Country music singer, Zane Alexander has struggled to keep his sexuality a secret, but hiding his attraction to their new guitarist, Finn Presswood, is damn near impossible.
On the run from a dangerous ex-lover, Finn has secrets of his own, but his feelings for Zane isn’t one of them.
When the new song they co-wrote leads to a recording contract with a major Nashville label, it becomes clear that their lives are about to change. Unfortunately, secrets are harder to hide in the limelight, so for Zane, fake-dating a famous supermodel seems like the best solution for everyone.
Their dreams are finally within their grasp until Finn’s past catches up, and no matter how much the two men love each other, happiness is never a guarantee.
If good intentions pave the road to hell, then broken neon paves the road to Nashville.
Be Warned: m/m sex, rimming
As he crossed the threshold, he tossed his hat onto the table and made a beeline to the mini-fridge. The door closed behind them, but Zane paid it little mind as he bent down to retrieve two cold beers. When he turned around, his heart skipped a beat.
Finn stood directly behind him, his shirt already unbuttoned and his jaw flexed taut. The hungry look in Finn’s eyes made Zane’s cock swell.
“Shit.” Zane let the bottles of beer fall to the floor as Finn moved in.
Their teeth clanked together from the voracious kiss, igniting the explosive passion that had been building between them. Tongues tangled, battling for domination, while clothes and boots flew about the room.
“I’ve wanted this…” Finn panted. “So fucking long.”
“Shut the hell up.” Zane shoved Finn back onto the bed and crawled up the length of him.
Zane felt Finn’s hardened cock jam into his side, and he reached down to stroke it without hesitation.
Finn pushed Zane’s hand away and flipped him over, then glared down into his eyes. “You better make this last.” Finn’s gravelly tone only added to the need pulsing through Zane’s cock.
He kissed Finn’s shoulder and chest as he dug his nails into Finn’s back.
Finn winced and kissed Zane even harder, rocking his groin against Zane’s thigh.
Pre-cum seeped from Finn’s thick shaft, dampening Zane’s skin. He swallowed hard, wanting nothing more than to lick the crown clean. He gripped Finn’s cock, and stroked it, causing Finn to bite down on Zane’s bottom lip as they kissed.
Zane reciprocated by sucking Finn’s lip into his mouth, while his mind ventured to thoughts of what he’d rather be sucking. The desire surprised Zane a little. Usually, he was the one being pleasured, but this was different. Zane wanted to get Finn off so badly, he could taste it.
He pushed up on Finn’s shoulders and kissed his way down his chest.
Finn rolled off and lay on his back. He ran his fingers through Zane’s hair and moaned as Zane moved lower. The sound excited Zane even more. His own cock ached. His need for release intensified with each blood-surging pulse.
Zane gripped Finn’s shaft firmly then wrapped his tongue around the crown.
Salty sweetness coated Zane’s taste-buds. He tongue fucked the slit, searching for every drop Finn had to offer.
“Feels so fucking good.” Finn writhed and pulled Zane’s hair.
Zane swallowed Finn’s shaft. His eyes and mouth watered as each bob of his head plunged deeper. He flattened his tongue along Finn’s cock and lapped his satiny flesh like an ice cream cone.
Finn groaned and grabbed Zane’s arm, tugging him upward until they were chest to chest once again. He peered down into Finn’s eyes as they hugged each other close. Zane had missed this feeling. This connection. This sense of giving himself to someone. He hadn’t shared this kind of mutual intimacy since before he started singing professionally, and even that had been nothing more than teenage infatuation.
Finn’s eyelids lowered to half-mast. “Don’t stop.”
The urgency in Finn’s tone fueled Zane’s resolve. He’d take his new lover all the way to the other side. Past the point of no return. All of Zane’s previous doubts faded fast. “Once I have you, I might not want to let you go.”
He’d tried so hard to deny himself this pleasure. Kept it hidden, only allowing a few stolen moments with someone he’d paid to deliver, but none of that compared to letting his guard down and really indulging.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we get there.”
Zane leaned in and kissed him tenderly, savoring the feel of Finn’s lips pressed to his. The taste of his tongue and the warmth of his body fused to his own. This was exactly what Zane had wanted for so long.
If Zane were ever able to offer a man everything, Finn Presswood could damn sure be the man he’d give it to.

This book was awesome. There's really no other word to describe it. Zane and Finn are both living in fear. As a country music star on the rise, Zane fears the public will discover the secret of his sexuality and ruin his chances at making his music industry dreams come true.
Finn fears for his life and that of his older brother's when an ex-lover who dabbles in crime and death sets his sights on reclaiming what he believes is his: Finn.
This book has it all: love, music, two fiery hot main characters, suspense, scorching love scenes, a little angst, and a plot that engages the reader. Loved this read.

This is a great story. Through all their emotions and struggles, Finn & Zane know the one thing that is important, is each other. I loved how their relationship developed and the musical aspect. Must read.

When I read this blurb, I figured this would be a typical musician tale of a lead singer needing to hide his identity to save his career. And I was partially correct, but there was also a bit of crime drama thrown in. Broken Neon ended up being an action packed love story with a HEA and the promise of an interesting sequel.
I do not want to give away too much of the plot, but I do want to talk about how impressed I was that the story kept me guessing. As I said before, I assumed this would be a formula musician tale with one MC stuck so far in the closet, he ruins his relationship with the love of his life. Yes this was part of the story, but there was more. There was mystery, there was baggage, there was kidnapping, and FBI agents. Every time I thought I knew what was coming next, something new was introduced into the picture that kept me wanting to know more. Some of it was pretty easy to predict, but overall, it held my attention and kept me connected to the outcome.
I also liked the character interactions throughout the story. Both Zane and Finn were essentially struggling with the same demons. It was fun to watch both men give each other advice on the same issues they were dealing with while neither man would own up to the fact that he was being hypocritical with said advice. Eventually, though, things catch up to them both and they are forced to grow up and admit what they want in life. Together, they have a better future than either could have apart. The ending gives great promise of a long term HEA.
I do have one issue with this story. The epilogue felt forced. I see the connection, because of the character carry over, but Broken Neon was mostly a musician tale and the sequel seems to be a full on undercover crime drama. It was very unexpected and felt as if it was an afterthought tacked on to the end to get more milage out of this book.
Overall, Broken Neon was a good read with hot sex and a happy ending. I am looking forward to reading more about Angel in the upcoming sequel.
