About Gibson’s Legacy
Gibson Barclay has been famous for almost seven years and he’s only twenty four.
Seldom does anyone pick up a magazine, newspaper or watch a television entertainment show, without seeing his image or reading about his promiscuous antics. He had no need to court publicity with his magnetic charm and charismatic ways; when he chooses to cooperate that is. Shrugging off the advice of publicists and image consultants, Gibson makes no excuses for who he is, and with no ties, he answers to no one about how he chooses to live his life.
From teenage musician to twenties mega rock star, Gibson has seen and done it all. Women fantasize about him and men envy his rock scene, womanizing lifestyle. Only one person ever made Gibson feel uncomfortable about the way he lived his life. No one ever said no to him that he can remember, although there was two minute events that he has never been able to shake from his mind. Both of those events involved the way Chloe Jenner looked at him. It was something and nothing, but for him, the impact haunted him. In the strangest twist of fate, something so wildly obscure occurred, that set his mind ablaze with the memory of that small encounter.
Like all women, Chloe found Gibson striking and had even shared with friends, her own guilty fantasy about him. Fantasy and reality were poles apart and Chloe believed that Gibson Barclay never even knew that she existed.
*Adult Contemporary Romance – Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen.*
Hands invaded my body space and ran up and across my pectorals, my head dropping to see what she was doing. She glided her palms around and under my arms, until they stopped on both scapula bones on my back.
Stroking me, she smiled suggestively and continued to trail downwards toward my ass, and by the time I made eye contact with her, she was so close her hot panting breaths were fanning over my face.
Groupies had no shame. Then again, I was so fucking wired after the gig, I needed something to bring me down, and an easy fuck meant I didn’t have to be charming or polite to anyone. This girl knew the score and she was begging for it.

KFF’s FIVE STAR REVIEW
Reviewed by Dawn Vickers on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever.
Firstly, I loved this book and didn’t want it to end! It’s also told from a dual point of view which I loved.
Twenty-four year old rock god, Gibson Barclay, is a teen sensation. He lives his life the way he wants to live it with little regard for the advice given to him by publicists and consultants. Gibson does things his way. He’s rarely off the covers of magazines, newspapers or TV shows which are usually reporting his wild lifestyle. Women fall at his feet, no one ever tells him no, he knows how to seduce women because this young man just oozes sex appeal and always gets what he wants. However, is the way the world sees Gibson Barclay the real Gibson Barclay? Like so many of us, he’s flawed, but you can’t help but fall in love with him!
Chloe Jenner. She cleans at the club where Gibson’s band play. She’s dreamt of Gibson like every other female on the planet. And even though there’s a split second encounter with Gibson where their eyes lock, she thinks he doesn’t realise she’s alive. But Gibson felt it when their eyes met, too.
Fast forward five years when they meet again. Gibson’s hit the big time with his band and Chloe is recovering from an abusive relationship. Both have their own emotional baggage that they carry round with them, both feel the connection they have. It can’t be ignored or denied; can they heal each other and find happiness together? Will Chloe give Gibson a chance? Can she tame Gibson’s wild ways and will he want to be tamed… can he deal with all these new found emotions and feelings Chloe brings out in him? And does he want to prove to Chloe that the image he portrays is not the man he is, or is it a case of once a wild rocker, always a wild rocker?
I loved this book and I totally fell for Gibson. He’s hot, sexy, charming and everyone wants a piece of him. Even the way he talks is sexy! Chloe is a great female character. She’s seen Gibson at his worst and she’s seen the endless conquests. However, she finds herself drawn to him, unable to get him out of her head.
This is a story of many emotions. Passion, love, drama and sadness are all mixed up together resulting in one hell of a story that I couldn’t put down. The characters are easy to relate to and you’ll want to hook up with Gibson yourselves! I’m not going to say anymore as it will give away too much and this book deserves to be read with a blank canvas. You really must live this crazy ride with Gibson Barclay first hand! Can’t wait for the next book; please make it soon!
