He’s the last man Chloe Girard should love . . . but the first she ever could.
 
Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman’s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I am his.

He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return.

But dreams don’t last forever, and ours is no exception. Because my nightmares are darker, and my wounds deeper, than I could ever reveal. And as much as Ethan wants to protect me, the secrets we we share will only tear us apart.

I want him to hold me, to tell me that it’s okay.
That he doesn’t blame me for freaking out.
That he still wants me.

And that everything between us is somehow going to be all right.
But even as I think it, I know better. I gave up on fairy tales five long years ago, and nothing, nobody, is going to be able to change that now.

Besides, nothing is okay. How can it be when Ethan is standing in front of me, his hands out in the universal I’m-not-going-to-hurt-you position? When he’s staring at me with eyes gone dark and blank?

“I’m sorry.” I finally manage to choke the words out.
“You’re sorry?” He sounds so incredulous that the words hit me like a blow. It’s the last straw. “Baby, I—”
I don’t wait around for him to finish whatever he’s going to say. Instead, I push past him, make a mad dash for the uneven stone steps that lead up to his house. That lead to freedom.

“Chloe, stop!” He chases after me, which only makes me run faster. “Baby, you’re going to trip! You’re going to hurt yourself!”
I ignore the warning, keep running. It doesn’t matter. What’s the pain of a little fall when I already feel like I’ve been ripped open, my insides spilling out for everyone to see?

“Damn it, Chloe.” He’s right behind me. I can feel his breath on my neck, hear his footsteps slapping at the rock right behind me. I half expect to feel his hands on me as he yanks me to a stop. But still he doesn’t touch me. For some reason, his reticence only wounds me more.

Tears I still refuse to let fall are in my eyes, in my chest. My vision is clouded and I’m having trouble breathing. I’m strangling on my pain and the aching, painful breaths my body doesn’t quite know what to do with anymore.

I’m almost at the top when it happens. I stumble trying to climb up a particularly high step and I bang my shins, hard, on the harsh, jagged edge of the stair. My legs go out from under me and I start to fall, panic coursing through me at the thought of tumbling twenty feet off the side of the open staircase to the sand below.

Ethan does touch me then, his hands jolting out to grab me so quickly that I know he must have been waiting for this to happen all along. Then I’m in his arms, my legs draped over his arm and my side pressed against his chest as he carries me up the few remaining steps.

I wrap my arms around his neck and hold on tight, even after we get to his patio. I’m sure he wants to put me down, to show me the door as quickly as he can. But I’m not ready to let go yet, not ready to give up the strange and powerful comfort that comes from just being held in his arms.

Ethan makes no move to put me down. Instead, he crosses to one of the many long outdoor sofas that make up the different seating arrangements out here. He sinks down onto it, keeping me on his lap. In his arms. And then he starts to rock me like a child.

The dam inside me bursts, and emotions—dark, messy, devastating—come pouring out in all directions. I don’t know how to stop them. I can’t stop them, not anymore.

Unable to do anything else, I bury my face in Ethan’s chest and give in to the harsh, ugly sobs that threaten to tear me in two.

About Tracy Wolff

Tracy Wolff/Tessa Adams/Tracy Deebs collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Her first novel, A Christmas Wedding, appeared on the scene in November of 2008 and since then she has sold eighteen novels—including Erotic Suspense and Paranormal to New American Library, Contemporary Superromance to Harlequin, and Paranormal Young Adult Romance and Contemporary Young Adult Romance to Walker Books. Now a part time English professor at her local community college,she lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and three sons. She was a 2010 Rita nominee.

Book Description:

Book Description:
Jamison Matthews has lusted after Ryder Montgomery since she was a preteen. But now that Ryder and her brother's band, Shaken Dirty, has made it huge, she's just one of many pining for the brooding lead singer. Too bad Ryder still sees her as a little sister. Not that it matters. Her brother would never allow it, and the last thing Jamison wants is to be another notch on a rock star's bed post. Even if it's Ryder's.

Ryder doesn't deserve happiness. After his fame destroyed his last girlfriend, he swore he'd never fall in love again. So when Jamison, the girl he's been in danger of loving for years, joins the band on the road, he'll do anything to deny the sparks between them--even after one hot night together. But Jamison is determined to show Ryder that he's worthy of love--her love--and that she's all grown up and ready to play.


Ginny’s Review:

I read this book in a matter of about 2.5 hours. Maybe less. But the fact that I didn’t put down my kindle once, even to make breakfast, is a testament to how drawn in I was.

When I chose this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, as I’ve never read anything by Tracy Wolff before. But the fact that it was about rock stars, the music, and romance — well, I was already intrigued. I love music. I’ve said it many times, and if you look back at my other reviews, you’ll see a common theme there.

The book is fast paced, and draws you in immediately.  It starts out as Jamison is watching her brother and his band mates performing on stage, and how their music takes her away from absolute disaster that her life has become in less than a week — all of this crap happening before the beginning of the book. She lost her job, her boyfriend and her friend — the latter two to each other.  And may I point out that I was actually pretty happy that neither of them made an appearance. They didn’t need to. For some reason that stuck out to me and I found myself really enjoying the fact that Ms Wolff didn’t take that road.

But if you’ve ever been to a concert for a band or performer you love — you know the feeling she’s having as she listens to the music and is swept away. It’s conveyed pretty perfectly. Add to that the fact that she has a HUGE lust on for Ryder, the lead singer, and you’ve been hooked.

The story line doesn’t have any huge twists and turns, yet it’s still a fantastic romance. Why? Because every character (that matters) is a fully developed person. Jamison and her brother, Jared, are as close as can be. He’s the older brother who told her men are scum, and to stay away from them, since she was a preteen — something that made me laugh because my brothers and father have used those exact words to me before.  Ryder has a tough history, and you even get to see a little into the pasts of Wyatt and Quinn — two other band members. And seeing as this is the first in a series, I am definitely looking forward to Wyatt and Jared’s stories, because they may be “secondary” characters (if you want to get technical) but they have a huge presence throughout the book. You learn to love them.

The last two things I’ll point out about why I loved this book are small, but important:
1) “Jamison” — Not a common name. But not so outrageous that the reader isn’t sure how the character made it through grade school. I like that.
2) Jamison is a size 12. She’s 5’8″, I believe, and she’s a size 12. I like that she isn’t from the mystical land of tiny women. Thank you, Ms Wolff, for that. Seriously.

In summation, I’ll definitely be looking for the other books in this series, and looking up some of her previous works. $3.71 is a fair price to ask on Amazon, so check it out.
