Some skeletons are better left in the closet.
Steven Sharpe is on the road to recovery. After boozing, drugging, and sex with just about anything that moved, he’s making a comeback. Age is only a number, right? Why should he hang up his mic and guitar at thirty-seven when hard rock music needs a shot in the arm? And with his powerful voice, Steven figures he’ll have no problem regaining the adulation he once embraced as the lead singer of StarHaze.
Despite all the crazy, fun times from back in the day, one night will forever be emblazoned in his mind—the moment he fucked up his chance at love.
Driven and determined, Noah James is quickly climbing the corporate ladder. At twenty-eight, he’s been promoted to junior partner and has finally gained his peer respect. Though Noah still gets crap for being a gay black man, he doesn’t allow that to deter him from fulfilling his goal of being the only James man graduate college and build a successful career. But the past has a way of sneaking up when he least expects it and biting him in the ass.
Ten years ago, Noah and Steven were strangers at a run-down bar with their only connection being a song. When they’re thrown together again by chance, neither of them is prepared for the roller coaster of emotions they can no longer deny. Now, the two men must face the truth that while love is a fierce emotion, so is fear.
My Rating - 5 Stars!
Starf*cked is a fantastic second chance romance about a rock star and a fan by BL Morticia.
Ten years ago, Steven was a rock star diva, living on drugs, alcohol and sex. What no one knew at the time was that he was living this way to escape the pain of being closeted. One night, a bathroom hookup with a fan forever changes Noah's life, as he can't forget Noah and the connection they made. Noah also can't forget. Not only was he Steven's biggest fan, he also felt that amazing connection.
Now, Steven's clean and trying to get back into making music, despite his health issues. And what he wants is to find Noah, as he's the one that got away.
This story is wonderful! I love second chance stories, and this one checks all the boxes for me. They are a great couple, who just understand one another so well. When they re-unite, they still have a long road to travel if they want to be together. They must face racism, homophobia, trust issues and logistical issues.
Steven may have been an ass in the beginning, but now he's one of the most romantic men ever. And Noah, well, you can't help but to fall in love with Noah. He's sweet, honest and so damn loving!
BL Morticia writes this compelling story with compassion, inspiration and effectiveness. Starf*cked is an emotional journey that is well worth the ride.
