Rock Into Me
I couldn't put this down until I finished it.
Singing at a hard won gig Alana makes eye contact with JP a tough, arrogant music man. From his expression he doesn't seem to like her singing and the scene is set for a scorching encounter after the show.
From the first page you are absorbed into the gig's atmosphere and feel Alana's frustration at JP's derogatory opinion of her. The setting is glitzy but hard edged and grounded in reality.
A real page turner. This tempting novella leaves the reader with a 'Happy For Now' ending and definitely wanting more of Alana,JP and music city.
Crash & Burn (Rule Breaker, #2)
'Crash & Burn' delivers and enhances the passion, emotional torment and glitzy, hard edged rock atmosphere which I so enjoyed in the first book in the series 'Rock into Me' a definite must read.
Alana is devastated both physically and emotionally. She burns for Jon but shies away because he has the means to destroy her body and soul. Jon is left wondering if he can give up Alana his latest rock star protégée after a night of erotic and disturbingly emotional loving. Attempts to establish their fledgling business relationship lead to arguments, longing and inevitable sex as each encounter feeds their uncontrollable addiction.
This is a book best suited to mature adults as the sexual scenes are numerous and explicit. That said they demonstrate the growing emotional connection between Alana and Jon far better than hot looks and constant forays into the characters' psyche would do.
Alana and Orion's experience of Music city is interesting. Crash & Burn features interesting cameos of other group members and Jon's staff that enrich the plot.
My advice is to read 'Rock Into Me' first and enjoy Alana and Jon's electric meeting to fully appreciate the hot erotic romance Crash & Burn delivers.
