Pro quarterback, Ethan Christopher thought he had found his home when he met rock musician, Mia Devereux. She was the welcomed distraction in his football-focused life.
Things may not have been perfect. Their individual careers made being together difficult. Her touring. His away schedule. As her success grew, they spent more extended periods apart.
But at the end of the day, he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Only her.
When Mia met Ethan, she felt a connection unlike any she’d ever felt. She gave him more of herself than she thought was even possible.
But she knew it wasn’t enough. There was a lot she didn’t share, couldn’t give him.
An event two decades in her past made sure of that.
Those demons that she’d so carefully tucked away wanted out. As Mia struggled with the stress of touring and being apart from Ethan, her defenses weakened, allowing the demons to fight their way to the surface, leaving her in a vulnerable place. A place where bad choices were made.
Choices that both of them will regret.
Can Mia and Ethan’s love survive her past? Or will it fall apart under the weight of her choices?
Mia sighed when she felt his presence behind her. She always knew when he was close. “Ethan, I don’t want to talk about it,” she warned, still staring at the beer bottle.
“Good and bad, Mia. That’s what I signed up for. I can handle this.”
She turned on him, fire in her eyes. “You may be able to, but not me. So I am choosing to not deal with it,” she said with a loud sigh. “I want a happy time here. I don’t want to talk about depressing things. I need this time to get me through until Christmas. Can’t you see that?”
“Why won’t you talk to me?” he pushed some more. He leaned against the island, his eyes imploring her.
“Goddamn it! That’s all we’ve been doing for weeks!” she erupted, surprising herself.
Ryleigh Andrews blew me away with Bring Me You. Book one in the Never Over You Series. I was hooked from the first page. This book has a little of everything. Sex, Drugs, Music, drama and a few extremely HOT men.
Mia is a lead singer of her band The Last Star. Her best friend Luke, which actually happens to be “Friends with Benefits” up until recently has a great friendship with Mia. Luke wanting Mia to be truly happy, sets her up with his friend Ethan. Who is the Pro Quaterback of the Flash, the best player in the UFL. He is incredibly charming and oh so sexy. Mia feels an instant connection with Ethan and decides to let go and give herself to him. Well, most of herself. She’s hiding something from her past and fights to keep it locked away from everyone.
“Stop doubting how beautiful I find you. I want you with a need I’ve never experienced before, he said, gazing into her eyes and she couldn’t mistake the hunger she saw in his”
As Mia and Ethan’s relationship evolves, things start to get in the way. She gets a deal she can’t turn down and which requires going on tours and being away for long periods of time. Her demanding schedule, combined with Ethan’s starts to put a strain on the relationship. Mia is hit the hardest; the separation from Ethan is causing her to fall. Demons from her past come back to the surface and she starts to slip away. She doesn’t want to feel, doesn’t want to hurt from not having Ethan by her side. What extreme will she go to and where will that leave her?
Things weren’t perfect in their relationship by a long shot; a lot of twists and turns happen throughout the story but in the end Ethan knows he wants Mia, only Mia. But is it too late? Have too many things changed? Will she close herself off completely and fall deeper into the darkness?
I laughed, I screamed, I cried. I was verbally abusing my kindle at some points lashing out at both Mia and Ethan for their choices. I love the story line, its smart, sexy and an easy read. You will be taken through a gamut of emotions and won’t be disappointed with this book. I cannot wait for Still Into You (Book 2) to be released. I am waiting on pins and needles to know what happens with Ethan and Mia! ~ 5 Stars! Shera – Book Lovers Obsession
During the day, Ryleigh is an analyst, but even then, she’s writing, sneakily crafting scenes on post-it notes. She’s been told she’s a bit of a geek…some say nerd. She’ll agree to it all. She loves music. It’s been a force in her life for as long as she can remember. Her love of Star Wars and superheroes has probably been going on just as long…see, this is where the geek/nerd thing comes into play. But, most of all, Ryleigh loves the written word. She’s been writing for a long time. Her first story came to her during one of her history classes. She wrote it in the margins of her notebook in teeny tiny letters so no one knew that she was writing a book instead of taking notes on 16th Century Europe. She currently lives in Chicago, Illinois, with her husband and son, along with her Siberian Husky, Mick Jagger, and her cat, Winston Churchill.
