    Marco Chase is the lead singer for Static, one of the world’s most famous and successful rock bands. Marco’s bad boy rock star image isn’t just one he’s cultivated for his fans—it’s Marco all over. Marco’s past is full of one night stands, bad decisions, and blackouts. Marco never saw a cage he didn’t want to rattle—and from the moment he lays eyes on him, he really wants to rattle sweet, innocent Ben Selden’s cage.

    Ben Selden comes from a fundamentalist Baptist family. Ben is struggling under the weight of knowing that he’s gay, and a lifetime’s teachings that tell him that his God will condemn him, and his family reject him, if they ever find out. With a future he doesn't want already mapped out for him, Ben’s at a breaking point when he meets Marco.

    Marco’s teasing, flirting, and obvious interest awakens a hunger in Ben, and he knows this might be his only chance to act on his attraction to a man—if he’s brave enough to risk his future, and his family, to take it. He doesn’t expect Marco to be his savior, but maybe a savior isn’t what Ben needs—maybe he just needs someone to believe in him enough that he’s willing to save himself.

    Because of Ben is the second book in the Star Crossed series, where regular guys meet famous ones, and sparks fly.

    Good story. Good narration.

    So... I usually avoid stories that have main characters with extremely religious backgrounds. Sometimes if you hated the experience, you really can't stomach reliving it. I started the series so I decided to keep reading even if it pushed a few rage buttons for me.

    The dynamic between the two MCs is interesting, but I struggled to relate to Ben. His character is a bit...flat. Maybe it was just his background that I didn't appreciate. The conflict is handled pretty well. Ben and Marco are from different worlds, but they find common ground.

    Overall a good read with very good narration.

    I will be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to like the story due to the religious undertones. I just find myself getting so angry with religion and how it pertains to the LGBTQIA+ community. I know it’s a real thing, but it just makes me so mad. However, The author did a really nice job of making it real and also making the main character of Ben really strong. He did struggle like any man would do who was raised with a fundamental belief system while also coming to terms with his sexuality. I did shed a tear or two.
    Marco Chase was fun and charismatic, his ADD almost a third character. I get it!
    Gary Furlong did a great job as well!
