I generally review romance, paranormal and urban fantasy. I tend to pick review books that I want to read, so generally my reviews will be positive. I always give my honest opinion: good, bad, and indifferent.
Note: on my blog I use a letter grading system. I've listed the ratings below. For sites with stars, I have listed the equivalent rating. If I didn't finish the book, I will not rate it with stars.

Rock Courtship is a novella in the Rock Kiss series which parallels in time to the first book of the series, Rock Addiction. It tells the behind-the-scenes love story of School Boy Choir drummer, David, and the band’s publicist, Thea. The pair were introduced and in the peripheral of Molly (Thea’s sister) and Fox’s story.
David has LONG lusted after and pined for Thea from afar. He sat and waited through her horrible engagement to her ex, and gave her time to grieve. The pair were close friends, and David has always wanted more. After the appropriate amount of time, he asked Thea out for dinner and she turned him down COLD.
Thea never dates rocks stars or her clients, even though David means so very much to her. But when he emails her an intellectual memo of reasons she should date him, Thea feels her barriers breaking for this man who holds the power to crush her heart.
The novella is sweet and mostly void of lengthy conflict. It fills in the details about a few incidents that were brushed over in Rock Addiction. We see how David and Thea deal with their own ghosts and work as a team to fight for their mutual love. Although the conflicts are not plentiful, the author uses them to help the pair grow closer together, rather than drive them further apart.
In the end, Rock Courtship is a quick, sweet love story with a smallish, yet decent conflict and resolution. The romance is hot and there are a couple of smokin' smex scenes. Like its counterpart, it is not necessarily realistic, but I enjoyed Thea and David’s tale and my return to the Rock Kiss world.
My Rating: B+ Liked It A Lot
