Cadence by Lisa Swallow [REVIEW]

Tegan is no stranger to the Rock star life, since her brother is in the biggest rock band on earth, but she doesn’t expect the effect Jax has on her when she joins her brother on tour in Europe. Jax is an up and coming rock star with a taste for the ladies, but Tegan is out of his reach, and he wants her. This whirlwind romance is gripping, and keeps you turning to page until the last one.



What did I like about this book?

First of all, I’m a fan of Lisa’s work, and have been slowly working my way through her books, and it’s taken me way too long to read Cadence. I first fell in love with her stories when I read Summer Sky last year and this is just as good, if not better.

The thing I like the most about the book (well, all of them) is that the character’s are British! As a brit, it’s nice to find a novel with relatable characters. Although the rock stars may not be relatable, the girls certainly are, with their less than perfect bodies, their attitudes and their mundane lives. Me in a nutshell!

But in all honesty, Cadence was one of those books I knew I was going to like, but not really having any idea what it was about before reading it. So when I found out it was a spin off to the Blue Phoenix books I was excited.

it’s really spunky, has lots of humour and makes you carry on reading until you’re falling asleep squiffy on your couch.

What didn’t I like?

Honestly? Not much. I really liked this book, and if I could pick out flaws in it, I would like another book for Jax and Tegan, but I am happy with this as a standalone.

Another thing I didn’t like so much was the falling out. I know couples argue and make rash decisions, and who knows? In a situation like Jax and Tegan’s it might be best to take a break, but it’s a slight pattern within all of the books I’ve read so far by Lisa. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, just not something I tend to like too much of.

Overall score: 8.5/10 A great read but not as good as Summer Sky.
