Emotional and heart wrenching. This last part to Cassy and Frank’s story ripped me apart. The sizzling love story that unfolded in the first part of this duet is turned upside down as the lovers struggle to find their footing after Frankie’s comeback doesn’t go as planned. I was gutted by the angst and emotion of the broken rock star coming to terms with his new reality while going off the rails. Cassy was a marvel even as her world is falling apart. Gone is the titillating romance between the young, optimistic journalist and the captivating, aging rock star. What’s left are two broken people…him by his physical limitations and her by his actions. Gut wrenching histrionics play out as Cassy fights for their relationship and Frank just wants to be Frankie again. It’s painful, sad and sometimes brutal as these two fight for something that seems unattainable. The reveal at the end will cause little hearts to flutter but I didn’t think it was authentic. I couldn’t see how the secret could have been kept from Cassy. It was heart warming and the gooey moment in the story though. Adrenaline prequel and the Encore bonus. Solid secondary characters in band mate Dante, Cassy‘s younger brother, Ashton (I wish he would get his own story) and the fabulous Isabella. No one writing a rock star like this author. The portraits of Frankie and Dante, a rock and roll writing duo and best friends of twenty years, and all the triumphs and betrayals is just brilliant. I liked their story as much as I did Cassy and Frank’s. Another fantastic story from Ms. Britt and a fitting end to this rock and roll romance.
