Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, GLBT
Blaze Shinozuka has two goals: get a job as a guitarist and lose his virginity. At an audition for a famous pop star, he draws the attention of celebrity manager Jason Stockton—and their instant attraction sends his world careening off its axis just as he is thrust into the gritty world of rock 'n' roll.
Straight-laced music manager Jason Stockton is always professional and never dips his pen in the company ink. But there is something about Blaze that leaves him wanting what he shouldn't. The guitarist's exotic beauty and compelling innocence is a temptation Jason can't resist.
After one lie in the national media pushes them apart, Blaze must decide whether he will trust Jason, a man he shouldn't touch, let alone love. The cutthroat, jealous world of rock 'n' roll, has chewed up and spit out the toughest musicians, and Blaze vows he will be the last man standing, even after the music stops.

THE REPLACEMENT GUITARIST traces the sexual relationship between Blaze and Jason, the two male protagonists.
Blaze is given an opportunity to perform guitar in the band of a hugely successful star. The star in question has a reputation for ruthlessness and acts of willfulness. Amidst this is Jason Stockton, rock star manager and son of highly successful actors in L.A. He eschews the limelight, however, preferring to focus on his managerial abilities of steering musicians to fame and adulation. When Jason and Blaze meet for the first time, the sexual tension is palpable and Blaze is thrown into a morass of emotional confusion about his attraction for someone apparently unattainable like Jason.
Their relationship develops pretty quickly, and it is obvious that at the least, they find each other more or less sexually irresistible. There's lots of sex in this story. And I mean...lots of sex. It's written well, although I found some of it repetitive as, from a personal viewpoint, there are only so many aching erections I can take. Saying that, while this wasn't badly written sex, and it will probably be more than lots of folks' cup of aphrodisiac tea. The plot itself essentially revolved around Blaze and Jason getting it on, and I found Jason in particular to be a very good alpha male.
As a personal preference, this didn't rock my world, but it was well written, with quick pacing and hot moments.
