Wyatt Jennings has been called a lot of things by the media. Bad-boy rocker. Intense drummer. Addict.
Finally out of rehab and desperate for a fresh start, Wyatt rejoins his mega-platinum rock band Shaken Dirty as they prepare for their world tour. But Wyatt’s demons are never far behind, always nipping at his heels for one. More. Fix.
Enter Poppy Germaine, the band’s new social media consultant. A beautiful bombshell who somehow manages to get underneath Wyatt’s skin, Poppy’s an addiction Wyatt can get behind. And even though she’s with the label—and therefore off-limits—he craves her.
Except Poppy isn’t actually a social media consultant. She’s the daughter of the label’s CEO, sent undercover to babysit Wyatt and keep him from falling off the wagon again. Proving herself to her father is Poppy’s only goal—until she finds herself in Wyatt’s bed. But if Wyatt discovers the truth, it could send him spiraling all over again…
Wyatt Jennings fits the typical rocker to a tee: immensely talented, hugely passionate, with a bunch of demons riding him hard – and a hard-core addict who is just out of rehab. And his band Shaken Dirty is on equally shaky ground, held together only by the band members’ staunch belief in him and by the currency of rockstar millions.
Babysitting him under the cover of ‘social media director’ – rather unconvincingly – is Poppy Germaine whose heart lies in music, but is pushed to work in all the aspects but the areas she wants to do. Until she meets Wyatt in the shadows of a back alley and gets several orgasms to remember before she even knows his name.
And so a (rather forced) pairing is born, even if it’s an extremely flimsy and contrived one based on lust which turns to instant love after a week of sex. Built on the questionable foundation of dishonesty and a measure of hypocrisy on Poppy’s part, it was only the amazing tale about an addict crawling his way back into the light and the band members’ camaraderie that kept me obsessively turning the pages. With an abrupt ending with several loose ends hanging, I was left less than satisfied with the Poppy/Wyatt pairing, but happy enough that this broken man had found something else other than his addictions and self-flagellation to hold on to.
