Sara: As the daughter of Senator and presidential hopeful Jentsen Holbrook, I spent a good deal of my life under public scrutiny. What I wore. Where I went. Who I dated. It was just the way of things. I'd become what was expected of me, until I ran from my obligations and woke up one morning in Cross de Raven's and Eryk Hale's world, two hot guitarists from the mega-famous metal band, Cinder. For the first time, freedom to be myself was within my reach. And along with that? Inevitable scandal.
Eryk: True beauty walked into my life, more beauty than I ever deserved. I partied hard. Rocked harder. I wasn't good enough to touch Sara's petal-soft skin, hold on tight, or love her, but regardless of my bad boy ways, no one was going to stop me from trying.
Cross: Sometimes, no matter how hard we fight for what we want, love won't save the day, and truth doesn't always set you free. Then again… Maybe, just maybe, when you find the one you've been searching for, love can find a way.

A woman desperate to make an escape finds two men ready to save her.
When Sara finds herself in the middle of a crowded room, being watched by everyone while her boyfriend of only a few months proposes to her, all she wants to do is run. Away from the man who wants to marry her but doesn't love her. Far from the father who has molded her into the perfect daughter for his presidential bid. And out of view of the meddling press who want to document her entire life for everyone to see.
She seeks solace at the home of her best friend who won't let her sit around and brood. The pair decide to cut loose and go to a rock concert, scoring backstage passes in the process. The show is a nice distraction from Sara's problems but when she meets the band members, she realizes she may have a whole new set of troubles. She's drawn to two of the rockers and they seem to have taken an instant attraction to her.
Cross and Eryk have always shared their lovers. Best friends and band mates, they are practically brothers and have been waiting for a woman to come along who will complete their triangle. It isn't just sex for them with Sara, which they soon realize after only one night. They just have to convince her to stay and give this thing between time to blossom. One fun night turns into two and days become weeks.
But Sara's life is currently in shambles so Eryk and Cross want to make sure that she isn't just with them because she's in hiding. They need to know that she wants them as much as they want her. Because once word spreads of the senator's daughter being in a relationship, their happy little bubble may burst and leave all three of them with broken hearts.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. There was a bit of suspension of disbelief here since Sara allows herself to pretty quickly become enamored by her two rock stars. I am certainly one to accept a lustful attraction, yet this one turned emotional almost immediately for the guys. The other band mates also took to Sara a bit too easily. But setting aside traditional thinking, I found this story to be quite enjoyable and smoking hot.
Sara was a pretty likable character who obviously struggled throughout the story, trying to come to terms with the woman her father and almost-fiance wanted her to be. In the second half, we get to see things from Cross and Eryk's POV which was a nice change of pace and helped me to connect with them. The romance was sweet and spicy. There were a few nice twists thrown in, too.
Overall, a nice story that definitely left me interested in seeing more from this author. 4 stars!
