As a teenager, Addy Monroe had a life-changing experience—although technically the “experience” was happening to someone else in the steamed-up backseat of the taxi stuck in traffic next to him. Six years later, at a club in LA, Addy meets rock singer Zak Roscoe—the man who unwittingly taught him who he is—and gets a shot at experiencing Zak for himself.
A private and guarded person, Zak finds Addy’s determined advances both annoying and intriguing, and he allows himself to be seduced for a night of pleasure. Unfortunately, some old habits die hard: Zak’s postcoital nature leaves something to be desired, and Addy quickly realizes that sometimes fantasy and reality don’t have much in common. If wishes were second chances….

This was a good book, but not a must-have. The beginning was interesting and made me think it would be more, but the prologue was really the best part. The writing was too flowery and expansive, like the author was trying too hard to use "five dollar words" rather than just writing in a normal tone. Sometimes the narrative would go off in a tangent and I would lose focus on the story just trying to keep up with the writing. The idea was good, but the execution fell short. The writing made Zak a jerk which made it hard to want to see Addy get together with him, and Addy just came across as needy and naive. He "love" was based on fantasies of the man, not the actual person. There was no depth to either of the main characters, so I didn't really get invested in either one of them or the story. By the end, I kind of just wanted it to be over. They didn't really get a HEA, just a start, but that was okay, because I didn't really want to read more unrealistic prose anyway. It was 200 pgs, but really needs to be re-written to make it work. The length wasn't the issue, the content was.
