Darcy and Trent not only play in the same band, Dirtshine, they’ve also been best friends for years. They know more about each other than anyone else, they’re practically soul mates. Soul mates without a physically intimate relationship. Until one day, Darcy catches on fire mid-show due to a firework mishap and ignites (pun unintended… but I’m ok with it) a serious change in their relationship.
I haven’t read the first book in the Dirtshine series so I felt a bit lost at times, but I also appreciated not having that story recited to me repeatedly. Just enough information was given to make me want to actually read the first book now. Clever, Ms. Noir.
Darcy and Trent have one of the most natural and genuine relationships I’ve ever read. It takes years for them to risk their friendship for something more, showing how much they value one another as a person. Their mutual devotion is incredibly romantic, even if no romance was actually involved. But once they do get intimate? Woah. So. Good.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
