Shay Mahone defines the word ‘independent’. While avoiding emotional entanglements, she focuses on her goal of opening her own yoga studio with her best friend, Charlie.
Brodie Davidson is everything Shay doesn’t want: a famous, arrogant drummer who’s never photographed with the same woman twice. He’s temptation and destruction in one sexy, devastating combination.
Though she vows to keep her distance, Shay finds it impossible to ignore the sensual fire between them. Brodie has never wanted a relationship—until he meets Shay. They both must strip away each other’s veneer in order to reveal the person they were meant to find.
Breaking all of their rules gives Brodie and Shay a freedom they’ve never felt. Just when they discover who they really are, the realities of living a public life intrude. Trials and tribulations are nothing new to either of them, but is their relationship strong enough to overcome all that threatens to tear them apart?
I LOVE a good sexy rocker romance, and this one was no exception. However, I did feel it fell just a bit flat for me, but overall it was enjoyable and entertaining.
Shay has serious issues when it comes to trusting anyone and especially has an issue with anyone with money. The one time she was in love she was used, and the one person she should have been able to rely on the most in her life, chose a life of money over her. She just wants to focus on her new business, and spend time with her best friend and roommate. working multiple jobs and starting a business keeps her distracted from problems.
Brodie is the sexy drummer from a famous band. Shay runs into him at a charity event that she is working at. She is immediately irritated by his choice of women and the fact he is rich and famous. Brodie is immediately interested in Shay and her lack of obvious interest in him. He convinces her to go out and so the story of Shay and Brodie begins.
Brodie has a reputation of being a manwhore. However, Shay makes him want more. Brodie easily slips into the boyfriends role with Shay and proves he is more than what she has been assuming all along. I LOVED seeing a soft, sweet, caring, loving drummer and not just the bad boy persona. However, it was implied that he was a bad boy so I would have liked to see more of that. There was mainly this amazing sweet guy and no hint of bad boy cocky drummer. I also would have liked to see more interaction with the band. I get why they aren't in it, but it was hard to see him as a drummer of a famous band when it didn't seem like the book went there a whole lot. With that said I rate this book 4 stars. Brodie is excellent book boyfriend material, and their story did touch my heart. I just would have liked a little more of the band aspect of the book.
