Loyalty is part of a spin-off series from L.P. Maxa's "Devil's Share" series. This new series focuses on the children of rock stars. This is a series heavy on the drama, heavy on the sexy times, decadent and delicious, and you can't look away. These characters get into all kinds of complicated personal situations but you get sucked along as they try to make sense of things.
Twins Cash and Crue Matthews are as close as brothers can be. Cash would do anything for Crue, so much so he lived a lie - a huge lie - for over a year. Cash doesn't know who he's angrier with, himself for doing it, or Crue for asking. Either way, Cash feels like crap. Then, Mason Maxwell's sweeter than sin daughter, Katie Cadence, drops into his life and Cash has a new purpose. But...how will she react to his secret, and can he risk losing her by telling the truth?
Katie Cadence's parents have treated her like she'd evaporate in the rain. True, her beginning was so tragic the news media covered it for years. But, damn. She wants to break free and take chances. When she's banished to the Devil's Share compound, she expects more of the same, only to find the Devil's Spawn know how to live, and Katie's all in for spreading her wings. Who's offered to give her the guided tour: Cash Matthews. Falling in love wasn't on her list of firsts, but when it hit she has no choice but to go with it.
Forbidden Song (Hearts of Metal #5) - by Brooklyn Ann
Brooklyn Ann's "Hearts of Metal" books are very character-driven and are less about rock star excess than honest emotion. The heroines in these stories are very different but fierce and aren't easily manipulated. The men in this series are wildly different, but are either very self-aware, caring toward their ladies, or quirky and honest.The romance in these books develops very organically and make the stories lots of fun.
Womanizing rock star, Cliff Tracey represents everything that has been forbidden to Christine Mayne, which only makes him a greater temptation, especially since she discovers he’s so much more than he pretends to be.
After having one of the worst experiences a young teenager could endure at the hands of cruel musicians, Christine Mayne's rock star brother Quinn tried to lock her away from the world. She had to fight to live her life, go to college, get her master's and enter her PhD program. Now, she's determined to complete her research on group dynamics by touring with Bleeding Vengeance, even it means deceiving her brother and lying to the band's fabulous lead singer, Cliff Tracey.
Cliff Tracey hates being manipulated, lied to and deceived. He'd know, having gone through a string of exes who had done just that. When he thinks he's found a kindred spirit, and a beautiful babe to boot, imagine his surprise - and disappointment - when he learns she played him so she can tour with his band to complete her PhD. When he finds out why, he knows he's in double trouble because Quinn Mayne will kill anyone who touches his sister, and Cliff Tracey has all sorts of plans for Christine Mayne that involves more than either of them ever expected.
Kissing Vicious - "Hearts of Metal" #1
With Vengeance - "Hearts of Metal" #2
Now along with these two new books, I have a few favorite re-reads. I love Olivia Cunning's "Sinners" series and her "Exodus End" series. I find these books super entertaining and the sex scenes super hot, sometimes gross, sometimes funny, but every scene is always tailor-made to each couple and their personalities. My favorite couple in Cunning's "Sinners" series is Eric and Rebekah. Eric is described as being part Mr. Romance and part Mr. Porn Star. I love Eric's cheesy and goofball sense of humor, his emotional honesty, and his devotion to the woman he loves. I'm so glad Olivia Cunning gave this couple three stories, including one wedding story in her wedding anthology.
