Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, girls. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie is the son of Hollywood A-listers, and when he’s asked to join the boy band Virtuous Paradox, his star shoots even higher. But so do expectations, leading Bodhi down a destructive path of addiction—until a drop-dead gorgeous guardian angel shows him her sizzling brand of tough love.
When Bodhi ends up in rehab, he doesn’t expect to meet someone as cool and down-to-earth as Kimberly Gordon. Although he’s enjoyed the company of beautiful, charming women before, none of them have tried to get to know the “real” Bodhi. But Kimberly isn’t fazed by his stardom. She’d rather go horseback riding, teach Bodhi to play guitar, or ask him about his feelings. Soon Bodhi realizes he’s fallen head over heels for her. He just hopes that he’s strong enough to protect what they have from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
I didn’t think I’d miss seeing Bodhi as much as I do. The feelings I have go beyond longing: my chest hurts, my mind is elsewhere and unfocused, my skin feels like a thousand needles are jabbing me at any given time, and I’m constantly hearing his voice even though I know he’s not here.
Blow is my first book by Heidi McLaughlin. I enjoyed this book and the message that it conveyed to me as a reader.
Bodhi McNight is a member of the rock group Virtuous Paradox. His life is spinning out of control due to a cocaine addition. Like any addict, Bodhi doesn’t think that he has a problem, but everything comes to a head after a month long bender. An intervention is staged and Bodhi is forced to go to rehab or lose everything.
Kimberly Gordon works at Serenity Springs, a rehab facility owned and run by her father, Dr. Gordon. She is assigned to help Bodhi through his stay. She is a fan, but isn’t fond of Bodhi as a person. He has everything, fame and fortune and throws it all away for a temporary high. However, when she meets the broken man, she realizes that there is more to Bodhi McNight than what she has read on the internet.
Blow is a good read. It is a feel good story about self discovery and overcoming one’s demons. You can’t help but like Bodhi despite his flaws. Kimberly is a great character and her support of Bodhi really brings the story together. Books that have messages always give me a good feeling. The message that Blow conveys is that you can overcome anything, even addiction as long as you want it bad enough or have something worth working hard for. A truly good read.
