Gone for You
I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review (and to take part in the book tour) and I honestly can say that I really enjoyed. It was not too long or super short, it was captivating and passionate.
As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications.Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.
Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.
So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Bio (with social media links) for Jayne Frost:
I guess I should start with the basics. The back story. I was born and raised in California. At this point I’m usually asked what it was like to grow up near the beach, but sadly, I don’t know. I grew up in the “other” part of California. Perfect for an aspiring writer, if you ask me. You learn a lot about keeping yourself busy when the nearest house is a mile away…and it belongs to your grandparents.
By the time I went to high school, I started writing romance. Why? Because I met my very own prince charming. I wrote love poems in my journal about the green eyed boy that stole my heart. He promised, the way all storybook hero’s do, to sweep me away and take me on a grand adventure. And he did.
We picked up and moved to the Lone Star State, and began the story of us. The best stories begin without a road map or a compass. Veering off course makes the journey so much more interesting.
True to form, just when I thought my life was set, we started the next adventure. I traded in my cowboy boots and followed my green eyed boy to Las Vegas. My home will always be in Texas, but my heart is anywhere that he is.
Writing is what I love. I might stray from the romance every now and then if that is what moves me…but I always come back. Some of the stories don’t seem romantic at all. They are gritty stories about flawed characters that find each other and hold on tight. Those are the stories that speak to me. Because that’s life. I believe that every story should have a happy ending- even the difficult ones.
I really liked this book, it was captivating and easy to read. I absolutely loved how this book was written in Cameron’s point of view because his witty and sarcastic tone really helped to draw into the narrative, while making it easy to connect with him. This connection between protagonist and reader is further encouraged through Cameron’s internal dialogue, which gives the reader a glimpse into the raw and emotional Cameron who hides behind the rock star facade.
I also really liked the fact that Lily is a complex character and not just another pretty face who becomes infatuated with a popular band member. She is feisty and represents a very modern working women who can stand her ground, which I absolutely loved and respected. Their relationship together was really intense, passionate and intriguing due to the two main characters personalities and chemistry.
I am so happy that this is the first book within the Sixth Street Series because I am definitely ready to read more! Frost’s writing is humorous, easy to read and engaging. If you are looking for a quick, fast pace book to read you should definitely check this out because I hope that just like me, you will enjoy it.
