Publisher's Summary

Country music star Devin McClain never imagined he'd attract crazed fans who would do anything to garner his attention. When veiled threats become real, he agrees to hire a discreet security detail. But Devin is shocked to find that the bodyguard is a hard-bodied woman and that he's attracted to the steely-eyed stunner. Former soldier Liberty Masterson's return to civilian life is wrought with challenges until she lands a job with a prestigious security firm. But when she agrees to provide personal protection during a cross-country tour, she doesn't realize she has signed up to masquerade as the playboy star's girlfriend. However, Devin soon realizes that he wants to turn their charade of a romance into reality. Although Liberty surrenders to his every whim behind closed doors, she fears the sexy country star doesn't see the real her. Devin can't help but worry when the tour ends that there might not be enough between them to build something that won't fade away. Contains mature themes.

Hillbilly Jerk

Hillbilly Rockstar was entertaining in the beginning. Liberty (ex military bodyguard) was a tough, smart, and independent women who could kill with her bare hands, Devin was a self absorbed, promiscuous country star who had let stardom go to both his heads. He was supposed to still mourn a baby sister who died of cancer yet he treated most women with contempt.

At first Devin seemed to admire Liberty and then develop real feelings for her. However, as soon as he got her into bed, Devin become an aggressive, violent jerk. I was hoping that Liberty would knee him in the balls but she allowed herself to be treated like a doormat. As if a soldier who survived combat would surrender her dignity that easily!

I find it annoying when an author creates a strong female character, then has that same woman do things that are totally out of character. Liberty was not a meek, pathetic wimp. I found the sex scenes particularly creepy and cold; Devin was controlling and degrading with no hint of humor, tenderness or affection. Not sexy, not romantic!

A Good Listen

I’ve listened to this book a couple of times now and I’ve enjoyed it each time. It’s a good story with a strong female lead and a somewhat reformed country star womanizer. It’s a stereotypical “romance” storyline but there is a good story being told outside of the relationship as well. I’ve not listened to all the books in this series but but I haven’t been disappointed by the ones I’ve heard so far.

I enjoyed the narration, but my only complaint with her performance was the stomping sound in the background. Maybe it’s only noticeable with headphones but it sounds like it was recorded in an apartment/home with thin floors/ceilings. It was a constant distraction so I lowered the score for this reason.

I do give them bonus points for using the term ENTANGLEMENT before Jada Pinkett Smith made it infamous lol.

Truly loved this story

It surprised me, I’m not usually a fan of musicians, however this was a very well written story and characters. It had intrigue, humor, and hot sex. Very good story.

Best of series so far but narration needs work

Devin McClain is a narcissistic country music star who treats women like disposable int and ignores his family. He meets his match with Liberty. Devin has some redeeming character traits like helping sick kids and he turns his man whore ways around when he falls for Liberty. She is a great character.
Scarlet Chase is ok as a narrator of female parts but is terrible doing male voices.

Narrator Read Erotica Like A Phone Book

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe as a physical book, but definitely not the audio. The story is fairly good, but the erotic scenes could be longer and better written.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

There are narrators* who's have the voice and intonation to make erotica sizzle off the page to the ears (and other parts of one's body :-)... this narrator is NOT one of them!

* Examples : Clarissa Knightly, Clare Claremont, and sometimes Caroline Wintour.

Steamy, heartwarming who-dun-it romance


From the description, I was expecting this to be a cross between Christine Feehan's intense rockstar romance Turbulent Sea and Olivia Cunning's Sinners on Tour sexcapades. Since most of Cunning's sinful sexcapades were too much for me with the acrobatic and gratuitous erotica, I was thrilled that this was more like the sexy intensity in Turbulent Sea.

But that's where the similarity ends. With a wonderful role reversal, James creates a fascinating character in Liberty, the soldier sister mentioned in Saddled and Spurred, sister to lead Harper Masterson. Liberty is dealing with post war reintegration as a security specialist and now bodyguard, a role usually played in romantic fiction by the male. But Liberty is far from butch. And Devin is far from the stereotypical music star. If you've caught him in previous books in this edgy series, you probably suspected that!

James does an excellent job of turning these two characters toward one another despite a lot antagonism on both sides and I was thrilled that she avoided some of the usual cliches often seen in romantic suspense. Mostly I was thrilled that she didn't used the tired "misunderstanding" plot device as I was convinced of early on. The who-done-it part was a little too obvious, and I'd down grade a great listen to 4.5 if we could.

The pacing will keep you engaged in the story, the romance will keep you warm, and the sexy parts will make you burn. James has written the best one of the Blacktop Cowboy series--in character development, plot, and resolution. Altho all the other books in the series earned four stars from me, this one gets a 5.
Thoroughly enjoyable. I might even give country music a second try!

Holy Hotness!

Bad-ass bodyguard protecting hot musician with stalker problems. Yep we've all seen and read this story right? Wrong the bad-ass bodyguard is sultry sexy Liberty. The musician Man-whore Devin.

They have to get passed their preconceived notions of each other he thinks she's butch asexual woman with not sex appeal she thinks he's and smooth talking man whore who use his celebrity to get laid. When the get past those hurdles and fall into bed together it is so hot you'll have to turn on your AC.. Two experienced sexually adventurous adults doing their best to devour each other at every turn.

Honestly it is hard not to like Liberty she is all strength and confidence on the surface and sweetly insecure at her core. Devin despite being smoking hot a little high handed and arrogant is decidedly sweet and vulnerable too. The sex is hot the fights funny and the ending sexy and sweet.
