Adolescents are attracted to tragic heroes. That's why rock stars dress like homeless people. Adolescence is a fall. It's when every child becomes an orphan. - Heather O'Neill
This is the first book by Sarah Dosher I have read, and it will not be my last. Which is sort of odd, as this isn’t usually a book I would have picked up on my own. The whole “angsty rock star” thing has just never done it for me. However, to say that Ms. Dosher pleasantly surprised me with her handling of the storyline is a vast understatement. It grabbed me from the first and didn’t let go until the last page.
This is very much a ‘different’ sort of rock-n-roll story. Eli Blue Savage grew up in a modern day fairy tale. The daughter of a rock superstar, Eli lived backstage at rock concerts, mostly bored out of her brain, but thrilled to be with her father, a famous “Rock God” guitarist. With a mother who rocks the “evil, psychotic” stereotype, Eli finds herself immersed in the backstage lifestyle with a father who adores her beyond all reason. That is, until her beloved father succumbs to a drug overdose leaving Eli to find his body. One wonders, of course, how a loving father could put his daughter into a position where this could happen – but that whole “rock god lifestyle” was apparently too much for Savage to resist, and Eli found herself alone.
Eli still manages to hold her life together, even after her devastating loss. She grows up solid and drug free, goes to college, and now she is taking over her father’s music management company, Savage Man. The problem is, her mother. Her drug and alcohol addicted, vicious, psychotic mother who will do anything to bring Eli down and take back the company.Read more ›
Eli is a young lady who has grown up in the music industry thanks to her famous dad rocker. Deacon is a guitarist wanting to be just like Eli's dad. Their paths cross and it is seriously like love at first sight. Sickeningly sweet and something fairy tales are made of. Shaw is Eli's best friend / ex boyfriend who wants her back. Even though this sounds like a love triangle, it really isn't. There's no cheating, no question of who she wants to be with, and no picking sides.
What I love...
* The different point of views. Some chapters were from Deacons POV and some were form Eli's. I love knowing what's inside the characters heads and this was a perfect example of how its done correctly without repeating scenes or simply adding words to buff the story out.
* Shaw's love for Eli. It's undeniably clear that he would do anything for that girl. His methods may be not to everyone's tastes but the passion and devotion behind his actions explains all there is to know. It doesn't hurt that he is so very hot and seriously, its enough to make anyone's panties melt! What I wouldn't do for that man!
* Eli. Considering her upbringing and the things she's been through, its a wonder she's anything near normal. I love her attitude and her spunk. Its such a refreshing change to have a main character so different from the normal damsel in distress / broke / virgin / college student. Eli is none of the above. This makes me happy!
* Deacon - I love his no nonsense attitude. He knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go after it.Read more ›
