True North (True #1) by Liora Blake

True North

Kate Mosely is a novelist. When she's invited to a Hollywood show to discuss her book she also meets the band and the hot lead singer Trevor “Trax” Jenkins. She notices him and he reciprocates her interest.  The look they share on live TV will change their future forever. 

For Kate things are not easy. She lives in Montana. She is a widow and she misses her husband terribly. The first time she feels anything is when she meets Trevor. These new feelings are exhilarating but also terrifying at the same time. She is scared of loving deeply again and Trevor has the potential to destroy her. Loosing him would be unbearable. 

Trevor has been a famous rock star for a while. He's matured and he's ready to give this relationship a chance. He will do anything in his power to spend the free time they both have to be together. But Trevor wants to make sure she's also ready to move forward. 

"Katie, if you’re watching, thanks for everything the last few months, baby. I love you.”

I love this book. The relationship progression played just the right way. No insta- love. Their long distance relationship was difficult but not impossible. I understand the guilty feelings she had. What she has experienced, has marked her. Letting go of the past and letting Trevor enter her heart and take over it was not an easy quest. 

I really loved Trevor. He was everything she needed and didn’t know she did. He entered her life at the right time. He was swoon worthy.

“I promise. I won’t leave. I won’t ever leave you, Katie.”

As far as the secondary characters go, I think Kate's sister needs a book. I’m very intrigued in regards to who she left behind. 

"If we aren't together, it isn't a life."

Cliffhanger: No

Every once in awhile, a book comes along that’s a true standout. One that’s special enough to consume my every thought and make me wish the story would never end.  A case of opposites attract, Trevor and Kate’s story was exactly that.  Their connection was undeniable, intense and full of pretty great banter.

Kate is a country girl at heart. She still calls the small Montana town she grew up in home. She lost her husband three years ago and she’s been consumed with guilt and regret ever since.  Her book, which has become a best seller, lands her a guest appearance on a late-night talk show in L.A. 

The infamous, Trax also happens to be appearing on the show the same night. Described as a thug, he was more Eminem in my eyes, than any other rockstar I could conjure up. He’s been living the lifestyle for years, touring, screwing groupies and getting arrested.  He’s garnered quite a reputation for himself.  But underneath the Trax persona, is Trevor.  The real, honest, genuine, and often vulnerable guy. Like Kate, it was impossible for me not to fall for him.

It’s in the green room of the late-night show that Kate and Trevor meet for the first time.  I thought it was cute that Kate really had no idea who he was. From first glance, there’s a connection and when they end up on stage together, it turns into shameless flirting. He tracks down her number and takes her to dinner, which changes everything for both of them.

“I wanted to make sure I got under your skin, because I wanted you to be as deep into me as I was into you.”

There was something so different about Trevor and I couldn’t get enough of him. I think it was his honesty and willingness to be vulnerable with Kate.  He always told her exactly what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to give chase the few times she was scared off or second guessing herself.  And to top it off, he was a bad boy with a huge heart.  Who doesn't love a bad boy?

“I’ve never loved a woman before. Not like this. Only you.”

To say Trevor and Kate were HOT together is an understatement. There aren’t adequate words to describe the intensity and deep connection they shared. Throughout the whole book, I found myself laughing, smiling or swooning at the things they would say to each other.  That’s what makes a story great in my eyes.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

“Will you let me love you forever, Kate?”

5/5 Fangs
