Recently Read & Recommend. #R&R
I’m starting a new regular feature here on the blog.
1 – to help me get my ass over here and blog more
2 – to talk about the thing all of us love most BOOKS!
I’ll be sharing a recently read book that I’d recommend to any fellow book lover. As you can see from the post title I’m calling it R&R. 🙂
Up first is a fellow Aussie author I got to meet in person for the first time at the Australian Romance Writers conference at the beginning of August. Claire Boston was so sweet and nice and while I’d had some connection with her online and I’d seen her first book I hadn’t picked it up. Meeting her made me WANT to read her book. Cool effect to have, right? Wonder if I can get that to rub off…… 😆 Anyway, let’s talk book!
What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?
Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock God, Kent Downer, and that’s the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his Australian tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.
Until Libby Myles walks into his life.
Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer’s niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it’s the rock star that’s the issue.
Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone’s good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he’s out of costume he’s different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it’s a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.
But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there’s more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …
I loved the twist on a tried and true character. We’ve all read about rock stars. Kinda hard not to at the moment. They’re everywhere! But Claire’s rock star is different. He doesn’t have the usual alcohol or drug demons. Don’t get the wrong idea, he’s got demons but they’re…..different. 😆 You’ll have to read the book to find out how. 🙂
You can get What Goes On Tour at the usual places –

So who’s read a book recently where the author put a twist on premise or the character? I’m looking for some recs so hit me with them.
