Brooklyn Rockstar (Kendalls #1) by Jennifer Ann

Sexy bad boy Charlie Walker had everything he could ever want as a rockstar: a platinum album, a cushioned bank account, and an endless supply of groupies desperate to have him. But things changed when the band's drummer went missing, forcing Charlie to go it alone and question if he truly has what it takes to succeed in the business.

Small-town girl Evelyn Kendall has just arrived in Brooklyn Heights. With a new job and her best friend as a roommate, she's ready for an epic adventure free from her family’s constant supervision. She's not prepared for the muscle-bound, tattooed star who appears out of nowhere and rocks her world.

When Charlie locks gazes with the freckled brunette at his first solo gig, he falls hard and fast for reasons he can’t explain. Determined to keep Evelyn in his life, he’s ready to change his ways, even if they run blood deep. But will their instant attraction be enough to weather the storm brought on by the perils of fame, Charlie’s secrets, and Evelyn’s overly protective brothers?

Warning: This book is filled with sexy bad boys and strong leading ladies. If you’re looking for an engaging read with panty-melting love scenes, then you’ve come to the right place.
Review Copy

4 missing brothers out of 5
At first glance, this is your typical virgin meets rock star sex god. However, Charlie's career is not on the up and coming. It's failing, and failing fast. His band has fallen apart since his drummer went missing. His solo career is not going well. Then he meets Eve, and everything feels right again. So yeah, basically your typical virgin and rock god fall in love, but there's a twist. But you have to read it to find out what!

I liked the book overall, but the time jumps were confusing. The climax felt dragged out, because it was fairly easy to guess what happened (to an extent). But, the end was definitely unique! Eve is so sweet and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her in the future books in this series centering around her brothers. 

It is kind of unbelievable that Charlie would be having threesomes and various other sexual exploits and then one day see this girl and think "Hey, I want to have a committed monogamous relationship with this girl." But, how mad would we be if after he met Eve he was still sleeping around while getting to her know her? Super mad. Everybody would be wielding their feminist pitchforks telling Eve she doesn't need any man, especially one that's had sex with basically everybody. 

Anyways, back on track, you should read Brooklyn Rockstar if you love rockstars, sad, lost heroes, and heroines with overprotective brothers!
