    I won a ARC copy of this book off of Facebook, and I'm extremely glad I did. This story had me hooked from the very beginning. This story is mainly focused on Arianna and her interactions with bad boy Bryden. In this story Arianna is one half of a female rock duo with her best friend Jayde's being the other half. While playing an unexpected gig at a local bar, Arianna and Jayde get thrown the deal of a lifetime, to be the opening act for a famous rock band. While touring, Arianna finds herself falling for the rock star Bryden who has a bad boy image. Bryden has been burned in the past leaving him un-sure how to handle Arianna and when Arianna is forced to face her past things heat up and become highly tense and emotional. I won't give away any spoilers but the dynamic between Arianna, Bryden, and the other character will have you not wanting to put this book down. Along with Arianna and Bryden, Savannah Stewart will have you falling in love with all of the characters with the exception of maybe one or two. There are moments in this book that are raw, emotional, extremely steamy, funny, and sometimes frustrating; but, they come together to make a great story. I look forward to reading Jayde's story and any other book Savannah writes .

    You just have to love these two girls. Arianna Moore and best friend Jayde Kimberland have formed a two girl band called “Daughters of Darkness.” They play at local bars and are having a great time. How fun would that be, to do something like that with the girl that has been your bestest friend since you were in foster care together as children.On one such night they are offered the chance of a lifetime, an opportunity to make all their dreams come true. An offer to go on tour to open for the popular band “From Yesterday.” Their lives are forever going to change with this tour.Bryden is the bad boy of the band, complete with a women or two or three in every town. He wants Arianna buts she is leary of him. She tries to put him out of her mind by dating someone else but it is not working. She thinks about him constantly. He thinks about her constantly. She is worried that she will just be another notch on his bed post. He says ” there will only be you.”Arianna has some serious emotional baggage from her teenage years that she needs to deal with before she gets serious with anyone. Bryden makes a big crack in her emotional armour and the fallout from this almost has devasting consequences on the band and the tour.I think that Arianna and Jayde have been there for each other for years. Jayde has been her rock. But Arianna is stagnating, she is stuck and not healing. Hopefully Bryden will be the one to finally get her to deal with her issues so that she can go on and live her life. It is time for her to let go and continue on. Bryden is capable of being her knight in shining armour if only she is brave enough to trust in him and let him in.I thought this story was very well written. I was crying big buckets of tears as she tries to valiantly to cope with her heartbreak. She is such a feisty character, full of spunk and courage but hurting with memories and misplaced guilt. The author did a great job evoking many types of emotions from her readers. And then she leaves us with an unforgettable snippet of the next story. Huh, I will be marking it in my calender for sure.for more reviews viait welovekink(dot)com

    Arianna (Behind the Words book 1)By - Savannah Stewart********I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review*********This is Arianna and Bryden's story. Arianna is in a rock duo with her best friend Jayde. At a gig at a local bar Arianna has her first encounter with the sexy bad boy Bryden."...I'm a starved man, sassy girl...I want-no I need a taste of you..."Arianna and Jayde are given the opportunity of a lifetime, to go on tour and be the opening act for From Yesterday. Bryden just so happens to be the front man for the band. "...I told you that wasn't the last night you would see me..."Arianna keeps herself closed off to most people and has major walls built around her heart. Bryden has been burned badly in his past which has led him to live the bad boy rocker lifestyle. Can Bryden help tear down Arianna's walls and help her heal from her past? Can Arianna put Bryden's heart back together? I absolutely love this story. I love that the female character is a rocker as well. I love her personality and her feisty side. But this book is full of incredible characters that you come to like and want more of. Savannah Stewart really packed a punch with this story. She makes you laugh, makes you cry, and leaves you wanting more! Loved this story so much that I give it a Nerd Alert A++ or 5 stars! Jayde's story comes out this year. I can not wait. I see a possible love triangle in the making!!

    Allrighty I am writing this review seconds after finishing this book and I can tell you I am still wiping the tears out of my eyes.This was one heartbreaking story I tell you! Sometimes I just wanted to give Arianna a good old kick in the behind because she kept pushing Brayden back and not let him get close to her. But after a while you'll understand why she acts the way she does, you'll already hear snippets here and there but it only near the end that you"ll get to hear to entire story. Besides the fact that they are all rockstars; the themes in the book where all very real and could have been about anyone in real life... Cancer, alcoholism and grief are things we all get to see in our lives on a daily basis and some people handle it better than others. Arianna handled it very badly at times and it took her over 4 years to even start coping with it, it took not only Jade but most of all Bryden to get her out of that funk and start dealing with life again. Oh and Bryden is such a caring and sweet man, he is the perfect guy for Arianna - they are the perfect couple! Make sure you have tissues ready when reading! Sanne ~ Scandalous Book Blog

    So how many of you have read the typically rocker story? We all have, but let me just say this story is different… and I LOVED it!!!! The typically things that you see within those story isn’t in this one. Yes, Brayden is a rock star, but he’s not what people think. Arianna is a kick ass rocker chick who has lost someone close to her. As much as she tries to deny her feelings for Brayden, it’s not possible. Their chemistry is on fire.I loved this story. It’s well written, and not to mention it has a boy named Cash! (I kinda have a thing for guys named Cash since a major charcter in my series shares that name.) This story will have your heart soring, breaking, and being put back together. It’s a fabulous five star read, and I can’t wait for book 2!!!!

    Wow, just wow. This book had me hooked from the very first page. I love a good love story. When Arianna Moore decided to play a gig at the local Underground Bar she had no idea that night would change her life. That is when Bryden Rowe walked into her life and he decided he was going to stay if even she didn't want him too.These two are both fighters of demons in their pasts. Can they help one another get over the past and move on? I hope so.There were some bumps Arianna and Bryden had to deal with before they could be happy. The rest of the band mates in The Daughters of Darkness and From Yesterday all became a big family. It was good that you got to see into their lives as well.Great job Savannah Stewart and I look forward to reading more of your books.

    I loved this book! I've read several rocker books & this one is different than the others. Arianna has lost the most important thing in her life & just can't seem to overcome the guilt & pain. She's put up walls to push people away but what she learns is that this close knit group will fight to tear those walls down. This story is about love, loss, & learning to heal. Well done Savannah! The teaser for book 2, Jayde, has me very excited!!

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Arianna is one half of the rock duo Daughters of Darkness. The group is made up of her best friend Jayde and herself. They are performing at Club Underground. While there she meets one hot and sexy guy with grey-blue eyes that send electricity right through her. She is not the type of girl that goes all ga-ga over a guy, so pushing by him she goes back up on stage to finish their set, before the first break. During the break the girls decide they wanna dance to the music that is playing. While dancing Arianna feels a set of hands come up around her waist, as soon as his hands hit her skin, she knows that it is him by the electric current she feels running through her. Not bothering to turn around and check for sure she starts to grind against him, letting the music take control of her body. Realizing things are getting too intense, she takes off down the hallway to the lounge bathroom. Splashing water on her face to cool down, she hears the door, thinking it is Jayde coming to check on her, she doesn't look up until she hears the door lock. Looking up she sees Mr. tall dark and sexy has followed her into the bathroom. Without hesitation their lips lock against each other. He picks her up and pins her against the wall of the bathroom stall. Leaning back he smiles, while unzipping her corset down the front. He gets it half way down, stopping to look at her for a signal to stop. Arianna just smiles with a look daring him to keep going. He unzips the corset the rest of the way letting it fall to the floor. Looking down he says wow you're pierced, that is so hot. She looks at him smiles. As things are about to progress, there is loud banging and screaming on the door. Arianna open the door screams Jayde, are you okay. Go away Jayde, I am fine. Come on open the door don't make me get Max with the keys. Letting out a sigh, Arianna unwraps her legs from around his waist and bends down to pick up her corset, putting it back on. She says would be nice to at least know your name, since you won't see me again after tonight. He smiles at her, my name is Bryden and we will see about that. As she opens the door, Jayde looks at her, are you okay Arianna. Arianna walks past her saying come on we gotta get back on stage. Jayde then sees that Bryden was in the bathroom with her. Jayde's mouth is gaped open in shock. Arianna grabs her and drags her out of the lounge. Arianna do you know who that is ? Arianna shrugs her shoulders, nope. Oh my God Arianna are you that out of it. That is the lead singer of From Yesterday. Arianna is thinking oh great, thats all I need right now. As they come off the stage, their manager Sadie is jumping up and down with excitement. Telling them that a manager from a major group was there and liked what he heard. Want to sign them as the opening act. That him and some of the band members are waiting for them in the lounge. Arianna already knows who is waiting in the lounge and that is what Bryden meant by we will see about that. He has another thing coming if he thinks I am going to be his bedmate on this tour. As soon as they walk into the lounge, she sees him sitting there with a wide grin on his face. She wants nothing more than to wipe it off his face, however knowing how hard Jayde and she have worked for this break she sits and listens. It will be 12 concerts in various cities. Seeing the excitement on Jayde's face, she can't say no. So she agrees to do it. They show up in Atlanta 2 weeks later, to start going over all the dates for the tour. Seeing one of the dates is in Indianapolis on one of the worse days of Arianna life, Jayde asks her if she will be okay with it. Fearing that Arianna may revert back to her old ways at dealing with things. Jayde and Sadie are the only two people who know that Arianna lost her twin sister 4 years yearly on this date, and has had a really hard time dealing with it.

They grew up together in the foster care system along with Ashleigh Moore, Arianna’s twin sister. Arianna and Ashleigh were abandoned as babies, while Jayde’s parents were killed in a car accident. They were all-fortunate to live together with a loving motherly figure until they aged out of the foster care system, and then later moved to an apartment. Unfortunately, Arianna suffers a tragic loss in her life that causes her to build walls to guard her heart. Not only are the walls protecting her heart, but they are also preventing anyone to become too intimately close to her. Arianna’s only vice to help her forget about the demons brought on by the tragedy is her music. “I wish I wasn’t like that, though-a lot of people think I’m a bitch and honestly I don’t give them a reason to think any differently, you know? I guess I’ve been burned too many times over the years so I’ve built up this exterior that screams, don’t mess with me.” - AriannaThen one night while playing at The Underground, Arianna meets Bryden Rowe, the lead singer of From Yesterday, and she feels an electrical spark so strong she feels her knees buckling and her body inflamed. The only problem is Bryden has a reputation of being a man-whore and Arianna knows she cannot handle that type of person in her life, but that does not keep Bryden from pursuing Arianna and almost succeeding the evening they meet at The Underground. Luckily, Jayde was looking for Arianna and stop the possible “one night stand” she may have had but not before Bryden told Arianna that, he will see her again."...I told you that wasn't the last night you would see me..." - BrydenBryden’s manager, Jake, was so impressed with Arianna’s group, The Daughter of Darkness, the record label made them an offer to be the opening band for From Yesterday’s tour. While Arianna and Bryden are on tour, they discover more about each other and walls start to fall around their hearts. Arianna also discovers she is not the only one fighting demons from the past.“You look like an angel an angel…You’re saving me from myself…” - BrydenWill Bryden be able to be Arianna’s saving grace? Will Arianna and Bryden bring down the walls guarding their hearts, for a possibility of love? Arianna is a RAW EMOTIONAL ROCKING LOVE STORY that will capture your attention immediately and will have you on an emotional roller coaster of LOVE, COMPASSION, SADNESS, ANGER, DISTRUST, FORGIVENESS, and FRIENDSHIP.

    ARC PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEWArianna Moore is one half part of the female rock duo The Daughters of Darkness, the other half consist of her best friend Jayde Kimberland. The two met within the foster care system, Arianna and her twin sister Ashleigh were abandoned as babies, Jayde's parents were killed in a car crash when she was two. Lucky for the three of them they ended up in a really great home with an amazing loving mother figure. They stayed until they aged out the system and found an apartment together.Arianna suffered a tragedy in her life that would forever change her life completely, she has built walls around her heart and she keeps herself guarded. Her only saving grace has been her music.While the duo are performing at The Underground a local bar in there hometown, the two are offered an opportunity of a lifetime to tour as an opening act for the big name rock band, From Yesterday. Let me mention the lead singer is Bryden Rowe, none other than the same man Arianna had an encounter with in the ladies room. Arianna did not know who he was at first, she discovers his true identity from Jayde when she catches them together in the ladies room.I told you that wasn't the last night you would see me.Bryden Rowe has a reputation in the music industry as a bad boy, only those close to him know the real Bryden, his band mates Cash and Riley. He's been burned in the past and grew up in a broken home, like Arianna music was there for him. I loved Bryden he's not your typical rock star ass.When the tour begins Arianna finds herself falling for the bad boy Bryden, she knows deep down she shouldn't but something about him draws her to him. Bryden himself also seems drawn to Arianna he knows all about her walls, he wants to break them down one by one, he knows her heart is shattered into a million pieces and wants to be the one to piece it back together.If I had a choice I would never give up on her. She is the air I need to breathe and the only person who has made me feel alive.Will Arianna let Bryden into her heart? Will she revert back to her old ways and destroy not only her dreams but Jayde's in the process?Can Arianna help heal Bryden's heart? Will two broken souls find solace in one another?Not only is this book beautifully written and told, there are secondary character's you will fall in love with and want more of.I loved the story of Arianna and Bryden, an I look forward to Jayde's because let me tell you with that little preview we are given in the back of this book, I can assure you it's gong to be a bumpy ride.You have to endure the storm to see the rainbow.

    Arianna Moore is a rock singer.With her best friend Jayde Kimberland they build the up-and-coming female rock duo The Daughters of Darkness.While they are performing an unexpexted gig at a local bar in their hometown, they are given the opportunity of their lifetime - to go on tour as the opening act for the famous rock band From Yesterday.During this evening Arianna has a hot encouter with a handsome and sexy-as-hell bad-boyish stranger in the ladies room.Little does she know who he is in fact at that time, but it just so happens that he is Bryden Rowe - the lead singer of said famous rock band.>>> "...I told you that wasn't the last night you would see me." <<<While touring, Arianna is having more and more difficulties to resist Bryden, although deep down she knows she shouldn't fall for this bad boy.But she is guarding herself for a reason:Arianna and her twin sister Ashleigh were abandoned as babies and even after that tragedy struck once more and made her build walls around her heart and hardly let her open up to anyone. Music always was her only escape.Bryden, on the other side, also suffers from his past:He had been burned badly which made him build up a reputation as a manwhore bad boy. Only his band mates Cash and Riley know the real Bryden. Like for Arianna, music was the only thing for him to hold on to.This is Bryden's and Arianna's story - will they open their heart for one another to find the solace they both desperately need?~*~*~I loved that not only Bryden is the lead singer of a rock band, but also Arianna is a rocker herself! She is feisty, sassy and can take care of herself.Bryden is unique - you may assume he is your typical rock star, but he surely is not. I fell in love with him - and my heart broke for him every time Arianna turned him down.Apart from Bryden and Arianna this story has so many more loveable characters - if it's Cash or Riley, Jayde or Poppy - I want to learn more about.Jayde's book will come out this year. The last few pages of this book are a preview - no, a serious TEASE of her story that leaves you wanting more!To sum it all up, ARIANNA - BEHIND THE WORDS #1 is a beautiful piece of writing!It is emotional, intense, raw, hot and also funny - an incredible love story not to be missed!

    Review to follow.Updated 2/26/14See full review: http://fallinginfall.blogspot.com/201...This book was an enjoyable read. Arianna “Aria” is in a band called the Daughters of Darkness with her best friend Jayde. Based on the background, these two met in foster care at a young age and became family. The formed the band and it has been a sort of saving grace for the pair. At one of their gigs Aria meets this guy who she has instant sexual chemistry with and decides to have little fun in the restroom. The mood is cut short when Jayde comes looking for Aria to finish their set and Aria leaves the unknown man behind. After their gig is over, their manager Sadie greets them with some interesting news: The manager from the band From Yesterday wants them to tour as the opening act. The shocking part of it all? The man that Aria was about to do the deed with is the bands main singer Bryden. Aria, while happy to have this gig, has doubts that it isn’t because of her talent that she is wanted on the tour but that Bryden has his eyes set on her. Seeing Jayde so ecstatic to have this opportunity she agrees to do the tour and lets Bryden know that nothing will happen between them. Aria has a ton of demons that she is carrying around with her and although she has the support of her best friend and manager, it’s not enough to deal with the stress of being on the road. On top of dealing with her stuff, she is constantly fighting her attraction to Bryden who just can’t seem to leave her alone. Eventually Aria is going to break but will she have managed to push everyone away or will she have someone to catch her when she falls? You’ll have to read the book to find out! I only gave it 3.5 leaves because there were some things that I didn’t like about the book but overall it was a good read. I am not too much into the insta-love and I wish that the author would have built up the relationship a bit more but overall I enjoyed this and can’t wait for the next book about Jayde. Just from the prologue she already has me waiting!!

    “the bomb-dot-com”When I started reading this book it seemed much like other romance stories I’ve read. Boy meets girl, instant connection, one of them fights the attraction and so on and so on. However the more I read it started to take on a much different plot line. The two main characters Bryden and Arianna both have “demons” or issues from their past that have wounded their psyche, just like all of us do. However unlike other romance stories there isn’t the typical drama entwined into this story which was a definite plus! Don’t get me wrong, there is drama but it’s different, more realistic.“He had fallen onto his knees in front of me. . .”The supporting characters are also wonderful. Both Arianna and Bryden have loyal friends who I suspect have interesting stories of their own. Jayde is Arianna’s best friend who seems to have her head on her shoulders. She’s been through a lot with Aria, they have been friends all their lives. Cash, Riley and Jake are Brayden’s close friends and know him very well. They are loyal so they keep some of his secrets but pull for his success with Arianna. The electrical current between Arianna and Bryden transforms into some steamy sex scenes making this book pretty hot. Did I mention that they are all rock stars? Oh yea, add that bit of sexy in and this book has a lot to offer. Savannah Stewart for the most part keeps the story from Arianna’s point of view but there are some chapters from Bryden’s and Jayde’s points of view as well, which I always enjoy. I think it’s important to see what is going on with the other characters; it rounds out the story for me and adds so much more to the book. I give this book 4 stars with 3 hands down the pants and look forward to reading Jayde’s story which should be out later this year (2014).

Bryden has been burned badly in his past which has led him to live the bad boy rocker lifestyle. Can Bryden help tear down Arianna's walls and help her heal from her past? Can Arianna put Bryden's heart back together? I absolutely love this story. I love that the female character is a rocker as well. I love her personality and her feisty side. But this book is full of incredible characters that you come to like and want more of. Savannah Stewart really packed a punch with this story. She makes you laugh, makes you cry, and leaves you wanting more! Loved this story so much that I give it a Nerd Alert A++ or 5 stars! Jayde's story comes out this year. I can not wait. I see a possible love triangle in the making!!

    I loved this book and this is not my usual genre. I can not wait to start reading the next one. Arianna is part of the rock duo The Daughters of Darkness and she hasn’t had a easy life. She grew up in the foster system and her life hasn’t gotten any easier the older she has gotten. One night while The Daughters of Darkness are playing at a club she meets Bryden, he is absolutely gorgeous and she wants him as badly as he wants her. After the show her manger comes to them with the offer of going on tour and opening for From Yesterday, a major rock group and she can hardly contain her excitement, until she walks in to meet them and sees Bryden sitting there. Turns out Bryden is the lead singer for From Yesterday and she can’t help but wonder if The Daughters of Darkness got this opportunity because of their talent or because Bryden wants a bed-buddy for the tour. She is determined that she will not fall for him, that he is just another rock star playboy and she refuses to be just another notch on his belt. Bryden loves how sassy Arianna is and how she’s not afraid to speak her mind. He wants to be with her but can he show her he is not the man whore that everybody thinks he is and that he only wants to be with her? Can he break through the walls that she has built around her heart?

    I loved this book and the characters! You will be gripped to the pages until the very end. Arianna is part of a rock band. She writes in her book but doesn't tell her band mates. She has inner demons that hurt her today. She enjoys singing with her bestie Jayde. Things happen where she meets the sexy Bryden and she doesn't just want to be a notch on his bed post. Bryden has his own inner demons. He sings in a band and finds Arianna to be sassy and sexy and wants her for himself... if he can get her. I enjoyed the banter, the sexiness and friendships in this book. It just wasn't solely on Arianna and Bryden. You see the band mates, their friendships and more involved and I enjoyed that a lot. I love watching Arianna grow and accept things. I loved watching her grow from Bryden and seeing her open up and enjoy his company and what he did for her. I loved how she was sassy and sexy. She is a fighter and a strong girl with an amazing voice. I loved who Bryden became. I loved that he accepted his past and wanted to look towards the future. He was sweet, kind and loving to Arianna and loved how he wanted to prove to her he really only wanted her...If you love bands, sexy band men, sassy sexy feisty women, drama, pain, love and more then you will adore this book by Savannah Stewart. Well done!5 stars!

    It was awesome to finally read a rocker novel with normal people! Savannah Stewart creates a beautiful novel about working through pain and loss, and learning how to have faith in yourself and the people around you. Unlike many other rock novels (which, I have loved--don't get me wrong), Arianna isn't filled with corruption, drug use, and meaningless sexual encounters. It is a look into romance with a side of the music industry, complete with a few excerpts of lyrics that provide extra character insight.We see the love story evolve between Bryden and Arianna/Aria from the first meeting. Their interactions are often steamy and enticing, and you definitely can't stop reading! Aria has the common misconception of playboy rocker, Bryden. Bryden thinks she is a closed-off angry chick that won't let anyone close. Watching these two find their way together while navigating their careers is very swoon-worthy.The story flows seamlessly through their ups and downs. They've both had tragic pasts, but while Bryden has worked through his, Aria hasn't even begun. Bryden is a man we can all lust after: he's patient, understanding, loyal, and oh yeah--completely HOT! Finding love and success in the music world while battling inner demons is the premise of this book and you won't regret starting this series!

    In this book you are following Arianna and her journey of healing and it is done in such a fresh and lovely way. The build up to the story, really sucked me in.I loved the story of Arianna and Bryden, he has the image of the bad buy rock star and Arianna doesnt want to be another notch on his bed post.I loved the fact that Arianna is a rock chick singer too and not just a groupie, she is very talented which puts her on the same level as Bryden.As the story unfolds you see that Bryden is a really good guy, who has been burned by his ex fiance, leaving him un-sure how to handle Arianna, all he knows is he wants more with her and has to show her that hes worth the risk.Arianna is forced to face the heartache of her past, and Bryden is there along with her best friend Jayde to help her through this very difficult time.Arianna sees a different side to Bryden than the one she expected, things heat up and become highly tense and emotional.This book is emotional and raw at times and you will find your self with a stomach full of knots. Arianna Behind the words it is beautifully written, it is hot and extremely steamy, funny, and sometimes frustrating, but it all comes together to give you a fantastic read.The secondary characters are awesome, Bryden's band mates are funny, and i cannot wait for Jaydes story. I recommend this book as really good read!

    Savannah Stewart has a way with words! Let me tell you! Arianna blew me away. Arianna and her friend Jayde get the opportunity of a lifetime. They have always been all about music and they want to make it big. They’re offered an opportunity to tour with the big rock band From Yesterday. Arianna is determine to make this a purely professional thing though. Even though one of the band members, Bryden has his eyes on her, she’s going to keep him at a distance. The problem is he’s slowly breaking down her walls and she’s terrified he’s going to find out all her dark secrets. Secrets that only Jayde knows and some that nobody knows. Bryden seems to be the type that just goes from woman to woman without a care, but when he sees Arianna he considers actually being in a relationship. She’s fiesty and independent. He likes that. She doesn’t seem to want to have anything to do with him though, but he’s going to keep trying. The battle of wills between these two are both hilarious and exhilirating! This book will give you a wide array of emotions. I will warn you that parts of this book may make you cry, but it’ll be totally worth it! Bryden is my new book boyfriend!

    Rock OnArianna is in a band with her friend Jayde. Her last relationship ended on a discordant note, with her fist in Jeremy's face and the skank he was "romancing" fired from her bartending job.Six months after the breakup, a handsome stranger sets Arianna on fire and calls her Sassy Girl. Arianna is shocked when she finds out he's Bryden, a famous rock star.Arianna and Jayde are from Louisville, Kentucky. I loved this description, which is spot on:"…we love the city’s character, every section of Louisville has its own flavor. But our favorite part of town is a neighborhood called The Highlands. I love the nightlife in the Highlands, because everyone stays true to whom they are, it’s like a big mixing pot, everyone has their own style but they interact no matter your own."Savannah Stewart's Arianna (Behind the Words) is a fun and exciting romance. I loved the peek behind the scenes in the music industry.

    The moment that Bryden and Arianna met there was chemistry. Once Arianna found out that Bryden was part of a Rock Group she would be touring with she decided to stay far away from him. She did not need to be part of his string of flings. Just wasn't gonna happen. They both have had things happen to them in their pasts which makes them protect their hearts from hurt and pain. But what they do not realize is what the heart wants the heart gets. Bryden realizes that he is ready to love again and be a one woman man because she is worth it. He just has to convince Arianna to give him a chance. Bryden is such a sweet heart and I love how he slowly breaks down the walls around her heart. This is a sweet and steamy romance that will have you wanting more. Once you start reading you will not be able to put it down. Just grab a glass of wine or cup of coffee and enjoy the ride...

    <3.5 stars>Arianna has emons to deal with. A guilt which can't let go of. Bryden has his own demons too. What happens when both collide. It's story bout fixing,healing and finding love where you never imagined. Ari's dream has come true but what happens when Bryden is there breaking your wall. How do you deal with emotions.This book was sweet,humorous,emotional and yes intense and unpredictable. I never imagined it would happen in this book. When you think wow the problem is solved BOOM next moment something else. This was what I liked the most. So if you love rockstar romance, emotions that is intense you are going to love it :)

    While I did find a few things that nagged at my OCD while reading, I truly enjoyed Arianna's story. I laughed, I cried. One of heart break, loss, love and sorrow. For some time may heal all wounds, while others it just makes it a bigger gaping whole. I found myself able to relate with Arianna when it came to her sister, and perhaps that added to the story for me. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where Jayde will go!
