New Release Review ~ Jaxson’s Nemesis by TL Travis

Jaxson’s Nemesis by TL Travis

 

Jaxson Duvall, bass player for the band Maiden Voyage wasn’t born into wealth or fame. He achieved it with hard work and a need to prove himself. To whom, well, that is the million-dollar question right there. When his foolish antics threaten to bankrupt him, it’s time for him to stop acting like a spoiled brat and grow the hell up before his band brothers find a new bassist.

Shephard “Shep” Newsome was the opposite. Thrust into the limelight at birth and cast out damn near the same way. When his indiscretions tarnished his family name, his father said no more. Humiliated, shamed, and shunned, he moved away to begin anew but trouble still seemed to find him. Tired of running, he puts down roots only to find himself right smack in the middle of it once again.

What happens when a Rockstar with more money than brains clashes with his neighbor who has a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas? You have a recipe for disaster… or rage-infused love.

A singing sensation who steals hearts. The wannabe guitarist who worships him. Can true love survive once the tour is over?

Glitter Kink is one of the headlining bands at Rocktoberfest, and Braylin Sinclair can’t believe he’s scored a gig as their guitar tech. He’d rather be their guitarist, but he’ll take what he can get. Plus, how can he resist the opportunity to get up close and personal with Zen Diamond, the flashy singer he’s idolized since he was a kid?

Zen’s reputation as one of the kinkiest rockers on the scene can sometimes overshadow his musical prowess. As the founding member of Glitter Kink, he runs the show. His songs, his rules. The band’s world-wide tour is about to kick-off, however, lately there’s been more ills than thrills.

One night as they’re about to take the stage, everything falls apart. Unless a miracle occurs, the tour will be over and the band’s future in jeopardy. But then a sweet young thing steps up and claims he can save the gig.

Will Zen take a chance on a shy and inexperienced kid? Or will he only allow Braylin to be a star in his bedroom?

After graduating from college, Thiago is ready for some action. Being a virgin at twenty-four sucks, and he’s determined to shed his V-card the second he finds the right man. Just because he’s a different kind of guy, doesn’t mean he can’t find true love, right? No matter how long it takes, Thiago refuses to settle for less. 

With one failed relationship after another, Corrigan is ready to throw in the towel. Why can’t the band’s good juju rub off on his love life? Doesn’t help that he’s infatuated with his fellow guitarist. Those feelings could ruin their chance at being a huge success. 

Right when Burnt Embers embarks on their first tour, everything crumbles. Confusion and anger disrupt the band as Thiago and Corrigan attempt to unravel the meaning behind their intense emotional connection. Even worse, a former nemesis rears his ugly head, attempting to sever the relationship they’ve built.

💗 Rock Star
💗 Opposites Attract
💗 Chasing Dreams

Hitting the big time in Australia isn’t enough. Making it overseas, now that’s on a whole other level.

Rafe Moreno, lead singer of HyperOctane, is on the brink of achieving everything he’s set out to do before his thirtieth birthday. Ten years of hard work and focus is finally paying off. Not that he doesn’t enjoy the rock and roll lifestyle—adoration, parties, men. What’s not to like? Including a hot hook-up with his bandmate’s younger brother. But the most important thing is keeping his eye on the prize at any cost.

Parker Shaw is nothing like his outgoing, super-talented rock star brother, so finding himself on a plane heading to the other side of the world to play guitar with HyperOctane is insane. Who in their right mind would want an ordinary, skinny, red-haired analyst to perform with one of the top bands from Australia?

Rafe’s dream is the big time, not a relationship. The furthest thing from Parker’s mind is trusting his broken heart to anyone again. But what happens on the road, stays on the road, right? Rafe and Parker embark on the rock tour of a lifetime, a tour that will bring a lot more than they expected, because love is a wild card, not something you can plan for.

Wild Card is an opposites attract, forced proximity, rock star romance.

Amazon

Synopsis:

Since the moment he picked up his first guitar, Dez Conway dreamed of being a Rockstar. A multi-talented musician with the ability to play the electric violin, electric cello and even the bass, he’d be an asset to any group of musicians, if only the bands who’d hired him over the years had truly thought that way. Instead, he’s singing for the dishes in an upscale restaurant, bitter, pissed off and unwilling to entertain the offer to replace the front man of the world-famous Deviant Angels because why the hell would they be any different than the guys who’d kicked him to the curb in the past?

Only…they’re not the Deviant Angels, their longtime front man took the name with him when he left, along with their hopes of getting back out on the road again and playing the music they love. Of course, a talented musician like Dez could change all of that for them, if they can convince him that this time, his dreams of rock stardom, and love, can actually come true.

What’s better than having your rock idol, Dagger Drummond be the mentor for your band? Having your band selected as one of the performing acts at the iconic music festival, Rocktoberfest.

My band was about to step onto our first professional stage. We’d more than earned our spot in the lineup. We had the talent and Dagger groomed our stage swagger. All that was left was to wow the socks off of the audience.

It should be easy, except I had major anxiety issues and it’s frowned upon when lead singers collapse on stage from panic attacks. Another detail adding to my anxiety level, I recently fell in love with a man. Imagine that, a straight guy falling for a dude. It’s the stuff stories are made of – and yet it’s my life.

Rocktoberfest was supposed to be fun but our trip turned sour when my guy went AWOL. Now my concentration is shot and my is heart heavy thinking his absence might have more to do with him not wanting to be with me than missing the bus. One way or another, I had to give the performance of my career – regardless of what was going on inside my head or my heart.

For Maiden Voyage lead vocalist, Derek Masters, life has had its fair share of ups and downs.  Most recently, almost losing his best friend and lead guitarist, Ryder Hampton while they were on the road. They’ve just come off a whirlwind European tour and have a few weeks of R&R before hitting Rocktoberfest in Nevada this fall.

While Derek’s looking forward to time with his family, the loneliness of living in his big, empty house suffocates him. Seems rest isn’t always what one needs. For Derek, he’s a natural caregiver, always wanting to help others. Even when it’s not in his best interest.

Logan Bell has wanted to be a teacher since playing school in his backyard with his childhood friends. He loves to nurture young minds, and teach them the necessary skills in ways they can grasp and retain it. Never for a moment did he think that gift would be turned on him.

Can two souls who feel the need to be there for everyone, find a way to be there for themselves? Or will their hopes and dreams all be washed away by rushing floodwaters in a monsoon storm?

Maiden Voyage, Book 1

For Maiden Voyage guitarist, Ryder Hampton, life is great. He and his bandmates are embarking upon an epic European double headlining tour with their friends from Social Sinners with the band Embrace the Fear opening for them.

Since joining Maiden Voyage in his twenties, Ryder’s life has been a whirlwind of the cliched, “Sex, drugs and monumental doses of Rock ‘n Roll. And he’s loved every minute of it from the sold out shows to the revolving door of bed partners.

Max Hightower has always been a team player. Whether it was working with his team in the Marines or now with the private security company, Ventura Security. These days, his job was to have the backs of a band of musicians. One band member in particular he’d allowed to get too close and now emotions were involved.

Ryder Hampton had left his mark on Max’s closed-off heart and now Max’s job was in jeopardy. Falling for your principal wasn’t safe – nor smart. Neither was missing the mark on protecting him and now Max was guilty of both. The security detail he’d begged his boss for had turned out to be the one that could ruin him and shatter his heart too. Max couldn’t allow either option to happen.

Even beauty sometimes has an evil lurking beneath.” Over the years her nickname for me, my little one, was shorted to Mio.
