Genre : Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Josh Nicodemus is a rock star at the top of his career who is weary after a year-long road tour that has sucked his songwriting dry. Past his album deadline, he sneaks away to the remote island of Serenity after a chance encounter with Tony, a teenage boy at his concert who reminds Josh of his roots and the musician he longs to be. Looking for a temporary home, Josh walks into The Down Dog Café, owned by former child star in hiding Jordan Drake. Known as J.D. on the island, she’s all grown up now and living a quiet life. But when talented, music-crazed Tony turns out to be Jordan’s nephew, sparks fly between the hero and heroine. Jordan Drake is totally opposed to her nephew, Tony, following in his father’s musical footsteps because she’s afraid he’s too young to handle the success and he’ll make the same mistakes she made. The Miley Cyrus of her day, Jordan has worked hard over the past ten years to clean up her life and find her equilibrium. But when the front man for the band Nicodemus arrives in Serenity, all her hard-won peace is knocked for a loop and everything she values is threatened. She’s in for the fight of her life when Josh agrees to mentor Tony during his stay on the island.

Josh Nicodemus is a rock star
who is feeling jaded and struggling to write his new album, he’s under pressure from his managed Ben to toe the line and keep to his usual singing style however he wants a complete change.
A chance meeting with the son
of an old colleague has him running to Serenity a small coastal town struggling to survive the harsh financial climate.
Whilst Josh is re-assessing
his life he meets JD an ex child actress hiding from her old life and running the dog down café.
Firstly this is not your
normal rock star story, there is little on stage or fan action it mainly is the story of JD and Josh coming to terms with the choices they made in the past.
That said I
enjoyed the story and the sense of camaraderie between the villagers and how they protected there own.
hated Ben and it was obvious from the outset he was up to no good, I could have seriously shook Josh that he couldn’t see it.
I would have liked the
characters to have a little more depth and its obvious the locals all have they’re own story, but I’m hoping we might get to know them a little better when the next book in the series is released.
Mackenzie Lucas is a lover of story in any form. She's an avid reader of genre fiction, she writes contemporary and paranormal romance, and she listens to an eclectic mix of music that spans from pop/rock to country to gospel. She loves a good story whether it's an erotic short, a full-length romance novel, or the narrative slice-of-life found in country music. In any story, emotional integrity and authenticity are most important to her as well as a big dose of romping hot sexual tension. She enjoys smart-mouthed, sexy heroines, hunky alpha heroes who know how to take care of their women, and plot twists that surprise her, but most of all, she just wants to experience a satisfying emotional arc of a character falling in love and finding what he or she needs most in life. Mac is a small-town country girl with a world-traveler's soul. She grew up in the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania and she's lived in Dublin, Ireland, in Long Island for a summer, and now resides in the Washington, D.C. area. She obtained her undergraduate degree in English Literature from Dickinson College and received her M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University.
