This book is completely different to her last series and was amazing!! This is all about Jagger (Jag) Steele, the Rock God, lead singer of Pandemic Sorrow. He is living the life of a 'typical' rick star, lots of women and lots of drugs!
He has had a lot to deal with in his life, a rubbish Dad, losing his Mum and then his girlfriend breaking up with him just as his band takes off.
He is thrown into fame and to help him get through it all he then becomes an addict to drugs. Some of the scenes were pretty difficult to read, this really covers a tough subject and I think Stevie covers it well.
Jag then meets Roxy, a completely different kind of girl than what he is used to. She basically tells him she hates him and does everything she can to show him what she thinks of him! She doesn't throw herself at him like her sister or any of the other millions of female fans he has.
Both Roxy and Jagger have had a tough life, are both broken in different ways but find themselves attracted to each other, no matter how much they both try not to be.
There are a few incidents that happen during the book, such as band mates' feuds, a suspected love child as well as a cameo of a famous guy! But I won't spoil it so you'll just have to read it to find out! LOL
Stevie has covered everything in this book and it had me hooked from start to finish. This covered some real hard issues, covered many emotions while reading it and had a great ending!
Loved this and I highly recommend it!!
I had this on my tbr for quite some time and was a little afraid to read it. I tend to shy away from these types of books as they hit a raw neve and drag emotions from me that I'd rather not relive, having personally known drug addicts and lost friends (one recently). I didn't want to find myself immersed in a book that trivialised drug use with the pretense of addiction. It didn't....it SO didn't and for that I am extremely grateful. This book is RAW, extremely raw. I guess the phrase "getting under your skin" would be an apt description of this book. It is profoundly powerful and mesmerising all at the same time!
This book is about Jag, the lead in Pandemic Sorrow's band, the other characters in this book are mostly secondary even taking into account how they weave in and out of the book. This is all Jag, with a little of Jagger peeking out behind his facade now and again. He's a man continually spiralling out of control, barely functioning, existing but not entirely living. He's selfish, arrogant, pig headed and sticks his fingers up to the world. Numb and unfeeling through choice, he uses the crutch of drugs to navigate his way through his misery. Even the lure of Roxy (his dream) and his son are no competition for the high that he craves in order not to feel anything. "Going over all that s*** was too damn hard. It made me feel, and I couldn't stand feeling" Jag in a nutshell! He hates his fame and craves his anonymity. Jag Steele makes a contradiction of the saying when you hit rock bottom, the only way is up. Well, he hits spectacularly then digs himself deeper. He doesn't deal with the things that have made him numb and is in utter denial about his addiction, trying to play it off.Read more ›
Jagger's band becomes big, the only girl he's had strong feelings for can't hack the lifestyle he has been drawn into. Jag struggles to keep up with the pace of life and starts to rely on drink, drugs and copious amounts of sex to get through. Stardom comes at a huge cost, relationships are near on impossible and selfishness grows. Thrown into rehab Jag tries to confront his demons, he meets a girl upon his release that strikes him as a challenge but with all the trauma Roxy has been through she doesn't need an addict chasing her. Will Jag be able to get the only girl that doesn't want him to see that there is more to him than meets the eye?
I loved this book, everything about the characters came across as completely believable. I loved the tortured Jagger and Roxy. I'm not sure if this is a series but I'd love to read the stories of the rest of the band. A brilliant read that I will definitely pick up again in the future.
