Drive by Kate Stewart


Music . . . the heart’s greatest librarian.The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia.At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing s...

    4 STARSFucking angst and bittersweet endings. I’m done with love triangles till the next opportunity for good. Right now, I hate my masochistic self. You want to know how I felt when I finished it? Relieved to realize it wasn't real. Just like when you wake up after a bad dream.Why oh why would I want to feel miserable just because some weak, insecure, selfish heroine can’t make up her goddamn mind and decides to ruin two men while growing up...

    5 STARS "Because music is the heart’s greatest librarian. A few notes had the ability to transport me back in time, and to the most painful places.” This is my favorite Kate Stewart story to date and this book most definitely is making it on my favorite list of 2017. If there has ever been a book that is written seamlessly with a musical soundtrack this is the book. I dare a reader not to check out the songs that accompany the chapters as our...

    4.5 STARS He was my song, my soul, my everything, and his love had propelled me forward into the woman I wanted to be. And that woman would burn out with the man who was made to keep her warm. Wow. WOW. Seriously, wow. This book. This was quite possibly one of the most unique, memorable, and captivating romances I've read in a long while. I have no idea how to even go about reviewing this book because I feel like you really need to go into it c...

    ALL THE STARS! “Music is the heart’s greatest librarian.” Top recommendation and one of the best books of the year for me! Drive made me fall in love with the romance genre again. I’m not exaggerating when I say this, since August I have only had one 5 star romance read, and it was MM not MF. I had given up hope on this genre and on the indie romance community but after reading Drive I’m back and ready for more!Drive is the story of ...
  • Danielle ❤️ Pretty Mess Reading ❤️
    *****4.5 STARS*****Unfiltered review here me warn you that this story is one hell of a love triangle and if that isn’t your thing then this isn’t your book.This story takes you on a long drive down memory lane of Stella’s love life or lack there of. This drive is Stella’s playlist of her heart and soul. I mean the chick lays her heart out there to bleed. Her drive, listening to her playlist, feeling her feeling...

    ➦I can't give less than 5 here, people. Because, HOLY MOTHER OF ANGST. If I didn't love my nails so much I would have totally bitten them off. ➦This book has music all over it. It follows a story of a woman who is trying to make a career out of being a reporter and discovering new bands. And her journey is not easy, people. We're talking starting from nothing. And we all know how easy it is to get a foot in the door.➦I don't think I've ever...
  • Alessandra Torre
    This book really captured me from the very beginning. I love the way it unfolded, and how the author chose to tell the story. It kept me guessing until the very end - not only how it would end, but also how I wanted it to end. I was burned by this story, because it was very similar to a real-life situation of my own. I was once in love with a man very similar to Reid. I struggled like this character struggled. And that experience really haunted m...

There is no expiration date on the ache of missing someone you shared your heart, life, and body with .Kate Stewart's star is rising.

    *****4.5 STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}It was always the music that reminded me where I’d been and where I was going. Aching from the truth of the lyrics, sweet relief came in the form of the beautiful man who appeared on the other side of the stage. He was desperately searching for someone, for me. I stood waiting, as different tears—tears I’d sworn I didn’t have left—swam in my eyes.In that moment, I let my love show an...

    5 BEAUTIFUL BASTARD STARS!! DRIVE: Is a standalone contemporary romance novel by Kate Stewart and has just become my one click author!! Holy shit!! I feel like I've been pulled through a hedge backwards, and probably look like it too!! God this book! At the start of this I went in with eyes wide open, at the end of it I came away loving two men! This book made me feel so much, I cried, I laughed, I loved, I swooned, I listened as I got carried ...

    5+ “Grenade” StarsI’m bleary eyed and sleep deprived but it is oh so worth it. Drive is an epic romance full of self discovery, hard choices, true, ever lasting love and don’t forget angst. So much angst. But it was SO WORTH EVERY SINGLE SECOND. Two days later and I am still a mess. But in the good kind of way that means not only did I read a good book but I experienced something great. So great in fact that I literally read it a second t...

    4.25 StarsOverall Opinion: Why, oh why couldn't I get a jump ahead epilogue with more of the couple?! I think after all the angst, tears, and anxious waiting we deserved that! Right?! Maybe I'm just alone in my thinking, but I needed some happiness to go with all the angst! Otherwise, I loved the book. I think if it had a good epilogue and a good concrete HEA I would've been leaning towards giving this 5 stars. Total bummer. I don't have many tr...
  • Malene_D *BadAndDirtyBooks*
    Kate Stewart! She's capable of writing anything and I mean anything. From suspenseful erotica, hilarious romcom to angsty second chance romance. She masters any genre. Drive nurtured my music loving heart and my love for romance. I was blown away by this epic story and the author's lyrical prose. Drive has cemented Kate Stewart as an author who writes without restraint. Her love and passion for music shines through every word. I'm in love and on ...
  • Stacey is Sassy
    ***IT'S ALIVE!!***I got the music in me...I realised something while reading Drive, I’ve never known heartbreak. Sure, I’ve seen the heartbreak and experienced someone else’s heartbreak, but I’ve never been gut-punched by love. I wonder sometimes if we go looking for what we don’t have, or what we haven't had, in our reads. You may think that seems weird to want to read about another's anguish and pain but there seems a lot of fulfilmen...

    FIVE ★'s Calling all angst lovers.......and Kate Stewart BROUGHT. IT!! This book is simply amazing!! If you love emotional/angsty books, you cannot let this one pass you by but BEWARE you seriously will not get a thing done once you start reading!

    4.5 "music is life" stars A powerful, emotional and angsty filled drama of second chance love, choices, life, finding your own path and owning it...Making a choice between two men, is no choice at all, both men carved a memo in one woman's heart, breaking it, mending it and yet their stamp was once and for all...but through it all, she needed to let go, let all of it go and find herself first and then once more...again The point where my heart wa...
  • Nicola
    I’ve read several books by Kate Stewart this year—The Brave Line introduced me to her writing and she immediately leapt onto my must-read list. I have to say though, Drive is the best I’ve read from her and I absolutely adored this story and the feelings it pulled from me. It was indeed one hell of a ride. “Take any song from the Rolodex of your life and you can pin it to a memory. It translates, resonates, and there it will remain.” I...

    Drive by Kate Stewart5 stars!!! “You have to wait one minute past desperation...” To be honest, 5 stars is not enough for this book. Out of the thousands and thousands of books I have read I have two all-time favourites that I recommend to anyone who will listen. These two books have been on that list for a long time with no stand out books that have deserved to match them…until now. I have read this book three times already, three times ...
  • Geri Reads
    I get it. I get now why there’s so much hype surrounding this book. And I have to say that that hype was earned. Drive was beautifully written, complex, and engaging. The story about Stella and the two men she loved hits you right in the feels as they say. It really does. It was captivating. I love how heroine-centric this story is. I tend to prefer dual POVs because I like getting the heroine and hero’s perspective. I did not miss the male P...

    5 'Love, life & music' Stars!ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.I wanted to write this review as soon as a finished this magnificent book (while I still was feeling extremely emotional about it) because I want you all to know about it. I've said it many times but let me say it again.. Kate Stewart is a writing genius. If you know me, you also know I am not a massive fan of love triangles. Well, you also know I am a massiv...

    “I used to think I was cursed for having fallen in love with two men. But, in hindsight, I realized what a gift this was. They were my lovers, my teachers, my best friends, and I would love them both until I took my last breath”. Well that was a journey! I’m so exhausted right now, I can’t even. Wow, Kate Stewart certainly put her all into this story and it showed. It showed within every lyrical piece, every pulsing beat, and the raw emo...
  • Alex ♈
    Double spoiler tag, don't click on the 2nd spoiler, if safety issues are not your triggers!The book was well written.IMO it was a love-triangle and it was definitely 2nd chance. Both are not my reading preferences, but I was convinced and tempted by fabulous reviews.I didn't like any character, main and side ones. But it could definitely be another case of 'it's-not-the-book-it's-me'.I won't write about my thoughts and feelings, I just point out ...

    OMFG this book.... This freaking beautiful / spectacular book literally took my breath away... 😍 I mean WOW, I feel like I just run a marathon... :DAnyway for me this was one of the best book of 2017 and I highly recommend it to you. Maybe just like me, you'll think that you read this type of books earlier but trust me, once you start to read this book, you'll see how different it is... And don't even get me start with the amazing writing styl...

    “He was my song, my soul, my everything, and his love had propelled me forward into the woman I wanted to be. And that woman would burn out with the man who was made to keep her warm.” You know how you sometimes wish you could unread a book so you could read it over and over again for the first time? This is exactly how I feel about Drive. Wow, what a book, what an amazing ride! This is without a doubt, a book that will stay with me for a whi...
