Knox Rivers is a pop music god; an out-of-control pop music god whose latest scandal is that he has hit a camera-toting paparazzi. He is about to go on tour and needs to clean up his persona, but he really isn’t inclined.
Enter Libby Graves. Even at 23 she’s seen it all before because she toured with her Dad who was a rock superstar. She isn’t impressed with the bad boy attitude or the music god stance. She is strong and take-charge and exactly what Knox needs.
This is my 144th book of the year. One thing that this reading year has taught me is how good a book is by the number of times I check to see the progression on my reading app. If the book is slow and disappointing, I’m frequently checking. If it’s great, I don’t check often until I’m getting near the end, wondering how much longer the deliciousness will continue.
Pop Rock is delicious. Knox is one of the yummier pop idols. He came from a poor background, treasures the guitar that his grandmother bought him that allowed him to become who he is, and is a decent guy even though the media and his ex-girlfriend try to portray him otherwise.
While Libby is initially reluctant to become very involved with him, her experience has provided her with enough reasons to stay farther than arm’s length from musicians, she sees that Knox is genuine.
I always enjoy a good music novel and this is definitely one of the best and best written I’ve read, with characters who have depth and real motives for their behavior. Neither stays childishly resistant to considering other viewpoints.
This new adult novel will definitely appeal to those of you who like romantic music novels with steamy windows. Charity Ferrell is a new to me author, but I’ll be looking for other novels by her.
I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
