New release by Linda Kage
Here’s the same old “girl posing as a boy” story but with a rock-n-roll twist.
Remy Curran dreams of one day being in a band, except the group she wants to join refuses to hire a girl drummer. So, she auditions as a guy...and makes the cut.
Becoming “Sticks,” a member of Non-Castrato, isn’t quite what she dreamed it would be, though. She spends most of her time keeping up the subterfuge and learning how to walk, talk, act, and drink like a man.
But what’s even harder to deal with is acting oblivious when the band’s heartthrob lead singer, Asher Hart, treats her like one of the guys and not a woman. She never imagined he’d be so much more than a pretty face with a nice voice. But he’s better than perfect. He’s perfect for her.
When love and lies combine, Remy must keep up the act or lose everything. But who knew lying to reach one dream could prevent you from attaining an even bigger dream?
Six Reasons to Love Asher
1 – His voice.
Remy calls it panty-dropping, but I like how he loves to sing songs that challenge his vocal chords and make him put his all into it. I think it’s adorable that he also sings to himself when he’s doing menial tasks like cleaning.
2 – His looks to back that voice up!
But seriously, you gotta love his soft hair. And those teasing green eyes. For a skinny rocker dude, I hear he’s got a decent chest under his shirt too!
3 – His dedication to the band.
He may be more the laid-back, forgetful, unorganized type, but he takes cares of his boys. He sets up all the gigs, makes sure they get paid, he writes all the original songs and music for those songs. He reminds them when and where they need to be to play next, and he does all that without any complaints!
4 – His teasing, flirting ways!
If he knows you’re a good sport and can take a joke, he’ll harass you in the friendliest way possible. I adore the way he interacts with all the other bartenders of the Forbidden Nightclub.
5 - He has a pet squirrel.
Seriously, how could you not like a guy who gets a pet squirrel?! And then his reason for having it, despite how much he really can’t touch it or interact with it like a normal pet, just melts your heart. How did he word that again? Ahh....here’s that quote:
Asher shook his head. “Just because I can’t touch him doesn’t mean he still can’t be taken care of and loved,” he argued. “I swear, those are the souls who need a little TLC the most.”
6 – He drives a motorcycle.
Need I say more?
