I haven't read the book to the left yet. It's book three in a series (the first two aren't about rockstars, they're about other people who need bodyguards), so I'll need to read those first. (Must read/watch all series in order!) (OCD? I have no idea what you're talking about.) But I'm definitely looking forward to reading about the sexy rockstar and his big, strong bodyguard. Rawr!
Another author I've been really enjoying is Jet Mykles, who writes about the oh so delicious boys of Heaven Sent. I've read the first three books of this series (which I'll probably be discussing in more depth in another post), and there are three more books in the series, just waiting for me to eat them up, plus the first book in an off-shoot series.
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that the covers of these books are at least some of the attraction! How can anyone look at that cover to the right and not want to read it? The story itself was a little disappointing, but I could sit and look at the cover all day.
Lest you think this has been a strictly boys' club obsession, I have found one or two m/f rockstar romances. Coming Undone by Susan Andersen was pretty entertaining. PJ is a country star with problems. (OK, so she's country, not rock, but I let it skate by because a lot of the trappings are the same.) Her momma is trashing her in the tabloids, she's developed a crazed stalker, and the bodyguard her record label hires just happens to be an old flame. They all go on tour, and hijinx ensue. A good time is had by all, including the reader.
Then I've got one that I haven't read yet, Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning. This is another m/f rock romance that I picked up when they
had it for free on Kindle for about 5 minutes. They're marketing it as an erotic romance, so fingers crossed that it will be good!
I've got a bunch of other m/m rockstar romances in my future, too. American Love Songs by Ashlyn Kane looks excellent, as does The Replacement Guitarist by Lori Toland. With the Band by L.A. Witt is on my list. And as I was poking around on Goodreads, double checking author names and such for this post, I came across A Change of Tune by JM Cartwright, which is now on the list, too. (Goodreads is really a mixed blessing. I've discovered some great stuff there, but I'm constantly discovering another book that I want. I'll never read it all!)
So, do you like to read about rockstars? Have you read any of the books I mentioned here? Did you like them? And most importantly, are there any other rockstar romances I absolutely must read? I just can't get enough of bad boys with attitude and guitars!
