Review – Unveil Me by Alex Grayson 

5 out of 5 stars

 Alex has delivered another amazing book in this series. The first two books were incredible and,  I could not wait for Andrew to get his story. I fell in love with him instantly upon meeting him in this series. He is kind, caring  and hilarious. How can you not love him? 
He is hiding a secret from his friends. I don’t want to give the secret away so I won’t go into detail about that, but when he finally meets Jase, he realizes Jase is keeping secrets of his own too. They could be detrimental to a whole lot of people. 
These two are smoking hot together and are adorably cute together. They have obstacles to overcome if they want their HEA. This is a definite must read even if you’re not a mm fan. 

 Andrew Donovan is the outrageous goofy guy that everyone loves. In any setting he’s in, he takes front stage and makes everyone laugh; from his ridiculously funny t-shirts, to his naughty jokes, to his shameless flirting with anything that walks, both men and women. But what you see on the outside can sometimes be deceiving. Andrew has a secret. A secret that’s slowly withering away the fun loving guy that everyone knows. A secret that even his closest friends know nothing about.

When he first sees Jase in a picture, he knows instantly that he’s found the one person who will be his forever. He’s just impatiently biding his time for him to get to Jaded Hollow. Andrew is torn. On one hand, he’s finally found the other half of his soul, while on the other hand, he’s slowly dying inside. Tragedy is on the horizon and there’s nothing he can do to stop it.

Jase Matthews comes to Jaded Hollow a dead man walking. He knows it’s only a matter of time before they find him. There is no way they’ll let him live. At his first sight of Andrew, he’s instantly drawn to him, but he refuses the connection, knowing his days are numbered. However, it’s not long before he realizes the pull Andrew has on him is something he can’t fight.

Can Andrew find the courage to reveal to his loved ones the secret he’s kept for years? Will Jase be the man to help him overcome the grief he feels inside? And what happens when Jase’s past catches up to him and threatens to take away the man Andrew’s waited forever to meet?

 A love that feels fated meets a fate determined to keep two souls apart.

Review – The V Card by Lauren Blakely & Lili Valente

The V Card by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love each of Lauren Blakely and Lili Valentes’ hot, humorous, and heartfelt stories but when paired together, this Double L DYNAMIC DUO is UNSTOPPABLE!!! Seriously!!!! Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente are a ROM-COM DREAM TEAM! Their words are just so ENTICING. This author duo’s writing fused together is FLAWLESS in their co-authored hit, The V Card.The V Card is a FUN, FIRE-HOT, and HEART-FLUTTERING ADDICTION!!!

Let’s start with the HOT and BIG-HEARTED HERO, Graham. A company owner by day and city playboy by night, Graham is not a one flavor type of guy. MR. MAN CANDY samples the goods. However, Graham is a GIVER. This hero is the type of man who OWNS A WOMAN’S PLEASURE and oh did he own mine. This man made me MELT all over, and I pledged my love to Graham way back on page one!

CJ is Graham’s friend and little sister of his best friend, a beautiful and successful business woman. I ADORED this sweet and sassy beauty! CJ is done carrying her v card, which is so old that it is covered in dust. What better man to bestow her with his sexpertise and be her cherry popper than her gorgeous guy friend, Graham?

The V Card is FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE!!! I love how the friendship flames into more. I adore how gentle Graham is with CJ. This hero is tender and touching while still so deliciously dirty—a HEADY COMBINATION. Graham and CJ are MAGICAL together! This hero and heroine are MEANT TO BE.

The V Card is the PERFECT ROM-COM!


The V Card CAPTIVATED and caught me with its witty dialogue and I found myself laughing out loud A LOT.

Note to self: if you ever change careers, consider being a sex tutor. It streamlines the focus and keeps your dick in the game.


The V Card SMOLDERS all over!!! It’s the HOTTEST brother’s best friend or best friend/ little sister romance I’ve ever met!!! This hero and heroines’ CHEMISTRY paired with Graham’s deliciously dirty mouth is so HOT!!!

“I need to make you come on my mouth … I need it like I need air.”


The V Card is as SWOONY as it is SMOLDERING. I MELTED from head to toe.

”Tell me anything.”

“I’m so glad it’s you.”

I LOVE a well-written friends-to-lovers story, and The V Card delivers the goods. Laugh-out-loud lines, smokin’ hot yet huge-hearted alpha, sweet and sassy heroine, and plot that is pure addiction make The V Card the IDEAL ROM-COM!!! This friends-to-lovers tale is full of FIRE and FEELS. You’ll fall in fast LOVE. I was ENRAPTURED with this love story! The V Card is the ULTIMATE FEEL-GOOD ROMANCE.

I know he feels it too.

💋💋💋💋💋 sweet and sexy forever kisses


When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it’d be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.

You’d be wrong. At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I’m still a card-carrying member of a club I don’t want to belong to anymore.

Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering job—my brother’s business partner and best friend.

Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, I’m told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, there’s no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.


Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I’ve been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend’s little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there’s another big stake she wants.

The one between my legs.

I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There’s no way I’ll fall for her, even though she’s earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out I’m learning something too. The trouble is I don’t have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.

And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.

Review – Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart

Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart

Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart is easily in my TOP 3 fave books Emma has ever written! I absolutely LOVED IT! Dex has my heart right now! He was pure male perfection! Gah!

Emma writes the best rom-coms. And just lately she’s included the gender-flip that is just sheer brilliance. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve come to love this trope and Emma nails it every time. Miss Mechanic was so funny, so sassy and so sexy. I’m 100% addicted to it and now experiencing the BIGGEST rush! 

Dex and Jamie are EXPLOSIVE. A raging inferno of tension and fire and insane connection. From the start these two burn hotter than a burning flame and it only increases as the book goes on. I got major tingles and butterflies from some of their encounters! I just loved them so much.

Dex is an a**hole but he’s a totally loveable a**hole. He’s filthy and sexy. You can’t help but fall for him just as much as you want to slap him. As always Emma’s heroine, Jamie, is incredible. She’s one of my fave heroines Emma has written! 

Everything about Miss Mechanic worked so well. The trope, the gender flip, the intensity and heat and the humour all complimented each other and equalled one hell of a story!

Two mechanics. One rivalry.

She’ll prove she’s as good as she says she is.
He’ll prove her place isn’t under the hood.
It’s over it.

“Don’t let the bastards get you down.”
For twenty-six years, I lived by my daddy’s motto. Which is why “Mechanic Wanted” is all it takes for me to apply for the job at the garage we once owned.
And I meet the biggest bastard of them all.
Dexter Ryne. Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car.
Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal.
I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty.
If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.
Now, all I have to do is fight my attraction to the cocky little… beep.
Problem is, an engine isn’t the only thing he knows how to make purr…

MISS MECHANIC, a standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestseller, Emma Hart.

Review – The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon


The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Sometimes the most beautiful people are beautifully broken.

Here I still sit in a dream-like state, floating in a SOULFUL STUPOR, tears still streaked all over my face. After embarrassingly and now regrettably hoarding The Law of Moses for three years, I CONSUMED this LIFE-ALTERING tale in less than 24 hours. This book left me EMOTIONALLY BARE and BLEEDING long after I turned the last page. The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon took every smile … every sigh … every swoon … every tear …. every feel … EVERYTHING!!!

There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion. ~Poe

After just a few pages…
My heart split open where every emotion absorbed every word.

After just a few pages…
I FELT this story’s spirit seize and squeeze my soul.

After just a few pages…
I KNEW that this broken and beautiful book would BREAK ME, and that it did.

After just a few pages…
I KNEW that The Law of Moses was a life-changing journey, one I would forever feel.

After just a few pages…
I was ready to bestow The Law of Moses ALL OF THE STARS as it already had ALL OF MY HEART and ALL OF MY SOUL.

The Law of Moses is a STUNNING, SOULFUL, and SPIRITUAL second-chance romance—a POETIC and POWERFUL journey of love, loss, and life. This is a story of a beautiful and unabashedly fearless girl, Georgia, whose heart seeks out a beautiful but broken boy, Moses.

”Maybe we’re all cracked. Or bent.”

Moses is a beacon of light fused with dark, beautiful to those who know the broken boy inside the bold man. I LOVED this man of many layers. Moses and his damaged heart—both I wanted to save—and help walk him to the light so he can see how he’s a gift. This broken boy never wanted to be saved … until her. Until Georgia crosses his path and he never was the same.

He was like water—cold, deep, unpredictable…and just like I’d done all my life, I jumped in head first…but this time, I drowned.

Beautiful Georgia is a dreamer with strength in spades. She is fiercely independent with a wild streak I loved but also so tender-hearted! I admired this heroine so much!

”Georgia, you better run.”

“What would I do that, Moses? When I want you to catch me?”

The connection between this hero and heroine is powerful and passionate, as if they were fated together to claim each other’s hearts. Moses and Georgia are beautiful inside out and beautiful together. Just MAGICAL. Soul mates whose story touched me so deeply that I felt their connection in my soul.

Sometimes within the rubble is resilience. Sometimes within the broken is the biggest gift. Only in the darkness can you see the light, stars that beckon from above, beacons of hope and healing after heartbreak.

”I wasn’t trying to hurt you. I was trying to save you.”

The Law of Moses is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. This tale takes your emotions on an extraordinary journey. Painted in incredible detail with powerful and poignant words so full of life, The Law of Moses bleeds ethereal and emotional beauty. An omnipresent spirit and soundness seep through The Law of Moses like raindrops on a dry day, a magical existence all over. This story is so SPIRITUAL … so SOULFUL… so SPECIAL.

It doesn’t take long to discover that Amy Harmon’s stories are MEANINGFUL. This incredibly gifted author’s words MATTER. This author pours all of her heart and soul into her words. It’s as if Amy Harmon’s words are stamped with a spirit—perhaps something supernatural—that imprints on your soul.

The Law of Moses seeped into my soul… sweetness … sorrow … swoon … all of the senses!!! This SOUL-SHATTERING story struck me hard—this emotional explosion in words—where I felt every word. I FELT EVERYTHING!

This book is so HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!! I knew this story would hold my heart in its hands forever, and oh does The Law of Moses still have my heart in its grasp. After breaking me into many pieces again and again, The Law of Moses mended me in the most beautiful of ways. An INSPIRATIONAL and EMOTIONALLY-CLAD JOURNEY, The Law of Moses is ALL THE GREATS. I will FOREVER FEEL and LOVE this heartbreakingly beautiful book. This story’s spirit will forever remain etched into my soul.

It was a great story, after all. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. A story flawed and fractured, crazy and cracked, and most of all, a love story.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ’but worth all the’ beautifully broken stars

6 bbb kisses



If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare.

Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.

It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.

And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn’t stay away.

And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all…a love story.

★★★★★ sweet and steamy fairytale stars



View all my reviews


The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

This is book three in the Forbidden Desires series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s recommended you start with Dirty Little Secret.

Review – Misadventures With A Super Hero by Angel Payne


Review graphic

She’s given us wonderful alpha military men, divine princes on a secluded beautiful island, political thrillers and all around great reads. With each release, Angel Payne stretches her talents just a little bit further and never fails to deliver heart stopping, swoony reads. Misadventures with a Super Hero is no exception – but it is. This story is so outside the norm of what we would expect from Angel. She stepped outside of her comfort zone and embraced something so different. That’s why it’s such an AMAZING read!

Reece Richards was a playboy. Adonis body, beautiful face… the world was at his feet with a world size ego to match. He could have any possession that he wanted. Any woman in the world was at his beck and call, but it was an encounter with one woman – one seriously sinister woman – that would change his life and everything he knew forever. He soon finds himself isolated in one of the five star hotels that he operates for his family and harboring a secret.

Emmaline Crist is the newest member of Reece’s hotel staff, joining the eclectic group working the night shift. What makes her work so wonderful? Bolt sightings. He’s the mysterious man in black leather and electric hands cleaning up crime on the streets of LA. The other thing that makes her work so wonderful? Encounters with her mysterious boss. The night crew thinks that he is weird. Emma thinks he’s amazing and well, electric. One night with him and she knows he’s the one.

Funny…. so does Reece. He’s overwhelmed by what he feels for her, the depth of his emotions and just how fast they came. He is consumed by his Velvet, just as he is consumed with fear for her safety. There are some seriously bad people after Reece. He’s such a unique leading man. He’s funny, jaded, beautiful and special. He’s has such a romantic heart and his love for Emma is breathtaking and instant. Emma is intriguing, just as passionate for Reece as she is for Bolt and spunky. Man, she is a spitfire in a pair of heels! I loved her!

I didn’t go into this read expecting to find Thor or Iron Man or Captain America. I wasn’t planning to read a rehash of Superman or Batman, either. What I did get was a book that is so amazing and very different from the other books in the Misadventures series. It’s so crafty and appealed to the comic geek that I am! This story has an irresistible hero and feisty leading lady with a love story that dragged me under from the first page. I was mad when there was no other pages to turn to but thrilled to learn that Emma and Reece will be back! That ending alone is a reason to beg for more from these two. Emma and Reece are perfection! GO TEAM BOLT!

Excelsior, Angel!

6 bbb kisses

Bolt teaser


Working the night shift at a five-star hotel in downtown Los Angeles, I get my fair share of weirdos. But none of them prepared me for the night I met Bolt. He saved my life.

Now, he’s my super hero—the hunk I’m yearning to thank in more creative ways than a damn kiss on the cheek. Too bad he’s actually Reece Richards, my full-on nerd of a real-life boss.

He’s got some commitment issues thanks to his evil ex and global empire—and from having to save the city from a maniac out to destroy everything he loves.

But there’s something that just may interfere with all those plans. My heart.

Review -Leaning Into A Wish by Lane Hayes 

5 out of 5 stars

 I confess that this was my first book by this author. I’m now kicking myself for taking so long to discover Lane’s work. This book was the perfect pick me up. It had the best comic relief but still dealt with serious relationship issues. I was completely mesmerized and couldn’t read this fast enough. Danny and Ryan were the perfect pairing and just what each other needed to pull the  other out if their shells. It also was a nice Christmas read. We all love this magical time of year. I’m for sure adding all of Lane’s previous work to my TBR now, and I definitely won’t be missing any future books coming up! 





RELEASE DATE: 11.20.17



Ryan Haskell loves everything about the wine business. He’s fortunate to work at one of the most prestigious wineries in Napa Valley doing something he enjoys with the people who are like family to him. But he could do without the good-natured intern slash former jock with the wicked grin who always seems to be in the way. Ryan isn’t sure why the new guy is under his skin when everyone else loves him. Thankfully he’ll be gone after the holidays.

Danny Meyers can’t believe his luck when he lands an internship at Conrad Winery. It’s the perfect temporary gig to wrap up his graduate studies. He’s left his dreams of tennis stardom on the court to focus on a new career and a new life. However, he didn’t count on the spark of attraction he feels for his prickly co-worker. When their tentative friendship blossoms into something more than either man counted on, they may have to change direction and lean into a holiday wish.




I rolled my eyes then turned toward the bar area set up outside on the terrace. And immediately ran into Danny. I frowned and glanced back into the kitchen, wondering if Geordie somehow set this up.

“How’d you get out here so fast? I thought I saw you inside a second ago.”

“Keeping tabs on me? I’m flattered.”

“Don’t be. I’m on a refill mission.” I held up the empty glasses in my hand in case he needed proof. “Excuse me.”

“Ah. That’s important. Hey, be ready at nine a.m. tomorrow. We can use the courts at your condo complex. I’ll bring an extra racket and balls. You bring you.” Danny grinned before stepping aside to let me pass.

“Wait a sec. How do you know where I live?”

“I followed you home, memorized your license plate number, wire-tapped your place—nice boxer briefs, by the way—and rummaged through your trash. I’m gonna recommend you eat less Nutella. Too much of a good thing can end up being bad for you.”

He pursed his lips and held my stare. The intensity was overwhelming and so was he. Yeah, I figured he was messing with me, but the fact he got even a few things correct was disconcerting.

“How do you—”

Danny threw his head back and guffawed. The hearty sound rang through the terrace, garnering a few curious glances our way. “Dude, I was kidding. But…I do know where you live. See you on the court. And Ry?”


“Don’t be late.” He winked before turning on his heel and heading inside.

I watched him through the open doorway. The contrast of standing in the dark while peering into the well-lit house made me feel like a voyeur. I couldn’t tear my gaze from him. Straight or gay or whatever he was, Danny was fucking hot. And when a sexy man who moved like a panther casually brought up your underwear preference…it did things to a guy. It made me want to do things to him too.


Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full-time! It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and were winners in the 2016 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in an almost empty nest.

During her self-discovery, the beautiful and newly emboldened Holland finds her muse in a marriage of convenience, wedding a musician, Calvin. The handsome Irishman may be the luck and love her life has been missing.

Why on earth does it feel like I nearly want to leap without looking?

I ADORED the quirky and animated Holland and her lovable family. The family dynamic is endearing, so tender and touching that I could not help but feel like a part of this close-nit collection of characters too. Calvin is as sweet as he is sexy. Calvin’s friendly and flirty demeanor along with piercing green eyes and ruggedly handsome looks were mesmerizing. I fell head-over-heels in love with this MELT-WORTHY HERO. These characters felt genuine…so REFRESHINGLY REAL.

ROOMIES is FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE!!! Holland and Calvins’ attraction is fused with angst, an adrenaline rush that made me feel ALIVE. This hero and heroines’ chemistry is UNDENIABLE. Their relationship is so sweet, so smoldering, so passionate, so perfect.

“I think you might be the best girl there ever was.”

“I think you’re the best boy there ever was, too.”

This romance is no rapid fire; ROOMIES is a sweet, smoldering, and soul-stirring SLOW BURN. This story is a spark of fire that turns into hot flames, flames that set friendship on fire where the hero and heroine can’t fight their chemistry. ROOMIES is a HEADY and HEARTFELT story of slow-burning love and fierce family loyalty, one I LIVED, FELT, and LOVED. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their unconventional love story was MINE. I lost myself in ROOMIES, vanishing into the Big Apple Broadway life, SPELLBOUND, as it seized every part of me: body, heart, and soul.

“I don’t like to think of you playing a side part in a story. You’ve suddenly become a very large part of mine.”

This SPELLBINDING ROMANCE springs to life!!! Christina Laurens’ FRESH and FLAWLESS writing with vivid detail, an original plot, and compelling and charming characters pull you in, wrapping you around this story where you’ll never want to leave. ROOMIES is a romantic journey, a FULL-BLOWN IMMERSION, one that I could not help but picture as a movie playing in my head while reading. I was BESOTTED with this book!!! The final-wrap of this passionate production of slow-burning love is so worth the wait. ROOMIES merits a big round of applause for a romance felt from beginning to end.

View all my reviews

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

Review – As Long As You Hate Me by Carrie Aarons

ALAYHM cover

Review graphic

With every single release, Carrie Aarons grows in her talent. As Long As You Hate Me shows just how far she has come in her time as an indie author. This story of a bad boy rocker trying so hard to get back the girl that he lost but never really let go captured my heart from the very beginning. Kara and Dean have a true love story that is filled with good memories, bad decisions and a heartfelt need that has never been truly satisfied.

Many things have changed in seven years. Dean Jacobs left his abusive home and his girl behind after he finished high school to pursue his dreams as a musician. Since he couldn’t have her he poured all his love for Kara into his music and she became the inspiration for every word, every chorus that he sang. She made him famous and very rich. He thought that he was protecting her from his rock star madness by leaving her behind. But he couldn’t really leave her behind when he sang to her every night. Kara has gone on with her life and pursued her own career path. She’s happy and settled… maybe not as happy as she could be. One thing for sure is that she never wanted to see Dean Jacobs again. Neither of them have a choice when Dean’s bad boy present collides head on with his best forgotten past. Dean needs Kara and is willing to make a deal in order to get out of trouble and save his career. But leave it to Kara… she’s not going to make things easy for him. At all.

The course of true love never ever runs smooth, especially when the public, paparazzi and the painful past try to run that love off the road.

This book reminded so much of my seventeen year old self. At that age, you fall in love so deeply and it is an all encompassing, all consuming endeavor. It is rare to meet your forever at that age. It is more likely to meet your right at that moment and enjoy the moment for all that it’s worth. Still, there are those lucky ones that meet their forever in the confusing teen years and manage to navigate the crazy twenties with that love intact. Dean so loved Kara, even at a tender age and no matter what it would cost him, he wanted that love back. He wanted the songs to be for real. Try as hard as she could, there was no denying for Kara that Dean’s place in her heart would never be filled by career or anything else but him.

I loved this story! Oh, there were moments that I wanted to throttle them both. Their fighting and snide remarks made me want to scream! All credit certainly goes to Carrie for creating a story that pulls on the reader’s heart and soul. It’s hard not to fall for the bad boy who pours everything he feels for the girl of his dreams into his music and then shares it with the rest of the world. Dean may be flawed but he is perfect. Kara may be stubborn but she’s also very wise. The heart can be fooled and she chose to be mindful of that. I had to admire her strength and her belief in Dean.

This was just GOOD reading! I miss Dean and Kara and their second chance to get love right. Fantastic storytelling, Carrie!

High school sweethearts. What a load of bull.

He might have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the masses to digest.

Seven years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to see the person again. Especially when they ripped out your heart and made hamburger meat with it.

But when a chance encounter ends up going viral, I’m tied to him in a way I’ve always dreaded. And the last person on earth I’d want to spend an hour with, much less a lifetime, makes me an offer I can’t refuse. I might just be desperate enough to take it.


The girl in the song is real. And she’s made me a rich man.

I’ve been dedicating choruses to her for a decade, she’s the muse she never wanted to be. Off of our love, I’ve become famous … and a complete egomaniac.

When another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good guy.

Coming face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.
