Fair warning: this is part two of an OUTSTANDING duet, so if you haven’t read the first book, check out that review here.
This had a lot to live up to after a fantastic first half… and it did not disappoint. Filled with sexual tension and a complex relationship that evolves over time, this draws you in and holds your attention the whole way through. It’s so, so sexy with some smoking hot scenes, but pairs that with plenty of tender moments that show the growing intimacy shared by our couple. And the ending… well, I found myself looking forward to a story I didn’t expect to want, and loving how everything played out.
Since this is a duet, it’s essential that you read the books in order – this picks up right where the last one left off. Things are definitely in a precarious position for our couple – Viola and Jasper are two people who are clearly meant to be together, but their history means there are countless obstacles in their path. If it’s not Jasper’s brother getting in their way, it’s the rock star lifestyle or the attention from the media. Where the first book focused on how Viola was breaking Jasper’s heart by being his brother’s girl, this one focuses on how Jasper is breaking Viola’s heart because he can’t see that she’s his. The rest, well, you’ll have to find that out for yourself.
If you’ve read the first half of the duet – which I recommend without hesitation – then I don’t need to explain how engrossing J. Saman’s writing is. She navigates the complexities with ease and makes this a book you cannot put down. I basically devoured this in one sitting, making sure my day was free because it’s a wild, tension-filled ride from start to finish. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review of this steamy, sinfully good read.
A gorgeous, brooding rock god.
An unstoppable chemistry we fight to ignore.
Desperate passion I want indelibly inked on my soul.
Jobless and financially destitute, I have no choice but to see this tour through. Even with my boss hating my guts. A fact he goes out of his way to prove every chance he gets.
Lucky for me, the best part of Jasper Diamond is his daughter. But being the nanny on the road with one of the world’s biggest rock bands poses more challenges than I was expecting – including falling for the elusive front man.
But with the world chasing after us, how long can we hide what others are determined to exploit?
They say there is a thin line between love and hate.
That all good things must come to an end.
Set on a collision course, nothing could have prepared us for this.
Or for what fate has in store for us.
