Synopsis

He can seduce with a single glance.

Peering down at a sea of fans, rock star, Mitchell Davies can’t deny the innocent beauty of a woman in the front row. He’ll stop at nothing to get to know her. When a public altercation leaves her weak and defenseless, he takes the opportunity to be her savior.

She’s been sheltered from the world.

Alana Shelton wants to spread her wings and experience life away from her restrictive upbringing. But she isn’t prepared for a gorgeous stranger to sweep her off her feet while at her most vulnerable.

Attraction will bring them together, but their pasts will try to tear them apart.

He wants to teach her how to trust, but she’ll show him how to love. In a glamorous world of rock-and-roll, only time will tell if they’re up for the challenge.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***

 If you’re looking for a rock star romance without the typical “sex, drugs and rock n roll” theme, then this book is for your. There is some sex and some rock n’ roll but it’s done in a very tasteful way that lets you see that rock stars are real people too with their own insecurities and problems to overcome. The characters had me hooked. I loved how much Alana grew throughout the book. She started out as a very shy, naive girl and by the end of the book, she was standing up for what she wanted and following her own path instead of the one her mother wanted her to follow. Mitch is your typical hot rock god but he has his own insecurities to deal with. He’s afraid of a committed relationship; not because he wouldn’t be faithful, but because he’s seen what the rock star life has done to his friends. Mitch doesn’t want to risk his heart only to have it crushed when the touring and concerts put a strain on a relationship. But as the two of them spend time together (and you’ll totally enjoy how that happens), each of them realizes that they want a relationship. Alana tries to fight for it but Mitch just pushes her away. Will they end up together? Or will they allow insecurities to keep them apart?

I enjoyed the story for the most part. There is one part where I feel nothing was explained or understood. It would be nice to understand the sudden appearance of Alana’s grandparents and father considering there was never any previous mention of them. I feel like nothing was gained from having them in the story at all. If the author had left that part out of the book, the story still in my opinion would have been just as good. I would still recommend you check this book out and see what happens with Alana and Mitch.
