Reviewed by: Karen LeeFor a college student, Britton McKenna’s life is really good. Madly in love with her fiancé Cane, she is waiting for him to return to the states after a second tour of duty in Afghanistan, so they can finally be married. She has been contacted by a popular, local band to try out and hopefully fill in for their lead singer who has suddenly left the group. Then in an instant, everything she had planned for her life changes. Her fiancé is killed in action and her life crumbles apart.
After the service and funeral, Brittan learns Cane had a sizeable life insurance policy which he left her and his parents as beneficiaries. Although her heart is broken, she intends to do what he asked of her, and to live her life to the fullest. Taking the money left to her from his will, she decides to pay expenses for the band to tour in California and try to make it to the big time. Fast forward 8 years and Britton’s life is still in shambles. Now trying to get sober so the group can go on a US tour, she is still living in the past. Britton is still not able to release the grief and heartbreak of losing Cane. When a handsome stranger Jordon starts to make her feel things she hasn’t felt in 8 years, can she let go of the past and embrace the future? Maybe this is fate and the path from Cane to Jordon is the path she is supposed to take. Can you really have TWO loves of your life?
Oh wow, this book makes you cry and smile and laugh. Great characters and I love my rockers, so Jordon is by far my favorite in this story. 4.5 stars
EXCERPTAs tears begin to fall again, I laugh nervously, “Who are you and what did you do with the cocky asshole I met in Miami? He was easier to hate.”
A killer grin spreads across Jordon’s face, as his eyes twinkle in the lights above us. They are hypnotizing and causing me to fall deeper under his spell, “Ahh, so you admit my irresistible rock god looks and my magic fingers are winning you over?”
The thought of what those fingers have done to me sends a shiver of desire coursing through my body and stopping between my thighs, only to intensify.
He teasingly slides his fingers ever so slowly down my arm, causing goose bumps to blanket every inch of me.
Trying to act like he isn’t getting to me, I toss my head back and purse my lips, “I never said that…I just said I don’t hate you as much as I did a few weeks ago.”
Pinning me on my back, Jordon stares down at me with a glimmer of desire in his eyes that takes my breath away. His lips curl up into a cocky grin, “Oh, baby. There’s no denying it, you like me. I can see it in those gorgeous brown eyes of yours.” Leaning down he presses a soft kiss to the tip of my nose causing me to suck in a sharp breath of air. Pulling back he watches me, as he waits for me to try and deny it some more.
He gets a rise out of our back and forth bantering, but I’m going to surprise him by admitting what he already knows to be true. He deserves a little ego boost after the fantastic day he’s given me.
“Okay…maybe a little.” I say breathlessly, as my chest rises and falls at a rapid pace. I melt under Jordon’s intense gaze.
“Holy shit! She finally admits it! She likes me!” Jordon shouts, shooting up and raising his hands in the air.
