Rhythm & Blue by S.L. Jennings is Live. Check out my Review!


I fell in love with a boy whose laughter was the soundtrack of my heart. And I played it on repeat until life’s streetlights flickered on and stole him away.

Riot Blu.
Top 40 f*ckboi.
Paparazzi player.
Trashy reality TV trainwreck.

But once upon a time, he was the boy next door.

Once upon a time, he was every note in every song on every mixtape he had ever made for me.

Now he’s back. A lot more arrogant. A little more tortured. And more gorgeous than any memory I held dear could do justice.

I know no good can come from being anywhere near him.
But Seattle is only so big, and if I’m going to get the exclusive of my career, I have to swallow my pride, take that dreaded walk down memory lane and agree to his terms.

Move in with him.
Immerse myself in his life—the life he left me to build.
And try not to fall back in love with the man who ripped my world in two.

Darra's Review:

Read this book in one day and Loved it! Despite all Musicians are known for being manwho$es, I love them. Since is written by S.L. Jennings, I couldn’t pass it up. Each character is unique. From Hate, to love, to despair, to understanding. Rhythm and Blue pulled every string in my heart.

Rox begins the story with her blinding hatred for Riot. Although she grew up with him, they went their separate ways. A decade later, she is pushed to meet with him. When she finally see’s him, you could tell Blu Riot was enamored with her. Her plan was to get this job completed quickly to continue with her life that did not include him. That was derailed almost immediately.

Riot, how do I begin? He is amazing and complex. The life of a well know musician is hard and cliché. You find out hat his plans are and it is all about Rox. However, his plans do not go his way. I loved him and loathed him at times. As if he was real. He played with my emotions and had a few moments of tearing up.

I was a big ball of stress and was waiting for the HEA. And freaking a little at the end because Poppy would never go away. Talking about a character I wanted to physically slap her in face! Ugh. Despite that skinny, horrible character, the story ended the way it was meant to.

BTW-I need more of Kaz. He is wonderful and he needs his own book. Too good of a guy to leave out. S.L.-I am talking to you. Next on your writing list.

I rate the book a 4.7 out of 5. It has been at least a year that I read from beginning to end in one day. This book deserved that time.

***To make this a uniquely immersive reading experience, the RHYTHM & BLU ebook will contain in-story links to listen to songs that tell Rox & Riot's story while you read!***
