    Enticing Start to a New Series!

    As a big fan of rockstar stories I couldn't start reading this book fast enough and was then left screaming when the end (for now) quickly followed. This is an engrossing tale that's fast-paced and oozes sexual tension from the moment Lola and Drezden meet. Surrounding them is an enticing and colorful cast of secondary characters amidst the vividly depicted sometimes gritty world of rock 'n roll.

    Into this gritty and male-dominated world comes Lola who has been traveling with the band as a member of her brother's road crew. When the opportunity arises to try out for a spot playing with her favorite band her brother wholeheartedly encourages her knowing she's immensely talented. Lola's chosen in a nail biting audition but her instant attraction to Drezden makes their band practices difficult and she must make her mind go to a dark place in her past to remain focused on the music instead of Drezden. This is our first inkling that Lola's had some bad things happen to her in the past but we never learn exactly what.....yet. Outwardly Lola's exuberant with an intense love and respect for music and she's like a breath of fresh air to this rather dark music group. She's drawn to Drezden but struggles throughout this story to not let things go further as we readers feel unrelenting foreboding surrounding her and sense these unknown issues are holding her back.

    Drezden is a super sexy, dominant man with a lot of stress weighing on him. He demands perfection from those around him and is enthralled by Lola's talent as well as Lola herself. He's not a very charming man but you sense there's more to him hiding below the surface. He shows flashes of compassion towards Lola as well as encouraging her to be the best he knows she can be in his own gruff way. He too has darkness surrounding him and it's keeping him from claiming Lola, though being around her is like placing a moth before the flame with scenes full of sexual tension. Not matter how gruff he appears I still found myself enthralled by him and can't wait to dig deeper into his past.

    This story is completely engrossing as we see the action unfold through both Lola and Drezden's thoughts. This dual point of view gave us a greater feel of their personalities and gives hints of their dark pasts and keeps us on the edge of our seats waiting to find out what made them who they are today. The secondary characters also leapt off the page and have me longing to learn more about them as well. Overall this story is a wonderful appetizer just hinting at the powerful and dark emotions yet to come. I look forward to these two shadowed souls acting on their feelings as the sexual tension escalates in this atmospheric and well-written novella. If you're looking for an exciting new writing talent in the world of rockstars then look no further than Ms. Flite!

    I received this book as a ARC for a honest review....

    This is a Novella so it is a short book, however there is a lot to this. I really enjoyed and can't wait to start book 2 in this series.. If you like Rock Star's you will like this.

    Drez is the lead singer for the group Four and a Half Headstones. After the lead guitarist continues to screw up he is booted from the back leaving them on tour now short a guitarist.. As they as auditioning for a new guitarist Lola is encouraged to try by her brother who was rejected 2 years earlier.
    There is an attraction between Lola and Drez however, Lola has had a messed up childhood and Drez just seems to think he is too dark for anyone.

    Seems there will be a lot more to them and I can't wait to find out..

    I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Please know that while this isn't a long book, it will literally grab your attention within the first two paragraphs; you won't remember
    to exhale until this story has released you from its vise-like grip when you see those four dreaded words:

    "End of Book One"

    Once you see those four words, you should already have book two lined up in your queue next, because you won't want to let the
    downtime in between linger for too long.

    I love the dual POV narration in the story; Nora Flite managed to capture both Drez's and Lola's feelings equally, but without making
    either MC sound either too self-serving, or weak. We get to experience Lola's nervousness when she plays with the band for the first
    time in practice, how she saw Drez's reaction to her mistakes and what she does to handle the situation. At the same time, we really
    get to see the effect Lola has on Drez (but he refuses to let it show around anyone else). On top of that, throw in sexual tension and
    you've got one helluva story!

    I can't wait to learn more about both Lola's and Drez's backstory, and how the situation with Lola's brother Sean plays out.
    I highly recommend this series!
