Emily Brinkman hears all these descriptions in her head, all the things she knows others are thinking when she joins her boyfriend, Clay “Jet” Smith, on tour with his band. It doesn’t matter that she’s going as his PA as well; she knows she’s being judged…but she also knows that the people watching are half right.
Clay can hear what all the men around him think of his sweet girlfriend and he loves having Emily join him on tour. To this woman, he’s not just a one-dimensional axe-slinging guitar god. She loves him and wants the best for him, and she won’t tell him something just because it’s what he wants to hear. But Clay didn’t stop to realize that all the guys on tour–from the roadies to security and even their frontman–would appreciate that Emily is a nice piece of ass. He will need to learn to trust her if their relationship is going to survive.
Will Clay and Emily survive the bumps on the road or will their time on tour drive them apart?
“I loved Emily realizing that Jet’s attitude isn’t so bad when you need to get stuff done. I also loved how Clay felt real pride in his woman when he realized she was much respected in her line of work.” ~ Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Blog
“I enjoyed getting to see the various different dynamics between of all the players (crew/band, Emily/crew, Debbie/Emily) and especially Emily/Jet/Clay…the dual personas of Clay the man and Jet the rockstar and how it affects Emily. It was an insightful look at behind the scenes and what fans see vs what really happens.” ~ Sue Banner

“I just want to prepare you. You’re dating a rock star. It’s an experience unlike anything you’ve ever known before, and talks with your mama couldn’t prepare you for the shit that will go down.”
Yeah…that was another thing Emily wouldn’t tell Debbie about. She’d lost her mother years ago in a horrible car accident. It had been just her and her dad forever—and her dad hadn’t had a clue about how to prepare Emily for anything having to do with being a woman…not that he hadn’t tried. She’d also had an awesome PE teacher in middle school who’d helped her navigate the seas of adolescence. But God bless her dad—he really had tried…and he’d done the best he could.
As for “dating a rock star,” Debbie had no fucking clue about Clay. Rock star or not, inside he was the sweetest, most genuine man Emily had ever known. They’d been through a lot of emotional ups and downs in the short time they’d known each other, and she felt as though they’d grown together, so even though she’d been feeling a little insecure, it wasn’t because of any stupid ass thing Debbie had hinted at.
She was going to keep her mouth shut so as not to encourage any more asinine comments from the woman, but she could see that wasn’t going to happen. Best to just spit it out. “Clay’s not anything like you think, Debbie.”
The frontman’s girlfriend lifted her perfectly sculpted thin eyebrows as her mouth froze. After several seemingly eternal seconds, she let out a long breath of air. “Look, Emmy, I know you’re knee deep in new love. I get that. I know how that works. I was there with Sam once, too. But wake up, girl. Yeah, I know you think you know Clay…but I’ve known him a lot longer than you have.” She brought her cup up to her pink lips and sipped before repeating, “A lot longer.”
That was true…but she had to believe that Clay had been honest with her about his past—his entire past. Debbie had been looking at him not as a friend or as a lover but as the girlfriend of one of his coworkers. Of course, anything she felt about Clay would be jaded. So Emily brought her cup to her lips, trying to think of a comeback.
Debbie began talking again, though, allowing Emily to keep her mouth shut. “Sure…it starts out pretty innocently at first. You don’t even know what’s happening until it’s too late to stop it, and it’s a slippery slope. You’ll lose your guy if you don’t keep going…”

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh Clay…Sigh…but HELLO Jet!! It’s been a looong time since we hooked up. *wiggles eyebrows and whispers* Don’t tell Melinda or Daddy Brad…M’Kay???
So our party boy/Wild Man has settled down with sweet little PA, Emily. All is good in their little world but now the REAL World comes crashing down on them. Jet has to go on tour. Emily is a wreck because she is listening to one of the band members girlfriends spew trash about the life of dating a rocker. Clay is acting more and more like Jet to Emily’s liking plus the roadies treat her like crap. Jet can’t handle his own insecurities about Emily’s love. Is it because he is a rocker with bundles of money or does she really love Clay and his sweet sensitive heart??
This book our couple goes through it all. They are so excited to be together and keep their little “love cloud” a rolling that they start to let other people’s views and perceptions get in the way of their happiness.
I loved Emily realizing that Jet’s attitude isn’t so bad when you need to get stuff done. I also loved how Clay felt real pride in his woman when he realized she was much respected in her line of work. If only the two can talk and not just sweep things under the carpet until the bomb goes off……
I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review.
You have no idea how excited I was to get more of Jet/Clay. You see I have loved him the most out of all the Bullet series guys since jump. I wasn’t sure how Boiling Point could top Feverish with Clay and Emily but she did it and I fell more in love with Clay/Jet and Emily.
The time has come for the band to go on tour and Emily is going because she is Clay’s P.A. She has her insecurities tested while on the road. Between the treatment from the road crew, being on the bus with all the guys, seeing all the girls come and go, and then there is Debbie that keeps talking about all the horrible tour life things sure doesn’t help with all her insecurities.
Clay has been burned before by a love and now he is caught in his head thinking maybe Emily is like his ex. Both feel the disconnect but because of their pasts are having difficult time overcoming it and talking to each other instead of keeping it bottled up waiting for the top to explode. Jet is able to toss that brick wall up and move on but sweet Clay struggles with what he thinks is going on. Can Clay and Emily survive life on the road or will what they have fizzle out before it really gets started?
This is a great quick read and continuation of Feverish being able to see into life on the road and to see the tribulations they go through. I enjoyed Emily and her way of dealing with what is going on during the tour. I loved seeing Clay’s sweet insecure side and then seeing Clay’s alter ego side Jet come out to play. I’m so excited for this series to get to know the other band members and of course to see more of my Clay/Jet. *swoon* Clay/Jet I still love them equally from the sweet caring Clay to the down and dirty Jet I cannot get enough of them.
*taps foot* Angie I just read your review and not cool Daddy Brad will soooo be informed. KISSES.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.
