    Family isn't always determined by bloodI've been looking forward to Ben's story ever since I witnessed his reaction the first time she stepped on his tour bus The chemistry between them was so strong I felt it too I kinda had a crush on her myself when she let her sass show I knew that Xan was gonna have some competition keeping the band family entertainedAnd speaking of entertainment I have to give a shout out for Spencer He's one of my favorite characters He doesn't have a big part in this story but he is part of the entourage and he always makes me laugh You just can't help getting attached to this crazy crew they are an eual opportunity famiglia Their witty banter is very amusing but it's their big hearts that make them so special They will pull out all the stops to support each other And when it comes to protection you most definitely would want to have them on your sideI really enjoyed getting to know BB Her past was very intriguing and kept me guessing about possible surprises that I kept anticipating She was easy to love and I wasn't surprised when it wasn't just Ben that fell for her I found myself worrying about her right along with everyone else I bit my nails to nubs waiting anxiously for all the stars to align and for everything that needed to happen to happen I was giving my usual advice to the characters who never seem to listen to me Of course when they occasionally do I take all the credit when things work outI'm looking forward to reading about my favorite couple in the next book Which couple is that Well that would be the parents to be I was disappointed I didn't get to peek at the ultrasound I'm really hoping that the sexy rockstar has a whole litter of girls to keep him humble and me entertained

    Nicole is joining the Falling Down tour as she is the new Blush Baby At 18 she is in remission leukemia She has gone through so much from a young age When she walked on that bus she knew Ben was it for her but stubborn he is Like I always do Because no matter how hard I push he won’t give ‘us’ a chance Ben Kingston has set his eyes on Coley Nicole from the very moment he met her but he is afraid because of the age difference She has a lot of living to do before she settles down and I know if I get my hands on her I’m going to want foreverHe really did step it up and became this amazing man for her Loved it “Last chance Nicole Do you want this and when I say ‘this’ I mean you and me forever Once I have you there’s no going back not for either of us” I’m loving the mix of mafia and rock star craziness All kinds of things happening and left hanging at the end There is a traitor aboard and JesseBen’s sister is kidnapped Lucy faints and she’s getting ready to give birth to the Kingston litter triplets Jumping to the next one

    ARC gifted by author in exchange for an honest review 4 Stars FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED Don't you know that family isn't always blood Family is where you make it Ballad is the fifth book in the Rockstar Series by Anne Mercier and is COMPLETELY different to its predecessors Jesse and Lucy's books are light and fluffy Cage and Sera's book was intense and darker and well Xan 'MY' Man watch out ladies I claimed him a long time back Back Off provides the right amount laughter and madness Ben and Nicole's book is emotionalWe met Ben in the first book and in case you haven't read the series he is Jesse's brother Following him throughout we knew the kind of character Ben was I think I need to rephrase that We thought we knew who Ben was Anne portrayed him as a fun character who give as much as he could take I always thought that the two brothers couldn't be further apart in their nature Well WRONG Thanks Anne for never doing what is expected Ben is like Jesse than I ever thought he could be In his emotions and the way he feels for Nicole Ben is on the same level as Jesse if not Ben would do anything for her Even keep himself away from her as to not hurt her Nicole or Coley is the 'Blush Baby' and definitely not what I had expected her to be She is blunt uick sometimes a little bitchy and sassy as hell There we times when I just wanted to slap the hell out of her But just because I wanted to do that doesn't mean that she wasn't easy to love Of course that happened for me when I almost at the ending There was a constant tension throughout the book concerning Nicole which left me turning the pages at a lightening to speed to know if everything was gonna be fine Things turned out be fine Actually they are turned to be fantastically great Oh you thought Let's me be clear NO NO things were not fineThings were an absolute messThings just couldn't stopThings just couldn't stop being just that THINGSOh no no no no no no HELL NO Because Anne gave the mother of all twists which resulted in me throwing a tantrum like a two year old Over all I liked the book and the constant twist and a few heart stopping moments that held my interest till the end

    Just love this series This made me laugh made me sad made me anxious and happy all at the same timeDon't know how I first came across Anne Mercier maybe it was while looking for rockstar reads and new releases but I did and so glad I did too this series is a breath of fresh airYou can so visually picture all the characters on the tour bus having a laugh and the banter between these guys is brilliantThis is Nicole and Ben story it's heartwarming and for a while there I thought it was going to be a love triangle but it wasn't What it was was a moving story and nearly brought tears to my eyes it's a lot of things including hotuntil your smile it was darknessuntil you it was lonelinessuntil your touch I felt nothinguntil your love my life was so fucking empty NicoleAfter reading about Lucian I would love to read of his story and what was going on in his head I liked himI can't say this can be read as a standalone there's multiple povs and history and anyone delving in at this point would get confused you definitely have to start at the beginning which I loved so much and highly recommendReally looking forward to the next one I miss these guys it's so mixed with the rockstar lifestyle mafia madness and crazyness I'm enjoying the journeyARC Gratefullyreceived for honest review YOU ROCK ANNE ;

    I just simply cannot get enough of this series Anne Mercier scored a hit yet AGAIN with BalladAll I'm going to say isBen Kingston After reading Ballad you'll be thinking Jesse who Not really but it's pretty close I knew Ben's story was going to be good but Anne blew good right out of the water And Coleyshe was such a different character than what I expected The real life struggles this young woman experiences make her remarkably strong and brave It's a no brainer why Ben fell hard for her and why he tried everything to stay away from her But if we know anything about true love it's that the harder you fight the harder you fallBehind all the craziness of a rockstar tour the new friendships the not so hidden jealousies and deception is a truly genuine love story The chemistry Ben and Coley share burns from the pages From heartbreak to ecstasy this couple experiences it all The mark of an exceptionally outstanding author is one who makes their readers feel invested and connected to the characters Anne has proved to us over and over that she is indeed one of these authors The multiple POVs ties the story together perfectlyEach book in the Rockstar Series keeps getting better Anne Mercier holds us captivated with Ballad while on her never ending climb up the literary mountain A heart pounding 5 star MUST READreceived ARC in exchange for an honest review

    It feels like i have been waiting AGES for this book when in reality its only been a few months Which in literary terms isnt that long at all really but when youre addicitedobsessedin love with a writer andor series time just has no meaningBallad is Bens bookBen is the guitarist for Falling Down and Nicole is the Blush Baby On paper they shouldnt work but in Interlude you could just feel the attraction and sexual tension between them Ben is a little too hesitant about starting anything with Coley Partly because of the age gap and partly because he KNOWS He knows once hes touched her thats it all bets are off and she will be his End ofBallad might have been Bens book but the other members of BFD make both their presence and voices known Damn you though Anne You make my heart break again for Xander I just know in going to be a complete wreck when his turn comes for a book Cage is just cage but damn that Sera's a badass There were twist and turns in the plotline that i didnt expect or even see coming JUST AMAZINGNow let the countdown to Lullaby and A Very Xander Christmas #2

    4 Sunshine StarsIt's no secret that this series is my guilty pleasure But this book might be the best of them so far While Cage Sera's book was the book I was previously looking forward to the most this book didn't disappoint Mercer's writing has grown uite a bit in the past few books This was by far the easiest and best written to date The plot was a little shaky but I know she will bring it even further in the next book I really didn't know what to expect from Ben and Nicole but I enjoyed it This is a crazy fantastical series that should under no circumstances be taken too seriously Holy Hannah Arc exchanged for an honest review
