Rating: 4.5 stars
I really enjoyed reading this book–in fact I found it hard to put down and if it wasn’t for my pesky job that pays my bills I probably would’ve opted to stay in bed all day with a cup of coffee and this book. Within the first few pages I was completely hooked and wanting to know more about the Lanie and her first boyfriend and now mega rock star Noel the lead singer of the band Black Falcon.
Lanie recently graduated college and landed an internship at the most prestigious advertising firm in New York City. Having this position is a great opportunity for her to make a name for herself and hopefully land a full-time paid position. She had no idea what fate had in store for her. Sitting in a normal meeting the head of the company–Diana–asks for a volunteer to make initial contact with a new client–the Black Falcons. Everyone in the meeting basically chickens out by either out right refusal or by looking anywhere but at Diana. Lanie wasn’t so lucky and she gets the job of meeting the Black Falcons the next night. Having no experience at all, her best friend, Aubrey volunteers to go with Lanie to oversee the meeting. No one in the company–except Aubrey–knows of Lanie’s history with Noel. To say things ended badly between them is an understatement. There is a lot of history and crushed hearts between the two.
Their first meeting is quite entertaining and not at all positive and productive like she would’ve liked. I won’t go into detail because you really should just experience for yourself but I know my mouth hung open for a second and then a stream of profanity fell out of it! She returns to New York thinking she is done. When Diana calls her into her office Lanie knows that once she tells her what happened she will be given the boot. However, what she doesn’t know is that Noel wants her–on this charity project and back in his life.
They agree to meet at a restaurant and it is anything but professional–even though Lanie insists that is the only reason for the meeting. After he proposes that she go out on the road with him so that he can make sure his charity is being promoted the way he envisions it. She calls him out on his real plans and tells him how she feels about his plan and how her boss will never let her leave for two weeks.
To her surprise her boss is all for it and she winds up on tour with Black Falcon and this is where all the steamy, hot and squeal moments occur. Lanie and Noel have great chemistry and I give her credit she really tries to fight it but come on no one could resist the charms of Noel–especially when you factor in their history. There is a lot of drama that occurs in those two weeks and there are secrets within secrets but is there love for each other enough to overcome it all. Around the half-way point in the book I just knew something was going to occur to throw a wrench in this possible rekindled relationship.
Here are some of my favorite quotes and/or excerpts from the book:
“This next song goes out to the girl who shredded my heart without hesitation back in high school. It’s called Ball Busting Bitch, and Lanie, this one’s for you.”
“He leans across the small dining table. His nearness causes a chemical reaction inside of me and I’m suddenly hot all over. I take another sip of water just as he says, ‘The chance to get back inside that tight, little body of yours.’ I nearly spit the contents of my drink in his face.”
“The things a simple kiss from this man can do to me are unreal. It should be against the law for someone to be so hot and sweet. It’s definitely an instant panty wetting combination.”
“You’re my heart, Lane. You’re my everything.”
(by Michelle A. Valentine)
There are some great steamy scenes in this book and as I said before there is great chemistry–off the charts really. You want them to end up together but will they be able to overcome their past and current situation to have that happily ever after? Well, you’ll have to read to find out! Happy reading!!
