About Sweet Ache:The New York Times bestselling author of Slow Burn turns up the heat when a sexy bet turns into so much more…
Hawkin Play, the bad boy rock star with a good guy heart, has lived a lifetime of cleaning up after his twin brother’s mistakes. Hunter’s most recent screw-up could land Hawke in jail and risk the band’s future. Hawke agrees to guest lecture at a local college to stay in the judge’s good graces—and a bet with his bandmate to seduce his sexy teaching assistant is icing on the cake.
Quinlan Westin is harder to bed than Hawke imagined. She knows his type and is determined to avoid the rocker at all costs—even if their attraction runs deeper than simple lust.
Just as Hawke might finally be winning over the girl, his brother has other plans. When Hunter realizes his twin finally has a weakness, he’ll stop at nothing to take advantage…
Hmmm…does rocker beat racer every time? I’m not sure about every time, but it was true for me here. My only point of comparison for this series is Colton and Rylee, since I haven’t read Slow Burn yet, but I have to say I like this relationship more.
Where Colton was the typical demanding alpha, Hawke was more of a carefree, playful alpha. And I loved it. The chemistry between him and Quinlan drove me crazy. There are a few scenes in this book that have made their way to the top of my all-time favorite steamy scenes. 😉View Spoiler »And yes, I’m talking about the nightclub. Oh my God. « Hide Spoiler
I also LOVED that Hawke is down with the D-Bags. Huge grin on my face every time they showed up, of course. Well, not so much Griffin, but the rest of them.
Hunter kept throwing me through a loop – but I have trust issues with twins in the first place because growing up I had classmates that switched places a lot. So as much as I love the Olsen twins, I’m always slightly suspicious of them.
The original Driven books will always be some of my favorites, but there really were a ton of things about Sweet Ache that I loved even more!
There’s also fun bets, not-so-subtle matchmaking, and really awesome back-and-forth. Overall, I enjoyed this more than I’ve enjoyed my past several reads.
I just wanted to yell at Hawke, “Goddamn it, haven’t you ever seen She’s All That?” Because the bet storyline is kind of overdone. But still, everything else was so good.
