    “You're so warm—so wet,” he breathed against my skin. “I’m gonna fill you up with my cum.” “Yes. Please.” “Look at you, getting fucked raw, begging for my cum. All with the doors open for anyone to see.” I flicked my eyes outside, knowing no one was there, but liking the extra shot of adrenaline at the thought of someone out there. “They’re probably watching these perfect little tits bounce from how hard your pussy is taking my cock.” “Oh, god,” I whimpered. He knew how much it turned me on—h “You're so warm—so wet,” he breathed against my skin. “I’m gonna fill you up with my cum.” “Yes. Please.” “Look at you, getting fucked raw, begging for my cum.

He knew how much it turned me on—he knew my fantasies. “They’d be so hard from watching you they’d have to get their dick out and stroke it, imagining what it feels like to be inside you—imagining what it would feel like to tongue fuck your sweet cunt.” “Yes, yes.” “Would you let them, sweet Nova?” he asked, his hand skimming down to between my folds. “Would you let them eat your pussy while I fucked you?” OHMYFUUUUCKYOUGUYS! I stayed up until 3:30 am reading and the only reason I stopped is because I was traveling and needed to wake up 3 hours after I finally went to bed. FOR THE RECORD, I've read this book TWICE. AND I LOVED IT EQUALLY as much the second time around! I wasn't even at the halfway point in this book and I already KNEW in my BONES this was going on my faves list.

GOOOD GOD this is one of those romances that I LIVE and DIE for!!!! And I cannot finish without telling you about the EPIC BROMANCE in this book!

Unfortunately, as new step siblings, there was never an appropriate time for their love to blossom. When Parker’s big break presented itself, Nova remained behind adjusting to heartbreak and resentment. Once upon a time, you’d forgotten me as quickly as you’d known me. Fast forward 5 years and both are accomplished in their field. Parker is lead singer of The Haunted Obsession with international acclaim while Nova is an artistic nomad leaving her anonymous mark as she goes. Although these two have lost contact, neither are far from each other’s mind. But when the reconnect, Parker refuses to let Nova run a second time. How many nights had I looked up at the sky and wished he’d been right beside me? How many moments had I closed my eyes to imagine him there, sharing the life we painted when we were kids? Too many to count. Told from past to present, we learn of the unbreakable bond these two shared. What may have been initially misconstrued as inappropriate, their love was pure and genuine. Now as adults and once again working and spending quality time together, it’s like no time has passed. Yet before either can move forward, previous hurts need to be acknowledged and hearts stripped bare. “Is this better, Nova?” I asked quietly now that I was only a foot away. “What would make it better? How do I get you in my arms?” Blame it on the Tequila was a second chance romance that simmered as we experienced lovely tender moments between Parker and Nova. Yet at times I felt the amount of missed opportunities was disheartening. Fortunately with secondary characters that shed lightness and humour it gave us the balance this story needed.

Ash, i love you but NO. funny thing is, i kinda want a story for Ash because he intrigued me the most out of everyone in this book lol. — i don't understand why these so-called alpha males are written as possessive in the beginning, if they're willing to share their lover?? like... this convo: He groaned, pushing in harder-deeper. "I have a confession." "Tell me", I pleaded. "I'd like it too," he whispered. "I like the idea of you in my arms as someone else touches you. Because they can touch, because I allow them to. Because even if they can touch and taste, I know you're mine." — the audacity Parker had to feel like *the victim*, when he left Nova twice and shitty things kept happening to her as a result?? imo, Parker should have grovelled to Nova after everything he had put her through so the lack of that was just ... ➳ things i liked: — the friendship between Parker and his band. one of the reasons i love rock star romances is bc of the cute moments that often occurs between the band members and i really liked it here. — Parker and Nova’s chemistry. okaay, i know i basically listed the things i didn’t like about their romance above but, when they’re not being frustrating or annoying, they had some cute moments, i can’t lie. i just wish i felt more of it to rate this higher. :// — SO EXCITED FOR RAE’S STORY THOO. 👀 also, if y’all have read the first book, is it worth the read? i didn’t realize until i finished this it was part of a series, lmao. i just assumed it was a standalone, but i’m kinda interested in checking out the first book. maybe.

Well, she went all in and won the jackpot with Blame it on the Tequila! Fiona Cole gave me all kinds of reader goosebumps when she developed this story. Both Nova and Parker were outstanding characters and I want to be their friend. Parker has a delicious dirty mouth *wink* on him that got me all kinds of hot and bothered in all the right places and Nova and her girls are the bestest! This story was pure joy with a scattering dust of #feels that hit all the marks for me as a reader. GAH, why have I waited this long to read this author?! I feel so behind! #help I think what I liked best about this story is that at its bare bones, it’s a story of redemption and reconnection. It’s a story of two souls destined but deterred for a little while by choices and life. It’s a beautiful, slow-burn, passionate and sexy journey full of tension in all the right places that will have you bursting with happiness from the inside out. #trust Grab your copy today → https://mybook.to/BIOTTkindle

    Ahhh!! Nova and Parker...swoon! I loved these two so much! Slow burn build up to hot, steamy scenes and angst leading to heart eyes and so much love for these two! Rock star and supernova are everything! The girl gang continues next with Raelynn’s story and judging by the snippet at the end, it’s going to be another knockout by Fiona Cole!!

The fact that i usually don’t enjoy step-brother romances but i enjoyed this speaks volumes! When, I read the first book in the series, I wasn’t expecting to love this book so much. There’s just something about Fiona’s writing🙌 ”For the first time in years, on a bus in the middle of nowhere, I knew. With Parker Callahan, I was home.” Holy shit. Parker Callahan,24, is a character I don’t know what to make of. There were few times where I was so done with him cause his decision making skills annoyed me to no ends but there were few another moments when I wanted to give him a tight hug and tell him I loved that he was following his dreams. I loved his relationship with his other band members of his band The Haunted Obsession and I loved how caring he was when it came to Nova, though he did fuck up twice where i wanted to kill him but ehh, I’m gonna forgive him cause he sings and boys who love music and sings🥵>>>> ”Then there was Nova. She intrigued me from the first smile and soft-spoken conversation. But once I got to know her, I saw the depth to her that matched my own. We just…clicked in an almost indescribable way.” Nova Hearst, 23, is one of the most talented h I’ve ever read about and the most relatable when it comes to her hobbies. I personally loved how she felt alive travelling, painting and blogging. I would be lying if I said she was perfect cause she wasn’t and gave up too easily because of trust issues which I related to as well. Knowing about what happened to her in the past just made me go all tears😭 I understood why she was the way she was and I LOVED how in the end she said “fuck you” to all her insecurities and went after her happiness. ”I burned for her, watching the way she danced and laughed—her head thrown back, mouth open wide, arms in the air, and long red hair flowing down her back.” Only me getting Simon Basset vibes (bridgerton)?? Overall, this was a really enjoyable and fun read and yes, there were few moments which I didn’t like but we all have our kinks. I enjoyed the setting and I’m even more excited for Rae’s story cause I love that badass and am really intrigued with her character. Is it too early to ask for her book🥺🥺 He made me better—brave. Hence, why when I would shy away, all he had to do was hold out his hand, and I trusted him enough to step into his light. ***ARC provided in exchange for honest review.***

No maybe. No tie with another. It’s hands down my favorite. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She was unapologetic with the level of angst Nova and Parker put us through. The step-sibling forbidden feelings had my heart aching for them. The slow burn, the buildup, every stolen moment they shared was beautiful. Torturous. All consuming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only was this my favorite type of romance, but it also includes some of the best friendships. Nova’s girl gang was back with their fierce loyalty, but we also meet Parker’s band The Haunted Obsession. They added an extra spark to this story that I absolutely loved. There was never a dull moment when Ash, Oren, and Brogan were on the page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, I like to note that I may have DIED in the best way during Chapter 26! I probably should have, but I was NOT expecting that scene! 🥵🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I highly recommend grabbing Blame it on the Tequila if you’re in search of a book with it all. I loved it so, so much!

Fuck it,” he said, stepping closer. “I went with her because if I stayed with you, I’d have taken you to that back room, and that can’t happen.” That got my attention. I jerked my head up, meeting his angry, heated eyes. all my hope for enjoying this book truly died at this encounter. i trusted some arc reviews for the first time in my life and look where that got me :/// it pisses me off bcos it’s so unrealistic and just so sexist in my opinion. unrealistic bcos what person in real life would ever get turned on by watching the love of their life/the person they’re gonna end up with having sex with someone who’s not them? who finds that attractive or endearing and can just completely overlook it? if that ever happened to me, i would never give the person another second of my time. and it feels sexist af bcos it’s the same pattern of women in romances being treated like shit while the male character faces no repercussions. he just gets to live his life while she’s suffering. that happens enough in everyday life, i don’t want that shit in my romances :/// not if you want me to take this seriously. i can’t keep rambling bcos once i start, i will never stop and im already losing my mind. yall get the gist lmao. on a positive note, i will admit, Fiona Cole knows how to write. not many romance authors stand out to me in their writing style. they all kinda blend together. Giana Darling is one who i always admire and remember— even tho her romances are a hit or miss for me, i always come out reminded of her beautiful prose. and Cole had a similar effect on me. it flowed effortlessly and was beautiful when describing the pining and lobe between Parker and Nova, without too much flowery language stifling the story. but, her nice writing couldn’t quite mask the scent of misogyny in this book x

I’d never had the urge to crawl inside someone and never come out. Until him. I'm a sucker for a second chance romance. Something about the feels and angst of it just does it for me. Add a rockstar into the mix, and I'm so sold! This one had a bit of a mystery element to it that hooked me from the very first page. The story is told in alternating past and present, with the majority of the story taking place in the present. Parker and Nova first met as teens. They had an immediate chemistry and pull that both of them tried desperately to avoid because they were step siblings. Their mutual love of music brought them together, but then seemed to ultimately tear them apart. Parker and Nova fell hard and fast, until they fell apart and everything changed. Years later, Nova is still not quite over Parker, but she's moved on and determined not to think about that part of her life again. But then a night of tequila and a bit of fate bring them into each other's orbits again. Parker is determined not to let Nova walk away this time, and Nova is just as determined to run from all of it. She's pretty hell bent on avoiding Parker, until fate intervenes once more and puts them as close to each other as possible. While I enjoyed the story, I didn't love it as much as I did the first book. I think part of it stems from my frustration with Nova and her inability to tackle anything head on. She runs from any confrontation and while I understood it at the very end when the big part of the mystery gets revealed, it was no less frustrating. Ultimately, I can't place my finger on exactly what it was or why, but it was just missing a little something for me. That spark just wasn't there. I liked the couple and the romance, but I wasn't riveted to the pages. Would I recommend it? Absolutely. It was a fun and engaging read. It just won't be anything I'd come back to.

    Wow. I knew Fiona Cole could write emotional, tortured characters and their heartbreaking journeys to recovery, but I didn't know she could write angst like this. Blame It on the Tequila is a masochistic slow burn with emotion and heat that jumps off every page. I was sucked in from the prologue and held captive until the very last sentence.

My favorite part of the story was seeing how their attraction grew as teenagers. There's just something about that time in our lives that I never get enough of! I love the hormonal rage, the angst of miscommunication and misfired signals, and the obsession with one another. Party dance scene... ENOUGH SAID! *fans self* My new favorite Fiona Cole book and an absolute thrill for angst lovers, Blame It on the Tequila is a gripping romance you can't miss this summer!

I’m so blown away with this story and I’m so glad I gave in after seeing the book a lot on bookstagram and dived in. It was for sure an emotional roller coaster. One of the reasons why I love this book so much is that we got a glimpse of the couple in the prologue when they were young, and there obviously were unanswered questions arising, before it moved to the present, five years later. The author did a great job by jumping from the present to the past throughout the story, revealing what really happened between Nova and Parker. It definitely gave spark to it rather than having the first half of the story in past and then moving to the present - you get my point. Nova was an amazing heroine, but when I got to hear the story of what happened to her (no spoilers here), I fell in love with her even more. She definitely went through a lot and after losing not only the love of her life but also her best friends, she still followed her dreams and was very brave. There were things about her that might have slightly irritated me, but I love that in the end she realised some of her mistakes and faced her biggest fear in order to be happy. Parker’s character was amazing and even though he had his flaws, I fell in love with him - immediately. Seeing him in past and then in present, I really admired that fame never changed him and in the end, he never acted like the famous rockstar and just wanted to enjoy his life with his friends, Nova and do what he loves the most - music. Moving to their relationship, I must say that it was a very frustrating journey. Whenever I thought „Yes, this is it, happiness is happening“, something always came in and messed it up. However, I did understand that their relationship was never supposed to be easy - especially considering how everyone kept on reminding them about their living situation in past, even though their parents only got together when Nova and Parker were (almost) adults. And then, of course, Nova’s fear of being in the spotlight was the reason why it was hard to give in all those years later. But I was melting with the cute scenes they had, and I also must say that, again, the author did an incredible job by describing the connection they had. You could see the love in all the scenes, how they acted around each other and also how they treated each other. It was a crazy ride, but I completely adored everything they went through. And, of course, I must highlight the side characters, especially the other band members. They added spark to this story and I loved every scene with them because they always made me laugh. Anyway, is it too soon to ask for a book with Ash? *** Follow me on Instagram for book edits.

As adults, that chemistry was still there, although I felt like there could've been more growth in the present chapters. I felt like there were some missed opportunities and we dealt with the same issue throughout with Nova always running away. Also the whole issue to why Nova wanted to be private I could've done without. I felt like that whole scenario was thrown in there and then brushed off pretty quickly. Overall, I still loved this, couldn't put it down and the steamy scenes were sexy as hell

The story filters from the present to the past, showing the progression of their story from being step siblings who can't be together, to where they both are now in their lives. I was rooting for them from the get go as you really can't deny the chemistry between them. Side note - the band members were hilarious, Oren being one of my favourites. There was one aspect of the book I was shocked about, and that was some of the sex scenes. Nova is one kinky woman and I loved it. If you've read any of Fionas books, you will definitely not be disappointed with this! And if you haven't read any of Fionas, then you 100% need too - she's amazing.

My favorite combination ;) The pace was perfect, the story was so enjoyable. It’s a mix of emotional,serious,fun and HOT! I really loved the moments both past and present when Nova and Parker were connecting and just being in the moment together. It gave me all the feels! The story goes between present and past. Slowly the past unfolds to reveal something that’s really big and has had an affect on all the characters (even secondary.) This story is so beautifully written. It made me yearn for the characters to figure themselves out. To get their happiness! There’s comic relief from the secondary characters who are all fantastic! I can’t pick a favorite. Don’t blame it on the tequila, this is really an amazing story! I LOVED it! Cheers 🥃

I just finished Blame It On the Champagne (and loved it), so was more than excited to jump into this! Please note this book can also be read as standalone. Tropes: Step-brother / Taboo / Rockstar Romance Nova is an independent red head woman, who would rather live in a forest in a van - Then in a house with people. She is an artist and a writer. And in love with her step brother. Parker is introduced as the talented musician, looking for the fame in being in a band. After a battle of a bands competition, he has the opportunity to follow that rockstar dream. Except he is in love with his step sister. Fast forward 5 years, Nova & Parker are living very separate lives. Parker is out being a rockstar, while Nova is travelling around/exploring nature by herself. Until one of her best friends gets married and her other best friend, silently links Nova & Parker to accidentally "meet" over an instagram LIVE. Parker then will do anything bring Nova back into his life, but Nova can't forgive him for their past. An opportunity then arises which finds Nova working with Parker and his band in writing songs for their new album. This job will get her staying on a bus with the band while they tour around the country. This of course brings Nova & Parker together and having to deal with the past, as well as their feelings that have never left. This story jumps between the present and the past, as well as duel POV. I adored this new adult romance. I read it within 24 hours and it has gone down easily as one of my favourite books. I love a good stepbrother/taboo romance, and to throw in a rockstar plot - It was executed perfectly. I now shall be pre-ordering the paperback, with it being released world wide May 27th 2021. 5/5 Stars with 3/5 Steam.

Fiona is a one-click author for me, AND THIS BOOK IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE WHY. Oh my lord. This is one of my top reads of 2021. I was lucky enough to get an ARC through Valentine PR and the second this hit my kindle I dove in. This book picks off where we left off in Blame it on the Champagne. A few tequila shots deep and Naughty Nova is busting it down on the dance floor. That's when she realizes her best friend Raelynn is on an Instagram live with none other than Parker Callahan. "𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘴𝘯'𝘵 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘢 𝘧𝘢𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘬𝘦𝘳 𝘊𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘩𝘢𝘯 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘏𝘪𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘯 𝘖𝘣𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘥 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘪𝘯 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘩𝘪𝘮 𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘶𝘱𝘰𝘯 𝘢 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘩𝘦'𝘥 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘣𝘪𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘤𝘳𝘶𝘴𝘩 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘱𝘣𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳, 𝘵𝘰𝘰." From here, Nova and Parker reconnect. Something ends up happening and Nova is officially done. She's not willing to let Parker break her heart again. But what happens when Nova is ironically hired to help The Hidden Obsession write songs? With a major case of deja vu, Nova hits the road with Parker and her former friends. She is determined to keep Parker at a distance, but he won't let her slip through his fingers a second time. There is not one thing I didn't love about this book. I loved the forbidden, stepbrother aspect. It added so much angst to the story. Because it's a second chance romance, we get a look into the past. When it comes to flashback chapters in books, most times, I'm flying through because I just want to get to the present and see where the story goes. This book had the perfect amount of flashbacks. There wasn't one time where I felt it dragged or was pointless. I actually enjoyed the flashback chapters just as much as the present! There was so much freaking angst and I DEVOURED IT. Blame it on the Tequila has officially made it to my all-time favs & comfort reads list. Parker and Nova were absolutely perfect. YOU CAN'T CONVINCE ME THEY AREN'T SOULMATES. I loved Nova because I felt I related a lot to her character. She's the reserved girl that once you get to know her is a complete wild child. And Parker? Holy hotness. He is 12/10 a new book boyfriend for me. Want to know why? He is 100% a simp for Nova. I GOT A THING FOR SIMPS. He literally only sees Nova it's so freaking cute! Plus all of the groveling was amazing lol. I could go on and on but I'll end it here! Blame it on the Tequila was everything I wanted and so much more. It is officially one of my comfort reads and I am already ready for a re-read. And that ending???? FIONA YOU'RE EVIL. How am I supposed to wait for Raelynn's book now? Something tells me it might have to do with vodka ;) "𝘐'𝘷𝘦 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘥 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘰 𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐 𝘥𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘵'𝘴 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘶𝘱 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘴𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘴𝘱𝘰𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺. 𝘐𝘵'𝘴 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘮𝘦.

Parker and Nova’s love story is deliciously forbidden and and heart-wrenching. There were many times when I wanted to cry and scream, but the final result of their hard journey was worth every second of the anguish and disappointment they experienced. These two complemented each other so beautifully and their passion was off the charts. Their remarkable love story is a real rollercoaster of emotions that will get your heart through the grinder and cause butterflies in your stomach at the same time! Fiona Cole always delivers sinfully angsty stories that are full of feels and Blame It On the Tequila is another novel with what I would call her personal "trademark". Great writing style, a lot of sexiness and drama, heart-cluthing emotions and spectacular HEA- that’s exactly why she’s one of my favoriote authors and why BIOTA is another hit in her collection. I can’t wait to see what she has saved up for the next book!

Nova is incredibly creative and filled with a soul of art. She is tasked to help Parker's band write songs for their upcoming album while facing unresolved feelings head on. Meanwhile Parker has never moved on from his feelings for Nova and he carries guilt for his part in Nova's traumatic past. I loved both characters and their flaws from Nova running to Parker putting his career first. There are flashbacks that i feel really add to the character's backgrounds while making it easy for the reader to follow the plot. I thought Nova was full of surprises as a character, definitely surpassing my initial expectations. I can't quite put my finger on why I love Parker so much,, but he may be one of my favorite male leads from Fiona's books. Both have so much chemistry and longing for one another that I couldn't put the book down. There are of course extra steamy scenes that I feel are a staple in much of Fiona's books. Tequila delivers on all fronts and is not to be missed. It also makes me desperately hope Fiona will create a rockstar series focusing on a band!

    Aaah, this cover! I adore! I love! Everything about it. The setting. The lighting. The pose. The knowledge the models are a real-life couple. OMG! …and the couple they embody? Parker Callahan and Nova Hearst. Boy, it’s been a while since I hated a hero in non-dark romance as much as I did Parker in the beginning. I’m still not that certain if the way he disappeared on Nova on such an awful time in her life was justifiable. Thankfully, Nova seems to be much more forgiving than I am, lol. I mean … I Aaah, this cover! I adore! I love! Everything about it. The setting. The lighting. The pose. The knowledge the models are a real-life couple. OMG! …and the couple they embody?

I’m still not that certain if the way he disappeared on Nova on such an awful time in her life was justifiable. Thankfully, Nova seems to be much more forgiving than I am, lol. I mean … I get it. Barring his stupid actions a time or two, he was the full package. Adoring. Caring. A handsome devil with a dirty mouth. Ugh! Nova on the other hand has to be one of the most talented heroines I have ever read about. She is a photographer, a painter, a traveler, a songwriter – an artist if there ever was one. A girl with a darker past than I would ever have anticipated. It also explained why she acted the way she did and why it took her so long to go after her happiness. Still, I admire her. So much. So, yeah, this was far from your usual average girl meets rock star type of love story – and I loved that. Then there is the tension over tension. The slow burn. The chemistry. The second chance. The rock star aspect and the forbidden one of a stepsibling romance. Seriously, the feels in this book. It’s intense and frustrating and passionate and heartwarming and funny. Oh, the humor! The snark! The banter! The bromance between the band members (can I order the stories of Oren, Ash and Brogan somewhere??) and the girl gang we got to meet in the first book in this series already. Every girl needs a Raelynn in her life, and with the nail-biting teaser we got within the last pages of this instalment, I know her journey will be another tension-filled angst fest. I can’t wait!

    “Parker wasn’t mine. He was my stepbrother. A stepbrother I let sneak into my bed most nights. A stepbrother that created a heat burning across my skin. A stepbrother that made me want things I’d never wanted before.” I absolutely adored this forbidden stepbrother/rockstar romance. Such a slow angsty burn but the wait was definitely worth it!!! This story flips from them being teenagers living under the same roof to the future 5 years from then. Parker and Nova had so much chemistry it jumped off “Parker wasn’t mine. He was my stepbrother.

This story flips from them being teenagers living under the same roof to the future 5 years from then. Parker and Nova had so much chemistry it jumped off the page. Nova goes through something traumatic when the band is on the verge of their big break. This separates them tragically and isn’t revealed until the end what happened to her. I loved the journey Fiona took me on as a reader to watch the love story of Parker and Nova unfold. The banter Nova had with the whole band was so organic and fresh. The only thing that left me wanting was the scenes when they were teenagers they had some over the clothes action but I would have liked to see Nova lose her virginity to Parker. Overall solid story/plot and characters. Easy light summer read!

    Things to note about this story: 1. Rock star - hot 2. Supernova 3. Step-sibling attraction 4. Second chance romance 5. Abandonment and anxiety issues 6. Parent issues 7. Tattoos and piercings - definitely hot! 8. Art and songwriting This story has so many layers… a definite slow burn. We get glimpses of the past, along with what is going on in the present. This is a truly believable story, and not over the top at all - which is something that I was happy with.

    Blame it on the Tequila is now one of my favorite Fiona books. She's taken heartache, angst and tragedy to a new level with Nova and Parker's story. Throw in a touch of forbidden, rock and roll, art, absolutely mesmerizing scenery—of nature AND packed concert arenas—THAT INSANE SLOW BURN, and this book becomes a whole vibe. Nova and Parker’s story is so sweet and endearing at first. They are both immediately drawn to each other and feelings grow deeper fast. Their circumstances keep them guarded Blame it on the Tequila is now one of my favorite Fiona books. She's taken heartache, angst and tragedy to a new level with Nova and Parker's story. Throw in a touch of forbidden, rock and roll, art, absolutely mesmerizing scenery—of nature AND packed concert arenas—THAT INSANE SLOW BURN, and this book becomes a whole vibe. Nova and Parker’s story is so sweet and endearing at first. They are both immediately drawn to each other and feelings grow deeper fast. Their circumstances keep them guarded and the burning tension and chemistry is palpable. Life is complicated but they are both hopeful that things will turn out how they want. An unspeakable horrific event happens and it tears them apart. Promises are broken and resentment and guilt separate them for years. Present day Parker and Nova have grown so much. They both have strong feelings about the past and a random run-in has them both reeling with the what ifs of the future and the spotlight of Parker’s stardom causing Nova to relive old hurt with the need to run dominating. Through it all though, it’s clear their love never waned. I love the friendships in this story so much. They are sweet, fun and meaningful. And yes, I definitely need stories for every single one of them now! As always, Fiona’s writing is top notch and she makes you fall hard for the characters and story. Nova and Parker are serious contenders as my favorite Fiona couple. Shots, shots, shots and 5++ stars for Blame it on the Tequila!

    Holy. Molly. What a ride!!! I don't think any story in this series, future or past, could be more intense, heartbreaking, emotional ... more anything ... than Parker and Nova's. Ms. Cole has once more outdone herself with this sexy, hot, epic stepbrother-slash-rockstar-slash-second-chance story and its thrilling plot that had me on the edge of my seat and my heart racing. I could have bet that she wouldn't be able to top this book with the next in the series, but the glimpse she gives into Rae's Holy. Molly. What a ride!!!

In any case, this book is incredibly fantastic, told in numerous flashbacks that ramp up the tension to immeasurable and the emotions to unbearable. It is so outstanding that I had to read it in one go because it is 'unputdownable'!

    Cute. I like second chance and friends to lovers but I do wish the chapters with them in the past were not as frequent. But still super cute and also extremely steamy. I did love Nova and Parker together.
