Lots of people want to be Rock Stars, but the question is, can they handle it? Travis Dane has never wanted anything more than to be a Rock Star. He dreamed of being just like his father, Marcus. What the idol in his life never told him, is that the road to fame is paved with self destruction. Music, drugs, drinking, fighting and crazy stalkers all battle for his attention. Throw in an uncaring mother and Paparazzi following his every step is disaster waiting to happen.
Brittany Landers has never loved anyone like she did Trav. But his temper and drug use drove her into the arms of another man. Finally getting her life on track, striving for her law degree, can Aiden Bland take her mind off of Travis and what he’s going through? Or is he just Mr Wrong Right Now? The emotional rollercoaster of fame is never a Happily Ever After.
Tossing her one of my shirts, so she can clean up, I pull on a pair of boxers. A red thong happens to fall out of the shirt in her hand. Holding it up with one finger, she stares at me.
“Who’s is this? My ass isn’t this big.” Running a hand through my hair, it’s pointless, as it just falls right back into my eyes. Turning to look at the naked woman in my bed, she is beautiful, even when she’s angry. Maybe this is what I need, Britt’s a handful right now. She will only drag me down and I have to focus on music. Now that we have the Battle of the Bands to get ready for, and we have gigs almost every night, Death Polish is on its way. We will be the next Poisonous Love. I’m going to be just like my dad.
“I said whose is this? Are you screwing around on me Trav? What the hell? Some groupie skank I would assume,” Brittany pouts, snuggling back up under the sheets.
“Britt, you need to go. Bas and I have to go practice. I don’t have time for this shit. Get dressed and run back to mommy. Go get your nails done or something.”
“You know what Trav? You’re a loser. Fuck this. I’m done. You treat me like crap, and I don’t know why I put up with it. I can get a better lay anywhere else, from guys with more money than you. You will never amount to anything. You’re just a wannabe loser with big dreams that won’t come true. Sticking your dick in anything that comes along. Why can’t you get a real job? A real place, instead of this shit hole? Time to grow up and be a man. We aren’t in high school anymore.”
I’ve read quite a few rocker romance books but none that I feel were as realistic as this book. The drug abuse issues addressed in this book made me love it all the more. I was sucked in. Britt is just hard headed, stubborn and totally loves Travis but one heated argument tears it all apart. She now knows that she can’t be with him. Knows that he can’t give her what she needs. She decides to move on with her life, she meets another man and she decides to do the things that she’s always wanted to do. Aiden promises to be everything that Travis is not. But that’s not necessarily a good thing. Travis, sweet Travis, he’s grown up far too fast. His father was in and out of his life and he had a mother who never really showed him love. Travis’s biggest dream is to be just like his father with a destructively overwhelming desire to fill shoes that he was much too good to fill. His desire to be someone he looked up to, to be someone he’s not. Pushing Britt out of his life, he thought was for the best. He thought he could live his life without her. He thought he could handle the drugs, the alcohol, the fame. His destructiveness leads him down a path that he might not walk away from and all he can think about is getting the woman that he loves back. Walking this road with Travis and Britt was great. Being able to watch Travis go thru the healing process to get his life back on track. These may be words written on paper, but this is real life and I felt like I was right there with them. This book was over far too quick for me.

N Kuhn was raised in a small town, in the middle of nowhere. Small town life is something she cherishes. Having spent her afternoons outside or with a book, she grew up with a love of reading and writing. Her mother and grandmother fully encouraged this in her. Many years later, after a husband and children, she made a promise to her dying grandmother to fulfill her dream of being an author. Her grandmother lived to see Nicole's name in print. This was a turning moment for her. Driven by ambition and a promise made, she has since published her first trilogy (The Mohawk Series). N Kuhn has also signed on with WheelMan Press for Tucked In (The Hollywood Files) series as well as Nevermore Press for the much anticipated Buffalo Rocker Series, and Parlor Tricks.
