Warren “War” Jinkins is that guy.
The bad one.
Tempest’s ex front man, an arrogant rock god.
The only thing larger than his ego is his capacity for self-destruction.
His bad attitude has cost him. His woman. His best friend. His band.

Shaina Bentley is that girl.
The good one.
Hollywood’s pink candy-coated sweetheart.
The star of Pinky Swear, television’s top rated teen show.
She’s been practically perfect since that horrible day. But she’s starting to crack under the strain of being everything to everyone.

He’s a one man island. She’s a fragile captive soul.

Is love a current too dangerous to cross or will it be the bridge that brings them together?

*Author note: Each book in the Tempest series features a different band member and can stand alone.*

CAPTIVATING BRIDGE will be on sale at .99 for a limited time with a portion of proceeds going to: The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) a leading not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to preventing suicide.

My Review: 5 stars
Michelle keeps blowing me away with the realism, and rawness that she brings to this series. I love that in this book we get to know the demons that War has been dealing with. While I hate what he was considering, I was glad to know that Shaina somehow knew that he would save her from doing exactly what he was contemplating. Shaina has her own issues that she has to deal with, but her finding War only brings new complications to her life. I loved that War and Shaina both broke and healed each other. I loved that War found more than one reason to continue on his journey, and that he now had someone on that journey with him. I really don't want to say too much, except read this! It is an awesome book, and lets you in on not only the troubled past of War, but the bright future he found with Shaina. I loved that we got to see all the regular guys from Tempest, except Justin, but that's ok. We got to know a little more about King and Dizzy, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot more about all of them. There is a lot more that happens, and let's just say you don't want to miss this book! 
The information at the end of the book about depression was a stroke of genius to include, it's very helpful and extremetly detailed.

Michelle Mankin is the author of the Black Cat Records series of novels.
Romance with subtext.
Reimagining classic stories with sexy rock stars and thought provoking issues.
For many years she worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn't kill her but the hours and hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.
Black Cat Records in Vancouver provides the central backdrop for all of Michelle’s current novels. Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a Brutal Strength centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock 'n roll industry.
Things take a bit of an edgier, once upon a time turn with the Tempest series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.
When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.
