Beautiful Mess by Kasey Lane

Author: Kasey Lane

Date of publication: March 2017

Hell's bells.
Jackson Paige was, in fact, Jax Pain, the drummer of Manix Curse. 
That thing in Jami's chest tightened, making it hard to breathe.

When attorney Jami Dillon strides into the conference room to meet her new client, she's stopped in her tracks by an all-too familiar figure. Jackson Paige. He's her tall, tattooed, and sexy as hell hook up from law school-who also broke her heart.

Jackson Paige, aka Jax Pain, has worked hard to put that unfor-frickin-gettable fling behind him and the nasty secret that made him leave her. Truth is, life as the playboy drummer of Portland's hottest metal band hasn't helped him to forget the fiery, sexy woman who stole his heart. Lucky for him, Jami was just hired as his band's new attorney. But when he sees the look on her face when she realizes who her new client is, Jax wonders if maybe being this close to her again isn't such a great idea. The explosive chemistry is there, but so are the dark secrets...

Beautiful Mess is the second book in the Rock 'n Ink series by Kasey Lane.  I have to say that I definitely enjoyed this one much more than the first book.  Jackson is the drummer for Manix Curse. Jami is Mason's sister and has spent the last few years trying to keep her life very ordered.  It has already spun out of control once and she won't let it happen again.  That is until Jackson comes back into her life.

Like I said, I really enjoyed this one.  There is a bunch of angst, but it made the HEA that much more worth it.  Jami is such a mess. Her parents really did a number on her self-esteem and confidence.  Jackson is the perfect fit for her as he really sees who she is and how to help her find that out.  Despite his mistake in the past, I was really rooting for them to make amends and take their second chance.  

The other thing that I am liking about this series is the characters.  I love how they have created their own little family and are willing to rally around each other when the situations calls for it.  I am looking forward to seeing whose story is next.  Maybe Bowen's?
