Revealing Us by Lisa Renee Jones

                          Revealing Us by Lisa Renee Jones

You've discovered Rebecca's secrets. You've discovered Sara's secrets. Now Sara will discover "his" deepest, darkest secrets...but will those secrets bind them together--or tear them apart?
First off let me say, I was really hard on the last installment of the Inside Out Trilogy, Being Me. I will be the first to admit that I am not a fan of reading all the journals, so I didn't . I still do not feel like I am missing anything. Now onto Revealing Us.
We are picking up right where Being me left off with the cliffhanger, does Sara go to Paris or not?
I don't feel like I am giving anything away when I say she does.. I mean how could there be Revealing Us if she didn't ?
I was sooooooo happy with this book! Finally we get to see the actual relationship between Sara and Chris. I felt that was lacking in the previous book. We get more of a love story and I think this was the exact direction Miss. Jones needed to go.
I really enjoyed the ease of this book, it flowed very nicely, even with Rebecca's journal entries making appearances. Even when we were introduced to new characters they didn't make it confusing. There were a few different interwoven stories going on, but the stories were not drawn
out... all except the missing ELLA! Which I am happy to say makes me excited for the next book.
Sara is picking up on Chris's moods and takes his feeling into account when making rash decisions this time around and trying to make it work. Chris is still annoyingly worried about Sara's safety constantly and that gets on her nerves... mine too. But there is much more give and take and togetherness in this book. Chris opens up and promises to share the last secret he has with Sara. Which really, to me wasn't that  HUGE of a secret, I was kind of disappointed by the lack of "WTF?"  I thought I was going to get. But it was closure for him and that was really smart on the authors part.
Sara, gets the MOST IMPROVED Character award from me! She didn't annoy me at all in this book. I hated her in the last one!  She has a back bone and is more independent, well as much as Chris will let her be. She meets a few people from Chris's past and makes sure they know she is the woman in his life and is going nowhere! I really liked Chantal, Sara's French teacher... she cracked me up! 
The story ends with the perfect set up for figuring out what happened to Ella, as well as Chris and Sara. now that secrets have been revealed and important questions asked!
I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.....

A Terrible Love by Marata Eros

 Terrible Love

 Jess Mackey is living a meticulously fabricated lie of necessity. She's left the secret tragedy of her past behind along with who she was and is forging ahead with a clean slate. But Jess soon discovers that passion can't be left behind—neither her own, nor that of the one man who sees who she really is…and whose unexpected presence may breach the peaceful life Jess has painstakingly created for herself.Devin Castile didn’t expect to meet a young woman who may be the missing puzzle piece to his existence…and who is also the victim of a heinous crime. Devin convinces himself that he can remain emotionally distant even while indulging his physical desire for her. But when Jess’s lies begin to crumble in the face of their undeniable attraction and the truth is revealed, one of them might pay with their life.

Talk about PLOT TWISTS.... there were so many my head was spinning and I am not sure I really loved that. The storyline was very dark which I didn't mind at all, it was just hard to keep up sometimes.

The characters I did enjoy,
Jewell/Jess, she was so complicated and that made her interesting to me. Her story was torture. Years of knowing she was running for her life and never letting herself find happiness out of guilt made me want to see her happy. She did everything right, staying under the radar changing her name and appearance, she became Jess... and then she met him...she gave up everything to save herself... so would letting herself have a bit of pleasure be her downfall?

Carlie, she was funny, witty and loyal. 
Brad her biology class mate, he was funny as hell! He stood up for her and I just liked him...again, another character that was NOT used to his full potential.
and of course Cas, but more on him later...

...and now the ones who were not my favorite.
Amber was a wet blanket, she seemed like an after thought. Like, OH I need one more girl in this book.
Mitch, well Mitch Maverick.... what a complete ass! He came on as this nice sweet hot guy....and WOW the change in him.  I want to say I didn't see it coming, but it was eluded to enough times in the book, that we kinda figured it out!
Brock, again what a dick! I will say I was pleasantly shocked by his plot twist... I did NOT see that coming!
Mr. Boel, or "Captain Ballet" as I called him. Egh, he served his purpose...teach, criticize, make Jewell/ Jess a better ballerina... that's about it for him.
Thad...I have only one way to describe him....sick...sick...sick.

For me this had the makings of a great book, but the holes in the plot were hard to get past. I was bothered by the amount of times they mentioned Jewell/Jess's faulty door knob. I know this seems petty but with 12 women murdered in this college town it would seem that campus housing might get to it .
With the amount of blows Jewell/Jess took to the face and head, I am shocked she could even formulate a complete sentence!
My other issue was... 4 guys all interested in the same chick? I know they each had a reason BUT it was just too much.
Also it needed more details about Thad... not just the basics, we needed more in depth insight as to why he was the way he was. The slight glimpse we did get of his disturbed mind was really interesting, I just wish she would have developed him more.

Now on to the bright spot in this book...CAS.... Blaine "Cas" Castle ... holy crap he was intense, sexy as hell and full of secrets. I am not going to give away much about him as it would ruin the story for you. He captures Jewell/Jess's attention at her ballet audition and from that moment on, he was forcing his way into her closed off life. With a proposition from Cas  the journey leads to amazing hot sex, fights, distance, kidnapping, death, injuries and complete disclosure.
I liked them together, but was annoyed by the conversations or lack there of. I KNOW WHY but sill,it bothered the hell out of me. In the end we get to see Cas be the hero he is, and see how much he has put on the line for her.
The epilogue was as always greatly appreciated !!!!

I would say this, read it and see if you have some of the issues I had...or read it and if you LOVE it please let me know.

I received this in ARC format, so it was a tad bit hard to get past some of the typos and the editing was subpar at best.

Beneath the Surface by MA Stacie


Kyran Reese is a man in control. Driven when it comes to work, focused when it comes to play. From his office to the chalk circle of Metro's bare-knuckle boxing ring, his only thought is to win. That thirst heightens when Dale Porter enters his life. His brother's assistant should be off-limits, but her witty comments and sarcastic comebacks have him desperate to get her between the sheets. After receiving an unexpected left hook, Kyran gets exactly what he wants, though he makes the rules very clear. When Dale agrees to Kyran's relationship stipulation of no labels, she's sucked into a whirlwind of lust, money, and underground boxing. The agreement to keep their lust away from the office is discarded when rules are molded to suit their ever-increasing attraction. Dale fights her growing affection, trying to hide it even when the world around them spirals out of control. All too soon she realizes she can't hide her true feelings any longer. Kyran begins to wonder if he's finally met his match, and with his family falling apart before his eyes, he turns to the two things he knows will keep him sane: boxing and Dale. Those crutches can't last forever, and when Kyran finds it harder to function he is left with a decision he never thought he'd have to make. Could playing to win mean playing for keeps?

First off Dale, is a great leading lady. She is witty, funny, strong minded and a smart ass! How could you not love that? She knows what she wants and goes after it, not letting the CEO of the company put her off her game.

Kyran, CEO by day, underground fighter by night. At a first glance he is taken by Dale and then when she user her "wits" against him, Kryan is sure he has to have her.... even if he is fighting it..
He hides so much of himself, he is sure no one knows he fights and that he is covered in tattoos. Little does he know, Dale sees it all and is ready to take on his secrets any way she can have him she will take him.

The attraction is instant and really well written, we grasp just how much sexual tension there is between these two. Seriously I want an elevator ride like Dale gets... 

I really liked this book... the story was really easy to follow. I really loved the supporting characters and the fact that they were so pivotal in the main story was very original. I almost felt like there were multiple stories going on but it wasn't chaos, or throw away characters. I LOVED that!!!
I have to mention the relationship Dale has with her brother, I just found it so refreshing to have  siblings supporting each other instead of ripping each other apart, Nice job .

I found myself saying "not another fighter gets the girl book" but it was so much more! Kyran was fighting to deal with all the turmoil in his family life and fighting the feelings he was having for Dale.

Finally a book with an ending... I am so happy this was a stand alone.

Axel, by Harper Sloan


Fate hasn’t always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a downright bitch. Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn’t by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved. For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle…her ex-husband. When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door. Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to now. He’s carried his anger for so long he isn’t sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated. How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?

 If you are looking for a book to make you feel, like really feel a swing of emotions , Axel is for you. I appreciate what the author did when handling the tragedies that befall our leading lady Izzy. I will admit some of the crying was a BIT much, and by a bit, I mean it's a lot. I do get it, really... I know she had to find her strength again but I was put off by the constant neediness. Izzy has great friends (Dee and Greg) who have come to her rescue and support her. I did really love that bout the story, nothing better than great friends. There were some pretty funny parts that included a high heel wearing , skinny jean clad male hairdresser named Sway, his comic relief was a good touch to a really raw intense story.

Now what's better than a HOT bunch of Marines who enter the picture to help protect you? Swoon!!!! These are a sexy group of brooding guys who seem to love a damsel in distress. Axel is our introduction to Greg, Cooper, Beck, Maddox and of course Axel, the men of Corps Security. 

Things take off pretty quickly and we are thrown into a whirlwind of events that have kept Izzy and Axel apart for years. The backstory is told really well, I didn't feel like I was lost at anytime in the book. The intensity of Axel I LOVED, but I tend to love a bossy, take no crap kind of man. 

The story flowed really nice, at one point I thought maybe it was a little rushed, but how can you write a book and describe everyday.. It would be a thousand pages!  I am excited to read the rest of the books in the series and see where Ms. Sloan takes us... Wherever it is I am sure its going to be HOTT!!! Cause the um, sex scenes are AWESOME... really, AWESOME. OHHH, I want to write one of my favorite things Axel does, but it would give too much away... ITS HOTT...

I did stay up until 3am reading this book... so that tells you that I did really enjoy it...
I would gladly recommend this to my fellow book whores!!! Axel, is a book boyfriend of mine now...

Inquiring Minds want to know....The Surrender Series by Melody Anne

Surrender Series by Melody Anne

~~~ So have any of you have gotten into this series?  I have read Surrender and Submit,  and they are really good.  Seduced comes out in September , and Scorched is slated to be released in January 2014. I am excited to see where this series goes as more players come into the fold.  I will write a review when I have finished all four books and I can NOT wait! Word is there will be a 5th book, but it is not part of this series, it will be based on Rafe's ancestors...


Raffaello (Rafe) Palazzo takes what he wants with no regrets. Arianna (Ari) Lynn Harlow has led a charmed life until tragedy strikes her family. He’s looking for a no-emotions attached mistress, she’s looking for redemption.

They are not a pair that should ever work, but undeniable attraction and devastating tragedies bring them together in the city by the bay where he fights to keep their relationship nothing more than an enjoyable way to meet his needs, and she battles to not lose herself in him. Spending time with Ari starts cracking the hard shell that Rafe has built around his heart, but he denies the affect she has on him until it’s too late to stop the inevitable conclusion that their relationship is headed for.

Rafe once believed in happily ever after, coming from a large Italian family. He’s got the Midas touch, since every endeavor he tries turns to gold. That all ends when his wife walks out the door and leaves him blindsided. His devastation quickly turns to steel when he decides no woman will fool him again. From that point on he treats relationships as nothing more than business transactions where both party’s come out mutually benefited.

Just when Ari has sunk to the lowest she’s ever been she finds an ad in the paper announcing a job that’s too good to be true. It turns out she’s right. She makes it through the intense rounds of interviews only to find out the job is for a mistress to the powerful Rafe Palazzo, owner of Palazzo Enterprises. Rafe gives her a day to think about whether she wants the position or not, and she’s sent on her way, only to find out her mother’s near-terminal position has taken a turn for the worse. Her mom’s only in the hospital because Ari messed up, and her mother’s the one who paid the price. Is Rafe her savior, or will he take her with him straight to the depths of hell?
Arianna Harlow has a choice. Does she choose love or self-respect? Will she give up her freedom and become nothing but a shadow of herself?

This is the exciting sequel to the NYT’s and USA Today best-selling book Surrender. In Submit, Ari faces an impossible ultimatum. She needs to decide whether to accept Raffaelo Palazzo’s indecent proposal and stay at his side as his bought mistress, under his complete control in his world and in his bedroom. Rafe holds the keys to her mother’s happiness, and Ari must choose love for her mother or respect for herself and for the morals her mother instilled in her. You’ll find out that decision in this book and discover the unexpected repercussions of what Ari does choose.

In Surrender, we were also introduced to the dynamic story of Shane Grayson and Lia Palazzo. See where their story leads as the Surrender Series continues.

Watch as two strong, confident women make choices that will affect their lives forever.

Who will submit? Will it be the women or the men?
At the end of Submit, Arianna Harlow had enough pride in herself to walk away from Rafe Palazzo, who had started their relationship using blackmail. Though she’d fallen in love with him, she was strong enough to say goodbye. We saw the softer side of Rafe, especially toward the end, but it was too late…

Or was it?

Seduced begins almost two years after Ari starts her new life. She is teaching at a community college, and when she asks the class whether they have any questions for her, Rafe is there and has only one: Will you go on a date with me?

What is Ari’s answer? You’ll find out in the third installment of Melody Anne’s New York Times best-selling series, Surrender.

Along with Ari’s story, we will see what happens when Shane and Lia become trapped together on an island when a tropical storm hits, and how the sparks will fly again.

And we can’t forget about Rachel Palazzo, who isn’t looking for love, but finds it in a shocking way.

This story continues the lives of Ari, Lia and Rachel. These three women are resilient, determined, and worth loving. The question is, whether the men in their lives strong enough to keep them.
Coming January 2014

Crazy Making, Words and lyrics of Justin Furstenfeld. To the Music of Blue October

Crazy Making
Words and Lyrics by Justin Furstenfeld
To the Music of Blue October

This is not my typical book review. This is more of a "YOU OUGHT TO KNOW..." I hope if you take the time to read this book or the third edition, and you walk away feeling like you just may understand people better and the music, really it is truly amazing.
~This is a lyric book written by Blue October frontman, Justin Furstenfeld. It includes all albums through Approaching Normal, plus other bits and pieces and a good deal of pictures.~

 First lets just call this what it is Poetry
I will admit it, I am A HUGE FANGIRL of all things Blue October. I go to the shows, I buy the t shirts, I get tattoos of lyrics from their songs, I pre order the CD's, I order the special live albums and I get as many people as I can to listen to their music.
When I am listening to music, I like to try and figure out what the song is about and what was going through the writers head while writing it. I FINALLY HAVE MY ANSWERS!  

We are granted access to Justin's  struggle (yeah, I feel like I know him enough to call him Justin). From being dropped by the biggest label in the industry Universal Records to the deepest of the darkest places... his depression.

Reading "The Beginning" was enough to make me cry. I have never understood depression in the long term sense. It was always "something you experienced for a day or so after something bad happened." I have never experienced depression so I always assumed it was someone just sitting around feeling sorry for themselves. Reading his lyrics and hand written notes have made me much more sympathetic to mental health issues.
Hand written note with the lyrics to HRSA
(High Risk Self Abuse)
Committed at twenty two
Just to get over you
My belly aches blue
Lorazepam flu
I'm down for the count
Always three times a day
Sometimes four
A bee stings straight through the arm
The high swing I ride upon
My eyes can't quite focus on
The nurse with my Lucky Charms
Well a two step was just a laugh
Our boundaries were broken in half
It's a good thing to know
As you walk into group for the show
Knock-knock on the window pane
My smoke break, the hour rang
My quiet roommate sleeps the same
Woke up when dinner came
The man's no more than forty old
He arrived scared two days ago
He had a family of earth and gold
But still nonetheless alone.
I, learned quick Knew what to say
Then three angels walked my way
In Spanish tongue they knelt to pray
and said "God keep him safe from the screaming voices"
They became my family
outstretched their hands are on my head
Now I can feel them breathing
They actually knelt down and prayed for me
They actually knelt down and prayed for me
Don't you dare put me on H.R.S.A
Does self abuse extend your hospital stay?
I think I'll lie a bit
Lord, I won't cry over anything
Over anything at all
I won't cry over anything at all
~~~(High Risk Self Abuse)
Where you go, if or when your Brain Flips~~~
I almost felt like I was snooping through his diary, his innermost thoughts. I would have loved to know more about the man; what were the reasons for this break down, what caused this relapse, how could you do that? How is your personal life now?... You know ALL the stuff that is NONE OF MY DAMN BUSINESS, and I am so glad he didn't give us that much personal in-depth information. Mystery keeps things interesting.
All of the lyrics and personal writings make for a fantastic read. I thought I was just "reading wayyy too much" into his songs. I would sit and think, trying to figure out who he was singing this about and why? When really all I needed to do was just's all right there. We each interpret every song differently. I thought I had most of the lyrics figured out and knew exactly what each song meant.....BOY, was I wrong and I LOVED being wrong. It really didn't change what the song made me think or feel. It actually made me smile knowing that "the boys" ( that's what me and the BFF call them) were evoking different thoughts in all of us. Doing what music should do... move you.

This is more of a personal review for me, I just wanted to spread the word of this fantastically talented man and band. I know some may hate that I did this but, hey to each their own and besides, its my blog and I can do whatever I want (Sticks out tongue). 

 If you are not familiar with Blue October,  I am asking you to give them a try, and really listen to what they are saying. I believe some of their songs will move you more than you have ever been moved.
 To quote the great Justin Furstenfeld,
"I close my eyes and I smile knowing that everything is alright"

Fading by E.K. Blair


Fine arts major, Candace Parker, grew up with a mother who thinks image is everything, and her daughter’s perfection will never be good enough. About to graduate college and pursue her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina, Candace decides it’s time to let go and have a little fun. But fun is short-lived when a brutal attack leaves her completely shattered. The memories that consume and torment Candace are starting to destroy her when she meets Ryan Campbell, a successful bar owner. He feels instantly connected and tries to show her that hope is worth fighting for. But is Ryan harboring his own demons? As walls slowly begin to chip away, the secrets that are held within start to become painful burdens. At what point do secrets become lies?

What an emotional read! Raw, heartbreaking, painful and then just when you think you have gotten into something that may not have a silver lining, we start to get hopeful almost happy and then....BAMM, something else happens!!! I loved that about this book.

The author I believe handled a this very serious subject beautifully. It was at times almost too much to take, which when writing about such a horrendous attack I assume that was the purpose of the author.
  EK Blair described in detail how Candace was feeling, the trauma associated with being attacked. How doing the right thing and knowing you should, can sometimes be harder than the actual attack. Also,  how friendships were hurt, bonds were made and meeting new people may not be quite as scary as she once thought. I also did appreciate how spot on she was with her descriptions of the dance aspects in the book. I also thought it was brilliant how we were introduced to Ryan. I liked the way he didn't push things, starting with friendship and seeing where it would go from there.
I HATED Candace's mother, so great job writing the prefect BITCH OF A MOM!!! Her father wasn't much better. I do have an issue that they just "went away". I mean I know the gauntlet was thrown so to speak, but I just hated that we didn't get the final show down between Candace and her mother. I think it would have been EPIC.
I also really wanted legal action taken. I was bothered by the fact that he was just GONE...I mean it would have been a much longer book if we had a long legal battle. I just thought with her parents attitude and Jack being from money, it would have worked. Hey, what do I know, I make NOOOO claim to be a writer (as I am sure you can tell).

I would recommend this book to friends and followers. I did enjoy the read, just wanted it little bit more in-depth.

UnBeautifully by Madeline Sheehan

Blurb for UnBeautifully
Warning: This is not a story about fate or destiny. This is a story about pain, sorrow, and suffering. This is an impulsive whirlwind romance between two lovers that are not meant to be together. Theirs is not a world with sunshine and roses. Instead, their love blossoms in a secret world full of crime, violence, and death. Their story is about what can be born from nightmares. Danielle “Danny” West is the daughter of Deuce West, President of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. A sweet and beautiful girl, she loses her way, searching for things that are always out of her reach. Erik “Ripper” Jacobs is the Sergeant of Arms in the Hell’s Horsemen. Once a man who always had a smile on his face, his life takes a turn for the worst when a tragedy befalls him, leaving him scarred and broken. During a midsummer night, Danny and Ripper’s paths cross, forever changing their lives. Hastily, their lust turns to love until another tragedy forces them apart. On a journey that is marred with ugliness and chaos, Danny and Ripper must discover if their unforeseen connection can find the beauty in their world. This is Danny and Ripper’s story. Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly. Because without ugly, there would be no beauty.
Can there be a perfectly written book? How about two perfectly written books from the same author? I am OBESESSED with this series by Madeline Sheehan...                                                      

I read the first book Undeniable
 months ago before I started blogging. It is just amazing! You HAVE to read this before UnBeautifully or you will be literally lost. I was completely drained from the emotional ride I was taken on in BOTH books. I swear this author had to have lived with men like these to be able to write these characters so perfect. I almost feel like I am about to babble because I am at a loss of ways to describe the brilliance of this series. 
 Ok back on track, I think the genius of this series is Ms. Sheehan makes these people just twisted enough to make us wonder if there are ANY redeeming qualities in them. But also intense, loving and fiercely loyal, making us LOVE them!
The way Danny and Ripper's story was told had me trying to read faster, just so I could get to the next page to see what happened. I tend to listen to classical music when I read to drowned out noise in the car or the television at the house. I couldn't even have that distraction! I NEEDED absolute SILENCE! I was vested in these characters and wanted to make sure I was absorbing every detail.
Ripper's story just gripped me right from the get go, UGH it's so hard to talk about without giving away too much. The honesty of how he felt when tragedy struck him was written beautifully. Oh and Danny looking beyond his scars, made my heart just melt. A perfect blend of passion, drama and overcoming horrible situations. One of the most important parts of the book for me was the fact that this story involved Deuce and Eva's unwritten struggle. I felt the insight we were given into what happened after Frankie was handled flawlessly. I almost felt like I was getting two books in one.
 OH, OH, OH the set up for the next book has me foaming at the mouth... Seriously I am recommending this series to anyone who will listen... GET ON IT SON!!!!!
Up next in the series, Unattainable

Check out these fan made Youtube links good

***LICK*** Seriously is there a better attention getting title???

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

One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll's favorite son is sure to be a wild ride.
Do you stay married or get a quickie divorce?

  Ev is asking herself, Do you stay married or get a quickie divorce?  One night of letting go, being young and free of responsibility has come back and bitten Ev's ass. Waking up married to anyone you just met would be rather unsettling, but waking up married the famous, sexy as hell and much adored lead guitarist for the band Stage Dive, David Ferris is quite another.
  I have to just admit it... I AM A WHORE FOR A GREAT ROCK STAR BOOK!!! There I said it, and HOLY BAGEEZES Kylie Scott delivers! OHHH Man did she...
From the first page you are asking yourself the questions "Who would I like to wake up married to and what would I do about it?" I like a book that does things like make us think.  I am trying to do this review without giving away to many details, but its so hard, because I want to tell you EVERYTHING, that's how freaking good it is! UGH...
Some of the funniest parts of the book are the conversations between Ev and her best friend Lauren, who happens to be a MEGA fan of Stage Dive! Here is a little snippet, when Lauren sees Ev's wedding ring for the first time.
"Mother of God, it's huuuuge!"
"I know."
"No, seriously."
"I know."
"Fuck me. I think I'm about to pee myself," she squeed, fanning her face and bouncing up and down on the car seat. "Look at it!"
"Lauren, stop. We can't both be freaking out. That won't work."
"Right. Sorry." She cleared her throat visibly struggling to get herself back under control.
"How much is that even worth?"
"I really don't want to guess."
"That. Is. Insane."
We both stared at my bling in awed silence.
Suddenly Lauren started bopping up and down in her seat again like a kid riding a sugar high. "I know! Let's sell it and go backpacking in Europe, Hell, we could probably circle the globe a couple of times on that sucker. Imagine it."
 I loved the banter between these two.
We meet other members of the band...
Jimmy , David's older brother, lead singer and BIG time addict.
Mal, the drummer, who Ev befriends, I love that he calles her "child bride"
Dave, who has lost his writing mojo.
With lawyers, assistants, managers, record label executives, and an ex girlfriend thrown in the mix can these two figure things out? Or will a lie and the paparazzi just be to much for Ev to handle?
I found myself unable to put this down... I would come to the end of one chapter and swear "that's it for a bit." I would start doing something exciting, you know like laundry or cooking. I just could not concentrate on the task at hand, knowing I could easily pick my kindle back up and find out what happened next!!! I just HAD to see where Ms. Scott was going to take us.  It was my CRACK and I was feening for it so bad. The emotions this story evoked were spot on. I ended up reading the book in its entirety in a little less than 24 hours. The only thing I wanted was least 100 additions pages... I have a feeling that I would have just kept asking for MORE, because it was just that damn good!
OH! and by the "what rocker would you like to wake up married to?" would be....
Tommy Lee, I know gasps are being heard all over the internet... but can you just imagine the DIRTY, HOT, WILD SEX  that man would give you.....WOW, it just got warm in here....
