This must have been a hard story to write, even though its a fictional story, you can't help but feel a strong element of truth in these pages.
I don't have an addictive personality and can't even begin to understand what an addict deals with on a daily basis, but you get a very good insight into the life of an addict.
We start Bodhi's story where his father stages an intervention in his life, and he begins a stint in rehab to help clear his addiction. I'd hop to think re-hab centres are as pleasant as Serenity Ranch sounds.
Bodhi has a very tough time as the poison begins to leave him, but the centre has all the help he needs.
Just loved Bodhi and kim's first meeting, and how they dealt with their feelings for each other, and Bodhi slowly recovered.
Kim and Bodhi had an instant connection, they might have met under the wrong circumstances but the heart knows what it wants and its pointless to fiht it.
I grew to love his parents, they weren't painted in too good a light but soon enough I felt i warmed to them.
The other band members were nice guys, we don't really meet them untih halfway through but they were there for him, stood by him.
We all need a friend like Daphne, your go to person when you need to share something or need a pick me up. Just what Kimberly needed.
It was a cute bad boy done good story, meeting an angel to kick start his life and not Blow up his ass, just because he's become accustomed to having everything and everyone saying YES! Not sure about Rebel, she seems a bit harsh, but she does makes the band 2nd guess themselves into being better.Read more ›
Bohdi has a privileged life with A-list parents and now his own success in one of todays manufactured boy-bands but he seems to be chasing more all the time and after finding solace in drugs, things are spiralling out of control. When he ends up in re-hab he has to face up to what he wants out of his life but for me his pursuit of Kimberley was a substitute for the drugs he had craved.
I liked Kimberley and enjoyed reading her POV much more than Bohdi’s, she had a depth to her that I liked but that all seemed to go out of the window where Bohdi was concerned. I just felt someone in her position, and I know this is fiction, wouldn’t put themselves or a patient in the situations she does with Bohdi. At times, I found the situations uncomfortable to read as the boundaries were crossed.
I much preferred the latter part of the book, it was more enjoyable and comfortable to read following Bohdi’s departure from rehab and found his situation with the band and their manager frustrating and infuriating. I wanted to shake Rebel and her pushy attitude so much. However, I still found some of the things Bohdi said to Kimberley would have set off alarm bells for anyone that works with recovering addicts.
Overall a quick read, pretty much an insta-love romance that could have covered a dark subject matter a little better but the romance though forbidden overtook the story. However, I am intrigued by the other characters we met and will certainly look for the next book to see where their stories lead.
Ashamed, scared & alone Bodhi finds himself at a Rehab clinic - it's his only choice. Not just to keep hs spot in VeeP, but also to save the love of his parents. Unable to accept the addiction he thought he could control, believed he could walk away from at time from, the reality that it had gripped him so hard frightens him to death. But even that's not enough as he fights the urge to score, not knowing how he can survive without a hit, as his body, mind & soul try to fight the battles that rage through him quite literally.
It's here he meets Kim, the daughter of the founder of the clinic & dear friend to his father. She is the light to his darkness, the angel to his horror & he soons finds that she is the drug of choice for he needs her like oxygen. The question is, can she see past his fame & past the title of addict - to love the real Bodhi, or will she destroy him & send him back to hell.
Kim can't believe who she has been assigned too - she was afterall a fangirl who dreamed wicked things about the lead singer of VP. Except she loathes the life the band members lead, the way they throw their fame away like it costs nothing, believing they are invincible. That is until she see's the real Bodhi, the man who is lost, broken & so desperate of help. She can't help losing her heart to him - loving him is after all so damn easy, but will love be enough, can she trust in the man who could shatter her heart into a million pieces.Read more ›
