Review: Okay I don’t know about ya’ll but I’m a sucker for the whole bad ass rockstar boyfriend thing. Seriously I love it. I love to see a man involved in the rockstar lifestyle fall for a woman who changes his whole crazy word upside down… and accidentally make it up side right?? If you catch my drift.

Dex is a part and the lead singer of Kinky Shine. He meets Harley on a bad day because he has to do an interview with her for her blog… being a rockstar and all of course he hates that stuff. However, it turns out that Harley is more than just some small time blogger. Not only does she have a degree in communications, a blog with 500 thousand+ followers her father also happens to be the manager of Kinky Shine.

“Tell me something,” he said slowly, his eyes taking in every inch of my face thoroughly before he eyed my conservative looking top and went back to my eyes mostly hidden by my ugly-ass fake glasses. “Who’re you fucking?”

I blinked. “Huh?”

He smirked at me, the left side of his mouth curving upward, carving in his cheek a very sexy dimple.

Yes ladies and gents you read that excerpt correctly. That is literally Dex’s first encounter with Harley. Of course once he realizes who her father is and realizes that she’s not a groupie who made her way to the top by opening her legs he feels like a complete ass. Harley can’t seem to forget the grumpy, douchebag, and totally sexy rockstar and Dex can’t seem to forget the only woman who has made his insides stir in a long time.

This story had it’s parts where I thought it was a tad cheesy maybe even rushed..but I’ll tell you what… I liked it. Dex was sexy, mysterious and dangerous but he loved Harley more than anything. Harley was an innocent compared to her rockstar man but that didn’t stop her from diving head first in to their relationship. A relationship that was filled with doubt, trust issues and complications from Dex’s famous lifestyle.

How can a man and a woman from two separate worlds last the battle field of love while also dealing with a band that’s falling apart, a grungy lead singer who has more trust issues than he can count and a young girl who can’t seem to care even when her heart is on the line? Pick up this book and find out.

I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars due to some parts that I found weren’t 100% believable. This may be different for everyone.

This is book #1 in her Kinky Shine series.
