Overview

Access Unlimited by Alice Severin

They say you never know someone until you take a trip with them. But this isn't a holiday – this is the comeback tour for Tristan Hunter. His brilliantly crafted debut solo album is getting a lot of attention thanks to Lily Taylor, the music journalist. She's there to write up the tour, if what goes on backstage can even be printed. One thing she won't be writing about is her passionate relationship with the star. They want to make it work, but there are a lot of obstacles to romantic bliss on a tour bus.

AC Clark, the guitarist from Tristan's old band Devised, is also along for the ride. No stranger to excess, AC has a lot of memories about the bad old days, and he's ready to share. Lily is learning fast what happens on the road, stays there...but some secrets are too big to hide. And Tristan knows the stage will take everything he has – and push him right to the edge. When past and present collide, it might be a crash no one recovers from...

Highly recommended series! ACCESS UNLIMITED is the third in the trilogy. It could easily be read as a standalone novel, though part of the joy is getting to know Tristan, its enigmatic rock star hero, slowly, much as its journalist narrator Lily does.  The early parts of the book have Lily adjusting to the rhythms of tour bus life. There’s a palpable sensation of ever-forward movement through exquisitely described urban landscapes. The back bedroom of the bus that she shares with her lover, Tristan, becomes a cocoon where they can retreat from the pressures of life on the road and the demands of Tristan’s fans. But bunking on the other side of the thin walls lies fellow bandmate AC, Tristan's oldest friend, whose quick wit and easy flirtations with Lily imperfectly conceal an inner loneliness. This is some beautiful writing, not a word wasted, with laugh-out loud funny dialogue and some story-advancing sex scenes that evoke such emotional and visceral intensity that to not be moved by them might mean that one does not have a pulse.  Its unblinking social commentary shows a world that venerates money and fame, callously indifferent to the earth’s natural beauty, or to the bonds of friendship and love. At its heart, it is a love story, exploring the question of what it means to form a bond with someone—not the things one merely says, but the actions one takes, when one values another’s happiness as one’s own. The characters will stay with you long after the last sentence. Rarely have I read a book that leaves me feeling as emotionally drained as this one did. Alice Severin is a writer to follow.
