There is underlying beauty in destruction….

Miah Thade, Finn Reese, and Ritchie Meyer are Resonator, an indie rock band with an edge—best friends turned rock stars, known as the Detroit 3. When Evin Rene appears in their life none of them can deny he belongs with Rez.

They may have named their first album Ruin Porn because people get off on seeing how Detroit went from deeply loved to thoroughly forsaken, but they’re determined to prove that blight isn’t the entire story and blight isn’t always ugly.

Ritchie, Miah, Finn, and Evin take Resonator to a level no one anticipates. But no prosperity comes without sacrifice, and no secret stays hidden without a trail of lies. As Rez’s fame grows, so does the intensity between two of its members…as well as their potential for destruction.

Evin and Finn are about to discover the underlying beauty in their ruin porn.

This cover is simply gorgeous! As soon as I seen it I knew…”This is My City!” I always get a little giddy when I read books that have a connection to Michigan and this book definitely felt like home. Between the cover, the fact the MCs are musicians and the super talented authors who wrote it, I just knew I was gonna love it!

Mich, Finn & Ritchie are Resonator. Rez by the Fans and The Detroit 3 to them. Kevin Rene soon to be known as Evin (not because Miah didn’t know his name wasn’t ‘Evan’ but because Evin without the K fit the rockstar image better) got the chance of a lifetime when he wasn’t asked to join Resonator as a bass player. Now, the Detroit 3+E will not only tear up the stages across the world…they’ll be some tearing up the sheets as well.

This story was anything but basic. It was told from multiple POVs which sometimes drives me batty but it worked so well here. And I got to know right where everyone’s head was at…even if they didn’t. Each MC seemed just as important as the next guy. Ritchie is the mama bear. He just wants to make sure everyones getting along and washing their hands. Evin is the ‘newbie’ and is trying to find just where he fits in with these life long friends. Finn is so laid back, as long as he has a sucker he’s usually ok. Miah is the ‘leader’ of the band and definitely pushes everyones buttons with his ‘I do the most out of all you’ kinda attitude. We the readers are involved in just about everything these guys to while on tour and once they’re back home. It’s fun to see them in the spotlight and behind the scenes along with the highs and the lows…it makes them feel real.

Let me quick touch on the sexin’ cuz I know that this will be an issue for some readers. I personally LOVED how things played out. I loved the threesome fun, I loved the alone time fun. I never seen any of it as being cheated out of more time for just the two of them to be alone together. Neither of them opened their flaps to say they didn’t want him to play with (stubbon/pigheaded men..lol) so he played. I will say tho, that he knew the moment he needed to be scarce and he bailed. That worked for me.

Will there be a book 2? Fuck I hope so! I have to see how Miah ends up dealing with his feelings for a certain someone.

I am an MM kinda girl…gimmie 2, 3 or more guys and I’m one happy lady! I’m a sucker for rockstars and cowboys they definitely make my knees weak. Friends to Lovers, GFY, Age-Gaps and Men in panties are just a few others that I love to read. Basically load me up anything that has a good story & awesome guys who have great chemistry and I’ll be in heaven.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
