Top 3 favorite rockers/musicians
Naming my top 3 favorite rockers/musicians is a tough one. I have eclectic tastes. If the beat or lyrics sway me, I’m all in. Since I must choose, here are 3 favorites but the list could go on.
Pitbull aka Mr. Worldwide or Mr. 305 never fails to put down a beat that makes me want to dance. His sexy, confident lyrics cause me to smile. I love that he has the ability and ingenuity to collaborate with multiple artists. I also like that he chooses to give back to his community through uplifting projects.
Bruno Mars is a super talented musician, singer, songwriter, producer and choreographer. What can he not do? He’s a pleasure to listen to, as well as watch perform. You can tell music isn’t just about business for him. It’s something he truly loves. It feeds his soul.
Lastly, I’ll include Prince. For three decades, as a singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, he’s stayed true to his vision when it comes to his music. I admire his talent and versatility as well. His guitar solos are phenomenal!
About REID’S DELIVERANCE:
Can their bond withstand the test of time?
Lauren isn’t looking for love when she spends a scintillating night with Reid, the sexy keyboardist of Thane’s Redemption. While their passion may be off the charts, her trust issues–and Reid’s secret life as a time-traveling covert agent–makes any chance for a relationship impossible.
When operatives involved in a mysterious project begin dying, Reid defies orders and travels alone into the future to find the cause. But when things go dangerously awry, it takes all of his strength to get himself back to safety–and directly onto Lauren’s doorstep. While neither of them remembers their night of passion, their intense connection leads Lauren to help him. But as Reid’s memories reignite, will he be forced to sacrifice everything to finish his mission–including the woman he loves?
Reid hustled into his jeans and grabbed the fire poker. Just his luck to have a gun in the loft, but no bullets. He’d take his chances. He wanted this perverted, dysfunctional motherfucker.
The French doors rattled as he flung them open. He took the stairs by twos and threes from the deck. At a flat-out run, he hauled it to the side of the house. The full moon illuminated the night. A shadow popped out from behind the covered woodpile. He swung the poker.
The guy ducked and blocked every swing as if he anticipated it. Then he charged.
Reid connected with an elbow to the head.
His opponent retaliated with a swift punch near the ribs.
Reid’s breath hitched. More punches connected for both of them.
“Damn it, Reid, stop. It’s me.”
This asshole knew his name? “Who are you?” Reid felt the opening, and he went for a headlock.
His opponent slipped out of his hold.
“Thane?” Lauren approached with a flashlight.
The beam momentarily blinded Reid. He blocked it with his hand. “Lauren, go inside.”
“No.” She pointed the light and the gun at Thane. “How do you know Reid?”
As Thane sat up, he gave Reid a quizzical look. Thane spat on the ground. “We were in the same band.”
In the kitchen, Lauren dabbed at Reid’s bleeding lip with a cloth. “It’s not as bad as I thought. I don’t think you’ll need stitches. What about your ribs? They’re bruised. Are you sure it doesn’t hurt when you breathe?”
“I’m fine. Take a look.” He lifted his shirt. “It looked worse than it really was.” Funny. It didn’t hurt like earlier.
“Looks like you’re a fast healer.” Her gentle swipes grew harder. The sting zipped into him. “I can’t believe you ran out there like that.”
He took the cloth from her hand. “I can’t believe you didn’t do what I told you.” He suppressed the hint of pride welling up. She hadn’t listened to him, but she also hadn’t shown fear.
“You knowing Thane is a weird coincidence. At least he can help you fill in the blanks.” Her gaze drifted to the living room. Thane was on the phone with Celine. “Do you think you two can talk without wailing on each other again?”
“Looks like we have to.” How were Thane and Lauren connected? Why did the two of them in the same room seem wrong? “You mind giving us time alone?”
“Of course not. I need to call Celine after Thane is finished. Just remember to keep it civil. I don’t like seeing you bruised and bloody.”
A frisson of irritation kicked up. “You make it sound like I got my ass kicked.”
She huffed in exasperation. “Give this to Thane.”
I definitely recommend reading book one (Thane’s Redemption) first–the first real explanation you get of what is going on with The Song, Reid, Thane, and the rest of them doesn’t come in this book until after 60%, and it’s all just different enough from anything else you’ve probably read to be confusing…
Though it does help you emphasize with Lauren, that’s for sure!
Reid’s Deliverance is a unique story with interesting characters–one heck of a ride! But it doesn’t work all that well as a standalone.
Rating: 3 1/2 stars / B-

The one night she’ll want to remember, she’ll be forced to forget.
It’s been almost a year since Celine’s fiancé’s death and she’s still struggling to move on. But when she meets Thane, the super hot lead singer of Thane’s Redemption, she finds her desire reawakening, and her heart opening. Soon one kiss leads them straight into a night of heated passion…
Thane’s unexpected connection with Celine only leaves him wanting more of her—but his life makes it impossible. For Thane’s Redemption is just a cover for a deeper secret: A former Army Ranger presumed dead, Thane is really a time-traveling, covert operative charged with saving the world from disaster. Each jump through time forces those around him to forget he ever existed—and Celine would be no exception. But can time work in their favor to give them a second chance at love? Or will a choice Thane makes in the future put Celine in mortal danger?…
