Synopsis
Garnet Delaware is one of LA’s best DJs, although her fight to the top has been far from easy. Life was tough after leaving home at sixteen, but she’s shed sweat and tears to earn the respect of the music industry and is now content in the arms of her girlfriend, Lena. When Garnet is offered the opportunity of a lifetime —performing at music festivals around the country in her breakout tour— she can’t wait to take the next step. However, she’s not looking forward to leaving Lena behind, even if the separation is only temporary.

NFL bad boy Wesley Black has disgraced himself, throwing away his football career. Now he is determined to get back on track to prove he has his life under control. And despite the fact that his dreams have been flushed down the toilet, he wants to redeem himself by helping Garnet achieve hers. But his desire for Garnet grows, so when the tour that he’s managing ends, Wes isn’t ready to let her slip away so easily.

Plans are not always set in stone. An unexpected turn almost ruins Garnet’s career, and the person she most despises wants to help her find her way back. Turns out, the truth has a way of unlocking secrets that can either make Garnet stronger or destroy everything she’s worked so hard to build.

Spin Me Round - book 1
5 Stars
The story of Garnet, Lena…and Wes.
This story is told in the first person perspective from Garnet.
When the story begins, we find out Garnet is in love with/lives with Lena, her girlfriend of 3 years. Garnet is a DJ (although it said she sings - so that confused me a bit, haven't know DJs to sing).  She has regular gigs at a club, and has an upcoming festival she will play at.
Wes is a down and out football player - ousted from the sport for doing drugs.  He seems like a stalker when he comes in, and he's determined to have Garnet in his bed, not caring that she defines herself as a lesbian.
When Garnet goes on the road trip to play the music festival, Wes is there.  Turns out he now works for a guy that has clubs all over the place and also sponsors tours of major names.  They offer her a contract to work for them, a huge opportunity.
Sex scenes between Garnet and Lena are descriptive.
The stuff that Wes does makes him feel like a huge sleeze-ball! I'm just not sure I will ever like him, especially after what happens at the end of this book. 
The story definitely leaves you wanting to rush to book 2 to continue the story!

4.5 Stars
The story of Garnet, Lena…and Wes.
The second part of the story is told in alternating first person perspective of Garnet and Wes.
This story begins where book 1 left off. Something has happened between Garnet and Wes, and she is having a hard time facing him.  On a trip back to see Lena, she continues to lie (or rather - omit the truth), and when she must return to the festival tour - she has the same problem of having to face Wes.
This part of the story is less action/story telling, and has a few extraneous people interruptions instead of the main characters.  I did enjoy having a small portion of perspective from Wes, but obviously we are missing a lot of the story - including back story.  I feel as though I will (hopefully) learn it all and enjoy the ending - which is part 3.
I feel like a part that was skimmed over in part 2 will come to a very serious head in part 3.  Can't wait!

4 Stars
The story of Garnet, Lena…and Wes.
This third story is told in alternating first person perspectives of Garnet and Wes.
Garnet and Wes are now working closely during the music festival tour.  Gar is slowly remembering her night with Wes, but he is giving an ultimatum that it needs to be him or Lena.  She knows who she is choosing, but she is still drawn to the other person as well.
I must admit this one had me confused. I felt as though up was now down, and right was now left. I admit to being relieved when I found out there would at least be a book 4 - because I thought the story was going to hurry and end, and it would have totally "jumped the shark".
Wes now acts differently than he did in books 1-2, Garnet seems to be the same, and Lena…new information comes to light on her and…
Don't want to give the plot away.  I do hope the author finally addresses the "16 year old familiarity" plot point at some time before it ends.  I am so curious about it!
