4 ½ Sweet love Stars
Everything is finally falling into place for Trey Cooper: his band has been accepted into one of the biggest music competitions in the country…too bad their drummer just quit to play with XYZ, their biggest rival. When Trey has a mind-blowingly hot hookup with a mysterious violinist, Trey definitely plans to see him again – just not on stage as a member XYZ.
Dominic Bounds’ time to make his musical dreams come true is running out. If something doesn’t happen fast, he has to head home to find a real job. This competition is his last chance, and Dom needs to come out on top – but he never expected to fall for his rival. As Dom and Trey risk everything to begin a secret affair, there’s no denying their chemistry is off the charts – but could their band rivalry turn their romance into a one-hit wonder?
A moment of silence for those beautiful lives lost in Orlando…
Love is love…why do you care who another person loves…how another person loves…Dom is out and proud. His family is supportive, loving and protective. He has talent oozing out of his every fingertip, whether it’s on the piano, guitar or violin.
Trey is not out…his closest BFF knows, but other than her…he is alone in the world, cut off from his family and hiding his true self.
I enjoyed the honest relationship these two had even though it was founded on a lie…sad when you might be willing to lie and deceive someone just to have one more minute with them…ahhhh…forgive him I was shouting!
As the story weaves back and forth from Trey and Dom being hookups to friends to friends with benefits to something real…the love is there right from the beginning and the respect for the other man as an artist was so heartwarming. These two screw up, make mistakes and all the while, they are there for the other and cheering for the others success. That is when you really know you love someone, when you want better for them than you want for yourself. Sweet, loving and HEA…enjoy!
