Can romance and rock ‘n’ roll dreams survive with a storm raging around them?
Alex Randall has always wanted to be a rock singer. When he answers an ad from a local band, his dream finally comes true. He loves the stage, and the group’s fans love him. Things couldn’t be better, except for the attraction he develops for the band’s guitarist, Lindsey. Alex is surprised and initially worried, since he only had one brief flirtation with a boy in his teens. But even though he and Lindsey become close and start seeing each other, Alex fears commitment, and Lindsey worries that Alex might only be experimenting.
When Lindsey’s ex contacts him following a health scare, fear and anger drives a wedge between Alex and Lindsey, which causes rifts within the band. Alex and Lindsey’s relationship is still new and fragile, and with Alex unwittingly blaming Lindsey for their problems, it becomes a true challenge for them to weather the storm.
This was a new author for me and I love it. This story was surprisingly insightful but then I love stories about rock stars. I loved the slow build in the beginning of the story. It gives you some history about the characters. This is something that may seem a little slow moving but something I feel is the cornerstone to a good book. I also love when it is a slow build to love. Not that I don’t read instant love stories, but I absolutely love a slow steamy build to love story also.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who love m/m romance because there definitely romance in this book.
