Ryker Oakley only cared about three things during school —fighting, his band, and getting laid. When he took it upon himself to 'babysit' Bryleigh Munroe, he didn't expect her to be so much trouble, and he sure as shit wasn't prepared for how fast she would grow on him. Fast-forward to eight years later, his band—Twisted Transistor—is the most successful rock group known to mankind. When his brother's wedding brings the only girl he ever came close to caring about, back into his life, he discovers something he thought they had left behind in the past, had been destroying her daily.
Bryleigh Munroe was a popular girl at school, but because her father was a politically powerful man in the San Diego region, the boys either swore away from her or were trying too hard to get with her. She wanted one night. Quick and dirty. No strings. Only she didn't expect Ryker Oakley to flip the script on her without her even realizing. Eight years later, Bryleigh still battles with the mistakes she made when she was younger. She's had to deal with things that she shouldn't have had to, all on her own.
After all this time has their bond remained silent? Can she forgive the torment Ryker inflicted on her? Or will the choices they made all those years ago force them to re-unite.

I think I am officially obsessed with this author because every time I read her books I get completely consumed by everything in the book I am reading. Everything in the world gets closed off for me and it feels like I am sitting near the people in the stories she tells. Especially this book had me right next to Bryleigh for the entire book, even if it switched to another person, and my stomach was aching around every different chapter wondering how things could have gone this way or that. This read takes you back to what happened with Bryleigh and Ryker all those years ago during high school and what happened between them for Ryker to not have her family invited to a certain event. Let me tell you I was LIVID when I read about the past that she was put through and no wonder Ryker didn't want them invited. I understood how Ryker was from reading Losing Traction but the way he reacted with Phoebe made me hope he wasn't guy I had pictured in my head. But, Ryker is well, Ryker and he has a hot head when it comes to Bryleigh. This book was my everything for the past two days, and two days because I wanted to expand this book out as much as I could because I am in love with these characters. All things that include this band and the people they are connected to pulled me into their world and has me aching for more. Some crazy stuff happens throughout this book and not only did those things shock me but they left me speechless with many different emotions. Ms. Jones kept me sad, excited, turned on, disgusted, hurt, and I even laughed quite a bit with Indie and Phoebe at times. If you haven't read an Amo Jones book yet, I suggest you start now because they are dark but they are AMAZING!!
Amazing. Simply amazing. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I picked this book up, but being a reviewer, I’ve read lots of Rock Star romances. This was not one of them. I say that, because this book didn’t focus on the band playing gigs or band life so much as the off stage life of its members. Particularly Bayleigh Munroe and Ryker Oakley. This is the second book in the series, and having been the first one I’ve read, you can bet I’ll be going back to read the first one. The story focuses on first when Bay and Ryker were in high school. The band had already started to become popular, and Bay and Ryker were just getting together. But an ugly incident causes a even uglier split between the two of them, causing awful repercussions. I’ll admit, I hated Ryker just a bit during all of this. Eight years later, and Bay has come back for a wedding, but repercussions are still being felt over what happened in high school. Lots goes on here, and it’s Amo Jones superb character building that makes this a novel that just had me riveted to my seat. I read this all in one go, and she’s defintely become a must-buy author. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an Honest Review
