More than his heart is on the line…
Raif Montgomery, lead singer of Renegades, the area’s most popular band, isn’t like other guys. When he gets left at the altar by a woman most men would kill to have, he finds himself more relieved than heartbroken. Things take another twisted little turn when he gets drunk the night of his non-wedding and makes a pass at his best friend, Chloe. She doesn’t shut him down.
Overall, he has plenty to occupy his troubled mind.
His mom is concerned he’s heading for a self-destruct of epic proportions. But all he can think about is tasting Chloe’s lips again, and getting her to agree to give them a shot as a couple. When a Nashville music producer starts hanging around Renegades’ shows, it seems that things are falling into place for the band.
But does he want success for the band if it means leaving Chloe behind? Can he walk away from the woman he loves? Or will he sacrifice the Renegades’ dreams to keep his heart intact?

What a great debut from Lissa Lynn Thomas! I really loved Raif and Chloe. It’s the perfect friends to lovers story that will grab you from page one!
We are introduced to the Renegades – which I’m assuming each of the guys in the band will get their own stories. Raif is the lead singer and best friend to Chloe, their unofficial manager and girl next door.
The book flowed seamlessly and you really feel a part of the characters. The only thing that threw me off was the location in which the characters were from. Their cadence of speech and their all-around mannerisms reminded me of people from the south, not upstate New York. But other than that I loved every bit of the story and can’t wait for Luke’s story next in the Renegades Series!
“You know I don’t want to leave you, right?”
I nod, but still don’t speak. He opens and closes his mouth, runs his fingers through the length of my ponytail. “I love you, Chloe. Say the word and I’ll call Dell right now and take it all back. I’ll stay here with you any day, darlin’. I need you to know that.”
Tears swim in my eyes as I try to force out the words I know I have to say. He can’t do that for me. I’m not worth it. And it’s not fair to the other three. I choke down a sob and he pulls me into his chest. “I love you, too, but you can’t stay now. You gave your word. I thought we’d talked about your white knight tendencies.” My voice is muffled by the soft flannel of his shirt, but he understands.
“Chloe, I’d do anything for you, to hell with the rest of the world.” He says into my hair. His arms are tight around me, holding me against him like I might disappear if he lets go.
