Talon is the sexy guitarist of the Ashes & Embers rock band. He’s tired of meaningless sex, and women who are only interested in him because he’s in a band, and because of his 11 inches “instrument”. His mother persuades him to participate in a social experiment, where a team of psychologists find the perfect woman for him. He’s supposed to marry her, and be totally committed to make the marriage work for 6 months. Since his mother is part of the team, and after seeing his brothers find true love, Talon decides to give it a shot.
Asia has always been unlucky in love. She’s had an abusing, neglecting family, her boyfriend left her without explaining why, and her online dating attempts are failing. Her best friend suggests she joins a social experiment led by her boss, the relationship coach, Dr. Hollister. She insists it’s a serious experiment, led by experts, and Asia is becoming sold on the idea of finding the perfect husband, who would care for her, and grow old with her. The fifty-thousand dollars is just a bonus, but it would be a huge financial help, so she agrees to participate in the experiment too.
Asia and Talon meet for the first time on their wedding day. Asia is shocked to find her “perfect” husband is a tattooed, long haired rock star. She was expecting a clean-cut, sweet, family man, not an inked Tarzan. Talon is also disappointed. He asked for a sexy blond, with big tits who likes to travel, and Asia has dark hair, small breasts and she hardly leaves the house. At first they think this is a mistake, and their cards were somehow switched. Later they discover that sometimes what you want and what you need are two different things.
This is how their beautiful love story begins. Asia is learning to appreciate Talon’s sense of humour, his living in the now, and how he's enjoying the moment. Talon is learning to appreciate a real partnership, based on communicating and compromising. Their story and their relationship give a deeper meaning to their vows - “for better and for worse”…
I loved this story. It was unexpected, in an unexpected way :) It was epic and romantic, and yet realistic and believable. It made me laugh and it made me emotional (I’m not the crying type). But what really broke my heart was a small chapter at the end, telling the story of the real Talon and Asia. You’ll have to read it to find out.
I loved the banter, the joy that these two discovered. And Pixie!! Talon reminds me of another fun rocker, Mal from Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series. He just sort of goes all in & takes Asia along for the ride. He works to break through her barriers while struggling w/ his own, and she has such a giving heart as well... There are some heartbreaking moments - there were tears shed, but there was so much joy & laughter in their story. I highly recommend it! : )
The premise of the book, which I've read in a few other romance novels is that this couple, Talon and Asia, who don't know each other, agree to participate in an experiment where they get married and agree to stay married for six months. They have been matched by a group based on their answers to multiple questionnaires.
What's different about this book is it paints a much more realistic picture of how a couple would behave if they were crazy enough to participate in a stunt like this. Initially, they don't really like each other and can't figure out how they could have possibly been matched up. There is a lot of awkwardness and are tons of misunderstandings, yet, slowly but surely they begin to like and eventually love each other. Even after they realize they're in love, they have to overcome a series of obstacles and up to the very end of the book,it's not clear they're going to get to their HEA but they do.
This book had me laughing, crying a little (the story of the real life Talon and Asia in the afterword brought out my hankie), and at times I was furious with both characters. Asia had lots of abandonment issues and at times suffered from depression but sometimes I wanted to shake her and tell her to move on! Talon could be obtuse and a butt at times, yet there was something about him that was really endearing.
I hope Asher's story is next, it was nice to visit with the characters from the other books. We also REALLY need to finish Vandal's story!!
