It's been 12 years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved. Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed, and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both 14. Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect.

Loved the story...Not crazy about the narrator. I know this is an English story, but the narrator does NOT do male voices very well. They all sound the same and like they are all gangsters, and VERY bored. I'm disappointed.

Mia Sullivan is nobody's fool...apart from that one week five years ago when she gave away her heart to a sexy musician who gave her nothing in return but a few sinfully perfect days - and nights. One of the hottest rock stars in the world, Ford Vincent can have any woman he wants...except Mia Sullivan. But now he knows millions of strangers singing along with his songs can't fill the hole inside of him. Only Mia's love has the power to do that-so he vows to do anything and everything it takes to win her heart again.

I almost feel like I'm reading the same story over and over again. The Sullivan cousins are the same as the 1st family except without the underlying thrills, and plots that gave me a reason to finish a book in 1 night. I love Bella Andre, but I may have to put the Sullivans on the back burner and discover her other books more.
Eva Kaminsky is GREAT.

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

I listened to the first 3 previews...they grabbed me. So I bought the book. Not exactly what I had hoped for but a deep thought provoking novel. The narrator was good. He kept me interested in what he was reading.
Good job Jason.

Not a bad story. Very believeable characters. I'm sure it's happened in Texas before. Easy to get attached. BUT...the narrator's accent is HORRIBLE... I live in Beaumont! We don't sound like that! It was very distracting for me.

Maya, have you heard this? you live in Texas!!!

Not my favorite. Left me wanting more

I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

This was wierd. It dances around homosexuality. It dances around depravity..abuse.
(I'm not saying they are the same thing)
It's almost like she couldn't decide where she was going to take her characters. I was bored. I kept thinking, alright get on with it already.

sorry..I didn't like it
