I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.
He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?
As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.
Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.
The world is clamouring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.
4.0 BABY DOLL STARS!!!
MUSIC CAN BE your friend when you have none , your lover when you’re needy . Your rage, your sorrow, your joy, your pain. Your voice when you’ve lost your own. To be a part of that, to be the soundtrack of someone’s life, is a beautiful thing. —Killian James, lead singer and guitarist, Kill John
HOLLER!!!Way to start a first book to a brand new series.
I am a sucker for a rocker romance story. I just love how music became a part of every character especially the leads and I just had this feeling I cannot explain everytime that music became even a part of me as a reader. Point is, I binge read this new book of Kristen Callihan. I mean I am used to her sports romance stories and all so I was really curious about Idol. Oooooohhh I love the blurb, this pretty what piqued my interest and this sums up and gives us an idea what Idol is all about.
Killian and Libby's story started off so hilarious. They met in unconventional way and to tell you right there and then I fell in love with the characters. They're just so adorable and I just like how their characters were portrayed. Each with their own baggage but each became someone's reason to move forward and let go with their own common denominator --- MUSIC.
I will not go on further discussing every detail so I wont spoil you. I would just stress out that once again Kristen Callihan delivers us a great story of friendship, inspiration, forgiveness, acceptance, letting go and falling in love. This might be fast paced - light read but I tell you I enjoyed every moment of it. The mentioned songs and the mentioned artists / legends in the music industry are a part of me too so that's an added bonus and I was pulled right into the story.
And man oh man...it's deliciously sensual. The sexual tension is just WOW and those scenes in the limo and bathroom???Fuck me!!! Those were a hooooot!!!! The author just have it written so damn good and she's perfect like that. However, I could have rated it 5 though except I just hate some parts of the scene between Libby and Killian pertaining their relationship and that there were parts that was a lil blurred for me nearing the end. But then overall, the story is a fun read. There might be flaws but just somewhat negligible because the storyline will grab you right in.
If you love a rocker romance read with a little angst, laugh out loud moments, hilarious scenes, sweet moments, sensual sex scenes and ooozing chemistry, then this is for you. Grab it and enjoy a full ride into Killian and Libby's awesome life together with the rest of the gang.
“You know,” I say conversationally, as I kick back, “I want to fuck you right now.”
Libby jerks as if pinched and sits a little straighter, before getting a hold of herself and slouching as if she’s completely chill. Cute.
She gives me a smirk and sips her water before drawling, “And what? Mark you territory? Assert your manly dominance?”
“Yep.” I slide my gaze to hers. “But mostly I just want to fuck you all the time.”
God, I love the way her lips part and body flushes with heat. So subtle, but there all the same. It makes me hard as steel, my balls squeezing tight. I don’t look at her but pretend I’m observing the room. The lights are dimming for the movie now, the empty chairs in front of us obscuring our lower halves.
Slowly my hand falls to space between us and smooths along her hip. She delicately shivers as my fingers trace down her thigh.
“What about you,” I murmur, lightly toying with her skirt in the darkening room. “You want to fuck me, baby doll?”
“Right now, I want to kick you,” she gets out between clenched teeth. “Keep your hands to yourself. There are nosy ass people everywhere.”
“They’re all watching the movie. Not us.” Focusing on the screen, I keep my expression neutral as I ease my hand under her skirt. Her skin is smooth and warm. The movie starts in a blast of music and the familiar old logo as I trace over her knew and up her soft thigh. “And that wasn’t a ‘no.’”
She makes a cute growl in the back of her throat, but her legs part just enough to give me room to delve between them. Her inner thighs are hot and damp, and my cock twitches.
The storyline rolls along, my touch idly roams. Libby remains utterly still but I can practically feel the tension vibrating within her. When the tip of my finger skims the crease where her thigh meets her lip, her breath catches, legs parting wider.
“Have I mentioned how much I appreciated this new skirt-filled wardrobe?” I whisper, lightly drawing circles along her skin.
“Brenna’s idea.” Her hips shift just a bit, following my touch. “Right now, I’m missing my shorts.”
I smile, my eyes on the screen, my fingers drifting to the edge of her panties. “Later, you can put them on and we’ll play ‘Fuck the Farmer’s Daughter.’”
She grunts, a stifled laugh, which turns to a strangled whimper when I pluck her panties. Her voice turns breathy. “I’m trying to watch the damn movie. I’m not interested in fooling around.” She moves a tiny fraction, nudging against my finger.
In the dark, I grin, heat and lust pulling my abs tight. “I’m sorry,” I saw, not sorry at all, “But I don’t believe you. I’m gonna have to check.”
