    Caleb and Leo were soulmates. That was clear from the beginning of this sometimes difficult - but always beautiful - story. The record label their band signed with controlled them to the point of forcing them to hide their love, which was more than the young men, especially Caleb, coul...

    I cried. Like an actual tear rolling down my face cried, that doesn't happen often to me but this book, oh my word this book - so many feels! It's difficult to review it without spoiling the journey so I'll just say it's nothing like your usual "rock god/musicians" romance, it's sor...

    Terrible Things was an interesting story. While I was reading it, the story felt familiar to me and realized that it was very similar to a true story, with some different twists and turns. Then I told myself that, as long as it wasn't a biography and there is an HEA, I was good wit...

    Chase and Leo are soulmates, but 5 years ago Chase disappeared without a trace. When he comes back, will Leo be able to forgive him and move on? I really enjoyed this this. I like that there were little interlude chapters that gave the background story without resorting to flas...

    I want to preface this review by saying that I am incredibly biased when it comes to music in books. Reading/writing is my first love, and music is without a doubt my second. That said, this book was amazing. Leo and Caleb?s love story was an emotional rollercoaster from the very beg...

    I have to say that this book really got me in the feels. I wasn't sobbing uncontrollably, but I definitely had numerous times of tears leaking out of my eyes and a hurting heart. Leo and Caleb were together for 4 years and were in a band together. Being forced to stay in the closet ...

    This was one of those fantastic, grab-you-by-the-feels, powerful, raw, intense, gritty, emotionally charged, awesome, exquisitely painful, and slow burning second chance stories that suck you in from the very first page, shatter your heart into a million pieces, run them through the gr...

    4 Stars I started out really loving this story and for the most part, I did enjoy it, but what didn?t work for me was the progression of Caleb and Leo?s rekindling love. It took way too long and by the time Leo and Caleb finally got back together, and Leo forgave Caleb, I was al...

    I was a little nervous going into this book because I've been gutted by this author before and I wasn't wrong. Caleb and Leo were so explosive! I will admit that I wasn't sure I wanted Leo to forgive Caleb. It seemed like it would be too much. In the end, after I cried my tears right a...

    I really enjoyed reading Terrible Things and riding the emotional roller-coaster that was Leo and Caleb's relationship. I'm a person who feels emotions very intensely so this book for me was hard and heartbreaking and joyful. It has a very slow build up but I found that I didn't mind s...

    2.5 - Let me just start out by saying I didn't like Caleb and found him to be a self centered douche. This book irritated me the whole way through. It does have a lot of the feels everyone else commented on, but I didn't see them as the good kind. This whole book seemed to be about how...

    3.5 / 5 Stars I am afraid I am not a very forgiving person, especially in certain situations. Which I guess it was the main reason I couldn't connect with the characters. I liked the idea this book gave and I was sure I was going to love it. It didn't happen that way, sadly. I l...

    4.5 Stars There?s not much that?s better than trying a new-to-me author and being thrilled by what you just got to read. Rock star/musician stories are a favorite and Beth Bolden has penned a fresh, original theme in the sub-genre. Leo and Caleb were teen lovers, each other?s...

    Terrible Things is a complex and riveting romance. As the first book in Beth Bolden's Star Shadow series, I am already in love with this series. Caleb loved Leo so intensely that it ruined him. He lost himself and everything he loved. Now he's healing, sober, and back in the band. B...

    I will never be able to listen to Coldplay again without thinking about Leo and Caleb?s story. Read this book and you will understand why. I must admit that the first few chapters of this book disappointed me. I didn?t like the fact that Caleb forced the group to reunite due to ...

    This is an amazing story and I love everything about it. I was fully engaged from the first page until the last and I could not put it down even though it made me cry. It is beautifully written, very emotional, full of hope, heartbreakingly sad, full of life lessons, deals well with di...

    Terrible Things was such a wonderfully emotional read and a great story of second chances and forgiveness! Five years ago Caleb walked away from his band mates and his love. Caleb burned those bridges and, even though I came to understand his reasons, I had trouble liking him until fur...
