Author: Selena Laurence
Publication Date: February 22, 2014
Joss Jamison has it all. He’s the lead singer for the world’s hottest rock band, Lush. He’s wealthy, sexy, talented…and miserable. Twelve months ago, Joss lost his finely honed control and made a mistake he can’t undo. A mistake that could end up costing him his best friend, his band, and maybe his heart.
Mel DiLorenzo has it all. She’s been hired to document the world tour of her sister’s fiance’s rock band. She’s gorgeous, talented, loved…and sick of being the little sister. When she agrees to the summer job, Mel has no idea she’s walking into a minefield of friendships lost and hearts destroyed. She also has no idea what it means to be the object of Joss Jamison’s affections.
One hot rock star plus one life-altering mistake, add a dash of sexy younger sister and a handful of broken hearts, and you’ve got a recipe for fire. Life on the road can be hot, but for the boys of Lush, it’s about to get a whole hell of a lot hotter.
This book sucked me in from the beginning. I loved the characters and of course, I am always up for reading about hot rockers! This was much more than just a typical rock star love story. This book went to the heart of what betrayal can do to people, even when that betrayal stems from the ravages of addiction.
Joss & Mel are great characters and their love story was touching. Joss had thought he had loved before but realized that he had never felt the way he felt for Mel. The relationship between Joss & Mel’s sister was a source of tension throughout the book. This book delved into what impact Joss’s best friends alcoholism and recovery had on Joss. It showed how poor choices during stressful times can haunt you for much longer than you could ever expect.
The author does a great job of having you feel the emotions of these characters. This is a great book with all kinds of emotions running through it. I loved the book and can’t wait for the Lush #2. Five stars! Oh….it is also on sale for .99 until April 23rd, so treat yourself today!
