Untamed by S.C. Stephens

Book Description

Being the bad-boy bassist for the world's hottest band has earned Griffin Hancock some perks: a big house, a fast car, and most importantly his incredible wife Anna. The one thing it hasn't brought him is the spotlight. Anna tells him to be patient, that his talent will win out. But Griffin is through waiting for permission to shine. 

Without warning, Griffin makes a shocking decision and takes the gamble of a lifetime. Suddenly he's caught up in a new level of lights, cameras, and chaos--one that pushes his relationship with Anna to its limits. Anna has always found his unpredictable behavior sexy, but lately he's seen an ache in her eyes, and it has his soul in knots. Just as the recognition Griffin seeks is finally within reach, the thing he loves most in life could be slipping through his fingers . . .

This is my first book I've ever read by S.C. Stephens.  And while I thought it was well written and I liked Anna and the secondary characters, I didn't like Griffin about 80% of the book and found myself skipping pages hoping there was something redeemable about this character.  He was a shitty friend, husband, bandmate, and (sometimes) father.  He was whiny, immature, selfish, lying, conceited prick for WAY to much of the book.  It didn't surprise me when Anna finally took the girls and left him.  And he even blamed HER FOR HER LEAVING HIM!!! WTF?! You lie to your wife, betray her trust and are shocked that she wants out... really?!  The one positive going for him is that he didn't cheat on Anna when she left his ass.

Maybe one day I'll go back and read the whole book... When I'm in the mood.
