The guys from ShadowsForge are beginning the last American leg of their long tour.  For once, there doesn’t seem to be any danger following them around. But that does not mean that this leg will be simply travel to the gig, play and then go on to the next one.   First off, Geoff Richards ends up accused of something with a staff member that could not only end the tour immediately but also cause the band to pull apart forever.  Geoff also knows that it could be Valerie that finally joins him.  Second Jordan Cantrell realizes that he wants in his life what Ty and Geoff seem to have: someone to be with him and travel with him instead of endless one-night stands.  Jordan believes he has found that someone right after Geoff’s escapade, and brings her along for the tour.  The long tour, the dangers that have followed them at every turn and the rest of the changes and additions have emotions and reactions on edge.  Will ShadowsForge still be playing together and friends by the end of the tour, or will they degenerate into individual parts?

Retaking America is the third book concerning the latest tour of ShadowsForge, a British rock band.  While there is not just one hero and heroine in this book, it describes and follows not only the guys’ relationship with each other, but also those of the individual band members and what is happening in their lives as the tour goes on.  I have to say that I was a bit worried about a few of the band members, but Ms. Galifany was able to give each of them what they wanted and/or needed by the end.   I was pleasantly surprised and pleased to find that two had their happy ever after, two had found that their hearts weren’t as broken as they thought, and the last member was still doing his share to cause the chaos.  Retaking America answers several questions and leaves the reader wondering if that is the last we will see of the sexy and hot rock band members.  If you have read any of the first two books in this series then Retaking America is a must read. 

While you do not have to read the first book before the second, I highly recommend that book two be read prior to book three.
