**I RECEIVED THIS NOVEL AS AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW**
ROCK IT is the first book in Jennifer Chance's new series, Rule Breakers.
Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.
Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.
I really enjoyed this book, although at times, I just wanted to slap the hell out of Brenda, Lacey's boss. Brenda... well, she just came off as a cougar and NOT in a good way. She seemed to be trying TOO hard for Dante's attention, even when he made it PAINFULLY obvious he didn't want anything more than a business relationship with her. When Brenda showed up on the tour and all but took over Lacey's job for that night, you could just tell Dante was biting his tongue to tell Brenda to fuck off.
I also got angry at Brenda and Jim going through Lacey's personal belongings and using her teenage scrapbooks in a sense against her in the YouTube series following the tour.
Although, I did have to giggle at Brenda getting her comeuppance when Jim promoted Lacey.
While the book was fantastic, it was predictable to a point. You knew once Dante chose Lacey to be his manager for the tour, they would somehow end up together, at least sexually. Not saying that it's a bad thing... but it was obvious this is how the plot was going.
The sex scenes were hot, But Lacey really ticked me off by just walking out on Dante after screwing his brains out. It was plain to be seen Dante wanted more than just sex with her and for her to walk out on that infuriated me to no end.
Rock It is a stand-alone title, and will have no bearing on the second title in the series, Fake It (due 07.01.2014).
Rock It is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and iTunes.
Very fun read. I fell in love with most of the characters quickly and the story was well-written.
WOULD RECOMMEND: Yes
