Finding my best friend and getting the hell out of California is top priority. Especially as the relationship with my rockstar stepbrother becomes more complicated with each passing day…
I’m on the tour bus partying!
The text from my best friend, Ivy, is one of her last. When weeks stretch with no further contact, I travel to L.A. to track down the band known as Rageon and find Ivy.
As the daughter of a groupie mom, and of a rock star father who fatally overdosed, I know the dangers of the world my friend disappeared into.
My ex-stepbrother, Gage, a musician who’s just come off tour invites me to crash at his place.
The last time I saw Gage in person, we were teens. He’s everywhere on social media, so I’m prepared for the tattoo-covered rocker who answers my knock. What I’m not expecting to find is the sweet, sensitive teen I grew up with is now an irresponsible, partying playboy who lives for his next fix.
As the search for Ivy narrows, my relationship with my rockstar stepbrother becomes more complicated. The tingling tug of attraction toward him is unexpected–and unacceptable. First, we’re practically siblings. Most importantly, I’ll never allow myself to fall for a musician, especially one with a drug addiction.
Gage teams up with me to find Ivy, introducing me into the right circles and guarding my secrets.
My search for Ivy takes me places I never wanted to go…
And my heart is an unwilling passenger on that dark ride.
Strung Out: A Needles and Pins Rock Star Romance is 90k words which is around 300 print pages. It may appear to be double that as the download contains 2 versions of the same book, allowing readers to choose their favorite reading style of 1 POV or 3 POV.
|This is my first time reading a book written by Lyrica Creed, and it was a good first impression. I liked it so much because it has a little bit of everything, it is written in 1st person (female character) but, if you prefer the 3rd person POV you can have that option too. The main plot is intense however it has a lot of sub plots and other characters making this book quite interesting, it goes around this Rock star style of life and this important girl from his past. At the beginning is a little slow, and the main characters are so different, however, as the story unfolds I found several similarities that closed the gap between those two, and then everything falls into place. It was shocking, funny, desperated, thoug but always romantic, and that’s why I recommend it, especially if you have a thing for moody rockstars|
