Book Review: Escaping Me by Cat Mason

 Escaping Me 

by Cat Mason






Daisy Shayne has a plan for everything. Her life has been planned out down to the smallest detail since she was a child. With her list nearly complete, she decides to tour the country with her fiancé, Landon, and his brother’s band, Shaft. 

Grayson Cole has spent his entire life shielding himself from letting people get too close. Moving from city to city left no room for any attachments. Entirely focused on bringing the band into the mainstream, Gray devoted his whole heart to writing lyrics and rocking the stage night after night. 
Until one night changed everything. 

Temptation, betrayal, and lies are all mixed with booze, tattoos, sex, laughs, and love as Shaft commands stage after stage. With her life’s plan unravelling before her eyes, Daisy finds herself having to make choices that will alter everything she once knew. Can she stop hiding behind a list and come to terms with what she really wants in life or will she be left in the rubble of her own consequences?

***This book is not a normal romance. Things happen fast and with no*** regret. Rockers and all. 

There are M/F scenes of course but there is M/F/M, hints of M/F/F, possibly a little M/M and plenty of vibrator discussion.

My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:


“I don’t see anyone with you, Wildflower.  You shouldn’t be left alone in here, someone could come along and pluck your petals,”

“You two are so damn hot together, I swear they’ll be fining you for contributing to Global Warming.”

“He’s trashed.  One too many rounds with Stoli.  Told that stupid bastard you never win when you take on a Russian.”

“You realize you’re going to get random pussy at a truck stop, right? ... That’s not groupie sleaze, Cunter.  That’s like throwin’ a Twinkie down a hallway, … She walks like a gun slinger at high noon."

My Review:


Escaping Me sets this series off with a bang with a highly eventful and fast moving story line, quirky characters, highly erotic sensual scenes, and shocking and eye popping plot twists and surprises.  Although the angst was ready made and built into the story from page one – so sneaky – I enjoyed the humor, banter, teasing, and flippant manner in which the band members treated each other.  This small group of sexy, talented, inked, and intimately pierced rockers is on the cusp of stardom while touring as an opening act, and living in tight quarters as they tour the country on a bus.  They cannot speak without expletives, whether they are joking, happy, or angry, and there are plenty of those emotions to work through.  The sensual scenes are molten lava hot; and the practical jokes, challenges, and bets are highly entertaining.  Ms. Mason certainly knows how to maintain the drama and intrigue while the story line goes in several directions before reconnecting again.  I am eager to make my way through the entire series – luckily, they are all waiting for me on my beloved kindle.
