Liam Christianson is the devil-may-care, rhythm guitarist for Bayou Stix, the hottest rock band around. He’s a playboy and likes to do things his way. No regrets. He knows that women love him, and he uses that to his advantage. He’s cocky and shallow. Or so it seems.
Clove Rodrigue is the baby sister of Liam’s bandmate and friend. She’s a sweet, fairly innocent young woman who was dealt a bad hand and became a victim of circumstance. After finishing culinary school, she returns home to Baton Rouge. She finds herself living under the same roof as Liam and they quickly realize they are like oil and water. He hates how perfect she is, and she can’t stand his treatment of women.
Both Liam and Clove are accustomed to letting others see only what they want them to see, each hiding behind false pretenses.
What happens when polar opposites realize that their hatred of one another is really attraction? Will they succumb to the allure? What happens when the things that you fight so hard against are the very things you need the most in the world?
ARC received for an honest review
This is the 3rd novel in the Bayou Stix series, and I think it is the best so far!
Skye Turner has drawn me back into the loves and lives of the men of Bayou Stix, and this is Liam Christianson's book.
After a bad breakup, Liam's bandmate Dade has his sister move back home and into his house. Liam is currently living in Dade's house, and as kind of a built in "babysitter" for 23 year old Clove.
These two could not be more different if they tried. Liam is the consummate rock star. Never settling down, a parade of women in and out of his bed room. Clove is young and sweet and innocent, so not what Liam wants or needs.
Or is she??
I love the bickering, the snarky remarks, the fighting between Liam and Clove. There is a fine line between love and hate, and this pair are toeing that line. Even behind all the sniping at each other, you can feel that it is not at all malicious.
In fact, you could cut the unresolved sexual tension between the two with a knife!!
The sparks just fly between Liam and Clove. I could understand why Liam does not want to act on the attraction (hell, she is his friend's baby sister, who wants to ruin that friendship if things go sour between them) but I just wanted them to forget about everyone else, and do what is best for themselves.
So, do they act on the attraction, or will they forever be looking at each other across the room, pining away?
Nuh uh ~ for that you are going to have to read for yourself.
I loved that we got more of the other band mates and their family and friends. This is such a close knit group of friends that no story would be complete if they weren't sticking their nose in everyone else's business, givig their two cents worth, and being the wonderful support group for each other.
I think this series just keeps getting better and better, and with that little set up of Dade's story at the end of this one, I can't wait for book 4!!
