Blackthorne By Lexxie Couper
Rhythm is in his genes. She is in his heart.
Heart of Fame, Book 8
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.
Blackthorne is Josh’s story. We knew at the end of Getting Played that Josh would be taking his dad’s place in the band and that the band is now called Synergy. Blackthorne starts with Josh going on stage for the this first time and then jumps forward 5 years to the present.
Caitlin meets Josh when he is trying to jump the line to get into her club by claiming to be Josh Blackthorne along with his friend Rhys, a famous soccer player. Security called her up front because why one of the members of the most famous band in the world be at her club without security when the news was just reporting them somewhere else?
Josh has to prove who he is by calling her uncle, who is the one who brought Caitlin into Josh’s world (via pictures) and insisting that he look her up next time he is back in Australia.
The chemistry between these two is huge, even when Caitlin is fighting it, trying to remain true to her missing fiancé for no other reason than she feels it’s the right thing to do for her, for his family, etc.
Of course who can resist chemistry like that (and Josh Blackthorne) for long? In true Lexxie Couper form this book is H-O-T. The spicy scenes between these two are absolutely melt your panties amazing.
I honestly thought the antagonist in this book would be Josh’s stalker, because I went into Blackthorne without reading the blurb, I kind of wish there would have been some more related to that in the story. Even with wanting that, the book was incredible.
I really enjoyed it. Josh was the perfect rock star hero without the mega ego that wants everyone to bow at his feet. I think he is now my favorite member of the band.
All in all, great book! I read it in one day, completely engrossed, wanting to know what was going to come up against this couple and how they were going to deal with it. Great romance, awesome rock star story!
Thank you so much for my copy of Blackthorne!
Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.
When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.
Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly.
Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.
