Synopsis

You might think you know Brad’s story, but think again. There’s so much more to his story than what Valerie told. See Brad before Valerie came into his life and, when he was playing back burner to Ethan, see what Brad was up to when no one else in the band was looking.

Valerie might have thought she and Brad were inevitable and maybe, in the back of his mind, Brad might have felt that way too, but he didn’t just sit around waiting for her. See the secret side of Brad that you had no idea existed. What kept the driving force behind Fully Automatic focused even while his heart was breaking?

Excerpt

When Brad caught Nick outside the apartment after work, he asked him to take a walk. “How you feeling?”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, the past few weeks have been pretty emotional. You holding up okay, man?”

“Yeah.” Nick shrugged. He was quiet for a little bit but then said, “Things have been a little weird, though.”

“Yeah.” He cleared his throat. “I was thinking about calling a meeting.”

“You think that would help?”

Brad took a deep breath. “Honestly? I have no fucking idea. But…I hate the idea of waiting for the next time, you know? I’d like a promise from Ethan that we’re done with this phase of our lives.”

“You don’t really think he’d make a promise like that, do you?”

“No. Wishful thinking.”

They walked in silence for a minute and then Nick said, “You know what’s going on with Val and Ethan, right?”

A ringing started in his ears, and he felt dread as a shiver tickled his spine. He knew he wasn’t going to like what Nick had to say, but he needed to know. “What?”

Nick stopped walking and Brad turned to face him. “I’m only telling you this because it’s only fair to you. I’m not sure what all is or was going on between you and Val, but I don’t want—anyway, uh…Ethan proposed to Val.”

It felt like the air had been knocked out of his lungs. When he got his bearings, he sucked in a deep breath of air. Had he heard Nick right? “What?”

“Ethan asked Val to marry him. I, uh…don’t know if it’s totally official yet, but…”

Brad couldn’t hear him after that, and it felt as though the world turned black. He already knew. If Ethan proposed, he knew Val accepted. He felt numb.

Somehow he had the presence of mind to say, “Don’t say anything about me and Val to Ethan. That shit’s over.”
“Yeah. No way. It’s not like she was cheating on him.”

Brad felt like he was going to throw up. He grew quiet, walking back to the apartment with Nick, but his mind was trying to find a way to deal with the worst news it had ever received.

BOOK TOUR: Rock Bottom (#2) – Jade C Jamison (+GIVEAWAY)

Rock bottom banner 3

Today on The Book Lovers is the stop on the Rock Bottom tour. I shall be giving you my 5 STAR review!

——————————————————————————————————————

17567890Synopsis

Ethan Richards has fought depression and a host of other demons all his adult life, and it’s caused him to lose everything—his wife, his son, his friends, and he almost loses the one thing that means the most to him—his band. He hits rock bottom and believes there is no way out.

Enter Jenna McCormick, a feisty drug and alcohol counselor, a woman with her own share of troubles. She finds Ethan intriguing but keeps him at a distance while trying to help him face life without crutches. She feels a spark but denies it, knowing that a relationship with unstable Ethan could be dangerous for both of them.

Ethan knows what he wants, though, and isn’t used to being told no. Jenna isn’t willing to risk Ethan losing his tenuous grip on sobriety, however, and is prepared to deny her deeper feelings to help Ethan climb out of his hole, but he learns how to let go of his pain when he finds that someone is prepared to walk with him through the shadows. Can he convince Jenna that they should take a chance on love or will they forever deny their feelings in an effort to keep Ethan on the straight and narrow?

My Review

*Arc provided by Jade in return for an honest review*

I have been fan of Jade’s from technically the very start. When she had less that 100 LIKES on Facebook. I found one book of hers and then from then on I was hooked. I am so proud and absolutely love that she is getting the recognition that she deserves. She is a great person to know and talk to and she writes amazing books (Everything But is one of my favs). Bullet definitely put her on the map and I am so privileged to again, be a part of her book tour for Rock Bottom (#2).

Firstly, if you haven’t read Bullet, where have you been these past couple of months? Go read my review HERE then go and buy it. Rock Bottom is about Ethan from Bullet and to be honest, not a massive fan of him so I really hoped that Jade would be changing my mind about him in Rock Bottom.

And Jade has done it again. I despised Ethan in Bullet but my god, Jade makes you change your mind about him, makes you understand him and learn about him and you cant help but fall in love with him. Rock Bottom is definitely a 5 star book and as always, I love every word she has written in this book. She makes you feel. So many feels. You will be angry at Ethan, you will then switch and feel sorry for him, want him to change himself for the better, want him to love and be loved back and be the best guy that he can, putting his drug and alcohol abuse behind him and of course, try to overcome his past.

If you have read Bullet, then you know the story between Ethan and Val, and basically how toxic it was, how Ethan was a damn right douchebag to her after a while (I did like him, and then no-way José). Taking drugs, cheating on her and just fucking her around, so when she ended up with who she did, well I was literally hoping for this ending and for her to end up with… 😉

So now in Rock Bottom, we get to the bottom of Ethan. Of his childhood, his drug habits, why he did everything to Val and to be honest, you really get to know him so much better. You begin to understand him more, feel sorry for his upbringing and the way it shaped him. But then add in Jenna – His group councillor and perhaps there is hope for Ethan after all!

I’ll start with Jenna first. Jenna is a councillor for a drug and alcohol support group and shes a damn good one at that. She understands and guides and helps everyone in the group and they all trust her with everything. She knows what to say to them to help them stay on the straight and narrow. She’s a strong character but in a way that is a front. Just like her group, she too, is broken but she doesn’t show it, she buries it away in the hope that it doesn’t resurface. She doesn’t want to relive it and her tattoo is a reminder of the past and how she won’t.

I adored Jenna. She was such a breath of fresh air, so lovely and strong but inside she was broken too. It took Ethan’s stories to hit a cord in her to make her see that she does need to figure out her own shit as she kept saying she was a fraud but you could see the love she had for her group, how much they loved her and you couldn’t help falling in love with her too.

You could see just how amazing and how great she was to and for Ethan – to his progress and to finding love again, someone to fully love everything about him and to make him see that he can overcome his addiction, that she will always be there for him no matter what and she believes in him. Their relationship was something that you just were addicted too (wrong choice of word? :P) and you will be obsessed with them both and how they both help one another.

She really is the best thing to ever be in Ethan’s life (bar Chris of course, that little cutie)

Now Ethan. He really is the guy you love, then hate then love again. He really did redeem himself, in my opinion, in Rock Bottom. It took a lot for him to admit he had a problem, for him to act upon it and for him to actually want to change, and he did it all for Chris – his son (and then Jenna). Of course, he is a douchebag and the Ethan we know at the start but he slowly lets his defences down, knows he needs to get over his addiction and Jenna seems to be his new one, which I loved. Despite the back and forth, Ethan found someone to focus on and he sure as hell wasn’t going to let her go once he found her.

He does some soul-searching, we find out a hell of a lot about his childhood and why he acted the way he did with the band and of course, to Val. He was so lost and depressed and you understand him so much more in Rock Bottom. You feel so sorry for him, for everything he has been through and you feel so proud of him for getting his life back on track, for finding Jenna and finding solace in her.

You can completely see why he and Val just weren’t meant to be, but he and Jenna totally are. They are soul mates. They understand each other, understand addiction and they really are the perfect match. Their chemistry was instant, sparks flew and they are amazing together. Even the sex connected them together and Jade always writes great sex scenes 😀

Rock Bottom is completely different to Bullet. Bullet was about the band and Val and making it in the music industry, but now Rock Bottom – it’s all about Ethan. His journey to becoming a better man and to getting over his addiction to drugs. About falling in love and being happy for once in his life. And he is, happy that is. With Jenna. And with having Chris – his son back in his life.

Chris is the cutest kid ever and I was so glad that Ethan cleaned his act up for Chris and before having him back in his life. Everything was for Chris and you can see the love Ethan has for his child and how Chris loves Ethan back too. Their bond was the sweetest!!

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. It’s different from Bullet but I was glad. I loved that it was Ethan’s, that we got to find out so much more about him but also that he redeemed himself and that I actually love him now. Yes, you read that correct. It deals with some heavy issues but Jade wrote them perfect and she deals with them in a sensitive manner. Something I knew Jade always does!

Love you Jade and thank you once again for a brilliant book! ❤

Here is to Brad and Jet’s books now 😉

BEST SELLING AMAZON AUTHOR ~

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

I’ll tell you now, its a good ‘un. So without further ado, I present the deleted scene to you all!

Enjoy !

Deleted scene from Bullet

Jade C. Jamison

 “Hello?”  I didn’t recognize the number on the caller ID, but I answered it anyway.  I knew Clay was working on getting some execs at his studio to listen to our CD, so I didn’t want to potentially miss an important call just because I didn’t recognize the number.

The voice didn’t sound familiar either.  “Is this Valerie?”

“Yes.”  At this point, I didn’t know what to expect.  “Who is this?”

“This is Burt Richards, Ethan’s father.  We met a while back.”

My mind transported back to that time I’d met this gruff man in his squalid apartment.  He’d been intimidating and had created emotions in Ethan I had seen neither before nor since.  Well, intimidating or not, he was reaching out to me for some strange reason.  I had to be polite.  “Uh, hi, Mr. Richards.  How are you?”

“I just got home earlier today.”  There was an uncomfortable silence settling on me.  He had something else to say, and I didn’t know if I should ask or just let him say what he needed to say.  Finally, he coughed and then said, “I was in the hospital and…I wondered if I could speak with Ethan.”

“Uh…Ethan’s not here right now.”  I wasn’t going to tell him, but Ethan was at Brad’s drinking.  I was okay with it, though, because he was with Brad.  Anyone or anywhere else, and I wouldn’t have been happy.  “Can I…take a message for him?”

Again, that heavy difficult silence.  “You can do me one better, actually.”

I sensed desperation in his voice.  “What’s that?”

“I’m…dying, Valerie.  I don’t have long.  More than anything, I’d really like to see Ethan one last time.”

Shit.  How could I get Ethan to agree?  I only knew I couldn’t say no…not to a dying man’s wish.  Still…I didn’t know that I’d be able to do it.  I knew how Ethan felt about his father.  “I’m sorry to hear that, Mr. Richards.  I’m not sure how I can do it, but…I’ll try.”

“Thank you.  And…I’m sorry I haven’t been a good father-in-law.”  Frankly, he hadn’t had a chance to be any kind of father-in-law.

I simply promised the man I’d see what I could do and hung up, wondering what the hell I’d agreed to.

When Ethan returned home that evening, I was pleasantly surprised.  For a change, he wasn’t drunk…and he was in a good mood.  Those were two rarities, and I was relieved…because I was feeling anxious about what I had to talk with him about.

I hugged him when he came through the door.  Ethan sensed something was up and held me at my shoulders.  “What’s wrong, Val?”

I took a deep breath and looked in his eyes.  “I…have to tell you something, and I don’t think you’re going to be very happy about it.”

His eyebrows lowered, but he sat on the sofa with me.  “So…spit it out.”

I swallowed.  My tongue felt like it had been wallpapered to the roof of my mouth.  I tried to smile but it didn’t work.  “Your…uh…your father’s sick.  He’s—”

Ethan went from concerned to pissed in a matter of seconds.  “Is that what this is about?”  He stood up quickly.

“Ethan, listen.  He’s dying.  He wants to—”

“Why should I give a fuck what he wants?  He never once cared about what I wanted, what mom wanted.  So I’m returning the favor.  He doesn’t deserve pity, compassion, love.  He has this shit coming to him.  Couldn’t happen to a better person.”

I stood then too.  I couldn’t believe my ears.  I knew Ethan had some issues, but I also knew he was hurting inside.  “Ethan, he’s dying.  Can’t you find it in your heart to forgive him?”  His lips were pursed together.  I could see that now he was shut off to me.  But I couldn’t give up.  Not yet.  “Don’t you…want to see him before he dies?”  Ethan just shrugged and looked off toward the kitchen.  “Don’t you want to at least say goodbye?”

“Say goodbye to that son of a bitch?  You’re kidding, right?  He never said goodbye to me.  He was never even there for me.  When I made my first home run…when I finally managed to get a B in math.  When my voice grew deeper…when I started dating and had questions.  When I managed to fucking graduate…  So now the fucker’s dying and he wants my forgiveness.”  He let out a breath.  “It’s a little late.  I never had the father I should have had, so why should he have the son he wants?”  Ethan stormed across the room and punched the wall, putting a hole through the drywall.  When he turned around, he gave no indication that his hand might hurt, but I could see pain in his eyes nonetheless…but it wasn’t physical pain he was feeling.  “Goddammit.”  His voice choked and I could barely hear him.  He was looking toward the ceiling.  “How could he do this to me?”  He turned again to face the wall, his hand wadded in a fist.

“Ethan?”  I walked over to him and laid my hand on his shoulder.

When he looked at me, his jaw was tight, his teeth clenched.  The pain in his eyes was indescribable.  “I’ll go for you, Val.  That’s the only reason.  For you.”

I didn’t plan to argue.  I was just relieved he was going to do it.  He thought it was for me but it wasn’t, and it wasn’t for his father either.  It was for him.  And I hoped it would help him begin to heal.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

My Review

Valerie Quinn is a college freshman. Shes had little experience with guys so when she meets on-the-rise rock star and fellow student Ethan Richards, he’s instantly captured her heart.

But there is something about Ethan. Something damaged him from his childhood that he’s held onto all these years and Valerie tries to help him, eventually breaking down his walls. But when Valerie gives herself completely to him, that’s when she discovers he may be beyond help.

She’s determined to try and help Ethan and rebuild their relationship but Ethan is toxic and is leading towards a road of self-destruct. Down a road where it may be hard for Valerie to save him and save herself in the long haul.

Bullet begins in the present. I’m not going to tell you who Valerie is with, but it sets you up with the beginning of Val’s story and how she got to this point in the first place. The chapters are divided into past and present –more past than present but no less important as the present makes you think back over the past ‘past’ chapters to really see how she became to person she is now, in the present.

We meet Valerie in the ‘present’ as I’ve mentioned and shes got some huge news to share. She seems grown-up, mature and in love. When Jade introduces us to Valerie in the ‘past’, shes a virgin, she’s naive to all things sexual, but that’s only because of her up-bringing but she’s far from shy. She finds it easy to make friends.

The first real friend we see her make is Ethan. He’s in one of her classes and she decides that next class shes going to talk to him. I loved how they both had a passion for metal music, thus starting the beginning of their friendship. Although she only really hung out during class and their walk back to their dorms, they became friends fast and I found it refreshing that Val had someone with a common interest, unlike her bitchy roommate Charlotte, who I instantly took a dislike to.

Throughout her journey in the first year of college, she becomes closer to Ethan and his roommate/band member Zane and also becomes friends with the other two members of his band, who live back at home, Brad and Nick. They all welcomed her to their ’group’ with open arms. They cared about her.

The more time they all spent together, the more Val knew she wanted to be in their group and not return to college. She didn’t know what she wanted to major in, so she really thought there would be no point staying. Their group dynamic changed and I loved that having a girl in the band who also wrote the lyrics to their songs made them become even more popular than they were. It worked because she put so much effort and passion into making them work.

I thoroughly enjoyed the journey we had with Val and the band members. You see Valerie as an inexperienced, naive young woman who is hung up on her best friend – Ethan, bypassing any other guy who looks her way. Although she kind of knows they look at her, all she wants is Ethan. Over the course of the book, she grows up a lot, she grows into her sexuality, knowing how to flaunt it and use it and she seems to enjoy the fact that she’s matured and can hold her own around guys and on stage too, with engaging the audience. I loved reading her grow, albeit going back to Ethan all the time annoyed the heck out of me, but in between with the romances with Clay/Jet who was in another band that they toured with let her experience even more with her sexuality.

Clay/Jet was a few years older than Val and the boys. What I loved about him was that he had two different personas. Clay was the sweet, caring guy, who would cuddle you and Jet was his persona on stage and in bed. He’d make sure you had a great time in bed. After everything he and Val went through, I think the outcome for both of them was the right path to choose. Even if she did go back to Ethan once again.

I really liked Ethan at the start when we first meet him. He seems like a cool kid, someone who really cares for Val but won’t admit it, in turn staying true to his womanizing ways, which seems to hurt Val. He seemed jealous when guys gave her attention but he never did anything to prove his feelings to her. It was like he didn’t know how to, or he didn’t want to destroy her ‘purity’. She was his muse and he didn’t want to change that.

Throughout the years they spend together, either together or just as a band, I despised him bit by bit over his hurtful and painful actions towards Val. He didn’t know a good thing if it hit him in the face and it was like he was bi-polar. I had no idea what he was going to do. Drugs and alcohol seemed to be his void over his past but he just always took it too far, causing pain not only to Val but to Brad as well. All the things he did to Val over the course of the book, well I just wanted to punch him. Val loved him with everything and he put her through so much that she just didn’t know if she could handle that pain again.

There were parts when I thought he would change, but he never did. He’d change for a while then retreat back to his asshole state. I thought Valerie was so stupid for taking him back all the time, it got me so frustrated that I was shouting at her through my Kindle. I wanted her to say ‘Fuck you’ and stand up for herself when he acted like a douchebag. Although there are times she did say ‘fuck you’ to him, I suppose she kept going back because she thought he truly would change and she was so deeply in love with him that she just brushed over everything he did when he showed her some affection. He really was toxic.

Now Brad. I LOVE HIM!! I’d love to have him for myself please. He was such a sweetheart. The first time we meet him it’s obvious he and Val share this connection. She knows it and so does he but she’s hung up on Ethan and she tries to forget about it. He tells her that he knows she likes Ethan so nothing will happen while that card is on the table. I loved him for that because he was respecting her.

He was a worrier and really cared about the band when no one else seemed to give a rats arse about it. He was literally their band manager, tour manager; driver and he wrote music/lyrics, had a job so they could afford to live and drove to their concerts. I loved his dedication for the band, wanting to make them noticed so they could get signed. Music was his life and all he wanted to do and I really admired him that he was so passionate about following his dreams.

He and Val had a close friendship, even though there was some sort of sexual chemistry between them but he swore that he wouldn’t go there (again). He worried about her relationship with Ethan because of the toxicity that is Ethan, who was damaging her poor heart over his actions. Brad was the guy that Val should be with not Ethan!

Ohhh the ending! It was just perfect and Valerie really did end up with the right guy. I was rooting for them throughout the book and I was so glad it was the person who I REALLY wanted her to be with. They were just so right for each other and albeit, their journey was a long one, but it just proves that in the end, those who are meant to be together, will find their way to one another and this was the perfect way to end such an amazing book as Bullet.

Jade has done it once again and drawn me into the story of Valerie, much like she has with her other books and she makes it so hard to put her books down and actually get some sleep! It is longer than her other books, but it’s no less important or drawn out for the sake of it, no! it’s captivating and you really become engrossed in the plot and with the characters.

I’d like to thank Jade for sending me an ARC copy of Bullet. She’s such a brilliant person and author, so if you haven’t read any of her books – boo at you! Please download them or read my reviews under Jade C. Jamison in the category box, because her books will leave you wanting more.

NOW, if you’re looking for smoking hot Rockstars, smoking hot sex, love triangles and a metal rock band then Bullet will be and is the book for you. It’s about growing up, finding love, dealing with damaged souls, succeeding and finding true happiness. PLEASE buy this e-book when it comes out because you will be obsessed with the characters and story right from the beginning.

My Review

As many of you should know if you have read Backstage Pass and Rock Hard I ABSOLUTELY LOVE trey so of course it would be inevitable that i would need to read this book, and holy moly i was not disappointed at all!

Trey Mills, the super sexy guitarist of Sinners is changing his bisexual lifestyle and is entering into a hot and fast romance with a new female rock star sensation, Reagan Eliot. But when Trey is introduced to Reagan’s roommate, Ethan, who so happens to be bisexual, he can’t deny who he is or what he wants anymore, even though he loves Reagan, he wants Ethan too! Reagan comes up with a solution that will more than likely thrill everyone involved and it opens all three of them into a new world of sexual experiences and love, between the three of them.

WOW! Seriously, my love for Trey has reached higher levels. It was great to see him instantly fall in love with a girl, as throughout both previous books, he has tend to favour the male specimen a bit more than the females, so when Reagan appears, he is instantly attracted to her and so is she to him. She can hold her ground around Trey and they have the most unbelievably funny banter and sexual banter than I have ever read. They were just perfect for each other.

Then enter sexy Ethan. Trey can’t deny his attraction to him and good on him because Reagan comes up with a solution that means all three of them can be together. The dynamic of their relationship works out really well. They all fall in love with each other, and it was such a sweet and steamy story to read. I did think the m/m would make me a bit uncomfortable, but in no way did it. It was written to perfection and the threesomes focused on all the characters pleasures, so no one was left out.

Trey will always have my heart and be my favourite sinner, so for him to get his happy ever after, with both a male and female, was great to read. The three of them seemed so happy together and at the end of the day, no one can say anything if it works for them, you can’t help who you love, and if you love two guys, or a guy and a girl, or two girls, then it’s absolutely fine with me, as long as you have great sex! Haha.

The sex scenes were out of this world. I forgot how to breathe reading them as I couldn’t put my kindle down when they were having sex. Whether it was just two of them or all three, they all gave each other pleasure and left no one out. The sex scene in the Dungeon was…Whewwww, I had to fan myself down but you could totally see a physical and emotional attraction steaming from each person to the other two. You could really see the love emit from everyone too, and it made each other so happy that they were a three piece.

The only thing that made me sad about this book is that it seems to actually be the last in the series, as you get snippets of Jace and Eric’s love life, even though their books aren’t out yet. Not that it bothered me hugely, as it made me excited to read their stories, but when they are all out, I will be reading it in order and becoming excited about Sinners all over again !!

If you haven’t heard or read The Sinner’s books so far, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Go download them now and start them. They are seriously sexy, the sex scenes will make you want to be hosed down to cool off and you will fall in love with each character and understand their story. Brilliant books!

My Review

I’d only heard of this book a few days ago, and after reading the synopsis, it sounded like a book I needed to read. It has romance, secrets and a whole lot of pain wrapped into this book.

I have to say that I completely in love with this book and the characters and since there is a sequel coming out and another book in this series about the supporting characters, I shall be downloading those as soon as they come out.

Best friends since they were kids, Micha and Ella have always been there for each other. Through family dramas, through their pain and through the nights that haunt them both. But after one night that changes everything between them, Ella runs away to college in Vegas, leaving her old life behind and begins over, not telling anyone apart from her dad – although like he’d even remember – where she is.

Trying to forget the guilt and regret that is eating her up from the night that still haunts her, Ella changes everything about herself to try to be ‘normal’ and not let emotions rule her life, like the ‘old’ Ella who loved going drag racing, who always spoke her mind and took risks – more than likely getting her in trouble. But whilst shes trying to re-invent herself, back at home, she’s left the only person she loved most in her life and the one person who knows all her secrets and still loves her – Micha.

Micha has spent the last 8 months trying to track down Ella, ringing every Ella Daniels in the USA to see if it’s his Ella. Micha is the bad boy to Ella’s bad girl – hes a road racer, a musician, has tattoos and a god-almighty hot lip ring, but underneath the appearance, he has a kind soul. He’s a loyal friend, a loving son and just wants to find Ella because he loves her so much.

Finally returning home after 8 months, with her friend Lila in tow, everything turns upside down and it was like she never left – well at least for Micha. As a ‘new’ Ella, instead of blowing a gas fuse when people say things to her, she tries to remain calm which winds Micha up because he just wants the old her back.

This story is about friends who become lovers. Micha point blank expresses and shows his love for Ella, but she is more afraid to admit to herself that she loves him too, which poses for some great scenes between them both. Even 8 months away from each other, it was like they were never apart, and bit by bit Micha breaks down Ella into bits of her old personality, but wavering between both old and new Ella, there’s nothing either of them won’t do for one another.

Throughout the book, Jessica Sorensen gives us alternative views between both Micha and Ella, which was great as you really got to know and understand everything going on with these characters. They both had family problems happening, and by letting us into their own thoughts, you kind of bonded with them and loved them that little bit more.

Lila and Ethan, Micha’s friends as the supporting characters added to the story that little bit extra. Lila doesn’t really know anything from Ella’s ‘past’ life because Ella wouldn’t let her in, but seeing her laid bare back in her home town makes Lila realize that there are people there for Ella – as Lila’s parents don’t really bother with her – as you will see when you read the book. Her and Ethan get on like charm – although their story wasn’t told  as it will be when their book comes out next month – Ethan works in a garage fixing and restoring cars, with the help of Micha sometimes and he has a loyalty to Micha, which I loved reading, especially when Micha went away for a few days and although in the end he told Ella where he was, he kept it to himself for a few days before she pestered him.

I was drawn to this book from the first page and all their secrets don’t become clear until you get right into the book and it’s in bits and pieces so it keeps you guessing and wanting to read on. You really do end up feeling for the characters – they capture your heart – and I cannot wait to see how their love and life’s develop in the sequel.

By the way – you will completely fall in love with Micha – lip piercings, tattoos and drag racing? Yes please. I’ll have one of those!
