Hot and consuming, this is a New Adult romance about a wayward musician and the one girl who keeps him grounded…
At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for ripped athletes. No one at college knows her heart was ripped to shreds by her high school boyfriend, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle. And then subsequently abandoned her. No one really knows Rachel Mattson at all, with one exception…
Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that horrible night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is also back, groveling for her forgiveness.
Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Now that Kai has had a taste of Rachel, he’s willing to do anything just to have her touch him again, even hiding his true feelings. After all, she only wants a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But perhaps it had been more all along.
I enjoyed this steamy new adult romance. I loved the dynamic and interactions between the characters and their back stories. This is a friends to lovers romance that had me rooting for Kai. Kai’s a sexy musician who has a comforting and caring side. Kai has always been there for Rachel and during the darkest time in her life he was the one who helped her recover. A man who is there for you and who can take care of you is a huge turn on to me. I really enjoyed their story and the hot love scenes heated up the pages. I recommend this story for new adult romance readers looking for a steamy story.
