Who He Is (FireNine, #1)


Blurb:

Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She’s never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she’ll begin to truly despise.
She’ll ignore him, she’ll dislike his ways, she’ll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in. She agrees on a casual fling with Gage, but soon they’ll both see how the fling will blur into something they can’t control and when it’s finally time for Eliza to go and accomplish her own dreams, she’ll know there’s more she took from Gage than she ever thought possible.


Natalie's Review

WOWZERS!!!!!!! oh my freaking golly gosh what a scorcher of a book, I freaking loved it!!!

OK lets start at the beginning,  Eliza is a 21 yr old who has had a really tough start in life, She isnt wanting a relationship, she just wants to get through the summer touring with the band her dad manages and go off to college when its over.

The problem with this is the band is FireNine and the lead singer is Gage Grendel,  Eliza has had a crush on him since high school,  But Gage isnt the type of guy you want to fall inlove with,  he sleeps with anything with a pulse.

At the start of the story Eliza is quite childish,  this is maybe because she has never had a boyfriend but as the story goes on we see her blossoming and she handles her feelings about Gage quite mature.

Which leads me onto Gage OHHHHHHHH BOOOOOY that guy OOOOOZES sex appeal,  he is the biggest Slut in rock and deffinately has some roll's allong the way.  You instanly know there is more to him than is let on but it takes a while for you to see it,  in some scenes you instantly think that Gage is a dick,  but it also makes him more appealing.

I honestly loved everything about this book,  i didnt want it to end, and what a freaking effing cliffhanger arrrggghhh i have the BIGGEST BOOK HANGOVER EVER!!!!!!!! two days later and i still cant stop thinking about it

i give this book a MASSIVE ROCK SOLID 5 ROCK STARS

Alicia's Review

HO-LY-SHIT!! This book is Fan-freaking-tastic! Hot sexy rockstar with a heart? YES PLEASE!
Gage is one hot arrogant piece of ass! He's a character you will love and hurt for and at the same time want to smack him upside his head. I loved Gage from the start, even when he was all for the groupies and I wanted the HEA.

It really seemed like everything was going to work out perfectly then I had my heart ripped out. I felt the pain they both feel. Gage finally opens up about his life and is ready to be the real him but Eliza AKA Ellie, knows she has to follow her dreams. Even if that means forgetting the dream she had years before.

Ellie annoyed me at times. I felt a little like she walked around with her eyes closed and wasn't paying attention to things staring her in the face. The connection to the characters is great. You will feel their feelings and pain. You will laugh along with them. You will more than likely cry.

Gage, OH GAGE! I would have made a different choice than Eliza did. I know she has things in life she wants to get over and she wants to become the best she can. However, she wants to make it alone and not take the help being offered. I understand why she chooses the way she does but in order to do it her way, she has to lose the one thing she's always wanted to get it.

We see the strength that Ellie has and what she's willing to do to help someone else, even if that person hasn't been very nice to her. She is willing to get hurt herself to stop pain being brought to another person. She is strong and brave.

Gage is Hot in the sheets. He's Hot on the stage and he's HOT AS HELL period!

This book is ACE. I truly didn't want it to end. I wanted more. I can't wait for book 2 to see how their story continues.

5 ROCK AND ROLL STARS!!

 
Excerpt

Grabbing the bar soap, I lathered it over me, my head tilted back in the running water until the bathroom door creaked open. My eyes widened, seeing Gage through the opaque glass door of the shower. His figure was solid, sexy. His strides toward the shower were cautious as he placed the towel on the rod. He was about to turn around, but, surprisingly, I called his name and he stopped, taking a glance over his shoulder. A million thoughts were running through my drunken head. One of them was to tell him thanks… just because. Another was to ask for a kiss. It was odd, but I just wanted to feel him. The last was to tell him to come into the shower with me. “Yeah?” Gage called, turning around. I chewed on my bottom lip, the silence ringing between us. Finally, I asked, “Can you come in with me?” He remained quiet for a few seconds. Through the opaque glass, he was perfectly still. Unmoving. Then, slowly and still quiet, he pulled his shirt over his head. He unbuttoned his jeans, kicked off his shoes, slid out of his boxers and jeans, and then walked toward the shower. My heart raced with each step closer. It raced even more as he grabbed the handle of the shower door and slid it open. He stepped in without looking at me and I stepped beneath the water, as if it were going to hide my naked body. I held the bar of soap against my chest and as soon as Gage slid the shower door shut behind him, his heavy hazel eyes met mine. For the most part, we were quiet. It wasn’t awkward to stare because he had more than enough to stare at and keep me quiet. Although the features of his face were hard, his eyes were tranquil, admiring the naked aspects of my body. My eyes traveled from his face to his broad chest. There was a tattoo of a woman’s name right below his left collarbone, almost where his heart would be. The name was Chloe and was in a flowing script. The dragon on his ribs was defined; the blue and black stood out most. A splash of orange came out of its mouth and its head was tilted up, as if it were burning his armpit. My eyes continued traveling southward until they got to the main attraction. He wasn’t soft. He was hard, probably harder than a rock. I had the urge to grab him, stroke him… maybe even get a taste of him, but I held off, suddenly realizing I was the reason he was getting turned on. Gage finally made the first move. His actions were deliberate, but he was going for it. He cupped my face, taking the soap out of my hand, placing it down, and then pulling my lips to his and kissing me fiercely. I drowned in his touch, my body sinking against his firm upper half. He swallowed my moans and his tongue ran over and slipped beneath mine. His panting increased, his whole body turned rigid. He then picked me up and I had no problem wrapping my legs around him. My back pressed against the cool shower wall, but our lips never parted. Groaning, his head moved down and he licked the droplets off my neck. He kissed and sucked on me tenderly, his arousal digging into me. He was so close to my entrance that it frightened me yet turned me on at the same time. I wanted it more than I realized. My body was yearning, craving for him to just take me there.
