No Strings Attached
A single mom. A legendary rock star. Is there a chance for love?
There were a lot of things Alex Franzetti swore he'd never do again. Drugs. Alcohol. Performing. Above all, Alex Franzetti swore he would never again fall in love. Men like him didn't deserve love, not after what he'd done.
But there were just as many things Alex Franzetti couldn't resist, and putting a spoiled, out-of-control up-and-coming rock star in his place is one of them. When the infamous Jimmy Reilly embarrasses both his niece and his sister while recording at Alex's studio, Alex can't resist stepping in and teaching the young guitarist a lesson.
There was just one thing Alex wasn't expecting: Jimmy's sister, the admittedly hot and irresistible Em.
Being a single mom to a precocious daughter and a pseudo-mom to her younger brother, Em is used to doing what it takes to survive. But with a spiraling rock star for a brother and a daughter begging for guitar lessons that she knows Jimmy won't bother with, she turns to the only person she knows who might step in: the older, unreasonably sexy owner of a local recording studio, Alex... but can the burgeoning chemistry between two people separated by twenty-five years survive when a devastating secret threatens their friendship?
No Strings Attached is the award-winning novella about Em, a former alt-model turned single mom, and Alex, a world-renowned guitarist haunted by tragedy. This story features tattoos, rock stars, angst, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
