Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, New Adult
I love rock band romances, so was excited to get this but....somehow I'm at odds with all those five star reviews I can see as for me this just wasn't a five star read. I hate hate it when that happens :-( * sigh *
There were parts of the story I enjoyed, that were well put together and fed me into the band aura, that made me feel I was there with them living the dream. That was the actual touring and writing/creating music and lyrics, it felt very realistic.
I love when a book does that, actually incorporates the whole band ethos, rather than just having the lead character be a band member but not actually writing about the scene in a bland, generic way.
I liked the band members, and could feel the sizzle between Levi and Brooklyn right from the start.
I just felt the first half dragged though, that nothing really happened except Brooklynn joined the band, and we met her sister.
The postcards from the title didn't really play a part until the second half, and I'd a pretty good idea early on who was behind things.
I didn't really get a sense of danger and suspense from the read, didn't ever really feel there was any real issues here, and when things did take a turn for the worse it was kind of quickly wrapped up glossed over and tidied up, leaving Brooklynn and Levi free to follow their hearts. That just felt too slick, too easy and I'd have liked a little more reality here.
Sorry, a well written read that many will love,but just an OK, nothing special, read for me.
Stars: Three, well written story which didn't play out as I'd hoped.

Famous rock ensemble Stone Butterfly need another member. Brooklynn is famous for her amazing vocals and is quickly snapped up by the band. Where she meets legendary heartthrob Levi there is instant chemistry. As the charming and oh-so-handsome lead singer of the group, Levi is used to getting his way with women but faces quite a challenge winning Brooklynn's heart. He's determined to convince her he's not the usual rocker manwhore or player.
The group itself is interesting I loved the idea of changing members to increase the sound. Stone Butterfly reminded me of a smaller version of The Polyphonic Spree (who I'm a big fan of) and I loved the composition elements of the plot.
With Levi's position comes a lot of attention and fame. This also means MANY groupies, some of whom seem determined to come between Brooklynn and Levi.
Oh Brooklynn! I honestly wasn't sure what to make of her. I respected her dedication to her sister and her loyalty, but her constant back and forth did annoy me. I did find her a little wishy washy at times. Don't get me wrong, I did like her most of the time but just wanted her to display a little more sass, to kick some butt.
I'm not going to discuss the title because it's a MASSIVE spoiler. I will say the mystery element kept me guessing for a while and I liked the unexpected twist. For me the interaction between Levi and Brooklynn seemed a little awkward at times. I kept wondering whether people really do say some of the things they did (yes Levi I mainly mean you) but I did enjoy their story. Plus perhaps this is more about me being a stuffy Brit than anything else.
Another Postcard is a dramatic, musical story which will make you want to find your own rocker and join a band.

There is nothing more passionate then figuring out a riff, nailing a solo, or coming together as one with music. The energy these characters gave off was palpable through my screen. I felt their excitement, passion, and comradery as if I was right there with them. It is the same energy you get when listening to your favorite “pump up song.” It is like seeing your favorite band live for the first time. Nothing compares.
Levi. Well, lead singers have never been my thing but this guy is sweet, smooth, and sexy on and off the stage. To me, he is the heart and soul of the band though everyone has their place. His persistence with Brooklynn made me smile and giggle often in the beginning. His passion and love for her after “catching” her is what did me in.
Brooklynn is one of those characters that you hope you could rise to be if put in her family situation. The woman is tough as nails and an inspiration. Her resilience towards Levi in the beginning is nothing short of honorary. It is always so beautiful and satisfying to see someone like her break down the walls and let someone in because she is someone who needs it the most.
This book will take you on one rockin’ adventure with tempo changes that will lead you to an amazing build up and climax. This is a book you don’t want to miss out on!
The tumultuous lives of rockstars were never better told than in this book. You get such a good feel for who they are, what they experience, and how they feel about not only their music but also preforming for their fans. It's like you're inside their heads, feeding off their energy, and coming out of the book with a better appreciation of the musical process.
Levi and Brooklyn's story gives you a touch of everything. Humor, suspense, steamy sex, exhilarating musical highs, and twists and turns that will leave your head spinning. Their story wasn't an easy one but there was beauty in every minute of it.
I went into this book blind with no expectations and no idea what I would be getting. As always Elle gave me a book that I devoured. A book I couldn't put down. A book I'm still raving about a month after reading it. This is by far her best work to date. You can tell she poured her heart and soul into this book and it made for one hell of a read.
I loved Brooklynn Hawk and Levi Matthews. Brooklynn has been a steady behind the scenes force in the music industry and her talent is insurmountable. She’s purposefully stayed out of the limelight, but with an opportunity to tour with one of the best bands in the business, Brooklynn wants to take the chance to finally fulfill her own dreams. One dream may include Levi as more than the lead singer in the band, but as the leading man in her life.
Sigh. Give me just a minute to get over the swooning here. Levi and Brooklynn made such beautiful music together, I couldn’t get enough of them. I loved all their interactions as they started as friends and then moved onto lovers. I adored how they worked so well together—making music together, their sexy times together. *fans self*
Each member of the band was amazing too! Simon, Matteo, Cooper, and Sasha… man, I’d love to hang out with all of them. Ms. Christensen made me feel as if I was in the room as they rehearsed and wrote music. It was awesome, so darn awesome. I loved the twist too . . . completely unexpected and gripping. So hard for all involved.
I cannot wait for more for the members of Stone Butterfly. Count on me to be the first in line for book two!
When Brooklyn is given the chance to go on tour with Stone Butterfly, she moves out of the proverbial dark to finally live her dream. She wasn't counting on falling for the lead singer and he definitely didn't see her on his romantic radar. When they succumb to their passion, it's SCORCHING!!!! However, with this heat also comes a mystery that could derail their lives before they can explore having a forever
This mystery just added to my enjoyment of this incredible book because it kept me guessing and I was so enthralled with the story that I actually felt like I was on tour with the band. Levi is one determined man to get and keep Brooklyn no matter what...how swoony is that?
It's also very clear to me that Ms. Christensen has an extensive background in music because her details were spot on which I truly appreciate in a book that's dealing with the music world. If it's not done correctly, the whole story just doesn't flow. Well folks, this one was done so correctly that it deserves a Grammy!!
Make sure to pick this one up because it's a MUST READ book by Ms. Christensen!!!!
