Theo Decker might be the lead singer of Riven, but he hates being a rock star. The paparazzi, the endless tours, being recognized everywhere he goes—it all makes him squirm. The only thing he doesn’t hate is the music. Feeling an audience’s energy as they lose themselves in Riven’s music is a rush unlike anything else . . . until he meets Caleb Blake Whitman. Caleb is rough and damaged, yet his fingers on his guitar are pure poetry. And his hands on Theo? They’re all he can think about. But Caleb’s no groupie—and one night with him won’t be enough.

Just when Caleb is accepting his new life as a loner, Theo Decker slinks into it and turns his world upside-down. Theo’s sexy and brilliant and addictively vulnerable, and all Caleb wants is another hit. And another. That’s how he knows Theo’s trouble. Caleb can’t even handle performing these days. How the hell is he going to survive an affair with a tabloid superstar? But after Caleb sees the man behind the rock star, he begins to wonder if Theo might be his chance at a future he thought he’d lost forever.


I’m a sucker for rock stars and music and I really “felt” this. Theo and Caleb are so obviously perfect for one another and though there is some angst and separation – it’s mild (in comparison to some of the author’s other works).

I really loved the explanation/musical process we get to glimpse in addition to the look at addiction and recovery we see with Caleb.

Theo is a very lovable character and I was glad to see him find his own stride. The chemistry he has with Caleb is both heart warming and HOT.

This was amazing and I heartily recommend it! I hope someone awesome does the audio book! (Joel Leslie- ahem.)
