When she’s offered the soon-to-be open position she’s been vying for at a swanky advertising agency, there’s only one last summer separating her from dreams of corporate success. Still bitter from catching her boyfriend cheating, she heads out for a night of fun to see her favorite band, Devil’s Garden, but fun turns into utter embarrassment when she insults the enticingly confident lead singer, Van Sinclair.
Van is intrigued by Lexie’s ability to resist his charm and secretly obtains her cell number. Shocked but eager to get to know this captivating rocker, Lexie accepts Van’s invitation to see his next show, which requires an overnight stay. The overwhelming feelings that follow take them both by surprise, and with two months left before starting her sought after new position, Lexie joins the tour. As she’s catapulted into the world of groupies and wild parties, she questions Van’s commitment to her.
So what happens at summer’s end when time runs out?
Ambitious twenty two year old Alexis Waters, everyone calls her Lexie has just recently graduated college with a degree in business and accepted a position with an advertising company to start at the end of summer. Also added into her life she just recently caught her boyfriend cheating on her. To help get her mind off of things Lexie’s friends take her out to see her favorite band, Devil’s Garden a night of fun and meeting the band is what Lexie needs. That is until she meets Van Sinclair and insults him, no way is she going to be sweet talked into sex, no matter how enchanting a rock star he is.
Van Sinclair lead singer of Devil’s Garden, oozes sex appeal, he’s also talented, confident. Van’s not to keen on the Lexie blowing him off, no woman ignores Van Sinclair. With Lexie standing her ground and refusing Van he’s even more determined to have her. Van secretly obtains Lexie cell phone number and decides to make contact to break down her walls little by little.
Lexie finally succumbs to Van and decides to live out a wild fantasy and tour with the band for the summer. She might as well enjoy herself for the summer before real life takes over and she joins the work force. What Lexie was not planning on was for her heart to become involved, she swore off men this was only suppose to be a little fun with Van Sinclair. Developing feelings for Van was not in the cards and her life just became more complicated by all of this. Added to that mix is also a bunch of groupies, and the touring itself can be stressful. What she also was not expecting was Van had falling for her as well, he found someone he could have a serious relationship with and he would do anything from losing her. Van’s become tired of the groupie sluts and one night stands.
“I want you and only you and I want you all to myself. That’s how I feel and exactly what I want.”
Can two people who are complete opposites and come from a different world, make an impossible relationship work?
Will Lexie let Van in her life and learn to trust again, or will she have her heart broken into pieces all over again?
I loved Van he’s not your typical rock god, he was sweet, caring, and a down to earth guy. Lexie at times I wanted to scream at her for her ways, at times she was selfish always putting herself first and a bit whiny. When she finally decided to let her guard down, her softer side appeared and she became the girl you could fall in love with.
Blissful Tragedy is the debut novel for Amy L Gale, I think she did an excellent job. The story has passion, love, turmoil, and also thrown in some sexy rock gods. If your looking for a sweet fun read I would definitely check this one out, another plus it’s a stand alone no awful cliffhangers.
