Release Day Blitz-Trailer-My Review: The Hysterics by Kristen Hope Mazzola





Once upon a time, I was Fallon Dunbar.


Rock and roll, drugs, and bad decisions were the life I lived.



I’d fallen so deep into the dark rabbit hole that I was certain I would never make it out alive. People like me didn’t get second chances. People like me didn’t get lifted from the darkness. So when the opportunity showed up, I had to take it.
I walked away from everything I loved, everything that was killing me, and I became Fae Dunham. After that, I hid behind makeup, long sleeves, and a closed-off heart.

All was well until I met Dane Pearson. He wasn’t convinced of the new me, and whenever he was near, I felt like the old me, the real me, filled with passion and a love for music. Every day was a struggle of self-discovery. Every day was a fight to not fall back down the rabbit hole. And every day, somehow, someway, I slowly began to discover what it meant to find myself.

It was a hysteric ride, but it was ours. And I wouldn’t change a thing.

FALLON
I was Fallon Dunbar.
I was a drummer.
I was confident, strong, and driven.
I was a junkie.
I am dead.

The full boxes scattered around my small one room apartment made it feel more real. The sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach made it feel so wrong. The new title and job made it feel surreal.

I am Fae Dunham.
I am the assistant editor of Raging Underground.
I am unsure, nervous, and scared shitless.
I am in recovery.

Staring into the full length mirror I had just hung up on the back of the door in my new room, I saw the shell of what I used to be, the life I could no longer have. The only traces left of my old life were the lips piercing I refused to take out. They were my favorites and they were staying. People like me don’t get second chances, but for some reason, I was standing knee-deep in one.

There’s no turning back now.
I will live again.

MY THOUGHTS~ 
I was provided with a Review Copy/ARC for review.

As usual, Author Kristen Hope Mazzola, blew me away with this book! The Hysterics is an awesome read. I couldn't put it down. It hooked from the start and never let go until the end. It even left me thinking about it after the last page. I love that in a book.

I absolutely LOVE books about music & romance. Granted, this is NOT your regular rock-star-meets-love-interest read. Nope. This story is incredibly original! Creating a truly unique and original "rock star" story line cannot be any easy feat with all the books of that kind out there today. KHM nailed it though! 

The writing is superb as expected from this author and the characters are very well developed. In all honesty, I want more! Not sure if this planned to be a standalone or if maybe we'll get a spin-off. I so hope we get a spin-off or even a continuation of the main characters story. 

Read this book! You won't regret it! Promise <3 p="">


You want to know more about me? Well, let's see...
I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time "day job" and by night I am author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.
Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I'd like or just to shoot the, well you know.
A portion of all my royalties are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.
