Passionate Addiction by Eden Summers Review

Passionate Addiction
Reckless Beat Book #2
Eden Summers
Published: Nov. 15, 2013

He’s been her ultimate untouchable desire. 

Nothing says happy birthday like a rock god flying thousands of miles to surprise a woman he's never met. But that's exactly what happens to Gabi Smith when she gives her long distance best friend a flippant invitation to her laid back girl’s night out. She never expected to turn on the dance floor and find Blake Kennedy’s gaze holding her body captive.

She’s his everything and he’s never laid eyes on her. 

Gabi means more to Blake than life itself. She’s his strength, his savior, and the only person who helped to vanquish his demons. No one means more to him than his angel. So when things between them start to sizzle, he's ready to fight for the future he never thought he would deserve.

Skeletons from his past will threaten his only chance at love... 

Blake has come a long way—with Gabi's help—to leave the hell of his youth behind him, but sometimes memories don’t want to stay buried. Determined to stand on his own for once, Blake is willing to stretch the truth to keep his troubles from burdening the woman he adores.

Little white lies can create black holes in any relationship. Only time will tell if an Aussie with a heart of gold will forgive her bad-boy boyfriend or if the deceit will end his passionate addiction. 

My Review: 5 stars
Blake Kennedy is most definitely a Rock God. I really enjoyed reading this book about Blake and Gabrielle. The way that Eden wrote these characters and gave them these qualities like insecurity, loneliness, fear of losing the one you love; it's a bit unusual. But god, I fall in love with these characters precicely because they are flawed, unperfect and humans making mistakes just like the rest of us. We just don't usually see past the bright lights and the story the media wants to tell. Eden lets us know that it's not always sunshine and roses, like we would like to think. That they stuggle with real-life problems just as real as our own, and sometimes a bit more complicated. You know it's always more complicated when money is involved. When I read these books about Reckless Beat, I feel like I'm getting an inside look at what these all too-human people go through. I'm sure it's not easy to live a life in the glare of bright lights, not to mention the pressure to do the right things, project the "right" image. It's no wonder they have problems. I loved that Gabi was there for Blake when he needed someone the most, without knowing who he was, as a friend. And then continued with that friendship after finding out who he was. Then to have that friendship turn to something more? That's amazing, and well worth it in the end. I sincerely can't wait for the next book in the series and wonder which band member it will focus on, or could the focus be on Leah, their manager? Either way, no matter who it's about; I want to read it and continue getting to know these amazing characters. Another book well written by Eden, she never disappoints with her writing and her characters are fantastically broken, and not where you would think. It's always a pleasure to read anything that Eden has written.
