Sex, drugs and rock and roll are all in abundance in this book. This is the first in a series of seven and each written by a different author. Each book is a standalone but if rock and roll is your passion then so will this series.
The first band preparing for their trip to Rocktoberfest is Chaos, a band being mentored by Dagger Drummond of Black Ice. Dagger has taken an interest in making Chaos and their frontman, Harrison Fletcher (Fletch) a huge success and is laying out all the money necessary to do that. Dagger will get reimbursed when Chaos has their first gold record.
Fletch and his best friend (brother by choice) Mike started a band that grew into Chaos with the addition of two more musicians. The only thing standing in the way of their great success is Fletch’s extreme panic whenever in front of a huge group of people. His panic attack could shut down everything they are working for if that happens on the stage at Rocktoberfest. A dream and a nightmare face Fletch.
Fletch meets Dallas who works at setting up and taking down all the props and although Fletch has always assumed he was straight, meeting Dallas gets him to reconsider. Sex was never that important to him and afterwards never that satisfying but it would seem that it wasn’t sex it was gender. It is Dallas that is able to calm Fletch down when he is beginning to lose it but when the trip to Rocktoberfest starts Dallas is nowhere to be found.
When I began reading this book I was trying to get my head around all the drugs, drugs to calm down, drugs to sleep and sex, sex, sex. As I continued to read I realized that this book was probably close to reality and that the rock world is as Ms. Lister described so I had a whole new prospective on what was going on and realized that drugs, sex and rock and roll are alive and well in this book.
