Ooh, looky how that man handles his guitar! And *real* tattoos, FTW!! (At least they look real. Better than many of the fake black tribal ones we tend to see on romance novels.)
*wipes off drool* Okay, down to the review. I’ve really liked this series — it’s sweet and funny, and there’s plenty of lovely smexy scenes. That being said, I didn’t enjoy this story nearly as much as the others. Ben, the hero, had such potential. A big, sexy bearded rock star? Oh, yes, please! Except…we didn’t really get to know Ben. He seemed rather peripheral, a secondary character in his own story. He just didn’t pop off the page like, for example, Mal (who I loved, even when I wanted to smack him upside the head for his childish behavior).
And, sadly, I didn’t really like the heroine so much. Lizzy finds herself preggers, after a lovely romp with Ben in Vegas, despite Lizzie’s protective older sister, Anne (Mal’s wife), warning Liz away from Ben and Mal (Lizzy’s brother-in-law) warning Ben off Lizzie. So, yeah. Pregnant. Surprise! So, this what does this college girl do? Why, she quits school and follows the band around on tour. Really, Lizzie? Really? *headdesk*
Despite the fact that this review sounds like I hated the story, I didn’t. I enjoyed it but was just disappointed because I enjoyed the others so much more. Oh, well. Still a good read — one I blew through in one sitting because, even though I wanted more Ben and less lackluster Liz, I enjoy Kylie Scott’s writing. She keeps me entertained.
