I gave you exactly what you wanted, and you still want more…I thought I had everything: the fame, the money, and a girl on top — of the charts, that is.But it turns out, it means nothing without her. The only girl who ever knew the real me. She doesn’t give a fuck about the platinum records or the VIP lounge, she wants more than that. She wants a future with me.
And I’m all in.
All the way in.
live with my wife in Venice. I’ve also lived in NYC, India and Thailand. I
love to travel and have been to Central America, Australia, Europe and the
Middle East. I have a boring corporate day job where I cover people’s asses for
a living and am hoping to leave this world soon and make a living doing the
thing I love – writing. I enjoy surfing and I’m also a martial artist, my other
main passion, which I have practiced since the age of 5.
OHHHHH THE FEELS!!!! That ending gave me the damn FEELS!!! All goosebumply!! And tears. That ending was perfection and then some.
Part 2 starts with Brando wallowing in his misery. I just want to hold and squeeze him. It’ll be ok Brando. God I loved this man. Hands down. My favorite of Mr. Hawkins men. I love the way that Brando loves. He’s fierce, protective, loyal. And poor Brando is miserable. Not only does he not have Haley anymore. He is now forced to go on tour with her. And also his evil, wicked, nasty, cold-hearted *insert word that rhymes with punt* ex girlfriend, Lexi. Now I’m not a violent person. BUT, I wanted to scratch her eyeballs out. Many times. And I prayed that Haley did.
So what happens when you put these three together for a tour….Ohhh I’m sure you can imagine all the fun that was had!! Even though I hated Lexi, she was a great part of the story. I love these angsty type of reads. I love that emotion that it brings out of you. And if only written right, can succeed in all of these feelings. And yes, it was written great!! If a book manages to turn sweet little me into a ragey violent person…then it’s s win for me!!
And Haley. She’s torn with giving into her sexual cravings with Brando. Can you blame her. The sex and chemistry between these two were off the charts!!! And not just the music ones!! We get a whole menu of loving! From quickies, to tender, to holy fucking hotness!! Yes. It was quite a sexual delight. Can you now see why Haley is struggling?? But will she be able to walk away for good. Will she be able to forgive. And will she knock Lexi the fuck out. Ok. That’s just wishful thinking on my part. See, again with the violence!
I say after every book that I read of JD’s “Ohhh this is my new favorite!!!!” I know, I annoy myself. But seriously, this is my new favorite series!! Besides the whole music scene, I fell in love with the story and with Brando and Haley. I believe you will too. I love how JD has the ability to shock me with each new book. I always go in thinking ok, this is what it’s going to be about. But then I’m always wrong. Cause I get something so much more. Every single time. You get a great story with great writing. A book that will immediately have you sucked in. From beginning to end. Kudos, my friend, on another amazing series!! If you haven’t picked Brando up yet, do it now!
