Use cash and keep moving.

After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life.
Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash,
and life out of the spotlight.  But when my path collides with West, the
lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his
spotlight-especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.

West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by
little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he
wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.

The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become
blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our
friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing
in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by
it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love…


I’m not going to beat about the bush here.  This is, on the whole, a beautifully written, touching and achingly tender book.  It’s not perfect.   I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop.  As a result, I was always a little on edge whilst I was reading it.  And, yes, there are some gaps in the story.

However, that aside, the character development is lovely, and a real strength of the tale.  This is a book that provided a true escape into its pages.  I loved it.
