Prince of Punk Rock by Jenna Galicki Promo




Warning: This book is for mature audiences only.

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. Jessi’s only condition to their tumultuous sex life is that the men are one night stands. But when Angel Garcia enters their 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.


~MY REVIEW~

I will be honest here, I have no idea why I chose to read and review this book. I'm not really into punk rock, but I do like Rockers. M/M relationships aren't at the top of my list, but I do love a great love story so I can sometimes look past that. Given that I was provided and ARC as part of a blog tour, I didn't have the benefit of reviews to help influence my choice. No matter what the reason, I really am glad I chose to read it. I loved it. Whatever reservation I had went right out the window.

I could feel the love between Jessi and Tommy, they had a strong, loving marriage. They would do anything for each other. I just don't think I can put their relationship into words. Jenna really developed this part of the story well. Most authors have trouble setting this up so well with relationships with no issues, but Jenna was able to do it given Tommy's desires.

Jessi knew that her husband had a desire for men before she married him. She refused to get married until he worked out his feelings toward men. Together, they found a way to be happy and allow for Tommy to explore his need for men through a series of one night stands with strangers.

Then Angel came along.Angel was instantly attracted to  Tommy, but he kept himself in check because he knew he was married and he refused to come between Jessi and Tommy.

Finally, after so much fantastic build up, I was relieved to see them all get together. I didn't care who was with whom, they just needed to be together. The way their relationship developed and grew throughout the book kept me reading until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. Angel and Jessi both had their insecure moments, who wouldn't when the man they love also loves someone else, but luckily, they are able to overcome it all.

There is a second book in the works, one I will be definitely be on the lookout for. I just want to know that the three of them have their happily ever after. Their love just put a smile on my face. It's love stories like this that make me love romance novels.



Excerpt

The faces changed since the last time he was there, but the intention was still the same. It wasn’t a place to socialize or partake in camaraderie or drop in for a drink on your way home. It was meeting place for men interested in casual sex. The backroom served as a shanty for a quick encounter. You could stop in, get your rocks off and be on your way in half an hour. It was a smorgasbord of testosterone, a buffet of muscle and beefcake.

Men flocked around him as soon as he walked through the door. They always did. A guy once told him that it was the mixture of his rugged jaw and strong upper body, offset by the innocence of his big blue eyes that made him so attractive. The ladies always said it was his long blond hair and the guitar.
