❤❤ Blackthorne by Lexxie Couper- 4 star Review ❤❤

Rhythm is in his genes. She is in his heart.

Heart of Fame, Book 8

Caitlin Reynolds doesn’t care if the rock star lookalike trying to get into her bar is who he says he is. Sticking to the rules is a big reason the Chaos Room is the hottest velvet rope in Sydney.

Okay, so he’s freaking hot, but she’s been ignoring her hormones since her fiancé left her to go be a doctor in Somalia and then went missing.

After a shattered knee ended his promising soccer career, it seemed only natural for Josh Blackthorne to follow in his father’s rock-god footsteps. Now he’s a megastar, lusted after by women—and men—the world over. But he’s been in lust with Caitlin since he saw her picture years ago.

When Caitlin realizes Josh is who he says he is, she’s the first to make it right. But no matter how badly his seduction makes her want to melt into his arms, there’s a ghost hanging over their heads. A ghost who turns out to be not so legally dead after all…

Warning: Contains a rock star who’s livin’ the dream and livin’ it large, a self-made businesswoman with a weakness for a cheeky smile, and a red-hot battle of tormented wills. May stimulate a desire to throw your panties onto the nearest stage.

I've never read Lexxie Couper before, this was my first. And I can say I'm pleasantly surprised. This was a good book.

Quite the predicament our little Caitlin finds herself in in this book. She's trying to stay true to someone who's dead but falling for someone who's everything she's ever wanted. I felt for her. For her loss. For her confusion. For her situation. But Josh is there and he's so not what she expected. Not what I expected either. He's wasn't the arrogant rockstar you expect. Well he is, but he isn't. He's a good guy and how can you not fall in love with the way he treats his sister and the way he treats Caitlin.

I can also say that Lexxie provided a twist in the story I didn't really see coming and not the typical twist in a rock star romance.

Lexxie has provided us great main characters but secondary characters that kick ass too. Her uncles are amazing, her second in command Zach, and even Matt are amazing compliments to the story of Josh and Caitlin. Not only do the characters fit well into the story but so does the lizard. yeah, you've got to read the book to understand that part. The story flows very well, and Lexxie has written characters that everyone can relate to.

I give this book 4 stars
