This is the third book by Ashley that I have read and again I wasn’t disappointed in it. I really enjoyed this book. I will say that I was intrigued with this book when I read the synopsis. I am sucker for a Rocker love story. I know what you are thinking….rock star love story means lots of women, drugs, drinking and partying. Well this book was different. I love that she created a character like Luke who wasn’t all about the extras that come with a life in the limelight. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because I have come to realize I am a hopeless romantic. I know some people will be put off by the fact that this book is a insta-love situation, but I guess that’s what make me a hopeless romantic because I didn’t have a problem with it. I was glad to see that the author didn’t rush the physical part of Luke and Becca’s relationship. She actually had them take it slow so they could gain the trust and bond that a couple needs to have before going into a physical relationship. My only complaint and why it wasn’t a 5 star read for me was because of the length of the book. I wish it would’ve been longer. I know there is another book coming for Luke and Becca so I guess that makes things easier for me to deal with. I guess in a way I thought that the author could’ve expanded on some things that I thought were glossed over, just given us a little more detail. But again that didn’t deter me from really loving this story.
I LOVED Luke’s character. Not only was he a swoony rock star but he was down to earth as well and really just loved being in the music industry for the music. He didn’t need all the extra benefits to make him happy. He is though, like some other heroes out there, in that, he has some major trust issues. Being in the business he has been in he has had many people lie, steal and cheat to get what they want. So to say he is a little hesitant when it comes to Becca, it makes sense. I also liked that he is a family man, even though his family isn’t a huge part of this story, you could still feel the connection between his parents and his sister. As for Becca….I liked her character because in her own way she was a very strong girl who knew what she wanted out of life and was not going to let anything or anyone stop her from getting it. I did find her a little naive when certain things happen with another character. I wanted to slap her and tell her to wake up, but I guess then we wouldn’t have had the drama in this book. Although I’m not sure if she was all that naive or more just too trusting. She always wanted to see the good in people even when they didn’t deserve it. I also liked this story because it showed that even though Becca and Luke come from two completely different worlds, opposites do still attract and can build a life together.
As for secondary characters, I loved Jen ( and not because I have the same name 😉 ) I just loved her spunk and attitude. She was a great friend to Becca. She offered up advice when Becca needed it and didn’t judge her for what she didn’t have. I loved her loyalty to Becca.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a swoony rock star who falls for the sweet and trusting good girl. This book made me laugh in more then one place because of the great banter between characters, but it also had me blushing, swooning, getting pissed and falling in love with Becca and Luke. This book had a little bit of everything. Yes there is some drama towards the end of the book but it is corrected pretty quickly. This book has a Happy For Now ending, but with a To Be Continued ending as well. I don’t feel that this book is one that you need to wait for the next book to come out before you read it. It ends in a good place, you just know there is more to come.
