“Once he met her, it was and always would be Lyla.”
They were the gentlemen bad boys of rock. Forming in a garage in a small town in Indiana. Taking their licks on the road. Going balls to the wall until they made their big break.
And then Preacher McCade and the Roadmasters redefined rock and roll.
Guided by their tortured lead singer and songwriter, the Roadmasters changed the face of music in the 80s and 90s. And on their journey to becoming one of the most enduring bands in history—dogged by rumors and myth and fueled by drugs and booze—the Roadmasters had one touchstone.
Preacher’s muse, the love of his life, and the band’s moral compass, from the beginning, Lyla is along for the ride.
But with fame and acclaim in their grasp, they’ve entered the fast lane.
And they didn’t know it, but they were headed for a crash.

A absolute pleasure.
I have never written a review. Which is saying something, considering a read books like some people binge watch the Walking Dead...., but I just felt compelled to write a short thank you for this refreshingly gritty story about love, loss, and of course, rock n’ roll. KA’s books are always fun to read, and can evoke all types of emotions, but this book was such a change from her normal story structure, and had me stopping and re-reading lines to make sure I was getting all of the thought provoking details of how life, love and loss is no better expressed and shared than in the words found in stories, put to music. I am currently listing all of the songs mentioned to go back and listen to them with a new found appreciation for those that lived them, wrote about them and then gave them to us to forever enjoy. Cheers!
Not so much
I have read all of her books except the Fantasy land series and have enjoyed and loved them all until now. It just felt disjointed and that we didn’t really get to know the characters at all. I didn’t mind the interview style, but it was sometime difficult to follow being told mostly by a third party. I get trying something different, but this just didn’t work for me. P.S. I miss the ‘Burg.
I’ve read 3 rock group novels in as many months (don’t think I’d ever read one before-funny how things tend to come in 3’s)and this was as good, if not better than the other two. It was pure Kristen Ashley: dark into light. Easier to read, tho written in the interview style like “Daisy Jones and the Six”.
