I just finished reading Some Kind of Magic by Mary Ann Marlowe and wow, this was so much better than I expected. There are quite a few rock star romance stories out there and I've read a few but typically they are so similar and only sightly enjoyable. It was written in first person, which isn't something I usually like. But it works here. So the book already had that working against it and it still managed to win me over.
The chemical reaction plot was humorous but also molded the rest of the story into what it was. I wanted to keep turning the page and only put it down for a short time to sleep. The next day I dove right back in and devoured it until done. The characters are believable but not stale and they go well together. Being famous is not always easy and they certainly had their difficulties. And the fact Marlowe got me teary-eyed in a few spots, puts her right up at the top of my list. The conflict at times simply gut punched me and I could feel the pain the heroine was going through.
I would highly recommend this story and the author as one to watch. I know her books will be going in my TBR pile when new ones come out!
