Blair is looking for an escape.West is looking for a connection.
One down and out woman. One isolated rock star. Life at the top is lonely, but so is life at the bottom.
Blair is just looking for someone to take the edge off her crappy life. Dull the pain, breathe a little life into her neglected body. A chance meeting at a bar leads to a night of passion. No names, no personal details. Just sex.
Well, it wasn't personal until she sees the guy standing on a stage ten meters in front of her. How the hell didn't she realize that the guy who blew her mind is the guitarist out of that dirty rock'n'roll band, Affliction? And why is he chasing her down the street? And how does he know her name?
Sometimes you find the things you didn't even know you were looking for in the most unexpected places.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review
This is a really quick read. It's definitely an intro-into-the-series type of book, so this review is going to be pretty quick.
Living in Australia is Blair, who works at a cruddy tattoo parlor, lives in a dinky little apartment, and someone who feels like a worthless cause. We aren't sure what her motives are, but we know she doesn't really respect herself all that much. Especially when she decides to have a one night stand, which won't be her first, with some guy from a bar. She knows the game. Don't tell each other your name. Don't do loving endearments. And don't linger the next morning. Easier said than done when Blair leaves her Driver License on the floor of the guys hotel room... because this guy wants more out of Blair. And it just so happens he's Jake West or West for short... You know, that guy in that uber popular band!
Overall, I think this was a great beginning to the series. I'm giving this book 3.5 STARS out of 5 STARS because it's interesting but I wish it had just been a full novel. Add 150 more pages and it would have been perfect. It's a tease for what's to come, but it's really just giving us background info on these characters.

About the AuthorAmity Cross isn't my real name. That's no secret.
I didn't want my Mum and my workplace to find out I wrote about doodles and tongue-in-cheek sexual innuendo.
I live in a leafy suburb of Melbourne writing about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don't take s**t lying down.
Insert more pretentious c**p here.
