BOOK SYNOPSIS –
It all started with a song.
Roxana Nights was late to another gig, thanks to her first love, and drummer. It’s been years since she left Jordan, but he won’t let her go. Then she hears a voice that pulls her under a spell and changes her whole world.
Trevor Malone just moved to Seattle with his band. Music is his only passion, until he lays eyes on Roxana. He’s never felt anything as strong as the pull to her. Now he needs to find a way to introduce her to his world.
There’s only one problem. A rival clan won’t rest until they've taken Trevor’s down. Unwilling to let old grudges die, they target Roxy. Trevor will do anything to keep her safe.
Roxy will find that the world she writes is closer to reality than she ever imagined. She’ll also learn that not all monsters are evil, though some are ruthless.
Will love stay strong when the past comes out? Can they survive the centuries old vendetta?
I absolutely love Brandy's stories, the story was amazingly written, so creative and unique I couldn't put it down one I started reading it. Right from the start I fell for Trevor and Roxy. I loved their music, their passion and their love, when they first met I loved their instant reactions to each other . I thought all the secondary characters were great except Jordan, I am so sick of cheating stories, Iv'e had enough of them but besides that he was just too whiney for me, and a total arse but later he's ok. I did love Joey (gramps..) I love how they all excepted Roxy and made her part of their clan. Great characters throughout, love Mikey what a great big brother. I hope he gets his HEA he deserves it and Jordan too I suppose ..lol.. Wow this story has love, hot as freakin hell sex (some rough sex too...yummy) , action, amazing characters both human and not and just amazing writing. Did I mention the hot as hell sex ...wow oh yeh and sexy TATS! Gotta love the tats....Amazing Story...4.5 stars...

She slipped past him, and onto the wings of the stage. Her gaze fell on Mr. Voice who was tall, dark and smokin’ hot.
Holy shit, I want to lick him.
Scuffed combat boots were laced up over black leather pants that clung to muscular thighs, and his black shirt molded to the most impressive set of abs she had ever seen. Roxy wanted to trace the ridges with her fingertips.
He turned, his voice dropping low as his eyes locked on hers. His words enveloped her. “… you’re the only one.”
Her heart paused a beat before slamming into her chest at a rapid pace. His full mouth lifted into a grin that spoke of confidence as he held her full attention. Entranced, she fell deep into his eyes and the world stopped.
Until a drumstick hit him in the head. He looked over his shoulder and shrugged sheepishly at his drummer before turning back to launch into the next verse.
Mikey gently shook her shoulder. “Hey, Rox, come on. We have to warm up.”
Her head bobbed in a nod at her brother, but she didn't look over. She muttered, “Yeah, give me a minute,” or longer.
As if he heard, Mr. Voice glanced over and winked at her before the next song started. “Blinded by beauty, falling at first sight, head over heels…” There was raw passion in his voice, and she couldn't help wishing he was singing about her.
