Product description

Product Description

This book contains substantial adult content and language. It also contains topics that may be disturbing to some readers. This includes topics of drug use, rape, and other significant violence. Read at your own risk.

If you choose to read this book, please take all necessary precautions. Your reading device may go up in smoke, you may lose sleep, you may have the urge to throw things, and you may never want it to end. Johnny is a dirty talking, hardened character with a past none of us would want to dream of, but he’ll find his way into your heart and won’t let go.

THE BAD BOY: I’m Johnny. An ex-con with a bad attitude and a controlling demeanor that somehow made the women flock to my bed but never my heart. It was unavailable for possession.

THE TEMPTATION: She was just supposed to be a two day hookup. But one taste of her and I knew I was in danger of never getting enough. She had her own demons to contend with, and dealing with my own was hard enough. I won't allow temptation to take control of me.

THE SENTENCE: I'd given myself a life sentence a long time ago, and she made me want things I wouldn't allow myself to have. Giving into it just might destroy us both.

Bad Boy Johnny get's out of prison and moves to Florida to be closer to his sister. His support through his arrest and prison time. Johnny time incarcerated has changed him and left its mark. He damaged tortured. Johnny good looking and women flock to him, he uses them as a release.
That is until Bex comes along, the hot rock star who is rising. He wants her but she hates men. Bex doesn't want to be another in a long line of women. The chemistry between Johnny and Bex is off the charts. The relationship is on a spinning axis constantly changing. Both are damaged and haunted by their pasts.Johnny and Bex are both under the impression that they don't deserve to be happy. The story does broach some harsh subjects matters but help you understand the characters pasts and actions.
Gritty and dark read but very enjoyable.

*****5 Stars*****

What a book, a badass female lead and a bad boy who just got out of prison. Both with major personal issues that they don’t deal with, but deflect, put them together and you have one hell of a book.

This book had me hooked, no fairy tale love story, but a story full of history’s that can break a person. How either of these two are still standing and living is beyond me.

The Chemistry between Johnny and Bex is HOT, nothing simple and sweet about these two at all and it made the story that much better.

I will be defiantly going in search of more work by this amazing talented author.

1.0 out of 5 stars An alpha male and an mean female who deem love is a weakness. 2 July 2016
By annmric - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Main characters: Bex and Johnny.
Story was told in alternating POV's. The story was about an alpha male bad boy and an abused foster girl that denied themselves love because it only brought forth pain. Included in the story were past references in italics. Past references in the form of nightmares.
Johnny was in prison for two years and had been out for two, he had recurring nightmares about Jill.
The story was sexually driven. The sex became routine and redundant. This story was about two musically talented characters that sought one nightstands as a form of coping mechanism.

I'm not a huge fan of arrogant alpha males and this story was a huge indicator for my dislike. I tried to remain open-minded, but Johnny's character treated women as a sexual tool to stem his pain from the loss he suffered in his past. I get his pain, but not to the extent of the way he chose to cope with that pain. It came across as an excuse. I need sex, but only for a one night hook up. No strings attached therefore no emotional connection. Yet, when Bex gained his attention, all of a sudden his rules were dismissed because it seemed they had a connection. He sensed a deep rooted pain that drew him in.

I had issues with the form of coping mechanisms used by both characters. The way the characters behaved angry and blasé bothered me. They could deal with physical aspects of sex, but not the cuddling or tender kisses. Apparently, this signified they cared for each other beyond the great sex. Yet, Bex allowed sex bareback and that usually indicates intimacy and being exclusive. The characters had no clue what they wanted. They contradicted themselves every step of the way. First it was only one night hook ups that led to three nights of sexual marathons. Second it was sleeping over and sharing a bed. Third it was cuddling with pillow talk. Finally, something to label them as friends with benefits.

Their back stories were not plausible. The way Bex acted bitchy because of her foster upbringing did not match her coping mechanism for sex. Johnny unable to fall in love because he watched Jill become numb from the abuse. In both cases both characters should have been pulling away from sex since sex was the underlying issue that brought about their denial of finding love. I'm having a hard time understanding why these characters shut out people for issues that were no fault of their own. The only faults made were the decisions made after to close people out and become angry and arrogant.
Johnny was an emotionally immature thirty-six year old driven by sex. His qualities included muscles, tattoos, played guitar, wrote songs, bartender, and a sex fiend.
I found these characters exhausting to read about. The constant reminder from them stating I don't normally act this way and what am I doing. This feeling is so foreign to me. These phrases wore down my patience.

Just another story about characters that deem love a weakness. They were afraid to love because then they would have to share secrets about their past. It was a taxing story to read. I could not wait to finish even though it was predictable I finished by skimming.
3.0 out of 5 stars OKay Sentence 18 March 2017
By Angela - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a ok read. Johnny spent time in prison after getting mixed up with the wrong people who threatened his sister so he did what he had to do. After he gets out of prison he gets a job in a bar where the band Jaded Regret played at. Bex is the lead singer of the band and only cares about her music. She will never allow herself to fall for a man she had a horrible childhood and doesn't trust people. Both Bex and Johnny have some serious issues and they both use sex as away to forget their problems. Both of these character's had good and bad flaws and in the beginning I didn't like neither one of them. What I really didn't like was how Bex treated her bandmates and if I were them I would have quick. This was the first book in a new series too me. This was also the first time reading this author. This book was well written with no errors in spelling or grammar. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read! Everything you love! 2 November 2015

"Two Storms who come together as one."

Have you ever had a book couple that checked all your boxes of expectations? Well I can say that with Johnny and Bex, you will check 'all apply'.

Johnny- sexy, cocky, rugged, broken, scarred but beautiful deep down inside and out. ~Rockstar~

Bex- beautiful, tough, sassy, broken, closed off. ~Rocker Girl~

When these two meet the fire ignites and you will be hooked!

This is a whole new box that LL Collins has stepped in and she has written a RAW and SEXY AS HELL READ! A MUST READ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

WARNING-----You will need a a cold shower after reading this! It's HOT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 29 July 2016
By Shelly - Published on

A great read! I love how these two come together and how they each change the other for the better. Both Johnny and Bex have had it hard in life. Johnny ended up doing things he never wanted to in order to protect those he loved, but wants more and fights for it. He never expected rocker girl Bex to show him what he's been missing in his life. Bex was raised in foster homes and didn't have a good go of it at all. She refuses to let anyone in her life, but Johnny changes all of that. Their love sneaks up on them and shows them how life can be so much better than they expected.
5.0 out of 5 stars The baddest of bad boys, and the greatest of good guys! 28 December 2015
By Angela Voss - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh, Johnny...The baddest of bad boys, and the greatest of good guys! That sums up Johnny, for me.
I have been a fan of LL Collins since I read Reaching Rachel, and the rest of the Living Again series. While this story is a little darker, and sexier, than her other books, the electricity is still there between the characters on the page. It is still, in the end, a great love story, pain and all!
I wasn't expecting some of the darker aspects of the story, but they were very well written, with respect for those that may have gone through such ordeals. It made me love Bex and Johnny, even more.
I HIGHLY recommend this story, but for mature audiences only.
