She needs to be good.
Five years ago, Kit Landry was homeless and alone at sixteen. Determined to ditch her crappy life, she moved to Nashville with only $200, her guitar, and a notebook full of songs. She hit it big as America’s country sweetheart, but a year of living like a rock star plus a stint in rehab has killed any good will she had with her label. The suits have ordered Kit to shape up or ship out of the limelight. The last thing she needs is a hot, sexy distraction with a sinful smile.
He doesn’t know the meaning of the word.
Max Butler is as far from a celebrity as you can get and he likes it that way. A Nashville firefighter, he’s living the single life with a revolving door of parties, friends, and a different woman in his bed every night. When his normal life suddenly collides with the girl on his favorite Rolling Stone cover, he sees the perfect chance to fulfill his ultimate fantasy and see just how bad Kit can be.
Sometimes bad is so very good.
With three weeks until Kit leaves for her big tour, Max promises to give her a break from being the good girl–no strings attached. But when hot days lead to sultry nights, the lines get blurred and suddenly three weeks of bad might not be good enough.
This is an all consuming and heated story that swept me away. The searing heat between Max and Kit was like a live wire, ready to spark at a moments notice. What starts as casual quickly spreads like wildfire, catching them both off guard and running for cover.
Max is a fuck ’em and leave ’em kind of guy. He makes sure that the girls know the score and every time he jumps into bed he knows that there’s an expiration date attached. Notwithstanding his flippant and unapologetic promiscuity, he’s actually an adorably sweet guy with a HUGE….hero complex. Ok, spoiler alert: he’s big everywhere else too. *winks*
When he rescues Kit, the country star who is try to rebuild her image, from a fire he doesn’t expect that anything will happen at all. Of course, that doesn’t stop his fantasies from running wild. The attraction is most definitely not one-sided, but Kit can’t let anything get in between her future, even if she really wants Max between the sheets.
Let the push and pull dynamic of this relationship wash over you, and warm you from the inside out. Kit and Max are sexy, determined and tough – each pulling the other from disaster. Max’s hero complex might be a little out of control, but he’s hot enough to get away with it. Robin writes a story that lets you have fun – it’s dramatic without being too angsty, leaving you to enjoy the story without screaming at your kindle (or book as the case may be). Sometimes you need a book that will just make you smile, and this is one easy read that had me grinning like crazy.
