From the award-winning author of TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT comes the final story in her red-hot Rock Star Romance series, about a loner rocker finding his perfect duet.
When Cooper Hood left Snowberry, Montana ten years ago, he swore he’d never go back to the town that painted him with the same brush as his addict mother. But right in the middle of his band’s national tour he gets a call to come home: his mom’s got a whopper of a secret to reveal.
Daisy Charbonneau’s in trouble. The talent she hired for her resort’s annual Huckleberry Festival just bailed on her, and she’s desperate to find a replacement act. Luck turns her way when she discovers her high school crush is back in town—and he happens to be a rock star.
As they work together, a crush deepens into so much more, but who falls in love in two weeks?
Especially when Cooper’s never coming back to town, and Daisy’s never going to leave it.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

If the book had the been shorter, I might have liked it more. If Cooper had been a better character I might have also liked the book more, but more of that front later. 

I liked Daisy. She is a bring person. I didn't like seeing Cooper taking some of that light when he was "respecting" her. She stood up for herself. I want to see Lia doing that for herself. Wanna bet that she and Logan will have a book of their own a number of years after the events of this book. Logan will have feasted on the rock star life and the groupies and Lia will be still in their small town. Isn't that the set up of many second chance books? If that actually happens I will be very sad for Lia.

Let's move on the Cooper chapter now. He wasn't able to convince me that he was a worthy book boyfriend. He disappointed me and one of my hard limits was crossed when I read this. 

"Carrie might’ve gotten off by giving him head in the storage room..."

I wasn't in a moon for that kind of thing.

I was 38% done with the book when I read the following statement from Cooper and had some things to say to him. 

"Don’t you get it? I fucking respect the hell out of you.”

Yeah Cooper I totally get it. You had another woman give you head after you and Daisy had a moment, but you are keeping away from Daisy out of respect. Please continue keeping Carrie around so she can "satisfy your needs" while you are "respecting" Daisy. 

At 53% I read this 

"I’m not going to use a woman’s body when I’m thinking of someone else."

Isn't the mouth attached to the body Cooper?  Does Carrie have a separate mouth somewhere else? You are such a liar.

The book was mostly a disappointment, I was expecting more and the book didn't manage to deliver. I won't be recommending it.

Closing her eyes, Daisy bit into the crunchy drizzle, her teeth sinking through the buttery rich goodness of the bread. Oh, dear God. Her mom made the world’s best cinnamon rolls. With a sigh, she looked up to find someone heading toward her on the path.
Of course her childhood crush would show up the moment she’d stuffed her mouth full of pastry. Leaning against the hood of her car, Daisy chewed quickly—which sucked because, basically, time should stand still while savoring her mom’s desserts.
But Cooper wasn’t looking at her. Scowling at his phone, he stopped on the path, fingers furiously typing. Was he dealing with his mom?
Or maybe a girlfriend. Instantly her skin tightened, and her heart thudded. If Cooper had a girlfriend…God. Last night she’d gone on and on about how much he’d meant to her.
She looked away, mortification crashing through her system.
First, she’d bumped into him wearing waders and a fishing hat, and then she’d forced him to go out with her. Awesome.
He couldn’t have been clearer that he didn’t want to spend the day with her, but she’d gone and made an offer she knew he couldn’t turn down. Not if he wanted to get his mom’s house built and get himself back on tour.
Feeling a little sick to her stomach, she licked the sticky drizzle off her fingers and shoved the treat back into the bag.
As he paused on the path, thumbs working over the phone’s keypad, she took in his powerful physique. A white T-shirt strained across broad shoulders, hugging his thickly rounded biceps, and worn blue jeans cupped his hard, muscular thighs.
The colorful ink covering his body made him look like a total badass. She’d noticed a strange symbol on his inner wrist and a cartoon image on his forearm of a pin-up girl holding a barbell, a sexy slash of red for her lips.
The man he’d grown into made her soul wake up, and God, she couldn’t even remember the last time she’d felt this kind of fluttery attraction for a guy.
As if he felt someone watching him, he looked up sharply and found her. The worry lines eased. But he didn’t smile. “Hey.”
She pushed off her car. “You ready?” Forced or not, her plan was good for both of them. She was sticking to it.
