🏳️‍🌈 Code Red 🏳️‍🌈 N.R Walker 🏳️‍🌈



 Release date: 24th June 2021

 Maddox Kershaw is the main vocalist of the world’s biggest boy band. He’s at the top of every music chart, every award show, every social media platform, and every sexiest-man-alive list. He’s the bad boy, the enigma, the man everyone on the planet wants a piece of.

He’s also burned out and exhausted, isolated and lonely. Not in a good headspace at the start of a tour.

Roscoe Hall is Maddox’s personal manager. His job is high-flying, high-demand, high-profile, and he loves it. Maddox has consumed his entire life for the past four years. Roscoe knows him. He sees the real Maddox no one else gets to see.
He’s also in love with him.

When the tour and stress become too much, when the world begins to close in, Roscoe becomes Maddox’s lifeline. But as Maddox knows already, and as Roscoe is about to learn, the brighter the spotlight, the darker the shadow.

ARC received from author for an honest review

N.R Walker, you had me at rock star!



Sigh. Maddox and Roscoe are just so dreamy (whoops, that's the sound of my teenage, NKOTB, boy band loving self coming out!)

But seriously, how much did I adore Code Red? Yeah, that much.

I loved that this didn't just show the "OMG being an rock star is awesome" side of the business,

I loved that is showed the toll that fame takes on the body, mind and relationships.

But most of all, I LOVED Maddox and Roscoe finally taking that one giant leap from friends to more. It is a slow burn from pining for each other to a relationship full of love, caring, support. I adored how grounding Roscoe is for Maddox, It showed such love, such trust between two vulnerable men.

Thank you NR Walker for normalising mental illness/anxiety/depression too.

I ran the full gamut of emotions whilst I was reading Code Red,  From the banter between the 5 best friends that had me laughing out loud, to the not so subtle looks across the room that that had me swooning, I enjoyed each and every moment of reading this book.

In fact, I think this is a new favourite from this author for me.

I do hope that in the future we do get more of the stories of the rest of the boys in the band.
