Kylie Wolfe and guitarist Wyatt McRae have been bad for each other for the last several years, but it’s impossible for them to end their toxic push and pull. Not when their attraction is constantly fueled by lust and proximity—she’s her older brother’s Lucas’s assistant and Wyatt is his best friend and band mate.
So when Your Toxic Sequel makes a move to record a new album in Nashville, Kylie decides to make the latest break with Wyatt official by getting the hell out of town. She’ll spend a week in New Orleans. A week to immerse herself in the Mardi Gras scene. One week to not think about the last time she was in New Orleans, seven years ago with Wyatt. Seven days where she won’t have to see Wyatt every day just to fall ridiculously in love with him all over again—where, if she wants to, she can have a normal, no- strings attached fling that won’t end in heartbreak.
Too bad Wyatt ruins everything by showing up, as gorgeous and demanding and goddamn awful for her as ever.
Wyatt refuses to let Kylie give up on him. Not without reminding her why they both fell so far and hard in the first place. Not without making her savor the good memories and what could be their last chance with each other.
Note: This is a spinoff from the Devoured series.
Hmmm…. there is absolutely something to be said about a sexy, alpha-male rocker, or at least there is for me. Kylie Wolfe and Wyatt McCrae had tried staying apart. No matter what they said or what they tried, something always brought them back together. Kylie knew in her core that Wyatt was bad news for her and she was determined to do everything in her power to separate herself from him. She even took a spur of the moment vacation to distance herself from him. She new he was toxic for her and she wanted to move on with her life. Wyatt had other ideas. He wanted to try start over and fix the things wrong with their relationship. He was determined that no matter what the cost he would not take no for an answer.
“I fucking love you, Ky. That’s about all I need to know. We can work through all of the other shit as long as we have that”
This is a wonderful continuation of an amazing series. I love Emily Snow and all of these characters. We knew that Kylie was fun-loving with a daring attitude, and I was glad we were given the chance to get to know her on a more personal level. She’s been hurt time and time again. She loves him, but believes that he refuses to change and her heart simply can’t take another break. She will not allow herself to be devastated and disappointed by him yet another time.
Wyatt? What can I say about Wyatt? Something about that man simply oozes sex. The bad-ass rocker with groupies at every tour stop. The self-assured playboy with a heart and a soft spot for Kylie. I swooned at the fact that he knew what he wanted and wasn’t going to be swayed without giving it everything he had. He did just that, he gave it his all. He knew they had issues and was well aware that he had major issues. No matter what he did, he couldn’t get Kylie out of his head. He loved her. Unfortunately, he was out of time.
This is a story of a love that started years ago. They both tried to leave multiple times but something always brought them back to one another. They always ended up right where they started, in bed. The attraction between these two sizzles… Emily draws you in on the first page and leaves you captivated until the very last paragraph. I needed to know how this was going to end because I needed them to have their HEA. Her writing style is one that leaves you vested in her characters and words. I was only disappointed in the fact that it was so short. I really didn’t want it to end and wanted more of these two and their story. I can’t wait for the next installment in this super hot series!!
“Lucas,” I say, trying to keep my voice calm, “why is there a huge chunk of money missing out of your business account?”
Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars isn’t just a huge chunk of money, though. It’s several years of my income, and it’s gone from an account that I’m supposed to be monitoring.
The man who answers me a few seconds later doesn’t sound like my older brother at all. He sounds broken, like a wounded animal. “It’s nothing. Mind your own fucking business, Kylie.”
The fear that has seized my chest for the last hour and a half suddenly shifts and now it feels like poison rippling through my body, wrapping around my bones and slithering through my veins. “Not on your life, Lucas. It’s Sam, isn’t it? Are you paying that bitch off again? Where’s Sienna? What the—”
I hear the faint click, and I know that I’ve lost him. I know that whatever it is my brother’s gotten himself involved with has only gotten worse since he and Sienna took off for Atlanta.
And I feel like I’m dying inside.
For several minutes, I sit silently on the bed, inhaling the faint, masculine scent Wyatt left behind. I know what I have to do. I know that I have to call Sienna to check on her, but I also know that I’m not going to like what I hear.
By the time I work up the nerve to call her, I’m crying.
“Please tell me he didn’t?” More than ever before, I want to be wrong. I want her to tell me that she’s still with Lucas, and he hasn’t kicked her out. But, I’m not wrong.
Her voice sounds like she’s a million miles away as she answers me, “Why does it matter?”
It matters because I wanted my brother to take care of her—for him to be happy. It matters because I was the one who convinced her to go along with him. I was the one who told her that taking Lucas up on his offer was all worth it.
But judging by the way Sienna sounds today, that was the only thing I was wrong about.
Emily Snow is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the erotic romance series Devoured, which includes Devoured, All Over You, and Consumed, as well as the new adult novel Tidal. She loves books, sexy bad boys, and really loud rock music, so naturally, she writes stories about all three.
