Review: Heartstrings (Rock Star Romance #1) by Hadley Danes


She’s made all the right choices, and always plays it safe, she’s a good girl and a Registered Nurse for Christ’s sake.

As Julia prepares to settle in for another typical 12-hour shift in the ER, she’s ready to handle anything…That’s before Slade Hale rolls into her life…on a stretcher surrounded by 15 doctors and nurses.

To her he’s just another patient, and a cocky asshole Rock Star with an ego. Or at least that’s what she thinks.

When she’s assigned to be his personal nurse, Julia suddenly feels out of her comfort zone. Slade is the most beautiful man she’s ever seen in person and even in his vulnerable condition he seethes of raw sex appeal. When he starts to wake up, that’s when the real trouble begins…Julia desperately attempts to fight his charm and wit, to stay professional, to keep the upper hand…

But she’s no match for this man. He’s untouchable and he can have whatever he wants. He knows it and she knows it. Will Julia risk everything…her career, her life, and her heart…all for a Rock Star?

This New Adult Romance novel contains mature themes, strong language, and sexual situations. It is intended for adult readers.

Initial thoughts before starting the book:

I have a weakness for Rock Star books… and Motorcycle books… and any book with the guy having lots of ink. This book falls under that group so I just gotta read it!

Is he going to be one of those rock stars that was living up the life then he sees “his woman” and he no longer wants groupies? Is he going to think he just needs to sleep with her one time to get her out of his system? Is he going to devise some plan to get her to go on the road with him?

Gotta read the book to find out!

After reading the book:

I have to admit, I was kinda disappointed with this book. At just over 100 pages, it felt to me like it ended before it’s time. I don’t know if the following books in the series will be about other members of the band or will continue with Julia and Slade’s story. I am hoping their story continues because I was left completed unsatisfied.  The book had a slow start but it was still a good story. I don’t regret reading it or anything. I just wanted more.

This is a quick read but not necessarily easy. As I said, it was a slow start and as it was really picking up steam it was the end!

(edit on 17Nov2013) – Author Connect: I can’t find any links. All I found was this site talking of a ghostwriter. How disappointing.

Some other good Rock Star books:

Sinners on Tour series & One Night with Sole Regret series by Olivia Cunning
