My Review: *sigh* I just love books like this, that pull me in and don't let go until the final page...and then I just want to start over and read it again. If you can't tell, I liked this one!! Unlike the other two books in this series, this book did not revolve around the race track. No, this book takes place in Malibu and instead has a rock star, Seger, who's completely burned out and more than a little jaded. He's escaped to Malibu under his real name and is hiding in his mansion that he just recently bought. What he doesn't realize is that his mansion was such a good deal because they split up the property of the mansion from the guest house and sold them separately. He's not thrilled to find his seclusion isn't going to be quite so alone when he discovers Ashley living on the property. The good news is that Ashley is blind so she can't see who he is and his secret hiding place is safe from the paparazzi. We met Ashley in one of the other books (I can't remember which) when scaffolding collapsed on top of her and almost killed her. She was in a coma for a few months. That was two years ago and she still hasn't recovered from the physical or emotional trauma of that. She's spent the last year completely unlike the outgoing party girl she used to be. She's just not the same person that she was before the accident. So when she falls and ends up suddenly blind on top of everything else, it's more than a little devastating. You can't help but feel sorry for her. Seriously, how much can one person take? It's been just a couple of weeks since the accident that left her blind when Mel moves in. He's really not happy to have her there, but as he gets to know her and her incredible sense of wit and humor, he can't help but to like her. They develop a friendship...which they both desperately need. These are two very lonely people and they are so good together. I love that they developed such an amazing friendship before it moved anywhere close to romance. This romance moved really slow, but I loved every minute of reading it. They have a fantastic repertoire between the two of them and every time they are together the fun dialogue just jumps off the page. This was just a good book. The characters were really likable and well-developed. I liked every bit of the story line. You get to see life for Seger as a rocker and how bad it's gotten, and you get a feel that Mel was a bit like him before her accident. They both have somewhat wild pasts, but they're becoming different people. I liked that they had that similarity...you know they aren't going to someday get bored with each other. They are a good fit. Then there's the suspense story line. You know who the bad guy is from the very beginning, but still the suspense was fabulous. She is absolutely crazy and you just never knew where her character was going to go next. Overall, it was just an AMAZING addition to this series. Definitely one going into my re-read pile. I don't know what Dee J. Adams has up next, but I sincerely hope there's going to be more of these! I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

I loved this book. A lot of action and suspense. Not to mention a great love story between a blinde women and a man trying to hide his true identity

4.5 stars. Loved Ashley. Loved her spunk in battling back after yet another horrifying setback to her health after it was sabotaged through no fault of her own. Gagged every time I read the name Seger, as for whatever reason, the voice of very talented musician Bob Seger is like nails on a chalkboard for me. However, Mel Summers, aka Seger Hughes, was a very likeable character and his needs and weaknesses and Ashley's dovetailed perfectly. Loved that we, the readers, got to see these two were in danger, yet THEY didn't know it. Loved the slow build of sexual tension between Ashley and Mel. Loved Roamer, and that the author wasn't afraid to kill off a character we'd come to strongly like. My only complaints was it took perhaps a little too long for the characters to find their way into the bedroom, and that some seeds (the sneezing dog) planted in the early sections weren't continued all the way through. But those are quibbles. This book fits as part of this author's series, but works perfectly as a stand-alone. Really entertaining and fun read, and includes a character with disabilities, something we don't often see.
