Other Books by Charity Ferrell





Description from Publisher:
We’ve all seen the headlines about him.

Knox Rivers is music’s out of control, all over TMZ, and under the impression that he’s God’s gift to the female population bad boy.

He steals hearts with his music and then breaks them with his behavior. He’s also my new boss, and I'm going to be traveling across the country with him on tour.

There’s no way I would’ve taken the job if I weren’t so desperate, but after my dad lost all of his money for not paying taxes, I'm left broke, homeless, and unable to pay my tuition only a year shy of receiving my degree. I have this under control. I’m the daughter of a rock legend who’s used to being around these types of men, but I’m finding myself more drawn to him with every passing mile.

I'm fighting to keep our relationship professional while he's pushing to show me there's more to him than what's plastered all over the tabloids.

Desire starts triumphing my rationality.

I’m throwing all my rules out the window.

I’ll deal with the repercussions when the gas tank runs dry.

My Musings:
This my first Charity Ferrel book and it was a fun read. I really denjoyed the banter between Knox and Libby at the beginning, and then the way they eventually gave into their feelings.

Knox being honest and a straight-shooter from the start was great. So often, the hero is portrayed as a commitphobe and it was refreshing how he was willing to put himself out there. I didn't really care for Libby much though. She was overly dramatic, self-centered and her baggage felt very shallow and contrived. She was fine most of the time, but I wanted to shake her sometimes!

The sexual chemistry between these two was great and had plenty of steamyness, amd this is probably more me than anything else, but this is a book that uses words like "tits" and "pussy" a lot (including "pussy lips"), which I find to be a turn off. In my opinion, there isn't anything romantic OR sexy about "tits."

Things got a little frustrating and dragged a little from 70-85% but picked up and settled on the love story that pulled me in in the first half again soon after. Things did feel more genuine at that point as well, finishing the story up in a satisfying way.

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is unbiased and my 100% own.
