Still, she wouldn't be so blue about any of it if the career news hadn't come so hot on the heels of her breakup. This weekend sure had rubbed Shannon's nose in all of her failures. Her best friend had made her trip down the aisle the day before, even though Shannon had spent twice as long in a committed relationship as Amy.
While she was happy for her bud, Shannon's eleven-and-a-half-month stint with Romero had gone up in flames and it still hurt to be reminded of what she'd lost. She'd even had to close the French doors overlooking the ocean to drown out the chorus of orgasmic sighs drifting on the breeze. Unfortunately, shutting the door didn't shut down the conviction that one of the orgasmic sighs came from the woman her guitar-playing ex-boyfriend had danced with three times at the reception.
You know as well as I do how rare that is in this business. Why did Romero have to prod their limping relationship into gasping heart failure right when the rest of her world was coming apart? Especially since she'd been so careful to shield his artistically sensitive self from her problems so as not to disrupt his all-important songwriting. I just wanted to tell you not to worry about the dogs today. I'll be home in time to feed Abbott and Costello tonight.

A juvenile move that would feel great in the short run and only hurt more tomorrow. She'd made it three months without him, hadn't she?

She moved back to the closet and promptly stumbled on the slippers she'd tossed moments before. One pedicured toenail banged against a satin buckle on the discarded shoes and broke, tearing halfway across the nail bed. Pitching both slippers into the suitcase, where she should have put them in the first place, she hopped on one foot toward her purse to find a bandage for her injured ankle.
Shannon had been celebrating her fourteenth birthday with friends when her mom had taken too many sleeping pills. She'd never figured out if it had been intentional or not, but even after all the fights with her mother, Shannon missed her moments of clarity. When Bridget Leigh wasn't drugged up or foisting her own insecurities onto Shannon, she had been one of those bright light personalities that outshone anyone else in the room.
Shannon was clearing an unexpected lump from her throat when Ceily spoke again. I met a producer who knows that I rep you, and he asked me about the possibility of getting Romero to play himself in a docudrama about his old band, Jinxed.
Shannon's current career choices consisted of a sleazy independent film about her actress mother's life or a role on the smalltime theater circuit off Broadway, yet Romero didn't even need to pursue acting to find film roles. And, yeah, a bit of her ego smarted here, too. Part of it was because she struggled to get ahead in her job while everything Romero touched turned to gold.
Or maybe that's just how she felt every time he touched her.

And, oh, God, she couldn't stand the thought of him touching another woman when he'd been her man just three short months ago. From his killer dark eyes to the shoulder-length, silky black waves that would have done an eighties hair band proud, Romero was seriously hot. Even better, he wrote music that was soul deep and complex. His lyrics had seduced her long before the rest of him did. And Shannon could have a bit part in the "babes he'd banged" section of the docudrama. She yanked the headset off her ears to give it a shake.
But she'd tried so hard to fit into his life for so long that all the frustrations she'd been stuffing down had bubbled up like red-hot, angry lava. And from my memories of the two of you together, I'll bet he pays more attention to you than you realize. They'd fooled a lot of people into thinking they were wildly in love before the bottom fell out of a charade Shannon had nursed along out of pure wishful thinking.
She said goodbye to Ceily before hitting the disconnect button. Ceily's false impression of Romero still caring tweaked Shannon's heart more than she would have liked after this long time apart from the man. And, coming on the heels of the sexual symphony in progress around her, the conversation hadn't exactly improved Shannon's mood. She'd really thought Romero could be the one, yet he'd looked as if the breakup was no big deal to him when he'd soaked up feminine admiration and the La Paz sunshine yesterday. He'd never given her reason to be jealous in the past, but she wasn't foolish enough to think he hadn't moved on.
Flopping down onto the pillow-top mattress with her hair wrapped in a towel full of deep conditioner, Shannon squeezed her eyes shut tight and prayed for the next twenty-four hours to be over with as fast as possible. Romero had told her to meet him at ten that morning, but she would be ready to leave in five minutes.
She just wanted to get back home so she could officially end this chapter of her life. Once she moved to New York, she would put her movie career and her too-sexy ex behind her for good. Can t you go any faster? Romero Jinks tightened his grip on the steering wheel at his ex-girlfriend's latest request, in a litany that had started at nine o'clock that morning with a wake-up call asking him when he'd be ready to leave.
A Real Prince
Who woke up at nine after a wedding reception that had lasted into the wee hours of the morning? But that was Shannon. An early bird, a night owl, and all around too much energy for him to keep up with. At thirty years old, she seemed impossibly young to him even though they were only eight years apart.
Blond, blue-eyed and built like a fifties pinup girl, she was too sexy by half, but that was only a fraction of her appeal. He'd been drawn by her energy and enthusiasm when they'd first met. She'd been a spark to his creativity and his life, pulling him out of a long writing drought with her vibrancy. He'd been crazy about her until she'd blindsided him with a wealth of frustrations about their relationship, culminating in the stupidest argument he'd ever been a part of.
How many women picked a fight because their guy failed to purchase a pair of hiking boots for her? When he'd offered for them to spend some time apart until she cooled down, she'd promptly pulled his clothes out of the closet and boxed up everything he owned in an all-night packing craze. After almost a year together, she'd created a drama the whole neighborhood had witnessed as she'd methodically carried the crates out to the curb. The last thing he wanted was to extend their time in Mexico with a stint in a stink-hole prison cell.
They'd passed the last town, Insurgentes, long ago in the hunt for a shortcut home. He was seriously tearing up his new car driving this fast on pavement that hadn't seen a road crew in a decade.

Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. After breaking up with her rock star boyfriend, Shannon is happy to head to Mexico for a wedding. What she doesn't expect is to run into her ex. She's forced to deal with him - and stuck with him for her ride back home. Will they be able to rekindle their romance?
Or will outside forces ruin any chances they have to be together? She Thinks Her Ex Is Sexy might just make you wish you were stuck in the desert with your own rock star Shannon is a strong woman with her own career goals and is ready to take on the New York Theater. But after agreeing to be maid of honor at her best friend's wedding, she is almost forced into accepting a ride back home when her flight is cancelled. She should have said no, but then the gossip rags would have went to town on them. They both fought and fought their attraction to each other. After getting stranded in the desert, they both learn that what they thought kept them apart isn't what was really keeping them from fully exploring their relationship.
Past history really interferes with them moving forward. The course of true love is never easy - especially when neither one of them really talks about their issues and what they really want. I found She Thinks Her Ex Is Sexy to be an interesting look at how much can go wrong in a very short time without constant communication. It's easy to fall in love, but it's a lot of work to stay in love.
Blaze mini series
Vivian Reviewed for Joyfully Reviewed. Joanne Rock never fails to impress with her story-telling skills. Rock still seamlessly develops her hero's and heroine's back stories so you can understand and sympathize with what drives them, motivates their reactions. I found myself wanting to take sides over their break-up. They became real friends who I wanted to see make a go of their relationship because they would make a great couple if they could just get past the past.
