Music is drummer Tim Chalmers’s great escape and the one thing that’s never let him down. But his band Spiral’s meteoric rise to fame has made it difficult for him to maintain a low profile. Unwanted press pesters him after a public breakup with a volatile ex-girlfriend who loves the limelight as much as he loathes it. Tim’s main goal is to avoid confrontation. However, when a handsome stranger in a dive bar turns out to be someone he might know, everything changes.
Carter Hamilton-Temple might be a successful financial consultant with more brains, sophistication, and charm than most, but he always falls for the wrong guys: closet cases or men with issues. He can’t fight his attraction to tattooed rock star Tim, but can he trust his own judgment? When the thrill of danger combined with a fierce physical connection proves too strong for either man to resist, a quiet liaison away from the public eye and curious friends seems like a safe bet. But some secrets are hard to keep. When rumors threaten to rock his world, Tim realizes it’s time to confront his fear with his own kind of honesty.

Tim and Carter were brilliant. Their story was so well told. Lane Hayes did a wonderful job creating two characters that are easy to connect with. Tim’s personal life was such a mess. Between his crazy ex and the family drama, it made me tired. His character was very well developed and all of his issues weren’t overdone. Nothing felt like drama for drama sake. My heart hurt for him and the pain he went through when he was younger. Carter was very realistic to me. I understood him and his feelings. His fears and insecurities made sense with the things that happened to him in his past relationship wise. I really enjoyed seeing the relationship between these two develop and grow. I was rooting for them to make it.
