Genevieve Westley lives inside of her head. Her only connection to life; her two best friends, her grandparents, and her heart wrenching emotionally driven artwork.

Finally stepping out of her comfort zone, a night out with her friends has her stepping into the arms of Lucas Alexander.

Lucas has been labeled many things; rock star, CEO, devastatingly handsome panty dropper.

When these two collide their electric chemistry has them racing towards their happily ever after, but is that enough?

Secret after secret bombards them, turning Gen’s peaceful existence to chaos and confusion. With more questions than answers will she give it all up or fight, even if it’s more than she asked for? 

The worst thing about this book is that it ended!!! 

Gen is comfortable. That’s the best word for her. She’s fine on money. Has grandparents that adore her. She rooms with her BFF’s and that’s amazing. She’s an artist (painter) and her career is perfect. She is stuck. She’s with Brad at the beginning of the book but that quickly fizzles when she realizes he’s done nothing but quickly kiss her and hold her hand for six months. She wants someone that actually wants her. Passion. 

In order to “get over” Brad her friends make her go out. She’s not all that into it but goes along determined to have fun. She feels someone watching her and finally catches his eye. Lucas…

Lucas is way more than meets the eye. He’s also had a very different childhood than Gen. He has brothers and a sister and a mom that adores them all. He’s an x-rock star still in the music business and he is HOT. Like seriously fine!! But he has his on share of demons.

Gen is going to have to break down and realize that she can love someone. That not all people will leave and betray you. Can she find that in Lucas? Will he be the person to complete her? Will she give Lucas her ultimate gift?

Lucas has father issues and a lot of guilt. He’s going to have to let go of his past failures in order to build something with Gen. With his business trust is going to be huge in their relationship. Will they find that in each other?

I LOVED the humor in this book. TJ Tims is FUNNY. The part where all the girls show up at Lucas’s house and end up in the back yard….the conversation between the friends had me laughing out loud! Then biting my lip in the very next HOT scene - WOW!

Definitely read this book!!! It’s GREAT!!!!

Raised in New Jersey on the shore, TJ began reading romance novels at the age of fourteen when she picked up Elda Minger’s The Dare. From that day forward she hasn’t stopped reading romance novels of all subgenres. While focusing on her career working in a corporate office and reading at night TJ somehow found herself married and pregnant when she paused to breathe between novels. After being laid off and giving birth to her son, she threw herself into being a stay at home mom.

One month her husband was very upset at her for spending forty dollars on books when she became “one click” happy, later that evening when doing the math she realized she spent FOUR HUNDRED dollars on books, silly husband somehow dropped a zero. Destroying the evidence since she was already placed on book probation, TJ decided to think of ways to curb her purchasing. The only way that would satisfy her active mind seemed to be exercising it by writing her own stories. A story turned into a novel, and a novel into a series. During the day TJ focuses on her household that is overrun with testosterone; one beefcake husband, one son that takes after beefcake husband, and two male dogs. In evening she taps away at her keyboard letting her mind play.
