Looking At Forever by Ann Lister: Review #Giveaway @AnnListerAuthor @Twinsietalk

coverLooking at Forever
(The Rock Gods, Book 4)
by Ann Lister

Genres: M/M, Contemporary, Erotic, Romance

Mick Wheland, Ivory Tower's bad-boy guitarist, has recently realized two important things about himself. He prefers sex with men over women, and the idea of a committed relationship doesn't scare him as much as it once did. He's seen the positive effects of love from watching his band-mates find life partners, and now he's thinking he might be ready for the same himself. The problem is knowing where to look for Mr. Right, and living out of a suitcase while touring with a band is not exactly conducive to finding real love.

Sonny (Rooster) Roostarelli leaves the seclusion of his Vancouver cabin, where he went to lick his wounds after a contentious divorce, and moves back to Los Angeles. He claims relocating to L.A. is for business purposes, but now that the dust has settled on his failed marriage, Rooster feels he might finally be ready to settle down – with a man.

A chance encounter for Wheland and Rooster on a busy L.A. street rekindles an old friendship between the two professional musicians. Rooster needs a short-term place to stay and Wheland has plenty of extra space at his hillside estate and that lands Rooster in Wheland's guest room. What starts out as a music collaboration opportunity quickly turns personal when the chemistry they have becomes too strong to ignore and soon the music they're making spills from the studio and into the bedroom.

The road is a grueling bitch musicians love to hate. Being on stage under the hot lights can sometimes be the only place they feel comfortable and alive. Can two high-profile rock stars make a life together in such an artificial world – on and off the stage... or will past mistakes and family secrets keep them from finding their forever?
Meet Wheland and Rooster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Normally I start my reviews with my impression of the main characters in a story, but the synopsis for LOOKING AT FOREVER does an exceptional job setting the background for these two characters. If you haven't read it yet I recommend you do so now. ;) What I will say is this:

Mick Wheland: Holy rock-star hotness. Talk about a character that has a loooooong fuse. He is a steady and unassuming presence in the band, but when Wheland lets his inner bad-boy out to play he dominates the page, and Rooster too! You know what they say, "It's always the quiet ones."
Sonny (Rooster) Roostarelli: I want to cuddle him so hard! His kind and generous personality won me over instantly. He's silly, sexy and has a dirty mind... what's not to love?
The physical and emotional chemistry between Wheland and Sonny is so palpable that it melted both my heart and my e-reader! LOOKING AT FOREVER is the fourth in Lister's The Rock Gods series and there is a lot going on in this story. The characters are well established, fans who have been following the series will be delighted with the way Ann continues to develop the relationships from previous books without distracting attention away from Wheland and Rooster's story. It's the first book I've read in the series, so technically it can be read out of order, but I wouldn't recommend doing so. It's such an amazing and well written story that you're going to buy the first three as soon as you finish this one anyway... that's what I did!
