He’s a rockstar that can have any woman he wants,
but he has his sights set on his brother’s best friend.
Ryker always felt that he lived in the shadows of his genius twin brother, Jameson; no amount of platinum records or devoted fans can change that. Especially when the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen crashes his sister’s wedding and rushes into his brother’s arms. He wants her more than he has ever wanted anything and, brother be damned, he is determined to make her his.
Norah is in trouble. She has spent years perfecting a secret device for the government only to have it stolen. On a whim, she enlists the help of her best friend, Jameson. What she never expects is to meet her best friend’s brother and for him to offer more than just protection, he offers his heart.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holy heck in a hand basket! Yeah I said that. Have to come up with cheesy appropriate phrases these day so my reviews don’t get rejected. Pity, though because I believe true expression is important. But whatever.
This book! This series! This author!
When I discovered my first Coming To Carson book, it was exciting. I had never read this author and finding new authors to love is always a great experience. Renee Harless quickly became a fave for me to the point that I frequently stalk her pages. I have to make sure I don’t miss any new release info. An important aspect for me when reading is that I need the feels. I don’t have to have them all, but I do need a balance. A book with just tragedy and angst is not a “go to” for me. However, if there is a good amount of suspense as well as humor, I’m sold. And for me, that is what the Coming To Carson series establishes. I would categorize this series as romantic suspense with humor, a quirky, loyal small town, a mix of fun and serious secondary characters, plenty of sexy moments with the perfect amount of tension and an amazing HEA. Of course I will say that each new book is my favorite, lol.
While all of the books I have read by this author have a steady pace, I found Coming Unplugged had a faster pace. Once I picked up my Kindle, I could not put it down. Oh, no. There is so much excitement in this one that I had to keep reading until I got my happily-ever-after. The point I am trying to get across it this…..Renee Harless is an author you should add to your “must read” list.
Ryker and Norah…..
Ryker and his twin Jameson are the last of the Connolly family to have books. This is Ryker and Norah’s story. I believe Jameson will be next. And while that is the end of the family, there are a few citizens in Carson that I can only pray, Renee Harless will give attention to.
That said…..Ryker is a famous rock star who just recently decided, along with his band members, to take a break from touring. Ryker loves his career but lately, as he watched his siblings find love, he feels as if he is missing out. Ryker is very close to his family. That was another aspect I loved about this series. The closeness and loyalty between the Connolly family was amazing. Though Ryker is only 23 years old, he has a much older soul. He is very mature and his persona was realistic despite his young age.
Norah is more of an introvert. While I found her personality to be intelligent, independent and sweet, Norah was innocent in many ways. I enjoyed watching her fall in love with a rock star.
So I have to say this….the dynamic between Ryker and Norah is electric. I can best describe their attraction as instant love/lust. Truly, this book takes place over the course of several days. Ryker and Norah fell instantly in love. While this may be cheesy for some readers, I loved it. There was so much going on in the book, ie: danger, suspense, that I never felt their relationship too over the top. Hey, if I was Norah I’d fall in love with Ryker immediately as well. You should realize, that this is book six in the series and throughout the other books, we get glimpses into the other family members lives. So I already knew Ryker. I knew he was a great character and would be an even greater hero.
I could go on and on about this book and my love for this series. I won’t though. I want you to experience Ryker and Norah without any spoilers from me. This series does not have to be read in order. However I recommend it. You will love the quirky, protective town of Carson and it’s loyal citizens.
The burb will give you enough perspective to interest you so I won’t summarize this book in this review. All I can add here is that I loved it and I hope you will too. If you haven’t yet read this author, it’s time to change that.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you or taking the time to read it. 🙂
