Series: Mr. Wrong #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

CMK_FrontCover_Lo_Res_Final

Here’s a tip: When you least expect it, expect it.

I’d been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them.

Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party.

No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire.

Unexplainably, the angrier she became the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. I was all for feisty women, but I preferred leaving that for the bedroom—not on the streets of New York.

When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition. What man didn’t have a dirty teacher fantasy at one point in his life? I decided it was my turn to teach her a thing or two… or so I thought. Little did I know, Miss Prim-and-Proper would turn the tables on me.

She called me Mr. Kinky, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: Desire always trumps logic.

Tracey Lou’s review on behalf of KFF

Another great story from this writing duo. A light hearted romance with just the right amount of zing,.or should that be HOTNESS? This book revolves around two main characters, Cassie and Dante, but there are characters in this book that we have met before as this is book 4 of the Wrong series.

Dante is tall and devilishly handsome and a very talented photographer. Photography is his life and passion and he is extremely good at it. What starts out as just a normal day turns into something else entirely.

Cassie is a Kindergarten teacher who loves her job and surrounds herself with her friends. One of them being her best friend Luca and as luck would have it, is dante’s brother.

When Cassie and Dante first meet, it’s not love at first sight its the crunching of metal. In other words, her car and his cab ride.A disaster that was just waiting to happen. He said, she said, who was to blame? The cab driver or her. No one was giving an inch, both being as stubborn as mules.

Their first meeting was obviously memorable as neither one could stop thinking about the other. This was the beginning of their love story. Their courtship was pretty straight forward but the insecurities Cassie felt due to the nature of dante’s work was evident in the story line. Photographing beautiful women. Would the love of a good man put those insecurities to bed, or would this be the shortest romance in history?

Reading this light hearted romance and getting to know and like the characters in this book you desperately wanted this couple to get their happy ending. Would they? New challenges arise which makes them both question where this new development will take them. As we all know, true love never runs smoothly.

I take my hat off to both authors and must say how well they both compliment each other in their joint writings. As with the previous books leading up to this one, the story flowed continuously and was perfectly balanced. I were constantly wondering what was coming next, in and out of the bedroom. Ha ha! You both had me craving a Mr Kinky of my own! Congratulations ladies on a well deserved 5 stars.I look forward to reading more of your work.

EXCERPT

Dante

If she wanted to play, I’d play. The tiny black fabric perfectly highlighted the curves of her ass as she ran ahead of me. When she craned her head back to see how far behind I was, her tits looked as though they were ready to escape the scraps shielding them.Her laughter sounded like a melody as she made it to the deck stairs. It would have been easy to catch her, but seeing Cassie carefree and playful was worth her thinking she’d bested me.When we were both standing next to the pool, breathing heavy, her a little more winded than me, she snapped my picture. “How does it feel?” she said with friskiness before bringing my camera to her face again for another shot.

Glancing down, I spotted her book. There was no way she could grab it before me, unless she dropped my camera, which I knew, or hoped, she wouldn’t do.

Cassie’s eyes narrowed as I opened the page just before her bookmark. “Ahem.” My eyes scanned the words, and I couldn’t help but grin. Was this the stuff she was into? Who knew?
“Here,” she said with a nervous voice, and extended my camera toward me. “Take it and give me my book.”

“No way, this is too good.” Cassie’s glare turned into a wide-eyed look of horror. “Ethan pushed my body over the edge of his expansive desk, forcing papers to fly to the floor. Heat pooled between my legs, wetness coated my panties as my boss shoved my skirt up to my waist. With gentle force, he grabbed my wrists in his hand before the cool metal of cuffs bound my arms together.” I glanced up, and Cassie’s face was beet red, but I continued. “The thought of getting caught by another employee should have scared me, but instead, it thrilled me. I knew of Ethan’s history, his love of BDSM, and if that’s the way he wanted me, then that’s what I would give him. His deep voice rumbled, ‘I’m going to fuck you like you’ve never been fucked. Spread your legs and show me how wet you are… ’” I arched a brow and looked at Cassie. “Wow, Ethan’s a kinky fucker.”

She reached forward, offering me my camera. “Can I please have my book back?”
“Will you let me take a picture of you?”

She let out a resigned sigh. “Okay, if you stop reading.”

“Deal.”

Once we made the swap, my camera for her romance novel, she crossed her arms in front of her chest while still hanging on to her book. “How do you want me?”

“That’s a loaded question, but for now set the book down and lie on the chaise.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Mogul Amazon-2 (1)

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans is AVAILABLE NOW!

He’s my most delicious secret.

The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening.

I didn’t know anything about him, not even his name.

Only that we shared a taxi, and he was staying at the hotel where I worked.

We met in room 301. Where he commanded not only my body but my soul.

The next day he was gone and I only had a memory of him.

I could still taste his kisses, feel his demanding touch.

I searched for him for months. Daydreaming about him. Wondering if I’d ever find him.

Until the day I find myself staring face to face with his jeweled black eyes again.

He says lets keep it casual, and my heart knows that falling for this workaholic in a three-thousand-dollar suit is off the table.

Because he has a secret. One that’s a deal breaker for me.

My Suit has a name.

Ian Ford.

And this is our story.

Excerpt:

My eyes lock on a third figure sitting with them. As I near, the man glances my way before quickly shifting his gaze. I continue to stare at him as I approach, and it doesn’t take long for his gaze to return to me. His large figure rises to full height as he stands to greet me, and I feel a bolt of electricity hit me in the chest as familiar eyes stare back at me.He’s tall. Dark-haired. Gorgeous. With deep, thick-lashed eyes you want to sink into. And lips to suck on like they’re all that exists between you and heaven. I stop walking, stop breathing, because . . . he is here.

A moment passes and Bryn seems to notice my shock.

But shock doesn’t come close to it.

Because never in my whole life has my heart leapt so far and fast. It feels as if it’s ripping out of my chest. I can barely force my legs to move for fear of hearing my knees knock together. I struggle for air, but it feels like someone cut off my windpipe connecting my nose and lungs.

He wears a white dress shirt and black slacks, and his face is chiseled and brooding. The real shock lies in the intensity brewing in his dark eyes as they stay locked on mine. My heart speeds up as I hold his gaze. The city bustles around us. Making eye contact is not something I do often, living in a city of millions, but I can’t take my eyes off him.

The memory of having him inside me returns with a vengeance.

Bryn begins to introduce us. “Um. Ian, this is—”

“Sara. We’ve met,” Hot and Dirty Workaholic interrupts with a stiff smile.

Our eyes meet, and for a moment it feels like nothing else exists.

His name is Ian.

Fucking Ian, with his serious, handsome face and shiny, black hair. He’s as lit as I remember. Straight out of a Suits episode, and I am dying.

Forget when Harry met Sally. Think when Sara met Ian. Oh my, I was blown away and I was just a few pages in. I’ve read quite a few books by this author and I have never been disappointed. Who knew that bumming a ride with a total stranger would change their lives forever.

Ian was a high flying producer with his fingers in many pies. Devoted to his grandma, he was tall, handsome and delectably yummy, but emotionally off limits. Trust was an issue for him and he held a part of himself back as to not be hurt again.

Sara was a dancer with big dreams of Broadway. Still waiting for her big break, she was helping her friend with dog walking duties and working in a hotel to make ends meet.

Even at first glance, there was an instant chemistry between these two characters. The looks, the touching and the glimmer of lust and amusement in each other’s eyes meant that this instant attraction was obviously mutual. They couldn’t keep their hands off each other.

What started out as a one night stand developed into so much more. This was a love story waiting to happen, but it wasn’t going to be an easy one, and this is what I loved about this book. If it doesn’t come easy, then it’s worth fighting for.

I read this book without putting it down and for me, that’s an instant hit. I fell in love with both characters, they were so down to earth and real and I immediately connected with them. The storyline flowed throughout, the hot steamy sex scenes were just that, hot and steamy. This is one story I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to my fellow readers. Katy Evans is by far becoming one of my favourite authors and the excitement I feel every time she releases a new book knows no bounds. Congratulations on a well deserved 5 stars and more, and I look forward to reading more of your work.

ANOTHER ONE by Aleatha Romig ~ Review & Excerpt Blitz

 

Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE.

A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit.

 

*Shana*

Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits, or that I should be off-limits to him.

Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms with gaping holes in my memory.

They didn’t.

We did.

The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives.

And then it happened.

My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then, the phone stopped ringing.

Before it did, I knew one thing…

Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed I want another one!

 

*Trevor*

Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try.

She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it.

The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us.

I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun) I couldn’t take it any more—and she became the one who got away.

Now, everything has changed.

Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay.

That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

From a secret one to another one!

Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Trevor~

Sweet and tangy.

Shana Price tastes like sugar with a twist of lemon.

My mind tells me to go slow, reminding me that I don’t have any right to this beautiful woman. My mind is saying to stop, yet her soft moan is all I hear.

My body has its own GPS with the destination close. Listening to my mind is out of the question.

Her petite body shivers as I tease her sweet lips. They willingly part as my tongue delves inside, wrestling with hers.

Not giving up its fight, my thoughts remind me how forward this behavior is and how it isn’t like me. Trevor Willis is not a man who chases a woman down, pins her against the wall, and kisses her until neither of us can breathe or cares.

It’s not me.

But, it should be.

I like it.

I won’t blame the alcohol. I’ll blame my need to know it’s really Shana and to claim her for my own. I didn’t do it last time, and I’ve regretted it every day since.

When her hands come to my chest, I seize them, lifting them above her head and pinning them to the wall. Shana doesn’t fight; instead, her hips move against mine and our kiss grows more passionate. In the dark, crowded hallway, with my body pressed against hers, I swallow the soft moans coming from her throat.

At that moment, I want to be anywhere but a crowded bar in the middle of Manhattan. I no longer care about Eric’s bachelor party or my friends. I don’t even care about Kimbra back out in the bar. All I want is to whisk Shana away and do what we didn’t do before, what her body and mine are ready and aching to do.

Aleatha Romig  is one of my favourite authors and yet again she didn’t disappoint me. This book is a standalone but you will recognise a couple of the characters from her previous book. This is a story about friendship, love and distance.

Trevor Willis is tall and handsome and a bit on the quiet side. Well this is what everyone thought. Feeling that he was always in his brothers shadow, Trevor surprised everyone, including myself.

Shana price is a hard working American gal working and living in London. On a trip back home to attend the wedding of her best friend, she meets the man of her dreams, or so she thought.

Would love conquer all or would time and distance separate these two lovers.

It saddens me to say but time and distance won the first round.

Let the battle commence.

Is this lighthearted love story destined for a happy ending? I personally hoped so! A chance encounter several months later reignited feelings that neither one of them could deny any longer. Work commitments and distance would once again rear its ugly head but both were determined to make it work this time. Decisions need to be made and actions taken.

It’s hard writing a review and trying to not give to much away as I don’t want to spoil it for other readers. I sincerely hope I’ve succeeded in my mission. My advice. One click this book now. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. It’s romantic, funny in some parts and a perfect love story.

This book is superbly written, I expected nothing less from Aleatha Romig. Congratulations Aleatha on a well written story that held my attention throughout. A well deserved 5 stars.

REVIEW & EXCERPT TOUR ~ RESPECT by ALEATHA ROMIG

RESPECT – An Infidelity Series Novel

“The making of a man”

From New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a stand-alone novel, a spin-off from her beloved Infidelity series. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic mafia love story/ thriller will delve into a world where family takes on new meaning, and even the inhabitants are suspicious of the next chapter.

“Standing at what I believe is the precipice of my life, I, Oren Demetri, was too young to understand that it wasn’t and too old to imagine that it couldn’t be.

The already hefty accumulation of my successes and failures, bravery and fears, and rewards and suffering, had brought me to this point. It was hard to contemplate the things I’d done, and yet in reality, I’d only begun to learn the possibilities.

I suppose that’s how it was for me at twenty-nine years of age on the brink of all I’d ever wanted without fully realizing the price I would pay. Yet in that moment, I knew there would be no cost too great or sacrifice I wouldn’t make. I had no idea how far-reaching that moment of self-discovery would be because as the congregation’s murmurs quieted, bleeding into silence and allowing the thump of my heart to be the only sound I heard, I was a man filled with love and adoration, emotions in stark contrast to those I needed in the world I’d built or the one I was about to enter.

Angelina Costello was my dream and now my reality. I’d worked diligently to move beyond the actuality of being a dockworker’s son to becoming a self-made, successful entrepreneur, all in an effort to earn the right to call her my own. I’d overcome servitude to others, collecting their paychecks and lowly praises, to become the one who signed the paychecks and offered the accolades when they were rightfully earned.

The world was my oyster and walking toward me on the arm of her uncle was my pearl. I’d found her amongst the empty shells life had offered. There was no need to pry open another possibility. Angelina was all I wanted. Yet my path was uncharted. There was more for me to earn, lose, and willingly give.

The top of that list was respect.”

This stand-alone novel may be read before or after reading the Infidelity series or on its own.

Aleatha Romig  is one of my favourite authors and yet again she didn’t disappoint. This book is a standalone but you will recognise some of the characters from her Infidelity series. I read the book from start to finish and found the story enthralling.

This is a story about a father, a husband, a lover and a member of the mafia. Oren Demetri is a mafioso and the moment he set eyes on Angelina Costello, he was instantly drawn to her but after finding out her name, he took a step back. By chance years later, they re- connected and that is where this love story begins.

Two people in love, you would think this was a match made in heaven. It was, but like many couples it wasn’t always plain sailing. Aleatha takes you through their journey as a married couple leaving no stone unturned. The highs, the lows, the tears and the laughter. This is one man’s story.

Angelina was not blind to the goings on within her family, but she tried to distance herself and her son from the “family” business. Living away from them put a strain on her relationship with her husband. She could see it, but he couldn’t. His absences were noted and his excuses was always business.  A business that he had built up and hoped to pass on to his son. However, it came at a cost.

This was truly a captivating mafia love story. There was one thing I didn’t quite understand although I did try. If you truly love someone and respect them, why would you cheat on them? After reading this book and Oren’s story, I feel that I must now go and read the whole Infidelity Series to see what has become of him. Is his life rich and full or he is a sad and lonely man? I rated this book five stars and can’t recommend it enough. The story flowed continuously throughout and was superbly written, holding my attention at all times. Congratulations Aleatha!

 

 

Angelina Costello was the only woman to ever take my breath away. I couldn’t not speak to her. “I haven’t seen you since NYU.”
“I’ve been living overseas, studying history and architecture in Italy.”
“Italy! Molto bene. And now you’re back?” I asked.
“I am.”
“To stay?”
“I believe so.”
“Perhaps we could see one another,” I proposed, all the while hoping that she would say yes and saying a prayer that she would say no.
Her lips curved upward. “I see you now.”
“Si, and I would like to see more.”
With a glint to her gaze, she said, “I never forgot you. I thought at one time…” Her head tilted innocently as her lip momentarily hid behind her teeth. “Are you sure you aren’t still scared of me?”
“Angelina, I’m quite certain that I’m terrified of you.”
Her smile grew. “Bene. Then let me give you my number.”

Ethan Everest stole my breath the first time I saw him. He romanced me with skill, dazzled me with his charisma, and proceeded to steal my heart right after.

I might have fallen for his easy going smile the first time we met, but I fell for him the second time.

Honey-colored hair. Cherry-kissed lips. Captivatingly gorgeous.

Singer Davis was the first, and only, woman to ever intimidate me. She spoke to my heart with her wit, seduced me with her eyes, and became the only thing that made sense in a world that made none.

I let her slip through my fingers once. I won’t make that mistake twice.

Secrets broke us apart. Can a second chance bring us back together?

Yet again S L Scott nailed it. I was so excited to read this book and couldn’t wait to dive right on in there.

Singer Davis was a green-eyed brunette with a beautiful smile. She had moved to the bright lights of New York City from a small town and lived in a small apartment with her best friend Melanie. Both girls had big dreams but living in the big city was not living up to all that they had hoped it would be.

Ethan Everest was panty-dropping, knee-weakening handsome. All the ladies loved him and he loved all the ladies, until one bad decision cost him dearly in more ways than one. Once bitten twice shy maybe? He’d first seen Singer at a social gathering where they both had mutual friends. Instantly drawn to her, an encounter on the fire escape could have changed both their lives forever. But the time wasn’t right for both of them.

One year later and Ethan finally asks her out at another social gathering. Only she’s not quite sure where she stands with him. He wants to be friends and she wants more. Ethan can be quite elusive so Singer finds it quite hard to read him. He has secrets and is worried that once she knows them all,  she will think differently of him. And that is the question we all begin to ask and wonder. Will she or won’t she ? 

That is the question that I’m not going to give you the answer to! This is the part in my review where ! tell you to read the book. Ha ha!

Singer Davis was the  character in this book that I most connected with. She was sweet, gentle and always wanting to please everyone. They were a perfect match even if both of them were not willing to admit it to each other just yet.

I really loved the outline for this story. Singer and Ethan were two characters that complimented each other. Ethan was in torment. It had been a rough year for him and only now could he see a bright future in front of him. He was lonely no more. Letting singer into his life and into his heart was the best thing he ever did. Will they both get their happy ending?

This story was well written and the story flowed throughout with ease. I have read quite a few books from this author and to be truthful, she has become one of my favourites. Her style of writing makes every book she has written a worthwhile and stimulating read. My final comment on this book involves the sport of baseball.  I loved how the author incorporated her favourite baseball team, The Houston Astros into her story line, reminding me of the time I had spent in New York City with the team staying at my hotel. (Bet you wished you was there too, huh S L Scott!). *sticks out tongue* If I could give this read more that 5 stars I surely would. So well deserved! Congratulations S L Scott. 

Excerpt

Singer

Slipping off my shoes, I dim the lights on the wall panel. I take my clothes off and hang them on a hook near the door before returning to the tub.

   The tub, warm and inviting as I step in, eases my aching feet from my high heels and the tension in my shoulders. I pour some of the bubble suds and giggle. That was so cute and showed me a whole new side to Ethan—the at-home Texan who relates to his roots—instead of the strong, quieter, broodier man I see sometimes.

   While the suds foam and the tub fills, I look out the window. The sky is clear up here. The buildings are far enough apart to avoid spying on neighbors. It’s like floating in heaven.

   I hear his knock on the door, so I call, “Come in,” while making sure the bubbles cover all the important parts.

   Ethan walks in with two glasses of champagne in one hand and the bottle in the other.

   “You came prepared,” I note, leaning back on one side of the tub.

   “I thought I might join you.” He waggles his eyebrows.

   I giggle and reach for a glass. “Come on in,” I reply and wonder if he will really take me up on my dare.

   He sets the bottle and his glass down on the side of the tub. His tie was removed before he came in and I notice his shoes are long gone, along with his jacket. When he starts on the buttons of his shirt, I sit up, scooping suds over me. “Wait, for real?”

   “Yep. I think that tub’s big enough for the two of us.”

   “But you said you don’t take baths.”

   “I also said I’ve never used this one. Seems like an opportune time.”

   “But I’m naked,” I say, worried about everything—his body naked next to mine, not shaving my legs before I went out tonight. My mind flickers through my flaws. Ugh. No. Just no. Not like that. That stuff should be shared in the dark of a bedroom under the influence of alcohol and desperate sex. We’re too sober for this. I’m too sober for this. What does he possibly see in me when he has women like Nicolina waiting?

   He’s more than I’ve imagined, and in some senses, it scares me. He’s the sort of man women like Nicolina land. For once though, it was as if she saw me as competition. The feeling is exhilarating.

   “Like I said, seems like an opportune time.”

   His shirt is dropped, his undershirt following quickly behind. Good God Almighty. What does a guy who looks like that see in me? “I see you like to work out.” I clear my throat and want to bonk my head on the side of the tub for saying it out loud.

   Chuckling, he says, “I have a gym down the hall. It’s how I relieve stress.”

   “I thought that’s what sex was for.” I gasp and cover my mouth, wishing I could keep my crazy thoughts in my head where they belong instead of on my tongue. His eyes are heavy, a smirky smirk restraining a laugh. “God, you cannot let me talk when I’m nervous.”

   “If this is what happens when you’re nervous, I’ll make you nervous more often.” His pants come down and my curiosity is answered. Tonight he’s in boxers. When he catches my eyes on his package, I’m thankful I’m wearing waterproof mascara because I immediately go underwater. Screw my makeup. It’s really the only way to keep my mouth in check at this point. I count to five and then pop back up. With my hands covering my boobs, I ask, “You’re really coming in?”

   “Yes, scoot over.”

   Good God Almighty.

BLURB

Kara

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.

Dean

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.

This was my very first book by this author, but the story line was what caught my attention as I’m a big fan of bad boy rock stars. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. And this was a second chance at love story which I’m a big advocate of.

Kara O’Connor was living her life as best she could in the small town that she grew up in. This was not how she imagined her life would be. She thought she would be married by now to her high school sweetheart. How wrong could she have been. She thought that they were forever. She would always ask him at least once a week “Dean Jacobs will you always love me?” And  he would always reply “Until the river runs dry and the moon goes black.”

Dean Jacobs was a small town boy with big dreams, and nothing was going to get in his way. It was love at first sight when he saw her from across the other side of the cafeteria. Music was his first love and after misunderstandings on both their parts, he left her behind to seek his fame and fortune, but never once did he stop loving her.

The years roll by and the story takes us forward to where Dean has made his fortune and living the highlife in Hollywood, but things take a drastic turn after a disastrous relationship turns sour, soiling his reputation. Management agrees that he needs to find a nice girl and spin a story that he is now settling down and behaving himself. Attending the wedding of a high school friend is where these to meet up again. The hurt and bitterness is still very much alive in Kara and she cringes at the thought that the lyrics in Dean’s songs are based on her and the love they once had.

Has dean found the perfect person to help save his reputation and career in front of the media ? Will Kara stand for no nonsense? She’s no push over but he asks for help and she agrees. Will this develop into something more. Not forgetting this is a second chance romance story, will they be able to overcome the hurt and bitterness they feel, or will they reconnect and find the love again they they once shared 

I have to say when I first started this book and found out what Dean was about to do, I took an instant dislike to him. In my head I was calling him all those bad words Amazon won’t let you post, ha ha! But he soon wooed me around. He wasn’t the ***** I though he was. He really did love Kara in his own way. She came across in the book at some points as being a complete push over, but I was happy to see her come to grips with the situation and give as good as she got.

This was a story of a couple who were meant to be together but got lost along the way. Will they find there happy ending? I look forward to reading more of this authors work.
