Crossing the boundaries of skin color is something we still don’t see much of in fiction, let alone Rock Fiction. This  might be the first book that does that, at least in terms of the romance.

The book is A Heart Not Easily Broken, the first in a series called The Butterfly Memoirs. But it’s fiction.

Here’s the book description:

Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take “no” for an answer—to accept the challenge.

When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust.

 

Sounds good, but apparently the sticking point for many reviewers is that Ebony is raped, and the rocker boyfriend doesn’t believe her (really?).  And what is this lately with characters who won’t take no for an answer?

Reviews are mixed, and other than mention that the boyfriend’s a rock star, the reviews I read don’t indicate anything musical at all.

Which leads me to wonder if it is Rock Fiction at all, or if it isn’t. I’ll have to get a copy and see.
