Title: Rocking Standby
Author: Cassandra Lawson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 22
There are a lot of perks that go along with being an up and coming rock star. I may not get the private jet, but I always fly first class. Gone are the days when I have to pursue a woman. They toss their panties at me and shove their numbers in the front of my jeans. I am living a charmed life.
So, how did I end up stuck as a standby passenger, hoping to get a flight? Not only did I get stuck in coach, I ended up seated next to the girl next door. Bentley seems sweet and genuine, a far cry from the women I normally date. At least, that’s what I believed before finding out Bentley is a deceitful gold-digger.
There is no room in my life for romance. That’s what I’ve been telling myself since I lost the number of the sweet guy I met on my flight. He somehow managed to turn my bad day around, and for a short time, I considered going out with him. He’d been funny and sweet, or so I’d believed. Boy was I wrong.
Gage Addison isn’t just some guy from my flight. He’s lead guitarist of Reckless Release—a freaking rock star! No matter how sweet they seem, I don’t date musicians, especially one who calls me a gold-digging whore the second time he sees me. Getting involved with Gage is not an option, no matter how hot he makes me.
Cassandra Lawson is an author of paranormal romance and contemporary romantic comedy from the San Francisco Bay Area. She has always had an active imagination and enjoyed making up stories from a young age. A hopeless romantic, she loves a happy ending. When she is not writing, Cassandra enjoys baking, spending time with her family, listening to music, or curling up with a good book.
Rocking Standby by Cassandra Lawson really has the perfect title to describe the two leading characters . It was my first book by this author and I liked her writing style. The characters she created are another thing.
Gage is a great person – actually almost to sweet and caring (leaving out his one slip when he went out all a**hole- but yeah I mean it was because he cared so much for his brother) …
Bentley on the other hand is a super confusing character. She was super reluctant on one side and on the other almost alpha when she wanted something – like for example a one night stand.
Just following her line of thoughts gave me a whiplash…. So forgive me for saying that she is not my favorite person in this story.
Do not get me wrong – just because I do not like Bentley so much—(she really is different that the average ) – it does not mean that the story is bad – quite the opposite actually – and it is totally OK for me that the female lead is that way
If there was one thing that was bugging me in total – it was that issue with Gabe’s mum …. I felt odd that she was living the way she was given her situation – (being vague because of my little to no spoiler rule)
I really liked the story in total – and I can absolutely see a series here with the secondary characters we meet. I am pretty sure I would pick up another book featuring the characters of this series – so go on enjoying this one …
