I’m married to a rock star.
And I don’t even know his last name.
There’s a tall, tattooed man in my bed.
Not any tall, tattooed man.
He’s a rock star.
A sex god.
And now he’s my husband.
Last night, I married Joel.
It’s ridiculous. I’m a good girl. I don’t get into trouble. I don’t look twice at bad boys.
I can’t stay married to a rock star.
But there’s something about Joel. Not just the way his green eyes light up when he smiles, or the way he makes me laugh, or the way he makes me shake with pleasure–
I’m not sure I can walk away.
Bella Chase is a challenge.
With the tight bun and the cute cardigan, she’s as prim and proper as they come.
My only plan for the night is getting her under me, screaming my name.
Filling her with so much pleasure she begs me to stop.
I didn’t plan on marrying her.
But now that she’s my wife, I’m not about to let her go.
Yes, yes, I caved and read one of these books. It was during one my historical romance marathons. I saw the book and requested it because the synopsis really piqued my interest. Because from the first moment, I thought, ‘huh, this would do well for a movie’. And I stand by that.
The truth is, I think Dangerous Rock maybe would even do better as a movie than as a book.
But that said, let’s judge the book, shall we?
I love stories where the characters are stuck in a situation and that’s where feelings begin to appear
I really love them. And what’s more binding than being married? I like how they don’t consider staying married right away. They approach the dilemma with realism. They acknowledge something weird happened the night before and begin making arrangements to fix it.
Bella is not all Oh, but what if I keep him and we love each other forever! at first. When you get married to a stranger, the next day, you obviously make plans to divorce his ass, or get an annulement.
But the writing became bland at times
Some dialogue seemed to go on and on, and I had to skip it. It just had no substance. None of that feeling that actually makes dialogue the best part. It became more annoying the more they talked, and this, I think was the main thing that detracted from the book.
Joel was too love-struck for my taste
This was something of a minor pet peeve, but I’d hoped to have both characters realize they should stay together more or less at the same time. Instead, Joel is the one who decides -too fast- that it wouldn’t be so bad staying married. Not that the guy getting attached first is any problem, but it just wasn’t what I’d been expecting.
