He is desperate just to be near her.
Temptation, betrayal, and lies on top of booze, tattoos, sex, laughs and love. While making friends and traveling the country Daisy must come to terms with what she wants in life. All while she learns to deal with the rough and rowdy of taking Shaft on Tour. It’s going to be a long hard ride.
***This book is not a normal romance. Things happen fast and with no*** regret. Rockers and all. There are M/F scenes of course but there is M/F/M, hints of M/F/F, possibly a little M/M and plenty of vibrator discussion.
Who doesn't love a bad boy rocker? Especially when he stands up for you against his own brother and is of course sex on a stick......or is that stick of sex?? Either way the man is hot!! And when you lived your life following a list of where you want to end up he can throw the whole world upside down. That's exactly what Grayson does to Daisy. Well she did need her world turned upside down. Her boyfriend, Grayson's brother Landon convinces Daisy that before she starts her job as a school teacher they should spend the summer on tour with his brother's band. That's where things fall apart. Landon spends most of his time with the band's manager Tad and leaves Daisy alone with Grayson. The fire between these two is combustible! Grayson is a sweetheart wrapped up in tattoos and music. Daisy is a nice girl who needs a little bad boy influence. Unfortunately for her not as bad as Landon turns out to be.
The story line was predictable at some points. The secret between Landon and Tad is telegraphed a few times before we learn it. It doesn't make the story any less and gets us on the side of Daisy and Grayson getting together. I also love the other members of Shaft and cannot wait to read their stories as well!!
How did this happen to me? Just months ago I was in a loving, committed relationship with a man who I believed adored me. Nothing was standing in our way of being married and having the white picket fence, babies and all the happiness I could stand. Now I sit here on the edge of a bed in a shitty tour bus crying into my hands while a dozen little white sticks lie all over the floor laughing at me proving that I am a total fuck up.
The diamond on my hand does nothing but make me angry as it glistens, wet with my tears. I’ve screwed everything up. I let myself believe for a while that I could have a happy ever after. I let myself think that I was worthy of something as precious as love. Instead, I have ruined at least four lives in the ashes of my monumental lapse of rational thinking.
I always think things through. Daisy Shayne never jumps without looking where she would land. I had a plan. I mean literally, I write the shit down and check it off as I complete it. I was nothing if not meticulous in my calculating of my life this far.
My parents planned nothing. I watched them constantly bailing water from the boat, borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and getting nowhere in life because of not having a plan. Well I had a plan damn it! Now as I look at my list all I want to do is jump from my boat and let myself drown. It would be so much easier than to face what is coming when those bus doors open and my life comes to an end. There is no hiding this. There is no fixing the situation. It’s going to destroy everyone involved, including myself in the process…
Wait! I am getting too far ahead of myself. You need for me to start from the beginning to get the full picture here. You need to know everything and then you will understand.
