3.5 out of 5 ‘Leap first, think later’ Stars
*takes deep breath* So, I’ve been invested in all things Pippa Grant. I’ve read about five or six of her recent books that can definitely be read as standalones but do have interwoven characters. Reading previous stories only provides you with extra insight (and a whole lotta of laughs and great reads!). And I mostly LOVE her stories. There were only a few that were just meh for me. I always look forward to her stories because most of them are uproariously hilarious and super sexy so when the sign up came out for this one, I was all over that!! I thought the story line was freaking brilliant….down-on-his-luck rock star kidnaps the bride-to-be of his adversary to use her as leverage to get what he wants back….freaking awesome!!! But Willow and Dax’s story kinda fell flat for me.
I have to admit that I felt similarly during Royally Pucked (Manning and Gracie’s story). It was just a little boring to me. And I hate to compare this to other stories of Pippa Grant buuuuuuuut, it’s just because I had a familiar pang of deja vu while reading these two stories. I was disengaged, and after a while I felt like I was almost forcing myself to finish. It just wasn’t a page turner. Willow’s non-profanity preschool lifestyle was cute but a little annoying. Dax was a broken rock star (I’m not sure there are any un-broken rock stars out there) and they couldn’t have been more different. And while I don’t think their differences was a huge issue, it just seemed so…..forced. UGH!! I hate when I can’t really give my explanation of why I wasn’t into it justice.
Everything came together and there were times I was really liking the banter between Dax and Willow. And I honestly can’t wait for the next Pippa Grant novel to come out. This just wasn’t one of my favs.

escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning
toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles. When she’s not reading,
writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be
productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
