Honestly, I was not familiar with the old saying that opens the synopsis but A) I see the point B) I can’t possibly know all the old sayings. C) You know me and my partiality to musicians so I don’t know why you’re surprised. D) I like the angle of the music journalist. It’s different from the (usual) fan, or the complete not-a-clue-who-you-are stranger. I like it!
Your Rhythm by Katia Rose (Sherbrooke Station, #1) was out a few days ago in the Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance genre.
You know what they say: save a snare, bang a drummer.
Kay Fischer is well aware of what they say, and she intends to ignore it completely.
After her first step into the world of music journalism ended with a screw-up so royal it deserved a crown, Kay’s been struggling to re-stack the building blocks of her career. Salvation comes in the form of Sherbrooke Station, the latest alt-rock craze to grace Montreal’s legendary music scene.
A front page feature on the band everyone’s talking about seems like a foolproof shot at success, even after Kay meets their drummer. Matt Pearson might have a smile sexy enough to be the eighth deadly sin and a passion for music so powerful it makes her heart ache, but Kay’s got things under control.
She’s a professional, goddammit, and a professional would not get tongue-tied over a source, even a source who’s a six-foot, tattooed rock god with an affinity for tight jeans.
A professional would not find herself opening her door at an hour long past midnight to pull said source inside and lead him to her bed.
No, that’s not at all what a professional would do.
We must seem like idiots right now, like we don’t deserve any of this, but I want to show her that’s not true. I want to show myself it’s not true. I think of Kyle talking to his class about me. He deserves someone worthy of that honor.
I can’t leave the room without making Kay understand why we got this band together in the first place.
“We get back up there,” I tell her, leaning forward so the microphone picks up every word, “because nothing else is worth it if we can’t. You could cut off both my arms and rip out Ace’s vocal cords. You could break all of Cole’s fingers. You could burst JP’s eardrums, and we’d still crawl our way back on that stage. For us, that’s all there is. This band is who we are.”
I swear I see her tremble.
Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
