Tyke Douglas is tired of being the glue that holds the hottest band in the world together. If the rest of the guys are out doing their own thing, then why shouldn’t he? He’s about to turn things up a notch and bring a whole new level of crazy into Black Falcon’s world.

Francine Mead is putting her sordid past behind her and is determined to help others overcome their demons alongside her. The first step in her new life is taking a job as an addiction counselor, where she can mentor others through their struggles. Francine never expected to be lured back into temptation when her first sexy celebrity client, Tyke Douglas walks through her door. The moment she lays eyes on him, she’s in trouble.

Both Tyke and Francine know a relationship between them would be a disaster, but with each session, things continue to heat up, making it impossible to deny the connection they share. Boundaries cross, attractions heighten and both of their willpower's will be tested to the very limit.
Wow. I can't believe the series is over. I remember the moment I fell in love with the series and every couple since. I wasn't sure what to expect going into Tyke's story. He always seemed to be very focused on the music and the band. On the inside though, he was falling apart. 

Tyke was quite a mess. He was resentful and angry with the guys in the band for falling in love and basically...living their lives. Turning to drugs and alcohol was easy. It helped him to forget that the band dynamic was changing. After a few serious incidents involving his drinking and drugging, the band has had enough. Tyke has to get help or he's out for good. 

Frannie is a new counselor at the rehab. She has had her own set of issues to deal with. Getting involved with Tyke may not be the best choice, but the attraction is too strong to ignore. Now...there are some serious ethical issues here. But, this is fiction and we all want a HEA, right? And...I do know situations where this has happened, so I do understand the how and why. I wasn't bothered by it and I felt that Frannie did the right thing by handling the situation honestly. There were other issues that they had to move through, but I really enjoyed getting to know them as a couple. I appreciated seeing how they helped each other and seeing Tyke prioritize his life. As for the sexy...it was pretty dang hot!

There were a few pieces hat I would have like to see smoothed out or gotten more info on. For example, her sister's death and the issue with Arnold. I think I just felt that it was dealt with quickly. I also didn't quite understand her relationship with her family. Is is crucial to the story that I know these things? Maybe not, but I think I would have liked a bit more information. 

Overall, I enjoyed it. I like Tyke a lot more than I thought I would. Plus, he and Trip share my birthday, so obviously I think he's pretty special. I adored how everything came to an end. I loved seeing all the couples and where they were. I admit that I got a bit teary in the epilogue. I'll miss this crew, but they'll forever remain on my kindle...so that makes me feel a bit better. 

If you've followed this series, don't miss out on this book! Great ending to a stellar series!
