Review: A Lush Betrayal by Selena Laurence


Title: A Lush Betrayal
Series: Lush #1
Author: Selena Laurence
Release Date: February 26th, 2014
Rating: 3.5 stars
Cliffhanger: No


Joss Jamison has it all. He's the lead singer for the world's hottest rock band, Lush. He's wealthy, sexy, talented...and miserable. Twelve months ago, Joss lost his finely honed control and made a mistake he can't undo. A mistake that could end up costing him his best friend, his band, and maybe his heart.

Mel DiLorenzo has it all. She's been hired to document the world tour of her sister's fiance's rock band. She's gorgeous, talented, loved...and sick of being the little sister. When she agrees to the summer job, Mel has no idea she's walking into a minefield of friendships lost and hearts destroyed. She also has no idea what it means to be the object of Joss Jamison's affections.

One hot rock star plus one life-altering mistake, add a dash of sexy younger sister and a handful of broken hearts, and you've got a recipe for fire. Life on the road can be hot, but for the boys of Lush, it's about to get a whole hell of a lot hotter.

Are you looking for your next angsty read? Hungry for rock star drama, full on tragic spectacle with romance throw in the mix? A Lush of Betrayal is not only it but a little bit more too. Think soap opera on steroids – lots of sex, romance, guilt and betrayal wrapped in pretty red bow, that only waits for you to be unwrapped.

From moody and heartbroken band leader, Joss Jamison through wild and angry other band members to two sisters that certainly know how to make Lush’s men blood boil, Selena Laurence delivered a novel that not only holds enough appeal to make you read in a single day, but makes you love and hate the characters that hold more than few terrible secrets. The question is are you ready to learn them all?

I was entertained enough to not to feel bored. A Lush of Betrayal certainly is action packed and clearly have plentiful of scenes that were crazy good. Yet it borders on being called ‘rock star version of soap opera’. It has some advantages of course – it doesn’t beat around the bush, isn’t perfect little, sweet novel and while the storyline has some clichés, I was to enchanted by characters and their actions to mind them, mostly. I was flying through pages in insane speed. What can I say? Sometimes, a little bit drama has some appeal.

I’m not sure if every reader would appreciate it though. If you are not a fan of books with damaged characters that like to make mistakes and are a magnet for trouble, you won’t be pleased with the story. On the contrary, if you enjoy seeing auto destructive behavior that slowly builds up and then finally make the storyline reach climax with a bang, then you sure as hell will feel glued to the pages. Sometimes I felt so pulled into the story it was hard to shake it off. I was like one of those fans of TV shows that make people wide-eyed as the film progress in need of more popcorn.

In nutshell, A Lush of Betrayal is instant entertainment on silver platter – easy, light read full of trouble, some guilt and sex and crazy rockers!
