Bad Boy Meets Shy Girl

Contemporary Rock Star Romance

Shy wallflower Charlie James has secrets, one of which is her talent. With a dark past, she lacks the confidence to strike out on her own so she sticks to writing the hit songs for other artists. When devilishly sexy rocker Hudson Smith crashes into her world he offers to give her unique lessons to push her out of her comfort zone.

The moment he called me his siren Hudson put me under his spell. With rippling muscles, tattoos, and a voice full of dirty promises, I instantly become someone my friends wouldn't recognize. Normally a girl who easily hides in the shadows, the British bad boy saw me and claimed me at first sight. I never thought I would see him again but when he shows up where I work I fall literal heels over head in true Charlie fashion.

Hudson is a broken man running from his past not knowing if he'll have a future but knows for damn sure he's not good enough for the intriguing and mysterious blonde girl with black-rimmed glasses that sings like an angel and stars in his super X rated fantasies.

Things between them turn from friendly to intensely passionate but when rock stardom comes calling...will the two be able to find their way back to each other?

What a book!! I was enthralled and hypnotized by this story. This is the first book that I have had the pleasure of reading by Ms. Lauren, and it definitely won’t be my last.

Charlie and Hudson meet not in the most traditional way, but it was hot as hell. Not knowing who each other were was freeing until they meet again. This time it’s for business. Charlie is a songwriter and Hudson is the singer for the band Headspace that she will be writing songs for. Hudson writes songs himself, so they end up working together a lot. Can their working relationship stay platonic?

This book was a whirlwind of emotions. I loved Charlie and the shy badass she is and Hudson….SWOON!! I mean, who doesn’t love a hot Rockstar? I loved their chemistry and the flow of the book. The backstories were believable and the pull these two had for each other just made me at the edge of my seat with anticipation. LOVED every second of it!!!
