About the Author-

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.

Captivating Bridge by Michelle Mankin
I haven’t read the first two books, but it wasn’t needed to read the book. It was completely stand-alone even though there were others I didn’t know a lot about. Michelle Mankin is going on my auto read list after this read.  The characters were so real they make you feel every emotion as they play out. 
The writing had depth that brought dimension to the book.  You will laugh, cry, scream, and punch your pillow among other things.  Some of the situations are so *real* I had tears making it hard to continue reading. 

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
