This book wasn't what I expected, but I ate it up! Roxanna is the daughter of a Rock God and is struggling to find her own way in life. When her ex left in the middle of the night, she shut off her emotions and has been living a fairly isolated and lonely life ever since. One day while working at a record store preparing for a new band to come in for a signing, she puts in their CD and is so moved by the music that she begins to actually "feel" again and is drawn to the vocals in the background. Later that day, she meets Parker - the man behind that voice. They share an instant connection and Roxanna feels safe in Parker's presence - despite him being a musician. The story moves quickly in time, and they don't get to spend nearly enough enough of it together but their bond is so strong that it seems to transcend time and space. There are, of course, obstacles that need to be overcome. There isn't a lot of discussions regarding either of their pasts and quite a bit of omission of information because of it. When a dangerous threat rears its head, it's at a point where Roxanna (aka Jimi) doesn't "like" Parker, but she does trust him...just not herself. This book was written very well and told by the girl living a lifestyle that most of us have always wondered about. The book flows really well and leaves you wanting more, but also questioning what is going on. It does end on a small cliff and I'm looking forward to reading Volume 2. I would recommend this book to all who love romance with a hitch as well as rockers. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Roxy grew up in a wealthy family. Her father was a rock star. Roxy worked at Vintage. She had lived in a vacuum since her boyfriend had walked out on her a year before. Then she heard a voice on an album that seemed to wake her up. Then she met him at Vintage when his band was doing a promotion, but she knew she should stay away from him. He would bring her back to life and she liked the void because she didn't hurt or feel. I liked all of the ins and outs Roxy went through until she let true love win. It was a great story and plot with a little danger thrown in, and excellent characters. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

The blurb for this book intrigued me and since I’ve never read anything from this author before, I was all in. Unfortunately it just didn’t live up to my expectations. I liked the story itself, it has a lot of potential but the execution and the characters were just off for me. Roxanna, who also goes by “Roxy”, “CC” and “Jimi” in this story, is the daughter of a rock star. She’s very vulnerable where her dad is concerned and is always suspicious of the motives of others because of it. She always suspects that they just want to use her to get to her dad and that’s understandable, he’s a rich musician after all. I just didn’t really care for her. She’s a weak person and just seems mopey. In my opinion, she just needs to get out of her own head. There is so much inner monologue because she is constantly going over pretty much the same things, over and over again in her head. It just made the book drag for me. I liked Parker but the aura of suspense that the author writes into the story had me doubting him for much of the story. He’s got himself between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Roxanna. I don’t want to give spoilers so I’ll just say that it’s going to take some work on his part to make it right but his heart is in the right place. As far as Roxanna and Parker together, it didn’t even seem like they were even in a relationship for most of the book. Roxanna spent so much of the time waffling between wanting Parker, needing to stay away from Parker, hating Parker, refusing to ask the questions she wanted to ask because she didn’t think she had the right, etc. In her own words, “I just had to figure out how to stop getting in my own way.” I just didn’t feel the relationship in this one.

Vintage by Lisa Suzanne is a love story with a twist. The writing flows smoothly, the story is completely engaging, and the characters are unique. Roxy is daughter of a rock superstar and has always had to live with the spotlight never far away. She works at Vintage, a record store that has branched out to sell vintage band apparel and other like-type items. They occasionally have signing events at the store and the first one we, as readers, get to see is for a band called Flashing Light. This is where Parker comes into the picture for us. parker is the lead guitarist that Roxy has been listening to in the store all day. It's his voice and lyrics she is drawn to not the lead singers and despite the walls she has built up around herself over the past year she is starting to feel again because of his music. Parker is the hunky lead guitarist of Flashing Light and he is hot for Roxy. He defends her against the skeevy advances of his fellow band member and drummer and doesn't realize she's overheard him defending her. But Parker has secrets and those secrets have the potential to push away the one thing he wants to hold close... Roxy. I cannot wait for the next book to find out what happens because I think things are about to get very real, very fast!
