I’m pleased to be a part of Acting Brave’s blog tour. Today’s post is sponsored by Xpresso Book Tours.
She’s spent her whole life acting. But is she good enough to make him believe she doesn’t love him?
Three years ago, a terrified girl named Emma fled a world of crime and abuse in Chicago and bought a one-way ticket to New York. She reinvented herself as an actress, enrolled at the prestigious Fenbrook Academy and buried her pain beneath a vivacious new persona. Her new name was Jasmine.
Now she has to pull off the performance of her career.
Landing her dream part in a police show, she finds herself falling for her co-star, Ryan, a real-life cop. If she lets him get too close, he’ll awaken memories she doesn’t want to face and uncover secrets that could endanger them both. But how can she keep a guy at arm’s length when she has to kiss him on camera?
The last place Ryan imagined himself was on a TV show. Blaming himself for the death of his partner, he’s on a downward spiral of rage and guilt. The show is his last chance…but how can he keep it professional when his co-star is a woman he’s crazy about?
As their on-screen and off-screen relationships merge, things go from hot to blistering. But when Jasmine’s old life catches up with her, will a cop be the one person she can’t be around…or the only person who can save her?
Jasmine is an actress trying to hide from her past. Ryan is a cop who gets dealt a crappy hand. The two meet in an alley while Ryan is answering a call about one of Jasmine’s friends. Ever since that day, Ryan becomes crazy with lust for Jasmine. He thinks she is out of his league so he just watches her with lust. After Ryan’s partner dies, he goes on a downward swirl that pushes him into the arms of his crush. On a TV Show. This show is suppose to be Jasmine’s big break and Ryan’s way back to the police force turns south when the past catches up with them.
I loved this book. It keep me guessing through the entire book. It was so well-written. Jasmine and Ryan are two of the best characters I’ve seen in such a long time. Their connection was really felt through the book. No matter how hard Jasmine tried to keep Ryan away from her past. He found out. I think he ended up saving her just like she saved him.
