Plot:   A phone call that changed our lives...

I've lived my life in a daze, trying to save someone hell bent on destruction. But when my phone rings and I'm told that Angel, my on again off again boyfriend has OD'd for the second time in two years, I'm so numb. So tired. So when Tor Boler, the sexy Norwegian and drummer of Fok asks me to stay with him, I stay. We were friends and I needed to be held. To be loved. It was just supposed to be one night of reckless passion. One night where I could forget how screwed up my life had become.

...a night of passion with far reaching consequences

I've wanted Jamie Sullivan since the day she walked through my tattoo shop eight years ago. There's a soulfulness to her blue eyes that reminds me of the arctic fjords of home. She calls to me. There's only one problem standing in our way- Angel Romero. I want her, and she wants me too, she just doesn't realize it yet.

This time... we'll get it right.

 My Review 

Before actually embarking on this read, I had admittedly read some goodreads to gain more a feel for what to expect since I *ducks sheepishly* hadn't read books one and two. I do agree with this user, Brandon Rickman, that the title should have been titled "Time to Let Go" because it suited both characters' clauses perfectly.

Jamie is in an unhealthy relationship with on and off again boyfriend, Angel. She believes that she can save him from his destructive ways and believes that it is partially her fault for him spiraling into the turmoil that he is in.

As for Tor, our Norwegian sexy drummer, who's name is one letter off from our hammer-wielding Norse god: it has always been Jamie... ever since he left home and moved to the U.S.

Now when an opportunity presents itself for him to finally claim what is his, he is not going to let go. He is going to cherish this time with her, this moment in time.

But, with his own demons from home and Jamie's inherent guilt concerning Angel, what will become of their blooming love? Will external forces win the way? Or will this time, they'll get it right?

My thoughts: So basically, this is kind of your melodramatic, "angsty" romance. You have two people who obviously feel something deep for one another but are plagued from their pasts threatening to take over fold over their futures.

Should they cut their ties? Should they allow those on the outside to dismantle what they have?

I guess, what it all comes down to is choice and letting go of unhealthy, selfish habits (and people) and embracing your piece of happiness/Heaven.

So, a great, decent over all read!!

"We were like two lost and broken souls traveling on different paths, and had the terrible things not happened to us as they had, we'd still be moving in opposite directions. But by some miracle our paths had intersected and we'd stopped just long enough to look up. And I was so grateful for that."

*I received an ARC from Author's HQ in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!*
