Why Do We Like This Book?

Marissa Recommends
After meeting Dex in the previous books, I wasn’t sure there was a woman who could handle him for more than one night. She would have to be strong and be able to call him out when he was being an ass. And Dex lives up to his history more than once, fighting demons but also being the rock for his band mates when needed. Raine has a tortured past as well, but I loved seeing them learn to heal each other while dealing with their own demons. Plus, Zoey writes some very hot bedroom scenes to help tie the story together.

Favorite Quotes

“If we hold back, if we don’t give into our longings, don’t give in to allowing ourselves to be hurt, we will never have anything we want in this lifetime.  If you run away from this before it’s even had a chance to being, you will regret it.”
They say that our eyes are windows into our souls and hers were wide open, ready, wanting and willing to surrender to me. Normally I’d shrug it off, I’ve seen the look before, but it was almost as if our two souls were sliding into one. Two halves becoming whole for the first time in my life.

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

Dex Harris, Drummer for America's Hottest Alternative Rock Band 69 Bottles, has never gone looking for love—for good reason. After an ill-fated night after a tour stop in Phoenix, his wicked demons resurface. Is he strong enough to resist falling back into the black hole that was once his life or will he let addiction consume him?

Raine Montgomery has worked for Bold International, Inc since she moved to California at eighteen. She’s fought her way into the executive offices as an assistant to CEO Cami Michaels, but being an assistant isn't what she imagines doing for the rest of her life—so when Cami sends her to assist with the 69 Bottles tour, she jumps at the opportunity.

There’s only one kink in that plan—and his name is Dex Harris.

Raine doesn’t expect to be on the radar of the sexy manwhore drummer, let alone the center of his sights. Shattered from a long-term relationship with a cheater, Raine is determined to make Dex prove himself.

Will Dex toss away his one-night stands in favor of sleeping every night with only one woman—or is Raine simply his latest conquest?

A Rock Band. A Tour Bus. One Wild Ride....

About The Author
My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
