Oakley is a woman with a past, one she'd like to forget as it left her disillusioned. All she's focused on now is her special needs daughter Reagan and making ends meet any way she can. From her night job as Sasha the phone sex operator to her day job of working with needy children she's left with little interest in men. The moment she meets the sexy, charming, pseudo bad boy Pike though her hormones start raging. She's desperate to fight her attraction as he's a rock star and she's been hurt by that world before. They start off as friends as they must work together on a project for the kids but before long he's charmed his way into her life and into her bed with steamy interludes with a bit of light BDSM the result. Oakley's an admirable heroine who's dedicated to her daughter. Their interactions brought a smile to my face with its realism in dealing with Reagan's autism. Oakley and Pike are wonderful together with their crackling connection and witty and flirty banter. She came alive in his presence. I just wish she'd given into him sooner as he proved himself nothing like the rock stars she once knew.
Pike comes from a history of pain that has bruised him but not broken him. He grew up with abuse and the weight of caring for a family that ultimately threw him away. He fell into drugs out of grief but put all that behind him with the support of his new family made up of friends who all visit The Ranch, the BDSM resort whose mystique permeates the series. It's a history that broke my heart but made me proud of the good man he is now. After seeing his best friend find happiness with a loving woman he now wants that for himself. Oakley might be very different from his usual women but her voice and strength call to him. Though she's not into casual relationships, and he doesn't think himself capable of caring for a family, their connection quickly morphs from friends to lovers in a journey full of charm, steaminess, smiles, and a bit of kink. Pike's a delightful hero good at keeping secrets and loyal. He's seemingly carefree but can be serious when in a crisis. His interactions with Oakley were fun and flirty and made for verbal exchanges teeming with sexual tension.
Ms. Loren has crafted another emotionally satisfying read with wonderful dialogue, super sexy encounters, and very little angst. The encounters are varied with a hint of BDSM but always playful and full of deep-seated emotions. Both characters are larger than life whose banter was equal to verbal foreplay for me and I was rooting for them every step of the way. I enjoyed seeing characters from past installments too as it was like seeing family with interactions that were playful (and brotherly when it came to Pike, Gibson, and Foster) and always supportive. I don't normally like children in books but Reagan was a joy with her open honesty and her and Pike's bonding through music. This series continues to shine with characters you're drawn to and romances that captivate you. These books can be read on their own but with such masterful storytelling you won't want to miss a single word!
This is an imaginative and original tale of sexy rocker meets reserved single mom with a few twists that made me fall in love with these two characters and kept me glued to every page…which seems like a rarity for me these days.
Oakley is a strong gal with a somewhat hidden talent and a story behind her reluctance to embrace it. I love the many layers to her personality. Her daughter is her life now and she does whatever is needed to make ends meet and give her a happy life. I admired that so much. I also loved how she didn’t give in right away to Pike’s charms….and there were charms aplenty! I think she gave him the right amount of “run for his money” and gives in at just the right time, in my opinion. Which, again, I think is rare in a character these days. She’s a gal I would love to be friends with if she jumped off the pages.
Pike is equally amazing. He gives Oakley the space she needs and time to warm up but his persistence is so heartwarming and sexy as hell. He truly ended up being a knight in tattooed armor and has such a delicious soft side opposite his rocker facade. He was so good with both Oakley and her daughter and I loved the sexy ways he employed to get Oakley to open up to him and try new things.
Together these two are smoking hot and deliver a delectable pairing of smoking hot heat and tender emotion. Now, I will say their journey has a few bumps along the way and the last bit of the book had me crying and my heart breaking but not to worry….Ms. Loren delivered an ending that was totally movie worthy and had me swooning and sighing happy contended sighs. I just loved it!
If you’re looking for a fresh take on the sexy hot rocker meets good girl story with well-developed characters, this is a book for you! As I said earlier, Ms. Loren is quickly becoming a favorite of mine and I cannot wait to read more from her in the future!
