When burying your heart and being alone forever is less terrifying than letting your demons out.
Rock guitarist Spook Mortensen wants nothing to do with sex, love, or intimacy. Having had his heart brutally destroyed by the explosive ending of his first real relationship, he's content to remain celibate forever. Better that than being a monster.
Sound engineer Allegra Hutton can't forget the mad chemistry that sparked between her and Spook the previous times their paths crossed. They've been text buddies for a year.
When their paths collide on the Riviera, the reckless energy that burns between them rekindles and reaches new heights. But Spook has no intention of letting his guard down or Alle in. Good thing Alle's a born fighter. She's determined to get her man, and she's not giving up, even if that means digging into Spook's past to break through the barriers he erects. Unfortunately, she's not the only one out to expose him…
Reflex is an angsty, spicy, heart-wrenching rockstar romance featuring flawed characters with hidden depths, families you wouldn't wish on anyone, and the ones you build for yourself. Turn up the volume, grab a cold drink, and climb aboard the Black Halo hard rocking, dirty, sexy, crazy train.
This is the first novel in the Off the Record series and forms part of the wider Black Halo world. You can read about Spook and Alle's first meetings in the novella collection Off the Record.

A Great Read
This is the first book I have read in this series and because of that I have missed out on some of the background information on Spook and Ally. This story revolves around Spook’s continued celibacy and the one woman, Ally who just might be able to reach him. There is a lot going on in this story and it appears to be continued into the next story at least. The story is well written and entertaining in how Ally is slowly breaking down Spook’s barriers. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
