I love rock and roll. So put another dime in the jukebox baby...

Gasp! - Z.A. Maxfield, Gomez Pugh

I've had this on my TBR list for a while now and when I found that it was on audio while I was wandering the cyber isles of audible.com I decided it was time take another book off of my TBR list and I really enjoyed doing this.


Nigel Gasp is an aging rock star and with 40 fast approaching he's starting to re-evaluate his life because getting old was never part of the plan...the plan was to live hard and fast. But, after one attention getting stunt too many under his belt, Nigel's agent decides that he needs to stay out of the limelight while she's off having a baby so the solution is obvious she recruits her fresh out of the military brother, Jeff to keep the older, yet seemingly less mature Nigel quiet and secluded while she's doing the baby thing. I mean he's fresh out of the military he's seen combat keeping tabs on Nigel should be a piece of cake, right?


Needless to say Nigel and Jeff don't start off on the best footing...I believe there was an icy cold lake involved at one point but Nigel would remember better than I would, lol!!! Jeff and Nigel's develops during some unusual and interesting events and while Nigel seems to be a bit of a diva...he's also very much not what he seems to be and in spite of the fact that these two men seem to be so very different it's Jeff who sees Nigel...truly sees him and comes to love him for who he is.


I really enjoyed this story the interaction between Nigel and Jeff and all the day to day things that fill out the story between them and the secondary characters in the story as both men come to realize what they mean to each other and what it is they really want out of life and from each other.


Gomez Pugh is the narrator on this book and while many of you will recognize him from JCP's 'PsyCop' series he brings a whole new and fresh cast of characters to life in this story and I really enjoyed this one on audio...Nigel and Jeff are a fun pairing set in the crazy and unpredictable world of rock and roll. There's definitely an interesting and unexpected twist in this story that I liked...I'm a fan of Z.A. Maxfield and this one just continues that tradition.
