Guilt is the hardest habit to kick.
Garrett Jakes is the sexy and sex-addicted lead singer of Rhapsody. Now in recovery, he's trying to clean up his act and atone for his mistakes. The only problem is he can't stop the guilt he feels whenever he looks at his friend Savvy. They have history, and he's not sure if he's helping or hurting when he tries to become a bigger part of her life.
Savvy O'Roark is a widow and a mom at twenty-eight. She watched as her husband was murdered while trying to protect her. Now she's struggling to keep her husband's business and his memory alive, and Garrett wants to help. The only problem is she can't stop the guilt she feels whenever she looks at him. Their history is one that haunts her, and she's not sure that's something she can ever get past.
As Savvy and Garrett struggle to overcome their demons, they must also face the one thing neither of them can ever take back. Will they learn how to honor and forgive, but also love and let go? Can something that started all wrong end up right? Or will guilt be a habit they simply can't kick?
Her best book yet!
I love every book that Selena Laurence writes because the vulnerabilities of her characters never fail to reach into my chest, grab my heart and yank it out so that I too, can experience their utter devastation. Garrett Jakes is the lead singer of Rhapsody and a recovering sex addict who has finally realized that booze and sex don't give him the overwhelming high they used to. Over the last year he and his band mates have gone through hell and lived to tell about it but they're still in shock over the devastating murder of one of their own. Kevin's widow Savvy is struggling to find her new normal while raising their four year old son but she's drowning in the day to day responsibility of managing the bar that was Kevin's dream. Both Garrett and Savvy share the guilt of a sexual attraction that began while Kevin was still alive but he's determined to do everything he can to make her life easier which means staying in the apartment above the bar and keeping his lust filled dreams to himself. As Savvy fights to stay true to herself and gives in to her attraction to Garrett the worst thing happens; Garrett has to go back on the road where the temptation of mindless sex threatens to rip them both apart at the seams. This is a gut-wrenching roller coaster ride of temptation that kept me on the edge of my seat while Garrett struggles in despair and Savvy rips herself away from the only home she's ever known. I know there were chapters where I literally held my breath while praying for a happy ending for these two conflicted characters. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
