What goes on tour, stays on tour or does it?
Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.
Until Libby Myles walks into his life.
Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan it's the rock star that's the issue.
Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he's out of costume he's different shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.
But when a horrible scandal is unleashed putting young Kate in danger there's more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show.

When author Libby Myles sees the softer side of rock star Kent Downer, she has no idea that she has caught a glimpse of his alter ego, Adrian Hart.
Circumstances allow Libby and Adrian's niece to form a close relationship, ultimately providing Libby some much needed funds while serving as Kate's nanny on the musical tour.
Since the storyline features a rock star, my expectation was that it would be an edgy read full of action. To my surprise, it was actually just downright sweet with very little spice.
The storyline centers around the Kent/Adrian dynamic because there is a huge difference between Kent the performer and Adrian the average guy. The drama occurs when the wall between his two identities comes crashing down and Libby is stuck in the middle. It's a fairly slow-moving and predictable storyline that appears to be PG-rated throughout, complete with a mob of reporters hot on the trail.
The writer has a smooth writing style with a good eye for detail. However, this was one story that could have used a bit more spice to keep the reader engaged.
