This review is the hardest one I've ever written for so many reasons. I was thinking back to when I opened up my kindle to the first page of Fall For Me--Dagger and Ryan's story. After finishing that book, I realized that I would follow Ann Lister and her Rock Gods the same way an addict needs their next fix. When it got to the point where I was starting to 'jones', Take What You Want was released. We met Alex, Chase, and Danni. That satisfied me for a bit until I needed the next, Make You Mine--Cooper and Jayson's heartfelt love story. Ann's timing with each new book was akin to being edged; waiting for the pleasure to finally makes its way with the release of another Rock God; Wheland and Rooster found love and a little kink in Looking at Forever. Following their story, Jared and Tony, the quiet duo who were joined at the hip, easily navigated their way from friends to lovers in Meant For Me. I was hanging on by a thread waiting for the next book, Fighting His Fire--Dante and Ashton's explosive and passionate story. There, we were treated to bathroom after bathroom being destroyed while in the throws of lust. Now, it's time to go Beyond the Music, where Lincoln has sat painfully quiet, patiently waiting his turn for his story to be told, his voice to be heard, his diagnosis to be named. Lincoln is beautiful. Inside and out, he is breathtaking and, Lincoln is sick. He's not sure why, but because of his symptoms, he fears his career as bass player for Black Ice might be over. The worst part of not knowing what's wrong parallels the ability to cope with the fallout when you finally get the answer. I can't help but feel personally invested in Lincoln's journey because I too, along with Ann, travel the same path. It's not an easy one but it can be managed.
