They were married but never kissed.
That night years ago never had consequences…until now.
“I wasn’t into the love bullshit and I didn’t really believe in forever between two people.’’
If I had my way, I would have never seen Maxen Walton again, the womanizing drummer of Kinky Shine.
When I met him in college he was already going through girls as if they were disposable. I had always hated him. Yet, for some drunken reason I ended up marrying him in Las Vegas. That night, right before I puked in the fake flowers and left the tacky chapel was the last time I had laid eyes on him.
Until my boyfriend asked me to marry him.
Now, I was in LA trying to get a divorce from my husband without the press hearing about it.
What I didn’t expect was that my famous husband affected me and that getting to know him would change a lot more than I ever planned.
“All I saw now was Lark, always and forever out of my reach, always driving me crazy.’’
I had only ever met one woman who equally drove me crazy and made me want her until I forgot my name.
Lark Hardin.
And I married her one crazy night in Las Vegas.
Freshly out of rehab and trying like hell to get back in the game while convincing my best friend I wouldn’t relapse, seeing my wife again was the last thing I needed for that.
Life liked f*cking with me, though.
Here she was, so sexy I would damn myself to be inside her just once, but she wasn’t here for me. She was here to get a divorce so her perfect boyfriend had free range to marry her.
She still hated my guts on the sole principle that I was a womanizing f*cker, but maybe she would open her eyes and see beyond that part of me.
I just hoped it wouldn’t be just for the sex because this woman had always been my weakness.
She had the power to destroy me.
“I’d spent the better part of my life hiding behind my bright smile and loud laugh, pushing everything away by using sex, but that was over.’’
*For readers over 18.
Can be read as a standalone but if you want the full Kinky Shine experience don't miss the first book.*

DNFed in the freaking prologue!!!
I debated about signing up for this one. I knew Maxen had been a manwhore and had a drug habit, and I knew the heroine was seeing someone else. The Sweet Home Alabama premise was either going to work or not, and I figured a lot of that depended on the story focusing on the H and the h and not other people. But I had hopes that the author could pull it off. The only reason I considered this title was because Dex, the first book in the series, was so well written and the rockstar hero was a celibate wet dream, a refreshing spin for sure. So color me utterly disappointed that the opening scene of Maxen is one of the most trite, overused, and unromantic tropes in romance.
When oh when will this ‘h hears/sees the H having sex with another woman’ theme go away??? It’s like a bad venereal disease that not only keeps coming back, it spreads. It’s unoriginal, unattractive, and it’s completely counterproductive to creating chemistry between the H & h. I can’t unread it, and I can’t connect with the characters as a couple afterwards.
My supermarket was out, so this one gets tossed in the DNF pile.
Edited to add: I should also note that the entire chapter of the prologue is written in italics. This is very annoying and unnecessary. As the prologue, it's easily understood that it's taking place before the rest of the chapters or in the past. Italics is something to be used sparingly.

Lark should be having the most amazing night of her life, but unfortunately, she just had to turn down her boyfriend’s proposal because she is already married. Maxen is a rock star who doesn’t act like he is married, but still remembers that drunken night in Vegas. What should be a quick divorce turns into a whirlwind of events. Will Lark get the divorce she is wanting, or will she see that things aren’t always what they seem?
Lark is stubborn, outgoing, and outspoken. She says what she is thinking and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. She is very protective of those she loves and has such a big heart.
Maxen is a womanizer who hides his pain behind extracurricular activities. He uses his smile and laugh to distract others from getting to know the real him.
These two have hated each other from the start, and they cannot have a conversation without arguing. The chemistry between these two is apparent to everyone but them. The back and forth between these characters was tension packed and you tell when they started to shift from hate to love. Their walls around their hearts start to crumble and you finally get to see the softer, more vulnerable side of both characters.
This book was such a fun read. Learning about these characters and their friends left me wanting more. I’m going back to read Dex now. His story seems very intriguing. I can’t wait to see how his story began and how the other guys’ stories play out.

The Kinky Shine series just keeps getting better. Ms. Witter has given us yet again another rock romance that you can’t put down. There is a fine line between love and hate and that is exactly what Lark has going on with Maxen. They had known each other since Lark’s freshman year at college because Alan, who is a close cousin to Lark, was friends with the guys in the rock band Kinky Shine.
Their very first meeting was one for the books. Lark had been disgusted with Maxen and the way he lived his sex life which really wasn’t out of line for a sexy looking drummer in a band about to make it big. Lark made it known to Maxen that she wasn’t like the other girls he was normally with. A quick trip to Vegas Lark and Maxen got married on a dare while partying hard to celebrate with the guys signing with a label. No consummation to this marriage since Lark had taken off for home the very next morning wanting to forget what had happened.
Now five years later what better thing to tell your current boyfriend that you can’t accept his proposal for marriage because you are already married! Things just get better from there when Lark heads to LA to ask Maxen for a divorce. I loved the chemistry between these two which is what made this book so d*mn good. I can’t wait for this series to continue and even though Maxen could be a standalone do yourself a favor and read Dex’s story first.
I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.

Contrary to the tagline “whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” isn’t necessarily true. Particularly for Maxen Walton, the legendary Rock Star, drummer for the band Kinky Shine. Despite a drunken fight to Las Vegas with the band and friends while in college, there might have been a drunken bet. Shortly after Vegas the band was signed to a recording contract. Now five years later, the memory of a little oops has never left him, and now that oops is demanding to be acknowledged and resolved. Maxen’s only tangible memory is the plain silver ring he wears on a chain around his neck. Despite years filled with successful creative music, countless one-night stands, a comfortable home, and more money than he can possibly spend, the memory of that trip to Vegas has never left his dreams and memories of the one who got away.
To be completely honest, I was not prepared to love this book as much as I did! Stephanie Witter has captured real and engaging characters, the fact that they play music for a living is secondary to the bond and humor they share. Hysterical dialogs, confessions, intrusive press, worried parents, conniving parents, and the fact that passion can only be masked for just so long, make this a non-stop read. Happy to give MAXEN five stars, as I plan to re-read and enjoy again.

Move over Lark Hardin, I want me some Maxen Walton!! Boy is this character Hot, not only is he a pretty face but he’s also the kickass drummer from Kinky Shine. This tattoos, muscles and swoon worthy grin would make any woman weak at the knees.
Lark is nice, but she could be irritating in a stuck-up, snooty Kinda way. She’s the polar opposite of Maxen but they’re oddly suited, in a roundabout kind of way.
I found the ‘steamy scenes’ a little long winded and seemed to go on forever and ever and I thought to myself ‘girl, you need to get him naked already’ but it was still hot none-the-less.
Loved the whole storyline, it’s different from anything I’ve read before and it was eye-catching and adrenaline-rushing all at once.
Another fabulous story from Stephanie Witter, I’m a huge fan and her work never ceases to amaze me.
