What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?
Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock God, Kent Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his Australian tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.
Until Libby Myles walks into his life.
Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it's the rock star that's the issue.
Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he's out of costume he's different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.
But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there's more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …
Generally a good read, with little in the way of plot holes or lagging portions. However, it is sometimes hard to get over the "Australianisms" (i.e., "mum" and "bathers") said by a character who is supposed to be from Texas. Probably won't read more of this series, but would not be adverse to reading this author's other work if the characters remain Australian.
This was a whole new slant on a rock stars life. Instead of a drug and drinking crowd you have a normal guy raising a niece and halving a split personality so he can have a separate life that is ingenious. A great plot that show the insecurities in all of us.
Too much of nothing.
The story moved forward at sloth speeds. It should have been cut in half.
