With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire. Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships. Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?
This one gets another five stars, loved the whole story even though there were moments I wanted to shake Ayd, I could see why she was doing what she was doing. Especially when we learn her whole back story. Jet is a pretty good character too, well written with depth and made me like him, he took a little longer than Rule but he worked for it and I love him now.  I loved that they had their moment in Rule and they struggled to move on from it. Either move forward separately or to move on together.

I loved that it's written from each characters perspective so you see both sides and get a whole story instead of inside just one person's head. Meanwhile the story got to advance while giving each character a chance to grow and develop.  Jet had some seriously deep legitimate fears and after meeting his dad, I so don't blame him.  He struggles with living within the tight boundaries he's setup for himself due to his personal home life and I can totally see why he struggles with the boundaries Ayd tries to put up.

Ayd had a pretty rough life, constantly doing all she could to keep her family from falling apart especially because of the town she lived in she had a narrow definition of what she was cut out for. The past came back hard for her and I don't blame her for being so controlling even though she was breaking her own heart in the process. She hadn't forgiven herself, nor did she think she was worthy of love and because of it she hurt herself and Jet.  I loved that Rule, got in Jet's face after his little move on Valentine's Day, yeah that was a bit of an a**hat move Jet.  There are a few moments in the book where I wanted to push Jet off the stage, because well he earned it. But like Rule, he drags himself back from the brink of ain't shytness and makes you love him allover again.

The dynamics of the relationships were great to read, to see even though their story was one book ago, that Rule & Shaw were still working out the kinks and setting a great example for their friends. Jet's reaction to Ayd was great and their love was beautiful to read.  I just couldn't get enough of either of them.

This is a great follow up to the breakout Rule and I loved reading the interwoven stories and seeing the other characters and how they interacted with Jet & Ayd as well as seeing their stories be continued.  The development of new stories was also done well and in a way that made you want to read the next story. Of course I already purchased the next one. *Don't.gimmie.those.looks*. It was awesome reading this one and I have no regrets.
Get it Read it Love it!!
Happy Reading
