A rockstar romance novel with swoons, laughter and heartbreaking truths.

Anna: A one-night stand with a rock star isn’t what I had planned on my birthday. But Dan Darling, sexy and irresistible as he is, doesn’t take no for an answer. What follows? Five incredible days and a connection I thought I’d never feel. Until he leaves on tour. It hurts, but it’s nothing compared to what I've been through before.

Dan: The first time I saw her, I knew she was it. Then I doubted my feelings and believed they were only a product of my impulsivity. How can she love me when I’ve kept secret who I really am? Can I pull myself together enough to be with her and make it work? Is Anna the soothing medication I need to survive, or should I continue living my life one one-night stand at a time?

Darling is an emotionally charged, beautifully written rock star romance that is sure to make you laugh, swoon, and even cry. It takes a very talented author to craft such an engaging story that elicits that many emotions.  This book was not what I was expecting and I mean that in a good way.  I am not usually one for the insta-love trope, but the way this author portrayed Dan’s and Anna’s feelings towards each other and the progression of their relationship worked very well for the story. 

Anna is a woman who has been royally burned in the past and she carefully guards her heart. I didn’t warm up to her right away, but as the story further developed, I came to recognize her as a strong, resilient, and independent woman who is the perfect match for Dan.  It was Dan, however, who spoke to my soul.  I don’t think I have ever identified so closely with a character before and I am impressed with how the author addressed certain aspects of his life, thoughts, feelings, and interactions with those closest to him.  I cannot neglect mentioning the secondary characters in this book.  I absolutely loved the dynamic between the band members and I cannot wait for them to get their own books.

This author did a phenomenal job in creating a story that pulls the reader in.  She combines that right amount of fame with the ordinary and tackles a certain subject matter with great sensitivity and respect.  She has given a voice for those of us who experience something similar to Dan, but also illustrates how it affects those around him.  Darling is one of those rockstar romances that will stay with you long after you read the last page.  It was my first book by this author and in case you can’t tell by my review, it will not be my last. 

I received an early complimentary copy of this book.
