Tony Wilcox, the quiet keyboard player for Ivory Tower, has always believed he was straight. A sexual encounter with his best friend leaves Tony questioning his heart and the unwavering attraction he has for Jared. Living and working together is no longer enough for Tony... he wants more. He wants Jared as his.
Jared Baker, the bass player for the band, has a past that is getting in the way of him fully embracing what he wants... Tony. He's tried everything to create distance between them, but none of it eliminated the feelings he has developed for Tony.
Trying to suppress the anger and confusion from Jared withdrawing from his life, Tony does his best to get beyond the feelings he has for his friend. When Jared becomes deathly ill, it's Tony that he calls for help and Tony has to decide if he can heal Jared without giving away too much of his heart.
Can best friends find their way to true love and discover if they were meant for each other, or will the challenges of life force them to choose separate paths?

“I really want to kiss you, T. Please,” Jared whispered his plea. “I need to know if it's real.”
“If what is real?” Tony asked.
“This. Us. All of it,” Jared whispered. “I need to know if what I'm feeling is the real deal...if maybe you're feeling it, too.”
Tony struggled again and Jared put more of his weight on top of Tony, even sliding one of his legs between Tony's thighs. Jared brushed their mouths together again and licked at Tony's slightly parted lips. Jared felt the resistance leave Tony's body and took that as a positive sign. He slanted his head and went in for the kiss he'd longed for since their last night with Bree, and just as his eyelids closed in euphoria, Tony bit down hard into the plump flesh of Jared's bottom lip. Pain shot through Jared and he quickly pulled back.
“What the hell?” Jared protested and wiped at the tiny spot of blood on his lip.
“If you fucking start this, I'm not stopping,” Tony hissed. “So, if you're gonna run away again like a scared little girl, you might as well leave right now.”
OH MAN! I had been waiting for this book since Ann started teasing us all with the plot and the more she mentioned, the more I wanted to read it. So, let me just start by saying this. ANN LISTER ROCKS! Almost as much as her Rock Gods. (Just don't tell her I said that!) She knows I luv her and that just makes it so much more fun to read each installment into the Rock gods series. Tony and Jared's story is no different, it's a great read, fun, exciting, frustrating, heartbreaking, and perfectly steamy.
Here is where I will tell you, if you have not read the rest of the series, you don't really need to before picking this one up. It could stand alone, but the mention of the characters from the previous books is very relevant, so you might be a little lost as to who is who. Don't let that discourage you. Just tell yourself that you need to read the rest of the series first, or even after, and then you can come back to this one and read it again, cause... it's just that good.
The friends to lovers aspect of the whole story is something that many of us can relate to. We have all had that friend who intrigued us in a way that meant either taking the plunge and owning up to what we feel or deciding to just be friends and let it all go. Well, Tony and Jared... they take the plunge, and it is one hell of a ride. In fact I am betting you will do a fair amount of out loud sighing like I did, when you have those moments that frustrate you. With two friends who are caught up in their own emotions and have not yet revealed to one another how they feel, there are plenty of those moments! Add in some of the band dynamics that are always present in Ann Lister's Rock Gods series and it is a perfect mix and a perfect book. (I am never one to give away spoilers, but I will say this... we get a peek at the end of Dante's and Ashton's upcoming book. Not a "preview" but rather the escalation of what is to come, is part of Jared and Tony's book.)
Am I already waiting on the next book before I am done praising this release. Yep, I am. As always Ann Lister delivers a wild ride with Meant for Me, and as always, those Rock Gods... THEY ROCK! Don't miss out on Meant for Me, and don't miss out on the rest of the series. Once you pick up the books, you won't be wanting to put them down... unless you are reaching for the next one!
Ann Lister writes erotic love stories using beautifully drawn characters; flawed and emotionally damaged, and at the height of their careers, each in search of the one thing that still eludes them: love.
The Rock Gods series gave her Bestselling Author status on Amazon. Each book in this series brings her two favorite elements together: musicians and the love between two men. These stories focus on what it truly means to love; love unconditionally, love without restrictions or labels, love without fear or judgment – to just simply love.
