Rafe Ranier was my boss and secret crush. A rock musician by night and head of a billion dollar empire by day, Rafe could have any woman he wanted. But I was just the shy secretary he never noticed. For years I obsessed over him, until I finally realized I had to walk away. I needed to break from the secure life I’d always known to discover who I really was.

I never expected Rafe to follow me.

Now I’m on the road with his band, Savage Kiss, and all my secret fantasies are coming true. But I fear I’ve made a huge mistake, because if I get any more attached to a man I can never truly have, my heart will be broken beyond all repair.

My Thoughts

so, as we know, Melanie has decided to go on tour and Rafe has stayed in Philly to work on the company.  What will the distance between them mean especially since they left on bad terms?  well your guess is as good as mine.

It’s not just the distance that’s putting a crimp in things.  She now has to deal with her clear sexual attraction with Travis – who doesn’t seem to want to take no for an answer, and Melanie begins to wonder if she shouldn’t say no.  then one night Diego – another bandmade decides to hint at a threesome with her and Travis, so we know what rabbit hole they are about to go down.

This really makes for some tension and passion that’s become a trait of our author Ms. Carew.  I think that it’s something that builds anticipation as we’re nearing the end of a story and I can’t wait to see what it means.  I mean, sometimes it seems like it’s a competition between the guys for Melanie and sometimes i see that Melanie just doesn’t want to have to choose.  She just wants to explore that side of things – the controlling side of sex which all the boys seem to be more than willing to help with – aside from Rafe.

Onto what i think is the finale – book 5 to see if we’re coming to the end of bliss – since a drunken Diego seems to flip the switch on everyone, and the world comes crashing down.
