I was a rock star in one of the most successful bands in the Miami area. I had money, fame, and millions of female fans - and then my world came crashing down.
I couldn't believe it! I had to go to rehab "for my own safety." Pffft!
Whatever. I'll spend a few weeks doing some BS art projects and waste some time listening to a bunch of idiot addicts whine about how their parents never loved them.
Just my luck, while I was just chillin', waiting for my dealer to find someone else to blame for his stolen stash, I met my hottest dream in the form of a counselor who wouldn't just let me slide.
Just when I thought I couldn't be in a worse situation, one little mistake - a little fun in the art room with this counselor, the hottest girl I've ever laid eyes on - and we were both thrown out.
To make things worse, the girl that I thought was my "hottest dream" became my angel. And I'm not about to let anyone - not even Big J and not even my own stupid messed-up self - ruin the little taste of heaven she gives me.

Again! I totally enjoyed this book. And, I was even more skeptical of this one than the last, or rather second since I listened to them out of order. After listening to the first one though, I knew I wanted to listen to this one. At the very least I would see if I just liked the previous book, or if I'd likely found another author.
Jade Allen took something that I thought sounded far fetched in this one and made it believable. Not only is this not normally my sub genre, but the plot sounded like it might be a little over the top. And, short stories usually don't do it for me. They are usually too short and feel incomplete. But, yet again, I was surprised. And, D.C. Cole? His performance just brings the characters to life. Really great combination here. Can't wait to see what's next.
From the start I was intrigued by the fact that both the hero and heroine are imperfect people who make questionable decisions. I enjoyed their emotional and personal growth over the course of the story. Even though this is book 1 in a series, the author reveals Alex and Mary to be complex personalities.
DC Cole infused just the right amount of heat and grit to bring Alex alive. His female characterization was also well done. This narrator definitely added to the enjoyment of this audiobook.
Nicely crafted sensual romance. This was a strong introduction to a new author and new narrator.

Hello I am addicted to Audible!!! The addiction is real and I need help...more credits that is.....
I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. This book was really good to me. This is my first time listening to thei author and I really enjoyed the writing style. The narration was great and this book is pretty much a stand alone although it is a part of a series, there isn't that cliffhanger that leaves you pissed at the end. Overall I thought the hot scenes were hot and that this book really was a great story!! I am a Fan. now!!
Tell us about yourself!
Good short story. Believe that it could have been lengthened and given more depth without becoming dull. Narrator did really well. Look forward to future books in the series.
I was gifted with a copy of this book free of charge for a true and honest review.
Certainly would, I really enjoyed the whole experience. D.C Cole was fantastic, the book was well written and the audio made it fun to listen.
Nothing comes to mind, it was so well written and performed that I honestly didn't even think about it.
He made the book come to life, the humour and feelings of the book become real.
Many parts made me laugh, I really enjoyed everything about this book and I look forward to the rest of the series.

Yes, I would. Especially if I know they like rock star romances. This one has a refreshing story I haven't seen done before. Plus, it's short and not a huge commitment.
Mary is my favorite character. She's a little contradictory, but I admire her kindness and determination. North and his situation would be a lot to swollow.
The narrator was perfect for this book!
No, not really... Just some angst.
This was the first book I've read by Jade Allen. I was gifted the book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a good book if you like rocker books, and don't mind sex and drugs. Although, there wasn't a lot of music or typical rock star stuff. Which is a good thing! The story was fresh and not something I've read before. I wish the story was longer and had a little bit more "meat" to it. I think that would make it more memorable.
All in all, I did enjoy reading this book. If you're pressed for time, or don't want to commit to a lengthy book, then this one would be a good option.
Alex North is the featured character in this audiobook
Very hot and entertaining book about North, rehabilitation and his HEA with the girl he love'
North is a bad ass rocker that is has a dirty mouth and is tattooed.
I really liked the different take that the author took with dealing with a rocker going into rehab center to hide from his dealer.
Narrator did a good job bringing these characters to life.
This is a short story that can be listened to in one sitting.

After seeing a blurb about this book along with an offer to receive a free Audible audiobook copy in exchange for an honest review, I requested a copy. This was my first book by this author so I had no idea what to expect. I've read many erotic romance stories about rock stars and the various female characters they screw so my hopes weren't very high. The first 99% of the book was fantastic! I was pleasantly surprised by Ms. Allen's storytelling style. Although I can't define what exactly is is about the way she writes, there is something special about it. In an extremely small number of pages, I was able to feel the connection between the two main characters. It's a fast paced story that moves along quickly yet nothing felt rushed. NORTH doesn't have a extraordinarily innovative premise either yet it wasn't totally predictable and was consistently entertaining. I enjoyed the first 99% of this book so much that I was sure I'd be continuing on to read the other books in the series and while listening to most of this book thought i'd be rating it 5 stars. Sadly, things change at the very, very end: Ms. Allen and did this book with a frustrating, disappointing, ultra-abrupt ending. I can appreciate a cliffhanger but that's not what we get. This fast-paced, consistently flowing book just stops all of a sudden! It felt to me like the author just wanted to be done with the book and ended it! Everything was so great until the very last…
Male narrator D.C. Cole gave a phenomenal performance! He perfectly represented the male main character Alex North and spoke well book as the female main character too. The only time I didn't love his performance was when he spoke as a few of North's band members; I thought that the voices he used for some of the other men was a bit over exaggerated and silly. Overall though, Mr. Cole is obviously very talented and is definitely a narrator I look forward to hearing much more of
