It’s not the act. It’s the details…

Incredibly tight-lipped and painfully private, Anthony Phoenix has been known to make lesser women cry. Luckily, Summer Staite is by no means a lesser woman. It’s her job to know his type—rich, handsome, famous and used to getting what he wants. A dangerous, seductive combination. Luckily for her it’s not the man she’s after. It’s his story. A story that’ll earn her the respect she craves—one they tell her is impossible to get.

“They” have no idea how far she’ll go.

With his freight-train vocals, dark intensity and brooding good looks, Anthony is well aware he presents a challenge to the brazen columnist from Stripped Magazine. Yet she intrigues him more than he cares to admit. Beneath her soft, girl-next-door fa├žade, she drips with the kind of sensuality that makes him edgy. High. And completely stupid.

Stupid enough to let her get into the act…and under his skin.

Imagine you’re a writer in search of the story of the century and rock star Anthony Phoenix is that story. Now imagine he’s completely unwilling to give you that interview. Such is the life for Summer Staite. What’s a girl to do? Read Rockstar and find out.

I love Ms. Adair’s style of writing. She writes a crisp story with intelligent, witty characters. Although I found a few of the descriptions a bit hot for some readers, I found it hard to tear myself from the story. The reader can relate to the characters on so many levels. We all deal with misunderstandings and the threat that a simple accident can totally rearrange our lives. I respected Summer’s decisions when dealing with Anthony and rallied for them to work things out. As a hero, I liked Anthony’s split persona. Outwardly, he’s a rock god, brooding and edgy. On the inside, he’s still just Tony, the guy who wants unconditional acceptance and love.

If you want a searing hot read with a sexy musician and an independent woman, then look no further than Rockstar. You’re in for a treat. I give this novella 5 books.
