Closer, the stunning conclusion to the Taint Duet from USA Today bestselling author Carmen Jenner is LIVE!


Levi Quinn has it all—money, groupies, a panty-melting smile, and a really big d*ck.

At least, he had it all. Until an angry redhead joined the Taint world tour and turned his life upside-down. Levi fell in love with her. His bandmate did too. It did not end well.

Brielle Kagawa doesn’t keep company with rock stars, but when this gifted cellist finds herself kicked out of the Orchestre de Parisan all-expenses-paid gig in the south of France seems too good to be true.

Because it is.

The man footing the bill might be a disorderly drunk, but he has an offer she can’t refuse—stay in his chateau and play for the month. No strings attached.

Yeah right.

The truth about rock stars is that they’re awfully good players, but Levi isn’t the only one who knows how to master a set of strings.

He’s broken-hearted.

She doesn’t have a heart to break.

She lets out a soft cry, but it isn’t one of pain, it’s another kind of anguish. It’s need. “Please let me go,” she begs.

I study her face. “I don’t think you want me to let you go.”

“You’re wrong.”

I let her wrist slip free of my grasp and search her gaze. “Prove it.”

“I do not have to prove anything to you.”

“Then quit looking at me like you want me to fuck you, because it’s torture,” I snap. A week worth of pent-up frustration, of wanting this woman who refuses to give in, and never backs down. “It’s fucking torture the way you look at me.”

“Torture?” A crease forms between her brow. Fuck, she’s hot when she’s angry. “What the hell are you talking about?”

“Just what I said. You can’t keep looking at me like that.” I take another step closer and she backs up against the door. “Or walk around in these skimpy little outfits, and you can’t be this close to me.”

“The robe was your idea, and you cornered me!”

“You’re right.” I sigh, and step back but she catches my collar in her fist and draws me closer.


Closer (Taint Duet, #2)Closer by Carmen Jenner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 out of 5 “I hate authors’ Stars

Sooooo CLOSER picked up right where REVELRY ended. I strongly recommend that you read REVELRY prior to diving into CLOSER because I feel like it would be a little confusing in the beginning or maybe not confusing so much as it’s easier to follow having read the previous book. With that being said, let the review begin!!

First off, i may just hate you a little bit Carmen Jenner!! I say that in the most loving and emotionally drained heartfelt way that can be imagined. Holy crap! I did not expect Levi’s story to be like this. I honestly thought it was going to be more of a rom-com. Nope. Not even a little. We start off this book satiating our curiosity of finding out what happened to Ali and Cooper. And while I liked Ali and Cooper from REVELRY, there was always something about Levi that tugged at my heartstrings. So I have to say that when Levi was pissed at the beginning because Ali and Cooper were getting married, I felt pissed too.

The feels that you get from reading Levi’s story caught me by surprise. I’ve been through the ultimate emotional roller coaster in this book. I was mad and sad and happy and giddy and a whole lot turned on…..but wow….the absolute heartbreak is just….you can feel it- as if it’s your own. I was super depressed for a day or two after reading the first part of the book. Like damn. How much can one guy take?

Brielle was definitely an interesting character to get paired with Levi. She was strong where he was weak and him funny where she was serious. Their interactions were nothing short of magical chemistry. She was going through her own pile of garbage while trying to navigate Levi’s as well. There was also some things that went down that I never ever saw coming. I love when a book is just so unpredictable! I’m just gutted by this amazing story. I definitely loved this more than I liked Ali and Cooper’s story. Hands down. No question.

The only question I do have is….will there be more from the men of Taint???

Happy Reading!!
