Let me start by saying that this book is steamy. Not just steamy but STEAMMMMY ... fog up your glasses, need a cold ass drink, steamy. Definitely read the authors warning, this book is not for the faint of heart. There is sex and lots of it, descriptive, dirty, nasty sex, drugs and plenty of punk rock!
Jade is a lost soul. Her moms a drunk, her life's been shit, she works at a pork shop. I mean come on .. horrible situation. Eva her best friend is the only "light" in her life. The only constant she has ever had. And as a BFF, always her wing man. They like to party together, drink together, hit the club together, seems like ever 23 year olds dream.
Hush is a bass playing, punk rock God. Beautiful tall mohawk, lean long body, erotica dripping from every pore. His persona is so bad ass, but underneath that, I sensed a heart of gold. He pushes Jade to go to the edges of her boundaries and break through.
This wasn't a typical rock star story wrapped around the rock star himself, Jade is in the fore front and I liked that a lot. To me, it was a modern-day rock inspired romance. Mohawks, fish net stockings, coke enema, booze straight from the bottle, mini skirts .. you get the idea! I felt immersed in the rock subculture and said oh hell, this shit's crazy.
Even though there are only 200 pages to this story, it was packed with great work. Reading the last 10 pages I still wasn't sure how it would end. I love books like that! The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat and full of wonder. I love feeling the rush of reading something I wouldn't normally grab off the shelf and seriously enjoying it. I found the characters back stories super interesting. Jade pulled at my heart-strings through the last page .. she's a super stellar goodness, IMO. I am so glad I was able to take this journey with her and watch her grow. I hope we see more of her in the future!! Great work, Jaden :)
