Stevie Stone is a tatooed, straight talking, girl-roadie with the highly successful American rock group, Black Rock Diamond. In a world dominated by men, she can hold her own and gives as good as she gets. Stevie is also involved in an open and ambiguous relationship with front man Mark Cassidy – which pivots around the physical relationship they have and the fact that, no matter what, they always gravitate back to each other. However, when things are bad between the two and Mark is hooking up with one groupie or another, Stevie runs to Black Rock Diamond’s guitarist, Johnny Jackson, for comfort, reassurance and a certain amount of retaliation towards Mark. An arrangement that is accepted by everyone it seems.
Life for Stevie and the band jogs along in its usual yet complicated way until politician Daniel Madison turns up and is completely captivated by Stevie. Is there any possible way a prominent MP could become involved with someone such as Stevie without committing political suicide? Not only that, but what’s in it for Stevie? Is this where she can find true love or will it be thwarted by others? Their two worlds are about as far apart as can possibly be. How can they fit into each other’s lives? Who will have to give up the most? Will past lives and secrets stay that way or will they come back to haunt everyone involved?
This is the third rock themed romance I’ve read recently and each one has been very different; See You At The Show falling on the more edgy side of the romance spectrum. I enjoyed reading it and, for me, the story really took off at the half way mark when the stakes were raised and with the tension building, I really didn’t know which way the story line was going. At times I was cheering Mark on, other times championing Johnny’s corner and then still finding myself urging Daniel on – no wonder Stevie was confused, I certainly couldn’t make my mind up what she should do!
