What happens when the school’s quirkiest band geek starts a rock band with three of the hottest guys in varsity football royalty?
Well, pretty soon, I’m not just “with” the band.
I’m with the band. The whole band
What could possibly go wrong?

You know, besides everything.

They’re panty-meltingly gorgeous, cocky, and three of the biggest stars on the varsity football team. I’m the dorkiest, tuba-playing music-geek this side of band camp. In a school full of rules and cliques and clichés, Anders Teller, Griffin Reeves, Carson Lafayette and I have nothing to do with each other.

Except, I’m about to have everything to do with them. With all of them.

They’re the last thing I expect when I sneak off campus after curfew to audition for an up-and-coming rock band. Neither is finding them mostly naked when I show up, or falling—yes, literally falling—into their arms…

Everyone says to keep clear of crazy-hot musicians. They say the same thing about totally beautiful, ridiculously tempting football jocks, too. So what’s a girl to do when she comes across a stupid-hot combination of both?

There’s three of them, and one of me. And before long, it’s not just the practice room that’s rocking and rolling…

One never-been-touched nerd, three huge, utterly tempting jocks, and three whispered words that make my toes curl: “we’re gonna share.”

As The Bard says, if music be the food of love, play on.

Well, something tells me we’re about to play all night.


Each of the Winchester Academy books are completely standalone stories, with no cliffhangers.
This mfmm romance is all about her – no m/m. Safe, no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

    I have to admit that I may or may not have needed a “bathroom” break while reading this. Whoa! This was so hot and filthy and just plain dirty that I might have also needed a nice cold shower. Phew! I’m still feeling flushed just from reading this. This was such a great story! You have Zara connecting with the three guys through music and also showing that they’re more than just jock football players. We get a few glimpses of the other characters and their stories as well and I just can’t wait for the rest of this series.

    What a wild story!!!

    Zara is the epitome of “band geek”, but she’s also got more going on than people think. So when she sneaks off campus to audition for a rock band, she ends up surprising the three hot jocks looking for a lead singer. Carson, Anders and Griffin can’t believe the hot, sexy chick in front of them is the same girl who plays tuba in the marching band. But they’ve heard her sing and they need her and now they just need to convince her that she needs them too. This is a super hot, steamy read and I highly recommend it.

    One became phwoarrrr!!! This was a hot bed/couch/desk of saucy, dirty and sexiness all wrapped into this book. Love meeting new characters from Winchester or getting to know ones that have made a brief appearance in another book and this one went all the way. I did find it was too many lovers at once and it was all going on at the same time but I enjoyed it and Madison did what Madison does best, leaves you flushed and wanting more!!

  4. Aunt G

    Every book in this delicious series has been naughty and hot but, OMG, this one really took things to a whole new level. You could not help swooning over Anders, Griffin and Carson. These friends are big, strong and intense. They share a talent for football, a craving to play music and a passion for Zara Bateman. Zara was fun, gifted and quite honestly, one very lucky band geek, that will leave you totally jealous. The storyline is filled with heat, humor, drama and emotions. A real scorcher of a read!

    Would I recommend this book = Yes
    Would I read future books by this author = Yes

    This novella is about Zara Bateman, Anders Teller, Carson Lafayette, and Griffin Reeves.

    This whole series is seriously amazing! Each can be read as a standalone and in any order

    ♡Plot was great. So much hotness and a little bit of drama.
    ♡The characters were all likeable.

    <This was a hot novella but I wanted more of the hotness. Maybe one more chapter of all of them together in compromising positions. *fans self*

  6. Letitia bennion

    Oh My! This book almost set my tablet on fire! The nerdy band geek Zara happens to fall into the 3 hottest jocks at her school. Put the 4 of them together and the stage just gets hot! I thought it was a good story even it not realistic to a lot of people. I know some of us would love to be put in that situation! This book may not be for every one but I would read it again!

  7. Susan Stegemann

    Madison Faye books are terrific stories and I couldn’t put it down! Her books just get hotter and hotter and full of sexy alphas and smutty sassy heroine! Highly recommend you read this fast paced and fun series! Each story just gets better and better! I can’t remember enjoying an author as much as I do Madison Faye! Her characters are terrific and you can’t wait to see what happens next! Look forward to the next one in this series! Long write the Queen !

    “I received a copy of this book as a ARC for a Voluntary, completely honest, and non-incentivized review.”

    OMG!!! Madison Faye is on fire and just wont stop with these hot and sexy as hell, super fast reads she keeps putting out for us. All i can say is OMG…. keep’em cuming!!! If your looking for a fast read that’s over the top with yumminess, then I highly recommend you grab up “Banned (Winchester Academy, Book 4)” and all the books in this series…… you won’t be disappointed ♨️

  9. Vivian C

    A weird mashup…

    “Sex, love, football, and rock n’ roll”…. this sums this one up perfectly! Every school has it’s “clicks” and they aren’t supposed to mix. Zara is the “band nerd”. Anders, Carson and Griffin are the “football royalty”. What happens when these four cross the “click” boundaries? Let’s just say that the four mashup real nice…

    *I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book which I am voluntarily reviewing*

    Zara, the band geek girl plus Carson, Anders and Griffin the sexy jocks together? Whoddathunkit?? Well The 3 jocks know that they need Zara in their band and more, in their lives after she surprised them with her voice and her body. The hijinks, the chemistry, feels, passion is electrifying. The ending was fantastic!! Ms. Faye is on a home run with series. I just love the characters, plot and can’t wait to read what’s next.

    My Rating: 4.5 stars ******

  11. Cate

    Zara a geeky nerd who’s a bad ass rock chick really.
    Anders, Carson and griffin three jocks who have a secret rock band chasing glory.
    Zara joins the band and can’t believe the boys know who she is.
    The guys can’t believe how amazing zaras singing is.
    The 4 of them together are incredible, explosive and extremely hot. The chemistry that’s to intense to be ignored.
    Loved it!!

  12. Lilu

    This is a voluntary ARC review. The multiple partners is so last years theme. However, this author knows how to write multiple partners better than any other author I’ve read so far. Yes, it’s over the top, and above and beyond scandalous, but it’s the way this authors writes it, that keeps it naughty without being stomach churning raunchy. This topic isn’t my favorite, but it’s well written, she has high standards, and still a very good read. I have yet to hate or dislike anything this author has written.

  13. Lene

    Naughty, sexy and fun read. Madison Faye never stops to amaze me with her intriguing stories.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

  14. mmouse

    As a geek myself, I will always love the idea of the geek getting the hot football player. Or three. Most definitely three. She has such sass in her. For some reason I guess I wasn’t expecting that. She’s feisty, I love it!

  15. Tracey7191

    OMG that cover alone is so hot. Nicely written with plenty of filthy fun. I’ve enjoyed all of this series so far and highly recommend them all.

    Zara is a musical prodigy at Winchester Academy, playing multiple instruments along with writing music with lyrics, excelling in her studies, and has a killer comic book collection, a perfect geek…who is noticed by three jocks on their football team who formed a band. They need Zara who is not only cute, but sexy with her glasses and sassy attitude. So she snuck off campus for the first time ever to meet the band, Chasing Glory and is surprised to see the young men from campus, wondering if they really play music…and they are all into her with them all wanting to taste a bit of Zara, but you will need to read this steamy story to see if three football players can win the upcoming Battle of the Bands with a hot band geek. I voluntarily read this book through an Advanced Reader Copy from the author.

  17. Tonja

    Oh boy is this a great way to spend the day, both by reading and acting out out a few scenes. Goodness it is so scandalous and fun! I’m loving this series! Of course Madison Faye always leaves you turned on and dripping! A must read.

    I received an advanced copy for a honest review.

  18. stephanie gregory

    I’m voluntarily writing a review for a ARC I received and let me tell you this was an awesome book! I have loved every book from this series so far and this this one with three guys willing to share one girl what more could a woman ask for? I highly recommend medicine Facebook’s and especially this series can’t wait to see the next book that comes out.

  19. Tai Nelson-Barnes

    Banned is why I read Madison. I have to say though that since Madison has been banned from Amazon (for whatever reason), Madison is writing with her heart. This series is kick ass! Banned is a heart filled story about three boys who everyone loves for their football glory. But if these people only knew that they have rock in their heart also.

    Zara is a band geek that knows how to work about every musical instrument she can get her hands on. When she shows up to be the newest singer for a band she can’t believe the band is the three most prominent football players in Winchester.

    Can the band geek and the football players get along long enough to win the big band contest?

    Banned is a hot MMMF story that Madison brings to us! So worth the read.

  20. mdgraham2003

    Banned by Madison Faye is another excellent read by this author.
    Book 4 in the Winchester Academy – can be read as a stand alone.
    Excellent characters with amazing chemistry.
    A well written MMFM with a HEA.

    Zara is a typical nerdy band geek who secretly loves to play rock music. When she finally decides to break school rules and tries out for a local rock band, little does she know they other members are Anders, Carson and Griffin. Three of the hottest football player jocks at her high school. No way are they also musicians. After playing together one time, they realize how badly all 4 of them want to win the local Battle of the Bands. Problem is each one of the guys has feelings for Zara and she has feelings for each one of them. After a few really hot moments, they realize that they all have feelings for each other. But will football become too much of a wedge between, especially when the boys all let Zara down when they need it the most. Can the guys make up for their mistake and will they work together to win her heart and Battle of the Bands? I seriously love each one of these books and can’t wait to read more.

    I received this book as an ARC and am giving it my honest review.

  22. Romance lover

    Whew, this book is smokin’! There’s not one but three smoking hawt bad boy lead characters and a nerdy but absolutely gorgeous leading lady. The four of them will make heads turn and bring even more scandals to Winchester Academy. This is the third book in the series and it just keeps getting better. I voluntarily received an ARC copy of this book.

USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling contemporary romance author Madison Faye is the dirty alter ego of the very wholesome, very normal suburban housewife behind the stories. While she might be a wife, mom, and PTA organizer on the outside, there’s nothing but hot, steamy, and raunchy fantasies brewing right beneath the surface!

Tired of keeping them hidden inside or only having them come out in the bedroom, they’re all here in the form of some wickedly hot stories. Single-minded alpha heroes, sinfully taboo relationships, and wildly over-the-top scenarios. If you love it extra dirty, extra hot, and extra naughty, this is the place for you!

(Just don’t tell the other PTA members you saw her here…)

Madison’s books have also been featured on,, and (probably) numerous government and concerned citizens watch-lists.
