Haunted by a kiss.

With his destructive marriage behind him, Ryan Bennett can no longer deny his insatiable attraction to the one woman in control of his future. He needs her. Craves her. She’s the only glimpse of happiness through the building drama in his life and yet one drunken kiss has pushed her further away.

Tormented by what’s at stake.

Leah Gorman’s management contract states she can never act on her feelings for any members of the Reckless Beat band but Ryan has always owned her heart. No matter how long he’s held her captive with his deep soul and easy friendship, he’s off limits. End of story. If only her heart would get the memo. She can’t resist him. Even when their attraction gets in the way of her job.

The price of love is high. Is it worth the cost?

With Leah’s career on the line and Ryan’s reputation in tatters, ignoring their attraction may prove safer than risking everything they hold dear. They have to decide what matters most—their years of friendship, or a chance at love that will destroy them both if they can’t make it work. 


Leah Gorman has been Reckless Beat's manager since the beginning. She has dedicated herself to making them a success and the band has truly become her family and beloved friends. Ryan Bennett has been her best friend and her secret crush for years...well, at least she thought she was keeping it hidden. Ryan was married so was not only off limits due to that, but also due to her job contract and non fraternization policy. His wife had issues, but so did Ryan...having his own secret feelings for Leah...and now he is getting divorced. But he and Leah have been struggling recently due to some misunderstandings and a drunken kiss that obliterated their easy going friendship.

Leah struggles so much with what she wants and what she thinks she can have. She is strong, capable, organized, anxious, and tries to stay in control. But she is also sarcastic, playful, and has a big heart that craves love and happiness. Ryan has always been seen as the good, dependable, charming member of the band. But he has been struggling too dealing with his impending divorce, his issues with Leah, and new pressure put on him by the label. But he is trying to keep everyone happy and find a way to his own happiness that he is finally ready to fight for. But Leah is strong willed and is also trying to do what she thinks is right for everyone involved. And there are several situations that are out of their control.

Temptation, denial, secrets, hiding, social media manipulation, external pressures, and expectations all take their toll. There are so many road blocks in the way to admitting their feelings and trying for a real chance to be with the one they love. They have strong feelings and chemistry, but so much is also at stake. Their friendship, the band, her job, and relations with their label, as well as some otherspeople could all be affected by their decisions.  The story has some twists and turns. Their hopes are brought up, only to come crashing down again. There is plenty of drama and angst. The media is closely watching and ready to exploit them. It is a convoluted situation with no easy answers.

This is finally Leah and Ryan's full story as they navigate through a myriad of issues. They will have to figure out what they might have to sacrifice and figure out how hard they will have to fight to win their chance at love finally...and a lot of that might even be fighting each other since they are both people who do not like to hurt others. And right along with them are their band family Mitch, Mason, Sean, Blake, and their mates. They are a self made family. They tease, taunt, and fight with each other. But at the same time they support the others and will fight anyone that threatens their own. I love this group's dynamics and interactions, and getting to see a bit more with them all.

This is supposed to be the last in the series, and fans will be glad to finally get Ryan and Leah's story. But hopefully we might see some of these characters pop up again...or the next generation.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
