When I married my husband, we promised till death do us part. Too bad only one of us meant it. Licking my wounds, I’m forced to take my son and move back home to start over. Also not in my plans is Kane Decker, my high school crush, still living next door to my parents. 

Yet there he is, in all his mouth-watering glory, determined to help me find the carefree girl he once knew. Kane makes me want things. And I’m not sure I’m ready to open my heart up again no matter how amazing his kiss is or how much I crave his skin against mine. He’s trying to change my mind, doing his best to convince me to let him in because this time he’s the right one. 

*Book One in The Decker Brothers Series*

 What a fantastic start to a new series from Michelle A Valentine.

I love a good second chance story - well, this one is more of a one that got away, then got rehooked tale.

And sometimes you find the right one at the wrong time.

 Kane and Janie needed to be apart before they could be together, and their coming together is sweet and lovely with a little heartbreak tossed in for good measure - I mean she really  married the douche of all douches and right from the start I needed him to get his come-uppance.

You can't help but want these long time crushes to get together, and with the help of a couple of little scene steakers, I spent a lot of the time reading The Right One with a smile on my dial.

I adored the other Decker brothers, and I can't wait for their stories.

A sizzling romance under wraps – what do you do when the sparks are too bright to hide?

There’s so much going on in Vicky’s life. A demanding job as the only female VP at a male-dominated company, good times with her tight-knit group of best ladies, and of course, her fabulous dating life. A committed relationship is somewhere near the bottom of Vicky’s list of life goals. A massive fan of new beginnings and the thrill of being swooned off her feet, Vicky has the perfect formula: date, for a limited period, and never exclusively.

Not many people go to sleep anonymous and wake up the next morning a worldwide sensation. With a voice that melts hearts, and a dangerously lethal smile, Ricky’s overnight fame means he can have anyone he wants, but the one he wants isn’t into a serious relationship. To make matters worse, pursuing her goes against his record contract stipulation to remain single.

Opposites don’t simply attract – they detonate.

When a forbidden sizzling affair sparks between the music industry’s newest heartthrob and an ambitious corporate world prodigy, it brings along an ageless question – would you give up your dreams for a chance with The One?

Vicky + Ricky.

They're part of the same circle of friends. They have these mega sparks and an amazing insta connection. But... Vicky doesn't do relationships, right? Our Ricky would be very willing ... But he's also about to be a huge rock star and the record company wants him single.
But he's not giving up on his dream girl...



You had me at ROCK STAR! ๐Ÿ˜

This book was adorable! I really liked reading it.
It was funny, cute, sparky, sexy, rock stary and a bit heartbreaking.
I didn't love his name. No idea why... but I can't take a guy called Ricky serious as a hot rock star! Patrick is his real name - the first one who ever called him Ricky as a grown up needs to be hit over the head with my kindle!๐Ÿคฃ
And I hated all those becoming-a-rock-star 'laws'. I would've never signed that contract. He's not a 17 year old boy band cutie. He's a grown man! He could've made it on his own! Grrr. I hated that manager lady at first.
But anyway. The story was really sweet and anything rock-stary will always be my favorite kind of book!

Can't wait to see what Kayla's story will be like next - By Fate!
BY CHANCE was an adorable and funny and sparky rock-star-y romance! Please run to your nearest amazon for your own Patrick - this one is mine! MINE!

I enjoyed the first book in the Poison and Wine series, so it was a no brainer to dive into book 2.
This is Victoria's book - she is the sister of Anna from book 1, and her rock star FWB.
But first - ugh, Ricky as a name for a full grown man just, I don't know, felt childish to me (unless it is Ricky Martin, as he just couldn't be called anything else).
And then we come to Ricky and Vicky - ummmmm
Don't get me wrong, I like them but those names together are like a primary school boyfriend and girlfriend.  But this is just my weirdness so ignore me for this hahah.
I liked that they were friends before his fame hit, and I liked the way they negotiated their way through that - though I was mad at Ricky for the way he dealt with managers and contracts and things. I am glad that he finally stood up to all that BS.

And there was also a "thing" that as soon as it happened I was waiting for the followup "thing" *insert eye roll*. Can we please get rid of that trope in alllll books (Sorry Sigal, this is my bugbear and I say his in every review with it).

I know it sounds like I didn't like this at all, but that is not true.  I did like it, just the actions and the tropey things I was not a fan of.

I am looking forward to the next installment of this series.
