Review ~ For The Love Of A Lush (Lush #2) By Selena Laurence

For the Love of a Lush (Lush No. 2)

Genre: Edgy Contemporary Romance
Release Date:  May 29, 2014


Six months ago, Walsh Clark was the drummer of America’s hottest rock sensation, Lush. Now he’s living at the Double A Ranch in north Texas, home to cows, cowboys, and lushes—like him. He’s survived alcoholism, rehab, and the breakup of his band. But the one thing Walsh might not survive is the return of his ex fiancée Tammy DiLorenzo.

Tammy and Walsh met at fourteen, and she was with him on every step to fame and fortune—until one fateful night when she betrayed him. Now she’s back, begging for forgiveness and ready to fight for her man. But some betrayals are too painful to forget, some mistakes can’t be repaired, and Walsh is certain that he and Tammy can’t ever be together again.

But DiLorenzo women don’t back down, and Tammy always gets what she wants. In the wake of the lies and losses, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes for a second chance. She’ll give it all—for the love of a lush.

Firstly I want to thank Selena for kindly providing me with a copy of FTLOAL to read and review for her recent blog tour, unfortunately I wasn’t able to provide me review at the time, due to being in hospital for the past week, but I’m currently catching up on my workload 🙂
This was an intense and nail biting read and I loved the way the author wrote about the everyday occurrences of someone living with being an alcoholic and his trials and tribulations in him overcoming his demons.
Walsh was not only betrayed by the woman he has loved since he was 14 years old but also by his best friend. He is an absolute mess. He is focused on getting his life back together by working his AA steps, fighting his alcoholism and starting a new life for himself, a life without alcohol, a life without his band mates….but most of all a life without the love of his life….Tammy.
Their tragic life story is truly a LOVE LUSH story, this story had you wanting more and more as you kept turning each page and in the next minute BANG, your sucked into more whirlwind of family, love, betrayal and recovery with this gang of friends and family members.
I felt sorry for Tammy throughout the book. She was so sorry for her mistake and loved Walsh so much. She wanted to fight for him and his love but didn’t really know how to do it, all the while battling her own demons. I love that she never gave up on Walsh. Her love for him remained strong. Even when she realized that the best thing to do was to let him have his space.
This book is very touching and will bring tears to the readers eyes, but its never a dull moment with humour and characterizations that will make you smile.

A Lush Betrayal

(Lush No. 1)


Joss Jamison has it all. He’s the lead singer for the world’s hottest rock band, Lush. He’s wealthy, sexy, talented…and miserable. Twelve months ago, Joss lost his finely honed control and made a mistake he can’t undo. A mistake that could end up costing him his best friend, his band, and maybe his heart.

Mel DiLorenzo has it all. She’s been hired to document the world tour of her sister’s fiance’s rock band. She’s gorgeous, talented, loved…and sick of being the little sister. When she agrees to the summer job, Mel has no idea she’s walking into a minefield of friendships lost and hearts destroyed. She also has no idea what it means to be the object of Joss Jamison’s affections.

One hot rock star plus one life-altering mistake, add a dash of sexy younger sister and a handful of broken hearts, and you’ve got a recipe for fire. Life on the road can be hot, but for the boys of Lush, it’s about to get a whole hell of a lot hotter.
