Her life is just as messed up as her name.
All she wanted was a friend—one that knew her and not her circumstances. She needed somewhere to call home. Hers was an open door for countless men looking for the services her mother offered them. She camouflaged herself against lockers and blackboards to avoid the stares and whispers at school.
And then she found Cal…and Fade.
Cal lives like Frankenstein, rising at night to work and just trying to make it until dawn. He avoids most relationships, afraid of the things he will be asked to do. He moonlights as Fade, a radio station DJ who spends hours counseling his peers on their troubles. It was all mundane until Jocelyn called the station.
Cal and Havok pursue a friendship.
Jocelyn and Fade pursue a relationship beyond the confines of the radio waves.
But when Havok disappears, Cal will find that Havok has been guarding a lifetime worth of secrets. And when Fade and Jocelyn’s all night phone conversations cease, he finds a link between them he never saw coming.
I always enjoy Lila Felix books. Whenever I am in the mood for something sweet, I seek out something that she has written. I even go so far as to make sure that I always have an unread Lila Felix book in my tablet in case of emergencies. I know, it’s bad! Lol
Seeking Havok, won’t take over as my favorite Lila Felix novel, but I enjoyed it . Havok Daniels hates everything about her name. She hates what the word “havoc” represents, and she hates the fact that her mother didn’t even care enough to spell the word right when she was cursing her with that name. I personally love the name Havok. One of my favorite things about this author’s style of writing is the names she comes up with for her main characters. You won’t ever find a Kate, Emily, Tom, or John being the lead in a Lila Felix book.
Unfortunately, Havok is not just her name though. She has to endure quite a lot of it in her life. Her mother is a drug addicted prostitute, and Havok does all that she can to live a life that is bearable in spite of that fact. She has a dependency upon taking care of and being needed by her mother that is crippling her. But even though she knows this is the case, she doesn’t know how to change things.
The one bright spot in her life, is listening to the sexy voiced DJ, Fade. Fade spends the hours between 11:00pm. and 7:00am. helping the unlucky in love solve their problems, and he is also the only reason Havok has to smile when she is at home.
Fade and Havok meet and there is an instant attraction, but because he gives her a different name, Havok has no idea that Cal, the awesome guy who she is falling for is also Fade. I thought this was going to be a huge issue because Fade had problems with dating women who were fans of his show, but it actually wasn’t that big of a deal. In fact, another thing I enjoy about this author’s writings is the way she rarely has the couples in her books hurt one another. The problems come from outside sources or inner demons, but they usually express their insecurities with each other and work them out. Romance novels without some sort of tension are just boring, but I also love it when the main characters never question their love for each other. Havok and Fade were no exception to this rule.
When you are in the mood for a sweet love story about two people who want a healthy relationship, always look up Lila Felix and check her books out first!
