5 ROCKSTAR ROYALTY CROWNS
Sawyer Bennett has done it again! Sexy Lies & Rock and Roll is absolutely everything readers have come to love about her stories. With its highly entertaining plot, lovable characters, and fantastic writing, this book sits among my favorite Sawyer Bennett novels.
With the exception of the antagonist of the book, there is not one character in this book that I didn’t love. Every single person, even Emma’s dog is just simply fabulous and provided endless entertainment and laughs for the reader and bring layers to the main plot of the book.
Emma, the heroine of the story, is very unlike most heroines in a Sawyer Bennett novel. She is beautiful, but unaware of her beautify and incredibly smart, but she lacks confidence and is incredibly introverted and often unsure of how to act in social situations. These aspects of her character should be annoying, but I found them to be endearing, probably because the hero finds these aspects of her personality attractive, resulting in the reader’s perception of her to be influenced by his point-of-view. She struggles throughout the book with feeling adequate and worthy, and while some of her behavior, particularly at the end of the book is frustrating, it once again aligns with how Sawyer Bennett develops her as a character. If she would have reacted in any other way, there would have been inconsistencies in her characterization, so I was ultimately okay with her reaction to the big reveal. The one aspect that readers will like about her is that she has her limits. Even though at times she is a push-over or seems meek, when she hits her limit, there is fire in her, and these are some of my favorite moments.
Evan, the hero and rock star of the story, is completely swoon-worthy with his heart of gold and dirty as sin mouth. This man is absolutely everything that I love in a hero. He is loyal and dedicated to the people he cares about, he is into music for the sake of the music, not the fame, he is incredibly attractive with the perfect balance of confidence and arrogance, and the dirty mouth on this man will set readers on fire. His chase of and determination to win over Emma will have readers falling in love with his brand of romance, which just happens to have a slight edge of alpha tendencies. Readers will also love the way that he accepts Emma the way she is and loves her for it. Her acknowledges her introverted and insecure parts of who she is, but also sees the person she is underneath, and he never tries to push her for more or to change. He is one of my favorite Sawyer Bennett heroes to date.
Sexy Lies & Rock and Roll is an incredibly entertaining and romantic story. From the very first chapters, readers will be engaged with the plot, and the interest between the two characters is clear. Even If their set-up isn’t the most ideal of situations, the chase begins here, when Emma exposes the fire she suppresses daily. His intrigue in her starts their journey and his chase, and readers will thoroughly enjoy the journey with their banter, their interactions, and their encounters in the bedroom. There are parts of the plot that are predictable; however, that did not stop me from reading through my fingers because I just couldn’t bear to watch it all unfold. It hurt to watch, and that heart-twisting climax did not have a lower impact just because I saw it coming. Additionally, the resolution wrap-ups quickly, but Sawyer Bennett brings the story full circle, and the way she ends the story is the way the story began. As a result, the end of the story seems to complete the tale while staying true to the characters and the development of their relationship. These little areas, however, do not detract from the over-all entertainment of the plot, as I couldn’t stop turning the pages and devoured this book in one day.
Sawyer Bennett is hands down a go-to writer for me. I love her heroes, her heroines, and her stories that are filled with the perfect blend of sweet and dirty, and Sexy Lies & Rock and Roll is no different than what I have come to love about her books. This is another must read for her fans, and if you are new to her, this is perfect place to start, so make sure you one-click this highly entertaining romance today!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
From NYT Bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, comes a SEXY new stand alone romance…
When you’re a rock god, fame and fortune are your two best friends, but they can be fickle bitches. Everyone wants a piece of me and I have no clue how to deal with it all. I’m being sued, pressured to sign contracts, and fending off rabid women who want to steal my virtue.
Well, not that I really have any virtue, but still… my life has turned completely bat-shit crazy.
That’s why I need Emma Peterson. She got me out of a bit of a jam once, and I know she can do it again. The only problem is that sweet, prim and totally straight-laced Emma doesn’t want anything to do with me. Not professionally, and certainly not personally.
It’s not that I want her in that way. Let’s be realistic… it would take a crow bar of epic proportions to get her to spread those legs for me.
No, I only want her legal expertise and for her to make sense of my crazy world. It’s a good thing I have just the leverage to make her do my bidding, because her refusal is not an option.
*Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll is a hot, romantic comedy stand alone.
