This is the second book in the Manhattan Records series.
I make plans and follow through. I don’t take risks, not like this. But he distracts me in ways I never thought possible.
I know the danger, but I dare to hope that he’ll change…for me.
Manhattan Records’ employee Ashlee Webb knows it’s a bad idea to sleep with the company’s founder, Nate Lexington, but she’s helpless to stop. However, when Nate’s past comes to light, will it be the wake-up call she needs to break away, or can their turbulent fling survive?
I enjoyed this book. The storyline was great and I love the characters.
Ashlee is a great character. She’s trying to understand Nate even though he’s closed book. When he acts like an ass, she stick by her guns and waits for him to realise. She’s a strong character.
Nate can be a right asshole at times, but I really like his character. It was nice to see him drop his walls at times, and he was really making good progress until the end. It was nice to see him face and past and try to fix his mistakes. Ashlee brings out the best in him.
Their relationship developed well. They definitely have a spark and there’s a physical connection between which is on another level. Their problem is that they don’t communicate enough.
Ashlee’s reaction at the end is understandable, but Nate went straight into defensive mode instead of calmly explaining himself. I think of they talk about what’s happened, they can work it through. They clearly feel strongly towards each other, so I think they can move forward together.
It was nice to see Ashlee’s relationship with Finley develop in this book. I quite like how he’s trying to help Nate, someone’s he’s known a long time, yet trying to protect Ashlee at the same time.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next. I would definitely recommend this series.
My rating: 5/5*
