At least the format of this one’s different, so I guess it continues our theme of different. It’s the second book in a series, although the first and it looks like the third have nothing to do with Rock Fiction.

Here’s the storyline:

The long-awaited follow-up novel to the runaway New York Times bestseller Just One Night—which Publishers Weekly gave a starred review and proclaimed, “Davis skillfully creates an uplifting story in which sex is presented both as freedom and as a metaphor for power, and where raw chemistry is the clear winner over bland complacency.”

In the instant international sensation Just One Night, sensible Kasie Fitzgerald unleashed her passions—and found herself—through an explosive affair. In Just One Lie, we meet Kasie’s wild and tortured sister, whose impulsivity and lack of self-control has set off a chain of events that changes her family forever.

Melody Fitzgerald is the opposite of the “perfect” daughter. The lead singer of an indie rock band, she is impulsive and creative, with a rebellious streak that both defines her and becomes her greatest enemy. Her lover, the enticing and unpredictable Ash, shares her free spirit and penchant for trouble. On the face of it, he seems to be her perfect match.

So why is she so drawn to her soft spoken, reliable drummer, Brad Witmer? How can a man who wears polo shirts and reads the financial section of the paper be of any interest to her at all? And why on earth does someone like that appear to be so captivated by her?

Before she knows it, Melody finds herself on a path of self-discovery, passion, and affairs of the heart. But will a dark secret from her past derail it all? Or will its exposure be the very thing that unburdens her heart and allows her to seek a future with the one man who loves her completely?

I like that the female love interest is the wild child and the singer. I’ve read criticism about there not being enough women rockers in the Rock Fiction world. Yes, men definitely dominate. But are there enough women? That’s for you to decide.

Beyond that, though, this kinda ticks the boxes off, doesn’t it?

But the first book sure good some good reviews. And I like the idea of someone with no self-control as the heroine. They can be hard to like because we have more sense than they do, so you’re reading and it’s all uggg…. really?

So I want to see how Kyra Davis pulls off this sort of lead. I want to see why the first got such high marks. And I want to see if the execution rises above the kinda typical plot.
