Book Description:
As frontman of up-and-coming rock band, High Velocity, werewolf Zane Alexander has everything a man could want: Fame, fortune, friendship, and a pack to call home. Well, almost everything. Despite being able to take his pick of pretty much any woman, he wants the one girl he can’t have—the one girl who’s eluded his every advance.

Charlie Banks has always had a thing for Zane, but being the band’s head of security, she knows firsthand just the sort of guy he is. She’s determined not to become just another notch on his bedpost, but if doesn’t stop the want for a mate curling in her gut. It’ll happen, someday—it just won’t be Zane. She’s decided that it’s time to leave High Velocity, to find a nice little home and settle down to live the rest of her life, away from sexy smiles and ripped bodies of rock stars.

But when someone threatens Zane’s life, she’s the only one he wants to protect him. Except, Zane has a hidden agenda. One that involves claiming Charlie as his mate, once and for all.

My Review:
This is one of those books that I REALLY didn't have room for in my schedule, but when I read the blurb, I knew I had to read it. I am SO HAPPY that I rearranged a few things to make room for this one. It was sooooo good!! Seriously, if you like books about rock bands, you are going to like this book and it has the added bonus that all the members of the band are werewolf shifters. It's a win-win!!

Charlie is head of security for High Velocity, but has decided it's time for her to move on and quit. She's given her two week's notice, but hasn't told the band, who have all become very close to her. She tells them on her last day and they don't take it well, especially Zane...the lead for the band and the alpha of the group. He can't accept her not being with them. He's always wanted her and his wolf just can't accept this. So he hatches a crazy plan with 2 other members of the band to get her to stay. She can't abandon them if they are in danger...especially Zane...so they create a fake stalker.

This was such a good book. There are four members in the band and they are all very unique. I really liked all of them and hope that they all get their own story. Benji is the youngest and the one that was closest to Charlie in this book. I really loved him. He's young and idealistic, but has an amazing heart that suffered a bit of a break here when Charlie chose Zane. I REALLY want his story next. 

There's a bit of a suspense line when the fake stalker becomes real. I figured it out fairly early in the story, but I still really enjoyed that aspect of the story. Overall it was just a great fun read. 

Sexy Rock Stars + Werewolf Shifters = A Really Good and Entertaining Read!!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
