Regretting Gabriel by Anna Brooks


Title: Regretting Gabriel
Series: Reason to Ruin #2
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Angsty Rockstar Romance
Release Date: January 9, 2020
He was the bad boy of rock-n-roll; cocky, short-tempered, and the
sexiest man I’d ever seen. I was just a librarian in a small town. He had no
clue who I was, but I knew everything about him. After all, he was the reason I
moved across the country.
I never thought he’d know my name, let alone whisper it while he held
me tight and made me forget about the agony of my past. He was my protector, my
reason, my calm before the storm… but nothing good lasts forever, and Gabriel
Hunter was no exception.

My heart has held a
place for him since I was fifteen years old. I never thought I’d actually be
friends with him, let alone friends who held hands.
When we get to the
library, I unfortunately have to unclasp our fingers so I can get my keys and
open the door. I turn to tell him thank you when he pushes the door open and motions
for me to precede him. “Ga—”
“Go.” He interrupts
me, and instead of arguing, I go in and turn on the lights. After I set my
purse beneath my desk, I stand fully and twitch at the shock of seeing him so
close. “I’m gonna take off. You done at six?”
“You don’t need to
“Cady, baby, I don’t
do anything I don’t want to. So stop telling me what I don’t need when I know
exactly what I want.”
My breath freezes in
my throat at the implication.
“So I’ll ask again,
are you off at six?”
Unable to form a
sentence, I simply nod.
And then he leans
forward, just slightly, and I jump when his hand slides through my hair and his
fingers cradle my head. His lips ever so gently brush against my cheek, and he
glides his hand out of my hair, down my neck, and halfway over my collarbone
before he lifts it again and cups my jaw, then runs his thumb across my lower
lip. “Later, sugar.”

Regretting Gabriel
Anna Brooks

Ya know when I first started this series, I knew that each book would feature someone different from the band ' Reason To Ruin '. So obviously, I started with Justifying Jamie, and I was NOT a fan. There was far too much that I did not like, but I am a person of reason, and always give others a second chance, and in Anna Brooks case... I AM SO DAMN GLAD I DID! Regretting Gabriel far surpassed all the expectations I had. Yes, I did give Regretting Gabriel 4 stars. The reason it was not a 5 star review from me was because of the abrupted ending. To me, it ended when I felt these characters had more to say, more to explain. One more chapter would have sufficed. Other than that, this story was fantastic.

From the very beginning of the prologue I was hooked. This author truly showcased how talented she really is. The emotions were heart felt. The dialogue was well thought out. The story flowed extremely well, and never one time felt rushed. There was not a million plots going on that had my head going warp speed. AND THESE CHARACTERS? They are to die for!! Gabriel and Cady both, are such unique characters in their own right. They are so different from each other in many ways, but share some amazing qualities that make them mash well together, which in turn made for amazing chemistry. Regretting Gabriel is an angsty type book, and Brooks made these characters go through it, I mean really go through it but in the end, atleast to me, it was so worth it.

Cady is one of the shyest heroines I have ever had the pleasure of reading about. She is a lover of books and music and she settles for comfort instead of happiness.

Gabriel is the bad boy of Rock 'n' Roll, the guitarist for Reason To Ruin. He enjoys the perks of being a rock star, and has the attitude to match. This hot headed rock star has more amazing qualities than what meets the eyes.

What happens when the shy librarian and the hot headed rock star find more in common than what they initially thought?
