Welcome to my post for the Bad Boy Rock Star book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a $50 gift card. But, before we get to all that, allow me to introduce the book:

Bad Boy Rock Star
Release date: November 18, 2013
Publisher: Self
Genre: NA Contemporary/Rock Star Romance
Series: N/A

Hannah Sorrento never planned to be a band manager. She’s a princess. The toughest obstacle she’s had to face is finding shoes to match her outfit.

Then her father disappears and she’s left with only the money in her purse and a contract for the management of hot, indie rock band, STORM. She plans to sell the management company, one or another, then head back to law school with her designer wardrobe and wait for this whole mess to blow over.

But lead singer, Jack Colt, has other ideas and he’s messing with Hannah’s head. Not to mention her heart.

With the help of crazy rock chick, Angie, Hannah sets the band on their first steps to the big time and learns that poor people can have a lot of fun.

But this isn’t some game she can escape from and soon her secrets get exposed.

He’s arrogant and infuriating but he’s the one that’s there for Hannah when her world comes crashing down. With secrets of his own, will Jack Colt save Hannah or destroy her?

My Rating: 3 Roses

A lovely rock star romance. Bad Boy Rock Star was a great New Adult read. I didn't totally love this book, but I did enjoy it.

Hannah started off as a total brat. But, over the course of the book, she grew up. She became much nicer and much more down-to-earth. And, she proved that she was a strong character as she dealt with the repercussions of her father leaving her without any money. By the end, I really liked her.

I'm going to be honest, Jack could be an ass at times. But, at others, he was very sweet. Like Hannah, he grew over the course of the book. He chilled out and his gentlemanly instincts came out of hibernation. Again, I liked him.

The romance was sweet. Hannah and Jack were two people who, by all accounts, should not have fell in love, but they did. There wasn't much spice going on in this book. There was some hot chemistry, but this was a clean romance.

The plot was well paced. I was kept interested the entire way through, but I can't say I was truly hooked. The ending was good, but it did leave space open for a sequel, so I wonder if there will be one.

Bad Boy Rock Star was an enjoyable New Adult read. I don't know if I would outright recommend this book, but if you're a fan of rock star romance, this might be worth checking out for you.

About the Author:
Candy J. Starr
Candy J. Starr used to be a band manager until she realised that the band she managed was so lacking in charisma that they actually sucked the charisma out of any room they played. “Screw you,” she said, leaving them to wallow in obscurity – totally forgetting that they owed her big bucks for video equipment hire.

Candy has filmed and interviewed some big names in the rock business, and a lot of small ones. She’s seen the dirty little secrets that go on in the back rooms of band venues. She’s seen the ugly side of rock and the very pretty one.

But, of course, everything she writes is fiction.
