-You can’t hide the cracks under the spotlight-
Dusk. Leader of The Underdogs. Destined for greatness. Lives in the now.
Abe. AKA Lolly. Iridescent. Unicorn.
All Dusk wants out of life is for his band to become world famous. He also wants to have a lot of fun along the way. And to get his rocks off. When he wants something, he goes for it, consequences be damned.
So when he sees a gorgeous pink-haired guy who is the human equivalent of tattooed cotton candy, he can’t help but have a taste. But it’s when Lolly ends up on their tour bus that Dusk knows their meeting was destiny.
Abe is the kind of guy who goes with the flow. He was hitchhiking anyway, so why not spend the week with a hot piece of rocker beefcake, getting smothered by his sexy long hair? And why not play the part of the supportive cutie while he’s at it? It’s not like he’d be sticking around for long anyway.
All plans hit a wall when photos of Abe and Dusk emerge online, suddenly pushing the band into the spotlight. To take advantage of the sudden popularity, the band offers Abe money for staying.
Which means money for being in a fake relationship with Dusk.
Which isn’t even fake.
Or is it?
Every time I read the blurb of a KA Merikan’s book it talks to me.
I feel attracted to their synopsis like a moth to the light, so I keep adding them to my shelves. But until now, until Manic Pixie Dream Boy I’d never tried this duo before. This time I’ve gone beyond the interesting blurb and to the whole experience and, let me tell you, what an incredible experience this one has been!
My first book by this authors and, for sure, not my last. I’m kinda obsessed now and I guess this is the beginning of a huge fangirling thing so, Helloo Merikans! You have a new fan in me.
Not a creepy one, promise, just a fan with a healthy obsession…or not…
So now, about the book:
This is the story of Dusk and Abe. Two guys who met in a stop on their way to LA.
They crossed paths (swords too, figuratively speaking) and start a new journey together. This is the story of The Underdogs, a rock band that makes my heart sing, and my panties melt. This is the story of their guitar and lead singer-Dusk- who wants to shine in a competitive and difficult world and a shiny man-Abe aka Lolly- who doesn’t belong anywhere and who is always waiting for an upcoming storm.
Manic Pixie Dream Boy starts directly into the action and with the action I mean taking care of the business, doing the dirty, a filthy encounter in a gas station restroom…That action.
