Diminished (Winter’s Wrath, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Diminished by Bianca Sommerland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

When Shiori Ayase comes across a casting call to dance on stage for Winter’s Wrath with a model she idolizes, she jumps on the chance. She needs this opportunity to break free from the control of her step-father, and she made her sister a promise on her deathbed. One that involves learning if the Trousseau brothers are the type of men that can be trusted. What better way to find out than by spending a few weeks with them on the road?

Brave Trousseau has to face the damage he’s done to the band in his efforts to push his younger brother away. But then his goddess, a young woman with a sharp wit and moves that drive him crazy, joins the band on tour to take over the sexy performance meant to entice the crowd, Brave ends up more than motivated to be on his best behavior.

Unfortunately, he’s not the only one enchanted with the girl. Malakai Noble, the band’s bassist, has always been a strong, steady presence at the core of Winter’s Wrath, but he’s now become Brave’s most bitter rival. How can Brave show he’s changed with Malakai’s constant reminders of every mistake he’s made? With the band on the line, and Shiori stealing her way into his heart, maybe there’s only one way to prove he’s the better man. And that’s by letting her go.


Touring with a band sounds like quite a fun life.

This second book in the Winter’s Wrath series centers around Lead singer Brave. Brave was very self destructive in the first book and was determined to push his brother and the rest of the band away, including bass guitarist Malikai who he used to be friends with.

A new girl, Shiori, is hired as a dancer and Brave is attracted to her from the start. Malikai also seems to be drawn to her and tensions between Malikai and Brave are heightened. Did I mention that everyone in the band is also bisexual?

The book is steamy, but just about everyone in the band is dealing with some sort of post traumatic stress issue or something from their past. Luckily one of the roadies is a former vet and psychologist. Maybe too many coincidences to be realistic but a pretty good read anyway.
