review to come.
Great intro to the series I really wish Kyle would ve had his own full length novel I wanted way time with him than the novella allowed for But I m happy just to have gotten this brief look into his past I was instantly intrigued by his good guy persona with bad boy looks, and totally sided with him as far as the undeclared battle of the exes goes How could you not want to be with him I was convinced Alexis had to be crazy not to want him But then the whole ugly truth regarding the breakup unfo [...]
Pretty good and short It was a heck lot of cheesy too lol but it works for Kyle and Alexis same name as me
Villians Complex is competing at the college Battle of the Bands and Kyle Cross is nervous as fuck because the bassist of his band is nowhere to be seen Keyboardist and peacemaker, he knows the best way to get her there is to, you know, actually go get her.Whom he did not expect to find, however, is his old flame and only love Alexis Monroe What he also did not expect is for him to need her help to track his bassist down.Though the story was kind of foreseeable, it was pleasant There s some obvi [...]
my link textI did this all out of order First I read the second book in the series More Than Comics , then I jumped to the fourth book More Than Once , until I finally went back to the prequel I m just glad that I finally got around to read it.From the little we got to see of the band in More Than Comics, I already loved them, but here I really appreciated Kyle for the first time I absolutely loved him, and man, he was funny Such a delightful and complex character.I already knew I would love Bri [...]
3.5 starsI was offered a copy of More Than Exes for review but I initially hesitated, I wasn t sure I had the time to fit in another review book, but I also thought this came after More Than Music, and was worried I would miss out on something as my memory is kinda hazy When I looked into it I realised it was set before More Than Music, but that it was also a short read, one that I could fit in easily between books, after this revelation I quickly got my copy of More than Exes More Than Exes fo [...]
Sometimes we easily judge bad boys with their looks, like when they have tattoos and piercings Kyle Cross has that but his personality isn t He is a good and respectful guy Sometimes he s awkward, unlike his brother Jared who is confident, bad boy rock star Kyle dated girls, but he couldn t get over with his first love, Alexis They broke up because their worlds won t complement which broke his heart One day, Alexis returns after to rekindle her relationship with Kyle for the second time around T [...]
I did finish the whole short story.It s actually 85 pages on my e reader It was a cute second chance romance involving a Rocker ,the girl that got away, His Manwhore of a Brother Their Band The story was filled with angst riddled emotion, The characters had some great sexual tension a few of them get involved in some really great fight scenes.The only thing I wanted was a longer story felt to rushed out to me , but I know this is a series so maybe their relationship will be revisited.Have to Def [...]
I had the pleasure of reading this novella early and I m trying my hardest not to stick my tongue out at everyone who didn t This story It s steamy and funny and sweet At first glance, Kyle is a badass rocker which, he is but he s also just a good guy with a huge heart that s been dented along the way I loved getting the story from his perspective And then there s the heart denter, Alexis Also badass She s not afraid to go after what she wants, and even if you re not sure she ll get it, you ll r [...]
Actual Rating 3.75 This was a great read The story was great and I liked learning about Kyle, Jared s brother The story is set before More Than Music I also liked learning about why Becca left the band The characters were great and likable The ending was interesting I can t wait to More Than Music Overall, an enjoyable read.
Nice prequel novella.
Kyle s band is in the battle of the bands in LA when he runs into his ex, Alexis who broke up with him 3 years earlier.
I received a copy of this book in exchanged for an honest review Since reading More Than Music I ve been highly interested in Kyle He played a fairly heavy role in the first book but to actually learn his story was a much better experience for me More Than Exes is told entirely from his POV and it was wonderful There is not enough NA written in just a guy s POV It s really refreshing when I do find one.More Than Exes is the story of the Battle of The Bands that s mentioned numerous times in More [...]
More reviews at losttobooks After being pleasantly surprised by book 1 More Than Music earlier this year, I just had to request this from NetGalley This time I went into reading it knowing the author s style and everything about the band, because this is a prequel, so it didn t surprise me I knew I d enjoy it, and that s what happened.More Than Exes is a short novella that is based around one night before The Sound competition you read about in book 1 I thought it gave a nice, additional scene t [...]
I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review You can also read this review and others on mynameisrioblog Elizabeth Briggs brings us back into the lives of Villain Complex s members in this super hot novella about Kyle, Jared s younger brother The reason I enjoyed this novella so much was because it was short and stripped off unnecessary drama Kyle and Alexis were great characters and I think Elizabeth Briggs did an excellent job layering them in the short length of the story. [...]
I absolutely loved Elizabeth Briggs debut, More Than Music, so I jumped at the chance to review its prequel novella, More Than Exes I was looking forward to reading about Kyle s romance, and the book did not disappoint Briggs writing style is so addictive Kyle is this rough looking tattooed rocker with the personality of the sweet boy next door, so it was a lot of fun to hear from his POV.More Than Exes is a novella, so there s a pretty quick pace to both the general story and the romance, but i [...]
More Than Exes by Elizabeth Briggs left me in awe of such a beautiful story, yet concise beautifully written to a tee I had the please of reading this novella a little before the release date and I was blown away by the charm and heart that the prequel entailed The story follows Kyle keyboardist in an upcoming band that captured most of our hearts in More Than Music This prequel novella takes place in one night, as preparation and playing at Battle of the Bands leads two hearts finding each othe [...]
Such a fun read I loved getting to know Kyle and Alexis after getting a glimpse of them in MORE THAN MUSIC If you haven t started this series and you love sexy and fun new adult novels, you NEED to get to it Kyle is not a bad boy and it is such a refreshing character to get to know Alexis knows what she wants Their attraction and history makes this novella shine.The band aspect is entertaining and you can totally feel the music through the pages.I know I cannot wait to read
ARC received via NetGalleyThis was a great little book It was written really well and read easily Although it focused on one character, you got to know a little about the band and other band members so as a starting point for the series it did good.The only thing I didn t like was the length of the book It was too short for my liking Kyle was a great character and I would have loved for his story to have been longer.
My thanks to NetGalley and the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review I really loved Elizabeth Briggs first foray into the writing world, and when given a chance to get my hands on a copy of how Kyle and Alexis got together and their past.Elizabeth has a wonderful writing style that really draws you into the story, making you feel every emotion and living the story as if you too were there with the characters.I cannot recommend this author enough.
3.5 StarsPrequel to Briggs s More Than Music, this novella focuses on the band s keyboardist and the girl who broke his heart Sexy with dashes of humor and angst, the book follows a predictable path as two young lovers reunite amidst the jealousy and insecurity of a new band struggling to make its way to the top Definite chemistry is felt between our protagonists and I enjoyed the backstage look into the battle of the bands contest.
Very good, sweet, short story Definitely intrigued to read on in the series.
Great short romantic read This book had to do with second chances It had plenty of angst and romance.
Review coming soon
Review to come.
I loved this The entire story is in Kyle s perspective, which was different and enjoyable Usually when I read a book solely from the male perspective it s a companion novel retelling the story after I ve already read the female s side It was short but sweet Kyle is definitely book boyfriend material The bad boy looks with the good guy personality The entire story takes place in one night which for a short story was also great It let the author delve into Kyle s thoughts and feelings without skip [...]
