Review Source: eARC
Twenty-three year old Meagan Chambers always wanted to be a musician. 

Her parents wanted her to be a doctor. 

She decided to risk everything to follow her dreams…

Starting over in the city of her dreams, her hard work and dedication had paid off, landing Meagan a coveted seat on one of the country’s top orchestras. 

She was doing what she loved. 

And everything was perfect.

Until she met Ashton Harris. 

Lead guitarist and backup vocalist to the chart-topping Silver Knight, Ashton was unlike anyone she’d ever met. With one glance of his crooked grin, she knew he could be her undoing, but determined to succeed, she refused to let anyone step in her way … 

Not even him.

Because falling for someone like Ashton Harris could ruin everything.

4.5 Bar Review

He looked edible and once again robbed me of my breath.

Megan Chambers didn't expect to see the man that had shattered her heart in her new life centered in New York. Ashton Harris knew exactly what he was doing when he waltzed back into Megan's life, and turned it upside down in just a few short weeks.

Megan wants to be a musician, play in symphonies, and live her life the way she had it planned with her new found beau, Douglas. Yes, it's Douglas, not Doug! Her parents want her to live up to their dreams of her being a doctor. She doesn't feel like that's what would make her happy in her life that is already a hectic mess. Moving to New York was the best thing she felt she had done with her life several years prior when her heart had been shattered by the famous Ashton Harris. When he shows back up in her life weeks before the New Year, she is torn between what she knows she wants, and what she knows is right.

+Ashton Harris wants Megan Chambers back. When he hurt her, he didn't know just how bad it had been. With trying to balance his busy rockstar lifestyle, trying to win "Meg" back, and show her that Douglas isn't right for her, Ashton can't seem to win. When family drama appears in his life, and is broadcast across newspaper headlines, Megan rushes to him believing that it is because of her that he has fallen back into his old ways. She is shocked when she arrives at the hospital to learn that none of the tabloids are true, and thus starts the beginning of their relationship that Ashton, and Megan have longed for. Is it what it's all cracked up to be in the end, though?

An absolutely perfect ending to a great book! The characters are very well developed, and I can assure you that you will fall in love with Megan, Ashton, Leah, and Douglas. As the characters went through being involved in some way with the rockstar superstar, Ashton, it is obvious that Lynn Rider really put her time, and effort into the back story of the characters, as well as their own current stories that makes Numb one of my favorite books to have released this year. 

I really enjoyed reading this book. This was my first "rockstar" read, and I am really looking forward to knowing what happens in the second book. 

I started down the dimly lit hallway when a large beefy arm shot out across my chest, blocking my way. I was momentarily stunned by the firmness and unforgiving movement when I ran into it full stride.

“You can’t go in there,” a deep rumble of a voice said sternly.

I followed the tree limb sized arm where it attached to the largest African American man I had ever seen. He stared down at me, looking like he was prepared to fight. I looked at him quizzically.

“You can’t go in there.” He gave me a pointed look that told me there was no room for argument. “It’s occupied,” he added.

I stepped back and nodded, ready to turn on my heel when the bathroom door swung open, lighting the dim hallway. My eyes landed on the black combat style boots and then traveled up the length of the long powerful legs that were fitted so perfectly in a pair of worn jeans. His long fingers held tightly around the denim near his crotch as he was still in the midst of pulling up his zipper as he strode from the men’s room. Embarrassed for gawking, my eyes quickly darted to the pair of muscular, tattooed forearms before flitting to the brunette who stumbled from the same bathroom doorway, clinging onto him. My eyes landed on his and my heart plummeted to my stomach.


I'm a wife and mother of two beautiful children. Being from sunny south Florida, I never spent much time inside reading. I decided to give it a try with a highly talked about trilogy and found myself devouring the pages like a mad woman. Although I knew I was hooked with that trilogy, the hundreds of books I read in the following year proved it. 

Through my love of reading sparked the inspiration to try my hand at writing. I wrote two full length novels as a hobby and only through my husbands encouragement did I ever consider self publishing.
