Miss James has stepped up her game with Hillbilly Rockstar. Seriously, above and beyond! ~ Angeline, Guilty Pleasures
She’s protecting his body and guarding her heart…
Country music star Devin McClain understands there’s a downside to life in the public eye, but the laidback Wyoming cowboy has never imagined he’d attract crazed fans who would do anything to garner his attention. When veiled threats become real, he agrees to hire a discreet security detail. But Devin is shocked when that bodyguard is a hard-bodied woman. He’s even more stunned to be attracted to the steely-eyed stunner.
Former soldier Liberty Masterson’s return to civilian life has been wrought with challenges until she lands a job with a prestigious security firm. But when she agrees to provide personal protection during a cross-country tour, she doesn’t realize she has signed up to masquerade as the playboy star’s girlfriend. Though she’s more comfortable in combat boots than high heels, she has no choice but to appear to be the sexy groupie Devin prefers.
Living in close quarters causes the chemistry between them to ignite, and Devin realizes he wants to turn their charade of a romance into reality. Although Liberty surrenders to his every whim behind closed doors, she fears the sexy country star doesn’t see the real her; and Devin can’t help but worry when the tour ends that there might not be enough between them to build something that won’t fade away..
Review copy provided for an honest review
I loved HillBilly Rockstar! Not only is the writing solid, the characters are real. Having ready everything Lorelei James has available, I am familiar with her writing style and always enjoy her stories. Miss James has stepped up her game with Hillbilly Rockstar. Seriously, above and beyond!
Country music star Devin McClain has it all – good looks, talent, money, endless supply of women who throw themselves at him. When threats start hitting too close to home, security is beefed up.
Liberty Masterson is ex-army, compassionate, beautiful, funny and tough as nails. When she becomes Devin’s bodyguard, she (and he!) gets more than they bargained for.
Together they face zealous fans, crazy protestors and each other.
The life a country music star isn’t always what it seems. Devin will surprise you. He will melt your heart, make you fall in love and swoon like a school girl. Liberty has served in the army and has her own set of demons to work through. She calls it likes she sees it. Devin needs someone to stand up to him. Not because he’s a diva, but because that’s how the nature of the business has become. Old wounds open as new wounds are made.
Both have healing to do. Both have growing to do. Their friendship is real. What they find in each other is better than any other relationship they have ever had. Hillbilly Rockstar is a story of friendship, compromise, trust and love. I fell in love with these fantastic characters. Two of the best I have read lately.
Hillbilly Rockstar is hands down the best book in Lorelei’s Blacktop Cowboy Series (and I have loved them all!)! While these books can be read as standalones, as the series-gal that I am, I recommend starting with book one. It’s the best ways to learn the intricacies of the characters in all of the books.
Thank you, Miss James for another fantastic ride along the blacktop!
When you open a brand new Lorelei James book, you know you are getting a treasure like no other. This book is all that and even more. Yet again Lorelei has brought to life a world that few of us get to see in real life, and made it so believable. ~ KcLu, Guilty Pleasures
When you open a brand new Lorelei James book, you know you are getting a treasure like no other. This book is all that and even more. Yet again Lorelei has brought to life a world that few of us get to see in real life, and made it so believable. Never once did I question the realness of this story. The life of a country music star and his personal body guard is one a new one for me. I adore her writing style. I love that from page one I’m transported into a world all my own.
Devin has always intrigued me. He was this friend that all of the guys talked about, but we didn’t get to see too much of. Just small pieces of him in a few of the other books in this series, but what we did see told us that he was going to capture our hearts. Boy o’ boy did he ever do that from page one!! He is everything you would expect a country boy turned big time country singer to be. Sex on a stick, dominate, and a tad bit cocky. I love love love that Liberty puts him in his place, and doesn’t fall easy for him. She makes him work at getting on her good side.
Liberty is an amazing woman!! She is a combat veteran turned body guard. I love that she is tough as nails, but also has this inner soft girl inside. I adored watching the relationship between these two change each of them for the better. I think they complement each other greatly. Their road to happily ever after is a fun one to watch.
I can’t recommend this book and series enough. Truly these books are my go to recommendations when someone is looking for a new series to read. While this book can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend starting at the beginning. You will be glad you listened to me.
