If It Wasn’t For Tony is a short love story about second chances and sacrifice. It deals with many real-life issues of some of today’s relationships. After a bunch of previous relationships gone wrong, Jocelyn decides to take a break, until she meets Tony. Smart, handsome,and sexy, Tony has his eyes set on Jocelyn, and the two of them begin dating. Jocelyn is absolutely head over heels for him, not having been in a relationship for so long. Everything is great at first, but then things begin to spiral out of control. Jocelyn becomes overbearing, smothering, and always demanding of Tony’s time, while Tony is trying to have some of his own space. Of course, this doesn’t bode well for the relationship, which goes from sweet, to on again/off again. Finally, when they break up, Jocelyn decides again that she doesn’t want a relationship. That is, until she meets Bryan, who seems to be even better than Tony. Jealousy ensues from Tony, as well as Jocelyn, whom she discovers Tony found another woman, also, but Jocelyn is determined not to let Tony distract her. She still has feelings for Tony, even though she’s trying so hard to get over him. Toward the end of the book, there was a serious twist that created an unexpected turn of events which drove this story into more of an HFN ending.

My Review:
★★☆☆☆ (2 / 5 stars)

When I picked up this book, I was hoping for a nice, self-contained short read. I realized that this book was the first in a series, but I wasn’t expecting for it to be an actual ‘serial’ book that leaves you with a cliffhanger and you have to purchase the next few ‘books’ (which are just 4 or 5 chapters’ worth each) to read what happens next. That said, I can’t say I actually enjoyed the book with what little I was able to read. Drezden and Lola are the two main characters of this New Adult rockstar romance. They formally meet via an audition when one of the guitarists in Drezden’s band is kicked out. Lola naturally wows Drezden and his bandmates, and there’s a hint of romantic connection between them. Nothing really comes out of this relationship during this first book, other than an incident in the bathroom, but if you are looking for anything sensual, you will be disappointed. The last chapter pretty much abruptly ends with Drez fantasizing about Lola in his private room.
