5-Star Book Review: Gone For You by Jayne Frost (A Sixth Street Band Romance)

Gone for You
Length: 160 pages
Genre: Sexy romance, erotic romance
Heat rating: Get out your summer wardrobe—things are about to get hot!

As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters. 

Until her… 

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas. 

So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do. 

Simple, right?

My Review

Gone For You is a rockstar romance that captured my attention right from the start, and even though it falls into the insta-love category, everything about how Lily and Cameron meet and fall for each other is just perfect.  I’ll be honest—I went into this thinking I was going to be reading just another rockstar book, something to pass the time and keep me entertained…and finished with this being one of my favorites in that category.  Consider it rockstar romance done right!

It’s got all of the elements that make up a great romance—the hot rockstar playboy who finds “the one”, a sweet leading female character that has some tricky family issues, a strong cast of supporting characters that are intriguing enough to hope you’ll get to hear their stories as well…and of course the angst that comes with finding love in complicated situations.  The writing totally drew me in, and the chemistry between Lily and Cameron was solid and pretty hot.  And I absolutely LOVED getting this story from Cameron’s point of view.  Hearing a romance from the male POV is always a huge plus for me, and getting to understand how Cameron feels and his vulnerabilities made for a very interesting read.

I loved how Lily was strong enough to follow her own dreams instead of those her parents wanted to lay out for her.  Lily’s mother is one of those that I just wanted to give a piece of my mind to, and how Cameron easily backs Lily up and supports her.

Definitely a story that I’ll re-read in the future, Gone For You was a 5-star read for me, and I’d definitely recommend it to fans of rockstar romances, and just romance stories in general.  For the 18+ crowd due to adult language and some hot and steamy scenes.

About the Author

I guess I should start with the basics. The backstory. I was born and raised in California. At this point I'm usually asked what it was like to grow up near the beach, but sadly, I don't know. I grew up in the "other" part of California. Perfect for an aspiring writer, if you ask me. You learn a lot about keeping yourself busy when the nearest house is a mile away...and it belongs to your grandparents.

By the time I went to high school, I started writing romance. Why? Because I met my very own prince charming. I wrote love poems in my journal about the green eyed boy that stole my heart. He promised, the way all storybook hero's do, to sweep me away and take me on a grand adventure. And he did.
We picked up and moved to the Lone Star State, and began the story of us. The best stories begin without a road map or a compass. Veering off course makes the journey so much more interesting.

True to form, just when I thought my life was set, we started the next adventure. I traded in my cowboy boots and followed my green eyed boy to Las Vegas. My home will always be in Texas, but my heart is anywhere that he is.

Writing is what I love. I might stray from the romance every now and then if that is what moves me...but I always come back. Some of the stories don't seem romantic at all. They are gritty stories about flawed characters that find each other and hold on tight. Those are the stories that speak to me. Because that's life. I believe that every story should have a happy ending- even the difficult ones.
