Quinn Salisbury doesn't think she's cut out for this whole living thing. Even as a young girl she struggled. Just when she thinks she's found a way to leave her violent past behind her, the only thing that's kept her going is ripped away, leaving her damaged and heartbroken.
Four years later, she is slowly rebuilding her life and lands a job as an assistant band manager to Jamieson, the hot new Australian act climbing their way to the top of the charts. There she meets Travis Valentine, the charismatic older brother of her boss, Mac.
From his commanding charm to his confidence and passion, Travis is everything Quinn believes is too good for her, and despite her apprehension, she finds their attraction undeniable and intense.
When her past resurfaces, it complicates their relationship. Instead of reaching out for help, Quinn pushes Travis away, until a staggering secret is revealed that leaves her fighting for her very life.
Torn between running and opening her heart to the man determined to have her, can Quinn find the strength within herself to fight for her future?

*This is the second book in the series and I would highly recommend reading the first although this can be read as a stand alone*
What more could you want in a book apart from sexy men, Alpha males and Rock stars? NOTHING that is what - Oh My gosh I think I need a cold shower after reading this book it was that steamy! I am surprised my kindle screen didn't steam up a little.
"...When I was holding you and inside of you, I watched your eyes come alive, and fuck spring because you were hotter than summer..."
This is the story of Quinn and Travis (Insert instant swoon) and how Travis proves he is just the person to fix Quinn and give her the strength she needs to no longer be broken - have I mentioned he does this in a sexy alpha male way that oozes hotness? hmm well I should have.
Quinn has been through hell an back, a checklist of her life would read something like - Crappy Mother? Check - Abusive Step Father? Check - Alone? Check - Now it is up to Travis to break through her walls and make her understand she can be happy.
This is a brilliant story and an excellent continuation of the Valentine men and I cannot wait to read all of their stories in fact I would rather like them all here now - the men and the stories please and thank you. Kate is excellent at telling a story and you can tell she loves the men she is writing about as their passion and appeal just leap off the pages and straight into your own hearts. This is my favourite book of this series so far and I am happy to announce that Travis has joined my ever expanding list of book boyfriends (Trust me he is in great company)
