Release Day Bliyz: Full Circle by Laramie Briscoe


First comes love
Then comes marriage
Now? The baby carriage

Garrett and Hannah Thompson have a lot going on. They have a baby on the way, Garrett’s on tour, and Hannah’s enjoying being a wife and a soon-to-be mother.

But with them nothing is ever easy. Paparazzi still want the inside scoop, Jared and Shell still have issues, and there’s her pesky record company that they have to deal with.

Luckily for them, all that’s ever mattered is that they love each other. The other stuff is always secondary—except when it isn’t, and it’s thrust to the forefront of their lives.

Life is never easy, especially for those who live it in the public eye. Sometimes they have to take a step back, take a deep breath, and let it all come full circle.

4 Star Review by Lisa Kane

I've been a fan of Ms. Briscoe's Rockin' Country series since I picked up the first book. By most accounts, sweet Southern songbird, Hannah "Harmony" Stewart  should have nothing I common with Garrett " Reaper" Thompson. His band, Black Friday is edgy and far removed from the kind of songs she sings. But they make it work- together. They have fought, and clawed their way from day one to be together and the two are married and going to have a baby. 

Full Circle does an interesting take on the year the story follows. The book begins at an all day music fest that Black Friday is playing. It's here Garrett announces Hannah's pregnancy. But then we are taken back a year to all the events that led up to this point and a little beyond it. It's a unique spin. 

Hannah and Garrett's relationship is rock solid. This book has some mild angst, mostly having to do with Hannah's health, but most of the angst comes from Jared (Garrett's band mates who has battled substance abuse) and Shel (Hannah's best friend) Hannah and Garrett are more interested in keeping her pregnancy out of the press. Ever since their marriage, they have been hounded by the paparazzi hell bent on getting any kind of story on them. 

Full Circle has a few steamy, sexy scenes, especially those involving Garrett's more dominant personality. Seems he has been keeping some of his more primal instincts hidden from Hannah. But he lets her see them in this book! 

Just like the rest of the series, Full Circle delivers. This couple has the HEA that they had to fight to get and they aren't about to lose it. The next installment is about Jared and Shel and I know the angst over Jared's poor choices is going to be off the charts! 

“Are you nervous?”

They had successfully made it into the limo and were in the long line of cars that would take them to the red carpet. Garrett had asked the question quietly, with a whisper she almost couldn’t hear.

“Not with you here, I’m not. If I were by myself I would be.” She grasped their hands together. “With you, I feel like I have my strength.”

“I’m a little nervous.” He squeezed her hand. “Only because I want this to happen for you. I could give a shit what people think about me, but you deserve this. You deserve the recognition and for everyone else to see how amazing you are.”

She swallowed roughly against the lump in her throat. “I don’t need it. As long as you tell me things like that, I know things are perfect.”

“I know you don’t need it, but I want it for you.”

There was a knock on the window, and they were interrupted by one of the production assistants for the Grammys who directed them on how they should get out of the car and greet the reporters. It was the first in a long line of things they would be told to do for the night.

They exited the limo and made their way onto the red carpet. As soon as they stood in front of the press line, they couldn’t hear anything other than their names.

“How much does this remind you of the first night we met?” he whispered in her ear.

She smiled, leaning up to kiss him on the cheek, causing the crowd of photographers to go wild. “Best night of my life.”
