Review: Heart’s Insanity: an Angel Fire Rock Romance by Ellie Masters
Skye Summers endured a tragic past. She wants what the past stole, and despite lingering scars, she’s surviving and thriving. Now she cures the sick, heals the wounded, and takes care of those clinging to life. The only person she can’t heal is herself, because Skye is too broken for love.
Ash Dean has it all: Fame, fortune, and the adoration of screaming fans. The constant parties, drugs, alcohol, and an endless string of one-night stands are taking their toll. He gives and his fans take, until he’s lost within the crowd. He wants someone to see him for the man he wishes to be rather than the one he’s become.
That’s the proposition…
It would be insane to accept and Skye’s a fool to agree, but she’s tired of playing it safe.
It’s time to take a leap of faith, besides what could go wrong?
The first chapter nearly had me putting the book away, I’ve read a variation of it so many times that I almost lost interest. I’m so glad I stuck with it.
Skye is a fantastic character, it’s a bit like peeling away the layers of an onion, there’s always something to discover about her.
I think the past was well handled, enough was said to show how horrific it was, without the unnecessary detail that would have made for uncomfortable reading.
For me, I’d liked to have seen more made of the suspense and reveal. That scene had so much promise for me, but I’m a lover of suspense and I suspect the majority of readers will be content with how it’s written. That’s the reason I gave four stars instead of five.
I did enjoy the book, picking it up every opportunity I got as I was invested in the characters and how the story would develop. I did find a lot of it predictable, but as I used to read just under 400 books a year that’s not surprising.
I think it’s a refreshing take on the rock star genre. I’m also going to go in search of other books by this author. The synopsis of another of her books at the end has me intrigued.
(Four stars – Helen)
