repetitively seemed to be reoccurring themes, and it just dragged everything out interminably for meFor the first time in years, a woman had my complete and undivided attention For the first time in years, a woman fascinated me For me this book could just use a really good dose of ninja editing, to cut out a lot of the random and regularly overly flowery stuff to move up the pace of plot development a bit, and repetitive information sharing I get that two of Kinky Shine have pierced eyebrows, it didn t need to be bought up so much, and yes I got that Dex likes Aviator sunglasses overload pared down, most readers have decent memories so don t need to have something revealed or reiteratedthan a couple of times, to remember it as the story progresses We don t need to like each other to work together I liked some of the banter between Dex and Harley, but again it all got a bit lost with the lengthy internal monologues from both of them about how the other was making them feel, their growing attraction to each other etc Sadly not a winner for me on this occasion.ARC provided via Netgalley, and I wish I could provide apositive review Contain Spoilers 3.5stars I enjoyed

sexual buildup was HOT Their chemistry was yummy I thought together they were great I loved the band guys Their banter was funny and I liked how they were all there for each other Now Maxen hero s best friend is a manwhore and normally I wouldn t want to read his book but I think I might try it all the guys books are a maybe I think Otis was the one to party hard but we dont see him with lots of women just I think kissing one or two amd beckett wastamer only seen him kiss one girl I think Epilogue was sweet but I wantedSafety Ok so it was pretty safe Hero has been celibate for 2 years and hasn t had real sex for 7 since high school Now there is a reason why though Let s just say he had trust issues from the past that affected him getting hard lol He does mention how he was good with his fingers and mouth sorry Soonya lol he tried to have sex a handful of times but could never cum so for the last 2 years he is abstinent Now I have to mention this and I don t think my GR friends are going to like this because I didn t, during that time right before he was celibate his band mate paid a hooker to give him a bj to see if that worked but of course it didn t I really could of done without that that s one of the reason I didn t rate it higher it stuck with me for a bit But herione is definitely the best ever he says itthan once I do believe she is special to him I didn t get that he was a manwhore at all even before his little problem.Heroine had two boyfriends The last one she broke up with a year and a half ago which is the last time she had sex She doesn t do casual sex or ONS She does say she enjoyed sex very much before but it was never like it was with hero They both are each other s best No OW OM drama Well hero best friend teases hero and says she s hot and he wouldnt mind banging her etc It was all kinds of funny No mention of condom use in the past but I m positive they always did they always used them together.Thank you Book Bosomed for the recommendation Rocker books scare the shit out of me So much opportunity for drama and angst Thank goodness this book stayed away from much of it Dex had something bad happen to him in the past I know I cannot relate, but his issues seem out of proportion to what happened It was strange his mother issues were never discussed with the heroine I felt that was a plot hole Otherwise, I thought his issues were handled well and not so fast that it was unbelievable Anyway, Dex is a grumpy sexy ass He has maj Rocker books scare the shit out of me So much opportunity for drama and angst Thank

issues were never discussed with the heroine I felt that was a plot hole Otherwise, I thought his issues were handled well and not so fast that it was unbelievable Anyway, Dex is a grumpy sexy ass He has major head issues and cannot understand his attraction to Harley So he is mean, hot and cold mostly cold and very negative and insecure But somehow he still manages to be HOT Harley is pretty cool A bit young for me to really identify with A bit annoying at times,insecure than her attitude suggests, but she handled Dex really well Towards the end I thought she was going to do something to piss me off, but thank goodness she did exactly the right thing I am so happy the author did not take a cheap opportunity to addneedless drama The rest of the band was intriguing I am not sure about Maxen s book He is such a manwhore, I am not sure I will enjoy his book Especially if his heroine is someone he already knows I mean he screws everything that moves I just cannot see past that for someone who has had to witness it.All in all a solid rockstar read Not too angsty but there was a bit Absolutely no OW OM issues There were some editing issues Based on some word choices I could tell author was not a native English speaker but still extremely well written Oh and I LOVED the epilogue It was sweet and just what I needs to wrap the story ( Free ) ⚒ Dex ☪ She succeeded in making him feel like a man A normal functioning man when he hadn t felt that way in years Who re you f cking When my father, manager of the worldwide phenomenon Kinky Shine, asked me to come and help the band members appear approachable I never thought my first meeting with Dex Bowers would start with such a question Immediately, I wanted to strangle him, wipe the smirk off his face and force him to mutter than three words But there s something mysterious about him that was electrifying and the he pushed me away and angered me, the I wanted to know him and push through his hangups Trust That f cking trust thing didn t come easily to me In the five years since my band became famous, not once had I been photographed with a woman I knew it fed the supposed mystery surrounding me, but the real truth was far humiliating than I was comfortable with That was until Harley Floyd walked in and I was left with a mind numbing lust for her that scared me shitless It should be easy to let go and trust her just enough to have fun, to be happy I could finally come up with new material for our next album But nothing was easy and with a life made of sex, drugs, and rock n roll I wasn t sure if anything could last Not even my band What twenty five year old was f cking lost when his cock was rock hard when close to a gorgeous woman One answer to that a man who hadn t had sex in a really long time For readers overonly I really loved both MCs by the end and the secondary characters I thought Dex s reaction to Harley keeping something from him for one day was a bit OTT All in all this was a good read and I look forward toKinky Shine books.

A rock star who doesn t fuck is an anomaly ThisI loved how Dex broke the typical rock star manwhore mold I simply adored this premise It was far sweeter and sexier than reading about a guy who has bed a lot of women Kudos to the author for taking this muchoriginal angle Dex is a keeper, a total book boyfriend For the first time in years, a woman had my complete and undivided attention For the first time in years, a woman fascinated me And I was hard as concrete The characters, really all of them, not even just Dex and Harley, pulled me in and came to life As a rocker romance, it s just as much about the band sticking together as it is about Dex and Harley making it work The band s banter was fun, and I enjoyed how the supporting characters mostly geared them in the right direction Harley is a strong female character who isn t pushed around That s always a plus with the heroine But Dex, especially, was pretty enthralling as the elusive bad boy rocker who s tormented by his past broken and yet the tone keeps it engaging and somehow hopeful, allowing the story to avoid getting bogged down with too much heaviness There is a great balance of serious issues alongside a super sexy story She rocked my fucking world with just a brush of lips Oh and is it hot The author definitely knows how to build up the heat and doesn t disappoint with the steam factor I m going to strip you naked and then you re going to get on all fours on the bed There is no mistaking the chemistry between Dex and Harley long before they even get to that point I was fanning myself at midnight while reading And I really liked them as a couple That s not to say that Dex and Harley didn t both irk me in certain places with the way they handled different situations or that they always treated the other how they should have, but overall they were good characters who were growing and those little hang ups moved along quickly There s no strung out angst here Told via Dex and Harley s first person point of view, Dex is the first book in the Kinky Shine series, which features each member of the band Maxen s story is next ARC received in exchange for an honest review Release Blitz 5 3 I think I just found my new rock book boyfriend When first meeting him you may not think he would be worthy of that title but once you know how everything in Dex s life made him you may change your mind too Dex is the front man for killer rock band Kinky Shine He gives you that dark and brooding character that you aren t too sure you want to approach but his stage presence and sexy swagger makes you want to have your way with him.Harley comes into Kinky Shine s existence because she is a popu I think I just found my new rock book boyfriend When first meeting him you may not think he would be worthy of that title but once you know how everything in Dex s life made him you may change your mind too Dex is the front man for killer rock band Kinky Shine He gives you that dark and brooding character that you aren t too sure you want to approach but his stage presence and sexy swagger makes you want to have your way with him.Harley comes into Kinky Shine s existence because she is a popular music blogger and is hired by the band s record label to help the guys get themselves out there on social media Harley is familiar with music since her dad is manager for Kinky Shine but don t let that take anything away from her professionalism since she had been on her own living in New York creating a very popular music blog Harley s first meeting with Dex sets the tumultuous tone for the beginning for Dex and Harley Dex, without knowing who Harley actually is, was wondering who she had to sleep with in order to get this interview with him and Harley thinks he is the biggest jerk around That s the thing about Harley she is a strong female who doesn t let the rock persona have any effect on her She is there to do a job with this band and they damn well better listen and do what she says.Dex has some issues that no one would ever guess with him being this larger than life sex symbol Only his band members know of his problem and have tried everything they could think of to help him through it The guys are probably the first to see that Harley may be that person to help Dex out It is hard for Dex to trust but slowly Harley starts to break his walls down Will this rejuvenate Dex s ability to write music for their next album since he has had writers block for some time now Is Harley able to see past Dex being such a jerk and help him and his band through some hard times I have to say that for as many rock romances I have read, and believe me I try to read everything with a rocker in them, this was one of the better books I loved the push pull between Harley and Dex along with some of the background for the other guys in the band I cannot wait to hear each of their stories too because this band has a lot that s being hidden So if you love rockers and some pretty hot scenes this is definitely a book for you I know I have just found myself another author that I m looking forward to seeing what she can come out with next.This book was provided as an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review 3 starsI am little disappointed with this one.I liked it at first, Dex and Harley seemed liked great characters and I really like that Dex wasn t your typical rock God But thebook carried on, it was just too much about sex for my taste It missed something, that feeling when you read a book and you are so absorbed into characters, to me here it was just too much about physical plus the thing that bothered me the most was that Dex wasn t too much protective of Harley, I am not saying he 3 starsI am little disappointed with this one.I liked it at first, Dex and Harley seemed

he wasn t the little bit, but for example when his friends talked about her as a piece of meat I would like that he said don t talk about her like that he did once but I wanted hero who would shut up every guy that talk like so have you fuck her yet bla bla so they could see how much he cares about her and the thing that I absolutely hated was when one of his friends told him you can do much worse then herI MEAN WTF and he just thought about it instead of punching him in the face I am exaggerating but you know what I mean I don t know It could be one great book, it has broody kind of mystery hero my favorite but sometimes it was too childish, I mean males acted too childishedplus I think word grin and chuckle were mentioned 1000 times
