MY RATINGS: 2/5 STARS
About this Book:
Yara Phillips is a wandering muse.
She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.
David Lisey is in need of a muse.
A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.
Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential:
A broken heart.
David’s religion is love.
Yara’s religion is heartache.
Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.
Firstly, I am in love with that book cover. It is so goddamn beautiful that I had my eyes stuck to the book even before I saw the name “Tarryn Fisher” on it. Moreover, the title just hooks you in. My first thought at seeing this book was “There’s another Tarryn Fisher book out there and I don’t know about it? How is that possible?”
So, of course, I had to read it as soon as I could.
I have to say I am pretty disappointed. This is the most normal Tarryn Fisher ‘Romance’ that I have read and that is NOT a compliment. Tarryn doesn’t do NORMAL. And her romances are over the top insane and intense.
Yes, Yara had her ‘issues’ but it wasn’t enough craziness. She runs away from her problems. That IS messed up but not poetically.
Moreover, I even found the writing style lacking the usual charm of Tarryn. Is everyone sure he book wasn’t written by a ghostwriter? Because it feels that way.
I love the concept of artists thrown in the mix.
“The most twisted thing about being an artist comes when you understand you’re creating for one specific person. The painful part is realizing who that person is, and the devastating part is knowing the compulsion will never go away.”
Artist +heartbreak = Awesome art.
All they need is a muse to break the heart. Someone they really are in love with.Enter Yara. the wonderful ‘kick your ass with my sexy boots’ English accent muse. Who could not love her?
So David fell for her and fun for both of them for a while.
Then things go wrong. All very predictable.
That is another thing I hated about this book. There were no plot twists, not according to me. It was all very boring and bland. The only thing I do like about this book is how it looks and the title.
