Long before the world bowed down to the band Whispered Words, they bowed down to me.
I was a simple girl in a small town, working two jobs and juggling college full-time—all in the name of a better future.
Until them...Kieran. Cal. Ash. Rad.
They marched into my world like a hurricane, infiltrating every aspect of my life and taking control until they owned every inch of me.
I became their obsession.
Their toy to use.
And I ate up every second of it.
Looking back, I should have run in the opposite direction the moment they mentioned my family name. West. I should have known they were only chasing me for my father, Corbin West's multi-million-dollar music legacy.
But I didn't. I stayed. I loved. And then I was wrecked.
Every fortified wall I erected, they beat down until I was left in shambles, and then they shattered me to pieces.
Music. Lies. Love. Betrayal. S*x. Money. Rock and roll. It all amounted to a whirlwind romance full of deceptive destruction and betrayal.
My name is River West, and this is the story of how Whispered Words loved me, used me, and tore my heart in two, leaving me when I needed them most.*Bitter Notes is book 1 of 2 and will end in a HEA.
*Bitter Notes is a full-length mature, contemporary, new adult romance. Full of love, spice, rock and roll, and betrayal. This book is meant for a mature audience and is recommended for 18+.
*Bitter Notes is a whychoose novel, meaning the FMC has more than one love interest. FMMMM
4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
Oh my gosh, for as much as this poor girl has gone through in her 19 years ... I give her props for being the way she is, for what she's gone through and for what she is going through. How guarded she's been, for her toughness and her sassiness. She might mess around with guys but it took her a while to let someone in, just so he could end things with her when she was falling for him because he preferred to make his daddy happy. It's not her fault that she's from the wrong side of the tracks, but she is a hard working girl, trying to make ends meet, helping her mother in supporting themselves and still trying to get her degree to be a music manager. She wants to follow in her father's footsteps even though he discarded her and her mother like they were meant nothing.
But when she comes across a band that is the up and coming hot band in their little home town, she does the impossible to help them enter the battle of the bands and helps them achieve the goal they need to get to California and become famous. These four guys also have fallen head over heels for her and plan on taking her with them, but one of them doesn't think that's a good idea and thinks that maybe leaving her behind might be the best bet or she could bring them down.
So what will it be, will she end up with them in their famous world or will she be left behind -- discarded, broken and forgotten?
The twists and turns it left us with at the end certainly left us with more questions than answers and I can't wait to find out. The schmexy scenes were definitely hot and can't wait to see if there will be more with this RH duet.
