But first, we have to find a way to steer us in the right direction.

    The Right Direction by Kathy Coopmans is an emotional and sexy 2nd chance romance. From the very first page I knew this book was special and had the power to break my heart into many pieces –and guess what, it surely did. There were so many emotions and feelings that kept me hooked on this story from beginning to end. Joslyn and Roman- we got a hint of their story in Once Upon A Rock Star Anthology where we got a small snippet of their story there.

From the very first page I knew this book was special and had the power to break my heart into many pieces –and guess what, it surely did. There were so many emotions and feelings that kept me hooked on this story from beginning to end. Joslyn and Roman- we got a hint of their story in Once Upon A Rock Star Anthology where we got a small snippet of their story there. Now we get the full story and what a story it is. These two had a troubled childhood that connected them , a bond that they thought would never be broken but tragedy happened and their bond severed. Roman went on to live his rockstar dream while Joslyn was left behind. Roman never forgot his first love, his true love but he moved on doing his best to stave off the memories of his past, of his pain. He hoped one day he would get to see his true love again. Kind of like that saying “ If you love someone/something, set it free and if they love you, they will return”. Roman always held out he would see Joslyn again. The past between them and how they ended up separated caused tears and tears. I cried so much. I hated that neither of them didn’t try harder but WOW I loved it when Joslyn came back to him in present time. Roman finds himself in jail and in the need of an attorney. His publicist finds him the perfect lawyer...Joslyn. Joslyn has always followed Roman’s rockstar career and kept track of him, even thru his marriage and divorce, and that was a pretty painful time for her but she did it. Now that Roman has her in his life again, he is pulling out all stops to keep her in his life again and will stop at nothing to show Joslyn that they are moving in the Right Direction finally and are headed toward the right place…toward each other. Thing is, nothing ever is smooth and there are things in their way- like ex-wives causing hate and discontent against Roman and Joslyn, stalkers causing trouble for Joslyn and new found family which is something that hits Joslyn for she didn’t know she had any family and was unaware. Will these two finally be able to live a happy and love filled life or is someone(s) bound to ruin this 2nd chance at love ? This was an amazing story, filled with intrigue, suspense, passion, angst, action, big emotions, drama, villians and LOVE. I couldn’t help but fall head over hills for this read. Kathy Coopmans did an outstanding job with this book and I cant wait to read more stories in this world. My Rating: 4.9 stars ***** “I received an advanced copy of this book from the author at no cost to me."

    I must be in a major book funk because I am just not feeling it. Although this author does a spectacular job on the filthy talking Roman Nixon and the sexy times, I didn't really care for much else. I felt no connection or emotions from the characters. It was just an okay story for me. I couldn't really get into it. I struggled to stay focused on the story and read it through to the end. The dynamic of the relationship between Roman and Joslyn just felt so unnatural. All the drama just seemed so I must be in a major book funk because I am just not feeling it.

I don't know, this is my first time reading a book from this author and the blurb sounded great. Unfortunately, this one just wasn't one for me. ** ARC received in exchange for an honest review **

Will these two finally be able to live the life they dreamed of or will life try and steer them in the wrong direction again?I'm so excited to see what else Kathy will give us in this new and amazing series.

I knew that it was a Rockstar/Second Chance romance but that was the extent of it. I saw Kathy was coming out with a new series and I pounced. Blurb schmlurb! The whole blind read thing sometimes comes to bite me in the rear and the story turns out to be a subgenre that I don't like or read that often. So not the case with The Right Direction. Nope, I loved the drama, the feels, the sexy, and everything else. I could not put my kindle down. Great job Kathy! I can't wait to get read the next book in this series.

    Expected MoreVery disappointed. The premise and the start of this book was very promising. About one third in, it became very repetitive, in both characters inner dialog about each other and the hot sex scenes. Wish there was more to the actual story. I also expected better editing and a less choppy reading experience for a book by a USA Today best selling Author. Maybe the next book about Dean will fare better.

    This was not your average rockstar romance or second chance romance. There are many twist and turns. Their feelings and yours are all over the place. I felt like Roman was just a down to earth guy, not a hot shot rockstar. He was kind, compassionate and all alpha. Josilyn was amazing with her take no crap attitude. You can feel her emotions just below the surface, but her façade was all strong and sure. You will have many surprises, but it is a great story with all the feels.

It didn't matter if they belong to the same series because they were different at their on way. Kathy Coopmans is a genius. Her books speak to me in a way that I can't possibly describe how I felt. Her writing is simple yet super detailed, full of meaning, feelings and super hot stuff. Let me just say the you need to buckel up and get ready for the ride. The Right Direction is her latest release and tells the stories of Roman and Joslyn.These two had a past marked by negligence and sadness but they felt complete when they were together. The day Roman won a singing contest both their life's changed. It changed for him because he needed to move away and it changed for her because she lost him. She refused to go with him so while he was becoming famous being a rock God she studied hard and become a lawyer. 11 years old they found each other but in some totally different circumstances because Roman needed a lawyer and Joslyn happens to be one... Things happened for these two that made them be the way they are, unhappy, suspicious and afraid of getting hurt again. Can 11 years of distance be forgotten? Can the old flame light up again? Or is it dead forever? OMG I knew what I was getting myself into but this just blew all my expectations. It is freaking awesome to fall in love with a story the way I did. I can't find the right words... The plot is magnificent, very well written, super engaging. The interation between the characters is beautiful, raw, intense and unforgettable. The way the story progressed left me anxious, nervous, mad, happy, sad and so freaking hot. The suspense is very present and that sole factor made nervous as hell. Jeez.. The unknown... I knew that a book written by this amazing author would be a success but it was so much more. Kathy you are amazing and everyone should know that. Your books make us dream and feel things in a very intense way.Can't wait for your next book from this series. Spring come quickly please...

    This book has a lot of darkness, violence and sex, apart from a very strong love story. This is a second chance love story, since the couple were foster children from very young up to senior year of high school. Then Roman left to pursue his dreams of being a rockstar, and Joslyn stayed to pursue her dreams of studying at the University of Michigan. Even though they were supposed to stay in contact and get together again after she finished University, a tragedy happened that split them apart and This book has a lot of darkness, violence and sex, apart from a very strong love story. This is a second chance love story, since the couple were foster children from very young up to senior year of high school. Then Roman left to pursue his dreams of being a rockstar, and Joslyn stayed to pursue her dreams of studying at the University of Michigan. Even though they were supposed to stay in contact and get together again after she finished University, a tragedy happened that split them apart and it’s not until eleven years later that they meet again.Roman was thrown in prison for attacking a paparazzo. He’s just in the throes of divorcing his wife who is a supreme bitch when the slimy jerk asked him a question about Joslyn. He never shares information about Joslyn. Never ever. So when the paparazzo mentions Joslyn, he knows his ex-wife must have found the information about the only woman he’s ever loved and fed it to the press. He went postal and got thrown in prison. Since he fired his lawyer when he realized the lawyer never submitted the prenup that allowed his ex to wipe him out, he’s sitting there, stubbornly refusing the court-appointed lawyer. And guess who arrived to help him out? Joslyn, who is now a flaming lawyer in the city of Los Angeles.There are several conflicts in this story. Roman has a hate relation with Hollywood. He hates all it represents, the relentless pursuit of the press, the many made-up stories, the make believe world of appearances, and the viciousness of the fans when they find their prey. When he finds Joslyn, and knows the press if going to have a field day with her, he went into full blast protective mode, bodyguard, brought her to his home, didn’t want to let her leave. He has a hate relation with his ex-wife Gwen. After he lost contact with Joslyn, he went into a frenzy of women and booze, but always kept away from the press. Then at a photo shoot, he met the photographer’s assistant. He married the woman because she appeared so sweet and next-door girl nice, but she changed into a barracuda who was never satisfied, no matter what Roman gave her. She cheated and he served her divorce papers and she started up a tweet storm against Roman and Joslyn. In the middle of all this storm, the paparazzi are pursuing them everywhere, Joslyn is stubbornly insisting on continuing to work, and Roman is insistent on them having some time apart and alone to re-establish their second chance. There’s an element of danger because there seems to be someone trying to hurt Joslyn, too. The feeling you get is that there is a maelstrom of violent feelings, of lust and love from Roman to Joslyn, and of hate and revenge from Roman to Gwen. His emotions run all over the place, and they are all expressed with a lot of passion and violence.There was one element of joy and positiveness, related to Joslyn and her past, but I don’t want to spoil the happy moment for the readers. Just know that it’s there and it’s a tear-jerker moment.I felt a lot of darkness in this book. I felt that the author wrote in circles, going back and forth in present and past stories, and it was a little confusing. Also, she spent a lot of time in her characters’ heads, expressing their emotions in a very passionate manner, violent when it was Roman’s thoughts. I read a lot of repetition about their issues and feelings and resolutions. Also, Roman spent most of the book with an erection, and he was thinking about sex, talking about sex, planning sex, Skyping sex and sexting. And the sex scenes were miles long. I didn’t get the feeling that the characters grew or dealt with issues, more like rollercoaster over them. The overriding story of this book was the lasting love between Roman and Joslyn, how sad and guilty they felt about their separation years ago, yearning about how life could have been if they had dealt with issues head on at that time, and the resolution that their someday was here to stay and they would defend their love no matter what.

    Kathy Coopmans has done it again!I have to say that The Right Direction is probably my most favorite book by Kathy Coopmans and I'm so excited that it's part of a series. Though I've not read all of her other works, out of the ones I have read, I feel she has grown so much as an author, especially with character development.There was something about Joslyn and Roman's story that completely sucked in from the very beginning. I could feel the connection between the two of them and knew I was in fo Kathy Coopmans has done it again!I have to say that The Right Direction is probably my most favorite book by Kathy Coopmans and I'm so excited that it's part of a series.

The story was so much more than just your typical rocker romance. I have to say that I was really sad to see it end. It was just THAT good!

    The Right Direction is the first book in the Sweet Sin series by Kathy Coopmans. This is a second chance romance with a few twist mixed in. Roman and Joslyn were childhood soulmates; they have spent years apart until fate stepped in and their world’s collided, I wouldn’t call Roman’s ex-wife fate but she is something. I loved these two characters. Joslyn is a tough, strong sassy attorney and Roman Nixon is a dirty talking sexy musician.

    This is my first book by Coopmans and it won’t be my last! This book was full of mystery, angst, and the power of love. I loved how close of a unit Roman and his band are but more importantly I love the undying love between Joslyn and Roman! No hurt or anger for what life had thrown at them just determination to get their someday.

    When Roman, frontman for the rock band Trained In Black, finds himself in legal trouble he knows there is only one person to call to help him out—his ex-girlfriend, and current defense attorney, Joslyn. The two haven’t seen each other in eleven years, but once Joslyn’s initial shock and anger recedes, it becomes obvious the two still have an attraction that is undeniable.

The two haven’t seen each other in eleven years, but once Joslyn’s initial shock and anger recedes, it becomes obvious the two still have an attraction that is undeniable. But it seems that there are several forces trying to keep them apart; after finding each other, a decade later, are they willing to fight in order to stay together?I am going to come right out and say it—I didn’t like either Roman or Joslyn. I felt no connection to them whatsoever and for me, there was little genuine chemistry between the two. The pace was glacial and the story was everywhere, with several different sub-plots, some of which are never resolved.I’m starting to think that Coopmans is one of those authors whose writing style just isn’t my thing. Repeatedly characters don’t use pronouns, specifically the word I. For example, “Ended up burning through two bottles of wine...”, instead of “I ended up burning through two bottles of wine...”. At first I thought it was just the way that Roman speaks, but soon all of the characters were speaking the same way, and unfortunately it makes them sound like a bunch of cavemen. The book is riddled with sentence fragments, e.g., “Our eyes lock. Are glued to each other for the longest time.”Again, I think it is probably me and the type of style I am used to. This made it really difficult for me to get through the whole book and I ended up putting it down several times.There are also issues with the plot, namely the situation with Dean and his son. Umm...what happened? This book is a standalone, right? Because I have no clue what is going on with this particular plot point. Why was the whole story arc of her brother included? It added zero to the story. And lastly, it’s a stretch to call this a rock star romance, when there is very little going on with the band?Don’t let my issues with the book deter you. As I said before, I think it is just the author’s writing style that doesn’t click with me. I received an advance copy of this title for review purposes.

He loves what he does but he hates the bad publicity that he gets himself into sometimes. And this is where he now has to contact her. He had to ask a friend to help him find her while he sits in this jail cell after the latest mess he got himself into. It’s been 11 years since they have seen each other and Roman has to warn her fast before she sees the news. Someone leaked a story that is going to hurt her soo bad. It’s going to bring up old memories that she has kept quiet all these years. He has to protect her heart. Even though he hasn’t seen her in all these years she still has a special place in his heart. “Hello, Roman. I’ve been informed you need an attorney.” Say what? Jesus, that sound. It has always been the sexiest, sultriest voice I’ve heard in my life. It’s her, he found her. Now he has to tell her what has been leaked and pray that she doesn’t hate him after the story has been released. But seeing her now is bringing back all those feelings from long ago. He hopes he can rekindle those old feelings with her and not make her run for the hills.I gave this book 5 iScream Cones. I fell in love with Roman Nixon, troubled past and all!! This was such a great read. I think I say this every time I read a Coopmans book, I say..ohh this is my fav..This one certainly won my heart over as well!!
