Franco Genovese is the drummer for world renowned American rock band, Rook. He’s got it all. A killer smile. Tattoos. Talent. Razor sharp wit and humor. And a heart as big, and generous, as they come.
Life is good. Steady. Uncomplicated. Just the way he likes things.
Until one night at an unassuming L.A. bar changes everything.
Enter Gemma Hendricks.
She’s a successful young architect from Northern England with an adorable smile, sarcasm for days, and an unparalleled trusting heart.
The attraction is instant.
So is their friendship.
It’s also temporary because they’ll both be heading home, thousands of miles apart from each other, in a few days.
Or is it?
There’s something Gemma wants more than anything else.
And when Franco propositions her to provide what she’s looking for, everything changes.
Will it transform friendship into love, or will it be their ruin?
Note from the author: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for mature audiences.
Welcome to the lighter, funnier side of the Bright Side series by Kim Holden! Franco was a great addition to this series and his humor and witty banter lighten the mood for an all around good time!
Naughty American boy meets a sassy leopard print wearing Brit and the race is on! Franco and Gemma were destined to meet, thanks to a certain “wanker” ruining a blind date….the setting was meant to be! From the start they had this easy way with each other, nothing forced, nothing fake. Their future was supposed to be a fun filled week before they both had to their respective homes but what we get is so much more…
“I felt with her everything inside me. It was like she set fire to a pile of kindling with her presence and I was standing right in the middle of the pyre, being devoured quickly and thoroughly.”
Kim Holden gave us slow and steady progression of one of the best friendships since Kate “Bright Side” and Gus. The fun and the laughter and of course the heat between Gemma and Franco was undeniable and kept me reading and wanting more. I really enjoyed how straight forward they both are with everything that they do, they tell it like it is and hold nothing back. Gemma has made such an impact on Franco in such a short period of time.
“I know outside this house there are billions of people doing a billion different things, but I feel a little sorry for them at the moment. Because they’re not in my shoes, in Gem’s company. She makes everything better.”
What unfolds is nothing like I would have expected from the badass naughty american drummer boy and his new found friend. Can’t wait for you all to get better aquatinted with Franco!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Some of my favorite things: reading, writing, the two coolest guys on the planet (my husband and son), my bicycle (my husband built it for me), Facebook (I’m fairly certain it’s an addiction at this point), iced coffee (hazelnut), and music (LOVE the 1975, Dredg, the xx, Haim, Teenage Bottlerocket, and 30 Seconds to Mars). I also love dreaming, which brings me to my next point. I have one bit of advice for anyone reading this … follow your dreams. It’s never too late. Get started today … heck get started RIGHT NOW! I wanted to write a book 20 years ago. Instead I waited. And waited. I should’ve been writing. But I didn’t. I don’t do regrets, because the past is just that, the past. But let me tell you there’s nothing in the world like achieving something you’ve dreamt about for years and years. So, get started. Make your dreams reality.
I love to hear from other readers. Send me a message or find me on Facebook (https://facebook.com/kimholdenauthor) and tell what’s up in your reading world.
