RELEASE DATE: October 16, 2020
A decade of playing local bars and festivals with my band is over.
Just like that.
Big break? More like broke up. Broken Thunder-- maybe the name was a sign.
Now I find myself at a crossroad, not ready to leave music behind.
An audition for the legendary band Reckless Fury, could change everything.
At least that's what I hope until I see who's calling the shots.
No names. One incredible night. It's her!
I had no idea she was the Princess of Rock, when she was rocking my world.
All I need is a chance to prove myself.
With the band.
She thinks she knows why I'm here, she's wrong.
4 Stars from Tiffany!
Sexy Rocker Read.
Emery Jacobs gives her readers quite the set up in the first book of the Velvet Thunder series. We focus on Gracie and Slade this time around, however it seems like all of our other players are introduced as well.
Slade has been trying to make it in the music business for ten long years. Never really rising to a level above small bars and when his band decides to give it up, Slade doesn't know what he's going to do. Drowning his sorrows at the bar, he happens to be there the same night a beautiful woman is ready to check something off of the ole mental bucket list.
Gracie Phillips may be a rock princess, that doesn't mean she can't have a break from reality every so often. What she needs a break from life at the moment and thinks finding some strange is the way to go. She's been around arrogant jerks her entire life, so when she sees Slade from across the way, she really wants to take a pass on his arrogant looking ass, but doesn't.
I liked Slade and Gracie apart and together. They were both looking for something and didn't really know what until things started to fall in place for them. We knew Gracie has some baggage from her past and the same can be said for Slade. It isn't until everything is laid out in the open do we find out our cute little couple have some hurdles to jump.
Everything that Glitters is a rock and roll story, however the band was in the background letting the characters shine. Almost like the band sets up the problems and the characters deal with them. Along with Gracie and Slade, we have friends and family that are constantly involved in thier lives as well as the band. I loved Gracie's dad and think a sneak peek into his past would be very interesting. Looks like Gunner is up next with a story of his own to tell.
Emery grew up in Southern Arkansas and has lived most of her adult life in Northern Louisiana. She spends her days working as a Nurse Practitioner in rural health and her nights reading, writing, and occasionally sleeping.
She loves real life romance…lots of angst and heartbreak, but always a happy ending.
