What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?

A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band's publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.

Only problem is, Thea doesn't date clients--or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she's not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.

What she doesn't know is that David is a one-woman man...and he's madly in love with her. David's determined to prove he's worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea's about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.

Mini Review

It’s a short novella about David, the drummer for School Choir and their PR manager and Molly’s sister, Thea. I can say that I liked the little we saw of David and Thea in book 1 and I enjoyed their romance more than Fox and Molly’s. Despite its short length it was a well-rounded story with likable characters.  

David lived to his nickname the Gentleman of Rock and his courting of Thea was both cute and sexy. I especially liked how his persistent he was without coming off as intimidating and obsessive. The memo exchange served as a fun game of seduction and was a pleasant surprise.

David was an all-around good guy – with his bandmates, with his family, with Thea. He was even a bit shy, avoiding the spotlight and that made him even more attractive than your typical bad boy rocker.  

Thea had legitimate reasons to be hesitant to start a relationship with David – he is her client and a famous musician. Her resistance felt genuine and not contrived, yet it seemed too much towards the end. I loved the chemistry, their sexy times were really hot.

There was a slow natural progression of their relationship and it is presented at the background of their family and professional lives.

Intense, passionate,. She had some issues and there was some drama at the end related to David but they all served to add complexity their characters and to present their relationship as it grows and ultimates becomes the love of their lives for both of them.

A sweet, sexy story which I can recommend to fans of rockstar romances,. We see more of Molly and Fox, as well as bits and pieces of Noah and Abe and I’m really looking forward to their stories. Noah’s mystery is most intriguing.
