Rocked By Taryn Elliott
Love definitely wasn't on the setlist.
Opening for their idols on their first tour, Oblivion is living the dream. Mostly. Frustrated at being shoved out of his mediator role by their new manager, Deacon McCoy loses himself in brutal workouts. He only comes up for air long enough to refuel—and to tease the deliciously cute chef who makes him crave a lot more than what she's offering on her serving plate.
As the child of roadie parents, Harper Pruitt has heard every pickup line twice. To her, musicians are one step above the scraps on her cutting board. All she wants is to get enough experience to run her own catering company, but Deacon and his bottomless stomach are too tempting to resist. He's far from the typical rock star and before long, she finds herself experimenting with him, inside and out of the kitchen.
Apron - and panties - optional.
When Harper sees that Deacon’s dream band with his best friends may be turning into a nightmare, she can't walk away. Deacon's so much more than just a peacemaker and the man behind the bass. But she has her own dreams to chase...even if she's starting to think what she's building with him might be the biggest one of all.
Rate & take
I'm not sure what happened here. It started off so well, full of plot promise and lacking in the cheese factor. I really liked the lead characters and felt they were believable and had decent dialog. Then it seemed like the plot weakened with too much repetition of internal angst and at the same time obstacles were too easily pushed aside with a shrug and an "I'm sorry," with everyone moving along as if nothing happened. I know it's not pleasant to be involved with real life drama, but if it's going to written about it I wish the author's would please give us credit for knowing sometimes we just can't all get along.
Note: This is book one in the Oblivion series.
