Sleeping with the Band by Dee Dawning


Michael's Synopsis:
It’s 1967, the Summer of Love, and Kansas band Maidenhead has been booked to play at the Monterey Pop Festival. After an epic set, the five-man band retires to their RV for some R&R. The appearance of hot blonde flower-girl Carol, who is in need of assistance after being accidentally drenched in beer, puts an exclamation point on the evening. Things take their natural course, and Carol is soon enjoying the attentions of all five band members.

Michael's Review:
The set-up to this story is one that could easily have been taken too far—the now-legendary MPF included performances by The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, and Simon & Garfunkel, to name just a few of the star-studded list—but thankfully the author doesn’t overplay his hand. We get to the sex pretty quickly, and it’s not just a parade of connections—there is some depth to it and some nice twists at the end that put a satisfying spin on the story. If I have a criticism, it’s that the perspectives shift around a bit too fast, in places disrupting the rhythm. But this is only a minor quibble on a well-done piece.

“Tami, it's Carol.”
“Carol. Where are you?”
“I'm in a diner in San Luis Obispo.”
“What are you doing there?”
“I've been driving.”
“Where to?”
“I needed to get away.”
“Get away? You're missing the rehearsal?”
“I know, I'm sorry. Cover for me will you?”
“Of course. But why?”
“I feel caged. I need to get away. I need to do something I want, while I can.”
“What are you going to do?”
“I don't know yet. Whatever, I feel like.”

  1. Hey Michael, Thanks for the straight forward, positive review. I liked your synopsis as well and if you don't mind, I'd like to incorporate it into my blurb.

    Ciao, Dee
