This is a story about a girl discovering and experiencing life for the first time.

Bryn Schaefler grew up rich. Her parents expected the best out of her, picked her boyfriend for her, and groomed her to be the next trophy wife fresh out of High School. 

But when they discover she wants to pursue music instead of following in her mothers footsteps, they wanted to hear nothing about it.By chance, she auditioned for main stream rock band Everlasting. Never in a million years did she think she would make it.

Cale Pelton knew it was his fault for the band scrambling around to find a new guitarist. Once he saw Bryn audition, he knew he had to have her. Not just in the band, but in his mind, body and soul.

Excerpt (Some language):

Passing the bus for Ignite the Flames, I saw someone leaning against the door of the bus, smoking a cigarette, aiming the smoke in my direction. 

“First show?” The guy asked, taking one last puff of his cigarette and throwing it onto the pavement. He was good looking to say the least. It was like I was staring at Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy in the flesh, minus the whole biker jacket thing going on. Wow, I could hardly contain myself. Down girl...you have a show to play.

Turning towards him, I put my hands on my hips. “How’d you guess?” I asked, cocking one hip to the side. I was showing a little too much leg, but I knew that’s how a lot of girls dressed when on stage. I figured I might as well follow suit. 

Jax look-a-like smirked and gestured toward my outfit. “It was easy, love. The outfit for starters, the way you carry yourself, like you’re a stuck up pageant queen or some shit.” 

I gave him an indignant look. “Do you get all of the girls like that, saying they’re stuck up pageant queens?”

“Of course,” he winked, taking steps towards me and outstretched his hand. “Damon Charming, Ignite the Flames.” 

I took his hand, shaking it with a tight grip. His grey eyes were shooting laser beams into my system and all of a sudden, I felt throbbing between my legs. I knew what that meant. I wasn’t that inexperienced, despite being a virgin. His eyes met mine and I smiled in return. “Bryn Schaefler, Everlasting.” 

“Bryn Schaefler huh?” He pulled out another cigarette and lit it up right in front of me. “I heard about you. New lead guitarist. Cale seems to think you’re a frickin’ prodigy or something.” 

Cale really said that about me. He must have been bragging to the world that he nailed me, not literally. I shrugged my bare shoulders. “Yeah I guess I’m pretty good.” 

He took another puff and handed the butt over to me. I shook my head and he placed it back into the side of his mouth so he could talk. “Well, pretty good gets you nowhere, darling. You’ve got to shred those notes like fuckin’ butter. Move those fingers like you’re screwing the guitar bare back.” I stood there with my mouth gaped open. I didn’t know how to react to that. Sure he was pretty damn gorgeous, but I’ve never been around someone who swore so much to my face. Showed how much I got around. “But good luck. I’ll be watching you.” He winked again, and I mouthed “bye”, looking back a couple of times his way before finally making my way inside the venue.
