BK Rivers – Raining Down Rules

bkBlurb: Jemma Bowers hasn’t kissed anyone in over a thousand days. She knows—she’s counted.

For twenty-year-old Jemma, rules are not meant to be broken…even if she’s the one who created them. Friendships have boundaries, relationships mean trouble, and don’t even get her started on sex. Haunted by the death of her mother and her father’s abandonment, Jemma finds herself hungry for something meaningful and permanent, but is afraid of what may happen if she pursues it.

Jordan Capshaw can’t fight his addiction. Not even if it will cost him his career…

When Jemma finds Jordan drunk and barefoot in the street, she convinces him to get in her car. Aside from the fact he’s the lead singer of her favorite band and pretty much the rock star of her dreams, she quickly realizes his addiction is a monster neither of them can control.

Who knew choosing between a rock star and a fireman could be so difficult?

Emotions run high as Jemma soon finds herself caught between the troubled rock star and her growing affections for Vic Harper, a swoon-worthy firefighter from her past. But when her grandmother passes away, leaving her with no other family, Jemma’s world falls apart.

To save herself from further heartbreak, she risks it all by breaking her own rules, and putting her heart on the line.

After all, the heart just might be the biggest rule breaker of them all…

Review: Jemma’s heart is carefully guarded behind walls. Solidly built, impenetrable fortress like walls. And with good reason. After losing her mother when she was only 3 in a car accident, then 12 months later her father abandons her leaving her to grow up with her grandmother, you can’t blame her for trying to keep everyone at arms length.

However when her teenage crush, rockstar Jordan Capshaw stumbles shoeless, drunk and higher than a kite Jemma can’t force herself to look away. Picking him up she takes him home and attempts to save him. But how do you save someone who doesn’t want to be saved?

I loved the real emotion of this book and the struggle Jemma endured between her heart and her head – knowing that her heart is leading her towards the good guy Vic, the guy who’d give her the world while her head reminds her of the man she imagined Jordan to be.

A truly well written, emotional read!
