Series: Bad Habit Series Book #1
Author: J.T. Geissinger
Blurb: Twenty something Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock ’n’ roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit…which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.
However, the fiercely independent Kat isn’t impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico’s model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video’s sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too—and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat’s world forever, or will he just break her heart?
Thoughts: As always, when one of my favorite authors decide to branch out into a different genre I have a moment’s pause….a little hesitation. There is always that lingering worry – will this book be just as good? While I have never been disappointed by one of Geissinger’s books, I always feel this way when author’s branch out. Don’t get me wrong, I love that authors are trying new things! But as a reader? Sometimes they are hits for me and sometimes they are misses.
Let me reassure you know though – this one is most definitely a hit! I honestly did not know what to expect when I started reading it. What I got, however, reminded me a little of a mash up between Jessica Hawkins Cityscape series, the Rock Kiss series by Nalini Singh, and the Shakin’ Dirty series by Tracy Wolff. You could feel the connection and the heat between Kat and Nico from the moment their eyes locked from across the room – and they have so many ups and downs in their relationship that page after page it keeps you guessing. There’s also a little bit of suspense thrown in there for good measure! To be honest though, I loved this one and found it really hard to put down. Can’t wait for more in this series from Geissinger not only do I love her writing, but she has managed to bring all these characters to life – I can’t wait to read more!
