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.
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 sixty-two more to go.
LILAC is a contemporary rockstar romance, reverse harem, and complete standalone.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Two things...one. I've never read B.B. Reid before. Two. I've never read a reverse harem book. Lilac had much more depth than I thought it would. Yes, it got dirty but there was more emotional content than I was expecting. I will say that this got off to a bit of a slow start but there was a lot of building that needed to be done. And it wasn't long before things started to pick up for Braxton, Loren, Jericho and Houston.
There were a lot of strong personalities in this book. Legit everyone was alpha in their own way. Houston was the outspoken leader. Loren was the brooder. Jericho was the seemingly sweet one. And Braxton- she was the spitfire that somehow managed to get to all of them. She demanded respect and she got it. And so much more.
I was constantly waiting for the next bombshell to drop. And there were a lot of them. Lilac was a tangled web of secrets, guilt, bitterness, half truths, anger and resentment. And caught in the middle of it all was Braxton with her own struggles to navigate. But as things unraveled for them, they also clicked. They found what they never knew they were missing in each other. Acceptance. Freedom. Love.
4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
Give me any book by B.B. Reid and I will devour that sucker in one sitting, no matter how long the pages are.
When I read the synopsis to Lilac and saw that it was going to be a reverse harem, I knew I had to read it, knowing that this was her first book in this trope. Anyone who gives me love triangles, cheating and reverse harem are definitely on my top of the list to read!
We get Braxton a girl with some vocal chords who joined the band and shocking the guys to see that she wasn't a guy but a girl. She might have a boy's name but she is definitely all woman. These boys will give her hell as much as they can because they aren't happy with the fact that their new band mate is a girl and not a guy.
But then things heat up with all of them and you get everything that you expect out of a reverse harem book!
Lilac is definitely a slow burn at the beginning but once it picks up -- hot damn does it pick up!
B.B. Reid definitely shook me with Lilac! A total recommendation, one click and read it.
