An Inevitable Duets Romance
Steadfast drummer Ash Wright and wild-card bassist Dean Phillips have been best friends forever, but Ash finds himself wanting more. A break from touring should give him the space he needs to get his head on straight–except then Dean moves in with him….
Ash has been fighting his growing attraction to Dean ever since an ill-fated threesome on the last leg of their tour. All he wants is some time to get over it. But that doesn’t seem to be in the cards, because Dean’s mom has given his room to his niece, and he doesn’t have anywhere else to stay. Ash has a big house all to himself, so why shouldn’t he move in?
Because they can’t keep their hands off each other, that’s why.
Dean never saw himself having feelings for another man, but that’s what’s happening. As he and Ash explore their secret new relationship behind closed doors, they also collaborate to help a struggling charity–one Dean feels close to, since it helps underprivileged kids like he used to be learn music. The time off from touring lets them live in their own little world.
Then the band reunites for a fundraiser concert, and suddenly the real world intrudes. Can Ash and Dean navigate a relationship that leaves them in harmony with the rest of the group?
When dance instructor Jamie Griffin choreographs a contemporary ballet pas de deux to a love song by rock band Inevitable Thorns, he doesn’t expect the band’s keyboardist, Beau Davis, to witness it. He definitely doesn’t expect the steamy one-night stand that follows.
Beau leaves to continue touring, but he can’t get Jamie or his passion out of his head... especially once a video of the dance goes viral. This leads to a chance for the two of them to reconnect on tour, with Jamie performing his dance while the band plays live. The lines between a casual fling and a forever romance blur as rock music and ballet join to create magic onstage.
That magic suffuses their relationship too, but the price of fame is steep. When an explosive interview threatens the foundation of what they’re building together, will Beau and Jamie set the record straight and define their relationship—and their art—on their own terms? Or will the stars they’re reaching for elude their grasp?
Can an awkward student and a closeted rock star make beautiful music together?
Music composition student Chase Collins has always worn his heart on his sleeve. That’s why it was so quick to break in high school when Chase lost Carter West, his best friend and first love, to an ill-fated kiss.
Imagine Chase’s surprise five years later when Carter, now a rising rock star, admits to the world that Chase inspired his band’s award-winning song—and that Carter was in love with him all along.
Frontman Carter West has been closeted his whole life. Now that he’s out in the most public way possible, he can finally indulge in the romantic impulses he’s always had to keep stifled. Reconnecting with Chase gives him the opportunity to explore a whole new side of himself.
But the next tour draws inevitably closer, and Chase is wary. Carter left Chase once before. Can two gifted musicians write themselves a love song that will last a lifetime?
