This is the perfect book to take on holiday with you! It’s not a long read but it’s certainly got enough ups and downs to keep you stuck to the pages and well entertained. The plot is well thought out and surprises, angst and passion are plentiful.
What horrified me was how such a young lass can come out unscathed after all she’s been through. A hard nut Micah definitely is! I found this extremely worrying but when you carry on reading the story, you will understand why she has so many trust issues, has problems making friends and has so much experience. No, this isn’t the gal that’s played with Barbie dolls and grew up in a loving surrounding. Quite the opposite. Since the age of fourteen, her life has been one huge con! However, her voice is what is going to take her places. The only thing she has to do is convince the musicians who are auditioning singers for their band that she’s the one they’re looking for.
Saxon is quite a bit older than her and in ignorant bliss of the truth. Just as well because anyone in their right mind wouldn’t even think about having any kind of relationship with a minor. Yes! Sax has morals! When he sees her singing in the band’s first private gig which he happens to be managing and is going to be the make or break for her, the first thing he feels for this sexy little thing is intrigue. He still has no idea where she’s come from but there is no doubt that curiosity will kill the cat! He’s made enough mistakes in his life to be wary of making more. But can this gorgeous guy who has had a rough deal in the past and doesn’t want mix business with pleasure stay away?
This is a really great story about two people in the music world that have had really complicated lives each in their own way. The storyline has a hell of a lot of flow and difficult to put down. Saying that; I would have loved to know more details about certain characters in this book. Sax’s cousin, Harry, who plays the bass guitar, is just horrendously attractive and even though he has his hang ups, I loved him! I would have loved to know more about Sax’s sister who will play an important part in Micah’s decisions, too. And since I’m a dog-lover and fell in love with Sax’s dog, I also wanted to know more about this adorable mut! This could be a fantastic series since the other musicians could possibly open up a brilliant follow up to this incredible read. Whether or not the author has this in mind remains to be seen!
This highly recommended read has a few of details that have swayed my decision as to whether or not I should have given this really hot and steamy read with exceptional grammar and explicit vocabulary which I might add, made me put the air-conditioning on, have five stars! You, Ms Johnson, are an exceptional storyteller. Bravo!!!! More please!
