Rocked Up by Karina Halle & Scott MacKenzie
Rocked Up is a STANDALONE rockstar romantic comedy and the fun and sexy brainchild of New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle and her husband Scott Mackenzie.
I have been watching him since I was a child.
He didn't notice me back then and it didn't matter. Brad Snyder, guitarist and singer for one of the world's greatest bands, was my entire life.
My father, the CEO of Ramsey Records, takes credit for all of Brad's success, trying to control him in the same way he's controlled me.
But I finally get an opportunity to prove myself.
To be wild.
To be free.
Today I'm auditioning to be the replacement bass player for Brad's band. If I get the job, I'll go on tour and work with Brad every day, in very close proximity.
There's only one rule: he's not allowed to touch the boss's daughter.
Remember when I said that Brad never used to notice little ol' me?
Well, Brad's noticing me now.
In a way that's going to get us both in trouble.
My name is Lael Ramsey and we all know how this will turn out.
I am a sucker for a rock star romance and I am a big fan of Halle’s.
Brad isn’t your typical rock star and that is what I loved about his character. He was a breath of fresh air, not falling into that rock star category.
Lael lost her mother at a young age and her father is a powerful man in the music business. What he says goes. Lael wants to be her own person, away from her father. She is a very talented bass player and when an opportunity opens for her to play for her favorite band, she takes it.
Lael’s dad thinks this is a phase and appeases her but he has placed some very strict rules when it comes to his only daughter. DO NOT TOUCH!
You know what they say about rules… they are made to be broken.
The chemistry between Brad and Lael is great. The sex scenes where HOT, a little over descriptive but nothing that turned me off. I enjoyed the dual points of view and the background of how crazy and dirty the music business can be. Towards the end, I wished there was a little more action taken when it came to Mr. Ramsey.
A fun collaboration and an enjoyable read.
