What happens when a bad-boy celebrity rocker meets a small-town bestselling novelist? Find out in this first book in the sizzling new True series by Liora Blake!
While most novelists would consider jetting off to Hollywood for a TV interview rather exciting, small-town Montana writer Kate Mosely finds it all a bit exhausting. After losing her husband in a car accident where she was behind the wheel, Kate has finally found her bearings in the world again, rebuilding a simple but stable life. And even if that means a lot of lonely nights watching old movies and quiet days writing obituaries for her hometown newspaper, Kate’s not sure she’s ready for her life to change—again.
Until she shares the stage—and a whole heap of carnal gazes—with rock star Trevor “Trax” Jenkins. Despite his intimidating on-stage bravado, underneath it Kate discovers a man with a Rilke poem tattooed on his arm, an appreciation for cronuts, and a snarky wit that matches her own.
As she and Trevor explore their heated chemistry, the scarred parts of Kate’s heart begin to heal, making room for a love so passionate it makes her want long-forgotten things equal parts naughty, heart-swelling, and joyful. But when a searing exposé in a trashy gossip magazine sends Kate running, will it threaten their chances at forever?
Kate has been living what she thought was a good life since her husband died three years ago. She didn't think she needed another man in her life. Until she met Trax - as everyone else knows him - or to Kate he's Trevor. A chance meeting with a rock star during publicity for her book turns her world upside down. She doesn't believe that she could fall for him so hard, but what if she could? Would she be able to handle it, or would her past come back to haunt her?
I really enjoyed this book...it might be because it gave me a little hope for my own version of this kind of fantasy happening to me and a certain singer......
It could happen, if it could happen to small town girl Kate Mosely then it could happen to me...hopefully.
Anyways! Enough about my hopes! Trevor is a bad boy who wants to be a good boy. Trax was the image he created when he was young, as he grew up so did his morals. But having a fan base that is use to the bad boy he has to keep that persona alive as well. For Kate it's clear she likes Trevor, she can handle Trax too, but for her Trevor is the one she loves. I liked how their relationship started. It took a natural path, most romance novels I read the relationship takes on too quickly. One minute we don't know the man and the next she is completely in love. Blake does a good job at easing them into their relationship - Kate isn't sure how this is actually going to work, if it will work. So she keeps a distance which in actuality makes their relationship seem natural. They talk on the phone, they text, they date here and there - and then they jump into the full on relationship!
I do have to say that I feel the end was rushed. The whole road trip between Kate and her sister Lacey seems a big quick. I would've been okay if it took a few chapters for us to get to the part where Kate realizes what she really wants.
All in all it's a great book. And I will be getting the next one because, well, I cannot wait to be once again immersed in the world that is the True series!
