He’s been her ultimate untouchable desire. 

Nothing says happy birthday like a rock god flying thousands of miles to surprise a woman he's never met. But that's exactly what happens to Gabi Smith when she gives her long distance best friend a flippant invitation to her laid back girl’s night out. She never expected to turn on the dance floor and find Blake Kennedy’s gaze holding her body captive.

She’s his everything and he’s never laid eyes on her. 

Gabi means more to Blake than life itself. She’s his strength, his savior, and the only person who helped to vanquish his demons. No one means more to him than his angel. So when things between them start to sizzle, he's ready to fight for the future he never thought he would deserve.

Skeletons from his past will threaten his only chance at love... 

Blake has come a long way—with Gabi's help—to leave the hell of his youth behind him, but sometimes memories don’t want to stay buried. Determined to stand on his own for once, Blake is willing to stretch the truth to keep his troubles from burdening the woman he adores.

Little white lies can create black holes in any relationship. Only time will tell if an Aussie with a heart of gold will forgive her bad-boy boyfriend or if the deceit will end his passionate addiction.
I fell for Blake in the first book of this series and was excited that he was getting his own book, but sad that he wouldn't be single anymore! I am just glad he fell for a fellow Aussie girl with a heart of gold… I will just live my fantasies through her!

Blake appeared to be pretty put together in Blind Attraction, but I soon learned that he has pretty solid walls that he hides behind and even his own band members, who he is close to, didn't realise the depth of his struggles. The only person who does know is Gabi, a girl he met in an online chat room when he was in the lowest point of his life. She was able to help him through his tough times and they have been there for each other ever since.

Gabi, to me is a normal Aussie girl who has grown up on the Gold Coast in Queensland. She attends uni, works and surfs. Her friendship with Blake runs deep and she likes to stalk him over the internet to get glimpses of his life. She would drop anything if he needed her without hesitation and he has shown her the same courtesy when she needed him too. While out clubbing on her birthday she gets the surprise of her life.

I liked how Blake and Gabi’s friendship grew over four years online and through phones calls. Not once had they met face to face and Blake had not even seen a picture of Gabi… Until now! This was pretty exciting and I actually had butterflies myself leading up to their first meeting! I was keen to see this because I knew it would be hot, and it was a little awkward between them at times, but I wasn't disappointed. Their chemistry was off the charts and their bond was strengthened as they became more intimate.

Passionate Addiction is my favourite book so far in the series and I really enjoy Eden’s writing style. She ties together a powerful plot with witty remarks and produces a scorching story. I loved both of the characters and being able to see the other band members again too. Reckless Weekend is coming out soon and I am looking forward to what the band members and their families are going to get up to!

I'm glad it ROCKED! And now I really can't wait. Fantastic review!
