    1. I would not have bought this book if I knew there were at least two mmf menage scenes (with emphasis on the female character). It's obvious the publisher/author left this information off the blurb deliberately. This information should be included in the blurbs so that readers have a CHOICE.

    2. ~ ~ ~3.5 Rockin' Stars!!!Thrust into the 80’s London alt-rock scene, there’s no doubt that sex, drugs and all the rest are alive and kicking. The gritty club scene is one thing, but then you’re subjected to the grotty communal living conditions that somehow make you yearn for that kind camaraderie. The descriptive drug use and sex are in-your-face and very authentic. There’s also a m-m-f ménage scene just to add some more spice. Admittedly it did take me a while but, hot boy lovin’ mi [...]

    3. I've read another Tushmore book, The Bartender's Tale, and I'm circling back to the question of what the hell am I doing NOT reading more?Crucifox is a tale of several mend a woman thrown up on stage by chance and talent only to find themselves in the chaos of being a rock band with a growing following. This book chronicles not just the band's climb.d some stumbles but also Brandon and Sky's fumble towards their own brand of HEA. Great book. I highly recommend it. And apparently I'm going to be [...]

    4. Where do I even begin with this book? Personally, I don't think five stars is enough. I was expecting good things, because I'd already read the little prequels and snippets and such, but this book really gripped me and I couldn't put it down, finished it in about two days, which isn't something I've managed to do for a while.I'm not usually one for first person narratives, but I loved this one—seeing through Sky's eyes made everything real, made it hurt, and made it so satisfying. Another thin [...]

    5. 4.5 Stars ~ This was my first Melanie Tushmore book and she came very highly recommended by a friend I admire and respect. When I opened the book and it began in 1986, well that just brought a whole ton of memories swarming in, since I was seventeen that year and the big hair bands were it for my generation. I think I could practically smell the Aqua Net in the air. The atmosphere was familiar and comforting, in a way. 'The Green-Eyed Monster' is the story of a band, Crucifox, from their days of [...]

    6. Reviewed on Hearts On Fire3.5 Stars As a book about rock stars this was often fresh & fun. I liked Sky & Brandon together even if they’re a little frustrating. First, a bit of housekeeping. This book does contain a couple of on page mmf ménage scenes involving one or both of our main characters and one of which is several pages long. Prior to this we’d already had a scene with Brandon & Sky pulling girls or ‘birds’ into their rooms so I was thinking not again when this one t [...]

    7. Holy crap that book was sooooo frustrating! I’m absolutely having a love/hate thing going with these characters. The tension in this book is thick but in the best way. I didn’t want to put this book down for minute because every damn time I thought this is it, they are going to get their shit together and then BAM…. I wanted to scream at them! Apparently I love to be teased because this I loved – every minute of it.The story follows a group of friends in a band and takes us through the y [...]

    8. I must say that after reading a few reviews on this book I was going to give this book a pass. I hate books that include m/f scenes w/o proper warning…but THEN I realized that this was the same author that wrote The Price of Falling , a book that I absolutely loved so I HAD to read it.First, I’ll say about the threesome that is described in details in the book. Mainly, because it is the very FIRST time that I see a purpose to an m/f scene in an m/m book. One of the things that I really like [...]

    9. In short: I love that this book took an in-your-face approach to rockers. Very sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll. I like that the romance aspect was slow instead of the insta!love (or at least insta!lust) that I see so often in the M/M genre. But this book isn't just M/M. This is a bisexual story. Yes! Finally! Brandon is openly bisexual and Sky thinks he's completely straight until interacting with Brandon. And before everyone shouts 'Gay-for-You' at me, I want them to understand that just because [...]

    10. 4 starsThose mmf scenes were certainly not something I expected to find in my M/M book, but for me it wasn't that "traumatic" an experience, and I think it was necessary to happen in order to.other things to happen. Yeah.I love to read about bands, rockstars and music and The Green-Eyed Monster gave me one awesome rock band. I loved both Sky and Brandon (lol, he and his foxes) and the other band mates were great, too. The only thing that frustrated me was that it took them forever to get togethe [...]

    12. Ok, so I would have rated the first half this book 2 stars and the second half 4 stars, I figure I’m being fair putting it in the middle at 3. There were some things I enjoyed about this book and a few others I really, really didn’t. Altogether though it’s got me curious if there is a sequel. I don’t know if I would run out the door to buy it now, but if it came along, I wouldn’t turn it away.In the glam rock world of the late 80’s, early 90’s, Sky lives for music. It consumes his [...]

    13. **Review for Rarely Dusty Books**The Green-Eyed Monster is a surprising story that left me with mixed feelings. It’s not a glamorous rock-star story. In fact the drugs, the lewd comments, the parties, the butt flashing and teasing are in abundance in this story featuring two incredibly stubborn men. Come to think of it, they may just redefine the word ‘stubborn’. Added to all of this is the theme of jealousy, spanning several years. It is also a very refreshing story. It’s nice to see me [...]

    14. Where do I even start with this book? It left me with a feeling of deep satisfaction. I’ll try to write about all the different aspects of this book.The characters: so well-drawn! I’m a sucker for flawed heroes and I really got what I wanted with this book. It is not a set of tropes, rushing to a HEA. It’s a story of a band rising to fame and the romance side is slow, with ups, downs and misunderstandings. It’s first person POV which I usually dislike, yet here I had no problem to ease i [...]

    16. I loved this book. I generally love rock star books but this one was by far one of the best.I loved that the story wasn't rushed. There were no skipped parts and I absolutely loved the details that helped me understand the characters and story that much better. I liked that I got to read about every struggle they had while trying to make it big. There were no points at all throughtout this book where I told myself no way this is real. In fact I was surprized how real everything seemed and I coul [...]

    17. Very enjoyable book, following Sky and his band through several years, and Sky's slowly developing relationship with Brandon. It's got such great detail about the life of being in a band. Who knew a mere sound check was so fraught with inter-band politics? The pressure of constantly being together and what that does to relationships is important in the book. No wonder bands break up. The surprise is how any of them stay together! The characters not perfect people by any means, but interesting an [...]

    18. 3.5 stars. This has been an interesting read for me because of its down-to-earth portrayal of rock bands struggling to succeed and what might happen when they finally achieve their dreams. Sky and Brandon's relationship, with all those misunderstandings, was incredibly frustrating and did not give me the impression of a credible romance. That said, I am not sure if their story continues or other band members are next.

    20. England, the land of Bowie, and then his bastard offspring The Mission, Bauhaus and all the rest? What's not to love! And I loved almost all of this book, so I struggle a bit with the 4 or 5 star. Make it 4.5.I could smell the Aqua Net, I was so there. I felt so in tune with Sky in every way. I loved the clubs and the band's ratty living arrangements. Because I am an Anglophile and a musician, I ate it up. The humor hit my funny bone just right. I think when I stopped feeling completely in tune [...]

    21. This book fed all my needs. Melanie Tushmore is just one of those authors who never disappoints me. "The Green-Eyed Monster" has it all: great characters who are likable despite being flawed, a plot that doesn't only focus on the romance, humor, drama, jealousy (just as the title promised), lots of insider-knowledge about bands and the music industry, passionate love (and sex). In short: this book rocks and it rocks hard. The story isn't just a romance between band members. It is the story of a [...]

    22. The premise of this book was good enough and I enjoyed the band's journey into fame. But that's about all I likedThe whole story was told from Sky's pov and he came across as whiny insecure twat (I really like that word, so perfect.) with severe anger management issues. Actually he had issues with emotions and had no knowledge or skills to handle them. Aaand on top of that he had over active imagination and tendencies to be paranoid which didn't help the situation at all.Then there is Brandon wh [...]

    23. Loved the characters but I was totally annoyed with Sky. I was tempted to put this story on my Handicapped shelf because I thought Sky was just so blind to how Brandon felt about him right from the start. Then the blindness began to include how he, himself, felt about Brandon.I enjoyed the story, the characters were all interesting, and learning about how they struggle for recognition in such a large pool opening my eyes. I was surprised about the "camp out" at the music festival in Germany. Tho [...]

    24. This book had a real plot and nicely evoked the alternative rock scene in London in the late 80s and early 90s. It tells of the relationship between Sky who starts the band and Brandon, the guy he wants as a singer. The gritty, smutty details of life on the road and the difficulties of having a relationship in that atmosphere come through. The characters were really frustrating though because they NEVER talked to each other and months would go by without them being together. But really they tort [...]

    25. I just didn't connect with this story or with the characters. In fact, even at the end, I was WTF is going on? Just didn't seem like the two were really getting together. And with Sky's jealousy over anyone/everyone Brandon looks at, I don't see how it's going to ever stop. Really didn't even seem like a happy ending to me. Truly, I only finished it because it was a bingo book, BOM and was highly rated by some of my friends. I guess that we each have different tastes and opinions and that's what [...]

    26. I just didn't get the same feel for this book as I did from The Vampire. Not to say the book wasn't good. It was. I just I guess there was just too much jumping around for me. I am hoping the next book will appeal to me more. I still am going to read the series since I still enjoyed the book just not as much as I had hoped.

    27. I felt like I was reading someone's diary "…and then this happened and then this person said that…." This went on for half the book. I also thought the story was way too long and lacked focus. The ending was a bit lame - the whole stalker storyline was kind of odd didn't fit and felt like it had been tagged on at the end as an afterthought.

    28. I really liked this story--raw and gritty with lots of energy. I loved the characters--they felt very real and true to me. (Even though I wanted to knock their heads together!) I will definitely be reading more of Melanie's stuff!
