Rock star Chad Evans’s tortured past hides just beneath the surface. Even fans screaming out his name in ecstasy can’t drown out the screams of his childhood. He can usually keep it under control, but not always. Tonight the alcohol doesn’t seem to soothe. Part of the crowd, Beth Donovan smiles, really enjoying herself for a change. But her smile isn’t usually this bright. It is the kind of smile that masks sorrow. Three years just isn’t long enough to get over losing Paul. When a vicious attack behind stage brings this unlikely pair together, something changes inside of them both. But can a jet-setting superstar and a Midwestern lunch lady ever manage a real relationship? And even if they can, will the person sending Chad death threats take it all away? Or is it their fate to remain forever trapped under ice?
I LOVED this book! I wasn’t sure how the romance with a woman my age and a rock star would go but let me tell you that M.J. knows what she is doing.
Beth has been a fan of Trapped Under Ice for a long time and when her daughter, Cassie surprises her with tickets, she is stoked. After the concert, the two women are attacked in the restroom and Chad Evans, lead singer and knight in scruffy armor, comes to the rescue. The attraction between them is like lightening but Beth still feels like she is mourning the loss of her husband, Paul.
This was not an easy story and the twists and turns in their relationship, friends and family kept me glued to the pages. I love how M.J. was able to draw out each emotion and play it out so you could see how it affected the ones involved. I love that Beth was a lunch lady, who happened to write as well. She showed a real passion for her work and didn’t feel like it was beneath her. I look forward to more books from this author and hope she comes back to join us here at Romancebookworm’s Reviews!
