Rebecca Chase has never been interested in dating, and definitely not in relationships. She only had two goals in life, to get her college degree and to get the hell away from her house. When she meets Lucas everything that she thought she had wanted was now turned upside down.

Lucas Masterson has it all money, fame, and his dream job of being in the music industry. He knows that most people are just out for themselves and will use him as much as they can. When he meets Becca he realizes that he never really knew what he wanted. He thinks that she is the most amazing person he has ever met, but can he balance her and his crazy life?

Can two people who come from completely different worlds make it work or will the people trying to tear them apart succeed?

Get ready to get lost in this crazy romantic adventure and surrender yourself to Lucas and Becca.

Okay! So first off let me start by saying that I had NO idea that this book was part of a series….DAMN ME! I never look these things up before I sign up to review them!!

This book was a nice change in pace for me. I’ve been reading some seriously heavy stuff lately, and this book was a totally cute little story.

Becca, is a girl who comes from basically nothing. Her dad left a few years back, and then died shortly after, and after that, her mom basically went catatonic. Using alcohol, drugs, and sex to fill the void her husband created by leaving, Becca’s mom becomes an absentee mother, leaving Becca to fend for herself.

Off to the liquor store to buy her moms daily dose of alcohol, Becca run’s into a man named Lucas, in the parking lot who’s having some car trouble. She agrees to help him jump his car, as well as go on a date with him. What she doesn’t know however, is that Lucas is a world famous singer in a band.

These two develop a relationship really quickly. I’m a fan of a quick read with a good love story, but this was a little too insta love for me. Don’t get me wrong, I still loved the story and will definitely be reading the second book in this series when it comes out.

Lucas is, of course, absolutely amazing. He’s perfect in absolutely every way. Attentive, sexy, funny, sexy, amazingly sweet, and with the voice I wouldn’t mind listening too everyday…did I mention sexy? Anyhoo, he’s pretty damn fantastic, and I wouldn’t mind having one of him.

Becca and Luke face some pretty tough stuff in their short relationship together, and while I have absolutely NO idea what it’d be like to date a rockstar (insert sad face here) I found myself believing that the issues they faced, while Becca was on tour with Luke, were pretty realistic.

Overall, this story was pretty good, and she’s definitely got me interested in what’s going to happen next in their story!


BOOK EXCERPT

When we walk into the store, I can honestly say I have never dreaded shopping more.  I know he was right when he said I would need new clothes for his functions, but I hate that he’s buying them for me.  In all honesty, I can’t get them myself, but I’ve been independent for so long that it feels like a foreign concept to actually have someone wanting to take care of me.
Once we arrive at the women’s section, I head straight for the clearance rack like I always do.  Luke comes up behind me and spins me around to look at him.  “What are you doing?”
I look at him with confusion.  “Looking for clothes to wear when I’m out with you.  Isn’t that what this whole shopping thing is all about?”
“Why in the clearance section, Becca?  I’m not sure if you heard me the first time; I don’t care how much it is, you don’t need search through the leftovers.”
“And I told you that this all makes me really uncomfortable.  I’m letting you buy me the clothes but I would rather they not cost a fortune.  I don’t want you spending tons of money on me, Luke; that’s not why I’m with you.”
He groans in frustration and then narrows his eyes at me.  “This is not ‘Pretty Woman’ and you are not a prostitute, but you will let me buy you some damn clothes.  Now get away from the fucking clearance rack before I buy the entire store.”
I walk away from it and head toward the rest of the racks with my tail between my legs.  Over the next half hour I gather a mixture of dresses, skirts, and shirts and then make my way to the dressing room.  Luke hasn’t said a word to me since the argument and I have no idea how to break the silence.
I’m slipping out of the third dress I’d brought in with me when the curtain to the dressing room is pulled open.  I yelp in surprise and turn around to see Luke standing in the doorway.  “What are you doing in here?” I whisper.
He moves toward me without saying a word, closing the curtain as he makes his way into the tiny room.  He backs me against the wall and we’re so close that his breath on my neck is causing me to break out in goose bumps.
“I know you aren’t used to people taking care of you, but you’d better get used to it with me.  I take care of what’s mine, and you, Rebecca Chase, are mine.”

About Alexis Noelle

I love reading romance books! I feel like being able to lose yourself in a book in one of the more exciting aspects. The books I love to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. You should have an opinion on every character in a book. Whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.

I live in Philadelphia Pennsylvania with my husband, two kids, and two dogs. On top of starting a writing career I am a full time student, and a full time mom. I love spending time with my kids, although I have to hide the computer from them when I am writing! I love being active and being able to do any activity outdoors.

I have always thought as an author the most important critic is your reader, so I would love to hear from you. If you read the book and loved it or hated it, tell me. As long as it is in a constructive way I will always answer and interact with you. I want fans to feel free to tell me what they want for the characters in the story and what they want to see happen.
