Book Blitz Review ~ Everything I Want by Natalie Barnes

Everything I Want by Natalie Barnes


"I can’t freaking believe this! Me, Sophia Mancini, and my band just got signed with a major recording label! And that’s not all. We get to open for Undead Society on tour! I’ve always had a thing for their lead singer, Tristan Scott. He’s dangerously sexy. Finally meeting him, I soon realize that Tristan is nothing more than an arrogant, conceited prick!

He gets off on making this tour difficult for me as much as possible. But it’s so worth putting up with his arrogance when I feel that high I get when performing. Not even Tristan can take that away from me.

He intimidates and excites me all at the same time. Trying to put up a front that he doesn’t affect me, I find that it’s getting incredibly harder to pretend. Every time that I’m around him, I feel myself weakening. He’s trying to break me, dominate me, and take me."

~this review may contain minor spoilers~

That feeling you only get when you're onstage. The excitement you feel coming off the audience and the thrill of performing. This is why we started this band. This is why we're here.

After eight years of hard work, Sophia and her band 'Dollar Settlement' just got signed by a major record label AND to promote the release of their first album, they are going on tour with one of the biggest bands around ~ Undead Society. It doesn't hurt that she has always been insanely attracted to their lead singer, Tristan Scott; but her rose colored glasses are about to be ripped off in a big way. Turns out, Tristan is a bit of an ass, he treats her like absolute garbage and goes out of his way to make her life a living hell, but she refuses to let him ruin this for her ~ the rush she gets on stage is like no other and she wouldn't give it up for anything. But being stuck on the road with the douche proves to be a bit of a problem, especially when she realizes that no matter how big a dick he is, she still finds him sexy-as-hell; her reactions to him confuse her as much as they piss her off and it doesn't help that he seems to develop a Jekyll & Hyde personality towards her the more time they are around each other. The road to stardom is proving to be a tougher journey than she ever could have expected, and it turns her world upside down in more ways than one; can she handle the pressure while fighting against her growing attraction to the bane of her existence? And more importantly, is the cost of fame worth it when it rips someone close to her from her life forever?

Tristan being this close to me makes me feel weak and craving his touch on every inch of my body. Okay, Tristan is an arrogant piece of shit. Why am I even letting this guy give me this kind of reaction?

I cannot even begin to tell you how friggin much I LOVED THIS BOOK!! This is exactly how I love my romances; hard, dirty, rough, and loaded with angst, drama, tears, screaming and amazing characters. I was completely sucked into the story right from the beginning and held there til I was spit out the other end a sobbing, drooling, hott mess. It. Was. Perfect. There wasn't a character in here that I didn't fall in love with, but that's not to say that I was always smitten with them all the time. Tristan and Sophia took turns pissing me off. While dude most certainly had his asshat moments, buy the end it was Sophia (little miss queen of DeNile) who drove me batshit crazy with her solid foundation of stubbornness. This girl clung to her hasty decisions like Velcro, even when she realized she was being scared stupid. She really did drive me nuts. I mean, I got where she was coming from, kinda, but I still caught myself yelling at my poor kindle like she would actually hear me. None of that changes the fact that the chemistry between these two was off-the-charts insanely hott. Seriously, this book had THE BEST angry sex scenes I have read in a long time. So damn hott. Just thinking about it now even has me in a lust-induced haze....
Moving on. Just be prepared for a whole lot of frustration as these two fight against whatever they are feeling; they are both confused and scared shitless, but neither can deny the pull they have to the other. And just when you think you've had all the tension your heart can stand, this sadistic little author throws a twist at you that will bring you to your knees. I admit it, I ugly cried. I should have seen it coming, I really should have, but I was distracted by all things Tristan. I think my sole complaint would be the fact that the story is told completely from Sophia's POV; I cannot tell you how much I would have liked to get in Tristan's head just to see what the hell he is thinking. Even still, with so many characters to love, from the band members to Lux and Frankie, it was easy to get lost in the fabulous world Ms. Natalie created for us. Not only has she landed herself solidly on my One-Click-Addiction List, but this book has joined my short list of books that I could reread over and over and over again without ever getting tired of the story. Now I am left with only one question... WHEN THE HELL DOES THE NEXT BOOK COME OUT?!

No one touches you. Anyone were to ever lay a hand on you again, to be hurtful or sexual, I'll kill 'em.”
What do you mean 'sexual'?”
You know exactly what I mean, Sophia. You're mine and no one lays a finger on you.”
“How can I be yours?”

Positive Inspirations
I read countless books and listen hours upon hours of rock music to keep me sane. In a matter of months, I had written a novel and submitted my manuscript for publishing approval in May. Since then, my writing career has snowballed into something much larger than I anticipated. I enjoyed the writing aspect of releasing my novel so much, that I decided music should not be left out of the final product, as it was such an influential part of the creative process.
