Kenna is a free spirit. She loves her music and the first time she seen NOLA Jumk. She fell in love. Phil the lead singer is a force that Kenna can't stop. After a chance meeting at a show. He's someone she will never forget and vice Versa.
Their mutual attraction spans over years and even after not seeing each other for 5-6 years. I enjoyed their chemistry and the moment they were finally able to really see each other, was like a fireworks display of epic proportions.
The story did seem to drag a little. I like to get to the meat of the story. So it did take awhile to really get into it and finish it. I really did love Kenna, she was different. She wasn't like most girls and had aspirations. I mean she's a DR, how can you not have goals? I felt though that Phil was a little over the top. Like he was this massive caveman. I think In ways he was use to doing whatever, whenever and people just fell to their knees.
I'm still not sure of Phil, there's a lot of demons just above the surface. This was a good story and I did enjoy it. But he seriously needs to redeem himself. Keep in my mind, this story is not a lovey dovey story. It's very emotional and very raw.
