    Note: I suggest that arospec readers avoid reading the epilogue. For the most part, I loved this book. And I had a lot of trouble with the epilogue, especially with regard to the aromantic representation. I want to explore these aspects of my reading experience in detail, so this is...

    Release day review posted at Sinfully. Twisted Wishes is a band on the rise. Singer and band leader Ray is overwhelmed with trying to make sure the band is doing well and that he?s not letting down his friends/bandmates. He is doing what he can to shelter them from the demands of ...

    Oh man, this was one sexy, kinky ride! While also being super sweet, watching these two together?! There's so much positive kink and consent here and I fucking LOVED it. That's how it should be! It's a bit of a slower burn, but once these two start playing . . . oh, yes, things ge...

    This romance has a lot going on. The characters are layers, complex, imperfect, and very much themselves. Zabo does a great job as usual of creating such human heroes with glory and darkness, self awareness and struggle. Ray shines with talent and caring and grit. Zav's fierce ...

    Thank you very much to Harlequin - Carina Press for providing a copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review. Oh gosh, Syncopation by Anna Zabo was just incredible. I don't think I can fault the book in any way. But first, a definition. Syncopation: the quality that mu...

    Oh goodness, I love band romances, and I loved this novel. To me, this had all the best parts of other band romances: The Trouble and The Love Song of Sawyer Bell. Ray is the front man for the band Twisted Wishes. Immediately before the start of the novel, he had to kick his drumm...

    Updated with link to nail art related to book: Syncopation nail art I requested this book before I really knew what it was about. Then I was a little unsure over the aromantic aspect because let's face it, I read romance for the "I love you" at the end. That being said, I was so sa...

    4 Stars! I love a good rock-star book and although I struggled with this in the beginning, I ended up really liking it by the end. Ray is the lead singer of Twisted Wishes (loved this band name) along with his best friend Dominic, and the statuesque goddess that is Mish. Ray has...

    This is my first read of Anna Zabo and is a rockstar romance. Twisted Wishes is an up and coming band that is taking over music industry by storm. We have the lead singer-songwriter, Ray who is a total mess. Actually he is a very nice guy, responsible, hardworking and he is very passio...

    4.25 stars from me. Good start to a new series from the author. Rock stars, a little BDSM, conniving band managers and great band members. Happy for Ray and Zavier [strange spelling...]. ...

    4 Stars! Syncopation is rock star romance with two amazing protagonists and a bunch of really amazing secondary characters and set in a beautifully glamorous world. The book is entertaining and really captured my interest right from the first page. Ray and Zavier are two well c...

    This one didn't work for me. And I think it's more my fault than the book. I was a bit impulsive requesting this one on NetGalley. I saw rockstar and Anna Zabo and hit request. Not quite realizing there were going to BDSM elements, and a bit heavier ones at that. On top of that, on...

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. 4.5 stars Syncopation is a book that I expected to love, and while I did love a lot of it, I also can?t give it the full five stars I was expecting to give it when I...

    Listen, I wanna lay down and just think of how perfect this book is. Yes. It's perfect. It's got an incredible cast, a compelling plot that kept me on edge in the best ways, a beautiful partnership, awesome representation of D/s dynamics and above all made me feel so good and happy and...

    This is an m/m rockstar romance. It's got some bondage, domination, and a little sadism. There's angst. It's not quite as angsty as Just Business. Ray is gay. Zavier is pansexual, kinky, and aromantic. Trigger warnings that I can think of behind the spoiler tag. (view spoile...

    I had a hard time getting into this story, I felt like it started slow and didn't really pick up. I really liked reading about an aromantic character, it was my first. I can't really judge the execution of it because I just don't know much about the theme but I'm always down for re...

    All right, this got long, so full commentary is on my Patreon. A disclaimer: I am not usually a contemporary romance reader, especially when it is heavy in sex scenes. I picked it up as an aromantic reader because I knew Zavier was a pansexual aro and had heard good comments. This i...

    I do have a soft spot for rock star romance, so finding one written by Anna Zabo thrilled me! They captivated me with the ?Takeover? series and Anna brought their skills, as well as their style of kink, to this literary music fest. Zavier is making the leap from symphony orchestra ...

    This is an atypical "review", because I don'treview adult contemporary romance - I don't know the genre enough, I read very little of it, as it's fullof casual microaggressions against my own existence.I'm an aromantic reviewer, and I think everyonecan guess why I avoid some ge...

    This was pretty fucking great. Coincidentally (or nor) it also had some pretty great fucking. It has Ray, the gay lead singer MC with synesthesia and his enemies to friends to partners relationship with Zav, the aromantic pansexual drummer. Both other band members are also queer. ...

    Stopping at 25%. I'm interested to see how it plays out with the two heroes but I am so not a fan of the manipulative/bullyish manager as a plot element. I might pick it up another time, we'll see. ...
