The New York Times bestselling author of Slow Burn turns up the heat when a sexy bet turns into so much more…
Hawkin Play, the bad boy rock star with a good guy heart, has lived a lifetime of cleaning up after his twin brother’s mistakes. Hunter’s most recent screw-up could land Hawke in jail and risk the band’s future. Hawke agrees to guest lecture at a local college to stay in the judge’s good graces—and a bet with his bandmate to seduce his sexy teaching assistant is icing on the cake.
Quinlan Westin is harder to bed than Hawke imagined. She knows his type and is determined to avoid the rocker at all costs—even if their attraction runs deeper than simple lust.
Just as Hawke might finally be winning over the girl, his brother has other plans. When Hunter realizes his twin finally has a weakness, he’ll stop at nothing to take advantage…
I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
It’s safe to say Sweet Ache will be on my 2015 list of favorite books. It kept me up until 2 a.m.; it sent me to bed with a smile on my face; it made me wake up smiling. It was angsty, heartbreaking and heartwarming, and it was incredibly sexy all at the same time. The writing was phenomenal; the slow building tension between Hawk and Quin left me breathless and my heart pounding. Their dialog and banter was everything I love between characters, it was sexy, sarcastic, and humorous. But most of all, I loved seeing the relationship develop between Hawke and Quin. It was a slow simmer until the pot exploded kind of relationship. There’s a lot more to Hawkin than what meets the eye, and some of my favorite scenes are the ones where we see Quin peel back each layer of Hawkin until she got to his core, similar to “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” kind of peeling. Sweet Ache is one book I wish I could unread so I could read it again for the first time. I fell in love with Bromberg’s writing with her Driven series, Slow Burn solidified my love for her words; however, Sweet Ache has taken my love for her work to a whole new level. Sweet Ache is a solid five star phenomenal book that needs to be on every romance reader’s shelf.
