This book was scorching hot fun with a 6 string!

I must admit that I wasn't sure if I would like this one as much as the third book (Cody's story). I often found Nikki's character as over the top and even slightly obnoxious, at times, in the first book of this series. However, I am completely smitten by him, now!

Nikki knows a fun time when he sees one. And he never shies away from a chance to enjoy himself, especially if it's with a beautiful woman. So naturally, when his bandmate's girl brings her gorgeous best friend around, Nikki can't keep his hands off of her. He just never expected to want more.

Trixie likes the way things are in her life right now. She owns a busy nightclub and is both independent and free to do as she pleases. Especially, when it comes to men. So when she and Nikki's fun escapades begin to feel like something more than just a fling, she is hesitant to let it go any further.

Of course, the no-strings attached relationships never work as they're supposed to...

Jealousy is only one problem. The couple also have a tough time going on with their lives without the other nearby. Missing their casual partner is definitely not part of the deal. Soon, Trixie and Nikki have to make a choice to try to have a real relationship with one another or just end it, entirely.

This book was so much better than I thought it would be. Nikki's character really surprised me. I was half-expecting Trixie to be one who wanted something more out of their arrangement. However, Nikki showed a side of maturity (albeit a small one) that I wasn't expecting. I was absolutely on board with this pairing.

In closing...
Another fun ride with rock stars and smoking romance. I am impatiently waiting for the next installment of this series! Five suns!
