Lucas “Lucky” Jones:
Sometimes moments seem too good to be true, but if I want it bad enough, I get it.
Life with her was perfect, we fell in love and I didn’t think it could get any better. She was like a dream in every single way.
But in one instant, my world shattered and all it took was one solitary pay-off covered by one big lie.
Now I’m on the fast track trying to forget her, as the lead singer of my band, JINKS, but she never leaves my thoughts, her face is forever emblazed in my mind and the love I still have for her is forever a part of my heart. Every song I write and every song I sing is for her.
I’d never met anyone like him before. He was so much different than any other man. He was calm and confident and pure of heart.
Our love was perfect until he betrayed me, now the love I have for him won’t fade and I am unable to love a man who is not him. When he left, he took my heart with him.
Gone their separate ways after they were both ripped apart, they both wonder if their love is worth saving. They wonder if it is possible to rekindle what they once had or will Lucky always be chasing….Forbidden Faith?
Loved this Book! Can’t wait for Judging June!!
I had the pleasure of meeting TJ West in Phoenix AZ in January 2015 for collaboration on her upcoming books' photo shoots for their covers. With that being said, I was attracted to her passion for her characters and her vision of how she wanted them portrayed. It is truly a blessed experience to be part of the process. At the time, I didn't know this book was complete and part of the series we were shooting covers for in January, but here it is, in all its glory, and Tiff, you should definitely be proud Mama! Now on with the review....
***Disclaimer: As always, I do not read blurbs nor others' reviews prior to reading books for review***
We are introduced immediately to Lucas/Lucky Jones, construction worker for Montgomery Industries, owned by Faith Montgomery's father. The book opens up with a heart wrenching scene where this appealingly humble young man is forced into a decision to take a blackmail payoff of one million dollars to never see Faith again. Her father is a biased, mean, evil man who pulls every string to get what he wants, even if it means smearing Lucas' impoverished and junkie mom's shortcomings publicly to assure he will leave town.
Faith Montgomery,the daughter of this wealthy successful CEO, is a privileged young lady who assists her father in his business and dreams of opening her own hotel one day. At the tender age of 19, in a chance encounter at her father's job site, she crossed paths with Lucas and became enamored and intrigued at their first meeting and she didn't even get his name. Faith has a strong character and she pursues him, at first behind the back of her disapproving father and they start a loving relationship. After being gutted by Lucas' acceptance of her father's money, unaware of the full story of blackmail and torment behind it, she goes on with her life and college, leaving her estranged father behind in Arizona. She moves to San Diego, still sort of attached to her dad's business, but separately living her dream of opening her own hotel, Montgomery Suites.
Faith's college roommate is the eccentric June, also a privileged born female, but with ambitions of her own. She is operating her own music production company, BitchTours 2090 and doing well. She happens to cross paths with the band, JINX, headed by none other than Lucas/Lucky Jones, himself and his best friend, Danny. The deal June offers is a sweet one and JINXS is more than a little talented and headed for stardom. ***SPECIAL NOTE: In some of the Chapter breaks there are song lyrics....just plain awesome!*** Sharing in June's success, Faith agrees to join June for a celebratory party of the signing of the new band. June exposes Faith to the JINXS' music on the way to the party and the floodgates of old memories and old wounds burst at the seams with the recognition of Lucas' voice....and no spoilers!!!
This is a roller coaster ride of emotions both sad and exciting. The plot twists keep you on your toes for sure and I am definitely looking forward to Book 1.5 June's story. Will Faith run and continue her love-less relationships? Will she give Lucas a chance to explain? Will Lucky face the girl he left behind? What happened to the money? Will Faith confront her father? Will Lucky risk it all by re-entering Faith's life, the one thing that is Forbidden? Find out for yourself!!
I cannot express how much I enjoyed this book. I read it all in one sitting to the wee hours of morning. The feelings are raw and exposed and punch you in the gut. The happiness will make you smile as you share in their joys and successes. A truly gifted writer doesn't tell a story, they make you feel it. Slam Dunk, Tiff, slam dunk!
Tiffany West you delivered yet another amazing story! I can not wait to continue this series! I loved the emotions in this story. The love that Faith And "Lucky" shared... so touching! I loved how their story shows readers that no matter if you love something or someone so much that letting that go will eventually complete you in the end. Very well written and definitely deserves 5 golden stars!
