Sexy bad boy Charlie Walker had everything he could ever want as a rockstar: a platinum album, a cushioned bank account, and an endless supply of groupies desperate to have him. But things changed when the band’s drummer went missing, forcing Charlie to go it alone and question if he truly has what it takes to succeed in the business.
Small-town girl Evelyn Kendall has just arrived in Brooklyn Heights. With a new job and her best friend as a roommate, she’s ready for an epic adventure free from her familyâs constant supervision. She’s not prepared for the muscle-bound, tattooed star who appears out of nowhere and rocks her world.
When Charlie locks gazes with the freckled brunette at his first solo gig, he falls hard and fast for reasons he canât explain. Determined to keep Evelyn in his life, heâs ready to change his ways, even if they run blood deep. But will their instant attraction be enough to weather the storm brought on by the perils of fame, Charlieâs secrets, and Evelynâs overly protective brothers?
Warning: This book is filled with sexy bad boys and strong leading ladies. If youâre looking for an engaging read with panty-melting love scenes, then youâve come to the right place.
There was a lot of stuff that I liked about Brooklyn Rockstar (Kendalls #1) by Jennifer Ann and also some things that I felt not so good about.
First of all â it is really well written and even if there is not much information on the Background of some of the characters it really works out â which is already amazing on its own.
Often enough you encounter books that could be really good but due to a lack of character development they will never be rated appropriately.
But also on the other hand I felt that the focus of the book was somehow not where it should have been.
The actual plot twist became a side notice at a certain point and the way it was told there should have been repercussions for the characters but those were single handedly wiped away. I kind of felt strange at that moment. Like :âwait what?â
I kept expecting something totally different to be honest when it comes to that part of the plot. (I am referring to Charlies monologues), it felt like the author toyed with several ideas and directions for the plot before deciding where to go.
That might have been an interesting plot idea on its own â but the way that was chosen in the end was missing out and felt âflatâ to me.
I can see a lot of storylines for the future of that series and some of them seem really interesting to me. Including the one I would have guessed (again referring to Charlies monologues) â well but who knows .. the author might really surprise here â because somehow I feel not done with that plotline.
An I really hope Ms. Ann will âresurrectâ (pun intended) that plotline
4 Stars for the idea of where this might go â¦
