Notes of the Past (Lightning Strikes #2) by Jodie Larson

I love women. And it's easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country's hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don't do complicated. Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That's when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I've ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn't just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I've built? We're connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

I swooned.  I really did swoon.  

It's not a secret that I love rock stories.  Like as in rock stars.  Not rocks.  That would be a geology book, wouldn't it?  I'm not a geologist.  Although I am a gemologist.  That's a true story.  And I like diamonds.

Oh, sorry about that tangent.

Took me a little time to find Jodie Larson, but now that I have, she's stuck with me.  Be forewarned.

So about the book.

Myles.  Good fucking God he was a douchebag at times.  And at several points in time I seriously questioned Jodie's ability to make me like this egotistical dick.  Then it just flips.  I can't even say exactly when or where, but it just clicks.  All falls into place and I was like "OHHHH" with the forehead slap and everything.

Tatum.  Well she is a piece of work at times.  Run, run, run.  Run somewhere.  I almost bought her a pair of Nike racers. (Have you seen the flyknit ones?  Those are seriously awesome running shoes.)  But... just like Myles.... I had the "OHHHH" moment again and was like "hmmm, okay, I get where you're going now, girl.

Then there are the side characters.  Which I seriously loved all of them.  They are fun, they add to the story.  And yeah... definitely going to be a story on each one of them.  

The plot was fun, angsty, aggravating, nerve-wracking.  

This was true entertainment and just enough twists to churn the Wendy's I had for dinner and give me the swoony, toe curling romance love story that I love. (That's a lotta love.). I'll be coming back for more.  Wendy's and Jodie.
