Blurb

Xander

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be as the sexy, caring, wonderful man I’ve gone and fallen in love with. I never could’ve imagined a world where he was my everything. But with each passing day, the connection between us grows stronger, and the idea of a world without him is something I can’t imagine.

But Sean’s love doesn’t come without complications. As the older brother of my lifelong best friend, this new love has caused relationships to break down and communication to become stilted, and the one question that remains is: am I willing to give up the love and friendship of one for the chance of love and forever with another?

Sean

I didn’t mean to fall in love with Alexander Thorne, my brother’s ex and the number one prime-time news anchor in the country. I mean, no one could’ve seen that coming—least of all me. But that’s exactly what happened over these past couple of months: I fell in love.

That’d be complicated enough, I suppose, but Xander? Well, he fell in love with me too, and while it’s caused some major upset in the dynamics around here, I have to believe that a love this real can only lead to somewhere amazing.

This thing between us started out as a job, a friend helping out a friend. But after playing the role of Xander’s boyfriend, I find myself wanting the job full-time, because neither of us are playing anymore.

Headlines is the final book of the Prime Time Series and should only be read after book one, Inside Affair, and book two, Breaking News.

My favourite so far in this excellent rock band romance series

Starting From Here 500Starting From Here by Lane Hayes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Definitely my favourite one so far in this excellent rock band based series from Lane.

Part second chances, part fake relationship and redemption, this narrative oozes with feelings and incandescent emotional vulnerability between Declan and Tegan.

Former best friends who were turned into ‘enemies’ through manipulation and bad feelings, Lane skilfully navigates their relationship development while they’re on tour with their respective bands and I was rooting for them from the off.

While this book can be read as a standalone, I wouldn’t recommend it because there would be some of the subtle layers missing from the previous books.

I really appreciated how both Tegan and his band mate and best friend Justin slowly realised Declan wasn’t an enemy and that the drama was kept to a level which totally worked within the story.

Tegan and Declan reconnection came with loads of hot angry sex, something which Lane writes so very well.

But even from the first fraught encounter there is more there than just lust. The sense of something previous, a past that hasn’t been forgotten in spite of all the efforts to do so.

I loved these two so much, I wanted them to forgive the hurts and admit that they still wanted each other but they needed to go on their own individual journey first.

When they do start that process though my heart was singing along and I was smiling throughout.

There’s subtle humour laced with the feelings, the two bands mesh together into a substitute family and Tegan’s own family also has an important role to play.

I loved his parents just from the small glimpses we get. Declan’s mum isn’t as instantly likeable but I also understood her motivations.

The Epilogue is all ends up awesome and I’m dying to find out who book four will be about (the sneak peek isn’t in the ARC).

Family conflict drives this superb final instalment in the Prime Time series

image4-3Headlines by Ella Frank

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was a perfect way to round out this trilogy of books from Ella Frank.

Taken as a whole, I can see why the narrative was split into three books as the order of the main plot points definitely wouldn’t have worked as a single story.

All the suspense elements were dealt with in book one and provided the impetus for the remainder of the journey for Xander and Sean to fall deeper in love.

In Headlines we see that relationship solidified, there is absolutely no doubt by the end of this book how perfect they are for each other.

I loved how Ella dealt with creating conflict in this instalment. Family is so important to Sean and Xander’s previous relationship and best friend status with his brother Bailey really felt threatened by his reaction to finding out they were together.

The way that conflict is resolved also rang true and I appreciated it didn’t drag on and on into unnecessary drama.

As it’s an Ella Frank story, the sexual activity and emotional intimacy is running at 100% intensity. I felt the heat and the chemistry burning off the page.

And the Epilogue is seriously sweet! I would happily read more about these guys indefinitely.
