Overview

Emma, the good girl poster child, is running from a life she suddenly sees as gray and suffocating-a life where she's successfully buried all her hopes and secret dreams. Until the night she wanders into Aftershock and is immediately drawn to the hot bass player. The electricity of his performance, the powerful music he coaxes from his guitar, the heavy vibration of each note reaches out to something deep inside her and wakes an Emma she didn't even know existed.

Marc doesn't much care for the groupies who hang around the band. He needs a woman he can create a future with that's a counterpoint to the craziness of the rock music business. When he sees Emma for the first time, something inside him cracks wide open. Just one sizzling glance between them, and he's sure he's found the woman to complete his life.

But as the relationship grows, there's a huge stumbling block: Emma won't tell him her name. The sex is fabulous but he wants more....

Although Emma is finally finding her true self, her fear of everything falling apart builds a barrier she can't seem to cross. Marc is taking her on the joy ride of her life, but will her own insecurities destroy everything?

    When the books opens you meet Emma Blake who has had enough of her humdum boring life. After suddenly breaking up with her boyfriend she decides to head to the last place on earth she would ever go. Aftershock is a bar where great bands preform and people drink beer. As Emma pulls up outside she knows that this is a place she has to check out. Once inside she orders her first beer ever and heads to the stage to watch the band. Mark is the bass guitarist of the band and Emma is drawn to him like lighting. Which is the name of the band Marc is in. They make eye contact and that evening they make sweet music together. Emma gives herself a fake name Music Lady which is what she wants to become.

    The rest of the story is Emma coming to terms with the new person she is becoming and her learning to trust Marc. She feels that all he is, is the bass guitarist that she met at the club however Marc has a much deeper side. He spends much of the book trying to learn more about the real Emma and not that girl he met at the bar. He knows if he is patient enough she'll come around!

    I highly recommend this book. It was fun to read and it made me think a little about myself. I would love to shed my quite personality and go meet a guy in a band and Emma shows me that he can be everything I'm looking for! Wonderful job, Desiree!

    Very hot!

    The heroine has issues. Being the good girl, doing the same thing everyday, just isn't what Emma wants. She needs to experience how to be bad. Going to a bar, lusting for the bass player, Marc, going home with him, keeping secrets, running from a boring life...Whew! Desiree keeps you interested! The sex is hot, hot, hot! But the attraction between the characters..seeing them work out there issues and making their lives fit; I loved every second of this book! Once again, Desiree has wrote an awesome story! Its a must read!
