Beauty in the Breakdown
By: Natalie Baird
Synopsis: Alexa Vansant isn't the type of girl to go looking for trouble, so what was she doing sitting in a Lower East Side dive bar waiting for Jackson Brent? What did she expect from a meeting with an international rock star sensation, infamous millionaire playboy, and notorious womanizer? He said the meeting was about business, and it had to be with her, alone, and on his terms...
When the most gorgeous man she's ever laid eyes on walks through the door, Alexa knows she's done for. Agreeing to meet with Jackson Brent may be the worst mistake she's ever made.
The moment his striking blue eyes meet hers, the rock star immediately has her fumbling. His British accent renders her helpless against his charms and Alexa is unable to control the desire welling inside her as a result of the sheer physical attraction she feels toward him.
It's unbecoming for a professional media journalist to get star-struck, this was supposed to be strictly business, or so she thought.
When Jackson reveals that he wants her to write his tell-all bio, Alexa is astonished. The privilege would mean instant fame and notoriety for her and her magazine. The only catch? She has to join him on his month long European tour, to experience who he really is... to get the proper intimate details...
Jackson pulls her into a whirlwind of lust, heartbreak, and utter passion. If she is the one to finally discover the real Jackson Brent, will she be strong enough to fight for his love?
My Review: 3/5 Stars
This story begins with us meeting Alexa. She is a strong independent woman trying to make her way in the world of journalism while living in NYC. Her life is structured and organized. Forced, by her over zealous boss, to meet with world famous Jackson Brent she learns there is more to the man than meets the eye.
Jackson seeks out Alexa to write an exposé about him. I loved how he had his "way" of always knowing where she was or what she doing. Typical controlling lead male character. Jackson invites Alexa to come along with him and his band. With a little convincing and some pinning Alexa agrees, but she wasn't prepared for life on the road. Sex, drugs, ex-lovers and multiple versions of the man she is falling for await her.
Is she strong enough to fight for the man she knows lays below the many layers?
