    1 thought on “Rise”

    1. “What do you call on when life gets tough?” “Alcohol, denial and fast women.” She smiled. “Seriously.” “I am serious.” Zander passed the cigarette inches under his nose to breathe in the acrid scent of tobacco, then regretfully dropped it in the trash. “What would your answer be?” “Prayer. Conscience. Faith,” she said without a trace of embarrassment.You can also read my review HERE. Two words: Zander Freedman.Cue screaming fangirls, flailing fangirls, fangirls who deserv [...]

    2. I'm moving some of my blog book recs onto , and I couldn't leave out Rise, an amazing book by my friend and awesome author Karina Bliss.It's emotional and intense and I couldn't put it down. Her rock star is, as the blurb says, "manipulative, honest, gifted, charismatic and morally ambiguous" - he's a fascinating character to get to know, right along with his heroine, the biographer he talks into writing his story. I hope you'll check this book out!

    3. This story isn't about a young rock star 'hanging out' with the groupies and the whole sex, drugs and rock -n- roll. Oh no, this is an older rock star, Zander, that's 'hanging out' with the groupies, sex and rock -n- roll but no drugs. A been there, done that and now I'm gonna do it even better rock star. One with a story to tell and a biographer he needs to convince to write his story. Elizabeth is that biographer but she's never (for the most part) done anything like thise's a historical biogr [...]

    4. Rise is currently free. Don't miss this awesome book. link*This review is posted on Way Too Hot Books.*Well, well this was such a pleasant surprise! This is what I call good writing, people!First, I want to thank my friend Iva for recommending me the book. She said that the banter between the MCs reminded her of our favorite Connor and Rose from Kiss the Sky, so of course I wanted to check it out. Besides, who doesn’t love a good flirt-fight? ;)Now, where to begin? Maybe from the thing that I [...]

    5. 5 "Rock star romance with a different take" stars Have you ever came across a rock star romance that isn't filled with insta-lust, sex, booze, groupies, profanity and OTT drama? A hero that doesn't walk with a perpetual hard-on and a heroine who isn't always wet. I think might just found the my favorite rock star in Rise.Zander Freedman, a vet rock star, who is pushing 40, trying to resurrect his band reputation while battling with his ailing health condition. With his tour and endless promo, he [...]

    7. Aging rock star, Zander Freedman, is going back on a highly controversial tour. Part and parcel of this come back is biography. Zander chooses a historical biographer that he admires but also with the thoughts that he can control her with his bad boy wiles.Elizabeth is an acclaimed biographer, when she is offered the chance to write Zander's autobiography she could never imagine they changes that are about to take place in her life. Zander never considered having one woman in his life, but the m [...]

    8. 4.5 starsi loved this book! great storyline with some really fantastic and well written characters. a mature and smartly written take on the rockstar genre while keeping itself quite fun and light hearted but with a few of those delicious moments of drama sprinkled in. would recommend to anyone looking for something with either a rockstar bad boy, a strong independent heroine, a mature aged couple or just an enjoyable read with some great character development.

    9. ARC ReviewOriginally posted at Love Affair with an E-ReaderThere is always a special thrill to discover a new-to-me author whose book makes me stand up and take notice. I signed up for this blog tour because I like to pepper my romance reading with rock –n- roll stories. The personalities, the excesses, the challenges of fame, are a wonderful indulgence that I like to occasionally partake. Rise is that, but so much more. What is the “More” (a.k.a. Things I Love About This Book)The StoryThe [...]

    10. This book has everything I wish for in a contemporary romance: characters who are good at what they do and act like adults, a relationship that develops from mutual respect, fun dialogues, and lovely writing in general.

    11. This has everything: excellent prose, great interesting plot, wonderful and realistic characters including secondary characters, suspense, intrigue, warmth and humour. One of the few contemporary romances which convinced me.Wholeheartedly recommended!

    12. If you like watching a rake reform Rock Star style, you will really adore this book.Karina Bliss is a great write who creates complex characters and engaging plots. The hero, Zander, is not thoughtful. He is driven and single minded. However, he changes and it is as he changes that the heroine falls in love with him. There is the couple that center of the storm of this book with wonderful developing characters surrounding them. The heroine and heroine are full adults with all the baggage and lay [...]

    13. 4.5 StarsI discovered Karina Bliss with What the Librarian Did, loved it, got all her backlist and have read every new book since then so it was a given that I would read Bliss.We first get to know Zander in Librarian and he's a first class, egotistical, selfish jerk. And he didn't really improve much in the next couple of books he appeared in. So I wasn't sure how I would react to him in Bliss and for at least the first half of the book it was not in a positive way and it was kind of tough goin [...]

    14. I liked this one a lot. While Zander had been a villain in the author's previous book, What The Librarian Did, I thought his other appearances in latter stories (notably, A Prior Engagement) rounded out his character better and he really started to intrigue. Make no mistake, he's still a self-absorbed jackass, but I liked how the author slowly began peeling back layers to him as the romance progressed. Also, nice to see an intellectual, adult heroine fall for a rock star hero and not another ret [...]

    15. Rock born from flame. I loved the book from its mood-defining cover to a very satisfying ending. Ever since reading What the Librarian Did I became a fan of the author. Rise is a sequel staring Devin’s older brother Zander, a jaded, selfish, vain 40-year-old rock star at the peak of his band resurrection and second coming. He sings to sold-out concerts, travels around the world. His life on the outside is sex, drugs and rock’n’role. But all of this is overshadowed by his secret- he is losi [...]

    16. I wasn't expecting this book and author to win me over as completely as they have. I'm a fan and even went out to buy the Harlequin "prequel" What the Librarian Did as soon as I finished and no doubt I'll go out and buy Fall as soon as I'm done. The only problem is stopping myself from reading long enough to cook everything for Thanksgiving. Elizabeth was a great character. She didn't fall into any of the clichés that you usually see in romance novels. Tough, incisive, sweet, good-humored, fun. [...]

    17. DNF 30% in and I just couldn't take it anymore. Holy shit! Absolutely, positively BORING! I've read lots of boring books but this one takes boring to a whole new level. BORING! BORING! BORING!

    18. Rating 3.25 starsPersonally I am not a fan of rockstar stories because nothing about the lifestyle appeals to me but I do like this author and Zander is someone I had found interesting in her earlier books. Zander is Zander, arrogant, selfish, morose and a whole other range of emotions. The heroine is not bad too. Overall the book was quite okay for me.

    19. Wow! I just finished an ARC, and my impulse is to read it again immediately to savor every scene. A full review will be posted at The Romance Dish nearer publication date, so for now I'll just say Rise is an extraordinary, unforgettable book. Don't miss it.

    20. Now this was a pleasant surprise. I grabbed Rise when it was a freebie for Kindle and I didn't have high expectations. But this book was very good romance novel.+ Mature, middle-aged characters.+ Classic bad-boy and bookworm plot with a twist+ Naughty rock star with secrets+ Characters with depth and complex personalities+ Hero had a sense of humor I liked+ They don't just jump into bedAs always, there are cliches, but for the points listed above and fun factor I am giving Rise 4 stars.

    21. Rock star romances are all the rage and I love them. I also read them often, and now and again, one will stand out. Rise is one such book. It's not because it's hot or raunchy, or the fact that it's the hottest new/biggest rock star. It's because of the characters and who they are.Elizabeth and Zander are infinitely likable. I was surprised by the fact that I liked Zander. I think that's because I haven't read the previous book so can't judge him on how he used to be. I only know him as this guy [...]

    22. Always suspicious of any book where marrying the rich and famous is the recipe for long term marital success. BUT once you get past that, this is one of the better written of this genre. The character of Elizabeth is compelling and I like the fact that they admitted that the aging rock star, oh hey, had a little cosmetic help to stay that good looking.

    23. A hot, emotional, and sweet romance, Rise was an excellent read. I was wary going into it, hoping it wouldn't be a cliche rockstar romance but it turned out to be a book with realistic emotion and raw romance. I really enjoyed it.Elizabeth was a great heroine. Calm, cool, and collected, there was very little that could ruffle her. Other than the fear of letting herself be vulnerable to someone who would very possibly break her heart. But, in the end, her determination allowed her to overcome eve [...]

    24. What a disappointment!! The only part I cared for was the last 15% or so and it wasn't great. What didn't I like you may ask?1) Too many sub plots and other people that took away from the actual story line.2) The ex girlfriend was mentioned almost one hundred times. I know this is his story but approx a hundred timesOoo! Not cool! 3) He was not just a man-whore, which for me is bad enough, but he was a cheater as well. He can call it an open relationship or whatever he chooses but to me it was c [...]

    25. I'm rather torn about this one. On the one hand, I really loved all the female characters and their interactions. The friendship that develops between Elizabeth, Kayla, Dimity, and Stormie is really great particularly as they are all so incredibly different. I could read an entire series about them hanging out and being awesome together. But this book is a romance and that didn't work for me at all. I just didn't buy it. Zaner is too much of an ass for too much of the book. I know he hit a botto [...]

    26. Reviewed for theereaderjunkie.wordpressI read Beatrix’s review recently and since I’m in the mood for rock stars, I bought this novel. I’ve just finished reading it as I’m writing this review and I’m weighing the possibility of re-reading it in the near future. If you consider that I already have enough books in store for the 3 (ah, make it 4) years to come, that’s saying something ! I’m also afraid that it has relegated my beloved Stage dive series at the second rank of my favorit [...]

    28. This book was fabulously beautiful: wonderful character development, unique story-line, vivid heartbreaking characters, and the writing was so utterly good I'm not even sure what or how-to-idk what? Go-d-ess of the Pen? The hero, Zander had tears come to my eyes for the dilemma he faced both in his career and love life, he was a man made up of clustered and contrasting traits , and I completely loved him! The heroine, Elizabeth was odd, kind, intelligent, witty, and so ordinary. I rooted for the [...]

    29. Just okay. I don't even know what else to say. The book was just THERE. Zander didn't really seem like that much of a "bad boy." Like Jess said, just not what I expected from the blurb. Kind of boring, really.I did like the female friendships. Hope Stormy gets a book at some point, even though I'm unlikely to read it.
