I’m Blake McQueen, daughter of Miles McQueen: businessman, politician, all around upstanding member of the community.I’m told that name means something, but well, I’ve pretty much doused it in petrol, set it on fire, and taken a shit on it for good measure. I like to think of myself as a walking middle finger.My name is now synonymous with booze, parties, sex, and drugs. I have to read the newspaper in the morning just to see where I was, possibly who I fucked, and judge my state of inebriation based on how much tit or minge is splashed across page five.
Judge me all you like, love me, hate me. I don’t give a fuck.
Life’s a party and you should never stop dancing.
But even the sweetest of highs has it’s low. There is only so high you can go before you fall, and fall I did, right into the arms of the only man that could possibly stop me from crashing and burning. I’ve always been untouchable. I’ve never cared enough to be touchable. Until now.
Love is the most destructive drug of all.

I was really excited when this story came up for review. I wanted to see what the author would do with this age-old story-line … a girl with the power to have everything at the snap of her fingers except the one thing we crave most in the world, love and acceptance.
Blake McQueen has grown up in a world of smoke and mirrors. Nothing is ever what is seems and people are never what they seem. Her life is just one big lie. Appearance are everything, no matter the cost. But she’s a rebel. She refuses to live by her family’s societal rules. She uses sex and drugs as an escape and every possible means to get her shenanigans on the front page. Whatever she has to do to embarrass daddy, she does …
Rhett Torres is no hero, so I won’t refer to him as that, but he does play our lead in this story. He’s an old one-night stand that should have stayed a one-night stand but since Dad disapproves and Blake is always so high she can’t remember her name half the time, he seems like a winner to her! (and in the end … he just might be the jackpot lol)
This is not a rainbows and gumdrops read. SO, if you’re looking for an easy HEA, then this might not be the read for you. It’s emotional and edgy, a little dark but mostly, just one huge angst roller-coaster you have no idea when will end…. until it does 🙂
LP Lovell managed to mix heart-warmth with gut wrenching angst, perfectly. She told a story with serious content perfectly and mixed the right amount of humor and with to balance the realism.
She’s a self-confessed shameless pervert, who may be suffering from slight peen envy.
