Danny 'Madman' Maddox isn’t supposed to make Skylar Haze's heart beat out of rhythm.
At least not anymore.
She hasn't seen that boyish face, always covered in a five o'clock shadow, dimpled smile and teasing hazel eyes since the day he left to go on tour with her brother Joey's band. Now with a major record label backing them the band is in need of a bit of help, and when Joey asks Skylar to be the band's photographer, she can't help but say yes.
Of course, Joey doesn’t know about that forbidden kiss.
The one Skylar hopes Danny’s forgotten.
But can she?
One smile and she finds herself slipping again.
But he’s the drummer, and he’s beaten her heart before.
And she won’t let it happen again.
Review: Boys of Fallout 1: Out of Beat
Out of Beat by Cassandra Giovanni is the first book in her new Boys of Fallout series. Rocker romance that is much more on the young new adult side with it's minimal cussing and fade to black love scenes. The pace was slow but steady and the characters were well-written. The story is NOT overly dramatic but does touch on some deep topics such as child abuse, domestic violence, and bullying. The characters also grow and learn to lean on those they trust and that sharing your story can ease your burden.
The two main characters in this, Danny and Skylar are best friends. Danny is the drummer in a band with Sky's brother and two other guys, Zack and Aaron. They are all as close with her as her brother is but Danny and Sky are closer than that. After one shared kiss years ago, They're back and taking her on the road with them to be their photographer.
The story covers their lives on tour, their success that grows as they become more cohesive as a team and family, and has a happy ending.
