About the book……….

Going away to college gives LIZA GLASNER a chance to escape her painful and dangerous past…or so she thinks. At fourteen years old, she survived an attack by a famous musician. After that, the media, groupies and crazies hounded her with a merciless cruelty that ruined her life. But now she’s thriving—until an internship brings her face to face with the sizzling hot lead singer of a rock band, and she finds herself drawn to the very thing that once destroyed her. Justice is a temptation she can’t resist…and one that could get her killed.

Sexy rock star JUSTICE CADE is determined to take his band, Savaged Illusions, to the top by winning the Court of Rock T.V. show. Tortured by guilt for failing his family, he believes fame is his only path to redemption. But when the fiery college-intern hiding her beauty beneath baggy sweaters and a snarky attitude bursts into his life, Justice is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the stardom he craves. The wrong choice will cost him more than he can bear.

**This is book one in a trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. However the next two books are being released in July and September so readers won’t be stranded on the cliff for long!

Meet The Author……

Jennifer Lyon is the pseudonym for USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Apodaca. Jen lives in Southern California where she continually plots ways to convince her husband that they should get a dog. After all, they met at the dog pound, fell in love, married and had three wonderful sons. So far, however, she has failed in her doggy endeavor. She consoles herself by pouring her passion into writing books. To date, Jen has published more than fifteen books and novellas, including a fun and sexy mystery series and a variety of contemporary romances under the name Jennifer Apodaca. As Jennifer Lyon she created a dark, sizzling paranormal series, and The Plus One Chronicles, an emotionally sensual adult contemporary series. Jen’s won numerous awards and had her books translated into multiple languages, but she still hasn’t come up with a way to persuade her husband that they need a dog.


If you’re a fan of rock and roll (I am), reality tv shows (I am) or new adult romance (I am NOT), you’re going to love this book. Two out of three isn’t bad, so I was anxious to grab this book and dive right it. I’m glad I did! It’s about a competition for up and coming rock bands.

It was fun. The characters are well-developed and compelling. Liza has a tough back–story. It’s very easy to understand her desire to stay out of the spotlight, a little harder to understand her career path. She has done a pretty good job of hiding for years, just to endanger her anonymity when she meets Justice Cade.

Justice is the lead singer for the rock band, Savage Illusions. Not only is he a great singer, he’s a really nice guy, the kind of guy that would attract most young women whether they’re fans of rock music or not.

“He dragged his thumb along the curve of her neck. “Good.” Leaning down, he pressed his mouth to hers. “When you want it bad enough that it hurts, when you can’t bear not having me inside you, then you’ll be ready.” Pulling back, he released her. “But that’s not tonight. Unfortunately.”

He’s sweet and caring, and even though he could, he’s not the kind of man who would push a young woman further and faster than she is willing to go. And that just made Liza fall harder and deeper.

The blurb says that this book ends on a cliffhanger, and it’s a doozy! But, the second book will be published very son, so grab a copy and…
