    We pick up right where we left off in Revelry and OMG what a crazy and wild ride! Its Levi Quinn?s turn and I could not wait to dive right in! Feeling like he lost the best thing to happen to him, can he find a way to move forward? Well life is about to throw him another curveball! ...

    I really wasn't prepared for Levi's particular brand of angsty pain. Sigh. Reading Closer about did me in. Thank God I had some tissues handy, because I needed them. At the start of Closer Levi is feeling the pain of not being chosen by the woman he loves. Instead, she's chosen the ...

    ***AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW *** 5 Forgive Yourself CROWNS LEVI broke my freaking heart at the end of Revelry, like took a knife and flayed my heart open with one simple utterance over the phone. Ever since that moment, I?ve been dying for Carmen Jenner to write his story, to...

    ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review Closer by Carmen Jenner was a sexy, intriguing, raw emotional read that completely blew me away and left me speechless. This book was brimming with such an intensity that readers like myself were hypnotized by Jenner?s ...

    **5 Angry French Girl Stars** This is book two in the Taint Duet and is not for the faint of heart. This one took a lot of guts to write. Carmen Jenner is a one click for me. No matter what and this is part two so it was a must. Damn, it even took a lot to read it. This was dark, ...

    [image error] ARC Received for an honest review This book should come with a warning - take out shares in Stolichnaya Vodka and Kleenex before reading, as you are going to need both. Carmen Jenner has absolutely wrecked me with this story. After the way book one, Revelry e...

    3.5 stars I have to start by saying that this book is a lot different than Cake, haha. Levi is taking it hard that his bandmate is with the girl he loves. It's clear that there is some history there and Levi thinks that alcohol can make it all better. That is until he meets Brielle....

    4.5 Stars I have to say that enjoyed this book more than the first one (Revelry). You definitely need to Revelry before this one to get a true concept of Levi's pain and anguish (plus it's a duet, so duh, LOL). Some say it can be read as a standalone, but I think it won't have th...

    Closer is book two in the taint series and it is Levi?s story. I have been eager to read Levi?s story since reading book one in this story a while back. I have to admit, I had a soft spot for Levi in book one and I wanted Ali to pick him. I am so glad that she didn?t. Although my...

    5 out of 5 "I hate authors' Stars Sooooo CLOSER picked up right where REVELRY ended. I strongly recommend that you read REVELRY prior to diving into CLOSER because I feel like it would be a little confusing in the beginning or maybe not confusing so much as it's easier to follow hav...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports. Levi Quinn has it all-money, groupies, a panty-melting smile, and he is well endowed. At least, he had it all. Until an angry redhead joint the Taint world tour and turned his life upsi...

    "I'm safe, because you cannot lose your heart if you no longer have one." Levi, Levi Levi...sigh. Your broken heart broke my heart. ? Not only can I not resist a sexy rocker, a broken one is even more irresistible. Closer pulled my emotions to the surface and then stompe...

    I can't believe that I FINALLY got this story, as truly it has seemed like FOREVER for it to come out! And before I go on, I must say that Closer is the second book in the Taint Duet, so YOU MUST READ Revelry (Book 1) FIRST, or you will NOT understand all of Levi's angst! Now on with t...

    Multiple Reviews Below 5Stars I eagerly dived into this second book about the rockstar band, Taint and I can honestly say I was enthralled with this incredible story. Levi is a self absorbed rockstar, that is a bit harsh but he really is! He?s just lost the girl he loves to h...

    I think it?s been well over 15minutes I?m trying to begin writing my review for closer and I?m a little lost for words. I don?t know how to begin, I don?t even know how to make justice to the book. I?ve been waiting for Levi?s book ever since I finished Revelry! I fel...

    Closer is the second book in the Taint duet, and boy does it hit you in the feelings! This story opens on a very hurt Levi, who lost the girl to his band-mate and copes with his heartbreak by being very drunk, offensive and irresponsible. He has pushed his fellow band-mates to the l...

    A rockstar with a whole lot of baggage. This cover completely drew me in along with the fact Levi is a typical but troubled rock-star and having read reviews for the previous book along with the blurb I was eager to read his story. I haven't read the previous book and it di...

    Never mind, I'll find someone like youuuuuuuuuuu I wish nothing but the best for youuuuuuuuu I swear as if Adele wrote/sang this song for Levi, the Axe-Man of Taint! The foot long guy who stole our hearts in Revelry, the douchebag smirking Bastard was just too much to handle ...

    Closer (Taint #2) By Carmen Jenner 4.5 Stars Closer is book 2 of the Taint duet. This book can be read as a standalone. I would however, recommend reading Revelry (Taint #1) first to get the full effect. Levi is broken. After having the best MMF relationship with his band mate...

    Take everything you think that you want from a 5 star read and throw it away because when Carmen Jenner is driving the bus, she makes darn sure that she?s driven the wheels off it ? this is sooooooooooooo much more than a mere mortal could even contemplate. Looking for a hot Rocks...

    This book! Levi broke my heart!! This book leaves off after Ali leaves both Levi and Cooper behind, figuring staying in their relationship will only end badly. Yes this Rock Star series has an M/F/M relationship and for all that is holy it?s so amazingly Hot??????...

    I love that Carmen Jenner had the balls to write a story that is so unique and emotionally charged. Closer was not what I was expecting it to be. I expected it to be a fun, hot rock star romance and it was a romance, and there was hot sex and humorous moments, yet that's not the focus ...

    5 Tu Me Manques Stars I have to say I was a bit affraid about Levi's story (between Close and Revelry there was a few hit and miss books from Carmen Jenner for me). But I guess this book is just like fine wine, it had to take it's time to be amazing. "Maybe a man broke my heart by...

    5 You are Missing From Me Stars! Closer picks up pretty much where Revelry left us, only from Levi's point of view. It was after Cooper had left for Sydney to get Ali back. Levi had my heart breaking in the first few chapters, I honestly thought this was going to be a disaster...

    Why do I do this to myself??? I don?t understand. I always call authors emotional sadists because they just love to put us readers through the ringer. But, in reality, I?m just a book masochist. I knew this book was going to be hard... I freaking knew it. The ending of Reve...

    This is the second half of a duet. I really liked this book. I felt both love and hate for Levi, as he behaved both selfishly and stupidly in the beginning. However, once Margaux and Dog, and finally Brielle, entered his life, the love overtook the hate. And Brielle, I absolutely loved...

    Here?s the thing: I didn?t know about this series before signing up for this opportunity. I know shame on me, because this duet is seriously amazing! I read Revelry in order to be able to review this one and I?m so glad that I did! (My review for Revelry is coming soon!) Close...

    Holy crap, Carmen. What did you just put my heart through?! My emotions are all over the place and I don't think I could ever write a review that will do Levi justice. After reading Revelry (the first book in the Taint duet), I remember feeling like I may have just taken drugs myself....

    ?We were dancing from the second I first laid eyes on you, or at least I thought we were. Turns out I was just over here dancing on my own like a tool.? Closer is the conclusion of the Taint duet. Nothing is fairer than, what began with Cooper to end with Levi, after all the sto...
