Guest Post: The Boys of DownCrash by London Casey

London Casey, author of New Adult Contemporary Romance series, The Boys of DownCrash, has stopped by to share her inspiration behind the words. Check it out below:

Inspiration Behind the Series

DownCrash is the band in my newest new adult romance series titled The Boys of DownCrash.  They’re a three piece band and each band member gets their own book.

The series came to me after seeing a couple local bands playing shows and seeing how dedicated their local fan bases were.  Not to mention getting to know some of the band members… and maybe perhaps I, too, play an instrument or three and have a few stories of my own to share.

Tripp – in the first book (The Stronger, Safe Kind), readers get to meet Tripp.  He’s got attitude, tattoos, and a big heart.  From the second he and Scarlett see each other, there’s a connection.  But Scarlett is struggling with her own heart after the confession from her close friend, Andy, when he gets drunk and says he loves her.  Andy can give Scarlett an easy life but Tripp’s past and his deepest secrets coul possibly be enough to get Scarlett to open up about her hidden past too.

Tatum – the super sexy drummer.  He’s tall.  No tattoos.  But he has piercings.  His lip… and somewhere else.  When Tatum starts fooling around Scarlett’s roommate, Maggie, things get hot and heavy pretty quick.  But then things start to unravel when someone from Maggie’s past comes back, demanding a chance at her future.  This isn’t just love and it isn’t just romance… this could possibly mean life and death.

Logan – the quiet but hot bassist.  In his book, Logan finally gets a chance to open up.  He meets Maggie’s best friend from high school, Annie, and the last thing he’s looking for is a romance.  But he can’t help it… he can’t help falling for her… but then fate steps in and Logan feels he’s in the middle of a cruel game. 

I hope everyone enjoys this trilogy and continues reading beyond The Boys of DownCrash! My next trilogy is coming out this fall!

All Scarlett wanted to do was thank the sexy stranger who helped her push away a drunk, grabby college boy at a bar. When that stranger identifies himself as Tripp and then takes the stage as the lead singer and guitarist for rock band, DownCrash, everything in Scarlett's life begins to change.

Her best friend, Andy, confesses his love for her and leaves her with what should be an easy decision to make... yet each time she looks in Andy's eyes, she can't help but face her secret, nightmarish past.

Trying to forget about the promises she was forced to make as a young, naive eighteen year old, Maggie creates a false persona that paints her as the girl who never says no...

However, once she lays eyes on the drummer of DownCrash, everything clicks. From his sexy lip ring to the way he stares at her from the stage, Tatum becomes everything Maggie has ever fantasized about. 

When trouble catches up to her in a parking garage after a DownCrash show, and Tatum shows up out of nowhere to protect her. For the first time in years, she is intimidated by a man's kindness and sexiness, and not by his temper and jealousy.

Logan wants more for his life. The past is living in his apartment, which forces him to spend nights in his car to avoid reliving the nightmare over and over again.

When Annie's guard comes down, tragedy strikes and their lives will be changed forever. Determined to win Annie over and help DownCrash get signed to a record deal, Logan has his work cut out for him. His gorgeous body and no-bullshit personality may just be the key to both...
