Steamy is one word for this book - there was a LOT of hot, steamy sex between Bastien and Aaron!! But as with all of L.A. Witt's stories, the sex is definitely the icing, not the main cake.
It's actually an intriguing idea - what happens when two members of a band start a relationship? Previously for Aaron, the end of the relationship meant the end of the band. Hence his understanding when he joined his brother and sister's band why they had such a rule in place. But that doesn't stop him falling for Bastien. That was fine as long as he thought Bastien was straight - when he found out that Bastien is bisexual, and that the attraction is mutual - and suddenly all bets are off.
Keeping the relationship from the other band members, avoiding Bastien's psychotic ex-girlfriend whilst becoming rock stars is not the easiest thing to do, but Aaron and Bastien seem more than up to the task. Until they start to fall in love....
This is an amazing read - I totally loved it: the relationship between Bastien and Aaron; the way things were between the siblings; how everything started to fall apart - just absolutely briilliant. And let's not forget the amazing sex!!
Five star all the way - something I have come to expect from L.A. Witt!! ...more

Elliott ends up stuck at the airport wondering what the hell he was thinking. But then he meets Derek, and all of his planning, lists and second guessing don't stop him from going with his gut (or lower) and taking the gorgeous man back to his hotel room.
A short story that packs a punch, I loved every word of it - the witty one liners; the steamy sex; how L A Witt managed to cram so much story into a short was amazing. I love reading her stuff and this was no exception. I was very pleased to find the sequel on Amberquill and I can confirm that it is well worth the wait - an excellent story from start to finish....more

Witt book is an auto read for me - I have loved each and every one she has written so far and pre-ordered A J's Angel so it downloaded automatically.
I loved Seb - he sounded sweet, snarky, funny, sad, very human. I didn't like Luke. And that affected the whole story for me. I'm not sure if I was hoping there was a reason for him being a complete dick all those years ago or what, but I just couldn't forgive him. Seb did and I know that should mean I can too but I just didn't think he deserved forgiveness. Maybe that's a flaw within me but that's why this book (for me) was a 4 star instead of a 5. I didn't feel I was given enough reason to forgive him - he was young, he was an idiot but he's changed. Yeah obviously the loss of A J had a big impact on him but no, I just didn't like it.
The games he played, the cocky attitude - all of it combined, for me, into a character I would have liked to see Seb listen to, accept his apology then walk away to someone better. I understand Seb's in love and they have history and that makes all the difference for him. But I couldn't get past the fact that he basically risked Seb's life every time he cheated and came back; he admitted that he wasn't really sorry until much later - how do you trust someone like that again??
So although I read it in one sitting, right through the night, in the end I didn't like it because I wanted someone better for Seb.
The writing was, as always, in turns emotional, hot, tense, sarky, funny - all the right things to drag you into the story and make you care. L.A. never lets you down there - if you're reading one of her stories, you are fully engaged the whole way through. Just this time, the HEA wasn't with who I wanted and that's more my fault than anything else.
