My heart doesn’t beat, it ticks.

It’s been that way since I was sixteen years old and I caught my sister in bed with my boyfriend.

I gave my heart to a boy who didn’t deserve it, then spent the next few years indulging in hard drugs and even harder sex.

Life is easier when you don’t get attached. Casual. No commitments. That’s the rule. At least it was before he came along.

Cash Davidson is the tattooed prince who walked into the restaurant where I work and turned my life upside down.

He is everything I never knew I needed. There’s just one problem.


He’s my best friend’s dad.




Cherry Bomb by Carmel Rhodes is an explosive love story that set my heart on fire, burning bright as I inhaled every captivating word these characters had to offer. Cherry Valentine and Cash Davidson’s forbidden romance is a ticking time bomb just waiting to explode at any moment as their secret love continues to blossom.

The chemistry between these two left an intense ache deep in my chest and it’s one that slowly obliterated my heart. The angst level was so perfectly intertwined throughout the pages that it had me on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading. My attention was entirely captured by their story that I ended up reading it in just one sitting…yep that’s right, I didn’t put it down once until I reached the very end.

It’s hard to believe that this was the first book I have read from this author, but I am so freaking glad that I came across this phenomenal story and gave it a chance. Forbidden romances are my jam and this talented lady ended up writing one of my new favorite reads! I cannot freaking wait to see what this author comes up with next and I can only hope to see more of these characters in future interconnected books!



About Carmel Rhodes

Writer of words. Mother of Joy. Wife of Compassion. I like to write stories about real people who go through real struggles, and come out the other side stronger. I also like to write smut. Welcome to my brain. It’s a little screwed up, but always well intended.
