Audiobook Review: Lilac by B.B. Reid. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lilac by B.B. Reid

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I, Braxton Fawn, am the luckiest girl alive. 

Or so the world keeps telling me.

Every so often, gods walk the earth. This time they came as musicians. When Bound loses its lead guitarist, yours truly is chosen to fill his shoes. From dive bars to the big stage, my instant claim to fame is nothing short of a fairytale. The only problem? 

My new bandmates.

Jaded, gorgeous, and ridiculously talented—they’re determined to turn my dream into a nightmare. It’s no secret I wasn’t their first choice. I wasn’t even their last. The label wants a new image, Bound wants me gone, but I’ve got my own agenda.
To succeed I have to survive a world tour, public scrutiny, and idols turned enemies. But the biggest threat of all isn’t a meticulous frontman, a narcissistic bassist, and a drummer with too many secrets. 

It’s me. 

Somehow, I must resist the temptation of Houston Morrow, Loren James, and Jericho Noble. It seemed easy enough when I boarded their tour bus, but it only took one city for the lines we’d drawn to blur. 

Only ninety-nine more to go.

The heroine: Braxton Fawn – when Calvin Everill, lead guitarist for the mega famous band Bound dies from a drug overdose, the record label wants a guitarist that will improve the image of the band, so Braxton is hired as the new lead guitarist.

The Heroes: Houston Morrow, Loren James, and Jericho Noble – The remaining band members of Bound who had not yet hired a replacement guitarist, and didn’t quite know who they wanted to hire, but they did know who they didn’t want to hire and that was Braxton Fawn.

The Story: The band is unhappy with their record label and management and are just trying to do their best to wait out the final year on their contract until they can be free to do what they want. Braxton is trying to get her foot in the door to the career she has been working so hard at and her fantasy of meeting the guys she has hero worshipped for years dies a quick death when she finds out what jerks they are. They are at each others throats from the start but can’t deny the attraction between each of them.

This book is told in multiple points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Jason Clarke, Teddy Hamilton, J.F. Harding and Jillian Macie who all do a great job. These are some of my favorite male narrators and all have deep masculine and sexy voices. Jillian also does a great job and sounds age appropriate for Brax.

I liked this story about the one girl in a rock band. Brax is a good heroine and I loved the fact that the guys had been friends for years but things have gotten between their friendship and they were at the point where they just tolerated each other, and sometimes not even that. This new situation looks like something that will further tear them apart, especially since all three of them find themselves attracted to Brax.

I have to admit that one thing I hate about rockstar romance is when they recite the words to a song, they never make sense and don’t add anything to the plot, and this book did that more than a few times. It is just a small pet peeve, but there it is. Other than that, I really liked the story and the struggles each of the protagonists were going through.

I loved how each of the guys had their own distinct personality. Houston was dominant and broody, Loren was alternately devoted to Brax and whenever he didn’t get his way, he would act out, and Jericho was nice and gentle yet a demon in the bedroom. They were all so sexy in their own ways.
