“There is nothing worse than pretending that you don’t care about something, when that is all you can think about.”
Harper Graham wears a mask, and not the pamper kind. She conceals her pain with shoes, shots, and lots of sex. But while her life appears fantastic to most, Harper herself knows that the most important thing in life is not financial stability, but emotional. Having been let down by her absent father for most of her life, Harper chooses to keep the men in her life at arms length. Well, that was until Kyler Morgan.
Kyler Morgan has been successful at nearly everything in his life … nearly. Traveling the country with the band Down Glory Road, Kyler has had time to reflect upon his life and in particular his relationship with feisty, drop-dead gorgeous realtor, Harper. Realizing that she is the woman of his dreams, Kyler resolves to win back Harper, and prove to her that she is, and always has been, enough.
But the path to true love rarely runs smoothly, and when their journey takes a number of twists and turns, will Harper and Kyler manage to hold tight, or fall by the wayside?
Because of Harper Graham’s daddy issues she never let any man into the those high walls that she built around her heart. She instead pours her heart into her career and develops into this very successful, strong-willed, opinionated and stubborn young woman. It’s not that she’s never been interested in men, she loves men plenty but has always been afraid to commit to anyone. No one ever came close until Ky Morgan.
Ky and Harper have known each other for years. They have this long history that started from a friendship but develops into something more. He always wanted her but as always she just can’t open her heart enough to let him in. He is convinced that she is the only one for him but getting her on the same page has been quite the challenge.
“…it’s you and me, Harper. I’m here and I’m not leaving because you think I can’t handle it. That’s just another challenge that I’ll win…”
I adored this book! I found an immediate connection to the characters in the story and was able to relate to Harper’s issues. I thought the characters were all exceptional. I loved how independent and spirited Harper was. She always knew what she wanted in life and never hesitated to go for it.
Ky too was amazing. He wasn’t your typical musician. It seemed that despite the success and the fame he remained grounded and loyal to those closest to him. I loved that he was ready to give it all up for her and his family. He was ever so patient with Harper and would voluntarily forgo the one and only thing that they thought was right between them just to prove a point. No matter how hard she tried – he never gave in to her demands. When he knew he was in the wrong he did everything to make things right again.
The chemistry between the two was outstanding. I loved how such a strong-willed woman gave up all the control to Ky in the bedroom ( or wherever they might be at that given time =). Because of their long history he knew what she needed and when she needed it. Even if he didn’t benefit from these encounters as long as she got , he was just as satisfied. I thought their spontaneity was endearing. It made it so uniquely them.
What I loved most was the couples’ history. This isn’t a story of insta-love but one that starts from a friendship and develops over time. It takes Harper years to admit her feelings but I thought those years were necessary to find themselves and discover how perfect they were for each other.
I enjoyed this fast paced book. I thought it was very straight forward and direct to the point . Even though it was shorter than most novels it didn’t fail to deliver a remarkable romantic story.
“Mmm…you’re coming in.” It was a statement, not a question.
He smiled against my lips. “So bossy. What if I say no?”
“Not a chance in hell, Brandt. You smell good, look good, and I need to get laid.” I grabbed him by the tie and dragged him into my house, kicking the door shut with my heel.
Walking me backwards, he pushed my back against the wall of my entryway. I looked up at him, and marveled at his gorgeous face—he looked like he wanted to devour me. Michael was six foot one, with strong cheekbones and bright blue eyes. His hair was a little grown out, but still shorter than Kyler’s, and a lighter brown. He was wearing a gray, button-down dress shirt, and black slacks. He always dressed nicely because of his job. He helped companies get off the ground and a good presence was necessary. I loved a man in a suit—the total opposite of how Ky dressed everyday, and what he performed in on stage. God, I needed to shake the thoughts of Ky from my head.
Running one of his hands down my hip, he reached to grip my thigh to wrap around him. I moaned as he ground his pelvis into me. I could feel his erection pushing just above where I needed him to be. His other hand held the back of my neck, tilting my head so he could deepen the kiss. As dominant as I could be during my everyday life, I loved a man who took charge in the bedroom—or against a wall as it happened to be right then.
My hands wove into his hair and gripped the short spikes as I moaned into his mouth. He took that as his cue to lift my body up, forcing my other leg up to around his hips. My breath came in short pants as I started to unbutton his shirt, running my hands up and down his chest. His mouth nipped and sucked a trail from my mouth to my chin, and over to my earlobe.
I scratched my nails down his front and he hissed. “Fuck, Harper,” he growled, sliding my dress up so he could hold my bare ass. Who needed underwear anyway?
