"Manipulated" [Hammered Series, Book 3] by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

Author's Book Description : My name is Owen Blackwell, and I’m currently in recovery.

Not from what you think, though I do enjoy a bit of whiskey.

No, my issue is that I fell foolishly in love with my best friend. Oh, and she’s getting married.

So, in my eternal stupidity, I hooked up with a woman at our annual masquerade ball. You know what they say—the best way to get over a woman is to get under another.

Who is this woman, you ask? Calliope Templeton. She's unlike any other I’ve ever met. And believe me, as the guitarist for Hammered—only the biggest selling rock band out there right now—I’ve met quite a few.

Now I have to figure out how to convince her we’re more than just a one-night stand. She’s supposed to be my happily ever after.

And if necessary, I'm willing to show her just how resourceful one determined Irishman can be...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! Callie (Calliope) has been trying to bring her life together ever since her divorce about a year ago, now she lands a job that could bring her photography career into the big time. Yet will Owen, the sexy bassist from the band she’s working with, add to her newfound happiness or brake everything she has worked so hard to accomplish?

I had never read this series before, but the authors have it set into their Oblivion Series’ world, and I had read a book or two from that “world” already, so I had a feeling I would enjoy this one. And I am happy to say I did enjoy it. I liked Callie and Owen, especially with their pet names for each other and their sweetly hot/intense banter. In addition, I also enjoyed how this novel’s plot progressed while bringing in other characters from past and future novels.

Yet .... Callie ended up acting the exact way that annoys me the most which was being wishy-washy about her feelings and how those feelings would affect her life. The only good thing about that situation was that it only lasted for about one to two-ish chapters, as the rating would have been lower if she had kept acting that way.

Therefore, what was the best thing about this novel was Owen. He holds his own against all of Callie’s insecurities. Also, I loved Owen’s alpha ways while still allowing Callie to “spread her wings” in regard to how she wanted to live her life. I would definitely reread this novel just to read more of Owen.

Overall, I would recommend this novel to those wanting a sweet rockstar romance that has slightly smutty scenes. However, I recommend it more to those who have already read and enjoyed other novels from Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott's Oblivion Series' world.
