Dai gave up everything when he ran away with his cousin, traded a life of wealth, power, and security to create their band and live the way they want. The one thing he refuses to do is hide; he's worked way too hard, and given up way too much, to pretend to be something he's not.
Cooper never anticipated he would trade rodeo fame for country music stardom. But the secret he had to keep for his own safety is now a secret he has to keep to protect his band. The one thing he can never do is make his sexuality public; he's sacrificed far too much to risk it all by airing personal matters.
But when a chance meeting turns into a passionate night that neither can forget, a tenuous relationship neither wants to let go, someone is going to have to break the rules...
Dai is a famous gay rockstar with crazy multi coloured hairstyles and clothes. He's a member of the band 'Forever and a Dai' and loves to read books in his free time.
Cooper used to be a bullrider, but after an accident, he was forced to quit. After a friend's approach, he joins 'Shine the Moon', playing the fiddle. No one knows that this cowboy is actually not interested in the female population.
Shine Forever is an erotic love story about a rockstar and a cowboy. A cowboy who wants to keep this a secret, since no one knows. Dai isn't usually up for guys, who are still in the closet, but he's ready to make an exception for this hot man.
I can't say I loved this story. I liked the first parts, got bored around the middle and enjoyed more the last parts of this book. So I guess it was not bad, but not my personal favorite as well. I need to clarify that there was a huge turn off for me, that might affected my opinion. One of the MCs was wearing lacy panties and that's of course respectable and anyone can do as he/she wishes in their lives, but if I'm being honest, I didn't enjoy having that picture on my mind. I'm not against m/m, since I love reading them, yes they turn me on, as crazy as that sounds, but it was my first time coming across with 'manties' and it was a shocker for me.
Overall it was an okay read and maybe, if you don't mind the issue that I addressed, you will enjoy this more than I did. :)
