 Blurb
They were married but never kissed.

That night years ago never had consequences…until now.

“I wasn’t into the love bullshit and I didn’t really believe in forever between two people.’’
If I had my way, I would have never seen Maxen Walton again, the womanizing

drummer of Kinky Shine.

When I met him in college he was already going through girls as if they were disposable. I had always hated him. Yet, for some drunken reason I ended up marrying him in Las Vegas. That night, right before I puked in the fake flowers and left the tacky chapel was the last time I had laid eyes on him.

Until my boyfriend asked me to marry him.

Now, I was in LA trying to get a divorce from my husband without the press hearing about it.

What I didn’t expect was that my famous husband affected me and that getting to know him would change a lot more than I ever planned.

“All I saw now was Lark, always and forever out of my reach, always driving me crazy.’’

I had only ever met one woman who equally drove me crazy and made me want her
until I forgot my name.

Lark Hardin.

And I married her one crazy night in Las Vegas.

Freshly out of rehab and trying like hell to get back in the game while convincing my best friend I wouldn’t relapse, seeing my wife again was the last thing I needed for that.

Life liked f*cking with me, though.

Here she was, so sexy I would damn myself to be inside her just once, but she wasn’t here for me. She was here to get a divorce so her perfect boyfriend had free range to marry her.

She still hated my guts on the sole principle that I was a womanizing f*cker, but maybe she would open her eyes and see beyond that part of me.

I just hoped it wouldn’t be just for the sex because this woman had always been my weakness.

She had the power to destroy me.

“I’d spent the better part of my life hiding behind my bright smile and loud laugh, pushing everything away by using sex, but that was over.’’

**For readers over 18. Can be read as a standalone but if you want the full Kinky Shine experience don’t miss the first book.**

MY REVIEW

Maxen Walton has known for over 4 years that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. He’s head over heels for his wife, Lark – a woman he’s never even kissed and who apparently hates him. Now that she’s in town looking for a divorce, he’s forced to face the fact that this unconsummated marriage may be the one thing he truly cares about. With pressure from his band to stay clean, and the sudden excitement & curiosity from fans & the media wanting to know about his marriage, Maxen is more than frustrated.

I was looking forward to this book after reading book 1. I will admit that this book didn’t thrill me as much as Dex’s story did. For one, there was a back and forth between tenses in most sentences throughout the book, which made reading a lot more taxing.

Though the book didn’t go into much detail about Maxen’s addiction, it did capture the harsher, less glamorous side of fame where privacy & trust were concerned.

Overall, I enjoyed the plot, and look forward to the remaining band members’ stories.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
