Out From Under by Selene Chardou

"I have always been strong, independent and wanted a life that belonged to me. It's the very reason why I chose to attend Stanford because it is away from the small-town life that seems more Twin Peaks than charming. Secrets are a dangerous commodity and Pine Bluff has them in spades. So do my parents, and the dirtiest secret of all is my brother, Trey. Sergeant at Arms for the Demon's Bastards, a criminal, a felon, and perhaps the catalyst for the tragedy that destroyed my life just days before I was supposed to leave for college.
"Now I am on the run because my life is in danger and I could be next. I don't want to live my whole life looking over my shoulder and I don't want to live my life shrouded in despair. Anxiety has me in a death grip, unable to let go. I pop Xanax to get through the day and were it not for my famous cousin, I would probably be dead already.
"My name is Trista Lennon, and I am tired of being afraid."
Linx Carter never thought he could help anyone when he could barely help himself. He is hanging on by a thread after a tough, six-month Gods of Rock Tour with his band, Winter's Regret, and Scarlet Fever. He has a greedy ex-wife, two sons and all he wants is to put the pieces of his life back together.
Linx knows there is something special about Trista from the moment they meet. She's wounded, in desperate need of a friend yet feminine, feisty and no one's charity case. She is the strongest woman he has ever known.
Through their friendship, they will find the strength to heal themselves and love one another but a feud between two gangs is brewing. Trista is caught in the crossfire, and by proxy, so is Linx. What they discover might not only cost them the love they have for one another but their lives too.
Due to mature subject matter, explicit language and adult situations, this novel is recommended for those over the age of 17.
My Review:
This is like SOA (Sons of Anarchy) mixed with  a Rock Band  Romance book. Out Form Under is the first book in the Lovers Duet series.

(SOA)This story is about bikers, MC clubs, family, and sudden mysterious deaths. I have read a bunch of Rock Band romance books both contemporary and Paranormal but never one with a huge MC side story.  
The majority of Trista's family are in deep with the MC.  Her parents are the Accountants, (Key title for chief book cookers)  Suddenly 2/3 of the family are dead in a car crash. Suspicious Hmmmmm. 
About half way through the book you meet Trista's cousin (lead singer of the band) who gets her to work for her as an assistant. That is where Trista meets Linx is the base player and love interest. Linx is damaged goods from a bad marriage. a rock star who doesn't believe in love or happily ever after since his first marriage ended so bad. 
This is an interesting pot of dysfunctional people leaning on each other and finding their way, new lives, and new love.
