Synopsis: 
Rhythm is in his genes. She is in his heart.

Caitlin Reynolds doesn’t care if the rock star lookalike trying to get into her bar is who he says he is. Sticking to the rules is a big reason the Chaos Room is the hottest velvet rope in Sydney.

Okay, so he’s freaking hot, but she’s been ignoring her hormones since her fiancé left her to go be a doctor in Somalia and then went missing.

After a shattered knee ended his promising soccer career, it seemed only natural for Josh Blackthorne to follow in his father’s rock-god footsteps. Now he’s a megastar, lusted after by women—and men—the world over. But he’s been in lust with Caitlin since he saw her picture years ago.

When Caitlin realizes Josh is who he says he is, she’s the first to make it right. But no matter how badly his seduction makes her want to melt into his arms, there’s a ghost hanging over their heads. A ghost who turns out to be not so legally dead after all…

Warning: Contains a rock star who’s livin’ the dream and livin’ it large, a self-made businesswoman with a weakness for a cheeky smile, and a red-hot battle of tormented wills. May stimulate a desire to throw your panties onto the nearest stage.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
I am new to Lexxie Couper's work and I've never read the previous novels in this series, but let me just say -- this was stunning to read and I'm highly intrigued with her writing style and plan to read the other books in this series.

This story follows a Rock Star named Josh Blackthorne and Caitlin Reynolds. Caitlin meets Josh as he tries to come into the Chaos Room bar, but she doesn't care much for who he is. She is engaged, but not only did her fiance leave her to be a doctor in Somalia, but now he's missing. Such craziness!

I found this book to be perfect in just about every way. The characters were funny and sweet. The drama was intriguing and the romance was on point.

Caitlin is hard working, heartbroken female. She has to learn to open up and love again after "losing" her fiance which is so realistic and believable because woman go through this in the real world. As sweet as she is, she was a very indecisive character which went well with this story.

Josh was such a headstrong, likable guy. I thought I wouldn't like him because he was a cocky, but I was surprised by how wrapped up I was in his character. I love how he made something else of himself after is soccer career fell down. I loved how he treated Caitlin as well.

Overall, this was an awesome book and I definitely plan to get my hands on the other books in this series!
