“Can one of these five rockstars fill the hole in my heart? Or will I stay broken forever?”
Young, dumb, and broke.
That’s what started everything. With five dollars in her pocket, and everything she owns stuffed in the back of her car, Lilith Goode’s life is over. Done. Destroyed.
Ten words. One text. That’s what it took to change the whole world.
A crumpled concert ticket. A chance encounter. That’s what it takes to start all over again.
Five rockstars. One girl. Six dark hearts, six withered souls.
But can one broken person really put another back together again?
First things first – on Goodreads and Amazon, the synopsis for this book starts with the following:
“WARNING: This book has one girl and five bad boy rockstars. She owns them all–heart, body and soul.
Don’t read it unless you like to ugly cry…and also unless you like threesomes, foursomes…and moresomes.”
That was not on the book description that I saw initially, so it is fair to say that this was something of a surprise element for me. But please don’t misunderstand me – although I don’t often read books in the menage genre, I’m glad that I didn’t miss out on this one.
This book is explicit. There is, as you might expect, a lot of sex, with creative and evocative language. But it isn’t just about the sex. There are 6 very different characters here, and the author seems to go to great pains to emphasise those differences at times.
I must admit Lilith’s constant crying is exhausting and, at points, downright irritating. However, you cant help but feel sorry for the poor girl. However, that does make the comparison with the confident girl who hooks up with these rock stars all the more stark.
That said, if you take out the sex, there is still a tender, if complex love story within the pages of this book. The characters all have their redeeming qualities, even when they are being difficult.
Although not a usual genre, I look forward to seeing how this particular relationship tangle unfurls over the next couple of books.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.
She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.
Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.
