Gotta Love the Guys with Rhythm

Everybody loves them some musicians.
Even if you’re one of those weird people who doesn’t like music, you cannot deny that there’s something undeniably hawt about musicians. Maybe you’re a lead singer lover. You love Billy Idol’s snarl, M. Shadows’ Texas twang, Chris Cornell’s pure sex voice. Okay that’s me. Or maybe you like the enigmatic lead guitarist like Slash or Mark Tremonti. Bassists? How about Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx or Hinder’s Mike Rodden?
Well, if you’re anything like me, you’re hot for the drummer.
I’ve always had a thing for drummers. Neil Pert? One of the best. Tommy Lee? Be still my Kickstarted Heart. Even Lars Ulrich before that whole Napster ordeal. For me, drummers are the backbone of the band, the keepers of the cadence, the primal glue that holds the music together. And then there’s all that aggression….

My super-big drummer crush right now is on Halestorm’s Arejay Hale. Granted, the guy is totally hot, but he is also a BEAST behind a kit. A BEAST.

SEE??? BEAST. There’s a reason his nickname is Animal…. *Drags mind from gutter* *Mind scrambles for purchase* Ty may not be a drummer, but he’s a hot-as-hell bassist and songwriter, and that’s more than enough for Claire. A romance author who needs to love…. 

Best-selling romance author Claire Ergleston confines her passions to the pages of her books. When she receives a 1Night Stand date ‘to give her something to talk about in interviews,’ can she let herself be swept away? 

A rock star who needs to let go…. The past has a chokehold on former rock star Ty Krause. Instead of killer tunes, he kills time writing passable songs for a British boy band and his nights wishing he had the balls to say goodbye. In a last ditch effort, he signs up for 1Night Stand, thinking that a night of no-strings-attached sex will help him break the leash of his past. 

From the moment Claire and Ty meet, sparks fly—but can they overcome their pasts or will their potential love story end on a sour note?
