About Sheer: 

The long-awaited conclusion to the series that brought you NUDES (“passionate, emotional, and uplifting!” – #1 NY Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely) and BARE (“heartfelt and sexy!” – USA Today Bestselling Author Kate Meader), a young singer with stars in her eyes falls for a composer whose sordid background might strip them bare. Grant Mercer is on the run from his secrets… This was supposed to be an easy assignment—travel halfway across the globe and compose the musical score for an upcoming Hollywood movie by one of the biggest production companies in Los Angeles. One and done like dozens of times before. I wasn’t supposed to have my entire life crumble around me the moment my plane took off. I wasn’t supposed to meet her. Intriguing and covered in ink, Simone enters my life like a storm, leaving only heartbreak in her wake. I should keep my distance. Hell, she should keep hers. Instead, we did the exact opposite. Simone Reynolds is mending a broken heart… Just months after finaling in one of television’s most watched singing competitions, I should be riding the high of my life. I should be celebrating starring in a musical film predicted to rock the box office. It’s hard to bask in my success when my family is suffering a loss we never saw coming. And then there’s Grant—brooding and rugged and an absolute pain in my ass as he messes with my movie. He’s as broken as I am, but the perfect harmony is only a leap of faith away. 


I enjoyed this title. I loved the instant attraction between Grant and Simone, and I believed in it. I loved the slightly taboo aspect of their relationship, with him being in charge of the musical score of her latest production and her the lead actress. But, like it says in the blurb, things rarely happen when they are convenient or make sense.

I liked both of the characters, I liked that Simone was take charge and willing to go after what she wanted, or in this case, who she wanted. I liked that she went into the relationship with her eyes open and understanding that this might not be permanent.

There were some moments of angst, and the last scene with them in Los Angeles was heartbreaking. But, I also felt that there was a lot that was skipped over with the time jumps, that there was more that we could have seen with the "issue" that he was dealing with. It seemed overwrought, like it was more of a deal than it would be and would not happen that way, and then it seemed really dramatic, and then it seemed almost anticlimactic with how quickly it was resolved.

I am also still a little torn on the final part of the book and the way it was done. I understand the reason the author chose to handle it this way, but at the same time, I felt that we were a little cheated with the Simone and Grant story, and that it resolved very quickly at the end.

I did enjoy this title, and I do recommend it, even though I had some minor issues with the way it was constructed.
