Synopsis



My name is Arturo King, and I’m told I’m a legend in music. My band is called the Nights and we got our start at the underground Round Table in New York City. Raised by a foster father, I didn’t know the extent of my inheritance until I was twenty-one, and it was all more than I bargained for. I wanted to play the guitar and rule the world with song, but I learned I have a mother from old money, a dead father who was once a real estate mogul, and a record company that needed some rebuilding. Mure Linn, my friend and mentor, has been by my side through it all, teaching me to play, strengthening my lyrics, and guiding me in the music industry. There was one area he couldn’t guide me, though, and that was love. Guinevere DeGrance changed everything for me, I suppose, including the reason I’m here learning the legend of my life without remembering any of it.



The legendary rock star series begins…

YM’s Review:

Let preface this by saying, this is my FIRST time reading this author. No earthly idea who she is, or where she cometh from, but I will DEF be following bc I DRANK that kool-aid
I don’t know what to say about this book.

I know I need to review it, blah, blah blah.
This book. I know wont be for everyone. However……….I kind of have a thing for literature, so SUE me. But honestly, I don’t care. bahaha.

It’s not about you. It’s about me. hee, hee
I LOVED EVERYTHING about this book. It was perfect. First, I was a lil thrown off by the names, (just a lil bitty bit) but honestly it was just unreal how well it was written.

Arturo was HAWT rockstar with a sordid past and questionable beginning in life. Guinevere, or Guinie, is the beautiful, untainted daughter of someone important to the story(yeah, I am NOT big into providing spoilers, so just read the damn thing……too much? uh, no……mkay moving on)….Guinie is struggling to find her way in life and Arturo is the womanizer that was just ready for the right girl to come along.(In real life, it sucks when you’re with the guy and he isnt ready, but when he’s ready….OH MAN!! What a treat for the girl after you, because you have done some prepping………but, I digress)

The way the story flowed was seamless. The characters were old AND new, beautiful and flawed and incredibly well written. The love story was beautiful, passionate and unforgettable.(Hey, the sexy time didn’t suck either) hee, hee.

Listen, to me the story just worked and showcased the author’s unequivocal talent. The ability to be able to take a story and flip it, make it different while still maintaining it’s original purity, is unparalleled. I have not read anything like this, and have not see it done. Yes, I know that people “recreate” fairy tales or Romeo and Juliet all the time. This wasn’t that. This was just different.

Every once in a while, you read THAT story that you know will stay with you. You read THAT story that blows you away. You read THAT story that you want EVERYONE to read. THAT story that you NEED to talk about…….yeah, this is it for me. Legend of Arturo King was just beautiful, flawless. I honestly don’t know if it’s because I love the classics, but I feel this should BE a romantic classic that people read. I hope people aren’t thrown off by the unconventionality of the story.

Now, WHEN THE HELL DOES THE STORY CONTINUE!!! I need more!!!

 

 

About L.B. Dunbar
 
I’d like to say I was always a writer. I’d also like to say that I wrote every day of my life since a child. That I took the teaching advice I give my former students because writing every day improves your writing. I’d like to say I have my ten-thousand hours that makes me a proficient writer. But I can’t say any of those things. I did dream of writing the “Great American Novel” until one day a friend said: Why does it have to be great? Why can’t it just be good and tell a story?
 

 

As a teenager, I wrote your typical love-angst poetry that did occasionally win me an award and honor me with addressing my senior high school class at our Baccalaureate Mass. I didn’t keep a journal because I was too afraid my mom would find it in the mattress where I kept my copy of Judy Blume’s Forever that I wasn’t allowed to read as a twelve year old.


 

 

I can say that books have been my life. I’m a reader. I loved to read the day I discovered “The Three Bears” as a first grader, and ever since then, the written word has been my friend. Books were an escape for me. An adventure to the unknown. A love affair I’d never know. I could be lost for hours in a book.


 

 

So why writing now? I had a story to tell. It haunted me from the moment I decided if I just wrote it down it would go away. But it didn’t. Three years after writing the first draft, a sign (yes, I believe in them) told me to fix up that draft and work the process to have it published. That’s what I did. But one story let to another, and another, and another. Then a new idea came into my head and a new story line was created. 


 

 

I was accused (that’s the correct word) of having an overactive imagination as a child, as if that was a bad thing. I’ve also been accused of having the personality of a Jack Russell terrier, full of energy, unable to relax, and always one step ahead. What can I say other than I have stories to tell and I think you’ll like them. If you don’t, that’s okay. We all have our book boyfriends. We all have our favorites. Whatever you do, though, take time for yourself and read a book.
