This book had so much unfulfilled potential.

The MCs fell in love so quickly. Why? The first time is the most delicious. Why rush? Why can't characters get to know each other first? The main conflict then revolved around "coming out" or not to the public, which IMO is of marginal interest compared to the great story of strangers becoming lovers.

Evan was suppose to be "reserved" but he was spilling his emotional history after knowing Jesse a couple of weeks!!

Occasionally there was too much "tell" (especially in the early chapters) which stopped me relaxing into the story. For example the hotel concierge sharing detailed knowledge of Conquest a supposedly unknown band.

But I did like the deft way SJ Frost drew the characters and the music background. I hope in future books to find out what happens to Brandon and Julian. There was also an unfinished plot with Trish ...
