David is known as the Gentleman of Rock. He also has a thing for Thea, the band’s publicist. Only problem? Thea doesn’t date clients, even if that client is David, who would never hurt her. David only wants her and is a friend to her when her boyfriend cheats which puts him in a bad place. He gives her time to heal, but when he finally asks her out, she shuts him down cold. What’s a guy to do besides ask Thea’s half-sister how to handle it. She gives him a great idea: memos!

David starts courting Thea through email memos with reasons she should give him a chance. He charms her heart and makes her rebuttal each of his emails with reasons why not. But David has his ways of making her see his side. The two are made for each other and the romance blossoms with a few problems along the way.

I loved the courtship through emails with debating going on. At times they were cute and witty and sometimes serious. The story is short, but I loved David to pieces. He comes from a working family that allowed him to pursue his musical dreams when he had scholarships for colleges with better job prospects. Thea also came from a working mom who married a man who became Thea’s father. They showed Thea what love was and how she shouldn’t settle for less.

The story is pretty short and to the point. I loved reading a story where the characters weren’t obsessing for too long, dealt with issues and gave me a few giggles along the way.

About Nalini Singh

I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • Ahhhh, he sounds great. I love the idea of a gentleman rocker and that he used the memos to court her.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It’s a cute novella!

  • oh this book is so good!!! I just love these two together. Have you read book three yet Rock Hard? That one is my all time favorite of the series. But David and Thea—-are so adorable. Glad you liked it so much. I do like seeing how talented Singh handles the various genres she writes in.

  • Fantastic review this sounds soooo good. I have not yet tried a contemporary by this author

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I stumbled upon it by accident, but I have loved this contemporary series by Nalini Singh. Now I just want the last band member’s story and for it not to be so messed up like I think it will.

  • I like the sound of how David start courting Thea, there is something fun about the slow build-up and the memos sound like a fun way to handle that. This sounds like a fun one!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      He was so sweet! Something happens the tarnishes is reputation, but really he didn’t do it, so it’s a lot of trust for Thea to have to give him. The best part were the memos they kept exchanging.

  • I so need to move these up my tbr pile. I love when there are emails or text or other types of written correspondence.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It was so cute to see the memos go back and forth. You don’t need a whole lot of back plot to get into this one and they are so cute and hot together.
