What Goes on Tour by Claire Boston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?
people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent
Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential,
especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old
niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian
finds himself in a bind.
Until Libby Myles walks into his life.
has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her
parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary
job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect—the pay is
fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it's the rock star
that's the issue.
Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's
good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when
he's out of costume he's different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a
far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between
work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if
she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.
But when a
horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there's more
heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must
figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of
the show …
This was completely enjoyable. Once I started I just couldn’t put it down.
I’m a huge sucker for rock stars so I was immediately drawn to this. I loved Adrian/Kent. And he was in a unique situation. After the death of his brother and sister-in-law, Adrian became the guardian to his 10 year old niece. And Kate was awesome. So much fun. Often times in books, kids come off as plot devices that do nothing but keep the couple apart. They are a reason why they can’t spend time together. But in this case Kate was what brought them together.
I secretly love it when one of the main characters is an author. It’s like we get a secret behind the scenes scoop of what an author goes through to write a book. And I loved it that Libby got Kate into writing and talked her through writing her own story. My only complaint about this was that we didn’t get to see Libby actually read Kate’s story. I would have loved to see her reaction to it.
Overall, this was such an enjoyable book. It drew me out of a book funk when nothing else appealed and I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
