Release Blitz and Review: Rock Revenge by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott


A stranger with my face. My voice. My name.

Simon Kagan is on tour overseas with his band Oblivion when he sees his mirror image singing on a TV talent competition. 

A man who’s trying to capitalize on his fame and everything he’s built.

Not if Simon has anything to say about it. But first, he has to find the bastard…

Too many secrets.

Margo Kagan is hiding one of her own. And the timing couldn’t be worse, since no one knows why Simon’s supposed brother picked now to show up.

Family reunion? Or something far more sinister…

A debt repaid.

Ian Kagan is sick of living in the shadows. The dirty secret. The time has come for him to take his place in the limelight, and he’ll do whatever it takes to end up where he rightfully belongs. Stardom was never part of the unholy agreement he made, but he won’t back down now.

No matter who gets hurt.

The trilogy occurs in the Oblivion world though it can be read on its own. Rock Revenge 1 is a 38K novella with a cliffhanger.

This is book 1 of the Rock Revenge trilogy.  Please note, that you will want to read Cari Quinn’s and Taryn Elliott’s Lost In Oblivion series, especially Book 3 “Destroyed” as Rock Revenge does feature the characters Simon and Margo.

As the blurb describes, Simon is shocked to discover while watching a reality talent show that he “supposedly” has a brother who looks like him and sounds just like him and he is a little peeved that his brother is trying to ride on his coattails of fame.  Ian knew about Simon and has been jealous.  Perhaps there is more about Ian than just wanting to be a super star like Simon?  

This first part of the book alternates between Margo’s and Simon’s POV.  I really enjoyed seeing more of Margo and Simon as well as a bit of Nick and Lila.  Margo’s and Simon’s relationship is wonderfully intense and some of the scenes between them are quite steamy.  Of course the antics between Nick and Simon are still hilarious.

The second part of the book is told from Ian’s POV.  Ian is an anti-hero and who doesn’t love a good angsty, damaged male character?  He’s jaded, angry, and cocky and I felt like maybe I should dislike him, but really couldn’t.  His story intrigues me.  His character doesn’t really get developed towards the last 1/3 of the book.  We get a little bit of his background and a little bit of his motivation.  There is clearly more at play than just being jealous and wanting to be a star and I am dying to know the details!

I loved this book.  This may be one of my favorites by these authors, of course I say that about all their books!  Rock Revenge moves at a good pace, keeping me entertained the entire time.  I liked all the characters, especially chapters from each of their POVs.  This book does end in a cliffhanger is a part of a trilogy.  I am really looking forward to Book 2

I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

About Cari Quinn:

USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn (who is also half of bestselling author Taryn Quinn) grew up wanting to be a singer more than anything else. When she realized she probably wouldn’t be hired as the opening act for the Foo Fighters, she stopped singing and started writing. Now she happily writes about rock stars, MMA fighters, suited heroes, bodyguards and everything in between. And she blasts her music as loud as the neighbors can stand, because hey, she’ll always be a rock star in her own head.

About Taryn Elliott:

I'm USA Today Bestselling author Taryn Elliott. I'm a music freak who loves everything about telling stories. I have way too many ideas rattling around in my head, but music almost always ends up in the story somehow. I'm very lucky to have a job that allows me to slip into the shoes of musicians, actors, business women, tycoons, bodyguards, chefs, bakers, carpenters, inventors, bartenders, wine makers, artists, and so many more characters to come. Talk about living the dream.
Oh, and I write 85% of this with my bestie and writing partner, Cari Quinn. We also write super sexy paranormal romance and erotic romance under Taryn Quinn.
Enough about me...go read about one of my hot guys. They're far more interesting. ;)
