(The Love Song of Sawyer Bell Tour Dates #1) [PDF NEW] õ Avon Gale
Ld have liked for Vix to be
able to be bi and for it not to be a constant discussion I think if being to be bi and for it not to be a constant discussion I think if being is treated as the norm it will hopefully just become of the norm I hope I m making sense hereI was pleasantly surprised by how much humor this book had It wasn t laugh out loud humor but witty humor that made me smile all throughout the book Gale even chose to give the sex scenes a little humor And to me it actually worked I don t recall a romance where an author added a little humor to intimate scenes before For me it made the characters seem real And the sex scenes didn t feel like they were there just so a book could have sex scenes they were there to make the characters connect and grow closer which is something I always appreciate I also want to mention I have a little bit of a pet peeve when it comes to reading lyrics of made up songs in books I just don t like it and I find it to be almost uncomfortable The lyrics are almost always super cheesy I must say it was nice that there were no pages filled with fake song lyrics in this book The characters would sing and play there instruments but as a reader you interpret what ind of lyrics The characters would sometimes write down one liners that they wanted to use as a title or song lyric but that was it It was really refreshing for a change Overall I enjoyed this read It didn t blow me away but it was fun going on the road with a semi popular rock band The romance was sweet and Sawyer was a great character The next book in this series has a lead male character so it s not one I m interested in at this time but if Gale tries to write lesfic again I would read it An ARC was given to me for a honest review If you substitute bass player for all violin fiddle player references in this book substitute Julliard for LSU and reduce the angst by about 50% this is the story of my early 20 s No joke And I have to say life on the road in a inda sorta semi famous rock band is pretty much EXACTLY like this SeriouslyI m usually a touch wary to read LGBT novels by straight authors even so when they write not only ff books but also mm and mf but Gale totally pulled this one off It s high on the angstdrama scale but I really loved being able This book is being rereleased under a new publisher it will be available again for purchase 17th June 2019 I still highly recommend it so be sure to check it out when it s available againReview also on my blogTwitterI received an arc from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewIf you re a fan of music and romance The Love Song
Of Sawyer Bell Doesn T Sawyer Bell doesn t in either category Almost the entire book is the tour Vix and Sawyer are on together and it s implemented into the story very well They re both very musical characters and their passion for it brought a lot of personality to them and contributed to their romance Before the events of the book we find out Sawyer and Vix had one chance encounter in high school This is something Vix forgot about but was something Sawyer remembered For Sawyer the encounter lead to her first crushPart of the book is Sawyer realising she s a lesbian and it is done extremely well There was a little denial but also a lot of uncertainty She d had a boyfriend previously but not one she had romantic feelings for When she joins Vix s band she soon realises she s a lesbian due to her feelings for Vix Vix herself is bi and she s very proud of that which was also great to see There was talk about sexism that existed in the music industry Mostly how there s respect for male musicians and how men get away with sleeping with fans while women wouldn t I loved both Vix and Sawyer Sawyer was a little reserved at times but comes into her own She attends Juilliard but is having doubts due to the stress of it Vix is a very strong character and it the type to make sure her voice is heard But she also has some doubts and rarely shows herself to be vulnerable Overall if you like music and romance the book will bring you both with no short supply ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I seem to be in the minority on this one but this did nothing for me I m not usually a fan of stories with young MCs and though this couldn t be categorised as young adult because Vix is 25 and Sawyer 21 the characters read like they were both college age It d usually take me less than a day to read a book this size but I put this down several times so it took a few days to get through it The
Premise Is That Vix Isis that Vix is lead singer of a band she s also bisexual Sawyer is staring the final year of Juilliard at the end of summer and new Vix in high school and sort of harboured a crush on her She joins Vix s band as a fiddle player for the sum.

Or do you choose another path even though you have no idea what lies ahead that way Thedo you choose another path even though you have no idea what lies ahead that way The Song of Sawyer Bell is about choices About taking control of your life and taking a turn you never before considered It s about rediscovering the love you thought was lost forever It s about being willing to take risks Sawyer was at a crossroads and decided to take a chance on herself and her future Victoria Vix Vincent nows what she wants out of life She wants to sing her own songs and she s doing it Her band may not have made it big yet but she loves touring and playing guitar and singing and if that means sleeping in the back of their tour van for months at a time well she s ok with that Vix is driven and confident and unafraid I truly admire that Or maybe she is a little afraid but aren t we allSawyer Bell is a classically trained violinist that has decided to break out her self imposed hell She always wanted to go to Juilliard and she made it But the dream was nothing like the reality of it And after three years at Juilliard Sawyer barely even likes playing any She s completely disenchanted with all of it So instead of touring Europe with a symphony over the summer like everyone expects her to Sawyer decided to audition for an indie band instead Sometimes you ve just got to live a little The Love Song of Sawyer Bell was romantic I was out for a wee Pride brunch over the wknd and while toasting my lady with bubs I looked over her shoulder and saw someone in the corner with what I am certain was Manic Panic purple hair dye and felt like I was having a seizureThis book was ok It did not woo me by any means and I really struggled with parts
Of It One Of Whichit one of which Vix the above mentioned purple haired MC She s bisexual and boy does she ever let you now it I d say half the book talks about it and this tired me out real uick I wanted to Goldilocks the Three Bears know about her other than just her sexuality yet a point was trying to be made here She loves sex with males or females and apparently get a lot of it on the road and makes no apologies Which is fine with me but I found her to be immature and rather stunted emotionally not understanding her motives or humour She smoked like a chimney and really did not have many redeeming ualities that I found attractiveThe other MC violinist turned fiddle player was somewhat interesting but at 21 her story read like a finding myself YA novel She was naive and sweet and hippie like and wore dresses with boots and was uber talented Her sweetness becameagain too much Maybe I was in a low mood when I read this book but nothing drew me in She had a crush on Vix since school which is why she auditioned for this group in the first place I am also really glad I am not nor have I ever been in the amateur band scene Traveling in a van with goat smelling boys and occasionally staying in dive hotels where let s face it where businessmen take hookers and where the frantic MCs often didn t immediately take off the top uilt on the bed made me cringe Note to everyone ALWAYS TAKE OFF THE TOP COVER Staff don t wash that sucker ever Fuck Overall about a 255 Writing itself was good and this was a first for me by this writer but will approach future read with a little trepidation Sometimes it takes a while to find your own music but believe me its so worth it when you do What a adorbfest this book was Likable leads with great chemistry and easy banter Vix and Sawyer s conflicts actually made sense and felt real Another thing that felt realistic and completely adorable were the intimate scenes which was a refreshing change because they are always taken so seriously Here the MCsept making jokes through it all This book made me smile a lot It was the most fun I ve had reading in a while Received this ARC from Netgalley and Riptide Publishing for an honest reviewI ve wanted to read this book since I first saw it June 13 2017 listed as upcoming or w Disclaimer I received this free in return for an honest review from Netgalley my thanks go to them and Riptide Publishing for the chan.

on my ability to review this honestly and criticallyRead for the URR 2017 New Year s Reading Challenge prompt Rockmy ability to review this honestly and criticallyRead for the URR 2017 New Year s Reading Challenge prompt Rock Romance 2910 Unexpectedly fantastic I m very wary of Netgalley books having had some unfortunate experiences with clunky writing and dreadful editing in the past so I started this with the trepidation from past experience in one ear and a Five Star Recommendation From A star recommendation from a friend in the other Thank goodness I listened to the friend instead of past experience It didn t hurt that Avon Gale is an accomplished author with a number of well thought of books to her nameI loved classically trained Sawyer with her cute dresses and cowboy boots she really stood out as the character I could best picture in my mind and as soon as Vix started taking pictures of her legs resting on the dashboard of the van I new that that would be a fantastic album cover I can totally picture a pair of crossed legs lower thigh to cowboy boots resting on the dash as the late afternoon sun comes streaming in the window as a terrific cover also would have been great cover art for this book imhoI found Vix less easy to understand and empathise with especially towards the end When she refused to say anything to Sawyer about her doubts I was screaming at her that this was what was going to ruin the relationship and then look what almost happened But the smoking cigarettes and weed were the scenes that most put me off the book and the individual characters doing the smoking maybe that s why I found myself relating to Sawyer the most because she was the only one who didn t do either I understand that cigarettes a little bit of marijuana and some drinking are things that are going to be included in a rock star romance but the cigarettes and marijuana are just two things that I m never going to be okay with all I ll ever seen them as are death and a gateway drug that will eventually lead to death respectively The sex was uite different from what I ve read before a lot explaining about the mechanics and that there s no right and wrong just what you like or don t than I m used to not at all a bad thing because usually the experienced partner just assumes they now exactly what to do with their new partner and does it perfectly the first time and that s not realistic I especially liked the way Vix rubbished the myths about bisexuality and the fact that just because she could be attracted to either sex didn t mean that she felt like she was missing out on something when she was with one or the other gender It also didn t mean that she couldn t be faithful to whichever gender she was with at the timeI m pretty new to FF romance and not that long ago I read another book featuring an experienced bisexual and an inexperienced lesbian which portrayed the bisexual woman as promiscuous and unable to Socialist Realism keep it in her pants around any hot person she happened to come across She was pretty much a female jock without any sporting connotations who slept with anything and everything even though she had a crush on the lesbian That was my first FF and I loved it I didn tnow anything about bisexuality of either gender or the clich s that have been spread around about their lifestyle and so I was a bit horrified to learn that I had really enjoyed a book that promoted so much incorrect information about bisexuals Really glad to read one that was so full of positive messages and clich destroying Can t wait to read Jax s story next 35 Stars I wasn t blown away by this book but it was a fun weekend read This book is a re release for June under a new publisher According to Gale not much has changed from the original story While I have never read Gale before I have heard of her name since she is pretty big in the MM world I think it s nice to see authors like Alexis Hall KJ Charles and Gale write lesfic so I finally have a chance to try their books I almost always enjoy books about musician or artists I have no musical talent myself and to this day I completely blame my parents I had dreams of being a drummer in a rock band but they would not let me play the drums because it would make too much noise so I was forced to take piano lessons by a slightly scary woman with horrible breath Needless to say I enjoy a book like this where I can live vicariously through the characters The character of Sawyer for me was the star of this book She is a young 21 trying to find her confidence and place in this world and it was fun watching her character grow The other character Vix for me wasn t uite as substantial I think Gale spent time having to defend her bisexuality than actually building up her character I get there is plenty of biphobia out there I just wou. Nce even though Vix tries to remember that Sawyer’s presence is only temporarySawyer’s parents think she’s spending the summer months touring Europe with a chamber ensemble But Sawyer is in dire need of a break from the competitiveness of Juilliard and desperately wants to rediscover her love of music Going on tour with her.
