How do you teach a rock star how to meditate?
The number one question on Stéphanie’s mind sounds like the start of a bad joke, and life would be a whole lot easier if she actually knew the punch line.
Her meditation coach job description said nothing about private lessons for the most infamous lead singer in Montreal, but somehow Stéphanie still finds herself sitting cross-legged on a yoga mat, right next to a pierced and tattooed music legend who’d rather be anywhere else.
Meditation classes are Ace’s final chance to convince his record label that the last bender he went on really was his last. The demons that have sent him to the bottom of countless bottles might not give a damn about ‘soothing rhythmic chanting,’ but it’s either this or game over for his career.
He’s not what she wants. She’s not what he’s looking for. Yet somewhere amidst all the incense fumes, the lines between student and teacher get blurred.
Even as their deep breathing exercises become nights filled with panting and gasps, Stéphanie can’t ignore the darkness that never quite leaves Ace’s eyes. It’s a darkness she knows far too well, and if she’s not careful, the cost of helping Ace find his way might just be losing herself.
Your Echo is part of the Sherbrooke Station Quartet, a series of steamy rock star standalones from author Katia Rose.
I didn’t notice the lines in his face until they were gone, didn’t see the tension that kept his brow furrowed and his mouth tight even when he smiled, but the change in Ace Turner right now is almost too drastic to believe. He doesn’t look younger, just...lighter, like he had a burnt out bulb someone came along and replaced. I make sure he’s going to keep his eyes shut, and then I let myself trace the angles of his face with my gaze. He might try to hide it with tattoos and tattered clothing, but he doesn’t have the face of a rock star. His features are too polished, his cheeks too hollow and his lips too full for him to have the same kind of rugged appeal as the other guys in his band. They’re all whiskey shots and beer bottles; Ace Turner has a face that was made to sip champagne.
Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
