This review is going to be a mix of good and bad. First, lets start with the good. I really enjoyed the characters. The innocent girl, desperate to make it in a situation thats a make it or break it kind of deal who meets the quintessential bad boy who is also a complete man whore. When Emily and Jonathan first meet, sparks fly and not in a good way. They clashed from the beginning as Emily stood up to him and didn’t take any of his mouthy crap, no matter how hot he was. She was strong willed and didn’t let the all male situation intimidate her into a shrinking violet. I loved this about her. I'm a huge fan of strong female leads and she definitely was. Jonathan was cool, collected and a smart ass but when he started to fall, it was hard and fast. Something about Emily sucked him right in and in his conflicted way, tried to get to actually know her.. but of course he still wanted her in his bed.
The story... I really enjoyed the story. Who doesn’t love a hard rocker who’s taken by the innocent girl with a will of iron? Its a traditional story wrapped in unique situations and a wonderful cast. And steamy?? Yes please! Love me some steam and this had plenty to go around!
BUT here’s the rub! This book would have warranted a higher rating if their had been a better editing job. Sentence structure is very important for a reader. We get emotions, timing, personality and scene points from proper punctuation. Without it, a reader is left wondering how to play the scene in their minds. This book had a LOT of errors in punctuation, grammar and some of the dialogue needed culling through and reformatting. Some of the lines came off in a different way then I know they were intended, and it was all due to grammar.
The Wrap Up:
I love hot rock stars stories who fall for the unsuspecting girl. And this book was just that kind of read. I loved the story. I loved the characters. But a knowledgeable editor can do wonders for a manuscript and I’d love to re-read this one after its been gone over carefully and fixed. I think I’d definitely give it higher marks.
