For the Love of a Lush (Lush No. 2)
by Selena Laurence
Genre: Edgy Contemporary Romance
Release Date:  May 29, 2014
Hosted by:  The REAL Housewives of Romance

Six months ago, Walsh Clark was the drummer of America’s hottest rock sensation, Lush. Now he’s living at the Double A Ranch in north Texas, home to cows, cowboys, and lushes—like him. He’s survived alcoholism, rehab, and the breakup of his band. But the one thing Walsh might not survive is the return of his ex fiancée Tammy DiLorenzo.

Tammy and Walsh met at fourteen, and she was with him on every step to fame and fortune—until one fateful night when she betrayed him. Now she’s back, begging for forgiveness and ready to fight for her man. But some betrayals are too painful to forget, some mistakes can’t be repaired, and Walsh is certain that he and Tammy can’t ever be together again.

But DiLorenzo women don’t back down, and Tammy always gets what she wants. In the wake of the lies and losses, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes for a second chance. She’ll give it all—for the love of a lush.

*Sigh* Back off Ladies!!! Walsh is my man!!!

Have you read A Lush Betrayal yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Read it, then grab For the Love of a Lush and dive in! I'm kinda partial to this series and this author, and if you love hot rockers, strong female heroines, angst, and steamy romance you will love this series! This series definitely doesn't get the attention that it deserves! 5 stars!

"I'd  thought my first full day without alcohol was the worst day of my life, but no, finding out about Joss and Tammy topped anything the world has ever - or could ever - throw at me." ~Walsh

*Warning spoilers ahead if you haven't read Lush #1*
For the Love of A Lush picks up where A Lush Betrayal left off. Walsh is the former drummer for Lush and he faced the ultimate betrayal by this best-friend Joss (and band mate), and his finance, Tammy. He fled the band and life as he knew it, and is now living at the Double A Ranch, taking life and his sobriety one day at a time. He knows he has many demons to overcome, but just when it seems he has a handle on things, Tammy shows up and throws a wrench in his recovery.

"I look into those same eyes I first saw fourteen years ago, and I can see what the years have done.  My beautiful boy is a man. A man who has suffered pain and seen things he never should have.  Some of that pain I brought on him." ~Tammy 

Tammy knows she messed up, she knows she hurt Walsh horribly, and she'd do anything to fix it. She feels that she has given him enough time and distance. Now it is time for her to fight for their relationship, or she is afraid they will lose they love they shared for good. The more Tammy pushes, the more Walsh pulls away, can Tammy convince Walsh to give her a second chance? Can Walsh continue to fight his demons and stay sober, all while realizing that he played a part in his relationship falling apart? Can Walsh make amends with the people he has wronged in the past, and forgive those who have wronged him?

"I know you love each other. And I know your right for each other. Life screws with us, and circumstances pull on us, and the road can be really f@#king rocky, but I know love when I see it.  She's yours Walsh, and you're hers." ~Joss

A must read series! I love how going into this book I loathed Tammy, but Selena's ability as an author just shined.....she really made me think...could I forgive someone if this happened to me? Well, I don't know...but Selena made me actual love Tammy and feel for her, and this was a huge feat in itself! Don't get me wrong, I still loved Walsh, and wanted to fix him...but, I was screaming at Walsh to get his crap together and go get his woman! Selena made me mad at my man (and Walsh is my man ladies)! Huh! Can't wait for more for the boys from Lush! Now bring on Mike...and Selena....make him dirty ;)

A Lush Betrayal
(Lush No. 1)

Joss Jamison has it all. He's the lead singer for the world's hottest rock band, Lush. He's wealthy, sexy, talented...and miserable. Twelve months ago, Joss lost his finely honed control and made a mistake he can't undo. A mistake that could end up costing him his best friend, his band, and maybe his heart.

Mel DiLorenzo has it all. She's been hired to document the world tour of her sister's fiance's rock band. She's gorgeous, talented, loved...and sick of being the little sister. When she agrees to the summer job, Mel has no idea she's walking into a minefield of friendships lost and hearts destroyed. She also has no idea what it means to be the object of Joss Jamison's affections.

One hot rock star plus one life-altering mistake, add a dash of sexy younger sister and a handful of broken hearts, and you've got a recipe for fire. Life on the road can be hot, but for the boys of Lush, it's about to get a whole hell of a lot hotter.
