About the book:

It’s been five busy years, and Newcastle-born singer/guitarist Thomas Morgan is still punishing himself for his younger brother’s death.

Thomas’ young, fashion-model wife once led her husband’s idolizing brother, Chris, into both drugs and an adulterous relationship. The loss of his brother and total destruction of his marriage destroyed Thomas. To avoid entanglements with others, even his young son, Thomas focused on promoting his music and the management of his now highly profitable record company. He thought he had everything at a safe distance, at least until Isabel literally slammed into his life.

High school teacher Isabel Warren finds herself falling head over heels in love with the sexy-as-sin guitarist for the rock band Becket. Soon Isabel’s orderly world of lesson plans, thesis writing, and student loan debt is competing against desire, passion, and her vulnerable heart.

Isabel struggles to navigate her newly stirred passions with her rising academic career and independent nature. As the sex sizzles, the two lovers will have to decide which parts of their dreams they will sacrifice for their fledgling relationship.

Can Thomas ever trust and love again, and will the young woman he meets ever have the confidence and strength to be with him?

It is definitely no secret that I love heroines who are curvy so I was happy to meet Isabel. She is such a complex and compelling character. Thomas is amazing; he is almost too good to be true yet his imperfections make him all the more attractive. I love stories where wallflowers and sexy celebrities get together, it just adds to the fairytale element for me. There were a lot of serious subjects dealt with in this story and I love how the author was able to balance the sordid with the sex and still keep everything entertaining. For a rather short story there is so much action and emotion you’ll zip right through it and then feel sad to be at the end. I’m looking forward to meeting more fascinating characters from this author.
