Review: Untamed by SC Stephens

Credit: Goodreads
5 Stars

The spotlight doesn't only shine. Sometimes, it burns.

Being the bad-boy bassist for the world's hottest band has earned Griffin Hancock some perks: a big house, a fast car, and most importantly his incredible wife, Anna. The one thing it hasn't brought him is the spotlight. Anna tells him to be patient, that his talent will win out. But Griffin is through waiting for permission to shine.

Without warning, Griffin makes a shocking decision and takes the gamble of a lifetime. Suddenly he's caught up in a new level of lights, cameras, and chaos. One that pushes his relationship with Anna to its limits. Anna has always found his unpredictable behavior sexy, but lately he's seen an ache in her eyes--and it has his soul in knots. Just as the recognition Griffin seeks is finally within reach, the thing he loves most in life could be slipping through his fingers . . .

My thoughts; First off I want to start by saying, this is a favored series for me. I always, always recommend it. It is solid five stars for me from beginning to end. If you have yet to read it get ready for a roller coaster ride. Angst and drama are just the tip of the ice burg. Even when you absolutely hate everything that is happening you still can't put it down.

This book was no exception. For those who know this series and its characters, you know the mess that is Griffin Hancock. I have always loved his character in a, well aren't you "special" kind of way. He is an egotistical, narcissistic, well ... Douchebag. I spent the beginning of this book rolling my eyes so hard, seriously, I think I pulled something. Griffin is like a toddler that throws a tantrum because he doesn't get the toy he wants. I wanted to throttle him through probably 70% of this book. He is literally like that person who you just look at and think, "his mouth isn't attached to a brain, is it?" How can someone be so completely oblivious? Being inside his head was possibly the most frustrating thing I have ever done. At first, it was funny and then it just wasn't anymore.

But then something miraculous happens...

Griffin became an adult! And I fell in love with his character in a completely different way. I began to see him in a completely different way. And I ended this book thoroughly satisfied.

This would be the part where Griffin would say something way inappropriate. *wink*
