Shane Maxton is front man for New York City’s popular rock band, Mad World. But he has secrets; he’s not what everybody thinks he is.
He comes from an ancient world, from a different time, when angels walked among men.
Read the story, through Shane’s eyes, of his forbidden love, his fall from grace and his inner turmoil from living with the irrational emotions of being human.
I just don’t know what to say. This book was purely amazing! I loved it for the first shining page and Christine Zolendz, you’re one of my favorite authors ever! I just love your series and I think Scars and Songs is the best book I’ve read this year. It’s awesome to be in Shane’s head and now I must have my fangirling moment so don’t kill me.
OH MY! IT’S SHANE FREAKIN’ MAXTON!!! AND I JUST FOUND OUT WHAT HE THINKS! I’VE JUST BEEN IN HIS HEAD! AND HE IS SEXIER THAN HE SEEMS! I CAN’T BELIEVE HE WAS AN ANGEL BECAUSE WITH THOSE THOUGHTS… BUT HE IS SHANE, THE-FREAKING-LEAD-SINGER-OF-MAD-WORLD!
Okay, I’m done now J And I’ll start with the characters. I have to say that I totally love Lea. She is my favorite character because she is hilarious. I don’t know from where come her ideas but when she opens her mouth, the readers are laughing out loud. She is a real friend and she cares very much about Grace. She knows her story and she knows about her forbidden love. And she knows that Shane loves Grace, so she is trying to put them together, even sometimes she is a little annoying because she interrupted a few hot moments between Shane and Grace. But like I said, she is hilarious 🙂
‘’Oh, my God, Grace. Shane is completely eye fucking you and I’m creaming in my panties right now. How does that not affect you?’’
‘’Yeah, well, don’t let your thighs rub to close together, because you look like you’re about to have a walking orgasm,’’
‘’You two are making me feel like I need to wear a condom over my head so I can’t get pregnant from just listening to the both of you.’’
Alex is the other favorite character because he is very funny. He cares about Grace too and he makes fun of her, but he is Alex, everyone knows how he is. He also knows that Shane loves Grace and he tries to put them together too, so he speaks often with double meaning and he is a little pissed when he sees that Shane doesn’t tell Grace what he really feels.
‘’Okay, Shane. What the fuck did you eat for lunch, a narcissist burger whit a side of self-esteem issue fries and a whiny ass frilly beer? You sound like a freaking girl.’’
‘’Dude, the next thing you’ll be asking me is how fat your ass looks in a dress and if the highlights in your hair make your eyes sparkle. Don’t let Grace slip through your fingers because you’re a chicken shit cry-baby, that’s not the Shane Maxton I know. And if you start wearing glitter and lip gloss, you’re out of the band.’’
Tucker is an ass and he’ll always be. He doesn’t realize that he is pathetic and Grace is terrorized by his freaking-drunk-boy words. He thinks that if he has money, the world is at his feet and he could buy anything with champagne and luxury trips. But he is megalomaniac and he doesn’t see that Grace is trying to stay away from him.
”Were you dropped on your head as a baby or did your mother just throw you against a wall?”
I was a little pissed with Ethan because he accused Shane for hurting Grace. He should know better because he was Shane’s friend and he knows him! He cares a lot about Grace and I think he has a crush for her, but he should believe his friend. Shane would never hurt Grace.
Conner was a great friend for Shane and a great boyfriend for Lea. He cares about Grace too and he also knew about Shane’s feelings for her. He trusted his friend when everyone accused him and he gave him advices. He was also terrified when Lea’s parents told them they want six grandsons and they even gave them names. And the silly Lea told them in a game that Conner is eating his children.
Everyone knew about Shane’s feeling for Grace but Grace. Their relationship was so complicated and there was so much sexual tension…
‘’Lea is right; watching you guys is like watching porn and eating candy.’’
After they were far away for each other for over two thousand years, when they found each other, they were separated again. And now Shane must win her heart all over again. Her feelings for her are so deep, that everyone who is watching them feels embarrassed. They are so in love with each other and took them so much until they discovered this. When they are close to each other, it’s like they have sex from the eyes. The tension between them is palpable and everyone is aware of it. But Grace keeps pulling Shane away. In the beginning because she is looking after Shamsiel and after because her angel left her. But Shane is everything she needs and she discovered that so late.
Shane’s heart was broken. He was desperate and he loved Grace so much that he was a little possessive. It’s interesting to be in his head, to know what is in his soul. He was broken until he met Grace and then she broke his heart all over again, but in the end, their love won. He was so in love with her that he didn’t sleep with anyone from the moment Grace came in that bar. His mind was always on Grace and his soul was incomplete without her. He was so damaged!
Their moments together were so intense…When they kissed, everyone was staring and it was like watching porn for them (like Lea said) and they finally had sex but after that Gabriel came and ruined everything. He is a piece of shit and he almost killed Shane! But in those moments, they were in heaven (Shane’s words partially).
”Grace Taylor, I am going to kiss you right now and you are not going to run away from me, because you have no excuse now. Then you are going to go back upstairs to bed and all you are going to think about are my fucking lips on yours and nothing else. Not strange men that want to hurt you, or buy you drinks, not Ryan, not Tucker, not even Ethan. I swear to you, Grace, I will not let you think of anything or anyone else until I put my lips back there again. Only mine.”
The end was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and I cried. Happy tears, of course, but there could be another book because it was a little mysterious. I hope there will be the 4th book too because this series is amazing! I highly recommend you this book and this series. You won’t regret it! Even I thought that I wouldn’t like this book so much because is the same action, but from Shane’s POV, I love it and I think I like it more than the other two books in the series. A boy has another mind than a girl and it’s kind of amazing to know how much stupidity they can have in their minds sometimes. I enjoyed reading this book and I hope soon will be another out because that end was suspicious 🙂
