Kristen Callihan - Fall
The ​first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways. In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip. Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands. Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor. An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room. Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun. Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything. All we have to do is trust enough to fall.

Kristen Callihan - Idol
„A ​zene a barátoddá válik, ha nincs egy sem, a szeretőddé, ha éppen arra vágysz. A haragoddá, a bánatoddá, az örömöddé, a fájdalmaddá. A hangoddá, ha nem találod a szavakat.” LIBBY Amikor rátaláltam Killianre, valami elveszett hercegre emlékeztetett, és épp részegen hevert az udvaromon. Az arca, akár egy istené, és pont olyan arrogánsan is viselkedett. Nem volt hajlandó elmenni. Szexi, elbűvölő és egy icipicit mocskos a fantáziája – szép lassan ledönti a falaimat, és én egyre többre vágyom. Az enyém lehetne, ha lenne hozzá bátorságom. A probléma az, hogy az egész világ őt akarja. Hogyan tartsak meg egy bálványként imádott rocksztárt, amikor mindenki azon mesterkedik, hogy elvegye tőlem? KILLIAN A világ egyik legnagyobb rockbandájának énekeseként áloméletet éltem. De egyetlen végzetes döntés elég volt hozzá, hogy mindez a darabjaira hulljon. Most minden romokban hever. Aztán megismertem Libertyt. Morcos, magának való lány – de egész aranyos. Á, kamu. Az igazság az, hogy ha csak hozzáérek, eszméletlenül dögössé válik, és sokkal jobban vágyom rá, mint bármelyik, a nevemet sikító rajongómra valaha is. A világ hangosan követeli, hogy álljak vissza a színpadra, de nem vagyok hajlandó elhagyni őt. Ki kell találnom, hogyan csalogassam ki a csigaházából, hogy velem maradjon. Mert mióta megismertem Libbyt, minden megváltozott. Minden.
