My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
I never thought I would say it but: Already. I have a new favorite of The Rock Gods series.
For the longest time, I have been intrigued and curious of the relationship between Jared and Tony. They were always at the periphery and seemed mysterious in their ways. No one could really claim they were gay, for they took to tandem the women who wanted to join in the rock life. When news came out that they were going to have their own book out, I don't think anyone who follows this series did not jump with joy. We all wanted them. And yes, we got them and their story is precious.
The story is told from shifting points of views but it never made the read difficult to follow. It actually made it more interesting and it gave this reader a deeper understanding of who the characters really were. We knew their thoughts, their feelings, their troubles and their needs.
The story also gives us a bit of the background of when these two men were still young. We got to catch glimpses of what they went through in life before they became a part of the Ivory Tower Band. With these back stories, we are able to finally get the full picture of who they really are. Not the rock stars. Not the men who had money. They were men who lived.
It's impossible to continue without revealing spoilers. What I will do is stop right here and just say: this is an awesome read and very fast paced. I think this is the best of the series so far. Highly recommended.

“I really want to kiss you, T. Please,” Jared whispered his plea. “I need to know if it's real.”
“If what is real?” Tony asked.
“This. Us. All of it,” Jared whispered. “I need to know if what I'm feeling is the real deal...if maybe you're feeling it, too.”
Tony struggled again and Jared put more of his weight on top of Tony, even sliding one of his legs between Tony's thighs. Jared brushed their mouths together again and licked at Tony's slightly parted lips. Jared felt the resistance leave Tony's body and took that as a positive sign. He slanted his head and went in for the kiss he'd longed for since their last night with Bree, and just as his eyelids closed in euphoria, Tony bit down hard into the plump flesh of Jared's bottom lip. Pain shot through Jared and he quickly pulled back.
“What the hell?” Jared protested and wiped at the tiny spot of blood on his lip.
“If you fucking start this, I'm not stopping,” Tony hissed. “So, if you're gonna run away again like a scared little girl, you might as well leave right now.”
