Bon Jovi.
Bryan Adams.
Presley West.
My favourite men of music.
Only one of them within reach.
The night before Presley West was due to leave our small town of Hollings Hill, all of my high school fantasies came to life. He finally wanted me. Eight years I’d spent pining, and now I, bar-tending Tessa Lisbon, was going to make damn sure I made that night count before the music industry stole him. 
Never screw your idols. That’s what they say, right? Well, I did, and I did it well. So well, I somehow managed to screw my own heart in the process. 
He gave me one night to convince him to stay. In the end, I begged him to go. 
But that’s the thing about rock stars: they do what they want, when they want, and forever didn’t end up being as long as I expected.
Presley was back, and with his face, voice, and music now everywhere I turned, I officially had nowhere left to run.

Watch out ladies as Presley West is about to steal your hearts!
I haven't read a really good rockstar romance in a long time and I really mean that, but as soon as I starting reading this story I could instantly tell that there was something special about it. I just knew that I was on to a smash hit of a story, in fact i'd go as far as to say this is the best rockstar romance i've ever read.
Firstly I was drawn in to the story by it's characters Presley and Tessa. They are two people from the same small town. Presley becomes the drummer in a famous rock band that every woman wants and Tessa is the sassy redheaded girl that works behind the bar in his favorite pub, they form a strange kind of friendship that starts out with banter and silly sarcasm between them that is hilarious, he nicknames her Cherry and this ignites the spark between them.
Secondly the plot line of this book was brilliant it had just the right amount of drama and tension that kept the story interesting and I thought it was very original. Sometimes I find that the drama can be overplayed in a story and becomes silly but this was not the case.
The romance was a slow burn that became so hot it steamed up my glasses, I found Presley to be a swoonworthy hero that I could easily fall in love with. Cherry was also a great heroine, she was always trying to do the right thing while making herself miserable in the process, but I admired her for strength and determination.
This book is an adrenaline fuelled emotional rollercoaster ride. It left me with a massive book hangover and a want to read it all again, because it was just that bloody brilliant. The writing was insanely good and I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
