theo and Caleb stole my heart...

    Riven by Roan Parrish was an emotional story about two musicians, Theo and Caleb, trying to find their happiness. The writing was phenomenal and pulled you into the story making you feel every emotion the M/C were going through. Battling inner demons and struggling to be honest with th...

    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 t...

    5 Stars I finished this a few days ago and I'm still not any closer to writing a coherent review today than I was then...but I'm gonna give it a go. Because ARC. Rock Star MCs don't typically appeal to me...and I don't usually like that trope or the stories that seem to go with i...

    A reluctant rockstar who rose to fame to prove something to the family that treated him as a burden, a post-rehab musician so afraid to fall back into addiction that he polices his whole life to the detriment of living, music and wonder and hope and learning to love yourself.. That'...

    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. Darn. So much exquisite depth, so much real feeling, so much thoughtful exploration ...

    3.5 Liked it but didn't love it,like I expected... One ABSOLUTE positive was Theo...I love a character that is sexy and hot but has a kind of innocence about them, More pics, (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] There's no denying both men had a...

    Everyone else LOVES this book, but I'm getting flashbacks to when I read In the Middle of Somewhere and was the only hater of the bunch. Though I loved The Remaking of Corbin Wale, I'm thinking maybe Roan Parrish isn't for me. Riven was far from terrible, but I just... don't get it...

    5 Stars! I think this has to be my favorite story by this author so far. Theo was the type of character I desperately wanted to reach through the pages so I could hug him and Caleb garnered the same reaction out of me. One of my favorite couples I've read about this year hands ...

    M/MMM AN ADDICTING BAD BOY ROCKER! Stand-alone. LIVE! | AMZ US | AMZ UK | B&N | KOBO | iBOOKS | Blurb: Theo Decker might be the lead singer of Riven, but he hates being a rock star. The paparazzi, the endless tours, being recognized everywhere he goes?it all makes him ...

    READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG When you open a book and you connect to the characters instantly and they touch you deeply, it's already a good sign. If the story speaks to you then you are on a good way to your next favorite. Roan Parrish is a new-to-me author and this is wh...

    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. ...

    4 STARS He was lust and heat and power and I fucking loved it. Have you ever read a book for the cover alone? What? Now don't look at me like that. Have you seen this cover? There's just something about it that's utterly magnetic. It lures you in. And then you read the blurb, a...

    This book blew me away. It moved me. It made me hurt. There was so much feeling in the writing. I couldn't stop reading. I loved Theo and Caleb so so much. One of my favorite books of the year. ARCH kindly provided by the publisher, via NetGalley, for an ho...

    I can't get this book out of my head. It was- breathtaking soulful magical poetic passionate I don't think I can write a coherent review for it. Riven is one you have to experience. It's about two men going on a journey together; it's about healing, trust, new be...

    Riven took my expectations of a rock star romance and completely obliterated them. This is unlike anything I thought it was going to be. I anticipated it being good because I have yet to be disappointed by a Roan Parrish novel, but I didn't realize how invested I would be in these char...

    The reluctant rockstar who didn't want to be...... Theo Decker had no idea when he joined Riven a few years ago just how big they would become. And, as the lead singer, he is the most recognized. He's the one who gets mobbed everywhere. He's the one that the paparazzi chase. Mus...

    This was a mixed bag. It started poorly for me because the purple prose was out in full force. This author loves her words and she loves to use all of them at the same time. What could be said in 4 words, she uses 20. It kept pulling me out of the story and by 15% I was thinking abou...

    5 Stars This is my first book written solely by Roan Parrish, and I was absolutely blown away! It was one of those books that pulls you into another world, the very best kind of escape. I am not a fan of overly angst filled books and I sometimes miss out on really great stories, l...

    Wow, this was so much better and so much more than I thought it was going to be. I?m so sad it?s over. I might cry. I seriously can?t believe this has so few reviews, it?s officially my new favorite M/M. Ever. Honestly, it's one of my top romances. Theo and Caleb stole my heart...

    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...

    4.5 stars This is a sweet and natural love story between two intense and troubled men. Two musicians who know first hand that everything comes with a price. Because that?s what happens to Caleb and his additions and also the toll for Theo to pay with his aversion to fame. Very dif...

    One of the rare occasions where I have zero niggles. I found everything about this book perfect. I think it's the best Roan Parrish to date. 5 stars. ...

    Riven by Roan Parrish was an emotional story about two musicians, Theo and Caleb, trying to find their happiness. The writing was phenomenal and pulled you into the story making you feel every emotion the M/C were going through. Battling inner demons and struggling to be honest with th...

    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. ***ARC courtesy of publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for a review*** ***********************...
