Amped by Marie Lipscomb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I am absolutely in love with this book. Amped really tore my heart out and gave it back to me in better shape than when it left. It’s magnificent.

I’ve loved each of the Vixens Rock stories so far, but Amped is on a whole ‘nother level.

Liz is the keyboardist for Vixens Wail, but it was never her dream to be a rockstar. Instead, she wants go to college and help people as a massage therapist. Jones is a big grumpy roadie whose body has betrayed him. The pain in his back is making work practically impossible, but asking for help would mean admitting weakness — besides, what else could someone as worthless as him do anyway? (His sentiments. NOT mine.) They don’t mean to find each other, but the universe has other ideas. And some things are just meant to be.

Jones. Jones, Jones, Jones. This man owns my heart. He is a sweet, precious and devastatingly broken bear of a man. His wounds run deep, both physical and emotional, but he loves with all his heart and just wants someone to love him in return. And when he finds Liz, finds the woman he can smile and laugh with, he fights like hell with his demons to keep her. I LOVE him.

In Liz, Marie does such a wonderful job depicting the anxieties of starting over as an adult and the fear of disappointing your friends even at the detriment of your own happiness. She also includes wonderful therapy representation for Jones and strong, supportive friendships.

Oh, and it’s really freaking hot too.

At the heart of it, Amped is a story about bravery and love. I unreservedly adored it. I hope you do too.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
