Kenda Lexan has one shot at this interview with Greyson Brant and she’s gotta make it perfect–otherwise she’ll lose her job. Greyson’s up and coming, and got a major reputation for flirting with anyone who interviews him–too bad for him Kenda already knows that rock stars are trouble.

When she has to interview him again she can’t help but realize he’s not that bad of a person. He’s actually nice to his fans, and for some reason he’s nice to her, despite the fact she’s made it clear she’s not interested. So she agrees to hang out–as friends. She remembers what musicians are like, and a run in with her ex just solidifies that she doesn’t need anything to do with the type. But when her sister ends up in the hospital and he shows up to help her out she can’t help but think she might be wrong. Are all rock stars trouble? More importantly is Greyson Brant?

My Review:

I really hate giving books low ratings, because I know how much work goes into writing, but I also want to give my honest opinion. The story has real potential, but needs a lot of editing, and some of the concepts could be expanded upon. I often find an error or two in books published by big publishing companies, so I realize, it happens. But when you are a new author, you need to put out your best piece of work. When I continually fine wrong tenses, or bad jumps in the continuation of the story, I am not encouraged to read more by the author.

With a label of erotic I would expect the sex scenes to be really steamy. The sex in this book was only warm, not hot. And the repetition of Stroke. Stroke. Stroke. in each scene was really off putting. If you can’t come up with something better than Stroke, you need to read more erotica, and keep writing sex scenes until they get up to Hot.

There are a lot of good pieces, they just need to be added to, and edited better. I hope Kelly D. Smith takes the time to go over her story again, because it does have a lot of possibility.
