Trevor’s Song by Susan Helene Gottfried

I was first introduced to Trevor Wolff a few years back. It didn’t take long for me to swoon and dedicated myself to full Trevor Groupie status. He’s so dreamy and so hot. I mean, hello! He’s Trevor Wolff! So you may be asking yourself, who exactly Trevor Wolff is… Trevor is the brainchild of a friend of mine, Susan H Gottfried. He’s the bassist for the hottest fictional rock band in history, Shapeshifter, and he’s a bad bad bad boy. And well, that, makes my blood boil very nicely indeed.

Susan has had an interesting marketing idea behind her book. She started a blog called the Meet and Greet where we got to know Trevor and his band mates a bit, read some outtakes and swoon over the Wolff hotness. She then took those blog posts together, gave us an intro to each one and released the Demo Tapes 1 and Demo Tapes 2. It took a LONG time (not that I’m bitter) but we finally, at last, have Trevor’s Song. Was it worth the wait?

Oh, heck yeah! What a just plain fun read. It will take you back to the early 80s-90s. And for those of you sitting there shaking your head, you know you got your Poison on back in the day! Susan takes us for a wild ride through the world of Shapeshifter, making us laugh so hard we cry and learning things about Trevor and his band mates along the way. It’s a wild ride, so you want to hang on tight!

It’s not all fun, there are a few serious things going on that keep the story moving forward to a climax that left me wanting to hang the author from the nearest clothesline and beat her with a wooden broom until she spilled! The ending will leave you wanting more. I really like my stories to have a very definitive ending. I like to see it all wrapped up in a pretty blue bow and she used a pink one. So, it had an ending, but not 100% complete.

The dialogue is very well done in the book, the characters are believable and the writing is really wonderful. I had a few timeline issues and felt like the story jumped a few times and I missed it, but that I’m chalking that up to the fact that I knew so much about them and their lives beforehand. I’ve spent 4 years with them, after all. It doesn’t seem to be an issue with other reviewers. I mention it just in case others had the issue.

This is a definite must-read for anyone that had a thing for hair bands and just really needs a good fun read. Congrats, Susan!

Fame and fortune have destroyed many a rock star, but not Trevor Wolff. ShapeShifter band dynamics will never be the same even before Trevor’s two girlfriends, a world tour, and a bunch of secrets complicate life. Trevor may have to make common cause with his worst enemy — his best friend’s girl.
