    The latest and almost last in the Found in Oblivion series from Quinn and Elliott, sensualists, masters of rock romance, had me glued to my eReader. From the very beginning there were twists I did not expect accompanied by a touching love story I desperately longed for.

    On the surface Warning Sing’s drummer, Malachi Shawcross, cares for no one but himself. The truth is he cares. Deeply. Especially for his brother, his niece, and the woman he saved but doesn’t remember him doing so. The irresistible woman who hates him. The sexy guitarist who plays in front of him every night while he pounds away his frustrations on his drums. Until one event changes everything. Until the night he makes a split second decision and saves her once more and nothing will ever be the same.

    Richelle (Elle, Ricki) Crandall has had one too many second chances, but this time she’s going to take advantage of the offer made by the man who saved her. To be her addition. It’s as dangerous as it is tempting, especially when her road to recovery is long and their band is still being threatened. Can she keep herself on the straight and narrow and convince Mal she’s he’s as worthy of love as she is?

    Getting my hands on a book by this writing duo is always a treat because I know I’ll be getting a wonderful balance between a great plot, complex main characters, visits from characters from past books and other series and a love story that will evoke a wide range of emotions.

    I had waited so long for Mal to get his happy ever after. It seemed like it would never happen given his utterly grouchy disposition 24/7. But tough exteriors usually hide soft hearts and his had been unknowingly taken hostage by the lovely Ricki. It was no surprise he had a great capacity to love, but what did surprise me is how many people he actually cared for even if he’d never admit it. He’s protective, thoughtful and sexy as sin. It was delightful to see how much he loved Ricki and absolutely endearing to realize just how much he wanted her to love him back.

    Neither Ricki nor her also famous brother Nick has an easy start in life, but she made some colossal mistakes and for the past couple of years she’s been trying to keep her life in check until the night that left emotional as well as physical wounds. For a recovering addict, trying to drown out and numb the pain, fear and trauma without some chemical help seems impossible until the man who seemed to never care about anyone helps her realize everything she stands to lose and gives her a different way to cope.

    Besides this being a rock romance and a sort of office romance since the hero and heroine work together, I loved that these two were civil at best, completely antagonistic towards each other the rest of the time. So watching these two build a relationship from enemies to lovers was certainly interesting. Their start was rocky (pun intended), but once Ricki saw beyond Mal’s façade their emotional bonds grew exponentially. They were so deserving of love and a happy ending, I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the next.

    Raw Rhythm is book #6 of the Found in Oblivion series by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott. It is a standalone contemporary rocker romance. Told from both points of view and has a happy ending.

    We finally get the much awaited for story of Mal, the guy who always had an edge to him and would distance himself as much as possible from the rest of his family/bandmates. At the end of the last book of this series we were left with a tragedy that left Mal and Elle behind in New York and both were trying to come to terms with what had happened.

    We finally get the much awaited for story of Mal, the guy who always had an edge to him and would distance himself as much as possible from the rest of his family/bandmates. At the end of the last book of this series we were left with a tragedy that left Mal and Elle behind in New York and both were trying to come to terms with what had happened. Elle, not knowing if she would ever be able to play guitar again and as always struggling with her addictions because it would have just been easier that way to deal with everything now felt like she owed Mal her life. These two seemed to be at each other’s throats all the time and knew how to use words that would cause the most damage to the other and always there to see the continuous rotations of men and women they each went through. So what a strange situation to now be in with only the two of them to help each other through this nightmare.

    Would these two actually find some solace in each other or would the past be too much for them to overcome? There are surprises that leave you wondering if this tragedy was an accident or was there something else going on? These authors did a fantastic job yet again giving plenty of steamy sex with a heartbreaking and yet heartwarming story that won’t let you put the book down. For those of you who haven’t read this series and love rock romance, do yourself a favor and get them now. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series.

    I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.

    As we headed into this highly anticipated series finale, there were many loose threads that needed to be tied up. Most critical was the welfare and future of the band and its members after the shocking end to the previous book. Possibly related to that was the resolution to the mysterious mishaps plaguing the band and Ripper Records.

    As we headed into this highly anticipated series finale, there were many loose threads that needed to be tied up. Most critical was the welfare and future of the band and its members after the shocking end to the previous book. Possibly related to that was the resolution to the mysterious mishaps plaguing the band and Ripper Records. Last, but certainly not least, finally learning what makes sexy drummer Malachi Shawcross so dayum grumpy and a reluctant part of the group, and how in the world he and fellow bandmate Ricki “Elle” Crandall were going to stop sniping at each other long enough to find their HEA together. It promised lots of fireworks and drama. And it delivered both in spades, along with much laughter, steam, and tears. A whole bucket’o tears for this reader.

    Except for lobbing insults back at Mal, Elle was quiet and kept to herself in the previous books. I didn’t have a real sense of who she was, but thought she might take a submissive roll to Mal’s alpha. Oooooh, I have never been happier to be wrong. She gave as good as—if not better—than she got, and it made for some really fun times.

    Grumpy, growly alphas and I rarely get along. I was so curious about Mal’s secrets that I was able to overlook most of his gruffness. Plus Elle did such a marvelous job of keeping him in check his surliness was more entertaining than frustrating. By the epilogue he had mellowed enough that I may have felt a little thaw in the area around my heart.

    Much of the book focused on Elle and Mal, so we got to know them well. With their familial and professional connections in addition to the series wrap up, the storyline dictated there be appearances by many characters from this and other Quinn & Elliott’s popular series. Seeing the other cast members was exciting and also poignant. Particular moments with some of the family were absolutely hilarious.

    This series wrap up was as emotional as expected and funnier than I imagined. It hits you in all the feels, which is why I loved it.

    I never know exactly what to expect from a book by the writing team of Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott, I know I’m going to get lots of emotion, colorful characters, a hard fought love story, and time with characters from previous books. I also know that they have surprised me on a few occasions and they really did so in Raw Rhythm, to say I didn’t expect the way things played out to happen is an understatement and it is not a bad thing, in fact I have to give them kudos for the twist in this story

    I never know exactly what to expect from a book by the writing team of Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott, I know I’m going to get lots of emotion, colorful characters, a hard fought love story, and time with characters from previous books. I also know that they have surprised me on a few occasions and they really did so in Raw Rhythm, to say I didn’t expect the way things played out to happen is an understatement and it is not a bad thing, in fact I have to give them kudos for the twist in this story, one I didn’t expect and one that made for very entertaining reading. On top of that we got a fantastic love story between two people who have antagonized each other since they were placed in the same band, but we also find they have a bit of shared history and more than that when they fall, they fall deep and hard.

    Malachi (Mal) Shawcross has always put on an a$$hole front, but the thing is with characters like Mal is that I always feel there is way more to them than meets the eye and in this book we get to see a whole lot of what makes Mal tick. I wasn’t at all surprised that he fell hard, the broody ones always seem to do so, but I was surprised by how deeply he feels for not only Richelle (Elle, Ricki) Crandall, but for people he calls his grandparents and honestly everyone who he works with even though he’d never admit it. I loved the complexity of Mal and that underneath his hard outer shell lurks a sentimental, sweet man who wants nothing more than to be loved and to be seen for the man he is, not for the way the press has portrayed him in the past. He is loyal, thoughtful, protective, and most of all dedicated all qualities very few people see in him.

    Ricki Crandall has made some big time mistakes in her life and she has spent the last few years trying to not only make up for them, but to keep her life together so she never goes back to that dark place again. Following an accident at a show, she is in the hospital with a lot of damage to her body including her arm she uses to make a living as a guitarist in Warning Sign. She is scared, traumatized by the fact that one of her best friends lost a man she loved in the accident when she lived, and she longs to bury her head in the sand and forget it all which is behavior she can’t afford to repeat. When she spirals out of control the man who saved her life at the concert, saves her again and leaves her off balance and seeing him in a totally different light. Little does she know that for years he’s wanted nothing more than to be the one she needs, but he’s not sure he can go down that road again with a recovering addict.

    The complicated relationship between Mal and Ricki from being band mates certainly put an interesting spin on them moving on to friends and then more. There was no doubt after Mal moved heaven and earth to save Ricki at the event incident that he felt way more for her than just a member of his band, but he backed off to let her heal until she reaches out and then all bets were off. I enjoyed watching them build a relationship even when it was volatile at the beginning with both of their emotions running all over the place from contempt, to hate, to scared, to grateful, and more, but when Ricki began to see the man beneath the mask he always wears I was as entranced as she was. I’ll put it out there because I know people want to know there were several sex scenes and they were fantastically written and hot and that is all well and good, but it was the emotional journey that these two took that made this book so special. I was thrilled that the majority of their conflict came from outside sources and instead of letting it break them, it made them even closer which is always a win.

    Raw Rhythm had me run the gambit of emotions and it was a beautifully told love story for two people who so fiercely needed someone to be their champion and in each other they found it in each other. I loved this book!

    My most anticipated and now my absolutely of this series!!!

    As I’ve devoured each novel in the Found In Oblivion series, the one character that has always piqued my interest was Mal. Always so stand-offish and broody, I couldn’t help but want to get into his head and know more about him. His personality was the total opposite everyone else’s lively attitude and personas and Raw Rhythm gave me exactly what I wanted. I never would have guessed that deep down...and I mean REALLY deep down, he was a closet softy. It’s always the one roughest in the outside that tend to be the most sensitive, right?

    He and Ricky (Elle) were the perfect pair because they were complete opposites. She was so cheery in contrast to his broody and he couldn’t help but crack a smile when she was around. Throughout the series, they’ve had practically been frenemies. I mean, they were band mates and had to get along, but they were constantly throwing barbs at each other. But it took a tragedy for Molly to truly see what was underneath all Mal’s rudeness. And once she got a glimpse of the softy he could be, she and I were goners. I just knew I was going to love him.

    I just love all the characters in the Oblivion world so much! Hands down, the Lost in Oblivion and Found In Oblivion are my favorite rockstar stories!!
