  • Geri Reads
    4 stars!I got hooked on this series after reading A Lush Betrayal. I didn't like Tammy at all in A Lush Betrayal but I did pity her. So I really have no idea how I'll react to her in this book. Fortunately, I ended up liking this book and liking Tammy as well. And Walsh, of course. I still liked the first book better though because Mel's character is more relatable to me but other than, the all the emotions I felt reading the first book is still ...

    5 AMAZING STARS!!!This book picks up where A Lush Betrayal left off. Walsh, former drummer for Lush, is living at the Double A Ranch and taking life one day at a time now that his music career seems to be over. He is focusing on working hard and staying sober. Tammy shows up at the Ranch to see if Walsh is willing to give her another try. Walsh doesn't know that he can go back down that path with Tammy but admits that he still loves her, so she d...

    Sad. Heartbreaking. Loving. Sweet. Swoon Worthy. Sexy. This book picks up right where A Lush Betrayal ended. Joss and Mel's story was great, but I LOVED Tammy and Walsh's even more! I couldn't tear myself away from this book. I'm in awe of their love.Tammy and Walsh, the drummer for Lush, have been in love since they were 14. She's always felt like part of the band, right along with the guys, because she's been there from the beginning and now he...

    I don't know how Laurence does it, but she just gets better every time. One thing that continually impresses me about the author is her deep understanding of human nature and the way she finds just the right words to convey it on paper. She always find a way to tackle the tough issues with grace and understanding.It was great to see my favorite characters back in action again and Walsh is my new favorite hero! The heartbreak between Walsh and Tam...

    ***ARC PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***This was an amazing book about two broken people trying to recover, heal, and move on with their lives. This book deals with some seriously hard issues and readers should caution themselves before reading it. With that said, I loved this book. I loved the way the author handled these delicate issues because so many people face them every day.When we met Walsh and Tammy in book one, it seemed as t...

    I thought A Lush Betrayal (Lush #1)with Joss was bad on my heart and emotions but I was wrong. Walsh has my head spinning and this ride is worse than any roller coaster. But well worth it. After the betrayal of Joss and Tammy, Walsh leaves, them and the band. He goes to a ranch in Texas for recovering alcoholics. Mike follows him, a band member that wants to be there if he needs a friend. Walsh seems to be doing OK until Tammy shows up and he fal...

    5 Glowing Stars!!Selena Laurence does it again - Hold onto your heart strings ladies!!Being part of Selena's fantastic street team I received an ARC of this book I couldn't wait to get started on it.This is Walsh & Tammy's story. Walsh is the drummer of the recently split band Lush and if you've read (book 1) A Lush Betrayal, then you will know where this book picks up from. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so will try not to go into too much ...

    Six months after their world fell apart, Walsh hangs on to his sobriety by a thread and Tammy will do anything to get the man she has loved most of her life to forgive her and start again, but love is complicated and it may not be enough to fix their broken lives.Honestly, I was only going to read a chapter of this book to get a feel for it then start the series from the beginning. But after I started, I just couldn't put it down which is somewha...

    I love everything about this series. Walsh and Tammy have this amazing relationship before everything went south. They had been together forever and still felt the same way about each other. They were ingrained in each others DNA. But when the truth about Tammy and Joss came out, Walsh couldn't take it. He needed to get away from Tammy and everything else and focus on himself and not going back to drinking. Tammy had time and therapy to get over ...
  • Sarah :)
    Amazing, I absolutely loved Walsh and Tammy's story, even more so than Joss and Mel's!Full of angst, love, betrayal, heartbreak and the ability to forgive, I couldn’t put this one down.Will be continuing on with this series that for sure as i cant wait to know what the future lie ahead for the rest of the band members.Defiantly a must read!

    Selena does it again! I thought that Book One was the greatest read ever and this book is even better!! I was trapped in this book from start to finish just like the first one. This is a full book.

    Tammy is one selfish minded little girl
  • MsChris1161
    FOR THE LOVE OF A LUSH by Selena Laurence is a beautifully written depiction of friendship, heartbreak, addiction, recovery, redemption and true love that stands the test of time and trials. This second book in the LUSH series tells the story of Walsh and Tammy, and the other members of the rock band LUSH who had all been lifetime friends, but have now been torn apart by addiction and betrayal. This book can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly...
  • Tiffany Willams
    "I'm still human enough to be ashamed, still in love enough to be destroyed."My goodness. Betrayal and addiction are too powerful things. For Walsh and Tammy, these two things have controlled their lives for way too long. They fell in love when they were just 14 years old, and they thought nothing would ever break them apart.Addiction. It can come in many forms. For Walsh, it was alcohol. He started drinking at a young age and it only got worse. ...

    If I could give this book a million stars, I would...it's that good! It picks up with the aftermath and consequences that occurred in the first book. Walsh and Tammy are both very damaged souls that are in great pain. This is what makes this story so special to me. It's about two utterly broken souls that have been intertwined most of their lives and how they decide to move on...either apart or fighting their own demons to make it back to each ot...
  • Mandy
    5 out of 5I knew this book was going to be a hard one emotionally to read. The good ones usually are, but this book. Sigh. This book gets the emotions just right. Walsh and Tammy have a lot of history and I don’t think there is a single character who hasn’t been a pivotal part of that history. Lush, the band, is no more and the members who were once a family are all at different crossroads in healing and finding their new paths. Tammy and Wal...
  • A little birdie told me...
    As for the second book in this series, I have to say I had a hard time with this one. The sheer deviation both characters feel from the fall out of the reveal in the first book was nearly too much to read. Pretty soon into the roller coaster, I was rooting for them to just break it off and be done. Character motives were often unclear. Without spoilers to shed light onto the specifics, I will say that I often felt confused, needing to read parts ...

    This book deals with addiction, infidelity, recovery, heartache, and most of all the strength of the human spirit, while one is battling their inner demons and how to truly forgive and move past the hurt and anger.The author tackled two extremely difficult topics; alcoholism and infidelity and she did an excellent job of showing how the characters each had to overcome these challenges.The book is packed with a lot of emotion and characters the re...

    Tammy and Walsh, wow what a roller coaster. I was not a fan of Tammy's in the first book of this series. However in this book you really come to understand her. Even though I do not condone her actions that led to where her and Walsh are at you can see why it happened. Walsh and Tammy have been together since they were 14 years old, they were the perfect couple so much in love. However even their love couldn't keep the demons at bay for Walsh and...
  • Michele
    What can I say about this book? There is absolutely not one thing I didn't like about it. I seriously adore this series and these characters and am dreading the day the series ends. The characters are so fleshed out and three dimensional that I feel as if they are friends of mine. Can I just say how much I love Walsh?! My love for him knows no bounds. He was flawed, struggling, and at times just a big old mess, but yet still sweet, caring, irresi...
  • Randi
    After reading A Lush Betrayal, I couldn't wait for this book! I have to say it didn't disappoint! I loved the continuation of Walsh and Tammy's story. It held up to what I was expecting and them some. This story just goes to pprove what true love is really about. If it's really true love, it can hold up to anything and eveything. It was nice to see Walsh make amends with the band and of course with Tammy. It was so touching when he finally just g...
  • Bev Fasig
    Though I had a difficult time getting into the rhythm of the first and second books in this series, I did enjoy the story line. When books are written in first person, I have a harder time sticking with them. Also, in both of these books, the chapters alternated back and forth between the two main characters. As I am not used to this format, I think it somewhat detracted from the story line for me. However, by the end of this second book I found ...
  • Bette Hansen
    An incredible book dealing with the power of addiction, love and betrayal and the ability to survive them all. Lush's story continues in the second book of the series. After the heartbreak suffered by everyone at the end of book one, this book takes us on the journey of how each character deals with the truths that were exposed and what comes next. Beautifully written, the love and heartache felt most by Walsh and Tammy seep from every page. You ...
  • Shauna Allen
    Wow, my friend Selena is a phenom! Her Lush series is a beautiful, sexy, emotional roller coaster ride via a hot rock band and their women. For the Love of a Lush is a sweet story of young love that endures, pain, betrayal and forgiveness, as well as a sensitive portrayal of addiction. Nicely done...a must read!

    Nel primo libro avevo amato e odiato il personaggio di Tammy è quello che aveva fatto.Qui rincorre la seconda possibilità e il perdono di Walsh e non sarà facile arrivare a un punto.Ho rivalutato molto anche il personaggio di Mike che nel primo libro era stato un emerito cazzone. Qui lo troviamo cambiato e maturato e non vedo l’ora di leggere la sua storia.Poi c’è Walsh... che dire... bel personaggio, molto introspettivo e pieno di sorpre...
