Oh, there was so much that should have been edited from this story. I don't even care to name the issues I've had read it. Truthfully, Jett and Goldie talked so much, I'm surprised this wasn't a ghost story. Those two men could not still be alive after expelling so much hot air out their lungs. And it's not the characters fault because they were written this way. I love rock stars in fiction but if they talked this much in other books, I'd give up on the genre on a whole. The concept of the story was great. The guys just talked too much to appreciate the underlying theme I think the authors were trying to portray. (I agree with another reviewer's complaint of Jett talking so much during sex that you forgot that he and Goldie were having sex.)

Please curious readers take this review as a CAUTION BEWARE. ( )

With such a pretty cover, and a plot featuring rock stars, I couldn't resist buying this book. And so very glad I did! The main characters and their romance were simply delicious.

This one will be in my favorites list to re-read in the future. :) ( )
