As a 19-year-old wunderkind doctoral candidate, Ian Waters had little interest in social interaction. Books were his companions, and that had suited him just fine. Then a hurricane named Jessen Sørensen blew into his life, throwing Ian off his axis.
On the cusp of rock stardom, Jessen had burned brightly, and Ian had fallen heart-first under his spell. But Ian soon learned he was only a temptation, a pit stop on the road to the rocker's dreams, and Jessen was gone as quickly as he'd come. Ian buried his heartache in academia, the only home he'd ever known.
When Ian encounters Jessen at a party, the seven-year separation seems insurmountable. There's too much pain, too much distrust. But Jessen declares he has a new dream, and that's a life with Ian.

Norwegian sexgod.

first i must say that im from Denmark. we understand Norwegian quite good. We might not speak it. But we know how it has to be said. And when bouth the auther can make a caractor say things in Norwegian and a narrator kan say it so you think he knows what he is doing. then he is doing a good job.
a Norwegian rockstar sexgod who is not afraid of his own sexuality. who can say no to that. Ian cant. And ofcourse he ends up with a broken heart. So broken that when Jessen comes back in his life 7 years later. He is still broken, and so afraid that he cant believe that Jessen wants him back.
my only problem with this book is that i really wished it was longer. I wanted more.
when i get a book from an auther for a review. I dont always read about it before. I like to get a Surprise. This book was of the good kind of Surprise. and i am so glad I Got a chance to review this. The auther is new to me. But this is not the last time I listen/ read her books. This was hot. And I love hot books.

Like a sweet caress

Ian and Jessen had a 7 year separation. Ian is determined to keep them separated but Jessen had quite a different plan drummed up. Ian and Jessen are so different. Ian is an academic and Jessen is a rock star, yet they are so perfect for each other.

The story was slightly rushed, making it a little hard to believe the connection but when they finally got together, the connection was believable. Oh so believable because this story was HOT HOT HOT. So, so much.

Tristan James did Jessen's accent, so it was easy to distinguish which character was speaking but it was difficult to distinguish between the narrative and Ian's conversation, if that makes sense. But his voice is very pleasant and he is a great narrator.

Jeg elsker denne boken (i love this book)

This was such a fantastic short, my only complaint is that I wish it was longer because I loved every second of it! I have also started learning Norwegian and so Jessen from Norway was a lovely surprise. You can tell the author and narrator did a lot of research and put thought into the book because the Norwegian and the accent Tristan James uses is believable. I liked the heat between Jessen and Ian is unmistakable and fantastic to read- with Tristan’s silky voice that compliments it and makes you shiver!
this was a short book with amazing detail and I did not feel anything was left out of rushed, as other short stories tend to be. It is a new author for me and I am now anxious to read more of her work, her writing was great and very touching and sweet. It was also funny at times with Ian’s internal banter and freak-out moments. It was such a fantastic read I really want to listen to it again and again. I just felt like I was too falling in love, in all the flashbacks, and that is something I really adore in books- they make you feel with the characters.
