this book was way too long. book one is much better with more compelling characters. also, its hard to believing a glory hole beginning will lead to a lifetime romance
I really enjoyed Fret and was excited to get Jinx’s story.
This was such a surprising book for me – I’m not sure what I was expecting – but it wasn’t this. There was more depth and emotion in this than I expected from Jinx. He’s such a slut and he even starts the story out with a case of crabs! When he sees how Gareth and Alex are doing as an out and proud couple he begins to long for something with more depth in his own relationships.
At one point – in an almost flashback moment – Jinx meets Jayden at a music store (before Jayden is “discovered”) and Jayden’s fanboying on him sticks with him long past the event. When he VERY COINICIDENTALLY meets Jayden again at a gay bar he instantly remembers him and the two share some hot and heavy moments together.
Jayden knows Jinx’s reputation and protects his heart by leaving without an explanation but when the two bands are thrown together professionally, their mutual infatuation becomes clear.
But things won’t be easy for them – Jayden is leery of being someone’s “secret”, Jinx isn’t sure what he wants, and then there’s the fact that Jinx hates boy bands…
The book involves way more emotion than I was expecting. It has the hot times I was expecting but also some really touching times between Jayden and Jinx.
I actually liked Jinx more than Jayden by the end of the story. I think he really grew throughout the book.
If you’re a fan of the author or this series I highly recommend it and to those who are unfamiliar with either – have you been hiding under a rock?!? Sandrine is a very prolific writer who has a way with alpha males and their sassy partners. I love the “love” in Sandrine’s stories – you know when you get one of her books that there will always be plenty of feels to go with the hot times and usually some humor and possibly some danger. The rock series is great because the focus is on music and so fans of rocker love stories will enjoy this for that reason. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series in order.
Klaus does a really great job giving the individual band members a unique voice this time around. His British accent is pretty good and I loved the time we get with Jayden’s band. I don’t love his narration when it doesn’t involve dialog… it’s a little too flat for my taste – but he does a nice job with dialog and the emotions in the story.
Overall 4.5 of 5 stars
