Blog Tour, Excerpt & Review ~ Everything by Erin Noelle


Meet Everett (A sexy rock star) who falls for Belle (his new teacher), in this Rocker/Student/Teacher Romance.


Book Description:

Music was was part of my DNA, pumping hard through my veins, resonating deep within my bones. Not surprising, considering my dad was a global rock star and my mom had the voice of a fallen angel.

With my twin sister by my side in our indie-rock duo, Singed Wings, we were ready to finally see our name in lights when we opened for the hottest act to sell out stadiums – Jobu’s Rum Summer Reunion Tour.

The life I’d always wanted was finally within my reach. All I had left to do was finish out my last semester of high school. 

But there was one problem: Ms. Sloan, the new art history teacher. 

The same Ms. Sloan I’d met as Belle, the sexy little pixie who’d captivated me at a New Year’s Eve concert last year. 

The same Ms. Sloan who’d owned nearly every one of my thoughts since that night.

The same Ms. Sloan whose class I was in danger of failing. 

With my dream gig dangling just on the other side of that cap and gown, all of my focus should’ve been on my school work and improving my music as I prepared for my big shot to rock the world…

But I never expected her to rock mine first… and to change everything.

Everything is a standalone novel. It is a spin-off from the Book Boyfriend Series.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“Life is all about timing, and it’s not our time.”

Well, after finishing Everything by Erin Noelle I was left with a grin from ear to ear, despite the journey this author takes us on to get there Erin Noelle never fails to deliver that award winning smile at the end. Her stories are always beautiful, with the cutest characters, men to swoon after and heroines you want to be best friends with and Everything had it all.

“Don’t make promises when you’re happy or decisions when you’re mad.”

Everything is a spin off from The Book Boyfriend series and can be read as a standalone. This book covers Everett, who is the son of Mason and Scarlett who we met originally in Metamorphosis. Everett was not your typical teenager, having been brought up with the fame surrounding his dad, he was an old soul, old before his time, grounded, responsible and musically talented. He was well aware of the pitfalls of fame and fortune and was adamant to keep himself on the straight and narrow, no partying, no drunken debauchery, no groupies…he wasn’t a square by any stretch but he didn’t want to kill his career before it had even started.

Everett and his twin sister, Ashlynn have their own band called Singed Wings, supported by their parents they are making a name for themselves and are both super talented. They have a regular gig at the bar and the locals love them. It is while playing on stage that Belle first catches Everett’s attention and from that moment, the boy was a goner. Everett’s eye had never been caught, no one had ever made him want to take a detour from his path that he had firmly laid, but Belle made him want to do everything.

Belle was adorable, she was tiny at five foot, but what she lacked in height she made up for in personality. She was her own person, with a dress sense to match, she was a cute little pixie. Belle had been burned in the past, badly and was now starting a new life to escape everything she wanted to leave behind. New state, new job, new life. In the interim she is staying with her best friend (their banter was hilarious) until she can find her feet and it is on their first night out for New Year’s that Everett catches her eye. Having sworn off men for years she cannot believe her eye is twitching and with a new found confidence she goes in search of her “Rockstar.”

“We can talk about a lot of things, Linds, but I draw the line at my juices. A girl’s gotta keep some things to herself.”

Later on

“…Lindsey didn’t need to worry any longer. My juice was freshly squeezed as of ten seconds ago.”

Everett is nearly eighteen and Belle is twenty-five, even though neither look their age with Belle looking younger than her years and Everett looking older. The instant connection that these two have was tangible, it radiated off the pages and sizzled and burned the more you read. This wasn’t an insta love, but definitely a touch of insta lust, but these two take their time to get to know one another first and foremost and the course of their relationship is one huge fact finding mission in more ways than one. After that night on New Year’s they both couldn’t stop thinking about the other but the next time they meet is the biggest shock of all…Art History lesson, period six.

“Art History had never been an interest of mine, but I was about to pay more attention in a class than I ever had before. I was ready to earn my A, and with any luck, I’d later be rewarded with an O.”

Yes, this is the forbidden romance, student/teacher, older woman, younger man but this was just the cutest read ever. As I said above, Everett was an old soul, he was responsible, knew how to treat a woman and when he fell, he fell and loved hard. He had kept himself closely guarded and to see him open up was absolutely stunning. The tender moments had me swooning, my heart melting and a smile from ear to ear, but with any forbidden romance there are hurdles.

“It’s time to grow up, Peter Pan. This isn’t fucking Neverland.”

Erin Noelle delivers a beautiful read that was totally captivating, the slow burn only adding fuel to an already raging inferno of want. I was desperate for these two to beat the odds. Their relationship was more than just physical, their similarities, their quirks, their senses of humour only added to their mental and emotional connection and that is what really bled through the pages. While the age gap should have been their biggest hurdle it paled into insignificance. It was great to catch up with Mason and Scarlett too and only added to this being a really satisfying read. I am hoping that Everett’s twin gets a book two, she is the total opposite to her brother and I bet this whirlwind would be an eye-opening read!


“I-I-I’m Ms. Sloan,” I managed to squeak out, “the new Art History teacher here.”

Staggering backward a few steps, she gaped at me in disbelief as all of the color drained from her face. “Say what?”

I nodded and pointed over to my car, where the faculty parking tag hung from my rearview mirror. “Yeah, that’s my car. I was leaving for the day and realized I’d forgotten my phone upstairs,” I explained, lifting my cell up in the air.

“Oh, fuck me,” she mumbled, squeezing her eyes shut and covering her face with her hands. “I’m so sorry. I thought you were someone else, and I tend to get a little overprotective when it comes to my brother, and—”

“It’s okay,” I assured her, reaching out to touch her arm so she’d stop and look at me. “Seriously, no harm, no foul. We can just pretend this never happened.”

Tilting her head slightly to the side, she studied me for a couple of seconds, and then a brilliant smile lit up her pretty face. “But you are her, aren’t you?” she whispered.

My lack of an answer confirmed what she already knew and she started bouncing up and down on her toes, clapping excitedly. “Oh wow! This is so exciting, a forbidden romance. I knew when Everett finally did it, he’d do it big.”

I wasn’t sure how to take the last part of her comment, but I chose to ignore it for the time being and focus on the first part. “No, there is nothing exciting, no romance,” I stressed. “I’m his teacher and he is my student. That’s it. Nothing more.”

“Okay, Ms. Sloan. I hear ya… nothing more.” She smirked sassily, as if she didn’t believe anything I was saying. “And my lips are sealed. Promise.”

She pretended like she zipped up her mouth and threw away the key then sauntered off toward a flashy silver Mercedes, waving bye to me before she lowered herself onto the driver’s seat. I peered down at the phone in my hands. 4:08. Shit. Now, I was late.

By the time I found the restaurant and joined my coworkers at the bar, I wasn’t sure if the restaurant had enough tequila for the amount I needed to drink.
