Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, girls. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie is the son of Hollywood A-listers, and when he’s asked to join the boy band Virtuous Paradox, his star shoots even higher. But so do expectations, leading Bodhi down a destructive path of addiction—until a drop-dead gorgeous guardian angel shows him her sizzling brand of tough love.

When Bodhi ends up in rehab, he doesn’t expect to meet someone as cool and down-to-earth as Kimberly Gordon. Although he’s enjoyed the company of beautiful, charming women before, none of them have tried to get to know the “real” Bodhi. But Kimberly isn’t fazed by his stardom. She’d rather go horseback riding, teach Bodhi to play guitar, or ask him about his feelings. Soon Bodhi realizes he’s fallen head over heels for her. He just hopes that he’s strong enough to protect what they have from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.




(Received ARC from NetGalley in exchange for our honest review.)

Bohdi was a coke addicted sent to Seredity Springs for thirty days. Bohdi was assigned Kimberly Gordon as his one-on-one counselor/friend. Bohdi and Kimberly had sparks flying the minute they saw each other. Kimberly knew seeing Bohdi was unethical but it could harm Bohdi also. Bohdi convinced Kimberly that it was alright. They decided to see each other when he left the rehab.

Bohdi’s world is much different than what Kimberly is use too. Would she fit in? Would Bohdi stay clean? Can the stress from work keep Bohdi from relapsing? Read this wonderful entertaining story to find out.

I could not put the story down. I’m anxiously waiting for the next installment. Heidi’s writing is wonderful and smooth. Enjoyed every minute!!
