After the death of her twin brother, nineteen year old guitar prodigy Avery Jones finds herself desperate, alone, and out of options.

So Avery and her manager Trevor come up with a plan involving a Bieber haircut and men's clothing. No one seems to be onto their little con. But what happens when Avery starts falling for Marcus? Will she be able to continue with the farce or will the whole thing come crashing down around her like a deck of cards. Love Evolution is a rock star romance based on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It is the first book in the Black Cat Records series.

About Michelle Mankin

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.

Our customer reviews

It was interesting. Reminded me of the Koreanovela He's Beautiful (which I love, by the way). I really dig the whole girl-disguised-as-a-guy thing, although if you think about it, it definitely wouldn't work in real life, right? Physical differences and everything. But anyway, all that aside, I really enjoyed Love Evolution. I liked the chemistry between Avery and Marcus even when Avery was pretending to be a guy. I also admire her talent. I'm a sucker for talented characters. I just wished Avery's character had more substance. Sure, she lost her twin brother and was in a debt with some mobster, but somehow I couldn't sympathize with her. I connected more with Marcus. I think he's a pretty awesome character despite his mess in the past. Or maybe because of that, and the fact that he managed to pick himself up. It was also interesting that Marcus has been skeptical about female guitarists yet unknowingly lets one in the band. Oh, the irony of it. Beautiful. I liked the pace of the story, the turn of events, the anticipation leading to the moment when Avery reveals the truth to Marcus. I also found some things quite funny, like when Avery "showed" Dwight and JR that she's a girl. Their reactions were hilarious. I liked the tension, the drama, the angst. I liked Mary and Trevor and Rheta. Fantastic characters. I really enjoyed Love Evolution. Makes me want to read more good music-themed novels. Rock on!show more
