Lead singer of AD2 Demetri Daniels only wants one thing...
To marry the love of his life and make the day perfect for her.

It doesn't help matters that his bride to be is starstruck as singer Ashton Hyde makes a drop in appearance to start recording his new album.
Nothing is going right.
And it's about to get worse.

I love the fact that this one is a part of a series, but can be read as a stand-alone.
Her injury had stopped her from playing soccer. Since then, Alexandra Kallen had put all her passion into helping athletes cope with their injury and get back into the game. Being a sports psychologist in the team proved to be a bit of a challenged, especially when she was handed a stubborn player. But she was up for a challenge, and this time there was no room for mistake. She had done it once, and she wasn't going to do it again. But then, there's this chemistry that is brewing between them. Is he worth the risk of losing her career?
More than just the ankle injury, Shane Reese's has a lot more issues on his plate. It just put more gas on the flames. Playoffs is coming, and he wasn't yet allowed to get on the ice. After causing some havoc in physical therapy and some teammates, he was forced to see the new shrink. All he has to do was to convince her he was fine. Problem is, this woman sees right through him. The more he spends time with her, the dangerous it got for his heart.
I like the chemistry between two characters, and the individual issues Katie had given them. For Shane, it was his ankle injury, and the changes in his life, and for Kally, it was more of the acceptance of the team. Being a shrink is not an easy job, especially when a stigma is attached to every person who knocks in their doors. At first, they tried to fight it, ethics and all - but with chemistry of this magnitude, a whole rink of ice would sizzle. They were meant for each other! I'm glad they have worked it out with each other's help.
I had so much fun reading. This is my first Katie Kenyhercz book, and this wouldn't be my last.

He was counting the days until he reached 18 and finally get out of their house. His home life wasn't ideal, and it was just an understatement. When something came up and he was forced to move on a different house, with his sister whom he thought have left him then. He was starting from scratch - what he didn't expect was to meet Emory Montgomery.
She has everything a girl could have want, or others would say. What they didn't know that everything may appear perfect on the outside, but inside, she's dying bit by bit. One mistake was all it took for her mother to tighten her reigns on her and make her life unbearable at times. Then Cole Porter came along.
The two of them are breaking my heart. How can you not love them? They are broken, but not beyond repair. But how can you help when you need help as well? Will the budding emotions be enough for the both of them? Or will they be damned for life?
It's a fast, short, emotional ride. I would have loved it longer, go to the depths of whatever they are experiencing, how they finally made it at the end, but nevertheless, I think it was a great read. The ending was perfect, it was leaving readers a sense of peace, and hope, and at the same time a sense of reality - you can't have it all. But I'm just happy that these two amazing and young kids have withstood whatever fate has thrown their way, they have battled, and survived - both have scars to prove it. In the end, they have won.

We were a mismatched set of complications, and craptastic pasts, and everything else that made us a colossal disaster in the making.
I love it, I love it, I love it.
Dane Winters had made her life a living hell. All those malicious pranks that was pulled upon her during her teen years. He hated her too much, for some reason that none of them can comprehend. I hated Dane for what he did to Kennedy. Sometimes it was too much, even his best friend Reid would agree. There were times he couldn't just stop himself from being an a**h**le and it was totally frustrating.
But there was this tinee-tiny sexual tension that was already there the moment they hit puberty, and each time they met, it only continued to grow, and it was a bomb so dangerously close to explosion. And it was the one I was looking forward to.
Kennedy was not hard to love - she's a sweet, intelligent girl who didn't want any trouble. It took her long enough to finally stand up and go against Dane, but it was such a site to behold. I love this girl - her good, forgiving nature. At some point, when he was just too much, I think he didn't deserve her. Both of them had endured lost, they just dealt with grief differently.
As for Dane, I wished he'd just kissed her and get over it. He had done too much damage. He'd be nice, and then he'd hurt her more. He'll said some things that can break heart, and then regret it. God. He so made me cry. His words were cruel, as it was spoken at the height of his emotions. But there were times when another Dane would appear, the sweet, caring Dane. The one you would fall in love with. The one you wanted to be with. He can be amazing once he put his mind into it.
He hated her since then, made her life miserable - and he was the only one who knew why. One tragedy connected the both of them that had changed their lives profoundly. He didn't know who to blame, so he made her his target. Everything was just the same, until he crossed that thin line between hate and love.
Would the secondary characters have their books as well? Because they're a bunch of support system that have their own sets of issues. Their loyalties are astounding, and I love to hear their stories as well.
Once I started reading it, I was hooked, I couldn't put it down until I was on the last page. It was filled with so much emotion - of love, of hate and that fine line in between. It was too intense, it consumed me. You're going to love the characters, hate them, root for them. They're going to make and break your hearts. I love how the story went, no boring moments in between, all fresh, raw emotions that will send chills to your spine and tears in your eyes. Yep, I was teary during the late night read and I couldn't wait to recommend this to friends. Talk about another one of those book hang-over.
My first Tamsyn Bester book, and I'm sure this wouldn't be the last. Hey Tamsyn, you got yourself another fan right here!
I'm 21 years old & the ultimate Book Brat :) Coffee & Books are my drugs of choice, neither of which will be kicked to the curb any time soon! I go through a book a day & when I'm not reading I'm working on my debut novel, Beneath Your Beautiful :)I'm a sucker for New Adult Contemporary Romance with a whole lot of sexy thrown in & my number one rule is I won't read a book unless it has a happy ending! I also have the unhealthiest obsession with the South,and I don't mean my home country of South Africa - I mean cowboys, pick up trucks, sexy as sin Southern accents, cowboy boots and barefoot bluejean nights! One day, I will live in Alabama & I will have my own Indie publishing house - my philosophy is if your dreams don't scare you they're not big enough :)

Love doesn’t have an end, or a time frame. It’s not from nine to five – not just a few days a week. Love works overtime. Every day. Even on weekends. And on extra day just to prove that it’s real.
The first time I met Andrew – HE WASN’T THE BOYFRIEND MATERIAL. No. No. No.
1. He is childish – so immature
2. He plays pranks
3. He doesn’t have a steady job
4. He lives with his sister
I wonder how will I ever fall in love with him?
He was forced to find some work and leave his sister’s apartment. Beggars can’t be choosers: I guess both go both ways for him and Gwen: He needed work, and she needed someone to watch over the children while she is at work.
I underestimated him. He might be immature, but I think he was perfect for a job. He’s the perfect example why adults should have that inner child within us. It made him fun to be with, and he became someone the children couldn’t live without. It was the children, and perhaps Gwen that changed him. That made him into someone his family could be proud of. There is something amazing, and inspiring for these people who helped mold young minds and push them out of their shells. By the end of the story, you will find out why this guy is pretty amazing.
Gwen just got a promotion, which makes her time in the office a little bit hectic. She wanted to spend as much time as she wanted but she can’t. So, she tries her best to give some quality time to the children when she’s around. If you like Andrew, you will like Gwen as well – she had done so much for the children, and I can’t blame her for wanting to be happy herself. Nevertheless, she would sacrifice anything, even her happiness for the sake of the children.
Can she gamble her heart and the children’s happiness? How long can Andrew stay? Will this man stay forever?
They are adorable! I love them both. I didn’t know their history at first, but my heart went out to them immediately. Bree and her grown-up ways, and of course there’s Brady who have been through so much. Day by day, each experience with them, each mistakes, each learning made Andrew a better man. Day by day, they have found a way into his heart. It was such a heartbreaking thought watching him standing there in the driveway as he looks at the bus driving away with both children inside of it – this was one of my favorite scenes in the book.
It’s amazing how some strangers can change and put meaning into your life. I didn’t expect the impact the children would have into his. What started out to be a job, had turned his life upside down. The not-so-boyfriend material became a dream guy. This book was recommended to be by a friend, telling me it was a fun read. Which, it was by the way. I was laughing my heart out. This guy was hilarious. I loved every single heartwarming, and heartbreaking moments of the book. It found a spot on my list of favorites and will-recommend books!
