Synopsis

“Hello, Pittsburgh! You ready to rock?" 

Nicks Sorenson, guitarist extraordinaire for the band Wild Angel, has a lot going on during her last year of high school. In fact, she sometimes wonders if someone has painted a bull’s eye on her forehead. 

Stone Jensen, lead guitarist for the band Heavy Remedy, shows up everywhere she plays despite the bad blood between them. The high school principal is targeting her with endless detentions for some reason. And she’s starting to wonder if her mother is losing her mind. 

Life soon spins into chaos for the Sorenson family. It began when Nicks learned the name of the dead musician who’d willed her his four guitars. Then came the dreams of a man shrouded in mist. She doesn’t recognize him, but he seems to know her. 

As the strange occurrences escalate, Nicks goes on an unexpected—and painful—journey into the past. 

She’s about to learn what you don’t know can hurt you.

Synopsis

“Asher Pratt had been a drug for me, and I wasn’t sure I wasn’t still addicted.” 

Chelsea Whitaker works as a waitress at Tapestries, a trendy Pittsburgh bar. She’s doing her best to avoid Asher Pratt, the Pittsburgh rock legend who shattered her heart years ago. 

When he takes a job at Tapestries just to be near her, Chelsea has some decisions to make. 

She soon discovers that some things never change. It’s all she can do to keep a tight hold on her heart as Asher takes her for another wild ride. 

As she struggles to gain some perspective on their relationship, she learns that he’s never needed her more. She must put the past aside for the sake of the future.




*Excerpt*

Stone prowled from one corner of the platform to the other with his guitar then stepped back to the mic to sing. The man sure knew how to whip people into a frenzy. Nicks played to the crowd in one corner, then turned her attention to Stone. She met him in the middle, thrusting her guitar at him with her pelvis. He clutched his chest and staggered back, feigning a heart attack. She laughed and went after him, cornering him against one of the light supports. 

She couldn’t explain it, but being up there with him felt sexual. He was hotter than hell, and if they were a thing, the only task left to do was make it official. She stared into his eyes as she played, silently making promises she intended to keep. Tonight. 

He turned to the crowd, begging them with his eyes for a rescue. Willow had said she came across like a ten-foot-tall warrior woman when she played. That’s exactly how she felt sharing a stage with Stone Jensen. She finally backed away and freed him from captivity against the support. For the time being, anyway.





Rock'n Tapestries Review

Wow!!! How in the world did I not know about this book?!?!

I have to be honest and admit that I found out about this series because of a Blog Tour for Wild Angel, which is the second book in the series. When I read the synopsis of Wild Angel I was absolutely positive that I would love this series. What I did not expect were the tears, the heartbreak and the non-stop yelling I was doing while reading this book. Let me explain ...

Since I wanted to voice my opinion on Wild Angel, I had to read Rock'n Tapestries first. Well, let me tell you that this book was NOTHING like I expected! It took me by surprise and by the end of Asher and Chelsea's story I was an absolute emotional mess!!! Their story was unique and a breath of fresh air! 

I loved Chelsea and Asher! I was cheering for my girl Chelsea since the very beginning of this story, and I supported her with every decision she made. Asher is a Rock God and the man who has stolen and broken Chelsea's heart. I had a love/hate relationship with Mr. Pratt. I did not like to read about how he threated Chelsea in the past. It broke my heart! But, at one specific point of the book I fell in love with him. A few lyrics was all it took to make me melt and cheer for Team Asher. After that moment I could really feel his love for Chelsea. It was an intense and emotional journey for both these characters. At the end of the book I screamed: ''Noooooooooooooo!!! This can't be right!!! OMG!!!!'' <---- Yup! I lost it!

Prepare to laugh, cry and cheer for this couple! Fantastic writing style, lovable characters and a storyline that will have you feeling a rainbow of emotions!

Rating

I give, Rock'n Tapestries, by Shari Copell 4.5 special, sensational, sexy, sentimental stars! Go add this book to your TBR list. You won't be disappointed!

Wild Angel Review

Oh.my.God

What in the world just happened?? I'm still in shock!!! The last few chapters of this book have left me breathless! I did not see that coming at ALL!!!! Holy Crapola! This book was AWESOME!!!

I had high expectations for this book since Rock'n Tapestries totally ROCKED!!! I knew that this story was going to be another roller coaster ride and that is exactly what I got! Without giving anything away, I just wanted to mention that most of the characters in Wild Angel are characters from Rock'n Tapestries. I highly recommend reading the first book before reading Wild Angel. 

Nicks and Stone have a love/hate relationship since the moment they met. But, like they say ... Their is a fine line between love and hate. Once Stone gets to know Nicks better, he can't stay away from her. He is mesmerized by this Rock Goddess. After a few encounters with Stone, Nicks decides to give him a chance to redeem himself for what he said about her. They started out has enemies, but when both of them can't deny the attraction they feel for one another, they cross that line and they fall madly in love with each other. Nicks' life is about to change drastically when unexpected events reveal secrets that will leave her questioning her whole life up until now. 

This book had it all! It was sexy, intense, romantic, emotional and funny. I was so happy to see the characters from the previous book in this story. This book takes place about 19 years after Rock'n Tapestries. It is written in multiple POV's, which is amazing!!!! Sometimes multiple POV's can be confusing or overwhelming, but Shari Coppell knew exactly how to make every single POV count! This book is about Nicks and Stone, but their is a few events that take place that steal the spotlight from their romance. Don't get me wrong. I loved reading about Nicks and Stone's love story, but the paranormal elements in this story is what captivated me the most. 

I had no trouble finding a connection with both these characters. They are stubborn at times, wild, passionate and intoxicating! Their story kept me on the edge on my seat until the last page! Stone was such an amazing boyfriend. He was sweet, understanding and he was always there to love and support Nicks in her difficult moments. They were the perfect couple and I loved every single moment that they shared together.  Make sure you have a box of tissues close by ... you will need them! Emotions! Emotions! Emotions! My heart could not take it anymore! I seriously needed a drink after finishing this book to calm myself ... lol!!! I really can't give anything away about this book because it is filled with twists and turns that will have you guessing until the very end. What I will say is that you definitely need to add this series to your TBR list if you are looking for a series that is romantic, suspenseful, sexy and emotional.

I give, Wild Angel, by Shari Copell 4.5 nail-biting, heart-pumping, heart-rending, amazing stars! Can we get another book pretty please with a cherry on top?!?!?!?!








*About Shari*

Though I write contemporary romance under the name Shari Copell, my real name is Sherry Jesberger.   

I write a historical fantasy/paranormal romance series under the name S.L. Jesberger.I am an eleventh generation native of Pennsylvania.  My husband Gordon and I raised three lovely daughters, one of whom designs my book covers. Another daughter drew the map in the front cover of my historical fantasy series.

I’ve always had stories swirling through my head. Crazy stuff, totally whack situations. I was a voracious reader as a child, choosing to escape into the world of books. I wrote stories when I was a teen, but quit as I grew up. (Keep in mind, there were no computers then. Writing a book or story consisted of a brand-new notebook and a ballpoint pen.) I found some of these early stories as I cleaned out my grandmother’s house after she passed. Unfortunately, I threw them away. 

I started writing again in 2012 after my husband lost his job. Aislin of Arianrhod was published in October of that year. I immediately began to work on the second book in the series, Winter’s Child.

Sometime in the middle of writing Winter’s Child, I had the inexplicable urge to swear like sailor, use modern vernacular, and write steamy sex scenes. I was amused and tried to push it aside. The language in a historical fantasy is obviously much different from a contemporary romance, so I had to behave myself.

I finally just thought, fuck it. I’ll do it.  It was during that time that I started to write “Micah’s Island.” I simply needed to purge the wild story that had taken over my brain by then. It was so much fun to write.  What would happen if you met a man who had never seen a grown woman before?

I chose the pen name Shari Copell because Micah’s Island was so very different from the Àlainnshire series. Copella was my grandmother’s maiden name—I just dropped the A.

For the most part, people seemed to like Micah, though he was a man of few words.  I got some nice (and not so nice) emails about it, mostly from people wanting a better ending. I promptly wrote them one.

I wasn’t sure I would ever write another contemporary romance until Rock’n Tapestries dropped into my head, nearly complete from beginning to end (though I did run some things past Tara Chevrestt, who edits for me. Her suggestions were invaluable.)  You just have to indulge your muse when that happens, as it doesn’t happen often.

In the meantime, rock on!
