Review

Now, I’m not a huge fan of second-chance personally (what can I say, I hold a grudge), but it really worked for this book! But it might have helped having a rock star swoon worthy main character to sway me over to this trope. So it’s official, I am now on the dark side because I thoroughly enjoyed this novella!

I think I liked this version of the second chance trope because there was ill will between the two but they also wished one another well. Which is a conundrum, but it made it more of a two destined to be together but trying at the wrong time (if that poorly worded explanation makes sense, I cannot think this week). But sometimes you do meet the right person and it just takes a second or a few chances to make it work. Our lives don’t always line up the way we want them and the same goes for relationships. And this novella tells us the story of two people who meet again and the sparks are still flying even after everything they went through together.

I’m such a sucker for rockstar romances, so that is probably why I loved this one so much. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read about a rockstar and enter that crazy world? But the characters really made this novella as I went along with them on this story. There were ups and downs, laughs and frustration, and plenty of chemistry!

Excerpt

“No,” said the bodyguard.

“But—”

“Miss, do you have any idea how many people try to get backstage by claiming they have some sort of relationship with Mr. Dillon?” Face a careful blank, the man in the slick black suit stared down at me. He had a point. I’d pushed through a crush of fans, getting my toes stomped on several times, along with taking an elbow to the kidney, just to talk to this guy. God only knew what it took to get near the star of the show.

“I’d imagine a lot,” I yelled back at him. Necessary given the volume of the music filling the space. “The difference here is I’m not lying.”

“But since everyone says that, you can see from my perspective how that’s not actually a point of difference.”

Adam Dillon, rock star extraordinaire, gyrated his slim denim-clad hips like an Alt-Rock Elvis on the nearby stage. He pouted and crooned about the woman who’d done him wrong. Me. That’s right, I was the big bad ex who’d broken him and woke him to the dangers of love. Or so the song said.

The song lied and then some.

According to the lyrics he was currently wailing, I’d ground his heart beneath my five-inch heels before blowing him a kiss goodbye. From memory, there’d been a lot of shouting, but no blowing of kisses. And having just kicked off the flats I wore for work, I’d been barefoot, my legs and back aching. No way had I been strutting around in stilettos. Home from a hard day at the hair salon, I’d returned to find Adam on the couch. The same place he’d been when I’d left for work approximately eleven hours earlier. The same place he’d been for what felt like months as I worked my ass off to pay the rent. That’s when all hell broke loose. However, it wasn’t the only issue that had caused our relationship to bomb. Nothing’s ever simple.

But back to the here and now. I grabbed the slip of paper out of my front pocket, holding it up for his perusal. “My name is Jill Schwartz. How many of those people claiming to know him have one of these?”

His eyes widened as he scanned the name on the check, before widening again at the amount. And fair enough too. I’d had a mild panic attack myself when it had first arrived. When Adam decided to make a statement, he didn’t bother with subtle. If only I could figure out what it all meant. If it meant anything at all, of course. And that question was what had brought me here tonight.

Review

IT’S STEAMY NOVELLA TIME! I’ve really been enjoying reading some romance novellas lately. I think it’s because I’m toe-ing that line of slumpsville and they’re keeping me entertained and short enough to where I’m not losing focus. It’s just that time of the semester I guess, plus, you know, the world is basically burning. But I was super excited to get an introduction to author Shayla Black with this one!

But where do I even begin with this?! It’s super fast paced but still extremely well written to where you don’t feel like you’re missing anything. Basically, the story fit perfectly into this little novella. Then there’s the characters, they were so great and I loved getting to know them. And lastly there’s the romance! Phew! I loved it!

As I said, this is my first introduction to Shayla Black. I really love these 1001 Nights novellas because they allow me to check out new authors before taking the “full” plunge into their stories (or they just give me more of some of my favorite authors). And so far I have yet to be disappointed by one! So I’m really excited to add some more Black to my reading!
