Take Me Home Tonight (Rock Star Romance #3) by Erika Kelly
A rocker gets a taste of unexpected passion in the latest red-hot Rock Star Romance from the award-winning author of I Want You to Want Me.
Calix Bourbon might seem like a free spirit, but that’s all a front. In reality he’s just trying to keep his fractured family together while working as a session musician. When Blue Fire hires him to replace their keyboardist, Calix is determined to make the most of the opportunity—but he can’t help being distracted by the band’s sexy personal chef.
Mimi’s temporary gig is great, but she has her heart set on auditioning for a televised cooking show. There’s just one problem: she only has a week to acquire the skills necessary to survive the competition. Luckily, the band’s new keyboard player can teach her exactly what she needs, in the kitchen and in the bedroom...
4 out of 5 stars
Wonderful story! I adore this series! I thought this was a really great read and couldn’t put it down.
The beginning was a bit slow for me as all the details were laid out but I was totally invested because they were terrific details. I liked Calix and Mimi a lot, both so loving and caring. They had such a strong attraction to one another that had a lot of push and pull going on and I enjoyed the build of their growing connection as they figured out the things that were holding them back. I felt there was a subtle, slow burn to their relationship. They had a wonderful chemistry together that really built and it created a nice amount of heat and want.
I really liked Calix but he was battling some serious inner demons so even though I felt for him, I got frustrated with him and some of the choices he made as he was figuring things out. This however creates a nice amount tension and drama and it leads to some really fantastic, emotional moments. Loved his family and all the healing that was happening and how Mimi played into that. It created a lot of sweet, hopeful moments that made me happy.
Erika Kelly has a way of really pulling me in and making me feel invested in the characters lives. There were some smaller story lines happening throughout and I really enjoyed how they affected the main characters. I loved that there were updates on the other band members and girlfriends. That made me super happy.
Loved the ending and all the emotion that went with it, it wrapped up nicely. It was a really good story that got better and then was excellent. It just had a really great build throughout to a fantastic conclusion. Excellent story line, well rounded, detailed, full of emotions and passion with amazing characters. Another awesome read!
