I usually leave the reviewing to other people but since I don't see any here yet I have to speak up. This book has all the tortured hot rock star, shy college student, angst filled love triangle plots I have come to expect in these really good Indie books. It is loaded with plot twists-some you'll see coming and some that will completely blindside you. It was a great roller coaster ride. This one was a 5star read for me.
Wilbourn's story got increasingly better with each and every chapter. I couldn't put the book down, waiting to see what was next in store for her main character Deanna. The songs she wrote for the novel were also well done for her heavy metal band - Metal Urge. A great read for fans of the genre.
