Nick Blackthorne is a rock star. Actually, he is THE rock star. Money, fame, groupies, the whole she-bang. And he’s a wee bit over it. Suddenly, the one woman he loved way back when is all he can think of. So it’s a return to the backwoods town of his youth and to Lauren, the girl he done wrong.
Lexxie Couper has a cunning way with words and tells a rockin good story. She takes a couple of old Romanceland favourites, such as lover’s reunion, and spins them into a fresh and thoroughly enjoyable tale. Now, I’m not going to go all spoilers on you but the way Ms Couper handled the difficult situation of Nick the Rock Stars return and his impact on Lauren’s small town life was way believable. Faint praise? No. I don’t know that I've read many books where this set-up is carried off well, it’s a tricky one, but here it is handled in a super credible fashion.
The story carries you along and it’s full of likeable seconds who are apparently getting their own HEA sometime soon. I love that. The sex is hot and there’s a goodly amount of it. I love that too. And above and beyond all this, the ending is SOOOO satisfying. Probably the best wrap up I’ve read in quite a while.
