Bitter Notes

Long before the world bowed down to the band Whispered Words, they bowed down to me.

I was a simple girl in a small town, working two jobs and juggling college full time—all in the name of a better future.

Until them…Kieran. Cal. Ash. Rad.

I became their obsession.

They marched into my world like a hurricane, infiltrating every aspect of my life and taking control until they owned every inch of me.

Their toy to use.

And I ate up every second of it.

I should have known they were only chasing me for my father, Corbin West’s multi-million-dollar music legacy.

But I didn’t. I stayed. I loved. And then I was wrecked.

My name is River West, and this is the story of how Whispered Words loved me, used me, and tore my heart in two, leaving me when I needed them most.

My Thoughts 


I stayed up way to late to read this book and I am deeply offended that the sequel isn’t out already. I need it now!

I mean at first, I kinda wasn’t that interested. I’m not going to lie… the plot seemed a little far fetched and the insta gang bang was slightly appraisive for me in a book as long as this one. However, I decided to roll with it and kept reading…. As I kept going… the plot I was expecting took a drastic left turn to, “OMG WHAT JUST HAPPENED,” town. These characters did some very unpredictable things and I was so here for it.

The main character River could be a little annoying at times… especially in the beginning, but her perseverance and dark humor grew on me towards around 20% and then I became obsessed.

The men in this book are suppppperrrrrr tasty.

The steam between all them is AMAZING. Like top notch stuff and lots of dirty talk…

A++ Ms. Beck!

I honestly couldn’t choose a favorite…

UNTILLL.. around 80% and then I was very upset at one of them… he can take a hike chief. The ending of this story is absolutely gut wrenching so be warned… you will cry and demand the next book immediately.

I cannot WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS TURNS OUT! (Please say this like Rupaul does)

Overall, I really really REALLY enjoyed this book and I cannot wait for the next sequel. Please excuse me while I buy a physical copy 😀
