Review: Blackbird by D.T Dyllin

Two lost souls, one broken love story…
After years of struggling and enough losses to give her material for a lifetime, Kylie James has finally made it to the top of the country music charts. Nothing will stand in the way of her career. Not even threats from someone who seems to have too much information about her private life. Kylie’s seen it all before and she won’t let it slow her down again. But her manager isn’t as blasé about it.

Much to Kylie’s dismay, Noah James, her ex-husband is called in for security detail. He’s the best of the best and with Kylie’s life possibly being on the line, Noah doesn’t trust anyone else to do the job.

Kylie and Noah’s relationship is steeped in pain and regret. Young love turned sour before its expiration date. Forced to spend time together, can a wounded veteran and a country star make their love work the second time around? Or will they both continue to be their own worst enemies and completely destroy their last chance at happiness?

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

This was a hard one for me. Emotionally. I identified with Kylie. A lot. Obviously I haven't had the fame and drugs but the other stuff hit pretty close to home. There was a part of me that wanted to reach inside the book and shake her for being so bloody stupid because Noah obviously loved her, but there was a bigger part of me that knew exactly how she felt.

This book is hard hitting, but Dyllin does an amazing job of giving you a ringside seat to Kylie and her issues, without trivialising them. Kylie's story left me an emotional wreck, it actually took me a few days to pick myself up and capable of reading another, that said I would definitely read this one again.
