Kicked out of his home at sixteen, he found himself staying in an abusive relationship just to survive. Finally free, he's determined to piece his life back together. Dayton is part of one of the hottest rock bands to hit the scene. He's living his dream as he tours, sharing the music he loves with the world. The problem is, no matter how hard he tries, he can't find anyone to look past his fame. Everyone wants a piece of the celebrity, not the man behind it. He's tired of playing a role and wants someone to see him for who he really is. When a misdirected text message brings Dayton and Bart together, they find an easy friendship as they hide behind the phone screen, neither sharing their true identity with the other. The anonymity allows them to share things they wouldn't with others, drawing them closer, and building a trust between them. When events force them to meet, Bart and Dayton worry things will change, but that doesn't happen. What they find is something stronger than either one ever imagined. Still, the past haunts them, and when one of them is targeted, they risk losing everything they've built together. It will take patience and love to get Bart and Dayton through the trials they must face. With the world watching their every move, they hold on to the only thing that makes sense in their lives… each other.

    I was hoping for so much more from this story because I love me some rock stars with long hair. I mean really love. Add in the hurt/comfort aspect from an abusive relationship and I was all set for some angst. But unfortunately I just wasn't feeling this one. I think it didn't work for me because (1) there seemed to be more telling than showing; (2) the MCs were in love after basically a few days of texting; (3) they communicated perfectly about every little thing in their relationship and seeme I was hoping for so much more from this story because I love me some rock stars with long hair.

So yeah. Bit of a bummer for my expectations, but that's just me.

    Great book! Beautiful story! The "I love you" were a bit fast and all their feeling are discussed and explained multiple times. It was a bit too much.. But it's really a sweet story with no redemption for the parent (thank you). Also great editing!

    3.5* not bad, but too much happy fairytale and not enough excitement.

    Great story I loved both mc’s. Dayton, a young and lonely, burnt out rick star and Bart, a young and lonely, domestic/child abuse survivor. They meet through a wrong number text and hit it off. Starting out as tentative friends and evolving into more. They were both so sweet and loving. There was no miscommunication or drama that so many books have. It didn’t need it to keep your interest. I loved how they communicated on everything. Even scared and unsure, they still opened up and didn’t hold b Great story I loved both mc’s.

I loved how they communicated on everything. Even scared and unsure, they still opened up and didn’t hold back or keep secrets. The villain was both expected and not expected. I don’t want to say more, but it was pretty good. I do think the villain got off easy though. Slight spoiler The only thing I had an issue with and removed a star for was towards the beginning, after the two mc’s started texting, Dayton has sex with Simone random groupie. AFTER a bunch of inner dialogue on how much he hates having random sex. It literally goes like ‘I hate the random meaningless sex with groupies who only want me for my fame...oh hey a girl want to sleep with me, but I’m gay, so this guy will do’ and then they go have sex. And it’s explained in detail. I don’t know about most readers, but when I read ROMANCE I don’t want to read about the mc’s having sex with other people. I don’t care if they weren’t in a relationship ye, by the blurb we know whose getting together. There was no reason for the sex scene. It literally did NOTHING for the story. It was as if the author was writing and got to a certain word count and thought, yeah I need full on anal with a stranger that makes no sense and brings nothing to the story. I almost stopped reading. I def skimmed past it. Ok rant over. I’m glad I finished it though because it really was a good book. Just wish she would have left that needless sex scene out.

    A meeting by an accidental wrong number text message! Bart is an incredibly brave young man who had to endure being kicked out of his home with nothing but the clothes on his back. He’s had to endure incredible abuse at the hands of someone he thought cared for him. Dayton is the singer for one of the world’s top rock band and he’s tired of living his life as his persona, “Dayton the rock star”. Yes he’s incredibly wealthy but he wants to be loved for the real person he is. I loved and cried over B A meeting by an accidental wrong number text message!

I loved Dayton for being careful with Bart. Great story!

    Great read I loved this book. The story was solid, clear and engaging. The real strength of this book is the characters though; well rounded, likeable and I cared about what happened to them.

    Beautiful Oh my, what a beautiful, heartbreaking, emotional journey, one full of love and hope too. There were a few heartstopping moments where I literally couldn't breathe. Bart and Dayton were beautiful together and the way they met was awesome.

    This was a 150 page story told in 300+ pages. It could have used a proofreader. The guys were like 12 year old girls, except I don't think 12 year old girls talk about their feelings that much.

    Great book I love your books but Bart and Dayton are some of my favorites. They were great and I love how you deal with real issues and give characters depth.
