The Devil’s Tattoo by Nicole R. Taylor
Publication date:  September 1st 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+

Synopsis:
Zoe Granger picked up her first guitar the day her heart was smashed into a billion pieces. It was a way to keep her mind off her inevitable downward spiral, but music soon became her escape. She's been burned too many times to tell and is just happy to coast through life, never putting herself out there. That's until her best friend Dee suggests they start a band and suddenly she finds herself not just a part of it, but fronting the whole outfit.

They call themselves The Devil's Tattoo and when they release their debut EP, it rockets to the top of the charts and it's like an overnight fairytale. Contracts, photo shoots, royalties and interviews are heaped onto the shy Zoe and it's like she's finally found her place. Then comes the phone call that changes everything. They've been asked to co-headline a tour with one of the hottest bands of the moment, The Stabs and Zoe will never be the same again.

Will Strickland is one fourth of the hottest indie rock band to ever grace the airwaves. He's the bass player in The Stabs, hot as hell and could have his pick of any girl that flings herself at him. But he's only got eyes for Zoe and she has no idea why he'd bother. She's got one hell of a trust issue and an attitude to boot and Will seems to be the one who wants to tame her, but is he game enough?

The Devil's Tattoo and The Stabs go on the road and it's either going to be a highway to hell or a stairway to heaven. Only time will tell who will come out on top and Zoe's determined to do it without getting her heart broken… again.

Review
Zoe Granger has been living  within her carefully crafted cracked shell trying mend the pieces that shattered her life two years ago.  Her best friend Dylan "Dee" feels it is time to give her a much needed nudge.  With a natural talent for music, Zoe ends up in a band with Dee and his friend, a band that is quickly gaining traction and has Zoe being noticed by Will Strickland, the bass player of The Stabs.

Typically Will has no problem getting a woman, but he is bored of his reputation as a bad boy who takes every women who blinks to bed.  He notices Zoe long before she makes a name for herself and when her band The Devil's Tattoo gets a following, he pushes for the band to tour with them.  Hoping he will get a chance to spend time with Zoe, but some of his tactics are not working and Zoe is even more fascinating than he thought.

Excellent story.  Zoe has baggage and it is not revealed right away which I loved, you go to know more about her character and not how she had evolved over the last two years.  Will is a swoon worthy hunk and he is out of his depth with Zoe, he fumbles, mucks it up and can't seem to find an even balance to get close enough to express his interest.  Highly recommend.

  2. Thanks for reviewing! I was trying a different angle to the rock star romance stereotype, something a little more 'real life'. So glad you enjoyed it.
