When you play with the Devil, you’re going to get burned.
When Sam Archer, bad boy rock star, decides to move out of the city and do some soul searching, the last thing he expects to find is his new neighbor Gracelyn Ward. She’s everything he’s not—19 years old, religious, and an obedient child—but he finds himself falling for her anyway.
Gracelyn Ward has always had a crush on Sam—who hasn’t? But she never thought he would be moving next door to her family and end up being so…likeable. Sam is everything Gracelyn’s parents never wanted for her, not to mention that he’s over 30. Despite her better judgment, it’s not long before she’s falling in love and beginning to question everything she’s ever held dear in her life.
When her parents give an ultimatum, Grace and Sam are torn between desire and obligation. Will they succumb to the fire or will they get scorched by the flames?
I received a copy from the author for an honest review.
Sweet Baby Jesus this book!! I was blown away. I am so used to Jade’s rocker books being so filled with Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll……you know the rock and roll life style but this book is so not that. Yes, there is some of it in the beginning because we are seeing Sam and Debbie at the end of their relationship. We have all seen it coming in Clay and Emily’s book but this book we see the final nail in the coffin.
Sam and Grace’s book is…gosh dare I say it…so sweet. Yes, friends Jade wrote an angsty book and the love story between these characters is amazing. The love story is told so effortlessly. I mean we are reading the story and SEEING the easy friendship turn into so much more over a simple task of making a pot of chili!! Sam is 30 and Grace is 19 so what could they have in common right? But as the story unfolds and we see all they have in common. They are both the perfect fit for the other. They both bring out the best in the other. They both fall head over heels and it terrifies them like nothing else can or will. Sam thinks he is so bad for her because of her good girl persona. Grace thinking her inexperience is making her look like an idiot because no rock god would want to date her!
I loved Grace. She is a young and innocent girl but she isn’t an idiot either. She is strong in her convictions and she knows Sam is who she wants. She also knows her parents will not be ok with her seeing the rocker next door and so she hides their romance much to Sam’s disapproval.
We see them both struggle with wanting to other person and we see them trying to figure out how to be with the other and make their partner happy in the same process. The ending chapters of the book FLEW. There is so much happening but Sam……..Dreamy sigh………….yeah what he does to secure his girl to him forever……………….well let’s just say how can her parents not love him after that???
Now when can we see Brian get his HEA after his divorce???? I freaking still love him!! Plus the name ya know 😊
Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.
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.
You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.
