Review Because Of Luke by F.X. Scully

Hey Addict's sorry I have been MIA for a min. My laptop died on me and I just got it. So I on my dorks laptop until my laptop is shipped back to me. I haven't forgotten about you all I have been posting on my FB blog page if you haven't followed me on FB here is your chance Here, but I have been busy reading new books to share with you all. This first book I requested from NetGalley so I will be doing more reviews from there along with the ARC request I have recieved. Hopefully my laptop and I will be reunited soon so that I can share all the goodies I have read but first let me get you all updated on this latest read.

Because of Luke(Book 1 in the Lewiston Blues/Black family Saga)

F.X. Scully

Release Date
Feb 28, 2014


Music, love and sibling rivalry…all Because of Luke.

Three years ago, Shannon was a wild child. Parties, boys. You name it, she did it. But she's changed and the only way to truly turn things around is to finish college and hop on a plane to…anywhere else. Until an unexpected encounter throws her off track.

Sheila’s been covering for her big sister for as long as she can remember. Now it’s her turn. But her rebellious plans don’t include small-town fun. She’s got her eye on something better—a group of budding rock stars and a summer-long tour. 

In the middle of the sisters lands Luke, a determined college student who’s pretty sure he just met his soulmate. But loyalty to his big brother means leaving her behind to go on a three-month tour with his band. Desperate to get over the girl, he soon becomes entranced with the groupie who’s come along for the ride only to find he’ll have to make a tough choice—and not without breaking some hearts along the way.

My Review

4 stars out of 5

Where do I begin with this one. I'm still reeling over the ending my goodness what a rollercoaster I just got off of. I wanted to message F.X on facebook and say "What The Hell Lady" lol. I just did not see that coming(I actually did but I was in denial) Wholly Shit!!! I though this book was going to go one way and it totally went the other. The plot line was written excellently and the fact that this story takes place in the 90's is also a bonus. 

The main characters in BCOL are Shannon, Shelia, Luke and Ross. Shannon and Sheila are sister while Lucas aka Luke and Rosco aka Ross are brothers.  As with the name sake of the title this book revolves around Shannon, Sheila and Luke as the book is told by their points of views. Most books only have one or two points of views. I admire F.X with the multiple points of views and how she keeps everything tied together and not confuse you because of the different POV's going on in the book. This book had me hooked when I first started reading. F.X really know's how to keep someone invested in reading. Like I said earlier my emotions were all over the place. I don't want to ruin the book for anyone but I will tell you that Sheila can be a brat sometimes especially in the beginning. Shannon was a wild girl gone good and is trying to do the right thing. She has a good heart. Luke just wants a regular life and not the one his brother wants for him. Luke feels he owes it to his brother so he just goes along with things and him. I can't wait to read book 2 which is titled Black Out to see where everything goes from here. This book is a must read for those that like unexpected plot twist and a truly emotional ride. 

About the Author
F.X. Scully loves romance, but she doesn't write your typical Happily Ever After. Because let's face it, in the real world, it can sometimes take a lot of angst and pain before you get there. And some of us never do. But since most of us pick up books to escape the real world, her stories don't lack hot boyfriends and sexy encounters. Neither will she leave you completely heart broken, sobbing into a tub of ice cream. Rest assured you'll be on a roller coaster, but you'll be glad you went along for the ride. 

F.X. is the author of TWO THOUSAND 3 (November 2013), BECAUSE OF LUKE (February 2014),BLACKOUT (April 30) & BLACK ROSE (June 30).
