He’d lost her to another man because he hadn’t admitted to his feelings. And he’d almost destroyed his band because of his broken heart. But when Luke Thompson, The Fury’s lead singer, learns that Audrey Pierce is once again single, he’s determined to do all he can to win her back.
Audrey walked away from Luke because she didn’t believe he’d stick around. She may make her living dressing rock stars, but she knows firsthand that living with one doesn’t work, especially one so devoted to his fans. She’s tried moving on, but can’t get Luke out of her mind. When he swoops back into her life, old feelings return, sharper and sweeter than ever, but she’s still afraid to trust him.
Through love songs, sexy kisses, and solid determination, Luke convinces Audrey to give him a chance. When his beloved fans turn on her, Audrey expects some of the hate mail. After all, she’s dating the man voted sexiest rocker of the year. But the attacks escalate, and soon, even Luke’s support isn’t enough to make her feel safe. The only choice is to let him go.
Luke must make the ultimate choice—the love of his life, or the people who support his career. If Audrey walks away, Luke knows he’ll lose her for good. Can he convince her that their love is strong enough to survive anything, or will both his love and career end on a sour note?
A rock star, a second chance romance (of sorts), and a bit of suspense make this a great read! Add in great writing and characters that were easy to relate to and this book had me finishing it in one sitting.
Luke and Audrey were both great characters. They have a bit of a past, but it was more of one of missed opportunity. When Luke learns that Audrey is once again single I loved how he didn’t think twice about going to her to try and get her to agree to give them a chance. And even though Audrey has her reasons for not wanting to be involved with a rock star again, this is truly a case of “the heart wants what the heart wants.” Even though there are some challenges they both face trying to start a relationship, I love how the author was able to deliver and emotional story that was not overly angsty. These characters were faced with some real life issues and it was easy to believe that most of the events could happen in real life – especially the bullying that Audrey encountered on social media and then in real life once “the public” learns that she is Luke’s girlfriend. And I really enjoyed the bit of suspense that was thrown in, which added a nice twist to the story.
The author has a wonderful writing style that is easy to fall into and, even though this is book two in the series, gives enough background on both Luke and Audrey to allow you to understand the history surrounding the various relationships between the two of them and also with Luke and his band.
This is a great read that I would recommend to any lover of romance!
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
