I hated that it ended on a cliffhanger. And after reading some of the reviews for book 2, I am undecided if I will read the next book. I like the characters in book one, and it seems as if the characters may devolve into ones I don't like in book two. So not sure if I want to spend money that will make me lose my love for Riley and Jax
41/2 stars for book one....
After finishing the Novella I had to read the next. It gets you hooked and curious to see what happens with jax and Riley. I wasn't disappointed either. Riley didn't fall down at the sexy mans feet like other females, she made him work for it and it was quite interesting and hot most of the time but I knew she couldn't hold out long and cannot blame her. He is hot after all. I had no idea of the horrific past Jax suffers from. It infuriates me and I love that Riley doesn't let things go so easily. I hate jax felt he was backed In a corner but I'm so happy that he wants her more than hiding his past because she is the one woman you definitely want on your side. The ending of this book is a cliffhanger but one hat makes you respect Riley even more. She is going to protect Jax. She is my hero. Can't wait for the next book.
I have to be honest, when I heard this story was going to be about Riley Hewitt, who is from the Forbidden series, I honestly just wanted to see what was going on with Kristen and Vincent because I loved their story so much and I miss them and I knew they were bound to be mentioned in this story. I only knew Riley as the supportive best friend of Kristen and she was absolutely gorgeous.
I don't want to give to much of the story away because I really think this story is something everyone who enjoys these types of stories will really like. Riley and Jax are like oil and water. He's this bad boy rocker with a troubled past and Riley is this thrill seeker accountant who has a history of dating bad boys. So of course, Jax is right up her alley. She just didn't expect to fall so deep for him. The sexual tension between the two of them is unbelievable. It got to a point where I just said "For christ sake, just sleep with each other already. Stop the madness." But the build up so worth it. I loved every minute of it.
This book is more than I expected and I honestly can't wait for the next one. I can't wait to get into Jax's head and see what else is troubling him. I have to say I have a weakness for guys with a troubled past. I know, it's weird, but I can't help it. I'm not sure when the next book is coming out, but I can't wait. You won't regret reading this story. It is pretty entertaining and well written. Great job Priscilla.
Okay, so it's pretty obvious that I would fall in love with a dark haired rock God but what I didn't expect to do was fall in love with the sassy heroine of the story, Riley Hewit. But how can I not when she is constantly is coming up with witty comebacks for Jax's arrogant responses. Like the time he tried to say that she owed him for choosing her over some groupies and she responded with, "Owe you? Owe you what? A slap in the face?" I seriously died. I already love this girls spunk.
I pretty much love everything about Riley Hewitt. She's smart, sexy and has a snazzy comeback for everything. Is there really such a thing as a tour accountant and if so, why aren't I one?! All of the characters are very well developed especially the bands drummer, Chewie. Skye is super cute and very accepting of this new female on board her tour bus. It's so nice to see that she's hospitable and not territorial like most girls we've seen surrounded by Jax.
Now, where to start with Jax?. He's just like any other rock star. Tattooed and sexy as s***, but his leather pants make me wanna barf. I really wish that he had a better stage outfit. And speaking of leather pants brings me to an issue with the storyline. During the last part of the book, Jax finished the show at the outdoor venue and Riley watched him change out of his leather pants and put on some dark denim street clothes. The two then went on a motorcycle ride and happened to run into his long lost father who taunts him for wearing leather pants but according to the story, Jax should be in dark denim jeans....this really bothered me and for this reason, the book receives 4 instead of 5 stars.
One thing I can say is that I was far more impressed with this book than the Wrecked book, but I'm still looking for that perfect balance. The Wrecked book seemed to have too much sex and this one seemed to have not enough. I will admit that there is something about West's books that pull me in but then some thing happens to where I'm not interested enough to continue the series. I really can't explain the reason for it. Maybe they are just too long. Instead of close to 300 pages, they should be narrowed down to 200. They do seem to start out really strong with a boiling intensity between the two love interests but then they hook up around 50 percent and BOOM, there's no more reason to finish the story.
Overall, I enjoyed this read just have I enjoyed other books by West and I am sure I will continue to support her work.
