SYNOPSIS:
 
Marlene Parker thought she met her soul mate at eighteen but when he left her pregnant and alone to pursue a life of rock n roll, she vowed to never love again. Now four years later, she is being offered the dream of a lifetime. Moving to France with her daughter to start anew. There is only one problem. Marlene’s formative ex is back in town, and his pull is strong as ever.
Luke Anderson has everything a man could want. Fame, fortune and enough beautiful women to last him a lifetime. That is until a young runaway shows him what is truly important. Family. A word in which plagues Luke with regret. As a scared twenty two year old he ran away from the love of his life and their unborn child. Now ready to reverse his biggest regret with only three days to do it, Luke’s fate hangs in the balance. The question is, will he be able to convince Marlene their love story deserves a second chance?
 
review
4 Fabulous stars!
Struggling single Mum Marlene has done the best in life she can for her adorable daughter Nil ever since her father, rockstar Luke Anderson ran away from them a month before Nil arrived.  Marlene is devoted to her daughter and has a fantastically supportive family behind her.  Life is a struggle but you get the impression that she’s doing ok and will do anything to keep her and her daughter happy.  She has dreams but these all fell by the wayside when she found herself alone bringing  up baby.
Then enters Luke, back in town for the first time in years and with him memories of bad times (as well as the good) that stirs up Marlene’s world and threatens to upset the balance of life that she has forged in his absence.
Add to the mix a current boyfriend who is offering her the world on a plate and a life away with aspirations of making her dreams come true and you get great story!
First of I think my favourite characters in the book is the sweet little Nil and also Grandma and Ted! Hilarious but the old bird is full of wisdom for Marlene and her story within this book is actually pretty sweet too!  Luke and Marlene have a chemistry which shows in the story and the ease in which they fall back into their old roles is quite endearing too.  I love the perspective of this story and initial feeling is that this is promising to be another story about a rocker and his life but there is refreshingly little insight into the rockstar life but a huge contrast in that we get to see just his personal life and his attempts at winning back his family.
I was also surprised by the twist in the story that explained a lot into Luke’s disappearance and although at one point I was pretty angry when he explains to Marlene why he never made contact for all of the years he has been assent, my heart utterly melted too.   It is a case of don’t take things at face value.  I also, much as I wanted to, couldn’t blame him too much for the length of time he was away but you are still left wondering just why he left in the first place.
After Luke’s revelation, you can understand why Marlene makes her decision as she does and I can honestly say it is a really sweet story although I do feel the ending could have been slightly more rounded and not quite as abrupt. I am also left still wondering why Luke left n the first place as this isn’t too obvious either. I laughed, felt sad and was left feeling mostly satisfied at how things panned out. It is undeniably a great debut from nicole and I will be waiting for more from her!  Definitely worth reading!

EXCERPT:
 
Luke worked his fingers into my hair and tilted my head back. He placed small kisses down along my neck to the hollow of my throat. I closed my eyes, savoring the feel of his mouth on my skin.
 
“You smell like cinnamon.” He gently nipped my shoulder. “And you taste like vanilla. You are a God damn walking dessert.”
 
A small laugh turned into a moan as his thumb brushed my nipple. Heat pooled in my lower stomach. I tugged at his shirt, desperate to get it off him. There were too many clothes separating us.
 
Luke stilled my hand. “No, wait.”
 
I glanced up at him. Last I remembered, you didn’t wear clothes during sex. “No?”
My head grew dizzy with the smell of pure male as his lips grazed my ear. “I want to take things slow.” He unbuttoned my jeans and dragged down the zipper. When he caught sight of the bright pink hearts on my thong, a slow grin spread across his face. “There’s nothing sexier than a woman in pink.”
 
Capturing my mouth with his, he backed me up against the wall. Every nerve ending in my body screamed for release. I titled my hips into his hardness, eliciting a groan from both our lips.
 
“Luke, please,” I begged. “I need you inside me.”
