When her twin brother invites her to go on tour as his band’s merch girl, she isn’t exactly screaming at the top of her lungs with joy. With no job opportunities pounding on her door, an ex-boyfriend she would still like to castrate, and no end in sight to ...

Reviews Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin

  • Christy
    4 stars!! “Not liking you is like fighting gravity.” I am on a roll when it comes to Mariana Zapata books! With each one I read, I love her more and more. I only have 2 left and I go between wanting to binge read them, or to savor them and wait a while to read. Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin was different than some of her other books, but still had fantastic characters, a fun story line, and a delicious slow-burn romance! Gaby is going on tou...

    That's right, I had a huge smile on my face throughout the whole book. It was funny, light and so so sweet. The romance was slow and hardly anything happened romantically until 80%, but the slow build-up made me appreciate the relationship between main characters even more, and the whole anticipation thing was well done.Gaby, fresh out of college, with no job yet, dumped by her boyfriend takes an offer from her twin brother Eli to go on tour with...

    “He was the end to my beginning.” ➦I'm a huge fan of Zapata's. She if a queen of slow burn and I absolutely loved and . This book, unfortunately, didn't do it for me. I did like it, I just didn't love it.➦We have Gaby, our heroine, who goes on tour with her brother's band to work as a merch girl. There she meets Sasha, a lead singer of the headlining band who is also on tour with them. They spend the next three months together on the...

    4.5 stars! “Not liking you is like fighting gravity.” After her boyfriend dumps her, Gabby is asked to go on tour with her twin brother selling merchandise for his band. Which would be fine, if she wasn't insanely attracted to the lead singer of the other traveling band, Sacha. Three months and a bunch of countries, everyone will be tight together making for some interesting happenings. “Because if I remember correctly, your text messag...

    I FUCKIN LOVED THIS BOOK!!!and I will tell you more about it later...BUT I will state this - Mariana Zapata is definitely one of the authors that I am saving in MY FAVORITE AUTHORS drawer.The storyAs I like to state - there's no subject or theme that hasn't already been written! The difference is in the WAY or HOW it was written and that's where the writers' "personal touch" comes in, it's the thing that differs and truly makes a difference...i...

  • Didi
    I love this author. Kulti, also written by her was by far, one of the best romances I've ever read. MZ has a way of writing incredibly likable heroines full of spirit and humor. Rock star romances don't usually do it for me, but since I love this author I gave it a go. It was written with the same awesome recipe this author uses; witty humor, a slow burn of a romance and very likable characters. There's no insta-anything here, and this is tradema...

    5 ++++++++ STARS!!!!!!!"You're a dream come true."It's Mariana Zapata
  •  ✨ Dianna ✨ (mylifeasannaidreading)
    4.5/5 stars "Do you have any idea how easy it is to love you?" my binge reading my girl MZ's books probably says a lot about the state of my love life, if there is any lol ✨So, after finishing The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and Lingus, I immediately started this book because your girl just can't get enough of Mariana Zapata's writings. She's just really good.There's something different about her books that really set it above the rest of romance...

    December 2016 re-readI probably liked this more the second time around!!++++++++++++++++++++++08/23/2015 -- I enjoy this author. I think my favorite thing about this book is the relationship Gaby has with her brother Eli and her best friends Mason and Gordo. I loved the interactions and the back and forth dialogue. It sounded so much like me and my brother. I had fun reading it.At the 50% mark, I'm always thinking 5 Star. Then, something happens,...

  • Carol
    A solid 4 stars.Not as earth shattering as others by Mariana but I really liked this book. Beyond slow burn romance, I don't think the MC's connected romantically until almost 90% in. Gaby was my favorite kind of funny, kick-ass, take no prisoners sort of heroine and Sacha was the perfect tatted, yet sensitive and sweet guy. As usual her secondary characters really shine too, especially Gaby's twin brother Eli and his friends Mason and Gordo.I re...

    Mariana Zapata's rich, hilarious, superb writing. ✓Rockstar hero. ✓ Hot, up to no good musicians. A tour buss full of them, in fact. ✓Two bands. One girl. Three months of pranks, fun, friendship, sexual tension, flirting and banter. One epic world tour. ✓Why would this book need any more presentation?Arghhhh this was such a fun, entertaining read, I'm not even going to pause to analyze it or to think that it took the two idiots forfreakin...

    3 meh-i-barely-managed-to-finish starsThings I didn't like about the book:- the h spent as much time with the other supporting cast as the H, it seemed more of a road trip, coming of age story than a romance. If i'd known not sure I'd have got the book.- didn't seem particularly romantic, I could have done without hearing about the H farting or his bad morning breath or other toilet humour stuff, gross- not a fan of h pining, H apparently had an ...
  • Emma
    I liked it, I just didn't love it.This slow-burn on-tour-with-the-band romance was just that, SLOW! Not a single romantic action until 80% come on!!!!!!! I know this author is known for writing slow-burn romances, usually I'm a fan but in this case it just didn't seem believable to me. I liked the storyline and I liked the characters but a part of me felt like the banter between Gaby and her brother Eli and their 2 best friends was a little force...
  • Doris
    It was a quick and cute read.
  • Lučka
    4.35*You know I'm a sucker for Mariana Zapata. She's my top 3 authors. I love her. Her writing style works for me. This book has been sitting on my shelf for too long.In a typical MZ fashion this was a slow burn, friends-lovers romance, with lots of humor and love. The characters and story felt real and I could draw some parallels to my own life.The rapport between the heroine, her twin brother and his 2 best friends was something I loved the mos...
  • Treece
    Rating: 4 1/2 starsFunny. Sweet. Insightful. Awkward. Witty. That would sum up Gaby's narrative. The narrator does a splendid job of capturing her inner/outer voice. Sometimes falling short of the male characters but I was able to decipher after a while. Still the 'flavor' of it all got captured. Zapata has a great sense of humor in building her universe. Her characters are truly real to her and they became that way for me, too. Gaby , Sacha , El...
  • ★ Belle The Bibliophile ★
    4.75 'SASSY & FLABBY' STARS. She did it again. This book has cemented Mariana Zapata as one of my favorite authors, amongst L.H. Cosway and Julie James. I mean, she was always my favorite but this book solidifies everything.I don't know how she does it but Mariana has managed of creating a less than clichè story from a seriously clichè trope. I mean, seriously? A girl tagging along on a tour, falling in love with the tall, dark and handsome lea...

    Review written January 25, 20183.4 Stars - Nice and funnyYet again a m/f contemporary romance by Mariana Zapata. This one is from 2015. I really enjoyed and had a lot of fun listening to three others before this one. Highly recommend The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and most of all the truly fabulous Kulti. Crossed my fingers for this "Rock Star" novel as well.~ 9 hours narrated by Carly Robins.**********************************************From the sy...

    DNF at %35 (page 100 of 276 pages)Reason?I got bored, incredibly bored...I always try hard to finish books even if they get boring from time to time, but I really couldn't stand this any longer...So, you can ignore my rating because I give 1 star to all the books that I cannot keep on reading however hard I try....
  • Fabi
    I simply adore Mariana Zapata's romance novels. I can't think of a simpler way to put it. I adore them.One of the reasons why I don't read as much CR anymore is because I have a hard time connecting with the heroines. I don't have that problem with Zapata's girls. Gaby is tough and sweet, cute and natural, snarky and funny, a tomboy yet all girl. I would love a friend like her!Sacha is a bit too sweet for my tastes. But I "felt" him falling for G...

    5 MAGICAL STARS!Once again I'm reminded why Mariana Zapata has become one my favorite authors! Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin was a perfect friends to lovers romance filled with sassy, funny and sweet moments. The characters in this book were everything! From the friendships to the dynamics, to the connection each of them had. It all made me giddy and warmed my heart and my soul.Gaby and Sacha's relationship was so easy to fall in love with. Mariana is...

    I just love Mariana Zapata. I love that her books are a slower pace but you are not bored for a minute. I love that she makes you love her characters first before they start to love each other.Rhytm, Chord and Malykhin is not my favourite of her (because to top wall of winnipeg or dear aaron you have knock me on my ass) but it is going to be a reread for sure.
  • Deanna
    Rating: 4.5 - 4.75 / 5 stars I can’t stop laughing at how Gaby met Sacha Malykhin. In every story, most protagonists meet their love interest in a “meet cute” setting. This was not their case.(view spoiler)[She literally kicked him in the ass, and it was the funniest thing I’ve read in the longest time. (hide spoiler)]If you want a lighthearted, fun, comedic read—anything by Zapata should do the trick. She’s becoming one of my instant...

    ‘It was love. Plain, easy, uncomplicated love.’We fell in love with Mariana Zapata’s flawless writing in Kulti and were eager to dive into Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin. As lovers of slow burning romances where the hero and heroine begin as friends we loved how this story started out. It was easy to fall in love as we laughed and revelled in the rock ‘n roll scenery. After all we love our rock stars too. The banter and camaraderie was infectio...
  • Jacqueline
    I did not enjoy this one as much. Both of the characters seemed juvenile and I didn't really care for either one of them. The relationship here seemed forced and there really wasn't enough to make me believe that these two had any chemistry. The author tried too hard here to be funny and make her heroine ballsy and one of the guys etc. Just didn't really work for me. Oh well every author will have one that just doesn't work even for a favorite au...
