      This one was prettyfor meI never really could get in to it. I didn't feel the story or something was more just reading what the characters felt. Not to mentionis story is a love triangle. Love triangles are definitely hit or miss for me maybe I just wasn't in the mood. IDK. None of the characters just really did much for me. The story centers around Warren "War", Bryan "Bullet" and Lacey "Lace". War and Bullet are in a band called Tempest, along with Lace's brother Dizzy and two other band membe [...]

      Okay so where to start with this review HOLY EFFING CHRIST ALMIGHTY! Okay now that I have that said I have to say that Michelle Mankin totally ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF with this book. Holy rock and roll bad boys! I can't even think straight as I am remembering some of the things that went down. Man I mean I was so into the book I did not hear or see anything but War, Bullet, and Lace for 8 hours! I love me some rock and roll stories bad boys and the girls who fall for them but this is so much more. I [...]

      This is the new spin off series from Michelle Mankin's Black Cat Record series. If you love a good love triangle, some angst, a bit of steam and rock and rollen you will enjoy IR. Since high school Bryan "Bullet" and Warren "War" have always been best friends and Lace has always been War's girl. Even though Bryan has been her protector since they were kids, he's always loved Lace and unbeknownst to Bryan, Lace feels the same way. Now years later Bryan and War are in a band, Tempest, and are maki [...]

      Holy WOW! Michelle Mankin has delivered an irresistible read with Irresistible Refrain! It's no-holds barred about drug use/addiction and all its negative effects. But it also offers hope for second chances for love and redemption. Bryan 'Bullet' Jackson has the world on a string. As the bad boy fantasy of many women, this hunky, tatted up lead guitarist for Tempest can have any woman. And he's had many. But there's only one he's ever really wanted to keep. The one that fits him like the final p [...]

      I honestly didn't think it was possible to enjoy a "rocker book" more than I enjoyed the three books from Michelle's "Black Cat Series".but the first book in the Tempest Series has given it a run for its money!! Bry and Lace's story was one that I couldn't and didn't want to put down. I will warn you, the subject matter is intense and emotional it's not for the weak of heart. The turmoil that Michelle puts her characters through is torturous at times, but as always, she rewards them heavily when [...]

      Wow!!!! This book is such a dark, sexy, heavy, emotional and moving read. Let me start out by telling you that Irresistible Refrain takes you on one crazy journey! The book follows a rock band named Tempest. You get to know each person in the band eventually and I really liked that aspect of the book. Michelle Mankin did an amazing job with all the characters in this story! BRAVO! I loved them! The book begins with you being introduced to Lace Lowell. Lace has had a very tough life. I really fel [...]

      Growing up together in the harsher parts of Seattle, Bryan always had Warren’s back and vice versa. As much as they could they tried to keep their heads down and stay out of trouble but one wrong decision almost lands both of the boys in juvi. With nothing to lose, War decides rather than bringing them both down he took the fall for their actions. Ever since that day Bryan knew he was indebted to War. He accepted this freely and never hesitated to give in to his bestfriend in all things up unt [...]

And it is absolute torture to see them together.Lace has always been in love with Bryan. Ever since she was 5 years old, she knew she wanted to marry him.

      One of my favourite things to read about is Music , I am in awe of not only the hunky musicians but also I love to read the behind the scenes of the industry as it fascinates me on how someone who can have so much money , fame and all the girls in the world can lead such a horrible and miserable existence. The other thing I loved about Irresistible Refrain was the fact that the main character's name was Bryan , for those who know me they will catch the reference. In Irresistible Refrain , it sta [...]

      This was my first Michelle Mankin book and let it be known it will not be my last. I love rock stars, love triangles, and dual POV so helllloooo I LOVED Irresistible Refrain.Irresistible Refrain follows Warren, Bryan, and Lacey and the band Tempest in which Warren and Bryan are members.Bryan is every woman’s dream. He has hot tattoos, a body to kill for, and knows how to bring women to their knees by the talent of his fingers – fingers he uses as the lead guitarist. He can have any woman he [...]

      By far my favorite novel of 2013! Michelle put her heart and soul into book one of the Tempest series. Irresistible Refrain is full of raw emotion. The way Mankin portrays the ugly side of life is pure talent! I wept, I laughed, and wept more. I look forward to see what see has instore for the series!Tempest is a group of rockers from Settle. You may recognize them as the opening act to Brutal Strength (Black Cat Record Series). Bryan, aka Bullet, is battling with himself as his best friend and [...]

    16. Anas AtticBook Blog on said:

      I got this whole series on audiobook from the author. It's a uniquely narrated book in that it has male and female narrators who interact. It is more like a play than the typical audiobook. It was a little dark for me, and I need to love my heroes and heroinesbut I can't fall in love with characters who are shooting up. Having a son who is a young touring musician makes this even a little harder to read.I've put it aside for now, but I would like to try again. Just not for a while.It's a DNF for [...]

      I beta'd this book and I am not giving ANYTHING away. I have loved ALL of Michelle's books but THIS is seriously her best yet. In this book you get to see the gravity of all of her writing, complexities of characters, passionate feelings both good and bad and of course rockstar atmosphere to the extreme.

    18. Donna on said:

      Hated it. Can't read about heroine with the hero's best friend shooting up and having sex (while the hero accidentally sees them through an open door - ick!). Not for me. I don't care if they do end up together in the end. He's monumentally stupid, and she is TSTL.

      5 Angsty Electrified Guitars for Irresistible RefrainI'm not going to sugarcoat it, this is, more often than not, not a pretty book. It's gritty. It's angsty. At times it's downright ugly. But it is also wonderful. And definitely irresistible.Bryan and Lace have a beautiful history in the midst of too much ugliness. But when the 5 year old daughter of a junkie tells her brother's best friend that she thinks he is Prince Charming and is going to marry him one day.well, it would take a blacker sou [...]

      I want to be sadI always wanted to read theses series, but never knew which one to start. So finally I pick one. Not bad way to start. I hoping for a real tear jerker, but this one wasn't quite there. I think I will be loving this series.

    25. Renee on said:

      This was tough to read at times but at some others it was sweet and kind Moving on to book 2.As for the book, yes it was great. The characters were really good for me in their real factor. What I loved was that they all grew up in the same low income areas, fought to stay alive and didnt get fame and fortune thrown their way. The author does an absolute service to the reader in the description of drug use, showing the consequences, and the basic cause and effect. I think I liked Dizzy and his si [...]

    26. Naughty Mom Story Time on said:

      A solid story about life amidst rock & roll fame as well as friendship forged in the early years; however, I wasn't able to connect with the characters on a level that immersed me into the story. Instead of living it with the characters, I was reading it. The flashbacks started off pretty early and I felt like I was bounced around a bit, but about halfway through the story picked up and kept me in. Lacy is torn between two men who have been best friends since middle school. She loves them bo [...]

    27. Jeanie V. on said:

      Really well written, gritty and dark and honest and real. It was a little long but that's because the author didn't spare any important and relevant details. There was no "fluff" and I absolutely appreciated that in this book.

    28. Sue Sparks on said:

      I liked it mostly because it was different, many authors seem to shy away from drug use during the love story and this one didn't. Flashbacks of how Lace and Bryan's relationship started were great, definitely made me want them together even more.

    29. Blushing Reader on said:

      2.5 stars. The characters were all over the place and I spent most if the story trying to put all the pieces together from the multiple flashbacks and different POVs. It was confusing and frustrating at times to read. I won't be continuing with this series.
