Lex Ryan is the sexy Irish lead guitarist for the hottest country band in the States. He’s known as a serial dater, a commitment-phobe, a player who prefers one-night stands. His wild heart has zero plans of settling down—not even with the band’s makeup artist, Sarah Bowen. He’s vowed to keep his heart from falling for her. Until the band travels to Ireland where his past suddenly crashes into his present.
They say wild hearts can’t be tamed. They never said they can’t be broken.
The Makeup Artist is the second book in the Coffee Book Series. It’s a standalone novel, but the author suggests reading Coffee Girl first because of returning characters.

That is how he ends up here in the US and why he is so closed off in many ways. When he lands in Nashville, he meets the guys and as they say, the rest is history. They were getting ready to go on tour to his motherland, Ireland, and he was late for the plane and when he arrives, he is drunker than two skunks. Everyone knew something was bothering him after Tate and Kiki’s wedding but no one knew what.
Even at his worst, there will still always one woman who will want him no matter what, Sarah. For two years Sarah and Lex, not knowing it, has a crush on the other, yet knowing they were both coming from broken dating lives never wanted to be the one to make the move.
Now being thrown together for this ten-day tour in Lex’s homeland boy will life be exciting. I have to say this second book for me by far outdid the first book. The author allowed the humor and yet the pain and anguish of the characters to shine through. I truly could not put this down until 6:15 a.m. from seven the night before, so that I could finish it.
The ending was perfect and to be able to see the growth and transformation of both characters was so much fun. I loved Maggie and TJ in this book and how his life was lived large and how he was just the perfect friend and how he made the bluest day shine. He was my friend in high school. Kiki was out there in this book compared to the first book but hey if I had chicks after my man…Shampoo it is.
