Lilac Blog Tour Excerpt + Review


One world tour. Three rock gods. Their gutsy new guitarist who talks back. Rules are Bound to be broken.

Lilac by B.B. Reid is now live!

From bestselling author B.B. Reid comes an unconventional romance and complete standalone.

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 sixty-two more to go.

LILAC is a contemporary rockstar romance, reverse harem, and complete standalone.

“Be my girlfriend, Braxton Fawn.”

My head knew what to say. My heart was in my throat. I knew it was coming, and somehow, I was still unprepared. I wanted to say yes. I felt it on my tongue, overwhelmed by green apples. All I had to do was shut my mind away, and I’d be his. There was only one problem.

He was asking too much.

I couldn’t pretend his friends weren’t chasing me too.

I wanted them all equally, but I craved them for different reasons. Houston challenged me, Loren worshiped me, and Rich made me feel like I was worthy of redemption.

I didn’t want to give that up.

This tour would end, but the wreckage they will have left of my heart would be permanent. There was only one way I could survive. One way no one got hurt, and…it was impossible. Almost as hopeless as choosing.

Spoiler-Free Review:

I received an ARC for an honest review

I gave this book 5 stars. It had me hooked from the beginning. There was no point in this book where I didn’t feel like continuing on. Even when things were slow in this book, they were still so full of secrecy. There were four main characters and so much we didn’t know about each of them.

This book is centred around three rockstars, Houston, Loren, and Jericho, and the beginning of their relationship with their new guitarist Braxton. This book was never-ending entertainment. With such a taboo storyline, it couldn’t be dull unless B. B. Reid really tried. This book was endlessly fun and extremely sexy. It would be kind of hard not to be. Onto the characters.

I thought of Braxton as such a badass Heroine. She was such an awesome character, I would read more books about her. She was so complex and was dealing with so much drama. There was drama with her family, there were internal struggles with herself, there was drama concerning her taboo relationship with these men. It’s hard not getting into too much detail because the details of this book beg to be discussed. I will refrain, but you should definitely read this for yourselves to find out.

Now onto the love interests. I’m gonna start with Loren because I think he might be my favourite. I can’t really say for sure, but I did really like him. He was the one who pissed me off the most, but he was also the one who I think was the most fun out of the three. He was the entertainment of the book. Very bold personality. He did some things that made me angry but in the end, I couldn’t really hold it against him.

Now onto Houston, he was the angry broody one full of mystery. He’s a stereotypical bad boy and if I had read this even three years ago, he probably would have been my favourite. I’ve gotten to a point where the broodiness doesn’t really do as much for me as it used to. I will take funny and ridiculous over broody any day. Not to say I didn’t like Houston. I also do think he has a decent reason to be the broody one.

Finally on to Jericho. He had the most to hide and definitely had the best facade. You would never believe this guy would hide anything and I think that’s why he kind of scares me the most. He’s not like a “nice guy” he’s actually genuinely a nice guy but the guy has a closet full of secrets. I can’t really say much more without actually getting into the details of his storyline. 

This book covered a lot of fucked up things. Honestly, so many things had me taken aback. These are obviously spoilers but honestly, be prepared for some not so savoury things happening. There are some really disturbing things that happen to characters. There is never anything explicit, but I feel like I should give a trigger warning in case you are very sensitive to sexually traumatic things. I would like to reiterate that there is never anything explicit, but things are mentioned. 

Overall, this book was really sexy and fun to read. I would highly recommend it. If you’ve loved this author's works in the past and are interested in reading something a bit more risqué then definitely give this one a try.
