She’s a singer who lives for the spotlight—and can’t resist her adoring fans… 
Outrageous and out-of-control, Lyric Jones is a spoiled pop star who lives hard and fast, always outrunning her past and the nightmares that haunt her. She’s used to getting what she wants—groupies included—because she can’t stand to be alone. So in bed, it’s the more the merrier, even if it means closing off the deepest part of herself…

He’s a hands-on bodyguard—and a one-woman man. 
There is nothing Connor Malone wants to do less than babysit the celebratty songstress while she’s on vacation. But part of him relishes taming Lyric and showing her what it’s like to be possessed—body and soul—by one man. And though Lyric’s crazy antics nearly drive Connor to the edge, his quiet intensity penetrates her defenses, leaving them both vulnerable to the secrets that could topple Lyric from the stage

Hello, hello! Well it's actually been a little bit since I finished this book, it was a couple days ago, and I'm just now getting around to giving a review. To be honest, this was the most tame and mellow book of the Sweet Series that I've listened to so far! I'm actually several chapters into book #6 by now (can we say WOW!!!) and it's definitely left this book, #5, in the dust! I truly liked the characters, but even the author mentions towards the beginning something in regards to Connor being "vanilla". LOL! And vanilla he was! He had a lot of passion and he was paired with a great female character, quite tortured and all that Lyric was, it had a sweet feeling about it once they connected... but overall, it tended to be a tad on the boring side! Sorry :/ I mean, I know I shouldn't compare the book to its predecessors like I am, but having had a good listen to book #6, it is obvious that this book was very different than all the others. Something that kinda irked me a bit was how FAST everything came into play, how instantly after one LOOK, the two had this love-hate thing going on, that quickly turned into "love"... very odd and strange, as I listened along I found myself going WTF?! *snort* Anyway, I'm really looking forward to getting more into book #6 so I'm cutting this review short. Don't go into this book expecting it to be anything like books 1-4 in this series because it's not!
