Her new boss is sexy, damaged, and insatiable, but Natasha has been a fan since she was a young girl. Conflicted by her emotions, she begins a love/hate relationship with the egotistical rock star.Alex’s intentions toward her are clear from the moment they meet, but Natasha isn’t about to run from one emotionless connection to another. She is determined to keep her distance from her childhood crush, by any means necessary. When lust begins to cloud her mind, however, she becomes hell bent on protecting her heart. What good could ever come out of falling for a rock star, anyway?

EXCERPT

“You’re pretty good at handling the media,” Alex mused once we’d taken our seats inside the cinema. “You sure know how to put them in their place. I think that was the most effortless set of interviews I’ve ever had.” 
“I have a love, hate relationship with them. I don’t mind being abrupt when they overstep their mark.” 
“That’s a little like us.” I had to giggle at that. “You look really beautiful tonight, Nat.” 
“Maybe you should keep your eyes on the stage instead of on me.” I smirked, brushing of his comment while we watched the director and main leads take the stage. I tried to collect my thoughts, but Alex Harbour had just called me beautiful. 
So many people acknowledged Alex as they wandered past us. Some stopped to congratulate him on the song for the soundtrack. I, myself, was disappointed with the song. It had a more pop feel than rock. To me, it was like he’d sold out on this track. It wasn’t the real him. 
My mouth fell open when Adam Rider came over and had a quick chat with us. He was ‘the’ Hollywood actor at the moment, and gazing up at him, I could see why. The man was almost as sexy as Alex, with his dark, almost black hair, deep chocolate eyes and sexy irish accent. He wore a tux just as well, too. 
“When are you going to take that jump into the film industry, Alex?” he asked, darting his eyes toward me. 
“That’s never going to happen, Adam. Music is my love. We’ve had this conversation before.” 
“And who is this? I don’t think we’ve been introduced.” Adam held my gaze, the same way Alex did the first time I met him. Celebrities of their caliber always had that effect on me, knocking me breathless with their beauty. It was a surreal moment to realize they were real people, not just a perfect face in a magazine or on TV. 
“I…I…I’m Natasha White,” I stuttered, taking his hand when he offered it to me. 
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Natasha,” he cooed, kissing the back of my hand. Hollywood actors…were they all this smooth? “I’m not used to seeing Alex with such a sophisticated woman.” Now I was blushing. 
“Natasha is my new personal assistant.” Alex’s tone was sharp as he shot daggers at Adam. “You better take your seat, Adam. It looks like they’re going to start.” 
“I need to find my date anyway. Good talking with you, Alex. Natasha.” Gracefully, he disappeared into the crowd in search of his seat. 
“Wow,” I gasped, holding my chest. “I just met Adam Rider.” 
“Are you a fan of his?” Alex didn’t seem that interested in my answer. He was busy playing with the arm of his chair. 
“Who isn’t a fan of his? I heard he turned down the lead role in this film we’re seeing tonight.” 
“I wouldn’t know, but I’m not sure Westerns are his thing anyway.” 
“Do you see him a lot? Are you good friends with him?” 
“Straight Lace, do you have a crush on Mr. Hollywood? I do know him pretty well. We jam together from time to time.” He couldn’t hide his smirk. “Most actors are womanizers, though, and Adam is no different. I wouldn’t get mixed up with him.” 
“I’ve heard that about rock stars, too,” I quipped. “And you definitely live up to that.” 
“Maybe you need to find a more reliable source. You really don’t know me well enough to make that judgement yet.”

EXCERPT

Pete stripped down to boxers and donned his running shorts. Not bothering with a shirt, he headed for the beach. There was no way he could get to sleep after his steamy encounter with Jo Parker. Running would clear his mind and calm his body. 
He pulled an elastic with his house key on it over his wrist and left. As he walked down the path to the sand, he thought about Jo. Christ, I can’t stop thinking about her! Chilled by the night air, he started to run. He’d known she was sexy, but the way she had surrendered in his arms, well, surprised wasn’t the word. He never thought she’d fall without a major seduction. Flowers, candy, dinners out—now he could forget that. Next date would end in his bed. 
Pete could hardly wait. Searching his memory, he couldn’t remember when he had been so turned on so quickly. She’d had him when she’d walked in wearing that sweater. Shit, I could barely keep my eyes or hands off her breasts. Lust had boiled up in his veins when she’d insisted on seeing his bedroom. Standing there with the sea on one side and alluring Jo Parker on the other, a foot from his bed, he could hardly control himself or ignore the protests from his dick.

CHARACTER BIOS

PETE SEBASTIAN - Winning the Super Bowl is just the beginning for Coach Bass, as his team calls him. He walks on water, until his world gets turned upside down by a feisty female. When the new V.P. of Publicity turns out to be a gorgeous blonde, Pete is stopped in his tracks.
Raising twin daughters alone after his wife took a powder, Pete has been too busy to be lonely. But now that his girls are off to college, loneliness has become his constant companion. Bed partners are easy to find, but the right woman, one who loves football almost as much as she loves him isn’t easy. So far, he has come up empty.
With a beautiful woman in the office next door, Pete can hardly concentrate on preparing for training camp. All he wants to do is kiss Jo Parker, but she’s tucked away behind a professional demeanor and not going to play his game.
Never one to throw in the towel, Pete has a strategy to win this woman who keeps one step ahead of him. Can the charming, sexy coach win the affections of the elusive Ms. Parker? Or his he destined to continue on playing a solo game?
JO PARKER - Jo Parker is a woman who knows what she wants, right? She thinks she does. A successful woman in the man’s world of NFL front office, Jo has worked hard and taken lots of guff to rise to the level of vice president of publicity.
Her new job at The Connecticut Kings presents a challenge. Not only does she have to clean up the reputation of a team that fired two players for domestic violence, but she has to resist the practically irresistible charms of the coach, Pete Sebastian.
With her pug, Daisy, tucked under her arm, Jo takes Monroe and the Kings by storm. She rolls in, determined to send the players to anger management, to avoid further bad behavior. But they roadblock her at every step. And leading the resistance is the devastatingly handsome, Coach Bass.
Chemistry and mutual attraction short-circuit Ms. Parker’s plans. She finds herself in unfamiliar waters, falling in love. But love is not in her plans. She doesn’t believe in Prince Charming and she’s not about to give up her independence for a roll in the hay.
But loneliness and a hunger for love, born from a sterile childhood, draw her to the warmth and charm of Pete Sebastian. Will she be able to control her emotions, fight through their mutual attraction to focus on the job and only the job?

4 Stars

The story of Lukas and Ivy.
Lukas is a tattoo artist and plays a little in a family rock band.
Ivy is a HR professional, married, with two kids when the story begins.
I was shocked from the very first chapter.  We are listening to a phone call, but all is not what it seems!  Ivy's husband has been cheating on her for a year!  I wanted to pummel that jerk with a baseball bat!
Ivy's friend - which turns out to be kind of a jerk too - convinces her that change is good.  She gives Ivy a gift certificate for a free tattoo.  Well, wouldn't you know the tattoo artist is a hottie (Lukas)!  When they first meet, sparks fly.
But…..Ivy is older than him by quite a bit, she's just getting out of a bad marriage, and she has kids. All of which she thinks Lukas is probably not ready for.
Lukas is not about to give up though.  He is relentless, but not in a stalker-type of way.  He really was too good to be true, but I guess that's the stuff book boyfriends are made of. ;)
This story is told in alternating first person from Lukas and Ivy.
I enjoyed the way the author wove the tale, and you could definitely feel the love grow between the two.  It would be hard not to fall for a man like Lukas.
This is the first book in the series I have read (it is book 3), but I was not lost even once.  It truly is a standalone.
One thing I did not enjoy - the Katie part. *sigh*
I also wanted to punch Ivy's daughter Macy in the face.  That was awful!
The thing that stops me from giving this a 5 star is the extremely abrupt end of the last chapter which was basically a cliff-hanger sort, then goes in to the Epilogue.  Now, we DO get a very tiny idea of what happened in between, but as much detail as there was in the rest of the book, I felt as though I was cheated out of this important part.

Romance Readers received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.
My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, was published in September of 2014 and book 2, Vandal, was published in February 2015 with several more of this series planned throughout 2015.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
