Syncopation (Twisted Wishes #1) Reviews
Anna Zabo has become one of those authors that I can one-click with complete confidence, knowing I'm in for a treat. Whether it's paranormal, writing in a romance world shared by many authors, or BDSM, Anna's writing is consistently on a level all its own. Syncopation is the start of a new series about the rock band Twisted Wishes, and I have already become a total groupie for the band and every member in it.
Each time a read a book written by this author, I find there is so much detail and reali ...more
Syncopation is rock star romance with two amazing protagonists and a bunch of really amazing secondary characters and set in a beautifully glamorous world. The book is entertaining and really captured my interest right from the first page.
Ray and Zavier are two well crafted characters who are completely different as night and day. Their dynamics and they way they compliment each other comes across right from the first page. I loved that they both were really complex and had more to the ...more
This is my first read of Anna Zabo and is a rockstar romance. Twisted Wishes is an up and coming band that is taking over music industry by storm. We have the lead singer-songwriter, Ray who is a total mess. Actually he is a very nice guy, responsible, hardworking and he is very passionate about his music. All his problem stem from their asshole manager, Carl. All the drama in the book basically caused by one person - Carl. I feel that the author gave too much credit to this villain. I don't und ...more

"Life was chaos, and Ray knew that for a fact. He'd always lived in the whirlwind.- Oh, Ray. To say I've wanted to hug him at every turn would be an understatement.
4.5 stars. Oh god, I loved this. Syncopation was my first read by Anna Zabo, but I'll be sure to read more of their books in the future. I swear, I'll be writing a full review at some point, but you should know that Syncopation :

A Joyfully Jay review.
I am always drawn to books about rock bands and I was interested to see what kind of world Zabo would create here. Ray starts out the book and is a focal point throughout. He has the contract and his band is getting better gigs, but his manager, Carl, is a nightmare and is constantly belittling Ray, and Ray feels he has no recourse. When an argument with his drummer goes viral, it’s just one more reason for Carl to come down on him. Ray will admit that he has iss ...more
Stopping at 25%. I'm interested to see how it plays out with the two heroes but I am so not a fan of the manipulative/bullyish manager as a plot element. I might pick it up another time, we'll see.
This is an atypical "review", because I don't review adult contemporary romance - I don't know the genre enough, I read very little of it, as it's full of casual microaggressions against my own existence. I'm an aromantic reviewer, and I think everyone can guess why I avoid some genres more than others. But I have read this one (because I'm aro) and I have something to say, so...
Syncopation by Anna Zabo is a m/m book in the romance genre, first in the Twisted Wishes series, which is a romance se ...more
I do have a soft spot for rock star romance, so finding one written by Anna Zabo thrilled me! They captivated me with the “Takeover” series and Anna brought their skills, as well as their style of kink, to this literary music fest. Zavier is making the leap from symphony orchestra to rock band; an easy musical change but not so much a personal one. Ray’s lingering resentment of Zavier for his Juilliard background, plus guilt from losing the first drummer is added to the pressure he’s under from ...more
