When Delia (Lia) Norman meets Rock Royalty Colter (Colt) Slade unexpectedly after her boyfriend of 4 years breaks up with her, sparks fly immediately. Lia's ex always told her she was dull and boring, she was no fun at all, and he was right. Colt tells Lia to do something exciting - be spontaneous. So she moves out of her comfort zone and goes on tour with the most famous rock group in the world 'Slayed'.
How will Lia deal with being pushed out of her comfortable life and into a world of chaos, paparazzi, screaming 'evil minion' fans and most of all the idea that maybe there is love just around the corner?
I jump again as I hear someone banging loudly on my door. I stand up carrying the bottle of vodka trying really hard not to spill the precious beverage and walk toward the door. I'm still sobbing as I open it. The vision before me makes my heart thud. I open and close my eyes a few times to try and get them to focus. I don't know whether it's from crying or the copious amounts of alcohol, but I just can't see properly. What I can see is a delicious looking man wearing black boxer briefs and a black vest. He's ridiculously muscular, with tattoos up and down his arms. He has a light stubble on his jaw and his hair's a dishevelled mess of brown and blond highlights.
Don't you hate when that happens? You look crap and see someone hot? :P lol. Colt (Colter Slade) is adorable. He is kinda uneasy about the whole crying thing and only agrees to stay with Lia if she stops. He even stays with her until she falls asleep! Aww...
At first, Lia feels completely out of place and overwhelmed by everything. She decides she is definitely not a Slayette and decides to leave without telling Colt. Just as she starts leaving, the poor girl is bombarded by angry crazy female fans that saw her with Colt. Poor thing. But Colt to the rescue! He gets her back to safety and takes care of her. The sweet guy actually got upset that she was leaving without saying goodbye! As the night progresses, the two of them share their first kiss:
"What are you asking me, Lia?" He smirks widely.
"Just kiss me, already," I reply and in an instant his soft lips are on mine. A passion ignites within me and I wrap my arms around his neck while his entire body pushes against mine. Even though I'm drunk out of my mind, I'm still really sure that this is the best kiss I've ever had. I let out a slight moan and his tongue enters my mouth. His tongue is warm as it caresses mine softly but with urgenecy. His hand moves on to the back of my head and he holds me to him forcefully. I move my hand down to his strong bicep and he takes it holding it up above my head.
God this is so hot!
Colt manages to convince Lia to come on tour with the band and the Slayettes. She agrees after she realises how much she likes her new self. And to be honest, she is pretty freaking awesome. She stands up for herself and takes control. Her family are far from pleased. Lia's father, in particular, tries to convince her to come home and get back together with Joseph. She bluntly refuses. Colt is extremely protective of Lia and needs her close to him when he performs aw. But despite his strong persona, Colt does have a fragile side and has suffered heartbreak. It makes things harder for him and Lia. He can't say I love you. But he has some amazing people around him. I love the antics that the group gets up while on tour. The relationships of the band members and their partners is funny and adorable.
Now we can't forget the hot scenes in this story and there are some great ones! ;) Like this one:
"Colt, there's people in the room," I whisper breathless as his finger moves slowly on my clit.
"I guess you'd better be quiet then," he whispers as he presses firmer on me.
I can't believe he's doing this with people in the room. I gasp as he moves on me faster making me lose track of my thoughts while I get caught up in the pleasure. My hips start to move involuntarily as he grinds into me with his hand and cock. The pressure's building up and I want to moan so badly, but I can't risk people hearing me. He moves his knee in between my legs making me part them.
Yep, I'm stoping there 'cos I'm mean :P No, not really. I just want you to read the book! :) There are a few minor bumps along the road but for the most part, Colt and Lia overcome them. However, a family scare sends Lia back home and Colt is concerned she won't come back. When she rejoins the group, she finds Colt in, well... a compromising position. It pushes Lia over the edge and she leaves. With nowhere to go, she turns to Joseph. Hmm... yeah you are all thinking WHAT!!! But we learn why Joseph broke up with Lia and he totally redeems himself. Totally love him after that! <3 And then there is Danny. What a sweetheart! He is utterly adorable. I love how he and Joseph take care of Lia. And then I'm absolutely annoyed with Colt. I'm like seriously Colt, how could you, you ass!!!! I may have screamed at the book :P lol. It is heartbreaking seeing Lia take it so hard. But after the pain and lots of tears, Colt and Lia start talking. Or at least Colt does. The phone call conversations had me sobbing:
"Can I call you again? Same time tomorrow? If you don't hang up I know it's okay," he says and I can't bring myself to hang up. I hear him exhale. "Thank God, I really didn't want you to hang up, but I'm not ready to hang up now. Can I stay on the phone until I hear you fall asleep?" he pauses and it sounds like he's holding his breath. I don't hang up and bite my bottom lip. "Phew okay, so I'm just getting into bed now and I'm going to stop talking so I can hear you breathing and I won't hang up until I think you're asleep. Goodnight baby," he says and I hear him rustling around a bit and then there's nothing except for both of our breathing on the end of the line.
Aww... <3 He knows he's made a big mistake and tries to make things right again. Never pushing too much but just wanting to hear something from her. The two of them fight for each other and their relationship. They finally reach this wonderful place. The ending, aw, so sweet and awesome until... Omgosh!!! A cliffhanger!!! I mean after everything the two go through, that has to happen?!?! I won't say what 'cos you have to be as shocked as I was. But this was me:
