Next In Line by J. Bengtsson is now live!
Just six years old when my brother was snatched off the street, I grew up in the aftermath of tragedy. While other kids were happily playing in the sandbox, I was hiding under press conference podiums listening to my parents beg for Jake’s safe return.
People ask if I’m screwed up after what happened, and I never know how to respond. Life after the kidnapping is all I’ve ever known. Well, that and being the youngest brother to a rock star. Jake was the ultimate survivor. The prodigal son. My king.
But I’m not that worshipful kid anymore, and I’m tired of walking a step behind. I’ve got the talent. I’ve got the drive. And now I’m coming for Jake’s throne.
What to do with a runaway rock star in my passenger seat?
Jess of yore would’ve jumped at the chance. Hell, she’d already be in his lap by now. She was fearless and fun and sexy. She lived like there was no tomorrow… until tomorrow came calling and delivered her an ultimatum: repent or risk losing it all.
And so responsible Jess was born, the good girl who paid her rent and watered her plants and put others before herself. The new, improved version of myself represented stability and a roof overhead. Yet sometimes… sometimes I missed that reckless girl. Wild Jess. God, she’d been so fun.
And now Quinn was here, built like a god and asking me to play. One mindless afternoon of fun.
Surely I could spare that for a future rock legend. I could bring old Jess back for just one day.
What could possibly go wrong?

Due to the devastating event that occurred in his childhood Quinn has always felt like he couldn’t measure up to his big brother and that has only become more apparent as he sees him living the professional dream he has always wanted. Just when he thinks he may have the chance to prove that he is a rising star he realizes that the strings that go along with it come at a cost he isn’t willing to pay. He never expected that his escape plan would change his life.
Jess has learnt that with risks come consequences and she can’t afford to go down that road again. She is determined to be the person that those she is closest to need her to be and that doesn’t include getting involved with a rock star when it could be detrimental to both of them. One afternoon is all that she can give him but what happens if that is not enough?
There is no denying the connection between them, both physically and emotionally, and that they give each other exactly what was missing in both their lives but only time will tell if that is enough to overcome all the challenges they must face.
