He’s lighting up the stage.
But not even the brightest spotlight can reach the shadows of a broken soul.
Every wanna-be rocker dreams of the day when crazed fans will pack their shows. But the more people worship me as some kind of musical god, the more I realize why singers are called "performers." I'm just a pretender. A fake.
I need something real. Something to break through the revolting glamour that's bled into every part of my life. And for one perfect night, I found that in Sara.
Then she ran.
No sane woman would’ve ever walked away from Declan Hollis after only one night. But
walking away from him was the safest move for both of us.
I've spent so much time burying my old self in the past, trying to erase the vulnerable person I used to be. I’m smarter now—men are dangerous, and relationships are doubly so.
But the more time I spend away from him, the more I want to go back.
I may end up shattered all over again. Or maybe, just maybe, he'll be the one to help me pick up the pieces.
Lauren Stewart grew up reading Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, James Clavell, Piers Anthony, and Agatha Christie, which explains why she can't seem to stick to one genre at a time.
She got to the more romantic stuff pretty late, but paranormal romance was what changed her from an obsessed reader into an obsessed reader and writer. Her writing style comes from a mash-up of all her early favorites and her new ones, women like JR Ward, Karen Marie Moning, Alice Clayton, Emma Scott, and Janet Evanovich. Wow, how much would you pay to be invited to that dinner party?
Lauren wants to make people think, cry, and giggle, not necessarily all at the same time (although it's great when it happens). In every one of her books, you'll find elements of other genres - fantasy, mystery, romance, paranormal, suspense, YA, women's literature, all with a touch of humor.
Because what doesn't kill us should make us laugh.
I really enjoyed the previous books I have read from this author so I was excited to get a chance to read this one. I really liked Declan and Sara. Declan was just a sweetheart and not the usual guy in a band. I really have been turned off rockstar romances but if more heroes were like Declan that would change. I liked Sara too. I felt like I got to know these characters separately before I knew them together. And I really loved them together too. They had their issues but they earned that hea. Overall I really enjoyed this one.
