Six months ago, Walsh Clark was the drummer of America’s hottest rock sensation, Lush. Now he’s living at the Double A Ranch in north Texas, home to cows, cowboys, and lushes—like him. He’s survived alcoholism, rehab, and the breakup of his band. But the one thing Walsh might not survive is the return of his ex fiancée Tammy DiLorenzo.
Tammy and Walsh met at fourteen, and she was with him on every step to fame and fortune—until one fateful night when she betrayed him. Now she’s back, begging for forgiveness and ready to fight for her man. But some betrayals are too painful to forget, some mistakes can’t be repaired, and Walsh is certain that he and Tammy can’t ever be together again.
But DiLorenzo women don’t back down, and Tammy always gets what she wants. In the wake of the lies and losses, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes for a second chance. She’ll give it all—for the love of a lush.
Wow this was such a great book! There were a LOT of emotions running around during this story and also a lot of ‘mending of hearts’ so to speak. The characters and the story line really came together to tell a great story that drew me in from the very beginning.
Walsh and Tammy are not in a great place when the story starts. In fact, they’re in a non-existent place with each other at the beginning of the book. However, over time it was easy to see that they still had a really intense connection with each other. They both have a ton of soul searching and both have had to deal with past mistakes and learn how to be better people. I really admire them both for all that they’ve been through and still persevered. Their friends have grown up some too which was great to see.
This is a definite must read. The characters are well written and had depth and dimension that made them feel like real people and not just book characters. This story was intense and emotional at times but also had bits of levity. The story line flowed well and was easy to read. I actually read it in an evening since I couldn’t put it down. I think it was a wonderful book and I’m giving it a 5 out of 5 books!
(Lush No. 1)
Joss Jamison has it all. He’s the lead singer for the world’s hottest rock band, Lush. He’s wealthy, sexy, talented…and miserable. Twelve months ago, Joss lost his finely honed control and made a mistake he can’t undo. A mistake that could end up costing him his best friend, his band, and maybe his heart.
Mel DiLorenzo has it all. She’s been hired to document the world tour of her sister’s fiance’s rock band. She’s gorgeous, talented, loved…and sick of being the little sister. When she agrees to the summer job, Mel has no idea she’s walking into a minefield of friendships lost and hearts destroyed. She also has no idea what it means to be the object of Joss Jamison’s affections.
One hot rock star plus one life-altering mistake, add a dash of sexy younger sister and a handful of broken hearts, and you’ve got a recipe for fire. Life on the road can be hot, but for the boys of Lush, it’s about to get a whole hell of a lot hotter.
