Rock Courtship by Nalini Singh
Rock Kiss #1.5
There was a lot less angst in this one compared to the previous and the characters came across as a lot more mature. I liked both of characters, especially David, but I just wanted more from their story.
Thea is damaged by her ex’s betrayal but she can’t resist David and this presents a challenge since trust is hard for Thea. David has been in love with Thea for a long time and since it’s a novella, Thea falls quickly as well. The two of them connect emotionally by revealing secrets and hardships from their past and of course they’re wildly attracted to each other.
I have always admired Singh’s ability to write a “full” novella that feels very developed even with a shorter number of pages. But this one just didn’t feel that way. It was by no means poorly written, I just expect better from Singh based on the novella’s she writes in the Psy/Changeling series. Rock Addiction and Rock Courtship overlap in time and it feels like you have to read both in order to get the full picture.
3 out of 5 stars
What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?
A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band’s publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.
Only problem is, Thea doesn’t date clients–or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she’s not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.
What she doesn’t know is that David is a one-woman man…and he’s madly in love with her. David’s determined to prove he’s worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea’s about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.
