Talon by Carian Cole
Talon & Asia
A Rock God with an 11″ Cock, some beers and some smoke, sign me up! This book has done me in. I just finished it yesterday and I can’t stop thinking about it. Every aspect of it! This book has so much emotion and so much grit that you will find yourself laughing through tears. I’ve always been Vandal girl because I love those long haired, disturbed Rock boys, but Talon has swooned me and has now become my favorite. What an awesome read!Talon Valentine is my hero and every way, shape, and form. I loved everything about him, even the bad parts and believe me they are plenty. Talon is your typical rock star. He’s got long hair, he’s tattooed to the hilt, he’s got an enormous package (*wink), and he’s got a reputation to back all that up. I kept thinking about the movie the Banger Sisters and how those two old has been groupies had “The Rock Cock Collection.” I’m pretty sure Talon would have been at the top of that list! Although he thinks his life is complete, when he enters into an experiment to marry someone he’s never seen and doesn’t know he has another thing coming. This experiment forces him to look deeper than the surface and find the real man that’s always been there, it just took the right woman to bring him out. I have to admit that a combination of the old Talon and the new Talon is probably damn near perfection. His foul mouth and sharp tongue melted my panties and my heart.

Asia is as cute as a button an extremely smart and talented, however god damn it did that woman pissed me off. I get that she had a past that wasn’t so pleasant, but for god sakes does everybody have to suffer because of it? She entered into this experiment hoping to walk down the aisle to a man she created in her mind that she believed would be her perfect match. Imagine her revelation when her imaginary clean-cut hardworking family man turned out to be a long haired tattooed rockstar! I absolutely loved the chemistry between Asia and Talon. It bares being said that I was a little crabby about Asia making Talon wait for so long to have sex. Jesus Christ she gave ME blue balls!

The supporting character cast is vast and beautiful. I loved all the cameos from Lukas, Storm, Asher, Evie, and the list goes on. I seriously doubt that Asia and Talon would have gotten as far as they did without the help of their friends and family. I wish I could be adopted by the Valentine family. What a close-knit group they are. Always there and always supportive. Asia’s bestie Kat was pretty cool too. Kat was Asia’s driving factor in staying on course and keeping her chin up. We all need friends like that. Now, for my favorite supporting character… Princess Pixie the dwarf kitty that melted the Rock God’s heart and mine too! I love that Carian always incorporates some sort of animal in her stories. I’m one of those people that loves animals more than humans most days and it’s always a nice touch to have them written into some of my favorite stories…

So, if you asked me how I liked this book, I’d tell you to get your asses over to Amazon, B&N, or wherever you buy books and start this tale today. I am in love with the rock star hippie tarzan and the little jelly bean who tamed him. The dialogue flowed with perfection, the storyline is played out with expert precision, and the pacing is flawless. I have been in love with Carian Cole’s writing since she wrote Storm (Book 1) and I will endeavor to be the best little “fangirl” I can be for her!

5 Rock Stars!!!.

Author Bio





I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.

A girl’s senior year in high school should be a special time. Ayma’s expectations are not very high. She is the daughter of a control-freak mother and a father who has been absent for the past three years. She is ridiculed by the popular kids in school because of her unfortunate name and the way she dresses. Although she’s nearly eighteen, her mother controls every aspect of her life, including what she wears, who her friends are and even what foods she is allowed to eat. The only bright spot in her life is her friend Tabby. Until she meets Colton.

Colton is unexpected. He’s gorgeous, popular – the guy all the girls want and the one all of the other guys want to be like. When he begins to pay attention to Ayma, she doesn’t know what to think. Things like this just don’t happen to girls like her. One obstacle after another is thrown into their path, but they can’t deny what they feel for one another. Their new-found love will be threatened by secrets from their past, challenges in their present and a future they can only dream about. Ayma struggles to find an identity apart from her mother’s controlling nature while Colton faces the results of an arrest that took place the summer before his tenth grade year.

Can they find love and happiness? Or will they be destroyed by events beyond their control?
