About Gibson’s Legacy
Gibson Barclay has been famous for almost seven years and he's only twenty four.
Seldom does anyone pick up a magazine, newspaper or watch a television entertainment show, without seeing his image or reading about his promiscuous antics. He had no need to court publicity with his magnetic charm and charismatic ways; when he chooses to cooperate that is. Shrugging off the advice of publicists and image consultants, Gibson makes no excuses for who he is, and with no ties, he answers to no one about how he chooses to live his life.
From teenage musician to twenties mega rock star, Gibson has seen and done it all. Women fantasize about him and men envy his rock scene, womanizing lifestyle. Only one person ever made Gibson feel uncomfortable about the way he lived his life. No one ever said no to him that he can remember, although there was two minute events that he has never been able to shake from his mind. Both of those events involved the way Chloe Jenner looked at him. It was something and nothing, but for him, the impact haunted him. In the strangest twist of fate, something so wildly obscure occurred, that set his mind ablaze with the memory of that small encounter.
Like all women, Chloe found Gibson striking and had even shared with friends, her own guilty fantasy about him. Fantasy and reality were poles apart and Chloe believed that Gibson Barclay never even knew that she existed.
*Adult Contemporary Romance – Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen.*
Hands invaded my body space and ran up and across my pectorals, my head dropping to see what she was doing. She glided her palms around and under my arms, until they stopped on both scapula bones on my back. Stroking me, she smiled suggestively and continued to trail downwards toward my ass, and by the time I made eye contact with her, she was so close her hot panting breaths were fanning over my face. Groupies had no shame. Then again, I was so fucking wired after the gig, I needed something to bring me down, and an easy fuck meant I didn’t have to be charming or polite to anyone. This girl knew the score and she was begging for it.

Review by White Hot Reads
Gibson's Legacy is the story of two people who met in passing. For Chloe the meeting left an indelible memory for which she will always judge Gibson. Gibson will always remember Chloe as the girl who got away. But years later, after Gibson becomes the lead singer of a famous band and Chloe is attempting to move on from the abuse in her past, one wrong number brings them back together.
Gibson's Legacy deals with some major issues, from partner abuse and healing, learning to trust again, what comes next and how to deal with your past moving forward. Chloe is terrified of her feelings for Gibson, partly due to the abuse she has suffered, and partly because of her past experience with Gibson. But shouldn't each person be given the chance to show the other, that they are not the same as they were five years ago? Gibson fights daily with the facts that everyone sees him as a womanizing playboy. But Gibson is so much more than that, and he feels strongly for Chloe... He just might love her.
White Hot Reads gives Gibson's Legacy a 3 on the HOT scale. Gibson's Legacy is Smokin' Hot!
