Story
Ash London, front man for uber-successful rock band Ferrum, is over the lifestyle. He’s done with it all, yet finds himself going through the motions out of a sense of obligation to his fans, band, and crew members. He’s living the dream, but what he wants is to be a normal dude with an ordinary life far away from the touring scene. He could have any woman he wanted, but what he wants is someone who can look past the rock star—someone who will bust down the walls he’s built around himself and break free the man lying dormant within. 

Lila Stephens hasn’t had the best past. In fact, it’s been downright traumatic. After the death of her beloved grandmother, she picks up her life and moves to Brooklyn, NY to build a new life for herself. She’s given up on the notion of love and is content living alone with her beagle dog. 

Lila attends a party thrown by her best friend, Tori, who just happens to be the wife of Ferrum guitarist, Matty Tabor. As she’s ready to leave, a drunken man runs into her, sending her falling into the arms of Ash London. Will she stay there where it’s warm and comforting, or will she flee as her past threatens to taint any hope of happiness for the two of them? 

My Thoughts
I got this book for an honest review and you straight away find out that there is some complication going to happen and a huge drama going on and then you get to the story from the beginning and when you finish the book you are not done and the beginning makes sort of sence but you are missing so much so its not complete. This for me is a bit of a turn down. I like series and have no problem to read them but I like books with some kind of ending that connects to the beginning and this book dont. You have to read the second book to understand the first part of the book. I think it would have been better to skip the prolouge and just tell the story and make a litte better ending for this one and even then have a second book.

The style is written between two altering persons and at first I had no problem with it and thought it would be interesting to see the story from both the hot sexy rockstar and then girl who falls in love with him, but after a while it got pretty boring. It dont didnt give the depth I had wished for. It didnt give the book anything and I would have prefered another way of writing.

So the story itself isnt that bad, it is pretty interesting but very slow and I was bored part times of it. It felt like nothing is happening for the first part of the book, there where of course but as soon as anything was about to happen, it was ended so we never got any depth to it and it bored me out and i had parts where I thought I would fall asleep while other parts where brilliant.

I give the book 3 stars beause the book is readable and quite interesting and the story itself is interesting even if it is slow and could have been made more interesting.

You can also find me review on Goodreads and on amazon
