Desperate times call for daring measures.
At least that’s what I tell myself for packing up and hitting the road with America’s newest and most popular rock band, The Oppressors. The lanky tattooed men are suspicious. Before I stepped on the bus with them, they’ve always made me nervous.
Something’s not adding up, though. There are strange events I’m noticing around them.
- The hazy, vacant stare of the woman in their dressing room.
- And the blood on her shirt.
- The beat less sound of Liam’s heart when I lay my head on his chest.
I don’t think it’s safe to be close with the band, and most certainly not fall in love with one. So why do they make me feel like I’m a part of them? Their close-knitted trio.
What happens when I figure out what I’m dying to know?
This is a dual POV steamy vampire romance standalone that centers around bonds of love and friendship. 18+ dark, explicit sexual scenes, and lots of blood.
My ARC Review:
This was my first read by Michelle, I was intrigued by the concept of the vampires hiding behind their rockstar alias! This is a standalone read with some cross over to other books, easily read on its own but I did feel like I was missing out on some background.
Jayne is a PA for a rap artist and has the the band The Oppressors before, the three boys were always a little playful with her, but she was uncomfortable and fearful around them, Liam in particular brought out a mixture of emotions in her! When the rap artist disappears the band step up and get Jayne to be their own PA, which means travelling on the tour bus with them.
Liam is obsessed with Jayne, he is fighting his instincts to show her what he is against keeping her safe. The other two band members, Pete and Steve, are also attracted to Jayne but in a different way. They have a bad connection with the vampire that sired them and they have put her to sleep in a way of hopefully finding a way to get rid of her once and for all…
Lots of twists and turns in this as you learn the backstory to the band and to Jayne. Jayne appears quite a frightened and weak character, but she is anything but, she takes the band in hand and tries her best to manage and organise them, even when she finds out just what they are. Her feelings for Liam creeps her out, she can’t understand her depth of emotion for someone she doesn’t know and who scares her!
I enjoyed this, the twists in the plot and the backstory, the connection between Jayne and all the band, with her and Liam it gets a bit steamy. I would definitely read more from Michelle. A good vampire read, well worth it.
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where possums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.
