Death—it is inevitable, but I didn't know it could come so early.
If things didn't change, mine would be sooner than expected.
My life hasn't been easy, though with the way I act you’d think it has been.
I'm a joker, a partier, a playboy, a prankster. But I'm also broken.
A shell of a man.
Ryan Hunter, lead guitarist with nothing to live for.
Not even music soothes me completely.
My band is back together, we're doing really well—but I'm in a rut.
I'm lost, thinking about my past is swallowing me whole.
Especially since she turned up.
Our new PR manager. She’s feisty, in control and so damn sexy I can't stand it.
But that woman is not only taking my PR role from me, she's also taking my breath away, and that I won't stand for.
Not with my past, not with my demons.
Tillie Marks has to go.
And I will make damn sure it happens!
This is Ryan's story. I was intrigued with Ryan in Pick, book one and Danger's story, so I was happy to read this. This story is told from both Ryan and Tillie's POV's.
Ryan does the PR for his band Recoil. But their new manager hires a sassy, bright woman to handle it. He resents that since he has been doing the PR from the band's beginning.
"Okay, so when do we get to meet the pompous asshole who will be taking us on?" I ask....... "I believe that pompous asshole would be me, Mister Hunter.....
Needless to say, they get off on the wrong foot, but there is a connection between them from the beginning. Ryan begins with practical jokes to frustrate and annoy Tillie. Some of them made me laugh out loud, so I was disappointed when I thought their relationship moved a bit too fast.
"Day one of Ryan's yoga class and he's doing great," Tillie says as the instructor tells me the next move is called the Downward Dog. I smile pressing my ass right up high in the air, tensing my butt cheeks and letting out a massive fart. The sound resonates through the sparse room, bouncing off the walls and reverberating loudly with its harsh echo. The room falls silent as I look up expecting a horrified Tillie but she's smiling and suddenly bursts out laughing as tears glisten in her eye.
That being said, the rest of this story is both sweet and frustrating. There were times I was frustrated with both of them and at times my heart broke for them.
And Nate, Recoil's drummer who I really didn't like much (although to be fair we don't know much about him) and I didn't think I'd like his story that is coming in book 3, but I was wrong! The epilogue was quite intriguing and I will be looking forward to reading his story.
All in all, I have been enjoying this series!
This is second book of the series, and I always liked Ryan in the first book, so I was glad it was his story next. I wasn't disappointed, even though there was times I wanted to smack him silly.
I loved Tillie and Ryan, they both loyal and hard working people.
Tillie is the PR now for Recoil Rock group. She is hard working, but also doesn't really have a social life. She is very hard working and loyal to the band.
Ryan is the guatarist of Recoil. He has a sad past, and he finds it hard to get over it. He doesn't believe in relationships and ever being in love again.
I really enjoyed this story. I couldn't put it down. A very emotional book.
Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.
Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry and get completely enveloped in the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.
