This isn’t who I am…
I’ve never been what you considered the take-home-to-your-mama type. F*ck, I usually don’t even stick around past the next morning. For as long as I can remember, I’ve lived by no one’s rules but my own. On the edge of destruction, my life has been an obscure, drug-induced haze of hard partying, random groupies, and Metal.
Now, there’s Lace.
Ever since I saw her uptight ass, I’ve wanted to pound the prude right out of her. She was just supposed to be a fun lay. Now, she’s turning my world on its ass.
What the f*ck is wrong with me?
Whatever it is, she’s making me want things, different from what I’ve had, different from what I thought I wanted. Thing is…I’m not sure if I’m ok with that.
Find out what happens when Gunnar Haze, rock god, meets Lacey, a music critic with a broken heart and an eye for bad boys. With the type of heat that will melt your panties right off, opposites will attract and collide.
This is a standalone in a series of standalones
You know when you think of rock stars you have some sort of set picture in your head?
The sex, drugs and rock & roll kind of picture.
Well, while we do get a glimpse into that life this novel gives us more. It digs just that little deeper into the real life and what goes on when the lights are out and the show is over.
We are shown the development of Lace and Gunnar as persons and most of all we get to see that real love does in fact, changes us. For better or for worse. ;-)
This is one of these novels that doesn’t exactly have that many plot twists. It’s quick, fairly simple and really only focuses on Lacey and Gunnar as a couple. The good, the bad, the sexy and the ugly!
So if you want a quick, well-structured rock star romance that digs just a little deeper into the real life of the wild and the wicked, this is the one for you.
A point of criticism is that I found the jump from the ‘last’ chapter to the sort of epilogue a bit abrupt, the transition could have been a little bit smoother. I found myself wondering, what on earth?! Maybe that is just my own personal opinion so don’t take that into consideration too much. All the rest is structured perfectly!
One other thing is that I didn’t get some of the expressions but that might have something to do with the fact that I’m not a native English speaker or that this is an ARC copy that probably hasn’t been fully edited.
Let’s close this review with a few parting words from the big man himself:
“I’m one of a fucking kind, baby.” - Gunnar
