“I’m no savior. You can be sure of that. But I’ll gladly stand in the flames if it means keeping you from the fire.”-Leif
His kiss was like candy. Crystallized brown sugar. Shark as a knife.-Mia
Not my first read by author, she is one of my favorites & I have read all her books! I love LOVE her stand alone’s as much as her series! So I was super excited for this one, the blurb blew me away!! And the beginning…honestly, top favorite meets of hero and heroine!
Mia the heroine is a interesting woman, she is shy, a little thing, beautiful beyond words, a mom and strong. After a failed relationship (by failed i mena crashed and burned, been there done that a few times and had the t-shirt to prove it)I have a love/hate relationship with her and her ex that’s all I am saying. Well while Mia is Lyrik’s little sister (he is the famous ever so singer or I should say rock-star) which bu the way YOU WILL ALSO LOVE. When danger comes knocking on her door, there isn’t anything more she can do then be close to the one person that has always been there for her and always protected her, her big brother. Moving her kids to Georgia, she can’t believe that she stumbles upon the mystery man she met at a LA party she attended at her brother’s. It was a dark meet, two strangers found themselves in the same room, same time, lost but looking for something. One with big daemons daunting him and the other likewise but in a different sense. It was really ‘dark romance’ type of meet I have to say, sensual, sexy, dangerous…she was running away from danger while running towards it’s all in the same.
Leif the hero actually is someone that Mia’s older brother has known for a while but he plays for and with another band. When Lyrik is in a bind, he reaches out to him for an offer Leif can’t refuse. He moves out to Georgia at Lyrik’s property to be close, only to come face to face with his illusion. Illusion because up until know, Leif though he had made her up, made up the scenario that occurred that night, the sizzle, the feelings. What hit him the most is, that she was a mom on top of being off-limits but then that. And you will get more in the story to why I said it like that.
She’d moved into my room and taken a seat at the bar, holding her glass in the air in a silent cheer.
She truly was a bitch.
They both just wanted to…to…FEEL something. Aside from theri pasts and the danger, and everything swirling around them…both Lief and Mia can’t deny the connection they have, how the air is more crisp around one another. This truly is magical to read, the feelings and words between the hero and heroine, will give you shivers. But everything beautiful has it’s dark side and this comes in the form of both their past, secrets, little of mystery, suspense and twists. Which ALL are in here, I was so caught up with the book that nothing else around me seemed to exists. Truly an amazing book because Amy the author, is magic with her words. Really don’t want to spoil any more, will say that it contains the right amount of angst, passion and udderly beautiful romance.
