Jamison Matthews has lusted after Ryder Montgomery since she was a preteen. But now that Ryder and her brother’s band, Shaken Dirty, has made it huge, she’s just one of many pining for the brooding lead singer. Too bad Ryder still sees her as a little sister. Not that it matters. Her brother would never allow it, and the last thing Jamison wants is to be another notch on a rock star’s bed post. Even if it’s Ryder’s.
Ryder doesn’t deserve happiness. After his fame destroyed his last girlfriend, he swore he’d never fall in love again. So when Jamison, the girl he’s been in danger of loving for years, joins the band on the road, he’ll do anything to deny the sparks between them–even after one hot night together. But Jamison is determined to show Ryder that he’s worthy of love–her love–and that she’s all grown up and ready to play.
About the author:
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.

review
I received a few recommendations for this book and as soon as I saw that the male character is a rock star, I used my very well trained 1-click finger and bought it.
This novel is not very long and yet, it’s the perfect length as the characterization is mastered and the plot is not rushed, but well-brought to better enjoy the connection between the two main characters.
I was also surprised to enjoy so much the alternate POV because it wasn’t repetitive and it conveyed the feelings of the two characters perfectly, which helped some more the characterization and in turn, I cared more about the characters.
The secondary characters brought something to the dynamic of the story without being all cliché. In fact, I really want to know more about them as they truly are interesting.
The whole story isn’t that original, but it’s not full of clichés as the female character has a backbone, is smart and is just a tiny bit feisty to make it fun sometimes. Also, the male character is the usual kind we all love so much, but he is also very drool worthy and swoon worthy at the end.
Some scenes are openly very hot, but it’s written with taste and is well balanced with the plot. Nothing is overdone and it makes this book all the more addictive.
The author’s writing style is dynamic, flawless and matches the genre without over doing it. Just for that thing alone I know I’ll read more from this author.
The author also broaches some important subjects like drugs, abuse and such and sometimes I would have enjoyed it even more if she would have dug deeper when it comes to the main characters’ past. But I’m being picky as it doesn’t tarnish my reading experience.
As you can guess now, I’m going to read the other books in this series as soon as possible. I’m craving to read more about the other guys in the band.
Who read this book? What do you think about Ryder? Hot Stuff or not? (He sure is my book boyfriend of the week) 😉
