Why Do We Like This Book?

Kylie's clever voice shines in this story of Jimmy and Lena. Jimmy is kind of a-hole, but in my opinion, all bands need an a-hole. He's suave, debonair and damaged. What is Lena to do when she's developed feelings for the man? This release moves at a slower pace than the others in the series; but that suits Jimmy and Lena's story perfectly. The couple needs time to discover each other and for their feelings to bloom. Highly recommended. ~ Nelle

Let me start by saying that Mal is my man and no one will ever compare to him. That being said, Jimmy is delicious in a grumpy, broody way. An awful childhood left him believing he didn't deserve love. So he numbed himself with drugs, booze and mindless sex…the ultimate Rock Star cliche. He finally gets himself sober and now needs a "sobriety companion." Enter Lena. She's everything Jimmy doesn't know he needs. She fought her feelings for him, and it was hilarious watching their "plan" to make her fall out of love with him. I love that it took a while for them to get together. I hated Jimmy more than I loved him, but it was beautiful when it all finally came together.

Jimmy is our perfect broody rockstar. All tortured and fighting some serious demons. Lena is our take-no-shit firecracker who is tasked with basically being Jimmy's babysitter and making sure he doesn't fall off the wagon. Naturally, feelings get involved. And penises. Feelings and penises. And angst. Who doesn't love feelings and penises and angst?! And as always, Kylie Scott's brilliant sense of humor is injected all throughout. Lead is a delicious slow burn that I highly recommend.

Favorite Quotes

With an exasperated sound, Jimmy jumped up in an overly athletic fashion. Show off. I bet he was amazing in bed. No, forget that, he’d be a selfish lover, too busy staring at himself in the mirrored ceiling to see to the business at hand. Between my legs just needed to calm the hell down.
He smiled at me, he actually double dimple smiled at me. Crap. Not only did my knees weaken but my toes curled it was so stunning, star shine and moonbeams couldn’t compare. Unicorns could take a flying fuck.

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”


“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.

“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”

“Can’t find it anywhere…”

“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”

“Sure you haven’t seen it?”

“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low. I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.

He frowned. “No.”

“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like some creepy perv?”

“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.

“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray- zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.

“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”

Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”

“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”

“I’m not!”
