I have been eagerly waiting for this book for a while now – and finally!!! I have it!!! I get to read it, like it so, so much, and once again I am left excited for the next book in the series. I found myself in the perfect cycle of a reader.
Who wouldn’t adore these rocks tars? Mal would always be my favorite, but who can resist this guy who seemed to need all the love in the world? Certainly, not me. Jimmy had reached that point wherein ultimatums were given, and he needed to choose: the band or his vices. Good thing he had chosen the correct one. Now, the road to recovery wasn’t really a walk in the park, it was hard, he was always cranky, and he had fired a whole bunch of assistants in days than someone had in a year. The next thing he knew is he got shove with Lena, the smart-mouthed assistant who is designated to keep him out of trouble.
I love their banters, Lena wasn’t willing to take any crap from him, and tries to maintain their relationship in a professional level. But the chemistry was overwhelming, and being close to this demi-god 24-7 can smoke your senses and yes, your judgment. She found herself a little bit smitten with him, and he tries to make her forget her ‘infatuation’ by pushing her to other guys. But when Jimmy pushed her too far, and she tries to live – he did everything in his power to make her stay. Because whether he likes it or not, this girl was the best thing that has ever happened to him ever since the band.
I laughed out a lot (especially when Mal is around), and I cried. I can’t believe that I did. But I did shed tears!!! OMG. But despite this heartbreaking scene, I was glad Lena saw her worth, and she wasn’t going to settle for anything less. I loved her more for this. This was a girl who has been broken, who has been cheated on, and yet she had become one of the strongest heroine in this series.
As for Jimmy – I wished he has his own POV – it would have been grand. But this little boy who have been deprived of motherly love, and affection has a whole lot of baggage on his back. But I was glad he had made it through his addiction. He might have been a little hard headed and a little bit difficult, but good thing, Lena wouldn’t allow it.
It’s sweet, it’s sexy, it’s romantic, it’s one amazing journey towards healing and love by two great characters whom you will come to love. Kylie Scott had given me another page-turner, enough to keep me on my bed the whole afternoon pinning for Jimmy and Lena.
