Lucy Cooper as known the Phoenix family all her life. But one particular Phoenix has always caught her eye, Rafe Phoenix. Rafe is a triplet with his brother Ryder and Reeve and the three of them form a band called Inside Noise.
Lucy and Rafe’s timing was always odd, with boyfriends and girlfriends getting in the way but after a traumatic night at their high school bonfire with a cheating boyfriend and a life changing event Lucy and Rafe connect on a deeper level.
But things happen in life that makes you realise that you need to escape and have time away to heal. Lucy needs to find herself again which she does on her travels. After traveling the world and arriving back in LA, Lucy reconnects with Rafe but will their friendship blossom into something more or will Lucy still hold him at arms length?
Rafe and Lucy have known each other nearly all their lives. They have crushed on each other but their timing has always been off when it comes to hooking up. Then during a tragic event, Rafe is Lucy’s knight in shining armor. But Lucy leaves town to recover from the tragedy, leaving Rafe behind.
Now, a year later, Lucy is back in town and reconnects with Rafe through mutual friends. Lucy isn’t ready to start dating again but Rafe convinces her they can be friends. While spending time together as friends, old feelings come back to the surface and this time, both Lucy and Rafe are single and ready to finally take the next step in their relationship.
But life isn’t always smooth sailing. Rafe is in a band with his 2 brothers, the 3 of them are triplets, and they have been living the “rocker” lifestyle. The brothers are known for their hotness and love ’em and leave ’em ways. Will Rafe be able to change and be the man Lucy can count on? Will Lucy be able to work through her past relationship and trust issues and be strong enough to handle being the girlfriend of a rock star?
Overall, the story was sweet and I enjoyed the relationship between Lucy and Rafe. I think a few things could have been explained a bit better, such as what happened to Rafe’s father and Lucy’s high school boyfriend, Dallas, is mentioned as being in town but then nothing else is said. I really liked the other triplets, Reeve and Ryder, and will be curious to see what the future holds for them. Would recommend for anyone who likes a sweet rocker story.
