Publisher's Summary

Mia Lassiter is thrilled to finally put her artistic skills to use working for her aunt's interior design shop in her hometown of East Beach. While renovating an old mansion overlooking stunning Lake Haven, she encounters a scruffy but attractive man named Brennan - the owner's son. She doesn't realize this sexy recluse is actually Everett Alden, the world-famous rock star in hiding who's nursing his own artistic and personal crises.

As their personalities clash, tension simmers between the struggling artist and jaded musician, and their time spent alone together in the gorgeous old house only serves to turn up the heat. Soon, Mia and Brennan's creative passions boil over to inspire passions of another kind...

But reality comes crashing in when Mia's celeb-obsessed cousin discovers Brennan's true identity - and reveals it to the world. As paparazzi swarm the mansion, Brennan is thrust back into his rock star lifestyle. Will Mia lose her soul mate just when she's finally found him? Can their love survive the glaring spotlight?

A Very PG Rock Star Romance

This was a very sweet love story that focused less on the rock star and more on the romance. It didn't delve to deep into the life of the rock star like most traditional books so if you're looking for that look elsewhere. This is also a very PG book so of your looking for something a little more steamy, also look elsewhere. This is just a cute sweet simple love story. Worth a listen.

The rock star and the artist -- ROCK!!

Really enjoyed this book! It was fun and romantic and yes, it's quite sexy. It was SO enjoyable and just what I needed.

Honestly, I was a bit weary going in as I've been surprised in the past with too much sexiness. I love sexy scenes but they have to be done tastefully and they have to add to the story. Julia London definitely delivered.

Argh! I can't express enough how much I enjoyed this story. It was so much fun! I just wish I felt more connected with the characters.

Cristina Panfilio was delightful as a narrator. I loved the different voices she provided each character and she was quite soothing to listen to after a long day of work.

Cheers to an awesome, fun and romantic story!

Great story, weak ending

As long as I’m reading a fairy tale about a quirky local girl falling in love with a visiting rock star, I want the fantasy to continue all the way to the end. This book stumbles to the end with “reality” getting in the way of the kind of satisfying ending that leaves me smiling. I suppose the author is trying to be true to the characters - he’s a busy person in much demand and she does not like the limelight. But hello....she lived in NYC for 7 years. She can certainly handle herself in a big city. Anyway, the whole book is enjoyable and low stress with lots of conversations about artistic inspiration - his music and her painting. Her family and the lakeside town add extra elements of interest.
