Ray stared at the tabloid website headline. Carl was the no good band manager the record label had sent. Ray was accused of being drunk and attacking fellow band member - the drummer Kevin who had actually been the one drunk and the rest of the band- twisted wishes- attested to it. Carl knew kevin had been drinking on tour ray had even went to carl about it and nothing had been done. The band needed the tour for the record label dangled in front of them. Ray had put the strange little band together -Dom his best friend from HS , Mish the red haired bass playing crooner. Abd Kevin the kid from YouTube . Ray had brought them all together and they had done the impossible and had a hit.

Ray and Xavier are very attracted to each other and have hot chemistry but Xavier makes it clear he’s not a relationship type of person so they start out as casual lovers . the manager and record labels gives Xavier and ray a rough time about their relationship but Ray and Xavier still continue being lovers.
I enjoyed this book considering I don’t read male/male or female/female books. But i accidentally chose this one I apparently seen Rock star and that's all it took oh well. But here is what I thought. I liked the plot but felt this dragged at times. I skipped over the sex parts and I am not really into whips when it comes to the BDSM part so I didn't miss everything. I had never heard of aromance so that was something new and interesting. I did like the actual build up for Ray and Xavier to build a friendship before the sensual part. I really liked how protective Xavier was of Ray. I loved Ray’s commitment to the band. I also liked how ray and the band interacted with each other including ray and Xavier. I liked Mish and Dom also. So as long as you knew what this entails I liked the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
