Release Date: October 6, 2020
SYNOPSIS: If I can keep Hush Note’s leading guitarist, Nixon Winters, on the straight and narrow for the next six months, I’ll finally get my own band to manage—assuming we don’t kill each other first. The egotistical, irritating rock star is fresh out of rehab, but it’s obvious his demons followed him home—and now I’m sleeping down the hall. I’ve watched him self-destruct every summer, and with album deadlines and tour dates looming, I can’t let it happen again. My career is in his hands. But tattoos can’t cover every scar, and I’m starting to see through his trademark, irresistible charm to the damage beneath. Everyone wants the rock star.
I’m falling for the man.
If he doesn’t let me in,
he’ll never break the cycle—
And when these six months are up,
I might be the one left broken.
REVIEW: I knew I needed Nixon’s story, but I had no idea it was gonna be this good! I loved every moment of this book. There was so much emotion. And the connection between the two characters! WOW. I could feel all the chemistry. When we see Nixon in the other two books, we get this little taste of him–the mess he is, but also the hints at how good of a guy he can be. It just made me wonder what was going on with him and what his backstory was. Why is he the way he is? This story definitely delivered! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Nixon and learning why he struggled every summer. I also fell in love with Zoe Shannon. I mean seriously, she was perfection. I think I just loved how they came together. Something I love about this series is that they all end up in forced proximity within a small town. Small towns are always characters in and of themselves, and it add this element to a Rockstar romance that really enriched the stories for me. It has this impact on the main characters and helps them really get to know each other on a deeper level. Seeing them develop a friendship, as well as a relationship, made me so much more invested in the story.
Can we also talk about the commitment to each other?! I know both Nixon and Zoe are all over the place, but not once was it about cheating. The topic of hooking up with other people comes up, there is worry over it, but it is never a real issue. It was refreshing because I feel like it comes up all the time in rockstar romances, even if it’s a misunderstanding. It just felt different from other rockstar romances I’ve read. And finally there is the epilogue. It made me so freaking happy and was honestly one of the best ones I’ve ever read. Getting all of the characters in one place, especially after reading the whole series, brought me so much joy. It was wonderful and I loved it so much–like the cherry on top of the perfect Sunday. I would definitely recommend this series!!
