In the spotlight, two unlikely men will meet and have to overcome the greatest obstacles to find each other

Los Angeles-based stylist Nico Takahashi loves his job—or at least, he used to. Feeling fed up and exhausted from the cutthroat, gossip-fueled business of Hollywood, Nico daydreams about packing it all in and leaving for good. So when Grady Dawson—sexy country music star and rumored playboy—asks Nico to style him, Nico is reluctant. But after styling a career-changing photo-shoot, Nico follows Grady to Nashville where he finds it increasingly difficult to resist Grady’s charms. Can Nico make peace with show business and all its trappings, or will Grady’s public persona get in the way of their private attraction to each other? (Goodreads Blurb)

If there’s anything I’ve come to learn to appreciate in 2015, it’s how tempting and decadent two men finding each other irresistible have become. Lilah Suzanne’s Broken Record’s is one that needs to be mentioned simply because her two leading men are the types you never would have expected to see or feel their attraction: the star and the makeup/fashion artist; an unlikely pair to say the least. These men learn what it means to trust each other in a business where sexuality sells and the tabloids thrive on the slightest evidence of trouble in paradise, and what it means to live in the limelight and in the safety of each other’s arms. As a first time reader of Lilah Suzanne’s, I must freely admit that when I read the blurb, I was more than intrigued and wanted to know more about the author – however, I refused to do any research or read any review to avoid being swayed by other’s opinions. I was only too happy I did as such since my experience was more appealing, captivating, enticing and especially decadent. Ilah Suzanne is one author I would love to continue to follow in the future.

Broken Records was a wonderful read. It’s a lovely romantic tale that tells the story of Nico and Grady. They come from very different backgrounds, but end up in the intertwined worlds of fashion and music.

Lilah offers rich descriptions of what the characters wear as it speaks to their personalities, while the music speaks to their hearts. Oh and I loved Grady’s hobby. So cute! But you have to read the story to find out what it is!

If you’re a fan of Lilah’s previous two novels, then Broken Records is a must read. If you’re new to her writing, she crafts stories that tug at your heartstrings, have dumb boys in love that make you swoon (including some pretty hot scenes), and interesting supporting characters that enrich the world of these stories.

(minor spoilers below the cut)

It’s only appropriate that Nico’s aha moment comes on the road, amidst his frustration with other drivers. Actually quite a lot of this story takes place in various vehicles (cars, buses, planes). I’m not sure if that was a conscious decision, but it felt very natural. And when you think about it, those are usually the places that you listen to the most music or read fashion magazines or have meaningful conversations with your travel companions… or you know, try to convince them to join the mile high club with you…jeez Grady, better luck next time.

Lilah might have a thing for putting her characters in tight sleeping quarters. There was Felix’s elevated loft bed in Pivot and Slip, and then in Broken Records, well let’s just say there’s some sexy shenanigans in a tour bus bunk.

And I’m really happy there’s going to be more Nico and Grady and Gwen. It will be interesting to see where Lilah takes this series!

Format: Paperback
Nico Takahashi has seen it all, and done little of it. He's a behind-the-scenes guy, styling B-list clients who mostly drive him cuckoo. With his partner Gwen, he works crazypants hours and has built a good reputation. Good enough to draw in Grady Dawson--insanely gorgeous country music sensation, and noted flagrant bisexual. Grady is delicious, and Nico is a veritable starving man. When Grady pours on all his southern charm, poor Nico's a goner.

But.

Yeah, it's tough falling for a guy who is hounded by fans and lives in the limelight that Nico abhors. He's fixed up with placid, nice guys all the time, and experienced none of the passion that one of Grady's smiles inspires. They are open and honest with each other, and go into a physical relationship with lust-filled eyes, yet Nico's feet get frozen the second he gets identified in the tabloids and fan forums. Nico would normally walk away...if only Grady wasn't such a great guy. Grady's had it rough, and Nico doesn't want to be yet another somebody who disappoints him. Nico can't function in the spotlight. He can't, and Grady soon learns he doesn't want to go this long road alone.

I really liked this one. Nico's a bit prissy, admittedly, and he's bowled over by Grady's genuine personality. He begins to crave Grady's approval and their incendiary passion, but really struggles with the celebrity aspects of being the lover of a star. Nico doesn't want their life to be tabloid fodder, and there's the issue of Grady being bisexual--and continually paired with an industry darling, Clementine. Some of their fans are pretty vociferous regarding the desires of a match, there.

Nico tells this story, and I think he tells it honestly.
