Isabelle's best friend is getting married and guess who's the maid-of-honor?
Going to the wedding alone isn't an option, so when Isabelle's brother sends his buddy to her rescue, she can hardly believe who it is: rocker Marvin Clementine! He shows up at her door incognito, but nothing can hide the sexy smile that melts her spine.
At the wedding, he is the perfect gentleman right up until Isabelle's ex-boyfriend attacks him. When Marvin punches him in the nose, taking him down with one swing, what can Isabelle do except take Mr. Rockstar home and kiss his wounds until he's better?
Of course, one night of bliss isn't enough for her to overcome her fears. Marvin's celebrity lifestyle freaks her out, and it would be crazy to move to L.A., right? Especially for someone as shy as Isabelle. Unfortunately, she's pretty sure Marvin is her one true love…

As maid of honor, you need a date for your best friend's wedding. Your cheating ex is the best man and he's bringing the woman you caught him bonking on your dining table. Just the thought of going this alone has you feeling pathetic and depressed. Yeah, you need to line up a date…and if your brother just happens to have a sympathetic friend who's willing to help a girl out, and he just happens to be just a wee bit famous, well, you'll just have to rock that ugly bridesmaid's dress!
Curvy and shy Isabelle Reeves was dreading her maid of honor duties. It wasn't just the ugly magenta dress that made her butt and cleavage seem reminiscent of cotton candy or strawberry shortcake; it was also that she didn't have a date and would have to face down her cheating ex, a man whose insults still made her feel like an insignificant doormat. Luckily, Isabelle's brother Ian had a solution. His friend in L.A. offered to fly to New York for the weekend and pose as Belle's new boyfriend. No matter who Marvin Clementine was or what he looked like, Belle wasn't going to look a gift horse in the mouth.
With a haircut and dark glasses, Marvin Clementine made it all the way to New York without being recognized as Vin Clementine, major rockstar. He didn't know Isabelle Reeves, but he knew all about heartache and loss, so when his best friend in L.A. lamented his sister's dilemma, Vin selflessly offered to help Ian's sister out by posing as her new boyfriend at the rehearsal dinner and wedding. After all, with writer's block, he couldn't seem to put together any material for a new album and an incognito weekend getaway might just provide some needed inspiration.
Vin's clothes and haircut didn't fool Belle. Belle's shy nature and soft curves didn't turn Vin off. Vin's buff body and warm smile made Belle blush. Belle's ex made Vin's blood boil, but sweet Belle made Vin's blood run hot. Belle might be shy and retiring, but sacrificing an ugly bridesmaid's dress was no hardship when Vin convinced her to let him stay the night.
Only one night wasn't enough. But a wallflower can't live in the spotlight of fame and a famous rock star can't stay on top without it.
Mr. Rockstar is a hot and sexy short erotic romance that starts out warm and sweet and quickly climbs in temperature. Although Marvin and Isabelle are opposites in demeanor, they both have suffered family losses and have been unlucky at romance. Their weekend together in New York culminates with an explosive finale, but they attempt to end things on a casual note since they live on opposite coasts.
Yet, Vin feels the connection so strongly that he can't let distance and Belle's shyness and insecurities keep him from pursuing a deeper bond, so Vin sets about romancing Belle with new songs he's written about her. But Belle's fear of life in the limelight is a valid one that author Erin M. Leaf uses quite handily to create an obstacle to this couple's happiness.
Fans of the latest trend of rockstar romance will delight in this fun and flirty tale that boasts enough teeth to keep readers rocking through the pages, but be warned that bedroom scenes are highly charged with erotic detail and a bit of kink, including the mutilation of a very ugly magenta dress that involves a sexy rockstar and a well-utilized pocket knife. You might want the fire department on stand-by for the dress mutilation scene, and you'll likely feel compelled to seek out other smoldering titles from the wickedly talented Ms Leaf.
