Reno Rocket, bass player for the rock band Dazed, thinks he's on the straight and narrow, but is his girlfriend just a cover for his confused sexuality? When the new lead singer, Tanner Star, walks in, Reno's libido snaps to attention. His attraction to the famous rock star is immediate and disconcerting. Performing with Tanner every night blows Reno's mind, and the moment Tanner grinds against him on stage, "curious" takes on a whole new meaning.
Tanner wants more than a lover. He wants a sub, and he's willing to guide Reno into the world of BDSM. In turn, Reno wants to be everything to Tanner-lover, sub, and partner-but he fears the ghost of Tanner's dead boyfriend will come between them.
At first they manage to find a balance and life is idyllic... until one rash action by Tanner plunges their new love affair into chaos. Will Reno admit to the world that he's gay and face the media and his family's wrath, or will he deny the love and exquisite attention Tanner's world has brought him?

This is actually a 2.5 for me. It wasn't bad, but it seemed forced. Reno was irritating, to me. He wanted Tanner, but he didn't want to be gay. He said he wanted him to "Dom" him, but then he was insecure and kept changing his mind any time some random thing was brought up. He claimed to trust Tanner, but then went right back to wanting out when things weren't perfect. Although discovering his sexuality was still new, especially with the BDSM thrown in, he was too much of a whiny little boy about to be really likeable. Tanner could have been interesting, but he was just a bit too much of the stereotype of a Dom. It felt like someone who had heard of BDSM and that is what they imagined a Dom to be like. His issues with control and having a sub push him too far, but being okay with it (even letting it change him and his rules) didn't feel realistic. He would say or think one thing, then do something else. Overall, this wasn't my favorite. I actually had to make myself finish it and I don't often do that with books. It was rushed, forced, a bit unrealistic, and just underwhelming. I didn't feel any of the emotions during their friendship (short as it was), their romance, or even the sex. It was just blah. 400+ pgs.
This was a great book overall. I just think that it could have had a bit more depth to make it awesome. Some of the things in this book could have used a little more detail.. the flow of the story was too quick. It had the potential to be awesome, just needed a little more...
