My rating: ❤❤❤❤ of 5!
While each book is a standalone the entire series involve all the members of the Sinful Serenade and thus, you’ll meet most of the characters in each book even as secondary characters. So, while it’s not necessary to read all the books, I’d recommend it to avoid spoilers and in order to connect with them all.
Pete is Sinful Serenade’s bassist and the last single member of the band. Now that everyone around him has found love, he should too. Or so his manager says. Pete isn’t in the love business, not after his heart was broken, so instead he hires Jess to be his public girlfriend.
Jess is a down to earth normal girl who’s dreaming of becoming a lawyer. She accepts Pete’s proposal, so her law school tuition is paid for. However, this gig turns out to be hard on Jess who doesn’t like to lie and things only gets harder, when she falls for Pete. Jess is very insightful and isn’t too good to point out her own flaws, which is what I loved most about her.
I really enjoyed this book and I fell in love with both Pete and Jess. As with the previous books, there’s a lot going on underneath their exterior, but what made this a really enjoyable read for me, was their personalities. They’re both wanting to appear strong and while their scorching chemistry isn’t lying, Pete still has a hard time realising what he truly wants.
The plot is standard and ticks off all the boxes needed for these kinds of books:
- Boy meets girl
- Instant attraction
- They get to know each other
- But oh no, complications arise and misunderstandings/secrets are blown out of proportion
- Someone is sorry
So, don’t get your hopes up – this is not a new spin on that. Yet, it’s still an enjoyable read.
