We were gifted with getting to know Landon & Piper in Rock King, but getting their own story was so much better.
I’m completely helpless when it comes to rock gods, celebrities, simply famous people in general. I fall in love with their stories. This book for me was Fire and Ice. I loved it and I wanted to throw it ?? it consumed me as well as shattered me at times.
This story is about second chances.
“Thought we were the stuff of fairy tales. We’d been all too real. A love story cut short. No happily ever after ending for us.”
Landon is offered his dream and a way to mend his mistakes in his past, all he has to do is walk away without a word, focus on his career and focus solely on his new band. Too me, it was too easy for him, but what do I know? he walked away from Piper, no goodbye, nothing. Flash forward 6 years and we are at present time.
Landon is at the height of his rock career. And he was also at the top of being the ultimate playboy. Doesn’t mean he doesn’t think about what he lost, about his past, about the mistakes he made, what he sacrificed. He’s one of the hottest rock drummers in the industry, and all he cares about is forgetting his past but he can’t. So what happens when he comes face to face with the one thing he gave up that he highly regrets every single day?
“Rockers weren’t rocks. We were tumbleweeds, blowing with the wind. Subject to the whims of the industry.”
Piper is working for a Management Company that manages the man that walked away from her 6 years ago without a word. Simply vanished. She’s been great at avoiding him, she carries around anger, sadness, hate, and yes she still carries around love for the man that simply wiped his hands of her. After just breaking up with her cheating boyfriend, what perfect timing to come face to face with the ex that vanished years ago and you’ve succeeded at avoiding until now.
What will happen, what will come of these two lost souls that loved each other hard at a time in their lives but lost it? Will the love override the anger, the hurt? Will the love be greater than unexpected surprises? Will love override drugs and alcohol? Will love be enough to leave the rocker playboy life in the past, for a life of love with a soulmate? And will the love allow forgiveness??
This story is engaging, I couldn’t wait to get more to Landon and Piper and each page gave a little more. Again, as with the last book, I had to get to the end of this one, so I locked myself in my room to avoid distractions, angsty as heck, slow burn for me. If you love Rockstars, if you love second chances, and if you love angst, pick this up, pick up BOTH books in this series. I can’t wait for the next!!!!! So Miss Tara Leigh, I will be patiently waiting for your next work of art❤
