Source:  I received this book for the purpose of an honest review.


Years ago, Rolling Stone magazine dubbed the nine collective children of the most famous band in the world “Rock Royalty.” Now all grown up, the princes and princesses are coming back to L.A.’s Laurel Canyon to discover if love can be found among the ruins of a childhood steeped in sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.

One touch will start a fire…

World-weary band tour manager Ren Colson leaves his London business behind for a stay in Southern California, never expecting to wake up beside Cilla Maddox. Cilla Maddox—who in the years since their last meeting has turned sexy as hell. But she deserves more than a man hardened by long nights, dark roads, and too many faceless women.

One night will change her world…

Cilla Maddox not once imagined she’d see the bad boy of her dreams again. But then he’s sharing her air, her home, her bed. Though he claims he has no heart, she wants it to be hers. Can she convince him that the flames that leap between them might signify forever?



Cilla was back at the compound where she grew up a child from the rock group Velvet Lemons.  Glad to have a place to call home after she escaped the memories of what happened in her house.  But what was Cilla to think when she woke to find a handsome man in her bed, but not just any man, her adolescent crush and fellow lemon kid, Ren.  The lemon kids were fresh with grief for the woman they considered a second mom Gwen.  But even in death Gwen was still pulling strings and getting the kids back together.  Could Cilla get the hot Ren out of her mind?  Would Ren be able to hold back his new strange attraction to the young woman he used to know as a child?

This was a fun read, I have many questions about things in the book that were teased through out the story, but I do know this is only book one, so I hope to get the questions answered.  This is still a great steamy read.  This book has more believable sex scenes, it was nice to see a man that cared to know the feelings of the woman, before entering this new relationship.  I enjoyed the growth of the characters and the strength they showed throughout the book.  A great read. I am looking forward to read more from this author.
