In a town as small as Tyson, CA, everybody knew the four brothers with the four different fathers– and their penchant for making good music when they weren’t getting into trouble. For Mackey Sanders, playing in Outbreak Monkey with his brothers and their friends—especially Grant Adams–made Tyson bearable. But Grant has plans for getting Mackey and the Sanders boys out of Tyson, even if that means staying behind.
Between the heartbreak of leaving Grant and the terrifying, glamorous life of rock stardom, Mackey is adrift and sinking fast. When he’s hit rock bottom, Trav Ford shows up, courtesy of their record company and a producer who wants to see what Mackey can do if he doesn’t flame out first. But cleaning up his act means coming clean about Grant, and that’s not easy to do or say. Mackey might make it with Trav’s help–but Trav’s not sure he’s going to survive falling in love with Mackey.
Mackey James Sanders comes with a whole lot of messy, painful baggage, and law-and-order Trav doesn’t do messy or painful. And just when Trav thinks they may have mastered every demon in Mackey’s past, the biggest, baddest demon of all comes knocking.
Mackey I just loved his character! To fall in love when he was young and be hurt and broken, then turn to drugs to make it through the pain. But to come out the other side so much better.. To still have the pain but to be able to work through it without running back to old habits.
Then there was Trav I got to say I loved his character too! To be there to pick up Mackey at his worse then to help him pull through. The way he was strong enough to stick by Mackay and there were points were he had to be stronger at the end of this book. To stay by his side through it all..
These two together were just awesome..
Then you meet all of Mackey family and Grant. I will be honest about not being a big fan of Grants at first after everything but by the end of this book I understood him so much more and lets just say I cried at the end of this book after everything that happened.
This book was beautiful but also painful.
I loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!
