Vintage (vol 1) by Lisa Suzanne - Release Day Blitz & Review

Title: Vintage: Volume One
Series: Vintage #1
Author: Lisa Suzanne
Release Date: May 1, 2015


Born the daughter of a rock star and his groupie, my life should have been full of glitz and glamour. But the excess and embarrassment of that life didn’t interest me. Instead, I killed time at Vintage, a record store where I stocked shelves and lacked ambition. 
Everything changed the moment I pressed play. One simple lyric awakened me. 
When I stopped denying my attraction to the man behind the music, I started questioning his intentions. We were meant to cross paths, but it wasn’t because of fate. 
Someone was playing with our lives.



Vintage: Volume One


Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: May 2015.

From the striking cover from Vintage I was expecting a rollicking romp through the world of Rock n Roll, a fast partying lifestyle filled with excess but Vintage is so much more than that, the newest book by Lisa Suzanne follows Roxanna Cecilia Price, daughter of rock God Gideon Price, she grown up in a world of financial excess but she's always been guarded, she lost her best friend to brutal murder years before and then the one shining light in what had become her dark world, her boyfriend up and left in the middle of the night over a year ago, no reason, no explanation, he just disappeared. Roxy was left questioning herself all over again. Would everyone she got close to leave her? Would people only insinuate themselves in her life to get close to her father?

Roxy is living a life of monotony, working Vintage record store, home, sleep, wash, rinse, repeat, her world is shades of grey after Damien disappeared in the middle of night, until rock band Flashing Light lyrics sweep into her mind, and Parker James chases away the numbness and turns her world every colour on the spectrum. For the first time Roxy is experiencing a connection so intense, so visceral, that she simultaneously is overjoyed to be finally standing in the light but nervous to be so enamoured by someone she just met.

There's so much going on in Vintage, in the first volume of Suzanne's new Rock Suspense series the more we find out about Roxy, about Parker, about Gideon and even Damien, the more we know something sinister is building behind the scenes, I love that sense of something always lurking in the background, that something is coming, the only thing I felt was missing from Vintage was Parker's POV, I would of enjoyed hearing his thoughts and knowing what was going on behind the scenes to give me a better over feel for this enigmatic character. There's a wonderful sense of knowing everything and yet not truly knowing anything, Roxy is inherently easy to like, she's been tested and hurt and she's still surviving, still willing to become invested in something new, and Parker with his cloak and danger hiding, he's as intriguing as he is sexy, and I'm looking forward to vol. 2 to find out what Gideon has been hiding, and what Roxy decided.
