Synopsis via GoodReads: Matt Carter, self-proclaimed sex-god and drummer for world renowned Souls of the Knight, didn’t have the time or inclination for planning his future, preferring to fill his days with music, women and alcohol. He didn’t want or need anything else in his life.

Until the band parted ways and he found himself no longer living the dream.

Bored and lonely, with too much time and money on his hands, Matt turns to his best friend, Alex Clark, to help devise a new direction to take his life in. Together, they embrace their newfound venture, as owner and manager of one of L.A.’s hottest gay clubs – Kaleidoscope. For the first time, Matt has a plan. He knows where life is heading.

Until a devastating phone call turns his whole world upside down, sending him straight into the comforting arms of his best friend and leading him to doubt everything he’s ever known or believed about himself.

Alex had always been content with his unrequited feelings for his rockstar friend, but as Matt starts to question if he might actually feel the same, he runs as fast as his feet will allow.

Has Matt gone too far? Has his reputation as an irresponsible womanizer who refuses to take life seriously, finally managed to push his best friend away for good?

Or is Alex hiding secrets of his own?

Review: Oh Matt, I’ve missed you! ♥

My favorite smart-assed, man-whore drummer has his own book. It’s by far my favorite of the three in this series. One that makes my hopeless romantic heart happy. There were several parts where I just got all and heart-eyed and melted into a puddle of goo complete with the obligatory “Awww.” And then, Matt being Matt, would say something utterly and completely inappropriate where I would bust out laughing.

The only thing I didn’t like was the use of my two most hated plot devices, but because I completely fell in love with Matt, I will forgive Ms. Haken for that. They did not drag on long anyway, so it was not a big deal in the grand scheme of things and actually did not dampen my enjoyment of the book. Overall, it was more of a character-driven story anyway.

If you’re a romantic at heart with a good sense of humor, I recommend it. ♥
