Check out my book review of Reverse by Kate Stewart, the final book in the Bittersweet Symphony duet about a rock star you won’t soon forget.

Thirty years ago, my father became the other half of a broken love story. A relationship he’s kept hidden for decades.
Haunted by my father’s love story, and in my quest for answers, I never imagined I would discover a love of my own.
Or that my love for Easton Crowne would be key in discovering the reason behind what split our parents up.
Doomed from the start and knowing the havoc our relationship would inevitably wreak on our families, I could never have prepared for the toll it would take or the cost of the truth.
But in order to find our ending, we had to go back to their beginning.
How does Kate Stewart make me fall for ANOTHER man?!!! Easton f-ing Crowne!!!!
Stewart wrecks me with her books. WRECKS ME. Easton was everything in this book but man how I wanted to scream at parts….the heartache.
I reread Drive right before diving in and I’m so glad that I did. That book is epic for me and always will be. It’s a MUST read in general but definitely before this one.
Not only does Stewart have a way with words, but she creates an immersive EXPERIENCE. This playlist – OMG. Dive Deep, No One is to Blame, Wicked Game, Hypnotized….these songs (listening while reading) seriously undid me.
I understand what Easton was telling Natalie about the power of music. How can you not?
And those encores? OMG! I couldn’t wait to see what he played next and they SLAYED.
So while I wanted to shake these people sometimes I had to come to understand both sides of each argument…
At first, I didn’t really understand why Natalie started off this chain of events but I guess that was the reporter in her. And boy how people reacted (overreacted in my mind at times) and the back and forth got a bit much but alas…
But ultimately why this is a 5 star for me is because Kate Stewart is just a rock star herself.
A supernova of this art form where she just makes me feel things for days after I finish reading her books.
My recommendation – as much as you’ll want to fly through this, don’t. Take your time. Take it all in. Feel it. Experience it. Absorb every emotion in its 600+ pages.
I’m all over the place….I haven’t slept…what day is it?
I’m going back in….
