What happens when the gentleman of rock decides to play dirty?
A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band's publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.
The only problem is Thea doesn't date clients - or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she's not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies - even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.
What she doesn't know is that David is a one-woman man...and he's madly in love with her. David's determined to prove he's worth the risk and willing to court her step by exquisite step. Thea's about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.
Rock Courtship is a scorching hot romance with relatable characters, and the narration is so well done it was even better to listen to than to read!
My Rock Courtship review:
When I first started reading the Rock Kiss series, I enjoyed it, but I absolutely loved Rock Courtship! David is such an amazing character, he’s the gentleman rocker, and he’s been in love with Thea for a long time. She’s been burned in love before, though, and has made her new policy one of not dating any musicians… When David starts showing her just how much he wants her, though, it’s really difficult for her to resist. Writing her memos instead of love-notes brings her attention to a peak, and I have to say David has a certain way with words!
Keef is an amazing narrator, the way she changes her voice to show whether it’s David’s or Thea’s point of view is so well done! Rock Courtship is a very hot tale, where a lot of the action takes place in the memos Thea and David send each other – and when they finally get together for real, the hotness is completely off the charts! I already fell in love with the characters when I read the story, and Keef brought it to yet another level for me. And for once I didn’t blush (much) while listening to the smexiness, either.
If you’re into musicians, fast-paced romances and complex characters, you should give Rock Courtship a chance. Between the humor, the romance and a little dash of drama, there is not a single moment that isn’t needed to move the story forward.
Some of my favorite Rock Courtship quotes:
Introduction: In which I, Thea Arsana, explain the flaws in your argument, per your memo titled Reasons Why You Should Give Us a Shot.
David knew he’d never cheat, but he also knew his promise wouldn’t be enough for a woman who’d already had her trust betrayed. Thea wouldn’t agree to be with him until she trusted him not to stomp on her heart. And the only way he cold prove his faithfulness was to be wit her, to show her that he loved her to the point of insanity. Catch-fucking-22.
He cooked when he was stressed: another man might’ve thought that was odd. That man probably hadn’t grown up in a home where the kitchen was the center of the house, warm and welcoming and always a little crazy.
