Maya has spent years putting her time as one quarter of a world-famous girl band, Trouble Clef, behind her, along with the intense romance she shared with her closeted bandmate, Kyra. But now, ten years after their last controversial show, Trouble Clef has a chance to pick up where they left off with a reunion tour, and Maya is forced to face the past—and the lingering feelings she still has for Kyra—once more.

Nostalgia can make someone do all kinds of things they might not normally do. The question is, what will happen to them when the reminiscing ends?

The chemistry between Kyra and Maya was amazing. As soon as they showed up in the same scene, I started hoping they’d end up together forever this time. They knew so much about each other, and they obviously still cared about each other as well. I couldn’t wait to find out if my wish would come true and if they’d be as good for one another as I thought they’d be.

With that being said, Maya and Kyra did move awfully fast once they met up again and began planning the reunion tour for their band. This wasn’t something I would have expected to happen because of how long it had been since they’d last seen each other and how painful their breakup had been back in the day. It would have been nice for them to take things a little more slowly while they were deciding whether to give their relationship another chance.

One of my other favorite parts of this tale was its descriptions of how the music industry works. Musicians and bands are kind of like products in that they’re marketed to certain types of people. I was fascinated by how all of this works and by how little control artists can have over their image at times. While it was only a small part of the plot, it was definitely still an important piece to Maya’s story. I’m glad it was given enough space to shine here.

Trouble Clef should be read by anyone in the mood for something sexy.
