Ashlyn Murphy was not living the dream. Twenty-seven years old, college educated, up to her eyeballs in debt and yet she’d been relegated to pouring beers at a local bar. She desperately needed an out and was willing to do anything to get back into the corporate world. Well, almost anything. Dan Evans, Rock Star was NOT one of those things. In fact she despised him. Apparently he didn’t get the memo.
Dan Evans, bass player of international rock band Power Station had it all. He was rich, travelled the world, played to millions of adoring fans and had no shortage of beautiful women willing to share his bed. He didn’t need a moody redheaded knockout with a superiority complex complicating his life. Or did he?
When two people who couldn’t be more opposite cross paths, it’s bound to be explosive; sometimes all you can do is sit back and enjoy the show.
Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I love rock romances like no other, so that means the bar is set pretty high before I even go into a new book and I’m happy to report this ticked all my boxes!
Dan Evans is a confident man. He likes to talk … a lot. It’s mostly highly inappropriate conversation but there’s no stopping the nattering. Originally after his first meeting with Ashlyn, I was thinking ‘oh god – don’t let him have most of this story! So annoying!’ so naturally Ashlyn had my sympathies.
Dan is a beautifully written douche, confident arrogant ego that’s never come across an attitude like Ashlyn’s. He’s certainly met his match and no wonder they get under each other’s skin. Within minutes of starting the book, I was on Ashlyn’s side. She didn’t play the victim, she was doing the best she could given the situation. I love her strength, her sass and that she has morals.
The blossoming romance was written beautifully. It was sweet, sexy and had just the right amount of naughty. The perfect amount of angst, drama, conflict, romance, tender moments and the character growth. With that character growth, Dan just had to meet the right person that unlocked that part of his heart and allowed him to feel he was worthy. This is definitely a step up , he’s not settling. Like I said, ticks all the boxes in my world.
I was killing myself laughing about the purse scene. Hilarious and wonderfully written! But the giggles are sprinkled liberally throughout the story and it certainly packs a punch in the feels.
Every single character that appeared in this book added to the story. Really liked Megs and she had me in stitches. I love her honesty and that she was team Dan the whole way. I’m super excited to read her story in Crash Ride and learn more about Troy Harris. Yes, you must always say his name in full.
