Book Review: Somebody to Love by Blair Babylon

Somebody to Love
Author: Blair Babylon
Genre: Rockstar Romance
Series: Rock Stars in Disguise
*can be read as a standalone*


It’s one of the rules of the rock and roll road: the musicians snub the roadies because they’re uncultured grunts, and the roadies hate the musicians because they’re spoiled brats.

Meet Tryp, the rock star drummer for Killer Valentine,
 the hottest band on the planet. He's young, he's rich, and his whirlwind life of liquor, women, and screaming crowds is perfect, just as long as he never sobers up.

Elfie Tilsi has been a pyrotechnics technician (don’t call her a “roadie.”) with the breaking-out rock band Killer Valentine for two years, ever since she ran away from home.

The musicians of Killer Valentine are starting to crack from the unrelenting stress and limitless excess of touring. When the band manager tasks Elfie with babysitting Tryp, she tries being a little kind to him and quickly discovers that his problems are far deeper than the rock and roll lifestyle.

Can the love of a rock drummer and the pyromaniac roadie survive?

4 stars  Somebody To Love is an engaging rockstar romance that puts you through all the feels. I’ve read a lot of rockstar books and for some reason, I always like the drummers’ stories best.  This book is no different as I loved the characters and the storyline.  I fell in-love with Tryp almost immediately with my heart breaking many times over for him.  He is a damaged bad boy who had quite the unique and not-so-great childhood.  He is strong, but also vulnerable and protective.  Elfie is feisty, caring also had a troubled past.  One of the interesting things about this book is that she is one of the pyrotechnic techs on the tour.  This is a profession that I was pretty clueless about and I enjoyed learning a few behind the scenes of what occurs during setting up and take down a concert set - especially when it comes to the fun flames and sparks and whatnot.  Somebody To Love has likable well-developed characters, an interesting storyline, some angst, some action, and moves at a great pace.  It is my first book by this author and it definitely will not be the last.
