I’ve always had a love for music. Maybe it’s because music is ingrained in my family roots. My grandfather played multiple instruments (guitar, banjo, piano, flute, clarinet, harmonica, and horn), and my brother has been a drummer in various rock bands since he was seventeen.
I dabbled briefly with bass guitar in high school (I had my own Rickenbacker bass and amp), and while it was fun for a time, I never had the drive to pursue it. Unlike writing, I didn’t feel the need to live and breathe it, the way I do with creating stories. I almost wish I did. I admire anyone with musical talent, and am just a little envious of that ability.
As a teen, I dreamed up plenty of stories with guys in rock bands and, even today, I’m a sucker for a good rock romance. That’s why when London Casey contacted me about showcasing her New Adult contemporary rockstar romance series, The Boys of DownCrash, I jumped at the chance to splash it on my blog.
Book One in the series is available now with Book Two scheduled to release soon. London will be returning in June to share more about that, but for now, check out the details of Book One, THE STRONGER, SAFER KIND. I love the cover!
All Scarlett wanted to do was thank the sexy stranger who helped her push away a drunk, grabby college boy at a bar. When that stranger identifies himself as Tripp and then takes the stage as the lead singer and guitarist for rock band, DownCrash, everything in Scarlett’s life begins to change.
Her best friend, Andy, confesses his love for her and leaves her with what should be an easy decision to make… yet each time she looks in Andy’s eyes, she can’t help but face her secret, nightmarish past.
The only thing that makes Scarlett feel better is Tripp… but Tripp isn’t just a bad boy rockstar, he’s hurt. He’s in pain. He tries to hide his pain in a bottle, but Scarlett believes that, perhaps, their secrets can help each other.
Friendship and love is suddenly put to the test, and Scarlett is torn… Will she choose an easy, comfortable, happy life or a life clouded with mixed signals, raw emotion, and intense romance?
