When Harvard Law student, Dylan Ackhart, moves to Boston with her best friend- the last thing she expects to find is Jeremy Mason. Jeremy is sexy, smart, and passionate- and currently the most famous rock star in the world.
From the first moment Dylan meets Jeremy, she’s attracted to him. But she soon finds the fame and press can wear on you. Plus, Jeremy seems to be hiding things from her- including his relationship with the mysterious blue-haired girl.
Tracks takes you on a ride through the not so glamorous side of dating a rock star- sex, drugs, rock and roll.
I make a disgusted sound in my throat. “I am totally fucked up by what my mother did to me,” I say, still aghast at his reaction to my story.
“Fucked up?” he questions, confused. “Why? Because you’re shy? Because you’re private? Because you don’t like to be vulnerable? Because you strive to achieve great things to prove you’re good enough to be worth something?”
The way he instantly knows me makes me very uncomfortable. I freeze, wide eyed and unable to speak for a moment. How could he see me so clearly? How did this connection between us go so deeply? It was disturbing to me, the understanding between us. It’s deeper than even the physical pull between us, as if the air that separates our bodies is electrically charged. I had worked my whole life to push people away, building up this wall of protection. And yet here is this man, tearing it down and seeing who I am through all the bullshit. Maybe I’m not as good at hiding myself as I thought.
“Yeah,” I finally muttered. “Those reasons are pretty much why.”
“It makes you beautiful. The things you say it created in you… are what attract me to you in this unbelievable way. You’re timid, shy, brilliant, and completely unaware of how amazing you are.”
I go statue still. My heart feels like it’s going to explode at his words. How did our conversation change course so quickly? I don’t know if I’m prepared for this. “Amazing?” I repeat in disbelief.
He smiles a catlike smile, like he’s hunting again. Immediately, my breathing increases. “Oh yes. When I first saw your eyes from the stage,” he leans closer to me. I want to both back away and lean toward him at the same time. “I wanted to make them roll back into your head. I wanted to grab your round hips and pull you close to me.” He crouches on the couch, one leg on and one leg off, leaning over me. With his face against my cheek again, he whispers in my ear, “You. Are. Breathtaking.”
OMG! I have a new favorite Rocker and his name is Jeremy Mason! Holy hot mess! Even with everything that is wrong with him – Dylan is one lucky girl.
Dylan and her best friend Therese are moving to Boston to attend Harvard Law school in the fall. As a house warming gift, Therese’s parents give the girls front row seats to see super rock god – Jeremy Mason. Dylan is not impressed with they guy, until an accident sends her backstage and there is a instant connection between the two.
What I really loved about this story is that is seems real. There is no fair tale to this one. Yes, Jeremy is a hot mess. Yes, Dylan is torn (but not in a whiny, whoa is me kinda way). She loves Dylan, but they each have their own demons to slay. And although another guy enters the scene – the drop dead gorgeous Scott, I love that Dylan stays true to Jeremy and there is no awkward love triangle thing going on. (Sorry I know a lot of you like them – but I kinda find them ridiculous) The only thing wrong with this story was it was short and it leaves you kinda hanging…and for that I give it a 4.5 Star rating. I am on pins and needles for Trials!
