Another wonderful story for the Tempest band mates. Sager is definitely my favorite. He was always the strong silent type when he appeared in the previous novels, and that remained true here. But when he speaks, he’s almost poetic. He speaks truth and wisdom. Having grown up in a family with a bad and violent reputation, it’s surprising what a gentle person he is. His heart is so big and pure. He still has a temper, but he keeps it under control when he’s not using it to his advantage when it’s needed.
The brotherly bond he has for King and the loyalty he has for their friendship as well as for the band is so strong. Having known what it’s like to not have a family, he doesn’t take the closeness the band has for granted. And what he feels for Melinda is something he will hold on to and fight for. Even if Melinda is the one to get in their way. He sees her in a light that no one else does, not even her, and will do whatever it takes so that they do.
I loved him. He was dreamy and deep and sexy and kind hearted and talented. Not only was he a talented musician but an amazing artist. And I don’t think Melinda deserved him. She already left a bad taste in my mouth after what she did during April and Dizzy’s story. I came in to this book not liking her one bit. It took a while for me to warm up to the idea of her, but I saw her growth. Over time, she began to mature and since I can live within the pages of this book, I’ll let her have him.
I understand her now. Had she not gotten this story, I wouldn’t have. She’s spent her whole life seeking approval. Her dad wasn’t the most loving parent and she did the things she did to get the attention she so desperately wanted. Sager was the one to help her see what she couldn’t. And Mary Timmons, the record label exec? She’s an enigma. She gets beat for her heavy handedness but she’s so much more than what she portrays. I’m hoping that eventually she gets her own happy ending. She deserves one.
This was a great story and has taken the spot of favorite in this series.
HE SEES HER IN A WAY SHE COULD NEVER SEE HERSELF
