Touring with four rockers is the thing of dreams…

At least that is what people tell me. To me those four rockers are my family. They have watched over me from the time I was five years old. Protecting me from my mother and her drunken, drug addict rages. When they made it big they still watched over me. And when my monster of a mother died they took over as my guardians.

In the six years since that happened I have watched over the four men that
mean everything to me. I take care of them just as they once took care of me. I handle all the dirty work behind the scenes of a rockers life. It isn’t always pretty. At times it came be damn near disgusting, especially when I have to get rid of their one night stands. Ugh!

Taking care of them doesn’t bother me though. I mean it’s not like I’m in love with one of them. That would be crazy. Falling for a rocker is NOT smart.

Okay, so I’m not smart. I love my guys, and one of them kind of holds my heart in his big old rocker hand. But I’m dealing. I’ve been able to keep it my little secret for years now.
I’m not, however, dealing with this bug that I seem to have caught. It scares the hell out of me. I hate doctors, but I’m suddenly more worried about finding out what is wrong with me than what the doctor might do to me.

When I get my test results back my life will never be the same again…

my thoughts

I am totally swooning over this book! I did not set high expectations with this because most of the time, I end up disappointed when I expect too much in a New Adult book. But this? This is one of those books that have the ability to make me grin from ear to ear and just simply make me fall in love.

I just fell in love with Nik Amrstrong! He’s one of those hot and sexy male leads you just want to add in your list of book boyfriends. Who would’ve known I would fall for a gorgeous lead singer and frontman of a rock band?

I also love the female character Ember a.k.a. Emmie Jameson. Nik and Emmie’s love story is too swoony I just cannot! I don’t know how to express the enjoyment I’ve experienced in this book but yes, it’s a guilty-pleasure book! A bit unrealistic, but who cares as long as I enjoyed it, right? 😉

The writing style of the author was also great and compelling. I just wish the story was long. This was just a short, novella-style story so it left me really wanting for more. The ending, however, was so sweet and touching.

  1. Great review! Definitely adding this to my tbr. Lately I’ve been devouring NA books but true gems in this category are pretty hard to come by. I’m glad you loved this book, I’m definitely going to give this a try. 🙂


    • Thank you, dear. I totally agree with you. Oftentimes I get frustrated with NA because some of them don’t meet my expectations, but I’m glad I was able to read this. It’s an NA book with depth in the story and not just sex scenes. LOL
