"Jack Who?: Perfect Storms (Silver Strings G Series Book 1)" by Lisa Gillis

Jack Who?: Perfect Storms
(Silver Strings G Series Book 1)
by Lisa Gillis

Jack Who?: Perfect Storms is the first book in the Silver Strings G Series. Also available: Weathering Jack Storm. Snow Storms, the third book in the series, has just been released.

Marissa is a craps dealer and in one quick second that she never wants to remember, her life turns to crap. Her best friend convinces her that the cure for a breakup is a hookup, and reluctantly, she heeds this advice.
However, Jack (what was his name again?) is not the average girl's fling.
Jack is a celebrity in his niche of the music world and Marissa has no idea of his public identity.
Five minutes after parting, Marissa holds no illusions about seeing him again, but does vow a new outlook on her life and herself.
Five days later, they exchange a very short text.
Five months later, Jack astounds her with an invitation to Los Angeles. Although Jack is now a star in her very non rock star fantasies, Marissa is concealing a huge secret that prevents her from accepting.
Five years later, the secret comes out and despite the conflicting emotions each feels towards the another, they must meld their two worlds together.

The door burst open stopping her heart for more reasons than startled surprise. The door jamb framed the finest specimen of the male species she had ever beheld.
Her eyes were drawn first to the massive expanse of bare chest, and the six pack, just on the verge of an optical eight pack. A convulsive swallow tightened her throat. Fully inked sleeves tapered off between his shoulders and collarbone barely meeting at the throat. Denim jeans snugly encased his legs, and the button of the fly was open revealing the barest tip of hair on a flat abdomen. Reluctantly bringing her gridlocked gaze upward, past these heavenly sights, her look landed on his striking features and finally stopped on deep chocolate-brown irises.
A smile had worked well for her thus far and somehow she summoned one yet received a scowl in return. Shaggy, dark hair brushed his shoulder when his chin directionally jerked toward the asphalt beside where she stood.
“What the hell are you doing with my dog?”

Book Trailer

A wonderful book that is easy to read and smoothly written. The characters are funny and personable. Ms Gillis did a wonderful job in balancing the tension in the rekindled romance without allowing her characters to become whiney or monotonous.
Highly recommend this book.
