    • I am a fan of the Men of Manhattan series, and I was more than a little excited by this blurb. Rock star? Former SEAL? YES, please. But, ALAS!This book was a big fat FAIL for me. The plot was simplistic at best. The "who is trying to kill Gareth?" mystery was not even remotely suspenseful. The villain was predictable.The alternating first-person POVs weren't distinct, so I could barely keep track of who was doing the narrating. I never connected with Gareth or Axel. They were very much cookie-cu [...]


    • 3.5 starsFret has the perfect recipe for a great m/m. I find myself engrossed in the story and the heroes, but got bothered by the way it was executed.Gareth is an introvert guitarist of the rock band and since coming out as gay, he had been receiving threats. A little interesting tidbit about Gareth - (view spoiler)[ He is a man-virgin (hide spoiler)]Here comes, Axel, the badass ex-Navy SEAL to be his bodyguard/investigator. A little interesting tidbit about Axel - (view spoiler)[ He never bott [...]


    • 1.5 starsUnfortunately, this one did not work for me. At all. I debated even writing this review because I can't quite put my finger on exactly what was wrong with it. It seemed "off" and not at all like Ms. Gasq-Dion's Assassin/Shifter books that I've read.What I can tell you is that the editing and grammar errors were plentiful and while this usually doesn't bother me all that much, it was highly distracting here. Thanks to my friend Brooklyn for explaining this part to me, which initially had [...]


    • 2.5 starsMe and your editor need to talk A.S.A.P.I'm use to Sandrine Gasq-Dion bodies of work. I'm sure I've read 98% of her published catalog. I know what to expect out of her stories before I start reading them. Be it the Men of Manhattan Series, or my obsession with her Assassin/Shifter series. I can expect pure smut, unadulterated sweetness, a lot of gyrating, some closeted a-holes, a lot of acceptance from straight guys, and just fun reading them. You can say I'm familiar biblically with he [...]


    • A story about a badass ex-Navy SEAL, who happens to also be a mercenary/assassin, who is hired to bodyguard, and subsequently falls for, his rock star charge? Written by Sandrine Gasq-Dion? Pretty please, yes! I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on this story!So I feel terrible about this, I really do, but this did not work for me. I actually had to stop and confirm it was Sandrine who's written this story because I could not believe it. It's just so badly written and a complete mess.Putti [...]


    • Some readers complained about the editing and poor grammar and that was one of the main reason they didn't enjoy this story. A writer from the Writer's Digest once wrote "I really don’t care that much about grammar as long as the language isn’t getting in the way of understanding and enjoying the story"I agree with him, and I very much enjoyed this story, I can't wait to read the sequel.


    • ARC of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review. I am so disappointed with this book. I had high hopes for it. I mean, come on. Rock Stars. The copy I received claimed to be the final draft but I feel like this was a completely unpolished manuscript. The story was not captivating. The resolution was predictable and the conflict wasn't really a conflict. The characters didn't inspire emotion or drawn into them. I was looking forward to this book and in the end I was left unsatisfie [...]


    • 1.5 stars. I was going with 2 stars until the scene at 88% that could have come straight out of a Scooby-Doo cartoon. It was just too much.I liked Gareth well enough but Axel was just an ass. You know those characters that are assholes but they ride that fine line between "okay I'll accept you because you have just enough redeeming qualities plus you're smoking hot" and "I don't care how hot you are, you're toooo much of an ass"? For me Axel fell into the latter category. His dialog turned me of [...]


    • 2.5 for this book. It had so much potential but just felt disconnected and all over the place. There was no heat between these guys ( my opinion ) and things just happened too quickly and easily.


    • A review by The Blogger Girls.This story had a lot of potential with its hot cover, and bad ass ex-SEAL/sexy rock star theme. It was a sweet story, but there were a few things that bothered me throughout that kept it from succeeding.I liked Blaze. He was a growly ex-SEAL who lived on his own doing his thing day by day and taking jobs as a mercenary. He hesitantly took a job babysitting a young rock star who recently came out and was getting death threats.Gareth was sweet. After tagging after his [...]


    • This book was picked for me for a challenge. It wasn't even on my radar, but what a litle gem it was.Big tough SEAL gets a job babysitting a rock star who has been receiving death threats.I loved the way that their relationship grew and also that the mystery was also quite good.I am certainly going to read the other 2 books in the series. I think Harley and Archilles might be fun.



    • REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEThere is very little that has been written by this author that I haven’t read and loved. Fret is the first book in a new series and moves away from her shifters that a lot of us have become addicted to and delves into the lives of a rock band. I liked Fret but I didn’t love it and the main reason was the weird tense it was written in. It changed to past and present often and quickly and I found it difficult to understand in a lot of places.Gareth Wolf is a roc [...]


    • *copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*After an accident leaves the lead guitarist, Paul in his brothers band injured, Gareth replaces him. The band picks up followers and hits it big, becoming a headliner rather than an opening act. When Gareth decides to come out of the closet, he begins to get death threats. The band hires Axel Blaze, a former Navy Seal, as his bodyguard. Neither man is happy about this, but they tough it out. When I read the [...]


    • 4 Star Review I really loved the blurb and felt like it had soooo much potential but once i finished reading, I kinda felt let down to be honest. Firstly, it kinda reminded me of another similar book that got released recently, but it was different at the same time.Ok, so I was totally expecting the complete opposite to the character Axel then what we were actually given so that kinda tossed me through a hoop, I loved the chemistry and banter between both Axel and Gareth. The suspense factor was [...]


    • Overall book rating: 3.5 starsAudio book: N/aBook Cover 4.25 StarsSo I was pondering on my response here. There is a collection of good stuff in this book. And there is a cluster of “Lifting my eyebrows in a WTF motion”. I liked the idea around the story. I liked the band and the guys in general was enjoyable. There were brilliant little snippets in it and then they were kind almost overshadowed with the “Corny” (by lack of other word) parts. It had lots of potential, but sadly didn’t [...]


    • Overall book rating: 3.5 stars Audio book: N/a Book Cover 3.5 Stars MC1: Gareth Wolf -Lead Guitarist of the band Skull Blasters MC2: Axel Blaze aka Conan the Destroyer - Ex Navy seal and baby sitter I loved this plot the writing style was far from perfect and way to short but the book made me laugh. The Banting between Axel and Gareth was just so good. I really enjoyed this one a lot. Gareth was all sweet and innocent and you cant but to love the guy. I can so see how Axel could not help but to [...]


    • 3.75I see that some didn't like this book for one reason or another, but for me I enjoyed it. There wasn't too much mystery to who was behind everything, so that was kind of predictable. I enjoy rock star stories and adding in an ex military guy and them not jumping into bed 10 pages into the story, made me enjoy it more. I am looking forward to reading the sequel.



    • Fret is book #1 in Sandrine Gasq-Dion's new Rock Series and let me just say this. This story is the perfect start for this series we experience so much in this story and get glimpses of future books to come which I seriously can't wait to get my greedy hands on. Gareth Wolf has recently joined his older brothers band The Skull Blasters as their lead guitarist had injured his hand and can no longer play. Gareth was always in the background hanging around while all the members practiced and perfor [...]


    • 4.5/5 stars Gareth Wolf is the openly gay guitar player for the hottest group climbing the charts, The Skull Blasters. Living your life in the limelight can be hard on anyone, and not only is Gareth dealing with the backlash being gay in the industry causes, he still has nightmares stemming from a car accident that left their former guitar player permanently injured, forcing Gareth to take the position. The threats to Gareth are increasing as of late, so their manager and his brother decide to h [...]


    • I have to say that the premise of the book really caught my eye (yes, I can see myself as a rock band groupie in another life) so I was really looking forward to reading this, especially as Sandrine has already got me addicted to her Assassins/Shifter series and I was really curious to see what she was going to do with this one. Firstly, I have to say that the cover is really beautiful and that is always a good start for me. Gareth Wolf is now the lead guitarist for the heavy metal band, The Sku [...]


    • SANDRINE YOU ARE ROCKING MY WORLD!!!!I read this book in one sitting. After reading Harley's Achilles I had to read the beginning of the series, I was desperate to know where it all began and I was dying to get to know all these incredible characters.After deciding to come out to his fans, Gareth Wolf expected to be treated differently and that the press was going to have a field day, however, never in a million years was he expecting to attract the attention of a stalker, and not any stalker, b [...]


    • Gareth and his brother have been beaten down by life, but came up swinging. They formed a band and have hit the top after touring with Black Ice and Ivory Tower (from Ann Lister’s Rock God Series). Now Gareth wants to come out and live honestly (and quit having sex with women and start having sex with men!) When he does come out a crazy stalker keeps trying to hurt him, so the band hires a bodyguard, Axel Blaze to protect him.Axel is a tough ex-Seal, gay, but doesn’t “do” relationships. [...]


    • I can't lie I picked up this story more for the Navy Seal than the rocker aspect, however, I fell in love with the rock side of things and Gareth, our rocker. There is so many good things about this book it's hard to decide where to start. The fact that Gareth wanted to come out even though it might hurt the band because it's simply who he is and he is tired of hiding it. Then there is the fact that his band mates are behind him no matter what. The brotherly love that is there no matter what, no [...]


    • Fantastic start to this series! Fret is the first book in this series and it absolutely rocked! The book revolves around lead guitarist Gareth Wolf of Skull Blasters. For those of you, like myself, who are huge fans of Ann Lister's Rock Gods series, you'll recognize this band as they are friends with Black Ice and Ivory Tower. Gareth is in need of a body guard because someone is trying to kill him. Enter Axel Blaze. Ex Navy SEAL reluctantly is given the job to be Gareth's "babysitter." As he lea [...]


    • At first I thought, oh no another rocker. Then I thought, but its Sandrine, suck it up, Buttercup and so I did. I'm so glad I did too because it was so much more that just 'rockin out'. Axel is H-O-T!!! hot, hot, hot.He gets a job as a "babysitter" for Gareth, the lead guitarist of Skull Blasters. He's expecting some stuck up Rocker Diva, but what he gets is Gareth Wolf, kid with a rough past just trying to make it and his super loving/protective brother. This book reads really fast, which I enj [...]


    • This book was an unexpected delight. I really expected it to be darker than it was but was pleasantly surprising. Don't get me wrong, there is angst, and definitely some suspense, but things never got too heavy which I appreciated. Gareth was an absolutely adorable character, he immediately felt like the best friend you always wished you had. If Gareth was the best friend you wish you had, Axel was the man you wish you could f*ck. There is no other way to put it. Axel is the epitome of Alpha mal [...]


    • I read this because of a friends review (V's review)She mentioned that others didnt like it for its editing mistakes but she didnt mindI thought the blurb sounded pretty cool and thought I would risk it. I have to admit that I am with V on this - why is everyone so nit picky ? I seriously could only find a few times a word wrongke the word was suppose to be neverd the author had ever.Thats it lol I only found 4-5 of these letters missing and had no other issues.Now for the story.I really enjoyed [...]


    • 3.5 out of 5I liked the story enough, but it felt almost as a NA story, even when one of the MCs was "pushing thirty". It did have a nice slow burn and some good references to Ann Lister The Rock Gods series. I really liked this author's book and I'm sure I'd read Jinx's story, but Fret left me wanting more of a connection between Axel and Gareth. I think I liked Ransom better. Some sections felt too short and chopped. Almost as if they were just cut and paste into the story. Plus, sometimes I h [...]
