Book & Author Details:
Rock Star’s Heart by Kella Campbell
Publication date: 28th February 2018
Genres: Rock Star Romance
When a twist of fate throws university student Crys Murphy into an unexpected job on tour with a wildly successful rock band, her crush on the guitarist turns into powerful temptation. But there’s a dark side to the glamour and champagne: Blade has anger and addiction issues, a history of partying with groupies, and a tendency to get naked in public — and Crys is supposed to keep him out of trouble.
As she gets to know the talented and lonely man behind the bad boy behavior, the chemistry between them wavers on the edge of something deeper. But he doesn’t do relationships, and she grew up expecting a white-picket-fence future. Can he reform and open his heart to love? Will she give up her straitlaced upbringing for her troubled rock star?
I really liked a lot of this book. There were some tangibly emotional sections which were very moving, and the connection between Blade and Crys was delightful to watch evolve.
There were points that niggled – the initial set up, and the management interference, though I understand their place in the story, and they didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the story.
The bit that took the shine off for me, was the rather rushed conclusion of the romantic element of the story. It felt a little forced against the development of the relationship to that point.
That said, this was an entertaining read.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Kella Campbell can usually be found in Vancouver, Canada.
She writes mostly romance, because love and relationships are what she finds most interesting about life and in fiction. Even when she dips into other genres, her writing almost always has romantic/emotional/relationship elements.
Kella likes tea and dark chocolate and happily-ever-after endings.
