Noah knows he destroyed something precious the night he chose to betray Kit, but he’d rather she hate him than learn his darkest secret. All he has left is his music. It’s his saving grace, but it doesn’t silence the voices that keep him up at night. Chasing oblivion through endless one-night-stands, he earns a few hours’ sleep and his bad boy reputation.
When a media error sees Noah and Kit dubbed the new “it” couple, Kit discovers her chance at the role of a lifetime hinges on riding the media wave. Wanting—needing—to give Kit this, even if he can’t give her everything, Noah agrees to play the adoring boyfriend. Only the illusion is suddenly too real, too painful, too beautiful…and it may be too late for the redemption of Noah St. John.
I am not big on drama, heartbreak and angst, but this story was so well written and beautiful I could not stop reading. I love this series and would highly recommend this beautiful, heart wrenching, amazing book.
It took me a while to formulate my thoughts enough to write this review. I loved the writing, but the way that Noah acted toward Kit several times was almost too much for me. So many of his issues could have been solved if he would have shared his secrets with someone or just talked to people in general. I don’t know how Kit put up with all his crap and still loved him like she did. When Noah was not being an ass he was a really good guy and it gave you glimpses of the man Kit fell for. These were the parts of the book that kept me turning the page to see what happened next. Once he finally talked to someone and truly let Kit in it was a whole different story and this is what made me fall for the story.
A review copy was provided by Netgalley for an honest review.
You’ve been very clear, Noah. Don’t worry, I’m not getting the wrong idea. I know you don’t want me. She trembled, her hand fisting. “How about you fight for me for once?” Not giving him a chance to answer, she shook her head. “You don’t trust me with your secrets, you mess with my head, you make me feel ugly and unwanted , and you ask why I won’t fight for you?” Anger smashed into hurt, the jagged shards splintering through her. “Eff. You.”
Why can’t you see me like I see you?

About the Author
I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated frequently).
So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.
I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.
