After fifteen years on the road, rock singer Saul Wilder doesn’t know if he remembers how to stay in one place. While healing from a vocal cord injury, he decides to restore the cozy but neglected Atlanta home his grandmother left him. When home renovation specialist Perry Abrams arrives to assess the job, Saul’s on board with mixing business with a little pleasure. The sex is scorching hot, but the more they learn about each other, the deeper they fall emotionally as well. Trouble is, Saul’s a traveling man and Perry’s a homebody, so finding common ground to share could put the brakes on their relationship before it has a chance to get started.

My View:

Shae Connor is another new to me author, and what better way to get introduced to a new author than reading a novella ?

And this ticked all my boxes, I really like a rock star story, especially if teamed with an unlikely love interest (think librarian/ teacher) and I read it in one sitting .

For a short book Connor does pack a a lot in, and without losing a lot of depth , this is helped by T+G really only being about the MC’s, focusing on the now and by not over detailing so that you feel in the moment.

I liked the comparison between Perry renovating not just Saul’s house by Saul himself, and how (mainly) sweet and open they were with each other. Normally I’m not a fan of the Big Misunderstanding to bring things to a head but because of the short length of the book, and in fact the reasoning behind it. it worked here.
