Dana Piazzi gives 9/10 pots of gold to Into the Fire (The Replacement Guitarist, book 3) @loritoland #giveaway

Why I read this book: We were given the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review, and because the author Lori Toland is our featured author until the 15th of June. I was excited to get the chance to read the books in The Replacement Guitarist series because they are on my wishlist, and after reading the first two I was definitely interested in reading Into the Fire. I have become invested in the characters.

See my review of The Replacement Guitarist (Book 1) and my review of Home for the Holidays (Book 2)

into the fire

Published: May 5th, 2014; 155 pages

Blurb: When Blaze got his dream job, he never imagined within a year he would be fired. After a botched performance with Cassie, he’s kicked off the tour — and so is his boyfriend Jason — but Blaze is determined to live his dream again and he may have found the perfect band to do it with. 

He will stop at nothing to be back on stage, though the costs of stardom may bring an end to his romance with Jason. Can Blaze have it all? Or will Blaze have to leave his first love behind to follow his destiny?

The Cover: On the cover of this book, the guitarist’s image is a little clearer and we can get a better idea of what Blaze might look like. I really like the way it appears he is playing on stage under the bright lights of an arena.

What I thought: One of the things I really like about this series of books, is that they flow from one to the other without lapses of time in between. I struggled with deciding between an 8.5 pot of gold rating and a 9. This latest book is shorter than the others, but I found it the best so far so I reflected it with the higher rating. Out of all the books this one has the most tension between the characters. There is still love and passion, but for me a really good book lets you experience a wider range of emotions.

With Blaze and Jason being fired from their jobs with pop star Cassie, they both find themselves looking for new employment. Just like in the second book, Jason tended to pull away from Blaze in strained situations. Not allowing him to be an equal partner in their relationship with the give and take of support. The lingering hurts that this causes finally blows up in their faces when Blaze heads out on tour for the new band Jason’s company manages, Razor’s Edge. The lack of discussion of their problems leads to misunderstanding and stubborn refusal to back down for both of them.

Now, not everyone will agree with me, but I enjoy a good cliffhanger. It can be difficult to wait for the next book when there is something hanging on the brink at the end of the last one. For me, I love the tension, even though I can be impatient too. But, I can say with certainty that I can’t wait for Book 4 of The Replacement Guitarist series to come out. For those who have trouble waiting, it doesn’t appear that there will be a long wait for Into The Light, the next book in the series.
