4 Rocking Crowns
Rocked Up is the first book co-authored for Karina Halle and Scott Mackenzie. For lovers of the music scene and rock-star world, this book will be enjoyable.
Brad is lead singer of the band And Then and the hero of the book. Like all musicians, he is excellent at his craft and is courageous, especially when it comes to protecting Lael. Even with a rough background, Brad has turned into a really honorable and respectable hero.
Lael, the heroine, has always been on the outside of the music industry looking in as a result of her protective father, a music industry mogul. She, however, gets the opportunity of a life-time when she goes on tour with her favorite musician, Brad. While she has this overprotective father, she doesn’t let him slow her down. She chases her goals, and she spends a great deal of time earning her spot.
The story starts out with components of insta-love, but she is also a teenager, so who hasn’t had inst-crushes? When they meet again many years later, the connection is still there for her, and he quickly follows suit. The authors, however, use a bit of delayed gratification by making them friends before lovers, allowing readers to see them as a couple versus two people chasing physical gratification. The conflict is something readers will see coming, but it is resolved well, leaving the readers with an entertaining experience.
Rocked Up is a fun, light, and generally quick read. The mix of romance and comedic moments makes this one a worthwhile read.
