For the last four years, good girl Lane has regretted breaking up with Noel Falcon. She thought she was sensible when she told him his dreams of being a rock star would get him nowhere, but now that he's a rock god and her career is stagnant, she realizes just how wrong she was. When Noel hires the marketing company where Lane is an intern, she’s forced to see him again. If she wants to land her dream job as executive within the company, she has to win him over and secure his account. Too bad Noel is still pissed at her for breaking his heart.

When Lane’s company flies her to a Black Falcon concert to gain Noel’s attention, emotions run high the moment she sees him and realizes she’s far from over him. But Noel’s countless trysts with groupies and his cocky attitude make Lane believe he isn’t the same guy she once loved—now he seems to only want her body. Then after Lane discloses she needs him to procure a job, Noel proves he’s a changed man by forcing her to go on the road with him in order to get it.

After Lane reluctantly takes Noel up on his offer, she becomes willing to do whatever it takes to keep him satisfied, even if it means succumbing to his seductive ways. Lane soon finds deception is a dangerous game and she’s not the only one playing.

Let's put a disclaimer out there that I read this book immediately after finishing The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle.  Note to self:  DO NOT read 2 rockstar/rock band novels right after the other. While I did enjoy this book, I think that fact alone caused me to not appreciate this novel in its entirety. Quite honestly, both those books are running together while I'm writing this review. I do remember that I liked Noel better than Jake (TMS) but heroine wise I liked Lane better than Tru(TMS). I really enjoyed the antics of Noel's bandmates, especially Riff. Although I think that was a pretty dumb name to give such a hot sounding rocker, I can't tell you how excited I am that the
next book in the series is about Riff. Excuse me, I have to go swoon.

3.5 out of 5 stars
