Star-crossed lovers...
Deep among the Jeffrey Pines of Lake Tahoe, Isabelle Martin and Roman Stone find comfort in each other at a summer camp for musically gifted teens where their love grows stronger every year. But they couldn’t be more different. She’s an orphan from the West Coast running with the wild crowd, and he’s a rich kid from New York hiding the scars of an abusive home. When their worlds finally collide, the future they planned comes crashing down around them and Belle is forced to cut Roman from her life without any explanation.
Five years later...
Roman’s on top of the world. His successful rock band is preparing for their first headlining tour, but when he unexpectedly runs into Belle, old feelings for her come rushing back, and his new found bravado fails him.
Belle has learned that some things in life have the power to break your spirit, and trying to forget Roman has made her bitter—she’s merely a waitress headlining a bar-band, and he’s had everything handed to him on a silver platter. Seeing him again makes her question whether time can mend a broken heart.
Their struggles brought them together, and their differences tore them apart, but now that they’re together again, can they repair the broken pieces and get a second chance at love?

EXCERPT:

When she spun around to look at me, arms crossed over her already large breasts, I was so nervous that I feared I’d throw up all over her. Her gaze slipped downward, appearing humored by my $10 sundress. Or maybe she was amused by my flat chest.
Part of me wanted to bolt from there and run after my aunt. But the stubborn side of me remained rooted in place, matching the girl’s calloused smile. Looking into her heavily made-up eyes, I was slightly embarrassed that I didn’t even own mascara.
“Are you sure you’re in the right place?” she asked with narrowed eyes. “I would think the entrance for help would be out back somewhere."
“I’m here to sing, same as you,” I replied, crossing my arms over my stomach. Thankfully, I sounded a lot braver than I felt.
She pressed a manicured hand to her lips. “Oh, my god! You must be one of those welfare cases, here on a free ride! Am I right?"
“Stop being a bitch, Brooke,” a tenor voice snapped behind me.
A lanky boy with sandy colored hair and a wide nose appeared at her side, only slightly taller than either one of us. Though he had a nerdy presence and appeared awkward, as if he had yet to grow into his features, it was glaringly obvious he came from money like the other kids. Even his neatly trimmed haircut looked expensive. He was dressed in khaki pants and a sea green polo shirt the same cool tone as his eyes. They were the prettiest eyes I’d ever seen, surrounded by thick lashes and peppered with a little cluster of golden specks that reminded me of the kind of beautifully starry nights I saw the time my dad took us camping in the Sequoia National Park.
And those mesmerizing eyes were locked on me.
A weird little flush crept over my skin.
“She’s just pissed her parents shipped her out here for another summer because she hates singing,” he told me as his lips pressed into a friendly smile. “I’m Roman, and this is Brooke. We’re from New York. How ‘bout you?"
“Isabelle,” I mumbled in reply. It was obvious he was friends with the bitchy girl the way he draped his arm over the edge of her shoulder. At the time, I really didn’t want anything to do with him.
“Isabelle, from…” He cocked his head, waiting for me to answer.
“Down by Fresno."
The friendly smile grew. “A California girl. Is this your first time here?"
Brooke laughed with an annoyingly high cackle. I knew then and there she was a first soprano. I also decided that I hated her. “Obviously. Look at her, Roman. She’s as scared as one of those stray kittens you can only get rid of by drowning."
For a split second, Roman’s eyes warmed with sympathy before he reeled on her. “You know, Brooke, just because my father works for yours doesn’t mean I have to kiss your ass all the time. You could be nice for once in your life."
“Oh, come on.” She rolled her eyes. “Like you really expect me to be friends with this girl? She doesn’t belong here."
Roman flashed me another sympathetic look—one that took my breath away. In that moment I saw the type of worldly kindness you didn’t normally see in kids our age, like he knew of my struggles.
“I’ll catch up with you later, Isabelle.” His gentle smile did nothing to erase the pain in his eyes.

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

Young love rises to epic proportions in this emotionally intense romance between two people from opposite sides of the tracks.  As readers become more captivated by their unforgettable romance outside influences, distance, and self-perceptions all weigh on them to pull them apart in a heartbreaking and hard-fought journey to HEA.  By the turn of the final page readers will be left exhausted but immensely satisfied by the journey undertaken and the victory of love over hate that had me cheering.

Roman Stone was born into a family of wealth that hid the ugliness of his father's alcoholism and abuse behind his charming smile and good looks.  He tried to be the perfect son by excelling at sports and school, but it's music in which he really shined and which had him connecting with the new girl at music camp.  Unlike many in his social circle he never looked down on the young girl attending music camp on a scholarship and from their first meeting he became Isabelle Martin's protector.  Each summer saw their relationship becoming more intense, and more confusing, as they slowly transitioned from friends to lovers in scenes that were fumbling but endearing.  As Roman's life took darker turns of abuse and depression, Isabelle became the lone bright spot and it's clear he'd do anything to keep her in his life.  His father's rage, her low self-esteem, and his own rash judgments led to years of separation that had him hitting rock bottom personally, but gave him lots of emotional fodder to take him to the top of the music charts.  On the eve of his band's first headlining tour they're reunited with all the love, conflicts, and fears still present.  With weeks being devoted to getting to know each other as adults, with hard truths coming to light, their HEA will be put in doubt until the very end.  Roman's the quintessential book boyfriend because of his sweet words and deeds.  He wore his heart on his sleeve and never hid his feelings for Belle once he claimed her. His youth was one of vicious physical abuse and undermining by his father's mockery of his musical talent which tore at my heart.  He saw a kindred spirit in Belle's pain and swore to protect her tender heart from that day forward.  They were each other's first in so many ways and it made for an enduring connection between them.  The years apart didn't diminish that either and as adults their connection became even more erotically-charged and had me rooting for them even more.

Isabelle was once a happy girl, even though her family struggled financially. Her parent's deaths though set her on a path of darkness and guilt that had her closed off and scared to ever show love towards another.  Music gave her joy and the chance to go to music camp changed her life irrevocably the moment she met Roman.  He was protective and made her feel important.  He helped her find acceptance and encouraged her talent.  They became each other's everything in a romance that started out sweet and awkward and became more assured and scorching through the years.  Their years apart broke her down, took her to a very dark place, and it left her feeling dirty and doubtful of her chances for HEA.  The things she went through, the deception of those who pretended to care for her, and the ultimate hurt that left her with a scar on her neck were particularly heartbreaking.  She was once a sweet and timid girl but as a woman she's a badass.  She dresses in clothes that no longer hide her and her words are snarky and brash.  She's just as quick to assume the worst though, which was frustrating at times.  It felt as if she was purposely sabotaging things between her and Roman out of fear and self-doubts and I was happy Roman didn't let her get away with it.

This was a powerful read that had me invested from the very start.  Roman and Belle are immensely appealing in their realism and seeing their romance evolve had me rooting for them as it became abundantly clear how perfect they are for each other.  Their young love was sweet and sentimental and pulled at my heartstrings.  As adults it was scorching and cleansing after surviving all the pain of their youth.  The abuse they suffered was gut-wrenching and its depiction wasn't sugarcoated, which made their survival of it even more empowering.  The music world is important to both of them, as both have a commanding presence in it, and readers easily get caught up in this seductive world with its all glitz and glamour.  I enjoyed the glimpses of Roman's bandmates as they're a likable and supportive group of guys.  I especially liked Reggie as he's like a brother to Roman and wholeheartedly embraces Belle from the start which made me like him all the more.  I'd definitely love to see more of these sexy rockstars as it would be a great excuse to see more of Roman and Belle in the future.  Though some of the twists in this story, especially Brooke's machinations, were predictable it didn't diminish the emotional impact of this tale.  These characters were survivors.  Their love kept them going, got them through their dark days, and in the end the power of love triumphed.  It's the reason we read romance and though I was emotionally exhausted by the end I was also immensely satisfied and look forward to where Ms. Ann takes us next!

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.
Veterinarian, Rae Evans expects to attend a dreadful ten-year high school reunion. Instead, she’s confronted by a past she’s never gotten over. The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.
Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.
Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart. But Rae’s not that young girl who watched her high school sweetheart race off to become famous. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and realizes when a man needs her. She just has to decide if she should put the past on repeat, or walk away from it forever.

EXCERPT:

The band played the perfect song. Something a little sexy and slow, keeping her hips swaying perfectly with his. He did nothing to shield his erection, but one look into her eyes told him that was all right. With her breasts pressed against his chest, her cheeks a little pink now, he noticed the heat in the depths of her gaze. He’d recognize it anywhere. That fire felt like it belonged to him—always had, always would. Yet in the past, she’d shy away from that desire. Now, he noted how she firmly held his gaze, telling him she wasn’t the young lover he once had.
“How long are you staying in town?” she asked, in an obvious attempt to divert their attention away from his cock.
“Just tonight.” He stroked his thumb over the back of her hand, keeping her as close as he could, inhaling her flowery scent that had faded from his memory. “I fly out bright and early in the morning."
“Only tonight?” She shot him a questioning glance. “You came all the way here from New York just for the reunion?"
“You seem surprised."
She shrugged, seemingly unaffected when another couple bumped into her, her interest obviously centered on him. “Seems like a long way to come for only a few hours."
A very good point, indeed. “Well, you see, that brings us to my story.” He sent her out, twirling her around before bringing her in close again and returning the smile she gave him. “But I think we need to go back even further for you to truly understand."
“Go on,” she said, watching him closely.
He paused, collecting his thoughts, then he began. “You’ll never hear me complain about my life. I have far more than I probably deserve."
“That’s a good thing,” she said firmly, even as a playful grin teased her lips. “You have a pretty amazing life, and you’d better not complain to me about all the fabulous trips you get to take around the world, or you might lose a tooth."
He chuckled but leaned in, calling her out. “And how do you know so much about my life? Reading up on me?"
“A little,” she admitted.
That’s what he liked most about Rae. She was honest, through and through. The fact that she followed his life could bite him in the ass later, but at this point, there was no going back, so he pushed the conversation along. “So, then you know that I have a very good life. I travel. I stay in fancy hotels. I eat at amazing restaurants. I never have to lift a finger. I have everything that anyone should want."
Her eyes searched his. “But it’s not the life you want?"
Of course, she caught on. He didn’t expect otherwise. That’s why he’d come to the reunion—to be with someone who truly knew him. “It’s not that I don’t want the life I live,” he explained gently. “It’s that something is missing. Something very important."
“Which is?"
“The guy I used to be."
She began nibbling her lip like she used to do in high school when she became confused. “What do you mean?"
“I can have anything I want, Rae. There is nothing that’s not available to me.” He slid his hand along her spine, pulling her in closer, leaving no room between them. “But the guy I was when we were together…I don’t know him anymore."
Her eyes softened, and her voice grew quiet. “That’s really kinda sad, Travis."
“It is what it is.” He shrugged, not wanting to get stuck on the things he couldn’t change. “My manager told me that I’d been invited to the reunion and saw it as a business opportunity. But I saw it as a personal one."
The song shifted to something faster, and the crowd began to fill the dance floor, bumping into his back. He refused to let her go, holding her tightly against him. “Do you want to know the real reason I came to the reunion tonight?"
“Yes,” she said, a little breathlessly.
“I came to relive the past, Rae.” He released her hand, wrapping his other arm around her and bringing his mouth close to hers. “That’s the only reason I’m here. I want to remember what it’s like to be with a woman who knows the real me.” He was encouraged by her shiver. An involuntary movement that spoke of her willingness to give him all that he wanted and more.
Hot and hard, he dropped his head into her neck, inhaled the subtle hints of her flowery perfume, and said into her ear, “We have a chance that many people don’t get. To go back and feel what we felt before.” He dragged his nose across her neck in the way he knew she liked, feeling her quiver under his hands. “Tomorrow, our lives will return to normal. Nothing will have changed. You’ll live here, entirely focused on your clinic and your life, and I’ll live mine in New York. Tonight’s our one free pass to dip into the past, and I want to take it. Because tonight, Rae”—he brushed his lips across her neck, and a soft moan escaped her mouth as he murmured—“I want one more taste of you."
She gasped and stepped back, blinking rapidly. “I…sorry, excuse me. I need to get some air.” Then those pretty pink cheeks and wide, excited eyes were gone, her dress trailing behind her as she ran for the door.
Travis shoved his hands into the pockets of his suit and grinned. He didn’t mind hunting her, it sweetened his reward.

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

Readers looking for a bit of afternoon delight will get just that with this tale of former high school loves who let each other go in pursuit of their dreams. Though they both found success, one as a rock star and the other as a veterinarian, they haven't found fulfillment in their personal lives and it's clear they've both been wondering what-if.  When a high school reunion gives them that opportunity sparks will fly as old feelings come rushing back to the surface in this sweet and sentimental story.

Travis and Rae were once each other's world until they parted company to pursue their individual dreams.  Scenes from their past are seamlessly woven into a narrative that finds them reuniting for a whirlwind re-connection that's erotic yet sentimental.  While Travis's life seems to be perfect with a music career that has him adored by all it's also left him feeling lost and alone.  Rae was once his muse and the years without her have felt hollow, in front of thousands he still feels alone.  His career has begun to feel like a job, full of obligations that he's beginning to resent.  He's returned home though to right a wrong and ask her the question that he should have long ago.  Travis is a sexy rock star who wears his heart on his sleeve.  He left a boy and returned a man, ready to claim her after wrapping her up in a sensual haze that ends before it's barely begun.

Rae's always been the more serious of the two, more focused and willing to make the hard choices.  Where Travis sees compromise, she sees heartbreak.  After sending him away all those years ago she quickly realized the mistake she made, keeping track of his life and dreaming of what could have been.  Seeing his success convinced here that she made the right choice despite it being a lie.  When Travis returns home she discovers their separation broke him just as much as it did her and for the short time they have together she'll do all she can to help him find his heart and soul again despite the heartbreak it might cause her once again.  Their time together is combustible and full of decadent temptations that she finds herself getting addicted to.  When their time is up she'll be left deciding what truly defines happiness and satisfaction in an ending full of introspection and lessons learned.

This is a quick read full of sensuality and sentimentality in the heartwarming reunion between two people meant to be together.  Their erotic encounters were nicely paced and balanced with sweet and nostalgic moments that had me rooting for them.  Interspersed with their romance were glimpses of other romances from other books in this series that have me wanting to read them next.  On a whole, while the premise is familiar, there's comfort to be found in that and in this tale full of charm with an ending that will pull at your heartstrings.

My rating for this is B+
