Review: This story is part of a series and is best read in order. Goldie (Billy) and Jett (Jethro) have been settled in L.A. for the past three years. But, things aren’t rosy, as Goldie’s isolation keeps him home. Jett is plastered across the tabloids in cozy intimate pictures with women and rumors abound about Jett’s fidelity. Goldie fears he’s losing Jett and is scared to ask for what he really wants, and Jett misses his band mates and New York. When Cole turns up on their doorstep claiming to be Jett’s son, Goldie snatches at the chance for family, but Cole has a huge crush on Goldie and anger for Jett that begins to drive a wedge between Jett and Goldie. Can Goldie’s and Jett’s love stand up to the unspoken words between them? Or will they finally open their hearts and talk about what they truly want?
Okay, so I didn’t read the first book, so at first I fumbled about a bit as to the characters. So advice to all, read the first book. Although, I got a feel for the characters in the end, I ended up with a solid image of Johnny Rotten with black hair for Jett (I couldn’t help it). Coming into this story with no background made me wonder why Goldie was with Jett. But, as I got deeper into the book, you can see why they both love each other. but the problem they are both having is a lack of communication and it takes Cole coming onto the scene to shake them both up and begin to talk.
I really enjoyed this story, even if I was a bit wary at first. Jett became my favorite character. Even though he was clueless about what Goldie wanted. But, because he stepped up to the mark not just for Goldie, but for Cole as well, he shone. Goldie had insecurities, but didn’t want to risk rocking the boat, so he backed himself into a world of loneliness. Until Cole comes along and Goldie has to do damage control. This is a surprising book that shows how Goldie grows. Even from the first page to last, you can see how he begins to grow and change while still fumbling to find the man he wants to be. The sex is hot and passionate, and the blood play added a scorching level, (I normally don’t like blood play, but this was primal and passionate).
Cole brings a new level to Goldie and Jett’s lives, but don’t expect it to be a wonderful reunion between father and son. Hell, they both want to punch the other at times, and I have to admit that Cole was very creepy with his crush on Goldie. Jett was a lot more patient than I would have been. The ending in this book was beautiful and hopefully we will see future stories for this pop/punk star couple.
I will recommend this to those who love pop/punk stars, losing sight of your relationship, breaking down barriers, true love, scorching sex, and a very happily ever after.
