In the mood for a friends to lovers romance? Then Shock Jock by AM Madden is for you! I purposely didn’t read the blurb on this one, it’s AM Madden so I’m going to be reading it either way. It was kind of fun not knowing what I was getting in to. I was making guesses from the get go as to what would happen. Some were way off and some were spot on and I was STILL shocked when things happened!
Vaughn Lair (yes that’s right Lair….for you AM Madden fans you know what that means!!) has a “Superman complex”. By profession he helps people over the airwaves with his irresistible voice and penchant for dirty talk. Personally, he also feels the need to help people, rescue them even. It’s who he is and he is good at it. I was expecting something completely different from his character….I mean, he talks sex for a living so I kind of was waiting for an alpha male with nothing by sex on his brain day and night. Don’t get me wrong, he is alpha and sex but there is so much more to him. Vaughn is insightful and takes time to think things through. He is logical yet emotional, rational yet confused. You will find it hard not to fall for him.
Haven is Vaughn’s best friend. She is also is personal assistant and keeps his life on track.
If my life was a tornado of chaos, then Haven was my center.
She is not like most women that we read about. Haven is sexy without knowing it. She dresses and acts for herself, not for anyone else. I liked her right away. Her ability to make a joke and bust Vaughn’s ass all the time was great. Haven is the epitome of bestie, she moves across the country when the opportunity of a lifetime comes up for Vaughn, that’s right for HIM not for her. Her love for him was apparent from the beginning, but you will never see what else is coming.
I assessed I had two speeds when it came to Haven. There was the snail’s pace that describes out relationship over the years…and supersonic, which described it since our first kiss.
The slow burn and the heat that ensues between these two was amazing. The sharing, the loving, the honesty (for the most part ;) ) wove itself beautifully. Oh, and for all you Lair fans….we get to visit with some of our old friends so be on the lookout for some Jack and Leila!!
Best friends, partners, and lovers…the perfect trifecta.
