When artiste extraordinaire and grunge rocker, Eric Peterson, returns home after living on the Portland streets, he finds most things unchanged, except for one thing. His best friend, Kevin, has moved on to another relationship, causing negativity and pain to resurface in Eric's short, angry, inspired life.
Desperate, Eric will stop at nothing to secure a blast of smack, and fellow art student, Brian, tries to help, seeing that Eric's pain might extinguish his artistic brilliance.
When Eric finds DAZED, he gives up the drugs cold turkey and climbs brutally through the nightmarish world of addiction. Eric's journey leads to self-discovery, love and passion, and a triumphant survival in a world that hates junkies and fags.
CONTENT ADVISORY: There are mentions of a close MF relationship as well as several MM encounters with varying partners.

I must admit this was not the usual type of book I read. I am super happy that I did. While the story is written about Eric - a once homeless grunge rocker (throw in relentless drug user), you can't help but feel the intense emotional release of the author as if telling this story was her own personal therapy. Reading it you almost feel as you are in a documentary or behind the music of classic rockers only more intense. This book is definitely for mature audiences and NOT for the faint at heart. It speaks on several issues in the world of rock and roll including drugs, sex (hot sweaty sex mf/mm), and death. I would recommend readers be at least 18 or over. Great Job to the author and I cant wait til book 2 (wait, was that a spoiler?). I gave it 4 out of 5 only because it doesn't let me do halves. Otherwise it would have been 4.5 stars. If it wasn't for my not liking this genre typically I would have given it all fives. I think this book is highly underrated.
DAZED is a romantic story of a different kind, nonetheless heartfelt and a tear-jerker. I fell in love with Eric Peterson, the main character who reminded me of Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Grunge Rock is a subject never covered. What a refreshing change in a dramatic setting. Loved the book and happy it is part of the DAZED series.
