When do you stop running from pain and fear?
When do you let emotions embrace you and heal you from the inside out?
For Wayne Priest~~~self professed ladies man, hardcore man whore of the rock band, JINKS, love is something that doesn't exist, he's all about the chase and a good time until one woman...
Melody Kruse~~~her life as been a revolving door of heartache. Relationships isn't something she's good at. She keeps her heart guarded for fear of it getting broken or losing those she loves. She holds her feelings at bay because in her mind, she's a runner, that's what she's good at, running is what she knows.
When things spiral out of control for Wayne and Melody, she runs from it. She's frustrating and obstinate, pushing Wayne to dig in and fight harder, harder than he's ever fought for anything, other than the pursuit of his music.
"STOP RUNNING!" is his advice to Melody. "LET ME LOVE YOU AND YOU LOVE ME!!" He puts it to her in such a way that makes her almost believe that she is capable of loving Wayne and allowing him to love her...almost...
Regardless of whether or not we see the good in ourselves, there is always that one person who sees our worth. They see the fear and pain behind our eyes thus we allow them into our heart, trusting they won't hurt it intentionally.
My Melody by Tiffany J West was an emotional ride. Moments of sheer frustration and 'can I reach into this book and choke Melody' moments kept me on my toes. The exchange between Wayne and Melody was electric and hot and for a ladies man, Wayne Priest sank to his knees the second Melody's lips landed on his. How can you beat an alpha male falling in love?
So let me start of with the things I liked about this story. The plot was good. Playboy rock star meets free spirited older woman and now has to convince a woman to love him when previously they came so easy to him. I love stuff like that. I also like Wayne. He may have started off a bit rough, but he quickly grew on me. From his first visit to his parents house and interaction with his niece I was a fan. The supportive secondary characters were also good. I like still getting to see the couples from the previous stories and how they played a part in this story. The writing had a tenancy to get a little over board in describing how hot Wayne or Melody were from the other's eyes, but I was able to get through it.
Then there were the things I didn't like so much. First was the insta-love vibe. They were in love with each other from 19% into the story and I didn't at that time see why either of them thought they were in love. Their interactions to that point had primarily been about their great physical relationship but nothing else. Their relationship ultimately built to the point were I could see the love, but not as soon as they were professing it. Then there was Melody. I had an issue with her in the previous books and the fact that she let her sister take a job that she never should have been forced to take to provide for them and never tired to seek help for her depression if for no other reason than to take the burden off Harmony. Then there was just her overall treatment of Wayne. I know that she was scared to love and lose, but I never got to the point where I felt she redeemed herself. She made a lot of selfish decisions and in the end I just never warmed up to her.
That being said the story telling was good and Wayne was great which allowed me to finish the story and think it was pretty good overall. I just wish the leading lady hadn't been so selfish so often.
Melody Kruse does not do relationships or love. The only person she is even close to is her sister Harmony.
Wayne and Melody meet and have a quick meeting of the bodies not even getting each others name. Only thing is, for the first time, they both have lingering thoughts of the tryst. Fate has a way of stepping in and they aren't such strangers after all.
My Melody is fast paced, sexy, fun filled with a rollercoaster of emotion. It is well written and I love the characters of Wayne and Melody. Wayne is open, fun loving, family oriented, and a caring man. A rock star with a heart. Melody likes to have her fun but she is closed off with her emotions and keeps people at arms length to protect herself. She has been in a stalemate with life the last few years and needs to break out. There is more books in this series but this is my first and now I need to catch up. Good read. Great job T.J. West.
I was given an arc for a honest review.
Ok, somehow I goofed and totally missed out on reading Judging June and Harmony's Healing. I don't know how that happened. Oh well, just one-clicked both on KU so all good. I'll be reading them over the holidays.
Although I didn't reading the two previous books in this series, at no time did I feel lost in the story. Yeah there were times when other characters were mentioned that had me wondering but I never felt like I was,issuing anything pertinent to this book. It can be read as a standalone.
I enjoyed reading this and read it in one sitting. I loved Wayne's character. He had me swooning a few times. Melody's character annoyed me at first but that quickly changed as I got know her character more and learn her struggles.
The only thing that fell flat was the Scarlett situation. It seemed like an afterthought to add unnecessary drama to the story. It just didn't work for me.
Regardless of my little hangup, this was a great quick read and I can't wait to delve into June and Harmony's stories. You can also bet I'll be on the lookout for Lyric's story as well.
