    brought back all the reasons I love reading Harper Sloan and consider her one of my favorite authors. This was a fantastic start to the Loaded Replay series and I can already tell that I'm going to love all of these characters.

    This first book follows Wrenlee and the rest of her band mates while on tour. Her band members decide she needs a bodyguard after someone breaks into her hotel room, so they hire Chance to watch her. The two have some amazing chemistry and soon they become much more than bodyguard/client.

    This series is sort of a spin-off from the Hope Town series so if you've read that book than you probably recognize Chance as being Cohen's roommate in

    . The boys from Corps Security weren't featured in this book much, though. I actually liked that past characters didn't pop up and take the focus away from the band so I was happy that the focus stayed on Chance and Wrenlee, with some on her fellow band members.

    I thought Chance and Wren had a really great connection and they fell into a relationship easily, which was fun to read. There wasn't an overabundance of drama or tension between them and it was actually refreshing to read about a couple liking each other, getting together, and staying together for once without the missing angst. The bottom line is that this was a fantastic book that I will highly recommend. I hope everyone likes this new series as much as I did.

    Wren/Wrenlee is the lead singer of Loaded Replay. They are very successful. In the band is her twin brother Weston Luke and Jamison. Wes and Wren have been best friends with Like and Jamison since they were kids. They used to just play local bands till the got noticed but Wren isn't really feeling things at the min. Her life is the same thing and she is tried they haven't had a break in so long. The label and manager just keep pushing them. They need to ride the high they were told but Wren as had enough. Her and Wes hadn't had a great life growing up there parents were crappy. When they moved and made friends with Luke and Jamison things got a lil better they were dealing with the same so they just stuck together. Wren treats them al like brothers but the bond she as with Wes is so strong they can sense when things are not right and Wes is getting that feeling and he us worried. With the band being one of the best in the world not everything is good. Wren as been dealing with a few issues. So the lads think it's time to bring in better security but she didn't think her security was goin to be so hot.

    Chance as been in security for a while he was a marine for years. So security was the next step. He is dealing with a few issues but he hides them will. Chance knew if the band and was a fan. He knew how Wren was and what she looked like but when he saw her he couldn't hide his attraction to her she is sexy as hell. He had to be professional it was his job and he wanted to protect her. Nothing would happen to her on his watch but as the days went on there attraction got stronger. They just both wanted each other they were so hot together.

    The other members of the band were great. I m dyin to get more from them. Jamison is so funny he's flirts with anything that moves even Wren. Wes his very protective of his sister he would do anything to make sure she is ok. Luke seems the quieter of the band members so I m quit interested to get more from him. I luvd the connection they al had. They were a strong family and would do anything for each other.

    This is the first book I 've read from this author and it definitely won't be the last. I really enjoyed this book I couldn't put it down once I started. The writing was great I living getting into the heads of both characters. So having both pov was great. Wren is a brilliant character. I really enjoyed her personality she had dealt with a lot growing up but with Wes she could deal with it. It was still in the back of her mind but Chance made a huge difference to her life. They both had baggage so it was hard trying to deal with stuff. There lives were very different but they couldnt stay away from each other.

    I would highly recommend this book. The story was great it kept me interested al the way through. I was dyin to know how things would work out. I can't really find anything to didn't like about this book. If I m being picky the ending was a lil quick would of liked more but I didn't really mind I was happy with the way it ended. Really enjoyed it xxx.

    Harper Sloan's books just get better and better with each one she writes. I loved this book from the first page to the last.

    Wren is a famous singer in a band that is at the top of their game. She's also become a little disillusioned with the life of fame. At first, I was thinking...stop feeling sorry for yourself.

    Wren is a famous singer in a band that is at the top of their game. She's also become a little disillusioned with the life of fame. At first, I was thinking...stop feeling sorry for yourself. But then I realized she just wants more from her life and doesn't think it will happen because of who she is and the constant traveling. There is someone threatening Wren and her brother and the other guys in the band decide to hire extra security for her.

    Enter Chance Nash and all of his deliciousness. Because of rules put in place by their record label, the group and a reluctant Wren decide that he will be her fake boyfriend. As time goes on and these two open up to each other, it doesn't seem so fake anymore.

    These two heal the broken parts in each other and they build a love so strong that nothing can break it. Their love for each other was so true that you could feel it. Along with an amazing cast of secondary characters, whose stories I can't wait for, this book had everything I love in a romance.

    Next up is Jamison and I can't wait to see him get his HEA. I hope it's with Dyllan. I will always read everything that Harper Sloan writes. Even in a couple of her books that had elements I don't love, I still ended up adoring each story. I'm also super excited about her cowboy series coming out next year. Ok I'm done fangirling for now ;)

    I am a fan of all things Harper Sloan, so when I heard she was releasing a rock star book, I jumped right in.

    has Chance, Cohen’s friend and roommate from the Hopetown series, and Wrenlee Davenport, the lead singer of Loaded Replay. I loved that Chance got his own story and was excited to read it!

    Wrenlee is the face of Loaded Replay, but she’s also a private person. The only people who really know her are her 3 band mates, Wes (her twin brother), Luke, and Jamison. That’s the way it has to be. When you’re a star, people take advantage of you and Wren has had that happen one to many times. Loaded Replay is in need of better security for Wren, so who better to hire than someone ex-military who works for Corps Security? Chance is just the guy for the job.

    Chance is a professional and takes his job very seriously, but he can’t control the sparks that fly when he’s around Wren and the connection/chemistry they have. Chance battles some things from his past. He’s concerned about hurting Wren. All he wants to do is protect her, but who can protect her from him?

    I loved both Chance and Wren and even though their relationship moved fast, I could really feel the connection between them. For some reason, the fast pace worked with them. Even though it was a bit of insta-love, it honestly didn’t feel that way. Wren was a tough heroine, but she was also sweet and vulnerable deep down. Chance was just the guy she needed. They were honestly a perfect match.

    Harper set up a promising series by giving us a great first book, and 3 fabulous band members I’m dying to read about in the coming books. If you’re looking for a sexy, sweet and fun book- take a chance on

    Harper Sloan comes back in full force, everybody! This book has made me fall in love with her writing all over again. She presents a new series, with fabulous characters and love stories full of sexy times! I adored every page of this one, for sure!

    is the first installment in the

    series and it starts with the love story between Wrenlee Davenport (the lead voice of the group) and Chance Nash (Cohen Cage’s best friend from the

    series). Chance is Wren’s new head of security, he is hired to watch the lead singer but sparks start flying between them since the first moment they lay each on each other. This story is about two jaded hearts that heal together.

    What an amazing way to start this series, Harper! This woman has introduced a fantastic group of people that I am sure will give us the most amazing love stories. Loaded Replay has four components: Wren, Wes (her twin brother), Luke and Jamison. These people met at a very young age, all not loved by their parents and they haven’t been apart since. I love the familiarity between them, the hilarious moments we experience with them and the emotional ones too. They are just an exceptional group and I can’t wait for more!

    I just love having a band that gets along so well and besides that, I love having a couple that has the most amazing off-the-charts chemistry. Wren and Chance are simply explosive: they definitely burnt my Kindle with all the hotness! I love Harper’s alphas and her super-sassy heroines and Chance and Wrenlee are not an exception. They gave us lots of hot moments and lots of beautiful and sentimental ones too.

    And even though Chance and Wren’s relationship goes really fast paced, I have to say I did not mind it at all because Harper made me love them from the start. Moreover, we get a bit of suspense between this love story and I really enjoyed the emotional consequences we got from it! And can I repeat that I am extremely curious and excited about the other Loaded Replay members? Jamison is next and I am pretty sure he will give us a very amusing and wonderful love story!

    Therefore, my rating for

    is 5 STARS because Harper gives an excellent introduction to the

    series and a beautiful and super-sexy love story. I kind of missed having a longer epilogue but besides that, this was absolutely perfect. I can’t wait for all the other stories! If you have enjoyed this woman’s writing before or you want a great love story to read, I highly recommend this one!

    For those of you who like me read all of Harper’s work, these two are no strangers. We could see upon reading the Hope Town series that when Chance set his eyes on Wren for the very first time at one of their concerts that something extraordinary would come from these two. And come it did!!! LOL

    Wrenlee Davenport has been living a life of fame and success for five years now, but what only her closest family – her brother and bandmates – can see is that she is fast approaching her breaking point. For years she has wanted, craved even, something more. Or better yet someone… Someone who will see behind the well constructed facade of the sex symbol lead singer of one the world’s most famous rock band and want her for who she truly is, for everything she is deep down…

    And here enters our dark and handsome hero, Chance. I was already completely hooked on him while reading Unexpected Fate, but now, I’m just as dumbstruck as Wren was! Talk about swoon worthy!!!

    From the very first moment he crosses the threshold of the hotel suite, and their eyes connect, any feared and caution about both their pasts is doomed. Their magnetism and attraction is almost palpable and without a doubt reciprocated. ;)

    Goddamn, that smile is dangerous.

    Who am I kidding? He is dangerous.

    Truthfully he was just missing the black horse, because he came in guns blazing and immediately took on the role of the protector. A role he seemed born to fill.

    Even in his resistance to their obvious attraction (due to the ghosts of his past), he never falter in his role, because she truly became the center of his world. The only thing that mattered.

    She has fears of her own, of course, but when it comes to Chance, she has no doubt that they are mean to be. She just has to make in realize that, and for that he just needs to open himself up, like she’s doing. After years of closing herself of from relationships (after so many of those having used her for their personal gain), I was happily surprise with the apparent easiness of her acceptance of felling for Chance. I loved her attitude, her sassiness and her faith – although she had her own doubts at times. But teasing him was half the fun!

    Their hesitation doesn’t last long, and once they give in, it’s full steam ahead!

    I absolutely adored how open and sure they were from that point forward. They opened to one another like they never did to another being, and it was a beautiful thing to read. Their fears became just memories, and they started their process of mutually healing one another…

    Healing, caring, and a LOT of loving!!! Because with that explosive chemistry, and an alpha male like Chance, how could their sex scenes not be their own level of

    ??? And Chance… Holy mother of filthy talkers!!!

    We get PLENTY of steaminess to go around, that’s for sure! And this pervy reader LOVED every second of it!!!

    Another standout is the incredible relationship that Wren has with the rest of the guys, – her brother and friends – but specially her bound with her twin brother, Weston. It’s amazing to see their love and support, and he hinted to what an amazing character I’m sure he’ll be. Her rock, her anchor, even if she doesn’t need him as much as she always did. An immeasurable brotherly love…

    And I can’t not mention the rest of the bandmates, Luke and Jamison, specially the former, because, OMG, was that guy a hoot!!!! Really, what an awesome character! He sure gave us some ROFL moments here!

    JADED HEARTS really was a spectacular beginning for the series, and these characters were splendidly thought out and realistically portrayed – you can see by the incredible (and numerous, even if reduced multiple times, lol) quotes I posted. So amazing, it was hard to choose from! The storyline itself couldn’t have been more well constructed. Naturally, emotionally and fluidly, the events develop in a way that you feel that you are living them with the characters, and that for me is perfect writing perfection on Harper’s part. It’s exactly what I hope to find in each story I dive in, and here it surpassed expectation. The only thing I missed, being the total ‘epilogue – whore’ that I am, was a more extended epilogue with a deeper look into their future. I know we’ll get that for sure in the upcoming books, but I’m a greedy reader, so I wanted it now! Can’t wait to see what Harper Sloan brings us next with that special and quirky character of Jamison! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    This was a definitely a nice and steamy beginning to the Loaded Replay series and the fact that this time the big rock star was the girl was somewhat refreshing. There isn't that much angst on this book, they like each other (there's a bit of insta-love in this one), they get together and that's pretty much it, so it's nice to read a book where the mc's don't spend most of the story pushing and pulling.

There was some drama that felt completely unreal to me, even for a fiction book and that was the reason I lowered my rating to 3,5 instead of 4. I didn't love how the author decided to wrap everything up. Noneteless, it was definitely a good and steamy reading, with a sexy alpha male and some really good moments. If you're a fan of Harper Sloan you should definitely check it out.

    Well, hmmm. I really wanted to like this one, but sadly it just wasn't for me. There were just too many things that pressed my buttons (and not in a good way) to rate this higher than 2.5 stars.

    First, the instalove. I know, I know -- many of you LOVE instalove! I'm just not a fan. I didn't understand how they jumped into feelings of love at all. It also got a little too fluf

    Well, hmmm. I really wanted to like this one, but sadly it just wasn't for me. There were just too many things that pressed my buttons (and not in a good way) to rate this higher than 2.5 stars.

    **FYI -- This gets a little ranty with lots of exclamation points, so I apologize in advance**

    First, the instalove. I know, I know -- many of you LOVE instalove! I'm just not a fan. I didn't understand how they jumped into feelings of love at all. It also got a little too fluffy for my liking with the lovey-dovey talk.

    Second, I felt like we just scratched the surface of these characters. I wish we were given some more depth into them, because I felt that they really did have potential!

    Third, the h's characterization was inconsistent. I was really liking her tough, confident attitude at the beginning, but then she turned into the type of h that makes me roll my eyes constantly. I mean, I was facepalming and cringing over her OTT dramatics for the last couple chapters because she ended up being that bad!

    Fourth and finally, the ending. WTH!! That was one of the worst "epilogues" I've read to date! That left us with hardly any closure at all except the band coming out with a new cd -- but who cares?!? This is supposed to be about the h and H! We needed some actual concrete closure for the couple here! I appreciate the author trying something different with it being as if it was a magazine article, but COME ON!

    Oh well...ok, rant over ;).

    I do feel the need to mention that the sex scenes were pretty hot. So those looking for a book that has instalove, low-to-no-angst, and hot sex scenes -- this might be a winner for you!

    This is Wrenlee and Chance's story. Chance gets hired to work security for the wildly popular band that Wrenlee fronts. She is receiving stalker type threats, and he is sought out by her worried brother and band mates. The sparks fly instantly, and it doesn't take them long to stop fighting their attraction. They start up a fake relationship to get around some contractual restrictions, but it soon becomes real and they fall in love...and they do get a HFN ending.

    This alternated between Wrenlee and Chance's POV.

    Good until the end (see closure section). I never skimmed and it flowed well otherwise.

    Yes! It did move quickly as for the time it takes for them to feel stronger feelings, but it also was the type that didn't feel believable to me. We don't get that much of them developing feelings, it's just like BAM! they're in love. I understood their instalust, but not the instalove.

    3.5 stars. Chance. I liked him for the most part. He was pretty hot...yep, that's all I can come up with right now.

    3 stars. Wrenlee. She was a contradiction. She started off strong and the type of h I can get behind, but then she did a 180 and became an emotional mess that was either spouting fluffy lovey-dovey stuff or crying. I didn't get it! I liked her at first, but ended up disliking her at the end.

    Low, no tissues needed.

    Yes, but minimal.

    Moderate. They have some hot chemistry and scenes, but not so much it takes away from the storyline.

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    No

    Yes, but mild

    This had an abrupt ending with a (IMO) crappy epilogue that left us with hardly any closure! Yes, we hear that the band is doing well -- but what about the h and H?!? I would call this a HFN ending

    .

    I got it on loan through booklending.com from a dear friend :)

    This book should be

    for most readers.
