Release Blast ~ #REVIEW ~ Rock Star, Confined by S.M. Shade

Release Date: September 10

There was so much I never saw coming.

Opening for Tragic, one of the most famous bands in the world, catapulted me from mediocre anonymity into the limelight.

The leap from struggling musician to successful rock star happened quickly. 

After my album topped the charts, I was headlining my own tour, performing for thousands of fans, and loving every moment.

Just as suddenly as my career began, it slammed to a halt, stopped by a word uttered worldwide.


With my tour postponed, it looked like my year wasn’t going to be a promising one, until I ended up quarantined with Geneva Rowe. Sexy, funny, and a frustrating mystery, Geneva made the days fly by.

“Sometimes the universe intervenes.”

I couldn’t remember where I heard those words, but they stuck with me. Not until this year, did I believe they could be true.

Now if only it could help me convince this stubborn woman we could have more than a temporary isolation fling.

This is my first romance story that is set in pandemic times. I knew there would be books like that and I'll admit I was nervous about how it would come across for a romance novel. But I'm at least happy to say that it was well done and by an author that I really enjoy.

I actually like the way that she captured some of the insecurities and fears that some people have in dealing with the way things are now. She even showed some of the minor, not terrifying aspects like lounging about all day and having a chance to binge watch TV. And at the same time she wrote this really good, romantic story.

I found myself really liking both main characters even as I wondered what secrets the leading lady, Genna, was hiding. I did feel like the leading man, Patrick, was much more open and I connected with him faster but overall I really like the way that the relationship seemed to have built up organically despite what was happening around them. At no point did I feel like this couldn't have happened if it weren't for the pandemic and I liked that I got that vibe while reading.

While this book can easily be read as a standalone from other books S.M. Shade has written, there are some characters I recognize from her previous work. That's always something I like when reading multiple books by one author.

Overall I just found myself really enjoying this story and would recommend it.
