A new band in the Oblivian world and one we have seen from time to time in the Hammered series. It’s time for a new group of rockers to fall in love starting with Lindsey of Brooklyn Dawn. Classy, but not afraid to get dirty and a famous producer who is more mysterious than anything.
Brooklyn Dawn has been a band on the fringes of all the stories in the Lost in Oblivion, Found in Oblivion, and Hammered world. Jaime is the wild child while Lindsey brings the voice that makes it all come together. The story opens with a haunting piano melody and two people who know each other hating each other but drawn to each other through the music. Parting ways, but they are noticed by a friend or maybe an enemy.
Sometime later Lindsey is looking forward to time off from the tour, but that’s not to be when Logan from Winchester Falls series calls needing her help on a Holiday album he is working on. Being on tour has been exhilarating but also exhausting and relaxing is all she wants. She owes Logan so helping him in need is a no brainer.
Alexander Nash is also another character we have seen before, but there is a lot of mystery surrounding him. He’s a loner, but a brilliant producer. He once was in a band as well, but drugs and alcohol messed him up to the point he crashed and literally burned. Voice mangled, he keeps to himself but can see the talent and help them achieve stardom. When his latest talent shows up high, he fires her and leaves his friend’s Holiday album in a lurch with no headlining talent. Then Lindsey shows up. The only woman he been interested in for years.
The two argue at every turn and make it impossible for Logan to get the work done needed in a few days. Locking them up in the “barn’ seems the best way to solve this issue. Forced together the two argue, fuck, and start on creating a song or two. Lindsey is not ashamed of fucking or getting what she wants. Nash is more reserved, introverted and trapped behind emotional walls that are going to need a sledgehammer to break down.
The two start a contentious relationship as she goes back to touring, but strange things starting happening. Phone calls from unknown numbers with garbled recordings, torn up tour posters, feeling as if she is being watched. Now the band needs security and Nash wants to protect Lindsey, but also leave her as his world is being torn apart as well. Both are better together, but a wedge is driving them apart.
Suspense weaves throughout the story as you know they are being watched and by who. You just don’t know to what end this is coming. Then something happens that throws the two into wondering if they even know each other.
The story weaves with sultry moves of two musically talented people, looking for love, but do not feel they deserve it. Lindsey wants more than Nash is willing to give, but Nash wants to have what he feels he doesn’t deserve. Trust issues ensue. Misunderstandings. Betrayal of friends. And deadly consequences. It had everything to make a great story come alive in my mind.
