The cliffhanger ends book 1 in the middle of a conflict . Rylee has been surviving after a big loss. In the story, she meets a gorgeous, self confident man to whom she feels an attraction for the first time in ages. Colton Donavan has issues of his own that prevent him from participating in more than a one night stand or a fling type relationship. During their first encounter, they both feel the chemistry. However, chemistry or not, Rylee keeps getting her emotions shattered by Colton. Why would she do that? If cliffhangers are your thing, the writing is good, the narrator is good, and you will enjoy the series. However, cliffhangers are not for me - even though at the end of book three, I know- well I am almost sure - everything will wrap up into happily ever after.
The story managed to capture my attention span which quite a few books failed to do lately. The focus was the evil disease of cancer.

Then her battle to face it. As a result I found very very few things to like about her. Yes. I understand her situation, but the lies on top of lies in an effort to separate herself from others and in particular from Beck got to me. I got the impression all she cared about was escape into sex and it did not matter with whom either) . To me, Beck was too good for her. She came off as a selfish bitch. I did not feel the love between them. It was just sexual chemistry.

Underneath Hawkin's drool worthy, sexy, tattooed and confident Lead Singer persona he was emotionally scarred by his past (sorry no spoilers) which made him incapable on loving or feeling too deeply for women. He was a fantastic loyal friend to his fellow Band members, was always covering up for his twin brother Hunter's screw-ups and was a tortured son because of the past. You couldn't help but like him because of all that he was dealing with and what he had emotionally gone through but when he saw Quinlan sparks flew igniting a passionate affair. Nevertheless however sexy, feisty, understanding and altogether compatible with him in every way Quinlan was Hawkin couldn't and wouldn't allow himself to feel more but, as much as he fought it, her support, compassion, friendship and growing feelings drew him in and he finally found himself opening up and believing in the impossible. But he made a crazy stupid sexual bet with one of his Band mates about a threesome involving Quinlan and you knew that this bet was going to come back to bite him in the ass when Quinlan found out and it was just going to be a question of when and where the shit was eventually going to hit the fan.
Worth a credit? It was a really emotional and touching story, it had plenty of drama and angst, was very romantic, annoying, frustrating, had some great sizzling sex scenes and some heartbreaking ones too. Dual POV's. I loved loved loved every well written Chapter.... so creditworthy? well that would be a HELL YEAH.
Reporter and self-professed nomad, Tanner returns to the war torn Middle East after a couple of months off grieving, lost and trying to come to terms ..Show More »with the death of his sidekick and best friend the female Photographer who's been by his side for years and was once his lover too. He's plagued with guilt and memories of their times together, he's mentally not in a good place and is held up in a Hotel with fellow Reporters waiting for any action to start, the buzz to kick in and the adrenaline rush that'll follow. He also has to meet his new Photographer which is eating him up but, on his first night back, he has sex with a beautiful sexy woman called Beaux (aka BJ) - it's wild, it's a crazy one time high octane deal as their meeting was fuelled by anger and lust. He was due to meet the Photographer the next day..... but little did he know that he'd just met her..... and knew her intimately.
So starts a lot of angst as his suspicions, his anger, his resentment, his denial and his negativity grows towards a woman who makes his blood boil and his temper flare because she's feisty, gives as good as she gets, is very secretive and he doesn't trust her. But she's also very sexy, beautiful and talented too not to mention the incredible combustible sexual chemistry between them that's pulling him in and it's making him want much more. However, when their verbal bickering and push/pull relationship is interlaced with heated demanding kisses, things change and, for a short and passion filled time, Tanner knows peace..... but he still doesn't know anything about the mysterious Beaux.
Then comes the tense drama when they accompany a Military Mission into a bombed Village and that's when everything changes, someone's life is held in the balance, a shocking discovery is made and Tanner's forced to walk away from the woman he loves. Unfortunately there's a lot more shocking twists and revelations to come as well as tear-jerking heartbreak and lies as all the pieces are finally uncovered and slot together to reveal the real Beaux.
Worth a credit? A very enjoyable, fast paced and emotionally charged listen that had angst, drama, danger, blood, tears, passion, steam, secrets, shocking revelations, suspense, heartache and a love story that was anything but conventional. Told from Tanner's POV and the storyline of two people who clashed, fought, f'cked, bled, shocked, cried, lost and loved each other was all well narrated. K. Bromberg put a lot into this addictive listen that was, I'm happy to say, very creditworthy.
