Blurb: Danny Champion is ready to be a rockstar. He’s been preparing for this most of his life. He’ll finally make it with the Knights. He knows it.

It’s a horrible time to fall in love.

But then there’s Cash, Danny’s roommate. A quiet computer nerd without a clue about the music business, Cash can barely understand the world Danny’s so eager to live in. He certainly doesn’t want to share it.

Even though he knows he shouldn’t, Danny’s unable to resist introducing Cash to the wonders of sex. He didn’t expect to get addicted to Cash’s charms.

Review:

Danny and Cash have been strictly friends and roommates for a while now but when Danny learns of Cash’s inexperience and vehemence that guys don’t want romance, he can’t resist showing Cash just what he’s missing. What Danny thought would just be sex between them turns into so much more when he starts to crave Cash outside the bedroom. But Danny and Cash live two very different lives and Cash is adamant he doesn’t belong in Danny’s. Can Danny convince Cash there’s no one he wants more than the very roommate who doesn’t believe he’s in Danny’s league?

Awwww, these two! My heart couldn’t take it! Gah! They were just so cute and a tad angsty and sweet and hot! I absolutely loved Danny as a character. He’s cocky but he’s also sort of dramatic. He’s not arrogant or rude, he’s actually very sweet, especially when it comes to Cash. He’s a playboy but when he gets involved with Cash, he realizes he’s finally found something he’s wanted for a while now. Cash, on the other hand, is still a bit of an enigma in that beyond knowing he’s scared, confused and a complete computer geek, we don’t know much about him. He grows throughout the story from an awkward boy to a grown man but we don’t get his POV so it was hard to really tell his feelings towards Danny unless he spoke or acted on them.

My biggest issue with this one was the sex! There was just soooo much of it! I LOVED the overall story but I ended up skimming most of the sex because there was a lot of it. I loved Danny and Cash together and they were definitely hot, especially since Cash was so innocent and naive, but it was ultimately just too much for me.

Overall, this was still a great story. I just ADORED Cash and Danny, as individuals and a couple. I loved the uncertainty around their relationship but also the yearning Danny had for Cash. I also liked seeing the Indigo Knights start their rise to fame and seeing more of the Heaven Sent boys. I’m definitely looking forward to the next story in this series, Lance, because he’s definitely an intriguing character!

Overall Impression: I really liked it!

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
