Rock, Rattle and Roll (Lost in Oblivion #1.5) by Taryn Elliott and Cari Quinn
Loving in fast forward...
Love on the fast track has been the definition of Harper and Deacon McCoy's relationship. In between studio sessions with Deacon's band, Oblivion, and building a new clientele for Harper's catering business, the newlyweds haven't had time to sleep let alone have a honeymoon.
Deacon convinces Harper that they need a week alone together before her business as well as a new album and tour swallows them whole. Since Texas has always held special meaning for them, they head to Galveston to recharge and remember what it's like to just be a couple.
A beachfront cottage, hours of alone time, and plenty of skin on skin action is just what the rock star ordered. Until the future once again comes much quicker than they expected, threatening to crumble not only their perfect honeymoon but also their brand new marriage.
This novella gives us a quick and flirty peek into Harper and Deacon's life post-matrimonial bliss. After getting settled back into life, they finally sneak away for a beach-side honeymoon. Their week is full of passion, completely rocking the hot sex these two have been known for, but its the emotional connection that the couple is still working on that makes this novella so good. When they hit a potential roadblock, there's definite conflict until they come to realize the gift they've actually been given. It's okay to move in fast forward, even if it freaks you out.
The only trouble I had with the plot was the time sequencing. For example, they'd leave the bar where they'd seen JP and then return a few hours later to be told it was her day off. I don't usually care about that stuff but it stood out a few times. Maybe that's a difficult thing to control with two writers. I don't know but I do know... it wouldn't keep me from reading more about Oblivion.
