Faded Review | Faded by Julie Johnsonby Julie Johnson
Series: Faded #1

on April 4, 2018
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Format: ARC
Source: Author

I was never supposed to be famous.
I was a lyricist, not a singer.
Certainly not a star.
Too bad none of that seemed to matter to a rock-god like Ryder Woods.
He didn’t just want my words — he wanted everything.
And he took it.
My songs. My voice. My goddamned soul.
Between those haunting bedroom eyes and that heart-stopping grin, I never stood a chance. I was pulled into his orbit like a rogue meteor passing a sun.
The problem is, if you get too close to a star…
You’re bound to get burned. 🎶

FADED is the first installment of a sexy, emotional duet about a jaded rock star and a starry-eyed songwriter. UNFADED, the second installment, will be released on May 2, 2018. Pre-order it now! Please note: due to sex, drugs, and rock & roll, this duet is recommended for readers ages 16 and up.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Novel Thoughts

I just finished Faded and my heart is in pain. Physical pain. I can feel my heart broken and what kills me the most is I know it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

You see, I’ve met Ryder before, our hero from Faded, is also in The Girl duet by Julie Johnson. Ryder had all kinds of problems in those books, so I had an idea going in what was going to be the problem, but you see. The ending of Faded is was well and truly broke me. There is so much that could be explained away, but I get it. I understand Felicity’s reasons, and why she did what she needed to do. It makes sense, I know her and her motivations.


That doesn’t mean I like it. I am now a tortured soul sitting here gasping for breath and I won’t get another full deep breath again until I get Unfaded in my hands and I know how everything happens. I need my heart and soul mended so desperately right now.

I am over heels in love with both Ryder and Felicity. They are destined. OTP. I’m not even joking. These to are meant to freaking be. It sucks because I know that every couple has problems, but I want theirs to be over and for them to work it out!!

Not only was Faded torture in an amazing way, the lyrics that Johnson spun were delightful and heartbreaking. The scenes she painted were so vivid that I was convinced that I have been to Nashville and LA.

I will be waiting with bated breath for the conclusion of Ryder and Felicity’s story in Unfaded.
