Synopsis: Mick Wheland, Ivory Tower's bad-boy guitarist, has recently realized two important things about himself. He prefers sex with men over women, and the idea of a committed relationship doesn't scare him as much as it once did. He's seen the positive effects of love from watching his band-mates find life partners, and now he's thinking he might be ready for the same himself. The problem is knowing where to look for Mr. Right, and living out of a suitcase while touring with a band is not exactly conducive to finding real love. Sonny (Rooster) Roostarelli leaves the seclusion of his Vancouver cabin, where he went to lick his wounds after a contentious divorce, and moves back to Los Angeles. He claims relocating to L.A. is for business purposes, but now that the dust has settled on his failed marriage, Rooster feels he might finally be ready to settle down – with a man. A chance encounter for Wheland and Rooster on a busy L.A. street rekindles an old friendship between the two professional musicians. Rooster needs a short-term place to stay and Wheland has plenty of extra space at his hillside estate and that lands Rooster in Wheland's guest room. What starts out as a music collaboration opportunity quickly turns personal when the chemistry they have becomes too strong to ignore and soon the music they're making spills from the studio and into the bedroom. The road is a grueling bitch musicians love to hate. Being on stage under the hot lights can sometimes be the only place they feel comfortable and alive. Can two high-profile rock stars make a life together in such an artificial world – on and off the stage... or will past mistakes and family secrets keep them from finding their forever?
Review: Let’s just start out by saying I was waiting for this book and the moment it hit my digital library, I was doing the happy dance! Knowing that there were expectations from how much I loved the previous three books, I went into this baby wide open, and was not disappointed at all. I found myself laughing, feeling the struggle as Wheland and Rooster tried to make a touring relationship work, and enjoying the interaction with Wheland and his fellow band members. What got me, was the desire that both Wheland and Rooster had to make their new relationship work to overcome their own insecurities of the ‘rock and roll touring lifestyle’ and Wheland’s having to ‘come out’ to his band mates. As I progressed through the book I found myself loving the fact that the story not just revolved around Rooster and Wheland, but the other members of the band and their relationship celebrations and struggles… and those moments that had me knowing that there was more of the story to come. Now, throw all of that in with a couple of hot musicians and not just the stage will be burning up, but the pages!
Five Stars **** and two devils horns! \m/ \m/
