Refrain (Rockstar #9)
#LoveIsLoveAs a child, I trusted no one.Then I found my best friends.They gave me a family and saved me from a life of abuse that still has me messed up.Then one of those best friends captured my heart.Lincoln, tough yet tender, a walking contradiction.He loves me too—flaws and all. He’s the most patient man on the earth and understands my PTSD. What he doesn’t understand is why our being intimate makes me feel “dirty”. He’s not one of the men who abused me and he’d never hurt me. I know this. I believe it. Still, the “dirty” creeps in even though I know what we do together is anything but.He’s here now and he’s going to stay. It’s time for me to talk to someone professionally.I need to shed my unhealthy past in order to have a healthy future with the man I love. If I don’t, I just might lose the best thing that’s ever happened to me—and there’s not enough therapy in the world to get me through that.REFRAIN is an adult m/m romance with multiple POVs, real life struggles and battles, abuse, new life, and tragedy.

    Omg this book, there are no words.This book was a long time coming and has a lot of people judging/making assumptions before reading.Stop, just stop.Personally I'm a non M/M reader but having read every single book by this author, I knew she would give Ethan and Linc the justice they deserve, no matter what hole they prefer. She (the author) did not disappoint!Love is love, time to embrace that. So much happens in this book, you'll laugh & cry, can't say much else without ruining anything so Omg this book, there are no words.This book was a long time coming and has a lot of people judging/making assumptions before reading.Stop, just stop.Personally I'm a non M/M reader but having read every single book by this author, I knew she would give Ethan and Linc the justice they deserve, no matter what hole they prefer.

    Ethan and Linc Omg!! This book was definitely worth the wait!! I couldn’t put it down. I love how we got to see the strong relationship between Ethan and Linc and the unconditional love they had for each other. I love how the finally got a chance to focus on their relationship and make it even stronger. I also loved seeing the points of view the others had when it comes to Ethan and Linc because their lives are all so closely intertwined. Kiki and Kadi steal the show when they are in the scenes.

    I guess I will be skipping this one as well. I thought I would be able to get back to this series since I skipped Xander, but I don't do MM romance. Guess it's time to drop this author.

Ethan has many issues from his childhood, that he trying to move forward, and I love how you can see his journey, trying to process the whole ordeal. Linc, his partner is a tough MMA fighter, that loves hard and very protective of his family. As always with Anne books, you see different POVs. I for one are thankful for those, so you can see what’s happening in the family. This book has answers to some situations that were left open in her past books, and setting up for the future also. There was a couple of things in this book, people had issues with. First that Cage said, “fans were disappointed that Linc and Ethan came out gay.” I’m not sure why that was a problem, as it still happens today and it’s very realistic. As you know with a very popular rapper came out this past month, if you listen to his interviews, you still have the trolls and judgmental people of the world. Also it happen with the characters in the book, Lucy and Jess. Women didn’t care that he was married or in love, they were still cruel, trying to hit him up. So why would it be different from a M/M relationship? The next thing was the Spanish in the book. I for one do not know a lick of Spanish, but it didn’t bother me, because now you felt how Xander felt, which was comical to me. I told you in my last review I had theories, and I’m so glad I was wrong, but there are still more books to come so...🤔I’m looking forward to the next books. I’m oh so close to Kennedy. I can’t wait.

    This book is a little bit of a mess to be honest. I found the writing to be stilted, and despite it being part of a frankly too long series, I wanted and needed background in how Ethan and Linc got together. I wanted the butterflies stage, the newness, the exciting part of first being together. We got none of that.The timeline when taken into account of all the other books is all over the place, as are some of the details. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Dave one of Lucy’s favourite reporter This book is a little bit of a mess to be honest.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Dave one of Lucy’s favourite reporters in Rockstar 1? If not this specific one, a name change would be wise.I also found it hard at times to distinguish POVs. Again, there’s several in this book, some of whom I felt aren’t needed and add to the messiness.There’s also Spanish in parts which aren’t entirely explained and led me to skimming them. I have no problem with a second language, but only if it’s made clear what’s being said.I love MM books, but unfortunately for me, this didn’t feel like a MM book. It felt like a normal MF book but with two guys. Isn’t that good? I hear you ask. It is, but MM usually, for me, have something special and this book didn’t. I also wasn’t keen that Cage mentioned fans would be disappointed both Ethan and Linc are gay. Seriously? What the hell?All in all, I wanted to like this book. I hoped it would get the series back on track, but it just adds to the mess it’s grown into. And don’t get me started on the randomness of the Joey situation... a little lost for me.

I adored the love and emotions between them and this has to be one of the more deeply written relationships that I’ve read and Ms Mercier knocked it out of the park, it was that good. I could go on all day about how beautiful their relationship was, and the typical way that the entire family had not only their backs, but each others.Refrain is beautifully rounded out because we also get a chance to catch up with other family members in all their idiosyncrasies and foibles. To see grown men quake hilariously in the presence of a small person is just one of the witty ways that Anne Mercier brings together all sides of family life and occasions. Good and bad. And then there is the bad. Always, always a guaranteed great read from this author so it’s an easy 5 Stars from me!

There is some back story but honestly with how these two are together, you can feel the love, acceptance and strength pouring out of the pages without getting into the specifics.There is so much natural flow throughout the story. Ethan and Linc’s emotions are so raw and real that at times they will break your heart. But, for every breaking moment there is one full of laughter and fun that is typical of our Rockstars.There is no turning back once Ethan and Linc step out and how things play out will leave you wondering what in the world is happening and how is everything going to turn out. Be prepared, Anne is on a mission to let the characters speak their piece and this story will shake you to the core!

Throughout Refrain we get multiple POVs, not just Ethan and Linc. Which I loved. It’s always fun getting to see certain scenes and situations through specific characters eyes. It’s also a great way to get more from our series favorites without taking too much away from the main characters. But the thing that I enjoyed most about this book was the increased presence of the Russo familia and their mafia storyline. It’s always just been there simmering under the surface of this series but by the end of Refrain it is very clear that the Russo familia/mafia is going to be playing a much larger role as the series continues. I for one am ridiculously excited to see this happen. I can’t wait to see which direction Anne takes it. I know it’s going to be intense, emotional and all kinds of crazy.

    I've been waiting (along with many others) for the latest entry to Anne Mercier's Rockstar lineup and let me just say.... I. Am. Not. Disappointed. This will contain no spoilers, but it's stated up front (and you can tell by the cover), that this is an M/M romance. It's not for everyone and I'm sure this was a difficult subject to write. It is the author's first foray into this genre. That being said, if you read enough, you know the characters decide how their story will be written.

It is the author's first foray into this genre. That being said, if you read enough, you know the characters decide how their story will be written. A lot of loose ends are tied up in this book, so you do need to read the rest of the books first for this to make any sense at all. Once again, the author delves into topics that many don't like to discuss, but for many, they find these books cathartic. And while she's tying up these loose ends, she's adding some new ones. The author's note at the beginning warns that this book is not all happiness. As I was reading, I kept waiting for the shoe to fall. For that one thing to happen. And when it did, it was not at all what I was expecting.Bravo Anne!!! I cannot wait to for the last two main books and one last Xander novella in this amazing series. Anne Mercier got me hooked on Avenged Sevenfold and independent authors and I thank her for that.

Now there isn’t much “jumping in the past” type of events in this story to tell the backstory of these two, but You can get the idea of what going on. They have to go through some hard times, to finally come full circle, and be happy. You also get to see some POV from other characters... which I’m glad to see. The family, or Famiglia, is holding strong. I love each of these characters, and love seeing them grow. I do recommend Refrain to read. It’s a book that gets you in the feels. You want to laugh, cry, rage, and many other emotions. Looking forward to reading more. Good job Anne Mercier.

They help each other to work through their demons and skeletons, and come out on the other side with a better understanding of what their love means to each other. This book took me through all of the feels and it kept me guessing from the minute I started it.

The fact that nothing shakes that foundation is amazing, yes There is outside problems but it doesn't affect the love they share. Ethan working through is issues with a therapist and actually communicating was nice to see. So many books glance over that men have troubles that may need more help too.

Anne did a wonderful job of tying everyone in in a way that does not confuse you nor does it take away from Ethan and Linc. This book was well worth the wait! It has everything you need plus some.

    Just when you think it can’t get any better or more shocking here comes Refrain. It was refreshing to catch up with our beloved Rockstars and so much is going on in their lives. Linc and Ethan... 5 alarm fire. This was a smoking hot read. That ending though. My mouth dropped open and stayed like that for a good half hour. What a book!

    Whoa...I'm in shock. People who have followed this series from the beginning know that $hit can and does happen. The lives of our Rockstars have never been easy or without hardship but this book...The highs and lows were so powerful and the ending had me in tears. ANNE Mercier, I'm awaiting the next book and hoping you pull off a miracle.

    This book covers not only the struggle a M/M couple would have coming out in general but also the struggle of someone as “connected” as the Familia. It keeps you updated on what’s going on with everyone in CFD but does not take away from Ethan and Link in the slightest. This book holds up to the rest of the series and I cannot wait for the next installment from Anne.

    This book was phenomenal!! I could not put it down! I cried, I laughed, I cried some more! The ending....just no words! Did NOT see that happening! Cannot wait to see what Anne comes up with next! I love every single book in the Rockstar series but this one is probably my absolute favorite! I love Ethan and Linc! And I also love how the other characters are added in! Brava!!!

    GreatAnother amazing installment in this series. I found this author by accident one day and have loved every thing she has wrote. This series is so well written, you feel like you are a part of this world. You feel the love,the anguish, and the humor. Thank you so much Anne for bringing you imagination to us.

    Loved from beginning to end, really couldn't put it down, I had seen a few comments saying that they didn't expect the ending to be like it was, well OMG neither did I what a shock it was. I have read a few books in the MM genre but this one outdid all the others, just so romantic and Anne has done it again 5* plus

    Refrain is a M/M story about Ethan and Linc. Let me say that Anne has outdone herself. Ethan has always struggled with his past and here he gets to work through his demons with Linc at his side. While their story is told, there are many side stories, one of which literally blows your mind and ends with a cliffhanger. Loved it ♥ Refrain is a M/M story about Ethan and Linc.
