4 1/2 stars and I shall explain my reason later.
The story of Lansing Lotte follows right after book 1 The Legend of Arturo King ends. Just so you know now, no you will not get any questions you had from book 1 answered in this book!
Lansing is the guitarist in The Nights, a famous rock band and best friends with it's leading man Arturo King. Following previous events that unfolded in book 1 Lansing has some dificult emotions to go through.
Lansing also seems to have women throwing themselves at him in this book!! Honestly, I know rock stars are known as "lady killers" but seriously! Come on women, stop inhaling the testosterone!
I'll be honest, I struggled with this book which is why I gave it 4 1/2 stars instead of 5. I had to reflect this in my review. It has several pov's and where it goes from one woman to another to lansing's thoughts on one woman to another to another It had my head spinning. Every chapter was about a different woman. This was the only bit I didn't like and I hate that I didn't like something about this book. It wasn't the story, it was just the way it was told.
Doesn't mean I don't think this is a fantastic book or that L.B.Dunbar isn't a fantastic author, it was just difficult for me to manage.
This is Lansing's story, told mainly in his POV - he's messed up and makes mistakes. But that's what I like about Lansing - he's not perfect, he's not the hero, and he has to learn from his mistakes and move forward. He has a revolving door of women. The band is in limbo. There's the missed opportunity with Guinie, from a few years ago, when he never made the call. It has left him with regret and wondering. There are parts of the story told from other's POV, and I was left wondering which direction the story would take - there's that revolving door of women - who would Lansing end up with?
I loved the ending - it was perfect. And I'm glad Lansing wasn't perfect. He might be a rock god, but he is human after all.
As for the questions I was left with at the end of Arturo's story? Well, his story is still not complete, there are still questions. I'm looking forward to reading Perkins Vale's story next, and seeing where LB Dunbar will take the Nights from here.
Another amazing book from this Author! I loved this book so much!!! I admit I fell in love with Arturo and because he is a greedy SOB, he doesn't want to let go of my heart, so Lansing is second, but he is a close up with Arturo ;)
This book is told from the first perspective, but we can also get glimpses of other people and the perspective is better, in my opinion.
The main character, Lansing, is supposed to be a hero, but his behaviour around woman is a mean and causing him to hurt them. Badly. And even thought he wants to avoid that he can't help himself. Most of the time I wanted to slap him, shake him and then kiss the pain away.... So you can see my conflict here. Normally I would hate a person like that, but the moments when he is all amazing? *swooooon*
There is so much I would love to say, but I'm afraid I will spoil the book, so it's better if you guys ju8st read it ;)
Amazing, well deserved 4.5 stars from me!!

Another 5 star read without a doubt, though I will warn readers that you won't get all your questions answered from the end of Arturo. I saw the author mention that we will return to Arturo and Guinie in the 5th book of the series, though there are some sightings within this one, and I imagine there will be in Perkins' and Tristan's tales. At first this may seem slightly disappointing, put that aside and get lost in Lansing. I think you will find, as I did, that you will find every bit as in love with him as you did with Arturo.
Lansing is known as "The Lady Killer", and it is easy to see how that happened as we journey into his heart and soul. Maybe all his kindred spirits are simply biding time until "the one" crosses his path. And just maybe "the one" could be someone other that who he has convinced himself was "the one." Get swept up in his discoveries about himself and the women in his life and all the messes he gets himself into over them.
Again, LB brings the King Arthur story seamlessly into the present. There is so much going on here, and I always try to avoid spoilers, but sink into this one when you don't have to be up the next morning, I found it impossible to put down and am already greedily awaiting the next release on June 26 (which happens to be my birthday - happy birthday to me!)
Again, for mature audiences only, for sexual situations. If you liked Arturo, you will love Lansing every bit as much.
The Story of Lansing Lotte picks up right after the first one finishes. It is told primarily in Lansing's POV but every now and then we get someone elses. I liked getting into his head and learning his thoughts on all that he didn't say. He is a very private person, even though he is in the public eye. He has his brothers, his band, The Nights and that is about it for his close friends. A few flashbacks in time solidified this point and how much his brothers mean to him. He does, however, have a revolving door of ladies all vying for his attention. This leads to the introduction of a few new characters in this book and at first it was a bit hard to keep up. However, as the story progresses and the intensity builds it was much easier to discern who was who.
I enjoyed Lansing's journey. He was torn between his missed opportunity and what he didn't think he could have. I loved and hated all of the back and forth. He put himself and a few others through some unnecessary drama with his actions. There were a few moments that had me holding my breath too. Thankfully, he came to his senses and made his choice, the right one, in my opinion. This woman brought out a side to Lansing that I hadn't seen before. A softer, protective and possessive side. He pulled out all the stops to prove his dedication to her and the future he wanted with her (sorry I'm not spilling the beans on who he chooses).
I also liked getting glimpses of Arturo at various points throughout the story. There are more questions there but I'm sure they'll be answered in time. L.B. Dunbar's writing keeps getting better and better as the series moves forward. She held true to formula of clever references to King Arthur and weaving modern takes on them. The blending of events from Arturo's book and the characters in Lansing's story was seamless. The cause and effect of it all was interwoven in a way that made complete sense and brought some things full circle. I absolutely can't wait to see where she takes me with the next installment of this series, Perkins' story.
I have to admit that, after reading The Legend of Arturo King, I was a bit leery of this sequel. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong.
For those who have read Legend, then you know that the end of the story was a bit of a cliff hanger. Well, in Lansing's book, some of the mystery is solved but not completely. Of course this book mainly dwells on Lansing and his life with The Nights. He's young, gorgeous, and has no money worries. His problem? Women! Although he does seem to bounce around from one woman to the next, you get the impression that he isn't really being a man-whore but rather looking for a life with the right woman. Of course, he has this thing for a woman he knows will never truly be his until they connect for one night of passion. From that one night, he realizes that she may not be the woman he thought she was. In the end, he finally figures out who this woman is but not before some seriously highs and lows throughout their "relationship".
----------End of SPOILER ALERT------------
I would definitely give this story a 5 star rating. The characters are well developed and the story flows smoothly throughout the entire read. Feelings run the gambit with Lansing including happy, sad, hurt, anger and passion. The love scenes are very hot and will leave the reader a bit breathless. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys passion, hot rockers, and intense emotion.
This is the second book in Dunbar's Legendary Rock Stars series, and you really should read The Legend of Arturo King first. It's not absolutely necessary because this story does provide pertinent background information that you'd get from Arturo's story, but it also provides some really big spoilers for Arturo's story, so it's best to read in order.
I loved this story, but I was pretty sure I was going to love it before I even started. I'm a fan of L.B. Dunbar's writing already, and I really enjoy Arthurian Legend, which greatly inspired this series. That's a recipe for success where I'm concerned.
The story is told in first person, but it switches between a few of the characters to give us a slightly broader perspective of the events. I thought this worked really well for the story making everything feel really personal, which makes it easier for me to connect with the main character, especially when he comes off as kind of a jerk for large portions of the story. Although Lansing is supposed to be this really heroic guy, his actions where women are concerned are flippant and obviously hurtful (to most people at least) but he does have his amazing moments too.
There isn't much more that I can say without spoiling the story, so I'm just going to stop here. If you like rock star stories and/or Arthurian legend, you will probably really enjoy this book.
Lansing has made some huge mistakes, and he takes full responsibility for them, but struggles through the darkness. In the end he finds his way to the light, which not only helps him but also the Knights as they wait for Arturo’s return. I can’t wait to meet all the members of the Knights and learn their individual story’s. But most of all I’ll be waiting to find out how Arturo and Guinevere story ends. I want to take time and thank L.B. Dunbar for sharing this story and her talent.
