Gavin McManus is exact right person to be the lead singer of a band like Rogue. He's got the requisite disheveled good looks, confidence, and undeniable magnetism, but what sets him apart is the way he funnels the childhood pain of his mother abandoning him into wounded-rock-star mystique.

Sophie Kavanaugh was drawn to Gavin long before he found fame. Her own desire to be what he needed, to somehow be the one to fix him, lasted beyond what should have simply been a memorable school-days romance.

Their reunion several years later happens just as Gavin's band, Rogue, has made a splash in the college music scene, and there's no turning back.

Over the course of three more albums and the next decade, Rogue earns their place as the biggest band in the world, while Sophie finds her own career as a model. They exude the outward appearance of the perfect rock star/supermodel couple. At the same time, Conor, Gavin's best friend and the band's guitarist, struggles to contain his deepening feelings for Sophie. But no matter what tests Gavin and Sophie face, their need for each other never wavers. It's what works for them. Until it doesn't.

When the truth about Gavin's mother is revealed, the ensuing media storm and backlash sends him into a downward spiral that threatens to destroy everything he's worked for, including his marriage, his friendships, and his band.

Tangled Up In You: A Rogue Series NovelThere is raw and realistic writing going on between the covers of this dark romance. Lara Ward Cosio has brought a gut-wrenching read to the table and trust me, you won’t want to miss it. Tangled Up In You is the story of the grit, the loyalty and the love that may or may not withstand the heartbreaking trials and human frailties of two people desperately trying to make a life together in the fishbowl of fame.

Gavin is determined to make a name for his band, made up of life-long best friends in the music industry and he plans on bringing his Sophie along with on his journey to fortune and fame. She is his strength, his ground and the safe haven he needs following a dysfunctional childhood, leaving him the emotionally needy, yet feeding his inspiration for songs that make the crowds swoon.
Sophie is loyal to a fault, his wife and his soft place to fall, but it isn’t enough as Gavin barrels forward on a path of drugs, addiction and self-destruction. Is it time for Sophie to give up? Is there another who has longed for her who is able to give her all SHE needs?

Lara Ward Cosio’s gritty and slightly dark tale is written pulling out all of the stops as she captures the ugly side of emotional damage, need and deceit. Meet the players, the tricksters, the enablers as well as the main characters who will bring you to the edge of tears, raging anger and sorrow for all they go through, self-inflicted or not. This is not a romanticized version of loving a rockstar or of being one, under the crystal fantasy of the celebrity world, Ms. Cosio bares the jagged shards of reality and the pressures few can endure.

I received this copy from Lara Ward Cosio in exchange for my honest review.
