My Review :)
Irelyn grew up with an eccentric music loving mother and her routine oriented little cousin Tommy. She doesn’t know who her father is, mom can’t remember who he could possibly be, although she had narrowed it down to 3 or 4. Even though she is in college, fairly close to home, Irelyn still spends time with her family. She is also quickly making new friends at school especially with her roommate Morgan.
When the girls head to Rusty’s to see local band Out Back Irelyn life changes forever.
“Once the spotlight hit the lead singer, my breath left me in one noisy swoosh. Luckily, the music was so loud that no one noticed. I finished my soda as my eyes drank in the lean form strumming his gingers manically over the guitar strings and singing with his mouth provocatively close to the microphone.”
Good girl Irelyn catches the eye of the amazing-in-more-ways-than-one Lucas and they spend the night together. Irelyn knows she shouldn’t stay, regretting what she has done. She feels guilty because she has a boyfriend from back home, Dustin Summerlin…
I LOVED Lucas! He was such a sweet guy, always calling Irelyn “love”. Talented, good looking, sweet and caring….where can I find me one of these!? Irelyn sees it two and begins down a dangerous road of spending more and more time with Schemxy Lucas while still carrying on her relationship with Dustin.
Join Irelyn as she picks through all of the reasons, right and wrong, to make the decisions that will change her life in a way that she never imagined. While she thinks she knows where she is going, someone has different plans for her that do not involve her ending up with Lucas.
I really enjoyed this book! If you have read the Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens then this is a book for you. Schmexy rocker boy, beautiful confused girl, and the good guy from back home in a love triangle….what more could you want!
