Jax Sterling is a sex addict with the heart of a golden retriever puppy.
As the lead singer for the Red Letters, it’s easy to hide his loneliness behind his bad boy lifestyle…until he lands on tour with a hard rock goddess who makes him want the relationship he can never have.
Onstage, Ava’s all chains, whips and guitar licks, but the backstage confessions they share are darker than their leather.
She wants Jax, but he wants better for her than him.
But then, bad news drops that threatens the life of one of his bandmates, and the loyalty of the other. Terrified by how little he has left if he loses his best friends, Jax takes the plunge to let someone else into his life.
Until Ava finds out his ugliest sin, and it’s nothing she can forgive.
**This book contains spoilers to earlier books in the series, but can be read and understood as a standalone. No cheating, no cliffhanger, HEA guaranteed.**
This is an ugly cry. The raw and deep emotions broke and put me back together again.
Ok, grab some tissues and welcome to the mega tour!
When we first met AVA, she’s this super badass rock and roll princess. She’s strong, she’s in charge and she’s the boss.
When we last see Jax, he’s in his worst possible place. Off tour and still using drugs, his best friend getting married...
When we meet them again, we see all these new sides. We meet the AVA behind the stage: no make up, no costume, but still badass. Jax is in recovery, out of rehab and trying to prove to his band that he can do this.
Jax is such a puppy! He cares so much for his friends, even though he sometimes feel like the third wheel. He isn’t a bad guy, he just needs to work on his problems and this tour is very important to all of them. Inalways had a soft spot for him, but reading how he felt out of place most of the time in his own band, crushed me.
I really enjoyed that we get to see the band’s dynamic a bit more in this, and is part of Jax personallity to have them so involved in this story. We get to see how close the three of them really are, and how much they care and need each other.
AVA and Jax can complement each other very well, he can really tell most of the things AVA needs and while she is a bit noisy in Jax’s life she does want to hell him and teaches him a lot along the way too. They bond over their fears and their friendship is so sweet and pure!
Is hard to talk about the growth they both had without giving away the plot, but the emotions I had with this broke me. I had to stop and take a few days because I was really wondering how the author was going to fix them and I hate sad endings.
She touches delicates subjects, and does so in a raw way, respectful of the issues and making you care so much for these characters that we came to love.
Insatiable is about learning to love yourself and let others love you with your flaws and all. While Jax is the one who makes more of the discovery, I think we see all the characters learn and grow a little.
Michelle gives us a powerful journey, raw emotions and high intensity in this rock and roll romance.

“Jax, wait!” She grabs my arm.
“Still not ready to sleep?”
Please God, let her ask me to hold her. That happens in Jera’s romance novels all the time. And okay, the heroes never pop inappropriate wood, but that’s just because they’re a bunch of pussies.
Ava nods, and I can’t quite read the look in her eye. Her hand feels soft on my arm and when it drops away, my skin tingles. “If you want to trade in truth or dare for a bedtime story next time, I rock at Dr. Seuss. Jera’s daughter can’t get enough of rhyming.” I half-smile. “Songwriter’s kid, you know.”
“Sorry. You should go catch a nap before the plane lands. I need a new damn boyfriend is all.” Ava sighs. “Hate sleeping alone.”
My heart jolts and I briefly debate the wisdom of jumping up and down, waving my arm in the air. Decide against it on the basis of possible un-coolness points. “You could try your bodyguard. Judging by the look he gave me when I was on my way in here, he’s dying to play Big Spoon.”
Ava laughs. “Yeah, not even a little bit. Plus, his wife is in my knitting group back home.”
“AVA knitting? From the girl who started the skull-with-pink-bow trend, that’s some serious blackmail, so now we’re even.” She still looks glum, so I skim my knuckles down her arm. “Come on, you’re not really alone. You’re on a tiny plane with the world’s most prescient flight attendant, a vampire bat, and a makeup artist whom I suspect of reading the dictionary. For pleasure.”
She laughs, squirming around until she’s straight on the bed again and squinting up at me as a tiny curl falls into her eyes. “You’re crazy weird, you realize that, right?”
“They’re your hand-picked staff, not mine.” I head for the door and pause with my hand on the knob. “I’ll totally stay and cuddle with you, you know. As long as you have sex with me three, maybe four times first.”
“Four?” She pushes her hair out of her face. “Oh, is that all?”
I wink. “‘If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.’”
“Oh my God, did you just sex-quote Dr. Seuss at me?” She explodes into my favorite laugh, the gasping snorty one.
I close the door, grinning. Which sucks, because I look like a fool when I realize her bodyguard is still awake, swiveled so he can watch me come out of her airplane’s bedroom.
And he still hasn’t blinked.
