I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.

He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?


As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.

Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.

The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.


I really enjoyed this first book in Callihan’s new series. I love rock star romances. What woman hasn’t crushed on a rock star? I sure have. The author did a great job with her characters, both primary and secondary.

You have a band member struggling with his musical desire while trying to deal with another band mate’s attempted suicide. His battle with his future and the future of the band. He disappears from that life. Takes a break in a small town.

You also have a woman who’s living half a life after the death of her parents. When the rock star literally crashes into her life, he’s everything she abhors.

Will he ever find his way back to music? Get over his guilt and anger at his friend’s attempted suicide? Find his muse? Will she ever face her life? Do what she’s good at? Will they find any of it together? You’ll have to read and find out for yourselves.
