From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ashley Jade comes an edgy, enemies-to-lovers standalone romance about mistakes, forgiveness, and second chances.
He was the talented bad boy everyone wanted.
I was the irrelevant geek everyone hated.
He was the sun...drawing all of us in.
I was a black hole...taking up space.
He was destined to be a star.
I was destined to remain an insignificant no one.
Until he made me believe I was special...
And then he destroyed me.
I never thought I'd see Phoenix Walker again after he broke my heart, but fate had other plans.
One tour. Eight weeks. Forty shows.
Countless opportunities to make him pay.
The world thought he was a God...
But I knew the truth.
5 Star Review by Lorena
By far the best book I've read by this author to date and I absolutely love her work. She always knows how to suck me in and I can't seem to find my way out whenever I immerse myself into her books, her words always captivate me no matter what.
Lennon was assigned to tutor Phoenix in order for him to graduate and even though she didn't like the idea she agreed to do it. She has always harbored a crush on this guy but she knew he would never in a million years take a liking to her just like no one else has due to the fact that she's a big girl. She doesn't have the body of a super model nor does she have the looks which she's okay with it, but the one thing she does have is a beautiful voice and she's smart as hell.
What Lennon doesn't expect is to get along with Phoenix because he's such a hard person to decipher, he doesn't like to show his true self. He likes to keep everything inside, but he sees something different in Lennon and he somehow trusts her and he lets his guard down a little with her.
But then things get a little out of control and things don't turn out the way we were hoping for these two.
Let's fast forward 4 years later and things just don't go how we thought they would. But this author definitely had me tugging at my heartstrings. I was all over the place with these two and the side characters were such great supporting characters in this book that you just had to go and fall in love with them as well. But Phoenix and Lennon were a force to be reckon with and as much as you would love to hate them you just had to love them. It had a lot of fire and passion and I absolutely loved that about this book and so much sizzling sex that it made your panties wet (no lie)! But there were so many vulnerable moments that made you want to cry as well. It's just one of those books that you just can't and won't forget.
