Color can be painful
Julian Wheaton and Cleo Compton have a history that includes his sister as her best friend. Usually when they are in the same place, Cleo ends up falling or tripping or harming someone.
Julian is also the owner of a recording studio. He gives her a job and a place to live above the studio after her world implodes. She does not want to live with her parents and has run low on options.
Cleo is dating a man her parents approve of. This is before they meet Julian, of course. His sister and her best friend is also dating a rock star. One that Julian does not approve of.
Julian has secrets that he is not wanting to share. One is his health with the synesthesia. Second, would be his history with a band when he was young. The past for him is very dangerous and repeating it could be his greatest mistake. When he realizes who he has fallen for, he may be willing to make that mistake anyway.
Cleo wants to tell him everything. She cannot help that she is attracted to musicians who play guitar. She has some secrets from the past that could have consequences too. What will she do if there is a choice between a man from her past and Julian?
This story makes me think. It has amazing character development and some real fun with banter and sex. I was impressed with the story as a whole. I do not say that often. This book makes you feel for both characters and root them on. While giving you a dose of what would happen in real life at the same time. I give it a super 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
