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.
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.
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.
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 …
