I like Samantha Chase's writing; it always manages to draw me in so I was excited to see this title. Add in the rock star element and I was even more excited. Overall, I did enjoy this title.

Paige gave me a hard time at first. But then she transformed into a character I think most people can relate to. She doesn't really feel like she's fitting in, always trying so hard to please everyone else and seemingly falling short. She had good growth throughout the book in my opinion.

Dylan, our hot rock star bad boy? One with issues? Who wouldn't want to fix a man like that. Honestly, from the start I liked Dylan. I appreciated his efforts to clean himself up, to become who he ends up being. It's not an easy feat and I think the author handled it well.

I liked these two together. I liked that they each came with their own baggage and that they helped each other through it. I love that Dylan tried to resist Paige and that Paige eventually won the fight. These two needed each other and the way that came about was great.

I did have some issues with the secondary characters. I really got annoyed with some of them, more than the I want to shake you/slap you annoyed, but truly ticked enough to have to take a second to remind myself they weren't real people. That to me I guess just shows that the writing was strong enough for me to believe that these people were real.

I liked this book. I liked the premise, I like how it played out. It was a different look at the rock star type of book. It was written well and aside from some character annoyances I enjoyed it. I would recommend this title.

I have read a couple of books by Samantha Chase, and I was drawn to the idea of a character who was just starting to put his life back together after some bad decisions. The slightly broken, but on the mend hero, is always appealing as they feel human and it's easier to gain a connection with that hero than some other more "perfect" romantic heroes. In this case, I really connected with Dylan, I felt like I understood him and related to him.

I really liked the parts of the book that focused on Paige and Dylan. I liked their chemistry and I liked how real their relationship felt. I also liked, oddly, that Paige was written (at least initially) as a bitch. She was really judgmental, she makes assumptions about Dylan, and I enjoyed the glimpses of the personality of both of them that are given through these interactions.

I was not as thrilled with the secondary characters, particularly Paige's family, and there were times that I felt they were a little unrealistic. I get the idea that they needed to have that connection, but I had a hard time believing a lot of the situations that resulted from those characters.

I recommend this title.

“Dylan…wait.” Looking over his shoulder at her, he waited. “Sorry. I didn’t mean to snap at you.” He smiled. For some reason, she was starting to enjoy seeing him smile. As much as she hated to admit it, Dylan Anders was becoming a friend with whom she enjoyed spending time. Paige no longer looked at their time together as a chore, but rather a perk. Their conversations were always fun and he was quite pleasant to look at. Not that she went for the scruffy, rock-star type. At least, she never had until now. But Paige was far too intelligent to think that someone like Dylan would give her a second look. He was being nice to her because he had to. Or felt like he had to. They had formed a friendship and that was that. During her Google searches, she’d found a plethora of pictures of Dylan with various models and other beautiful and glamorous women. Tall, thin, sexy women. If there was one thing Paige knew about herself, it was how she certainly didn’t fit into that category. So what if he remembered her favorite sandwich and made sure she had something to eat? He was being nice. Still…no one else around her seemed to care if she hadn’t eaten. And so what if he was concerned about her stressing herself out and tried to find a helpful solution? He was probably bored and looking for something to do to pass the time and figured, as his official assistant/babysitter, she’d be open to entertaining him. Only…it felt like more. Like he was a genuinely nice guy who put the needs of others before his own. Or was she seeing something that she only wanted to see? True, it had been far too long since she’d been in a relationship or even went out on a date. Maybe she was a little…needy, in the male-companion territory. And it didn’t help that he was so attractive. “Dammit,” she muttered. “You okay?” Dylan asked. Crap! She hadn’t meant to say anything out loud. “It’s nothing,” she said quickly. “I just hate that everyone isn’t here yet. I should probably make some calls and see what’s going on.” “You mean call your sister and let her know that she needs to call the talent?” he asked sweetly. And if she hadn’t found his smile so darn attractive, she’d want to slap it right off his face. “No,” she said with a hint of irritation. “We’re on the clock and people need to get here now. I’m not starting a phone tree. Excuse me.” As she pulled out her phone to start making calls, Dylan gave a small shrug and walked over to where a couple of other musicians who were now part of the campaign were sitting. Great. He had to have a sexy ass that looked amazing in a pair of faded jeans. A-ma-zing. Fairly grab-able. “Ugh…I really need to stop thinking like this,” she said with a weary sigh and startled when a voice answered on the other end of the phone.
