This book was SO WORTH THE FREAKING WAIT
Time to meet our MC’s….
Jackson Shaw- Guitarist for The Forgotten:
Dealing with the aftermath of Laney cheating on him, Jackson is beaten down and broken isn’t a pretty sight. So what’s a rock star to do? Well party and have sex with a ton of beautiful women. He becomes careless, especially when he meets bitch-model Kristyna. who kindly introduced him to cocaine, which quickly becomes a problem for him. Let’s just say his drug use, drinking and sexual escapades are making nice headlines for the tabloids, which in turn isn’t helping with the bands image. His life is spinning out of control all because of his broken heart. He vows to NEVER give his heart away again.
A reality TV show called Hidden Talent has asked Jackson to be a judge on the show. Taking the opportunity to escape the memories he has of Laney in Seattle and the crazy coke head Kristyna. He decides LA is the perfect escape.
Liza- single mother, amazing dancer/singer
Liza hasn’t had an easy life. Her parents kicked her out at 15 when she ended up pregnant. She stayed with her aunt and her cousin Sid. Liza is a burlesque dancer and she makes an okay living making. It pays for her son and her brother to have all they need and a roof over their heads. Wanting to help make his mom’s dream come true Lucas enters her into the Hidden Talent contest. Like the song says, isn’t it ironic that Jackson ends up at the club she works at and falls head over heels for Liza and she is also a contestant for the show he is judging?
We all know life is a bitch and fate loves to throw people together at the most inconvenient times.
Liza is super independent, smart, beautiful, kind and amazingly talented. She is also very nurturing and puts her son and her brother needs before he own.
I adored Jackson in Falling Stars so to get his story was awesome and painful but man, every step was worth it.
The struggles, the betrayal, the anger, the loss, the happiness and facing your demons.
Their chemistry is immediately off the charts. Jackson is determined to be with Liza, but like all relationships there are plenty bumps in the road to happiness. When you throw in a crazy ex, the paparazzi, rehab, and cousin Sid with an uncanny ability to hack things, you’ve got yourself and amazing, funny and heartbreakingly beautiful story.
Sadie did not disappoint. I couldn’t put this book down! I am addicted. I look forward to seeing the gang again in her upcoming novella Stellar Collision.
My god, was this worth the wait! I just knew Jackson was going to steal my heart and he didn't disappoint! I can't wait to read more about one of my favorite rocker crews! Such a great read.
