What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?

Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.

Until Libby Myles walks into his life.

Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it's the rock star that's the issue.

Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he's out of costume he's different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.

But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there's more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …

My Review

I'm a succor for a good romance once in a while. The idea of having a rock star with some anxiety issues and who is shy when he's not in costume and on stage sounded interesting. The story definitely pulled me in and then I got caught up in getting to know the characters. The scenes when they first meet and what follows was fabulous! It wasn't a great first impression. The second time they meet goes a little bit better.

It just so happens, though, that they end up running into each other quite a bit and then helping each other out. Romance between Adrian and Libby is definitely not allowed. Regardless of their intentions, their attraction slowly builds as they become friends and then possibly something more.

I really liked these two main characters! I also loved little Kate, Adrian's niece. I liked seeing their characters mature as the story progressed, especially Adrian. He's a really good guy regardless of what anyone says. Then there's Libby who wants to reach her dreams, but is really struggling. She is exactly what Adrian and Kate needs. The dialogue was great and I enjoyed how much each character brought to the story.

I really got into the story. It was just a great chick-lit, but with some serious depth. This is not a completely fun and light read. Adrian has some issues in his past and he has some tough stuff he has to deal with. Now if it had just excluded the mild language and the other sexual content, this would have been a perfect read. It is well written with fully-fledged characters, and a happily-ever-after ending. I would recommend this to those who enjoy Adult Romance.

Content: This was so close to being a clean Adult Romance. There are just two places where it gets too descriptive for me. Highlight to see: He puts his hands up her shirt and it's pretty descriptive as to what he touches. There are also two closed-door scenes and some consistent mild language.

About the Author

Claire Boston was a voracious reader as a child, devouring anything by Enid Blyton as well as series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. Then one school holidays when she’d run out of books to read her mother handed her ‘Hot Ice’ by Nora Roberts and Claire instantly fell in love with romance novels.

The love of reading soon turned to a love of writing and she struggled to keep within the 1500 word limit set by her teachers for her creative writing assignments. When she finally decided to become serious about her stories she joined Romance Writers of Australia, found her wonderful critique group and hasn’t looked back.

When Claire’s not reading or writing she can be found in the garden attempting to grow vegetables, or racing around a vintage motocross track. If she can convince anyone to play with her, she also enjoys cards and board games.

Claire lives in Western Australia, just south of Perth with her husband, who loves even her most annoying quirks, and her two grubby, but adorable Australian bulldogs.

  13. Woah that's a fierce list! So many beauties! You're actually giving me the idea that I too can complete 15 books for ARC April....hmm we shall see! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lol! Arrowsmith isn't necessarily my generation, but I still love quite a few of their songs. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. It was different. She did really, really good with all her characters! I'm definitely looking forward to reading what she publishes next.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maybe Chad and Avril together? They are married, so two for one.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I hope you enjoy it when you do get to read it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It is a lot! LOL! What was I thinking?? Oh, yeah...I have a million books to read. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. They are great challenges!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I feel like I'm doing alright. I have plenty of time to meet them all.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's just perfect timing for me since I'll be done with a lot of books on the 14th and will be able to get some other reading done. I want to keep my pace up, which has been about a book a day. I haven't been online as much and have been only reading at night to do that and it is a lot, but I have a lot of books to read too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I LOVE Deeanne Gist!!! Love her! I've had Fair Play for a while, but I've had to read some other books before I could get to it, so I'm really looking forward to reading it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, do! Then I can cheer you on. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks for hosting! Even if I just get the first 12 done that will be good, but I'm hoping to get some of the others read too. It's going to be a great reading month!

    ReplyDelete
  25. A book a day! Wow. I'm a slow reader. The only times I've finished a book in one day is if I spend the whole day (and night) reading.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's a lot of books! I've got to ask though, what are the Whitneys?

    ReplyDelete
  27. The Whitneys are books awards for LDS authors - not necessarily religious books. I have the opportunity of judging this year. I have quite a few of them added to this bookshelf on Goodreads if you want to see which books have been nominated.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cool! Looking at that shelf now.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I didn't realize I didn't have all the books added, so I just did that. It's a complete list now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. My favorite rock song: Brand New Start - Alter Bridge, highly recommended.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Everytime you post more books my list of TBR gets so much longer!! But I guess that's a good thing, you always do seem to find great books.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is a wicked amount of challenges. I wish the best of luck to you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Lol! My TBR list is out of control. I need like three lives to read all the books I want to read. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks! So far I'm doing okay with them and they are all great challenges.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Lucky you! Super excited for several of these books - Deep Blue, The Falconer, Somebody Like You, Meant to Be Mine, Blonde Ops. Great collection, Tressa. I've got one from Revell to read called A Woman of Fortune, it sounds good so I'm hopeful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would have though that my excitement from receiving an ARC from NetGalley or Edelweiss would have rubbed off by now, but it hasn't. I rather love books! :) I actually have way too many to read, but I'm doing pretty good right now in denting my tbr pile.


    That one is on my tbr too and looks and sounds really good. I hope you love it so that I have a good reason to get a copy! ;)

    I'd have to say that I would like to meet Billy Joel. Love his song "The Legend of Billy the Kid"

    ReplyDelete
  38. He definitely is a classic. Caught him a couple weeks back on The Tonight Show. It was great!
