There’s no resisting the thrum of temptation in this male/male rock-star romance from genre-favorite author Anna Zabo!

Twisted Wishes front man Ray Van Zeller is in one hell of a tight spot. After a heated confrontation with his bandmate goes viral, Ray is hit with a PR nightmare the fledgling band so doesn’t need. But his problems only multiply when they snag a talented new drummer—insufferably sexy Zavier Demos, the high school crush Ray barely survived.

Zavier’s kept a casual eye on Twisted Wishes for years, and lately, he likes what he sees. What he doesn’t like is how out of control Ray seems—something Zavier’s aching to correct after their first pulse-pounding encounter. If Ray’s up for the challenge.

Despite the prospect of a glorious sexual encore, Ray is reluctant to trust Zavier with his band—or his heart. And Zavier has always had big dreams; this gig was supposed to be temporary. But touring together has opened their eyes to new passions and new possibilities, making them rethink their commitments, both to the band and to each other.

Syncopation is rock star romance with two amazing protagonists and a bunch of really amazing secondary characters and set in a beautifully glamorous world. The book is entertaining and really captured my interest right from the first page.

Ray and Zavier are two well crafted characters who are completely different as night and day. Their dynamics and they way they compliment each other comes across right from the first page. I loved that they both were really complex and had more to them than what we thought of. I loved how the author explored their chemistry. I also came across something new in the book that I have not read before which I found really interesting and I loved the way the author crafted that into the story. The author has mixed all the elements in a right way to create a story that is entertaining, enthralling and will give you a beautiful reading experience. The secondary characters are also noteworthy as they contributed well to the progression of the story.

Syncopation is a beautiful story set in the rock music world and is worth the read.
