Syncopation (Twisted Wishes #1) by Anna Zabo

Twisted Wishes front man Ray Van Zeller is in one hell of a tight spot. After a heated confrontation with his bandmate goes viral, Ray is hit with a PR nightmare the fledgling band so doesn’t need. But his problems only multiply when they snag a talented new drummer—insufferably sexy Zavier Demos, the high school crush Ray barely survived.
Zavier’s kept a casual eye on Twisted Wishes for years, and lately, he likes what he sees. What he doesn’t like is how out of control Ray seems—something Zavier’s aching to correct after their first pulse-pounding encounter. If Ray’s up for the challenge.
Despite the prospect of a glorious sexual encore, Ray is reluctant to trust Zavier with his band—or his heart. And Zavier has always had big dreams; this gig was supposed to be temporary. But touring together has opened their eyes to new passions and new possibilities, making them rethink their commitments, both to the band and to each other.

This one of those books that I almost passed up. It’s also one of those books that I’m really glad that I didn’t.

I loved Zavier and Ray together. They had a history, but there was so much that they didn’t know about each other. Like the fact that they both secretly (or not so secretly) were attracted to each other in their past. The more they learned about each other, the more attraction and mutual respect grew. I loved watching their relationship evolve.

There was a lot going on behind the scenes (or romance) in Syncopation. Ray’s pretty sure that something wasn’t quite right with the way the band’s manager is handling things. The band members added another layer to the story and I can’t wait to see where the Twisted Wishes goes from here.
