When The Lights Go Out

BY JACKIE MOJICA I received When the Lights Go Out from the author, Jackie Mojica, in exchange for an honest review.  This is an adult romance about a woman named Rain who falls in love with a famous Rockstar, Damen.

From the first page, I knew it was a well-crafted, solidly structured story. I was in awe. Then, at half-way through, it had me wanting to go out and change the world.
