Rock star Alec Daniels has it all. Love, fame, money… But being in the limelight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and after one bad choice comes back to haunt him he is left picking up the pieces of his carefully constructed life. Now he faces the toughest decision of his life.

Deal with his mistake like a man, or dive back into the dark hole of depression, drugs, and denial that have been his comfort for so long.

One wrong move could destroy everything. His girlfriend, his family, and his future.


Review: Another wonderful book by a great author. I knew she had to tease us with another book after this one. She said it would be the last but thank god she decided to write another one. I just want to know how she comes up with the songs in her books? Maybe she should be a song writer. I know that she has a busy schedule and she has a lot to do.

I feel like I really got to know Alec more in this book. I was wanting everything to work out for him and his brother. I know they have had a hard life. I love reading books where family stick together no matter what they have done to each other. I knew that Nat had a secret and I just didn’t want to get my hopes up about it. I won’t give anything away. I would love to scream it from the rooftops but I won’t.

This book was really emotional to me. I couldn’t believe what Alec was doing to Nat. I was on the edge of my seat and chewing my nails just wondering how it would all come out. I really cried while I was reading this one. I would have to stop and read something else so that I could calm down enough to read the rest. You know that Alec doesn’t want to lose what he has but how can he let go of the past.

Demetri seems to help out a lot and Alyssa is really there for Nat. So I started liking Demetri a little bit more than I did. That doesn’t make me change my mind over what team I’m on. This book has a great ending and left me on a high.

I will now be going crazy until I get to read another book by Rachel. I felt really privileged to get an ARC copy of this book before it came out.

The only thing I will say is that you really need to read this book. It had me laughing and crying. I will also say that I picked the right guy for me. Team Alec!
