Kozart Savage is the world’s biggest rock star.
At twenty-five, he’s got it all. Money. Fame. And the adoration of fans everywhere.
He thought that was enough to make him forget his past.
Enough to transform his distrusting heart.
Turns out that’s not how it works...
Then he meets a bridesmaid hiding out in a hotel bar.
Probably the only girl on the planet who doesn’t know who he is.
But she seems to be the one girl who can give him something no one else can.
Aubrey Prescott just discovered her boyfriend cheating—at her sister’s wedding.
Trying to escape humiliation, she seeks refuge in a hotel bar.
While trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of what was supposed to be an amazing senior year in college, a handsome stranger interrupts her wallowing.
A stranger who quickly makes her forget why she’s there.
One who, after an unforgettable night, disappears without a second glance.
But walking away doesn’t always mean letting someone go.
First of all, I have to be honest and say I really don't like the cover of this book. I don't think it conveys just how sweet the story is. How do you actually convey that? I don't know, so don't listen to me - I just felt the need to say it.
I found Kozart to be a fantastic rock star romance. I found it refreshing that there's this rock star, Kozart, that has an honest to goodness problem, insomnia, and has enough insight to realize that maybe he's not cut out to be the stereotypical rock god everyone wants him to be. Aubrey is also a breath of fresh air as someone who is strong willed, understanding, and willing to accept her feelings. This book was so short, but so good - I didn't feel cheated in any sense. There was even a part that made me want to cry real tears (the skateboard. omg, the skateboard), and I definitely felt the pangs of hurt as our characters head toward the path of wanting and trying to be together.
I truly believe that lovers of the rock star trope will love this book - but most importantly, it's a great introduction for anyone wanting to love the romance genre. This is what it is - it makes you hurt a little, but you know you're gonna be okay. How many things or people can actually give you that guarantee?
