Part One ~ Unexpected

~Synopsis~

Blair is looking for an escape.
West is looking for a connection.
One down and out woman. One isolated rock star. Life at the top is lonely, but so is life at the bottom.
Blair is just looking for someone to take the edge off her crappy life. Dull the pain, breathe a little life into her neglected body. A chance meeting at a bar leads to a night of passion. No names, no personal details. Just sex.
Well, it wasn't personal until she sees the guy standing on a stage ten meters in front of her. How the hell didn't she realize that the guy who blew her mind is the guitarist out of that dirty rock'n'roll band, Affliction? And why is he chasing her down the street? And how does he know her name?
Sometimes you find the things you didn't even know you were looking for in the most unexpected places.

He kissed me like I was his lifeline and all it did was scare the hell out of me.
You won't regret it,” he whispered against my mouth, before kissing me again.
I didn't know what it was he was looking for, but whatever it was, he obviously thought I was it. Either he was fucking insane or I was blind.



Part Two ~ Unexplainable

~Synopsis~

Blair thought she would never get over her broken past.
West thought no one could ever see past his epic mistakes.
For the first time Blair's given a piece of herself away, picks herself off the ground and moves forward. There's a light at the end of the tunnel and it has bad boy rockstar written all over it. That's something she can work for. Something that makes her believe again.
But West is a part of rock'n'roll band, Affliction. Taking Blair on tour was his idea of heaven, but his time is in high demand and trying to be with her isn't working out as well as he'd hoped.
For Blair, being on the road with one of the most notorious bands in rock is a new kind of messed up. One she's not sure is for her…even with West in her bed.
Jake West has kickstarted her heart, but who will be the one to smash it apart?
Or will their unexplainable attraction be strong enough to save them both?

I don't know if I can handle your life. I was nothing. I was nobody. Everyone wants you. I'm afraid I'm not enough for all of this.”
I know it's hard. We're both learning, but we need to do it together.”
“How can you be so calm about this?”
Fuck, I'm freaking out just as much as you are, beautiful.”
“I don't believe you.”
“I want you to be mine. Whatever it takes.”



Part Three ~ Unintended

~Synopsis~

Blair believes she's broken beyond repair.
West believes he's beyond redemption.
It doesn't stop either of them from fighting for what they want. Even if they have to go down kicking and screaming to get it.
But there's one final hurdle before the finish line. West hasn't been entirely honest and when the past finally comes back to bite him in the ass, it's either going to be rainbows and fluffy kittens or total annihilation. If he wants to win Blair's love, he has to come clean. Not just to her…but the entire world.
All the biggest mistakes are unintended, but this time it might ruin them forever.

My body cared about him, but my heart wanted to bitch slap him from here into next year. What use was caring for someone if you couldn't trust them? I didn't want mindless fucking anymore. I didn't want mindless anything. I wanted to fill my heart up with someone and them to fill theirs with me in return, but all I seemed to get was a hollow ache.



5- the dark side of Rock Fame- Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

this unexplainable thing between West and I was worth the risk. Worth the fucking assholes printing stupid shit about us in the papers and hounding us for photos. Worth the groupies trying to grab his cock in front of me. It was worth it, because at the end of the day, West was mine and I was his.

It was only supposed to be a one-night stand.
She was only looking for an escape from her crap life, a way to numb the pain.
He was looking for a connection, for someone to see past who he was.
But they both got way more than they bargained for as two damaged people find the one other person to make them feel for the first time. But a love like theirs comes at a price; the road is far from easy as one battles their urge to run and the other replaces one addiction for another, media vultures are all up in their business, groupies are constantly throwing themselves between them and those they thought they could trust go out of their way to keep them apart. With everything working against them, how will they ever find the happy ending they both so desperately need?

I don't know what it fucking was last night, but you brought me back to life.”
What the fuck? How could I bring someone back to life? Plain, nothing, nobody Blaire Hayden? This guy was in a fucking hot as hell rock band with the world at his feet and he wanted me? Was he fucking high?

Now this is exactly how I like my romances ~ gritty, raw, dirty, damaged, foul and slightly screwed up. From start to finish these two had my complete attention. West broke my heart with his desperate need to just connect with someone, to be seen as more than just a rock star that everyone wants a piece of. Blaire was... well she could be a pain in the ass. She did grab a hold of a piece of my heart, and I did feel for her-she did have some crap luck in life, but boy did that girl frustrate the shit outta me at times. I did however love her mouth, I though I cussed like a sailor but she put me to shame. I'm glad that I came across this series in trilogy form, with the way the books left off -especially part two, I think I would have gone completely crazy waiting for the next part. Being able to read them back to back was pretty damn addicting; lots of drama, a whole lotta crazy-hott-angry sexy, plenty of angst and tears as well as some heartbreak and redemption. It was a helluva journey, one I would recommend to anyone who likes a little bit of pain with their romance, one that landed Amity Cross firmly on my One-Click-Addiction List and I cannot wait to see what she brings us next.

I'd been fighting it every step of the way, afraid I'd lose what little of myself I had, but I couldn't deny it anymore.
I'd fallen completely and utterly for Jake fucking West. This was no longer just about sex.
