Ryker Oakley only cared about three things during school —fighting, his band, and getting laid. When he took it upon himself to ‘babysit’ Bryleigh Munroe, he didn’t expect her to be so much trouble, and he sure as shit wasn’t prepared for how fast she would grow on him. Fast-forward to eight years later, his band—Twisted Transistor—is the most successful rock group known to mankind. When his brother’s wedding brings the only girl he ever came close to caring about back into his life, he discovers something he thought they had left behind in the past, had been destroying her daily.Bryleigh Munroe was a popular girl at school, but because her father was a politically powerful man in the San Diego region, the boys either swore away from her or were trying too hard to get with her. She wanted one night. Quick and dirty. No strings. Only she didn’t expect Ryker Oakley to flip the script on her without her even realizing. Eight years later, Bryleigh still battles with the mistakes she made when she was younger. She’s had to deal with things that she shouldn’t have had to, all on her own.
After all this time has their bond remained silent? Can she forgive the torment Ryker inflicted on her? Or will the choices they made all those years ago force them to re-unite.
This was my first time reading Ms.Jones’s work and I really enjoyed it!! Wow, it was one crazy journey of a read!! I liked that it spanned years and things took time to progress. It was intense, heartbreaking, sexy, frustrating, and engaging! Ryker and Bryleigh’s story isn’t perfect it was messy and honest. It doesn’t hold anything back and In my opinion that’s what makes it so great!! I loved all songs that were mentioned and how music clicks with us in ways we can’t explain but feel. Ms.Jones created such a realistic book where love can be the most destructive thing of all. Also, I liked that she showed the bad, the good, and everything in-between when it comes to not only relationships but life in general. I look forward to picking up more of her work soon!! 🙂
Bryleigh Munroe was a character that became a wild child in her teenage years. She was seeking a physical connection but got more than she bargained for when Ryker Oakley walked into her life. Years later she’s still haunted by the past by has been able to move forward but not fully. Coming face to face all that time later with the only man that’s ever owned her heart changes everything. At times I wanted nothing more than to shake some sense into her. My heart broke for the things she went through. I loved seeing her grow as a character and become her own person. Her friendship with her best friend Indie was so sweet and hilarious! I hoped in the end her heart would come out unscathed and she’d be happy.
Ryker Oakley was a character that was the definition of a bad boy. He lived and breathed music. In his teens his arrogance shined through without shame. He was bold and went after what he wanted. Looking after Bryleigh Munroe was easier said than done especially when temptation was thrown into the mix. Unshared feelings and tempers flaring led to it all falling apart. Years later he’s finally made it big with his rock band Twisted Transistor but the thing that’s missing is the one woman who had ever owned a part of his heart. I seriously couldn’t stand him during the beginning and in other parts. I hated some of his actions and wanted to punch him multiple times. Thank goodness he had his own POV because I had to know what was going on in his head. Thankfully my opinion of him changed for the better. I hoped in the end he would fully redeem himself.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that’ll have you hooked until the very end!! It packs a punch and couldn’t have prepared myself for all the emotions I felt throughout. The secondary characters stole my heart as well and I’d love for Indie to get her very own book! I believe that certain people come into our lives and leave their mark for a reason. The title makes me break out into a smile and whenever I hear that word from now on i will always think of this story. If you haven’t already One-Clicked Buy it Today!! You won’t regret it!! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂
