Book Review: Behind the Lens (Boys of Fallout #2) by Cassandra Giovanni

Behind the Lens (Boys of Fallout #2)

by Cassandra Giovanni 




Natalie Scott’s life is simple with no strings attached. As a band photographer, she’s made metal music her life, and life on tour means no relationships.
At least not ones that last and that’s the way she likes it.
She only has one rule.
Don’t date or otherwise screw around with the client.
But she never said anything about love.
Brent Andrews knows Natalie’s rules.
And he’s about to make sure he’s an exception to them.
All of them.
Even ones she doesn’t know she has.


My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:


I’m not falling. I feel like I’ve landed.


When he sings, parts of me shift back into place, and somehow, I feel like the holes in the fabric of who I am come together.


Because ever since I met you, every day I’ve felt like I’m a better person – like I’m actually living my dream, when before I was just walking in someone else’s.



My Review:


Behind the Lens was a high angst, music based, melodrama/NA romance. I longed for a more balanced emotional tone but I found enjoyment in Ms. Giovanni’s observant and descriptive details of the various characters’ nervous mannerisms and behaviors. As excessive tension is just not my cup of tea, I was extremely impatient with Nat to find her voice, although I was entertained by Ms. Giovanni’s bantering band mates, as the levity was a welcome respite from the characters’ stresses. I was languishing and near despair but held out for that highly desired HEA. And I earned it.

About the Author

Cassandra doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character’s stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England with their dogs, Bubski and Kanga.
Cassandra Giovanni is published by Show n’ot Tell Publishing based out of Connecticut, USA.
