Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant.
While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia. There was nothing disguised about Jake. Including the fact he made a habit of making very bad decisions about who to give his love.
But for Josephine and Jake, there was one person who adored them. One person who knew how to lead them to happiness. And one person who was intent on doing it.
Even if she had to do it as her final wish on this earth.

KA must have been channeling her inner Ice Queen when she wrote this book. At first I was surprised, this lead female character seemed the exact opposite of those Rock Chick gals. But, in the end, Josie was about family & love. I should not have doubted KA.
I do love Kristen Ashley. She’s a fabulous writer and storyteller. However, I truly hate her ongoing promotion of stripping as empowering and valid employment. It is not. Allowing women to believe that the best way to go through life is to sell their bodies, in any manner, is demeaning. Stripping has nothing to do with the beauty of a woman and everything to do with reducing her to a sexual object - removing all traces of identity and personhood from the woman’s perceived value, both personal and societal. I am again extremely disappointed in her for that.
My first KA book and not my last!!!
Yes I know... I'm late to these books. But it will not be my last! I loved this story from beginning to end! I laughed, cried, and loved. Josie and Jake were perfect and what his kids brought to the story brought everything together. Perfection!!!
