Review + Rating
3 out of 5 stars
I have to be honest I was pretty disappointed that this wasn't wholly and solely a Nicole Falls series. Despite that this novel kept me pretty entertained. 

Rocki is a Hollywood starlet with a sordid scandal threatening to take everything she's worked so hard for. Seth is her bodyguard--he's determined to protect her by any means necessary.

I liked Rocki and Seth. Their romance was quick--kind of passionate, and solid. 

This wasn't my favorite of the two--but I definitely had fun with, especially with the family dynamic. 

I don't like meddling overbearing parents in my personal life--because if I want to live raggedy, I want to do so without my mother's watchful eye.

But, for some reason meddling, overbearing parents in books are like puppies to me. I find them so cute. 

Rocki's mother was adorable and so was her Dad. I actually would have liked more of them. I can think of a few parents from books that need their own spin-offs. But I digress. 

I don't really have much to say about this one. But, it was a quick read. It has just enough spice and romance to satisfy any reader. It's not as humorous as Nicole Falls' book one, but it's a good addition. 

I'd recommend it.


  1. Sorry it wasn't exactly what you thought it was but glad you enjoyed it all the same.

  2. I'm the same with overbearing parents and family dynamics in books. I love reading about them. Glad you enjoyed it even though it wasn't entirely what you wanted it to be.
