For twenty-year-old Jemma, rules are not meant to be broken…even if she’s the one who created them. Friendships have boundaries, relationships mean trouble, and don’t even get her started on sex. Haunted by the death of her mother and her father’s abandonment, Jemma finds herself hungry for something meaningful and permanent, but is afraid of what may happen if she pursues it.
Jordan Capshaw can’t fight his addiction. Not even if it will cost him his career…
When Jemma finds Jordan drunk and barefoot in the street, she convinces him to get in her car. Aside from the fact he’s the lead singer of her favorite band and pretty much the rock star of her dreams, she quickly realizes his addiction is a monster neither of them can control.
Who knew choosing between a rock star and a fireman could be so difficult?
Emotions run high as Jemma soon finds herself caught between the troubled rock star and her growing affections for Vic Harper, a swoon-worthy firefighter from her past. But when her grandmother passes away, leaving her with no other family, Jemma’s world falls apart.
To save herself from further heartbreak, she risks it all by breaking her own rules, and putting her heart on the line.
After all, the heart just might be the biggest rule breaker of them all…
I don't read many love triangle romances, but when B.K. offered an ARC in exchange for an honest review, I decided to give this one a shot. The summary intrigued me! I wasn't disappointed.
The author's writing drew me in from page one. Jemma was such a believable character, and I absolutely adored her granny. I vacillated between wanting to strangle Jordan and wanting to hug him. He's such a difficult character with his addictions and poor-me attitude, but I really enjoyed reading about him. I have such a huge soft spot for the troubled bad-boys. They're so much more realistic to me than the manwhore bad-boys.
I loved how Jemma didn't take any crap from him! From the word go, she stood up for herself and didn't let him get away with anything. She's strong, compassionate, and a really great character.
I enjoyed Vic, but I didn't *love* him. That has more to do with my day job than anything the author did wrong. When firefighters are your coworkers, a little of the mystique wears off. :)
I won't spoil the book for you by telling you who Jemma ultimately chooses, but I will say I cannot wait for the second book!
If you're down for a good love triangle and a few tears, this one is for you.
