Blurb: The star: Joley Drake was born with a legacy of unexpected magical gifts, but it was the gift of singing that made her an overnight sensation—a rock and roll goddess trapped by fame, fortune, and ambition. Heated by the flush of success, Joley could have any man she wanted. But there’s only man who can give her what she really needs.
The bodyguard: Ilya Prakenskii, cool, inscrutable, dangerously sexy, and working in the shadow of his infamous reputation—that of a secret Russian hit man on the payroll of a notorious mobster. He’s the last man Joley should get close to, yet when her life is threatened on tour she has nowhere left to turn. But in the seductive safe keep of Ilya’s embrace, is Joley really as secure as she imagines?
Review: I’m not that into this book and I’m not really sure why. I just don’t feel any real connection with Joley and Ilya. It just really seems like Joley is very dense, at least when it comes to Ilya.
It’s mentioned many times that he has all of the gifts, like Elle, yet everyone is surprised when he admits to being the seventh son of a seventh son.
I guess another reason why I feel the way I feel is because we had new people. I feel like I should have had a connection with them but I couldn’t because this was the first time seeing the band. Maybe if the author had put little glimpses of the band in the other books it would have been better but I don’t know.
The writing just didn’t seem as good for this one as the other books. I’ve always felt like this, all the other books are great but this one just falls short of my expectations.
The cover is beautiful but when I look at it, I just get this feeling like it’s not that great of a book. I’m still going to read this when I re-read the series sometime in the future but I’m not really looking forward to it.
The pace is a little slow and then speeds up near the end. I’m not really sure how I should feel about the Nitkin situation being resolved, it just seemed anti-climactic and just there for shock value.
Thank you for reading my review.
