“I wasn’t looking for love, only a good time and a way to tour the world with a rock band when he came along and hit me like a hurricane. Nothing could have prepared for me for the complexity that was Will Cullen. He hid a secret that would devour me whole and spit me out. The only problem I had was how did I let go when I decided to give my heart to the very man I would never be able to control and who would always be just beyond my reach?” – Laurel Munsen
Will Cullen has always been comfortable in his own skin, even it was behind the scenes as the bass player for Scarlet Fever. He’s always known he was gay and accepted his sexuality even if he couldn’t be out and proud as a member of one of the most popular rock bands in the world.
Laurel was supposed to be a diversion, a beard to hide behind while he and his lover, drummer Grant MacMullen, continued their hot and heavy relationship. Grant breaks his heart and admits there can never be a future between them.
It is Laurel who picks up the pieces and although he knows what they have together is wrong and conforming to society’s standards of what love supposed to be, how can he rectify his strong attraction and desire for men while he is falling in love with a woman?
Both Laurel and Will learn the fluidity of human emotions and together, they gather the strength and courage to live life, understand each other and love with heart, body, mind and soul.
Note: This story is about a homosexual man who happens to fall in love with a heterosexual woman but it does not negate his homosexual status nor is the author implying sexuality is a choice; rather that most of the time, we don’t and cannot choose the person we fall in love with and decide to give our heart and soul.

I am having a hard time reviewing this book, not because it wasn’t good, but because I felt like I was missing something. This is the second book in this series and I read book 1 first.
The Will To Love is Will and Laurel’s story. Will, although publicly still in the closet, is a homosexual man. He has had a long relationship with his best friend & band mate Grant. Even when he started dating Laurel. There was just something different about her and he was attracted to her unlike any other woman he had ever met.
Laurel knew Will and Grant’s relationship was still going on even though they were together and she was about at her breaking point. She was tired of being called a “beard” plus Grant was dating her sister Sasha. Before she could say anything to Will he comes home to tell her that it’s over with Grant.
As Will and Laurel work on building a relationship their past catches up to them and can ruin them both if it falls in the wrong hands. As the story progressed I felt like Will did indeed fall in love with Laurel and I was happy with how it all turned out.
I have never given a 3 star review and it breaks my heart to do so, but there were several things that were nerve wracking and I would skim over those things. The description of every piece of clothing, shoes, purses, phones, etc was a little on the vain side to me and unnecessary every few pages. So between that and the fact that I felt so lost I cannot give this book more than 3 stars.
