Having read the previous books in the series, I couldn't wait to read Mason and Sidney's story. Mason was spiraling and had pushed everyone away for years after the scandal had happened. Sidney had lost so much and was struggling with her life after it all went down. Every time they had met afterwards was like pouring gasoline on a fire as they were both hurt and bitter as a result. That all changes when Sidney is asked to write with Mason again to get him out of a slump. In that close of quarters they have to face how they feel both about what they suffered and about each other. That attraction hasn't gone away. Now add a creepy mystery stalker to the mix and you have a roller coaster ride that could lead to a second chance at love. I so enjoyed their story.
I give Undesired Lust 4 hearts!
About the Book
They used to be the perfect team.
Two years ago, songstress Sidney Higgins ruined her life by sleeping with not one, but two of the famous Reckless Beat men, Mason Lynch and Sean Taiden. Their night of intimate celebration turned into a worldwide sensation when the video Mason vowed to keep private was uploaded to the internet, destroying her squeaky-clean reputation and turning the world against her. Now she’s broken and left without hope, trying to find the one thing that can get her back on her feet.
A mistake neither one of them is willing to forgive.
When the sex tape went viral and his best friends held him accountable, Mason bore the stigma of asshole with pride. Now, bitterness has destroyed him, driving away his muse and making him worthless in the industry he loves. There’s only one option left to reclaim his creativity, but that would mean collaborating with a woman who wants to castrate him with a plastic knife.
A palpable chemistry even hate can’t diminish.
Forced to work together, neither one of them is prepared for the undesired lust which immediately takes hold. The lies fade away, exposing the truth; however, it also awakens a threat from their past. The person responsible for tearing them apart is back to ensure they don’t rekindle a spark. With their safety in the balance, Sidney and Mason need to determine what they’re willing to risk to reclaim a relationship they wish they’d never lost.
Interview with Mason Lynch
Mason: Mason Lynch aka Mr. Fanfuckingtastic
Mason: I have a remarkably annoying sister, Toni. And my mother is as harmless and annoying as a moderately sized hemorrhoid.
Mason: Brown eyes, Blonde hair. 100% fuckable, if I do say so myself.
Why will reader sympathize with this person right away?
Mason: Not at all. He’s arrogant, annoyingly so. But if you did a little deeper, you might expose someone different.
In your opinion, what is your best feature?
Mason: Just one? It’d be a shorter list if I mentioned my worst features.
Where do you live?
Mason: I have two homes. A mansion in Richmond, Virginia where I can relax and spend time in the studio at my leisure. I also have a penthouse apartment in New York where all the craziness happens.
What one word best describes you?
What were you like in high school?
Mason: I was in the popular crowd. Always have been.
What were your high school goals?
Mason: Does popping cherries count?
What is your boss like?
Mason: Leah Gorman, the Reckless Beat band manager is a pit bull. If my mother is a hemorrhoid, Leah is akin to a colonoscopy. She’s always up my ass, trying to expose all the shit she can in an effort to ‘protect me from myself’.
What are your bandmates like?
Mason: My bandmates are my brothers. I love them with all my heart and want to kill them in the same breath.
What is something you had to learn that you hated?
Mason: To be humble. I’m not very good at it.
Is there any sexual activity that you will not, under any circumstances, do?
Mason: I will never, ever again tape myself having sex.
Describe the perfect romantic partner for you.
Mason: I’ve been told the best partner for me would be someone who could love me more than I love myself. I’m not sure I’ll ever find that woman.
What do you do when you are bored?
Mason: I don’t have the luxury of boredom. If I’m not on tour, doing promo or with friends, I’m creating music for the next album. It never stops. Hopefully it never will.
Interview with Eden Summers
on Undesired Lust
on Undesired Lust
Hello and Welcome All!
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Eden Summers author of the Reckless Beat series.
Hi Eden, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Eden: Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here.
What do you do when you are not writing?
Eden: Drink vodka…does that count?
In reality, I’m either doing motherly duties for my two boys, working part time or reading. Most of the time I’m writing though, or promoting J There isn’t a lot of spare time to do much else once the word target is hit for the week.
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way wither growing up or as an adult?
Eden: There’s a long list of authors who have taught me innumerable things, from how to write, to what NOT to do when writing and promoting.
It’s a constant learning process. The industry is changing all the time with authors pushing new boundaries.
If you could have given your characters one piece of advice before the opening pages of the book, what would it be and why?
Eden: To both Sidney and Mason — forgive and forget. Suck it up. Deal with it. Move on…Remember a condom!
But if I told them that beforehand we wouldn’t have Undesired Lust ;)
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
Eden: Both protagonists are song writers, so I had a great deal of fun writing lyrics. Mason’s muse plays with him throughout Undesired Lust. You get to see the snippets that are thrown into his head at any given time. And there are also a few verses from a humorous song Sidney put together on the spot, which is dedicated to Mason’s womanizing ways.
Which of your prior characters would you most/least likely invite to dinner and why?
Eden: I’m always going to be a sucker for Blake from Passionate Addiction—tattooed, damaged and big-hearted—he’s my go-to guy. I’d love to sit down with him and let him know just how proud I am of him.
There may also be the need to swipe all the food from the table and have my wicked way with his inked body too.
Thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to take part in this interview.
Eden: Thank you for having me. I hope you all enjoy my rockers.
