Can love be ignited under her disguise?
Lexxi Rock is a fiery pop / punk rock singer and guitarist -- and billionaire, thanks to her father's oversight. She's grown tired of Los Angeles, the limelight, the isolation, her image, and her lackluster romantic life, most recently tarnished by smoking hot country star -- and cheating bastard -- Wilkes Barracks.
When her father suddenly becomes ill, she decides to temporarily leave it all behind. Anxious about the unwanted paparazzi and media attention that would follow her right back to her home in Tucson, Arizona, Lexxi takes a drastic, unprecedented step to hide from them all.
There's only one wild card she did not count on. Lexxi has no idea that her father's neighbor, and scorching hot firefighter, Sebastian "Bash" Sullivan, knows exactly who she is, and plays along with her ruse to get close to her.
Bash is the one reason she's tempted to blow her cover, but can she trust him? Will her disguise work for long enough to nurse her father back to health? Can Bash save her when disaster strikes?

This book was a little different from the usual romance read, making it extremely intriguing. It wasn't intensely passionate but it teased romance and sexiness with every flip of the page.
I loved the conflict that plagued the characters; Lexxi on whether to come out with the truth and Bash on whether to let her little game of disguise continue or not. With this hurdle in the way neither was ever really able to act on their feelings, and it certainly made for plenty of entertainment and confusion...especially when it came to Bash's sexuality.
I admired Lexxi's courage and determination to transform so completely, and her selfless act made her more and more likeable the more this story developed. When the media were ready to crucify her for not caring about her father, I had a good snicker. If only they knew. I liked the fact that she didn't rush back to try save face, instead, knowing what was important and sticking to her guns. She may not have had time for her family before, but she certainly was there when it was most needed.
Bash the firefighter...need I say more!! LOL! He was smoking, and I couldn't wait for him to heat up the pages with Lexxi. I'm sure it would have been explosive and way hotter than any fire he'd ever had to fight.
The only thing that irked me about this book was the ending. I don't have a problem with cliffhangers, but they need to be well-placed and for me this one wasn't. I realize that cliffhangers are meant to leave you in suspense, but with this one it felt like just as I was cresting the climax of this story, the book was slammed shut and I didn't get that complete feeling of satisfaction.
Having said that, I enjoyed the characters so much and I really want to see what happens between them so I cannot wait for Reveal.
Bella Love-Wins Bio
I live a little north of Toronto and dream of moving to the small town of Grimsby, Ontario one day very soon. Once I move out of the city, I would love to have a Shih Tzu and 2 cats as pets and practice kids. I love writing action-packed, steamy romance stories about new adults and characters in their mid-twenties, sometimes from wealthy families. I love my female characters to be strong, and my men stronger, with a vulnerable, sometimes broody side. I love to laugh. I think it should be a law to laugh every day. Pink is my strength and my weakness. The color, not the artist.
