For fifteen years, Cade Anderson, drummer for the world-famous rock band 7’s Mistress, has been in love with his best friend, the band’s lead singer. Even though it’s been years since they were lovers, Cade still wants the man. When his best friend falls in love with someone else, life as Cade knows it is over. The band breaks up and Cade has to figure out how to move on.
For ten years, Mal Wilson has hidden who he really is from the small-minded people of Arlo, Kentucky. The family farm is dwindling down to nothing, and the bar he owns is draining him dry. When it looks like he’s going to lose both, Mal has to figure out where to go from here.
For three months, Cade has been drinking and f*cking his way across the country, trying to forget about his former friend and lover. When he finds himself at a redneck joint in the middle of nowhere, he is drawn to the handsome roughneck tending bar. Something in the man stirs Cade for the first time in years.
When Mal ends up in a hotel room with the handsome blond man who sat in his bar for hours, the man asks for one night together. When Mal wakes up, he knows that one night will never be enough, but it has to be.
One musician, rich and famous, out and proud of his sexuality. One cowboy, poor as the dirt under his boots, hiding who he is from the world. It’ll never work. Or will it?
Release Me is a love story between a hard rockin' drummer and a hard workin' cowboy.
Release Me is book 2 in The Music Within series, however I haven’t read the first book in the series, so it most def can be read as a standalone as I don’t feel like I missed anything by not reading it.
This was my first book by Faith, and I really enjoyed her writing style. The story line and character development was thoroughly thought out and came together well in the end.
Cade and Mal’s journey to HEA wasn’t pretty yet was so beautiful at the same time. They were both such very different people, Cade being a drummer to a popular rock band and Mal being your typical rancher cowboy, it was only suppose to be one night yet is one night ever really enough?
I was hooked from the get go and really enjoyed reading all about their past stories, especially with the suspense factor featuring in with Mal. All the secondary characters have worked their way in to my hearts and I am intrigued to see whether this series carries on based around some guys at the ranch.
A few things stood out to me on more of the negative side.. one being how Mal acted once finding the truth about Cade – it seemed totally diva-ish and not really necessary, and the other thing was how quickly Mal’s problem with his father disappeared considering he was an underlining factor to the story line throughout… a little more drama surrounding him and this story would of been most def catapulted more to the 5 star rating.
