***This book is the standalone follow-up to Miss World, but you do not have to read MW to enjoy this one.*** 

It was 1995 in the Southern California wasteland.

I was barely legal and far from innocent. I loved The Gun Club more than I loved Walter, my high school sweetheart. He was the only person who knew why I stopped singing and playing guitar after what happened to me when I was 16. But even an engagement ring couldn’t save us after what he did to me that one afternoon.

I used to worry that college would come between us, but I never thought it would happen on move-in day.

That was the day I met Franz : a tall, handsome 23-year-old ex-jock from Germany. He was so not my type, but the more I got to know him, the more I knew he was the right guy for me. And after Walter betrayed me for the last time, it was time for me to break up with him and be with Franz for good. I never thought he’d be a safe place for me to explore my darkest sexual fantasies. Nor that he’d be a kindred spirit who knew exactly what it felt like when someone ridiculed your musical aspirations.

We gonna start playing music together and be who we were meant to be. Nothing and no one was gonna stop us.

Not even Walter.


***This book contains crude language and graphic, consensual scenes of rough sex, spanking, and anal play. It is not intended for younger readers!!!***

This is my review of book 1: Miss World

It is not a MUST that you read it before “The Light of the World”, but I highly suggest it. It will answer a few questions that pop up in book 2. Give you a little background.

I love Randi Black. She is a talented author and awesome human. She single-handedly made my birthday this year awesome. Maybe my respect and like for her makes my opinion biased..maybe not. All I know is I am NOT usually a fan of any type of erotic, romance, contemporary, type stories. I love both of her books. Read my review for MISS WORLD. I barely knew her when I wrote that review BTW. I was not slated on her book release tour, but had to participate when I found out about it.

    I am so grateful for your support and friendship, and am glad you enjoyed my second book! You know, this one was written as a love letter to Jeffrey Lee Pierce and The Gun Club, and selling copies or good reviews were an afterthought. All I wanted was to be able to tweet Kid Congo Powers on what would’ve been his friend’s 56th birthday, then call it a day.

    I’m calling it a day.
