Manwhore. Adrenaline junkie. Lead singer of ContraBand. What you see is what you get. I make no apologies for my actions, and by now no one expects any from me. I live my life the way I want and as long as it pushes the demons back, then I’m solid. I’ve never needed a chick for more than a good lay. Why would I need just one when I can have a different one every night?
Until she walks into my world.
Mouthy. Perfectionist. Princeton student. Chemistry major. Yes, that pretty much describes me. Oh, and virgin. But I’m only nineteen, and have more important things to concern myself with. What really matters is finishing my degree and getting a good job. I’ve worked hard for what I want, and do what’s expected of me. I don’t need anyone to get in my way.
Until he opens up my world.
“The world tilted. My body ached and pleaded and retreated and demanded and so many things all at once that my thoughts, feelings, senses mingled together into an indescribable sensation. A bit like a reaching the top of a rollercoaster right before you plummet to your death and a bit like the first time I’d gotten tipsy and still more like riding with the top down in the convertible. It was all those things and none of those things and so much more that I could never even think of.”
I don’t think I have to write anything else that is exactly what I felt reading this book. It was my HOLY GOD I LOVE her even more book!! Seriously, not that it was possible but I think I just made a new category for her in my kindle. I thought I was in love with the Avoiding Series and then I read Off the Record and said, “Oh she will never get me to like anything more than this!” Well, she did and his name is Grant and ….
”I kind of want my virginity back so I can lose it to him.”
This was what I love to read, Rock star, a man whore, and everything else that comes with that combination!! YAY, my kindle was almost in tears with excitement!!! Aribel is not your typical girly girl falls at the feet of the rock star. Nope, KA didn’t do that. Instead she gave us, a girl that was more into her grades and where she was going then sitting in a bar following bands. She didn’t care that her boyfriend broke up with her. She doesn’t hold back and says what she is feeling. She is a girl without a filter and I LOVED HER (even if she was a virgin)!!! I loved her and I hope my daughter turns into her!
When Aribel meets Grant in a bar, I was already in love! Honestly I was a groupie and all he said was Darlin’!
“Grant McDermott is the lead singer of ContraBand,” Cheyenne filled in with an eye roll. “He’s practically the whole reason we show up. I can just see his fingers playing across that guitar and imagine what they would do to my body.”
Oh I was imagining things and wishing for things and what was I talking about. Oh so Aribel and him meet and instantly there is an attraction there. However Aribel isn’t one to just fall for him as I said, she doesn’t take his crap, and she could careless that girls are lining up to get his attention, she doesn’t want it!!
“So Aribel you don’t like darlin’?”
“I might like it if you happened to be from a fifties western movie,” I said.
Grant cracked a smile. “Not a western, darlin’. Try southern gentlemen. Rhett Butler.”
“Are you going to try to peddle Gone with the Wind to me? No really,” I said, turning back to Grant, “have you read anything longer than a Penthouse magazine?”
“There are articles in Penthouse?” Grant asked.
As you can see there was no insta love happening and I think that’s what I love about KA’s writing. And just like all KA books, these two have crazy off the charts chemistry but she gave this an old school innocent romance. Even though this is a story that has been told before, you know, Rock star meets virgin KA put her spin on it to give it a breath of fresh air and just like everything she writes she made sure to include the drama that I LOVE!! These two can fight like no other couple I have ever seen, and she makes it work and of course she leaves you wanting more!!
“Like an addict, I needed more and more…”
PLEASE KA LINDE PLEASE CAN I HAVE ANOTHER BOOK APPEAR IN MY KINDLE ASAP!!!!
I sat up, reached out, and touched his jeans hesitantly. “I thought, um…that is, if you want…maybe we could try something else.”
Grant’s eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. “What do you have in mind?”
I turned crimson from head to toe. My hand slid up his leg, and over his dick. He looked at me like I’d just offered him the world. Maybe I had?
“Yes, whatever you want, yes.”
I laughed lightly. He was so eager, and I was so hesitant. What a pair.
As if seeing my uncertainty, he stood and stripped out of his jeans and the navy blue boxer briefs that apparently had held him in very tightly. My eyes bugged, and I tried to hide that fact. He was tall, and the correlation between that and size meant something…but damn.
He extended his hand to me and then scooted me off the bed. His lips found mine softly. “Calm down.”
He placed my hand on his dick, and with a breath, I started gliding it up and down the length of him. A groan escaped him at my touch. I couldn’t keep a smile from tugging on my lips.
“Like this,” he whispered, his fingers tightening around my small hand.
I gripped him harder and kept pumping. As I watched him, I couldn’t help licking my lips. He was so unabashedly sexual.
Grant ran a finger against my bottom lip. “You keep licking those lips, Ari, and I’m going to want them around my cock.”
I took a deep breath and then sank to my knees. I thought he stopped breathing.
