Secret Confessions: Backstage – Josh (Novella)
An all-access pass to Sex, Love, and Rock'N'Roll. Because what happens on tour doesn't always stay on tour... From Australia to the world... Chicago. The last stop of their wildly successful US tour sees Australia's biggest rock band The Screaming Tuesdays in sultry, summertime Chicago to play two sold-out shows. But the stage is not where the action is, and no one knows what goes on behind the scenes... There are implied benefits to the security manager role, but Josh has been on the job a long time, and fangirls willing to do whatever it takes to get backstage just don't do it for him anymore. Except tonight. And that one brunette. She probably wants nothing more than to bang a drummer, but Josh can't seem to find it in himself to care. He's going to take whatever it is that she offers, for as long as she's offering, and he's not going to let his pride get in the way...
A love that breaks all the rules... Since her first day at work, Beth Graison has been in love with Dean Sutherland—the "Son" in Sutherland & Son. Although he's an unrepentant player, there's an unmistakable connection between them, and she knows he feels it too. But she's not about to risk her career for any man, especially one with an office right down the hall whom she works with every day. Dean Sutherland doesn't do love, but he does do women. And he hasn't felt more than sexual attraction for any woman until Beth. Entirely feminine, smart, and with a natural beauty beyond compare, she makes him think about all kinds of uncomfortable things—like a future and happiness—things he knows from experience are pure fiction. When his father, the "Sutherland" in Sutherland & Son, propositions Beth to be more than just an employee, Dean can't keep her at arm's length any longer. But he doesn't expect the scorching kiss they share, or the idea that forms when he holds her in his arms. Can he stop his father's manipulating game by making the first move on Beth? Or will his reputation as a womanizer make him just one more Sutherland she wants to ignore?
