His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation...
Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She's the fuel for every song he's ever written-each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band is on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this "kid" turned into every inch the man she's always needed...
Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey...until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks-or rather storms-into Jasmine's life. Sarge's return shouldn't affect her this way. He's her best friend's much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.
But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it...
Sarge Purcell has reached a level of Rock Star status few will ever achieve. Jasmine could of never expected that her inability to see Sarge as more than her best friend’s little brother was the driving force behind his success.
Jasmine’s life hasn’t really happened as planned. She expected a music career that would take her away from Hook, New Jersey. Now she is a factory worker trying to make ends meet, stuck in the life she wanted to avoid.
Sarge returns to Hook, visits his sister for the first time in years, and comes face to face with Jasmine. He thought years and distance would of stopped his attraction but he can’t seem to break Jasmine's draw…so he decides to go for everything he has desired and more.
Sexy, passionate and emotion provoking, Crashed Out not only brings the heat but has a wonderful story to boot.
A little bias, being a Jersey Girl and all, I recommend Crashed Out as a hot romantic read. Hook is a fictional town created by Bailey but she does capture the essence of a few Northern Jersey industrial towns.
I received this ARC copy of Crashed Out from Entangled Publishing, LLC - Brazen in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 7, 2015.
