Mae Williams is an expert at her job. At least she thought she was until she became the interim band manager for BAD BEAT – the heavy metal group that has been making headlines across America for the past eleven years. But an outdoor venue and a summer storm create a crisis she can’t control – and one over-confident lead guitarist seems set on turning her world upside down.
Ian McCafferty has worked hard to become the best. Money doesn’t matter when there’s fans to please and life to enjoy. Then one crazy concert changes everything. It turns out that this particular bad boy is a sucker for a damsel in distress. And when the lights go out, he’s got the boss lady in his arms and all the time in the world to make her his own.
But what happens when the storm blows over? Has anything truly changed? The fans are still there, and there still is the concert of a lifetime to perform. But for the king of power and flash a performance without electrical power, pyrotechnics and not even a single light means he’s going to have to change everything he’s used to define himself – including how he wins a lady’s heart.
This is the first story of a bad boy billionaire romance series .
From the description of the story, I honestly expected it to be much longer. There was a lot promised in the blurb that the story mostly delivered on, but I would have preferred a longer treatment of the subject. I enjoyed the character of Mae, from whose point of view the story is told, but I think that the story would have been richer if the other characters would have been allowed to be more fully developed. Instead, the other characters, including the hero of the story, Ian, were left as almost caricatures rather than fleshed-out characters. The overall plot of the story is quite entertaining but there was a lot going on in the action than could best be supported with the few pages that we are given. From the minimal characterization present in the case of Mae, I would be very interested in reading more from this author and seeing what she could do with even a novella-length work.
