From rock icon to house husband.
From academic historian to tell-all memoirist.
They changed their lives for each other. 
Now they need to change them back.

What follows happily-ever-after? Love gets real.
Like every woman newly and emphatically in love, academic Elizabeth Winston figured she’d fix her rockstar lover’s emotional problems with her shiny, all-encompassing acceptance.
Oh boy.
Even though she’d heard her minister father counsel couples throughout her childhood, she forgot the take-away. You can’t force someone to heal before they’re ready.
Now she’s five thousand miles from the man she loves and hawking intimate details of their relationship to salvage his iconic legacy. Struggling to keep her own identity, and increasingly unsure whether Zander’s even on board.
Can she redeem his reputation while holding onto her career, or is she making things worse on all fronts?
And that’s before she makes a mistake that changes everything.

He gave up the world for love. The world isn’t ready to let him go. 
 Fame is a destroyer.
Which is why Zander Freedman quit music.
These days its moderation in all things, except Elizabeth Winston.
But building an ordinary life with an extraordinary woman isn’t easy.
For one, she’s deep in the snake pit he left behind.
For two, he has a stalker that stops him being by her side.
Loving her is easy. Letting her love him is something he works on every day.
How hard does Elizabeth’s life have to be before she regrets choosing him?


New Zealander Karina Bliss’s debut won a Romantic Book of the Year award in Australia and in 2016 she finalled for the fourth time with RISE–the first of her Rock Solid series, which digs into the private and family lives of rock stars. FALL, RESURRECTION and the novella, PLAY, continue the series.
Her sixteen romance novels have also received numerous accolades (Desert Island Keeper, ‘Best Of’ lists, RT Top Pick, Sizzling Book Club Chat) on reader sites like Dear Author, Smart Bitches and All About Romance.
Karina was the first Australasian to win a Golden Heart from Romance Writers of America.

My Review

Confession; I am a Rage groupie!

When Zander Freedman lost his voice and made the colossal mistake of lip-syncing at a benefit concert for veteran soldiers, it destroyed his career as a rock god. Truthfully, he was burning out anyway, so it came as a bit of a mixed blessing, though he didn’t know it at the time. But an exceptional woman steps into his life and shows him true love is even more addictive than adoration.

Fast forward; Elizabeth Winston’s determination to redeem Zander’s reputation in the eyes of his fans has surmounted expectations, forcing her into a world tour even though she’d rather be home with her rock star boyfriend. When doubts rise thanks to outside influences, Elizabeth reevaluates their relationship and what it’s doing to her career. If only Zander could join her and dispel some of her fears.

Zander hates that Elizabeth is out in the spotlight trying to repair his name, yet at the same time he’s fiercely proud of the woman who loves him for himself and not his image. He wishes he could be with her on the tour as moral support, but with a deranged stalker on his back he can’t afford to risk Elizabeth’s safety. Then a secret emerges sending him into a tailspin just as danger comes knocking.

This book had it all, love, romance, suspense, and even a cute dog!

Favorite Lines

“At lunchtime on Friday, Zander Freedman faced death with the realization that the woman he loved would remember his last words as, “Give me space.”
