GENRE: Contemporary, rock star, romance
LENGTH: 296 pages
Trent Donavan is the golden boy of the rock world. As lead singer of Three Ugly Guys, he’s every fangirl’s dream, and with his newfound fame the women flow as readily as alcohol and drugs. There’s no doubt women are Trent’s preferred indulgence after a successful show. That is, until the feisty little blonde joins the tour. Lexi Marx loves music. It runs in her blood and flows through her soul. As the illegitimate daughter of a rock legend, she’s determined to make it in the music industry on talent alone. So when her agent scores her the opening act gig for the next 3UG tour it seems her hard work, hopes, and dreams have finally come to fruition. Until she spends time with the band. More accurately, Trent Donovan. She’d feel better if that arrogant manwhore of a lead singer would stop hitting on her with his dreamy eyes, witty comebacks, and voice that melts the most jagged of hearts. But Trent is determined to prove to Lexi he’s not such a bad guy, and as music binds their friendship, Lexi’s left with the most confusing of emotions. Could this be love or an uninvited distraction? She can still have it all, if only her heart doesn’t lead her off track.
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Detour is a new Rockstar Romance, that will have you wanting more.
Trent is part of the band Three Ugly Guys. They’ve been together for years. The popularity has grown and they're starting their tour. A new act is coming to open and that is Lexi Marx. She’s talented, and honestly, I think more talented than those Three Ugly Guys.
Lexi has a lot she’s dealing with inside. She’s stubborn and wants to do everything by herself. Then there’s Trent who wants nothing but to have Lexi, even though he’s been warned. This was an enjoyable read. I’m still on the fence about Trent, not sure if I really like him. Overall, I think he’s a good guy but just really cocky. But Lexi is a force to be reckoned with.
The writing was done well and I was interested to see where Shea led us. The only thing is, I didn’t emotionally connect with the characters. It didn’t pull at my heart strings. But they played beautiful music together.
One thing I do want to mention, I do love this cover. It was different for me. Usually, rock star romances have the buff male on the front. This cover really gives you that feel, that it's not like every other rock star romance.
Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
