This is a fantastic, well thought out, hot and sexy story.
This is the first book I have read of Anna Paige and I’ll be reading more.
Aubrey was a great lead female, strong but not invulnerable and Kade, with his resting jerk face, is a misrepresented, stand up guy.
On the surface the book has a common plot line of wild rock stars and the professional girl who falls in love with one of them. But it goes beyond the usual books and highlights to us to always question what is really important when it comes to love.
This book does have some very descriptive sex scenes, so really for 18+ readers.
This book gets a 3-star rating as it does have some interesting moments. If not for the ramped-up sex scenes (which screams of a similar hit book out there), it would not have even got that. With a standard template formula for romantic novel of girl/boy angst that is as old as time it has the benefit of being a quick read. Mostly because I could skim read it (only took me approximately five hours). I can see how this would appeal to a younger crowd with its rock star scene and the (total fantasy) of meeting a real-life celebrity, which today’s society has a penchant for. Throw in some dual ‘tragedy’ in the past and you have a standard ‘feel good’ fantasy romance novel story line. With ‘Warden’ at one point ‘thinking’ in lyric form – nice try but it would have made more sense for the boys in the band to come up with a song. At times, I felt that the language used by the two main characters swung wildly, at time using kitsch old school language such as ‘bug up his a**’ and then going into full dirty talk. In one scene, the female lead recalls her father’s wisdom all in one hit, literally all in one paragraph. This seems highly unlikely – must remember that it is fiction I suppose. As explained above, a very predictable story, will pull on all the appropriate societal heartstrings and vanities, not a story of any depth but nice.
