A friends to lovers rock star romance. This book is a stand-alone novel.

Bandmates and best friends since they were teens, Jeremy Kagan and Alan Delgado share everything – including men. But their brotherly bond was shattered during one incident of mistaken identity in a darkened bedroom when a line was crossed. With boundaries broken and the line of friendship blurred, they struggle to move forward.

For Jeremy, that night was a dream come true. He had been in love with Alan for a decade but had been too afraid to bear his heart and reveal his true feelings. Now that the opportunity has presented itself, he’s ready to seize the moment. This is his one chance to be with the only man he’s ever loved.

Alan, on the other hand, isn’t dealing with the incident so well. A lot of monumental achievements have occurred in his life, but none were as life altering as a single erotic encounter with his best friend. The usual fun-loving camaraderie he and Jeremy had always shared is now awkward and uncomfortable.

Unable to shed the memory of their rendezvous, Alan starts to look at Jeremy in a new light. Transitioning from bromance to romance isn't as easy as expected, especially since Alan isn’t ready to share their newfound bond with anyone else. Stress from keeping their relationship a secret turns explosive as these two battle their passion in private. Now they need to figure out if it’s worth risking everything, including their friendship, in order to pursue a future together as a couple.

Jeremy started to laugh. Softly at first, then so hard he doubled over and tears seeped from the corners of his eyes. He needed to hang onto Alan’s arm, as hard as Alan was hanging on to him, so they didn’t fall over. Their laughter slowed, with intermitted bouts of cackling. They glanced at one another and it suddenly turned serious. Their lips straightened, no longer curled into even the tiniest of smiles, and their posture stiffened. Their eyes bore into one another, each reading so much more than friendship. It was there. That little spark they shared was as bright as the blazing sun. Jeremy had longed to see it for so many years. He often imagined it. He swore once or twice that he saw a shadow of a glimmer in those beautiful silver eyes, but not today. The spark they shared right at this moment could have started a forest fire. It was finally real, and it made the hair on Jeremy’s arms stand on end. A flutter rose from his belly and danced around his chest. His breath caught. He was frozen in place. The only thing he could do was stare back at the man he loved and wanted . . . for so God damn long.


Best friends to lovers. Always a tricky subject to get right. As there's a fine balance between friendship and relationship. You can't have the second without the first, and you should never put the first in jeopardy for the second.
This is what Jeremy and Alan realize and go through in Bassist with Benefits. Neither wants to put their platonic relationship on the line, they went through too much together for that, but neither can deny the strong attraction they have to the either.
One night is all it takes.
Jenna Galicki, is an author that has a pretty simple writing style, but you get to feel the characters as they aren't that hard to get to know. Classic, typical rockstars that party too hard and like their music too loud, it's a tale of best friends and true love. Who would have thought?
When I first started this book I thought it was going to be a quick fun read, and while it was that, I didn't expect to fall in love with all the characters. From Brandon and Cam, and wanting to know how their relationship started (guess I have to go back to the beginning), to Derek and wanting him to find his real love, to begging and pleading with Jeremy and Alan to get their heads on straight.
Jenna gives you flawed characters and doesn't apologize. She gives you read characters who don't know the first thing about true love, but aren't afraid to try.
I'm glad I decided I needed to read this book, it showed a side of the rockstar life that many books fail to do. It doesn't idealize it, it humanizes it.
The love between Jeremy and Alan is real, and that is all that matters.
