The Replacement Guitarist, By Lori Toland

**This book contains Male Male Relations**

Blaze Shinozuka has two goals: get a job as a guitarist and lose his virginity. At an audition for a famous pop star, he draws the attention of celebrity manager Jason Stockton—and their instant attraction sends his world careening off its axis just as he is thrust into the gritty world of rock 'n' roll.
Straight-laced music manager Jason Stockton is always professional and never dips his pen in the company ink. But there is something about Blaze that leaves him wanting what he shouldn't. The guitarist’s exotic beauty and compelling innocence is a temptation Jason can’t resist.

After one lie in the national media pushes them apart, Blaze must decide whether he will trust Jason, a man he shouldn’t touch, let alone love. The cutthroat, jealous world of rock 'n' roll, has chewed up and spit out the toughest musicians, and Blaze vows he will be the last man standing, even after the music stops.

                Oh where to start on this book, I completely enjoyed the story on many levels.  The main characters, Blaze and Jason, were just completely perfect in my opinion.  The plot line of the story was really thought out in my opinion.  There was the right balance between drama, suspense and romance in the book that keeps you turning the pages.
                I am a complete sucker for books that the characters actually face “real life” problems, no matter who they are.  And in this book, Blaze and Jason do face problems in their relationship.  Granted they aren’t exactly what we face on our day to day lives, but taking into account what their lives are like, they are pretty serious problems.
                Even the minor characters in the story have such a big role in the book that it adds to the story on so many levels.  The way that Blaze’s parents are, that helps to show how he has become the way he is.  Jason’s past does come back to haunt him on occasion and it was really good to see that happen because it shows that even though he has things together on the outside, inside he is still a person.
                This book is very fast paced, yet I didn’t feel like there was anything left out from the story.  I was able to follow along with the relationship that was forming, and being able to see things from both sides was great.  The sex between Blaze and Jason was completely off the charts amazing!  It was written extremely well in my opinion and it wasn’t overplayed like in some books.  This book was more a romance with sex on the side.  Not just sex with romance on the side.
The only question that I have after reading this book is when do I get more Jason???  I completely fell in love with him during this book and I can’t wait for more of their story.
