Publisher's Summary

He's been her ultimate untouchable desire.
Nothing says happy birthday like a rock god flying thousands of miles to surprise a woman he's never met. But that's exactly what happens to Gabi Smith when she gives her long distance best friend a flippant invitation to her laid back girls' night out. She never expected to turn on the dance floor and find Blake Kennedy's gaze holding her body captive.
She's his everything and he's never laid eyes on her.
Gabi means more to Blake than life itself. She's his strength, his savior, and the only person who helped to vanquish his demons. No one means more to him than his angel. So when things between them start to sizzle, he's ready to fight for the future he never thought he would deserve.
Skeletons from his past will threaten his only chance at love....
Blake has come a long way - with Gabi's help - to leave the hell of his youth behind him, but sometimes memories don't want to stay buried. Determined to stand on his own for once, Blake is willing to stretch the truth to keep his troubles from burdening the woman he adores.
Little white lies can create black holes in any relationship. Only time will tell if an Aussie with a heart of gold will forgive her bad-boy boyfriend or if the deceit will end his passionate addiction.

Rock Star Romance Reality Escape

This is a nice continuation in the "Reckless Beat" series. Each book focuses on a band member and "Passionate Addiction" shows the love story of Blake and Gabi. I liked that this couple built a "friend" relationship before becoming a couple. Their story is built on friendship, forgiveness, and trust.

This book (as well as book 1) is the type of book that I call a "reality escape". It's written well, keeps your attention, has likable characters, and yet is very predictable and has circumstances that feel a bit askew. Despite this, it held my in interest. Each of the characters have such unique personalities and this enhances the story.

The narrators read this book very well. I enjoyed the dual narration. Their accents weren't "spot on" but I can deal with that, however I get a kick out of the way D.C. Cole says the word "didn't". Most of us pronounce it like 'did-ent' he pronounces it like 'did-nent'. Very unique. I smiled every time he said it. Lol. 😋

Note: This book (and series) is definitely for adults only because of the sexual content and language.

My thanks to the author for providing me this audio book. It was a pleasure to review.

Rocker and Best Friend Become Lovers

The book begins with Blake in crisis...soon to be pulled back upon speaking to Gabor on the phone. A very interesting love story where the H and the h becomes friends first...with the h knowing secrets about the H not even his closest friends know. Problems with addictions Blake has depended on Gabi, who,lives in Australia but is a sop port to him by phone. Funny how they know each other for years before Blake goes to see her on her birthday.
Blake never felt like he deserved Gabi and this was the biggest part of their issues. Gabi was strong and when Blakes's return into his life and the way he dealt with her and failed to explain what was going on to Gabi their relationship fell apart.
I like that Gabi was stronger and didn't allow Blake to run roughshod over her. He was a great guy, but he had to figure somethings out on his own.
I loved the narrator's Autrailian accent..she did a great job with her emotions, pacing, timing and providing emotion. D.C. Cole has an incredible voice and sounds like a rocker..perfect.
This is the second book in the series and I have listened to the first book as well.mmHighly recommend this series!
I received a copy for an honest review.
