Release Date: January 29, 2018
Genre: New Adult Romance. Musicians.
Rating: 4 stars
I love everything that Cambria writes. I'm always excited when she releases a new book and will #1click whatever she produces. With that, I really loved Toad. It's a fresh, new adult romance between two very unlikely people. Aerie Boone is a country music star- one who is facing the scandal of a lifetime. Nate is the red-headed college student who has a knack for writing music. He's the cousin of Ten (previously written about in Butterfly), and lover of fruity pebbles. These two get together because Aerie needs a new music album to get away from the gossip and tabloids and Nate is going to help her write it. But it won't be easy for either of them. For one, Nate has this undeniable attraction towards Aerie and can't seem to keep a professional stance. And Aerie? Well, she's married. She just doesn't know how it happened! With juicy drama, and instant attraction, and one hello of a musician romance, this book is a must read!
** Side Note: I mention above that Aerie is married. Don't worry, this is NOT a love triangle. The circumstances surrounding her marriage mixed with the crap being told about her in the tabloids are thoroughly explained. There is no cheating or anything like that.
With that, this is another fabulous book by Cambria and I would certainly recommend it to fellow readers. In fact, she is one of my top 5 favorite authors and I would recommend EVERYTHING she writes. Her writing and stories are realistic, easy to love, and down to earth. Her characters deal with normal, everyday things, and their stories are told phenomenally.
*** While this book is the second book in the Public Enemy series, it CAN be read as a complete standalone. If you have read Butterfly, then you will recognize Ten who is a side character in this novel. However, you don't have to know Ten in order to love this one as Nate has his own love story and this is it. Feel free to read the series in any order. You won't feel like you're missing anything.
