When he fell in love, he fell hard. When he lost her, he lost his will.Drugs, sex, and rock and roll—in that order—became his life.River James, the drummer for Steel Total Destruction, loved the brotherhood he formed with his unlikely best friend and his band mates, and the family he found in his label until one tragic accident takes it all away in the blink of an eye. Twisted metal, shattered bones, crushed dreams, and torn wreckage causes deep, dark secrets to be revealed and he quickly turns to the sure things in life: drugs and women. Will he find himself in the wreckage or will he lose his way in the smoke and debris?
The first person in her family to graduate from high school and college, Keanna Sutton is flying high on her accomplishments. She has the career and man of her dreams…or so she thought. While recovering from a break-up she has a chance run-in with a tall, handsome, silver-tongued drummer who tests her strength and ability to hold her own tongue. She desperately tries to ignore the implausible attraction to River – a man she knows will be no good for her. When she finally throws caution to the wind, she finds herself getting rocked the only way a badass like River can: hard and nasty. Will the hottest night of her life end there? Or will she lose herself in a man whose only promise is that a lady always comes first?
This is one very emotional and troubling ride from the first page to the last. River has a lot of things to get over from his past, a lot of acceptance to achieve and a lot of forgiveness to give. His growth throughout the story is amazing. This is a book of hope for anyone what has faced horrific events and turned to drugs or anything else to numb the pain. Keanna becomes a beacon of hope for River in the face of a life he has created in order to survive. Can these two survive the rocky road River faces? To find out, grab this one now!
This series is great and I love all of the STD guys but River has become my favorite. The author does an excellent job of telling a difficult story. Be prepared to feel a full array of emotions in this book. You will laugh but you will also need the tissue box to be close by! Oh, and I don’t think I have mentioned that River is super hot! Five huge stars for this one.
(This is a book for the over 18 group due to sensitive subjects, sexual situations and language.)
