Irresistible. Bad Boy. Manwhore.

That’s what they call him.
But I know better.

You can’t change someone
who doesn’t want to be changed,
but it didn’t stop me trying.

Can I really be the person
to break down those walls?


Innocent. Sweet. Beautiful.

That’s what she is.
I know her better than she knows herself.

You can’t make someone stay,
but you can show them your truth
and let them choose.

Can I ever be enough for her?
Can I be the man worthy of her heart?

*This story is for mature audiences only.

I thought the plot was really good- who doesn’t love a bad boy turned good for the woman he loves? This was definitely a fast read so for those of you that want a quick hot escape this is your book! I know I have mentioned before that I don’t read a lot of sexy steamy scenes but if you do this book has them! There is the hot drummer who changes his way for the beautiful woman he loves and of course some action to keep you on the edge of your seat! I really liked the characters but I feel like we didn’t really get a chance to get to know any of them too well- not even the main characters so that was a little disappointing.

My Recommendation:
I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. I really like a quick read and that is definitely what this book is! There was a lot of sex scenes which aren’t a personal favorite but often times I really love a book and don’t mind all of the sexy steamy stuff- this one was just lacking depth with the characters and that made me a little sad. Overall it was definitely worth a read and it is not a cliffhanger so you can read it and end on a happy note 😉

About Dani René


Hey darlings,

I am an indie author and freelance graphic designer. I started focusing on writing in January 2015 and after a few fan fiction stories, I decided to publish Ace of Harts it was my first full length novella. On a daily basis I have a few hundred characters, storylines, and ideas floating around in my mind. If I am not on Pinterest or Instagram looking for my next muse, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook. So head on over, I love meeting new readers and authors.

When I am in the cave, I am happiest. If you can’t find me sitting behind my trusty MacBook writing about hot alpha males, I am probably drinking coffee at a coffee shop, or wine tasting one of the few hundred wine farms in my home city of Cape Town, in South Africa.

I have an addiction to reading (who doesn’t?), TV series, music, tattoos, chocolate, and ice cream. I am constantly looking for a new book to get lost in and new book boyfriend to fall in love with. My favorite authors include – M Never, K Webster, KL Kreig, Meghan March, and that’s just to name a few!

Much love xo
