Publisher's Summary

Leila Marino's biggest dream is to become a rock star. A lucky opportunity has her auditioning with an up and coming rock band named Devil's Lair. The band hires Leila as their back-up singer, signing her up for months in the studio and touring on the road with the sexy bunch.
Jack is the quintessential rock star: gorgeous... sexy... a walking orgasm. Jack Lair is the lead singer of Devil's Lair and his dreams are becoming reality as his band climbs the ladder of success. He's living the perfect life, and enjoying every minute of it. With a steady stream of sexual conquests that satisfies his raging libido, he thinks he has all he needs in life... until Leila enters it.
Jack is not prepared for the sudden pull he feels towards Leila, and struggles daily to deny that his attraction is anything more. Leila finds falling for her new boss is constant torment. Both convince themselves friendship is their only option.
An intimate moment causes their willpower to collapse, and their erotic love affair begins. Finding love was a bonus that neither Jack nor Leila anticipated. As they begin their tour together professionally and personally, life couldn't be any better for the couple - until a mistake from Jack's past threatens their new relationship, and their perfect future together.

Not sure about this book!

This was a slow story. I truly not sure if I will listen to the next book. Don't think this was worth a credit.

This is not quite your ordinary Rock Band romance where each band member slowly finds the love of his life..... no this is going to be a much longer story focusing on one couple that'll stretch into many books so there's a CLIFFHANGER to this first listen of Jack and Leila's love story. None of them have made it big yet so there's no egos and when the talented and very nervous Leila auditions for Back-up for the band Devil's Lair there's instant attraction and off the charts chemistry between sex on a stick lead singer Jack and Leila. But this has a very sweet and slow build-up to the romance as they both try to resist the pull.

In this slice of their story you get the foundation stone to everything.... their backgrounds, all the many characters involved, Jack's initial 'no strings' sex policy and encounters, Leila's current band, their families and, coupled with that, there's the ever growing attraction they feel for each other. As the Chapters flew by and they hadn't yet left to go on tour I started to have my doubts that this was going to be a complete story and then there was a couple of OMG revelations at the end leading to tears, fears, heartbreak and sure enough..... a to be continued storyline.

But what an awesome story it was, it was so well described that I could picture each scene, the character's and personalities were also so well described that you felt you knew and liked everyone, the slow building romance was well paced and when they couldn't keep their hands off each other any longer then there was plenty of 'lovin' too. Dual POV's and no problems with the narrator.

Worth a credit? It was a great romance where you really feel the love between two loveable down to earth people, sweet tender feelings and loving words and a good base to build the ongoing story. IMO, very very creditworthy but now I'm left on the hook of Devil's Lair and desperate for the continuation because I just feel it's going to be an epic ride.
