Love the music—never the man. At twenty years-old, Sabrina Caroline was America’s sweetheart pop star, until she took a year off to treat her social phobia that her cut-throat-manager/mom paid top dollar to keep quiet. Now as part of her comeback, she’s forced into collaboration with one of the hottest rock bands topping the charts—Birds of Prey—whose lead guitarist happens to be her biggest mistake…and her biggest regret. Hawke Owens never imagined Birds of Prey would surpass the basement of the Duncan High School for Performing Arts, let alone score them a European tour. But success has its price, and for him, it’s being forced to work with the only girl who shattered his heart—Sabrina Caroline. She’s everything that he remembers and more, every memory and fantasy come to life. At first touch, their connection is electric, but it’s also as strong as her determination to follow her number one rule—she doesn’t date rock stars…even though she’s become one. Loving her again is as natural as holding his guitar, but she’s destroyed him once, and this time the stakes are higher, more public, and the consequences life-altering. Against the backdrop of the birth of MTV, they’ll have to choose between the demands of their label, and the demands of the heart.
My Review :
Thank you so very much Sassy Savvy Fabulous PR for sending me a copy of Against All Odds!! I’m very honored and grateful!! 🙂
5 Let the music do the talking Stars!!
For whatever reason i have always loved the 80s whether it be for the music or the clothes so you can probably understand why i was so stinking excited to see this on my Kindle! It was very sweet, frustrating, sexy, and intriguing. This was my first time reading Ms.Yarros’ work and i can’t tell you how much i’m looking forward to picking up her other books after having read this one! It was short but in my opinion that didn’t make the story too fast paced. It was way more than just a story about two people getting a second chance at love and that’s why it really won me over. Within the pages of this book i felt like i myself was in the 80s along for the journey with these characters and i never wanted to leave. Also, i really dug the heroine saying As If! 🙂
Sabrina Caroline was a character who was America’s Sweetheart that loved to sing. At certain points during the day especially around others in a crowd she began to feel anxiety of sorts but it was much more than that. She was sweet but she had a wild side to her as well. I hated how others micromanaged her and her mother in my opinion was the worst of all. All i could hope for was that she’d muster up enough courage to silence those people enough so she could do things her own way. I loved that no matter what she cared for Hawke.
Hawke Owens was a character who had finally achieved his dream of being a lead guitarist in a huge Rock N’ Roll band called Birds of Prey. Even though he was living the life he always wanted something or rather someone was missing from the picture. He could be a jerk at times but he could be so kind in others. At first i didn’t know how i felt about him and i think that led me to wanting to reach his point of view in the story even more. He surprised me on multiple occasions and in the end i was sold on him. My heart warmed when i read of his feelings towards Sabrina.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that’s short but holds your interest and makes you wish you grew up in the 1980’s!! It’s a light-hearted read that’s filled with serious moments and issues. I can’t believe i haven’t read the rest of the books in this series yet so i plan on picking up every single one of the Love in the 80’s books ASAP! If you haven’t already One-Clicked this book please go do that now! You won’t regret it! I hope you love it as much as i did! 5 Stars all around! 🙂

He took my face in his hands and leaned in until he was all I could see, all I could feel, and smell. How easily he consumed me with a simple touch. “There have been too many women. Too many meaningless encounters. Too many faces. But there’s only been one name in my mouth, and it’s always been yours. Only yours.”
His mouth met mine without preamble, and before I could protest, I was lost to the feel of his lips on mine.
It was so familiar, yet new. When his tongue stroked the seam of my lips, I opened for him, and reveled in his groan as he sank into the kiss. I found the support beam against my back as he pressed against me, our bodies aligning with the fit I’d always remembered as perfect.
It was still just as exquisite.
His hand stroked down the side of my body, a path of fire igniting in his wake until he gripped one of my hips, pulling me even closer to him. With the other, he tilted my head for a deeper assault, exploring the recesses of my mouth, lingering like he didn’t already know every part of me.
It was the best second first kiss in the history of kisses.
