Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books Promotions and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


I’ve never been able to say no to my manager, which is probably why my band instated the No Bang Oath. When she asks me to star on a new reality dating show right before we go on tour, the last thing I want to find is love.  But since it was Kylie who asked, I say yes. Besides, I can’t turn down the exposure for my band.

As I forge connections with the women—including the show’s hostess—I can’t seem to shake Kylie out of my head. When I find myself at the center of a scandal, I don’t know what’s worse: the bad press or the disappointment in Kylie’s eyes.

How do I prove I’m not just another rock star before I hit the road with one of the biggest bands in the world?

My Thoughts:

Dax Hunter isn’t happy about the position he’s been put in.  It’s all about getting ahead – which didn’t earn any brownie points with me.  He feeds into my perception that some men in his profession like to have their cake and eat it too.  But he does have a somewhat redeeming quality but since it’s for his benefit I’ll have to sit on the fence for a while, even though it might get a little cold, as I watch the story progress.  Especially when I turn around and he has me feeling sorry for him. 

One disappointment I had was that I couldn’t listen to his band play as I read.  Not sure playing one of my all time favorite bands, Queen, in the background will have me thinking about MFB.  A playlist is mentioned but it’s part of a scene.  So I would say to think about what you can imagine the type of music his group might play and then create a playlist around that.

I liked how the author mashed up some reality shows to add a little spice to Dax’s life.  It gave me a few chuckle moments.  I loved seeing him squirm – doesn’t take much to make me happy.  Our author waits to get her readers involved with her reality show before she starts having him even begin to think of love or that elusive happily every after.  She stars out by including pictures and information about some of the extras.  It was a great way to get us involved – just like the television show.  Full disclosure, I hate that show – always have.  But by starting it later in the story was good for me.  If you’re of the same mind as me it may be for you too.

The author leaves us guessing as to what Dax’s present and future holds.  On the opposite end, she gives me the sense of how everything seems staged – which is what I felt about the actual show.  I liked how she didn’t give him a big personality because as you get to know him that just wouldn’t seem to fit.  You may have noticed that I didn’t mention a love interest.  In the spirit of the reality show I’m not going to mention a name.  Just like The Bachelor you will have to watch to see how things turn out after the show is over.
