THE BOYFRIEND BOOKMARK: ★★★★★
Love. Family. Business.
Talent manager, Beau Harris only cares about one of those things. His career is suddenly in a downward spiral and the only friend he has left is client and pop star, Vanessa Curtis.
Seeking refuge from the life he’s come to loathe, Beau moves in with Vanessa to focus on her upcoming tour. Yet unexpectedly, he ends up focusing more on his budding friendship with her sister and back-up dancer, Whitney.
Finally able to open up, Beau and Whitney share with each other the vulnerabilities they’ve hidden from the rest of the world. Unable to deny that their connection burns deeper than attraction, they’re forced to confront the feelings they’ve long since given up on. But the emotional baggage, the struggle to break old patterns, and the fear of what Vanessa will think makes falling in love more complicated than they could’ve imagined.
Love. Family. Business.
Those three things now hopelessly woven together, Beau will have to fight for the happily ever after he never knew he truly wanted.
Sway is a stand alone, adult contemporary romance and the second in the Confession Records collection, but may be better understood after reading Natural Harmony.
You know those books that are impossible to put down because you have to know how the end? This is one of those books. My heart felt for all of the characters involved and I didn’t want to let any of them go. The worst part of this book is when the last page was there and there was no more. I found myself wanting so much more of Beau and of Whitney.
Beau has hit rock bottom. His professional life is in shambles and his personal life isn’t on a great path either. At his breaking point he seeks help from his only client and his friend, Vanessa. When he shows up at her tour rehearsal, he has a purpose but he can’t stop looking at the newest dancer in her crew. He is drawn to her breathtaking beauty. So when introductions are made he feels foolish for not recognizing her sooner. He just can’t believe that he is looking at Vanessa’s sister, Whitney. But wait, I am getting as side tracked as he was. He is there with purpose.
He needs a change in his life and Vanessa is his only hope in helping him out. Of course, they are like family, so she welcomes him into her home with open arms. I mean, it’s a big house and only the three of them are living there. What’s one more? Yup, you read that right, Whitney lives with her sister Vanessa and Ken.
The chemistry between Whitney and Beau is there, it is very evident but there are so many things standing in the way of them getting involved. He has a past. It is not a pretty one. He has a reputation that he has done a great job of living up to, until now.
Now he is not so sure that is what he wants out of life anymore. But one night, one movie and it seems the world has shifted a bit and these two, it seems, are just made for each other. Or are they? There is no way Whitney can see beyond his reputation and the rumors, or is there? There is no way her sister is going to be okay with this becuase she knows him, right? Drama, drama, drama…
The two of them are explosive when they are together. He is in awe of her beauty, talent and personality. She doesn’t want to believe the rumors, she sees so much more in him. But there are so many things that could get in the way of a relationship between the two of them. The biggest, being Beau himself.
Beau is not cut out for relationships. He is a business man and he his job is his top priority, always. He uses women and breaks them down and leaves them behind. That’s how he rolls. How could it not be after his heart was shattered all those years ago? He is his own biggest enemy in this game of love.
But there is something about Whitney. He wants to spend time with her. He wants to get to know her. He wants so much more than his heart has ever led him to believe that he could have. But he is not alone in that. He is someone that she wants too. He is someone she can talk to, open up to… but could she fall for him?
This book just hit a soft spot in my heart and I just wanted more of these two. The passion, the compassion… all of it. I just wanted more. Kate Roth does such an amazing job with her characters. They didn’t seem superficial or perfect. They each had their own flaws and their flaws are what made me fall in love with them all. Sway was so much more than just another book to read, it captured my heart and tugged on all of those little strings and makes you just have a little more faith in love.
