*** TEASER ***“Holy shit!” Lace exclaimed after War let out the last primal yell. “Why didn’t you guys do that one in New York? It sounds even better live than it does on the recording.” She stood, smoothing the wrinkles from her black tunic top, and walked over to me, gesturing at my Les Paul. “How the hell do you do that?” “Bullet’s pretty fast with his fingers.” Sager chuckled. “Ah, so that’s how you got the nickname.” Lace smiled. “Faster than a bullet on the frets, huh?” “Uh, sort of.” King shoved Sager. “Even faster to get a woman off. One time he even…” “Shut it.” I cut in and glared at King. Lace’s smile warbled, but she managed to right it. “What?” King shrugged. “It’s Lace. It ain’t like she never heard that shit before.”

Today we welcome Michelle Mankin with a review of Love Resolution (Black Cat Records, #3).
Title: Love Resolution (Black Cat Records, #3)
Author: Michelle Mankin
Age Group: New adult
Genre: Contemporary rock n roll romance
Tour organized by: AToMR Tours
There’s a storm brewing at Black Cat Records and lead singer Marcus Anthony and guitarist Avery Jones are at the center of it.
Brutal Strength is leaving Vancouver and heading out on a big stadium tour with reprobate rockers from Tempest as their opening act.
Avery is forced to deal with a troubling figure from her past while being pursued by Tempest’s tatted bad boy, Bryan ‘Bullet’ Jackson.
Meanwhile, Marcus must battle his own internal demons as well as this rival for Avery’s affection.
Can Avery and Marcus keep their fairy tale happily ever after together when the prevailing winds of the real world are against them?
Love Resolution is the third and final book in the Black Cat Records Shakespeare inspired trilogy.
**A new adult contemporary novel with mature subject matter**
Book 3 in the Black Cat Records series follows rockers Marcus and Avery as the band Brutal Strength gets ready to go out on tour. If you are looking for an entertaining rocker story, this book is for you. Mankin builds lots of chemistry between the two main characters and I actually really enjoyed the second half of this story as the tension and angst between Marcus and Avery builds to a very satisfying conclusion.
There are several interwoven story lines in Book #3 and I really enjoyed the presence of the guys from Tempest. Watch out for sexy Bryan ‘Bullet’ Jackson! The author creates lots of chemistry between Bryan and Avery, and tension between Marcus and Bryan, and I would love to read more of Bryan’s story. There is a heartbreaking scene involving him that really gives a glimpse into his tortured soul.
But Love Resolution is truly Marcus and Avery’s story and Mankin really delivers on the intensity between the two characters. All in all, a very enjoyable story about the world of rock and roll, filled with lots of very memorable characters.

Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are all part of the Black Cat Records trilogy using the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare combined with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock ‘n roll industry.
When she is not putting her daydreams down on paper, you can find her traveling the world, sometimes for real and sometimes for pretend as she takes the kids back and forth to school.
