I first need to say I love KE Osborn's Rock God and Next Generation series. I love the characters the family dynamic all of it. I also appreciate the realism that KE brings to her stories; its one of the main reasons I always come back to her books - the way she can develop characters is fantastic. This new book is a spin off from the Next Generation series and KE does it all again.
This is the story of Amber who we met in Rock Solid? as Aston's girlfriend. For those who have read the Next Generation series knows how this ended up and why we now have a spin off book. Amber was left alone and devastated for multiple reasons and made some questionable choices. The one she is sure of is her band that she has formed with her brother and friends and they start to move forward. Unfortunately she is still experiencing backlash from before so her brother hires a bodyguard an old friend from school who has definitely grown up since they last saw him.
Brax coming home after being overseas in Afghanistan brings his own baggage; but as his feelings develop for Amber there are lot of external factors that play a part in whether or not they can be together. Brax needs to make difficult choices that impact all those around him his friend and Amber.
The story told from Amber's POV is thoughtful and thought provoking. KE does a great job setting up the 2 main characters but I liked that we only see Brax through Amber's eyes it creates an air of mystery that was fun to discover as she was finding out more about him. My only concern is that I wanted to find out more about the secondary characters especially the band - didn't get a lot of back story on them but it certainly doesn't take away from the heart of the story which is Brax and Amber. This is totally their journey and a great journey it is.
If you are looking for a great Christmas read that is a little more edgy than, this one is a great one for your to read. You cant go wrong.
Life and love can be cruel and unfortunately Amber had been on the receiving end of both heartaches and as the festive season unfurls, she is facing an emotionally charged time.
This is not the happiest time of the year for Amber, struggling to deal with the anniversary of her mother’s death on Christmas day and still stung by the public vilification of her all too disastrous liaison with Ashton.
Rock Solid bad boy Ashton might have been the love her and leave her guy that she slipped up with but she wasn’t the reason that he and Annie had issues but little did the public know what had gone on and no-one seemed to be in a hurry to clear Ambers name in the whole debarkle, especially not Ashton.
Brax is on the same slippery slope as Amber in many ways, he is ex-military, but despite the honourable discharge, the military has left him a fraction of the man he had considered himself to be, PTSD has shaped his life in a way that he never considered.
So when Amber’s brother Hunter hires him to be protect her from the crackpot’s that seem hell bent on making her suffer for what they perceive to be her part in Ashton and Annie’s issues, it is a meeting of two damaged souls and the outcome was never a done deal.
They were both hurting in a way, unjustly so but it was a tangible pain never the less, but could these broken souls be each other’s salvation?
I loved their story, both the pain and the hope that they were able to exhibit.
The fact that they saw life warts and all and I think that , that made what they had and felt work for them.
Life is tough but it is the tough times that make their brighten moments worth all the pain.
The author gave me a story that was fully of interesting characters and connections, I liked the fact that Brax brought Amber to life, he gave her a centre and presence that allowed her to be who she really was and that by opening her heart she was finally able to find peace, they both were.
