One girl’s heart gets rocked to the core in the first novel in this sexy New Adult series.
Twenty-one-year-old front girl Emmylou knows that getting her band noticed in the ‘90s indie rock scene will be no easy task. She definitely knows better than to break the number one rule of the band: Don't sleep with your bandmates! But after she ends up having the best sex of her life with her guitarist, Travis, she finds following that rule is a lot harder than it sounds.
When the band gets the gig of their dreams, making it big seems just within reach. But Emmy’s inability to keep her hands off Travis threatens everything they’ve worked for. Can Emmy find a way to break the rules and not blow the chance of a lifetime?
Emmylou has wanted to be in a successful rock band ever since she can remember and her band Stars on the Floor (aka Soft) is so close to making a breakthrough. She can’t afford to take her eye off the prize or to finally give in to the uncontrollable attraction to her guitar player, Travis Bean.
They have been through so much together and she can’t imagine what her life or her music would be like without him. There’s a golden rule in rock and roll. NEVER sleep with the lead guitar player. But Emmy has never been one to follow the rules.
“It’s not that I don’t have feelings for Travis. It’s really not that at all. It’s that after two years in Soft, my feelings for Travis transcend your average boy-meets-girl kind of situation. It’s not just a tingle I feel when he’s near, a bounce in my step. We’re well past that already (okay, I did feel pretty tingly when he walked in the door at Neubies today). Travis is my guitarist and there’s a thing between us that is difficult to translate for someone who hasn’t been in this kind of situation. Writing music is personal, intimate even, and you have to be pretty comfortable to be able to do it with other people. When you find someone you work this well with, it’s rare and special and it’s more than friendship. I know this sounds dumb, but it’s kind of like finding a unicorn. If you found a unicorn, you would take care of it, protect it. You’d keep it safe. You definitely wouldn’t fuck it, right?”
Travis has watched as Emmy became one of the best lead singers on the circuit. She’s totally focused and totally determined that their band makes it big. The feelings that he has for her have always been there right under the surface and now that he’s held his dream in his arms – he’s not about to let her go.
But as Emmy fights to keep Travis at arm’s length for the sake of her band, will she end up losing them both in the end?
Loud is how I love you
Mercy Brown knows her music! Loud is How I Love You is one of the most authentic rock and roll romances that I’ve ever encountered. Her characters were adorably unrestrained as they were down right frustrating. But that's just what you would expect from true lovers and poets.
This is a story about friendship, perseverance and daring to take a chance. And now I even want a Sharpie tattoo of my very own…
