    One thought on “Blessed Tragedy”

    1. Rain Maxwell is stubborn, angry and selfish or so she is told often by anyone who knows her. Colton Bradford knows these things about her and loves her any way. Rain is the lead singer of Blessed Tragedy and Colton is one of her bandmates. She has a deep connection with Colton, but is afraid to explore it for many reasons. I loved Colton! He was so attentive and loving to Rain. There were some issues that came up where I was a little pissed at him, but he redeemed himself. Rain appears to be thi [...]

    2. Wonderful, wonderful, fantastic 5 stars!!!Blessed tragedy is a story of love, forgiveness, tragedy, friendships, hardships and self discovery.I absolutely loved the story. I love that is was about a rock band, because I absolutely love those bad boys but this one had a little twist. The main character was a rocker but not your typical tattooed, lie record bad boy but a tattooed, pierced bad girl. Rain aka Maddie. I loved her character. She was feisty and outspoken two wonderful traits in my book [...]

    5.

    6. 4.5stars. I really liked this. A bit different having a girl rock singer and I loved the characters. Book 2 in May. There wasn't a cliffhanger though. More of a series I think rather than a sequel. X

    7. Here are 5 reasons why Blessed Tragedy is your next read:1. Female Rockstar.Finally! Don’t get me wrong, I love my sexy male rockstars but it is so refreshing to have a female take center stage.2. ColtonHe is a friend, lover and so incredibly patient. Yes, he screws up sometimes but it’s how he handles himself that makes him a man. I absolutely adored him and I think many ladies will be adding him to their book boyfriend collection.3. Rain/MaddieWhile Rain is confident, Maddie is not. I love [...]

    8. I am sorry. While I wanted to like this, I just couldn't. There were some things that I could not come back from (view spoiler)[the band not believing Rain about the coke.(hide spoiler)]. Then there were too much drama. I felt like Colt and Rain were CONSTANTLY fighting. It drove me nuts. I thought that Rain was very immature and whiny.Then, I thought her reasoning for leaving and not going home was lame. I was expecting something more. THEN, after 5 years of being called a "selfish bitch" by yo [...]

    9. Blessed tragedy starts off with a little background on Maddie Neumann our main character, she has just finished high school, and has decided that the town and life that she has been living is not for her, and she is determined to follow her dreams. She is the youngest of four children and the only girl, and has been forced to play all of the "girlie" roles for her Mother, like being a cheerleader, pretending to love the colour pink, etc. She leaves the town and does not look back for years to co [...]

    10. The Blessed Tragedy grabs you from the very beginning and is hard to put down. You find yourself sympathizing with the characters through their struggles and successes. I love a good rock star romance and this book does not disappoint. I enjoyed the fact that Rain/Maddie was a female lead singer in waht had been an all-male band. RainRain had spent the last 5 years avoiding going home at all cost. She was tired of being called a "selfish bitch" for making decisions that her family did not agree [...]

    11. "A Disney movie princess once proclaimed she wanted her first kiss to be a foot-popper. At the time, I laughed at the cheesy script; I wasn't laughing as I lifted my foot off the ground. When any kiss is as good as the one Colton gave me, it's nearly impossible to retain control of your body."Blessed Tragedy was one of those book surprises where you buy it not knowing what to expect but after reading the first chapter you're beyond seriously attached. It stole my heart, gave me butterflies, made [...]

    12. All I can say is that I really, really enjoyed this book. This is told from Maddy’s POV. Reading the title, I wasn’t sure what to expect. And I wasn’t expecting to get grabbed by the front of my shirt and pulled into this book like I was. I’m being honest, when I say I didn’t want to put it down at all yesterday. I finished this in less than one day. What does that tell you??? I have read a lot of books in my lifetime and I loved the way this story flowed from the beginning, the charac [...]

    13. I heard this book was good but wow I didn't think it was this good!I couldn't put it down -Finally gave into sleep when I was 85% done and couldn't wait to wake up and finish it. Now there is not a lot of hot juicy sex - some yes but nothing in abundance.There's a lot going on in this story and at the beginning it was exciting to see Colton & Rain's relationship change. Rain also had a lot to deal with her family & that too was wonderful to read as their relationship changed as well. Bad [...]

    14. I wish I could say I loved this book, as the story idea intrigued me and showed a lot of promise. Don't get me wrong I did enjoy this book, but (there's always a but) I just wanted a bit more. There was angst etc, and we do find out that Maddie/Rain has lots of issues, which do go some way to explaining her actions, however a lot of the time I just wanted to slap her upside the head and tell her to grow up and sort her shit out. Some bits were skimped over, which I felt could of done with being [...]

    15. Every emotion was covered in the book. The girl trying to find her way after she left the life she thought she hated behind. With the amazing secondary characters, I enjoyed her journey. The hardships and sex had enough to keep my interest without going overboard and without being repetative. Being able to laugh and feel the pain the character is going through is the amazing part of a book. H.B. Heinzer was able to capture it all.Thanks for the ARC read and I hope to review again in the future.

    16. I finished this book in 18 hours I did sleep and take care of my family but it was incredible. The love was flowing a family learning to love each other again. A band loving each other like siblings. Of course a romance

    17. But slow for me and rain as the heroine didn't draw me in. The characters seemed hollow, I love a good rock star story but this just doesn't compare to some of the others! It didn't help that I had just read an amazing boom

    18. 3.5 stars. Liked it and liked the characters. Didn't really feel the love story. That was kind of lacking. I just didn't think it compared to other books I've given 4 stars to but it was higher than 3 stars. I think I'll read the next one though, but I won't rush out to get it.

    19. After an eighteen year sentence, the "princess prison" I was born into could no longer hold me.Blessed Tragedy was not what I expected it to be. From the very beginning I thought this girl, Rain (Maddie), is going to be bad ass. I knew that the story was going to be told from a rocker girls POV, so I started reading the book expecting exactly just that- A rocker story but in a girls POV. When we were around my family, I was Maddie but here in my room, when it was just us, I was Rain.The main cha [...]

    20. I received a free copy of this book as part of the blog tour in exchange for an honest reviewDue to explicit sexual content and language, I'd recommend this book for mature readers (+18).Blessed Tragedy is the captivating story of Maddie Neumman -a normal and good girl raised to go to collage and have a normal job- and Rain Maxwell -a hardcore chick who is the lead singer of a rock band. The thing is, they're the same person. After graduation, Maddie decided to leave everything behind to pursue [...]

    21. (Rating: 3.5)When I need a break from paranormal and fantasy, I check out contemporary romances (YA, NA or adult). One of my absolute favorite type of romance features musicians so when I read the synopsis for Blessed Tragedy, I knew it would be my kind of story. It was.Rain aka Maddie has escaped her mundane life for something more fulfilling and exciting--to live her dream. She's the lead singer of a rock band and the only girl. Pretty sweet gig. Colton is a guitarist (along with his band mate [...]

    22. I started reading Blessed Tragedy by H.B. Heinzer excepting another rock n’ roll love story. So I was surprised as I was hardly into the first few chapters when Maddie/Rain’s family appeared. I think it’s fitting the main character had two names, Madeline, or Maddie, as she was called by her family, and Rain who she became after she left home. The two names are fitting because Blessed Tragedy is almost two stories. It’s a story about Maddie and her relationship with her family, but also [...]

    23. All I can say is that I really, really enjoyed this book. This is told from Maddy’s POV. Reading the title, I wasn’t sure what to expect. And I wasn’t expecting to get grabbed by the front of my shirt and pulled into this book like I was. I’m being honest, when I say I didn’t want to put it down at all yesterday. I finished this in less than one day. What does that tell you??? I have read a lot of books in my lifetime and I loved the way this story flowed from the beginning, the charac [...]

    24. This was a pretty intense read to say the least. If you don't know me than you probably might not know is the more intense the better. Yes, this book did it for me and I loved the story. It had the perfect amount of love, angst, loss, and heartbreak all in one.Maddie is part of the band Blessed Tragedy. She doesn't go by the name Maddie anymore everyone knows her as Rain Maxwell tough rocker chick. The opposite of what she was before she left after her high school graduation. Ever since her chan [...]

    25. From my blog.**ARC provided by author for an honest review**Wanna know the main reason I wanted to read this book? I've lately been fascinated, maybe even obsessed with rockers and rock bands. (It may or may not have little something to do with something I myself am writing right now). This book, however, managed to blow up all of my expectations. Honestly? The first three paragraphs were the hardest for me to read Then, suddenly, I could no longer put it down, not even for a moment. Calling Ble [...]

    26. Blessed Tragedy is a great suspenseful romance about a girl struggling to discover who she is. It sucks you right in from the start and doesn’t let go.Madeline “Maddie” Neumann graduated high school, left home without a word, and reinvented herself as Rain Maxwell, hardcore rocker chick. The story picks up just after Rain learns her mother has died. She’s about to head home for the funeral, and you quickly learn the dynamics of Rain’s realtionship with her other bandmates, which are al [...]

    27. 4.5 Stars I love, love, loved this book!!! You know what all rocker books lack??? Female characters in the band… Well, I was so pleasantly pleased when reading Blessed Tragedy because both the characters are in the band and they are both bad ass. Rain AKA Madeline ran away from home years ago to pursue a music career that no one in her family approved of. Years later, her and her band mates are famous rock stars living the life until Rain has to return home to attend her mother’s funeral. Te [...]

    28. I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to have a book told from the female rocker perspective. Maddie (aka Rain) left home right out of high school to pursue her dream of becoming a rock star. This book interested me from the viewpoint in that I love a good rocker book. However, this wasn’t really about that aspect of Maddie’s life, and wasn’t a typical rock star romance. Instead the author wrote a story about family, either the one you’re born with or the one that comes into you [...]
