A Wild Minds Novel

If Warren Price was gasoline, I’d be a lit match.

Addison Wanks, rock ’n’ roll’s favorite daughter, is good at keeping secrets.

Secret One

She’s responsible for the long-standing feud between her father’s band, Wanks and Janks, and younger band Wild Minds. She may or may not have let Wild Minds’ sexy bad-boy lead singer Warren defile her backstage at a concert. Okay, she totally did.

Secret Two

She’s supposed to be attending college but instead skips town to follow Wild Minds on their European tour. Addy adores Warren Price.

Secret Three

Europe doesn’t go so well. Her sexy lead singer turned out to be king of a**holes. He’s arrogant, demanding and controlling. Addy loathes Warren Price. Oh, well.

Secret Four

Fast forward a few years and Addy is planning to attend her father’s farewell tour when she hears the news—Wild Minds is back in the good graces of Wanks and Janks. The two bands will be headlining together. This is going to make avoiding Warren difficult. Especially since it seems Warren doesn’t want to be ignored. He also doesn’t want a divorce. That’s right, Addy is married to the Wild Minds front man. Shh. Don’t tell.

What will happen when all Addy’s secrets are revealed?

Honestly I think West is an author that you need to get on fast.  If you love rockstars, secret romances and more. This is the book for you.  The blurb might catch your attention but the book is amazing.  It  like some of my favourite rockstar books. Angst, steamy and plenty of hard loving and drama that will keep you entertained  into the very last page.

Even though I finished reading this book, a couple of days ago, I’m itching for a re-read as I enjoyed the characters and their stories. Determined to engrave their  story into my brain whilst I wait for the next book.

Good Lies  introduces to a world where secrets are the name to the game  and kept the house of cards from falling down.

She used to the famous lifestyle but she prefers to go under the radar thanks to the baggage she carrying.  Why you asked, she the keeper of secrets   something she has deal with for a long time. The best being the reason for the feud between her dad’s band Wanks and Janks and  Wild Mind.  The hottest band on the  scene at the moment and  for four years those secrets have been  safe. Until the good lies start catching up and everything start to unravels.

As the bands have made up and Warren  is back in her life whether she likes it or not.  Warren the key to unlocking her secrets and everything she put behind her.  Warren Price  the boy  she happens to be married to and a secret relationship with. The reason why  she has  all these secrets and lies. So what a girl going to do ?

As Warren Price is your typical rockstar and when it comes ot Addy he is a whole new level. Strap yourself in and get ready  as Warren isn’t going to divorce Addy. She is his, and he isn’t going to let some lies get away. Warren may be the hottest thing around but he only has eyes for Addy. However when you are in the spotlight , nothing going to  stay a secret

Good lies is not just  another rockstar story. It has heart stiring moments  and real felt emotions  as everything from the past fours years come to head.  Addy and War were like any other couple going through their fair share problems. Only they were in the spotlight. It was fun yet it sweet and sexy. I couldn’t’ get enough  of their story. Plus it wasn’t just there’s. It took all the characters to bring this story to life as there was a lot going on . For a debut, I couldn’t fault it really. It was well written and paced well.

West is a debut author to watch out for and with more  in store for this year. Now is the perfect time to get on  Wild Minds band wagon  and join the ride





My phone chirped with an incoming text. I smiled at Pete, Officer Daniels, and held up the phone. “I’ll just be a minute. It’s probably Billy.”

Pete let go of the restaurant door he’d been holding open for me. “He still mad you didn’t let him come for graduation?” After spending the summer with Pete’s family, I’d decided to stay for my senior year, a decision my father didn’t understand and still wasn’t happy about.

“I think he’s coming around,” I said. Billy had wanted to attend to my high-school graduation. But the thought of my famous father in small town Beaverton, Oregon near all my friends figuratively made me break out in hives.

Pete nodded. “All right, but don’t take too long. We’re excited to celebrate with you.”

“Got it.” I smiled brightly. My gown fluttered in the early summer wind, I’d left my cap in the car. “Tell Gabe to save me a seat next to him.” Pete and Mel’s son Gabe had graduated with me and was set for a full-ride football scholarship to OSU. As for me, I’d be off to New York in a few weeks to attend college. Strolling the sidewalk, I peeked at my phone. It wasn’t my father.


Mystery number: Hi.

Me: Hi. Who’s this?

Mystery number: Warren Price. Remember me?


If it’s possible for your heart to fall straight out of your chest, mine did.


Me: Yeah. How’d you get my number?

Warren: I know people who know people.

Me: Huh?

Warren: It’s the digital age, babe. Not hard to find someone’s phone number. The right YouTube video and I could give myself a vasectomy.

Me: Would you really do that?

Warren: What?

Me: Give yourself a vasectomy?

Warren: Hell, no. But I could.

Warren: You still there?

Me: It’s been a long time.

Warren: Sorry about that. Been thinking about you, though.

Me: Yeah?

Me: I don’t think this is a good idea, you and me talking. Billy doesn’t want us to be friends.

Warren: I disagree. I think this is the best idea I’ve ever had. Besides, last time I checked we were a little more than friends. What you been up to?

Me: In a nutshell? Billy sent me away to live in BFE. Since then… Went to school dances. Drank my first bottle of peach schnapps. Saw Twilight four times.

Warren: Damn. That’s a lot of living for a small town.

Me: I know. Mind blown, right? How about you, what have you been up to?

Warren: Got booted from Billy’s celestial limelight just like you, working the dive bar circuit again.

Me: Ouch. Sorry.

Warren: Not your fault.

Warren: Shit. Got to go. About to the take the stage at a honkey-tonk in Nashville. This should be interesting. We don’t play country.

Me: All right.

Warren: Okay if I text you again?

Me: Thumbs up.

Warren: Did you just text me the words: thumbs up?

Me: Yep. My emoji button is broken. Sad face.

Warren: Okay then.

Me: Okay.


Charlotte West writes romance about strong heroines and the sexy alpha males who love them. She lives in Washington state with her husband and very large dog (think miniature pony size). She spends way too much money on books, and way too much time reading. When she’s not reading, she’s feeding her reality television addiction, eating chocolate, or traveling. She’s been known to consume her weight in Girl Scout cookies.

She has a degree in Science and a Master’s in Education, neither of which she is currently using but is still paying for. Occasionally, she moonlights as a YA author.
