Review: Lush by Lauren Dane

This is the 3rd DELICIOUS Novel and features Mary and Damien…
USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane delivers a second serving of sexy in her new Delicious novel—in which taste and temptation make up a sweet recipe…

Mary Whaley has her hands full running a successful catering company and overseeing her supper club. She’s got everything she ever wanted—or so she thought. When she meets ridiculously hot and very dirty rock star Damien Hurley at her friend’s engagement party, the attraction she feels is overpowering—and she isn’t about to deny herself.
Damien is used to a hard and fast life. He and two of his brothers started a band when they were all in high school—then they hit the big time and stayed there. He’s also a legendary madman on the stage and in the bedroom. But when he meets Mary, something clicks, and the bad boy starts thinking he may have finally found something good.
What begins as a series of fleeting trysts soon get much more complicated. Damien can’t figure out why Mary doesn’t want more from him. And before long it’s Damien who wants more of Mary. But it turns out Mary is no stranger to the celebrity news and he’s got a very big job ahead of him—proving that he’s worth more than a one-night stand…

If you follow me, you know that I have read the first two books in this delicious series and loved them. Ms. Lauren had created a world within a world…. She has actually brought two worlds together. The Brown family and all their friends. Even if you don’t read this series or Lauren’s other series in order, I promise you won’t be lost. Ms. Lauren does an awesome job (as always) of entwining all of her characters together without overwhelming the story or taking away from the main characters of the story.  She does a great job at blending everyone’s lives together. In fact, she does it in such a way that you fall back in love with older characters. This story is still as delicious as the first two. 
Mary is one woman I have been waiting to meet. She is the backbone of her friends. Always pushing them, encouraging them, egging them on to make their dreams come true. She is the shoulder they lean on, the pillar of strength they come to when all else fails. She is the epitome of a strong woman. She is not stupid when it comes to rock star love… She has seen enough with her friends to know that it’s a bitch to deal… But when does it become worth it…. Is Damien worth it? Or is the heartbreak enough to make her close up her heart and move on….
Damien has lived the true life of a rocker. Never regretting anything in his past. He works hard, plays harder but love…. Well, that’s about to knock him off his ass. Just imagine a drummer of a successful rock band… Oh yea, you know what your dirty mind has thought of… The sweat, the muscles, the rumors of how good he is… Well, he is all that and a box of goodies too!! And a hell a personality to boot! But when he meets Mary… Well, let’s jus say that all the success in the world could not prepare him for her. He wants to give her the world and so much more, but will his on stage persona kill the relationship before it even starts… 
This is a wonderfully crafted story of two people who meet and instantly feel tingles in places there shouldn’t be… At least not to someone you only just met, right? 🙂 Mary and Damien will give you a run for your money in this delicious story. To watch these two do the dance of dating is amazing… One has to prove that his past is just that… His past… The other has to decide what she is willing to handle for the price of love… Is he worth it, is the relationship worth it… This story is priceless as it involves everyone… Down to the Mama’s!
Now I’m waiting for Raven’s story!!
