Riley and her coworker Jen stumbled upon a sign advertising a dive bar called the Wallabee Pub. A band announced as the Cocks was playing. Everyone was going MAD! clothes were flying, people were screaming and fights were started.

Riley was a business professional during the week but had a wild side on the weekends. Her Achilles heel, bad boys. So, when she heard the singers seductive voice she had to get a peek at the performer. When he came into view he noticed her too,made his way to her and whispered for her meet him backstage.

After a not so easy venture she made it backstage. However, when she learned what a jerk he was she decided to teach him an unforgettable lesson, never expecting to see him again.

Riley woke up the next morning with a hangover and an email from her boss informing her of an assignment, tour accountant for a band. While going over the paperwork the only clue as to the name of the band is HC.

The first day on the job she asked for bills and receipts and was advised to wait for Jax. When Riley and Jax recognized each other from that Saturday at the Wallabee they were both shocked.

Jax is a sexy hot rock star, women love him their boyfriends want to kick his ass.

Riley laid all the cards out on the table informing Jax she would not be mixing business with pleasure. What Jax heard is challenge accepted.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! This book was packed with laugh out load moments, smart ass banter, manipulation, romance, and an intense ending with a cliffhanger. This is the first book I have ever read from Ms. West and I look forward to reading more from her in the future!

Isn't She Lovely By Lauren Layne

Hello Everyone, I hope you had a marvelous Labor Day! Goodbye August Hello September! So, lets kick this month off right!

Isn't She Lovely by Lauren Layne

When Stephanie and Ethan first bumped into each other they did not exactly hit it off. Unless you count trading jabs of sarcasm and stereotypes. So, when they find out they are not only in the same film class but are paired up to work on an assignment together  the crazy train is set in motion.

Stephanie Kendrick is intelligent yet she is the  keep to yourself type who would rather hide in corners than be the life of the party. She avoids her family like the plague so much so that she signed up for a summer film class and moved in with her cheating ex.

Ethan Price is the boy who has his it all including his future planned out from A-Z, has decided to take a break from family expectations and take a summer course.

When Stephanie and Ethan end up playing I will scratch your back if you scratch mine the claws come out. However, how deep will they go and when all is said and done what will remain in the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The chemistry between these two was perfect. I laughed so hard at their banter, felt compassion towards their situations and pulling for opposites to attract.


Best Wishes Always,

Wicked Woman
