ABOUT THE BOOK:
Turning forty, for research technician Lannie Marvin, is rough. It’s the day she discovers her husband is leaving her. At work, a crazed mouse brutally bites her. Lannie snaps. She heads off to chase the object of her newest crush, drummer of a heavy metal band—and an old dream of composing music.
Tristan Allard, said drummer, holds a benefit concert every year in memory of his wife. The musician is beginning to doubt his ability to write music without her inspiration. Plus, he’s damn lonely. So when a sexually charged woman literally plows into him at the backstage reception, Tristan is ready to learn more about her—and her long-buried interest in musical composition.
This new chance at life and love has them both euphoric, but reality bites back. Tristan is headed back to the UK to audition his latest album. And Lannie soon learns an elevated libido isn’t the only side-effect of that experimental drug.
It’s a musician’s worst nightmare—the drug Lannie was exposed to have rendered the mice deaf.
From Maia Silverdagger, Silverdagger Book Tours, 5 stars:
“Powerfully emotional with plenty of ups and downs, I was completely enraptured and found myself quite unable to put this book down!”
From Sarah Ann (Amazon), 5 stars:
“I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an amazing story of love and romance, yes, but also of growth and finding yourself and who you were truly meant to be!”
From B (Amazon), 5 stars:
“The character development was so good in this book and had me feeling so many emotions. I laughed, felt a little sad, held my breath and cheered…”
I caught my brother watching me in the rearview mirror. He was wearing an impish grin. “For a while there,” he said, “we were afraid your mother might run off with one of the roadies.”
The next words popped out of my mouth before my brain had a chance to stop them.
“To hell with the roadies. If I run off, it will definitely be with the yummy drummer.”
