Being in the internationally successful boy-band Right Time had been everything I had ever wanted and more. Well, except for one thing, or should I say one person? But I had long ago acknowledged that I couldn’t have both the life and the person and I should be happy with what I had. That worked until he showed up in my life again. And then nothing made sense.
For years I had pretended I didn’t care. Ignoring my feelings had become second nature to me. That was until my niece begged me to take her to see her favorite boy-band, Right Time, for her birthday, and I came face to face with him. In all fairness, she had no idea the can of worms she’d be opening. And to tell the truth, neither did I.
This is a great afternoon read as a Novella. I don’t usually read a lot of the Rock Star stories but this was an enjoyable love story. This is the third book with these characters and while the story was good and is written as a stand alone and does have a HEA, I would suggest reading the other stories first as those stories are mentioned in this book.
I really liked Law and Byron’s story and you get a look back at where this story really starts before you are brought up to current events. It does move quickly and is rather playful. They do have some obstacles to overcome. Things don’t always go the way you want to and I got a little frustrated at both characters for not manning up and talking like should but it served the story well. Once they can admit to each other how they really feel you can do a little happy dance. The author did a good job of writing this story realistically which can sometimes be not the case with Rock Star stories but I enjoyed this one. The story wraps up nicely and overall when the story was over I was happy to see where they ended up.
“OMG. He knows your name, Uncle Byron?”
Byron flushed, glancing down at his niece before he flicked his gaze back to mine. “Ah … yeah, Emma, I do.”
The girl began to ramble while her friends stared on in awe. “How? Why? When did you become so cool?”
“Hey, I’ve always been cool.” I chuckled at Byron’s offended expression, grateful that he was momentarily distracted. The man’s gaze had always left him feeling open and exposed.
“Well, I mean sure, you are the cool Uncle Byron who bought my friends and me these really awesome tickets, but this…”
“But this is like a whole new hemisphere of awesomeness,” another one of the young girls finished, almost breathless in her shock.
I had honestly never felt so self-conscious before that moment. Not because of the girls.
As shallow as it sounded, I was used to the lust filled expressions on women’s faces of varying age groups. Byron was another story. I wondered what he must be thinking, of me, of the situation. Even after all these years the man still had it in him to make me second guess myself.
A nervous tension I felt only in his presence. It was ridiculous. I was ridiculous.
Jess Buffett was born and raised in New South Wales, Australia. She is a mum of two, married to her high school sweetheart.
Jess is a hopeless romantic who is a huge fan of M/M and M/F romance with a happy ending—anything with hunky men in all their glory, whether they be Shifters, Vampires, Cowboys, or the boy next door.
A caffeine addict who shamefully can’t make a decent cup of coffee to save her life, Jess believes in soul mates, happily ever afters, and in love at first sight, but that sometimes people need a second or a third for the brain to catch up.
