Jessi Blade, sympathetic to her husband's bisexual needs, loves him enough to share him, but she never counted on Angel Garcia to test the threshold of her marriage.

Without warning, she finds herself falling in love with her husband's gay lover.
At the height of it all, their punk rock band catapults to stardom.
Their lives are marred by secrecy, deception and sacrifice. Feelings of betrayal, backlash from the sensationalistic media and threats of blackmail send them down a hard road filled with tough decisions.

I was given this book to read & review as part of the blog tour. At first, I thought it was just a typical rocker read. However, shortly after starting, I realized this wasn't a "typical" Rocker Romance book.
The characters were realistic in they way they interact with each other, and they way they responded to the situations that took place. I loved Jessi and the fact that she didn't take anyone's crap. She stands up for herself, and yet at the same point, doesn't force the issue to get what she wants & needs. Jessie lets the men in her life take charge.
Tommy Blade is a lead guitarist that loves to play, it is his passion. He isn't the typical rocker though. He graduated college with a double degree, played football, and has been with Jessi, his wife, since they were younger. He loves her and worships the ground she walks on, however he has a giant secret from the rest of the world.
Angel Garcia is the lead singer, and looking to fill the position of lead guitarist in his band, Immortal Angel. When he looks, he finds Tommy, and has an instant pull toward him. When he meets Tommy for the first time, there are sparks, but he doesn't push the issue since Tommy is married.
When things escalate between these two strong, forceful men, everything gets very complicated. When they decide to let things happen, the situation makes their bound stronger, however they have some rough seas ahead. When things become public, what will happen? How will everyone react? What will this mean for the band, Tommy, Jessi & Angel?
This is a different story but full of love. If you like rocker stories, you must read this amazing book!
The faces changed since the last time he was there, but the intention was still the same. It wasn’t a place to socialize or partake in camaraderie or drop in for a drink on your way home. It was meeting place for men interested in casual sex. The backroom served as a shanty for a quick encounter. You could stop in, get your rocks off and be on your way in half an hour. It was a smorgasbord of testosterone, a buffet of muscle and beefcake.
Men flocked around him as soon as he walked through the door. They always did. A guy once told him that it was the mixture of his rugged jaw and strong upper body, offset by the innocence of his big blue eyes that made him so attractive. The ladies always said it was his long blond hair and the guitar.
