Blurb

My name is Ace and I’m the Ace of Spades.
I’m not nice and I misbehave.
I will be your nightmare.
I will be your dream.
I will have you begging for more of me with each scream.
The truth is in my lyrics.
Uncontrollably controlled.
I bleed many things one being Rock & Roll.

I don’t date or make love, I fuck real hard.
Did you know the ace of spades is considered the death card?
Love doesn’t exist in my world, it never did.
Love won’t exist in my world, it’s something I forbid.

My name is Ace and I’m the ace of spades.
Proceed with caution, because I’m sharp like a blade.

The Band of Brothers novels are full length and will follow each brother in the band.
They can be read together or separately.

Excerpt

 

Excerpt from Chapter 1.

 Tonight I would fuck the blonde in the front row who continued to visually rip my clothes off with every little blink she took. Her tits were hanging out of her shirt and she licked her lips and batted her eyes at me. The set was nearing the end and I could feel her gaze. When I looked away and back at her, it was like her eyes had never left me. I liked when a woman knew what she wanted.

Blue and green lights flashed over the stage then washed across the crowd. When we made eye contact again, her tongue traced the outside of her plump bottom lip and at that moment I knew she was DTF. Her being down to fuck made this so much easier but then again, being the lead singer of the Band of Brothers made panties magically melt. I’d be her fantasy for the night. I’m sure there would be many more one night stands considering each show from Florida to New York, all the way to California was sold out.

The drums beat on as I screamed out the next few lyrics. “I won’t let the world decide. I’ll die before that happens.”

The drums stopped and the distortion was cut leaving a melodic strum of Nikolas’s guitar.

The lights faded when walked off stage leaving the crowd screaming and yelling at the top of their lungs. Jex, Nic, and Rex had huge smiles covering their faces as they chugged the water the technicians handed us. This would never get old. Moments like this were the ones we lived and worked for. Once the chanting and clapping rose to the maximum volume, the four of us walked back onstage and gave the fans what they wanted, an encore.

Green and yellow lights flashed over the crowd and smoke hovered at the bottom of the stage. We played three more songs. People sang and swayed to the lyrics and music. Some jumped up and down, feeling the full beat of the drums while others banged their heads. The feeling of having thousands of people chanting my words would never become real. More often than not, I felt like I was in a dream, one that I never wanted to wake from.

During the last song, I pointed to the blonde. By the way she was dressed in a tight pink shirt and a skirt that showed the bottom of her ass cheeks, I knew she wanted to be seen. She could have possibly had this night planned from the beginning. Randomly, I chose a few others from the crowd to join us, to dance in front of our audience, to feel the temporary power. It was something I did every show, every tour. It was a habit of sorts.

Security helped the girls climb on the stage and they lifted their arms and shook their asses. Before the song ended, the technicians led the girls’ side stage as cannons of small fireworks shot from the floor. After the final song, my brothers and played the crowd and threw drumsticks and guitar picks. The yelling didn’t stop for minutes and the audience realized we weren’t coming back out. I walked side stage where girls anxiously waited us. I smiled, popping an eyebrow at my chosen woman for the night, and she instantly came to me. I wrapped my arm around her shoulder and hers hung on my waist. My brothers stopped in the green room with the other girls, but Blondie and I walked to the bus.

“I’m Lindsey,” she whispered in my ear before we reached the end of the hallway. I smiled at her and pushed open the exit door. Groupies and fans waited near the bus and as soon as we walked up they rushed it.

“I’ll be out in a bit,” I said, smiling at them with pearly whites. “My brothers are coming out that door over there. Really soon.”

I hated to out their exit strategy, but I wanted to take my time burying my dick deep inside Misty or Christy or whatever the fuck her name was. It didn’t matter. Names never did.


**MY REVIEW**

To say that I had been patiently waiting for Lyra Parish’s Band of Brother’s series to kick off would be a lie – and I hate to lie.  There is no patient about it.  I love Lyra Parish and when I caught a sniff she was writing a series about a rock band… of brothers… ARE YOU KIDDING?  SIGN. ME. UP.
Ace is about.. well Ace Hathway.  The lead singer/baby brother of the group Band of Brothers.  He’s the love ’em and leave ’em type.  (im using the term “love” in place of a much dirtier word so my review doesnt get taken down from the retailers, but you get what im saying, right?)
Elizabeth Riley works for PHASE magazine, and she is basically forced to go on tour with the band by her bully jerk of a boss. She is very shy, almost to the point of being backwards and to top it off, she is not a fan of the Brothers’ music.  The one thing she does want… the elusive and exclusive interview with Ace Hathway, who up until this point has refused to be interviewed by any journalist.  During press times with the band, he lets his brothers do all the talking.  He is widely known for his music, his bedroom skills and his tight lips with reporters.  Elizabeth wants the story, Ace wants his shot with Elizabeth.  Sounds like its time for let’s make a deal.  😉
I love the way Lyra Parish develops characters.  Even the strongest ones have a vulnerable side and you can see that here with Ace.  Very three dimensional and deep, both he and Elizabeth – I felt like I got to see a lot of their personalities in the way the story line played out.  The secondary characters – certainly in Jenny and somewhat in Nic, they were also developed well.  I would like to have seen a little more of the twins Rex and Jex – than just the occasional cameo.
I loved the ending.  Ace came through in the ending in true Lyra Parish style!  🙂  The book as a whole was a solid read, clean editing (I was given an ARC copy) and good character development.  I would definitely recommend it for readers who are looking for series books and who want some serious STEAM!!
