Inked Avenue Reviews… “Background Music” by J. R. Rogue

//Background Music by J.R. Rogue//

You know those novels that slowly seep into your skin, burrow their way into your bones, shatter your heart and warm your soul? Well, Background Music by J. R. Rogue is one of those novels. This is the first book I’ve read by Rogue and to say I am now a fan is an understatement. I. AM. OBSESSED! I love reading novels like this because they are the ones that never leave you, they are the ones that make you cry, make you laugh, and wish for a love as passionate as the one filling the pages.

Background Music Teaser - FinalRight from the start this novel breaks your heart but slowly stitches it back together again. The angst and the air crackling moments completely took my breath away and the sheer intensity of Rogue’s writing brought me to tears. Kat’s story is not for the faint of heart and brought back memories from my own past that helped me connect to Kat on a deeper level. And Reese… My goodness, Reese! I love him. I loved seeing him grow into a confident strong man that was willing to put others first and own up to his mistakes. The two together were like fire and ice… hot, intense, and heartbreaking. They were truly meant for each other, however, they had to weave their way through the baggage from the past that threatened to tear them apart in order to find who they truly were and be together knowing that nothing was going to break them apart.

There are not enough words to describe how I feel about this heartbreaking yet beautiful novel that made my breath catch, my heart race a little faster, and had tears streaming down my face. I love this book and can’t wait to get my hands on Rogue’s other works.

“You’re more than background
music for someone else’s life.”

It’s the message that will
change everything.
The message Kat Roberts
receives from a man she’s never met.
The message no one else
is supposed to see but her.
The message that leads
to the greatest violence
against her body she will ever know
