Innocence was never meant for the addictive…
Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.
Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.
However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.
During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.
Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.
This is the one Sea Breeze book I was dying to read. Who doesn't want to read about bad boy rockstars?
Krit Corbin had it all, he is the lead singer of Jackdown, women flock to him, its easy, it works. He has a great group of friends and a sister who adores him. For Krit there has always been something missing in life. His childhood and past aren't pretty but life goes on, his band and the hordes of women are all he needs.
After moving to Sea Breeze, Blythe Denton is thrust into a life she knows nothing about. Her childhood was so sheltered and tortured that being naive and innocent to the world around her is visible on first glance. Moving into her new apartment she is exhausted and all she wants to do is sleep, the people living above her are constantly partying. When she finally works up the courage to approach her new neighbours to ask them to keep it down, she doesn’t expect to form a friendship with these guys. After all who expects a slutty male band to be friends with someone like her, when they are polar opposites.
"She sees you. Not the guy the others see. She sees you. The guy I’ve known all my life. The one you don’t share. That guy. She saw him when she first looked at you.”
Krit knows how innocent Blythe is, and he knows he can’t go there, but it can't hurt to be neighbourly and help her settle in to Sea Breeze. Soon they are spending every night together eating dinner and talking about their days, friendship is all that either want.
Will the chemistry that sizzles between them go away once they both get to know each other truly?
"Blythe made me feel whole inside. I’d never felt whole. There was always this emptiness. I had tried everything to fill that dark ache inside, but nothing had ever worked. Until Blythe smiled at me.”
This book was HOT. I didn’t expect it not to be because it was Krit but I never imagined it would be THIS hot. This is by far my favorite book in the Sea Breeze series. The way these two characters intertwine themselves into each others lives was so beautiful and raw that you couldn’t help but love it. Next up is book 8, Hold on Tight and I’m sure Dewaye is going to take us on one hell of a ride.
