Books Stay Until We Break OMG, I loved this book! This is the second book in Hub City series, but they feature different couples and can be read as standalone. However, I don’t recommend it, since the stories really build on top of each other. In Stay Until We Break the band is on tour, it’s still 1995 and the tour isn’t as glamorous as you would imagine. The band are sleeping where they can, traveling in a van, barely getting paid.Sunny, Emmy’s best friend, is acting as the tour manager. She has had the biggest crush on Cole, the bassist, for as long as she can remember and decides to make her move. When Sunny comes onto Cole she is completely wasted and Cole refuses her. He thinks Sunny deserves better than a drunken night, but this leads her to believe he isn’t interested. What may sound frustrating or like miscommunication isn’t in the slightest. This really just builds this slow burn that had me anticipating when they would finally connect. Sunny only has the nerve to tell Cole how she feels when she is drunk and Cole feels like he is taking advantage of her. The give and take had me hooked. This story had so much more heart and emotion. Both Sunny and Cole’s story and situation broke my heart. They can appear to be opposites at times, but still have similar struggles and fears. I loved how this book just brought the feels!Then there is the story with the rest of the band and the music. I am not huge on rockstar books, but this series is so freaking fun and addictive. I love this band and how they interact together. I love the camaraderie and love they have for the music and each other. This series keeps getting better and better, as I loved this story even more than the first. I can’t wait for the beefcake’s story and I hope it features Claire!ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. Teaser created by me with stock images purchased from depositphotos..

This author lets her wild passion for books and music bleed into the pages of this magical novel. A book that transports the reader to an adventure, you'll be hoping it never ends... Sonia AKA Sunshine is Emmylou's best friend and the recently appointed tour manager for SOFT (Stars On The Floor). For a long time Sonia has had a huge crush on Cole, the band's bassist, but he has a bad reputation as being a man-whore, so she knows there's no possibility of ever hooking up with him, but little does she know that Cole has been fantasizing about her too. Cole has had a tough life. Bad parents and poverty, forced him to make bad choices in order to provide for his little sister. But music was his ticket out of the bad path he had been on. From the moment Cole held a bass he knew what he was meant to do on this earth, to create music. Being a part of Soft has given him a chance to do that and also he's found his own little family in his band mates. Being close to Sunshine every day, has been hard for Cole. He can hardly control his desires for her, and even though he knows she feels the same way about him, as he does about her, his future is not very bright, he has big responsibilities and a huge commitment hanging over his head that prevents him from moving forward with Sonia.A different city every day, amazing new experiences filled with music and constant close proximity, between Cole and Sonia, will create the perfect setting for these two characters to fall in love. Maybe they'll give into their passion while they are on the road, but what will happen once they get back home and back to reality?Reading a Merci Brown book was love at first chapter for me. Her ability to reach inside my heart with her words was something special, and The Hub City series has everything I love and crave from a book. I felt like I was another member of the band and I too was touring the country playing music. The realness of the story transports the reader inside the pages of the book. You'll feel the love and the music, loudly. If you are a music fan, a romance fan or just a fan of reading awesome stories, please read these books, the only thing you'll regret will be not having read them sooner.

  2. The only problem with having Cole McCormack as your chronic masturbation fantasy is that he s everybody s chronic masturbation fantasy and he knows it I have been waiting for Cole and Sonia s story ever since I ve read Loud is How I Love You a few months ago I knew their story was going to be good and hot I expected it just based on the chemistry they had going on What I did not expect was the gut wrenching, emotional punch it brought It slayed me I did not expect that Stay Until We Break starts [...]

  6. I think the thing that makes these Hub City books so good is that they feel so authentic I was approximately the same age as these characters during the time period in which these books are set I sometimes feel like I am actually feeling that energy I m certainly feeling the angst, and the insecurities, and the general turmoil of life and love and rock roll It is clear that Mercy Brown knows from which she speaks and because of that, it s nearly impossible to not get caught up in her storytellin [...]


  7. Slick s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsWhen author Mercy Brown s first book Loud Is How I Love You was released I loved it and I especially loved her candor about life as a member of a club band hoping to make it big Stay Until You Break follows the same band, Stars on the Floor or Soft as they are known , as they take three weeks off in the summer from college and jobs to tour clubs From that standpoint, I loved this book from the romance angle, it fell somewhat short for me This [...]


  8. Originally posted on Slow Reader s Blog As long as you re still dreaming there s always another moment that comes along Maybe an even better one Oh, to be young and free and living the dream.I m jealous Stay Until We Break is a story about a tenacious group of dreamers who stubbornly pursue their dreams while making crazy, reckless, stupid, and inspired decisions along the way In book two of The Hub City series, Mercy Brown took me on a fun ride through music and time, and though I might not hav [...]


  9. Have I mentioned how much I love rock music That I love going to concerts and being in the crowd and just experiencing it all That s probably why books about rock bands are some of my favorite ones What I love about Stay Until We Break is that it is not about the biggest band in the country like a lot of them are This one is about a band trying to make it big To get there music out there and find their place in the world Cole is the bassist for the band, Stars On The Floor SOFT , sometimes the b [...]


  10. While I wasn t sure if I d connect to this story at first, I m happy to have been proven wrong Cole and Sonia s book is pretty great overall, particularly because we got romance and tour shenanigans all at once I gave this one a 3.5 3.75 stars.


  11. I don t know what it is about Mercy Brown s way of telling a story that makes me fall so in love with every aspect of it, but if this is the kind of book she keeps putting out, I ll be a happy camper.I can t decide if it s because it takes me back to the time period that I was in high school and makes me nostalgic or if it s because the characters and their interactions feel so raw and real PS, I wrote this line before rereading my review for LIHILY and seeing that I used this exact wording then [...]


  12. I m officially a Mercy Brown fan I loved her debut Loud is How I Love You so I was eagerly waiting for the release of the second book in the companion series Stay Until We Break was so much fun to read Sonia Grant wants a career in the music industry and starting out as the tour manager of her best friend s band seems like the best place to start A bonus is that just maybe, her crush on bassist Cole McCormack will go somewhere, and when they connect the first night on tour, she s planning on thr [...]


  13. Update Review link is now live Loud is How I Love You was a super debut for the author, so when I was offered the ARC of Stay Until We Break, I was all grabby hands, thank you very much, runs and jumps on couch, starts reading immediately.Again, another engaging story line and great characters, but I do believe I loved this one a tad tiny bit There was just something about Cole and Sonia They definitely tugged on my heart.Lot s romance, humor, and smexiness Some angst, super bantering This ti [...]


  14. When Stay Until We Break first hit my Kindle, I have to admit, I had still yet to read the previous book in there Hub City series, Loud Is How I Love You So one weekend, I bit the bullet, sat myself down, and devoured both books within two days And I have to say, book 2 was by far my favourite of the series so far.Book 1 gave us Emmylou and Travis, but Stay Until We Break gives us Sonia Sunny and Cole In case you don t remember from LIHILY, Cole is the bass player of 90 s indie rock band, SOFT, [...]


  15. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorite new adult series The characters are likable and yet it the drama isn t overly done It s believable I enjoyed the characters especially Cole and how he was torn with being in the group and starting a real life to help put his sister through college It had just the right amount of humor, sex and honestly didn t want this to end I m looking forward to reading of Hub City books in the future


  16. Full review to come but my quick thoughts on this one is, it was a cute contemporary NA that gives readers a glimpse into life on a tour and it s not always fun and games These characters took their sweet ass time getting their shit together and because I spent a huge chunk of the book frustrated that both Cole and Sunny actedeir age, I was a bit disappointed Still, the book turns around and I enjoyed the dialogue I will definitely be reading by this author.3.5 out of 5


  17. I liked that Cole pays attention to details, is that Cherry Coke this time The boy knows his Lip Smackers He should by now, with all the making out we ve done I loved Cole he was a great guy he and Sonia really complimented each other I liked this book, I don t think there s been a book Mercy has written that I haven t liked.
