Gone for You

As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until

Overview

As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile.

And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas. So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Simple, right?

Note: You won't need to turn up the heat—Sixth Street Bands Romances have plenty of steamy fun. This story can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Sixth Street Bands music scene.

I guess I should start with the basics. The backstory. I was born and raised in California. At this point I'm usually asked what it was like to grow up near the beach, but sadly, I don't know. I grew up in the "other" part of California. Perfect for an aspiring writer, if you ask me. You learn a lot about keeping yourself busy when the nearest house is a mile away...and it belongs to your grandparents. By the time I went to high school, I started writing romance. Why? Because I met my very own prince charming. I wrote love poems in my journal about the green eyed boy that stole my heart. He promised, the way all storybook hero's do, to sweep me away and take me on a grand adventure. And he did. We picked up and moved to the Lone Star State, and began the story of us. The best stories begin without a road map or a compass. Veering off course makes the journey so much more interesting. True to form, just when I thought my life was set, we started the next adventure. I traded in my cowboy boots and followed my green eyed boy to Las Vegas. My home will always be in Texas, but my heart is anywhere that he is. Writing is what I love. I might stray from the romance every now and then if that is what moves me...but I always come back. Some of the stories don't seem romantic at all. They are gritty stories about flawed characters that find each other and hold on tight. Those are the stories that speak to me. Because that's life. I believe that every story should have a happy ending- even the difficult ones.

4 out of 5 stars! Rock star guitarist, Cameron, has a good life. However, when his friend, and bandmate, is placed in the hospital Cameron's life is sidelined by the need to stay in one place for an extended period of time. During that time, he meets Lily. Lily comes from a well-known Texas family, who disowned her when she decided to do what she always wanted with her life by becoming an artist, and sets Cameron's life on fire as he goes about pursuing her. Yet, are they meant for only a few good memories or something more worthwhile? While I loved the cover its book description didn’t really sell me on this novel, who helped want to read it was Eat Sleep Read Review’s own review for this novel as it explained a lot. Now that I’ve read this novel, I can say that I was pleasantly surprised that I liked reading from a single POV standpoint, Cameron’s POV to be exact, as much as I did. Cameron is forthright in his beliefs and wants making it hard for the reader not to agree with him. Plus, I found his attraction and “chase” for Lily to be very endearing. They are very sweet together. In addition, while I still wished I could read a bit from Lily’s perspective, I liked the way Cameron handles everything that came his way. He was the perfect “reformed” playboy rock star hero! I hope to see the rest of Cameron’s band matched up as this series progresses! I recommend this novel to those looking for a lighthearted yet sultry rock star romance! Review By: From Me to You ...

So good I read it twice. "Band" books not usually my cup of tea BUT, WOW. This book was definitely my cup of tea. Well written, characters you cheer for, great dialog. Loved Cameron, he's a forthright standup guy, once smitten with Lily, he's in all the way. Lily is fearless in her love for Cam. I couldn't stop reading. I too hope there's more to come about the other band mates and maybe some updates included on Cam and Lily. I checked for other books by Jayne Frost and found none but will check from time to time to see if more come along. This was a free read but I would have gladly paid for the read. Just do yourself a favor and read this book.

This one really surprised me. I picked up the book prepared for the usual rockstar tale filled with sex, drugs, rock and roll and major drama surrounding the "lifestyle." I don't even usually read this kind of romance, but I'm from Texas so I was intrigued. Anyhow, here's what surprised me: the whole book is told from Cameron's view point. He wasn't an assh**e, but a nice guy who just happened to play in a band. He had women throwing themselves at him-and after reading a little about him I could see why. But once he met Lily, the story revolved around THEM. There was none of that drama BS about other women. And the side characters, Cameron's interaction with his bandmates? Awesome. Especially Logan. I can't wait to read his story. Gone for You was a really enjoyable read and I highly recommend it, even if you're not from Texas.

DNF @ 70% Gone For You was a weird one for me. I really enjoyed how this book started off and I liked both of our main characters, Lily and Cameron. It was the sudden change in Lily's character that lost me. I must've missed the moment she went from purposely distancing herself from Cameron, to suddenly being completely okay with being another one of Cameron's conquests. What I had originally liked about Lily was the strength she possessed, but from one page to another she turned into a lovestruck groupie and I was really turned off by that. I do think that part of this was due to Gone For You being written only from Cameron's perspective. Had it been written with alternating POVs, then it would've been easier to follow along with the switch. I tried to stick with the story even after losing interest, but ultimately decided to put it down for good @ 70%. *Thank you to Sixth Street Press and Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange of an honest review.*

I had so much fun with this book. I love Cameron Knight's character and the fact that it was all from his perspective was very enthralling. I loved the writing style of the author. Her description of Dallas and the scenery made me feel as if I was truly there. I was fortunate enough to be on vacation when I started this book and it was the perfect book to enjoy. This book left me wanting more and I can't wait to see what Jayne Frost produces next!

Lily has a great job at a resort in Dallas. She had no idea what she was in for when this famous guitarist walks into her life. Cameron Knight looked like nothing but trouble but what was wrong with finding out just how much trouble he could be. I'll just cut to the chase about Gone for You. I struggled with the rating on this one, I didn't know whether to give it one or two stars. Harsh, right? I just really didn't connect with ... anything ... in this book. I will say this, this story is told from the POV of Cameron Knight. It's not too often that you can find a contemporary romance novel written from a male's perspective. I was super intrigued by that. It's interesting to get into someone's head ... especially a dude's because for this character, I figured his head would be full of bong resin and hops. I was correct on the latter. There was a lot of the latter. But there would need to be for the rock and roller cliche to be complete. That also, was harsh. But I'm sorry I'm not sorry. And the reason I'm not sorry is that this book seemed to be one big cliche ... the band getting female attention, the band putting as many notches in their bedposts as they can a night, drunken hookups, the manager that is horrible ... it was all in there. I just expected more, maybe that is why I feel so let down. I didn't really like any of the characters. They felt like they didn't have any depth ... while you're told portions about each of their backgrounds, it just isn't enough. The characters aren't fleshed out enough to make them seem even semi-real. Well, I take that back. There was one character that I really enjoyed but he literally had maybe a page total out of the whole book that was about him. The sad part is that I felt more connected to him than I did the main hero. It shouldn't be like that. I shouldn't struggle to see these characters as people. To be honest, the whole book felt like it was written very one-dimensionally. There was conflict but it was resolved too easily, it didn't seem like real life. That's basically my whole issue with this book ... a lack of reality. I won't go on with this any more, I think you got the point. I don't think that this author is for me. Maybe she is for you though, good luck. * I received this novel in exchange for an honest review *
