What would you do if you'd walked in on a sweaty, sexy, sculpted, tattooed Rock God unabashedly having sex doggie style with his latest hookup? Well ..Show More »good girl Meg, being a shy and reserved pre-Med 21 year old Virgin, just stood there transfixed, aroused and inquisitively gawked at them but when she gasped then was spotted she went beet red, made her apologies and quickly left. Really embarrassed Meg tried desperately to just melt away in amongst the crowd of people at the Hollywood Hills Mansion but she was totally unaware that she'd just unwittingly interrupted and caught the eye of none other than the arrogant man-whore..... Lead Singer/Songwriter for her favorite Rock Band Sinful Serenade, the cocky and confident Miles Webb.
It wasn't long before Miles came looking for her, he seemed to be intrigued and refreshed at her naivety and cuteness and the sexual chemistry and obvious attraction between them couldn't be denied. Unfortunately (or fortunately) her best friend Kara has had too much to drink and so Miles makes his move by offering to take Meg home..... and he also flirts non-stop and kindly offers to help her out with her virginity too. They agree to be friends, then later fk buddies too and Meg only agrees on the condition that there's "Total honesty, no secrets, no lies and no deception at all" and Miles has conditions of his own "If Meg develops feelings for him it's over" because he states "You're not going to be my confidant or my shoulder to cry on" - he doesn't believe in love and he doesn't do relationships either.
And yet these two lovers agree to be monogamous, keep back secrets, break ALL their pre-planned conditions and rules, have lots of romantic passionate and sexy times and hopelessly fall in love. But it's not without its rocky times too especially when Meg's feelings deepen and she wants Miles to open up, come out from behind his bravado of a no strings Rocker stereotype and face the demons he's buried deep. Because they've both got sad pasts, regrets and a feeling of blame that still haunt them and Meg believes they could fix each other if only Miles would take the chance..... but sadly that belief is shattered when she overhears something shocking.
These two were warm and wonderful characters and there was an ease and smoothness to their relationship which was fun and was filled with lots of witty banter, seductive flirting and supportive actions. It wasn't drama filled or action packed - nor was Miles the usual Rocker type because he wasn't seen with other women nor was he the dark and moody 'sex, drugs and rock n roll' type. Instead, his character was light, friendly, flirty, sexy, vulnerable, thoughtful, attentive and loving like a real boyfriend.... even if he never planned to be. A good selection of secondary characters, including the rest of the Band, and I hope we get to hear their Yellow Brick Road to HEA's soon. Told from Meg's POV and I love Tatiana Sokolov's narration because she's one of only a handful of female narrators who always very successfully delivers on sexy Hero's voices and she captures the feel of the stories and the essence of the characters.
Worth a credit? This was such a compelling, sweet and enjoyable listen which was totally worth the credit. My first, but definitely not my last listen from this talented Author.
