Sometimes love is more than tragedy or bliss.
Ambitious 22-year-old Lexie Waters is intent on taking the advertising world by storm. When she’s offered the soon to be open position she’s been vying for at a swanky advertising agency, there’s only one last summer separating her from dreams of corporate success. Still bitter from catching her boyfriend cheating, she heads out for a night of fun to see her favorite band, Devil’s Garden, but fun turns into utter embarrassment when she insults the enticingly confident lead singer, Van Sinclair. Van is intrigued by Lexie’s ability to resist his charm and secretly obtains her cell number. Shocked but eager to get to know this captivating rocker, Lexie accepts Van’s invitation to see his next show, which requires an overnight stay. The overwhelming feelings that follow take them both by surprise, and with two months left before starting her sought after new position, Lexie joins the tour. As she’s catapulted into the world of groupies and wild parties, she questions Van’s commitment to her. So what happens at summer’s end when time runs out?
This is one of those books that had a lot of little ups and downs leading up to the big climax. And let me tell you, I didn’t see that big climax until shortly before it happened. There was lots of steamy scenes and some drama but it was a sweet romance overall.
Van and Lexie hit off right away. She’s getting over a cheating ex-boyfriend and he’s never had a relationship before. Despite Van being new to having an actual girlfriend (as opposed to one night stand groupies) is actually very sweet and protective. He quickly embraces his role in Lexie’s life and is willing to do anything to keep her there. Lexie is sweet, personable, resilient, and determined. She tries to follow her head a little too much at times which got a little annoying but always let friends talk sense to her which was nice to see. Both of them were really great characters to read about and had wonderful personalities.
The story line was engaging and I easily fell into Van and Lexie’s world. This was a great story about following your heart and taking the right chances to embark on those once in a lifetime chances that make everything in life worth it. I definitely recommend picking up this book. 4 out of 5 books!
