He’s someone she can’t trust…

She’s someone he thinks he knows…

Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, she’s got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night she’s forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of all—that’s when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, never wanted before.

On the outside, Jet is a typical rocker, an arrogant lead guitarist who unapologetically lives a wild lifestyle. But on the inside, he’s battling demons and using the stage to escape the troubles of his past and the addictions of his present. Until the night he sees Violet standing at the back of the room. She brings his life into focus. She knows his secrets. She’s the girl he can’t forget, and the one thing he craves more than his addiction.

But can they ever hope to have a future when their very foundation is nothing but lies?,%201



5 stars - Jet is this story!

I have loved this series from the beginning.  Everyone book has been so good.  I love this author.  Her writing is passionate and it feels real.  Her characters are far from perfect and they make some huge mistakes.  But that's what makes it so good.

Both Jet and Violet have secrets they're keeping from the other.  They meet at a sex addict meeting and the attraction is  crackling.  But Vi isn't that kind of person despite where she is.  Of course, Jet doesn't take no for an answer because that's who he is.  He's a rocker that's used to women falling at his feet.  But there's something different about Vi.  If he could just get over lying to her, he'd be fine.  The fact that it bothered him was what helped me deal with it.

It's clear what Vi is lying about but Jet's lie is hidden.  I had a passing thought about it and it turns out I was right but I didn't think I would be so I was still surprised by it.  I tend to feel better about this since both were hiding things but the real cause of my love for this book is their relationship.

Jet is a rocker who wants to write songs.  He attracts women and that's good for the band.  He doesn't get that he's not happy.  He only figures that out as he spends time with Vi.  She's into helping people.  It is her addiction.  But she does it to the extreme and doesn't find her own happiness.  But when she's with Jet, she's happy.  Together they are better than when they are apart.  So despite that fact that they went into the relationship both lying, I was just so happy with THEM.

The story flies by and I just didn't want to put it down.  I read it in a couple of days.  Would have been less if that pesky life thing didn't get in the way.

The swoons between these two are yummy.  The sexy times are hot.  Jet loves to satisfy her and she can't get enough of him.  I enjoyed that part so much.

If you've read the rest of this series, you'll want this one too.  But this book can stand alone.  It will appeal to the romance readers that enjoy some real story to go with the sexy times.
