|Taming the Storm
You, see Tom is a bit of a player and giving up easy women was not in his plans.
Lyla Summers has been hurt in the worse possible way. After being betrayed by the people she cared the most for she makes a vow of her own. Her life gets complicated when her band Vintage signs with TMS Records and their band manager can't come with them on tour.
Tom steps in as their new tour manager. This means she will be around him 24/7. He will travel with them and share the same bus. Lyla wants to stay professional but their attraction is about to combust.
Lyla discovers that there is a different side of Tom that not many people are privy to. He is not only funny but he is a good listener.
I loved Tom Cat from the first TMS book. His humor and loyalty as a friend was enough for me to want to read his own HEA. It did surprise me to know his softer side, his own turmoil, and I was happy to see that he could be responsible with the bands record company when needed.
Lyla was a little harder to like. She pushed Tom away more times than I wanted to read about but in the end she's the one who gets hurt and that tilted the axis.
I do have to say that even though I love Tom's story, Jake is still my favorite in this series.

“You’re not a mut. You’re an ex-mut.”
“An ex-mut. I like it. Makes me sound badass.”
“That this is it…you and me…we’re forever. You’re my heaven, Firecracker.”
