    I don't know what it was about Mike and Clarke's story that spoke to me on such an emotional and deeper level than the other stories, but I can tell you it did. I can tell you it did, because I cried. I cried for Mike, I cried for Paul and I cried for Clarke. This book was the same kind of feel as the other books, but yet different in a way. Deepest Blues was so much more about Mike and battling addiction, recovering, loss, guilt and cause/effect. Is it weird to be proud of a character? I found myself while reading this book being proud of Mike and how far he has come. And also kind of proud of the rest of the band for the support system they gave him, never walking away, never leaving him behind. I also found myself proud of MIke, yet disappointed at the same time when it came to Ilsa. Hence the crying. That moment in time, that one time, Sway witnessed it, I read it, I cried. My stomach dropped. It's SO real. It's so something that is a situation anyone can find themselves in, and most of us probably have. It's one of those times in life where you are reading a book, the scene pulls the feels from you and jogs a memory. You relate to the character. You remember those feelings. That's what Heidi did to me throughout this book. It's so much more than the band, and the music, and love. It is about growth and support, and recovery, and STRENGTH. You can't read this book and not see how strong Mike is for the path he chose, granted it took something horrible to get him on this path, but he's there. And he sticks to it. It takes a strong person to realize their faults or addictions, take the necessary steps to fix it, and stay on the up and up. But the same goes for Clarke. Two strong people, suffering a loss, battling internal issues, but taking the right steps to make themselves better before they can ever be better together. Such a beautiful thing. And the way Heidi delivers this story, you can't help but fall in love with Clarke, Mike and Sway too. Deepest Blues stands out to me in this series to me because it's so different. It's on a different level than the other books in the series. It's the same amazing writing style that Heidi always deliver, and that I am always addicted to, that's no surprise. But this one is just so much deeper. I think you did amazing with this. 5 stars Heidi, 5 stars, no doubt in my mind.

    Oh my. Sometimes, I am lucky enough to discover beautiful, breathtaking, butterfly inducing stories. Stories like that deserve big things. People who write books like that deserve big things. This is one of those stories. Mike is the prologue subject. And he's broken. Then he meets Clarke. And, as I was reading the story of characters I have already come to know, I was cheering for them. Then I had to send Heidi a message saying "Mike's currently on my idiot s**t list. It's not a long one. It's him." And that's the sign of a great story. That the characters and their relationship affected me that much.Now, I'm not going to lie to you; you may cry. This is, in parts, a coffee shop averse story (unless your face doesn't go red and blotchy when you cry, in which case, crack on!!). Mike's story touched my heart. And broke it a little. But I loved it. In summary, a stunning tale of love and discovery. Buy it. Please. I genuinely think it's the best one yet.I received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    I wish I could give this 100 stars!! Mike's story is hardly easy to swallow...knowing he's had such a dark past dealing with pain and addiction. Enter his new friend Clarke and plenty of sweet silences. I found Clarke so reassuring and remarkable as the companion to his story. It's hard not to appreciate what an amazing character she is, considering all she's been through it doesn't cloud her or make her bitter. Mike is probably my favorite character of the band now, but I'm guessing I'll feel that way each time I read another book of Heidi's. I don't know why but I appreciated the darkness of the book as it sensitively and appropriately dealt with addiction. Beautifully done and even better than I had dare hoped the book would be.

    1 billion stars! Probably a bit much but it was super cute. Clarke is funny and amazing. The spontaneity was great and adorable. Two thumbs up with the billion stars.

    reviewed by Aly on behalf ofThe Book Landers Finally! We get Mike’s story! I’ve been waiting for this forever! Okay, while maybe a few months? But still, it’s been a while.I loved the look at addiction we get through Mike’s perspective. I’ve never really thought extensively on addiction but when I have I’ve never seen it in that way. It was interesting and eye opening. I enjoyed this new outlook. It really opened my eyes. Like the previous books in the Double Blind Study, we get to view scenes that we’ve already seen in previous books. Now this does not mean they’re repetitive or boring. These scenes are told from another person’s perspective and adds another viewpoint to see this moment and how it affected the characters. I loved that! It gave an entirely new view of Shane and Greta’s first meeting as just one example. Then the struggles that both characters faced are huge. I really did not think that they would be able to bounce back and work through that. But again, I was proven wrong. Even though Clarke had good reason to hate Mike she honestly worked through her feelings and bounced back better than I thought she could. And Mike while struggling doesn’t go back to what he knows. It was wonderful to not necessarily see them struggle but to come through those struggles better for it. It gives hope that things can get so much better during difficult periods.I also have to admit that as usual I loved the other characters, although Lia was a particular favorite. I just enjoyed her no nonsense attitude and her ability to stand up for herself. It was great to see everyone get their happy endings and I’m looking forward to seeing Harrison get his. Whoever he ends up with is really lucky as he seems such a sweetheart.

    I could not wait to read this book. I completely fell in love with Mike from Book One. There was just something about him that drew me to him. He was the quiet one. He was the one always watching everything and everyone around him. He was always there when his band brothers needed him and giving his words of wisdom and support. Mike holds my heart. His story was heartbreaking and beautiful. I love the determination he had to win his battle and make himself whole. Mike and Clarke were just destined to be together. I love how Heidi writes and creates her characters. No weak females here. Clarke battles with her own issues. She has no family but she’s still strong, intelligent and fierce. All the characters are well developed and they grow on you. You will laugh, snort, cry and giggle. And be prepared to feel all the warm fuzzies because Mike is just that loveable.I love Heidi’s writing style. She always delivers a true love story. Her stories are always told with such passion and enough drama to keep you consumed from beginning to end. There touching, heartbreaking, relatable and always carry such a great positive message. Mike’s story gives you hope. That although life can sometimes be tough and there are obstacles that require great strength to overcome, however, if you are determined and believe in faith and hope, you can overcome just about anything. Although each book in this series can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading in order. You get to meet the characters from the beginning and get a feel for each one. Each story is just as wonderful and they just continue to get better and better.

    Once I started reading, I couldn't stop! I read it while I made dinner, loaded the dishwasher, and even when I brushed my teeth! I devoured it in one night.I knew half way into Learn to Fly that Mike's story would be amazing and deep, but I was unprepared for this level of awesomeness! Throughout the story I felt ridiculously happy, angry, terribly sad, and sometimes all of them at the same time. At one point I gasped and yelled "nooo" out loud like a crazy person and cried a little. I read the epilogue 3 times in a row because Mike and Clarke's happy ending is so beautiful! Go buy tissues and chocolate and read this book!

    This book was given to me in exchange for a honest review by United Indie Book BlogThis is book 4 in the series. It is not the greatest book but it gets better. The beginning is basically a retelling of book 3 but from a slightly different perspective. Togethers REALLY Goshen the story focuses on Mike and Clarke. It's full of emotions that will tear you up and let you heal. Still a must own series!

    mike and Clarke, I really loved and enjoyed this story.takes place in early in book 3 Tectonic in a different point of view, you see more on Clarke's p.o.v. more into a relationship that starts to form between her and Mike . mike has a pass he still struggles with and finds that its getting easier to handle. but do to a certain person coming back from the past, with secrets coming to light. I enjoyed the laughs the drama and the sad parts too. in the end it all comes together.

    Could I love Mike and Clarke anymore? No probably not, this story was great. It was a little hard for me to get into in the beginning but once you learn more of their pasts I really became invested in their characters. This book did not disappoint and the series keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to read Harrison's story next!

    Loved it!This is my favorite one of the series.. I love reading about about Clarke and Mike. This book was truly a great read. It takes you on an emotional roller coaster. How they fell for each other and knowing that Clarke's brother Paul approved of them. This book has a place in my heart.

    I really love this series. I also think Heidi is one of the best at overlapping stories. It rarely, if ever pisses me off in her books. :)

    After having read the entire DBS series, I was so ready to watch Mike fall in love!

    This was an interesting read, because there was a lot of overlap with book #3. Seeing the same events from different perspectives was neat. :) Too much drama and tragic backstories are usually not my thing, so I was a bit skeptical how all the heavy stuff in Mike and Clarke's history would be dealt with. Yes, it was at times painful and heart-wrenching, but there were also enough funny moments and the "awwww"-factor was there, so I didn't mind - and it made for a beautiful story. NB: Extra kudos for Mike and Clarke being aware of their respective issues, and not only accepting but actively seeking professional help... somehow that made them even more human and more "real" for me. Thank you for that.
