My not-so-secret affair with romance novels
After years of bad relationships and a cheating ex-fiancé, twenty-eight-year-old Mia Martinelli prefers healing her patients’ hearts on the Cardiac Care floor rather than risking having her heart broken again. But that all comes to a screeching halt when caring for the head roadie for Runaway Train puts her into the orbit of drummer and Latin Lover, AJ Resendiz. After a scorching weekend of steamy passion, Mia’s intention of getting out with her heart unscathed is challenged by the stud with the wicked sense of humor, especially when he wants to continue seeing her. But when the harsh reality of AJ’s hoard of female admirers sends her insecurities into overdrive, Mia bails, leaving him handcuffed to his bathroom shower.AJ never imagined that after two weeks of the best sex and female companionship he’d ever experienced, he would need rescued by his band mates from his shower prison. Although he tries to forget the sensual brunette whose curves made his mouth water, AJ can’t get her out of his mind…or his heart. Months later when he finally seeks Mia for answers as to why she left, nothing could prepare him for their life-altering reunion.Can AJ prove to Mia that regardless of the women after his body, his heart belongs only to her?
I’m a huge fan of book bands, rock stars, and especially the men of Runaway Train. I liked Mia and AJ together. It was a nice touch that Mia’s family liked AJ on his own merit, even before he and Mia got involved. I also liked that she was a nurse and both of them could speak another language. Talk about muy caliente! It’s always fun to see witty banter between the main characters. I think relationships are generally happier if you can have fun and laugh with one another.
I enjoyed Jake’s story in Music of the Heart, but everything pretty much faded away when I started reading about AJ. This book is hot. Pair him with Mia and a limo and you get an inferno! This story hit all the bases and touched all my emotions. If you’re a fan of rock gods, and Katie Ashley’s Runaway Train.. you definitely need to check this one out!!
