KIRKUS REVIEW

When former wild child Natalie Clayton reconnects with Paddy Hurley, former fling–turned–famous rock star, she's determined to resist him, but he has a few tricks up his sleeve that might convince her to give him a chance.

Natalie has spent her adult life overcoming a tumultuous childhood and her party-girl teen years, which included a hot and heavy two-week affair with Paddy, an up-and-coming rock star, the year before she went to college. Now a respectable librarian in a small town, she's completely distanced herself from her wanton past, and while she's aware that her new home is also the hometown of the Hurley brothers, who've now made it big in the rock world, she never expected to run into any of them. And never had, until now. Meeting Paddy throws Natalie for a loop, especially when he recognizes her and becomes set on revisiting their past. Except he seems eager to forge something real this time. At first resolved to ignore him, Natalie is swayed by his slow, sweet courtship. As she is drawn in by his family and seduced by his sexy steadfastness, she begins to open her heart, though once the band goes on tour, and her own estranged family takes advantage of the unwelcome publicity that comes with her connection to Paddy, their relationship becomes strained. It will take a lot of trust and understanding to make it through the crazy and into a forever love. Dane pens a sexy, layered romance, with some typical rock-star conflicts but also some touching and realistic family drama. The author shines at creating character-authentic conflict—and writing a very steamy sex scene.

The perfect combination of sexy rock-star fantasy and emotionally tender romance.
