Especially when your own brother and fellow band-mate stole the woman you were in love with.
Sitting in a Michigan recording studio with him, singing lyrics he wrote about her, is a special kind of torture.
The only thing more frustrating might be the producer’s daughter who radiates sunshine and has more motivational quotes than a greeting card company.
Heavy guitars, a voice with the burn of pure single malt, and lyrics that distil the meaning of love are the greatest things.
If only the man singing didn’t have a temperament as foul as the Michigan winter.
Jase sitting in her car while yelling at her to get him out of there is a surprise. Why she hits the accelerator and takes him to her father’s cabin on the lake is an even greater mystery.
How was she supposed to know they’d end up snowed in for days? Or that when they got out again, their relationship, and her views on love, would be changed irrevocably?
I read Next Time I Fall straight through, I could not put it down and when it was over I wanted to pick it up and start over again. Scarlett Cole has once again produced magic with her words and I am completely under her spell. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Book Reviews
I love it when an author can take a character you don’t like and not only redeem him but have him grow so much that you actually love him, and Scarlett Cole has done just that in Next Time I Fall. This book was pure perfection to me; rock star romance, a strong and smart heroine, a bit of a forbidden romance, conflict with family but not between the couple, and filled with emotion.
Jase almost broke up the band and for sure torpedoed his relationship with his brother in the first book in this series. Faced with letting the band sign with a record company without him, or getting it together enough to move forward Jase does move forward but things are still tense and he’s not sure he will make it through the month in Detroit recording feeling the way he does. What he doesn’t count on is meeting Cerys, their producer’s estranged daughter on the impact she will have on his life in a short amount of time.
After being denied a loan to open her own recording studio in England, Cerys contacted her well known producer father and asked to go to America and work with him to gain some experience and hopefully a reference so she can go home, get a job in a studio there while working towards opening her own. What she didn’t expect was for her father who she’s never really known to pretty much ignore her, treat her like a glorified office assistant, and to not let her help with any of the producing or to listen to her ideas. Frustrated beyond believe, she’s excited for the band Sad Fridays to arrive but seeing their dysfunctional relationship right off the bat she knows until they figure out how to deal with their anger with one another, they might flame out before they even get started. Their lead singer Jase tried to make her life miserable, but soon she’s forcing him to face what he’s feeling, to channel it, and in the process they form an unshakable bond.
Their attraction was combustible, but Jase wanted to do things differently with Cerys and thus this slow burn romance was born. I loved that they really got to know one another; they shared their fears, their heartaches, the family pain, and their hopes as well as their dreams for their futures. Their feelings for one another were powerful and yes there was worry they might burn out after their bubble of Detroit was gone, but they even communicated about that as well. They were open, honest, and raw with one another and it was beautiful to see, but there were also light, fun, and tender moments that left me laughing. Everything in this story was so well balanced.
I read Next Time I Fall straight through, I could not put it down and when it was over I wanted to pick it up and start over again. That’s when I know I’ve read a book that will stick with me for a very long time. Scarlett Cole has once again produced magic with her words and I am completely under her spell.
