HARLEQUIN - Carina Press, Carina Press
Double bassist for the philharmonic by day, by night she’s Queen Roe—an underground DJ with a growing following. Nyah works tirelessly to keep her worlds separate, her names straight and her outfits square, but doing it all alone is overwhelming. When Tommy “Boombox” Mills offers his rep and experience in exchange for her underground cred, she agrees.
But she makes the rules. No big stages, no superstar fame. She knows what she wants out of her DJ career, and she’s not about to let some slick agent tell her different, even if he does have a smile that knocks her backward.
A powerhouse agent, Tommy knows the scene, and Queen Roe is on fire. Beautiful, sexy and talented, she’s exactly what he needs to secure his legacy. She was made to play on the big stage—all he has to do is convince her.
As they travel in close quarters, playing club after club, their partnership soon becomes more about pleasure than business. But when Nyah learns the truth about why Tommy recruited her, she’s forced to decide once and for all what she wants out of her career—and her life.

Wow! I loved this one - my first by JN Welsh but definitely not the last. Nyah, aka Queen Roe, can't stand Tommy, aka Boombox, but they need each other professionally. And so they end up working together and eventually, after resistance, falling in love with each other. The romance was sizzling (I love that the hot scenes had explicit consent from both sides), the storyline and insights into both classical & EDM wonderfully woven into each other, and the settings + side characters well rounded and enticing for more - more live music, more living in the moment, more connection with great friends, more doing what I love. This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.
