As the bassist for the band Caged, the last three years have been one, long non-stop party. Sure, I’ve had some regrets. Everyone does. But getting trapped in a relationship isn’t one of them. I know good and well what happens when the attraction fades. I’ve seen it first hand. Love is a zero sum game, so why play? As long as I'm upfront about my feelings, no one gets hurt. Besides, I'm never in one place long enough to worry about tomorrow.
That is, until the band decided to take an extended hiatus in our hometown. That’s when I met Melody Sullivan. She’s the full-package. Whip smart and beautiful, with enough determination to take on anything life has in store. And the best part? Melody shares my philosophy on the fleeting nature of attraction. She doesn’t buy into the whole “happily ever after” crap anymore than I do. We’re perfect for each other. For now. And now is all I want.
With the expectations off the table, I can let my guard down and enjoy her company until the spark dies. And we both know it will. In a week, or a month. But until then, we’ll just keep having fun. The good kind, with lots of sex and no strings attached. And when it’s time to move on, we will. No drawn out goodbyes and no remorse. That’s the plan, at least.
➦This is a sweet and sexy rockstar romance and I was glad to be granted an audiobook by the author to get a glimpse of her writing style. If you enjoy “rockstar falls for a regular girl” trope and somewhat lighthearted reads then definitely pick this one up!
➦The hero is very likable and so is the heroine, for that matter. A couple of secondary characters were also rather memorable. I want to mention that I’ve read this book months ago and only now getting around to writing a review. I do remember the heroine really well but my mind is a bit hazy on the hero. So, while I might not have completely fallen in love with him, I really enjoyed the story as a whole. I wished it were a bit longer with more development on the hero’s part. Other than that, thumbs up.
