Series: Off Track Records #4
Author: Kacey Shea
Genre: Rock Star Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2019
Cocky and self-assured, I’m confident when it comes to my skills both on stage and in the bedroom. Everything in my life is perfect, even if I am the last single man standing in our famed rock band.
But it wasn’t always this way.
Jayla knew me before I hit it big. Back when I was a skinny teen, chasing dreams without a penny to my name. Now she’s back in my life and so much more than the girl I remember. Fiercely loyal, beautiful and badass. She walked out of my life before, and I won’t let that happen again.
They say some songs are better on the second take, and if there’s one thing I know for sure, this is our time for a replay.
Replay is the fourth and final book in the Off Track Records novels, but can also be read as a standalone.
When I started this series, I was addicted from the very beginning. This book was no different. Austin and Jayla were interesting characters, and I loved that there was the added suspense. I was on the edge of my seat to see how their relationship would work out as well as how they would stay safe and work things out with their new label.
Austin was an intriguing character in this book. Always the one to lighten the mood with an inappropriate joke, it was interesting to watch him step up and take the lead on some things. It was also fun to watch him with Jayla as he worked to win her over. There were definitely new layers to him as we saw so much of his past and his struggle to protect those he loves.
And Jayla was great. She was strong and independent (sometimes to a fault), but she was also vulnerable. She had her own struggles to overcome from a past that couldn’t be undone, but had to be overcome. Her past was difficult to read at times, but it was tastefully written. I loved watching her put Austin in his place, but I also loved watching her open up to him and let him in.
There were a couple of times I worried this book was taking on a bit too much, but in the end it worked out well. The characters stayed true to themselves and the story remained focused on these characters and their story.
Fans of the series will love revisiting each of the other couples and seeing all the new developments. However, this can be read as a standalone, but I can’t imagine you won’t want to go back and see where it all began. I can’t wait to see what Kacey has in mind for us next.

“I’m sorry.” My throat constricts and I swallow.
“Okay.” She stares over my shoulder.
“Shit.” I shove my hands into the front pockets of my jeans. “I’m an idiot most of the time, and I make jokes. Because that’s what I do.”
Her chin lifts, and her gaze meets mine. “I thought you played guitar.”
“Yeah. I mean, sure.” I rock back on my heels and shrug. “But I’m the guy who lightens the mood when things get too intense. I don’t have a filter. At least, I’ve ignored it for a long time.”
“Well, I don’t think you’re funny.” She crosses her arms over her chest.
“Yeah, I’m getting that vibe.” I should win an award for self-control because I don’t allow my gaze to drop from hers once, even though her tits must look fantastic pressed together by her arms.
“Then why say shit you know is gonna piss me off?” She lifts a brow and I swear there’s a slight hint of a smile.
“Because you’re hot when you’re mad.” I chew the inside of my cheek.
She blinks as if I’m stupid. “Really?”
“It’s true! I’m not even kidding. It’s kind of a turn on how badass you’ve become.” I hold up my hands, because I’m being completely honest. “Can we have a re-do? I’ll try not to be an asshole, and maybe sometimes you can smile.”
She rolls her eyes, but her tone is light. “You really think that’s possible?”
“I mean, sure.” I wink and give her my most charming grin. “You’re totally fighting it right now. Come on. I know you wanna smile.”
“Oh, Austin.” She glances up at the ceiling and only then gives in to a grin. She shakes her head and meets my gaze. “What am I going to do with you?”
“I’d prefer something very, very dirty. But”—I quickly amend before she quits on the spot or punches me in the balls—“I want to get to know you again. I missed you, Jay. You were my best friend.”
