Come Together

Come Together - Madelynne Ellis This series is so much more than I expected. Come Together follows up the first book, Come Undone, in the Rock Hard Series. These books are full of hot sex, lies, betrayal, drama, well written characters, a rock band, and an unconvientional happy ever after.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. I knew by the end that I had to read the next. Writing about a rock band without sounding cheesy seemed pretty difficult to me. Madelynne Ellis handled this story, adding in just the right amount of sexy, making it look so easy. The characters were so easy to love. I had so much angst, wanting them to communicate their actual needs with each other. Dani and Xane were an unlikely pair. Dani from a prudish religious upbringing. Xane a rock star with a bit of a sexual addiction. This couple works because they complete the missing parts of each other.

Trouble starts brewing as they head out on tour. Dani is not the typical rock star girlfriend and the strain of thousands of screaming fans is something that takes some getting used to. To add insult to injury, Xane begins an affair with Luther and it almost breaks Dani. The scenes between Luther and Xane were enough to make me want to scream at Dani to just let Xane have this. I know the heart can love enough for two. Xane’s sexual appetite means there is more than enough for Dani to get hers, too. Someone is out to drive fear of losing into Dani’s heart, as if she needs more stress. The ending was a bit of a shocker…

Come Together is books two, but it could easily be read as a standalone. Reading book one would just give you more of a back-story of Steve (the former drummer) and how he plays into this relationship. Book two introduces us to Luther, another swoon worthy male. The m/m scenes almost rivaled the m/f scenes for hotness. This was a great read and I highly recommend both of the books from this series. More than just sex Dani and Xane share this undeniable need for each other. I was swept away by this story.
