When filmmaker Tawny Michaels is asked to make a documentary about recently re-formed band Greycomet, she already knows who she’ll have to face – her ex-boyfriend Marsh Kilmer, lead singer of the band. In the ten years they’ve been apart Tawny has been happy with nothing but flings, choosing to avoid relationships, but Marsh’s only regret is losing her – and he’s determined to win her back, no matter what.
Knowing the production company is in the financial hole and finding herself still attracted to Marsh, Tawny decides to go along for the ride, but their passionate reunion hits trouble when the documentary attracts a stalker who has been relentlessly chasing the band. Tawny finds herself hiding out with Marsh, fighting to keep her business afloat while keeping herself safe – but soon realises her safety is the last thing on her mind. Can she forgive Marsh the past and trust him with her heart?


“Ready, Dani?” Tawny asked, just as a reminder to Lola that she was the one in charge, thank you very much. “Keep the camera on Marsh for now.”
“Ready to go.” Dani held a hand up alongside the camera, three fingers aloft. “Three, two, one.”
“So what made you decide to do this documentary?” Lola asked. The tone of her voice was a little off, almost excited, and Tawny eyed her suspiciously.
Marsh tilted his head, shrugging. “The band and I are entering a new phase of working. We’re ready to look back over our past as well as turn towards the future.”
“Look back over the past...” Lola paused, although to Tawny it didn’t seem as though she needed to think about her next question. “Do you have any regrets from your past?”
Marsh glanced across at Tawny. “Many things happened in the course of my career that I’m proud of. But I also lost a lot of people along the way. And some of them I will always regret losing.”
A stone seemed to settle in Tawny’s stomach.
“You’ve had a varied career,” Lola commented coolly. “And now you’re releasing a greatest hits album. Would you say that and the documentary are intended to rejuvenate a failing career?”
Tawny’s gaze snapped towards Lola at the same time as Marsh’s did, but Marsh spoke first.
“This interview is over.”
And, holding up one hand towards the camera, he stalked out of the room, brushing past Tawny on his way.



Fans of rockstar romances will find this a steamy and emotional tale of second chances amidst the cold hard truth of addiction that seems to permeate the music world.  There's a feeling of sentimentality radiating off the lead couple, and the remaining bandmates, and it led to painful recollections of their past that have them questioning the here and now.

Overall, the story has a superficial feeling to it as there's no deep delving into what happened between the hero and heroine years ago.  Being told what happened as opposed to being part of the action took away some of the emotional impact.  The few steamy scenes depicted took on a superficial tone too, though there was still a feeling of playfulness that alluded to their long-term connection.  Regardless...the interactions between Tawny and Marsh definitely grabbed my attention, leaving me curious while rooting for them to make a comeback...as a couple and as emotionally-healed individuals.  The three remaining bandmates had me longing to know more about them too as the storyline surrounding them is timely and compelling.  While this story didn't go as deep as I'd hoped it would, it definitely gave me hours of afternoon delight that made me blush while warming my heart.

My rating for this is a B-
