Dex (Kinky Shine #1) by Stephanie Witter

Blurb:

She succeeded in making him feel like a man. A normal functioning man when he hadn’t felt that way in years. 

“Who’re you f*cking?”

When my father, manager of the worldwide phenomenon Kinky Shine, asked me to come and help the band members appear more approachable I never thought my first meeting with Dex Bowers would start with such a question.

Immediately, I wanted to strangle him, wipe the smirk off his face and force him to mutter more than three words.

But there’s something mysterious about him that was electrifying and the more he pushed me away and angered me, the more I wanted to know him and push through his hangups.

“Trust. That f*cking trust thing didn’t come easily to me.”

In the five years since my band became famous, not once had I been photographed with a woman. I knew it fed the supposed mystery surrounding me, but the real truth was far more humiliating than I was comfortable with.

That was until Harley Floyd walked in and I was left with a mind numbing lust for her that scared me shitless. It should be easy to let go and trust her just enough to have fun, to be happy I could finally come up with new material for our next album. But nothing was easy and with a life made of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll I wasn’t sure if anything could last. Not even my band.

“What twenty-five year old was f*cking lost when his cock was rock hard when close to a gorgeous woman?  One answer to that; a man who hadn’t had sex in a really long time.”

My Review:

Dex (Kinky Shine, #1)Dex by Stephanie Witter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book in a new series, about a Rock group named Kinky Shine. This is also a new to me author. I’m kind of picky about rocker romances, since there is a lot about that type of life style that I feel just don’t fit in a romance novel. I’m usually pretty hesitant to pick up a rocker romance from an unknown author. That being said, I’m glad I took a chance on this author, because this book was pretty great! Although it does get into the whole “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll” life style, it skirts around the edges enough to satisfy my tastes.

Dex is the front man for the band. He also has some pretty major trust issues. He has a huge attraction to Harley, right from the first meeting. But he acts like a jerk, probably because he isn’t sure how else to react! Typical male, really! He’s hot, and strong willed, but doesn’t know what he wants, or how to react to what he is feeling.

Harley is a music blogger, hired to get the band to use social media. (I know, right?!? Kinda hits close to that “if it could happen, why not to me?” fantasy) She is also their managers daughter. Despite a less than great first meeting, Harley can’t resist Dex. She is a sweet girl, giving, accepting of all of his faults.

Despite everything that is standing in their way, I was rooting for Dex and Harley from the beginning. This amazing book is unlike any Rocker Romance that I’ve read before. Not only is the story different, the entire feel for the book is different. Maybe less hard edged? I’m not sure, but I do know that I am eagerly anticipating the next story in the series! This author has me hooked!
