Publisher's summary

What chance does a small-town girl have with a world-famous rock star?

Two years after his wife’s death, rock star Garrett Hayes hasn’t moved on. But he has moved out of L.A. Where better to escape his past than a small town in the northern California mountains? If only he could get the townsfolk of Wildwood to leave him the hell alone.

Ani Bennet returned to her hometown for some much-needed serenity. The last thing she needs is a grumpy, too hot for his own good, rich and famous rock star living next door—and rent-free in her brain.

She set her fangirl tendencies aside and deleted his photo from her cell when they became neighbors. But when Garrett asks for help, she can’t say no. The problem is, spending time together is making those fangirl feelings resurface—and bringing them to a whole new level.

What chance does a small-town girl have with world-famous rock star? It’s time for Ani to set her fears aside and find out.

Don't bother with this one

This is a sad review. Kylie Scott has been a favorite author but I think this is the last book of hers I will buy. Seems like ever since 2021 she is so off her game. This book was boring, and SO MANY of the lines of dialogue are STRAIGHT out of her other books. I could literally read a line and tell you what of her other books it was from.
There was potential there to explore the damaged heroine Ani and the event that caused her to be paranoid and afraid. It could have been developed and made story more real...Sort of like Clementine in REPEAT, but no at one point after building some drama in the 1st part of the book Ani has a scare and just blurts it out and doesn't mention it again - WHAT? With all the research the paparazzi was doing on her this could have come out and caused more drama.
I really could not get behind either of the main characters ugg. Garrett was okay but ehh? His best friend and former band member was the best character that popped in and out of the book. I truly loved the Stage Dive books, Lies, and Repeat. The stuff she has written since is just bad. So sad really.

Cute short book

I love everything Kylie Scott does. This book was a feel good shorter HEA story. Good classic Kylie Scott humor and always solid narration from Andi Arndt.

Could have been really good

This could have been a really good story, even started out well but then it seemed like the author just lost momentum. I felt like I got the condensed version and really wanted more. Andi Arndt did a fantastic job.

Not the best

Love Kylie Scott’s past books. This was just too rushed and not very substantive. Felt like the story was missing something. It’s still a cute listen…just not the best.

So perfectly sweet—But at break-neck speed!

I absolutely love Kylie Scott’s no-nonsense writing style. There’s not a crap-ton of the ridiculous “destiny & fate” mess, repetitive internal (“I’m so broken I don’t know what to do so I’m going to overreact like a total moron and then repeat the justifying diatribe in my mind for 3 chapters tormenting my sweet-as-love man as he wallows in self-loathing) monologues, or long, drawn out and overdone friction. Instead, the books are so well-written. The characters have a lot of realistic and meaningful monologues and meaningful actions, which move the story along perfectly. The slow-burn is done so perfectly, too. Of course, Andi Arndt is unlike any other. She truly makes a story so much more! Her talented, quality narration is such a wonderful companion to Kylie Scott’s characters. I did give this one only 4 stars because, for some odd reason I can’t quite pinpoint, it seemed to end abruptly. Perhaps that’s because it’s was a beautiful, straightforward story of healing and beautiful, sweet, passionate romance, and that’s so infrequently done in the modern genre that it took me aback a bit. There were no loose ends, so I can’t decide why it felt abrupt. Perhaps I was just enjoying it so much that it seemed rushed, but I can’t identify anything I would have preferred Scott had done differently except perhaps drawn out the HEA just a tiny bit more. However, I absolutely loved it!

Kylie Scott delivers

A great rock star romance. I really enjoyed the small town setting and local characters.

Disappointed

I think it’s because I love K.S. books so much I was disappointed. If you love and buy all of a writers books you anticipate being wowed. This fell flat. Felt rushed. Everything fell into place…. In literally days. Also no adorable banter. Where’s the banter K.S. Is so amazing at? So I was bored reading this book. I guess it doesn’t matter but the cover doesn’t match the hero. Oh well, it won’t stop me from looking forward and buying her next book.

Fast & Fantastic!

Listen…I love all the hours-long books by Kylie…she can take you through the roller coaster of emotions…the angstiest of all the angst (yes, angstiest is a word ‘cause I typed it), the hurts to beat all hurts…the sweetest, most selfless and giving loves…dragged on and on until us readers can’t take anymore…but then, she can also give us THIS book. Short, sweet, fast-paced, to the point. Easy peasy…still gives me all the feels…but in short order.

In this one, I adore all the characters…warts and all…

This one may not be for those who want to read in a state of total anxiety ALL the time…mentally and emotionally experiencing all the gory, traumatic details that form and drive the main characters. Not everything is for everyone…if I read a book by my favorite author and I don’t like it as much as previous books, I’ll just move on from it…I won’t trash it for others who could like it…others who may appreciate that particular story.

Don’t think you can put Kylie in a box my fellow readers…she’s proven that she can really write, like, whatever…and be damned good at it…regardless of how short or long or slow or fast or HOT. Just sayin’…

Enjoy!

No worth the time or money

Stale retread of earlier books . Weak character development. Not up to Kylie Scott’s earlier books.
