Toxic by Meghan Quinn – Review


“You’re an addiction I can’t overcome, no matter how hard I try.” – Rook Tyler

His life consists of his best friend, Jack Daniels, his favorite drug of choice and women. Rook Tyler lives for performing at night and wasting the rest of his days washing away the pain from his childhood so he doesn’t have to feel anything…ever. The only people he trusts are his band mates from Shattered Souls and he wants to keep it that way. His life was completely under control and simple until he heard the voice of Maisy Madison filter through The Tavern speakers.

Growing up in the foster care system with her two other band mates from Twisted Perfection, Maisy finds herself doing pretty much anything to get her and her band noticed but nothing seems to be working. One lucky night, Shattered Souls, the most popular band in the country, decides to show up at their little concert and luckily signs them on the spot. But the arena venues and massive amount of fans isn’t what has Maisy shaking in her heels. It’s the deep baritone voice of Rook Tyler that has haunted her dreams for years which has her wondering if she can actually go through with the tour.

The force is almost too strong. He can feel her everywhere he goes and no matter how much he tries to resist her, he finds himself gravitating towards Maisy, wanting to hold her, kiss her and touch her. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. He knows no matter what, he will end up hurting her but he can’t help it, his soul is connected to hers and the pull is too strong for him to resist.

Rook warned her time and time again but she doesn’t listen, she doesn’t want to listen. She needs him and she doesn’t care that she knows deep down in her heart that their relationship is going to end in disaster.She refuses to acknowledge that no matter what they do, their love is toxic.


I finished this book in about 12 hours, and I have to say, I don’t do that at all very often. In fact, I stayed up until 2am, just to get to the end.

And my god, what an ending. I wanted to drag Rook off that book and punch him in the face (if I was Maisey, probably would have), but, hey, I’ll be honest, I had the same feelings for about 9/10ths of the book. My god, what an ass. A perfect match, Ms Quinn!

This is a story about a wonderfully sweet romance (much like my own), marred by the scars of the past and the actions of the present (kind of like my own). There was so much of myself and my fiancé that I can see in Maisey and Rook, and in Quinn and Grey. that it’s kind of a relief to see that there’s others like that.

All in all, one of the most awesome books I have ever read. i never, ever do this, but…    5.5/5
