Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.
Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.
All hail a slump-breaking 24 hour read!
What I love most about this romance is something other people seem to hate – there is no angst or teeth gnashing of any kind. No troubled pasts, no drug use beyond the occasional beer, no Big Misunderstanding. You have two people that, in their own weird way, fall in love.
Is it perfectly believable? Of course not! We’re dealing with a rock star here, and I don’t think anyone would look at the cover and expect down to earth, small town slice o’ life. Instead there’s big shows! Million dollar sponsorships! A tour bus with the most lux shower in the world, including jets in all the right places! Yup, you read that right.
The sex is hot. I appreciate that there’s a slow burn and much common sense between our hero and heroine. The start of the relationship does smack of instalust but I’m surprisingly fine with it. Likewise, some of the publicity stunts seemed like they might unravel if I looked at them too hard… so I didn’t. This isn’t a book to analyze, it’s escapism – perfect for a rainy day or long flight or overtaxed brain. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
