Manster by Cari Quinn

Manster

I’m a rockstar on the run from the memories of my past. And pussies in palaces.   Record scratch. Rewind.   My name is Hudson Wyatt, and I raced cars until an injury ended my career. Now I pound the skins in Hammered, a successful rock band. But I still enjoy living recklessly, hooking up and partying all night.    Lately, I’m wondering if I'm missing something deeper, and...

    I have always loved reading Rocker stories and this one went beyond my expectations. This was one I really loved not only because of the chemistry that each character had but how personable they were.

    Wyatt and Piper are so made for each other. There is a proposition made, lessons to be learned and the mighty fall.

    Hunter Wyatt is the drummer for the rock band Hammered and he is anxiously waiting to get back on the road with his bandmates. One of the holdups is his bandmate and friend Owen and Piper Blackwell are waiting on their first child which will make his/her arrival any time now. A friend of Callie’s, Piper, happens to own a very unique café/coffee house and she was throwing a Jack & Jill baby shower for the expecting couple.

    Hunter Wyatt is the drummer for the rock band Hammered and he is anxiously waiting to get back on the road with his bandmates. One of the holdups is his bandmate and friend Owen and Piper Blackwell are waiting on their first child which will make his/her arrival any time now. A friend of Callie’s, Piper, happens to own a very unique café/coffee house and she was throwing a Jack & Jill baby shower for the expecting couple. That’s where Hunter and Piper meet and Hunter has fallen in love with her coffee even though he could live without all the cats she has surrounding the café. Hunter was also drawn in when the relationship uneasiness Piper showed grabbed his attention especially after Piper asked for his help to give her lessons which would help her with the opposite sex. Who was Hunter to turn down such an interesting teaching curriculum!

    Would these two be able to keep this a strictly teacher/student relationship and what kind of grade did Piper receive. This was a great rock romance in the Hammered series and I can’t wait for the next one to come out.

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

    RomCom lovers, this one’s for you!

    MANEUVERED is a lighthearted, fun, and steamy story featuring the guys & gals of Hammered, plus their significant others. The hero is drummer Hudson Wyatt, and the heroine Piper Lockwood, a friend of a bandmate’s wife. He’s about as far from a typical rockstar as one can get. But that isn’t unexpected since he’s a cool-headed, former race car driver. Piper has focused on building her businesses, so hasn’t had much experience with men. She is completely and

    MANEUVERED is a lighthearted, fun, and steamy story featuring the guys & gals of Hammered, plus their significant others. The hero is drummer Hudson Wyatt, and the heroine Piper Lockwood, a friend of a bandmate’s wife. He’s about as far from a typical rockstar as one can get. But that isn’t unexpected since he’s a cool-headed, former race car driver. Piper has focused on building her businesses, so hasn’t had much experience with men. She is completely and adorably quirky.

    Throughout, you never know what Piper is going to say or how Wyatt will react, which makes for many laugh-out-loud moments. I can’t recall the last time I laughed—okay, snorted—so much while reading a book.

    Callie and Owen, the main characters in Manipulated, have large roles in this story. I forgot how much I loved these two, especially Callie. She helps make the final chapter absolutely hilarious, and one of the best wrap ups I’ve read in a long while. I loved it.

    Maneuvered can be read as a standalone, but reading the first books in the series will make it more enjoyable.

    Piper runs a cat cafe called the Pussy Palace. You know from that name alone that this will be funny and irreverent and sexy, and it is. But it's more than that, Piper and Hudson are real, layered characters with a palpable chemistry that kept me engaged til the very last page.

    When Hudson and Piper meet at Callie's Jack and Jill baby shower, she's intrigued by the huge, hot guy with the expensive designer clothes and the cinnamon colored ginger hair. He seems a bit snooty at first glance, not taking off his mirrored sunglasses, looking down his nose at all her cats, especially Maya, the Siamese that has taken a liking to him. But, he can't help but be attracted to Piper. She's so different than the plastic women he's used to as the drummer in a famous rock band. And when she pleads for his help

    how can he possibly say no to this adorable, slightly crazy woman with her addicting hickory coffee and coven of cats?

    I loved seeing Hudson give Piper "lessons" in how to let go and indulge herself in sex and flirting. He was an absolute master at getting her out of her head and just having fun and allowing someone to give her pleasure. Piper was such an adorably awkward character with her straightforward manner and oblivious nature to when someone was hot for her. But Hudson wasted no time in letting her know just how much she turned him on. Of course, when one of them (Piper) inevitably did something, said something, stupid, to hurt the other and their blowup happened, I hurt for both them because it was obvious how far they had fallen for each other at that point. Thank God Cari and Taryn didn't drag it out too far and gave them an organically timed, natural way back to each other.

    No one does sexy rockstars quite like the duo of Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott, and

    is one of their best so far. Hudson and Piper have an innate sexy chemistry that isn't something I'll soon forget, even in this huge market of rockstar romances. Can't wait for more from these two!

    Maneuvered is a wonderful light hearted, hugely funny rom com and a complete joy to read. Although this is a rocker romance, I have to say the star of the show for me is Piper. She is unfiltered, totally awkward and the stuff that comes out of her mouth is hilarious. She realises that she is lacking in certain social skills but is oblivious to the fact that her responses and reactions to those situations make her completely endearing.

    I love characters like Piper and was pleased by the fact that

    Maneuvered is a wonderful light hearted, hugely funny rom com and a complete joy to read. Although this is a rocker romance, I have to say the star of the show for me is Piper. She is unfiltered, totally awkward and the stuff that comes out of her mouth is hilarious. She realises that she is lacking in certain social skills but is oblivious to the fact that her responses and reactions to those situations make her completely endearing.

    I love characters like Piper and was pleased by the fact that although she enlists Wyatt's help in "learning how to be a girl", she doesn't fundamentally change her quirky personality and frequently lets fly with whatever pops into her head.

    Certainly not a typical rockstar, I found Wyatt initially came across as stand-offish, more interested in his expensive clothing and getting back on the road with the band than anything else. However, some time spent with Piper at Callie's baby shower has him intrigued and his attitude changes. Her refreshing honesty and unexpected responses convince him to go along with her request. Once Wyatt begins Piper's lessons, oh boy do things heat up. These authors are fantastic at writing steamy scenes and those moments between our couple here are perfect. Not overdone, they are teasing and sensual and through these we get the sense that their feelings for each other are changing and growing.

    Extremely talented authors, I have to say these ladies got me in the heart again with an unexpectedly poignant moment towards the end of the book which had me wiping my eyes. Without wishing to give anything away, they took us from laughing out loud one minute, to a beautifully tender moment between another couple, the next.

    Funny, sexy and emotional, with plenty of story too, I don't hesitate to recommend this book.

    These ladies slay me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. The whole Oblivion-verse is just so real to me, and every time I start one of these books, I know I'm in for a TREAT.

    I'll start my review by talking about the main characters.

    We got a nice taste (oh how I WISH, amirite?) of Hudson Wyatt in Manipulated, and I was one-hundred-percent ready to read more about him by the end of that book. I didn't expect full-on Wyatt attitude. And he was throwing it from PAGE EFFING ONE. Instead of only seeing the charmin

    We got a nice taste (oh how I WISH, amirite?) of Hudson Wyatt in Manipulated, and I was one-hundred-percent ready to read more about him by the end of that book. I didn't expect full-on Wyatt attitude. And he was throwing it from PAGE EFFING ONE. Instead of only seeing the charming and affable side of him, we get to see the jerky, demanding, coffee-hoarding, broody drummer.

    Meanwhile, we meet Piper. Owner of the Pussy Palace. It's totally NOT what you're thinking. She and Callie, Owen's

    pregnant wife, are good friends, and Piper is closing down her cat cafe to host Callie's baby shower. It's an "all hands on deck" type shower, so guys and girls alike are there - to Wyatt's ultimate chagrin. Piper takes everything in stride though. Even when she has a demanding jerk to deal with, she still manages to make sure all the other attendees are taken care of, and she's a perfect hostess.

    Wyatt would like to think he's sticking around for the coffee, and then Piper lays him flat with a request that went from zero to sixty in nothing flat. She wants to know how to flirt, and maybe more. From what he's seen, it looks like quite a bit more. Fork-flying, cat-scratching, coffee-pressing

    .

    Yes, this is a rom-com - hate to love essentially (which is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE), but there are some angsty parts. That only enhances the story as far as I'm concerned. There are also some tie-ins to the other Oblivion-verse titles, including a bit at the end that had me a little choked up BECAUSE HOW COULD YOU!?! ahem, I mean, I was reminded of the ending of another book that was very emotional. *wink*

    So for reals, I give this one FIVE stuffed baby giraffe stars. FIVE!!!

    I don’t know where to start with the latest Hammered story. Between the innuendos, the miscommunications and the cats, I wasn’t sure where the story was going or how it was going to get there.

    First, I am not a cat lover. Sorry! So, when Hudson walked into the Pussy Café and shuddered, so did I. Well, I wouldn’t have been able to walk in without downing a bottle of Benadryl but, that’s not the point. He shuddered because of his designer clothes and one cat who fell in love with him at first sight

    First, I am not a cat lover. Sorry! So, when Hudson walked into the Pussy Café and shuddered, so did I. Well, I wouldn’t have been able to walk in without downing a bottle of Benadryl but, that’s not the point. He shuddered because of his designer clothes and one cat who fell in love with him at first sight. Well, Maya may have but no so much on Piper’s end. But, she makes the best coffee he has ever had and made him a proposition that, for some unknown reason, he couldn’t refuse.

    Piper knew that suggesting that Hudson school her on how to be more at ease around men could be a very bad idea. But, what did she have to lose? She was brought up by her father, can take apart a car’s engine and put it back together, can build or remodel anything but, she can’t communicate with a man on a woman’s level. She needs help and knows that there is no way that she can hold the interest of a rockstar playboy like Hudson.

    As lesson one turns into lesson 2 and final exams are getting serious, Piper can’t help but see a side of Hudson that the public doesn’t see, and Hudson is getting really fed up with her calling him teacher. She has to see what she is doing to him, what she means to him. Until she gives him what she thinks he wants … freedom with a f*ck buddy when he’s not on tour. Wrong! It takes a beautiful baby for her to see what she gave up, what she is missing and just what she means to him.

    This was a cute story. Not exactly what I was expecting with the Hammered crew but it was amusing. Cari and Taryn know how to write a story together and I was happy that there wasn’t too much angst throughout the story. Piper actually started getting on my nerves though. She came off as a little whiney and a true cat lady and seriously had no clue how to act around a man. I was actually feeling sorry for Hudson at some points. But, the secondary characters, the Hammered members, Tabitha really made the story fun. I’m looking forward to more from the boys of Hammered.

    Ex-racecar driver Hudson Wyatt is currently known for this skill behind the drums of well-known rock band Hammered, and his penchant for partying and womanizing. But with the love bug going around in his band, he’s been feeling a bit left out and pondering if he’s missing out. He never expected Cupid would pair him with a sexy, oddball cat lady with a quick wit. Can he convince her that they’re perfect for each other?

    Ex-racecar driver Hudson Wyatt is currently known for this skill behind the drums of well-known rock band Hammered, and his penchant for partying and womanizing. But with the love bug going around in his band, he’s been feeling a bit left out and pondering if he’s missing out. He never expected Cupid would pair him with a sexy, oddball cat lady with a quick wit. Can he convince her that they’re perfect for each other?

    Café/cat playground owner Piper Lockwood has always been a bit of a tomboy, an odd woman out, clueless towards the opposite sex, but also super honest. Even knowing it wasn’t a great idea because the man was way out of her league, she doesn’t hesitate to ask Hudson for a few pointers. He’s the best and she’s got nothing to lose. The real problem is that she didn’t anticipate he’d be interested in her and not just for a few lessons.

    Hello sexy rock star Hudson Wyatt! Wyatt first meets Piper at his bandmate’s Callie baby shower held at the Pussy Palace, get your mind out of the gutter! it’s the café/cat place owned by Piper, friend of Callie. When the happy group of rockers and friends leave, Piper propositions Wyatt and boy do sparks fly, right along with rapid fire innuendos and some miscommunications in expectations.

    As the lessons progress Piper gets to know Hudson’s private persona and starts falling for the unattainable rock star. But in a misguided attempt to him the freedom she thinks he wants, she loses him until she realizes that what they had was the real deal.

    I love catching up with these rock group! They’re very appealing and the group is so tightknit it feels like a big happy family that keeps getting bigger and fun-er!

    Manster is book #4 of the Hammered series by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliot. It is a standalone contemporary rocker romance. Told from both points of view and has a happy ending.
