Rock Star Dom + his Queen of the Spreadsheet employee = KRYPTONITE

Kate is a globe-trotting tour manager who can’t be tied down.
Danny is a Dominant rock star and tattoo artist who needs her help to explore his true kinks.

Kate just got her big break, running an international tour for a rising band. Her job is everything to her…at least until she meets the band’s enigmatic bass player.

After they collide in one unforgettably erotic night on a hotel balcony, he comes to her with a proposition. As a former BDSM club performer, Danny’s spent so long fulfilling other people’s fantasies that now he wants to reclaim his own—and he says she’s the only one who can help.

Getting caught in bed with her rock star boss could cost her career, and yet there’s something about Danny’s quiet intensity that she can’t resist. He steals her heart, hard. But the end of the tour is approaching, and their jobs are headed two different directions.

To be together one of them will have to stop touring, but the only thing they crave as much as each other is music.

** This book can be read and understood as a standalone, but does contain spoilers for earlier books in the series. **

The Songs Behind the Characters
Music is the soul of the Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll series. And in a lot of ways, music is how I unlocked each of the characters. Today, I’d love to share the songs that inspired Danny and Kate.
But first, let’s take a peek at the book itself:

First, Danny, because he’s dark and delicious and more than a little dangerous. His song is “Closer” by NIN. It’s profane and kinky and the whole song has this gritty, growly quality, driven by an absolutely unstoppable beat. Perfect for a bass playing sexual Dominant who tattoos his art into people’s skin in lines of black ink and blood.

The song that best encapsulates Kate is an old favorite of mine: “Short Skirt, Long Jacket” by Cake. It’s not so much the sound or tone of the song, but more that it’s a perfect description of her personality. “She’s touring the facility, and picking up slack…” As one of the reviews of this book put it, Kate is “competence porn.” She knows her shit, but she’s also not all uptight and control freak about it. She’s very relaxed and roll with the punches like it’s all a dance and she knows just how to swivel her hips. Fun but effective as hell = a short skirt but a looooooong jacket.

I’d love to hear in the comments if you guys have ever found just the perfect song to describe YOU.
