Back in September I had the fortune of “discovering” Elyssa Patrick. When asked to review her latest book, One Hit Wonder, I was excited and nervous because I wondered if I would like it as much as the first book or was the first book just a fluke. Even though this is a novella; I actually liked One Hit Wonder better because I enjoyed both of the main characters more. Would I have liked the story to be longer absolutely, but that’s true for any book I’m enjoying fully.
Damon Suarez is a former teen idol still living off his “one hit” and his dance move “The Glide.” He’s not embarrassed by the fact that he hasn’t produced anything new in over a decade and a half, he embraces what he had and still tours. He’s currently working on a comeback and thus he’s been trying to stay out of the limelight and out of trouble. He’s been able to do this because of his very able bodied assistant who keeps him on track and spins it when he falls.
There are days when Jane Timmons can’t believe she’s Damon’s personal assistant. Over two years she’s gotten to know him well. He’s a good boss, not overly demanding or abusive. The problem is Jane has come to realize she has very un-employee like feelings for Damon and has decided it’s best to leave her job. She has plans, but she’s also decided not to share those plans with him.
Right off the bat I fell in love with both of these characters. Damon while a little eccentric comes across as a really nice guy. He’s got a great sense of humor and seems to know how to enjoy life. When he realizes Jane plans on leaving his employ he decides to find a way to make her stay because he values her so much. Jane is caught between a rock and a hard place. She’s a great assistant; loyal, trustworthy, and totally in love with her boss. She enjoys working for Damon but has decided she can’t do it any longer.
Damon has Jane accompany him on a trip to New York during her last two weeks. Here they discover more about each other and spend some quality one on one time. When they are caught up in a flash mob, their attraction hits a fevered pitch and they give into their attraction for each other. Let’s just say Damon finds out that his buttoned up assistant isn’t quite the good girl he pictured her.
I admire Jane for finally owning up to her feelings for Damon. She really put herself out there and luckily for her the feelings were mutual and Damon had no problem sharing them. The relationship moved quickly, but I had to remind myself that these two have spent a ton of time together over two years.
In my review of Elyssa’s first book, I was upset that the epilogue left a lot of unanswered questions. The epilogue in this one was perfect and for that I am grateful, we know exactly where this couple is headed. One Hit Wonder is a wonderful story of two people finding each other at just the right time in their lives. It’s clever, funny, and of course very sexy!
