Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway: "Tracks" by Sarah Biermann

Tour Host:


When Harvard Law student, Dylan Ackhart, moves to Boston with her best friend- the last thing she expects to find is Jeremy Mason. Jeremy is sexy, smart, and passionate- and currently the most famous rock star in the world.

From the first moment Dylan meets Jeremy, she's attracted to him. But she soon finds the fame and press can wear on you. Plus, Jeremy seems to be hiding things from her- including his relationship with the mysterious blue-haired girl.

Tracks takes you on a ride through the not so glamorous side of dating a rock star- sex, drugs, rock and roll.

5 'dark' Stars 

"...when you love someone, their problems become your problems, and their pain becomes your pain."

 Talk about a book hangover! "Tracks" is a dark, raw, and emotional book that blew me away. I was seriously speechless after I finished it. But I must warn you though, this is not your typical bad boy, rock star romance kind of book. Yes, there's romance and yes, there are hot scenes, but the story line covers some really rough and serious topics. 

It all starts with an acceptance letter. Finally having her dream come true, Dylan Ackhart moves to Boston with her best friend Theresa to attend Harvard Law School. I must say, Theresa and Dylan's banter made me giggle. They were total opposites and loved teasing each other. 

"I'm just so happy for you," she says in my ear. "I thought you were asexual for a while." 

"You? A date?" I say, in mock horror. 
"You? Sex?" She says in the same voice. I laugh as she shuts the door."

One night, they go to a rock concert to which Theresa's parents got them front row seats. Little did Dylan know, that night would change her life. There she meets rock star, Jeremy Mason. After literally being trampled by crazy ass fans, Dylan is taken backstage so a doctor can examine her. Wanting to know Dylan, Jeremy asks to speak with her, and this is where the rollercoaster takes off. 

As they start spending more and more time together, you notice certain things in Jeremy... you know there's more to him that meets the eye. Honestly, there were moments where I thought their relationship was too messed up. Jeremy was broken and full of secrets and Dylan was too scared to face them and lose him in the process. PLUS, Dylan had her own scars to deal with. So it was pretty stressful.  But at the same time, I was really rooting for them to work things out. They were just so full of passion and love, how could I not want them to get a HEA???   

"I don't want anyone else to touch you. I don't want anyone else to feel you ever again. I want your lips, your body, everything to myself. I want to be selfish with you. I want you to be mine, even when I'm gone."

"...goddammit Dylan, I love you. I've never loved anything before in my whole life, except my brother, and that was different. No one makes me feel the way you do. I need you."

 I seriously found myself feeling like I wasn't turning the pages fast enough! Wanting to know what Jeremy was hiding... and then, BAM! "WHAT!!!!!!!!!" I mean, I had my theories and all...and yet my heart still sunk! "Oh no no no noooo!!!" I honestly felt like I was watching a train wreck slowly unravel in front of me, yet I could not look the other way*deep sigh*

As far as the ending goes... Sort of  a cliffhanger. It doesn't end abruptly or anything, but there is a lot more to their story. The sequel, "Trials," is expected sometime during August.

This well written book has a style that is different and in a way, gripping and challenging. It evokes certain feelings and might even cause your emotions to run wild... so I guess I kind of get why it's gotten mixed reviews. Not everyone can handle that, if I'm being completely honest. But I really think people should go into this book keeping an open mind. I did, and I LOVED it. In fact, to me, "Tracks" is a phenomenal book

I recommend you read this book

"As unhealthy as our relationship may be, it doesn't make me love him any less."


Nook edition will be available after August


I make a disgusted sound in my throat. “I am totally fucked up by what my mother did to me,” I say, still aghast at his reaction to my story.

Fucked up?he questions, confused. “Why? Because you’re shy? Because you’re private? Because you don’t like to be vulnerable? Because you strive to achieve great things to prove you’re good enough to be worth something?

The way he instantly knows me makes me very uncomfortable. I freeze, wide eyed and unable to speak for a moment. How could he see me so clearly? How did this connection between us go so deeply? It was disturbing to me, the understanding between us. It’s deeper than even the physical pull between us, as if the air that separates our bodies is electrically charged. I had worked my whole life to push people away, building up this wall of protection. And yet here is this man, tearing it down and seeing who I am through all the bullshit. Maybe I'm not as good at hiding myself as I thought.

“Yeah,” I finally muttered. “Those reasons are pretty much why.”

“It makes you beautiful. The things you say it created in you... are what attract me to you in this unbelievable way. You’re timid, shy, brilliant, and completely unaware of how amazing you are.”

I go statue still. My heart feels like it’s going to explode at his words. How did our conversation change course so quickly? I don’t know if I’m prepared for this. “Amazing?” I repeat in disbelief.

He smiles a catlike smile, like he’s hunting again. Immediately, my breathing increases. “Oh yes. When I first saw your eyes from the stage,he leans closer to me. I want to both back away and lean toward him at the same time. “I wanted to make them roll back into your head. I wanted to grab your round hips and pull you close to me.” He crouches on the couch, one leg on and one leg off, leaning over me. With his face against my cheek again, he whispers in my ear, “You. Are. Breathtaking.”
