A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation…
Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written-each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band is on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed…
Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks-or rather storms-into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.
But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…
Sarge is the lead singer for Old News, a band whose lyrics are so dirty they aren’t suitable for kids. He comes back to New Jersey to see his sister and meet his 3 year old niece for the first time. His sister is worried about what it will do to his niece when he leaves, so she gets her best friend, Jasmine, to let him stay with her. The thing is Jasmine has been the inspiration for every single one of Sarge’s songs and she has no idea.
Jasmine was determined to make it as a singer but never did. She ended up stuck in New Jersey working in a factory. When she sees Sarge for the first time in four years, she doesn’t realize it is him and is instantly attracted to him. For her, the biggest problem is that she is seven years older than him. She worries what the town will think if they have a relationship.
The lust between Sarge and Jasmine is super hot. There are several steamy scenes in this book and I loved them! The writing style was excellent and the characters were very relatable. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
