The story follows Roxie Taylor and her hope to be a dancer with Beckham Woods and his upcoming tour. Beckham is a rock god, one who Roxie would rather not have to see ever again, but feels it is her time to try to make something of a career for herself and her adorable son Leo. Upon seeing Roxie, Beckham immediately feels a connection but she'll be damned if she'll ever get involved with him. Even though it is more than obvious that these two were meant to be. You can feel it from the very first interactions, even though Roxie is nothing but cold and hard on her boss. However, there are some very sexy rehearsals that showcase the chemistry surrounding Roxie and Beckham which further prove how perfect they could be together. They seem to have this connection both past and present, and it is with much determination and growing affection that Beckham will stop at nothing to find out what the tether might be, that is strung between both their hearts.
But what gives this book that extra pop is that beneath this budding romance is a bit of a mystery. There are chapters written in a woman's POV. Someone who is hell bent on having Beckham for her very own and is obsessively determined to make that a reality. However, it is clear that this mysterious woman is suffering from wild delusion. As the book progresses, you begin to feel that dread that something horrible is going to happen and you start to play a waiting game for when that shoe will drop. The love story between Beckham and Roxie provides the perfect distraction from what most certainly is going to happen at some point down the road.
As an added bonus, Ian Sterling and his gorgeous little family, (from the wonderful True Love Story), play a major role in this book. Watching him be truly happy after such a long road to get the life he so desperately wanted, certainly was the cherry on top for me. Ian and Beckham start a tour together, become good friends and along with their bands, extended families and entourages, a genuine camaraderie is formed that was a pleasure to witness. There is no mistaking that this is Beckham and Roxie's book but the author flawlessly combines their journey with Ian's to give us one helluva great ride.
I literally want to shout from the rooftops how much I loved Fade to Red. The myriad of emotions I felt while reading this book left me breathless. Then upon the conclusion I had my hand to my mouth to muffle the loud gasp that demonstrated my surprise at where the author left us. Although it is a standalone I wouldn't mind just a bit more at some point. This is one story with supremely wonderful characters that you just don't want to end. My heart was in my throat more than once and I couldn't put my e-reader down.
This is a well-written, original and absolutely incredible book. One that will definitely be at the top of my reads for 2015!
A huge 5++++ stars for a job extremely well done.
Roxie Taylor loves dancing. She’s absolutely incredible in her audition for a spot with the dancing entourage for superstar Beckham Woods. Roxie doesn’t think she’ll be offered a position, but when Beck sees her dance, he specifically requests that she be chosen for his upcoming tour with Ian Sterling. He doesn’t realize it, but Beck and Roxie have a history. When they dance together, their sexual chemistry is off the charts, but so is the underlying tension. Roxie carries a whole lot of anger for Beck, and he has no idea why.
Fade to Red is mysterious. Willow Aster kept me guessing about the circumstances surrounding Roxie and Beckham’s past for most of the book. Clues about their past begin early in the story and continue to be sprinkled throughout. Fade to Red drew on my interest like a moth is drawn to a flame. I couldn’t wait to get to the bottom of the truth, but I also enjoyed experiencing their story along the way.
Wow – Willow Aster writes great romantic suspense! I was excited to explore this new component of her writing, especially since I thought Fade to Red was a contemporary romance. She writes a scary villain – one who is mentally unstable, but cunning enough to evade detection – in Fade to Red. I was a nervous wreck the entire time I was reading! The suspense aspect, combined with the element of mystery, really makes Fade to Red a page-turner!
Fade to Red is a spinoff novel of True Love Story. Instead of a small guest appearance of Ian Sterling and Sparrow Fisher, fans of these beloved characters will be delighted to learn this couple plays a huge role in Fade to Red! In fact, along with Beckham and Roxie, Ian claims one of the four points-of-view in Fade to Red. I’ll leave the fourth point-of-view as a surprise.
Willow Aster has her own, unique writing voice, which seems to fit her personality. In Fade to Red, the writing flows beautifully and the pacing is continuous. The author quickly captured my attention with the mystery and clues and by steadily building the suspense element to the explosive climax. My nerves were completely wrecked by the time I finished reading Fade to Red! The back and forth, the push and pull between Roxie and Beck, and the mystery behind their past – all of this combines to create sexual tension that is scorching hot! Fade to Red is truly an outstanding romantic suspense novel, and I really hope we see more in this genre from Willow Aster in the future! Fade to Red grabs 5 stars and is one of my 2015 favorites!
