Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin

Twenty-six-year-old Gaby Barreto might be a lot of things (loyal, sarcastic, one of the guys and a pain in the butt depending on which family member you ask), but dumb isn’t one of them. 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 ...

    **3.5** This feels like it might have been an earlier work of Zapata's. Still good, really funny, but not her strongest. The banter between Gaby, Eli, and Mason was entertaining as hell. And that was easily the strongest part of the book. I could have done without the slut-shaming.

    6+ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ I can't express to you how much I wish I'd found this author earlier. I mean, her writing is just phenomenal.

I loved the story.I loved Eliza & Flabby's relationship.I loved Mason.I loved the supporting cast.I loved Gaby's witty and hilarious comebacks.I loved Sassy 'n' Suspenders.I loved ...

    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...

    “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...

    Ah mais quel bon moment !!! Qu'est ce que j'ai ri ! C'est exactement ce qui me fallait :)J'ai ri quasi tout du long. C'était limite lourd des fois mais c'est pas grave, j'ai gloussé et ça m'a fait du bien !Me suis attachée à Gaby, Eli(za), les deux autres, et à Sacha.La romance met beaucoup beaucoup de temps à se mettre en place mais qu'importe, on a bcp de plaisir à suivre ce petit groupe en tournée.En parlant de tournée, j'ai égaleme...

    I read two of MZ's backlist this weekend and was in a total blissed out reading fog because of them!For all you rockstar lurve genre fans, this one's for you. After finishing school and getting dumped by her douche bag boyfriend, aimless and restless, she reluctantly agrees to join her twin brother on tour with his opening band. She's not exactly thrilled about selling merchandise once again for the band, having quit before because they act like ...

    I loved the banter and the characters in this, but the chemistry wasn't quite there for me so the romance missed the mark I'm afraid. Still liked it though, just not as a romance. Ah well.

    Re-read:<3First Read:Zapata can do no wrong! I swear I fall in love like crazy in each of her books and this was no exception. I adored this one so much, and i laughed so hard throughout it. Eli was the most hilarious thing ever.I love how all her books are in the same universe and she leaves little clues to how distantly they all are related.

    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...it...

    Four Stars for Sacha and Gaby As far as I can remember, Mariana Zapata has officially popped my "rock star/singer book" cherry! I wasn't sure what to expect with this one as this book theme has never been my thing but I'm glad I took the risk. Gaby is at a crossroads in her life. Having just been dumped and kicked out of her ex'a house she's not sure of what to do next in life. Moping around is starting to get the better of her when her brother ...

    If I was the type of person that could ignore multiple instances of misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, and slut-shaming then I may have given this book 5 stars. It has everything I like: great characters, road trips, musicians, comedy, interesting side characters, an interesting storyline, a slow burn romance; but I can't let it go. I can't. It was AWFUL. For whatever reason, the author felt compelled to have her characters demoralize anyone and ...

    Gaby is at loose ends - she’s just graduated college, has no job and she just got dumped by her boyfriend of two years. When her twin brother Eli (or Eliza as she calls him), asks her to sell merchandise for him and his band, Ghost Orchid (formed with her two other best friends, the morons Gordo and Mason), while they’re on tour, she says yes. On her first day, she meets Sascha, the lead singer of the headlining band, The Cloud Collision, in ...

    It's one of best books I've read. It was funny and sweet. I can't stop laughing when I think how Gaby met Sacha :D And I love farting Eli(za)!!! Now I definitely must read Kulti :D

    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...

    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...

    I LOVED this book! My face literally hurts after reading this because I was smiling so much. The banter was fantastic, the friendships hilarious and the romance was slow-building but so worth the build up. Gaby's twin brother is in a band and invites Gaby to go on tour with them when they need someone to sell merchandise. Gaby is at a place in her life where she's not really sure what she's doing with herself after just finishing her degree so sh...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

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,...
