Blurb: Can love be found in seven minutes?
Heavy metal singer Stone Manson never acknowledged his attraction to men. But when he meets sexy cross-dresser Devon at a party and spends Seven Minutes in Heaven with him, he can’t deny his reaction. His confusion leads him to mess up—big time—with Devon, but after some soul-searching, Stone decides to do whatever it takes to show Devon he’s worth the risk.
Devon’s got a thing for hot, tattooed rock stars—just not the sexually conflicted and closeted ones. Stone’s persistence has Devon warming up to the idea of the singer in his bed, and maybe even in his life, until a threat emerges from Devon’s past. Now it’s Devon’s turn to trust Stone or both their lives could be in jeopardy.
Review: If you’re like me and love to read a story featuring a rocker bad boy, then this is the book for you. I didn’t know what to expect as this is the first book I’ve read by Grace Kilian Delaney but I was pleasantly surprised.
Stone Mason is a heavy metal singer, though despite being tattooed he really isn’t a rocker bad boy at heart. In fact when he first started the band with his best friend, he was a somewhat dorky looking kind of teen. On a brief break from touring he meets Devon at a party. Stone has never truly thought that he was gay or bi until he meets Devon (this is definitely not a gay for you, more a self discovery type story). Devon is definitely gay and a cross dresser. The two of them click instantly and the chemistry between them is burning hot from the start. I found that the terminology was really well dealt with. In a book that is so short I was concerned that either too big a deal would be made of their sexualities and preferences, or it would only be glossed over.
The only note of warning I have to give, even though it is clear from the title, there is some degree of insta-love, though Stone does screw up that first night with Devon and does need to work to gain Devon’s attention again.
