Publisher's Summary

From international best-selling author, Lexy Timms, comes a forbidden romance that'll set your heart racing. She'd given up on love. He didn't have time for it. She thinks he's a stuck up pretty boy who doesn't care about anyone but himself, and he thinks she's a stuck up prude who wouldn't know how to "put out" if she tried.

Antonio Riverra AKA Tony Rivers comes from a lower class background, raised in the rough streets of gang-infested L.A. His only saving grace was his mother who was a dance teacher. However, Tony kept his knowledge of ballet a highly-guarded secret. He's applied for early admission to a number of California performing arts colleges, but earned a scholarship to small but prestigious school, the San Oaho College of Visual and Performing Arts.

Allison (Allie) Holbrook is the rebellious daughter of a rich man. She doesn't know her mother, as she was abandoned on her father's doorstep when she was three. Since a paternity test confirmed she was his, Jefferson Holbrook took financial but not emotional responsibility for her. He had a nanny care for her until she was old enough to go to boarding school. She's had the best of everything but good role models. Because her father controls everything about her life, and Jefferson believes the only thing a rich man's daughter should do is marry a rich man's son, he sends her off to the San Oaho College of Visual and Performing Arts while he finds her a husband. Does love have limits? At what cost? Out of nowhere, when Allie least expects it, Tony crashes into her life. Now, the stakes have never been higher.

This is steamy romance, not erotica.

Lexy

So I've read lexy Timms books before. Great work. but this one for me was a little slow starting. It picked up and got a little more interesting, but not what I was into. Thanks

Wonderful story!!!

Love Life and Audiobook by Lexy Timms is a unique, fascinating, engrossing story about Antonio (Tony) and Allison (Ally). She’s a wealthy, privileged girl studying at an elite school for Visual and Performing Arts. Tony is a young man struggling to rise above his life in the slums. He lands a prestigious entry to the school, on merit….the token entry to the school. Narrated by Stacy Hinkle who, overall, did a good job…I had so much difficulty get past the mispronunciation of dance terms…it nearly drove me nuts. If you are narrating a book that has lots of dancing….learn how to pronounce dance terms like plié. The story was a good story and I thorough enjoyed it. There was a cliffhanger at the end….which I really don't care for….but, oh well!!! I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.

Enjoyed this Listen

I wasn't excited about this book in the beginning but, it grabbed my interest as it went on. Unfortunately it was a cliff-hanger. But, it was worth the time. The narrator did an excellent job.

Desperate need of a sensitivity reader!

Would you try another book from Lexy Timms and/or Stacy Hinkle?

Got to 50% and just couldn't take another stereotypical description. This book was obviously written by an outsider of the particular culture she was writing about. Something that could have taken a quick Google search was obviously avoided. Another story about a pretty rich white girl slumming it with an unprivileged Latino kid. Tony wasn't a human being he was every stereotype I've ever seen on a Latin person rolled up.into one. Couldn't make it through the rest of the book. This is the last time I'll read a Latin hero written by a white author not willing to do the research to make him a developed character.

Has Love Life turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not necessarily, but it has turned me off to white women writing MoC love interests.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stacy Hinkle?

No one can save this story

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love Life?

Every stereotypical play at Tony.
