From USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt...
First Top 40 hit at age seventeen? My first tabloid breakup scandal quickly followed.
Earned my first Grammy? Discovered Mommy Dearest was embezzling my money.
Landed a leading role in a movie? My fiancé called off our engagement the next day.
I might have a multi-million-dollar recording contract, a sold-out world tour, and more money in the bank than I ever imagined, but every time I hit a milestone in my career, my personal life suffers.
Then in steps my new bodyguard, rugged and with a past I connect with. The closer we get, the more powerful my feelings grow, complicating our professional relationship.
I thought Kane would be different. I hoped he’d be the one man to stand by my side, undaunted by the fame and attention that trails me.
The press calls me the “Ice Princess of Pop” because of my unyielding façade throughout heartbreak and betrayal. Perhaps it’s time to show them the real me.
With every syllable, I pour out my emotions and allow them to puddle, forming lyrics from my soul’s breath. And with each word, my broken heart cries out for Kane, begging him to help me break this pattern.
To help me stop being so damn good at goodbyes.
I’ve been a fan of RC Boldt’s work since I won a copy of Out of Love. Kind of nice the couple from that book, Foster and Noelle, makes an appearance in this book. You see, Kane, at least initially, works with/for Foster.
But Kane is asked to fill in as head security for Simone temporarily. There is an instant attraction, but neither act on it right away. It’s a great, sexy romance which Ms. Boldt is fantastic at.
Both have been previously hurt by past relationships, so neither wants to “lay it all out there”. But it was fun watching thing change between the two.
One of my favorite characters was Simone’s best friend, Matthias Tobin. That man has no filter when it comes to his bestie, he always had me laughing when he showed up. I really hope Matty gets a book of his own.
An Emotional Read
Kudos to Ms. Boldt because she has outdone herself with this book.
A strong heroine and a broken hero. Can they put each other back together. Simone is used to being able to only depend on herself with only a couple people that are true friends. Kane is trying to get over heartache. When Simone and Kane are put together they learn the real person under each other façade.
Ms. Boldt always write great characters but with these two she dug down deep and brought us two people that you fall in love with immediately. I also learned a few things on how to be a strong women from Simone. This read makes you think so much on how rumors can be so destructive and affect someone's life.
An emotional, heart wrenching and romantic read.
A must read!!!
I was soooo excited to get Kane’s story! The chemistry between him and Simone is immediate and intense. I love a great bodyguard read, and this one is probably one of my faves! They both come so far, overcoming demons of their past, and it was fantastic seeing them heal together. And catching up with my favorite Fernandina Beach crew was just the icing on the cake! A great must read I would highly recommend!!
