Provoke (Seaside Pictures #3.7) by Rachel Van Dyken

My Rating: 4 Stars
Series: Yes, Seaside Pictures #3.7.
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Freeing his music again.
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Seaside Pictures series…

The music industry called me a savant at age sixteen when I uploaded my first video and gained instant fame. And then Drew Amherst of Adrenaline became my mentor, and my career took off.

Everything was great.

Until tragedy struck, and I wondered if I’d ever be able to perform again. I fought back, but all it took was a falling light to bring it all back to the fore. So, I walked away. Because I knew it wasn’t just stage fright. It was so much more.

The only problem?

Drew and the guys are counting on me. If I can’t combat the crippling anxiety threatening to kill me, I might lose more than I ever dreamed of.

Enter Piper Rayne, life coach, with her bullshit about empowerment, rainbows, and butterflies. She smiles all the damn time, and I'm ninety-nine percent sure there’s not a problem she can’t solve.

Until me.

She was given twenty-one days to fix me. To make me see what’s important. What’s real. The problem is, all I can see now is her. The sexy woman who pushes me. Provokes me.

Only time will tell if she’s able to do her job—and I can make her mine.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.** 

So... I love the Book, Braden and Piper story was hot from the start and super fun to read!

I had a little cringe moment when she risked her career in such a dumb way, I mean I get it, he is hot, but this was her life! She was super successful and she threw everything away for some guy she barely knew. 
That being said, and given that this is fiction, I'm completely down for the couple! They made sense, they probably should have held off until the end of her contract, or she could have resigned before she decided to make out with him publicly; but other than that, nothing wrong with getting some ;)

Braden was not okay, he had suffered something that was making it possible to perform and do what he loved. Someone had ruined that for him and he needed all the help he could get to get back out there.

Mixing therapy with sex seems like the worse idea, but it kind of worked out for them, thrusting her helped him trust himself again.

A beautiful and steamy story.
