Return of the Bad Boy
He's a mess...
Asher Knight has three constants in his life: music, beautiful women, and a bottle of Jack. He lives for the next gig, the next city, and dreams only of a life spent in front of an arena full of screaming fans. But Asher's nomad ways come to a sudden stop when he learns he's the father of a three-year-old from a past relationship and suddenly this rock star bad boy is forced to put down roots.
Only she can clean up
Gloria Shields is no one's fool. Sure, the sexual chemistry between her and Asher has always been intense, but she'd never risk giving her heart to a man who has a perfect record for breaking them. Except the man desperate to make things right with his newfound son is nothing like the rock god she's guarded her heart against for years. And it isn't long before she starts to wonder if life with this bad boy might be the best thing that's ever happened to her.
Asher, yes please!
Oh my how I loved Asher! He is the ultimate bad boy rockstar and yet he has a soft side to him that you wouldn't expect. Gloria is his publicist and as happens, they get together and each of their worlds was rocked. But Gloria has been hurt by too many people in her past. And she keeps pushing Asher away. But Asher won't go. He knows that Gloria is the one for him...even if he doesn't recognize that those are his feelings yet.
This story is part of a series, which I didn't know, but can definitely be read as a stand alone. However I'm going to be going back and reading the rest of the groups stories. Jessica Lemmon did a great job of letting you know enough that you weren't lost and pulling you in to want to read about the others.
Funny, sexy and emotionally charged! This story has an amazingly sexy rock star as well as many, many other drool worthy secondary male characters. The many female counterparts to those secondary male characters are pretty awesome too. The clever, sexy banter between Asher and Gloria is so much fun! They complement each other perfectly. So many things are happening to both of them and through it all he's trying to keep her from running. He's definitely got his work cut out for him.
This story is real. The drama is emotional and the sex is off-the-charts EXPLOSIVE! Jessica Lemmon knows how to write her rock stars! I have definitely found another one-click author.

Asher and Gloria's story has been the one most fans of this series have been waiting for since we were first introduced to Evergreen Cove and its wonderful residents in book one. Their story does not disappoint. There are a couple of obstacles that they have to get past in their journey to love. One of which you learn about at the end of A Bad Boy for Christmas. Asher and Gloria can both be stubborn but in different ways. They can also be fun and lovable. You get to meet some new characters along the way and will want to do bodily harm to a specific character. You get to delve deeper into Gloria's past and it helps explain why she is the way she is. Overall it was a great ending to this whole series. Im so sad to say goodbye to all of the characters.
I would read the books in order to get the full impact of this relationship and the whole series in general. No cliffhangers for individual books tho.
