About INKED EXPRESSIONS

The Montgomery Ink Series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the brother who keeps his secret and the one woman he shouldn’t want.

Everly Law married the love of her life and on the eve of giving birth to their twins, lost him in a tragic accident. Now she’s a single mother working overtime at her bookstore trying to make sure her boys have the life they deserve. Her life is busy enough without her adding dating a Montgomery. As past secrets come to light, she’ll need Storm more than ever—even if she doesn’t realize it.

Storm Montgomery has spent his life atoning for sins that only few know he’s committed. When he lost his best friend, he promised his widow that he’d always be there for her—even when she wanted nothing to do with him. But when a single touch ignites passions they’ve both buried deep inside, he’ll have to remember exactly who is in his arms and that taking chances might be far more dangerous than they bargained for.

Read the First Chapter of INKED EXPRESSIONS

Then 

The babies kicked, sending a shockwave through Everly Law’s bladder. She winced, rubbed the large swell of her stomach, and tried to remember the last time she’d seen her feet. 

 “Storm?” she called out, now running a hand down her back since that ached, as well. Being eight months pregnant with twins wasn’t an easy task. “Yeah?” her husband’s best friend called out from the back of the house. “You need me?” 

  That man, she thought with a smile. He always put everyone else first no matter what. Here he was on his evening off, hanging out at her house making sure things were ready for the new babies and finishing up the back deck that Jackson had never gotten around to. She honestly didn’t know why the man was single. Some woman should have snatched him up years ago. 

 “I just need you to tell me if my shoes match,” she yelled back. 

 He chuckled as he made his way into the living room where she stood, sorting through the mail. “Your shoes match, Ev. I would have told you if they didn’t.” 

 She rolled her eyes. “You say that, but I still remember the time you let Jackson walk around campus with toilet paper tucked into the back of his pants.” 

 While she was a few years younger than both Jackson and Storm, she’d been an undergraduate at the University of Denver while both men were in graduate school finishing up their degrees— Storm his Master’s in Architecture, Jackson his Ph.D. in Anthropology. From the moment she’d begun dating Jackson over a decade ago, Storm had been a part of their lives. The men had been childhood friends, and as such, she’d formed a friendship with Storm also, though it was nothing like what the two men shared. 

 Storm ran a hand over her belly— the only person other than Jackson she’d ever allow to do that— and smiled. “Jackson deserved that. He pissed me off that morning.” He shrugged, his dark hair falling over his forehead. The man needed a haircut, but he seemed to like it longer on the top than the sides anyway. “I don’t even remember what he did, but I remember that not telling him about what he missed was decent revenge. I’d never do something like that to you.” He winked, those blue eyes of his sparkling. “Not because I’m a nice guy, but because I’m pretty sure you could take me.” 

She waved her fist at him, her fingers so swollen she couldn’t even wear her wedding ring. “And don’t you forget it, Storm Montgomery.” 

 He let out a breath and rubbed her belly again. The babies rolled, enjoying Uncle Storm’s touch, apparently, since they weren’t kicking her bladder again at the moment. “Your shoes match, and you even have pants on, but how about you relieve my stress and sit down on the couch while you look at the mail. You’re like days from your due date and starting to freak me out.” 

 She let him lead her to the couch since he’d just annoy her if she didn’t— though her ankles had swollen up like her hands, so maybe he wasn’t all that wrong about her needing to sit down. 

 “I’m a couple of weeks away, Storm, not days,” she countered once he’d settled her on the couch with a couple of throw pillows at her sides. 

 “You’re having twins, and they don’t usually like to take their time. Believe me, I know. I am a twin.” He winked again, and she snorted. 

 “Your poor mother,” Everly teased. “Not only twins with you and Wes, but eight children altogether. I have no idea how she did it.” She rubbed her belly, that familiar tension sliding through her. “I don’t know how I’m going to do it.” 

 Storm frowned and sat down on the table in front of her. “You’re going to be a great mom, Ev. You already take care of Jackson and me. What’s one more set of boys?” 

 She laughed, despite the worry in her veins. Something was off tonight, she could feel it, but she hoped it was just nerves from the upcoming labor and delivery— and then the whole raising twin boys thing. 

 “You handle yourself just fine, and Jackson’s not that bad.” She rolled her eyes as she said it, and Storm grinned. “I’m serious,” she said with a laugh as Storm shook his head. “Jackson is always in his head, thinking and working, but he’s not immature or anything. I just like to make sure he’s taken care of because he sometimes forgets daily things.” 

 Storm narrowed his eyes. “And who is taking care of you?” 

  You are. 

 She blinked at that thought and firmly put it away. “Jackson takes care of me, as well. And now we’ll both take care of these babies.” 

 Storm nodded. “And I take it he won’t be going on as many trips as he has been lately? I mean, this is like the fifth or sixth conference he’s flown to since you found out about the twins. I hope he’s just getting it all out of his system before he comes home and stays here for a bit.” 

 There was an edge to his tone that Everly couldn’t place, but she was far too tired to deal with it. The babies had kept her up all night, and she frankly hated having half of the bed empty without Jackson there to warm it. 

 “He said it won’t be as bad when the babies come.” Though Jackson hadn’t sounded all that happy at the time about not being able to do as many guest lectures and conferences, and that did tend to worry her a little. Everly loved the fact that he was so passionate about his work, but she was also happy that he was going to stay at home for longer periods of time to help with their babies. While she knew she was strong and capable, raising twins on her own was not something she desired to do. 

 “I hope so,” Storm grumbled. “A man needs to take care of his family.” 

 Everly sighed. “And a woman needs to do the same. We’re fine, Storm, stop fretting. It’s going to turn that beautiful mane gray one of these days.” 

 His cheeks reddened, and he let out a curse. “You’re just mean, Ev. Plain mean.” 

 “I’ve had to be if I wanted to keep up with you and Jackson.” She frowned and looked down at her watch. “Speaking of Jackson, he was supposed to have landed already and he hasn’t texted. I hope his flight isn’t delayed.” 

 Storm stood up and rubbed his back. “He probably just forgot. You know Jackson.” 

 She did, sadly, so him not texting or calling wasn’t all that surprising. He just got so in his head with his work, he forgot those around him some days. Another thing she hoped would change with the arrival of the twins. He seemed so excited about them, so she figured they would at least keep him out of his head for longer periods of time than he was now. 

“Thanks for taking care of me, Storm,” Everly said after a moment. “And taking care of the back deck tonight, though I know you’re not really in the mood.” 

 He shrugged. “It needed to be fixed since that bottom step rotted out. Jackson’s not exactly handy, and I do happen to own half a construction business. It’s sort of my thing.” He rubbed his back again, and Everly frowned. 

 “What’s wrong? Did you hurt yourself?” She tried to lever herself up, but he held up a hand. 

 “I’m fine, Ev. Don’t get up and jostle the babies. I’m just a little sore, is all. Nothing a few stretches won’t fix.” 

 “Are you sure you should be working on the deck tonight, then?” she asked, worried. “You’re the architect of Montgomery Inc., not the contractor, so I don’t know how much pressure you usually put on your back if you’re this sore. I don’t want you hurting yourself.” 

 He fisted his hands for a moment before stuffing them into his pockets. “I’m fine, Ev. Stop fretting. Just sit there and relax and before you know it, Jackson will be home, and your deck will be ready for you to actually stand on.” 

 She huffed a breath. “If that’s some kind of fat joke, I’ll hoist myself off this couch and kick your ass right now. Don’t think I won’t.” 

 He pulled his hands out of his pockets and held them up in mock surrender. “Dear God, woman. I would never make a fat joke about a lady, let alone a pregnant one. I have three sisters and a mother who can kick my ass just like you can. I know better.” 

 She smiled sweetly. “I’m glad they taught you a few things.” 

 He muttered under his breath as he walked away, and Everly grinned, feeling a little better than she had before, though she wasn’t about to tell him that her sitting down had helped. There was only so much ego stroking she could handle. 

 The doorbell rang a few minutes later, and she frowned. She wasn’t sure who it could be, but Jackson’s parents did live a few miles away and liked to show up unannounced. Just thinking about that set her teeth on edge, so she ignored it and somehow levered herself off the couch. She wasn’t sure Storm could hear the doorbell from outside, and since it was her house, after all, she might as well answer it. 

 Everly waddled over and opened the door, blinking hard at the sight in front of her. The two officers gave her a sad smile, their chests broad as they took deep breaths. Her hands shook as she gripped the doorknob with one, the frame with the other. “Can I help you?” 

 “Mrs. Law?” the older of the two officers said softly. “May we come in?” Everly’s throat went dry, and she tried to keep the sense of foreboding from rushing into her, but she couldn’t quite manage it— or think. 

 “What’s going on, officers?” Storm asked from behind her. He put his hand on her shoulder, steadying her. Everly’s knees went weak, and she leaned into him, knowing she couldn’t stand on her own. 

 Both men looked up at Storm, frowns on their faces. “We need to speak to Mrs. Law. May we come in?” 

 “That way, she’s not on her feet,” the younger one added softly, and Everly’s heart raced. 

 She moved back, pushing Storm out of the way softly. “Come in,” she whispered, her voice hollow. 

The two officers could have been there for any number of reasons, and yet Everly knew. She knew that no matter what happened next, her life would forever be altered. 

 As soon as they sat down, the officers spoke, and Storm gripped Everly’s hands, but she couldn’t hear anyone clearly. It was as if she were in a vacuum and everything was taking longer to reach her ears than normal. 

 Her husband was dead. 

 Gone before she could take her next breath. 

 The commuter plane that Jackson had been on had crashed outside of Boston. There were no survivors. No hope of finding her husband alive and whole, or even his body to put to rest. 

 The babies kicked at her bladder again, and she pressed her hand against her stomach, numb yet knowing she had no right to be that way. She couldn’t sit here and listen to them talk of grief councilors and who would be in touch with her shortly. Storm spoke for her, and she couldn’t care. She’d deal with everything later. 

 Right now, she needed to protect her children. 

 Jackson’s babies. 

 Babies he’d never see. Never hold. Never know. 

 She stood up then, only just aware that she’d interrupted whatever the men in the room had been saying. “I have to pee,” she blurted. The officers gave her an odd look, but Storm kept his grip on her hand. 

“Everly.” His voice was deep, soothing, and a little bit worried. Yet she couldn’t focus on that. 

 “I need to take care of the babies,” she rasped. “I’ll… I’ll be right back. Can you…” She swallowed hard. “Can you take care of… just take care of it?” 

 He nodded before letting her hand go, and she waddled away from the living room, not looking at the officers who sat on her soft loveseat. Storm would take care of them and tell her what she needed to do. She couldn’t focus on anything else just then, only her babies. 

 They were the most important things. 

 Tears slid down her cheeks as she locked herself in the hall powder room, her legs shaking. The numbness settled in once more, and she looked at herself in the mirror, wondering who stared back at her, because that wasn’t the Everly she knew. 

  Jackson is gone, she reminded herself. 

 Gone. 

 And when the pinch inside her echoed throughout her body and liquid pooled around her feet, she once again knew nothing would ever be the same. 

 The babies were coming, but Jackson wasn’t. 

 He never would be. 

 And Everly wept.
   

  Now 

“I need you to breathe in, baby,” Everly said softly as she held Nathan to her chest. Her three-year-old wheezed into the nebulizer, and she tried not to let herself go numb again. She refused to allow that sensation to take hold as it had once before. She didn’t have time to ignore the panic running through her veins, but she could take that panic and turn it into the focus she needed. 

 Nathan looked up at her, his big eyes full of fear, an emotion that made her want to cry right along with him. James, her other sweet baby boy, held onto her shirt from where he stood beside the bed, tears running down his face. 

  We’ve all been here before, she thought, though tonight seemed like a far worse asthma attack than usual. She held back a curse and bundled Nathan in a blanket in her arms. 

 “Okay, Nathan honey, we’re going to go to the doctor just to make sure you’re okay.” She kissed his little face, a thousand things going through her mind as to what needed to be done. 

 “Uncle Storm,” James said from her side. “I want Uncle Storm.” 

 Everly looked down at James before looking at Nathan, who nodded beneath the mask. She honestly didn’t want to call Storm because that’s all she’d been doing for the past three years, at least until a month ago, but tonight wasn’t about her. It was about her boys and the fact that, frankly, she needed help. 

 “I’ll call from the car, now come on, babies. Let’s go.” She bundled them up quickly and got them into the car within five minutes. The fact that she’d gotten into such a routine because of her two boys’ health issues made her heart hurt, but she ignored it. The twins came first. 

 Always. 

 And that meant if she had to call Storm for help once again, she would. 

 Even if it pained her to do so.

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. 

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. 

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done. 

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant. 

Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy.

Oops. My mistake. 

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology. 

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right? 

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning. 

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant. 

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking. 

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

Review: 5 STARS!!

This is the first Donna Grant book that I have read and I absolutely LOVED it!! I know it is the 11th book in the Dragon Kings series, and I do highly advise reading the books in order, but let me tell you, I was intrigued by the very first page and just ruined for any other dragon shifter romance books out there by the ending of Blaze.

Devon was like a curious lioness. I say lioness, because she was fierce and strong, even when she was lost. I also say curious, because she couldn't just leave things alone, no, she had to dig and dig and get all of the information, but that also made her smart. She was a very hard worker and proud of the job she was doing, until she met Anson and he turned not only her personal life upside down, but her work life too. I loved Devon's attitude about everything; her freaks out were very justified, but I loved how she would still fight back if she needed too. She was protective of Anson and when they started getting intimate, oh ya, she was a fierce and loyal woman.

Anson was a hard@$$, broody Dragon King who doesn't like humans, well humans who aren't mated to the other Kings, but when he meets Devon, all that hatred is bled away from him. Anson is strong, loyal, protective, possessive (when he meets Devon) & sexy. I loved how Anson, even when he didn't know his own feelings towards Devon, protected her and helped her. He never took advantage of her and he made sure that she was comfortable with everything at all times. I also loved Anson's love of being a dragon. Now, it was very sad at how he became to be a Dragon King, but he is a great one.

The connection that Anson & Devon share is unbreakable and strong. Their passion for each other is scorching and I was definitely fanning myself a few times throughout the book. I loved all of the secondary characters, even some of the bad ones!! Rhi...oh boy, do I need to know who her Dragon King is and seriously, they just NEED TO BE TOGETHER!!! I am so excited to go back and read books 1-10 and I cannot wait for the next Dragon King book to come out...I wonder whose story it will be...!!!!

Title: The Clover Chapel


Author: Devney Perry


Genre: Contemporary Romance


About The Clover Chapel:


She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.     

 After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.   

 Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“What are you doing here?”
“Picking you up for dinner,” he said.
“It’s only three thirty. I prefer to put at least six hours between meals and I ate lunch at noon.”
“I’m not here to take you now, Emmy. But I’m giving you a heads-up that I’ll be back at five thirty. Don’t drive home.”
“You could have texted me all of this,” I said.
“Yeah. But then I wouldn’t have been able to do this.”
He crossed the space between us in a millisecond and captured my mouth, wrapping his arms around my waist. His lips pressed roughly against mine as his tongue swept my lower lip. Over and over he stroked until my mouth fell open. When his tongue found mine, I melted. Heat erupted throughout my body and my knees gave out.
When I started to sink to the floor, he stopped kissing me but tightened his grip on my waist.
“I’ve got you.” A crooked grin formed on his lips.
I took a moment to steady my legs and stand tall before stepping back a foot. The skin around my mouth was surely pink from the contact with his beard. But at least it would match my flushed cheeks.
“Five thirty,” he said and walked out the door.
Shit.
Thinking clearly was not an option after a Nick kiss but I really needed to pull myself together. I’d spent last night tossing and turning, replaying all the things Nick had told me these last few months.
You’ve always had my heart, Emmy.
We’re it for each other.
I thought about you every day for nine years.
And I thought about what my mother had said. That my heart had already forgiven him and I just needed to get my head straight with that concept.
Sinking into my chair, I let my head fall into my hands. “What am I going to do?”
I tried to picture what our life could be like. Me happy. Nick and I living a normal life. But every time that image popped in my head, it was immediately followed by the vision of me waking up alone to a note that said he was sorry.
Time was ticking away and I needed to make some decisions. My attorney had emailed me while I was in Italy to say he’d have my divorce papers drafted by the end of the month. Nick was not going to stop inserting himself into my life unless I made it clear we were over.
Were we over?
For nine years, I’d thought we were. But so much was different now. He was everything that I remembered. Kind. Affectionate. Intelligent.
And stubborn. Every time I tried to push him away, he just pushed back harder. But honestly, I really hadn’t put up much of a fight against his advances.
“Ten seconds ago, you let him stick his tongue down your throat with no fight at all, Emmeline,” I mumbled into my hands.

Blurb:
I’m not supposed to be here.

Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s
stood between me and my final breath.

I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my
life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time
before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as
if I didn’t need any more saving.

This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I
know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.

Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together
somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I
shouldn’t.

The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.

I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together,
we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.

And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.






Review: 5 STARS!!

I have been anxiously waiting for this book since I finished A Boy Like You and I couldn't have loved this book any more than I already do!! A Girl Like Me left off right where A Boy Like You ended and the journey that Wes & Joss go on throughout this book, I felt like I was right there with them. Just a warning, this review will be very vague as to not give spoilers away, because everyone needs to experience this book, not just read it.

Joss is one of the strongest characters I have read, and especially with her being so young. She is courageous, determined, driven and just wants to be loved, especially by Wes. I felt more connected to Joss in this book than I did with Wes, not saying that I didn't love Wes just as much as I loved Joss, but yeah.

Joss never gave up on Wes and knew that he was out there somewhere; she just had to find him and bring him home to where he belongs; with her. I think Joss being only 17, she really had an old soul and she has overcome so much grief and hardships, that no one should go through. It really shaped her into a strong willed and big hearted woman.

I loved the sense of mystery and intrigue surrounding Wes's character. His story alone had me giddy and rooting for him & Joss. Trust me when I say, Ginger Scott really threw me for a loop, but it was awesome!!

This book is filled with heartache, friendship, love & family. Wes & Joss are each other's family and their love, even though they are young, is true and beautiful. Ginger Scott really did a fantastic job with this duet series and I cannot wait to see what she comes out with next!!

When it’s time to turn in his weapons, he never forgets the skills he learned. Never forgets the smell of death or feel of a rifle in his hands. The same hands that one day cradle his baby girl and caress the skin of his beautiful wife.

If anything or anyone ever tried to steal away the family he has vowed to love and protect, may God have mercy on their soul.




Review: 5 STARS!!

What a very emotionally packed novella by K.C. Lynn!!

Jax & Julia is THE couple that started this amazing Men of Honor series and this novella just had me falling in love with them all over again.

Jax has changed from his book and throughout the series, but in this novella, we really get to see it. He is an amazing dad and an amazing husband, but he is still that BAD@$$ SEAL that will protect and fight for those that he loves. Julia is still the sweet woman that we have known and I loved seeing that she worked at the elementary school and that her and the other Men of Honor families had a little system going on about carpooling. It was all very simplistic and lovely.

When lives start to get threatened, F-bombs start flying and the men start suiting up, not letting anything stand in their way. Julia was so brave and I respected her so much more as a character. Jax really goes through the emotional ringer and I was crying right along with everyone else. Seeing the POVs from all the different families at the end was heartbreaking and emotional but very necessary. 

K.C. Lynn is one of my favorite authors and this is one of my all-time favorite series!! This novella really did pack a punch and it made me want to just go and hug my girls tight and never let go. I really respect what K.C. Lynn has done with this series and I cannot wait for more books from her!!

CockLoft



Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.



Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.

CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she'd be hightailing it back to her side of town.

When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming.

Review for Rocked Up by Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie


Title: Rocked Up
Author: Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie
Publisher: Metal Blonde Books
Published: May 17, 2017

Synopsis

A USA TODAY BESTSELLER! Rocked Up is a STANDALONE rockstar romance and the sexy, fun brainchild of the husband and wife writing duo, Scott Mackenzie and New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle.

I've been watching him since I was a teenager.
He didn't notice me back then and it didn't matter. Brad Snyder, guitarist and singer for one of the world's greatest bands, was my entire life.
My father, the CEO of Ramsey Records, takes credit for all of Brad's success, trying to control him in the same way he's controlled me.
But I finally get an opportunity to prove myself.
To be wild.
To be free.
Today I'm auditioning to be the replacement bass player for Brad's band. If I get the job, I'll go on tour and work with Brad every day, in very close proximity.
There's only one rule: he's not allowed to touch the boss's daughter.
Remember when I said that Brad never used to notice little ol' me?
Well, Brad's noticing me now.
In a way that's going to get us both in trouble.
My name is Lael Ramsey and we all know how this will turn out.

Review: 5 STARS!!

Another amazing book by Karina Halle and knowing that her husband, Scott Mackenzie wrote it with her, AMAZING!! Rocked Up is filled with humor, passion, music and heart.

Lael is the type of female lead character that I enjoy reading. She is feisty, strong willed, her own person, not afraid to take risks, loves music and is generally an all around good and kind person. She doesn't leech off of her dad or use her last name to get ahead. She works hard and isn't afraid to prove people wrong about that. I loved that she respects music and how passionate she is about making her own sound.

Brad is a broody @$$hole who has been in the music industry a long time, but somewhere along the way, lost himself and the reasons why he loved music in the first place. Brad just wants to make his own music; you can take away all the lights, cameras and fame and Brad will still just want to make his own music. I think it really hits home to him, how lost he got when he receives devastating news about his friend/mentor's death. Lael helps him find his way again and I loved that Brad wasn't scared to show his emotions to Lael and he wasn't scared that she was his boss's daughter. He made her prove herself and saw how hard she worked. He respected her and their passion for music led to other, more intimate passions.

Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie really took a normal rockstar romance and made it into a funny & heartfelt book about two people searching for where they belong and finding out who they truly are. The passion and friendship between Brad and Lael was strong and beautiful to read about. I think Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie need to co-write some more books together, because I truly enjoyed this book!!
