I've been clean for years. But now my addiction has a face. Her face...
At eighteen, I stood at the precipice of stardom. I had the record deal. And the tour to back it up. But I succumbed to the pressure of that life. The dark side. Now, I skate on the fringe. My brother is the genius guitarist for the band Caged, and I’m the one who helped make that happen. I’m happy to run my bars and my land development company.
Sure I am.
And then I meet her—Taryn Ayers—the music manager behind the three biggest bands in the country. She doesn’t know I’m Cam’s older brother. Or that I’ve got a secret that makes her world and mine fundamentally incompatible. Problem is, I want to know Taryn. I crave her as much as any drug. But can I risk letting her know me?

One of the things I love most about reading and reviewing books are the never before read authors you discover. This is my first story by Jayne Frost and I really enjoyed it. I haven’t had the privilege of reading the other books in the Sixth Street Bands series as of yet, but rest assured I will correct that in the very near future. When you discover new authors it can sometimes be hit or miss, but not in this case. Jayne Frost can seriously write, with her carefully crafted plot lines and well developed characters, she sucked me in.
Our hero Chase, is dark, broken and real. He’s been to hell and back, but lives to tell his story, which is no easy feat by any means. He’s fragile, but then I felt him to be so strong on the other hand and when you’ve moved to the dark side it is so hard to come out the other end and finally find the light at the end of a dark tunnel.
“Pain had been my constant companion for five years. An unwelcome guest. And I didn’t feel it as acutely when I was with Chase. But I couldn’t tell him that. That probably crossed some kind of friendship boundary.”
Taryn is strong, so strong. I can’t even imagine going through what this woman has gone through and come out the other side unscathed; the strength it must take to get through your worst nightmare and have the ability to pick yourself up and carry on is simply unfathomable to me.
Lost for You is, after all said and done, a rockstar romance and we all know rockstars live by the creed of sex, drugs and rock n roll. The struggles with drugs and addiction felt so real, I read it feeling waves of depression, but then enlightenment as well, a real roller coaster. Addiction is a really dark cloud that hangs over the head of many a rockstar, especially so during the prime of their careers. This story was raw, gritty, real and I felt every emotion.
“I brushed a lock of hair out of his eyes, and when he smiled, I knew – he was going to kill me. Break my heart and leave it in a million pieces when this all faded away.”
It was not all doom and gloom, though I do love my emotional reads, so sometimes I can focus on that aspect. However, there were also hot, sexy and steamy scenes to help balance out the emotion, which had me hoping this couple would rise above the hurt and pain of their past and find their HEA.
I really enjoyed this story and it kept me invested from the start as I absorbed all the pain, heartbreak, emotion and love. If you adore your angsty, friends-to-lovers rockstar romances then I suggest you check this one out, you won’t be sorry.
