With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?

This is Jet and Ayden’s story.  I’m sure you’ve read Rule but if not that’s okay because this could be a stand alone if need be.

I really enjoyed this story.  Maybe even more than Rule.  I did think it was a little slow to start.  I found myself waiting for action, for something to get me excited.  I felt like a lot of the story could be cut out only because it seemed repetitive in parts.

So Jet’s a rocker.  Ayden is a country girl.  They seem to have nothing in common except attraction.

I loved Jet.  Yes he’s our typical bad boy rocker, tatted and pierced.  He’s moody, seemingly indifferent, and has a the obligatory issues at home.

Ayden is a college student, running from her old life.  In fact she’s completely changed her persona to fit the image she wants to be.

No one knows her background or anything about her life in Kentucky.

So here we have two people with troubled backgrounds, insanely attracted to each other but desperate not to hook up.

Together they’re great however, the secrets they try to keep hidden suddenly rear their ugly heads.

Once the story got going I was interested.  I thought the plot was decent and not at all what I was expecting.  I did find myself more intrigued with learning Cora’s story.

All in all you won’t be disappointed with Jet.
