Sweet Possesion by Maya Banks
I listened to this book on audio. The funny thing that happened was while listening to this book, I accidentally picked up another book and started reading that one, too. So, two books. Simultaneous. One print, one audio. I was reading for several chapters before I realized that I am doing two books at once and following the story perfectly! But once I realized what is happening, I cannot replicate the event. It happened when I wasn't paying attention. Have this ever happened to you?
This story is about this singer who lives for the adulation and fame. He's a bodyguard who likes his job. He doesn't like her music, and he thinks she's too much. So, when he has no choice but to work with Lyric, there's a lot of resentment. She's a wild child. In fact, she's not above sleeping with her two bodyguards all at the same time. I think they have a French word for that. She's Lyric Jones and she behaves the way she does because she's outrunning her nightmares. She's not always successful on keeping them at bay, but she tried.
He's Connor Malone. And he's nothing less than aghast to find out he responds physically to Lyric Jones. Sometimes, our body will feel the way it does, even if our head is not on board with it. He can't stand her antics, and it drives him crazy, but proximity brings out the best with these two.
I love the connection Connor has with his circle of friends. I adore his friends for taking in Lyrics and treating her like one of them. It's almost too good to be true, but these friends makes the book much more enjoyable for me.
It's a contemporary romance published in April 2011 by Berkley Heat. I borrowed my copy from my local library and listened to it via Media Overdrive ap in my iPhone. I would like to say that Caroline Wintour is a fantastic reader. She's what holds me to the story, most of all.
