Broken Neon

Country music singer, Zane Alexander has struggled to keep his sexuality a secret, but hiding his attraction to their new guitarist, Finn Presswood, is damn near impossible.
On the run from a dangerous ex-lover, Finn has secrets of his own, but his feelings for Zane isn’t one of them.
When the new song they co-wrote leads to a recording contract with a major Nashville label, it becomes clear that their lives are about to change. Unfortunately, secrets are harder to hide in the limelight, so Zane fake-dating a famous supermodel whose career is on the line as well, seems like the best solution for everyone.
Their dreams are finally within their grasp until Finn’s past catches up, and no matter how much the two men love each other, happiness is never guaranteed.
If good intentions pave the road to hell, then broken neon paves the road to Nashville.

Excerpt #1- PG
The running water in the bathroom stopped, and after a few seconds, the door opened.
Finn swallowed hard as Zane emerged shirtless, a white towel wrapped around his waist, and his hair, dripping wet. Water beaded across his chest and torso, and the splotchy, fresh from the shower look of his skin made the man even sexier, as if that were possible.
“Sorry. I would have been dressed earlier, but there was something wrong with the shower so I had to have them come take a look.” Zane reached for a smaller towel draped across the foot of his bed and began to dry his hair.
“Nah, man.” Finn’s fingers twitched at his side, itching to touch. “Glad you got it fixed.”
Zane cast a cocky smile. “This doesn’t make you nervous, does it?”
“No.” Finn licked his lips as he eyed Zane’s glistening muscles. “It makes me want to see more.” No sense in lying.
Zane’s smile grew wider, and the pink tinge to his cheeks darkened. “Now I feel like a prick tease.”
Finn drew in a deep breath. “Somehow I doubt you’re the teasing type.”
“You got me there.” Zane chuckled as he grabbed a pair of black basketball shorts also laid out on the bed. With one thumb, he released the towel tucked around his waist allowing it to fall to the floor.

Answer my question in the comment section for a chance to win (be sure to include your email address):
* Your choice of an Amazon Kindle Fire HD or Kobo Arc 7
* $100 Amazon GC
* $50 Evernight GC
* My blog prize: a digital copy of any title from Tyler Robbins' backlist!! 

Question: Broken Neon is the song Finn and Zane write together. It becomes a #1 Hit Single and is more about their life together than about the music industry. 

Are you the romantic type? If so, what would you like your partner to say or do to show you how they feel? 
Or better still ... what would get you nekkid and ready for some lovin'?

Hop to the next stop!

  1. Have no clue. He should to find out first in what kind of mood I am at the time.

  2. he'd have to understand me well enuff to be able gauge my mood at the time and go w/ it

  3. Depends on the guy and the situation, but I like to know he's tuned in to me and not some one-size-fits-all cliche of what women like...

  4. Come up to me and give me the kiss felt around the world. Then I most definitely would get naked with him lol.

  5. something that is totally in tune with whatever is going on at that particular moment in time

  6. No, not really

  7. soft sweet kisses

  8. If he sees me crying, I want him to say " Whose a** am I kicking today". That would make me smile and feel loved.

  9. Nope, not the romantic type. What gets me in the mood? Feeling well rested and appreciated (so he helps around the house...properly- throwing stuff in the closet doesn't do it) with him wearing my favorite casual clothes and tempting me with some "soft sweet kisses" as Jean MP mentions.

  10. Start by rubbing my shoulders while nibbling on my ear and telling me what he wants to do to me. Great excerpt by the way. lavidabrisco(at)yahoo(dot)com

  11. Slow and deep kisses gets me int he mood.

  12. I'm the romantic type. I still wear the necklace my hubby got me for our 1st Valentine together. Little things mean the most, so making time to be together is important.

  13. Congrats on all of your success! Being held. Its romantic and heavy petting follows! Thank you for the fantastic hop!

  14. I like romance! Any little thing counts with me,... opening doors, holding my hand, cuddling up on the couch watching movies,... dont just tell me you love me, show it to me. Kisses for no reason, flowers, go out to dinner, sitting & watching the sunset. I don't need fancy things. =)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Take care & I hope you have a great day! =)
