Review: Lost Lyric (Found in Oblivion #4) by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliot

He’s her good boy gone bad…

Rockstar Ryan Waters has always been the responsible one in his band, Warning Sign. The guy who kept an eye on business while chasing his musical dreams with his best friends. And his closest friend lately just happens to be their tour bus driver, Denver Casey.

Denver Casey is on the run from her past, and she’s careful to stay within her boundaries. Until Ryan becomes her partner in crime and one by one, those boundaries start to crumble. He’s the exact opposite from the guy she’s tried so desperately to leave behind.

Then Ryan turns up missing. And her terror that he’s hurt—or worse—leads to something dark and intoxicating. They both love adrenaline, except this time, the addiction is each other.

Falling for her best friend means putting everything on the line, win or lose. But if her hidden past comes back to haunt them, she might also end up risking her life.

And Ryan’s.

What I thought about Lost Lyric

After 15 books in the related rock and roll romance series from these authors, I've wondered when things might get too familiar, but they've kept my interest throughout and Lost Lyric really distinguished itself. There are so many things I loved about it. The writing seems effortless and it flowed just right for me.  

Just like a good sports romance needs to have actual sports scenes for me to feel like I'm in that world, a rock romance needs rock music to go with it. Lost Lyric just really wowed me with this, from the banter on the bus to the excitement of the performance. And the icing on this musical cake were the many mentions of musicians and music that were some of my personal favorites from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

So let's get to the romance. Ryan has some extra curricular activities that have his best friend and bus driver, the gorgeous Denver Casey, a bit concerned and when she has to rescue him from an alley one night. In the process, they both decide to take their friendship to a new level. After a few starts and stops, they finally decide to give a relationship a try.  Ryan knows just what Denver needs in the bedroom, and they are scorching hot together. But Denver has a past that she doesn't share with Ryan until it's almost too late.  This brings a nice bit of suspense to the story and also brings in one of the characters I'm dying to know more about. Well, make that two characters I want to know more about, because if we don't get a book about Mal soon, I'm gonna cry.

I loved everything about Lost Lyric -- the main and secondary characters, the story, the heat level, and most of all for the love of music that just poured out through this book. My favorite in this series (so far) and one of my 2017 favorites.

About the Authors
USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn likes music and men, so she figured why not write about both? When she's not writing, she's screaming at men's college basketball games on TV, playing her music too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.

USA Today bestselling author Taryn Elliott is obsessed with rock stars, men, and her unending playlists--maximizing these things seemed like a very good idea. When she's not writing, she's losing hours to hot men on TV, and/or a graphic design project. Multitasking is her middle name.

They decided to combine forces and found that hey...this writing deal is even more awesome when you collaborate with your best friend.

And so Lost in Oblivion was born.
