I believe that love is stronger than death.

That had become my mantra, my focal point in the last seven days, ten hours, and thirty-four minutes since the highway patrolman had knocked on my door.

I’m sorry to inform you that Michael Darby was involved in an accident and died at the scene. He listed you as his emergency contact.

The rest of what he’d said had been a blur.

At first I thought there’d been a mistake. Michael Darby and Mick Darby. I’d never called him Michael. He never called himself Michael. So maybe the cops had it wrong. Maybe there was another person’s life they should be destroying with this bad news that their lover was dead.

So I argued.

Then the officer calmly pulled Mick’s driver’s license out of the leather wallet I’d given him for Christmas.

And then I knew it was true.

Mick was dead.

How could he be dead?

How was that f*cking fair? He’d survived four wartime deployments overseas during his military career. Four years in hell. Only to be killed by a jack slipping and crushing him beneath the wheel of a car.

The injustice infuriated me. Mick being a good guy once again. The Samaritan who always stopped to help. Only this time his helpful nature had gotten him killed.

I wanted to yell at him for being so stupid.

But I’d never get to yell at him again. Or laugh with him. Or touch him. Or tell him I loved him.

He knew. Because you reminded him of that every day.

“Let us pray,” the minister announced.

ARC Review: Hillbilly Rockstar by Lorelei James- Blacktop Cowboys-Book 6

Hillbilly Rockstar

Blacktop Cowboys- Book 6


By Lorelei James


She’s protecting his body and guarding her heart….

Country music star Devin McClain understands there’s a downside to life in the public eye, but the laidback Wyoming cowboy has never imagined he’d attract crazed fans who would do anything to garner his attention. When veiled threats become real, he agrees to hire a discreet security detail. But Devin is shocked when that bodyguard is a hard-bodied woman. He’s even more stunned to be attracted to the steely-eyed stunner.

Former soldier Liberty Masterson’s return to civilian life has been fraught with challenges until she lands a job with a prestigious security firm. But when she agrees to provide personal protection during a cross-country tour, she doesn’t realize she has signed up to masquerade as the playboy star’s girlfriend. Though she’s more comfortable in combat boots than high heels, she has no choice but to appear to be the sexy groupie Devin prefers.

Living in close quarters causes the chemistry between them to ignite, and Devin realizes he wants to turn their charade of a romance into reality. Although Liberty surrenders to his every whim behind closed doors, she fears the sexy country star doesn’t see the real her; and Devin can’t help but worry when the tour ends that there might not be enough between them to build something that won’t fade away….

Devin McClain is a sexy and talented heartthrob, at the top of his game as a country superstar. He’s also generous, caring, and down-to-earth, having done his time and paid his dues to get to where he is. But fame doesn’t come without its share of crazy, and someone is gunning for Devin in a big way. When his bus driver is badly beaten, the powers that be decide that it’s time to call in the experts, and look outside the tour for extra security.

Liberty Masterson has been to hell and back, and she has the scars to prove it. Following a career in the military, reentry into civilian life has not been easy, but she has finally found her place as a security specialist. When she is tapped to guard Devin on his current tour, she thinks that she will be doing nothing more than babysitting a spoiled musician. Close quarters and a strong attraction soon having her revising her opinion.

I could not have loved this book any more. Lorelei has written a beautiful and sexy story that I could not put down until I’d finished. Watching Devin and Liberty navigate their relationship, seeing them grow to love each other, sometimes against their will, made for the best kind of love story. As each of them learned to accept things about themselves, and grow because of it, they became more free to be what the other needed. And, just so there’s no confusion, this book is off-the-charts hot. One of the things that I loved best about Devin and Liberty is that they both know exactly what they want from each other when it comes to sexy time, and they spend plenty of time enjoying it.

‘Hillbilly Rockstar’ is the first book that I have read by Lorelei, but it certainly will not be the last. This is truly a 6-star read for me, and I obviously could not recommend it more.

Michel’s Review

6 Stars

I am a huge fan of Lorelei James. I have read every single book she has published. Each and every book has been fantastic. I was highly anticipating the release of Hillbilly Rockstar, book 6 in the Blacktop Cowboys Series. Hillbilly Rockstar can be read as a stand alone novel or in series order.

Wow…Lorelei James knocked it out of the arena with Hillbilly Rockstar. It is by far one of my favorite books by this author.

Hillbilly Rockstar was an emotional journey for both characters. Devlin and Liberty had to face their weaknesses and strengths, accept themselves for who they are, and learn to share their hopes, dreams, fears, and hearts. The evolution of their relationship was truly beautiful. It was a powerful story.

Hillbilly Rockstar was sizzling hot. No one writes sexual tension, sexual chemistry, and blazing bedroom scenes like Lorelei James.

I could not put this book down ! This is definitely one of my 2014 Top Reads!
