Sunny Shelly’s Review: It’s Only Temporary, by Lisa Suzanne


Title: It’s Only Temporary
Author: Lisa Suzanne
Genre: Contemporary Rock Star Romance
Release Date: June 11, 2020


It all started because of a bachelor auction.
My girlfriend was supposed to win me, but she issued an ultimatum that
resulted in the end of our relationship seconds before I took the stage.
Instead, the singer of the band I’m temporarily playing with won. I’ve
been fighting my attraction since the day I met her, and now I’m forced to take
her on a romantic date. She may be mysterious and impulsive, but our date
proves we’re more alike than I realized.
It may not matter. The woman I was with for seven years wants me back,
and I have to decide whether I want to rely on security or take a risk.
Just when I think I have it all figured out, one of them hits me with a
secret I never saw coming.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

It’s Only Temporary is another good addition to Lisa Suzanne’s interconnected standalones about the rock group MFB. This time around, we get bassist Kane’s story. We’ve gotten to know Kane throughout these books as the attached one of the bunch, having a longtime girlfriend in Sierra. So I was really interested to see where Lisa took Kane in his book. I figured that there would be some roadblock for Kane and Sierra, and we got it in the form of up-and-coming singer Ruby.

Kane has been feeling kind of off for a while. He hasn’t been totally happy with his life, and kind of complacent in his relationship with Sierra. And as his other bandmates get engaged and married and start families, Kane isn’t sure if that is what his life path holds. But a temporary job as Ruby’s bassist while MFB is on a hiatus turns his life around when she ends up winning a date with Kane at a bachelor auction.

This story was a lot to take in. Kane is faced with some difficult decisions, and whether or not he should pursue something with Ruby or try to get Sierra back is just one of them. Ruby is a great character. She’s sassy and sweet, and trying to protect a heart that has been broken by a fellow musician. She’s got some secrets of her own, and she’s hesitant to let Kane into that part of her life for quite a while. Kane struggles with a lot over the course of this book, and by the end, he makes a decision that I never saw coming… and I don’t know what to expect from the next book in this series now!

I really loved that this story was totally told from Kane’s POV. There was something about getting that front-row seat to his angst and indecision that really cemented this story for me.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
