Another Postcard by Elle Christensen

  Brooklyn Hawk is an enigma. Highly sought after for her incredible voice, her talent shines bright in the studio. But a dark past and a secret she holds close to her heart keep her from permanently stepping into the limelight. Until her favorite band offers her the chance to chase her dreams. As the lead singer for rock sensation Stone Butterfly, Levi Matthews is wary of bringing in new talent. But he has heard just how amazing Brooklyn is and when the need for another singer arises, he’s confident that she is the perfect addition. However, he doesn’t count on laying his heart at her feet. But the world of music can be as dangerous as it is thrilling. Joining Stone Butterfly on tour was hard enough for Brooklyn, but when she finally succumbs to Levi’s charms, the rock ‘n’ roll life turns deadly. Will Levi and Brooklyn keep their voices and their hearts entwined? Or will the music prove too hard to survive?  







Just inside the door, I put my hand on her arm to halt her exit. “Dinner?” “Nope.” “Lunch tomorrow?” Brooklynn sighed and turned to walk away, but there was a smile flirting around her mouth. I grabbed her arm to stop her again, pulled her inside and shoved the door shut. Walking her backward, I crowded her up against a wall. Having caught her by surprise, she didn’t protest when I dove my fingers into her hair and angled her head. I didn’t give her any time for her mind to catch up, covering her mouth with my own. She gasped, and I took advantage of the moment, my tongue entering her mouth to lick and tangle with hers. I groaned at her taste, it was fucking incredible, and I knew I was instantly addicted. Her hands had been at her sides but they slowly crept up over my chest, to hold on to my shoulders as though they were the only thing holding her up. I combed my fingers through her hair and then they traveled down to splay across her back, pressing her body forward and flush with mine. Fuck, she felt good. My erection was on the brink of exploding, so hard it was almost painful to breathe. I had to stop before I reached a point of no return. I knew I could seduce her right out of her clothes at that moment, but she’d never forgive me. No, we’d fuck when she wanted it with a clear mind. I backed off of the kiss and then slowly withdrew completely. She was dazed and mussed up, looking like she’d just been thoroughly kissed. It was a look I hoped to see on her more often. I cupped her face and waited until the fog dissipated from her chocolate orbs. “How about I cook you breakfast?” I grinned roguishly and winked. “Are you kidding me?” she scoffed at my cheesy line.
I just shrugged and grinned. It was worth a shot


I’m a love of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance. I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books. I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter, and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for attention. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!  






Another Postcard by Elle Christensen is not only the first book in the new series called “Stone Butterfly Rockstars” but also the first book I read from this author.

In its Blurb Brooklynn the female lead is described as an enigma. And I would like to use that word not only for this character but basically for the complete book. It was not a bad story or badly written – no not at all but I think (or at least it felt to me like that) as if the author was undecided if she wanted to create a Rockstar romance or a romantic suspense novel.

And unfortunately the connection between those two genres did not go smoothly in this story.

While there was a lot going on some parts of the story where handled a little to fast and felt “constructed”. Unfortunately especially the love story between the leads was one of these plot strings that felt to instant which is not my thing at all. And the other one was the “plot twist” that I will not mention due to spoilers.

I can not help myself but it felt like “plastic” when I would have expected something more solid. In total this is an interesting story that is well developed its just that I could not really connect to certain parts of it and that is a very important issue for me.

I am still giving this story a full 4 stars but they are more like 3.5. – One star deducted is because of the missing connection and feelings for me and the 0.5 is because the plot twist felt to constructed and forced.

But still I am pretty sure that there will be many people loving this story because it is simply more unique than others of this genre and I am looking forward to what the author will come up with next.
