[Review]: "Treble Maker"

Treble Maker by Annabeth Albert
Publisher: Lyrical Shine (August 4, 2015)
Series: Perfect Harmony, 1
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

On Perfect Harmony, the ambitious competitors heat things up on stage and off…

Cody Rivers is determined to be a rock star, but couch-surfing between bar shows gets old fast. Joining an a cappella group for a new singing competition show could be his last chance at real fame—unless the college boy from the heart of the country messes it up for him. Lucas Norwood is everything gothy, glittery Cody is not—conservative, clean-cut, and virginal. But when a twist in the show forces them together, even the sweetest songs get steamy as the attraction between them lights up the stage. Lucas wants to take it slow, but Cody’s singing a different tune—and this time it maybe a love song…

My Review:

The premise of Treble Maker the boys meeting during an a cappella competition – caught my attention right away. Annabeth Albert created a fun competition for this story, and I'd totally watch this show, by the way.

The contrast between hungry eyes and angelic face made Cody want to dirty him up a little.

Lucas and Cody are both great, though they each have their minor flaws. They make a very cute couple though, and I loved watching them struggle to reach their HEA.

God, he could get addicted to forcing little noises from Lucas, pushing him up against that edge where indignation met arousal.

Perhaps the thing I loved most about this book was the sexy times. Albert did a fan-fucking-tastic job with sexual tension and chemistry throughout the book, not to mention great build up (literally and figuratively). This is a hot read, and I loved every dirty minute of it – especially when Cody would make Lucas beg . . . Unf. Just UNF. And their first time “together-together” was truly something else – sexy as hell, but emotional, too.

"But I still love them. Is that so wrong?"

Was it wrong to want a heat wave in January?

I have to admit, Lucas's parents and their views bothered me through the book. I wanted to shake Lucas a few times to make him realize he needed to step away from their controlling thumb. But they did mellow a bit in the end and Lucas did find the strength to stand up to them.

If Lucas wanted to find himself, Cody wanted to help draw the map.

For a fun, dirty read with music inspiration galore, Trebel Maker is definitely worth picking up. I'm curious who will be getting a book next in this series.
