Fused (Lost in Oblivion 4.5) - Taryn Elliott & Cari Quinn - Review

Fused by Cari Quinn

Fused - Taryn Elliott & Cari Quinn

(Lost in Oblivion 4.5)

5 Star Review 


They’re shattered…and he’s the only one who can fuse them back together.

From the pinnacle of success to the depths of despair, the band Oblivion has been through it all. Now in the super hot conclusion to the Lost in Oblivion series, Nick Crandall, the lead guitarist and the one most likely to cause a band breakup, is the only one who can begin to put the pieces back together after the most catastrophic night of his life.

His only choice is to fight hard for what—and who—he loves.

And oh so dirty.


I love the Lost in Oblivion Series. I love the way in which Cari and Taryn have entwined the characters and stories. If you really want to understand all the character and their idiosyncrasies then its best to read the whole of the Lost in Oblivion series. Each book tells a story of a member of the band, but they are all closesly interwoven and continue with each additional book. After reading each of these books you come to love these characters as if they are real individuals, rather than fictional characters and feel for them as they face obstacles in their path to find love. To get the most of this book I would definitely recommend reading shattered beforehand. Fused picks up where Shattered left off. 

Cari and Taryn have an ability to bring the characters to life that makes you laugh out loud but also brings you to tears. As always Cari and Taryn did not disappoint this book had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish and i couldn't put it down. I really began to wonder if Nick would ever get a happy ever after. As you read Nick and Lila's story you run a gamut of emotions - frustration, empathy, hope, love, sadness. 

This is a well written story, with plenty of emotion. This pair of characters have wounded souls and emotional baggage from their pasts. Nick is true to his normal sexy arrogant form pushing buttons, in his own unique snarky way and sharing sexual innuendos. The love scenes are very hot and I don't think i will look at a strand of pearls the same way again. 

This book leaves you with quite a few unanswered questions and was more of a happy for now, rather than a happy ever after. I really hope that Nick and Lila's love is enough and and they overcome all the obstacles they face. 

Once again I loved the cameos of the other band members but also the mention of characters from "The Boss" and "Hammered". I would love to see a spin off series about the characters of "Warning Signs" as well. 

This story has a little bit of everything, hot sex, romance, heartbreak, betray and love, I look forward to reading the next book, yet dreading it all at the same time. I don't want to see the end of this amazing series that Ive been hooked on since the very first book.
