I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
First, I read this book on my kindle app and I decided to try it in audio. Either way, the story held my attention and I really enjoyed this 1st book in the series. This book begins with Evelyn going out for her 21st birthday, she wants to get a little wild, have a little fun. So she goes to Vegas with her best friend. The last thing she remembers is taking shots after midnight... the next morning she wakes up with a ring on her finger and a tattoo on her ass. And she can't remember a damn thing. Evelyn has her life mapped out. Getting married to a rockstar she just met on her 21st birthday is not part of that plan. David isn't happy that Evelyn doesn't remember anything. He married her for a reason, he fell for her right away, and now he doesn't know what to do about it. It’s a pretty messed up situation. Once the media catches wind of this its even more crazy. Eve and David go away for a bit to get away from the crowds and decide what to do. To divorce or not to divorce... that is the question. While at David’s home away, the couple starts to get to know one another. Evelyn realizes that she really likes David. She may even be falling for him. She is afraid to tell him her feelings. David still feels hurt and betrayed that Evelyn remembers nothing of their night together. One thing is pretty obvious... they both want each other.
Once they go back to LA, everything changes. There are a lot of issues, miscommunications etc. Things get screwed up. It’s a little heart breaking. David & Eve spend some time apart.
Just a touch of drama and angst, but not overkill. A wonderful rockstar book that will keep a smile on your face!
This is the FIRST book in the Assassins series. For most of the book there was really no conflict, just a budding romance between two very different people. It was simply a love story between a successful woman, Elli, who is loaded with insecurities, and a professional athlete, Shea, who is so amazing. Shea is the captain of the Assassins hockey team in Nashville. The heroine Ellie is sweet, funny, smart, and a incredibly successful photographer. She is also a young southern lady who has insecurity issues. Elli Fisher has been hurt, emotionally and physically, by former loves and her family. After overcoming a medical issues, she stood on her own for so long that she doesn't quite know how to trust others. Shea meets Elli at a team photo shoot where she is the photographer. He gets her to do the photography at party of his and things start to progress from there. This book has it all. Laughter, sexy time, drama, heartache and love. Shea the sexy, sensitive, tattooed hockey player for the Assassins wears geek glasses is muscled, funny, sweet, jealous, possessive and becomes totally in love &devoted to Elli. And Shea’s absolutely adorable with his twin sister, Grace, and her family. I thought Shea and Elli were so sweet together. However, Elli's excessive doubts throughout the chapters were the only qualms I had with the book, everything else was good. I did appreciate the slow building romance. These two characters did not just meet, had insta-love and lived happily ever after. Oh no, you got to see a build of a fantastic and realistic love. All in all, the book was entertaining and if you enjoy hot hockey players, I recommend it.
This book was a bit predictable but it was still delicious! I was hesitant when I heard about a love triangle. Olivia is a country girl whose in her senior year of college, working as a bartender, never willing to abandon her father like her mom did, currently renting/ living with her spoiled bitchy cousin. Olivia has sworn to stay away from the bad boy type because of failed past relationships. Of course, she finds herself drawn to her cousin's sexy perfect smart boyfriend named Nash & his ultimate sexy bad boy twin named Cash. She wants Cash but knows that Nash is who she should be with. Unfortunately, Nash is taken. This book has a definite twist and ends with a much hated cliffhanger! Overall it was still worthy of a credit. Glad to see the second book will be released by Audible soon.
