Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author comes book one in The Sweet Sin Series.

All five books can be heard standalone.

Meet the men of the rock band, Trained in Black.

"Our someday will come soon, Joslyn." Those words were the last words I heard from Roman Nixon before I walked away.

I knew our someday might come, but not the one he and I had always dreamed about.

His life headed in one direction, mine in the other. While Roman became the lead singer for the successful rock band Trained in Black, I became a ruthless attorney.

He moved on and married someone else. As I was forced to observe him and his bride on the cover of every magazine out there, I deserved to suffer because of what I had done.

What I didn't expect was a phone call that led to me becoming his new attorney.

After years apart, our opposite worlds collide. This time, we may get our someday. But first, we have to find a way to steer us in the right direction.

Loved this book!

Kathy Coopmans is fast becoming one of my favorite listens. This second chance romance is gritty, emotional, a little suspenseful and all around fun. Growing up together in foster care, Joslyn and Roman have that unbreakable bond. When life circumstances kick in, they separate and even though they are apart, their hearts are always together. As life is always throwing curve balls, these two are thrown back together and their second chance is given to them, but with life threats coming at them, it is unsure how things will turn out. Coopmans has woven together just the right amount of suspense into this story, and I loved that no matter what I was concluding, the actual outcome was a surprise! The well developed characters are easy to fall in love with and their connection is hot! Roman is such the over protective male, and while his match is definitely Joslyn, she has incredible spunk. This is a great start to this new series.

Narration by this seasoned team was perfect. Logan McAllister give that growlie rockstar sound to Roman. You can feel his possessiveness as he is telling the story. Voicing Joslyn, Lacy Laurel gives this character such confidence and at the same time, you can feel her vulnerability, a task not easily portrayed in narration. It is a great listen.

Good second chance story!

This was my first Kathy Coopmans's book. This is a second chance love story. The story is fast-paced with a little suspense. Roman is so protective and possessive, we can feel it with the narration of Logan McAllister. Joslyn is sweet, vulnerable and strong at the same time. The interpretation of Lacy Laurel's is perfect for this character. I enjoyed my listening.

Great Listen

Joslyn and Roman were childhood sweethearts that broke up for his career. Now they have a second chance to get it right. Roman has to fight for what he wants and against enemies from the past. This book is full of romance and drama. The narration is great and brings the story to life.

Story Review:
Rocker books are always a "proceed with caution" read for me. The majority seem to have an overload of other women drama due to the famous persona of rockers. I am happy to report you don't have that in this book. Yes, their is an ex-wife drama but the hero is so over her and only refers to her with disgust. Now THAT I can handle.

In fact, I will have to say my favorite part about this book is the fact that Roman has always loved Joslyn and they did not end because of him. When she gets pulled back into his life, he pursues her relentlessly. I can't tell you how happy that made me. I love when a Hero chases the heroine.

This had a great storyline. The ex wife is the drama of the story but like I said it was tolerable due to the feelings of the hero. We got good quality time with the main couple together and a few surprise things happen to keep the story interesting. I look forward to the next one in the book!

2nd chance romance

Kathy gave us great characters. A couple separated by life that is given a second chance at love. I had a little trouble getting into the story for some reason. It was a good story, I just found myself not as immersed as I would have liked. Narration was great. I love Lacy's Male voice better than most others done by female narrators. All in all, it was a good book.

Amazing second chance romance

I absolutely LOVED this one! Complex characters, great story, and plenty of drama kept things interesting, but the lasting love of Roman and Joslyn is what makes this book amazing. Fantastic dual narration. Both of the narrators are fantastic and brought the story to vivid life with so much emotion in their performances.

Enjoyed Listening

The Right Direction was a rockstar second chance novel with a twist. It was a bit angsty with lots of emotions in it. Roman and Joslyn were always made for each other and no amount of time apart could stop that. However I thought the novel had a bit too much inner dialogue and was a bit repetitive at times.
Luckily I listened to the Audible version of this story. I loved Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister's narration of the novel. They brought it to life for me and I enjoyed it so much more. They both complimented each other and were able to give the various ranges needed for the different parts. I enjoyed the audible version of this novel.

Great narration for an excellent angsty read

Audiobook: Narrators – Lacy Laurel and Logan McCallister

This narration was spot on for two characters that were both heartbroken and angst ridden. These narrators excelled at the various ranges required to read both male and female parts. Lacy’s gave Joslyn a feel of vulnerability while Logan’s added a raspy depth to Roman’s giving him a deep sexy timbre.


Roman’s life is a disaster. He’s just gone through a messy divorce when, hounded by the paparazzi, he attacks one of them. Their questions were of the most personal sort. The kind that Roman refuses to ever discuss and the type that attempts to shed a negative light on the one woman he can’t forget.

When Joslyn is called in to represent the man who stole her heart as a teenager, she can’t say no. They have a lot of history together and just as much pain. Now that she’s back in his orbit, Roman is taking advantage of that fact by tying her to him. Unfortunately, the main impetuous to keep her with him is to keep her safe. Someone is setting them up with the out of control paparazzi and the only way they’re going to find their way out of this mess is together.

These characters were always in love with the other but life and bad decisions dealt them a heart breaking and traumatic past. Once reunited, they have to wade through all the pain from their previous lives before they can embrace their happy ever after.

I loved how these two worked together, sometimes impatiently on Roman’s part. It’s a fast paced story with the obvious angst of the broken hearted and plenty of steam. Lots of steam! I loved Roman’s possessive dedication to Joslyn and his determination to keep her. Joslyn was once a young girl, broken, but has grown into a strong independent woman who was more than capable of facing Roman’s strength face on.

I can’t wait for the next!
