Description from the publisher:

I love her, but I also love him.
She's everything to me.
He sets my world on fire.
It's our dirty little secret, and it’s about to blow our record deal sky high.
I’m Tommy Blade, the Prince of Punk Rock, and this is our story.

Tommy Blade is a man with a secret. It’s a secret he only shares with one person, Jessi Blade – and the men he surrenders to in the bedroom. Her only condition to their tumultuous sex life is that these men are one night stands. But when Angel Garcia enters his life, it’s like a match to gasoline.

Mega-talented punk rock singer Angel Garcia, with his smoldering ebony eyes, tight leather pants and unstoppable stage presence, is a man who is used to getting what he wants. He has his eyes set on Tommy Blade as his new lead guitarist, and as his life partner.

Jessi Blade, sympathetic to her husband's bisexual needs, loves him enough to share him, but she never counted on Angel Garcia to test the threshold of her marriage. He makes her life hell . . . and heaven. He’s her damnation and her salvation. She wants to hate him. She wants to despise him. But, his charm and raw sex appeal are impossible to resist. Without warning, she finds herself falling in love with her husband's gay lover.

At the height of it all, their punk rock band catapults to stardom.

Their lives are marred by secrecy, deception and sacrifice. Feelings of betrayal, backlash from the sensationalistic media and threats of blackmail send them down a hard road filled with tough decisions.

They aren't your ordinary rock stars. They're radical rock stars. And they have a big story to tell.


This is the first book in the Radical Rock Stars.  While it does not end in a cliff-hanger, I would recommend reading the entire series and they do need to be read in the order of release.


I loved the slow build to get to know everyone and where they come from emotionally and musically.  After about the 35% mark, though, I thought I couldn’t read it fast enough to keep up with the whirlwind that has become their lives!


I have been a punk rock fan since the early 80s, so I have been wanting to read this one for a while now.  I was not disappointed.   The sex is supernova hot, but more importantly, the emotions portrayed, in and out of the bedroom, are real.  How would you feel if ______ happened?    That is how the characters react!  Anger, jealousy, fear, worry, happiness, lust – it’s all there and in their appropriate contexts.


Jessi is my favorite character if for no other reason than she knows how to sew and craft.  Her artistic talents may be in a different arena from the guys but it is celebrated and valued immensely.  She’s also the only woman in a male-dominate lifestyle.  She loves Tommy fiercely – enough to curb her own jealousies and allow him to be who he is without recriminations or guilt trips.  While there was a taste of her depth of feelings, I hope that in future books we will delve deeper into how she feels about sharing Tommy, sharing Angel, and sharing the limelights.


As an aside, I don’t remove crowns for grammar and/or editing, but I must mention that this book definitely needs some help in this area.  If you are a grammar snob, there will be some places in the book that may drive you a wee bit crazy.  I prefer to correct things in my head and move on.


Grammar/editing:  C –re-editing would be a benefit
