It’s time to crash and burn….

Traveling across the United States in their beat up station wagon, sisters Audrey and Liv Westing flee their dark pasts. Playing gigs as a singing duo in questionable bars and dives, they live life in the fast lane. No regrets. No Looking back. When their beauty and music attract the eye of a deadly, but powerful Cartel family, everything spirals out of control.

The fall is worth the pain…

Along with a sexy, blind percussionist named Saul, the sisters shoot their way to the top of the music charts, but the price to pay for stardom is steep when knee deep in carnal contracts that demand more than the sisters can give.

Love is a killer…

Where hearts are the currency and music is the only escape, Liv and Audrey must make their way through a world of sketchy music deals, sexy assassins, and unfathomable demands from those who want nothing more than to own every piece of them. But Audrey and Liv don't mind breaking every single rule to survive.

Wait for the encore before the sky falls…

I don’t read a ton of contemp romance, but I am SO glad I made an exception for Fall of Sky! Alexia has perfected such beautiful torture! The entire time, you can see how things are about to go wrong, but you’re powerless to stop it! I wanted to reach through the pages and move the characters to their rightful places, to protect them from the inevitable heartache. But at the same time, you get the feeling that no matter the amount of anguish, everything will somehow work out for the best… you hope…

All together, it’s a fairly long story, each episode a perfect length for an evening read. I read the four episodes back to back, and can’t even begin to imagine reading them separately! Each one has its own mini cliffhanger, leaving you waiting, wanting, wondering. I definitely recommend the full season, just to save yourself the torment.

I would usually steer clear of rock star romance, since it’s been done to death, but how often are the GIRLS the ones in the band? It brought a whole new appeal to the plot. The chapters bounce back and forth between the two sisters, Liv and Audrey (with the exception of one chapter from Saul’s POV), and it is absolutely impossible for me to pick a favorite. Liv is more impulsive, a roiling ball of sexual hormones, squeezed into a pair of torn skinny jeans. She’s electric, and embodies all of the qualities I wish I had, but at the same time, she is lacking in the responsibility department. Audrey is the one to walk the straight and narrow, and works double time to keep Liv from crossing too far over the line. They both undergo a tremendous amount of growth throughout the story. Saul is an interesting character, though I wish there had been more chapters from his POV. Still waters run deep, and all that jazz. I very rarely knew for sure what he was thinking, so I also found it very difficult to trust him. Are his motives purely innocent? You’ll just have to read it to find out for sure. 😉

Alexia’s story is accompanied with song lyrics for the band’s songs. I really wish I could have heard the music in real life! Even beyond the lyrics, Alexia’s writing is poetic and flowing, and a pleasure to immerse yourself in. Highly recommend!
