A STORY OF LIGHTS, CAMERA, FLASHES - FROM THE AUTHOR OF BEAUTIFUL BROKEN RULES
Ever James is a platinum-selling rock star, who has purposely made a reputation for herself as the industry’s favorite wild girl. She’s been photographed partying hard and dating the hottest actors. She’s been caught in the middle of numerous wardrobe malfunctions and frequents the covers of gossip magazines with scandalous rumors of rehab, affairs and pregnancies. Only some are true.
She sings their songs. She poses for their pictures. She wears their clothes.
Rhett Grayson has one of the most sought-after spots in the New York subway system to play his music. Travelers fill his guitar case with enough money to pay his bills and buy a round of drinks for his friends every week. He has his own apartment in Manhattan. Who cares if he can touch the walls with his arms stretched out wide? It’s his.
When Rhett is unexpectedly asked to join Ever’s band as lead guitarist, will Ever be able to cope with a new bandmate who’s as infuriating as he is tempting? Can she show him it’s okay to step out of his comfort zone while he teaches her a thing or two along the way about staying true to herself?
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝I was entirely out of control–of my own life.❞
When Ever James, the platinum album-selling rock star’s band sales dip, her label is out to reignite the spark that made Ever James a household name. It would be her assistant who lights the match by introducing subway musician Rhett Grayson into the mix. There is no denying the chemistry between Ever and Rhett, both on and off the stage. But it is the onstage chemistry that caught the label executives eyes, and before she was aware of what was happening, Ever was forced to share the stage and her band, with Grayson.
Rhett Grayson may have his own connections in the music industry, but he’s insistent on making it on his own. He hones his talent by busking in the subway and singing in a bar. When offered a chance of a lifetime, he knows singing in James’ band is an opportunity he can’t turn down. But it is the chemistry the two share off stage that he wants to explore.
❝… I know you’re the loneliest person I’ve ever met swimming in a sea of people.❞
Rhett is charming, a little bit alpha, and a whole lot sexy! He’s perfect for Ever because he challenges her to find her strength and stand up for herself in an industry where she’s a commodity, not a person. There were some great secondary characters in this book, hopefully, we will get more of their story!
I’m glad Kimberly Lauren is publishing books again! Lauren’s writing is fluid and her characters are like friends. If you’ve not read this author, I would also recommend her Broken series. I loved it!
