The one she really wants is out of reach.
The one he really needs is already taken.
Dizzy Lowell, rhythm man for the rising rock band Tempest, is a wizard on the guitar and a wonder with women. But the hookup specialist hides his emotional scars beneath his suave exterior. He never lets anyone truly touch him.
April Reynolds, the confident bartender of the Diamond Mine, knows her way around a cocktail, but Dizzy has her all mixed up. She knows what's safe. She's tired of settling, though. It would be so easy to fall under his spell.
Except for that ring around her finger.
Two searching souls separated by a thin metal band.
Some dreams are dangerous.
Some secrets shouldn't be shared.
Sometimes what we wish for most can never be.

Rocked my world!
I was so lucky and thrilled to read this as an ARC. ARC received for an honest review. This book is the 4th in the Tempest series and it blow you away!
This book is about forbidden love, about wanting something that is out of your reach. From the moment they meet, Dizzy sees thru the tough exterior front that April hides behind & he is intrigued by what is she hiding.
Dizzy recognized in April what he experienced himself, and he wants to protect her, be there for her, and he can't fix the past but he definitely wants to fix her future.
They both understand pain and both deserve a better future, but will that future be together? The metal band that she wears is that only barrier for the forbidden passion that they feel. The relationships in this book are the common thread in all of Mankin's books, she creates characters that you simply love and feel real emotions for them right from the start. This book will really make you wonder what happens when you marry the wrong person? What do you do when you feel trapped in marriage? April & Dizzy both deserve a better future and as you read this book you will be hoping for a breakthrough to their happiness.
With his guitar strap. Really?
Omg! There is a story beneath the usual sex, drugs and rock and roll that blew me away. I love the mystery. I love the rock 'n roll. But most of all I love the back and forth narration from the audio team. This audio book is not just a straight narration. It is acted out. Like a movie without the visual. Incredibly sexy. I dont think I will ever go back to a female narrator lowering her voice to be the male after this.
