When you’re a rock god, fame and fortune are your two best friends, but they can be fickle bitches. Everyone wants a piece of me and I have no clue how to deal with it all. I’m being sued, pressured to sign contracts, and fending off rabid women who want to steal my virtue.
Well, not that I really have any virtue, but still… my life has turned completely bat-shit crazy.
That’s why I need Emma Peterson. She got me out of a bit of a jam once, and I know she can do it again. The only problem is that sweet, prim and totally straight-laced Emma doesn’t want anything to do with me. Not professionally, and certainly not personally.
It’s not that I want her in that way. Let’s be realistic… it would take a crow bar of epic proportions to get her to spread those legs for me.
No, I only want her legal expertise and for her to make sense of my crazy world. It’s a good thing I have just the leverage to make her do my bidding, because her refusal is not an option.
After recently reading a few intense books from Sawyer Bennett, it was nice to pick up one that was⎯for the most part⎯nice, easy and laid back. SEXY LIES AND ROCK & ROLL definitely fell into that category.
Emma is a very intelligent young woman, but she’s also very insecure. She won’t believe a hundred compliments given to her, but she will believe⎯wholeheartedly⎯a single negative remark aimed her way. She’s also a loner, preferring to spend her time surrounded by books and legal paperwork instead of people. Evan is a manwhore, sleeping with women whose names he doesn’t know and then rudely kicking them out the next morning. His first scene was eye-opening and I wasn’t sure if I was going to like him, but you quickly get to know him and understand why he does what he does, and your heart breaks for him a little. At times he was cocky and arrogant, but in a cheeky and fun way that you can’t help but like him for.
Evan and Emma are like fire and ice, total opposites of each other, but somehow they just work. He helps bring her out of her shell and she becomes someone he can trust completely. I was quite surprised when the first night of sex between them was done behind closed doors, because I don’t recall Ms Bennett ever doing that before. I’ll admit I was worried we’d never get an actual sex scene, but this is Sawyer, so I should have known better. I thought the conflict was believable⎯albeit a little predictable⎯though I didn’t like that Emma dragged it out because she refused to listen to reason. It comes with a HEA epilogue, but I was hoping for a bit more of an ending as I would have loved to have seen a glimpse of their lives a few years down the road. SEXY LIES AND ROCK & ROLL is told in dual POVs, is a stand-alone and is a perfect way to spend a few hours of your day.
