Eep! Another great read from one of my favorite authors! I was so excited to hear that Brooklyn Skye was going to be writing a novel for Entangled’s Lovestruck line and boy- was it ever awesome! But before I get into my review, here’s some information about the book!
As far as Declan Waterford is concerned, women are off limits-at least until he can earn enough money for his brother’s surgery. The dueling piano gig at Vegas’s Masquerade hotel barely pays enough…but if Declan can convince his boss to promote him, he’ll be set. And the Senior VP of the hotel’s gorgeous daughter might just be the “in” Declan needs.
Between drowning in mistakes at her editorial internship and fighting off her father’s demands that she relocate to Vegas and join his hotel empire, Melody Sumner doesn’t have time for love-or one-night stands with sexy Irish piano players-no matter how appetizing Declan is. But even though she knows he’s only interested in her for one reason, the intense chemistry between them has her thinking dangerous thoughts…
Miss Riki’s Review:
This book was everything I love about Entangled Publishing’s Lovestruck line. It was cute in all the right places, with romantic moments that made me swoon. This book was equal parts fun, sexy, and smart and I just loved it so much.
First off, let’s talk about Declan Waterford. OMG- I was hooked right away by this sexy Irish musician, but as soon as I heard his compelling backstory and found out his reasons for being in Las Vegas in the first place, I was 100% on his side. Not only is he drop dead gorgeous and sweet to Melody, but he’s hell bent on doing right by his brother back home. I loved his singular dedication to his cause and could feel the burden he carried from a moment gone wrong in his past. I’m all for a tortured hero, and Declan was everything I could ask for.
Then we have Melody Sumner. This girl is all sorts of sweet, and I felt terrible for the way she kept messing things up in small ways with her internship. Brooklyn Skye has this way of creating characters that you just can’t help but root for, and Melody is the type that you want to be besties with. I wanted to give her a hug and a pep talk! She needed a morale boost in the worst way, and luckily Declan was just the man for the job.
The chemistry between Declan and Melody is sizzling. After reading this novel, I have a new appreciation for piano lessons! (Seriously- that scene is so amazing!) Brooklyn Skye knows how to turn up the heat in a romance novel, and the bedroom scenes in this book (or should I say piano scenes?!?) do not disappoint. This book is sexy as all get out!
Of course this book has a HEA (It is Lovestruck, after all!) and it is everything a romance reader could possibly ask for. The grand gesture is swoon worthy and it is a wonderful conclusion to a deftly written love story.
Brooklyn Sky is already on my insta-buy list, (seriously- if you haven’t read STRIPPED- get on that. It’s AMAZING.) and this book is yet another wonderful romance from her.
