The Griffin's Secret By: Cate Masters
Jackson Grant had it all—the girl he loved, his Harley, and his guitar. Until a tragic accident stole it all away. Now, more than scars and a tattoo remain. Jackson has a secret. Cursed by his dead girlfriend’s mother, he can never fall in love again or his beloved will die. With his heart on lock down, he keeps to himself—until a roadie gig with Malcontent, the world’s most popular band, entwines his fate with sweet, wounded Layla’s…
Music is what Layla lives for. She has no choice. She’s bound by magic to serve Malcontent, cursed to propel them to stardom with her musical powers. Then Jackson appears and gives her hope that he’s the hero who will save her. A reluctant hero, yet one she can’t resist. But freedom will come at price—and who will pay…?"
I will say I am not particularly a lover of fantasy/paranormal reads but I will say I loved this one! I liked how this author was able to present this well written story to the reader that was a 're-telling of Grimm's classic fairy tale.' You will be hooked into this read from the very start...as Jackson has a motorcycle wreck to meeting Grundy....getting a tattoo...then he is off to the West Coast to being a roadie for a rock band...Malcontent where he meets Layla who was off limits to him. Now, why was that? Truly fitting this Grimm's Tale into a rock music world was very well done by this author. I found the characters for the most part were all well developed, defined and believable giving the reader a well told and captivating story. I will say some of the characters I liked definitely...Jackson and Layla but their was one ....well, you will just have to pick up this good read to see just who that was and also getting the rest of the story! Questions will be answered as to ...why was Jackson Grant cursed and what will it take to break this curse that had been given to him? Be prepared for a lots of twist and turns, suspense as well as to be intrigued from this well told story. I did enjoy the conclusion of this story. No cliffhangers here!
