He’s on his way to having it all… but the only thing he wants is her.

Cole Kennrick’s career is soaring as the lead singer of indie-rock band Ink & Iron. He’s been through it all: sex, drugs and rock and roll, overindulging until he lost the only thing that mattered. Now he’s pulled his life together and left his addictions behind—except for one: his ex-wife, Janie.

Janie’s kept tabs on the one man she’s ever truly loved, the one she had to leave in order to save herself. She’s dreamed of the sexy inked rocker over the years, fantasized about the sensual and often kinky things they once did together, exploring their darkest desires. But Janie knows more than most that a rock star can never be more than a fantasy. When she runs into Cole again, can he convince her that what they have is real, and true love never dies?

I enjoyed this book. It was a second chance at love romance that pulled me into the story right from the beginning.

While this book was a light read for me, it covered some serious material that really packed an emotional punch. Cole Kennrick, bad boy rock and roller, is back to claim the woman he lost but never stopped loving. It’s been years since his addictive lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock and roll ultimately cost him his marriage to Janie, the love of his life. Now it’s six years clean and sober and Cole wants another chance. Janie still loves Cole, but she is afraid to trust him again. Their road back to happiness is a bumpy and sometimes painful one that made this such a good read.

It was a romantic story that flirted with a light BDSM element. While it had a lot of steamy sex scenes, the author kept them secondary to the plot which was about getting love right the second time around. It’s about redemption and learning to trust again. Love and trust can be hard for any couple, but these two had years heartache and loss to overcome. Then came the inevitable train wreck that had me majorly ticked at Janie for a while.

This book was well written and had an easy flow. It was short, but had very charasmatic characters that made up for the length of the story. Yes, I fell hard for Cole. The bad boys get to me every time, and since there is always one character that captures my heart, this time it was Cole. It was also an emotional read as Cole and Janie had a reckoning of sorts.

All in all, I liked this book. It was a good read for this happy reader.
